OBON Sushi + Bar + Ramen at The Grove
Sushi was top rate, sake selection was excellent and server was personable and knowledgeable.
Great service - super quick.
Specialty sushi - outstanding
So was veggie ramen.
Jackfruit buns are crazy good!!!
Kelsey at the bar was great.
This is a great casual place with fresh innovative food, fun ambiance and friendly service. We will be back!
Lovely waitress! Helped to understand menu but should have warned us that the Nerd Cocktail was so named because of the huge amount of Nerd candies piled on what might have been a long let cocktail down beneath the candy! The bird bun was very good but quite small. We each had the Odon ramen but one was subbed out the spicy chicken for plain ground chicken. Both soups were spicy however. The soup included a slice of pork belly, a few mushrooms and some ground chicken. Ninety percent cent was ramen noodles and they became a bit monotonous. I guess we felt that $15 for a bowl of ramen soup, served with a plastic soup spoon , chopsticks and a paper napkin on a Formica table was a bit overpriced, especially considering that there was music filling the air. We had had a roll at the Scottsdale Quarter for lunch and enjoyed our experience, but this place is devoid of atmosphere. I felt I had been seated in a fast food place. As Happy Hour had ended at six, our cocktail and beer, together with the bun and two ramens became a $65 check.
I really enjoyed the happy hour menu, a ton of options. It was a group of 8 of us on a “quadruple” date. Food and drinks were amazing. Ambiance was good. Service was good, but I felt like could have been a little better as far as being happy to be there, and setting up the tone for the “personality” of the restaurant. But everyone has bad days so I wouldn’t let that affect me going back.
Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. Street noodles were awesome!
Unbelievable sushi and fun cocktails. I will definitely be back.
Good menu. Irregular service. Overpriced for food and dining experience. Happy Hour is more appropriately priced.
Ramen was delicious
Obon is the best!! Definitely try the calamari and one of their ramen dishes - YUM!
Great food , server didn’t seem happy to be there
Might be the most uncomfortable bar stools I ever sat in.
Great build out though.
Staff was average
We shared some of the plates
Waiter was excellent
Good sushi& poke bowls. Attentive staff, got our good quote quickly.
Music is a little random& low wooden seats indoors are horribly uncomfortable.
This is our favorite neighborhood spot!! Great sushi and service, we have a weekly Obon addiction!
Outstanding ambiance, food and service!
We all loved it!
Really enjoyed our meal at their new location!
Will be back soon!
Excellent food and drink. Service was also fantastic. Only issue was that nearly all tables are directly blasted by the AC vents which isn’t comfortable and cools the food rapidly.
Overall it was GREAT food! The sushi was fresh, the ramen was delicious and the calamari was OUTSTANDING! We tried just about everything on the happy hour menu - it was really priced well! Only 1 issue, whoever designed the chairs forgot to think about comfort! My butt cheeks were numb after 20 minutes in that flat, wooden stool! Yikes! I could do better decorating than that! It feels like they want us to eat and run! Get some new chairs and we'll be back! :)
First time. The food was great. So was the service. It was a little loud and only 2/3 full. Not sure I want to be there when it is full!
I liked the atmosphere in this restaurant. The food was varied for all tastes and was delicious.
Service was horrible and it was freezing cold
Yummmmmy! We had the salt and vinegar wings, sushi rolls and the ramen. Wow wow wow. The wings and ramen were delicious. We will def be back.
This place has such a great atmosphere, and a fantastic menu for sushi and ramen lovers. I was very excited to see a location open closer to my house
Great sushi, ramen, and vibe! We'll definitely be back.
I love this place! Amazing food every time. Truly one of my favorite places to go. Service is always prompt, friendly and accurate, and prices are fair. I will surely be back (I come once a month).
I wish they had cameras on the property parking lot however because another patron hit my car and drove off :(
The noise was deafening and the air conditioning was freezing cold. The back room should be avoided as sound bounces off the walls and was so noisy we could barely have a conversation.
The food was excellent and the service was great.
We’ll go back and try sitting in the bar area.
Obon Sushi opened recently, and already our family have been there 3 times making it a Very Tasty new favorite. All July they have reduced 'Happy Hour" pricing, making it a very good bargain at any hour. By the time you are reading this, you will have to order before 6:00, but we can recommend it at regular prices anyway.
Second visit...ambient temperature too cold; ac was blasting, even the man at our table froze and had to get a jacket; hostess seated party at the "wrong" table, had requested booth when i made reservation; no big deal, we just moved; music was a tad too loud. Happy Hour all day is excellent. Food was good, but not as good as a few days prior...Sunday may not be the day to come here for lunch? Recommend cauliflower. The calamari this visit were less enticing than first time when the dish was plentiful and plump serving of calamari...this time small shreds comparatively speaking.
We now have a wonderful "gem" in our McCormick Ranch neighborhood;
fantastic ambiance, service, menu items, happy hour, ideal location, awesome patio, ease of parking,
and is on the Hayden Road Scottsdale Trolley route.
Worth the drive from anyplace in Maricopa County!
Awesome for HH and dinner. Dates, business, and groups. Will go again soon.
As usual, great!
Great food, excellent service, very happy with the new Obon in MCCormick Ranch!
Great meal that all my coworkers enjoyed. No matter what you order off the menu you are going to be happy. The service is top notch and great atmosphere.
Great happy hour and the ramen is fantastic (nice balance of flavors). Excellent service!
There was a huge group party the night we visited OBON that prevented us from enjoying the experience. However since it is located so conveniently we will try again hopefully it was a one off.
Unless you don’t like ramen and don’t mind a warehouse sound level— don’t go. Most people don’t agree with me because the place was packed but check back in a month and see if the neighborhood newness has worn off.
Excessive noise level— WITH background music
Ramen was overpriced— cut the portions in half and the price by a third
Nigiri and sashimi were okay— make the portion 3 instead of 2 for the same price
Get rid of the calamari wrapped around mint leaves— no taste except for the mint
If they keep serving tasty food and drinks I’ll keep coming back...a lot!!
