    I went to Megu in January and it was a joke, portions so small that the waitstaff suggested you order an extra entree to share among 2 people. Artisinal was OK and have not been to CH. Would suggest you look for some other choices. I am going to Bar at Modern Room and Perry Street for dinner this week.

      We went to Artisanal, last year, as invitees While I'm not a fan of RW dinner in general, I thought that Artisanal was a decent value for the money, in spite of some spotty service,

        Ate at Megu for RW last week. I made the reservations almost one month ago, and I was really excited about eating there for the first time. it probably would have been better to just have a drink at the bar...the portions were miniscule and the service VERY rushed.
        I had tempura appetizer (small piece of soft shell crab), bass (excellent) and dessert was a green tea layered cake...
        my date and i ordered 1 cocktail each, but were still starving after the 3 coures. we ordered an extra roll, and when all was said and done the bill came to 140 with tax and tip. i realize that probably is not much for a dinner for 2 at megu...but i dont think it was worth it...
        im eating at petrossian tonite, hopefully that will be better....

          I agree with G3B. You would be better off visiting other restaurants if you're looking for a place to make a RW reservation. Artisinal has the same prix-fixe throughout the year anyway.

            Just went to Artisanal tonight. Don't bother. Overcrowded restaurant and lackluster food. The best parts were the cheese and cheesecake. Service was sluggish. A complete review will be forthcoming - when i finish off my RW experience with Jo Jo tomorrow night.

              Artisanal has a fixed 35 dollar menu year round for dinner - and it is fine but keep looking. There are far better choices if you are "taking advantage" of this to get a whole meal for what a dinner would normall cost at a place. Not a huge fan of RW because I always feel limited and end up just ordering off the menu anyway.
