Masa Southwest Bar and Grill
A really good local restaurantMasa is definitely one of the best restaurants in the Woburn/Winchester area. The southwestern twist bumps a good menu up to a great one, and the preparation and service is well-executed. Add to that a well-stocked bar, decent wine list and reasonable pricing, and you have a restaurant that punches well above its weight for its location.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a party of 5 for Mother'sWe had a party of 5 for Mother's Day and it was perfect! We sat near the open kitchen and actually interacted with Chef Jose! He was so professional during an incredibly busy evening and even found the time to joke with us. After dinner he sent over two desserts (which were so delicious!) and then stopped by to talk with us! It made our already excellent night even better! We LOVE Masa!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in the suburbsI am continually impressed by the consistent high quality that Masa turns out. I have eaten lunch and dinner there repeatedly over the past five years and have never been disappointed. The service is always impeccable, the food is always inventive and excellent, and they portions are sized so that you walk away satisfied but not bloated. And all this in Woburn. If I am not going in to Boston or Cambridge, this is my pick for a great dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second time here.This is my second time here. I'm from Dallas and I discovered this little gem on yelp looking for brunch in Bedford area. The food is very tasty. Try the pancakes they are terrific and the empanadas are also great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DiningWe have been to Masa numerous times. The food and service have always been outstanding.

She was personable, courteous, and charming. (she even commented on my eyeglasses). She took the time to answer some menu questions, offered recommendations, was quick to make sure that we liked all of our courses and was very pleasant to be around.
Thanks to Angela (and the food) for making my birthday night a memorable one.
Angela is a gem and deserves a raise.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe actually went to Mesa inWe actually went to Mesa in Boston. Please be careful when booking this restaurant chain on Open Table, it can be confusing which location you are actually booking. The Boston location was very accommodating. The food was very good. I'd go back.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood selection of dishes thatGood selection of dishes that are unique and presented artfully on large plates. I had the pork loin. It came with a funky looking pear shaped pie that I think had potato with a meat filling. Overall the dish tasted good, but it didn't exceed my expectations, because the sauce could have been spicier and the meat less dry and more flavorful. My friends had the sea bass. It looked good, but they complained that the fish was kind of rubbery. As a desert I had the flan, which was not as good as flan I know from Mexico because it was too dense. My friends had the chocolate browny tamales - delicious! Wait service was very friendly but a bit slow (somewhat understaffed). Took a while to get appetizers and my glass of beer stood empty too long.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLighting dim for my taste.Lighting dim for my taste.
