The decor was pretty hip. It was in the Hard Rock Hotel.
The food I am very picky about since i know my Japanese cuisine. I ordered uni sushi, miso eggplant & wakame salad. The presentation was nice. But the eggplant was very oily. The uni I had at another place the night before was better (and a lot cheaper), and the salad was OK. There was not one Japanese person working there that I came into contact with or even saw. So, if you are looking for a fusion Japanese it may be OK, but pricey. If you want authentic Japanese, try somewhere else. And, dont sit in the bar unless youre willing to voice your opinion on what to watch! ;)
I was kind of expecting an authentic Japanese restaurant so I was disappointed in the ambiance and food.

My boyfriend and I made reservations at Nobu for a Friday night. We walked in and immediately had to walk around a photographer shooting photos of two scantily clad women eating the food (one girl looked like she was dressed for Girls Gone

Went to Nobu for a Bachelor Pary dinner. We ordered the 10-course Omakase dinner for our party of 15, and we were just blown away...
Wonderful attentive service...
about 4 plates of Sashimi came out, one after the other...each one melting in your mouth like butter...Tuna, yellowtail, and a few others...

Then the dishes started to warm up, and we received a lettuce wrap with scallop and Black cod. I thought I was going to keel over because of how unreal this dish was...I could have eaten 50 of them...

Some filet mignon, and 2 warm shrimp dishes were probably the most mediocre, but they were still very good...

then the whole snapper, which had a sauce that could cure cancer and bring world peace...

then some perfect sushi to complete the meal...

It worked out to $150 / person, all-in, and we had several bottles of sake, and some other drinks as well..
Everyone left satisfied and no one left hungry...

Nobu was a dining experience that is going to be hard to match...Bravo!...

Pros: You'd think the ocean was in the kitchen

Cons: Expensive...it is what it is...

If I hadn't already had one of the most exceptional meals of my life at the Nobu in Manhattan I probably would have given this one more stars-

But while the NY location is a setting worthy of the incredible sushi here- in Vegas the tables are all squashed together and you have zero privacy while you dine.

It's a shame because Nobu is a master and extremely creative.

As with most Vegas restaurants, Nobu definitely delivers more than just good food - it's a culinary experience.

Expect high prices (like $18.99 for 2 pieces of sushi), but while on vacation or for a special celebration (or when you want to impress a date, client, etc.), if you have the budget for it, Nobu is worth the expense. Definitely the kind of place you go to for the experience more than the food itself.

Owned by Robert DeNiro last I heard, this busy establishment is always hopping. Despite always being full (reservations definitely recommended), service is excellent and food brought to your table fresh and fast.

For the best Nobu experience, sit at the bar where all the sushi is prepared. Nobu sushi chefs are more than just chefs, they are performers.

I give Nobu 4 stars. I'd give them 5 but their prices are a little high for my own personal budget. My Nobu experience was a business dinner.

A couple hours ago I treated myself to a birthday dinner at Nobu, the Japanese restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The food was superb and appeasing both to the eye and the palate. Visually the presentation was a cross between Rembrandt and Michelangelo it started my taste buds dancing with joy from the first glimpse. Each dish was as carefully explained as it was prepared. As I placed each bite into my mouth, my palate was climbing up moonbeams, dancing on clouds, and sliding down rainbows. The food was carefully prepared with the finest ingredients and the flavor was incomparable. I had the one-hundred fifty dollar seven course Chefs? Sampler. I could describe in intricate detail every course, but that would take away from the mystery, that allows one?s imagination to run wild in eager anticipation as you?re awaiting the next course. Suffice it to say a glimpse is all I will divulge, the fois gras and Kobe beef with caviar made my legs nearly commence dancing. The significance of this is a thrice broken back, which has left me partially paralyzed and numb from the waist down. In addition not only is the quality unsurpassed, but the quantity as well. Nobu is a must add to your Bucket List. I?ve eaten at some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas both nouveau and classic. (Restaurants like the Alize? at the Top of the Palms and classic old school Vegas like the Golden Steer, both phenomenal, in my humble opinion.). The wait staff is friendly and accommodating, as well as knowledgeable and informative. I?ve eaten at restaurants from San Diego to Vancouver, BC. My last vice is the enjoyment of cuisines from around the world. Nobu has earned a spot at the top of my list as one of the most enjoyable restaurants I?ve ever experienced and some of the best food I?ve ever had the luxury to consume. (Tonight was my third visit, and the good lord willing, far from my last.) If there are chop sticks in Heaven then Nobu will be there as well.

Nobu is a place you must have reservations for as it is very busy and well worth it to boot. The food is amazing whether you want traditional Japanese of Sushi which it is famous for, its well worth it. With a reservation you should only wait about 15 minutes for a table and after that the service is amazing. If you are making a trip to Vegas and want an amazing dining experience, Nobu is a must stop.

I had a great time here on my B-day two weeks ago. The staff was fast and friendly. Our waiter was very helpful in selecting our meal. I will definitely go back. It was some of the best food I have ever had. Try the Black Cod for the hot dish it was some of the best food I have ever had.

Noba has to be teh bets restaurant on the strip. The food is fantastic - but cost a little astronomical though, but definately well worth it. You will not be dissappointed!

After reading the previous two reviews I feel inclined to write one. I was at Nobu two weeks ago with a large group of people. There were nine of us at the table and all walked away beyond satisfied. We had the chief's tasting menu and if I tried to explain how incredibly good each course was, this would be a book. Our waiter/the rest of the people who helped out were great in explaining each course, getting us drinks and helping out. They may have changed staffs since the previous bad reviews.
If you want to have an amazing meal, this is the place to go. As far as sushi standards are, this is at the top of the class. Highly recommend this place, but also recommend being ready to pay severly for the quality food.

A NYC advertising exec introduced me to Nobu's extraordinary Japanese cuisine and exceptional service in the fall of 97. Based on past experience I jumped at the opportunity to attend a friend's Birthday celebration at Nobu last week. Unfortunately my friends, all highly successful, professional gay men (an Ivy League oil tycoon, a flight crewman for a charter airline catering to the ultra rich and famous, a prominent Las Vegas show dancer, and an e-Commerce exec) experienced much attitude from the moment we walked Nobu. The hostess rolled her eyes when we asked to add an extra guest (who would arrive later). We offered to make up for any inconvenience. They reluctantly added an extra seat to our adequate table after we seated. The waiter incessantly blabbed as if high on speed, scoffed at a request for Chardonnay instead of Sake, and ignored us after somebody mentioned a seafood allergy which prevented him from following the traditional Japanese course sequence. We hailed him for drinks after 30 minutes, and reminded him of our request about 25 minutes later when our food arrived. He forgot us but meticulously attended to his other tables? needs. In the meantime our wheelchair bound friend arrived and laboriously wheeled through the restaurant tables, finally reaching us, only to have the hostess tell him to leave because she noticed his foot (the one which was not in a cast) had a sandal on it. Consequently he had to wheel all the way back out. All friends except the Birthday boy wanted to leave even though he voiced great disappointment in the events to that point. We noted the abrasive vibe of the staff, the haughty attitude, and agreed it had been the worst dining experience any of us had EVER! Was it because we?re gay? Who knows, but it certainly wasn?t a ?gay? experience, we?ll let our friends know about it, and won't be returning. Chef Nobu Matsuhisa should be ashamed of this staff. No, Boo!

I am shocked that this place has as many stars as it does on this review. At best, it should NOT exceed 2 stars. Our waiter was rude and very short when we asked about a particular sushi. When we tried to use our gift card, he told us it that gift card was not accepted, even though we received it from our friends who dined their the month before!
So instead of arguing, we just paid for it with our money. After we got back home, we contacted the manager there, who was EQUALLY rude to us, even AFTER she told us that the waiter was wrong, and SHOULD have taken that gift card. DO NOT EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME going to this restaurant!!!! Unless your Brittany Spears or Paris Hilton, you can forget about great service. Nobu has gotten a bit egotistical and big-headed.

Made reservation through our consierge for 6:30. Upon arrival told for the first time that we had to vacate our table at 8:00. Having no other arrangements, we reluctantly stayed. Food was good but pricey. Noisy and waiters in great hurry to feed people and get them out of there.

At 8:00 sharp' while still eating, we were told to pay and leave. Our bill was produced in seconds and two buss boys cleaned our table immediately with great efficiency. I travel for years all over the world and never had this experience. Bizzare.

It was the definition of "Fast Food" at high prices.

Go where people love to see you. Avoid the arrogant frustration of the people at Nobu.

I was wowed from the moment I walked in the door. The design of the restaurant was unique and stylish without looking too trendy. Between that and an interesting clientelle (which I agree can be a bit annoying, but hey it's the Hard Rock Hotel) we remained very entertained throughout the course of our meal. Ordinarily I have great disdain for any Asian fusion cuisine. However the Japanese/Peruvian style practiced here is brilliant. They play off of each other wonderfully and have what almost all of the other attempts lack, focus. This is not where I'd go to order my day-to-day sushi favorites because it is expensive. You should order that which gives the chef an opportunity to display his talents.

We were seated promptly and the server was very helpful in reccomending a variety of dishes to try. The sushi was great but the prices are crazy.....As much as I had a good experience here I wouldn't go back based on the value. I spent more money the previous night at a different restrauant on the strip and felt I got my money's worth, but not here....I've had sushi in LA and NYC just as good for 33% less.

I've had a great dining experience at Nobu Next Door in New York City and was looking forward to dining here. Overall I was not impressed. We tried to be advantureous and took some of our waiter's recommendations. Unfortunately none of the dishes seem all that special that you couldn't find in mid-tier sushi restaurants. Everything was fresh but for the premium price the food lacked innovation as one would expect at Nobu. My food bill with tip came out to be $100pp. One advice skip the Tuna on a chip. It was a 5 very small portion of sashimi tuna on a ruffles potato chip. That was my biggest disappointment of the night.

Nobu is simply amazing. I was literally in heaven for the 2 hours that I was there. I will admit that it is a bit pricy, however, it's definitely worth it. We had the sashimi salad, black cod in miso, rock shrimp, toro with miso and caviar, yellowtail sashimi, and finished off with their signature bento box dessert. All of the dishes were plate-licking good. I definitely look forward to going back!!

I went there mostly because I wanted to experience the trendy & hip atmosphere and the great food. I had some fancy appetizer (forgot what it was) and some sushi, and yes, it was delicious but somehow i felt like i got ripped off considering the amount of food i got with the price i paid for it. But i guess that's what happens when you go to any fancy place. What i was most disappointed was the atmosphere...the whole restaurant is just real dark and there isn't any trendy & hip atmosphere i was hoping for. All I can remeber was seeing these bamboo (?) partitions throughout the restaurant and that was it (i'm writing this review a year later from the actual visit so i may not be accurate). From pictures i've seen, it looks like Sushi Roku at Caesars has a better atmosphere.

I've been to the Nobu in NYC and London and this one does not disappoint in terms of quality and style. Still, Nobu is overpriced no matter where you are - while the food is great and the restaurant has a refined atmosphere, there was nothing truly amazing to justify the high prices. Go check it out if you want to see what Nobu is all about but don't go out of your way to do so.

I went to Nobu with a large group and was disappointed in the service and presentation. The dining area was way too crowded and to serve a group of 25 they completely compromised the Nobu experience. As always, the food was very good and we ordered the tasting menu which should have assisted the ability to serve a large group but the service was marginal and presentation was horrible. I also ate at Nobu in Miami with a large group and had a phenomenal experience - one of my most impressive dining experience ever - so I was very disappointed with the lack of competence in Las Vegas.

The food is still worth going but if you have a chance I would certainly recommend the Miami restaurant first and New York second for a great Nobu experience in the U.S.

New Styled Sashimi should rename to plain Jayne sashimi, plating is simple, and fish is day old. I will give two dead fish for their sushi. Additionally find another brand of sushi rice. Regardless of fish used, rice makes the sushi. Without the good rice it is simply called sashimi.

Nobu was the one of the best dining experiences ever. I live in NY and have been to many fine restaurants here, as well as in Vegas, and Nobu was great. We were a party of 5 and they accomodated us quickly (we had a reservation). The waiter, Alex, was so nice and knowledgable. He recommeded dishes for us and every one was excellent. We even let him pick one out and bring it to us which was probably the best one, wish I could remember what it was! Anybody who gave this a bad review or complained about their 'rolls'...don't listen to them. You don't go to Nobu for rolls. Granted we got two different rolls to try, but that was along with a whole bunch of other dishes. If you're not willing to try the real dishes they offer then go to Sushi Express on the corner and get a california roll. And as far as people complaining about the rude people, I just didn't see it, from the hostess to the waiter to all the other people who helped out, everyone was nice and friendly.

We love Sushi and Nobu had the best Sushi either one of us had ever had. The quality of the fish was superior to anything we had before. I would highly recommend the appetizer with the yellowtail and jalapeno....unlike anything I've ever tasted.

Make sure you make a reservation....it was packed when we were there. We had a reservation and were promptly seated when we arrived. Our server was right on the ball. It was amazing how quickly our orders were brought out to us. Can't wait to go back to Vegas so we can eat there again.

It is a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

If you go to Nobu and ask for White Zin, California Rolls, and Teriyaki, then you shouldn't be there. You'll likely receive bad service because the server will think that you have bad taste. Snotty, sure, but that's also the key to their success.

Food is excellent and can be innovative but still not sure if it's worth the price. The sashimi definitely isn't worth the price as one can get fish just as fresh for a bit cheaper. So pay for a few innovative dishes.

Went here with a friend a few weeks ago. All of the waiters were very friendly, except for our waitress, who was completely nasty. She had an attitude and rolled her eyes in our direction several times. Since we had not received a drink menu, I asked for a white zinfandel, to which she snapped "We don't DO white zin!". I later found out that she doesn't DO very much because neither of us received our soups. When my friend politely asked about them she basically blamed ME for the mishap because i had asked for a soup substitution. Apparently that had thrown the computer off. Last time I checked it was the WAITRESS' job to make sure that the food is brought out, not the customers'. She gave us a half-a$$ apology (probably because she thought her tip would be in jeopardy) and then stormed away. Management needs to tell her to leave her teenage angst at the door and focus on good customer service. As for the food, the sauce on my teriyaki beef tasted like it was straight out of a bottle and the bento box dessert ( a chocolate lava cake with green tea ice cream) was nothing special. I will definitely skip this place on my next trip to Vegas.

We were looking forward to dine this restaurant since we planed the trip to Las Vegas, however food was good but just ordinaly Japanese food with bit over priced, it myself being Japanese I maybe giving bit hush comment...If you are looking for having good traditional Japanese food with trendy dining room, maybe the good plac to try.

The quality of the food @ Nobu is very good overall , but the way the ingredients are prepared lacks refinement (which does not justify the price). The service is friendly & usually spot-on but be careful for hidden fees (edamame set out @ table before introduction is not complementary - costs $5.50). I did order the $100 omakase. The raw fish courses (sans sushi) were tasty but unbalanced. The hot courses were disappointing - black cod cooked unevenly, toro (gave me scraps). Sushi: fish excellent but too much rice/too sweet. Dessert: wonderful - flouress chocolate cake w/ green tea ice cream. Conclusion: excellent if it were $60, mediocre for $100

Nobu was a beautiful, if surprisingly small, space. My cocktail - a champagne-based martini - was one of the best (and most unique) I've ever had. The edamame had the tastiest large salt flakes sprinkled over the top. The table-runners were model gorgeous. But the sushi and tempura were only average. The latter had many interesting a la carte options (pumpkin!) but the batter was a bit heavy.

We had the chef's tasting menu, and were absolutely floored. Everything we had was great, was served at the right pace, and was the best Japanese food and sushi we've ever had. It wasn't cheap, but fairly priced for the quality. We, too, found the service to be exceptional, and when each course was served, it was explained in detail. The room was loud, but fun and a hip trendy crowd, including Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla on the night we were there. We would recommend the tasting menu to get a taste of their signature dishes. Outstanding!

Perfection in sushi! Loved every moment of our dinner! Had the waitress pick out her favorite sushi rolls and hot dish and was not disappointed. Had reservations and was seated promptly, good wine/drink list, good lighting....they know what they are doing at Nobu. Didn't think it was too expensive either, despite some of the reviews posted here.

My boy friend and I took a vacation to Vegas last weekend. I have heard good things about Nobu, so I was excited to check it out when we're there. First of all, the service was AMAZING! I just had to mention that. We're very satisfied with appetizers; Yellow Tail Tartar, Yellotail Sashimi with Ponzu & Jalapeno, & Kobe Beef (tataki style). The Y.T. was so fresh & full of flavor & Kobe Beef was melting on our tongue!! After experiencing the flvor explosion in our mouths, we're dying to try some sushi and rolls. We have ordered Albacore and Tuna Sushi, House Special, Spicy Tuna, and Shrimp Tempura Roll. Surprisingly, they were just okay. The rolls were rather disappointing if you're from LA! However, I still recommend Nobu, because some of thier dishes I mentioned earlier were just too yummy to miss out!!

We go back to Nobu each time we're in Las Vegas, which, if you're from San Francisco, is really saying something. I love the "new-style" sashimi and the white fish toradito. My dining companion is a certified hard-core sushi freak, and was wowed by the quality of the toro and the kampachi. The biggest surprise was the yummy banana spring roll dessert, one doesn't normally associate sushi places with good desserts. Our one caution about Nobu would be the pricing on the menu. Although an order of toro nigiri is two pieces, the menu price ($12) is per piece. The check included $48 for two orders of toro. Be careful! We are, however, willing to pay this once a year for the exeptional fish at Nobu.

I HAD A WONDERFUL DINNER AT NOBU'S. AFTER MAKING RESERVATIONS WEEKS IN ADVANCE THROUGH NO FAULT OF THE RESTURANT I WAS UNABLE TO APPEAR AT MY APPOINTED TIME. AFTER CALLING THE RESTURANT THEY SAID THEY COULD SEAT ME AN HOUR LATER WHICH WAS PERFECT. THE WAITER MADE SUGGESTIONS AS TO HOW TO INTERPRET THE MENU BY TASTE AND DISH SIZE. A MIX OF HOT AND COLD DISHES WERE SUGGESTED. THE COUPLE SEATED NEXT TO US WAS FRIENDLY AND TOLD US ABOUT THEIR CHOICES. INTERESTING INGREDIENTS CONSTURTED IN AN UNUAL MANNER. I'D GO BACK TOMORROW

My friends and I were absolutely thrilled by our experience here. The food was incredible, the service was very helpful, and the place had a really cool look. No, it's not an intimate romantic restaurant, but it is cool and fun. Don't just go for sushi, which is perhaps a tad expensive although excellent, but absolutely try the more interesting hot and cold dishes and tempura.

I'm a regular when it comes to sushi; 3-4 nights a week I have sushi for dinner and frequent lunches. Nobu isn't the place to go on a daily basis, but I eat there as often as possible! I'm a Vegas local, so I'm lucky to be close. I went to the Nobu in New York and the ambiance and food is just as great!

The sushi is excellent, but isn't even the focus of the meal. The hot and cold dishes from the kitchen are unbelievable. The toro toban-yaki, cod on lettuce, and jalapeno yellowtail are a few of my favorites! Nobu has the best dessert I've ever had at a sushi restaurant too. Coupled with flavored saki (my favorite is the concord grape or strawberry) you will have a meal that you will never forget. Don't forget to make a reservation, especially if you want a table.

I'm Japanese (not Japanese American), and I can tell you that sushi here is GOOD. However, I can get a sushi like that in Tokyo for 1/2 the price, but I'd have to look REALLY hard to find a good sushi like that in this country. I don't agree with the claims of some reviewers that sushi here is mediocre...I had the $55 sushi special and it was fabulous. I was quite impressed with non-sushi food as well, and felt that those were more reasonable pricewise. Ambiance would be nicer if it weren't for the clientelle. You have typical Hard Rock crowd hanging out here...drunk, loud, obnoxious, and pretentious. I loved the food, but I'm gonna keep looking for a sushi joint with better value.

I have read many of the reviews on CitySearch and I find that the people who are not satisfied with Nobu are there for the wrong reasons. If you are looking for a quiet intimate dinner you may want to rethink Nobu afterall it is inside the Hard Rock. Secondly if you are there only for the sushi you are missing out on wonderful and unique sushi style dishes, their tasting menu and several great options from the hot kitchen. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and intends to try and educate people as to what they might be missing. Don't get me wrong, if you want to go to Nobu for sushi it is still a great idea. I have yet to be disappointed with the quality or service. They have always done a great job in my eyes.

Slightly pushy service (they ask you in about one breath whether you would like flat or sparkling, no chance to ask for plain, i.e. "free" water). The peruvian influence saves this place, as the hot plate we ordered was delish as was the cold ceviche. The sushi however, was mediocre, we tried the spicy tuna roll and there was nothing spicy or interesting about it. The house roll was alright, but nothing so spectacular as to remember what was in it. The drinks (mostly variations of martinis) are way too overpriced. Will probably explore other sushi places on my next visit to Vegas...

Absolutely, the best in Japanese cuisine. I firmly suggest that any new patron try the chef selection, which is composed of several sample plates, which are delectable. Also, the cold Sake in the bamboo shot glasses also superb. Definitely the best cuts of fish and meat go into every dish. How do I know? Because you can taste the difference! I must also give props to the table service, both times I have been there the waiter knew everything there was to know about each specific dish and their recommendations of what sake went with what food was right on the money!

Just spent a weekend in Vegas, and Nobu was the hands down highlight for everyone that went. Three of us couldn't decide on what we wanted to order so we asked one of the busboys what he thought the best items were. His picks did not dissappoint! Go with the Hot and Cold specials and trust the staff's advice. Everything suggested was incredible.

Nobu is the coolest, best sushi house in Vegas. Make your way through the hotties at the Hard Rock, and find the best sushi bar in town. Always great looking people, and the fish is the best! The bad reviews I see here all have one thing in common, NOT sitting at the sushi bar. Sit at the bar, not at a table! Let the sushi men do their magic, and you will eat the best sushi of your life. This is "new" sushi, so if you want a Teriyaki chicken and California roll, try the buffet at Bally's!

THIS HAS TO BE THE ABSOLUTE WORST RESTAURANT IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!! EVERYTHING BADLY IMAGINABLE IS HERE. IF YOU WANT THE MOST MEDIOCRE SUSHI FOR A RIDICULOUS PRICE, GO TO NOBU (LAS VEGAS). IF YOU WANT TO BE TREATED W/ DISRESPECT, DO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT YOUR HOT PLATE TO BE COLD ON ARRIVAL, GO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT YOUR FOOD TO ARRIVE 30 - 45 MIN. AFTER ORDERING (AND COLD), GO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT A MANGER TO LAUGH AT YOUR COMPLAINTS, DO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT YOUR $14 MARTINI MADE W/ SMIRNOFF, GO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT YOUR TABLE BY THE KITCHEN, GO TO NOBU. IF YOU WANT BLAND FISH, DO TO NOBU. IF YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PALATE, GO TO NOBU.

OTHER THAN ALL THIS, IT WAS GREAT. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I DIDN'T BOTHER W/ DESSERT.

Honestly, one of the best Sushi restaurants I have ever been to! I'm from the northwest, and fresh sushi is a given here, but to find that kind of fresh in Vegas, was unexpected! The food was incredible...I went with 4 of my girlfriends, of which 2 had never had sushi in their lives, and all of us would go back in a heartbeat! We let the waiter choose our menu for us, and were suprised with one incredible dish, after another!!! You must check it out, if you are in the Vegas area and love great sushi!

I think I over expected. Nobu in NYC is over-the-top. Nobu Las vegas is good solid sushi... guess what?... so is the sushi served at the little sushi joint inside the Luxor, and less expensive. Nobu absolutely has the "over-all experiance" contest won, hands down. It's a cool space, great to be able to break away from the excitment of the Hard Rock for some delish sushi in a cool spot. BUT, for no frills, and less expensive and DEFENITELY less of a "need-to-be-seen" crowd... try that little sushi joint in the Luxor... and by-the-by have the saki even if it is in the AM... it's delish! Otherwise enjoy Nobu it was very enjoyable, solid sushi.

I don't know why people complain about Nobu. The food is consistently fresh and well prepared, service is certainly attentive, and the ambiance is trendy yet classy. I challenge anyone out there to recommend a better sushi place than Nobu.
If a young, hip, fun-loving crowd bothers people, then they should never go near the Hard Rock to begin with, but the crowd is no reflection on the food, staff, service.

We went to Nobu with high expectations about the innovative cuisine and the elegant decor. Indeed, the restaurant is attractive in a spare & minimal way. However, the environment was disappointing -- more of a brash & noisy Vegas high-rollers' place, than the subtle, subdued establishment we were expecting. The food was good -- tasty yellowtail sashimi, elegant (but not spectacular) sushi, interesting (but somewhat overrated) "cod in miso sauce" -- their signature dish. Service was attentive, tho it did tend towards the "Fries with that..." up-sell approach that we'd seen elsewhere in Vegas.

All in all, quite an enjoyable meal, but very overrated & not a match for our Nobu expectations!
(And obviously, once you leave the restaurant, you are returned to the din of the Hard Rock Hotel casino -- very disorienting!)

My partner and I have been to both the NY NOBU and the London NOBU ... this is neither!! DO NOT GO, IF YOU ARE EXPECTING THE SUPERIOR CUISINE OF NOBU!!! The ambience was that of a frat party, with multiple loud bachelorette and bachelor party gatherings ... the piece-de-resistance was when the wooden chopsticks flew over our heads between the parties! The classy serenity of both the NY and London Nobu was not evident at this location. We stayed despite the loud atmosphere due to our love of the imaginative flavourful cuisine (and not having an alternative reservation on a saturday night) ... this was also extremely disappointing! We ordered the tasting menu, which was anything but tasty. There was no explosion of flavours or exciting imaginative combinations ... it was bland and banal. NOBU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO HAVE HIS NAME ATTACHED TO THIS RESTAURANT!

The prices are fair for the quality, selection and attentive service. Start with the ahi tuna salad which practically melts in your mouth. Creative rolls and standard nigiri are fresh and packed with flavor. Fun martinis and, of course, sake are perfect complements to your meal. Delightful desserts (graciously provided free-of-charge by an apologetic waiter after a rowdy bachelor/spilled beer incident) are the perfect final touch to a wonderful meal.
