Excellent tastes along with wonderful wine pairings. Unfortunately, chef is leaving and restaurant, to my knowledge, is closing. I understand that in future, the chef will be opening a new restaurant.

Food was excellent, as expected for the price, but the service was a bit rushed. Thought there should have been more "little bites", you know the small little special tastings that the chef provides as a surprise in between courses. Wine was paired and was...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

Warm chocolate brown walls, subdued lighting and fresh roses on every table provide the perfect backdrop for the visual and sensual artistry that is Masa’s. Adjacent to Executive Hotel Vintage Court on the boarder of San Francisco’s Union Square and Nob Hill, Masa’s offers superlative service and exquisite California French cuisine elevated to new heights by Executive Chef Gregory Short. For over 25 years and continuing in the tradition of legendary founder Masataki Kobayashi, Masa’s has made its reputation with a succession of world-renowned chefs that have deftly walked the line between culinary adventure and classicism. Chef Short and Master Sommelier Alan Murray delight in presenting nightly three-, four- and seven-course tasting menus highlighting the best of the season and region, the restaurant’s 800-strong wine list, and otherworldly cocktails at the exclusive bar. "The French Laundry influences are evident..." -M. Bauer, San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Restaurants
