I have eaten at this Nobu before, as well as the one in Las Vegas. My group all had the Omakase this time, and it was very good. It just wasn't as good as it has been. I really feel that for $150/person I could...More

One word: yum! Classic and "new" Japanese dishes are on the menu. We had some of each - and you cannot go wrong with anything. The "fish and chips" and marinated black miso cod are fantastic!

Great food abd service. Toro is my standard quality check for any sushi spot. Not ridiculously over priced and nice and marbled. Sake collection could be better. All in all great meal for a tourist trap. Also great for large parties. Just make a reservation.

After Nobu in NY, when I saw Nobu in San Diego, I had to go. I did not regret it. The food was heavenly, the service excellent and the ambience great. When in San Diego, don't skip Nobu!

Having been to the location in New York City with friends, I was super excited to take my family to the location in San Diego. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. Restaurant was beautifully decorated.

I have had Nobu on my bucket list and was excited to have the opportunity to go to the San Diego location. Sadly our meal was disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it. Our reservation was at 7:30 p.m. Friday, but the restaurant was already out...More

We paid 90$ per person without wine (tip included) for a good sushi meal. All we got were small portions of (very) fresh fish and rice + some sashimi and a bit of tempura. It was all very good but between the seven of us...More
