Would you like smoke and mirrors with your sushi?
By 2nyfoodies on 7/4/2005
If it's decor and food presentation you're after, then this is the place for you. However, if you're an actual foodie, then stick with Nobu. The menu is unbelievably complicated and we got an even more complicated explanation from the waiter. The best items on the menu are the toro sushi and the salad with peanuts. The tasting menu was a total disappointment and highly overpriced. So, go there for a more simple meal and enjoy the surroundings.
One of the best places in NYC

I honestly feel embarressed by the reviews I have read. This restaurant is one of New York finest. The food is OUTSTANDING -yet very, very pricy. Having experienced Ducasse and other top chefts in NY, the experience I had is absolutely excellent. You will NEVER forget the quality of food, the presentation and ambiance. DEFINETELY worth every dime ! Forget NOBU, this is a true experience if you want to impress, celebrate or simply enjoy. The Kobi Chateau Briant (US$180) is a shocker, but once you tasted it....you will never forget, trust me!

I have never felt so taken at a restaurant as I was the other night at Megu. Conveniently the tasting menu which is somewhat affordable, is not offered on weekends. You are forced to look through a menu that is so complex that it should be illegal. The food is so average in somecases below average. The waiter had the nerve to bring items that we did not order becuase he thought we would like it. The bill should be presented with heart medication. For $425 a couple we left partially hungry. I have never felt so foolish to believe the hype.
Disgusted and Insulted

A regular restaurant goer I was digusted with Megu. The food was terrible and grossly overpriced. Portions are tiny. Any local japanese restaurant is beter than this. I give this place 6 months at the most.
Mega Pleasure at Megu
By martin_chamois on 3/26/2005
This TriBeCa mega place has all the warning signs of problems. But from the polite reception, the elegant stairs to the ice Buddha tranquil dinning room, and the gracious service it quickly transform the diner to a Zen like mellow state. The menu is very different, but with the guidance of the staff a meal of quality ingredients at any price range can be developed. Yes there is a $60 Kobe beef dish, but there are also $10-15 enjoyable dishes. Relax, meditate and enjoy a wonderful experience.
Not Worth it....

The menu was 6-11x17 pages, it took us a good 30 mins to decide on what to eat. When the food finally came it was nothing special, that I couldn't find at my neighborhood Japanese Rest.
Money and power can't buy happiness, but it perhaps works wonders for high reviews

Nothing worth mentioning - just wished to add: it's amazing how the majority of the media culinary reviews have absolutely nothing to say about the horrendous food/value and service experiences that the rest of the "real people" who pay with their own hard-earned money seem to share.
scandal and sham
By monkeydance on 1/10/2005
new years eve was sold as a prix fixe dinner reservation for 9:00pm. when i arrived i was forced to wait in line until 11:30. my party paid close to $3000 and never saw any food. the food that was there (sold as sit down dinner but presented as buffet) was brought in from a caterer having nothing to do with megu. this is a complete scandal

Great service and excellent sushi.

I've had dinner at Megu's once. The food was very good but VERY EXPENSIVE. The decor is one of the best in the city. Been there several times for drinks. The bar is very cool. Good music a lot of pretty people. Would recommend to go only for drinks
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
