I’ve been to so many great sushi places. This space just felt weird to me. I wasn’t impressed by the space (cold) and looked like a quick renovated office space and the food was nothing special. People were friendly though. Just not what I’m looking for.

Due to another party being “long” at our table, we weren’t sat at our reservation time, but our party was relaxed with no place to be, so we were happy in the lounge while we waited. The service was attentive, prompt, and helpful. If I could give higher ratings for service, I would. That service remained high at the table as well. Thanks, Masu Sushi!!!

What a fabulous dining experience as we celebrated with family. Service was very attentive. Our waitress was so helpful in describing each of the items we had questions about. She offered a few of her favorites as well. The presentation of several of the sushi selections was so colorful and aesthetically pleasing. Great drink selections with beer and creatively mixed cocktails.
Loved that the parking was easy to locate and free stamp with the meal. Thank you for the memorable experience.

It was a birthday dinner. There were 6 of us. From the moment we got there the service was surly, like they didn’t care whether we were there or not. We waited a half hour for our table, even though we had reservations! Didn’t get much better after that. They forgot one of our dishes we ordered. Once we got to our table they slapped down the several different kinds of menus and walked away. No explanation. We finally got to order drinks, and much later got to order food. We spent 2 1/2 hours in a sushi restaurant 😳. Sorry we bothered you that night.

The food was absolutely amazing. The calamari far surpassed the typical fried variety found at most sushi places, and instead was a lovely texture with a sweet/savory balanced flavor. Sushi was excellent, favoring fresher ingredients like ginger and cucumber that were crisp. Sake was great as well, and definitely worth spending a little extra. A small bottle was the perfect sharing size.

My first experience here was with my teen age son and we both loved it. It was a Friday lunch and he said "Mom, this is my new go-to sushi spot in Portland." We loved the calamari best of all - delicate like pasta and slightly spicey. The restaurant during the day is cozy and bright and there are dozens of nice touches to the decor - simple yet elegant. We then invited our foodie friends to join us for a weeknight last minute get together. The ambiance is upscale, but coze.
Our table shared sushi (must try the the death by sushi roll and the many cleverly named rolls are on our bucket list) and the plated dishes (a great option for the gluten intolerant and the vegetarian) Even the sides were delightful. Thumbs up all around.

I will return because I've heard great things about Masu. Unfortunately we were a little disgruntled with the service. Took 20 minutes before order was taken. Another 35 before food arrived. When we got there, the restaurant was far from full. The quality of the food was good, and the ambiance very good. We'll try again another time.

very good service, great customer service, from host desk to end of the meal. We sat at Sushi Bar, the chefs were fantastic. we had a fun and enjoyed time chatting, joking and learning about various Fish, their origin, slicing and knives used to cut fish. Even learned how to pronounce MISO the correct way and the meal, outstanding.

There was lipstick stain on the glass they brought me and the waitress didn’t actually order the nigiri we orderd on the sheet. Out of all the items she did order, one item never came. The sushi roll was good but the ramen is very over cooked.

I really enjoy their sushi (the Chirashi bowl being my favorite dish). But the rest is just okay. The environment is a bit hit or miss, if you sit by the window you might get really cold and in some of the central tables it gets really noisy because of the high ceilings and the configuration of the room. Also, they just raised their prices by 15-20%. Masu is no longer going to be my first option for sushi.

Absolutely awful. Service was non-existent. 15min elapsed before we even got water.
My sushi eventually arrived even though the server failed to mention that the Uni I ordered was unavailable. My wife's simple salad & gyoza order came 30min later. The unfriendly server blamed the kitchen's delay on the full moon. There was peeling paint @plate level by our table. THIS RESTAURANT S/B CLOSED ASAP!!!!!

Erin our waitress was wonderful, fun from the beginning, greeted by a little blonde who took our picture and was fun to joke with. Wish they had more on the menu with 10 pieces, like Death by Sushi, which was very good.

Expensive and just OK. The Chinook salmon sashimi was a standout but for 22 dollars for 7 pieces with no rice, it was a bit pricey. The sushi rolls were mediocre and not very flavorful. The seaweed salad was, again, expensive and not all that tasty. Not impressed with the food for the price.
