The restaurant is perfectly located on the Pacific Ocean. Overlooking the stunning view, Nobu serve the finest Japanese dishes. The service is slick, professional and friendly, they are willing to explain everything on the menu & recommend great dishes. There was two of us and our bill was around $350 with no alcohol. This is an exclusive dining experience with... More

Impeccable service, gorgeous view, and absolutely delightful food. Had some of the best food I have ever eaten. The crab tempura dish was out of this world. Expensive but worth it!

Better not to land up without reservation. The outside seating is very romantic, by the ocean...but can get nippy, so be prepared. Good cocktails and a wonderful menu of appetizers and entrees! Celebrity Chef Matsuhisa's Neo Japanese cuisine with a fusion of Peruvian...is great magic. And every time. Sushi, Brussel sprouts, Tacos....all yum. No way you want to miss the... More

The view, atmosphere, and food were amazing. Ordered the Black Cod, Rock Shrimp Tempura, Yellowtail Sashimi, Shrimp Tempura Roll all were incredible.

Practically perfect in every way. Nobu Malibu is something special. Book a table (well in advance) and enjoy up close views of the ocean. There is nothing more refreshing than sampling perfectly prepared sushi while watching waves head towards the shore. Having dined at various Nobu locations, we opted for dishes on the menu prepared with local Malibu flavour. The... More

Friendly and welcoming service by the valet's, hostess Ashley and my server, Alisha (sp?). Both hospitable, seating me without reservation, on the balcony. Enjoyed crispy okra and grilled shishito peppers with a Belvedere pink grapefruit vodka. Excellent service. Decided to stay for dinner. Moved to the lounges (where there is service) in the evening where I met up with a... More

Nobu Malibu is an exceptional fine dining experience on a gorgeous strip of beach overlooking the Pacific. The food is creative and fresh beyond compare, although perhaps, not quite "the value" of other Nobu establishments, value being interpreted subjectively as all these restaurants are very expensive. My only criticism is that the waiting staff is not as sophisticated as the... More

Make reservations ahead of time and ask for a table on the terrace. View is spectacular! Nobu is Nobu and you know the food is great. We love the classics, black kod, topan yaki prime beef, tempura etc. Worth a trip from LA to Malibu just to visit Nobu.

We felt so lucky to be seated closest to the ocean on this beautiful, warm day. Lunch overlooking the ocean with the sun shining was just fantastic. My friend and I shared a bottle of Ruinart and shared multiple plates. Highly recommend

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
