Our favorite restaurant! The Yellowtail jalapeño appetizer is a must. Raw Oysters are excellent with their unique sauce. The hearts of palm salad with jalapeño vinaigrette is my all time favorite! We love the miso black cod! And the cappuccino mouse dessert is excellent! Nobu is our favorite Japanese restaurant! We love it and eat there whenever we get the opportunity! Oh, the Nobu Chardonnay is an excellent wine pairing with this meal!

We were skeptical because NOBU is very popular or full of hype hence we didn't expect the attention to detail, the amazing flavors and awesome service. We almost cancelled but decided to give it a shot. Food was very delicious and fresh. The Lobster tacos were pricey, and tasteful but left us yearning for more. Our main dishes did not disappoint and dessert was even better. Hopefully they start carrying Almomd milk/other milk options for coffee drinks but then again it's not a coffee shop, right? Thanks for having us 😁.

Overall good. The food and service was excellent. The atmosphere was now less casual than others that I have been to. They were slow on delivering drinks a few times but the waiter was knowledgeable and made up for the slow drink delivery. I would go again but mainly because the food was delicious

Don't go, there are at least 10 better restaurants in the area. Forget about the price, the service was bad and the food average, nothing special. I have been in different Nobus restaurants and this one is one of the poorest.

They forgot to bring out 2 items that we ordered. We had to tell them that they forgot. They offered not to charge us for the items! Which was nice since we didn’t get them. You would think they would have offered something else. Food was good but bad service since they forgot the 2 items.

We’ve been to Nobu in NYC numerous times. Houston was so disappointing. Terrible service on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was half empty. When visiting Houston I would not recommend. Food was good. Overall bad experience, left hungry as service was that bad!

Overall, Nobu Houston was nice to try for the experience. However, my drink order was incorrect, and the food was only okay, not great -- especially for the price. Nice ambiance, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Would potentially revisit for an occasion, but won't be adding it to my regular restaurant rotation.

I don’t enjoy attitude for not ordering alcohol. I also frown upon trying to make me order extra stuff to tax my bill...let the customer order what they want without the attitude. That makes the customer uncomfortable. The food was amazing but the server needs to learn etiquette.

The food was decent. There was miscommunication between staff when one dish was prepared faster than the other. We requested it be brought out together when asked, but the dish that was originally ready was not brought out with the other. They had to remake it because they may have given it to another table; so we had to wait another fifteen minutes for the black cod miso. I also let them know we were celebrating two birthdays knowing that they have special dessert for birthdays, but nothing was brought to us. Overall, I was not super impressed with my first experience at Nobu.

Nobu is incredible. This experience, unfortunately, just wasn't HANDS DOWN. The quality of the food was so good and the flavor of most was exactly as expected, but a few of the dishes we picked just were not the kind of flavor I'd want. We ordered the crispy rice cubes with spicy tuna, which was absolutely delicious. The Tuna Chirashi Bowl was also so delicious. Didn't love the smoked wagyu dumplings at all or the chilean seabass. In all, such good food, but be sure of what you order.

If you've visited any of the other Nobu establishments anywhere in the world, this one will not disappoint. A very beautiful space, with exceptional service and wonderful presentation, deliciousness in every bite, expensive if you go for the whole experience, but worth every cent...enjoy!
