Have been here multiple times - this time the service was extremely slow and was served not what was ordered. Food was still good, but dinner for two shouldn't take 2+ hours

This place is great for those who like tasty small portions. I've only been here for brunch and each time was consistent. The drinks are decent and the service was pretty good. They could lighten the juice in the mimosas and maybe add 1 or 2 extra drinks to the brunch special. I would certainly return.

The music is not that great. I do not think there's a DJ on the premises. If you wanna eat, drink, and chat, this is certainly the place to come.

We had a group of 5 and saw they had all you can eat and drink for 64 which we thought was a pretty good deal. The waiter was really nice took all of our drink orders and food orders right away. Our drinks came after 15 minutes which was ok and 25 minutes later we had some of our food show up. That was fine but one friend in our group didn’t get anything he ordered. 30 minutes go by and nothing else shows up. We tell the waiter and he’s very laxed and just quietly says it’ll probably come out soon. Another 15 minutes and no other food comes out. Our friend is starving at this time and nothing else comes out. So we’re all getting irritated and we tell the waiter again and still very laxed. So we eventually got all our food. I mean everything was tasty except for the fried rice was tasteless. The drinks kept coming but we noticed there was less and less alcohol with each round. By reading most of the reviews, the service needs to be improved! We noticed it wasn’t even busy on a Saturday night, while every restaurant we walked by on 14th street was jam packed. I’m sure if the service doesn’t improve Masa 14 won’t be around much longer, especially since all the new restaurants are stepping up there food and “service” game!

Food was great, but I had such a weird experience with the service. There was a man (I think the manager) who greeted me and showed me to my seat. He also asked for my drink order before our waitress showed up. I gave him my drink order and he asked for my ID and I gave it to him. He proceeds to say "I can't tell if this is fake...it's so hard to tell anymore..." he holds it up to the light and is inspecting it. I start to get annoyed. I'm 25.... not 21. I usually don't even get ID'ed. Is this suppose to be a nice restaurant? You are accusing me of using a fake ID? Seriously? I'm ready to drop a bunch of money on a restaurant that's accusing me of fraud? Wow. It's a shame because the food was pretty good.

God awful! First had to wait in line 10 mins before anyone talked to us to seat us with a reservation. We get sat upstairs, order drinks and they come out, no lie 30 mins later 1 by 1 by 1. We ordered an appetizer at the same time which came much later. When we finally ordered dinner that took another hour and the food was awful...small portions and tasteless and we all left hungry. Then they rush us and kick us out after they took so damn long saying they are turning the upstairs into a club. WTF! This place USED to be good. Now I know why there are always reservations available 15 mins before you go on a Saturday night. This place should just shut down and move on. TERRIBLE!

Overall, we had a great time! The hostess made a rude comment during check-in about our partying being 10 minutes late not knowing about the St. Patrick Day traffic commute. Other than that, the service and food was amazing. We enjoyed the fast service and delicious menu selections.

I went here for brunch and at first it took the server very long to come over and greet us but once she did she was very nice and apologized for taking a while. The food and drink options at brunch were also very good the only complaint would be that they seem to be understaffed for brunch which slows down the service. It wasn’t too slow but when you go and pay for bottomless you expect to constantly have food and drinks coming you do not expect to be waiting very long. Beside that our server was very nice and did do her best. At the end of the day i had a great time.

The worst. Honestly. Drinks arrived after we were all done with the food. Waited about 45 min for the first round of drinks to arrive but we were already done with the food. Food was not even worth eating. Barely edible for a restaurant on 14th St. The waitress would barely check on us, she’d get a new order of drinks but only asked 2 people out of a table of 10, leave and we’d have to wait for the drinks to be ready and her to come back to order more for the rest of the table. And the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Never seen this before. We booked for a birthday. The table could only cheer the birthday boy after 45 min and not everyone had all their drinks yet. No candle. More wait overall than actual drinking and eating.

Definitely fell off...the food was meh. The best thing was the french toast. My friends were mad I picked this place cause I've raved about it in the past but its been a few years since I moved from the area and what used to be really good, wasn't anymore. Pretty sad to scratch it off the list. I gave it 3 stars cause the mimosas weren't particularly good either but they were strong. DC just has way too many good places to eat especially brunch.

The brunch is really great, with the options of all-you-can-eat food (and also all-you-can drink to accompany it, if you wish).
What I thought was really funny is that if you pick the all-you-can-drink option you still you can have for example unlimited mimosas ... but have to pay extra for coffee. No big deal, but funny.

This used to be a hip chic spot-no more. Server completely uninformed on menu. Showed no care or concern. Had to repeatedly ask for drinks after ordering. Never cleared dirty plates. Food runners just handed food to you instead of placing on table. Also the lighting is awful, so bright and neon. Junky, crappy, trashy.

My boyfriend and I were a little late for our reservation and the host was very friendly and sat us right away. We ordered the unlimited tapas and drinks and were slightly disappointed. We went through over half the menu. Some standouts were the pork belly steam buns and the beef tostadas. The drinks were either too strong or too watered down. While the ambiance and overall vibes of the restaurant were pleasant, the food just wasn’t that great and there are other tapas bars in DC I’d go to before Mass 14.

I went for brunch. I wish this place would restore to its former glory. Several years ago the brunch was AMAZING. It's since turned into quite a disappointing experience. One bad dish after another. It was alarming how quickly they came out and all at the same time. Its clear no care or effort was taken and the food was just scooped out of a pre-made vat.

My husband and I had been here a month ago for brunch and were excited to return with friends from out of town. The experiences could not have been more different due to the service. Our waiter yesterday was not great. He would infrequently come back to the table, forget to bring more water, and brought a very messy spilt drink. Also, I paid an additional $4 for a cup of Luke warm coffee. Just overall very disappointed.

but i would still go back and back as i have numerous times because of the fun setting.
