Beautiful outdoor setting on the Malibu shore, lovely crashing waves to drink and eat by....nice patio to relax, drink and wait for your table to be ready...Probably better to be a celebrity in order to get seated faster...

Always hard to get a table - well deserved, amazing place. Much better than the one in Hollywood I must say

Spent a lazy and wonderful Saturday afternoon here a while back. We had a table in the sun up against the water and it was a highlight of our trip to California. As Londoners we were shocked at what we got for the price. An equivalent meal at home would cost three times what we paid. Wonderful experience!!

This is my favourite Nobu - a must stop when I'm in LA. The view is simply stunning...if you can't fit in lunch or dinner - stop by for a cocktail and enjoy the view & sound of the ocean. You know what to expect here...it's Nobu. Delicious sushi & fun vibe - I always order the rock shrimp, the... More

Beautiful location, beautiful food. Make sure you try the black cod. We also really enjoyed the soft shell crab sushi. Good wine selection by the glass and by the bottle. Pricey but worth it for the food and the location.

Everything looks so good, it is hard to make a decision! This is why our party of four racked up close to $800 for our lunch! The wait staff was fantastic and very helpful. There is something there for every taste. I'm not over the top about fish, but I loved everything that I ate. The setting is perfection! You... More

Good, innovative sushi and other dishes, served by friendly, helpful wait staff. We tried a number of their signature sushi dishes. All were delicious. You'll spend a fortunate eating here, but once in a while, it's worth it. The restaurant sits on the beach in Malibu. You won't find a more beautiful setting.

Nobu Malibu is just as good as the ones in London and New York. The setting is perfect, right by the Pacific Ocean. The staff is friendly and the service flawless. Try the black cod and the eggplant with miso sauce! If you are lucky you'll see a bunch of famous people ;)

We went for lunch, our first visit. It was much calmer than we expect dinner would be and we didn't miss the "scene". We had the Chef's signature menu. We hadn't been before and it was birthday lunch so we delivered ourselves into the chef's hands and we didn't regret it. There were 7 courses, counting desert and every single... More

We work all over the US but mainly in NY, CT, Bozeman and LA. We eat sushi in all those places. Even in Bozeman where Dave's never ever lets us down. But this place is a whole other story. We were 6. Our waiter went through the Nobu menu very clearly. He then suggested that we let him order which... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
