    First time to Mastroes Ocean Club, but long time patron of Mastroes. Food was just as great as any Mastroes. Since I'd never been there and it was a special occasion, I requested a view table. We were seated on a small patio, which had a spectacular view, but felt very excluded from the rest of the action inside. Next time I'll want to sit inside. Dinner was wonderful...steak perfect, salad, sides, and martini were incredible! No birthday butter cake was offered though. I guess the front desk forgot to tell anyone.

    Mastro's Ocean Club is the perfect venue for special occaisions. We dined on the patio andit was perfect. The ocean view and beautiful sunset made the evening extra special. The service was outstanding. My only issue was that the Halibut was very dry; not what I expected from the "Ocean Club". My husband had the steak and his dinner was "excellent".

    Service and ambiance are outstanding. For the price the food should have been better. It felt like who ever designed the salad menu had the motto, "The more items and dressing the better". The main courses were mediocre. I did not get the impression a "real" chef was working back in the kitchen.

    MY HUSBAND AND DECIDED TO CELEBRATE OUR 18TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT MAESTRO. THIS WAS OUR 1ST VISIT TO MAESTRO AND WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. EXPECTATIONS WERE HIGH AND THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINTMENT. WE WERE SEATED ON THE PATIO WITH THE BEST VIEW. THE TASTE, TEMPERATURE AND PRESENTATION OF THE FOOD WAS PERFECT. I AM NOT A REAL STEAK EATER, BUT I NOW HOW A NEW CRAVING FOR BONE IN RIB EYE. TO TOP OFF OUR EXPERIENCE, WE WERE SURPRISED WITH A "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" DESERT PLATE. OVERALL 2 THUMBS UP.

    Mastros ocean club never disappoints. I took my friend here for her birthday and they treated us so well. Were a much younger crowd but enjoy great food. The filet was absolutely tender. It was cooked medium rare as requested. The sea bass was breaded and had a dash of spice. It was so good! Highly recommend this place to those who enjoy good steak and seafood, wine and ambiance.

    While a chain, Mastro's serves some of the best food. Not for those watching the calories, portions are huge, including side dishes. Also not for those watching the wallet. Bread is amazing as are cocktails. Service is always very professional. Great for celebrations. Not healthy enough to do often. Classic steakhouse with lots of ocean options. Sushi menu designed by Nick San Cabo chef. Really hopping big bar. We came with a table reservation and the bar was so much fun we decided to take a table there.

    When we go to Mastro's we expect and have previously received excellence. On this occasion 1.) The service was excellent 2.)Wife's steak was requested a slightly pink/Medium +. It came rare. They took it back and returned with the same steak a bit more than rare. 3.) We each ordered a Martini, and we brought a bottle of our favorite wine. On other trips they have waived the $35.00 corkage but not this time. 4.) We ordered the Crème Brule, took one but and knew that something was wrong. We told the server who returned stated that the sugar used was incorrect and that they had to throw out that batch. The manager came by and offered us the Butter Cake. They took $10.00 off the bill and did not charge us for the Butter Cake.

    I have been a fan of Mastro's steak and seafood. I had great food and experience one to two years ago. This is my first time this year to Mastro's Newport location. I was very disappointed and felt embarrassed by the unfresh oysters and extremely salty king crab legs, not mentioned the steak was chewy, lobster tail was over cooked. I am not sure if I want to bring my important clients to this "famous" steak house again, or just because it was a Thursday night, so we didn't get the same quality food as Friday or Saturday nights?

    The food and cocktails were fantastic, and it was such a treat to enjoy the small outdoor dining area for our first wedding anniversary. While we expected the food, drinks, and environment to be fantastic based on the price tag, we were completely blown away by the service. I wish I could remember our server's name, but I cannot say enough how delightful she was. Thank you for helping to make our first anniversary so special.

    I made reservations for my husband's 70th birthday; when we arrived I mentioned to the waiter that we were also celebrating my son's birthday. At dessert, he showed up with a slice of cake for each of them, which was very nice. Our waiter was excellent - attentive and no obnoxious up-selling. Everyone who had beef loved their meal. My halibut was very fresh, cooked perfectly, and a generous sized serving - it just didn't have much flavor. Some sort of sauce or seasoning would have been good. My grandson ordered cheesecake - it was a huge piece and delicious. Not really a place to take small kids, but our grandsons are 10 and 14 and they were treated respectfully and attentively by the waiter. All in all, a great dinner and experience.

    We celebrated a family birthday here and everyone was impressed. The steaks are incredible. The halibut was the best I have ever had. Get it with their special seasoning. And the butter cake is to die for! A must eat. Amazing views of the coast, and although we were inside you can still enjoy the sunset.

    the restaurant is beautiful, service and food were excellent. We went for our 37 year wedding anniversary and the evening was excellent. The only negative about the whole night was that when we were first seated we were given probably the worst table in the restaurant right next to a hallway where every single customer walks pass, which was very disappointing. But our request to be moved was accommodated and we were given a very nice location in the open air patio which was perfect. The steaks of course are excellent as were the scallops and the lobster mashed potato's were outstanding. The fact that all of the staff new it was our anniversary and congratulated us made the evening extra special.

    We had a nice evening celebrating our 29th anniversary. We had to wait a bit for a nice table but it could have been since we were 15 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic. Food was great but the order was incorrect causing us to eat a bit staggered. But the waitress gave me free lobster bisque to hold me over while waiting on my entree. And the desserts are to die for!

    Seated at a window table as I requested. Too bad there were flies we had to keep swatting away. When we embarrassingly told the server, she opened the window and cleared them away. Food was good; lobster gnocchi was not as good as Brunos in Fullerton :( We mentioned how much we loved the butter cake and they brought a slice of chocolate bday cake which we didn't eat because we don't care for chocolate cake, again :(

    Mastro's is a very good restaurant and nice for special occasions. However, in my opinion it is overrated and over priced. Following is why: 1. Menu is outdated, feels like a 1990's restaurant 2. Waiter and buss staff were great, but no floor mgr checked in on us, at Mastro's prices, you expect a manager to personally check in. 3. Same quality of food can be found out Flemings and many other OC restaurants for a little bit less of a price point. 4. For price point you would expect all tables to have some level of privacy, at Mastro's there are some really bad table's that share booth type seating on one side where it it no different many family restaurants at $15 per person price point. Host even tried first to sit us at the bar; really!

    our kids made reservations for us for our anniversary--and made arrangements to have champagne at the table when we arrived and picked up the tab. The waiter was very good and extremely accommodating--not at all arrogant as you might expect from this seemingly very hot dining location on a packed Saturday night. We were somewhat difficult deciding what to eat and how much, and the waiter could not be more helpful in customizing the menu for us. Nothing was "can't be done" and lots of helpful suggestions The Champagne was chilled perfectly even for our late arrival, and the food was very good. it was only at the end that we were told, there was NO TAB. The service was superb. Recommend it for special occasions--you will not be disappointed.

    Had a great birthday dinner with my family. Had a very good server Alisha and a wonderful meal. My son had the bone in filet. The best steak I've ever tasted even better and more flavorful then the bone in rib eye!! Several of us had the jumbo prawns 3 of them over a pound, biggest shrimp I've ever seen though mine were a bit over cooked. Also they have an extensive wine list with wines I can't find anywhere else. Loved the Kistler Chardonnay!!! Overall a wonderful night
