    I had the most romantic dinner this past weekend. The server was incredibly attentive and considerate and truly made me and my boyfriend's dinner very special. The food was amazing- the creamed corn is an absolute must. The sides are big so order small. Absolute 5 star restaurant!

    Once again our meal was delicious. Though the steaks/chops are always the main event, the sides are a close runner up for awards. We enjoyed the Lobster Mac - cheese and the Gnochi with crab and truffle oil and the brussel sprouts. All terrific! On this dining event I tried the Veal chop and was very pleased with the char and deep rich flavors. Deserts were excellent as always with the butter cake and my fav the profiterols. The live music is always a plus even though some reviewes complain that it's too noisy..... "then stay home"

    My husband and I made reservations here from a friend's recommendation. We called for reservations 1 week before and our only option was 5:45pm. It was still light outside and when we walked into the restaurant it was so dark I almost wanted to hold the hostess's hand as she led us to our table. Eventually our eyes accustomed to the darkness and we found it romantic. Our waitress, Kelly, was amazing. She helped us with the menu and was very friendly. We were brought a complimentary chocolate cake (huge and very tasty) to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time and will highly recommend to our friends.

    My husband and I are huge fans of Mastros. It only made sense to take our closest friends here for dinner to celebrate his birthday last week because we knew we would have an incredible dinner. We've eaten at many different steak places in town and Mastros seems to always be at the top of our list. Whether you like seafood or steak this is a great place to eat. Service is always excellent and they have a great wine list! And don't forget to order the butter cake for desert!

    The steaks are the best no matter how you well or rare you order them. The side items are great too and I love the seafood (shrimp cocktail). The butter cake is the best and the martinis are great. But what pulls everything together and why I keep going back, is the excellent A+ service. I have never had a bad meal here and service is always the best.

    the restaurant was a referral from a friend over the one we had originally chosen. Glad we switched. The food was great - we shared a filet and a rack of lamb. the wine selection was very well representative for all tastes. the only real complaint was the dim lighting. food is also meant to be seen as is the menu!

    I took my boyfriend to this restaurant for his birthday and I thought this place was not what I expected. The noise was VERY loud, including the t.v's that were playing the game and especially the band. They were singing songs that were nice but too loud!!! I did think the food was outstanding and the waiter was very nice. I order the Chilean Sea Bass and my boyfriend ordered the Chef's steak. I also thought the place was very dark. I'm not sure if we will come back again.

    Wow, truly the best bone-in-filet I've ever had and I can't wait to get back for more. Nothing compares. Excellent service. Besides the filet, I highly recommend having the lobster mashed potatoes and butter cake or you haven't experienced the best of Mastro's!

    I was disappointed that when we arrived for our for reservation, we still has to wait but there was nowhere for us to wait out-of-the-way. We did try to wait in the bar, but there was not any room. It would've been nice to have a server take a drink order for us upon arrival so that we could get a drink while we were waiting for a table. The bar was way too crowded for us to go to get anything to drink. Instead we stood up against a wall. A guest waiting area would be nice. Was also disappointed that I needed to wait 25 minutes to get my car from the valet. These complaints aside, the restaurant was excellent. Very good food. Very generous portion sizes and excellent quality. I will certainly come here again for special occasion. Good band

    We went for a date night dinner and this was not what we were expecting. Very loud and dim lighting; we could barely read menus without using our phones. Meal was average; and for the prices we expected better. Our server was friendly and attentive; but the cons outweigh the pros here; especially with all the great steakhouse options in downtown

    We celebrated our 30 year anniversary this past week and everything was great. The lounge is where we prefer. Yes it's a bit dark but who doesn't know what to order?huh. The servers are excellent with recommendations and matching up a great selection from apps to desert. Sit back and enjoy the live music and your company.

    We had a reservation but we stood for 50 min. waiting for a table. We were seated upstairs only to have a bright Chicago street light shining in our face. We were moved but the light was still there. It was disappointing since we were celebrating our Daughter's 30th birthday. We enjoy fine dining with ambiance. I felt like we were in a room having a meeting no atmosphere. With an 8:15 reservation made in advance several days you should not wait that long when every one else is being seated. We have traveled all over the world so we know ambiance and service. Steaks were not as we expected.

    We were here for a birthday. There was confusion as we waited for a table for 30 minutes despite having a reservation - the reason for me to dock a star. The hosts offered a drink as we waited after 20 minutes but even then the request for a type of wine to the hosts was not paid attention to. That aside, once we were seated it was a wonderful experience. Our server Kelly was in a word "phenomenal". Very knowledgeable about the food and extremely patient. We were there for my wife's birthday with a friend, and the food and service was outstanding. The steak sashimi was wonderfully flavored and the steaks were outstanding. I would definitely recommend the place and would revisit in the future. I'm assuming the table fiasco was a one off

    The food was outstanding as always. The bone in steaks were all cooked to perfection and well marbled. The Mac & Cheese is second to none! Our server on the hand was to busy talking to his colleagues to ask us how our meal was until it was tip time. Maybe we didn't drink enough to warrant his attention. Nonetheless it's still on the top of our list for steakhouses.

    You expect a great steak at a steakhouse and at these prices that's almost what we received. One of the orders had to be returned for being overcooked. But the service was excellent in that he really took care of my needs as a pregnant woman and made sure my requests were adhered to. The salad and mushrooms were fantastic...I'd return for a dinner absolutely as it's one of the best steaks I've had in Chicago.

    Nice restaurant, very loud for a sunday night. This is definately a expense account place, prices on some things were rideculous! Ordered the Heirloom tomato salad in the peak of the season, we did not get Heirloom tomato's on the plate... Food was good, steak done perfectly - but very rich .... Glad we tryed it but will defer to other steak houses when given the option.

    From the seafood tower to the petite filet to the various sides (sautéed spinach, lobster mash potatoes, mushrooms), everything was flavorful and properly prepared. A person could find the same quality of food at a different restaurant for less cost but I don't believe the pricing at Mastro is exorbitant.

    Mastro's is supposed to be a formal dining place with class and ambience. But when we were there last August 31, there was live music provided in the bar which was too loud and this reached all of dining areas, even up to the second floor. This reduced the classiness and formality of the restaurant. Also, lighting was too dark that they gave us flash light to read the menu. I do not think it needs to be this dark.

    Had the best Steak I've ever had in a restaurant (Bone-in Ribeye) and, I've been to many great steakhouses. Great wine selection, appetizers were phenomenal. The staff was polite, prompt, and very friendly and knowledgeable. Only small complaint I have is that it was very dark inside. A lot of candle light and dim lighting. I can't wait for my next windy city trip.

    We had the pleasure of dining here for my boyfriend's birthday and we LOVED it! We had the french onion soup which was very rich in flavor and great texture of cheese and right amount of onions. We had the Mastro's salad and it was just ok. The blue cheese and onions were overpowering and the dressing was creamy which I thought was too thick for the salad overall. However, the Tomahawk steak was absolutely HANDS DOWN grilled to perfection! Savory taste and perfect texture of medium cooked steak. We ordered a side of the Alaskan King Crab gnocchi pasta and its an all time favorite of mine. Our server brought him a slice of chocolate cake which was complimentary...i thought that was a great finishing touch. We enjoyed the live band as well.
