    Food was good. Servers rushed us to leave so we had to eat in less than an hour. They insisted to pack the food to go when we were still eating.

    It was our first time dining at Nobu. It was my son’s 25th birthday. The service was great. Our server was very helpful recommending food choices. The sushi was delicious. The waygu dumplings, lobster tacos and waygu tacos were absolutely delicious.

    Food was absolutely amazing but even better was the service! First time at this restaurant and we didn't know what to order. Our server had suggestions for every course and knew we were sharing. She did an amazing job and the food was the best we've ever had for sushi and maki rolls and appetizers. Definitely coming back!

    Excellent brunch. We tried the steak and eggs; as well as, the chirashi. Both were delicious. The Bloody Mary was one of the best I have had in DC. I would definitely recommend to others and intend to go back.

    Ambiance was beautiful which fit the occasion being celebrated. Hostess were pleasant. Waitress was pretty aloof. Our table of 8 waited long periods between being seated, our orders being taken, and receiving our food. The waitress also refused to give us her name which was extremely strange. But, we heard the next table call her by her name. All in all it was me and my groups first time there. We were a group of black men and women. Our waitress was Asian. Simply stating for context as I do not know for sure why we were being treated this way. The food taste was subpar at best. I won’t be returning mostly because of the food (I am a foodie and I go where flavor is best).

    I went to Nobu for my birthday dinner and it was amazing. The food, atmosphere, and service was 5 star. I will be returning really soon and I’ve been telling everyone about how great our experience was. Bo was our server and she was so attentive, we never had to search for her or hunt her down, she fulfilled our every need.

    Least servings of any Nobu omikase with no salad course. Teacups thin and undignified of this chain; should be stoneware. Not enough effort placed in ambience or decor.

    Took my girlfriend for her birthday and we each enjoyed the Chef’s Omakase course. The dishes were unbelievable, the drinks and wine were excellent. The only downside was the busser rushing to remove plates and when your spending that much for your food I would really like to take my time and savor every last bit. I also do not like the handheld payment systems at high end restaurants I think that lowers the quality of the experience. I don’t normally look at the bill I just hand my card over so I would have appreciated to be informed that gratuity was included. Overall a great experience. I think that Sushi Nakazawa is a little bit better quality and nicer ambiance for the same price.

    I’ve been to Nobu in Tokyo, NYC and Malibu. All outstanding. This one did not measure up. Football should not be playing in the lounge, and T-shirts are not appropriate dinner attire. After $1,000 tasting menu for three, we left hungry and stopped for a burger on the way home
