Massilia is a Marseille-inspired brasserie with culinary influences from the South of France, Italy, Spain and Morocco.

WE ARE OPEN FOR DINING ON OUR BEAUTIFUL PATIO AND WE ARE FOLLOWING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND CDC GUIDELINES.

With a beautiful recessed patio, the all-day restaurant and bar conveys the atmosphere of those lively French eateries;
a buoyant neighborhood hub by day (offering coffee drinks, croissants, and egg dishes in the morning, pita sandwiches and classic bistro items such as steak-frites for lunch) to a festive ambiance at night around dishes such as homemade pasta, gambas au pastis, eight-hour braised lamb, and Moroccan tajine.

The unique crafted cocktail program is based around spirits from the South of France and Italy, with a dedicated Negroni menu, as well as an extensive selection of Amari and French brandies.

Massilia is open every day at 7:00am.

We enjoy dining at this restaurant. The food is tasty (Socca breakfast pizza, buckwheat pancakes, crispy bacon, grilled salmon sandwich, and spaghetti bolognese), nicely presented, and portions are generous. The service is great and so is the attention to detail by the staff.

The patio space is inviting and open. Only downside is that eating outdoors is kind of noisy from traffic going by on 4th Street. However, that will not deter us from coming back to try some of the other dishes.

Lunch was excellent so we will try dinner. Menu was intriguing and delicious. Server could have been more attentive.
There is a beautiful bar so the noise level probably increases as do the crowds. The space is huge but divided comfortably.

Really nice ambience and the service was great. It felt like my friends and I were dining somewhere in France. The Spanish Meatballs, Patatas Bravas, Broccoli, Spinach & Green Curry Soup all hit the spot for our starters, and we really loved the Wild Mushroom Pizza and Steak-Frites with the chimichuri sauce. Terrific service as well.

One of the worst meals I have had at any restaurant I would choose to go to and I'm usually pretty easy to please. This is the first negative review I have ever written about anything, but this food was so horrible, I have to review it. Service was OK, but nothing is good when food is bad. And my glass of Sancerre wine tasted bad too. It was a horrible experience. I would never go back nor would I recommend this restaurant to anyone!!

We had brunch there on Saturday, ordered Brioche French Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict and coffees... just average and nothing to rave about. 90 minute free parking at the parking structure just across the street.

Nice dinner, good service, portion sizes varied from dish to dish. The lamb was definitely the highlight. Not really a “French” restaurant but lots of really nice Mediterranean dishes.

Didn’t have a chance to enjoy the food as the waitress totally abandoned my table after seating us. After waiting for 10 mins for her to bring me water, I asked the bus boy to get her. She still did not come after 5 more mins wait. The restaurant wasn’t even busy; she was just chatting with another staff while we asked for her. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Upon our arrival we were seated at a table, the waiter asked for our drink order, and then when he brought the bottle of wine we ordered and began to open it, one person in our party of 3 asked if we could see the lunch menu instead of the brunch menu. He said no, they were only serving brunch. I then said that the website for the restaurant indicated that the brunch menu and the lunch menu would be available on the weekend, to which he replied in an extremely rude manner: "Let me repeat myself again," and told us lunch was unavailable. The three of us got up and walked to the front to ask for the maker, to which we were told there was none working that day . And then we left. Absolutely abominable behavior.
