Great food abd service. Toro is my standard quality check for any sushi spot. Not ridiculously over priced and nice and marbled. Sake collection could be better. All in all great meal for a tourist trap. Also great for large parties. Just make a reservation.

After Nobu in NY, when I saw Nobu in San Diego, I had to go. I did not regret it. The food was heavenly, the service excellent and the ambience great. When in San Diego, don't skip Nobu!

Having been to the location in New York City with friends, I was super excited to take my family to the location in San Diego. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. Restaurant was beautifully decorated.

We paid 90$ per person without wine (tip included) for a good sushi meal. All we got were small portions of (very) fresh fish and rice + some sashimi and a bit of tempura. It was all very good but between the seven of us...More

Food is so great!!!!! We ask for a little of everything and could not stop eating jaja. Service is very good too but a bit confusing as a lot of waiters keep coming to the table.

Excellent dining experience at NOBU in San Diego. Amazing food, atmosphere & service. King crab tacos, shishito peppers, black cod miso, shrimp tempura sushi, & spicy rock shrimp were the standout dishes. Wonderful drinks as well. And, located in the fun Gaslight District.
