Always amazing food and cocktails here. Service was excellent and the bay views, from patio, were beautiful. Very expensive but quality food

Overall food was good but the portions are small for what you pay. My miso soup came after my main dish.

I have been in many Nobu around the world and love Nobu. This was the worst experience ever. The food had poor quality. My cod was terrible. All came cold and scattered. My son finished his food before mine came. My daughter’s food never came. I am very upset. My kids paid for that dinner with their hard earned money. It ruined my birthday! Will never go back

Waited for our reservation table for 45 minutes. When we finally got seated most of our food came out before our drinks and the entire dinner was complete in 25 minutes. We waited longer for our table than the actual dinner. Additionally, the restaurant was taking very few measures to prevent the spread of covid-19. Nobu was packed with people waiting and the tables were not distanced whatsoever. Furthermore, there was no enforcement on guests wearing masks when they were not seated. Nobu Newport really needs to get it together or they will be the next to close due to a Covid outbreak. However, pandemic aside, it was a terrible dining experience and I won’t be returning and I will be spreading the word.
