My daughter and I were fortunate to acquire reservations for dining at Mas last week. We opted for the Chef Tasting Menu and we were very impressed with the entire experience. Saying the food was tasty is an understatement! Each course was a delight for the senses mixing textures, aromas, flavours and presentation to the highest level! It was a... More

Confirming our earlier visit, Mas continues to be one of the very best dining experiences in town. From the efforts to increase our reservation for 2 to a reservation for 4 on a busy Saturday night, to the expert service all evening, Mas goes the extra mile to make one feel at home to enjoy the expertly created fare. Highly... More

We came during their 10 year anniversary week and took advantage of their 10 course tasting menu with wine pairing. What a great find! We thoroughly enjoyed every course and will be back.

We ate there last night. I had not been there in awhile so I had forgotten how incredible this place is. We are NYers and I have to say this could be the best restaurant in the city. It was a perfect meal. The night started with Angela, the hostess providing the perfect table and remembering to have the waiter... More

If you want to treat yourself to an unforgettable meal, go to MAS. From the moment you walk in the front door, EVERYONE is smiling, and bending over backwards to accommodate you and make you feel welcome. The food is truly extraordinary, and their goal is to please your palate. They give you any option or combination you wish from... More

Our family met in NYC from three locations and were uniformly pleased with our experience at Mas. Sharing the communal table - and a few dishes among friends - we selected the 4 course menu. The smoked celery root soup, crispy octupus, beet salad with a citrus zip, and nut crusted duck were standouts. The younger crowd raved about the... More

Excellent choice. Dined with friends on an early reservation because it's hard to get in otherwise. Super tasty organic food and wine. I had tuna appetizer and duck, both superbly done. My partner had beet salad and striped sea bass. My pinot noir was excellent, if not slightly pricy. Ambience and service were sublime. Would go again!

It was with great anticipation that my lady and I approached our dinner at Mas. We had heard so much about it from friends and family that we had to try it. We went as a party of four, two couples, on a recent Friday night. While waiting for all to arrive we had two particularly delicious specialty cocktails, including... More

The customer service was brilliant - out of four diners, we were allowed to chose three different menus and we each had a completely unique culinary experience. Usually restaurants make the whole table do a tasting menu, with the same dishes, but our waiter let us chose between the chef's selection, ordering a la carte, or doing a tasting menu... More

We had an excellent dinner. Loved the 4 course tasting menu - they let you subsitute items from the main menu if you wish. Most of the dishes were great - a few were just interesting without much taste. All of the food was well cooked. While wine list was great, it would have been nice to have few more... More
