Mastro's Ocean Club - Newport Beach
Delicious generous main coursesDelicious generous main courses served a la carte. Delightful array of traditional and unique sides. Bread basket was amazing.
All portions and drinks were very generous. Even if you are a chocoholic, treat yourself to the butter cake - it is a tender unctuous, sweet and slightly salty treat served with a scoop of ice cream on top - yum.
Definitely special occasion as it is wildly expensive.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to Mastro's CostaHave been to Mastro's Costa Mesa and Beverly Hills - kind of prefer those. This one has more emphasis on seafood (hence the Ocean Club part), and was less quiet/refined/special occasion like and more bustling.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNew locationWe've been meaning to try Mastro's in this location for years and finally did. While we prefer the smaller, mor intimate setting of the Thousand Oaks location, two things you can always count on from Mastro's:
Not cutting edge, but basic food executed extremely well. Everything is perfectly done, seasoned, etc.
Definitely a go-to place for special occassions.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the LineOverall there is no words to say how great this restaurant was. If your looking for the best in the area this is the place to go.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceI took my husband to Ocean Club for Father's Day. Everything we were served was wonderful. We absolutely loved it. The crab cakes were excellent. Even the bread was delightfully good. Try the cheese bread. It is to die for.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThat was my first time atThat was my first time at Mastro's and I am looking forward to the next special occassion to be able to go again!!! From the moment we were greeted by our wonderful server to when we left the table completely satiated, it was a great dining experience!!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM5 STAR ExperienceWe had a special Family Celebration and the Mastro's Eperience could not have been better.

Loved the family style side dishes. Not a mediocre choice in the bunch. We would highly recommend this dining experience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out with friends!The service was great, the food was excellent!

Will definately return.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, service and musicFood is delicious...fresh and yummy. Be careful not to order too much, we ate less than 1/2 of what we ordered. I never thought I'd endorse a piano bar but they have the most amazing piano bar entertainment....singing current songs (Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj) as well as golden oldies. It's my 4th time here and I continue to be super impressed.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing! Our serverFood was amazing! Our server was very sweet and attentive!

We were surprisingly seated in the best area of the restaurant - patio. i've been a few times and have never sat there (table 303). Kim was our waitress and she was more than delightful! For future dining experiences, i will make sure i request to be served by Kim.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the food for 6 of usAll of the food for 6 of us was excellent. Very good quality and very-well prepared. The downer was Kim and her wait staff once we finished our appetizers. Long wait to receive our main entrees. Our appetizer plates were not cleared until our main entrees were delivered. Not the quality service that we have experienced and enjoyed in the past visits to Mastro's when we have traveled to Newport Beach and Las Vegas.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceMastro's in Vegas is our favorite restaurant so wanted to give their location in Newport Beach a try - well we were NOT let down and had a wonderful dining experience and meal. We had to bring our 10 month old son with us (so we made an early reservation) and our waitress and staff were very accommodating. Bone in filet delicious (as always) and prepared just as we asked and scallops were very tasty as well. Since we were there early, we were not able to enjoy the sunset, but if you are going there to watch the sunset, then they have a beautiful sun room in which to view it. Would definitely go back on our next visit to Newport Beach.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRomanticI felt like a queen! Service is excellent and menu was well described! Smooth evening dinner.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood steaks -- a little pricy.Good steaks -- a little pricy. Love the ambiance at the Newport Beach location....5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingDouble lobster tails, mashed potatoes, shrimp cocktail- everything was amazing. Our waiter also very knowledgable. Bday cake a chocolate mousse was to die for,5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI keep coming back!Our server Ryan was so down to earth- he made our experience at mastros that much better, very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. I loved everything about it.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great nightOutstanding! Romantic! Perfect! Fantastic ambience, great food & wine, awesome service!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and Fantastic ServiceMastro's is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. The portions are generous and the quality of the food is top notch. The service was fanastic! Our server was around when he needed to be and timed everything perfectly so that we had a lovely spaced out meal. I would highly recommend the filet mignon and the fillet of sole. Leave room for dessert and make sure you try the butter cake, it was one of the best desserts I have had in a long time.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Friday NightAmbiance was energetic and friendly. The bar area was packed. The food was amazing, I had the sea bass, and my friends ordered the filet with the lobster mac and cheese.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationWe were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary and spent the night at nearby, Pelican Hill Resort. We had reserved a window/ocean view table and were seated promptly. Our waitress was very helpful in her suggestions and answering our questions. We had an appetizer, split a salad (at our waitress' suggestion), and our entrees with sides. Yes, this is an expensive restaurant, but they serve generous portions. We were even given a complimentary, full-portion dessert for our anniversary! To say we left full is an understatement.
If my husband had any complaints, it's that he assumed he had to "dress-up" (slacks & shirt), and noticed several men in shorts and flip-flops...oh well....5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceMastro's Ocean Club was wonderful. The service was prompt but not rushed. The food was excellent. Spendy, but expected for the total package. If you are dining for a special occasion, advise your waiter and you may experience a wonderful Chocolate Sin cake. My husband ordered the NY strip, I had the Lobster tails. Both prepared to perfection. We also had a side of Roasted Brussel sprouts and the Sautéed Scallops for an appetizer. Excellently made - across the board. The breads were great. We saw many folks taking home 'doggy bags". We were totally stuffed and content when we left. The view of the ocean added to the ambience. Reservations a must. $250 for all bove including a bottle of wine and well deserved tip! Impressive experience!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but tasty!The food was delicious and the portions generous but the prices are not for the faint of heart! Spending over $100 per person is definitely only reserved for special occasions. The restaurant is quite noisy.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Birthday!We celebrated my fiance's birthday here and had an exquisite time. The food is delicious, the service incredible, and the live music was great. We will definitely be back for more special occasions.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly superior (but noisy)Absoutely gorgeous room, terrific service from server and support staff (bussers), truly excellent food.
Very noisy room - really, really noisy. Even though the floor is carpeting with very thin industrial carpeting, the ceiling is wood and low -- so noise just blasts across the room.
Shouting to my fellow diners really did detract from the overall experience which, in all other ways, was truly superior!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very pleasurableWe had a very pleasurable experience and will definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerMastro's was the perfect setting for 2013 Mother's Day. The service was great. The food was fantastic; from the pretzel bread to the seafood and steak, spinach, garlic mashed potatoes to the dessert of Warm Butter Cake. I do believe this restaurant "can" be kid friendly if you go early enough (like we did). However, there is no kids menu that we were told about. It is a very pricey restaurant but well worth it. Normally, I would say adults only but on special occasions I think children will find plenty of things to enjoy. Our 9 year old did!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable eveningWe chose Mastro's to celebrate a 21st birthday. Every interaction with the personnel was upbeat and friendly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time we were more thanFirst time we were more than pleased with the whole experience .
Would highly recommend to anyone
Thanks for a great dining experience5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of 8 and theWe had a group of 8 and the table made it very easy to have conversation. The setting was quite lovely and the staff was amazing and made us feel special and relaxed.
The chef's special lobster bisque is wonderful and we all enjoyed our meals. A table favorite was the bone-in filet and the halibut.
But leave room for dessert as you will want the butter cake.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the best!We love Mastr'os. Every detail is perfect every time. It's so much more than a meal. We eat at a lot of nice restaurants, but EVERY TIME we're celebrating anything, Mastro's is our first choice.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service can't be beatEverything about Mastro's Ocean Club is upscale - from the cars in the parking lot to the amazing wine list, everything is first class. The food here is always delicious and served perfectly. And the service is unbeatable. No wonder this place is always packed, regardless of the season.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely RecommendFrom the moment we entered Mastro's Ocean Club to when we left, everything was amazing. Great service, great food, and a gorgeous view! =]5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably the best dining experienceProbably the best dining experience of my life! I am 70 years old and have been to many wonderful restaurants, but this was by far the best! Our waiter could have not been nicer.
The pepper steak was beyond belief.
If you haven't been to this restaurant , make a reservation today!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Business DinnersMastro's was excellent as usual. The seafood tower always makes a great impression on new customers and the seafood is excellent. The large shrimp, oysters, mussels, crab and lobster are tough to beat. Steaks were very good (although not the best I've had) and so were the scalloped potatoes. We usually have the lobster mash which is excellent, but tried the scalloped this time and found another winner. The signature butter cake was also excellent. The wines were generally good, but most are 2010's and still a little young. Also had live music (piano player and singer) which were a very nice touch. Also at the right sound level so you can have reasonable conversations. An excellent choice for a business dinner or treat your spouse.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM70th Birthday CelebrationMy husband and I celebrated his 70th birthday at Mastro's Ocean Club. It is a beautiful restaurant and we had a lovely table next to a window overlooking the ocean. My husband must have a low sodium, no sodium meal which can be challenging dining out. Our servers were very helpful, cheerful and attentive without intruding.The kitchen was most accomodating. We enjoyed a lovely chilean sea bass and a filet mignon as well as green beans with toasted almonds--all very tasty with no salt. I had mentioned in my reservation that this was a special birthday and we were surprised with chocolate dipped strawberries and whipped cream with happy 70th birthday written around the edge of the plate. A very nice touch and end to a special meal.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, drinks, dessert andFood, drinks, dessert and service were spectacular. We could not have had a better experience.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here multiple times.Been here multiple times. The best steakhouse in OC and LA! Get the Mac and cheese and lobster mash!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWould Return for the Service Alone!We had an early res (before 6PM) to celebrate an anniversary on a recent Friday night. The restaurant was quiet when we first arrived but filled in nicely as the evening went on. The place had a nice energy and from where we were seated in the solarium, we were afforded excellent views of the ocean and sunset. The food was of the high quality you would expect at an establishment such as this (very fresh and bountiful seafood and tender steaks) but it was our servers, Mark and Katie were the highlight of the evening. They provided phenomenal service and were very knowledgeable about food prep, sourcing of ingredients and wine selections. They made us feel very welcome and recognized our anniversary with a customized plate of butter cake.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating my wife'sWe were celebrating my wife's birthday and your attententiveness made the experience even more memorable. Thank you for the dessert, it was yum yu.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary Dream DateI made a note it was our one year anniversary. They made it truly special. Although when we were seated they were going to put us in the main dining room so we had to ask for a more private table and the receptionist didnt seem to mind. They found us a great table by the window. They also made sure we had the world famous Butter cake which will absolutely Rock your soul! They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on the plate in Chocolate. Everyone was so helpful and polite. The Waiter suggested a better option for my wife's entree, I think he must've read her mind because it was perfect! Lastly even the bread guy made sure we had some great bread to take with us. If you've ever had a baguette in France, this bread tops that! Cheers Mastro's4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMone of my favorite restaurantsone of my favorite restaurants of all time.
