    We have been dinning at Bar Masa for many years and it has been one of our favorite NYC places. We understand this is not an inexpensive restaurant however we were charged $52 for a gin martini which would typically on the high end cost $28. There are certain items that we can’t fathom over paying for and this is one of them. The sashimi dinner was also over priced and we should have ordered a la cart sushi. We left hungry and the bill was $550 for (2). The Tuna and caviar is well worth the $98 and the stone crab was worth the $40 and we enjoyed the sake and service.

    The experience completely justifies the price. Impressive quality, unique ingredients, and insuperable flavors. If you can afford it, don’t think twice.

    Delicious sashimi. My only issue was we had a 9:15pm reservation and were told that the kitchen closed at 9:30pm. It wasn’t a relaxing meal. I would suggest 9pm be the last reservation they offer.
