First - don't go to Nobu if you are worried about price. For me, this is a restaurant to surrender to excellence and you aren't worried about cost. Cocktails were perfect. The food is tapas style with different dishes served one after another. We went...More

I've always heard Nobu is the best place to go get sushi. Well they were right. We ordered the rock shrimp and tempura shrimp roll. So delicious that it melted in our mouths. Would highly recommend. Little pricey, but well worth it.
