To start, it's not cheap. I took my whole fam for the tasting menu and it cost me almost a G. But, at 70 bucks per person, it's only a dollar more than the tasting menu at Sushi Samba and a lot cheaper than others at real high end places in ny. The only reason I felt compelled to write this was from people saying the servings were small. Um, I guess they weren't huge, but when I left I literally had never been so full in my life. Not that I'm complaining, but I was ready to explode. I mean, if you're not full after 7 courses, there's something wrong with you. It felt like more than 7 courses anyway with all the little treats they throw in here and there. Definitely do the KOBE BEEF for the extra 20 bucks. If its not the best beef you've ever had in your life, they you must let me know where to find better! ORDER THE LOBSTER SALAD, but get the dressing on the side, because its kind of strong. I would imaging that if you got anything other than the tasting menu, you'd feel sort of ripped off. That's where the best deal is. I mean, 70 bucks per person for a 3 hour dinner...not too bad. The service was on par with Alaine Ducasse and Daniel. I felt like the staff was there just for me. The seating is unique and very cozy. Gotta see it to believe it. CHECK IT OUT! You won't be disappointed, and neither will your date.

I went to Megu Midtown to sample the wares . . . and was amazed. We were treated to a chef's tasting menu which is always a pleasure to truly experience a restaurant. The food was beyond delicious; subtle flavors and the freshest of ingredients (fresh wasabi was definitely a treat) and the presentation so beautiful you almost felt guilty eating it. We also had two wonderful Sake Flights and the service was as expected lovely. The interior is quite nice and spacious, not a striking as downtown but definitely classy. All in all a hidden jem and a wonderful addition to midtown.

The restaurant is beautiful although too warm in some seating areas. The food is good but doesn't wow you for the prices. Also, the portions are so small, they wouldn't fill a flea. For sure, you'd be paying for the atomosphere, although they allow any dress code from suits to sloppy looking jeans. The latter not being acceptable for a $300+ per couple evening out. Also, they never heard of the phrase, "this one's on the house!"

Pros: beautiful space, tables well spaced, knowledgable and cordial wait staff, no attitude, very good food. Cons: small portions, kitchen is too slow for the main courses (not the appetizers), even when the restaurant is half empty, very expensive (which wouldn't be a problem if the portions were bigger). Conclusion: Overall, a pleasant dining experience worth regular visits.

I went to Megu Midtown with a female friend about a week after they opened. They still were trying to work out bugs in their process and service was s-l-o-w. However, we were given a drink gratis and some nice "compliments of the chef" offerings which were really good and which we really appreciated. Several dishes were really imaginative and we needed directions from the wait staff how to eat them!We loved the taste - and the adventure. I would go back again to see if they have tightened up the ship. P.S. The bar upstairs is strictly to wait for your table. It is NOT a destination.
