Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful sushi but the servers attitude was less than stellar. If she doesn't want to be a server, she should be one. Her attitude was poor. I rarely tip less than 20% but when service is poor and the server acts bothered or disinterested to work, maybe she should look for a different career. While I would highly recommend the food, I would give warning to anyone that I refer that you may have unfortunate service. We choose BarMasa based on a reference and to celebrate a birthday as a couple....we walked away wondering why the service was so poor."

  • "Joined a friend for dinner. The food was good and service was great but portions are extremely small for the price they charge. There was barely anyone in the restaurant in a week where there was 150,000 people in Vegas for a conference. We waited in line to get in at every restaurant in town this week except this one. Probably 20 people in this restaurant while we were there. That says it all."

  • "My second visit. Both times were excellent. The seafood is the freshest and prepared so it is the star of the show. Ate at the bar this time as I was in early. The bartenders made great recommendations for food and Saki selections. Great experience."

  • "I consider myself somewhat of a foodie so I was hoping the bad reviews I read were from people just not wanting to spend a lot of money for small portions of food, but sadly I was wrong. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't amazing. The worst part of all was the service. When I am spending hundreds of dollars on a meal I expect more than "what would you like to drink" and "are you ready to order?" That was it. No suggestions, no description, nothing. Definitely not the service one expects at that caliber of restaurant. The desert was also very disappointing and I'm not sure I've ever been disappointed by dessert! Maybe the waiter we had was an anomaly, but if not I would not recommend eating here."

  • "Big surprise for too much Much expensive verse service & quality of food is bad, unclear & insane food list & price.... So mad after business meeting with salty food, poor services, too much expensive everything.... due to Japanese food??? how about wines? also Very expensive with limited selections for CA, its not from Japan, why so expensive?? comparing other good restaurant?? Too bad!"

  • "The food is excellent, also the service, but the restaurant is in an atrium, thus the environment isn't very cosy. I somehow dislike being in an open space, feels cold, uninviting, Food is fusion, if you are more looking for traditional Japanese, you'd be disappointed. Otherwise, the food is excellent, however, skip the beef carpaccio, as it is over sauced and kills the real flavor."

  • "We ate here on New Years Eve weekend, and had a nice meal. All of the food was very good, but quite pricey. The sushi was good, but small, with high quality fish and nice presentations. The grilled octopus was in a delicious sauce, but if it had 1oz of octopus total, it was a lot. The oysters were small, but presented nicely and quite fresh. The sake Semolier was excellent and made an outstanding recommendation to complement our food. All in all, a nice place with great food, but don't come hungry and don't expect a bargain."

  • "This is such a waste of money . I am from New York and I have dined at some of the best sushi restaurants in my town. This place here over charges for tiny portions of food . The food here is average. Service was very slow also."

  • "For a highly rated sushi restaurant I found the food no better than the average strip center sushi joint. The space was very industrial looking and not upscale at all. With all the great restaurants in Vegas I would say you could do better"

  • "While the food quality is excellent, we had slow, spotty service in this cold, industrial space that doesn't lend itself to a fine-dining experience. Although the waiter and manager apologized several times for extremely slow service, after all that the waiter forgot a cup of chamomile tea we ordered after the meal. There are many better Japanese dining experiences in Vegas."

  • "The service was good and the food was very good but I found myself hungry less than 2 hours later after spending $550. That was for four of us. That ain't right! A belly should be full and satisfied after that kind of cash. My belly just wanted a slice of pizza."

  • "Sushi was top notch. Seriously, some of the best sushi in town. I don't do rolls, just nigiri, and Bar Masa is really good at that. Also had some of the sukiyaki and they say the foundation of and good Japsnese restaurant is their broth - well their broth was spectacular. Also, some great Japanese beers."

  • "We really enjoyed this Restaurant. The sushi was so good with many options. If you're not a big sushi lover they offer Hibachi and Udon Noodle soups also. The restaurant is located in the Aria Hotel and we did not smell any smoke from the casino, very pleasant. I recommend the blue fin tuna, so buttery and melts in your mouth. The next time I'm in Vegas I will make reservations to eat here again!!!"

  • "I did not give a food review as we did not get our chefs selection menu. It took 1 hour to get 2 small dishes. They had no explanation. The server was mortified. The manager was no help what so ever. Our reservation was at 7:30. Left at 8:30 starving. It sucked."

  • "If your looking for authentic, clean sushi and fish look no farther. Portions are small....but amazingly you will leave satisfied. Incredible Cevechi, the freshest fish and a truly incredible menu for serious sushi and japanese style seafood lovers. A true foodies delight."

  • "Food was amazing. Hamachi sashimi was the best I've eaten anywhere. Calamari, sea bass, and tatami cilantro cucumber dish were unbelievable. Excellent and innovative food with seasoning that brings out the natural flavors. One issue is that they stopped serving coffee after 11:30. Expensive but well worth the price."

  • "Because we are adventurous eaters, we asked our waitress to provide us with a random tasting menu so that every course could be a surprise. It was fantastic. Every course was more delicious than the last. My friend got the liquor pairings and got to experience wines, sakes and even Japanese beer! The sommelier was phenomenal. So knowledgeable and well spoken, we felt like the only diners in the restaurant. And our waitress Bonnie was adorable - so friendly, so attentive, and just plain fun. It was a fantastic girls night out. Definitely one of the best meals we've ever had, anywhere."

  • "Although Aria is among the top luxury casino hotels in Vegas, and this restaurant has already established its reputation for fine Japanese food, we were surprised at the absolute freshness of everything we ordered. The quality of our sushi was excellent and the braised short ribs were superb: moist and tender, a huge portion served for $28 was a bargain. Wide assortment of sake in varying price ranges. We will certainly eat here again."

  • "Food tasted great and the menu was very impressive. I would love to try many other items. Odds are I won't because the competition is so fierce in Vegas. The food delivery was outrageously slow. Half capacity restaurant on a high volume night - July 4 - and they could barely keep pace. The waiter was very polite and eager to please. I really enjoyed the signature tuna and fried potatoes. The victoria beef sukiyaki noodles were delicious. Beautiful place and worth a try."
