Masa - Naples
Mexican comes to MercatoExcellent Mexican Restaurant, well appointed, well staffed and most pleasant!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding.The food was outstanding. Very different Mexican. The restaurant was beautiful and designed contemporary. We will go back again to try some other dishes. Just loved it. The service was superb.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMContemporary Mexican Gem!We were first tempted to visit Masa after seeing the creative, dynamic and engaging outside patio (gorgeous plantation fan chairs with contemporary heaters, beautiful oversized planter pots, and patio nooks) - felt like you were in a rich, contemporary garden. Inside creative touches like shadow boxes, wall of plants and painted murals completed the great decor. With hundreds of tequilas, the first margarita was great! Homemade guacamole was outstanding! Our group had fish tacos, pork tacos and beef tacos - all three were great. And the pork shoulder was fantastic - but too much for one person. We skipped dessert - we were simply too full! We will be back for happy hour with drinks and to sample several of the cold and hot plates.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere and foodWe love Masa, but each time we have had slow service...
They really need to up their game in the slow season if they wanna keep all of us as customers.
The owner's sister restaurants have outstanding service, i don't know why Masa is so slow5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood restaurant. DifferentGood restaurant. Different mexican food. Been here about 5 times and never disappointed.. Everyone I introduce to this place really enjoys it.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMreviewThe food was excelent but pricey, although I would not mind paying high prices for excelent food as opposed to paying a high price for bad food. Our only complaint was the wine pour which was skimpy.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to Mercato...Had out of town guests and decided on Mercato.... wanting something different we picked Masa. Excellent choice! 2 of us had the filet and it was excellent, my husband the pork shoulder which was delicious! This was our 2nd visit and we will come again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun EveningOff to the movies then walked across the street to dinner.

We all ordered different dishes and everyone was extremely pleased. One member in our party inquired about which items on the menu were gluten free and our waitress knew right away. We ordered the hanger steak, snapper, pork and the mahi mahi special along with the guacamole appetizer. Every dish had a wonderful blend of spices. Would definitely go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is terrific and theThe food is terrific and the servers are helpful and friendly.

He ordered the taco trio, which he disliked, and the waitress suggested the enchilada which was better buy still a disappointment. He loves Mexican food , but felt this was bland and tasteless.

Food is tasty. Wait staff explain everything. Its newness makes it a hot spot, but the
long run will tell the tale.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in North NaplesYou enter Masa with authentic Mexican murals, the smiling moon, living wall, colorful Murano glass fixtures, a real lounge in the center of the room. The bar is dramatic with hundreds of tequilas, sexy bartenders, great music. And the evening gets even better when you start tasting the hand crafted margaritas, the hand mashed to order quacamole with warm chips and chopped vegetables. The ceviches, fish specials, tacos, pork, all very good. Chef Mike pays special attention to desserts also. The Diabolita Margarita is a standout and so is the cucumber. The wine list is great too with wonderful selections that pair well with Mike's food.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ambiance, excellent waitGood ambiance, excellent wait staff.

The Mexican food -while not my favourite cuisine was well described , prepared and presented. The Manager Irena is omnipresent and the staff very professional. Located in Mercato it is a good and fun place for a night out. The comfortable seating in the center of the restaurant is a comfortable place to enjoy a drink before going to your table.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNot Taco Bell!What an improvement since their soft opening! Way to go Masa! Our server, Ron, was very fun, informative and attentive. He took care of a large group next to us and still did a great job with our little table. We shared ceviche of the day, guacamole and the three taco plate. Everything was really good and came out at the correct temperature. I had the spicy margarita and my friend had the blood orange margarita. Again, both were excellent. The place is a bit pricy and very noisy. Luckily, we were tucked in the back corner so somewhat protected from the cacophony. If you want to have a conversation during dinner, ask to sit outside or in that back corner, preferably behind the curtain!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good and theFood was very good and the wait staff was excellent. I cannot comment on the noise level because we ate outside.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
