Nobu Malibu is one of our favorite restaurants ever. We have traveled all over the world and this is our spot. The location is one of the best. The food is perfection. The service is mostly good. Atmosphere is great. But good much getting a reservation :)

Tried booking a table for sunday lunch for my family by email, Email was not responded to (it was replied to I believe about 2 days later in fact) so called by phone on sunday morning at 10:10am (as only open to take reservations as from 10:00am). A very nice lady answered and confirmed our reservation for that afternoon (table... More

Truly the best location for a restaurant in Malibu. They worked on this facility for YEARS. The results are stunning. Everything is first class so the ambiance can't be beat. And the people watching is also fabulous! Everyone who is any one visits this world class venue. Not a sushi/sashimi fan? We aren't either, but the experience is not to... More

I'm a local and I get tired of all the Nobu attitude. If you are tired of hearing "We don't have any open tables between 7:00 and 10:00 for the next 6 months" (and when they do it's a crappy table in the back because they save the good tables for celebrities and regulars) go to SUGARFISH is Calabasas! They... More

Because finding a place in this amazing restaurant is really tough. An this is for many reasons : it is located on Malibu beach with a stunning view on the bay, sunset must be something here, too bad our reservation was later. Indoor is nice, but the terrace is fantastic with a view on the beach. The crowd is very... More

We were vacationing in LA and have always wanted to try Nobu. It was better than we expected! Mostly because our server, Eric was so knowledgable and friendly. The food was amazing too, but I really do believe that he made our experience better! Thanks

Ordered mostly main dishes: cod and beef. They were amazing and the portions surprisingly decent. I was expecting tiny amounts. The sushi rolls where good. A little small but good. There was a signature appetizer pushed on us aggressively - sliced yellowtail with jalapeños. There were 5 paper thin slivers of fish with a pepper on top. No need to... More

This trip to Nobu was a bit weak. We arrived for lunch and got the table we love. The waiter was chatty and slow. My sushi came out wrong and took 20 minutes to correct. As a later course I wanted the sliders but they ran out by that time. Towards the end of the allotted 2 hour table time... More

what a wonderful place. The location is amazing. Literally on the beach in Malibu. I came here for my graduation and it was one of the best restaurant experience in my life. Food was phenomenal. Great wine selection. It is not cheap by any mean, but worth the money. Service could have been a little better, the waiters did not... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
