We went to Masa for appetizers and drinks. Although they were not busy, the service was very slow. They forgot one of our appetizers completely. The tap beer list is very short. The bar area was not very clean, and the chairs and tables are...More

We thouroughly enjoyed this high class, high quality Mexican restaurant. The drinks were very healthy and the food was simply delicious. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommended over the apparently more popular joint down the block.

The food here is contemporary Mexican, they are not eating this fare on the streets of Mexico City. Great service and an unusual take on Mexican food served in an unremarkable dining room.

I enjoyed the crunchy thick corn chips and the squid rice. Tacos seem to be a little expensive. Nice patio area which allowed us do people-watching... Some interesting people to see.
