We arrived around 9:30 on a Sunday (so I guess we were there for breakfast) but the entire brunch menu was available. The restaurant was hardly full but we were oddly sat right on top of (literally 3 inches from) the only other table of 2 in the place! We tried not to let this dampen our spirits, as we... More

Katy was phenomenal and guided us through all the wonderful menu options. The homemade cornbread was comforting and soooo good, the latte was a smart choice after a night of drinking, but i must admit that i almost ordered the bloody mary! Seems to be a must have!

This place has a great bunch menu. Make sure to get there before 11:30AM for their $10 three course brunch menu. I got a Mexican style omelette that was very good and fried plantains. The atmosphere is a little more upscale for its location. They also have very good mimosas!

One of my most affordable and delicious brunch options in Boston. I had the chorizo dish for my brunch, and it was just the perfect amount. The portions are not giant like diner breakfast/brunch food but the price is reasonable. You get the "fancy" brunch feeling without breaking the bank!

Not often do I get to travel out of town both with my sister and daughter. Found Masa on Trip Advisor and reviews were pretty good. Boy was I disappointed. Put us in a rear table near a party -- between the thumping background music and the party we finally gave up conversing. Dinner came out way too fast yet... More

Entrees are good... but unique are the happy hour tapas! Interesting drinks and good bites! Go before 7pm!

On the outskirts of the group of delicious restaurants on Tremont St. in the South End, Masa provides a multi-faceted experience with food that's hard to beat. In the mood to wine and dine a special someone, sit in the dining room. In the mood for a more casual dining experience, try the bar area and order from either the... More

Masa is one of my favorite places in Boston. I go there at least once a month for brunch. The place is really nice, warm and cozy. It is perfect for people on budget and enjoys great food.

My wife and I had visited Masa a couple of years ago and had an excellent time. The food was great and we got to sample some tequila (which I know nothing about). The Tequila Sommelier gave us a quick tequila education and it was tasty. Can't try too too many of those. In any event, we had occasion to... More
