Dear Bassemalkhabbaz, thank you for your kind words of appreciation, as you know and mentioned quality and excellence came with a little cost as well! What surprised me is your comment about Morocco? I'm Italian, from Milano to be exact and with a family history that goes back at least 300 years without traces of Moroccan ancestors :-) ... I've... More

Sometimes everything is 110% and other times its a mess. on certain days such as today the food is not made as well as other days. For example, today the salad wasn't dressed properly, chicken was over cooked, champagne was flat, cheese tart had the wrong type of cheese (waiter said the original cheese wasn't available), rissoto was hard and...

Dear Zalthawa, I'm so sorry to read such a comment especially knowing that you are a returning guest! I will not start finding excuses or similar as there are none to justify a bad experience, I can only apologize and thank you for your very generous rating in spite of your comments, I guess more related to other visits... while...

A very nice atmosphere and interior design. The service was good as well but the dishes were not as goos as would someone expect for the expensive prices!

Most people plan their weekends around a Friday Brunch. I would highly recommend breaking with the norm and going for the Saturday Brunch at Masso. The food is insane. Unlike most places where you get what I would describe as "good" food in outrages varieties and quantities, at Masso you get a smaller (although ample) selection of "excellent" food. The... More

I tried to send them a feedback, but unfortunately he was the one receiving the feedback, and didnt care nor did anything... More

Dear Mariam Q. thank you very much for your kind words about our food. please know that I sincerely appreciated and I'm very sorry to hear that you felt that our Manager was rude to you.

This was a completely different brunch in the fact that you were served at the table. We were given a menu with approximately 25 items on it. You could have 6 of one or all 25 items. We were unsure what to have so the very helpful waiter suggested we left it to him. We had 24 small courses shared... More

We went first in January for the Friday brunch and had a fantastic time, so much so we have been back 2 more times. The menu changes slightly each time which keeps it interesting. Unfortunately, the last time we went earlier this month (March) there was only 2 tables in restaurant and still the service was poor. An hour before... More
