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.

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.
