Best japanese restaurant in an MGM brand hotel?????

I'm heading out to Vegas this weekend and want to dine with my group of buddies in a Japanese restaurant. It has to be under the MGM brand since I get it comped.

From what I have researched my options are:

Bar Masa @ Aria

Shibuya @ MGM Grand

Japonais @ Mirage

Which do you recomend I go with?

Also, what steak house do you recomend? This one doesn't need to be MGM...any steak house works, I want the best bang for my buck.

  1. BARMASA is by far the best in terms of quality -- but it's exceedingly expensive, and to my mind not worth the tab. It lacks a sushi bar, and the wait staff didn't seem very knowledgeable. By comparison, the New York original is even more expensive, but arguably worth it.

    I ate at Shibuya years back, and crossed it off my list because the sushi chefs didn't interact with their customers; everything went through servers. The sushi was pretty good, though.
