From the moment we walked in, the staff was inviting and charming. Our waiter Jesse was fantastic. Every employee we encountered.. just amazing. Most importantly, the food. The portions were perfectly sized, leaving you with plenty of room to try more items on the menu! Perfect dining experience all around.

A few minutes after we were seated at Tetsu, we began placing our food order. While I was about halfway through ordering, I was interrupted by a member of the staff (not our waitress, who was in the midst of receiving our order). The interrupter asked, “What’s the name on your reservation?” I gave him my last name, then he asked for my first name, so I gave him that too. He scribbled both down, then asked, “And you were seated by one of our hostesses, right?” “Yes,” I replied, then he walked off. Taken aback, I glanced at my girlfriend (and dining companion), then continued to order after pausing for a few seconds to make sense of what had just happened. We were being accused of having seated ourselves in the restaurant without holding any reservation, it seemed, despite having done nothing of the sort. In reality, the interrupter (or another member of Tetsu’s staff) had simply misidentified us as usurpers in what were our rightful seats. This incident was rude, disruptive and an unpleasant manner in which to begin the meal. Later, when we asked for the check, a “Bourbon Chestnut” had been added, though we had never ordered one. We expected a higher level of service from a Masa restaurant, though the food was good.

Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, wonderful hamburgers between 5 & 6. Look forward to my next visit. My friends loved the experience.
