Will be missed!

Just heard that the Masa is closing at the end of 2015. We were just there last week and plan to go back before it closes. The food was always good and the service was attentive and courteous. We'll be on the look for a comparable Mexican restaurant in Tacoma. Thanks, Masa for several good years!

Visited this restaurant while visiting my sister in Tacoma. Food was excellent! The chips and salsa were probably the best I've ever had, and the chicken burrito was also great! Would definitely recommend for good Mexican food!

Interesting menu, and most all of the choices include a little heat....just enough to tell you aren't in Kansas anymore. Perfect sliced avocado to balance the heat. Arroz con Pollo is very good, interesting (above the norm) treatment of chips and salsa, and some very nice small plates.

Dined here with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We made reservations for 7:30. The table for 7 was ready as promised. Our Uber driver said this place gets kind of crazy on Friday and Saturday nights. We didn't see this at all. It was full of a good mix of patrons, nothing too wild. A variety of... More

My wife and I went for dinner expecting authentic Mexican food. I ordered the short ribs pappardelle. The portion size was good, but it had an average taste. My wife ordered the the tamale and the chicken enchilada. They both were gross. It's more geared towards drinks and atmosphere.

Masa is a vibrant modern twist on Mexican. It's not the most authentic, but it's very good and true to their unique signature. The chips and salsa are excellent and all the food was great! Good staff too! You will enjoy it!

We have eaten at Masa many times over the past few years and stopped going a year ago when the food was so inconsistent that it wasn't worth the time or money to go. We recently tried then again when we were renovating our kitchen and got tired of our regular places. The chips are really good while waiting to... More

Perhaps I am biased, but we had our local conference group in Tacoma, WA eat at Masa while we were in town, and the guests from all over the US loved it. We had the private room upstairs, inside from the deck, and even were able to secure a live band for entertainment. The restaurant knows how to treat its... More

What a fun place for a light dinner. We came for happy hour, and had a great light dinner. Carne asada street tacos and a margarita. Just right for me after having had a very big lunch. Really interesting salsa with the chips. Also tried the flan, but too dense for my taste. I'd go back.

I agree with inattentive staff. Seemed more interested in cleaning spare tables than checking up on us. 2 of 3 orders were incorrect. Slow to seat us and food order took longer than we were hoping. Portions were large however nearly everyone leaves with a to go box.
