Great wine, great service, nice environment FANTASTIC FOOD. SO TASTY, A visit here makes you feel healthy. The only way I would improve it is to ask other clients not to speak loudly, and get rid of TV screens so that you can sit up at the bar as in an authentic sushi bar. Most people probably would not agree... More

We tried a couple of the restaurant's most popular rolls, including the Monkey Roll, all of which were pretty good. The challenge in SoCal is there are so many great sushi restaurants making it difficult to stand out but we thought the sushi was above average. Unfortunately the weak service took a little away from the culinary experience. Our water... More

I've been going to Masuo's for twelve years, since I moved to Solana Beach. I have never had anything less than, the best Sushi ever there! My favorite is the Bluefin Sashimi and the Rasta Roll, which is a chef's favorite and not on the menu. We have eaten inside, out front, on the back patio and in the Lani.... More

After a day at Moonlight beach we went out for dinner. Pulled up to Masuo's, was not busy so in we went. Ordered 3 rolls, the Jimmy roll (or Timmy?) was good as was the spicy tuna, the other roll was ok. What was very good was the service. Our waitress was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing. I felt the... More

This place has a good vibe. The patio and lounge room out back has a very local Solana Beach feel. The casual and comfortable atmosphere. That being said, I have eaten all over Southern California and I am fisherman and a seasoned sushi chef, but this place sets "the bar" for all I have tried.

Masuo's is a longtime favorite in Solana Beach. Always good service and quality food. On a recent visit the bluefin toro was some of the best I've ever had.

Masuo's is popular among Solana Beach locals. Prices reasonable and fare is Calif. Japanese. Relaxed beach atmosphere and located on Hwy 101, which is main drag through beach towns. Extensive menu of sushi rolls.

Located on the main highway through Solana Beachyoyu find this gem of a small sushi restaurant. Masuo is the owner and is present almost always, the greet and make guests comfortable. Excellent shushi chefs working behind sushi bar, makes it a good show.

Portions of sashimi and sushi rolls were 50-60% scale and overpriced for the quality. Nice patio out back, but the service was barely passable. Added an 18% tip to our family of 6 bill automatically, which is bad business and way more than they earned. Won't be back.
