TripAdvisor Rating Based on 121 reviews

Downtowners rely on this longtime family operation for contemporary Creole and smooth service.

Massa's is abuzz with big-spender seafood lovers and after-work deal makers. A mural of dreamy fish by a local artist anchors the cozy, wood-trimmed dining room. Expansive windows take in the bustling city view. Expect a lively bar scene at happy hour and before downtown shows.

The menu focuses on expertly cooked seafood, both trendy and traditional. Fresh trout almondine garnished with slivered almonds rests on satisfyingly creamy mashed potatoes. The hefty lunch po'boy bursts with crispy fried oysters and a side of thick steak fries. More imaginative is the rich grilled salmon entree crowned with kalamata olives, feta, pickled onions and balsamic reduction. On the lighter side, try large sea scallops over greens with a tangy Asian citrus vinaigrette. Finish with dense Key lime pie, dressed up with berries and whipped cream.

The Park Shops garage takes you to the first-floor lobby of the restaurant. Enter the garage from Caroline or Austin streets. Massa's validates.
