bad, bad,bad – YUCK! There is NOBODY ever in this place! I dont trust the food! I live in the neighborhood and there IS NO business here! They made us walk three blocks in the dark to find an ATM machine. They only take cash and amex. They have an ATM in the restroom, that apparently never works,according to the waitress! NICE. I have heard the same thing from other friends. food is messy and of poor quality. Dont waist your time or money.
Not good at all – I went to masso for dinner the other night and It was terrible. Not only was the server rude, she smelled like cigarettes. When we finally got the food, it wasn't good at all. It was all thrown together on the plate. LIC, is such a hip area, you would think these people would want to do better. I did get a chance to met the owner. He seemed like a yound guy only looking to make a quick buck. If you are looking for a good meal in LIC go to tornasol. You will always get amazing food with out the smell of collage kid and a side of cigarette..
Best brunch in town!!!!!!!!!!!! – I eat here almost every weekend with my husband for a reason,actually, many reasons: The brunch here is AMAZING (especially the green eggs and ham) the prices are reasonable, and the service is always great. Yes, sometimes the food is slow in coming out,but, hey, it is made to order and in my opinion,worth the wait..you get what you pay for...they play great music (sometimes alittle loud,we have a baby) and the place is really cozy , especially in winter with the fireplace. They also have fruit infused mimosas and really great bloody Marys. We love this place and reccommend it to all our friends in and out of the neighborhood for brunch. We have never been here for dinner or lunch but highly reccommend brunch!!!!!!!!!!!!
All around terrible – We waited for our food for 2 hours. The service was terrible- almost rude and we had to ASK for some bread to hold us over for the 2 hours while we sat and waited. When the food finally came out it was awful. charred and burned shrimp, chewy french toast, bland omlettes- just awful. Then they seemed shocked when we wanted to speak to a manager. We are very easy going- we can handle slow horrible service (lived in williamsburg for a year) but this was beyond anything I've ever experienced.
Avoid at all costs – The food was bland and nothing special, and the service was absolutely terrible. There is nothing like having dinner with friends and feeling frustrated with horrendous service throughout the meal. There are far better places to eat in the neighborhood so I wouldn't waste my energy again.
The Worst in LIC – With so much going on in LIC right now you would think everyone would try to step up their game. Not so here. This is one of the pitiful underachieving establshments that tend to cause critics and diners alike to rate Queens bars and restaurants on a "Queens-curve". As in, it's a good place to eat...y'know...for Queens." Even with so-called curve there is very little to recommend other than the lovely glass of Rose I ordered. Unimaginative dishes, undercooked calamari, overcooked steak, watery soup, poor presentation and indifferent almost robotic service. As for atmosphere...well, I didn't see any.
Editorial Review – Italian bar and restaurant from the owners of Luca Bar and Luca Lounge in the East Village.
Great Food, Cozy Atmosphere – If you want to go somewhere different, relax and not get rushed out the door, then go to Masso. It's a great place to go and sit by the fireplace while you eat and drink! The service is great. The prices are right. The food is fantastic. I also highly recomend the brunch. You can't go wrong with this place if you are on a date, alone, or with a group!
The place to be!!! – My friends and I met up there last week for drinks. We had no intention of eating there since we had reservations in Manhattan for dinner. We were so comfortable we lost track of time, missed our reservation and wound up eating and drinking at Masso for about 4 hours. The entire evening was delightful and our guest from out of town was beside herself at what a nice place it was and couldn't wait to come back...
You're gonna Love It!! – This place is definately on the rise.. Soon you will not be able to get in the door. The food, the ambiance and the service are incredible. To our surprise we usually freguent the place on the weekends at night, however, we tried brunch there on a Saturday a few weeks ago and have beeb back every weekend since.
