Was outstanding. Im from Toronto used to good sushi and this was better. We were celebrating our anniversary and chose this restaurant based on reviews. They even delivered us a special anniversary treat and amazing saki.
Highly recommend.

Outstanding. Quality of food rivalled any of the fancy and expensive restaurants in Niagara but the unpretentious and casual vibe made it so much more fun and accessible. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Try the saki cocktails.

Amazing restaurant! I went for me and my partner's anniversary and reserved for the 4-course Omakase option, which I didn't regret at all. They provided a variety of dishes that all tasted and looked amazing and was very filling! Definitely will go again someday when I'm around the Niagara area.

We had an awesome meal at Masaki with friends who were trying sushi for the very first time. Our waitress was fantastic and did an exceptional job explaining the Saki flights we ordered. We will definitely eat there again when we come to town next year.

This was not quality sushi. The rice was sticky and had that plastic chewy taste. The yam roll was cold, when it should have been hot. And the salmon roll was all chopped up, looked like it had been to war. This was not quality, nor worth the $87 for 4 rolls.

I would like to give Masaki a 10 out of 5 rating! Probably the best dining experience in my life in Canada. The food quality was better than top notch (A5 graded Wagyu - come on!), the preparation was professional like you only see in Japan, the dishes (plates) were authentic, the presentation was perfect, the wait staff was very happy, courteous, knowledgeable and quick.
Worth every $! Put Masaki at the top of your list for a special occasion.

Absolutely amazing food. The miso soup was nice and light tasting. The house made soy sauce had great flavour and wasn’t burning your mouth wth salt like most do. I highly recommend the seaweed salad and gyoza, both were the best I’ve ever tasted. The maki was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Our server Stacey was very friendly and kind and did an amazing job. We will definitely be going back. This place is well worth it.

Need to book ahead to avoid long waiting. There is a long descending stairs, may not be convenient for some people. The food was good, price on the higher end but acceptable. Overall pleasant experience.

Excellent selection of top quality, fresh sushi and beverages. Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and delicious! Service was impeccable and this restaurant provides excellent value for money. Small number of tables during COVID, so reservations are definitely recommended. This was one of the best meals we had in NOTL!

Consistently fresh food. We come from Burlington for our favourite sushi at Masaki. I love the variety. It’s always a great meal. The staff is so attentive and friendly. COVID regulations were being effectively followed. There was sanitizer on your way in, at every table and in the washroom. Everyone was wearing their mask properly. We will be back again soon.

Absolutely outstanding. This was our second time back, by far the best sushi I have ever had. Service was quick and very friendly. A small, intimate restaurant perfectly suited for Covid dining. This is the place to go if you are looking for a quiet lunch or dinner, while still being right by all the stores at Niagara-on-the-Lake.

What a difference a pandemic makes!
A true oasis of Japanese culture turned into a nice ward at a hospital. All the flowers, warmth , and stately service were put away.
But the food and artistic arrangement puts it all back if you don‘t lookup.
The staff were very helpful although I get the impression most are new.
It still is my favourite Japanese restaurant south of the GTA. I might just wait a few more weeks till the powers that be, let them return to normal.

Likely the best Sushi I’ve had in my travels. Right from the salad with the ginger dressing to the Miso soup to start. To the rolls and house made soy. Crisp vegetables in the rolls and soft buttery avocado, proteins and sauces were amazing. Lunch special was at a price we couldn’t pass up.
4 rolls 2 soups and a salad. Beer and ginger tea and we just hit 92 with tax and tip.

The food at Masaki was exquisite. I had the arburi sushi selection and each piece was such a complicated compliment of flavours. Their miso was also perfectly balanced. The service was attentive and gentle. I would absolutely return. I’m still dreaming of their sushi.
