“Nice view, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I used a Groupon voucher to try out this restaurant. Service was very good; the food was good, and we weren't "looked down on" for using a Groupon voucher. It was a little pricey but is within the Sheraton Hotel overlooking NYC so it wasn't surprising. The Baked Cauliflower in a carbonara sauce was excellent and my steak was cooked perfectly. My daughter would go back but would not order the chicken and shrimp dish again because it was a little dry and a little oversauced to compensate. She was surprised the shrimp tails were on the shrimp in a sauced dish but we didn't know if that was to be expeced. We saw a mix of business people, a family, and friends dining together. There was a big bar that had a nice mix of people. I'd go back but only with a coupon.

“Pleasant restaurant in a beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

This Lincoln Harbor restaurant sits near the Hudson River across from Manhattan. If you are on the New York side, enjoy a NY Waterway Ferry to your dining adventure at Masina. While I am not an expert on Italian food, my husband and I have always found our meals to be freshly served. In warmer weather, you can be seated outside, but keep in mind that there is competition for those tables. If you are up for strolling after your meal, take the riverfront sidewalk north (towards the George Washington Bridge) or south (to Hoboken, then on to Newport, and the Liberty State Park). Stunning views. Peaceful areas. Great for taking photos! A small children's playground is located about a mile to the south of this restaurant.

“Nice View but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stopped by this restaurant on a Sunday mid - afternoon. We were in the area so we came to enjoy the view of the Hudson River and grab a quick bite and drink.

The good news is that we got a table by the window. There were only two other tables being served. However, there was a birthday party in the room next door so the staff may have been distracted.

The Martinis were great - nice selection and well mixed.

The service seemed distracted:
We were served water without any ice.
The coffee was warm not hot and after a hot cup was provided a refill never offered.
The waitress didn't seem to know much about the pasta menu.

The food didn't leave much of an impression. The chicken pannini had a grilled chicken that seemed very dry. The veggie pannini seemed better. Both were mostly bread and little else. The pasta was Ok.

The bar seemed to be getting busy just as we left in the late afternoon.

Its in the Sheraton Suites Hotel in Lincoln Harbor.

“No Redeming Qualities”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Went with the family to celebrate my sister laws birthday. We should have stayed away. Inexperienced wait staff and manger combined with an incompetent kitchen. It took over an hour for us to receive omlettes, pancakes and panini. Food was cold and tasteless. The restaurant should be avoided at all cost.
