Asian
Located in trendy Midtown, Masa is venerable Tallahassee restaurateur Lucy Ho's upscale enterprise. The Asian-fusion menu offers a creative, modern blend of Eastern and Western cuisines. A dinner favorite is the Chilean sea bass. In its casually elegant space,
the restaurant's sushi bar also is popular.
Try the tuna tartar with avocado on crispy wonton skins for lunch.

Masa is a great Asian-inspired seafood and sushi restaurant. Masa offers an elegant and stylish
dining experience in a serene setting that reflects its Asian influence.

My husband and I arrived at 6:30 for a Tuesday night dinner and were glad we had a reservation. Unbeknownst to us it was Tuna Tuesday, which is a very popular event - so the restaurant was packed. We were able to eat outside, which was very pleasant. While it took a while for the food to arrive, our server was excellent. She kept us apprised of the progress of our meal, filled drinks, and was generally very pleasant. My grilled garlic sesame glazed salmon was delicious. My husband enjoyed his crispy tuna roll and pad thai with tofu. Will definitely return, but probably not on Tuna Tuesday!

The ambiance and the service were excellent.We came due to the appealing menu.The food was unbelievably bland and tasteless. Very disappointing.Interestingly,the restaurant was fairly busy.Locals must think it's good?

We had a reservation for 6 and they had it down as 2 people. The food took an hour and 30 minutes to bring. A table of 6 who sat down and ordered after us finished their food before we got ours. Managers were very rude when I asked for our food. On top of that, one of the waitress forgot to put in one of the entrees and one of us was without food until everyone finished. They brought it very late and still charged us. Service is so bad.

I've been to Masa many times and it is a go-to favorite of mine mostly for the food but also because of the very quiet and intimate booths. Last night was fine except the server forgot to bring out the curry sauce with my guests lamb chops. More attention to detail would prevent this in the future.

Coconut curry beef is a must eat. Sushis are really good too. Spring rolls I think it was the weakest link.

Price/Value is so good to be true. A must-visit spot.

We love coming to MASA for work lunches. Almost every time we come with more than 4 people (this time was 8), it takes a long time to get food. Our server was attentive when it came to drinks but seemed distracted while taking orders and couldn't remember who ordered what when she came back to bring us the food. I asked for regular soy sauce and never received it. She set my appetizer down in front of my boss across from me and he started eating them because he wasn't there when I ordered and thought it was for the table. I'll continue to come to MASA because I love the food. Just wish the large parties were taken care of just as well as the smaller ones.

I had reservations at 7pm and got their a couple minutes, however, they didn't seat us until maybe 10 after 7. It took quite some time for the waiter, Oliver, to take our drink orders and even more time for him to come back with them. I've had him one other time prior and he was fantastic so maybe he was just overwhelmed at first.
I asked how the surf and turf was because at Azu it's spectacular and the waiter made it seem like they put this big piece of filet mignon on top, but when I got it, the roll was so tiny! And for $15... I get more food when I order a Dirty Harry or any of the dragon rolls for much cheaper!
As for the atmosphere, it wasn't bad at all per usual. They accommodated the extra seating like requested and further into the night, Oliver was more attentive.

We visited Masa for a graduation celebration. We had a reservation for party of 7 and were seated promptly. Everyone was so friendly. Food was delicious. Our server, Oliver, was amazing. It's not often that a server exceeds my expectations. We will most definitely return to Masa when in Tallahassee again, and will be sure to ask for Oliver!

Masa has good food and is reasonably priced. Oddly the waitress kept coming over asking if we needed a to go box and the check long before we were done eating. Most trendy restaurants do not bring the check or doggie bag/box to the table until it’s requested by the patron. Other than that it was overall a good experience.

My group had a reservation for prom. They did everything in there power to try to move people along and get tables paid out so we could get a table ASAP. The service was really good especially considering that it was a busy night considering it was graduation and prom.

It was a really busy night on Saturday as it was graduation. We had a great Server. We were sat down right away. Food came out I. A timely fashion. All of our meals were good, no complaints. We were there for my son’s birthday. They brought the cake out for us and made his birthday memorable.

Our server was incredibly slow. We were seated at our table 10-15 minutes ahead of diners sitting around us. We were last to get drinks (no ice on a warm night), last to order and last to get food (not hot). We would have loved some sauces to go with our meal and none were offered. We would have loved ice in our drinks even if it was just water.
