“Fabulous meal in a great setting”

Enjoyed a wonderful meal in a terrific setting. Price was fair for the quality of the food, location and service. Service was outstanding and the food was very, very good. Would definately go again!

“good food but inattentive service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Although the food was great, service was inattentive. I recommend going here only when it is more quiet. Probably great when no convention is going on.

Amazing food,fantastic service but be prepared to spend a bit more than expected and you will be very satisfied. Try the blue fin toro tartare and the black cod...yummy.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday night in November. The place was buzzing. The food did not disappoint. From the octopus carpaccio to tuna and salmon sushi to the grilled lobster everything was superb. Wonderfully prepared and full of interesting flavours. There is an excellent wine list and even the desserts were a delight. I would love to go back again.

“Sushi with TLC !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

This place is not part of the NOBU franchise from Chef Matsuhisa. I guess it just happened to be the owner's name as Nobu is a common name in Japan. The food was very fresh and the prices just right. The lady who served us was so nice and even at the end of the meal, she gave a gift to my kid, a $1 bill made in the shape of a phoenix bird for luck on his baseball game. TLC + fresh and delicious meal. Just awesome !!
