As usual, beautiful presentation. We all chose the omakase and were not disappointed. The timing of the service was perfect, as we were neither rushed nor made to wait very long for the next course.

I came on a Sunday afternoon and as usual there was excellent service, and the food was delicious. I dined inside and the tables were spaced more than 6 ft apart. I did the chefs tasting for 2 and was very pleased with all the dishes. Highly recommend Nobu if you have the time and money.

You have to know going in that it’s going to be a completely wonderful dining experience. Every dish coming to the table is an amazing surprise. When you let the server ( in our case it was Zoie) every dish is a pleasant surprise.

Excellent sushi, we had the Omakase for 2, disappointed in ending with chix, while it tasted great, I would have preferred one more seafood dish, as the other 6 tastings were excellent. assorted sushi and yellowtail were our favorites. Decor was less than stellar especially at a high end restaurant. was looking forward to being wow'd. Good service. Excellent passion fruit ice cream.

Nobu never disappoints. The food always tastes fresh and the service is 10/10. Our waitress was very personable and gave recommendations. My favorites to order here are the Rock Shrimp, Jalapeno Yellowtail, & Tuna Tacos. It's a great restaurant for sharing with a good ambience.

I haven't been to Nobu in over a decade since leaving Manhattan. It still doesn't disappoint, even in DC. We let the chef select our food courses...……….Yum! At the price point, this is a great place to celebrate special occasions.

Took my wife for her first Nobu experience while vacationing in DC. We both had the Chef’s Tasting Menu, she did the wine pairing an I did the Sake pairing. Everything was delicious and the waitress was kind and took time to explain everything very well. I’d highly recommend for a special occasion. Only drawback is the $$. Our dinner & drinks for 2 topped $500 with tip, so it’s not everyday dining (the tasting menu that it). They looked to have a good happy hour menu.

Nobu serves terrific, wonderful quality food but you pay for the brand. . If you’re into chic fusion and don’t care about price it’s a great time. I do have a serious issue with the Sake prices. If a rule of thumb for restaurant wine is 100% markup, you’ll find Nobu sake prices are double even that. Or more.

Our server cut out early, never handed off to another server so we were left hanging. Totally unprofessional for Nobu, the floor staff was aggressive cleaning up or table, we still had 5 pieces of sushi and the women came over and started removing our food, happened twice. She was pushing us out at 9pm and the restaurant still had 6 tables full. The way she reacted was awful, totally snarky and rude.
