Fui a cenar con mi hijo y mi novia. Me gustó. Me encantaría que fuese un poco más “japonés” pero entiendo que todas las comidas tienen adaptación al lugar donde están. La pasamos bien, lo recomiendo.

This restaurant is not bad.....but not worth long drive if you do not live in the area.
It is not the best Japanese restaurant that I have been to but if you are in Niagara area and craving for Japanese food, it is worth trying.

No miso-soup is given with either Sashimi dinner or Sushi dinner.
They charge green tea too.
So....every little thing is being charged and portions are small.
Again.....not bad.....but not to die for.

We always have a wonderful experience at Masaki. Food quality of this visit was a bit below our expectations. The Ebi Mayo never disappoint. The fish selections were not as great and the nigiri sushi fell apart when my husband picked it up with his chopsticks. He had a much more enjoyable experience when we had the omakase set at dinner at our last visit. My sashimi lunch was only a plate of sashimi with no bowl of rice. I would order the chirashi next time as the value is better and seems more filling.

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.

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.

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.

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.
