Service was not very prompt. Our main course was very slow - over 30 minutes with no explanation at first (they explained and sent over a complimentary appetizer) to produce the special sashimi we ordered. It was excellent. We were seated close to another table with animated conversation - not a particularly romantic setting but quite authentic. I would go again for the food quality - but would also tell them if I had a show to go to or other deadline.

We usually just order our favourite sushi dishes but I'd decided to go out on a limb and try the 5 course featured dinner for Valentines day. It was too much food for me and a little out of my comfort zone. My wife ordered her favourite sushi and loved it. I would recommend the wine by the glass be an ounce or two larger, and proper wine glasses be used. Service was excellent.

I can see why Masaki was voted best restaurant in Niagara on The Lake. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. Love the fresh atmosphere and service excellent. Highly recommend

Ventured out in storm with our special quest from LA, California and were thoroughly pleased with absolutely everything. On par with the best Japanese restaurants found in Vancouver or LA. While our review on service and noise level is highly a result of only one other couple in the entire restaurant, I feel I would certainly be patient on slower service if they were extremely busy as the food is well worth the wait.

Love authentic Japanese cuisine! What I like more is that the seating and atmosphere is upscale great for a night out with friends or a loved one. Yet the pricing is reasonable, and the food is fresh, and they do not forgo ingredients.

Phenomenal quality and service! Tried the Masaki roll and sashimi dinner and both were wonderful - it was so nice to try different kinds of sashimi we’d never had before. They were out of a few things because we came just after the holidays so we’re excited to come back next time we’re in the area so we can try the premium sashimi and oysters. Our server was very knowledgeable and lovely as well.

Best Sushi ever, premium fish from Tokyo, they hand grind their own wasabi, the rice is different, the green tea ice cream was not bitter like usual, the server even explains what the dish is and what everything is. Amazing place, if you think Mine sushi is the best... Your gonna have a good time here

A real gem in the heart of Niagara. The sushi looked excellent but I had the beef udon special and my husband the beef curry special because it was freezing outside and we needed to warm up. The beef udon stock was excellent and a reasonable quantity but the beef itself was chopped into tiny little bits and although it was supposed to be tenderloin, they were a bit chewy. Same issue with the beef curry. However, we will definitely be back to sample other items on the menu, because the basis of a good Japanese restaurant was definitely there. We also found it rather expensive but then again, so is everything in NOTL! Service was wonderful.

This was our fifth time dinning at Masaki. Their quality of fish never disappoints me and we were especially lucky last night as a new shipment just arrived from Japan! My mom is a picky eater and she gave the assorted seafood in a hot stone pot on rice a perfect 10/10. Server was vey attentive and patient with our questions. Will definitely come back again!

The restaurant decor is modern and simple. Its staff is courteous. I had requested for a quite spot to allow for good conversations since it was for my date night out with my husband, as soon as we arrived we were led to the quietest and most private spot in the restaurant. I appreciate they paid attention to my request and honor it.

I live in Toronto and eat at Japanese restaurants regularly and found their fish quality to be way better than most places in Toronto. I did not expect that level of quality for a Japanese restaurant in Niagara On the Lake.

We were also introduced to how to drink plum wine the Japanese way and how Japanese would fry fish bones as snacks (we tried it at no charge and it was absolutely delicious). That was a bonus new experience for us.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner experience there a lot and would highly recommend.

Memorable meal that is was so good on so many levels. We ordered sashimi dinner, black cod, tempura udon and spider roll. The sashimi was fresh and the makeral and salmon belly stand outs on the plate. The cod was cooked to perfection, the broth was incredible. Will go back again! Every dish was outstanding.
