Nobu Malibu is a dining experience of the highest order. From entry, to bar area, to seating, Nobu accentuates not only the ambience, but the entire eating event. Professional service and amazing delicacies are the order. Whitefish, miso black cod, rock shrimp, tempura king crab...More

only downside to this place -- it draws a eyeroll - inducing, stereotypical LA "wanna be" crowd, who too often seem more interested in taking selfies in front of the NOBU sign, getting drunk, and/or yelling loudly about the pending "deals" they're about to make...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
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

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.
