This restaurant has a fabulous atmosphere. Eating outside on a platform overlooking the resort and ocean is incredible. The food is prepared by one of the worlds greatest sushi chefs. An experience of a life time.

We did not make reservations either night and were seated immediately. Service was friendly, knew the menu, and fast ... but not push. Food quality was unparalleled.

We went here for our Anniversary and loved it. It was our first visit to a Nobu restaurant and was not sure what to expect or what to order. Our server made us feel welcomed and guided us through the menu, making suggestions after inquiring about our food likes and dislikes. Her suggestions were just wonderful and we had a... More

The Nobu at the Four Seasons Lanai is great but being from NY it falls just short of Nobu NY. The chef uses all local ingredients, which is beneficial to any specials of the day they may have. The outdoor setting is very beautiful. Bring your Platinum card.

Japanese cuisine is not all sushi and raw fish. We ordered a variety of things and they were all very good. However by the time we ordered a couple drinks and a nice bottle of wine, the bill for two people was over $600. Most of what we ordered is not shown on the menu on their website

Whether you go for the sushi, the hibachi grill or the delicious entrees , you will have memorable meal at Nobu. With its poolside tables you are treated to a special dining experience. The prices are expensive but the quality of the food and the presentation make it worth the trip. Try the omikase meals for an extra special treat!

This was our first dining experience at Nobu, so I cannot compare to the others. We were in relaxed vacation mode and didn't want to make any decisions, so we opted for the chef's choice which provided several plates, largely selected by the chef. I can't say it was amazing for 120 bucks per person, but we enjoyed the experience.... More

My wife and I ate at Nobus 3 out of the 5 nights that we stayed at the 4 Seasons and every night was a fantastic experience. We found the food to be very creative and tasty and not just the typical Japanese. One night the restaurant found out it was my birthday and Rex, one of chefs, made two... More
