Excellent Japanese cuisine
We had the chef specialty and it was prepared with perfection. We started with a sake flight and ended with the premium sake. Thank you for an excellent experience

Lanai is a feast for the eyes, it's beautiful everywhere so eating with the view is magical on its own. Having never eaten at Nobu we were up for it and ordered the signature black cod with miso and sat there just savoring, it really is a memorable dish. The waiter was nice enough to pair it for us with a wine that was bottled for this dish we found out, a Matsuhisa Chardonay. We started with 3 tacos that were teeny tiny, but delicious. It's a beautiful location with fresh fish, the food is excellent but we ate excellent food everywhere we went-this was fine dining excellent, it's the location that stole the show.

This is by far the best restaurant we have been to in Hawaii. The sushi chefs are personable and talented. Everyone who works there is friendly and wants you to have a great evening. The sushi was amazing. This Nobu has the traditional Nobu menu and offerings available only in Lanai and we tasted many of these - all delicious and wonderful to have something unique to Lanai. We have been to other Nobu and this one is outstanding, the best. Thank you for a wonderful evening, Nobu and taking such good care of us.

The food was ridiculously priced. The service was below average and we ordered omakase. Please look up the definition of omakase before trying to play this off to your guests. Underwhelming is an understatement

Exception views with average table service. Bar staff is much more engaging and friendly. Very expensive for the portion sizes and the Spicy Shrimp dish lacked any genuine flavor. Guests have limited dining options at the FS Lanai.

Darrel, our server, was very professional with contagious positive energy.

Hostess, Meghan, helped find us a seat quickly, and casually.

Great vibes.

Awesome views.

Edamame with sea salt hit the spot.

Tempura was fresh, light and delicious.

Saki was smooth.

Dessert off the hook.

This restaurant holds a true 5 star rating.

We ate here six nights in a row during our stay at the Four Seasons resort. The service - thanks, Stephanie, Darryl & Martine - was warm, informative and efficient despite a menu that encourages lots of small plate decisions. No problem. The food was excellent from the Brussels sprouts starter, to the traditional Nobu tacos and miso cod, to wagyu on lava rock and a killer shave ice dessert. And the view is simply spectacular. We thought about changing to the other restaurant (One FORTY) but always came back to why mess with success! Maybe we’re ruined by East Coast dining prices but some reasonable wine prices kept our tabs in the range you’d expect in, say, DC. A bit more robust wine list would be my only nitpick. Thank you for a great week, Nobu Lana’i!

滞在中に2度食事をしました。一度目は、ウェートレスのまどかさん日本からお嫁に来た人だそうです。二度目も英語しか話さない日系のサカモトさん、明るい男性でした。まどかさんはハワイの島々周辺でとれる魚を勧めてくれました。とても美味しかったです。
また二度目は、枝豆も食べました。とても美味しいです。
Nobuさんは年に一度ぐらいこのレストランに来るとのとこ。オーナーのラリーが来たときに対応するようです。全世界にNobuのレストランは50もあるから大変でしょうね。

I have dined at numerous Nobu restaurants and this is the first time I was disappointed. The food was good, but not great. We ordered Toro and it was very vein filled and tough.

The worst part of the night was the service. Once we were sat, we literally waited 15 minutes for someone to come and take a drink order! When food was delivered, no real explanation was given for the preparation and it was just dropped on the table. It really felt like an attitude of “Who cares. These people will be gone in a few days” was very prevalent throughout the service team.

This was our first time back to the Four Seasons Lana`i resort since 2011. So this new restaurant was a new experience for us there. They really did a wonderful job to include both Nobu classics from other restaurants as well as special local variations which were equally good. Service was excellent, and of course the beautiful tropical surroundings and outdoor eating made it extra special. This is both a special island as well as a special resort so it is nice that they have a special restaurant.
