  • Not A Place for Anniversary Dinner

    Thought it would be a great place to dine with my wife for our 12th year anniversary dinner, turns out that we did not get any attention, had to ask for refill for water and tea. Lots of things that needs to be asked, waiter was pushy and rushing, not a great experience at all.

    The waiter did not listen well. Two of us wanted to split an entree, two of us wanted a starter salad and the other a cup of gumbo. We got one soup, one salad (until we got a bus boy to bring another), and three entrees instead of two. The food we got was good.

    I enjoyed a business lunch with clients. The food selection suited everyone in our party, from the weight watcher to the foodie. Service was spot on. Food arrived in a timely manner allowing us to complete our meal and visit in time to return to the office on time. We ordered iced tea and our glasses were never below half before we received a refill without asking or being interrupted. I'll choose Massa's again when I'm in downtown Houston.

  • Shrimp and Grits

    The Shrimp were over grilled and kind of spicy. The Grits were excellent, just not enough of them. No bread was offered before the meal. The Blueberry Bread Pudding was fantastic.

    Massa's is my "go-to" downtown lunch spot, particularly for business lunch meetings. Good, fresh seafood and prompt, courteous service. I typically get the grilled salmon with spinach and mashed sweet potatoes. I eat there 1-2 times a week and it never disappoints.

    Overall there was really nothing notable about this restaurant dining experience. It has a great location but appears to need a chef for the lunch hour, as the food, while not bad, was simply not good.

  • Great nice dinner before the game
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/4/2014
    The location is ideal if you want to eat at a nice place before a game. I had the lobster which was delicious. My wife had chicken pasta which was pretty good but they are a seafood place, afterall. Staff is not as polished as some places but the service is still excellent.

    The waiter wanted to give us the specials before delivering our cocktails, a definite no on a full day of work and meeting a girlfriend for cocktails. We wanted to relax for a minute before deciding on dinner. Steak was ordered medium rare and came out medium. The owner came over and offered to buy us dessert (not that we complained about anything). The Brandy Alexander was extraordinary! Worth going there for!
