Another Amazing ExperienceWe had a wonderful experience celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday! The food was amazing as always and Sarah our server was excellent! She had great recommendations, a warm personality and she was very professional!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time, same great experienceGetting together with the friends. The meat is wort of driving from a distance. Will return.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steaks in town!You can not go wrong with any Steak on the menu. The sides are also delicious; love the Gorgonzola Mac and Cheese and Lobster mash potatoes. Whatever you have make sure to leave room for the Buttercake; it's worth the trip by itself.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentPlease pay a visit to this restaurant - the food and service are outstanding5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Night!Really loved this restaurant, the food was great, our server was incredible and the atmosphere was perfect! Also, it was a nice touch when the restaurant called the next day to thank us for coming in...classy touch !5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter was awesome food notOur waiter and wait staff were great. We ordered three different steaks and the best was our sons filet. All cooking temperatures were ordered the same and all came very different. Bone in filet was tough and ribeye was okay. The best side was the shoe string fries, brussel sprouts burnt and Mac n cheese undercooked. The Mastro room was great, quiet with garden-like view. We would continue to drive to Flemings or Ruth Chris in the future, just wish we could bring our waiter with!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dining experience at Mastro'sI love having a reservation, walking in and being seated immediately, a wonderful convenience. We save up once a year to dine at this establishment and find it extremely rewarding. I cannot get steak this good in California that I have found. It's cooked to perfection. My son stated the lemonade was the best he's ever tasted. We didn't feel rushed in our meal. The piano player was playing Pink Floyd, amazing! The service was phenomenal. We are treated as if we were special customers & appreciated. The ambience is nice, the food is wonderful. The colossal shrimp was out of this world. Negatives, if any, they changed the fry oil from peanut to olive and it affected the texture of the fries :( Everything else was fantastic. Sincerely, Diane S.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMthe restaurant, the service,the restaurant, the service, the food, is always great. cannot hear guests in my party because
the nose level is so high. could not even hear the live singer at all. and it was crowded.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were outstanding, but we had 2 Grey Goose Martinis and they cost $21 a piece! That is outrageous.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMastro'sI took my family there for Mother's day brunch. The service was outstanding as my son's steak had to be cooked twice and it was still not what he ordered but our waiter made up for whatever else was lacking in the kitchen. My halibut was too plain but everything else and the sides were fantastic. I would return to this restaurant often if it weren't for the outrageous prices. This makes this restaurant on my list only for occasions, where you don't mind spending $50 + dollars for each entree that comes a la carte! Again, I couldn't praise the service more!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTo die for!We had a wonderful time there. The shrimp cocktail on dry ice was very impressive and the shrimp were perfect big and not rubbery the horseradish was really hot and fresh! The wedge salad and pretzel bread was a big hit. The New York bone in was very good and we had to try the gnocchi which was so good but so rich but we were warned. The service from hostess waiter to bus boy was excellent. Will will go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMay2013The first thing that struck us as we entered the restaurant was the friendliness of ALL the employees.The elegance of the restaurant setting and the vibrant atmosphere made us feel we were in a special place. The prices were high but the food was absolutely fabulous! We can't afford to dine as we did, too often, but for a special occasion it was the best value. My wife's rack of lamb and my in-bone filet were magnificent; crab cakes and scallops in Risotto were superb. Portions? Don't eat before dining here. The Cherry Crisp with ice cream and fresh whipped cream were sinfully delicious. Fine breads and wine, a good bar drink: Wow! Everything, and I mean everything including our waitress were outstanding. We will be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMastros May 9thWe had the loveliest server...Allana (sp)! She was genuinly warm, attentive and accomodating. The food is always good..almost goes without saying but service varies by location. Allana is GEM!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantastic evening.....The food was exceptional and the service was even better. I have yet to be disappointed by Mastro's. The atmosphere, bar and experience are worth every penny. Can't wait to return.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the time you are greetedFrom the time you are greeted at the door to the time you depart, you are given complete attention. A joy to dine. One never needs to ask for assistance as they are always nearby.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMService was exceptional andService was exceptional and our waitress was very well versed about the menu. It was my birthday and she made it a great experience I will definitely go back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServicePeter was a terrific server, he was very helpful and informative. I wish that he would asked US if WE had a special occasion (he asked everyone else!), because we did but it was not acknowledged. The food was great, the Opa with Miso Buerre Blanc and the sweet potato fries were the best.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe went there to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Great food, wonderful service, fantastic wines. Can't afford to go there very often, but will return for special occasions.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to for a Delicious MealExcellent food and service. The beef was delicious and prepared to perfection. Salad and side-dishes are large portions that are easily shared. Wait-staff was very attentive and checked back within a couple of minutes to make sure everything was prepared to our liking and that we had everything we needed...I really like a wait-staff that genuinely appears to be concerned about meeting our expectations. Great place to go. The only minor draw-back is the dining room is small and not very impressive.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe sauteed shrimp appetizerThe sauteed shrimp appetizer is absolutely delicious! Besides the awesome steaks (Bone-in Ribeye is my fav) the Lobster Mash Potatoes and the Crab & Truffle gnocci's are must haves.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Live Music 7 days per week!Loved eating here twice! The food was perfect, the service was even better! How can some restaurants get it and others completely miss it? I am waiting for one of these to open in my city. Hope it will be soon! Loved the quality of the beef and the gnochci with truffle sauce.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a terrific experience!What a terrific experience! Make sure you allocate enough time to absolutely enjoy your meal there. We are looking to return for special occasions...it's a real treat!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile very pricey ($700 forWhile very pricey ($700 for 5 people [including wine and tip] ) you get what you pay for: 5 star food and service.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely over-priced goodExtremely over-priced good food in a romantic setting.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steakhouse I've Ever Been ToThis was the best restaurant I've ever been to. The steak and salmon were absolutely amazing. I went there for my birthday and they brought out chocolate cake and house made whipped cream. It was absolutely an amazing experience, service was incredible, ambience was out of this world and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great steakhouse. Everything about Mastro's is first-class, elegant and high end dining to the fullest. If I could afford to come here every week I absolutely would.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Mastro's. It was the first time we had the Seafood Tower and it was probably some of the best seafood we have ever had. The service was perfect. We sat in the Outdoor patio which was lovely and much quieter than the main dining room. The bar was so noisy, we considered sitting there, but glad we decided against it. We celebrated a birthday and they did a lovely presentation of dessert. Worth every penny!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMastro's is the best steakMastro's is the best steak house in the Thousand Oaks, area. Beverly hills location is tremendous as well. Steaks are delicious, appetizers are amazing and nice size portions too. We went our 2 younger children and they were made to feel entirley welcome. Our waiter was outstanding - the service is always exceptional.
I can on for hours about the pros - the only con I see is the beer selection is not what one would expect from a world class steak house. NO draft offered at all and the bottle selections were weak, at best. That aside, this an amazing place to enjoy a wonerful meal!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband & myself had aMy husband & myself had a great dinner for my birthday. I enjoyed the wedge salad & my husband enjoyed the chopped salad for starters. Of course the pretzel bread that comes in the bread basket is fabulous. My husband had the Kansas City strip steak which was a little over cooked with no pink like he ordered. I ordered the bone-in filet which was good but also over cooked and not as juicy as I had expected. The mashed potatoes & sautéed asparagus were good. The service was great & we finished with a chocolate cake that our waiter served us gratis for my birthday. We sat in the back room with the fire going in the fireplace & unfortunately couldn't be turned off so they turned the a/c higher to counter it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were outstanding. The only complaint would be the noise. We were one of the first sat in a off-shoot dining room, and a lot of the wait staff would congregate not far away socializing etc. waiting for it to get busy. Then, when it did get busy the tables around us were quite distracting noise wise.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerMy wife and I usually take a table in the bar area for the entertainment and a relaxing meal.
This occasion we requested the wine room where we like to dine when entertaining. The occasion was our 15 year old son's birthday. Along with my wife were three of our son's friends.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals although I found my veal chop to be extra fatty and didn't finish it.
Service was a bit slow due to it being prime time and a Friday evening but overall it was a pleasant experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first Mastro'sThis was our first Mastro's experience but it won't be our last.
Everything about our dinner was superb, including the service. My husband ordered the 18 oz. bone-in filet; he said it was delicious. I loved the Scottish salmon; the outside was just a bit crunchy, the inside moist and flaky.
We loved the lobster mashed potatoes; asparagus was cooked al dente - perfect. Because we wanted to try the butter cake (scrumptious!) we took at least half the potatoes home.
Truly a memorable meal.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a perfect way to celebrateWas a perfect way to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. I would highly recommend Mastro's for a special occasion dinner.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Lamb was Good, The fishThe Lamb was Good, The fish was Good, The chicken was ok, but the Steak was fantastic.
We did not like the twice baked potato at all, it was actually bad, but they did remove the item from the bill.
The bread was horrible, the bagel bread was way to salty but the best of the bunch.
I thought the seating was a little crunched together.
Our favorite was the music and live singing.
2nd favorite was the waiter, he was great.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner made perfect!!!It was our first time trying Mastro's and I couldn't have been more pleased. It was my guest's birthday and he is sober. Our waiter honored my request to offer diet coke with lemon and not offer a cocktail menu, thank you very much. The service was perfect and my house special cocktail was amazing. The service was attentive while still affording our privacy. The chocolate birthday cake was unexpected and delicious. I loved everything about my experience at Mastro's and will definitely return.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRyan is outstanding!Great meal as usual!

Thank you :-)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak & superior waitstaffThe wait staff is stellar, very attentive, and astute to our needs. Great bar, and well made drinks. Steaks are, as one would expect, outstanding. The best brussel sprouts I have ever tasted, and that IS saying something. Wine list is terrific and dessert menu is quite good.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFor steaks and seafood it'sFor steaks and seafood it's hard to beat Mastro's. Food and service are first rate. Prices are high but it's well worth it, especially for a special occasion.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was the highlightThe food was the highlight of course, but we felt the service was exemplary. They maintained the perfect balance of attentiveness without being cloying. The meal was great and the presentation and atmosphere complemented each other nicely. There were so many menu options to choose from I will need to come back several more times to try all the things that caught my eye. Overall it was excellent.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great night at Mastro's....Another great night at Mastro's.....the best place in town.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always dependable,Food is always dependable, service is hit or miss. Portions are large, sharing is a good idea!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service - waiterexcellent service - waiter very helpful with menu and wine selections - food was outstanding. Noise level was was exceedingly loud in bar area which carried over to the dining area - very difficult to have a quiet conversation3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect Birthday dinner dateMy fiancé and I thoroughly enjoy Mastro’s every time we go. The steak is always PERFECT! All of the sides are very large and more than enough to share amongst two, possibly three. The ambiance is always perfect for a night out without the kids. My fiancé enjoys a very specific bottle of wine, which is not sold at Mastro’s, so we bring our bottle. The cork fee is $25 which I thought was a little high. But overall a great experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable evening in LoungeAnother very pleasant experience. Valets and Hostesses were immediately attentive and kind, escorted in by Jimmy. Wonderful service from Meghan. Great Orange Crush from Erica. Very enjoyable music by Wayne & Co. Perfect KC Strip and fabulous Fries by Adrian. Once again thank you all so much, Sharon and I really enjoyed ourselves and appreciate your attention and consideration. LOL, Eric3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA First Class Dining ExperienceI've dined at Mastro's in Thousand Oaks several times for business, but this was the first time I'd done so for personal reasons: my wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. As usual, Mastro's did not disappoint. It was a Saturday night and the the bar was lively and quite energetic as you would expect. We arrived early enough to be able to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail and our martinis were expertly made and served ice cold. We also made a couple of new friends, another couple dining that evening at the bar. When the time came for our reservation, we were seated immediately at an intimate table on the far side of the dining room. Our waiter was very knowledgable about both the wine list and the menu. Highly recommend.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMErin as always was amazing,Erin as always was amazing, best server around.

Excellent service and attention with a smile. Filet, fries, brussels, and warm butter cake were all delicious. The music was just fantastic. It could not have been more perfect for 2 guys that just needed to relax and take a break from, it was really like we left it all behind when we entered and were in a different and wonderful world. And what really makes it so enjoyable, are all of the great people, valets, guests, service, musicians and management were all engaging and kind.
