Food was good and of a high standard but doesn't justify the $$$ given the mid range options available. The sashimi was average - fresh but not amazing cuts.. the miso black cod and scallops were incredible as always.. service - pleasant.

Stunning food and waiter was amazing at recommending plates and portions as you would expect. Cocktails yummy and the venue is exquisite. Loved the waves crashing as we ate. It's definitely a place to go for special occasions with friends or partner. Avoid celeb watching and just enjoy the ambiance. Dress is smart casual but they are so down to... More

Food was outstanding and the service was the best we had in LA, hard to find, but they do not need a huge sign, place was packed. Better have reservation or you won't get in.

Nobu is one of those places that you want to go over & over again. The cuisine is exquisite, even for people who is not into raw food or seafood. The Yofro dessert really tops of our senses, Great ambience. Highly recommended. We went on a business dinner & client was very well surprised.

The food was great and the waiters were wonderful at recommending dishes but the atmosphere in there was a bit flat. As someone who usually goes to Nobu in London I was surprised how different it was. A good place but have been told Nobu Malibu is better so may go there next time instead.

I enjoyed a nice meal with a friend on Sunday evening. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and happy to recommend dishes, remembering that my friend was allergic to dairy each time after we told him at the start - my friend ate the squid "pasta" which was pretty impressive and I enjoyed the yellowtail jalepeno, ribeye crispy onions and Wagyu...

Being a great fan of the Japanese cuisine, I am, of course, a Nobu-addict. Never been to this location though, which was a wonderful experience. However, the Malibu location is a more special dining experience than this one. But wherever you go: The Black Cod is a must-eat.

Love the food! The interior is not what you expect from a Nobu restaurant. To bright and not pivate enough.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
