Happy Hour – Check out my full review on buenprovechola.blogspot
Best food in town – Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived
Luv this place--sit at the Sushi Bar! – Great staff--always has great reccomendations of what fish to try, etc. Went there with my friend from out of town last week and have been before and both times had a great dining experience!
Delish! – The fresh scallop with key lime is ridiculously good...and so is pretty much everything else. The kobe beef tacos are a MUST and the flourless chocolate cake is AMAZING!
Best. Restaurant. Ever. – I try to eat at Nobu at least once a month. Whatever the bill ends up being, it's always, always worth it. The service is just incredible. The waitstaff always remembers me and they are as friendly as can be. Probably helps that they are all actors. But seriously, they couldn't be better, I always expect awesome service and they never disappoint.
The food is top notch. It's amazing, I have never had a single bite of food there that I didn't love. Try the King Crab Tempura and you will fall in love with it. The yellowtail jalapeno sashimi is also a staple. I really like the spicy tuna with crispy rice, the rock shrimp tempura, the seared tuna belly, it all rocks.
It wouldn't be a night of sushi without some sake too.
I don't know why anyone would not be pleased with a night out at Nobu. It's full of industry players, celebs, and beautiful people. The environment inspires success. Like I said, price shouldn't even be an issue. Get the damn bill, pay a generous amount to the awesome waitstaff and hurry back because Nobu is awesome.
Spotted Vanessa Summers there! – I was recently at Nobu's last Thursday and I saw Vanessa Summers of the Online Marketing Academy eating a spring roll. How cool, I have been to her events in the pass and loved them. Of course I ordered the spring roll and it was yummy.
Over-salted, over-sauced, and under-whelming. – Why did I even come here? My sister wanted to try Nobu for her birthday. Big mistake. The careless waitstaff brought her SOMEONE ELSE'S birthday dessert. The dish had written in chocolate on it "Happy 30th Birthday Olivia". My sister is Annie and she was turning 26, so you know this is a major screw up. The waiter apologized but didn't offer to comp anything. In fact, he left the offending plate under the dessert. Faux pas? REMOVE THE WRONG PLATE, DUMBASS. They left the dessert and my sister stared at some other woman's name and the wrong birthday age through dessert.
So if you care to know how bad the dishes were, let me give you a run down. The highlight of the night was the shishito peppers and bottled Voss sparkling water. Serious.
The oysters were over-sauced, the toro tartar was the size of a dead fat goldfish (and looked like it) and mediocre -- and $32. The spiny lobster came in three formations: tempura, and two sashimi variations. Artful, but over-saturated with sauce so you could hardly taste the lobster. Yellowtail japaneno was a yawn. The octopus carpaccio was mediocre, cut way too thick, and fell apart with chopsticks (uh.. I've never seen fresh octopus do this). The dessert was a botched birthday debaucle, and I basically spent $359 to be embarrassed for Nobu's failures. If they had any class, they'd bend over backward to remedy the birthday debaucle. But no, I received the bill in full. No free champagne for the birthday girl, just pithy apologies from the ignorant wait staff.
Next time I'm in Los Angeles I'm checking the Michelin guide! Nobu is too much money for not much quality. I get better fish at authentic Japanese hole-in-the-wall restaursnts in Los Angeles.
fun – always consistant....amazing food, great service and people always look gorgeous.
it's aite – it's a really really aite place to eats sushis. i hate sushi except for blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
