You’ll have to make a reservation 30 days in advance to get a table as it’s extremely popular. Outside area is amazing. Tables inside are noisy and the music is way too loud so it’s hard to have a conversation. The food is amazing, especially...More

We have tried many Japanese restaurants with Nobu Malibu being the WORST by far. We tried six different dishes - all were tasteless and uninspiring. If you are a 'foodie' then give this restaurant a miss. You simply need to buy a bottle of Ponzu...More

Set in Malibu, California, Nobu is an upscale Japanese restaurant. Food is fresh and well prepared. And you might just run into a few celebrities while dining at Nobu. There are three ways to dine: à la carte, omakase or omakase family style. With omakase,...More

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

We arrived around lunch time, and did not require a reservation. Although of note it was not high season for tourists in Malibu, hence they were very busy, but not at a point that everyone required a reservation.

Very expensive, you will need at least $100 dollars and that will get you 2-3 dishes that are 2-3 bites each
