Very overpriced imho. Noise level was higher than expected (we were unfortunately seated next to a very loud table of 6). I didn't care for the menu either. Bottom line .... I expected so much more at this price point. And I have received more at other venues.

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.

I don't know what happened but the restaurant we used to enjoy has become a poor replica of itself. As nice and cozy as ever but very disappointing food (over cooked and under seasoned halibut for instance) and horrible prices. Won't be returning.

The service was amazing, very attentive without being intrusive.

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.

Welcome back! We missed the old Mas when it closed after a fire, as it was a good grownup restaurant for excellent food and quiet conversation. The new Mas has some tweaks - the decor is same style but a little fresher, the awkward restrooms have been restyled, menu is pared down - but the good stuff remains. The only slightly less impressive factor is the service, which was friendly and knowledgeable but a little reactive rather than proactive. We waited almost 10 minutes to order drinks after the menus were dropped, water was refilled only once at the very end of the meal, we had to make eye contact to flag a server to order wine before the entrees arrived. Food is pricey but well portioned.

FANTASTIC!
Mas Farmhouse reopened in it's old space after a renovation. It was always full when we tried to go before the renovation, so we went to it's now closed sister restaurant Mas Grillade. Our dinner was surreal - beautiful dining room, unobtrusive but knowledgable servers (including floor staff), but of course it's the food that really counts and that was perfect. Unusual sauces and garnishes, super-fresh fish and shellfish, local ingredients . The seasonal tasting menu was well-priced and not overwhelming in volume. Amazing and unusual cocktails. And desserts.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Mas with friends and it was very good. Unfortunately for us we were seated between two very noisy tables and we had to shout to be heard. Our dinners were very good and Mas is a place in the Village for a special meal. We will return and I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special place to enjoy a fine meal in the Village.

My companion and I were happy to discover that Mas had reopened. The space is as genteel as before and the staff even more pleasant and professional. I am sorry to say I was disappointed by the food. The fluke tartare was an elegant construction of herbs and vegetables with the fish, but had very little taste beyond that of the fish itself. The roasted wild striped bass was delicious at first bite, but the taste seemed to fade away after that. My companion's roasted monkfish in mushroom stew, on the other hand, was very good.

Mas has consistently been our favorite restaurant in New York City, and we are so happy it's back after a fire last year! The menu has some old favorites (like the tuna l'occidental) and wonderful new dishes, which created a perfect four-course meal. They continue to generously cater to my food allergy, and my experience never suffers from it. Every bite and sip was terrific, and the service and ambience are perfection.
