Nobu Honolulu Ratings and Reviews
Dinner for 2 on a Thursday night out. Service is very good and the food is excellent. Get your CC out and check the limit as the good stuff is expensive. We did a chef’s selection sushi boat which was excellent but too much food and $$$$. Always a great place.
I am a big fan of Nobu however this time the courses were less than desirable. The steak was not cooked correctly and two of our party were ill that evening after dinner. Service was great but the meal was not like it was at your last location. Very disappointing as I had told my family about Nobu for years and finally had the opportunity to have them all together in Hawaii to enjoy dinner.
We had a group of 5 & ended up ordering the Omakase. This was a first-time experience for most of us, & all of us enjoyed it! Very creative, innovative food preparation & tasty! Pleasing to the eye & palate! Eduardo provided wonderful service & accommodated 1 non-raw fish eater (me). I enjoyed all the new flavors & it was so nice to see everyone having a spectacular time!
Sorry, we forgot to take pictures!
The food is expensive and portions are very small, though most of our dishes were innovative and tasty.
However, the service was horrible. No one seemed to be assigned to us and the service was terribly slow and disorganized. The first waiter who appeared was clearly irritated and uninterested in explaining the menu.
This is supposed to be fine dining. But the service was just horrible, even for a low end restaurant.
Food was excellent and the presentation exceptional. Service was attentive but not obstrusive. Be prepared to spend money but well worth it. Valet parking easy from Auahi Street. Was not impressed with the bar. Server and even bar manager lacked personality.
Great fit out and excellent cocktails and food. Very expensive for food that is now available at many similar restaurants. Also the waiter refused to order a taxi and directed us to the street on a Sunday night where there were no taxis available. A poor end to an expensive evening.
The food was good but I definitely miss the old location. This location is out of the way, by itself, in a very commercialized area so you miss the Hawaiian ambiance. It doesn't even feel like Hawaii. There is a Nordstrom Rack and a Bed, Bath & Beyond nearby. Zero local flavor, shops or people. Entry to the restaurant was very production oriented. They wouldn't open the door until exactly 5pm so we were all standing outside. When they opened the doors you were ushered in like cattle. I love Nobu, but the uniqueness of Hawaii was lost on this location. There were no fresh air openings.
My husband and I came to Honolulu last minute for New Years weekend. We had been to Nobu Waikiki before they moved to their new location. And while the new spot isn't along the water, it is a LOVELY space. Upscale, elegant, and modern. From the moment we walked in the door to the time we left 2 hours later after a decadent Omakase experience, the service was exceptional, the food extraordinary, and the people watching? Well, let's just say having Pierce Brosnon 3 tables away made up for a non-ocean view! We will definitely be back next year. Thank you!
The restaurant is cool and the food was absolutely delicious. We have been many times before - 2 adults and 2 young kids. It’s always over $500 with a tip, so it was quite disappointing tonight when they served all the dishes so close together we didn’t even have time to talk. They were literally asking to remove dishes to make room for the next course before we had time to finish the first course. In a way it felt like we had ordered take-out. The waitress was asleep and screwed up 2 dishes which to their credit they quickly fixed. The rest of the staff seemed good though so I hope it was a one off. I must repeat how much we enjoyed the food. Oysters - great, sashimi- great, NY cut steak - one of the best I’ve had. We’ll go back despite the unpleasant service on this visit.
Nobu is a destination onto itself. The place is beautifully decorated, although the lights sticking out of the wood seems to disrupt the beauty, in my opinion. The seafood is very fresh and they have a great selection of sake and wines to go with the food. The only negative is the price. It is really way overpriced (one piece of uni sushi is $10 - ouch!) but if you can afford it, why not? If you do not care about the fine dining, ambiance, and service but just the good food, then you can probably find the same freshness somewhere else at 1/4 the price.
