The food is brilliant, you won't be disappointed that's for sure. But I wanted to write a review about the excellent service. I was on an elimination diet when I visited this restaurant which takes out basically everything that's fun in life in order to identify food sensitivities. So no gluten, dairy, citrus, legumes, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, soy .. the... More

If you like big portion sizes this is not the restaurant for you. If however you like fantastic food, expertly prepared and excitingly presented that comes in sensibly sized serves so you can get though three delicious courses then I thoroughly recommend this excellent CBD eatery. My good lady wife and I eat out a lot and not just in... More

We had the tasting menu and it was divine. The staff were wonderful and were accommodating to my food requirements (no garlic) without any notice, and without any fuss. It was a lovely meal, and overall experience.

I recently went to Restaurant Mason for the first time. A friend and I were due for a well deserved catch up and this venue was somewhere neither of us had been before. We chose to order the seven course degustation, with matching wines. We both loved the look of the menu. We particularly loved the tortellini and the Wagyu... More

We had a great experience at Mason with the 7 course tasting menu. There is a separate vegetarian menu which we had to ask for. We brought our own wine which is possible midweek and staff managed our wine very well. The food was all wonderfully presented and excellent flavours. The cost was high as you would expect for this.... More

My partner and I ate dinner at Restaurant Mason on a Saturday night. We had a fantastic night and were very impressed with the food and service. We decided on picking from the a la carte menu. We both had the scallops for entree, wagyu and rabbit for mains, and blueberry/coconut and baked goats curd for dessert. Pick of the... More

We had the 7 course degustation. They were out of the duck ham but replaced it with a fabulous tortellini matched perfectly with a Sancerre. We asked for the premium wine match and were a little disappointed that all wines (apart from Sancerre) were Australian. Service was great, meals and wine explained well. We would go back but not bother... More

Service was great, presentation was great, taste ok. We had the 7 course feast. Food was very good, but was there any dish that was great not really. Will I go back yes, Will I rush back no. I will say table service was best in Newcastle to date. Very lovely
