Our waiter was nice but the food was really mediocre at best. Having had great experiences there before, I was really bummed.

Everything was awesome and these were the largest tapas servings I've ever had! Definitely get the unlimited tapas option. It's more than worth it. The dessert was very disappointing. They served a carrot cake which looked like carrot muffin with a tiny swirl of cream cheese frosting and charged $8 for it. The flavors were ok but had I known that's what I was going to get I would not have order it...but nevermind that you'll probably be so satisfied with the food you wouldn't want any.

Use to love this place. Been coming here for a few years now for brunch and always left pleased. Did some major changes to the brunch menu and it’s not very disappointing. #bringbacktheoldbrunchmenu

All of the food was cold. It’s an unlimited brunch menu - where you order small plates a la carts and it’s all included in a $39 meal. I assume they prep all the food in advance since people likely order the same selection of plates - and have the plates sitting out getting cold all morning. One of the croquettes I ate was actually frozen. The manager kindly discounted our bill but I will not be returning. I had been here for dinner and loved it and was excited to try the brunch but left very disappointed.

Great food & drinks, good prices, and friendly service. Atmosphere was a little sub-par. They sat us outside in a covered rooftop with space heaters in February with pleanty of open tables remaining inside. Food was good value and tasted great. Would visit again with friends in the summer. Not great for a nicer evening. More of a going out scene.

I had a great time at Masa 14. Took my boyfriend there for his birthday dinner. The unlimited flowing tapas and select drinks is a great deal. Highly recommend the shiitake mushroom buns! Matthew was our server—polite, helpful and held great conversation. Can’t wait to go back :)

 (Edinburgh)·Dined on February 3, 2018

Food was mostly good, we got a lot of dishes but the pork buns, yucca fries and Brussels sprouts were the best. The unlimited dishes was good value but drinks were quite expensive. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We sat upstairs which would be great during the Summer because it has an open terrace but quite cold in January! A fine experience but I think you could do better for a similar price in this area.

Masa 14 is amazing. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. When I make reservations, I am seated instantly. Once when I was late for a reservation, and it had been cancelled, the host still worked with my to have my party seated. Our server was fast and accurate and had a welcoming spirit. All of the staff works together effectively to make sure all of your wants and needs are met. The bathrooms were clean. The atmosphere is awesome. This place is a hidden gem. The food is so delicious.

The restaurant week value of $35 for unlimited food is always a great deal, enjoyed the flat iron steak plate and the yuca fries are worth it just for the citrus aioli dip.

Service was outstanding. Stephanie and the young lady she was training was really on point. Grace at the host stand deserves a raise! She has a great smile and an awesome personality. I was very disappointed with the menu and quality of food. The Kimchee rice did not seem fresh and a lot of the items on the menu were pork heavy and to a non pork eater like me it was challenging to pick items to chow down on.

We came for Restaurant Week and loved everything about it. It was the first time going, the food was great, excellent value during the week and the atmosphere was friendly and upbeat. Our server Shawn was great, she made excellent recommendations and gave us an appetizer for tasting.

She consistently checked on us and we enjoyed conversation thru out the evening.

I went here for my anniversary and we left extremely happy. We opted for the $60 unlimited tapas/drink. We tried about ten different dishes and each one was better than the last. (The skirt steak was incredible). There were also more drink options included in the unlimited special than we had expected, so that was a pleasant surprise!

Overall, very trendy place with delicious food and great service.

Masa14 has become a disappointment. The food was mediocre and the drinks were terrible. A drink off the “specials” menu with 4 ingredients (bourbon, amaro, aperol, and lemon) proved too difficult for the bartender to make. They brought a beer!? We were offered other drinks while they tried to “figure out how to make” the special. The replacement drinks were made with low quality liquor and tasted terrible. The food was boring and not particularly good. With so many other options on 14th Street, I will not return and would advise anyone else against eating here.

Get the $60 all you can eat and drink tapas. The selection of included food and drinks is huge and the service is quick. Our waiter was great at checking in to see if we needed anything else and making menu recommendations. I will definitely be back. The food is good and it's a great value for the city.
