Excellent food and excellent Service!

Took my in-laws there for their first tasting menu. The food was excellent. There was a good variety of different flavours and each dish was unique and well presented. The desert was special when they came out with 4 different deserts, each with their own wine pairing. Would go back in a heart... read more

Took my in-laws there for their first tasting menu. The food was excellent. There was a good variety of different flavours and each dish was unique and well presented. The desert was special when they came out with 4 different deserts, each with their own wine pairing. Would go back in a heart beat! Well done!

I can't say enough positive things about MAS. We had the tasting menu and everything was amazing. You were able to swap out any of the other menu items if there wasn't something you wanted during the tasting courses. The staff was so friendly and fun. They helped make the meal. It was very cool to see how they all... More

I visited this past weekend for our anniversary dinner. The place is nice and pretty. The food is alright. On the pricey side, but if you are a foodie like me.. More details and photos on my blog. Blog link included in my profile.

Four of us had dinner at this unobtrusive restaurant with a décor and atmosphere that could not be nicer. Service was excellent as well. My wife had the $88 four course tasting menu, the cheaper of two, the other being $125 and she rated it good (on a scale of good, very good, and excellent) with fish for the main... More

From the friendly (and well coordinated) waitstaff, to the innovative and delicious cuisine, dinner at Mas is an evening to be remembered.

Not that it is bad, not at all! It is just that the reviews and ranking of Mas on various sites had heightened my expectations. The ingredients are great and the taste is good, but never exceptional. The appetizer (Tuna) was a dissaster, and that for a signature dish! The tuna was over cooked and drowned in an undefinable pile... More

Was taken to dinner by my boyfriend for my birthday. The four course tasting menu is both a great value and a perfect distillation of their a la carte menu. I appreciated the ability to substitute any of the courses from the a la carte menu as well. All of the dishes came out perfectly seasoned and delicious beyond compare.... More

We were celebrating a friend's retirement and someone suggested Mas for dinner -- and our experience there couldn't have been better. The decor is cozy and inviting. The servers were helpful and friendly. But it was the food that made it truly amazing. We all ordered something different (chicken, fish, pasta) but universally agreed that the food was 5 star....

Zagat gave this restaurant a 28 for Food. It deserves it. Service is also great. The 4 course pre fixe is very flexible. Portions are nice size. This is an excellent treat place. Reasonably priced, compared to other top restaurants

I was recommended Mas by a friend that said it was a fantastic place to eat, so based on reviews and that I made a dinner reservation and can say I was not impressed in the least bit. First impression, the restaurant is small but cute but the service was nothing to be impressed with. The server that first approached... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
