This resaurant has everything I love, ahi bluefin tuna, sushi, sashimi, and brussell sprouts! The service was the best, the manager is cute, We loved the experience of Pabu.
We drink wine and the wine offerings are good. If you love sushi and Japanese food then this is the place for you, but if you want steak then you wont be as happy. I cant wait to go back.

Everything was flavored and cooked to perfection! The wings are a perfect asian-ginger seasoned barely breaded and amazing. The handrolls-I had scallops and the shrimp tempura-phemonal. Sit at the bar and try all of the drinks!!

The Sake Bomb and Oyster Shooters are great!

If you are in Baltimore and would like to give a break on meat and try something different then I definitely recommend the Japanese restaurant "Pabu". It is located right in front of Marriott Water Front. Try to locate Mr. Reese as your waiter and trust his taste 200%. Below is the list of what you will have tonight.

- sushi & sashimi: no matter which ones you choose but don't over do and don't forget the ones with shrimp.

"happy spoon" oyster, uni, ikura, ponzu crème fraîche"

"savory egg custard, prawn, scallop, shiitake, ikura, mitsuba"

"Maryland crab okonomiyaki, fried egg, pork belly, mustard mayo"

"berkshire pork 'country' ribs, red chili glaze"

"chirashi, assortment of fresh raw fish, ikura, sushi rice"

"tonkatsu, crispy berkshire pork loin, shaved green cabbage, bulldog sauce"

Bonne petite.

Had a very good meal at Pabu last month, not the best we've ever had but very good.
Sushi was well done, lots of creative dishes to choose from, loved perusing the menu.

Found the actual taste of the food didn't quite live up to expectations; it was good, but nothing really blew me away or was strongly memorable.

Best decision we made was to eat on the small patio. Even with some construction on the walkway outside the hotel, the views over the harbor were great at night and it was much quieter than inside.

We consider ourselves somewhat of sushi experts, living in the NYC metro, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of Pabu's sushi. Everything was fresh, fresh, fresh and melted in your mouth. The sashimi was of particular note. The management outdid themselves, we were guests at The Four Seasons Hotel, too and they made us feel like V.I.P's sending over several complimentary items from the chef. Our waiter was very helpful; we loved all her recommendations. The ambiance is fun, loud (but not too) with lots of energy. We didn't want to leave and will definately add this to the top of our list of Baltimore hot spots!
