MaSo Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
I attended MaSo last night with friends (one of my friends was staying at the Westin and I thought I might as well try it. and was very happy that it was such inviting place with fabulous food for a light palate or a foodie's heart! I had the buttermilk fried chicken and since my mom was a southerner, she would have wept tears of joy! That along with a wonderful house cab, appetizers and the chocolate cake with chocolate almond ice cream AND warm chocolate sauce - are you all trying to hurt me? Fabulous and my friends had a wonderful time too. A little noisy because there was a group meeting there behind us, but it was nice to have such a group who were enjoying as much as we were. Please keep up the good work!
I dined at many better (and price comparable) restaurants in San Fran and was disappointed when I arrived to learn this was a hotel restaurant. Very dead and service was very slow. However, our mains were delicious and they accommodated for my friends gluten free needs.
I attended a birthday lunch with several colleagues this week, and the lunch was spectacular! The Meat Loaf, Pumpkin Pasta/Skirt Steak, Salmon, Pumpkin Squash Soup, and Crabcakes....I give up, the ENTIRE menu is delish and each dish presentable and tastefully prepared, even the BREAD, which is warm, delicious and you definitely want to enjoy that experience!
I highly recommend MaSo for a business meal, event, or meal with friends and family; there is a place for everyone to be accommodated. Bon Appétit
I decided to try Maso for lunch with a colleague because it is fairly near the office. We were underwhelmed. The "ceviche" (which is really more of a tartare) was good. We wanted to order the fried chilcken salad (having read good things about the fried chicken) but they had run out. (Huh? It was 1:00 and the place was not busy.) So I ordered the blackened flounder and my colleague ordered the meatloaf. The flounder was too spicy, too greasy and whatever flavor the fish might have had was clobbered by the sauce. (The mashed potatoes were good, though.) My colleague picked at her meatloaf before finally admitting it wasn't good. Service was only OK -- refilling the ice tea would have been welcome. So, I won't be back.
My chef Partner always works on Christmas Day, and his schedule makes reservation options limited. Of course, Open Table had several places to choose from (thankfully!) but we were so delighted to find this gem so close to our hotel. And completely last minute.
Our table was ready a little early and we were seated immediately. Our server was so helpful in choosing from the delicious choices offered. A fantastic meal in a beautiful setting, combined with über-friendly staff, made this Holiday meal an outing to remember.
Every year about 20,000 geoscientists descend on Moscone for a geek feast. Many of us are also foodies. This was my first time at MaSo's and I'm very enthused to have discovered my new favorite place to eat 'n meet. I had the sugar pie pumpkin soup and the kale and arugula salad and swooned with delight. The soup came in it's own pitcher and was added to the little mound of purple barley and micro sprouts, keeping it hot until served. The salad had a just-right combination of pistachios and dates laced with a rich balsamic. The wait staff's attentiveness and the quick turn-around after we placed our order was noted and appreciated by our whole party. It helped us focus on our meeting instead of lunch logistics. I like Maso!!
I took the wife to this place mainly because I heard so much about it. What I noticed, was the lack of people. Food, well, it was okay???? We had the $15. crabcake. Very nice, but not hot and lacked flavor. Very beautiful how it was presented on the plate. For dinner, I ordered the $38. BBQ Rib Eye. Well, thought it was barbequed. I might of had been grilled. They put bbq sauce on the steak which was very under cooked. I asked between pink and red. It came out purple. I was skeptic about taking it back. I've heard so may nightmare stories of what coks do with the food before it come back to your plate. I took it home and nuked it. The bread they brought was awesome. We spent $113. on us. I want my money back.
The food and coffee were very good, but the prices were a bit astronomical. Thankfully this was for a work meeting with my mentor, because I would have passed out seeing the bill if I had to pay for it. I had the fish tacos, and the cod they used was absolutely fantastic. Very meaty, nice beer-style batter that wasn't too much, great fresh cabbage and other toppings, yummy pickled carrots on the side. My colleague had the baby crab burgers, which I had a bite of, and they were also very good. We had coffee and the passion fruit shortcake for dessert - not sure where the cake part was, as it seemed more like a pudding kind of thing. Also delicious, and the coffee came with cute little chocolate swizzle sticks. Yum!
