Diner Reviews
  • "Went there for my birthday but was disappointed on the wagyu steak I ordered, it was very fatty and lots tendons that made me hard to chew n swallow. And found a very small piece (green bean size) of bone with my steak and almost broke my teeth. My husband ordered Toma Hawk Steak and wasn't that tasty or as expected. We had better at Beverly Hills location. Also the service was slow, we got done with our meal but waited almost 20 mins for our waiter to come clean and pack our left over. In general, it wasn't worth for the money paid. This is the first time with such bad experience."

  • "We dine regularly at high end restaurants and steakhouses in particular. This is probably the best meal we have ever had. The tomahawk steak was cooked perfectly and the prawns were so large and delicious. We dined on the outside patio, the weather was perfect. The service was great, Shane was our server and he made some good recommendations including the cherry crisp for dessert."

  • "Food and service are superb! We usually go there for a special occasion and this time it was my daughters birthday party. Would highly recommend it. Make sure to try the bone in filet and the butter cake. Nice wine list and some appetizers that are different from the norm."

  • "Second time dining here. First time was excellent and second time not so great. Food did not taste very fresh. My table got 2 porter house medium cooked and it was just super hard on the outside. Overall customer service could not get any better but the steaks need some improving."

  • "My boyfriend surprised me for our anniversary because he had never been and knew it was very nice there. I have been to the Palm Desert location and had a great experience. At the Costa Mesa location, it was a complete waste of money. In my opinion, the waiter we had was very rude and that it is over priced."

  • "The decor is fabulously original and modern. The ambiance is comfortable yet very classy. The servers are very well knowledgeable and attentive, they take very excellent care of their customers. Mastros has incredible martinis, seafood, steak, and ooooooh the deserts are worth saving room for."

  • "The food was excellent. I don't mind paying for great food, but the drinks were rediculously priced. We had 2 mix drinks, house well, and it cost $30. Service was great(5), but the hostess is whom we had issues with, so I have to give them a poor rating. We were there before a play so it was still light and we were one of the first diners that evening. They sat us right next to the door leading to the outside patio. Bright light shining in. We asked to move off to the side but they said it was reserved. Well, we had reservations too. They had nothing available and the dining area we were in was empty for about 1/2 the time we were there. Restaurant was dark and the valet said we didn't need our sunglasses, we did."

  • "Love this place! Food is always great! The only slight complaint I might have is the waiters tend to be in a rush to clear out the table in between courses. But some people might prefer that."

  • "Kudos to General Manager Peter for handling my poorly undercooked filet which happened twice even though it was butterflied! Stepping up to my disappointment will get me to go back again. This was our first time there and we didn't get off on the right foot but I was more than satisfied at the end of the night!!"

  • "At a business celebration - 3 members of my party of 5 had the same entrée....and all had stomach issues following. When I notified the restaurant (took me two days to get to a manager) they told me that that particular entrée was very rich and that they had no complaints for other guests that evening. I was very put off by the reaction and the fact it took me days to get to a member of management."

  • "Great food and outstanding Service as always with Masto's. We enjoyed sitting on the Patio and don't understand why many People do not like sitting there."

  • "With reservations we were seated immediately. From the bread basket to the desert our meal was one of the best we have had in a while. Our waiter was very attentive but not overly so. The shrimp I had was alittle over done but not enough to send it back. All in all it was very relaxing and enjoyable evening."

  • "First time visit to celebrate 4th July so the restaurant was quieter than usual. Service was great throughout. My guest's steak was overdone. Handled efficiently and courteously, we weren't charged for it. Cocktails were fabulous, tried the Lemon Drop and pomegranate martini. Served over dry ice so look spectacular. Portions are generous so two courses with sides might suffice for the average appetite. Tried the Wagyu strip. 8oz defeated me, but it was delicious. Recommend having it at most rare-medium to fully appreciate the flavour. Others had the 12oz bone-in filet (medium). MUST try the lobster mashed potatoes. We had to share dessert - don't go past the butter cake. Wine list extensive with many local choices. Expensive but worth it!"

  • "We opted to stay and eat at the lounge area where there was live music. It was still romantic even with the moderate noise level by the bar. Our waiters were very conscientious...always topping off my wine glass (got a bottle of Malbec) and water. The food was to die for...hubby got the Kobe steak and I got the Chilean sea bass...we chose spinach and mushrooms for our sides. No carbs Lol. For dessert, we shared a crème brulee and got the bday chocolate cake. So yummy! It was such a blissful, romantic evening :)"

  • "Steak is a must. So tender and juicy. Cook them just the way you ordered it... unlike other steakhouses, they either over/under cook! Kept me thinking about that steak the whole week."

  • "Chose Mastros to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. We were presented with 2 complimentary flutes of champaign to celebrate. The food was fantastic the porterhouse steak was the best I ever had in my life. Desert was also on the house. Service was great throughout. I highly recommend Mastros. I would say that the restroom attendant is unnecesary. Very old school and does not add to the dining experience."

  • "Filet Tenderloin that just melts in your mouth! And you just have to make room for the best Butter Cake with freshly whipped cream. It's the greatest! You can't go wrong dining at Mastro's. Perfect pre-theatre meal!"

  • "Being my first time at Mastro's, I was impressed with the atmosphere. This was a birthday celebration for my honey of 9 years. The prices were a shock but the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered aps, and a couple entrees; a filet, a double-cut porterhouse, shrimp cocktail (where do they find these oxymoronic sized sea creatures?), lobster mashed potatoes, chopped salad and creamed corn. Everything was top-quality!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The filets were not prepared well and was sent back and the second filet was still incorrectly cooked. The New York Strip was too salty and too much gristle throughout the cut. The restaurant was extremely noisy--not energetic--and it was impossible to carry on conversation across the table. The serving staff was attentive."

  • "I took my daughter to Mastro's for her birthday and she and I loved everything about this restaurant. The food was prepared excellent, the waiter could have been better, the ambiance was outstanding. I will definitely go back to this restaurant again soon for dinner."

  • "Arrival: I had a reservation for 8 PM, but still the ladies at the reception noted I had to wait, 40 minutes, I do not understand the purpose of the reservation though. The reception ladies had a very bad attitude, not pleasant to deal with them, made diminish the experience. Eating: At the table, the service was outstanding the food the same, could have not gotten any better waiter, it made the experience great."

  • "I almost walked out of Mastros because we were seated over half an hour after our reservation time. Once we were seated, the service was great but they need to work on their front desk service. The hostess stand is a mess. Also, I wish they would advertise that they only have valet service. Not everyone carries cash all of the time. Luckily, I had a money with me that night but I was never informed of the parking situation. Aside from all that,'the good was wonderful."

  • "This was our first visit to Mastro's Steakhouse and it did not disappoint. I had the 22oz bone-in Rib-eye and it was fantastic. Cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. We also had the chilled crab legs, a wonderful taste and great quality. The bread basket was some of my favorites. I would highly recommend Mastro's for a good steak and will definitely be back."

  • "Made reservations on open table for our anniversary, they sat us in the bar. The bar was very loud, made it hard to hear each other over the music and party scene. The food was good, not great. I enjoyed the ahi appetizer and lobster mashed potatoes. I heard so many great things about this place, when we finally ate here it was just ok. I would like to note that our server was outstanding and the wine was poured generously."
