This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who is a food critic for the capital region newspaper. I was overwhelmed to say the least. My husband and I both had the tasting menu and what a sampling of the chef's expertise and the fresh ingredients of the producers! I particularly enjoyed the squab, and my husband was drooling over his pork dish. Service was excellent!... ask to be seated at the farm table!

After 3 visits, at none of which our reservation was honored on time - waits were 20 to 30 minutes - we found the service a little pretentious and not very professional. Although the chef is very good, it is simply not worth the wait.

The food was good, small quantity, so you can really order appetizer, entree and dessert. I went there to try the Guiness Ice Cream (which was categorized as best ice cream in Time Out)... and they had the ice cream, but not the actual dessert that was reviewed in the magazine (I went there specifically to eat that!). I wouldn't repeat the restaurant.

I've been to Mas twice now, and was fortunate to try the tuna appetizer the first time so I could enjoy it again the second time. It is by far the most incredible thing I have ever eaten, raw like sushi, but seared in a burnt, nutty tasting butter. The lamb and duck as entrees, are delicious, small and not cheap, but quality not quantity is king, right? The service is wonderful, they even time putting down the plates and drinks. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is definitely a destination spot: save it for a special occasion or an expense account, 'cause it's anything but cheap. That said, the food is exquisite, the menu diverse and creative and rather ingenius. I had the sweet crab stuffed portabello as an appetizer, and wild striped bass w/ favas and morels for an entree, and those alone (while absolutely delicious) cost almost $50 pre-tax and tip, drinks and dessert not included. Pricey but surely worth the splurge if you can. Oh... and the blueberry-orange frangipane tart is sublime.
