Food and presentation were truly remarkable. Some of the best i've ever had. Worth every cent.

My husband made reservations at Megu NYC for my birthday and it was the not a good experience. First, it took him 3 days to make reservations for our table (18 people), as his information was passed from person to person over the phone and no one would call him back for days. Second, while at the restaurant the orders were screwed up and people were missing their meals. And third, which was the worst of all, is that the bill was screwed up so badly that it took the staff 1 hour and 10 min to sort it out, and we never made it to our second destination and we paid the limo driver 1 hour and a half over because he was waiting for us for so long by the restaurant!! We were extremely unsatisfied, people were frustrated and while it's somewhat understandable that an order can be occasionally messed up due to a large party, A RESTAURANT OF SUCH "HIGH CLASS" with SUCH HIGH PRICES was so unprofessional and so disorganized that we would never recommend it to anyone.

I am fortunate to be able to visit a large number of Manahttan restaurants for lunch and based on a recent trip to Megu, I give it 5 stars across the board based on my experience (lunch). Entering this restaurant and descending into the dining room is like being transported to another world that is soft, seductive and inviting. You are surrounded by tranquility and beautiful materials. The chairs are comfortable, the lighting and noise levels muted and sedate. Service was gracious and helpful. And the food: a $25 prix fixe multi-course meal exquistely prepared and plated, as good to look at asit was to eat. If you went to your local deli that serves "sushi/sashimi" (and they all do today) you would easily spend $10 - 15 to get the equvalent amount served on the Chef's daily selection but of far inferior quality and with no atmosphere whatsoever. Add to that the sublime endamame soup, the red snapper salad and the green tea based desert for a mere $25 and you have to leave happy. A wonderful experience.

Last week, me and my girlfriends went out for lunch to Megu in Tribeca. This was my first time because I hear this restaurant is pretty expensive and I just didn't have a chance to go there. But I keep hearing about this restaurant how wonderful the service, atomosphere and above all great food. And it was great lunch ever. Actually the price was just $25.00 for 3courses + dessert, I believe that they offer the greatest deal in the city. I had Sushi & Sashimi as Entree and each of my friends had Kobe Beef Burger and Makunouchi Bento Box (samplers of their signature dishes). We all loved what we had ordered. Their food is so goooooood!! And their service, our server was very friendly and helped us with menus very kindly. The atomoshpere is great for business lunch as well. It's certainly worth checking out.

I attended one of the best Birthday parties EVER @ the MEGU in Tribeca. I never knew how large their bar & lounge space was... as there was definetly over 100 for my girlfriends party last weekend. I was truly impressed with the passed appetizers & sushi that I tasted for the first time. I was more amazed by my friends bill at the end which was quite reasonable. I thought MEGU was a place that I would never be able to afford ! I definetly will be planning more parties there.

Went for lunch with my girlfriend and had, unfortunately, a waiter who saw us simply as a cash register and not as patrons deserving of service to suit our mood (i.e., he asked repeatedly if we wanted drinks or anything else despite the fact that we clearly didn't want any lavish accoutrements to our simple lunch). The food is good but not on par with the high prices. Comfortable ambience and attractive setting, though one can't help but feel that the restaurant's focus on lavish environs has shifted focus from the quality of service and food. In sum, not entirely disappointing, but there are far better Japanese restaurants in the city.

I went here for restaurant week, and had a disappointing experience. This restaurant is certainly not about customers. The portions are small of course and I was prepared... the food was good to excellent. I had the soft shell crab and the cod. Cod was particularly tender with tasty crunchy crust. The green tea crepe dessert was the highlight of the dinner. The service was what you would expect at a cheap chinatown restaurant since my glass water was empty for 80% of the time and I had to start drinking my husband's water till his became empty. At the end, we gave an 18% tip, and to my horror when I came home, they had charged 20% tip on top of the total amount including tax!!! Absolutely unbelievable... never returning to this restaurant again.
