We were there on a Sunday, fairly early for dinner, it became noisier as it filled up. We would go back. Only the dessert was less than excellent.
Matt has great knowledge of Tequila and was very insightful on his recommendations, the staff put on a good show: service was excellent and the food delicious
My gf & I have gone to Mass countless times. Tuesday at 4 we realized the restaurant was opening & we tried waiting for our 5pm reservation but ened up kicking it at the Bar. Our bartender was doing finishing tasks to open up the bar but got us settled in with drinks within 7mins from when we walked in. He was friendly but served us 2 orders of the wrong tapas. He charged($18) us for both & left off the actual item we had ordered originally off the bill. We over ate because he had told us to keep the 2nd mistake& sent the 3 plate out. Ok cool we paid him waited for our reservation & headed into the dining room at 5pm. The waitress was very friendly & attentive. Ordering the Brick Chicken this time was disappointing, the Mashed Potatoes were ice. I can understand like warm or cooled down but ice cold was unexpected. We paid our bill & made sure We tipped the server for her service. Due to this time we don't believe we will be back for another dinner there. No food actually. Perhaps only drinks.
Service was the high point here. Antonio was our server and he was attentive, gracious, and filled with good recommendations regarding the menu. The quality of food was high with a delicious duck plate, which may have had a little too much Brussel sprout on the plate, but a good portion of duck and an excellent presentation. My wife's chicken enchilada was enjoyed by her and finished by me because of the hearty portion. The value portion took a ding when we reviewed the bill to see that the chips and salsa and the chips and guacamole, served together, were two separate charges. Overall we recommend this restaurant, just be clear on what you are ordering for extras. James
We live in the neighborhood and I realized we should come in more often! The food was delicious - we had the duck and the pork shank (SO much food), the atmosphere was upbeat. After eating we sat at the bar for a drink and the bartenders were helpful and friendly. Overall a great night!
Food was great, service was attentive and proper. Drinks were also top notch and was nice to see a fair serving of a margarita instead of those tiny glasses.
Nice selection of Latin American foods. Corn chowder was outstanding. Both pork dishes delish! The non-standard margaritas were a little strange. The dining room was spacious and open but it felt a little too big on a very cold night. We wanted it to be more cozy. No regrets! We will go back.
First visit and will make this one of our hot spots from now on - the staff were great, start to finish and the food was simply sublime!
Great brunch deal! 2 courses for under $10 a piece.
The service was a little slow but that’s only because they were understaffed. Antonio was a fantastic waiter and did his best. The food was delicious and the overall experience was great! Would definitely return and definitely recommend it!
Enjoyed a great breakfast at Masa! The breakfast burrito and eggs benedict were amazing!! The waiter was attentive and made great recommendations. Friendly staff.
Food was excellent. Waiter was attentive and provided details on the menu items that were very helpful and made great recommendations! Will definitely return!
Excellent Latin American/American fusion with well balanced flavors and great Margaritas
Overpriced average food
Awesome brunch. The Bloody Mary was a bit wild for me with all the herbs and spices floating around but I can see how others might love it. Everything was nice except we had to sit near the door which meant we froze every time someone came in it left
Great place to dine out with family! Wish they had a vestibule though because if they seat you too close to the door during winter, it gets super chilly.
Food was tasty, but bordered on cold. Ambience was nice. Service was unfortunately rushed, with plates appearing within minutes of being ordered and being cleared as soon as our forks were down— not appropriate for a moderately expensive restaurant.
As usual, Masa's brunch does not disappoint. Great brunch cocktails, great Mexican-inspired brunch. Portions are good-sized and the free cornbread prior to the meals is amazing.
This place has been terrific since it opened in 1999. Food has always been consistent and delicious. I've been going to Masa for many years, and have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. They hit the nail on the head when they developed the concept for Masa. Bravo to the late Phil Aviles, and to all of those who work to fulfill his vision. I think he would be proud.
We love coming here, food is great and great value
Staff is super friendly and accommodating
Delicious food! We ordered the duck and the chicken enchiladas. The duck was so tender and flavorful. We also ordered a sangria margarita and a spicy blackberry margarita that wasn’t really spicy at all, but both great and strong! The food is a bit overpriced to go back multiple times, but we enjoyed our date night at Masa.
Amazing brunch food. Really great service from our waiter. Will definitely go back!
Similar to our prior brunch experience, our dinner dining experience was excellent as well. We tried the crispy octopus and tuna tartare as appetizers and shared the pork shank with white beans and roasted sweet potato for our entree; all dishes were outstanding. The margarita with chile-infused tequila was good but a bit heavy on the lime. Our waitress was knowledgeable regarding the menu and attentive. Masa has now been added to our list of go-to restaurants in the South End.
Delicious food, great service, and perfect ambience!
Loved this restaurant! Great, cozy atmosphere with fabulous menu. Many unique cocktails choices. This is a hidden gem - will definitely go back!
Our experience was good but I think table clothes would take this place to the next level. The food is good enough. It feels like a taco bar now, which is unfair to the chef. Pork shank was outstanding. Duck was very good. Keep up the good work.
Normally I love this restaurant, but this time, it was disappointing. The service was really bad - it was as if the staff had newly turned over and they didn't know what they were doing. Lots of wait staff just standing around while we waited 10 minutes to be asked what we wanted to drink - and then had to wave frantically for someone to come back to ask if we wanted another drink, which we did. It was disappointing.
I love this restaurant! The decor is great and super cozy, and the food is mega YUMMY. Both their dinner and brunch menus are amazing!
What a disappointment. We used to eat here years ago. Haven't been in a long time. It is definitely not the same. The food was mediocre at best. The drinks from the bar were terrible. The place was empty. Now I know why. It is not the same Masa that it used to be.
It is a great place for brunch. They should increase the options in the kids menu and include healthy options for kids.
