My husband and I finally had a chance to return to Mas after the restaurant reopened and are delighted to confirm that it's as excellent as it has ever been. The room is still warm and inviting in an elegant rustic style with comfortable seating. We had the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing for me. Every course was delicious and artfully presented and the wines were terrific! The sommelier chooses the wines well to complement the food and describes them wonderfully. Service continues to be impeccable and highly personable.

I love tasting menus. Mas was the second place we had gone for our anniversary week. Such a disappointment. Out of the 8 dishes we tried (each had one of the 4 course tasting menu) only two were good. None were substantial. Main Waitress was rude. Some dishes tasted like they were pulled from the fridge with a stale taste. With tip and one wine pairing it cost over $300. Not worth it.

I never made it to Mas (Farmhouse) prior to the fire, but its reputation was stellar. After dinner last night, all I can say is that if it was as good as it was billed before, it has risen again from the ashes like an inspired Phoenix. Easily one of the best meals I’ve ever had. From the knowledgeable and attentive staff to the gorgeous menu (the six course chef’s menu), to the chic styling, this was a perfect meal. Don’t miss it.

Underwhelming for the price. Nothing Memorable. Service and presentation were good but unfortunately the food and desserts were not worth returning for. Lobster and Trout were the best parts of our tasting menu but the rest was pretty mediocre.

We had not eaten here since it reopened. We all loved it. Great wait staff. An adult restaurant which is not easy to find these days. How nice it was to dine with friends and not have to scream to talk to the person next to you.

Great meal. Restaurant had a great homely feel - seasonal food, friendly interested staff, calming decor - but still retains a feeling of being special. The menu is very varied with some very interesting combinations. There were a number of things we wanted to try.
Would definitely go back.

Our first trip to Mas (farmhouse). The food was very well prepared, interesting, and very seasonal. The menu is focused but highly flexible and they are extremely accommodating. We were impressed not just with the taste, but also the varied textures of many of the dishes. The portion sizes are generous and shareable. The service was outstanding. Overall a delicious and enjoyable meal.

The Food is good but not worth that high price. And i don't understand the rush. Our plates came when we didn't even had our wine yet. So please give the guests some time. Also in between the courses. We felt rushed, to be honest.

Yes, it was our first visit to Mas but not our first time eating at a restaurant. So, the exhaustive explanation of what a tasting menu is was, well, exhausting. And the fact that our server ignored my polite cues to stop his " canned" recitation became annoying. But I did settle down with the first sip of my perfectly prepared negroni. Unfortunately, the pleasure was short lived due to a 40 minute wait for our 1st course. Although my octopus terrine with a verjus gellee was not very satisfying, a taste of my wife's golden beets with goat cheese raised my confidence in the kitchen. We appreciated the chestnut soup offered as a token of appeasement even if my wife declined it. The tasty duck breast was cooked to my requested med-well temp but the highlight of the plate was the confit leg sausage. Too bad there was only enough for two small bites. So, all said and done: it's unlikely that we'll return. Too bad all 'round.

We missed this restaurant over the past year while they were closed to due to fire and were thrilled they are still the special place it has always been - stellar service, decor, and top notch cuisine. Don't miss the corn soup with scallop, halibut or duck. Mas remain a gem in the West Village.

However, I was VERY disappointed in the food - we ordered the four course tasting menu and -out of the eight courses - only one was interesting and the rest were very bland, almost tasteless.
There are obviously a lot of other restaurants in the city - go to one of them.

My husband and I went to Mas for dinner on a Sunday night. I'm sure this is part of the reason that it was so quiet, but we loved it! Every aspect was outstanding: friendly staff, knowledgeable waiter, creative food choices that were as flavorful as the descriptions led us to believe.
It is a pricey restaurant, but if you are looking for a very special place to enjoy and outstanding meal, Mas would be a great choice!

This weekend was my first visit to Mas in quite a while. I recall liking it very much the first time I dined there. This latest visit was much less successful.

Upon entering the back dining room, my dining companion and I were met with a strange odor that I immediately associated with a restroom. (My companion made the same association as well.)

I love a leisurely meal, but we waited nearly an hour for someone to take our order. Then, after placing our order for the four-course tasting menu, our dishes arrived in a bam-bam-bam fashion that made it seem as if they were urgently trying to turn the table (even though our reservation was for 9:15 p.m.).

The most appalling aspect of the evening was the wine list. The four-course tasting menu was priced at $92 per person -- perfectly fine. In my book, having a bottle of wine priced around $100 should be perfectly acceptable for such a meal. The only problem is that the wine list includes barely a handful of wines at $100 or under. The Bourgogne section for the red wines listed 20-30 wines (if I recall correctly) but only five or so under $100. Momentarily, I actually felt a bit cheap for ordering a $95 bottle, but my momentary embarrassment eventually settled into annoyance and anger. The wine list, in short, is obnoxious.

The food was uneven. My first course -- a sweet corn soup with a single scallop -- was stupendous. The halibut was flavorful but very nearly overcooked, and the pork crepinette was tasty but nothing special.

The cheese plate I ordered was a complete hoot -- three minuscule dollops of cheese surrounded by droppings of various fruits and compotes.

In short, a disappointing evening. If you're a Wall Street, media or Silicon Valley type with lots of money to burn, then go for it. Mas may be the place for you. If you are a comfortably well off New Yorker looking for a special evening, there are countless places in the city where you could do much better.

I finally found a real good quality restaurant in New York! The kind of restaurant you feel happy, the mouth full of good flavors and without the feeling of having eaten too much. I strongly recommend it for a special occasion. Each of us got the four courses menu, 1 cocktail and we share a bottle of wine for 2. It was just perfect! It deserves the cost.
