Warm chocolate brown walls, subdued lighting and fresh roses on every table provide the perfect backdrop for the visual and sensual artistry that is Masa’s Restaurant in San Francisco. Adjacent to Executive Hotel Vintage Court on the border of San Francisco’s Union Square and Nob Hill, Masa’s Restaurant offers superlative fine dining service and exquisite California French cuisine elevated to new heights by Executive Chef Gregory Short.
For over 25 years and continuing in the tradition of legendary founder Masataki Kobayashi, Masa’s Restaurant in San Francisco has made its reputation with a succession of world-renowned chefs that have deftly walked the line between culinary adventure and classicism. Chef Short and Master Sommelier Alan Murray delight in presenting nightly four- and seven-course degustation fine dining menus highlighting the best of the season and region, the restaurant’s 800-strong wine list and otherworldly cocktails at the exclusive bar.
Designed by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, Masa’s restaurant dining room is a gracious and elegant triumph of modern simplicity and warmth. Entering into a calming foyer and bar of creamy sandstone, guests are welcomed into an intimate space filled with white, toile d'Juoy fabric-covered chairs and tables topped with Masa’s signature vases of roses. Cranberry-hued, silk lampshades suspended from above offer a warm glow. In the center of the room is the fanciful, hammered-bronze sculpture commissioned from artist Albert Guibara called “Les Muses de La Cuisine” depicting dancing figures holding artichokes, asparagus and grapes.
From the moment you walk in the door at Masa’s restaurant in San Francisco, whether for a memorable romantic dinner for two or a group celebration in the private Wine Cellar, no detail is left behind by Masa’s award-winning fine dining service and culinary teams at a timeless San Francisco restaurant.
