Mastro's Steakhouse - Chicago
Absolutely love eating hereEverything on the menu will absolutely WOW you. The Cesar salad sounds like such a simple item but not at Mastros, it's full of flavor and a definite side as well as the mashed potatoes, yummm. The butter cake is out of this world and the Lemon Drop martinis with dry ice, OMG, scrumptiously good!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steaksMy husband had the bone in filet and I had the petite filet. We both loved our steaks. The sides are large and we ordered too much food. It was our anniversary and they gave us a plate with a huge piece of chocolate cake with fresh whipped cream on the side. It was a memorable meal and we would recommend Mastro's.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and service!Went here for my boyfriends birthday, and we were pleased all around. Appetizers and steaks were superb; however, the sweet potato fries were a little too fried for us! Can't complain about the complimentary butter cake either!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food deafening music!Great food but way too loud! I felt like I had to scream to talk to the other people at the table. They asked us specifically if we wanted to be in the area with live music and we said no so we could visit, but, they were piping in the live music through the speakers upstairs and it was just ridiculously loud. Other than that the food and service was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner with Amazing ServiceI had an amazing experience at Mastro's, even my usually picky parents enjoyed their dinner. The table shared the Porter House steak for two, the Lime Sushi Roll and several sides. The sushi was some of the freshest I have eaten in the city and the steak was done to perfection. Someone had mentioned that it was my graduation dinner and the waiter was kind enough to bring us a piece of their chocolate layer cake., on the house We had wine and beer which was decently priced for a nice restaurant. My only complaint would be that the lounge was very crowded and loud making it hard to order a drink before we were seated. Overall I would definitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but very expensiveNoise level was too much. They had this piano player singer that theoretically was good, but screamed and was so loud we actually had to stop talking because we couldn't hear over her siren of a voice...which was two rooms away from us.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly outstandingThis was my fifth outing to Mastro's. A surprise birthday dinner for my partner, our party thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our server, Bill, was knowledgeable about the menu items and provided some excellent recommendations that we enjoyed very much. The level of service and the quality of the food cannot be paralleled in Chicago.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService and atmosphere wasService and atmosphere was great. Ordered sides of mac and cheese and the corn. It was very dry.
Bread was good.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night outThe waiter was very attentive and had the perfect level of energy and let us also enjoy our night out. The cocktails were tasty and unique, bone marrow appetizer was delightful. We split a chopped salad which was good, but the dressing was very neutral in flavor (lacked a kick). For entree my husband ordered bone-in filet med-raw. It was SO good that I begged no fewer than 3 bites from him. I ordered Big Hawaiian sashimi grade tuna and it was fresh and flavorful. Both dinner portions were generous. Our sides were lobster mashed potatoes (recommended) and brussel sprouts. Both didn't disappoint. My only regret is that we weren't returning directly home and I couldn't have leftovers!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMalways outstanding!I have been here 4 times and it is by far the best steak house in Chicago. You can't go wrong with anything you get here. Simply perfect!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove at First site!!!!!All I can say is I LOVED how I was greeted at the door. I LOVED my 2 waiters....Yes I had 2 waiters, so I didn't need or want for anything..... I LOVE LOVE LOVE my red wine and most importantly I LOVED my food. I would go here once a week if I could :)....4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic steaksOur entire group commented that the food was fantastic - They were the best steaks we've ever had. Great selection of interesting sides. Very good service. We liked the restuarant decor, but it was too dark. We don't mind dim lighting, but this was much too dark. We liked the piano bar music that we could hear in the restaurant. I would give Mastro's an overall rating of 95/100.
We'll definitely be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gluten free choices,Great gluten free choices, extremely accommodating. Stephanie was an absolute gem!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my fiancé there for hisTook my fiancé there for his birthday. The ambiance was great, waitress was outstanding and the food was delicious. It was an expensive night however it was worth it and I will return.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Some of the bestGreat place. Some of the best flavored steaks in the city. Problem is as with other steakhouses very very very loud. I will never understand why some people feel they have to talk at the same level as they would when they are outside during a dinner at a restaurant. People anymore are very selfish and rude. The problem with America in these times...4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding it appears theyoutstanding it appears they took a page from Ruth Chris with the sizzling plate4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in town for a leadershipWe were in town for a leadership retreat and chose Mastro's as our dining for the last night. It was terrific. We all agreed our steaks were the BEST we ever had! The Butter cake - YUM is all we could say!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience I haveBest dining experience I have had in my life! Absolutely wonderful!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHave LOVED going here fromHave LOVED going here from the beginning, have had the rest, this one is still the BEST.
Missed getting the 'thank you' call, hope it was an oversight, for as we all know "Fame is fleeting".4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI had such a great time. MyI had such a great time. My friend and I been planning to have dinner there for months and it was well worth it.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMastros ALWAYS amazing, haveMastros ALWAYS amazing, have been to almost all locations now :)4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience every time!This is my husband and my fourth time dining at Mastro's and we have had nothing but great experiences. The food is always outstanding - we especially like that the steaks come out on a hot plate and the sides come out on the small pan they were cooked in. It keeps everything nice and hot. The cocktails are delicious and their signature butter cake is one of the best desserts we've ever had. The service is outstanding, our wait staff has always been very knowledgeable of the menu. We can't wait to get back there!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak I can remember.The best steak I can remember. I took my friend from Italy who was visiting there. He told me that this was the best steak he ever ate. He said to me, "When I come back into town, you take me here again."4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe held a business dinnerWe held a business dinner at Mastro's with plans to visit a neighborhood bar afterward. The food, the service, the people were so outstandingly good, we stayed at the restaruant bar after dinner to enjoy the live music. Everyone who attended dinner (individuals from Japan, Europe and of course around the US) enjoyed the food and the ambiance.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service wereThe food and the service were great! I really want to stress those as good points. The problem is that we had to wait until between songs to talk to each other, and it was a small table. There are enough tables in that one small room that the noise level is very high to start with, then they blast songs with only a few seconds between the end of one and the start of the next. I don't see why anyone would book a dinner there, either romantic or business, because you could not get a business point across well shouting, and you can't be romantic if not talking. We had to lean over and speak into each other's ears to be heard most of the time.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh end steakhouse, withHigh end steakhouse, with a wide variety of seafood options as well, including some sushi. We had tuna, crab and shrimp to start, then steaks. All were very good. Deserts were very good as well. Only dissapointment were the salads. They were loaded but the dressings were very unimpressive. Very vibrant bar scene with a piano player and singer. Some say it is too loud, but we enjoyed it.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMaestro serviceReservation people need to be more aware of the time. We had to wait 45 minutes past our reservation time. I returned to the front desk on 3 occassions to find out if there was a problem or not, no problem just be a minute. One member of our party had to leave because the excess se had to wait was going to make him lat efor an airplane.
Other people came right in and went to a table or others were not waiting as long. Waitress was excellent, good personality, helpful on the menu items. Food arrived in good order and was at the right temp's. wine list was good .
Other than the wait we experienced when we arrived everything was good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in Chicago for a longWe were in Chicago for a long weekend and Mastro's was a recommendation from some friends. Our friends have been to Mastro's in other locations and said they would be a fabulous choice. They were right! The lobster bisque had huge chunks of lobster. The steaks were prepared perfectly. The cocktails were not only delicious but their presentation was fantastic. Throughout the evening, the service was outstanding. We will definitely make sure to visit a Mastro's any time we are near one. This Chicago experience was fantastic!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful location and veryA wonderful location and very energetic bar scene. The food was excellent and the service exceeded expectations.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenol place, got engagedPhenomenol place, got engaged the night of the dinner, Kim our server was the best.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDarkness StrikesOne thing that i didn't like. It's a little too dark.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Night Hot SpotBesides that they were running behind seating people and we waited an additional 30 mins to sit even though we had a reservation, the food was incredible. The filet was like butter, melted in my mouth. They have a great wine list. Pricey but definitely worth the money for the quality cuts of meat.
The bar is definitely a hot spot and loved the live music. Perfect Saturday night dinner.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had an amazing time at Mastro'sI had an amazing time at Mastro's in chicago. It was jam packed on saturday night with a great live band in the bar. It is defintely not feeling the effects of the economy. My only gripe was there was no where to sit in the bar while we waited 25 minutes for our table. The service was top notch, and the drink I ordered was the fleur de bleu. stolichnaya blueberry vodka, muddled blueberries, and elderflower liquer. DELICIOUS!!!!!! My friends and I ordered the filet mignon which is served on 400 degree plates while seared in clarified butter. We shared the asparagus, green beans, and sweet potato fries which was enough for 6 people! The coffee was the best cup of coffee ive ever had at a restaurant. I will be back!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my birthday, I reallyIt was my birthday, I really enjoyed myself, the food was great, the waitstaff were very nice , we didn't have to wait at all to be seated or for our dinner, and of course they surprised me with a nice piece of cake, it was so moist and fresh. My overall experience was great , I would definitely recommend Mastro's to all of my friends!!!!!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSat at the bar, great musicSat at the bar, great music ans scene.

We started with a seafood tower with excellent, succulent lobster. And wonderful oysters! Our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the side dish of gnocchi was rich and great. Don't forget to order the butter cake for dessert. We always have an excellent meal at Mastro's.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of a few steakhouses IOne of a few steakhouses I visited ony Chicago trip. Food was great porterhouse steals the show. Unbelievably dark!! We needed flashlights to order. Staff knew this because they all had one. Pricey, but not disappointed. Went with a group of 9 . Could see myself going back with wife. I own a resturant and this place was well managed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you travel to Chicago,If you travel to Chicago, do not miss the opportunity to dine at Mastro's.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I came hereMy husband and I came here for date night and really enjoyed ourselves. From the time we walked in the door to the time we seers seated, there was a friendly flow of activity. Mastros understands and demonstrates superb customer service. The next day we even received a phone call thanking us for dining with them! I ordered sea bass which was cooked exactly how I wanted it. My husband enjoyed his steak and the sides were great. The wine list had many selections we love and have wanted to try. We left feeling satisfied and would definitely come back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMastro's is by far my favoriteMastro's is by far my favorite restaurant in Chicago right now.

The service is 5 stars and I am always welcomed by name when I walk in.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are going to spendIf you are going to spend that kind of money, please leave your toddlers at home.
Oh, and two words: Butter Cake3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNo equalWe have been to every steakhouse in Chicago. While Mastro's is not a Chicago original it is by far my favorite. Prices in line with the rest of the high end steakhouses but the service can not be beat and the food is as good as it gets.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth it!It was my best friends birthday and having previously dined there I suggested Mastros. The food, wine, and service was excellent. A bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion. It was a bit loud but we enjoyed the music and even quietly sang along with the
band. One regret was that I did not request main floor seating and ended up at the very back of the restaurant. One more thing, Mastros brought a birthday treat to the table for my friend (per my request made online) and it was enough for the there of us to share. We had a great night!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent!The service was excellent! From the door to the bartender and wait staff. The food made it even better. Thank you3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe StandardI recently relocated to Chicago, I've tried 4 or 5 other steakhouses in the city for convience, BUT they have never lived up to MASTRO'S.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy wife and I had a fantastic night celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary at Mastro's Steakhouse. The steaks were exceptional (definitely on the top end of steak houses i have been to across the country); and we really liked the sizzling platter. We complimented the steaks with sautéed spinach which was fresh, tasteful and not overcooked (rare these days). The service was attentive without being overbearing. I "recreated" the night I asked my wife to marry me and the staff without being prompted brought us champagne, and after learning it was our 20th a celebratory tort for desert - well done! After dinner, we dropped into the bar and enjoyed a fun band with an energetic crowd.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was phenomenal andThe food was phenomenal and the ambiance is great.
