This is an outstanding sushi restaurant, and easily one of the best restaurants in NOTL. The sushi chef is skilled and creative and the staff are attentive. Now that Masaki has appeared on a couple of Toronto "best of" lists, the diners have shifted a little from locals and tourists to include hipsters on a mission. All good.
Masaki is consistently excellent! This is the place where I bring my favourite guests.
We love this place, the staff is incredibly knowledgeable
And friendly and food is fantastic
As someone who has been to japan, my sister and I are always trying to find authentic Japanese restaurants that transport us. This is one of those places and we would go back a second time.
Really awesome food and s vice was outstanding
One of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been to, globally! Extremely fresh, very well made, a must go place for those who appreciate sushi.
Delicious food. Excellent service. It's a relatively small, cozy place. Enjoyed it very much.
Excellent, fresh food. Great service. Will definitely be going again and would recommend to anyone who appreciates good sushi and sashimi.
Service was not very prompt. Our main course was very slow - over 30 minutes with no explanation at first (they explained and sent over a complimentary appetizer) to produce the special sashimi we ordered. It was excellent. We were seated close to another table with animated conversation - not a particularly romantic setting but quite authentic. I would go again for the food quality - but would also tell them if I had a show to go to or other deadline.
It was very good. Wouldve liked to know it was a limited menu night in advance though...
We usually just order our favourite sushi dishes but I'd decided to go out on a limb and try the 5 course featured dinner for Valentines day. It was too much food for me and a little out of my comfort zone. My wife ordered her favourite sushi and loved it. I would recommend the wine by the glass be an ounce or two larger, and proper wine glasses be used. Service was excellent.
I can see why Masaki was voted best restaurant in Niagara on The Lake. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. Love the fresh atmosphere and service excellent. Highly recommend
Overall was good. Maybe less sauces on the sushi so we could taste more of the fish.
Ventured out in storm with our special quest from LA, California and were thoroughly pleased with absolutely everything. On par with the best Japanese restaurants found in Vancouver or LA. While our review on service and noise level is highly a result of only one other couple in the entire restaurant, I feel I would certainly be patient on slower service if they were extremely busy as the food is well worth the wait.
Love authentic Japanese cuisine! What I like more is that the seating and atmosphere is upscale great for a night out with friends or a loved one. Yet the pricing is reasonable, and the food is fresh, and they do not forgo ingredients.
Food quality, presentation, service were all very good to excellent, and we will definitely have Masaki on our going out list. I am withholding "outstanding", that will take more than one visit.
The presentation and the food itself was amazing. We love the restaurant and make sure to eat here every time we visit Niagara.
Went here for lunch. Ordered Agedashu tofu, karaage, spicy salmon roll and some sashimi - all were delicious! Service was great :) Will return for dinner next time I'm back in NOTL
Fresh, delicious sushi - a real treat! Love the design and how its tucked away below the sidewalk!
This is the second time we've dined at Masaki and it wont be our last. The sushi is fresh and well prepared. Anything on the menu will be good.
Delicious meal, excellent service.
Excellent meal. Very quiet. Food nicely displayed. A great restaurant for people who love sushi.
Amazing find in NOTL! Perfect for a wonderful meal in the region.
What a wonderful restaurant. This is a place that makes you feel like family but with EXQUISITE food!
Delicious sushi! Seafood is so fresh it melts in your mouth! Shrimp appetizer was mouth watering!
Small intimate place!
Phenomenal quality and service! Tried the Masaki roll and sashimi dinner and both were wonderful - it was so nice to try different kinds of sashimi we’d never had before. They were out of a few things because we came just after the holidays so we’re excited to come back next time we’re in the area so we can try the premium sashimi and oysters. Our server was very knowledgeable and lovely as well.
The food is fantastic there! Worth to go! My family love this place!
Another excellent experience at Masaki! Expertly prepared, delicious sashimi and wonderful service. A NOTL highlight.
The waiter named Yoshi and chef at the sushi bar are just excellent, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody, the food are just great. Will definitely go back again next year.
Best Sushi ever, premium fish from Tokyo, they hand grind their own wasabi, the rice is different, the green tea ice cream was not bitter like usual, the server even explains what the dish is and what everything is. Amazing place, if you think Mine sushi is the best... Your gonna have a good time here
Amazing! The best sushi restaurant, hands down! Every piece of food was flawless and fresh. No frozen fish here! Service...impeccable!
A real gem in the heart of Niagara. The sushi looked excellent but I had the beef udon special and my husband the beef curry special because it was freezing outside and we needed to warm up. The beef udon stock was excellent and a reasonable quantity but the beef itself was chopped into tiny little bits and although it was supposed to be tenderloin, they were a bit chewy. Same issue with the beef curry. However, we will definitely be back to sample other items on the menu, because the basis of a good Japanese restaurant was definitely there. We also found it rather expensive but then again, so is everything in NOTL! Service was wonderful.
Excellent and unique Japanese Cuisine, well above the ordinary. If you are a food you will appreciate the quality and presentation.
The sushi and sashimi were very chewy. It appeared that they were not fresh. We have been to this restaurant many times before and the food was amazing. Let’s hope this was an off evening for the chef!!!!
Dinner was delicious, service was fabulous. A real gem of a spot! Highly recommend for outstanding freshness of the food and their service.
This was our fifth time dinning at Masaki. Their quality of fish never disappoints me and we were especially lucky last night as a new shipment just arrived from Japan! My mom is a picky eater and she gave the assorted seafood in a hot stone pot on rice a perfect 10/10. Server was vey attentive and patient with our questions. Will definitely come back again!
Just a great first experience...…. highly recommend !!!!!!!!!
Best Sushi in Niagara - Service and food is always amazing
Great experience. Very friendly staff, food was delicious and restaurant was very clean. Will definitely go back.
Fabulous sushi. Ive never had better even though I’ve paid a lot more. Service was lovely, attentive and unimposing. Ambience was perfect for my needs.
