    Greeter was kurt and dismissive even though we had a reservation. Bar was understaffed. Difficult to get service. Food was excellent however our party of 4 was placed at a table suited for 2 which made for crowded quarters. Unfortunately we were placed near a table of 15 to 20 who were very noisy so dinner conversation wasz difficult. Waiters were excellent.

    Our overall dinning experience was very good the table we were presented with was just amazing sitting us outside next to the fireplace and the ocean view was beautiful. The waiter had a expert knowledge of the menu and good recommendation. Our memories made will last forever and that alone is priceless.

    Food and drink very good along with attentive waitress. Initially taken to bar. Very noisy...O K for a sports bar but not for a nice evening out. Taken to room adjacent to bar. Still overwhelmed with noise. You will have a better time if you are with a group that brings it own noise.

    The service was spectacular and the food was the same. Arrived early and had to wait for allotted time but as soon as 7:15 arrived they came to get us at the bar. All of us tasted the others food and it was awesome. The steaks are unbelievable! If you want to impress a business contact this is the place to do it. I don't see how anyone can miss at this restaurant. By the way, the restaurant called the next day to thank us for having dinner at Ocean Club. A great touch and not expected.

    i had the halibut. It costs $48, as much as the filet! The fish was small, presented plainly, and was very dry and poorly cooked. Over priced, and very mediocre.

    Our group of 12 was celebrating a friend's birthday and asked to be seated in the bar. We were seated in an excellent spot in between the bar and the dining room. Our waiter was especially attentive and gave us excellent service. The food came out just as it was ordered. We all enjoyed a wonderful evening. It could not have been a better choice for a special occasion. The entertainment in the bar was fantastic. We even met the chef. We would highly recommend Mastros Ocean Club in the future.

    Prior to being seated, we waited 30+ minutes after our reservation time and had drinks from the bar with bugs in them served to us. But, of course after we were seated we enjoyed a divine meal -- steak, hamachi, lobster mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, sweet potato fries, all delicious. Ambiance is very newport -- loud, ornate, but there was a very cool piano bar and the restaurant was lively while still allowing for an intimate meal.

    We loved it! Food and service were equally, excellent! The lobster mash potatoes & seafood tower are incredible. While I am a wine drinker, my husband is not. With their generous wine pour.... we were not faced with having to order a bottle and either, hubby drinking wine or having to take home the rest :-)

    The setting was beautiful, the noise was so loud you could not hear each other. Our waiter never came back to out table to check on us. We were served a patatoe dish that was $35 more than the one we ordered. The food was ok but I have had much better dinners at other establishments. Less than impressed.

    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".

    Celebrated my wife's birthday with our 2 daughters. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. The restaurant was noisier than I was anticipating, however it had a very energetic feel and therefore was not an issue. We had great time and would definitely celebrate another special occasion at this restaurant.

    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.

    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.
