Great view - beautiful people, very good food. Is it worth the hefty price tag? Well, its a place you go to if you dont care about money you spend on food. And if that is the case, its great! Desert was fabulous too. Every dish is delicious.

We were only staying a couple of nights in Malibu before flying home after a West Coast roadtrip so weren't venturing far from our hotel and we're delighted to find Nobu on the doorstep. The restaurant is in a great setting, the atmosphere is lively, the drinks from the bar are delicious and inventive and the food was fantastic! The... More

I had dinner and drinks at this great restaurant several times as it offer the best ocean views in my opinion and has a contemporary architecture. The food is great, though not exceptional. What bothered me every time is how little effort the staff makes to accommodate guests.

The ambiance of the restaurant is very relaxing with both indoor and outdoor space. I don't eat any type of seafood but, of course, the restaurant had several other options, which were delicious. Parking is valet and extremely efficient. The wine list includes something for any wine lover.

Came here upon a friend's recommendation. It's so close to the water that you can hear the waves as they crash we ordered quite a lot of food this visit, we had mini tacos, yellow tail jalapeño, some marinated white fish, wagyu beef and black cod. We also had some of the local specials which were quite good, so ask... More

Being a resident in NYC, I'd have to say this Nobu location is mindblowing. Eating right on the Pacific Ocean is a treat and that's how it should be viewed imo. This is based on a lunch experience last summer so please be sure to wear SPF if you are seated on the patio. I came back with a bad... More

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...
