Food – It was ok. Mediocre at best. Did the 5-course Prix Fixe for $95. Salad, Hot Appetizer, Sushi, not impressive nor memorable. Sushi was not fresh. Entree (Steak flambed in Hennessy) was good but needed a side. Dessert was probably my favorite thing, banana cake. Portion was ok. Price, not so much.

Service – Attentive. Good table-side service. Friendly. but lacked explanation of dishes.

Atmosphere – the place is huge, uber trendy but quieter than one would think. But possibly because when we came, the weather was bad so there was barely anyone there.

All in all, the food didn’t live up to the hype but I’m glad I went cuz I got to try it.

Hospitality runs high in this ultra chic Japanese restaurant where guests by are greeted [in Japanese] by the entire wait staff after being led through labyrinth of staircases and brought into main dining room, which lays is tucked away like a secret cavern behind a huge wall of an abstract Japanese flag. While the rumble of about 50 servers all yelling “Welcome” at the same moment sounds more like a rousing “YAY!”,it will without a doubt, simultaneously make you feel uplifted and aware of every new guest that enters the dining room during your meal. The food heavenly and every bite goes down like butter. Don’t miss the Crepe Cake for dessert and be sure to check out the lantern adorned bathrooms, where the smell of fresh eucalyptus is pumped though the vents. Be sure to bring your entire bank account to cover the bill or at least be willing to give up your first born…

Food Heaven in Tribeca

Megu in Tribeca is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan. The decor is stunning (it would make any out of towner feel like they have ‘arrived’) and the food is impressive.

When you walk into the main dining room, you are greeted by a beautiful buddha – every last detail at this restaurant has been through through.

I went with my boyfriend and we started with the crispy asparagus. The food preentation was something out of a magazine – the jumbo asparagus arrived on a beautiful wooden block.

Next we had the silver cod – I have never tasted cod this good! We also ordered the signature kobe beef on hot rocks – talk about stimulating all of your senses – the smell, taste, texture and presentation were worth the price.

While dinner at Megu isn’t cheap, it can be afordable if you limit the number of drinks you order – drinks cost between $15-20.

Silver Cod

The best cod I have had in my life.

I came here for restaurant week and had a great experience. The toro sushi was one of the best i’ve had, kobe beef was nice and tender, and the soft shell crab appetizer was delicious. Both me and my date had a enjoyable experience. The service was also great, they never let our glass of water go low.

Best first American meal in a while!

Loved the whole experience of descending into the dining area, the perfunctory hailing, and beautiful, slightly amazing ice sculpture to gaze at. The menu was perfect – so many choices. Japanese fusion dessert was still the unique reward of the night.

the decor/ambiance is nice… portions are not that big, but what do u expect from a japanese restaurant. the one in tribeca is really nice. good for big groups / special occasions.

the waitors actually help you order, so if you look at the menu and don’t know what you want … your waitor will take care of you.

Fabulous decor. Great sushi (fabulous toro and super white tuna). The table-side wasabi root grating is fun and extremely powerful so go easy. Pretty intimate so good if you are on a date.

There is another Megu near the UN. Anyway, I went to the one downtown. The atmosphere and the physical attractiveness of the ppl there was just incredible. The food was highly presentable. Sadly, the price was incredibly presentable too. Fortunately, I was not the one paying for that meal.

Tips
  • The wine list includes $40-$60 reislings, Gruner Veltliners and gewurtztraminers, which pair well with the food. Don't overlook the exhaustive sake and sochu list.
  • The 75-seat upstairs bar, wallpapered with bolts of antique kimono fabrics is more serene. Three large lounge tables overlook the scene below, and there's a private room for parties.
