Michele and I ate at Nobu in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on September 5th.
I went there with high hopes that it would be a great sushi experience similar to Uchi in Austin or Roku in West Hollywood.
After starting with some Edamame and Vodka Tonics, we decided to have the Omakase – Chef’s Choice for $100 each. This came with 7 dishes.
Overall, I was pretty underwhelmed. Considering the cost of the meal and the reputation of the restaurant I was very disappointed. I was expecting to be blown away by many of the dishes, but none of them really lived up to my expectations.
The decor of the restaurant was nice. One large wall was made out of small smooth rocks, and I really liked the looks of it. One complaint I had was that you needed to go out of the restaurant and into the casino to go to the restroom. I know it’s like this at every hotel, but when you’re at a nice restaurant like this, it really takes you out of the mood.
Service was good. The food came out at a good pace, and empty dishes were cleared quickly. The servers and bus boys were very polite and we we never felt like we were rushed or waiting for anything. They even folded our napkins for us when we went to the restroom.
