Went there with my brother as part of a short blitz of NYC to experience some finer parts of the city. First of our 3 restaurants (Eleven Madison Park, Jean-George's). Setting is surprising, on top floor of a shopping mall (like myriad so-so restaurants in Asia), but hey, it was next to Per Se, so maybe can't complain. Very plain... More

I was so excited to eat at MASA BAR during my Mom and I's annual visit to NYC for Christmas shopping. What a HUGE disappointment! The sashimi was not fresh and I could not finish the 2 rolls I ordered because the fish smell was so strong (bad fishy smell). I love sushi and this is the worst I have... More

Third time lucky or rather not. Been here three times, twice on a Sunday, so BAR MASA was closed. Masa is NYC's most expensive and one of the most hyped restaurants. I've been very excited to snatch a seat at their sister Bar Masa next door. Frankly, it's totally overrated, and by far not worth the arm and leg they're... More

Had dinner yesterday at Masa in New York. We were looking for something spectacular and we got it. We were sittigpng in front of chef Masa and he was in great form. The food was very special. We love japanese food and sushi and have been eating at many japanese restaurnats but this was very special indeed. The prices are... More

I'm from Seattle and know my sushi. The quality here (MASA bar) was very good, although it was so expensive that we only had a few items. I thought the tuna rolls were tasty but nothing special. Ditto the sashimi. But I was astonished at the tiny portions--about $8 for a very small bite of tuna. The service was indifferent.... More

Well, that was the first question my friend asked me when I told her I went to Masa. I was in New York last weekend and was lucky enough to score a seat at the sushi bar on a Friday night. I was the only person at the bar at 6:30 (there were other customers at the tables). The sushi... More

Going to Masa NYC is/was a once in a lifetime experience so we splurged for my 40th birthday. Unfortunately upon arriving the maitre de tells us 'please silence your cell phones and no pictures please,' so I don't have any pictures of the food. I ended up taking one picture of my wife and got busted (in the nicest way... More

Lets get the price out of the way. It's going to be $1500 for two once sake and service and tax included. The food is amazing. Course after course of purely delectable morsels. It's really that perfect amount of food where you can still enjoy the rest of the day. We were the only two in the dining room and... More

We had reasonably high expectations going into this special occasion dinner. And, at $450 per person which for us turned into $700/person once tip and some basic sake is included, it does need to be one of the best meals one has ever had. Instead, it was fair. Guess others already know this as, even though it was a Friday... More

We had originally made reservations to Masa not realizing this meant a separate experience to their next door less pretentious Masa BAR. We were graciously allowed to change our sitting to the Bar. The food was unbelievable, I can say we ate tons of different items on the menu and all were amazing. The staff was nice and very accommodating,... More
