I arrived at the restaurant just a few minutes before 10, but the place remained busy throughout my stay. Friendly staff, and fantastic sushi. I went with a very traditional yellowtail roll, with salmon and scallop nigiri. Wonderful, flavorful, and tender all around. The sake was absolutely perfect complement to the roll and especially the pickled ginger. I also very much appreciated the rocks provided at each place setting for a bit of meditation and reminders of wabi sabi in the midst of a very flashy and trendy tourist area.

If you are looking forward to having a Japanese style of dining, then the Nobu is definitely not the one. Well, for the locals in San Diego, it is however good enough. Sushi and sashimi are tasty and fresh, the way of drinking Sake in a wine glass is very imaginary...so, this is well westernized Japanese restaurant if you know what I mean...

Food presentation was great, food tasted very good...just one problem, it's way over priced!
If price is not an issue go there or find another place to eat. After paying a lot of money, you still leave hungry! Appetizer are priced from $20-$30 for very small portions.

If you know anything about sushi you'll hate this food. Poorly made, tiny bits of fish and way over priced.
