This was a one time of my favorites, not any more. Food is so-so and price too high for quality.
Great food choices for the breakfast buffet. Staff will also cook you a customized omelet in the kitchen.
The restaurant is not open for lunch. They have a small buffet in the lobby where you grab and go. Walked out.
delicious food, good wine and a nice space. easy to have a conversation and the staff doesn't rush you out
The food here is average or slighly above. Its the poor service that made this a notable experience. Started with one waiter who took our order. A second waiter arrived and said he was taking over so we had to order again. Both waiters promptly disappeared. Food was delivered by the kitchen staff. We finished our drinks, were never offered more, water was never refilled and ordered an appetizer that never came. Had to wait 20 minutes after we finished eating to ask the hostess for our bill. After paying I had to give my card to another tables server. Altogether it felt like having customers was a real bother to them.
Food interesting and good quality although quite expensive. Servers nice but not engaged. Atmosphere attractive but lacked energy.
My party and I were in San Francisco for the holidays. We were staying at a nearby hotel. We did not want an expensive meal. I read the reviews and also solicited help from the concierge at the hotel where we were staying. It was difficult to discern what restaurants were open on Christmas. The reviews for MaSo were decent and it was walking distance from our hotel. The service was great but the food was meh. We had salads first - the romaine on my Caesar was very bitter and the other salad had slimy greens for a portion of the salad. I had the Christmas special which featured a filet and lobster tail. This entree was fine but not remarkable. Our other entree was the blackened flounder which was so-so. My special came with a special chocolate chestnut dessert. The cake was dry on my first bite but it did improve after that.
Wonderfully warm atmosphere and a rare find that allowed us in on short notice. Order the yam fries with aeoli sauce.
My wife and I went here for her birthday dinner and it was very good. Service was great and all were very friendly. Food was above average as we had the Kobe meatloaf and the burger. Was $60 for two of us without drinks so pricing was solid in SF.
My companion and i had lunch and we chose the crab cake and the lobster club sandwich. we picked the stars on the menu. The crabcake has just enough seasoning so you can taste the freshness of the crabmeat. And the lobster club! Darn big chunks of lobster in every bite, the bread is thick country bread so it is really filling. I highly recommend these 2 items on the menu.
Service is attentive and cordial. Our server greeted us with a big smile which started things off great.
We booked a reservation here and the hostess told us we could "sit at the bar or leave" as there was a private event. Not sure why they bothered accepting reservations. Our server didn't even approach our table for 20 minutes then never returned unt we had finished our meal for several minutes. Wouldn't recommend.
Comfortable space. Nice atmosphere. Attentive staff. Excellent food. It was too warm outside to eat, but would really like nice. Nice setup and is very popular. Generally stay away from hotel restaurants, but this is worth it.
This was good place to have lunch/brunch in San Francisco. Great service, and excellent location. Only "but" we have was that for a Saturday, many people want a true lunch menu and this was mostly brunch items..not a big selection for lunch!
Servers we're inattentive and we felt like they didn't want to take our order. The Resturant was pretty empty, yet many of the tables still has food from previous guest.
MaSo had all the ingredients for a great experience- great menu, location, decor. But a dud. We've dined at Trace which has similar attributes but is really great. Go figure. And go somewhere else. It's not that it's bad, it's just not good.
