“Great Food, Very Expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

If you get invited here ask to sit in the main dining room, or if there are just two of you sit up at the bar. The food is just as you would expect, delicious, and the prices are again just as you would expect, but then no one comes to Nobu for a cheap meal. Everything I tried was wonderful, I can't tell you exactly what I had as everything was ordered for the table but given the chance I would definitely visit again.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Great night, food was good but not fantastic as I have enjoyed at most Nobus. I think the place was nice but need that extra "Je ne sais quoi?". It was nice but not comfortable you felt like being in a large canteen.
Food presentation couldn't be better too.

“Nice place but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The atmosphere is what makes this restaurant special. However, the food is just basically the same as you would get in almost any other Asian inspired restaurant. Our server was excellent the night worth The bill was a little steep - $100. Especially because we only ordered two things: three scallops and tempura asparagus.

“Good food but value not there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Last minute reservation and they sat us in the room facing the courtyard. It was an Empty room when they seated us. The atmosphere out there completely loses any Asian feel of the main dining room. Ordered a chef selection at $65 each. Had five courses and the were all very good the portions were small which was ok for us but may be a factor for others. Waiter was courteous but I couldn't help but feel the staff was a bit pretentious about a place that was really nothing special to us
