“Fish RULES here.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Fish Rules here,supreme. innovation is central to the experience.
We decided to enjoy a medley of entrees starting with Tasmanian ocean trout on a bed of crispy spinach and yuzu soy,seafood Harumaki with caviar and maus onion sauce. We loved the seared raw fish slices with ponzu. For the finale .... yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno...spicy with a quiet volcanic touch. Exquisite marriage of flavours in a room that is warm deco. Service is first class and the price is commensurate with it.

“Fabulous Sushi, Sashimi and Service”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Take your wallet out and enjoy! Fresh and delicious! Favorites include yellowtail jalapeño, salmon & avocado inside out, rock shrimp tempura with spicy sauce, black cod with miso and the best wood oven roasted vegetables we've ever had! Is in the Park Hotel, make a reservation. We sat at sushi bar and had great service. We eat sushi often, this is some of the very best; good wine list too. A bit pricey, but worth it.

“Expensive, but worth it.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Nobu is well known for its flood and its cost. The menu is extensive with specialties of the house as well as standard Japanese items. Everything is served as small plates for sharing. The price of the small plates is definitely not small, but the house specialties were truly special and the service was exceptional, from the group greeting of guests arriving, to wait staff helping each other out when they saw your primary waiter was busy, to the uniformly friendly, warm and helpful attitude from every single staff member, Nobu makes the guest feel special. I would return here again without hesitation

“Amazing Food, Amazing Experience”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We dined at Nobu Waikiki on our last evening in Honolulu. We knew that it would be on the expensive side, but we wanted to make a special memory as we left. What an amazing meal! We had a reservation, and as we entered, the entire sushi staff greeted us, and we were quickly seated. Our server suggested that we order different types of food and they would be served in a specific order. We had some tuna sashimi with jalopeno pepper, along with some Nobu Black Cod (which is a signature dish). Both dishes were amazing! The black cod was the most delicious fish we had both ever eaten. It is soft and buttery sweet! I also had a Wagyu Slider (delicious beef in a tofu bun). We had one other dish before finishing with dessert. Total bill, including sake for my wife and a cocktail for me came to about $185 with tip, but it was worth every penny! It truly was a memorable meal served in a memorable way. Arrigato, Chef Nobu!

“The most memorable meal I've ever had!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I think about this restaurant all the time, and can't wait for the day I revisit. The food was absolutely amazing and is easily one of the best meals and dining experiences I've had. I thought the menu rather expensive at first, but it is worth every cent for the standard of food, drinks and service. The quality of food was 5 star, the seafood so fresh and every mouthful whether it be tuna, pork belly or roast duck, melts in your mouth. The wait staff were great and gave their personal recommendations, as well as details of the ingredients and flavour combinations. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
