We had a fabulous dinner here. No leftovers. Great service. We were at a loss with the options. Our waitress, Karen, was very patient and informative. The owner stopped at our table.

Mason has lots of well known, respected chain restaurants but it was wonderful to discover a family run Mediterranean restaurant with excellent food quality and attentive, knowledgeable wait staff. Wine choices by the glass are limited but nicely chosen. On top of all that, this...More
