We picked Masu as the first restaurant we went to once fully vaccinated, so that should tell you all you need to know.

Masu is still our fav place to go to when we’re craving sushi!
Their “steam” rolls are addicting & this time I ordered the crunchy Pork Belly.

Masu is one of my favorite places to go with friends. Love the sushi. I miss the special touches like warm washcloths but the sushi doesn’t dissapoint

Went to Masu for a birthday celebration, just my immediate family. This was the first time we dined at a restaurant in over a year - since the start of the pandemic. Maus’s always been a favorite, and they lived up to our expectations and memories of past meals. Between the sushi rolls, the steamed buns and the pork belly, it was out of this world!

We love it there so much! If I were to make a critique, it would be that the space is probably due for some upkeep. The beautiful photos are starting to peel off of the wall and general deterioration is taking place. The food is always beautiful and the service is so great!

The sushi was amazing. We requested the Itamae, Sushi Master Chef, create our rolls. He made five different rolls that were beautiful and melted in our mouths. The seafood included salmon, shrimp, scallops, tuna, and "Chef's choice" was absolutely amazing. The service was amazing!

Usually it is a great place to eat but the last time I was there I didn’t feel good after so maybe the food wasn’t fresh.

A memorable meal. Our third meal here, and we decided to learn their menu a bit more, as Masu was becoming our go-to sushi restaurant, for when we could venture out. We were well rewarded! We were able to meet the two robata chefs and get their recommedations: spicy miso momo chicken thighs and ginger beef, both on skewers, with both bursting with flavor and kick, and both excellent. We had the duck potstickers again, because we've been day dreaming about them since our last visit. We weren't too close to the sushi bar, but we saw Executive Sushi Chef Katsuyuki (Asan) come a bit near our table on some errand, and we approached and introduced ourselves and received his recommendations for the evening: some extra fatty scottish salmon toro with ponzu, topped with a slice of avocado, and an order of buttery escolar delicately garnished with fermented lemon peper (yuzu kosho). They were both outstanding. We repeated the poke futomaki from our last visit, and it didn't disappoint. I had the scallops (hotategai) which were very fresh and lightly garnished with grated lemon: one of my favorite 'guys' (with mirugai, torigai, hokkigai), but only when very fresh, as it was here. The extra little touches of expert garnish distinguish the master chef-led staff from other places that we have enjoyed meals. Masu only serves responsibly fished non-endangered species, but there is no shortage of yummy flavors available. Our served Lina was very helpful and knowledgeable, and also helped guide us with some great choices. Highly recommended. Asan is a true Ryōri-chō (master chef), but both kind (a freebie desert platter at the end), and friendly. We could not have had a better experience.

They were able to seat us early for our date on a busy Saturday evening. Food was very good. We were disappointed that the food menu was so limited compared to what it used to be. Overall would go again.

Masu is consistently really a great place to have good sushi. The staff are friendly and attentive. As with all restaurants during this time, Take out has become a huge portion of their time and business. Although I’m very happy that they have enough business to keep open and running smoothly, and I continue with my contributions, the feeling / experience of dining out is different. I miss the older, familiar, ambience of pre Covid Masu as with all the cities other great establishments.
Therefore, I gave 4 stars instead of 5. It’s just the times!

We had a nice variety of food - seaweed salad, fried spring rolls, shrimp tempura steamed buns, a specialty ramen, and yakisoba noodles with tofu. We were too full after all of that to order the sushi rolls we had planned on getting. My favorites were the fried spring rolls and the yakisoba. We plan on going back and getting sushi next next.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience for a sushi date night. Our server was absolutely amazing, attentive to our needs, and very kind. The sushi was good and displayed nicely on the plate. We only ordered the sushi but they had a variety of other food options which sounded good. Definitely recommend the Sebastian Joes Raspberry Chocolate Chip icecream! Overall we had a wonderful night and great experience!

We love Masu and are regular customers, more so before the pandemic. This latest visit became a bit concerning when it seemed that more than 50% capacity was reached while we were there. They were seating people in the booths directly on either side of us so there was no 6 ft of separation there - and lots of people began waiting inside, so clearly over capacity there. Those would be my only concerns.
