The food is great, but the cost is really steep. A bowl of Chirasi with like 12 pieces of sashimi and some rice is $34. Portland is competitive, Masu is not. I'd rather fractionally lower the quality and get a price point that matches. I don't mind a $50 plate, when it's worth it. I just don't like paying 50 for something I should have paid 40 for. Presentation is good, fish is fresh, servers are nice. Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired.

Masu Sushi (and Bamboo Sushi) are places I've frequented for years. Sustainable sushi served up with good vibes. Great for power lunches!

Third visit to Masu since moving to Portland and love it. Good selection of maki and creative rolls. Service is very friendly and welcoming. Easy parking. We will be back and highly recommend to others.

This is a great restaurant for Japanese small plates and really good cocktails. A very nice ambience - cozy on a rainy evening.

Why do people go out? For an exceptional dining experience delivered in a welcoming atmosphere. That is what happens at Masu Sushi! You can order in bits and pieces . You can order a traditional meal. It is all good.

Food was not worth the price. Miso soup was extremely salty and meat on our fried rice was tough and tasteless. Waiter was inattentive and dropped check on the table before we had finished our meal.

The varied and just-creative-enough menu combined with the cool location make this the perfect ‘insiders’ spot NOT a touristy let-down! Unique twists on solid favorites in a chic and comfortable space. My go-to fave for sure!!

We had a larger party (9) and everyone felt very well taken care of, from gluten accommodations (the waitress came back to run down the order to make sure) to sakè pointers and extra, later, orders.
Wonderful service and food, I would completely recommend the spot and eat there again.

Was seated 30 minutes late. Then took 15 minutes to get our drinks. Food took over an hour to get. We saw people get seated after us get food and pay before we got our food. Wait staff never asked of we wanted more food or drinks.

Hello ! My wife and I had a reservation for two at 8pm. We showed up at the hostess stand at 8pm sharp. We managed a place to sit and wait by about 8:25pm (standing before that)... we received a drink (offered on arrival) at 8:52pm, and ended up seated at a table at 9:14pm.

After that the service was immaculate and the food was fantastic !

I would say don't offer reservations if that is the best you can do with honoring them...

Hope to dine with you again but will think twice about coming at busy times.

The food was very good to excellent. We had sushi, real wasabi, miso, and edamame. We also had a small bottle of excellent sake (Watari Bune). The staff were efficient but relaxed and fun to talk to. We never lacked for water or attention. The only issue was the time it took to for our food to arrive. Almost an hour. Turns out the third sushi chef was out that night slowing the process. Had we known that when we ordered we might have gotten a small plate our two to tide us over. The manager was kind enough to give us a break on the bill due to the wait. Beautiful decor. Great location. They have an elevator in case the stairs are an issue.

Love the dull sake menu. We usually order cocktails because they are so good here but this time we ordered a bottle of sake. It was excellent. The food is always fresh. One of my favorites is the oysters (the best I have ever had) and the volcano roll.

This is the second time I've returned to Masu and I can't wait to come back again! They have a fantastic variety of roll options, but my personal favorite is the Death by Sushi. WOW is it incredible! I highly recommend this for a date night, girls night out, or just if you're in the mood for some authentic sushi.
