    Ive probably been to 15 different NOBU’s around the world. Well over 100 visits in total. I live by the Indian Wells CA location so I go there frequently. It is without doubt the most disappointing of them all. Service is always slow yet they are informative and helpful but very slow and not attentive at all. I don’t like looking for the waiter when I need to find him or her for 5 to 10 minutes. Food does not compare to the other locations in flavor or quality. Seems to be a greater lag on order to delivery times then the others also. Yes I’ll still go back but if you’re looking for the Nobo experience and it’s your first visit, I would try a different location.

    So disappointed! We’ve been to Nobu in other locations as well as this one previously and this time was terrible. Food delivered out of requested order, or forgotten altogether, with no apologies! Had to ask about where the rest of our bottle of wine was when our glasses weren’t refilled. Water never replenished table cleared while we were still eating, waiters reaching in front of guests to hand dishes across table- couldn’t even get the basics right. Certainly not a fine dining experience - I’ve had better service at local burger joints. Spoke to the manager before leaving and it’s clear to me she’s a big part of the problem.

    The food is extraordinary. I love their cervice and their wagu sliders. I just tried the lamb chops. Although very expensive they are delicious. I love all of the varieties of raw tuna. Unfortunately this recent visit they did not have one of my favorites, the artichoke salad.

    This is our second time eating at Nobu. The first time was exquisite. This time we had the same food because it was so good the first time. The seaweed salad tasted like kelp pulled from the sea just before serving. It was way too fishy. The shishito peppers were tough and chewy and mostly very hot. Last time both these dishes were delicious. On a positive note, the black cod was excellent and so was the yellowtail with jalapeno. I wish it had been better, but something seems to have changed and not for the good.

    TLDR: Fantastic! Pricey. But it’s Nobu so what were you expecting? First time at any Nobu was at the beautiful Indian Wells Tennis Garden location to celebrate a wedding anniversary last night. We entered gate 2 from Washington St. as mentioned by other reviews and that was the correct way. At least three people guided us to the valet stand where we were quickly ushered to the (very brief) golf cart ride - it was windy so we appreciated the lift. and on to the elevator where two more people guided us to the hostess. Quick and elegant entry process from our perspective. We were a bit early for our 7 p.m. reservation and were offered the choice to head to the bar or be seated immediately which is what we chose to do. We order a couple martinis from the Japanese spirits list and they were delicious. From the cold menu, we ordered the Fried okra (excellent!), Seaweed salad (bland), Yellowtail jalapeño (excellent), Bluefin wasabi (excellent) and the waitress-recommended Crispy rice (good). From the warm menu, we ordered the Black cod which was very good but a bit heavy with the glaze, and the Albacore crispy onion (ok). To finish, we ordered the unbelievably delicious Date cake. Don’t miss this dessert. See the picture. Overall a wonderful experience and we will definitely return and not miss the other locations when we travel to those cities.

    By far the absolute best restaurant in the Coachella Valley. Great food and great service made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Highly recommend it.

    Did not have enough menus for us and they thought was funny Asked for ice water 3 times, finally got water without any ice. It took 2 more tries to get ice and they only brought ice for 1. At every turn the service was non existient. Going back to the valet the cart driver was going so fast and made an unnecessary hard turn that threw me halfway out of the cart and the guy behind me grabbed me and pull me back in and was yelling at the driver to slow down which he did not. Got our car and all the alarms went off and the valet’s were “oh,well read the fine print on the ticket“ I could go one but I don’t wish yo relive the evening.
