    The experience equaled previous experiences at other Mastro's. The ambiance at this particular property is not as warm or intimate as others (Costa Mesa being superior). The food however is as good as in other locations. Def prefer to come to Mastro's over similar venues like Flemings or Mortons.

    Where to start? Entering, you notice the lively bar scene, later, you hear wonderful musicians entertaining the crowd. It looks fun, a bar area to which you'd return! When we have dinner at City Hall, we always ask to be seated closer to the bar area, there is a glass wall so the sounds of the bar don't really come into the dining room however, you can see all the action and the live music is audible but not over powering. Our food was superb! One of us had warm spinach salad, another had the chopped salad. Both were very generous in size, as are all the salads and side dishes. The halibut was tender, the bone in ribeye was heavenly and the filet oh, so tender! The favorite side dish was the lobster mashed potatoes! Wine was perfect - a Pinot, Argyle, from Oregon. The absolute best part of the dinner though, was the Warm Butter Cake. It outsells all the other desserts, our server (who by the way, really enhanced our visit!) told us. This is something you MUST order. We split it 4 ways and as rich and heavenly as it was, we all wanted more (but were happy the next day that we didn't!). For us, it is one of our very, very favorite spots for special occasions.

    I have frequented Mastros in Costa Mesa, CA, Beverly Hills, Thousand Oaks, Las Vegas, Scottsdale etc for many years. The USDA prime steaks are consistently excellent and arrive on a sizziling plate. The two best cuts in my view are the 48 oz double cut porterhouse for two and the Chef's Cut 20 oz NY strip steak, which is also a thick steak. The service is always impeccable and the management knows how to treat VIP customers. Wherever Mastros is located, you can rest assured that you will have an awesome meal. The Lobster mashed potatoes and crab gnocci are also excellent as are many other sides and appetizers. I like the bone marrow and the dungenous crab cocktail (nice portion and great for sharing.

    City Hall is fabulous. Service is impeccable and the food is heavenly. Steaks are like butter and, speaking of butter, the butter cake for dessert is worth saving room for. We had a wonderful evening celebrating a special birthday.

    Ordered a bone in rib eye medium rare and it came out almost purple in the middle, not cooked at all. Very disappointed when they took it back and brought it to me a few minutes later inedible. I had never been to Mastros and was very excited to have a Steak there. The butter cake however was amazing! Service was not typical of high end steak houses. Our waiter only checked on us a few times and he seemed really busy with a lot of other tables. Usually the service is really good at this type restaurant.

    This was our second time at here, and it turned out to be disappointing. Our server, although very polite, seemed to be 'scripted' with the way she told us about the specials - she didn't seem to 'connect' with us. She was knowledgeable about wine and made a couple of recommendations for us. We chose one of those and it was excellent. When the food came out, they got our orders mixed up - not a big deal but when you're at a place that charges $50 for a steak, I expect better than that. 3 of the 4 of us ordered steaks to be cooked medium and the other person wanted hers cooked rare. All the steaks were done the same - medium. The person who ordered the rare, ate it anyways. We all thought the food was very good, however, when the server came by to ask about the food , we told her. She looked at the steaks, and agreed. She then offered to bring out a new one (right thing to do) but she didn't come around to ask until we were already half way through our meals (not a good thing). She then brought her manager over and he apologized and asked if there was anything he could do. He offered a replacement steak or desserts or an after dinner drinks for the table (right thing to do). We took him up on the after drink. When the drinks arrived, the server said she wasn't sure if the manager explained that the free drinks were for the ladies only or not but they decided to pick up all the drinks. ??? We were puzzled by that comment and thought they'd taken a nice recovery and blown it. In a nutshell, our bill (before tip) for the four of us was around $650. For that amount we expected better service.

    We had a delightful anniversary dinner here. Steaks were great, especially the bone-in filet. Best crab appetizer ever and a surprise "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on our dessert. It was a very busy night but the wait staff was appropriately attentive and helpful; we didn't feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience as well as the food.

    We came here to celebrate our 7 yr anniversary. We made reservations here on OT. In the comment box we said it was our anniversary, and they kindly gave us a slice of chocolate cake mmmm. We order the 32 oz ribeye and shared two side which is more than enough. The only two dislikes were it was really loud and I couldn't hear my husband speak. Second, they bring you a nice arrangement of a bread basket. I didn't want to get full of of bread, but expected to take it home. When I got home after they packed my food they left out my bread and I was really looking forward to having it with my leftovers. Overall really nice place.

    I have been to Ocean Club a few times and loved it everytime. This time I wanted to try the steak for a change. I had the 12 oz bone in filet. I was dissappointed. There really wasnt much of any type of flavor to the meat. For $56, I expected it to melt in my mouth. We had the ahi tuna and calamari for appetizers and both were really good. The roasted brussel sprouts were also very good. The lobster mashed potaotoes were my favorite in the past but they didn't taste as good as they did a few years ago. They were just OK and for $35, they should taste spectacular. The warm butter cake is worth every calorie. That is the most delicious dessert I have ever had. Overall, it was a good dining experience, just not as good as expected.

    The restaurant was beautiful, the food was delicious; however, the wait for a waitress was frustrating. Other waitresses came to our table asking if we've been helped. This went on for over 20 mins. Once our waitress was found, the service was better. The wait really put a damper on the dinner.

    Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Food and service were great. Never have to ask for anything because they are always on top of it. They even recognized my boyfriend's birthday which was great. We have dined at every Mastros restuarant in Scottsdale and love them all. This one is really great for everyone. We saw buisness people, couples, friends, and families. They cater to all. Thank you City Hall for a great night!

    This is a busy restaurant. Don't know why. Steaks were good, not great. Definitely not worth the money. A Bambay Sapphire martini was $19. Bar bill one martini, two beers, two Alaskan King Crab legs cut in half for easy eating, $32.00, a total of $87.43. I sent one half piece back to the kitchen because it was almost empty. They did send me another half and returned the one I sent back, which was impressive. I just was not happy with the food. The onion rings were heavily breaded with no flavor. ($11.00) The side of Gnocchi was too heavy on the truffle flavor, $32.00. Keeping this short, two steaks, one rack of lamb, two sides, two beers, $280.67 with tax. Service was amazing! There are much better places to eat for less.

    Seems like Maestro's may be slipping. Drinks were mis-made and inconsistent, three of our five steaks were not cooked to correct temp, wait staff was disorganized and too chummy, the food expediters plopped plates down as though they were serving pancakes at the local waffle house, bussers intruded on the table as though we weren't there having a conversation, etc. Our dinner party was just not the type of experience expected. What's going on at City Hall?

    We went to Mastro's City Hall because I've enjoyed Mastro's Ocean Club so much and wanted to try their steakhouse. We weren't disappointed. We were celebrating a grad school graduation/new job and seeing old friends. Lynn was spectacular! She knew how to keep things moving, we talked A LOT without being intrusive or hurrying. I had the bone-in filet and it was perfectly prepared and melted in my mouth. The sides were delicious and the heirloom tomato and burrata salad was to die for! I would highly recommend either of these Mastro properties. If you're going to the Ocean Club you have to ask for Duke!

    I live in North Carolina but get out to Phoenix on business twice a year. This is a must every trip! Always just an amazing experience. I've done a lot of traveling and eaten a lot of high class steakhouses, but this one is without a doubt the absolute best steakhouse EVERYTIME I eat there. The bone in filet is simply amazing. I recommend the lettuce wedge(share it) and the lobster mashed potatoes. It's incredible!

    The food was great. The atmosphere was a little strange. This was our first visit and we were told it was a nice place to have a date night. We left our children at home to enjoy a nice quiet evening. However, there were two tables with children that were not so quiet. For an expensive date night dinner it would have been nice if the setting was a little more grown up.
