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.

Sushi was excellent; service was helpful for a couple of newbies. Would highly recommend MASA.

Bad, worse and worst.
Food was really horrible. I just don't get the 5* reviews. I really don't.
Fine dining goers, if you happen to be in Tallahassee, simply stay away from this place.
They put sauces, specifically the sweet ones to mascaraed the tasteless of the proteins behind, either beef, shrimps, fish, you just name it.
Sushi is among the worst I ever tried. You start to look differently at a sushi place when they have some of the big ones, like Amaebi, Uni and, speacially, Toro.
They were totally tasteless, particularly the Toro, that was too cold, extremely cold to the point that it just wouldn't remain in one piece... almost frozen.
They need to train the waiters also. If there's a beer that the client doens't know and ask to have a small sample... why not?
I would simply NOT go back to this place.

The food at Masa is always good. We had a large table of 10 and the service was slower than usual. We made our concert on time so it worked out. I would recommend Masa and it is one of my favorite "go-to" restaurants.

My husband took me here for my birthday, and it was an amazing time! The prices were so reasonable for the quality and portion sizes of the food. From our appetizers, to the sushi, to our entrees, every bite was sensational. The server was kind and prompt. We never had to ask for a thing! We both agreed that Masa will be our new date night spot. Can't wait to try more of the menu.

We had a very nice experience at this restaurant. The waitress was sweet and helpful with the menu. The ambiance was nice and even though we went with our two young boys, it is also appropriate for couples. Will return when visiting Tallahassee again.

Masa does not disappoint; the room is attractive, and the food excellent. We had a dinner reservation for five on an FSU football weekend, when every restaurant in Tallahassee (including Masa) was packed. Arriving a few minutes early, we were cheerfully greeted by the hostess who told us "Your table is all set up, please follow me." Outstanding! Full bar, easy parking, a great range of authentic sushi, and plenty of other choices too.

Took my wife and daughter to Masa for Parents Weekwnd dinner and was very pleased. They have a broad menu to please our varied tastes and the food and service we're top notch. I would definitely return for another meal with my student and family.

Delicious food, great service, good prices. By far our favorite spot in Tallahassee now, can't wait to return! Our dinner was $65, and it included appetizers three rolls (two of which were chef's specialty) and desserts. We didn't drink anything alcoholic, though the menu is quite extensive. The place is really huge, but somehow managed to feel very cozy. I think the best indication of how good it is was the amount of people eating or grabbing take out (dates, friends, families with children, college students)

The old Masa was a much more intimate spot, I guess, since your business has moved down the street, well the attention to detail has moved also, the quality of the food has slipped and last night (FSU vs Bama game) all I and my date heard were the cheers and jeers about the game. Now I understand that Tallahassee is a football town, home of the Noles but I didn't come to a sports bar for my evening meal.

Also the note hung on the door closing early might turn off any potential customers they were on the edge of whether to frequent your business

Our experience was amazing!!!!! I booked this restaurant for my daughter's 18th birthday because she loves this place! The staff was exceptional!!!!!! The Manager worked his magic when our party of 10 became a party of 15+. I recommend this place to any and everyone!!!!! The atmosphere, the food, the service was absolutely perfect for the occasion we were celebrating!!!! And not to mention, after dinner, one of my daughter's balloons flew away & the manager made it his priority to get it down from the ceiling when he didn't have too!!!!! MASA I'd definitely my favorite hands down!!!!!

Our group of 7 went there to celebrate our daughters graduation from FSU. Food was excellent and prices not bad. We did make reservations and had to wait about 15 minutes before getting the table. I was not surprised that they automatically charged us 20% tip, but it would have been nice if it had been stated as such on the menu ( I looked before hand, it was not there).

The original reservation was for 2 but friends fro out of town stopped by. I called the restaurant and easily updated the reservation. Table was ready on arrival and in a quiet location as requested. Service was quick and efficient. All orders arrived together and the food was great! We appreciated the non-disruptive attention from our waiter (Larry) who was attentive but not cloying as in some restaurants. Everyone was totally satisfied with his/her meal.

This meal was incredible, we had several different items including drinks and were extremely happy with everything! We had the Volcano Oysters, Calamari, and Tuna tartar for appetizers. We ordered the Sunrise in NY, KC Cucumber roll, Seared scallop cucumber roll, and my boyfriend had his go-to Spider roll. Several pieces of nigiri including Sea Urchin (glad I tried it but not a fan) finished off the meal. We will ABSOLUTELY come back!

We were visiting Tallahassee, FL for the first time, and wanted to go for a nice dinner. Masa exceeded our expectations! Excellent service and food and perfect atmosphere! Trendy and popular place but not too loud. We also loved our seat in a private booth. Would definitely return and would definitely refer to others!

As soon as you enter you are greeted with a smile and our table was being held. We git there a little early so it was very nice to be seated right away. The waiter was very attentive and we were taken care of quickly. The sushi was fresh a bery good. The main entrees like the chicken teriyaki and mongolian beef were very good. Will go again if in town.

We had lunch for our daughter's graduation celebration. We had a cute little private area with a round table that allowed us to talk and see each other, it was super great. Also our server was wonderful. The food came out quickly and it was delicious and hot.. a biggie for me when there is a larger group and it is very busy. Would recommend for everyone and every occasion.

thank you Kathleen and family
