Nice sample of food, good atmosphere, staff, dessert was amazing.

I took my wife out for her birthday with my family and her friends for our last night in Hawaii. We went with the $100 chef special and was given 8 courses, 4 being cold, 2 hot, 1 cold noodles (which I did not like) and 5 different desserts. 1.

Good to excellent sushi. It's Nobu after all. There are some interesting dishes not found everywhere like squid pasta. So that's good. Good selection of sake. But here's the problem. I'm in Honolulu and want to feel like that. This Nobu looks like a cafeteria. An inexpensive one at that. So go for the food but if you want a... More

A beautiful and sophisticated dining experience that will be cherished and remembered. We were a party of 3 couples and I loved the round table. The plates were all shared and most were so good we ordered more of the same.. Nice to arrive early and have a drink at the bar before hand and enjoy the ambiance..

good food, excellent customer service, great decor, but not sure if it was worth the money paid as couldn't see a lot of work that would've gone into preparing raw food. loved the mochi dessert.

Food was fresh and good. Waiters were attentive and ready to recommend the more popular choices on the menu. The beef on the menu was fantastically done, regardless of the way it was prepared. Sashimi selection was extensive and fresh. We sampled quite a few items since this is Nobu ! However, don't be too shocked by the bill, afterall... More

We had the black cod, the tempura king crab, the yellowtail jalapeno sashimi, and a few other things and it was truly a superb dining experience. One of the best meals of my life. It's pricey - and totally worth it. Highly recommend!

Room is less than inspirational but the food can't be beat. Directly across the street from our hotel the Halekulani.

While we enjoyed our meal at Nobu, we all felt that the value was not quite there. As expected portions were small, prices were high, plates were beautiful but not all wowed. We really could not see the justification for the high cost of the simpler sushi plates and rolls. The signature cod dish was outstanding. The king crab tempura... More
