    the 4 course tasting menu was very well balanced and efficiently delivered to the table. However a great dining experience isn't solely around the food and unfortunately laying out tables 4-6 inches apart doesn't do much for the ambience of what was supposed to be a romantic evening. almost felt like walking straight out when we saw the row of 6 tables for 2 jammed against the wall - real disappointment.

    Went on a Saturday night with a friend from out of town and we both loved it. We went with the 4 course menu and each of the courses was amazing, fresh, perfectly prepared, delicious. Service was excellent - the right balance of information and attention without being annoying. Highly recommend it.

    I had high expectations after going to Mas grillade and unfortunately it did not compare. The experience at Mas grillade was much much better. The wait staff was pretenscious and made you feel uncomfortable. The food was average at best. The nice thing was that there was flexibility in the four course tasting menu. I can't say that any item I ate was memorable.

    My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much. The service was professional, friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent with nice presentation and a creative flair. The atmosphere was inviting with a "smart casual" tone (understated Indie rock on the audio system, attentive and friendly wait staff). The space itself struck the farmhouse chord that they are aiming for. My only negative comment is I left ready to eat more.

    The menu was innovative and interesting. The food was delicious. The wait staff were friendly, but so very slow. Waited over 45 minutes for our appetizers, even longer for entrees. What made it worse was the anemic air conditioning that was provided to the diners. Not one of our party was not sweating by the end of the meal.

    *Really* amazing food. They'll let you assemble your own three or six course tasting menu from the rest of the menu, and everything is lovely. I had sort of a decomposed salad of quail eggs, green beans, and summer snap peas, which was amazingly good and fresh, and then a great tuna dish, and really yummy chicken. Highly highly recommend.

    Did the tasting menu. Everything was good with 2 exceptions. The goat cheese ravioli was swimming in beet juice, which kind of overwhelmed the dish. The rack of lamb had the most fat on it I have ever seen in this dish. By the time I cut that away, not much left to eat. The drink (vodka grapefruit martini) was perfect. The lobster salad and tuna apps were the best part of the meal. The waiter was not very attentive, but polite. He never checked if we liked any of the food, other than once, right after the appetizers. Overall, good, but not worth the money, in my opinion.

    Dined on 6/9/2012
    Our experience at Mas was nice, but didn't exactly compare to the rave reviews that we'd heard from other people. The overall ambiance was nice, the food was tasty and the service was attentive. There were a few cons though - first, the "grade pending" sign in the window didn't exactly inspire confidence for such a high-end restaurant. Then, we felt pressured by the waiter to order a much more expensive bottle of wine than what we'd selected. "No" didn't seem to be an option which we didn't really appreciate. Then, my card was charged for a full amount even though I brought (and gave) them a gift-card. Not a big deal as it was easily remedied, but this certainly wasn't the care-free, luxury dining experience that I was expecting it to be.

    Unobtrusive place on quiet West Village street features provencal-inflected dishes with emphasis on seafood. Limited but interesting menu. Food was good to excellent. Duck and halibut main courses both worth trying. Portions are modest. Staff is friendly and engaging although service is less than professional (glasses go unfilled, bread plates left empty). Wine list is very eclectic and interesting but very much overpriced. Atmosphere is comfortable, with attractive decor, soft lighting (a little too dim), and background hum that permits easy conversation. All told we preferred the food at mas (la grillade), their sister restaurant, but preferred the atmosphere at mas (farmhouse). Both are worth trying.

    This is a couples spot for that special occasion. The food is creative, yet good - but not the best in NYC by any means. Atmosphere is serene, the service well timed. Menu changes frequently, but have the tuna tartare appetizer (it's large and has amazing taste), avoid the chicken for a main course; in season have soft shell crabs. Desserts were just ok (and very expensive). Do not have the carrot cake or the sour cherries, but if you must have the hazelnut chocolate dessert. One note, since Open Table only has the non-choice reservation times available (6pm or after 9pm), we took the later res. We were the last to leave the restaurant and as we left and were thanking the staff they said, "GET OUT!" which was so tacky after spending $500

    First time at this restaurant. The service and ambience were great but the food wasn't anything special. They definitely try hard here but I wouldn't rush back. I ordered a salad that was great but very skimpy. For $17, you would think they could give you more than a few pieces of lettuce. That aside - I felt like everything was very salty and somewhat tasteless. Dessert was ok - nothing special. One thing that bothered us was that they were spraying windex in the restaurant while we were still eating. It definitely put a bad taste in my mouth. Cute spot though - and the bar area seemed like a nice place to meet for a drink.

    This is my absolute favorite restaurant in the city. The food is second to none, but unburdened by a stuffy atmosphere or uptight chef/waitstaff. The vibe is more relaxed than most restaurants of its caliber and the service is attentive and friendly. They make a point of noting--again, in contrast to too many restaurants these days--that they are more than happy to alter the menu items to meet food likes/dislikes. My only complaint is that it is so hard to get a reservation these days!
