Celebrating a birthday at Nobu is such an amazing experience. The servers and staff treat you with great respect and truly care for everyone's needs. The view outside while you wait is marvelous and being in Malibu is just killer itself. You may have to bypass and shake off a rude host once in a while but it's worth it.... More

What a disappointment. After hearing raves about the food and decor, we decided to venture to Malibu to see Nobu's tony LA beachside version. It turned out to be a hectic, loud, and uneven experience. The room is too full and loud, which totally ruins the beautiful sea view and obvious attempts at a zen aesthetic. Also, it is full...

I would highly recommend making a reservation, try to be seated along the edge of the patio. We did not have a reservation but were able to sit in the bar area looking out at the beautiful view. Cocktails were amazing and all of the sushi was prepared fresh and taste

We were at Nobu for dinner and also for lunch. Daytime it is just fantastic to ist outside and enjoy the beautiful view right at the Pacific. The Interieur is so lovely, very warm and open. We had the delicous yellowtail with jalapenos (gotta try this) and cut Sushirolls. The food is just great! Little pricy but worth it!

Nobu Malibu's decor is causal smart with a comfortable ambiance. The view of course is breathtaking beautiful! The food was very good and the service was friendly and very professional. A great restaurant to celebrate any special occasion.

We called a month to the day in advance as required to make our reservations for dinner two nights in a row. We were expecting paparazzi, celebrities, but saw neither. The restaurant is lovely, very upscale, beautiful people but definitely doesn't feel warm and friendly. The patio was closed the nights we were there due to weather. Nothing special at... More

I have been tonigth trying to celebrate my wife's birthday. Already know Nobu NyC and London. One month ago, I phoned from Spain to ask for a candle and a birthday detail for my wife. Location is a must. In front of the sea, nice decorated. Food became like a burguer frachise. No flavors, not quality, not news, but more... More

So Malibu trendy with all beautiful people but you need a good bank account to eat here. If you have one then expect tremendous flavors great service and a great experience that will stay with you. Reservations critical and attitude part of the place. Quality place

What a great view of the Pacific Ocean. We enjoyed a late lunch (around 2pm) and were able to walk right in and get a table, no reservation needed. The food was amazing. Because we arrived a bit late for lunch we did feel a little rushed. They don't serve food between 3pm and 5pm (ish), so it did seem... More

If you're a Nobu fan, you have to try Nobu in Malibu. The food selection was excellent with some dishes only speciliased for the restaurant, and the view and setting to dine outside is absolutely gorgeous! My favourite restaurant in LA, even though you need to drive out to Malibu for it. I didn't pre-book, but turned up at 12pm... More
