Honestly, expected a lot more for $90 a person. Food was bland, atmosphere sucked. The one good thing was the cod and there were none splinters throughout. Not thrilled. Will not go back again.

My 1st time at Nobu and my 1st time eating raw fish and I loved it. Great quality food. Little pricey but is worth it. Definitely recommend.

High expectations but was a little disappointed. This particular location has the proven potential to meet excellent standards but on my visit some things were not excellent. Staff attentiveness was not what I would expect at Nobu. Only after I received a raw entre of Chilean sea bass was my visit receiving appropriate attention. Aside from the sea bass, the dishes selected were excellent. The sea bass was prepared again and was excellent. We were not charged for the sea bass and the gesture was appreciated although I am willing and able to pay for a perfect experience.

The grand omakase menu was very good but the nori taco could have used a bit less guacamole. It overpowered the flavor of the nori (yes, seaweed does have flavor).

I usually do not like spending more than $200 on a dinner for two, but typically the food is nowhere close to as amazing as it was here.. Amazing experience all around, can't wait to go back!

Great service, fast seating (with reservation). Great attention from the staff; had a young man explain the menu, as well as gave me a few pointers and recommendations when ordering different kinds of food (raw and cooked). Overall very good.

Good, but not worth the money. Too much of just salt, lemon and sesame oil on everything. Missing some balanced flavors on the sweet side.

We had a wonderful family lunch; food and service was fantastic and consistent with our experience eating at Nobu (and sister restaurants) over the past 25 years. Hope to be back soon!!!

The food was absolutely outstanding. Very fresh and great portion sizes. The service was a bit slow, but nothing that ever became an issue. We did have reservations and it took almost 25 minutes to get seated. Not the end of the world and the dining experience made up for it. Would definitely come back again.

Everything was very fresh and tasty. Many unique options. A “to-die-melt in your mouth” dish was a lightly seared salmon appetizer. A must try!

The waitstaff push the higher-priced and well-known Nobu selections without first asking your likes/dislikes. They also double-charged us on a $35 dish, so make sure you double-check your receipts! No wonder they disappear after they drop off the check.

The food quality is good and original, though the quantity is small for the price. Ambiance is sleek and sexy and the seating is comfortable.

The money-hungry staff and the double-charge on the check ultimately put a bad taste in our mouths for the overall experience.

Honestly, the service was great and the food was all good, but for the money you're going to spend, you're going to wish you went somewhere else. Or 4-5 other places, as that's likely what you'll spend.

Other than the cool atmosphere and design of the restaurant I don't see the attraction to this place. I've had better sushi in Middle Tennessee and without any attitude from the server.
