I was so excited when my husband said he had arranged for us to dine at this starred japanese restaurant. It was very very delicious, the service impeccable, the decor quite lovely (though I didn't like the material he chose to do the walls in, though his decoration of the walls was very creative). No pictures allowed sorry to say,... More

Waouh! Waouh! From the atmosphere, to the food, to the bill, everything is breath taking at Masa! Money consideration apart, this is the most creative and the most incredible sushi restaurant in NYC (and probably in the world). The toro is better than anywhere else and the fusion with western classics such as truffle or caviar just makes me want... More

There is no doubting that the food is exceptional but probably not far superior to other high end Japanese establishments in Tokyo. The experience is intimate but service felt somewhat mechanical.

Yesterday, the 29th of April, was an unusual cold day here in NY. We landed in Columbus Circle after a walk in Central Park under the rain. We saw this restaurant and did not know about the rating. The food was good but nothing peculiar if compared to the many other I've visited around the globe. What we paid for... More

This is a fantastic place where you can live an amazing japanese food experience. The best I taste in the world. People are very nice. I got my magic place in NY! You also have to taste the Masa Granite cocktail. Cheers

Perhaps the best sushi in NYC. Reminds me of Jiro in Tokyo, with ther extreme attention to detail and superb attention. Unlike trendy places, there are no lines, reservation only and only 20 meals served per day.

There is no menu, which is fine with me...we spent about 3 hours having a dinner that was worth every cent. The sushi is TO DIE FOR and it makes me wish I lived in NYC, so I could eat there more often. Hat's off to the genius behind this establishment.

Go to Bar Masa for the wasabitini - often its not on the drinks list but ask, and they will make you one of the best cocktails ever. Sit at the bar and watch freshly grated wasabi shaken into very good gin or vodka to create a drink to remember. A proper drink. A drink to make your taste buds... More

I have dined at Masa probably 5 times now. I will keep going there because there is no place like Masa when it comes to Sushi. Yes it is expensive but worth every penny. Masa is one of my favorite places to have sushi and I treat myself from time to time to great sushi. Please if you are going... More
