Food is meh! Ok and nothing special, I swear to God but you could find so much better and actually Nobu in other places were so much better. Service was very weird, as if I’m in a neighborhood restaurant right after my gym workout lol and the last things are the cocktails - what a mess, nothing done the same and one of the glasses didn’t have alcohol inside - of course that the waiter replaced it with another one that was packed with alcohol and kinda killed my vibes. Nobu Nobu - but never again

Unfortunately there was a fruit fly stuck inside of my wine glass which the waiter instantly took the glass back and even took it off of the bill. As my sister and I sat down we had to keep fanning our hands back and forth over our food because there were many fruit flies flying around. I guess I was just expecting way more from this restaurant.

The wait staff is as outstanding as the food, from making excellent recommendations, to serving the dishes with care and explaining how best to enjoy each dish. The food is extraordinary, made and presented with care and the complex flavors seem so effortless with each dish. I love the experience of dining at Nobu!... worth every penny!

This restaurant is fantastic. From the front of house staff to service staff to bartenders to chefs - everyone makes you feel welcome. The food is unmatched. Don’t just order the same sushi you get everywhere - although the salmon literally melts in your mouth - but explore the fusion dishes and daily specials. The crispy black cod was awesome.
This is a home away from home for me.

The food was impeccable! We had so many different dishes, and each and everyone was better than the last. We ordered all of the specials which were absolutely the best move! Nobu truly does NOT make a bad dish no matter what it is. From the special Wagyu dumplings to the Red Snapper Sashimi special, to the PopcornShrimp, to the Cod special to the regular sushi, each and every bite was truly perfect! We have dined here numerous times and it never ever disappoints, but this dinner was probably the best we’ve ever had at any Nobu we have been to. Our server was very professional and attentive as was the whole staff. A wonderful meal and evening!
