A word from Masona Grill
Since the opening of Masona Grill in Spring 2006, chef/owner Manuel Sifnugel continues to challenge the boundaries of dining pleasure. Having created a unique dining experience with his previous restaurant Claremont Café, a long time South End favorite, Manuel has introduced the Parkway area and beyond to a fine New American cuisine with Mediterranean influence. Cilantro, lime, cumin, mint and ginger are key ingredients in Manuel’s cooking. His eclectic fare extends to the design and ambience of the restaurant. Colorful artwork, contemporary fixtures, hardwood floors and trendy pillows create a cozy yet upscale dining experience in a neighborhood restaurant.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "A neighborhood gem sparkles in West Roxbury's quiet back yard. Nestled out-of-the way across from the Highland T stop, Masona Grill could be missed. The signage is so understated you could miss the front entrance. Once you step inside, you will find yourself in a bohemian-style grotto, low-lit with warm, orange-hued lighting. From the "library corner" (best seat for four in the house) we were surrounded by shelves of cookbooks, yet could view the whole restaurant. Tucked away, we could enjoy our conversation privately, yet be part of the engaging community of diners. The best part of the evening was the food--delicious and eclectic-and the service--attentive and personable. The duck was delectable, scallops supreme. Our new favorite!"

  • "Did not know this existed, even though it was 10 minutes from my house. Not on a main street so I know how I had missed it. My wife and I were very surprised how much we really enjoyed our dining experience. We have already recommended it to some our friends. We'll done Masona Grill."

  • "My friend who was in town from New York had suggested trying Peruvian food. Masona Grill offers Americanized Peruvian cuisine. I had read a number of glowing reviews on Trip Advisor, so I was encouraged before arriving at the restaurant. We had an amazing meal and enjoyed every aspect of the evening. The food was just amazing and I think I had the best Tres Leches dessert that I have ever tried in my life. I have traveled to South America and Southern Europe and to have come across this in West Roxbury was a treat. The menu is excellent and not overwhelming and there are some great wine choices as well. The ambiance and unique design makes it a wonderful and romantic date spot as well."

  • "We had a wonderful meal at Masona Grill. My husband and I had a Groupon. We shared chicken livers as an appetizer. He had the paella and I shared the tuna tartar with a friend. Her husband also had the chicken livers and steak as his main course. We also shared the beet salad. Everything was so tasty. I had been craving chicken livers and the waiter said how great they were. He was right! This is one of our favorite restaurants and I feel that we are never disappointed with our choices."

  • "Five of us chose Masona Grill for a women's night out. Food was wonderful as usual. Orders were taken and our appetizers and dinners arrived in a timely manner. We spent several hours chatting while eating and never felt rushed. The only negative was that it was a hot, humid night and the ac wasn't working effectively - for which the staff apologized. Apparently the ac had just been serviced but clearly still had a problem. I expect the problem has been rectified by now."

  • "My fiance and I went back to Masona Grill for the second time, after purchasing a Groupon since we loved our first experience so much. This time we were seated in the upper section by the bar, and it was so loud we had significant trouble hearing each other! So much for our date night chatting. The food was good, but the experience was definitely less romantic and comfortable than our first time there (when we were seated in the lower level and felt like we had at least a bit more privacy, and could hear each other speak). Not sure if we will give it another try, but I definitely won't be as excited when it comes on Groupon next time around."

  • "The menu is interesting with many delectable Peruvian dishes. The food is consistently superb. The ambience is understated. This restaurant is about the food and it is the kind of place where the service is personal with the owner or chef typically visiting each party at some point during the night. They make each patron feel special and cared for."

  • "Funky little place on a side street and across from the commuter rail with a warm welcome and an eclectic menu. Creative food served beautifully. Friendly, feels like everyone there knows each other. Incredible oyster app. Yummy beet salad. Four of us with four different entrees and all happy. Not cheap and you might balk at the prices at such an inauspicious location. Worth it!"

  • "We have been meaning to try Masona for the past few months. My guy is Peruvian, so he is familiar with that type of food. We got the cousa(sp?) as an appetizer and it was perfect, loved the sauce! Our main courses (shrimp for me, lamb for him) were delicous. The tres leche (sp?) - I am obviously not Peruvian, dessert was outstanding. I thought it would be super sweet, but it was the perfect blend of flavors. I would highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to return."

  • "Masona continues to be one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always reliably delicious. We had an appetizer of pear salad which was yummy. For the main dish, I had the soft shell crabs which is my favorite and absolutely excellent. My partner had the scallops which she said was also superb. The presentation was beautiful, and the wait staff was helpful and cheerful. You will not be disappointed. "

  • "We have been to Masona Grill before , it was excellent. This time we were going for a very special birthday. We had a 7 PM reservation and were seated by the owner/chef(who had been extremely friendly the last time). It turns out there was only ONE waiter who was also the bar tender. The restaurant was close to full. We waited one hour for an appetizer and two hours for our food. My husband went around and filled ours and other patrons water glasses because there was no one to do it. The food was good but by the time the food came, I truly had lost my appetite. Overall it was so disappointing. Also my husband and daughter had the paella. It was beautifully prepared but so spicy my daughter could not eat it. My husband loved it. "

  • "The menu was interesting and had a lot to choose from. As someone who eats meat very seldomly, it was a bit tricky, but I opted for the grilled pork tenderloin and it was fantastic. The wait staff was excellent, the space very unique, and the wine list good but affordable."

  • "The Masona Grill is one of my favorite restaurants. Went there to celebrate my birthday with friends and everyone's food was delicious. We started out with a calamari appetizer which was very good; it had a good consistency and the portion was very generous. I ordered an eggplant entree which I have had before and like very much. It is consistently tasty. One of my friends ordered the pork special and she said it was excellent. The only disappointment for me was that they changed the menu and removed the duck which is my very favorite dinner and substituted it for lamb."
