We eat sushi regularly and were excited to try Megu (at least my husband's been wanting to try it for a few years). We were so disappointed in our meal, despite the service being top-notch. The food was bland or way too oily (the Asian Salad on the Omakase menu, in particular). We left smelling like oily beef and without... More

We made last minute reservations for an early time and it was restaurant week. Most wonderful meal in all ways, food, ambiance and service. Had the shrimp appetizer and the flaming Kobe beef. Best I've ever had. Dessert was a bit uninspired but by then, it was not that important. Glass of wine was a bit pricey but very good.

This is my second visit to Megu. The first time was almost 2 years back and I enjoyed it but had nothing to rave about. This time however I have to say, it was incredible. We put a nice selection from the a-la-carte menu together so we could sample and try as many dished possible. Presentation of the food is... More

Ok the place is nicely decorated and clean but the over priced Kobe and sushi not worth it. I guess that is what you pay for ..the ice sculpture. The service was not that great either. The place was empty at 9pm on a Friday Night.... Did we miss the memo.......I wish I could say more. Jerry Ehrlich from the... More

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday, and it certainly was a memorable experience. When you first come downstairs, the first thing you notice is exceptional design. There's an ice Buddha sculpture in the center of the dining room "floating" in water and rose petals— it's absolutely beautiful. The food can be described as modern Japanese cuisine offering sushi,... More

Was taken to this restaurant by someone who provides services to our company. It was VERY overpriced!! The 6 oz steak $98 (Kobe beef) but absolutely outrageous. The wine list was very pricey and the entire place was not comfortable to be at. Very pretentious! We arrived at 6:30 p.m. on a Tuesday night and the bar was empty-no one... More

The food was great as was the atmosphere. However we had a waiter, presumably a manager as he was wearing a suit. IT seemed like he really didn't want to be there and he was not happy to serve us. Thus one felt like we couldn't really ask him for what we wanted.

Exquisite decor, great bartender making lychee coladas, and charming servers. A gilt city coupon allowed us a three course dinner for two with fantastic choices. The food was heavenly and artfully prepared.will definitely return even without coupon.
