    The restaurant was virtually empty, terrible music was blasting making it impossible to have a conversation. We were about to leave after the third request was ignored when it was turned down a bit only to be turned back up and kept up when the food was served. The restaurant was incredibly expensive with the cheapest carafe of Sake $60. The food was middle of the road Japanese food. If we’d had gotten the tasting menu a dinner for three with wine or sake could have cost 500 per person. Maybe the food would have been good, maybe not but the atmosphere would have been unpleasant.

    The most expensive dinner I payed in my 2week trip in New York and it wasn’t worth the money. Food was good but I’ve had much better sushi in other high end places in New York for half the price.

    Friends & I dined here for the first time. We thought the food was ABSOLUTELY fresh, delicious & the service was sublime! The timing of the food & presentation was impeccable. I am new to Japanese dining & found the portions to be smaller than the typical American portions. The dining/seating was somewhat close to each other & the noise level quickly elevated with a group of six guests. I could easily hear the conversation of the guests sitting next to me. Having said this, I would return. The food & service alone would draw me back.

    Best fine dining experience I've ever had. If you appreciate the Japanese cuisine and have a little (much) money left, there is no question you must visit Kappo Masa. They were so friendly seating us 2 hours early (last minute change of plans on our side). Every one of the nine courses of the tasting menu was truly memorable and even drinks and dessert (latter from Lady M bakery) were outstanding. No complaints whatsoever, this was an unforgettable night.

    Food was OK but the prices were beyond belief. And I go to tons of Japanese restaurants. The sake list had bottles on it that sell for $30 retail marked up 5 times or more. Never have seen anything like it before in NYC.

    Just order omakase-style (at the chef’s discretion), tell them what you don’t like or don’t eat and let the magic happen. We had such a delicious, extravagant lunch that was nonetheless light, invigorating and deeply satisfying. Masterful chef and team, beautiful art and an elevated, classic lunch experience. It is highly recommended.

    This was my third visit to Kappo Masa. It never disappoints! Delicious food and attentive, helpful service. The Lamb Juju and both the tempura asparagus and seared salmon and avocado rolls were great. The server was very helpful and patient in talking through dietary restrictions. Definitely planning to return!
