Very fresh seafood, great view! You need to have a reservation! Every one who’s any one shows up here.

This is more of a “scene” type of place than foodie delight. We had a reservation for 6pm but didn’t get seated until 630. The waiter constantly tried to sell us on the seabass(which we didn’t order). I’m certain we can get just as good...More

The place has an amazing view. There is even enough place for pictures and selfies outside. The food was very tasty but I wish there would be much more of it! The prices are really sky high and the portions are tiny. Sushi and other...More

Wonderful dining experience overlooking the magnificent a Pacific surf. Nobu is a wonderful dining experience with friendly attentive service and delicious gourmet food. The black cod may be the besti piece of fish I’ve ever eaten anywhere!

I have eaten and the original Matsuhiza, the nobu in NY city and his place in Kyoto. This is by far the best of the bunch. The location is right on the water, and the place is simply beautiful. The decor and design are outstanding....More

Nobu helped launch worldwide high end Japanese fusion—in its case Peruvian—and has itself expanded to the point of losing its edge. But this incarnation features a whole Santa Monica only menu and its placement by the ocean is beautiful. Expect many dates trying very hard...More

The food is good, but way overpriced. The service is terrible. Arrogant people used to work in a fully booked place pretend to serve guest as they were there for free. Long waiting time even with a reservation. Great place you want to show off,...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.

Very expensive, you will need at least $100 dollars and that will get you 2-3 dishes that are 2-3 bites each
