It was my first time at the famous Nobu. Had to make a reservation 2 weeks in advance for a weekday. Skip the $10 valet, there was enough parking on the street. The dim lighting and wood panelling makes for a good ambience but noticed the table was frayed at one edge. For first timers there’s two ways to go - a $200 tasting menu (Omakase) or tell the well-trained waiter your tastes and preferences and he’ll recommend a course of dishes. Our waiter was patient and serviced with a smile, which I always appreciate. There’s two lists - “classic” items which you’ll find at every Nobu and dishes tailored to the locale called “now”. We had Nobu staples - the Yellowtail Jalapeño (6 thin slivers of fish in yuzu soy sauce and topped with a slice of jalapeño on top) which was tangy and buttery smooth with a moderate kick; the Miso Cod (great silky texture with a sharp but sweet sauce); Salmon Yuzu Karashi Su Miso (which was six small slices of fish in a tart sauce); and the Golden Eye Snapper nigiri (which I learnt from a Vox interview with Nobu is his favourite). For dessert a bread pudding - bites of toasted bread with thyme with strawberries and milk. Spent an hour and a half there. The above won’t fill two of you but will leave you satisfied that you tried Nobu and cost you about $150. I‘m glad I went and enjoyed the food, but with the price point I don’t think I’ll go back very frequently.

My husband and I had an amazing experience at Nobu tonight. Every single employee we had the pleasure of interacting with was so welcoming and friendly. Our server, Beatrice, was amazing and was able to answer any questions we had. The food was incredible. There was not a single item we were disappointed with. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

My mom had been wanting to visit this place for a long time so it has been officially scratched off the list of “places to try”. For me this was a 1 and done, I never have to come back again. The food is just OK especially for the prices. I didn’t get to picture everything we tried, but the biggest hit are the panko shallots. Pictured are the mini tacos; we had the sea bass. For $8 per taco these were extremely mediocre.

Nobu is a good restaurant with good tasting food. Service is fantastic and the staff can choose your meal from start to finish for you depending on tastes, price point, and what you want to try. The menu is big and I really recommend leaving the choices up to the pros. There are a few key dishes that are must tries and the sushi and sashimi is delicious. Salmon tartare with caviare, was one of my favorite dishes. Price point is about $200 and up per person with drinks.

You’re going to Nobu, so the price is expected to be high and quality should also be high.

The waiters are very snobby. He kept on bragging about how lucky we were that they gave us our food before a large table in front of us and that we didn’t wait long. That shouldn’t be something that he brags about, it should be expected that you shouldn’t have to wait 45 min to get your food.

Sushi is not that good for the price.
Hot and cold dishes are good but very overpriced.

If you have reservations, be prepared to wait 30 min anyway.

Delicious food / boring ambiance. Went on a Thursday to try Nobu for the first time. The food and drinks were delicious. We had a great waiter who recommended many things which were perfect. The sake was delicious and smooth and the caviar tacos were unique and definitely worth trying. Only disappointing thing was we sat outside and the vibe was quiet and boring. Other than that very pleased! Parking is also pretty easier to find on the street so I’d try that before sending money on valet.

It is the first Nobu restaurant set up by their chef in Los Angeles. We booked seats one month in advance to have this refined dining experience on Friday night. The valet outside is $10, and there are also abundant street parking choices.
The service was extraordinary, they take precautions for the pandemic in every detail and gave us not only a sense of comfort but also security. They gave very patient advice on the dishes' choice. They know that it was our first time here, so they let us take orders one by one, to see if we like what they serve. The “premium omakase” on the menu is $200 per person and it was perfect for a date. While we this time chose to order by plates. We highly recommend their bluefin tuna, it was very fresh and flavorful!
Something we recommend most is the BREAD PUDDING, it was made of hot croissant bread pudding in cast iron with strawberries and milk gelato. We initially were not decided to try the dessert after the sushis, while we were fortunate that we did! And it didn’t let us down, with the ice cream on the top and hot croissant on the bottom, every bite was joyful.

In keeping with its name and fame it was a gastronomical experience on our first visit to Nobu last night. Each drink and dish exceptional in flavor and presentation in its own right. Hard to pick a favorite from all that we had. Whether it was the Salmon Tartare with Caviar , their signature dish black cod with miso, the Arctic Char with Chimichurri, the Nori Kaba Ribeye or the sashimi.....everything was excellent.But if I really had to choose one it would be the Salmon Tartare with Caviar. One has to try it to know it.
The wait and serve staff were excellent as well- courteous, informative and helpful.
The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the table we were seated at,a corner table on the back patio....when you are paying the kind of money you do at such restaurants you do want a great ambience. We weren't even asked inside or outside.
