Diner Reviews
  • "Frankly, really average for the pricing, and did not even get any OpenTable dining points to boot. There are just too many good restaurants in the Market-Mission area to expect anyone besides Westin Hotel guests to eat here."

  • "Surprisingly tasty food for a hotel restaurant. Had heard a lot about this place and finally got around to trying it. Not a huge selection, but I was able to find something I liked and it turned out to taste really great =)"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I attended MaSo last night with friends (one of my friends was staying at the Westin and I thought I might as well try it. and was very happy that it was such inviting place with fabulous food for a light palate or a foodie's heart! I had the buttermilk fried chicken and since my mom was a southerner, she would have wept tears of joy! That along with a wonderful house cab, appetizers and the chocolate cake with chocolate almond ice cream AND warm chocolate sauce - are you all trying to hurt me? Fabulous and my friends had a wonderful time too. A little noisy because there was a group meeting there behind us, but it was nice to have such a group who were enjoying as much as we were. Please keep up the good work!"

  • "I dined at many better (and price comparable) restaurants in San Fran and was disappointed when I arrived to learn this was a hotel restaurant. Very dead and service was very slow. However, our mains were delicious and they accommodated for my friends gluten free needs."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I attended a birthday lunch with several colleagues this week, and the lunch was spectacular! The Meat Loaf, Pumpkin Pasta/Skirt Steak, Salmon, Pumpkin Squash Soup, and Crabcakes....I give up, the ENTIRE menu is delish and each dish presentable and tastefully prepared, even the BREAD, which is warm, delicious and you definitely want to enjoy that experience! I highly recommend MaSo for a business meal, event, or meal with friends and family; there is a place for everyone to be accommodated. Bon Appétit"

  • "Was pleasantly surprised! Food was really good and the service was excellent. We'll be back! Reasonably priced for a hotel restaurant."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "I decided to try Maso for lunch with a colleague because it is fairly near the office. We were underwhelmed. The "ceviche" (which is really more of a tartare) was good. We wanted to order the fried chilcken salad (having read good things about the fried chicken) but they had run out. (Huh? It was 1:00 and the place was not busy.) So I ordered the blackened flounder and my colleague ordered the meatloaf. The flounder was too spicy, too greasy and whatever flavor the fish might have had was clobbered by the sauce. (The mashed potatoes were good, though.) My colleague picked at her meatloaf before finally admitting it wasn't good. Service was only OK -- refilling the ice tea would have been welcome. So, I won't be back."

  • "The service was terrible, and the food was not much better. Great concepts behind it all, but terrible execution. I can't think of a restaurant in SF I'd rather avoid."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Loud crowd in bar. Food order was incorrect. Tables not cleared. Average food at gourmet prices. It's just a loud bar with food."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The food was totally delicious and the service was great! :-)"
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Elevated southern cuisine without an elevated price point Huge potions Ambience is slightly upscale without being stuffy Only downfall is the waitstaff - they are obviously servers not accustomed to working in a restaurant environment"
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "My chef Partner always works on Christmas Day, and his schedule makes reservation options limited. Of course, Open Table had several places to choose from (thankfully!) but we were so delighted to find this gem so close to our hotel. And completely last minute. Our table was ready a little early and we were seated immediately. Our server was so helpful in choosing from the delicious choices offered. A fantastic meal in a beautiful setting, combined with über-friendly staff, made this Holiday meal an outing to remember. Many thanks!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The fried chicken is to die for. Being Christmas day, they had a special holiday turkey meal which was a huge portion of excellent food. The (male) host was especially welcoming and warm. Nice table spacing."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Kind of a shame - wait staff was quick and attentive, portions were ample, but the good was just plain average. There was a genuine effort at better food, but no delivery ."

  • "Every year about 20,000 geoscientists descend on Moscone for a geek feast. Many of us are also foodies. This was my first time at MaSo's and I'm very enthused to have discovered my new favorite place to eat 'n meet. I had the sugar pie pumpkin soup and the kale and arugula salad and swooned with delight. The soup came in it's own pitcher and was added to the little mound of purple barley and micro sprouts, keeping it hot until served. The salad had a just-right combination of pistachios and dates laced with a rich balsamic. The wait staff's attentiveness and the quick turn-around after we placed our order was noted and appreciated by our whole party. It helped us focus on our meeting instead of lunch logistics. I like Maso!!"
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Food is very good, but service was sub par on Thanksgiving. The pre fix menu was good value for the price. Just wish the gratuity had not been included as our service was lacking in many ways"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The truffle fries and burger are delicious! The diver scallop entree is wonderful as well. The service was extremely attentive, friendly and professional."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "Right near Moscone so the bar is buzzing with conference attendees. That's not a bad thing, just very distinctive atmosphere."
    Dined on 9/25/2013
  • "Our waiter was so kind and patient. Was very helpful to our party who had special food needs. Thanks for a great evening!"
    Dined on 8/16/2013
  • "I took the wife to this place mainly because I heard so much about it. What I noticed, was the lack of people. Food, well, it was okay???? We had the $15. crabcake. Very nice, but not hot and lacked flavor. Very beautiful how it was presented on the plate. For dinner, I ordered the $38. BBQ Rib Eye. Well, thought it was barbequed. I might of had been grilled. They put bbq sauce on the steak which was very under cooked. I asked between pink and red. It came out purple. I was skeptic about taking it back. I've heard so may nightmare stories of what coks do with the food before it come back to your plate. I took it home and nuked it. The bread they brought was awesome. We spent $113. on us. I want my money back."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "The food and coffee were very good, but the prices were a bit astronomical. Thankfully this was for a work meeting with my mentor, because I would have passed out seeing the bill if I had to pay for it. I had the fish tacos, and the cod they used was absolutely fantastic. Very meaty, nice beer-style batter that wasn't too much, great fresh cabbage and other toppings, yummy pickled carrots on the side. My colleague had the baby crab burgers, which I had a bite of, and they were also very good. We had coffee and the passion fruit shortcake for dessert - not sure where the cake part was, as it seemed more like a pudding kind of thing. Also delicious, and the coffee came with cute little chocolate swizzle sticks. Yum!"
    Dined on 6/14/2013
  • "MaSo seems quite hidden. The restaurant smelled of new renovations. The food was all right. The service was okay. Nothing extraordinary. The restaurant itself is spacious and has potential to offer fabulous fine dining but that didn't seem to be the case."
    Dined on 6/10/2013
  • "Overall the food & service were basic-- nothing outstanding."
    Dined on 1/16/2013
  • "The restaurant did not accomodate our reservation when we arrived!"
    Dined on 8/29/2012
  • "My go-to place for a business lunch. Good food, good services, and quiet enough to hold a conversation."
    Dined on 3/22/2012
  • "Dissapointing - expensive and not worth it. Long waits between courses, small portions of very odd combinations (what were they thinking in the kitchen?) and too noisy."
    Dined on 10/29/2011
  • "I was here having lunch to close the deal on a work event I was booking. I always have a cheeseburger for lunch at places I've never tried. Good burger = Probably good everything else. Burger was great. Booked the event there. The only complaint from attendees was that wine wasn't poured fast enough.... But yeah... They probably drink really fast!"
    Dined on 10/27/2010
  • "I am reviewing this several months after the dinner and while I know we all enjoyed our meals (I went with a group of about 10), I cannot say there is anything particularly memorable about the dinner from this distance. I do know that we had pleasant service and the food was very well-prepared and tasty."
    Dined on 2/13/2009
  • "My expectations were definitely let down. We had an early reservation and it seemed the staff was not prepared to open. I felt as though they were still in the midst of setting up for dinner service rather than ready to start dinner service. The lack of attention to our table was unacceptable. The food was fair to say the least. We will not return."
    Dined on 10/25/2008
  • "We were fortunate enough to eat at the Chef's Table and received fantastic service. The ambiance and service really made our visit to Ducca memorable. The food was a little hit and miss. I had the risotto with rabbit and black truffle and it was just wonderful. The layers of flavors were just amazing. Others at my table had the osso bucco and found it to be a little tough and dry, two qualities one doesn't expect in a slow braised dish. The wine list was complete, if not extensive. We enjoyed an unfiltered Newton Chard with our first course. For a special occasion, I would highly recommend the chef's table at Ducca. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 9/13/2008
  • "The first thing that comes to mind is the noise level.(The noise ratings button does seem to let me click on anything other than "energetic") Virtually impossible to hear yourself talk in the small bar area, and noise carried well into the dining area. A few items we ordered were great & others only okay. Minestrone had very good broth flavor, but the sparse vegetables were somewhat under cooked. The salads were tasty and a good size. Disappointing buck wheat pasta w/sardines, the chicken dish seemed to be just okay (I am usually opposed to ordering chicken), Osso Buco was pretty good, I felt it was over spiced,(like many dishes) too much saffron? Best dish was the Gnocchi. Waitress was perfect & Roberto, manager/wine guy was terrific."
    Dined on 9/12/2008
  • "It's a great location for a business lunch between museums. The food is OK."
    Dined on 9/9/2008
  • "Over-rated! Over Priced! Poor Management and Waiter, Bus Persons were the exception, as they were courteous and attentive to the needs of customers. Customer Service lacking and much to be desired. At one year anniversary, service should be a lot better. Acoustics of main dining area is horrible. Difficult to hold a conversation with the person sitting right next to you. The scene overall is a bit pretentious. Perhaps a good place for drinks and appetizers after work, out on the patio or at the bar/lounge area. But that's about it. Probably good for larger boisterous groups, but not for couples trying to have a nice quiet dinner."
    Dined on 8/1/2008
  • "Compared to the fabulous starters, pastas and desserts, the main courses were a disappointment. My fish was dry and the asparagus beneath it was overcooked. The beef entree was flavorless. (This was very different from our last experience when the cod was cooked to perfection.) The kitchen sent out a wonderful complimentary dessert celebrating an anniversary at the table, which was a nice surprise. We were seated far away from the bar in a romantic, quiet corner, a definite plus, since the bar crowd can be noisy. The service was wonderful. When I return, I'll order one of the pastas as my main course. Beware of the price you'll pay for valet parking at the hotel. With a validated ticket, the 4 hour parking fee was $37!"

  • "World class italian cuisine. Price should be advertised $$$$. One of the best gourmet experiences in SF."
    Dined on 7/26/2008
  • "We partook of their new summer Italian grilled dinner on the patio and it was even better than we expected. The food was delicious and a bargain at the price; plus we always enjoy eating outside."
    Dined on 7/23/2008
  • "Either the tables are too high or the bench seats too low, but I found the seating uncomfortable. The dinner forks with curved handles were oddly uncomfortable to use as well. Considering the attention to detail in the food, presentation, and service I was surprised at these flaws."
    Dined on 7/22/2008
  • "Food good, not outstanding. Expensive. Wine list very expensive."
    Dined on 7/21/2008
  • "The food service was lacking. We were served a food course before we finished what we were eating. We even had a fork in hand when the server wanted to put the plate down. One dish was clean, but had not been removed to allow space for the next plate he wanted to put down. When this was mentioned to our waitress she said it was her fault then rolled her eyes at us as she walked away!!!!!! Not a good move for that caliber of a restaurant. The lamb ragu papparadelle was lacking in flavor, however the cod dish was excellent."
