    Food is second fiddle to nightclub vibes. Appetizers were unremarkable. Sushi was good but aggressively expensive. $400 for dinner for 2 with one drink each and both still a little hungry.

    from the valet to the hosts to the servers to the bussers, everyone was extraordinary and gave my wife and I a great night out. oh also, definitely try the yellowtail and salmon sashimi and nigiri cold and the black cod hot if you're wondering where to start.

    The food and service were absolutely exceptional! But for the pricetag that comes along with it, I expected the ambiance to be of a higher standard. The decir is a bit inauthentic feeling because looking too closely you notice the neglect and very dated decor choices. The seats are especially dated and old, with cracks and tears visible in our booth and when looking around and nearby seats. It’s a nitpick complaint at most places, but for such an expensive meal, you’re paying for all of your surroundings to match the food and service level and looking around brought the value of the experience down a bit.

    Yesterday, my sibling and friend from New Jersey and I went to NOBU for the first time. We didn't know the menu well. The sushi combo recommended by the waiter for us was too small. And it was expensive. I understood that NOBU is originally an expensive place, but the amount was too, too small. ... Sushi combo, recommended fish dish (the size of a small woman's palm) 3 salmon, and 3 martinis totaled $499 + 17% tip... I felt terrible. The three of us had less food than the average person... I'm so hungry... Is it supposed to be like that?????.....=(

    Food was amazing. We let the waiter pick our dishes. Most were outstanding, a couple were really good but we wouldn’t order again. As amazing as the food was, it was overpriced. With that being said, you also pay for the experience and for the name. Happy I went once, would pick my own dishes the next time now that I have tried a few things!

    We did the omakase and while the regular one was very good, the vegan one was extremely underwhelming. The steamed veggies on top of rice sushi style was completely flavorless and when we finally got tofu, it came without seasoning and just in a broth and not a sauce that would actually stick to the tofu. For $225 it was definitely not worth it.

    We had reservations and still had to wait for a while . After finally sitting down , a good 15 mins passed before we were acknowledged. After finally ordering drinks we waited again a good 20-25 mins just to put our food order in. Once we asked for what we wanted , we also asked about the steak and the pricing . All the waitress said was it depends on on the oz. We proceeded to order an 8oz, waitress took our order but never let us know the price until the bill got there. $300 for an 8 pc cut up thin slice steak. We had no choice but to pay it . But it would’ve been nice if the waiter had let us know since it was our first time there . Between the wait and the lack of attention and the not informing customers of the price , I’m good

    Nobu always has amazing food. Service seemed a little slow as we had longer waits in between orders than expected, especially seeing others getting their food more timely. Beautiful atmosphere though and again amazing food.

    First time at Nobu and it didnt really live up to all the hype. Definitely some delicious plates but nothing spectacular. Service was really slow. The interior design of the restaurant could really use a make over. I was expecting to walk into a beautiful restaurant but it was underwhelming. For the price we paid ($1k+) I expected WAY more.

    I can't emphasize enough how disappointed we were with our dining experience here. Finding the entrance was a challenge due to the poorly marked alley door. The interior felt outdated, the hostess appeared indifferent, and our cramped, dimly lit table added to the lackluster ambiance. Despite a friendly waiter, the inability to articulate the specials left us unimpressed. The overall atmosphere, coupled with the worn-out surroundings, made spending over 300 dollars unappealing. In comparison to Nobu Malibu, this establishment falls short and urgently needs a complete overhaul, from interior design to lighting. While the food was passable, the subpar ambiance, dated space, and unclean facilities detracted from any culinary enjoyment. I won't be returning and will caution others against choosing this venue.

    I have dined at Nobu plenty of times between LA, Malibu & NYC. This was my second time dining at the LA location. The first time we were a bit disappointed with the service but figured maybe it was an off night. Last night we had the same exact server as we did prior, who barely paid any attention to us. The service was so bad, we didn’t receive half of what we ordered, we were being rushed, and just felt so weird being there. will never be returning to this location, it’s honestly a joke. you can find way better quality food and service elsewhere.

    there is never a bad meal or bad service or bad experience at Nobu. It is always an exemplary (and delicious) dining experience. Its expensive. But then again, it is always an exemplary and delicious dining experience. There's not such thing as a free lunch (or dinner). There's a price for exemplary.

    First time at Nobu and very happy. We actually really enjoyed the small shared plate format, affording lots of opportunity to try different things. Josh, our waiter, was extremely helpful, and basically orchestrated our meal. Sure, it’s expensive, but not obnoxiously so, and the atmosphere is casual. Very impressed and will definitely be back.

    Not impressed. My granddaughter , 17, was so excited to try the Nobu experience she has heard so much about. The food was nothing spectacular. The edamame was warm not hot and noting to write home about. The tacos were good. the chicken teriyaki was small and not as good as Cheesecake Factory with 3 scrawny overdone asparagus spears . the waitress put her hand in front of me to put down the bento box and wreaked of cigarette smoke …it lingered awhile at our table …not very classy or professional in my mind. So, I did not experience anything extraordinary at Nobu L.A. Wish I had
