Main claim to fame for food is kind of Spanish Tapas, but I had very good whole meal here. Food was different from the run of the mill. Need to be willing to try different flavors but they did them well and this Irish kid could handle the level of spiciness, although they offered more spice if you want it.... More

Last night I went for a stroll in Boston for the first time since my little paws returned home to Cambridge back in July. It was truly a wonderful night to be out in the city. My destination for the evening was a southwestern restaurant called Masa in the South End on Tremont Street. It had been over two years... More

Excellent breakfast on Sunday morning, nice ambience, good service. For the party of 3 ordered 3 different dishes & we all agreed that all of them were quite tasty. Definitely are coming back.

Masa is great all around. Not only for dinner but brunch also. The menu will please everyone plus they have awesome margaritas. Try the Tres Chili!

I dined with friends for Sunday brunch and everyone loved their food! Reasonably priced with great flavor. The fresh breads and homemade jams/butter were an incredible start. Don't miss out on the Eggs Benedict- great flavor with a little kick!

We went for brunch and tried several tasty tequila based drinks, mostly with chilies. The breads and spreads were good as was my huevos rancheros. The chocolate chip pancakes were underwhelming but the Santa Fe spring rolls were very good. We were disappointed with the burger and fries. The banana empanadas were also underwhelming. Over all good drinks and decent... More

I've been to Masa a number of times both for brunch and for drinks with apps. I've always enjoyed great experiences up until recently. I went for brunch with my wife and with several friends. The service was horrible. People didn't get coffee or their correct drinks, and we never got water refills. I mean it was busy, but it... More

Love the space but service was spotty and food was average. Positive was they accepted our reservation for 13 people. Negative was tables were wedged up against others, trapping other guests.

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
