My wife and I have been to many Nobu locations and the food is always outstanding! Nobu Malibu has that and more. The menu is similar with a few twists. You can't go wrong with anything you order. Its all the freshest available. I enjoyed the red snapper sashimi with Onions and the Albacore prepared the same way. The soft... More

My boyfriend took me here for a special date night. What a beautiful locations/restaurant! We arrived early, because we left early to pre-plan for that famous LA traffic but the trip up Highway 1 wasn't so bad so we got there early. We sat at the bar and got a couple drinks. These drinks are gorgeous and so good...but they're... More

This Nobu has very nice decor, glass and teak wood, and has a good vibe on the beach. The food-sushi- is fabulous and although pricey it is excellent quality and you won't be disappointed.

O M G! Beautiful restaurant and we had an amazing table with view of the Pacific Ocean - waves crashing in front of us. Totally impressed with the staff, really excellent service. The vibe is casual chic, staff is easy going, friendly and nicely attentive. Ordered the "premium" OMAKASE which is the expensive lunch option, but what a fantastic experience.... More

Nobu is definitely a popular restaurant and always packed. It's a place where celebrities hang out and spend lots of money. The food is fresh, but portions are minuscule and dishes look more like an art-work than food. It's mainly sushi and they are good at it, but the service is dismal unless you are famous. Definitely a place to... More

Yes, this is prime sushi. And, there were five of us, so putting together our lengthy order was a challenge. But, we waited almost 45 minutes for our sushi. Fortunately we ordered a carpaccio and a salad to keep us interested until our order arrived, and, yes, the restaurant was crowded, but, that is a long time to wait! The... More

The food and the service are exemplary, the interior is beautifully appointed, elegant Zen, perfect. It does not have that "frenzied" feel that is so popular now. The patio is the place to be with the perfect view of the ocean. Expensive, yes. The seafood has the perfect hint of the sea and is so elegantly presented. We started with... More

We ate Lunch here on our Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty. We spotted Nobu whilst driving through Malibu. We didn't have a reservation but were desperate to eat here. Front desk staff were kind and helpful and directed us to the bar where we waited for a table. Five minutes later our table was ready!... More

There are many Nobu restaurants and all have excellent food but when you add the incredible location, on the water, nothing beats the view. it is VERY difficult to not only get a reservation but to get one outside, which is a must! Sitting inside could be any of the Nobu restaurants and any other top sushi spot but sitting... More

We have been to nobu Malibu and NYC many times and have always enjoyed it. The Malibu location is by far my favorite! It definitely has the fine dining prices but worth it when enjoying such fresh and great food. There are always high profile people that waitrons tend to overly take care of, but with that said we have... More
