Paying $100 per person for dinner, I would expect the food to be at least decent. However it was definitely not the case at Megu. We went there on a Sunday night and the place was quite empty. We ordered kobe beef from the restaurant week

Pros: Ambience

Cons: Everything else

Although you will more than likely spend $50 a person minimum (Dinner) - There is a 3 course Omakase for $55 per person.

Regardless the ingredients throughout the menu are top notch - The sushi is stellar and the interior of the restaurant is something to behold.

Highly recommended

I was pretty impressed with both the food and the service at the Megu. The menu is very interesting and the presentation of the food was beautiful. The prices are on the high side, but I think the setting and service can justify the price.
