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. The waiter was friendly and helpful and explained all the dishes very well. The only downside to this restaurant is the acoustics that mean you have to shout to be heard over the ambient noise. We will be back one day!

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 night was the wagyu.

Staff were incredible and attentive. Danni was particularly delightful.

The only negative is that the space is a little strange / stuffy. Perhaps the layout (a grid of tables) could be worked on so its a little more natural.

Overall we had a great night, and would recommend for a special occasion or treat.

A while since our last visit, but still a polished floor Team, stunning food & a terrific wine list. Started w' Goats Cheese Tortellini matched w'a DeIuliis Verdelho & Scallops in Coastal Herbs matched w'a stunning KingValley PinotGris. Next the Spring Lamb (go to dish) matched w'a Gundog Shiraz & Beef Rib matched w'a stunning Hentley Farm Cabernet. Fabulous lunch at a brilliant restaurant overseen by an amazing Chef. A defiant Newcastle treasure!

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 with the wine match but instead chose our own. Nice dining room, tables well spaced. Standout dishes were the tortellini, fish (Hapuka) and Wagu. The strawberry dessert really worked well with the peanut flavours!

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
