The waitress was difficult to understand and I would have expected their attire to be more formal.

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.

Enjoyed the food and atmosphere greatly. It did take some time to get food to our table of 9 - the meal was a total of 3.5 hours, which felt quite long.

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.

Food was incredible. Service was a bit slow. Had to ask 4 people for water but when I ordered a cocktail, it came immediately. Guess I just needed to order the right thing!

I’ve eaten at Nobu in other cities and had great expectations. So this was highly disappointing. Food took ridiculously long to get and menu not the same. I go to Nobu/Matsuhisa because of menu options and quality of food/service. Something amiss at this one.

Nobu is always just another level. I have been to several around the country and the service and food never disappoints. I had the featured cocktail which was a bourbon based drink and it was ridiculously amazing. I really enjoy this place as a once in a while splurge and being in DC with my daughter looking at colleges seemed like a good excuse. Great time and look forward to the next time.

It was a good experience. Good food. Service was a little bit slow due high occupancy.
