Diner Reviews
  • "Great food!!! Great service!!! This is an absolute gem and should not be missed!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Mas has been open only about 9 months but that was sufficient to give birth to what may well be Albuquerque's finest restaurant experience. Chef James Caruso never seems to disappoint with his extraordinary tapas, each with its own distinctive taste. The ambiance is elegant with the feel of a swank NYC restaurant. The service is impeccable--if you get either Eric or Justin, you'll be treated like royalty. The bar serves up drinks named after the famous who were historically connected to the Hotel Andaluz that have as much character as their namesakes. But the star is the food, and you will not be disappointed. My last meal was one of the best I've had in any restaurant."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I have long loved La Boca in Santa Fe. I was really hoping that Mas was going to be the same experience since it's the same chef. It wasn't. Maybe they had a new staff? Maybe they still have not come together as a team? Although we had reservations, we stood at the hostess booth far too long before anyone would recognize us. Our waiter was lethargic and non-attentive, as was most of the staff. We ordered sparkling water... They were OUT. We ordered a bottle of wine... They were OUT. It took them 15 minutes to tell us they were OUT. I ordered a glass of wine. After 15 minutes I had to flag the waiter down by waving my arms. The 3rd time he walked by he finally noticed me. Then I finally got my wine. The rest of the night went about the same."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Only 2 waiters served the entire restaurant so don't expect expedient service. The amounts on each tapas are not well-described in the menu. For example the lamb chops were 2 tiny portions for $16 that could possibly be split by 2 people but not more. The patatas bravas were the most substantial dish fit to be shared by more than 2 people. To fill up however requires that many tapas be ordered so expect to fork out about $50 per person if you hope to leave with a full belly. Don't even bother with dessert. Other than the notable after dinner drinks the 3 items on the menu leave a lot to be desired. There is a lot of potential with a tapas restaurant. I'd rather drive to Santa Fe's El Farol."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Wanted to try the menu before I started my new job cooking in their kitchen. The flavor combinations are nothing short of amazing! This was my first tapas experience and I look forward to many, many more!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Food was excellent and service even better. Only downside was they kept moving tables around for a party next to us which was annoying."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Enjoyable evening, good food and good service. Dinner area was a little noisy. Excellent Paella"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed the blood orange sangria. The two special tapas were amazing. The first was tomatoes, mozarella, grilled artichoke hearts, and jamon serrano. The second was lamb chops with tzaziki and harissa. We also enjoyed the sopa mariscada and the paella. The servers were very attentive."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "When we went before, our waiter pretty much abandoned us after a while. This time we had an attentive waiter. The food is wonderful, the prices not so much, the portions small, even for tapas. The wine was great but pricy."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food here is the best, most creative and delicious I have had anywhere in a long time! If this were the only restaurant in town, I'd be happy with the wonderful variety of tapas and a great wine list highlighting Spanish wines as well as others from around the world. My husband and I made a meal of a variety of tapas on this very busy evening. While the staff were running their legs off, the service was efficient , though not personal. I imagine this is a very popular place with few slow paced evenings. All in all, it was a good experience which I hope to repeat again and again. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Nice atmosphere. Tapas were good although small portions. The entrees looked enticing but the paella was bland, not very spicy or interesting. Wine menu was okay but nothing great. Service was a bit slow and the waiter was not as informed about food as we would have liked."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We went on Open Table as usual to make our reservations and were unable to book for 7:00 or 7:30, no availability. So we took a 6:30 res and hustled our buns to get there. Imagine our surprise when we found the restaurant almost empty! It was a Sunday night so not surprised it was a little slow. We've enjoyed tapas eating style in Spain many times and Mas... is great. Start with a couple of small plates and add more if you are still hungary. All four dishes we had were delicious."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Perfect downtown dinner destination. The food was excellent. The service superb. We were not rushed and it was a pleasure to enjoy our surroundings, share great company and enjoy all that MAS Tapas y Vino had to offer. We will be back!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We were seated outside, which was wonderful. The food was excellent - but somewhat limited in selection compared with other brunch buffets we have enjoyed. Especially limited was dessert - no chocolate! The wait was very long for an omelette and there was no cold seafood (smoked fish, shrimp, etc) but the antipasto was very good. It was expensive, and it was not clear that only the first mimosa was included. All in all, a lovely brunch experience."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food and atmosphere were excellent. Server was OK but forgot the appetizers."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We just did a salad and tapas. This is not just any tapas place---the selections are inventive and excellent. The chef creates interesting combinations of flavors that work very well: for example, try the skirt steak with caramel. We also had a broiled artichoke wirh feta and orange flavoring plate that was very good. The wine list is very good, with good range that made it fun to think about what to pair with the food . Service was attentive, helpful but not intrusive. I really hope this place does well---ABQ is not known for its ability to sustain good restaurants."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Más had outstanding food and I would definitely visit again. I suggest you visit too. It is evident why the chef was a James Beard finalist more than once."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "As mentioned in previous reviews, downtown is a ghost town after dark. The one bright spot is this amazing Spanish Tapas and Wine place. We were four of us and we basically shared every tapas on the menu. Everything was incredible but the huge standouts were the shrimp and the steak with salted caramel sauce (weird but addicting). If your stuck downtown make sure you visit this place."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Great service and excellent food. Our server took wonderful care of us. The pace was perfect."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Food was excellent but service VERY slow. We waited 30 minutes between courses"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "First time dining here; although it was good and an enjoyable dining experience, but we won't be rushing back. My guest and I were surprised and disappointed that no wine flights were available, and wine selection was rather limited. The bread, artichoke tapas, papas, and salads were excellent. The paella was much too spicy overwhelmed by the chorizo, and the steak was drizzled with what appeared to be bottled Worcestershire sauce. The dessert menu was also very limited. I miss Cosmo Tapas! La Boca will now be our choice for tapas, unfortunately it's in Santa Fe."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "great atmosphere terrific wine and service. The food was full of flavor and creative."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Prepare to be surprised, and pleasantly so, by the dishes served here. Someone in that kitchen is dreaming up unexpected flourishes, sauces, and sides for seemingly every selection. Try the mezze platter for starters. I had the salmon, which was sauced and accompanied with obvious care and expertise. A table-mate loved the paella. This has become a must-visit restaurant for me when visiting Albuquerque."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "It was fun to go with a group since it meant we got to try a large portion of the tapas menu. Can't think of anything we disliked. The wine was also yummy, not to mention the fig bread pudding."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I've given Mas three chances and I'll not go there again. Poor service. Nothing special about the food. No reason to go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We booked dinner the night before Valentine's Day. Apparently, others had the same idea, as the restaurant was busy. With the exception of the hostess station, the restaurant was understaffed and seemed unprepared for the number of customers. It took twenty minutes for a waiter to take our order. He completely forgot the bottle of wine we ordered and substituted a different tapa for one that we requested. On the plus side, the food was quite good."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I HAVE REVIEWED MAS BEFORE, BUT IN THE LIGHT OF STILL ANOTHER EXTRAORDINARY DINING EXPERIENCE, I'M HAPPY TO DO SO AGAIN. THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME I'VE DINED THERE AND EACH TIME HAS BEEN A DELIGHT. CHEF JAMES CARUSO CONSTANTLY CREATES NEW DISHES THAT ADD TO AN ALREADY SUPERLATIVE DINING EXPERIENCE. I ORDERED SEVEN TAPAS TO SHARE WITH MY TWO GUESTS AND EACH HAD ITS OWN SURPRISING PALATE PLEASING SURPRISE. THE SALMON APPETIZERS ON CRISP WONTONS IS ALWAYS A FAVORITE, BUT THE ADDITION OF CRAB-FILLED PEPPERS IN AN AMAZING CREAMY SAUCE AND THE NEW PREPARATION FOR GAMBAS IN A PEPPERY SAUCE ADDED TO THE SEAFOOD DELIGHTS. AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT TO A SUCCESSFUL DINING EXPERIENCE IS A GOOD WAITER--I CANNOT IMAGINE A BETTER ONE THAT ERIC. SUPERB!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "After all the press I was expecting another excellent restaurant. Unfortunately, it was not to be so. My friends, spouse and I were rather disappointed because the service was not consistent nor attentive. After noticing we were one menu short, the person that seated us did not return with another as promised. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list but didn't check back with us as often as we thought he should have. As a result, our evening was quite short and further sales were lost. The food was lukewarm and not particularly notable. Tapas servings are noticeably small and quite expensive for what you get. All things considered I don't think I'll return to try something else."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This restaurant serves tapas as well as entrees. I only had the tapas, but they were quite well executed. While not particularly inventive and a bit over-priced, it is a good value and attractive atmosphere for a hotel restaurant. The bar in the lobby has excellent atmosphere as well, with private cubby rooms that can be reserved for small parties. There is often a small band which really adds to the scene."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "food was bad. paella with no hint of saffron. cesear with only hints of dressing no cheese or crouton. Slow slow slow wait for bad food."

  • "I took my "significant other" to MAS for his birthday, while staying overnight at Hotel Andaluz. Thrilled to discover Chef Caruso owns MAS!. Had to cancel prior night's table at La Boca and my BF was so disappointed..Loved MAS! Great food! Great Surf & Turf special! Wonderful servers (Krystal was incredible). Returned for breakfast next am and had unbelievably fabuluous French Toast. Otto was awesome. Servers know the menu, are able to answer any questions and also to suggest wine pairings. Will definitely return! ."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Went out for my Birthday with the girls for wine and tapas. Wasn't disappointed. Excellent wait staff attended to our every request. Did not feel rushed. We would only be able to come on special occasions, as the tapa prices were just a little high for regular after work visits. It was a very nice evening."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Wonderful to see that there were plenty of meat-free tapas options in keeping with the hotel's environmentally friendly theme. Given that the tapas were half price at happy hour, we ordered too much food and then managed to eat it all anyway because everything was delicious. I will happily return for happy hour because we were able to have a drink and enough tapas to constitute dinner for under $20 per person. Our server was professional, though it is easy to be forgotten when you are out of sight in the casbahs and we had to flag her down since timing was an issue. It pleased me to see that my friends were even commenting on "how pretty" the casbahs were, so I was glad to have chosen Mas for our reunion happy hour."

Staff also made good wine pairing recommendations. Wonderful variety and great flavors. cant wait to go back again."

  • "great ambience. beautiful lobby with live music. friendly positive waitstaff. the grilled artichoke and eggplant tapas were excellent. the shrimp and calamari tapas were not good, however, and the mediterranean soup was inedible. the waiter kindly offered to remove that from our tab. hopefully things will get better."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We ordered salad and several tapas so I want to go back for an entree next time. They had a problem with their credit card system that night but my party came up with the cash to check out. There are some bugs to work out but I have confidence they can do it."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "As a whole, we did not like this restaurant. We went on NYE, so we knew we were being adventurous in terms of service., etc. and we were fine with that. But, we just simply did not enjoy the food and food pairings. We thought the food was not that great all around and we probably had about six different dishes. We will not be recommending or going back."

  • "Albuquerque is blessed to now have a restaurant, "Mas," under the direction of a James Beard finalist Chef James Caruso. Before we would have to travel to Santa Fe to taste his wonderful tapas and entrees at La Boca or Taverna. Caruso has truly brought Spain to New Mexico in his presentation of tapas beautifully prepared. Don't miss his grilled artichokes, his perfect salmon taco canapes, his patatas bravas, his marvelous grilled eggplant. Whether you go for a full dinner or simply drinks and tapas, it is extraordinary. The upscale dining room has a New York City feel and is located in the historic Hotel Alvarez. My favorite waiter there is Eric who knows how to properly space the serving of a large number of tapas. Bravo, Caruso!"
