We were seated promptly and we found the service attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable. The food was excellent -- we were very pleased. Also, in comparison to the other restaurants in NOTL, the prices were very reasonable.

I love Masaki. Their Wakame salad is one of my favourite taste sensations in the world. And I had their scallop sushi for the first time; it was delectable. I always sit at the bar and watch the extraordinary chefs prepare and their talent impressed me. I always have warm sake and leave with a full stomach and warm spirit. Service is attentive and just the right speed. Ambience is bright, clean, comfortable and attractive.

A dining gem right in the heart of downtown Niagra on the Lake. Our dining experience was stellar. We stopped in early and they were able to accommodate our reservation. My husband started with the Miso soup which was excellent and I had the Wakame salad excellent as well. Next we shared the Tuna Tartare a beautiful presentation and spot on blend of flavors. Wish I had taken a photo of it. I had the Dynamite roll and my husband ordered the Sushi dinner. Both excellent and super fresh. Highly recommended!

Still the best Japanese restaurant in town. The food is always fresh and the service is always excellent especially if Yoshi is serving you. I always order the Sashimi dinner after I've had my oysters.

The sushi was pretty good. Probably the best part was the Yaki Niku Don which was marinated beef on rice brought to us in a hot stone bowl. My partner and I went for lunch. He got a beer and we shared the yaki Niku don, two rolls and the salmon sushi salad and it came to $100 so pretty pricey. I was expecting something amazing for that price but I don’t feel like the rolls were anything special. Our waitress was nice but not that friendly either.

An excellent and relatively new restaurant in Niagara on the Lake. Although a bit pricey, it is definitely worth it. The food, the presentation, and the service were all outstanding. And they are able to accommodate the vegetarians among us without any problems, since a number of their dishes can be modified to take this dietary concern into account. We will definitely eat here again!

My food came cold it was also poor quality. We ordered lobster miso soup by the time you declaw the lobster shells your hands are soar and soup was cold tempera was undercooked. I love Japanese food it’s too bad their place is a tourist trap all around.

We had a wonderful time! Loved the unique tea options and was able to try several new types of nigiri I’d never had before. Quality of sushi was very good. We did start with a tempura plate that left us a little meh, mostly because the piece of asparagus was almost inedible, it was so woody. Overall, though, a great experience!

The Omakase ( chef selection) was extraordinary. Start with a wonderful smoked salmon salad, then delicious sushi and sashimi and finish with extraordinary shrimps, lamb (!), salmon and tuna All artistically presented. This was our second visit and we'd go back again.

We had sushi roll lunch specials and it was delicious as always. It is a good value and comes with 2 types of sushi rolls of your choice (12 pieces), miso soup and green salad with ginger dressing for $18.

The entranceway outside had leaf litter that was distracting.
The sushi dinner was excellent.
Would have appreciated a dish with meat, pork or chicken.

While I don’t live in NOTL, and only visit here once per year, I ALWAYS reserve time to visit Masaki to enjoy its creative and delicious Japanese cuisine. I first dined here three years ago, just shortly after it had opened. I’m glad to say it continues to excel, but sad to say I must return home soon. I look forward to future visits!

Birthday dinner, food was absolutely amazing. We eat sushi everywhere, especially when we travel and this was the best sushi fish we've ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed every bite and how we get to come back again before we head home.
