    Too dark, if waiters have to use flashlight to help diners read menu.......turn up the light. Steak a bit over cooked, sugar snap peas a bit under cooked. French onion soup excellent. Service exceptional.

    If there's one thing I can't stand when going to a nice restaurant such as Mastro's (and others), it's that they won't seat you until your entire party has arrived. So when I make a reservation, I expect to be able to be seated as soon as I get there because I RESERVED A TABLE. If someone reserves a table, then there shouldn't be anyone else using it at the time of reservation. So we had a party of 7, and 3 of them were stuck in traffic trying to get there, the rest of us have to awkwardly stand in the entrance area with the music BLARING until they arrive. What is the point of making a reservation if you can't sit at your table when most of your party is there, and the table is empty? Really stupid rule that needs to be 86ed ASAP.

    I have been to Mastro's well over ten times and have never had a bad meal. In fact have always had a fantastic meal. I continue to bring out of town client to Mastro's and every client has loved the restaurant and gone back on their own when they are again in Chicago. The service is top notch. The steaks are the best. I rent private rooms often for client dinners. Mastro's has some of the best private rooms in all of Chicago. The catering manager and staff are great to work with.

    I've been to Mastro's on several occasions and every time it has been a stelar experience. Last saturday night was a disappointment.. It was also my boyfriend's father's birthday and I recommended Mastro's as the perfect place to go. As it was his first time in Chicago and he wanted to go to a steakhouse. As we sat down at our table, we were forgotten. Nobody asked if this was a special occasion, it took more than half hour for the bread basket to arrive. We kept searching for our server. The steak was also not as good as I have had it before. Severely under seasoned and slightly overcooked from the medium rare I wanted. I felt bad about suggesting Mastro's for his birthday celebration.

    I have been to Mastro's several times and always had a very good time, service and quality are normally what you would expect from such a pricey spot, however, I was very surprised to see how unaccommodating the front desk staff was when I arrived early on my dinner reservation, I requested to be ushered to my table as I wanted to have a Martini AT MY TABLE and not the bar while I was waiting on my dinner appointment guest. granted, it was a Tuesday afternoon, the restaurant was NOT full and I was exactly 30 minutes prior to my reservation, not an hour. I was given a categorical *no* and despite of my obvious discontent, they made no attempts to accommodate, I waited standing there until my guest arrived. bad customer service!

    I took my best friend to Mastro's for her birthday and she loved it. The staff was professional but not overly friendly which was fine by us. My steak was just okay but she absolutely loved the pork chop and the lobster bisque was delicious as well. Our server presented her with a very ample slice of chocolate cake with homemade whipped cream and I'm glad she shared. It was very good. We wanted to try their butter cake but neither of us had room for another morsel. The martini list was not disappointing either...the drinks were awesome. A bit pricey for everyday but worth the splurge for a special occasion.

    Being a vegetarian with family and friends who are mostly carnivores can be a problem when choosing a restaurant. Although Mastro's does not offer one vegetarian entree on the menu, it is one of my favorite restaurants and definitely a favorite of my steak and seafood lover friends. I am obsessed with the salads and vegetable sides. Adding a vegetarian entree would be a nice addition, it could possibly lower my caloric when dining there. Their wine list and knowledge is fabulous and very much appreciated. Speaking of Calories - Do not think about them!! Their Butter Cake is truly something that needs to be on everyone's "bucket list" words can not do it justice! If you are a key lime pie lover, I am told theirs is the best.

    Where to even begin! From the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly, and sat within 5 minutes. We were at upstairs, first ones! We had the upstairs to ourselves for about 10 minutes, which was really nice. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, and took away any anxiety I had about ordering wine from their large wine menu, and impressive dinner menu. We both ordered a bone in filet, mine md.rare,and his med. The steak was juicy, tender, and BURSTING with flavor. Best. Steak. EVER. they even brought an anniversary cake at the end, which was also amazing. Generous portions, and delicious dishes. Service was incredible, and everyone seemed to have a passion for the restaurant, it was refreshing and impressive. Will definitely be back!

    It's about the Bone-in Filet and flourless chocolate pudding cake...the high top tables in the bar area provide the perfect balance of intimacy and connection with the scene if you like partake in the energy of the place. The dining room is mandatory for more privacy and quiet conversation.

    Mastro's brought its A-game during a memorable birthday celebration dinner on Friday (10/17). From A to Z, the steaks, the seafood tower, the sides, the wine list, the service, the vibe, the entertainment at the bar, and, of course, the famous butter cake were impeccable. I have had the privilege of dining at Mastro's for business and pleasure many times, and I have yet to encounter anything other than an outstanding dining experience there. And as a life-long Chicagoan, I know how competitive and difficult it is to sustain a winning, high-end steak house here. Mastro's deserves not only to be in the conversation when it comes to the best steak house in town, it is at the top of the list. For stellar dining, you can count on Masto's.

    Just not sure why the steak is 46$? We were over charged, figured it was probably for a glass of over priced wine at $18 a glass....but I should have checked the bill. I think I was in a daze from my shock at the $217 bill for two people and one glass of wine. With all of the great steak houses in Chicago.... We won't go back

    When celebrating at a nice place such as Mastro's we would have expected top notch service. Not the case. We were extremely disappointed with the service, took a long time to get waited on, the waiter continued to be EXTREMELY SLOW and had to ask for simple items such as water and bread. I DO NOT RECOMMEND it as Chicago has plenty of other great steakhouses where you can celebrate. Food was good, but not great.

    I have eaten at many Chicago steakhouses and this ranks close to the top. The filet I had was very tender and cooked to order. It was seasoned only lightly. My husband's Kansas City cut was delicious and more flavorful/seasoned than my filet. The very cool thing is that your meat is delivered to your table on a plate which is heated to 450 degrees which keeps it nice and hot when you eat it although it cooks it slightly more so you may want to order your meat slightly rarer. My friend ordered the chilean sea bass and was not impressed saying it was prepared way too buttery. The sides and salads we ordered were perfect and I highly recommend saving room for dessert-the butter cake (shared 4 ways in perfect). Our waiter was superb.

    The food was good, but not great, especially for the price. The wine was very good and the glass was quite large. Hot ice under the shrimp cocktail made a very nice presentation. The best part was the unending martini. It seemed like the waiter kept pouring from the shaker into a large martini glass. Loud downstairs, not as bad up. Live music was nice in the bar area. Seems like a young scene kind of place. They called the next day to thank us for coming. Nice touch.

    Most over-priced food I have ever eaten. Chilean Sea Bass was blandly grilled and served on an over-sized plate, nothing more... Tuna on the other hand was drenched in an Asian sauce that destroyed the flavor of the fish. $250 dollars later, my dinner for 2 would have been better spent at McDonalds!

    I ususally LOVE LOVE LOVE Mastros, it's one of my favorite steakhouses in Chicago. However, during our recent visit, one of my friends steaks was cooked well-done when she asked for medium and my other friends steak had fat all over it. The way in which it was handled was also awkward as the server and manager came over to inspect the steaks with a flashlight (almost as if my friends were lying). As one of my favorite spots, I was very disappointed with our dining experience.
