I've been to most Nobu restaurants around the United States, but it has been several years since I've been to one. Not sure what I expected this time but fear that I have outgrown Nobu. As always, the food was great and the service was good. No problems across the board. But it is really expensive and very loud -... More

Had an amazing business dinner here. The food presentation was excellent and the flavors were varied and wonderful. Loved the heart of Palm salad with lobster.

We have been to this Nobu several times, and everytime is better than the last. The service from from to back was great, the waiters and waitresses were wonderful. Food and menu was out of this world. The quality of the food, and the incredible flavors were perfect. We love it there, and will be back!

Having eaten sushi all over the world, on average 2-3 per week, I feel somewhat qualified to consider myself close to an expert. The quality of fish being served at Nobu San Diego stands head and shoulders above any other offering in North America (including Morimoto restaurants, etc.). While you can easily expect to spend well over $100 per person... More

Hyperventilating menu....I needed a fan to calm me down. I just LOVE clean, fresh seafood and this place was made for me. Enjoy the chic, quiet and dark ambience - (don't forget to turn on your iphone flashlight) and the small shared plates - I couldn't stop ordering -- then my husband had to put on the brakes.

The happy hour menu is great. Had one of almost everything. The regular menu, miso black cod is to die for. One of my favorite places all over the country.
