Read Gayot's Restaurant Review of Masa's

The French Laundry alum Gregory Short elevates California-French cooking at this elegant San Francisco venue with no lack of imagination. Four- and seven-course dégustation menus benefit from vibrant, seasonal Napa produce as much as from Short’s beautiful architectural presentations. The lush romantic setting remains an icon of fine Bay Area dining, and the parade of culinary talent that has previously passed through Masa’s kitchen doors includes Julian Serrano and Ron Siegel, both Top 40 chefs.
