Outstanding! Fresh ingredients prepared well. Service was also 10/10. Desperate for a few Wagyu dumplings now!

Our waiter had a body odor that was offensive and each time he came to the table I had to move a little so I was not too close to him. It wasn't pleasant.

We had the Honolulu tasting menu and it was incredible. Highly recommend it for the experience and flavors, unlike anything else I’ve ever tasted. So so good.

Amazing food with innovative flavors. Service was wonderful- very attentive. Ambiance was nice- somewhat loud but we were there for NYE so that is to be expected

Would have rated higher but ambiance was lessened by presence of a man sitting alone at a table close behind us. Not a customer. Appeared to be a body guard for a party behind a screen. Quite disturbing to non-dangerous civilians!

The vibe during New Year’s Eve was awful. The restaurant lacks so much character. Food was delicious...but I honestly could not wait to get out of there, the air of pretentiousness was stifling.

I had the mai tai which was salty and terrible. On the waiter’s recommendation and he suggested the cod with lettuce. This was awful too. I prefer the warm cod that I have had in the past. The ponzu rice with tuna was what I have read about but was one of the worst dishes I have had. It was something I would get at a fair. I had to order California rolls which weren’t better than a grocery store. My husband’s sashimi and sea bass was good. The drunken cherry dessert was good but not as good as in the past.

Nobu was such an excellent choice for the first night of our Oahu stay! The sushi was phenomenal, each roll had such a distinct, fresh flavor that we hadn’t experienced before. Ambiance was great and the waiters were very knowledgeable. We were celebrating our honeymoon and the wait staff even sent a complimentary dessert with “Congratulations” written in chocolate! Amazing dining experience, would definitely visit again. It is pricey so keep that in mind when planning- but worth every dollar!

Dinner was awesome! Great service and fresh food! I have been to several NOBU and I had one of the best meals. The A5 Wagyu beef was phenomenal and worth the price. Great menu selections and topped it off with a great dessert.

We ate Christmas dinner at Nobu Honolulu while on holiday from New Zealand. The restaurant is very stylish with attention to detail in the architecture. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and knew every aspect of the menu and drinks list. Our waiter was able to make recommendations based on our preferences, this was particularly useful for our daughter who is vegetarian. The food was outstanding, we ate predominantly seafood dishes and they were delicious and beautifully presented. We had a very special evening.

I would highly recommend the salmon nigiri. The fish is so fresh, that it practically melts in your mouth. I would also try the yellowtail jalapeño, fruit Sake, and bento box. They're all my favs.

Our server was extremely knowledgable about the dishes and made helpful recommendations. We were pleasantly surprised with the large portions. The food was all delicious, but the miso sea bass and jalapeño yellowtail were our favorite. The drinks were tasty, but a bit weak.

This review encompasses two visits. First was on 12/6. Everything we had was delicious and we left wanting to try other items on the menu so we returned a few days later. Don't miss the Nobu Classics, but try at least a few of the Nobu Now dishes. The Clams Tobanyaki was a revelation. Our waiter was exceptionally polished but not at all stuffy. His knowledge of the dishes and recommendations were first rate. Service overall was highly attentive, but unobtrusive.
These were not our first visits to Nobu and they certainly won't be our last!

Cannot say enough good things about this place. Always assume Nobu would go downhill after expanding, but quality of service and food is still great. Sat at bar to be more casual, and had one of the best bartenders we have seen in awhile.

Honestly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The service was immaculate. Don’t book an 8pm seating time if you want a long dinner though we were basically kicked out at 10pm.
Food was amazing and the vibe was awesome.

My friends and I had such an exquisite time celebrating my 20th birthday here! The $14 squid option was so delectable and perfectly cooked.. I must order that option again! The service and ambiance was fantastic, and special shout-out to all the kind servers including Eric, we appreciate your kindness & great to see you again! Always love Nobu restaurant!!!! Five stars always.

Lost our server and had to find assistance to order drinks. Came early and spent 2 hours trying to catch a waiter to answer questions about our dishes and order drinks. Dissatisfy and disappointing to say least.
