The food was okay but nothing to write home about. Some of the drinks were far too expensive. I have been to many Nobus, and this one definitely did not rank the same.

Food was amazing. Service left a little to be desired for a meal that runs this high

The food is outstanding. The service was perfect. However it's embarrassing how overpriced everything is. It's a shame that they have to be so expensive. There are so many restaurants that have the same quality for 2/3 the price.

The food is good, but some dishes are a bit expensive for what it is. The service was fine, but not fine-dining level. Server forgot an ordered cocktail for over 20 minutes and didn't apologize once reminded. Another cocktail at our table was knocked over when nearly full, yet not offered to be replaced. The yelling of irasshaimase for each entering guest was a little obnoxious. Either way, we met some nice people at table next to us. It's a good place for people watching. We'll be back, but probably for HH or brunch.

Overall above average when comparing it to ALL restaurants. At the price point and comparison to like-restaurants, not excellent. View is awesome (harbor+mountains), service is good (somehow engaged but also disengaged, overall good), food is very good, serving sizes are appropriate. valet parking is seamless and just outside the front door. Areas awesome. Would return.

We had a wonderful dinner at Nobu and will definitely return. The General Manager, John Greer, met with us and was very gracious. Our server, Wesley, was just the best. He explained the menu and made some recommendations that were fabulous. This place sets the bar for delicious food, ambiance and outstanding service. We are already planning our return trip with some friends to enjoy it again.

Amazing food - taste and quality. Fish was presented beautifully and the seasonings/sauces enhanced every bite without overpowering. Satisfying but not heavy at all. Outdoor seating was great. Server was attentive but not in your face and did a good job following our lead as to level of interaction. We don’t want to eat sushi anyplace else now.

We were made to wait well beyond our reservation time despite open tables. DJ music and open concept made it so noisy that we could not carry on a normal conversation.

Nobu was a great experience on our recent trip to Newport Beach. Service and food were exceptional. Enjoyed the slightly more formal vibe from the other restaurants on the Peninsula.

They forgot to give us spoons for the miso soup and there was no soy sauce. Additionally, the table next to us was very loud, we had to almost scream to hear each other.

Service was the slowest I have ever experienced at a restaurant. The food was fantastic when we got it. Each course took about 20 minutes to get the next one after it took about 3 minutes to eat. The restaurant didn’t seem exceptionally busy that day so I am not sure why the service was so slow.

The brunch is always good. Been here couple times and here are some things I would go back for:

The steak was sooo juicy and yummy! Also the sushi was good. I usually go there for the OYSTERS!!! This time the oysters were not as good as the last time I went, this time oysters were bigger and we all know smaller oysters taste better... drinks are good, service is always on point! I dont do the rolls and the unagi no good. Was thinking to bring my son but he only likes unagi was trying it to see if its worth the price for him to go but unfortunately no...

Nobu is located in a nice area with a marina view. The sushi was good but the side dishes were not. The spicy scallops had no flavor and a bad odor.

The usual great food and service. This isn't the place to visit for huge rolls on a budget. Of course it's expensive - it's Nobu and it's in Newport Beach. I can't understand other reviews that complain about the prices as if they are surprised. If you like high quality fish, good cocktails and unusual sushi and asian food preparations you will like it here.

Finally found good sushi to eat in the OC! Moved from Colorado that had my ultimate favorite sushi place, Namikos. Moved to the OC for work and haven’t been able to find sushi that was on par with my favorite. Nobu’s fits the bill!
