  • "I have been eating at Mastros since they opened in Chicago. I have never been disappointed! Always enjoyable, great food, and excellent service."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Traditional NYC/Chicago-style steakhouse very well done. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Service was attentive. Overall an outstanding time"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food and service was great. The place is noisy and dark. I had trouble hearing all of the people at my table."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The core food was outstanding. The appetizers were not of the same quality. Mastro's is very, very loud. In the bar, you need to lean over and literally speak directly into the other person's ear or they have to be good at reading lips. The dining room is almost as loud as the bar. The service was incredibly slow at first; our server was assigned another table of 8+. Drinks came 30 minutes after sitting. It was strange that guys in black suits with electronic ear pieces were roaming the dinning room floor, as if the area needed added security. In summary, great food, but very loud and hard to hold a conversation, not romantic, and service may be unpredictable. They should do better if they want to compete with the best in Chicago."

  • "The service was outstanding but the food was so average and I couldn't have been more dissppointed about spending $180 on my meal. Buttercake helped save face, but my bone in ribeye wasn't even good. Bavette's rib eye puts Mastros to shame. Chicago cut filet and side dishes are also far superior in my opinion. I was extremely underwhelmed and will never go back to Mastros for their mediocre food and outrageous pricing."

  • "Thanks to the staff for puting this over the top. I took care of two tables and the experience went better than planned. Also, thanks to Melissa for taking of seating and coordinating the bills for me. Everyone went above and beyond (as usual)! That is why I keep coming back!! Your people make the difference here."

  • "Love the drinks, they were excellent! The atmosphere is lively and fun. Good for work groups, girls night out, or meeting college friends Graduation Class of 1981!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was very well prepared the service outstanding from bar to table. The drinks are very generous one martini shaker could re-fill a glass easily. A restaurant representative called the next day to thank us for having eaten there, which is very respectful. My only complaint was the noise level - so loud! I would not recommend this restaurant for a date or romantic evening."

  • "The food was outstanding. I'm not sure how they get a steak that hot without burning it, but they do and it tasted awesome. Service was very good. The overall ambience was good, but a bit too dark. I recommend turning up the lights. Waiters should not have to leave a flashlight at the table so you can read the menu."

  • " we went to Mastro's in Chicago to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Our table and server were excellent, and the food was great as usual. Unfortunately the evening was completely ruined when, while we were having our coffee, the manager (Chris) approached me and told me that we were being too loud and that others were complaining. WE WERE THERE CELEBRATING!! We were on the main floor and could hear the music from the bar but not anybody else talking. My wife and I dine out frequently, and we like to continue to go to places where we have had good experiences. I will never again choose to eat at Mastro's. for the price of dining at your restaurant I have many other choices where I will not be treated that way."

  • "The best restaurant I have ever been to, bar none. Food is great, service is great, every detail well handled."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I went in to Mastro's expecting to pay top dollar for a steak, and I was expecting that steak to be the best I had ever eaten. I was spot on...it was the best food I've ever had! Everything was excellent, the french onion soup, the snap peas, the 18 oz bone in filet, and the BUTTER CAKE was to DIE for. The service was excellent and I will continue to visit Mastro's on future visits to Chicago."

  • "Over priced steakhouse, fish overcooked, table of four, with 4 dinners, 2 bottles of wine and two appetizers $600.00"

  • "The staff was very nice and informative. My wife and I dined in for the first time for our anniversary. Everybody we came across was very nice. Not to mention the good was great."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Mastro's is consistently great for a night out. Food and service are top notch. Plenty of options on the menu with traditional steakhouse fare, and a ton of great seafood and veggie options as well. Cocktail menu is extensive. The butter cake dessert is a must do!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Hands down the best steak house in Chicago. Great steaks, fantastic sides & quality service. We ate in the formal dining area which we enjoyed a lot... it appeared to be rather loud in the piano bar area."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "If you want a perfect meal and exceptional dining experience for any reason at all, then Mastro's is your place. I have never had one single complaint in the dozen or so times I've visited. It's perfect for literally any special occasion or even just an immensely enjoyable dinner out on a Monday night."

  • "As a lover of fine steak houses the food service has far exceeded my expectations! I will be dinning here for years to come!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I've dined at Mastros several times before, however, on this occasion I was not allowed to dine because my dining partner was wearing a jogging suit. His attire absolutely, had nothing to do with being seated and eating and I'm sure would not have disrupted the ambience or any of the other guests. While I respect their decision to remain a strict dress code establishment, it was very inconvenient to wait to be seated and then to not be allowed to enter once a table was ready."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Outstanding food & service the steak was cook perfect, the drinks was good. Only thing I would say is it was a little noisy."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Had a delightful dinner at Mastro's. the food, server and atmosphere were perfect for a night out with that special friend. I would recommend a visit here any chance you get. Oh and try the butter cake, you will thank me later!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Mastro's is by far the best dining experience we've had here in Chicago. Our waiter Bill was very knowledgeable and helped is to decide on side dishes for us since we had our 17 & 14 year old children with us. We will definitely be back the next time we visit!!! Almost forgot, the dessert "Butter creme cake" was outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Everything was great. The only issue was the noise level. Even in the dining room table for two we had to raise our voices to talk and be heard."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I was impressed with how professional and attentive the staff was. Of course the food was above excellent. I really enjoyed myself and they even as a courtesy provided a Slice of their Chocolate Cake Dessert at no cost to thank us for celebrating our anniversary free of charge."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "My husband and I were in total bliss yet again and it's all thanks to Mastro's! The tasty perfect steaks, the lobster mashed potatoes, and the Homemade whipped cream, oh my! I feel super special when we dine there. Mastro's is the best steak house in Chicago!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "My wife & I recently celebrated our anniversary @ Mastros and the experience was excellent!!! I read several reviews which all agreed the food was spectacular & it did not disappoint!!! Some reviewers stated it was far too noisy however I enjoyed the upbeat ambience and live band near the bar which played contemporary music which my wife & I appreciated. Somewhat dim lighting but didn't bother us much. My ribeye & my wife's filet were cooked to perfection! The scallops were excellent & the butter cake was second to none!! Prices were comparable to that of a 5 star restaurant. As a steak connoisseur, Mastros definitely ranks in my top 5. Excellent for entertaining or special occasions."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "There are plenty of OK steak and seafood places in Chicago. If you don't WOW us on the first visit, we won't be back. Needless to say we have returned again to Mastro's as they are always consistent with the whole dining experience. We will return."

  • "Great steaks and other main dishes. The Mambo salad (a spicy Ceasar salad ) was wonderful. Save room for an array of excellent deserts."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I wasn't sure how the fish would be at a steak place-best Chilean sea bass I've ever had."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "With the exception of the darker-than-night lighting, Mastro's is everything a great steakhouse should be~ terrific steaks and delicious vegetable dishes eaten in a posh but relaxed atmosphere. Why the lighting is essentially nonexistent I don't know (and I hope they change that), but the food is wonderful though steakhouse pricey. We were lucky with our fabulous, experienced server who made spot on suggestions. The bone-in filet was scrumptious with a good rub of spices; the onion rings among the best we ever had. Mushrooms were simply but perfectly cooked. Roasted Brussels Sprouts are fantastic. A gargantuan piece of chocolate layer cake was impressive but too sweet; breads were warm and tasty with good butter, including pretzel breads."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "First time visit was outstanding. Best meal we can remember ever having. The noise level was too loud and difficult to visit with our guests. But the quality of the food and service was so good, we didn't mind the noise. Can't wait to go back with special friends or special occasion."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "great life music and service, but the restaurant was very dark and every dish (steak, fish, side dish) had a charcoal layer on top...food was beyond burnt...."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Overall, a great experience... Wonderful food and service. The one slight flaw would be that it's too dark and louder than one would expect of a nice, special occasion kind of restaurant."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "From the time I entered the restaurant to celebrate the birthday of a great friend, I was very impressed and knew I had chosen the correct dining spot. The restaurant featured dimmed lighting and a piano bar where we were able to sit in a corner booth and take in all of the experience. The service was next to none and the food (filet and Alaskan Halibut) were both out of this world. Mastro's rises to the top of my dining list. I would recommend this restaurant to those who are celebrating or those who want an incredible night out on the town."

  • "Wow. What a great experience we had at Mastro's! Though the hostess at the front was not terribly friendly, and there was a large, noisy, obviously inebriated group standing in the lobby, once we sat down at our table, things went from questionable to magnificent. Our waiter, Brian greeted us immediately. He was personable, respectful, friendly, and, best of all, knowledgeable. He covered the specials with us, describing each one with vivid detail. He answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly as well. The food was absolutely delectable--an epicurean delight--and when we ordered the meal, he paired a PERFECT wine with it. His attention to detail was not intrusive, yet we were well cared for. He is a GEM at this restaurant."

  • "Mastros is always our favorite pick when it comes to steak houses- we always leave happy! I knew I had to finally write a review after our last experiences since management handled an unfortunate situation so well. The table next to us had an extremely personal and traumatic situation occur and management went above and beyond to take care of us accordingly for having to be involved. Thank you again, Mastros, we will be back soon!"

  • "The actual restaurant called me the day of to confirm my reservation and to ask me about the notes I wrote, when I had reserved. My boyfriend and I had a 9:30 reservation, we get to the restaurant about 15 minutes early and the restaurant was able to seat us right away. The place is very dark, but luckily our table was right up against the champagne bottle lighted display, that we had good light. You know it is very dark when the Waiters have flashlights. We ordered the chopped salad and they split it in two plates without us even asking. My boyfriend ordered the 33 oz steak, medium, he said it was amazing. One of the sides we ordered was the creamed corn, it was so rich and creamy. I ordered the crap cakes, cooked to perfection."
