Great atmosphere and food
We 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 slow

Contemporary 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.

Great authentic Mexican food!
My wife and I went to Masa for our annerversary dinner. She had previously been there with friends and raved about it. We were able to get reservations easily (due to off season). The service was great and the server Rafael was able to answer and questions we had and make appropriate recommendations. The food was excellent. I had the Carne Asada Tacos, and I have to say that it was the best Carne I have had since moving from California! The Guacomoli was awesome. This is a great resaurant for any occasion. They also have great lunch specials daily. I would recommend making reservations as I can see it filling up during peak season here in Florida (November-April).

Our waiter, Ron, was the absolute best and every one of our party of six LOVED the entire evening. The food and service could not have been any better.

We dined outdoors on the side
We dined outdoors on the side - great people watching location! Delicious cocktails - Margarita Diabolita is divine! Took a visiting friend there - wonderful time. We sampled appetizers. Excellent guacamole and chips! Calamari on black rice also a real standout.

We loved the food, it was very different than other Mexican foods. The drinks were pricey for the size served and it was very noisy. We will go back, weather permitting would prefer to sit outside.

Mexican food with a twist
Exciting restaurant featuring Mexican food with a twist. Great ambiance, wonderful service and tasty dishes. Don't miss the guacamole.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinning at Masa was an amazing experience for me and my wife. The ambience was clear, detailed and light, providing a great experience for the occasion. The service was also great, with smiling servers and always-ready attendants. But when it comes to Food that Masa grows. By providing a perfect combination of mexican traditional cuisine - with dishes like the amazing chicken tamale - and modern, all the spices and flavors match in an overwhelming experience. Highly recommended for Naples neighbors or visitors.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Without a doubt, the best Mexican food in the area. The churros are like little sugar pillows that melt in your mouth.

Great food and service
It was our second time here. Not so crowed this time. The food selection is
Limited but the choices and quality are excellent. We had
Excellent service both times. The bar area could
Be more inviting, loose the couches and put tables
In there. A family with little kids was sitting there
Laying down and running around. Distracting for
The adult or dating crowd. Not a family place.
The pork is fabulous. Our favorite. Fish tacos and
Enchiladas were great Fresh chips and great sauces. The margaritas are
Pricey but excellent. Love the habanero infused one!

Love this place!
We're from Chicago where we have tons of excellent Mexican restaurants to choose from, this blows them all away in our opinion. Fantastic in every way! Highly recommended!

Special occasion Mexican
My husband and I enjoyed our experience at Masa. We sat outside and had plenty of privacy. We enjoyed yummy adult beverages. Even the warm chips and salsa were great! We had wonderful service. Our meals looked and tasted beautiful! We will definitely be back.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
never been there before
Renaldo, the bartender, was friendly and did his job. Exceeded expectations. Made our evening. Food was good but a bit salty. Chips a bit oily. Great atmosphere. Fun place!

Liked it a lot!
It was our first time at MASA. Liked it a lot. Casey did a great job for 4 of us!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two of us loved everything we had. My hanger steak was the best!!! The slow roasted Pork was wonderful and the guacamole and chips were perfectly done! The Margarita Diabolita was incredible! This is the ONLY Mexican for us in Naples!! Can be a little hard to notice it's on the left as you come down the main street at the circle-valet parking is the easiest to use!

The food at Masa was a real
The food at Masa was a real suprise. It is located in a mall type place so I did not have high hopes, however, the meals were very authentic and it is moderately priced. This is a real find in Naples! Drinks were also good. Wine list looked pretty good and the margaritas were excellent (no shortage of alcohol). The decor is quite hip and modern but not too stark.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but not great.
This place has a great vibe and the location and restaurant itself is beautiful.
The food was average Mexican you can get anywhere. I expected a liitle more upscale Mexican cuisine for the ambiance and price
But it was not...just dressed up to think it is.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Masa was unique and fabulous. The atmosphere very open, fun and the decor was beautiful. I have been twice now and both times my wait person was first rate. Lovely restaurant.

Tasty and friendly
We were very impressed that they read the note in our reservation and had prepared a special list of foods that my vegan friend could choose from.

Fun food and atmosphere
Amazingly busy for a Sat. off season. Menu was not extensive but all 4 entrees were very good. Calamari and black rice appetizer was outstanding. Cobia was the best but assorted tacos were very good as were enchiladas. Service was attentive and informative. Will definitely return.

Inventive, unusual Mexican food
This is a truly excellent restaurant. Though not expensive, service is outstanding and cuisine includes a wide variety of interesting Mexican fare. Dishes can be modified for the "spice challenged". The drinks are excellent also. Everything is well prepared and well served.

Top flight wait staff.
Wide selection of food.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great vibrant atmosphere, try the margheritas with habenero, outstanding, all of the staff was very attentive, and seemed to really enjoy there job, well managed as several of us have been in the business, great location near the theaters. will make it our regular spot at the Mercato.

Before the movie dinner
We were going to a 7:00 movie, so we had to eat earlier than our usual time. At 5:30 the bar filled up because I think they have a very good happy hour with some drinks at 1/2 off. Our food was excellent in preparation and presentation. Not greasy or fat, as some may think when they think of Mexican food. This is upscale Mexican Cuisine. Very bright, great location. We will go back!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love to come here before
We love to come here before or after we catch a movie at the Theater across the street. The food is excellent and the service is always good. I really enjoyed their new scallop dish.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Masa is a modern Mexican restaurant. It is a eclectic and hip. Outdoor seating is available and recommended if it's not too hot outside. The wait staff is particularly helpful.
The tequila drinks are noteworthy. Experiment a little!
Food is consistently good.
Was there several months ago and they had noisy birds in the main restaurant. If they are still there I hope you don't get seated near them.

Interesting, creative, delicious menu and superb service. Wonderful décor!

Have been coming to Naples intermittently for 45 years. Best dining experience ever. Awfully glad friends recommended to us.

Masa = Yummy!
This time we came for our anniversary. Last time we brought out-of-town guests. We save Masa for Special Occasions and the food and service is always amazing. First came drinks, chips and 2 salsas. Next we had the Calamari with black ink rice. My wife had the pan roasted scallops and I had the Tacos (1 Fish, 1 Pork, 1 Carne Asada. Wow! Like a party for your mouth, my wife says. Yum!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service
The food and service have been consistently terrific! The atmosphere is vibrant and fun. We have been to Masa about 10 times and are happy with the experience each and every time.

Not Your Typical Mexican Restaurant
Much more authentic and gourmet food then you think of for Mexican--and with great atmosphere! Guacamole, chips and salsas are all excellent. Chicken enchilada is outstanding--the verde sauce makes it. Fish tacos were very tasty. The snapper with jalapenos was extremely hot--too much so. We asked the waiter and he advised it was not very hot and that the jalapenos were just placed loosely on top and could be lifted off. (They were sliced and mixed in--so could not be easily removed.) Service was friendly, but it is never overly quick here. Overall, a good casual dining experience with generally very good food.

new and notable in naples
Great service fantastic mango margaritas and great food. We will defintely be back
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun Place, Great Soup
The place is energetic and wonderful for people watching. The Sopa Tortilla is one of the best soups I have since a homemade lobster bisque back in 2009.

Newer Gem in Naples
Opened last year and we were late in trying it. Went for lunch and then back for dinner. Both meals were excellent. Well trained wait staff were attentive but not smothering. The food is fantastic. Authentic well spiced and presented very creatively. Cucumber margarita is a must-have!!!! Don't miss it if you are visiting the Mercato Shopping Center!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there at 4 pm for their limited happy hour menu but a good valuel and delicious.
