For months I was excited about dining at Nobu Waikiki but found the experience a bit disappointing. My disappointment was from a combination of under-performing dishes and arrogant service. Not Nobu’s fault but the restaurant was not so full that Monday night and the diners looked somewhat bored. It was like they conceded to eating at the hotel restaurant that... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Nobu Waikiki for Valentine's Day. We decided on the Omakase Tasting Menu and were very happy with our choice because everything on the menu was absolutely, mouth watering delicious. We eat out quite a bit and one thing that really stood out was the wait staff at Nobu Waikiki. They... More

Our five course( seafood and beef) dinner was very delicious. The food quality and flavor was superb. The overall ambiance is casual contemporary. Our servers were very helpful in suggesting the various courses. We enjoyed this restaurant very much and it is a place we will always visit when in Honolulu. It was a very short walk from our hotel,... More

This Japanese restaurant is amazing! Second to Marimoto but still fabulous! We tried a number of hot and cold dishes like the sea bass cooked in hot stone, the ahi poke sashimi, the eggplant miso, the mushroom salad they were all amazing! Will definitely be back.

I took my girlfriend to Nobu for her birthday dinner. We both found it to be a really nice restaurant. Our waiter was James, he knew everything about the menu, answered all of my questions, and made great recommendations. We ordered tons of food. Nobu may be known for it's seafood, but the steak we had there was one of... More

Every trip to Hawaii also means a trip to Nobu Waikiki. We absolutely love this place. From the ambience to the food, everything just makes for a great nights dining. However on our latest visit we were very disappointed with our server. Although knowledgable about the menu, it was as if he was reading from a script. Over the course... More

My first night in Hawaii, my friends took me here... now I can never enjoy another sushi place again! We had the yellowtail, whitefish, and salmon sashimi, blackened cod, and some rolls... everything was a perfect flavour combination and presented beautifully! You pay a pretty penny for it but in my humble opinion is is worth it! I have never... More

We visit Nobu once a month and have never been disappointed - the Yellowish Tuna / Cod / Tempura are all excellent and so is the Sushi Roll. Service has always been very good - knowledge associates that make you feel welcome. Nice selection of Japanese Beer's - they did run out of Sapporo beer, but Kirin is also not... More
