Really great food and friendly staff. Great Tequila selection. Accommodates large tables well, we were one of three birthday celebrations going on. Kitchen and server accommodated multiple food allergies of our party well. Decor and ambience feels a little dated, but great overall.

Service was terrible, food wasn't great either. Salad was salty and octopus was overcooked. Drinks were good though.

It was very crowded on a Saturday night, which should have been a good sign, but it wasn't. Service was very slow. Pork belly and octopus were overcooked (although the shrimp was actually quite good). It was too noisy to carry out a two-person conversation.

Really enjoyed the meal there. The grilled octopus was terrific, the tuna tartare and the plantains excellent. My son's favorite was the Mexican street corn which I also liked a lot. I'd pass on the sweet potatoes or the shrimp tapas next time, but both were fine. I noticed that a lot of reviews complain about the service, but we had no problems at all.

Great venue for Mother's Day. The Smoked Salmon on tortillas was great. We all had a wonderful time. Perhaps a more Latin music soundtrack, rather than 70's disco would be in order ?

It was our first timing going to Masa & we were really looking forward to it. We started at the bar for a drink first before being seated. There’s nothing I love more than a good margarita but the margaritas here are served in a pint glass which in my opinion ruins the whole drink and didn’t taste great either. When we got seated, it took at least 10 min for our server to acknowledge us & another 5 min just take our drink order finally. It took over 30 min to get our food which we didn’t order much. Our server never checked on us and we finally had to ask someone else for our check. Food was good but after the poor service I still wouldn’t recommend this place.

Masa is always wonderful. Our server was outstanding and suggested we tweak our order to something we would like more, and gave us options - and didn't charge us extra for it! Lovely way to celebrate a birthday. :)

Oh my GOODNESS and the weather was nice enough for us to sit outside and all the DOGS!

We had been here a few times over the past 2 years and were delighted. This experience was lacking. Empanada appetizer was served room temp, not warm as in prior visits. Huevos Rancheros were relatively bland and lacked any flair. Kids plates had no garnish and were poorly presented on the plate, and dropped on the table. Our waitress was patient and friendly, which was the only reason to return.

Pros: We were happy to find a place that would take reservations for Sunday brunch in this area. Several appealing menu selections for each of us. Enjoyed the fact that there were good choices for both vegetarians and carnivores. Good-tasting coffee. Pleasant, reasonably light space. A nice, mixed crowd of diners. Cons: Inconsistent service. Once before, had to wait a really long time to be served. This time, service was well timed and pleasant, but still missed one important item (the entree for one of the four of us). So- come, but don't be in a hurry.

Great choices and the menu changes regularly. Love the shareable small plates, adequate for 4 people.
Love the new chef and the chicken dish which replaced the old brick chicken is fantastic. Shared 5 dishes and all were excellent. Have had the grilled octopus for a second time and it did not disappoint. The wild mushrooms are great. Did not have space to have the enchiladas we had last time.
Will return again.

It was my birthday. I was surprised I had to give a credit card for this restaurant especially after dining there. At first we were the only table and a few others trickled in. But we had to constantly get the servers to order and reorder our drinks several times. Had to ask the host at one point too. And repeatedly asked for the one tv to be put to the Bruins playoff game. There was nobody else there watching TV and unsure why we had to ask repeatedly that and drinks. Just not a very smooth night. Most of my friends had been there for brunch but it had been a while since we had been there. But unsure if anyone will be rushing back. Except for the nachos - those were incredible!!!

This is my fourth and last time at Masa. It took 15 minutes for our server to come greet, took 25 for the food to come out, and not once did anyone come by to refill our water. It also took 10-15 min for us to get our bill. Food was so, so too. It's funny how they have two people at the front seating guests but also have only 2 servers for the whole restaurant on a Saturday.

New menu with a new chef who is very creative. Small plates to share were enough for the three of us.
Smoked chicken enchilada was amazing! Pork belly was delicious and perfectly grilled. Steve was our server and made sure our food came quickly so that we could make it to the theatre. Made great suggestions. Managers were alway around checking on the customer satisfaction. Will go back for sure, although we have been going there for many years, love this menu.

Great Food for Ominvores and Vegans! As I vegan, I find it difficult to eat at Mexican food restaurants, but I was excited to give Masa a try when I saw the menu. I tried the mushroom tacos which were good. I also had the broccoli and the South American dish made with eggplant and carrots. The vegetables were outstanding. My husband had the tapas platter that gives you a sample of every tapa for $10.00! It was a great way to get to try a lot of different things. He had a hard time choosing among the many wonderful sounding entrees. He decided on the oven roasted chicken and he thought it was delicious. Our only complaints were that the service was a little slow and distracted and it is very noisy.

For a Friday night this place was weirdly empty which I was confused by as the menu looked amazing. The food was average and super overpriced for the size. The staff was very inattentive and our waiter added his own tip (20%) to the bill. When asked why the tip was added he got extremely flustered. Would not go back again m, terrible dining experience.
