“Scrumptious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Business dinner and all of us were from out of town. But several fun people so we went to Nobu rather than the usual steakhouse. Appetizers to entrees were absolutely delicious. Try the family style entrees more than the usual rolls that you find anywhere. The lobster and mushroom dish or melt-in-your-mouth sizzling beef were terrific. We ordered several dishes tapas style and shared.

I had my doubts about this palce as it is so trendy but the sushi was excellent, and I was pleasently surprised there were so many things for vegetarians.

“Fabulous sushi adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Between two people we shared Nobu sashimi tuna tacos, mixed seafood tempura, black cod miso (the best dish!), the "House special" cut sushi roll, hamachi sashimi with jalapeno, salmon ("new style") sashimi, kanpachi sashimi with artichoke, and several more sushi and sashimi dishes along with a nice Onigoroshi sake and finished with kakigori (shaved ice dessert) and tofu cheese cake. Each dish was delicious and presented in a novel way (see the pictures). We very much enjoyed this meal and will return here on the next trip to San Diego.

I thought that it was going to be a regular Japanese restaurant but it was just marvelous. My wife and me had a great experience - I recommend it !

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Recommended. Nobu delivers as expected- great food, great service. Quite pricey, but worth it. A bit on the loud side.
