The Scene
Every inch of the original Megu (there's a second one in midtown) is meticulously designed in a mix of modern and antique motifs. Porcelain rice-bowl columns teeter high above the auditorium-sized dining area, and a…

    Do not waste your time and money at this place. The wait staff is incredibly slow, inexperienced and rude. I came with a large party that was seated rather fast. However, it took over an hour for our food to arrive with the waiter… Read more »

    I was actually shocked by the entire experience. We had a reservation and when we arrived, we were seated right away by the hostess. However, the server disappeared after taking our order and we had to flag down random servers to check on… Read more »

    Our waiter Susan took our order and disappeared for the rest of the night. We were served the wrong dish and when we told the staff, they said they will "check on it" with no result. We never got our appetizer until the very end - one… Read more »

    The decor was perfectly inviting. The food was flavorful. I especially liked the choices for appetizers, entrees, and sakes. However, desserts seemed like an afterthought as it appears they outsource their desserts. The service was… Read more »

    Went last night for Restaurant Week. By far the Biggest dissapointment in a restaurant ever. What didn't go wrong. Rerservations at 9.15pm, didn't get seated till around 9.45 or so. Then we got seated at a table that didn't fit our party… Read more »

    Honestly, I should have been warned by the mixed reviews here. It was laughably bad. Up until our sushi course, everything was simply 'ok.' Not 'great' or 'good' - just 'ok', which in itself is disappointing given the prices. When the… Read more »

    We were surprised by the set up, from the lounge area upstairs to the big buddah down stairs. Then to top it off the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the meats, especially the (I can't remember the name now) cut from the cow thats… Read more »

    I went to Megu yesterday and first of all sat down at the bar and had a drink. I had the cocktail called Blessing which was some Vodka, pomegranate juice and strawberrys. Very refreshing and good. We waited quite a while although we had… Read more »

    The food was very good, but it won't bloww you away unless you've never been to one of the finer Japanese fusion or sushi restaurants in NYC. We ordered crispy tofu, salmon tartare, grilled lamp chops, and kobe steak carpacchio. The tofy… Read more »

    I went to Megu for the first time this weekend and it was everything I expected and more. The interior is beautiful, the food is amazing and everyone there is so friendly and attentive. The Rikyu Steak is to die for. Read more »

    I had heard much about Megu and decided to try it. The sashimi was devine, especially the salmon, which melted in my mouth. The sushi, came with miso soup, was good, but nothing exceptional. The steak on the hot stone was a bit tough. … Read more »

    Went to Megu with friends last night and was blown away from the start. We all entered in on a special "chefs tasting menu" and our waiter took over from there from Kobe steak to sushi and awesome desserts . The atmosphere is lovely in… Read more »

    The wait staff was very pleasant, but I was there for the food. Unfortunately, it was disappointing. When we first walked into the dining area, we were greeted with a loud “…hey!” I didn’t think much of it, but throughout the evening,… Read more »
