Good original food, great waiter, ok atmosphere. A little pricy! Guess was all worth it.
The food was amazing and well worth the money. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing.
Food was flawless! Service was friendly, but inexperienced and noone seemed to have any knowledge about wine which seemed out of kilter for a restaurant of that caliber.
Enjoyed our first experience at Nobu. Our server was very attentive without being overbearing. He was quite knowledgeable with great recommendations. Overall the flavors were quite good, just a bit too much on the number of dishes with jalapeños. As much as I like ponzu, it was a bit heavy on the ponzu throughout the evening. Excellent selections of sake and beer. The Drunken Cherry Tobanyaki was a great finishing touch. A bit put off by the background music. Didn't seem match. Consider something along the likes of Wagaki and Hiroshima as part of the mx.
Nobu Honolulu had an energetic and positive atmosphere. The service was great from the moment my girlfriend and I walked through the doors. We had a reservation at 8:30pm, arrived at about 8pm and they said we will be seated closer to our reservation time and told us to wait out at the bar area, which we had no problem doing. The hostess came and got us maybe about 5 minutes later and sad everything was ready. The server was amazing, polite, and friendly. We had a great Valentine's Day there.
VALENTINE’S DAY 2018
A very special day and a very special dinner. As we always do we start our foodie trip with Two Legacy drinks at their outdoor gorgeous bar. Some of the best mixologists on Oahu. A very romantic beginning. Then we were taken to our table where we were first greeted by the entire kitchen staff. Our waitress was I think Trinity who has quickly progressed from a Server to a top waitress. We finished our Legacy and progressed to our favorite wine, a Loire Chenin Blanc, Savennieres which from the great 2015 vintage married Nobu’s very complex flavors. We picked two dishes from their Classic Menu and Two from their New Menu as we’ve done many times before. We ended up with an array of sushi/ sashimi and of course a soft shell crab roll. THE PERFECT VALENTINE’s experience.
Great sushi bar cuisine, nice atmosphere, great service. Probably the best blue fin Toro and I highly recommend the special tacos.
My husband and I had been to the Nobu Waikiki location several times and loved our experience. However, our experience at the new location was less than desirable. The service was subpar in all aspects of the house. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation. The hostesses were somewhat dismissive and we weren’t seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time only to notice that the restaurant wasn’t even half full. We opted for the chef selection menu ($200/pp) as we’ve had a great experience with that in the past. The courses were brought to us by someone other than our waiter who was in training and mumbled through the explanations and didn’t allow for conversation or questions. Our waiter was no where to be seen. The courses came out so fast that we were barely done with one before the next. It was like they wanted to turn the table so that they could get out of there. The decor of the new restaurant lacks the swanky posh feel of the old restaurant. In fact, it feels something like an upscale Denny’s. Very disappointed. Needless to say, Nobu will not be on our list of go to restaurants in the future. Very disappointing.
Pricy but exceeded expectations in all ways!
