Don't let the lack of reservation availability or high prices dissuade you from dining at Nobu in Malibu. We decided to give it a try for an early dinner without a reservation at 5:30 and we were seated right away in the main dining room inside.
One can also eat at the sushi bar when available. The setting and interior design for the restaurant are amazing--with the view from the outside terrace the best in Malibu, particularly at sunset.
Our server was extremely knowledgeable, patient and helpful with Nobu's complicated menu and large variety of both cold and warm starters and entrees.
We enjoyed the Matsuhisha green salad with the spicy seafood soup to start, followed by the excellent yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño (one of the signature Nobu dishes), then both tuna and lobster tacos and the eggplant with miso. We also ordered the ocean trout with crispy spinach and the grilled cauliflower--all very good.
The presentation and service is outstanding and we enjoyed the entire experience.
Yes, prices are high, and yes, it is more than worth it for a special evening out.
