The food was good. Unfortunately, when the restaurant charges high prices, they set a very high bar on food. One that Nobu was not able to reach. So, the food was good -- but at $110 per person, you expect the food would be great. It certainly was not. The value -- that is, food quality for the price -- was not there. If you are prepared to spend a lot of money on a restaurant -- more than $200 for 2 people, you can do better than NOBU.

At $195 each, the omakase is way overpriced. The raw fish was good,
but not exceptional. The wagyu beef had a string of tough unchewable connective tissue throughout. No way was this meal worth $500.

Ambiance of the restaurant provided the quintessential Hawaii experience since it overlooks beautiful Manele Bay. The open-air design of the restaurant makes it also perfect for those searching for an open-air dining experience during the COVID pandemic. Food & service were excellent. It was the perfect meal to end our honeymoon on Lanai!

This restaurant is SO BEAUTIFUL! It’s pretty much the basic Nobu menu, but with a few fun Hawaiian twists and surprises. Had the best experience and would absolutely recommend going before sunset to see the beautiful view

The food is excellent, however for the prices I expected better service: my husband wanted a new fork for most of the meal, but never had an opportunity to ask for one; No one came over to refill water glasses, etc. I had also asked to keep a menu so I could order more as food came—but didn’t get enough attention to do this.

The view, breathtaking. The service, excellent. The menu, vegan options were available, definitely a plus. Wish there were more vegan sushi options, but there were other vegan options available. So we had a mixture of vegan sushi and a vegan tofu dish. It was all very delicious.

Coming over from Maui for a staycation and first time trying Nobu ever. We were greeted by a very nice matre’d / mgr that wished us a happy anniversary. The server however never mentioned it or asked us if this was our first time dining. We were pretty intimidated with the menu so we just got what we knew & it would have been nice to have a rundown of the menu with items that are a “must try” and been described some “favorites”. Short ribs and Venison were 86’d!! Two items that we really wanted but were told an hr into our meal. Kinda bummed but we loved the saké, ambiance and couch-like seating. Bartenders were very nice and accommodating as we enjoyed drinks before our rezzy. Great speciality cocktails in fun glassware.

Our server was very friendly friendly but made two mistakes on our order. She mistook the our request for the miso black cod with the lettuce wrap and instead of tempura shrimp we ended up with garlic shrimp. I think I may have said I wanted it with the creamy garlic sauce
However she should have confirmed. We kept the order but it was not our greatest Nobu experience

We had an early evening dinner with our daughter to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our server was friendly and when we told her that we would need to keep an eye on the time as we had a ferry to catch, she ensured that our service was prompt and efficient, without ever making us feel rushed. The selection of dishes that we chose was delicious. We enjoyed black cod, local Lanai venison, crispy shiitake mushroom salad and a selection of different desserts including a Japanese cheesecake. The cocktail we chose - the Peruvian Caipirinha - was delicious - would definitely like to try to make one of those at home! I wish that we could afford to eat here every day - it is definitely on the pricey side - but so worth it for the quality of the food, the welcoming and knowledgeable staff and the overall atmosphere and ambience.
