Food was good except the coconut shrimp sushi didn’t appear to have any coconut and very little pineapple as advertised. Waiter was a bit of a space cadet.

Food and drinks were fantastic, as usual. My only negative-ish comment is regarding the manager or hostess, who came by our table, asked how our meal was (to which we replied “wonderful”), and then felt compelled to tell us that customers were complaining about that very same dish earlier in the night. She walked away, and we all didn’t feel terribly confident in our raw fish after that chat...

We went to Masa 14 for my birthday brunch and it couldn’t have been any better! We were a group of 8 and the service was impeccable. Our server Dora was the best and took awesome care of us. The selection for the all you can eat brunch was amazing and the drinks were constantly flowing. Thanks so much for a great time!

It’s unfortunate that incompetent workers can make a perfectly good experience frustrating and upsetting. We enjoyed a nice brunch (bottomless brunch was good) until the staff who delivered food from the kitchen began delivering items to the wrong tables. Twice I witnessed our desert being delivered to the table next to ours, causing surprise on the patrons at that table. We also never received 2 dishes we ordered twice, although I’m sure they were given to someone else. Finally, had to get up and involve the manager to get our desert and get out. Server was very polite and the food was excellent, but the lack of organization was horrible and the owner of this resturaunt is losing profits because of either untrained or unqualified staff. I won’t be back or offering referrals.

First time going to Mass 14. Sunday brunch with friends and family . Our server Dora was amazing ! She was super helpful and had a great attitude the entire time . Laughed and joked around with us, she fit right in. Plates were small so had us questioning if we were going to get full but we sure did. I loved the chilaquiles , yuca and carrot cake. The food came out pretty fast . We were a big party and placed multiple plates at once. Our glasses were constantly getting filled. You really get your money’s worth here! Great first time expierience I will def be back for brunch. Thanks to all at Mass 14!

Lots of food selection in the form of tapas. Would recommend their chicken satay and flatbreads. Sushi was a bit different, more like fried rice with sauce. Upstairs roof area has a cool atmosphere and this place becomes vibrant on late evenings during the weekend, with dance music and lights.

The atmosphere was fun, and energetic. The menu was big with a lot of options, and since it was a bottomless tapas we tried things we would never normally order, which was great! The food was fast and hot, the flavors were absolutely amazing. I love this place and I plan on coming back, a lot! Shadonna was our server and she was very knowledgeable and helpful with the food and drinks. She was attentive but not intrusive, the whole experience was fun. My husband and I had a really good time.

Wasn’t bad per se, just wasn’t great. Didn’t live up to the hype. Went for brunch and had a cup of coffee, after I finished cup had to flag someone down for refill and never got it. Asked again for coffee - boo. Some food was awesome (scrambeled egg dish, Korean fried chicken)) other was just okay (potatos/kimchi fried rice). Our waiter was super nice but also really clumsy and kind of frantic - knocking things over etc. good deal if you want to go and get drunk at brunch.

I've eaten at Masa 14 several times now, but prior to this visit it was only ever for brunch. This time around I came for DC Restaurant Week and ordered the bottomless food and drinks option. The food selection was varied and was delivered quickly, but during the first hour and a half my date and I received two drinks at most. Seeing as the bottomless drinks costed an extra $20, this was upsetting and ruined the early portion of the experience for the both of us. After complaining to the manager, we received much faster service. Typically in these instances it wouldn't be unreasonable to have something small comped by the restaurant for the inconvenience, but we received nothing. I'd still recommend coming here for the food, but be prepared for inconsistent service depending on staffing that evening.

Kitchen was way off this past Sunday during brunch. Had been there for New Years Day brunch and had no issues with food - but for whatever reason this past Sunday, the kitchen served us about five dishes that were ice-cold. One, sure, happens. Five? Something wasn't working that day.

The wait staff were incredibly kind, however, and the food is in of itself good. Would still recommend, but watch out if you think the kitchen may get overwhelmed.

My sister, a native to the DC area, had taken me to brunch the previous Sunday (July 27) and there seemed to be a plethora of issues between the kitchen and our server. We paid for the unlimited brunch and our food took over an hour until it reached our table. Among other issues, management did apologize and made some favorable check adjustments. My sister was quite disappointed because I had just moved down here a month ago and this is one of her favorite spots. Despite the service and confusion, the food was still outstanding.

Based off of the great and unique food, I decided to bring 3 friends this past Sunday (August 3). Once again, the service was not even remotely attentive. Our server had another big party and we were essentially left in the dust. Many other servers would come over periodically to refill our drinks but food took 30-45 minutes per plate. It was frustrating to bring friends to a place with great food just to have the service let us down. Paying $50/person (tip included) does not sit well when you feel like you were not relaxed and taken care of.

The receptionist could not find our reservation, despite me showing her my confirmation. Rather than offer to accommodate us anyway, she said she could not seat us without a reservation. Fortunately her colleague’s common sense prevailed and we were seated after some time.

The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was creative and tasty.

The restaurant was very loud, making conversation very difficult.

The waitress served drinks in an inefficient manner. For example, I ordered a beer and it took ten minutes to get another beer. After I complained, she brought my next beer in two minutes. Personally I feel like I should not have to complain to get a beer in more than five minutes unless the bar is crowded. About 10 people were at the bar. There was no reason for my table to be neglected.

I don't think there are enough superlatives in the language to describe this restaurant! First, Dora was AMAZING. HUGE shout out to her. The endless tapas offering was the best for us and most economical. The edamame was disappointing - very little spice, no salt and otherwise bland. The remaining tapas dishes were SUPERB! Try to avoid filling up on dishes with lots of rice- go with the lighter fare and you will be able to sample MORE of these gastronomical delights. Six thumbs up (there were three of us)!!!

We will definitely be back!

The restaurant was out of coffee, tea and the hot water machine was broken. In addition, food items on the all inclusive brunch menu were not available. The hostess was the rudest service person I’ve encountered in quite some time. The server was kind but her presentation was poor, her service was mediocre and we had to ask the table next to us for their extra silverware so that we could eat food that had been sitting for 15 minutes awaiting the server’s return. I should mention the upstairs rooftop was not that crowded or busy. They also ran out of champagne at an all inclusive champagne brunch and the food runners were slinging plates on the table without any regard. Frankly, I was quite embarrassed I’d chosen to bring my out of town friends to this place which is a horrible representation of quality DC dinning. I hold management fully accountable. I have no plans to return to this place.

I’m honestly a bit disappointed with my visit to Masa 14. I use to frequent this restaurant on a weekly basis, and upon my latest visit, I was shocked with how bland and unexciting the food has become. I use to love the food they served here, but now the menu is completely different and very bland to taste. Hopefully they are considering revamping their menu again or investing in a more skilled kitchen.
