Great sushi.

Sushi fabulous but staff were a little stiff- chefs and waiters. The food was fast and plenty of it. Some portions were too large actually so we felt full before the best part of the meal - the sushi. Wagyu beef was pretty good. I asked the waiter to leave the wagyu and bring the next course and he... read more

Overall disappointing. My husband and I dined here in the past week and we felt the food and service did not match the 3 michelin star rating or the price. We have eaten at many 3 michelin star restaurants and are still baffled as how this restaurant got 3 stars. The restaurant claims to have a 25 course chef tasting.... More

Excellent service - chef charming and wait staff attentive but not intrusive. Gorgeous Hinoki wood bench. Food amazing - freshest fish I've ever had ..... Sea urchin flown in from Hokkaido that morning. Will return when next in NYC. Michelin stars well deserved. A luxurious indulgence.

Masa What we like about Masa: Exclusiveness Professionalism Uniqueness Craftsmanship Attention to details What we don't like about Masa: Restrictions precludes full relaxation; being watched by staff Aloofness of owner/ chef Recommendations: Come down from lofty heights Charismatic owner/ chef to greet guests will bring extra dimension

In this place I've had one of the most amazing experiences eating sushi. The quality of the food is really good. Everything you can eat there is amazing for your palate. The only problem is the position of the restaurant, for a high quality food you should have a same quality place where serving meals.

Bar Masa is a more casual version of the actual restaurant and they serve lunch and dinner. Plus there is an a la cart menu at bar masa for when you want to have a smaller meal. Simply put, the quality and preparation of dishes is top notch. There were moments of eating where both my wife and I sat... More

Holy Cow!! This is an amazing restaurant!. A totally different feel from Masa. A lot more casual and relaxed. Bar Masa has a regular menu in addition to omakase. We came for lunch and had a terrific meal. We sat at the sushi bar and received great service from the gentleman behind the bar. This is not a typical "sitting... More

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
