Masu is probably the most consistent restaurant in the Twin Cities, largely to low staff turn over and a friendly head chef who is a staple at the sushi bar. Although Rona has the menu reduced, everything still being served is made with the same fresh ingredients and care. Been dozens of times and never disappointed! Yum!!!!

Sticky Buns with Tempura Shrimp were outstanding. Waitress was very understanding on food preferences. Food was served one course at a time, which was perfect. Very enjoyable evening.

Masu is one of our neighborhood favorites. This was our first time back dining inside since the shutdown (COVID) and everything was delicious. They have taken every precaution to create a safe dining experience, so we look forward to coming back soon.

It seemed like I’ve had way better quality in the past.
Covid 19 sucks, I’m not sure if the menu was slimmed down, but I remember having more choices.
Overall we had a good experience, it just seemed like maybe the food could have been better/more fresh?

Service was great!! Cocktails were a ginger margarita--flavorful with a little heat at the end, delicious! Pork belly steamed buns, Yakisoba with pork belly, Firecracker Uramaki, all worth having again. Complimentary sake completed a wonderful meal. Definitely will repeat soon!!

We made reservations and once we were seated it took 25 minutes for a server to even look at our table. There were about five tables around us that were being served, including a table that was seated at the same time as we were, but we got missed.
Menu is very small right now, call in advance to make sure they have what you're looking for.
Food was good once we got it.

A big round of applause to the chefs! They deserve a big tip! The chefs greet you and say goodbye as you leave, AND serve you your sushi (which by the way is phenomenal.) The servers themselves seemed like they didn’t want to be there though. The food and atmosphere was great. Only downside is expect to spend over 100$ for two people it’s very spendy!

Great food as always. Cocktails by Erin were spot on. Our server was delightful.
The patio is on a main road and there was a frequent smoker standing on the corner off and on through a good chunk of our meal but overall, happy to be back!

We made a patio reservation and were very happy with our decision. People were spaced out nicely if dining inside the restaurant or on the patio. Food and variety of dishes available was outstanding as usual. Beer selection was ok. They had some fun rotating options but the only IPA option was Surly Furious, which isn't my favorite. Would like to see more local options with more variety.

Food wasn’t as good as I’ve experienced in past. Given the Covid circumstances I’m not too concerned that it won’t get back on par once some normalcy returns!

Nice job of handling the patio during this time of modified opening. Everything was done well with employees and customers health being a primary concern. Food was enjoyed by all three of us.

Normally we've had a great experience here. But this time the wait for the food was extremely long. The restaurant wasn't that busy, so we were surprised. The food was good as it normally is. However, we were disappointed with the length of time it took to get our food.

The manager did come over and comp us a couple of drinks as an apology, which was nice.

We went for Valentine’s Day. With the busy holiday in mind, it was quite noisy and busy. The service was kind and quick. We didn’t have to worry about our 2 hour parking expiring. We had a good time and enjoyed the delicious food.

Late seating for a reservation followed by nobody coming to help us for 15-20 minutes for drinks or orders. Ended up leaving without eating. Have been there in the past with good food but service as terrible. Will not being back.

I had made a note on my reservation that I needed to eat Gluten Free for Celiacs, and was very pleased when the host immediately offered me the GF menu. Not as reassured, however, after I ordered the shrimp skewer from that menu and they served it with non-GF sauce so that I had to send it back. She did check to see if the pickles had gluten, too. So, I chanced it, since we had made the trip down there specifically because they advertise their GF menu, but am not certain it truly was safe for me (do they make the GF rolls and food on the same counters as the regular stuff? Not clear from menu, servers, or website). My husband really enjoyed his udan bowl, and our friend liked the sushi he ordered, as well. Mine tasted just fine, but I just don't know that I want to keep paying a la carte prices for things I can't be sure aren't glutening me. Probably better for others without this limitation.

Always pleased by Masu. Usually get the Omakase for 2 and i've never been disappointed. Come for the sushi, stay for the Steam Buns.
