Nobu Honolulu Ratings and Reviews
Fabulous! Expensive, yes, but worth every penny. Beautiful presentation, wonderfully diverse tastes, superb service. Loved it, and will go back. But, we used Open Table for the rerevation and were given a “soso” table right next to the kitchen, which was disappointing. Maybe it is better to book directly wih the restaurant?
Nobu is overrated and over priced for what you get. The food is average. Do not go there to celebrate a birthday because they do not appreciate your business. Won't even get the birthday person a complimentary dessert. The food is overly salty and the cut of raw fish is not top grade, it had gristle in it making it tough. This so called 5-star restaurant is really only 3-stars at best.
It's way overpriced. The portions are too small. Our tab was $170 for 5 dishes, for 2 people & I was still hungry. They didn't give any comp. dessert for my bday, not even a scoop of ice cream (they just wrote "happy birthday" on my dessert plate & put a candle).
Been to Nobu several times; this was first at new location. The food seems to get better every time and is always incredible. From appetizer to dessert every course is a wonderful experience. That great food is also accompanied by outstanding service. Gets my vote for best restaurant in Honolulu
Great food and excellent service. Portion size was a little small but that’s to be expected at this style of restaurant. Nice selection of wine and craft cocktails but small selection of Japanese beer. Staff was professional and friendly. Bartenders Jessica, Liko, and Kenny set the tone offering great insight into the beverage menu as well as the offerings on the Restaurant Week menu. Well done and definitely recommend!
Went to Nobu because of the menu featured for Restaurant Week. It was superb! We felt that the menu was representative of what is available on a daily basis. We had a fantastic waitress and every server explained their dish when it was brought to us. There were several clean plate changes. The first dish was the scallops, very interesting and different. Loved the ahi salad, so delicious! The next dish was the lobster tempura. Each piece was yummy! The tofu in the miso soup was so silky! The dessert really blew us away! Loved the crunchy walnuts. Thank you for offering such a creative and delicious menu.
This was the first time we dined at Nobu since they moved from their Waikiki location. We were very impressed with the food and drink selections. Service was excellent. Our attentive waiter was very helpful in us deciding what to choose, and how many dishes to order. He didn't try to encourage us to order more than we needed. His judgement was right on. We loved each dish. The squid "pasta" dish had such a unique, subtle flavor that we had to ask what was in the broth. The dishes came up at the appropriate pace because the staff kept an unobtrusive eye on our progress. The guys in our group appreciated the extensive whiskey menu. Our big treat was that Chef Nobu was in town and he stopped by out table to say hello and took a photo with us.
Six yeas dining at Nobu Waikiki and now our sixth time dining at Nobu's new and most glorious nautical architectural design just outside Waikiki.
Tip: go at least 1/2 early for your reservation and have a Legacy at their gorgeous, romantic outside bar. Then head into their dining room for a culinary experience. It doesn't matter who your server is EVERYONE knows the inns and outs of every very complex dish( is the uni from Japan or Santa Barbara). Have fun with the menu which is broken into Classic/ New/ hot/ cold/ sashimi or sushi. You just feel pampered in luxury.
The waiter Ed is the best!!! I would highly recommend the yellowtail jalapeno dish, ma'o farm salad, wagyu tataki style :)))) Super yummy. I have been eating at 3 Michelin star restaurants since I was a kid and I highly recommend this restaurant. Never been disappointed!
We had the Honolulu tasting menu for 2 people. The food was great, another course was probably needed as some of the courses were only 2-3 bites. One thing that I was not impressed with was the disposable chopsticks. The total bill was almost $500 and to be given cutlery (chopsticks) that are the same as buying takeaway sushi was a bit of a let down. When paying for a $500 meal, you expect the best food, service and experience. Generally all three were great, however the disposable chopsticks did let the experience down. I would suggest using a higher quality chopstick in the future to improve the overall experience.
