Mason has become a favourite of ours ... the 5 course degustation is our favourite, the flavours, portion sizes and timing of dishes was just perfect, staff are consistently brilliantly attentive, knowledgeable but not hovering which is always a difficult thing to manage ... Chris & his team produce amazing tasty dishes time and time again and its difficult to name a favourite but the Reypenaer cheese mousse with the bbq onion consume would have to be mine ... but the Miso & caramel mousse was sheer perfection ... thanks again for a beautiful & unforgettable evening - we will of course be back

We have been to Restaurant Mason many times over the years for special occasions and family celebrations and it never disappoints. Great service. Divine food. Wonderful selection of bubbles and fine wine. An absolute joy every time. Love it!!

The food was fantastic even if it was a bit expensive for what you get. The wait staff were great.
We will need to save up again as I would love to go back for another date with my wife.

So - having visited this restaurant a while ago we decided to celebrate a business success here. Food was not a disappointment however when it came to desert we said no thanks and were told we had to pay for this so order anyway. It turned out the menu stated that on Fridays we were up for 3 courses but when we booked on-line there was no mention of this. Not being desert eaters this was not something we would want to indulge in. The head waiter for the night was rude and even used the fact that Hunter Street works had caused them to make these provisos - the restaurant is not on Hunter Street and surely a bill for 2 people with wine for 2 courses is sufficient at $260 and is more than enough not to charge another $40 for a desert that was not eaten or expected. For fine dining this restaurant has lost ours and our local client business. What this manager didn’t realise is we also own a local business right on the light rail line!
