Success! Thanks for posting your review of Nobu Malibu. You’ve done the world some good today.

Sushi or Kobe?

I don't know what I like more here!!\r Both are pretty good.\r \r Service could be faster/better\r \r It's a hit and miss, sometimes you get the best waiter, others you get the wanna be actress who keeps staring at whatever actor is there sitting at the next table and getting every order wrong.\r \r If all the waiters and waitresses in LA could act like they LOVE their jobs, well, then I guess they would be go... view more

Still has the arrogance without the Great Food

6-10 review - I have been coming to Nobu in Malibu since 2001 - Always greeted by the same or similar head maitre de with the attitude of ""its not the tip you give me it's who you know"" [she actually said that] - What once used to be a dinner that rivaled the food served on Mt. Olympus, Nobu Malibu has gone steadily downhill over the past decade relying on name and location and celebrity prestige - Having brought ... view more

Amazing Birthday Dinner

I can totally understand why people go there and have an average experience. Their regular sushi looked totally run-of-the-mill. We sat at the bar (which looked like it seats about 15 people total, though we were on the end with another couple), and I asked for omakase. The chef said that there are three standard levels of omakase; 99, 150, and 200. He could tell I wasn't digging the whole pre-fab idea so he said ""I... view more

If you're a sushi novice, pick somewhere else to dine like Katsu-ya or some other Hollywood smash and grab fish place. But if you're into wild delicious flavors, high-quality product, and attentive service try Nobu Malibu. Yaman, our server, was so funny and truly made our experience unique and fun. Even people who weren't our waiters were helping us out explaining all of the dishes and getting us our food. They ... view more

My favorite

It's frustrating to read the reviews on here with people comparing Nobu to other sushi restaurants, because the experience is not meant to be like other sushi restaurants. If you are looking for a standard sushi dinner, don't go here because you will miss out on the whole point and feel like the restaurant did not live up to your expectations. If you want to enjoy a meal at Nobu, I recommend the following: 1. sit at ... view more

Consistently OVER RATED: Lousy Decor, Lousy Serivce, Lousy Food - year after year VISIT after VISIT!

You know i'm a local here in Malibu and every so often I have to remind myself of why I dont bother going here. \r \r Service? Really quite lousy.\r \r Food? Definitely lousy.\r \r Decor? A joke.\r \r You have to wonder why this thing is even on the map. Honestly I cant figure out why this place is such a hot spot because the food is lousy, the decor is non-existent, and the waiters are amateur. Compa... view more

What's the Hype?

I love sushi. However, at Nobu's, the servings are small and overpriced. Yes, it is fresh and there are different tastes but if you are celebrity struck, then this is the restaurant to go to see and be seen. You are paying for a celebrity hangout, basically, because I was disappointed with the sushi. There are much better sushi restaurants than this one. The waitstaff were attentive, except for two. One seemed ... view more

Our family loves sushi & have frequented many establishments for many years throughout the world, so we decide to take our daughter in law there for her birthday--there were six of us. This was our first time to Nobu. I had heard it was pricey, but good, AND IT WAS!!! Best to order in stages and eat family style--first cold dishes, soup, hot dishes, then sashimi/sushi, dessert. Black cod w/miso, yellow tail w/ ja... view more

Great Sushi, but bring your Platinum card...

I've been to all of the incarnations of Nobu in Malibu over the years. Delicious, fresh and deceivingly complex rolls make this a Japanese restaurant you don't want to miss.\r A definite standout in the small collection of Malibu eateries.
