Sunday Night Special
The Sunday Night Special is both a bargain and a delight. Our very wealthy former US Senator was dining there at the same time and he could afford to eat anywhere! The Lemoncello Chicken was sauced at a "lick the plate" level of goodness. We will be back.

I love Open Table!
We could not have had a more memorable and thoroughly enjoyable experience than we did at Mason Street Grill in Milwaukee, WI. I mentioned in my on-line reservation that it was our 25th wedding anniversary. We were treated like royalty from the moment we were escorted to our table. There was champagne waiting for us, all of our meals were simply fabulous, and we were even treated to dessert and coffee. Our waiter, Danny, was SO wonderful and attentive. My husband and I both said we have never had better service at a restaurant. We would HIGHLY recommend Mason Street Grill to anyone we hear is coming to Milwaukee. Thank you, Open Table, for being such a great site for reservations. I LOVE USING YOUR SERVICE!

Food and service were excellent. A Little pricey but you get what you pay for. Bar was great for a pre dinner drink. Live music was great.

I surprised my husband with
I surprised my husband with dinner here for our anniversary & it was wonderful! Had a booth reserved, which was more private; but a little noisy. Food was excellent & service great. The waiter surprised us with a beautifully-presented dessert, with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate. A very special evening!

I've been here many times before. Twice for dinning and twice for special occasion all of which we had great service and the food was very good. Mason St. Is more fine dinning and the portions if the food represent that.

Our family was celebrating
Our family was celebrating a birthday for our son who is turning 10 years old. Even the server knew the information we had put down on our reservation understood it was his birthday.
Great chain of communication throughout the operation

Wonderful place to celebrate a special event or just a quiet night out for dinner. The food is outstanding and the service is great.

Nice first Night Out
Our first meal in Milwaukee ... excellent all around ... superb onion rings ( ... though the batter slipped from the onions on some) ... bone-in NY steak excellent ... wife's veal was also perfect ... nice atmosphere ... nice buzz
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter made excellent suggestions and was extremely friendly! Aged steak and sea bass were flavorful.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our visit was to celebrate a birthday and visit by our two adult children. We expected the food would be good, but it was even better than we hoped. Our daughter said her petite filet was the tenderest and tastiest she had ever had. Same with the veal tenderloin and filet medallions. The sides of spinach and asparagus were cooked just right to bring out the flavor of each, and we all enjoyed the house's chopped salad. The wines were also excellent, especially a complex but wonderfully smooth pinot noir. Not a cheap night of dining, but perfect as a special occasion and opportunity for a fine meal.

Great food downtown
A nice menu executed by a very caring staff. The manager was mindful of my food allergy and did everything possible to make sure we had a wonderful anniversary dinner! We had a lovely dinner!

Night with the Girls
We were extremely pleased with the service we received from entering to leaving, especially with our server. Wonderful evening!

Delicious Food, Service Fair
We have dined here before and have always loved it. The food is always excellent but this time the service was mediocre. The server was not very friendly after initial hellos were made, very little of a smile, not engaging to our party of 6. She was not very efficient as the meal went on. 2 of the steaks were not correctly done but the people did not want to return them and have the other 4 wait to eat. But they did give us a platter of dessert samples of cake for our combined birthday celebration on a plate with Birthday congrats written in chocolate, which was a nice touch.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Food, Wine and Service
The sea bass has become one of my all time favorite dishes to order. And. you must order the chef's salad, crab cakes, and seared ahi; otherwise, you will be missing out on wonderful dishes!

Blend of great food and service
Mason street grill matches its outstanding food and wine with friendly, excellent service. They make delivering an excelen dining experience look easy.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit extra
The Mason Street Grill has been a long time favourite for lunch so I tried it for supper last week. Outstanding Pepper Steak coupled with a fine wine by the glass made for a good evening. The service was outstanding as well but non-intrusive. What seemed extra to me was the quiet attention paid to each guest over and above most places I frequent. Kudos to the managerial staff for going that little bit extra to welcome a guest.

Outstanding food, Average Service
We selected Mason Steeet Grill for a family dinner of 8 people (ages 12 to 92). Three family members were visiting fromTenneessee foe the Packer game. We celebrated 2 birthdays. Our reservation was initiaaly set for 8:30 but I called to move it up to 7:30. The hostess cheerfully made the change. For a Sunday night, it was busy but there were a few open tables. It took a long time to receive our drink order and even longer for the bread to show up. The Packer crew was hungry and was agitated that it took over 30 minutes for the bread to arrive. Our Tenneessee crew was staying at the airport, we live in Racine and the 92 year young Mother resides at The Catholic Home and we needed things to move along. Fabulous food, slow service.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time for myself and the wife, we will be back.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress, Lisa, was very knowledgeable about both food & wine menus. Would recommend chopped salad. Short ribs were tender & tasty.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was dining solo at a meeting site. Enjoyed the bustle of the kitchen having worked in food service during college. Excellent bone in rib steak. Limited Char, very juicy, well seasoned. Very good temp for medium rare as requested.

Fantastic once again
Once again, Mason Street Grill provided an amazing dinner. Our service was excellent, and made us feel very special as we were there for a special celebration. Our waitress always checked up on us and made us feel like we were important guests of hers. The food was up to the same high standard as it always is. If there is one critique of our time it is for the "add-ons" we received for our occasion. They provided us with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and a dessert due to the event. However, when the bill came at the end, some of these items were charged to us. We were a bit taken back by the charge considering that they brought them to us without us asking. It is not a big deal and would not deter us from going back.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of six had a wonderful dining experience. The food was delicious and our server top notch. The steak au poive was especially tasty. We will definitely be back.

Excellent but pricey
Everything was very good, if not outstanding...however, I had the garlic herb butter and too much was on the steak, very good tasting, but too much. The downside is that the menu is ala carte which turned out to be very expensive. The price for a steak is just that...the steak only. Tack on an additional $8-10 for just soup or salad, plus another extra charge for sides of vegetables. Loved the atmosphere and service though.

Mason Street Grill
We enjoyed a great dinner with out of town guests from China. It was a special evening -- the staff treated us as if we were the only diners in the room. The lobster boil was amazing!

My wife and I were visiting Milwaukee for our wedding anniversary. I had made reservations at the Mason Street grill using open table. This was our first time at this restaurant. I had requested a booth and it was ready for us on time for our reservation.
We mentioned to our server that it was our anniversary, and we were surprised with a complementary glass of champagne and a dessert. We ordered filets and they were excellent, some of the best we have ever had. The service was outstanding as well. Definitely would recommend this restaurant and we will be sure to come back the next time we are in Milwaukee.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good choice
I am never disappointed here. Wonderful ambiance, quiet enough for a conversation w/o being dull. Food was very good and our server was excellent.

Great Milwaukee steak house
We were especially impressed when our server, Alex, explained how they prepare gluten-free items. Our granddaughter has celiac disease and we wondered if she would be able to enjoy a nice meal. This restaurant has done its homework on dealing with this food restriction; we were very impressed! They prepared an excellent meal of steak, baked potato and sugar snap peas for her that were wonderful. The rest of us had great meals too! My only disappointment was the delay in getting my $45 steak served. It came 20 minutes after everyone else had their meals served. By then, I had lost my appetite and did not finish the steak. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful evening. While pricey, it was worth the visit and we recommend you consider dining here.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner venue
The restaurant has a wide variety of food options and everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The staff was super friendly, which helped make for a fun dinner. I highly recommend Mason Street Grill.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
STEAK BE GOOD
everything was perfect. There really isn't anything I would change about my experience. The only knit pick thing i would have to say is instead of a side trio maybe a duo since most people will come in groups of 2 or 4.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Outstanding Service
I have often visited for wine and appetizers, but never tried the restaurant. Fantastic!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was of high quality, prepared perfectly, and the service excellent. Will dine here again soon
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I typically stay away from hotel restaurants, but The Mason Street Grill, located in the Pfister Hotel, is following a trend of hotel restaurants that are destinations rather than necessities. Great American cuisine, warm ambiance, first rate service. I do miss their Seven Layer Salad, but they're replace it with great options. Their Surf Clams and flat breads are a must, wonderful steaks for the carnivore in you. Great wine list and good people to help you negotiate through it. There is private dining areas available as well as a Chef's table near the bar.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mason Street Grill is one of our favorite restaurants. Steaks are great! Service is spot on....

Great meal and service! Never
Great meal and service! Never have been disappointed at mason street grill!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had an excellent dinner here. The food was perfect, albeit expensive, and the service was perfect.
The only down side was the valet parking. There was only one valet and many people who had to leave at the same time to get to the theater. If we hadn't hopped in another car, we would have been late.
We came back after the show ended (to get our car) and decided to stay for the live music in the bar. That ended by 11:00 although the sign just outside claimed live music 6:00-12:00 (we left at 7:00 and they hadn't started yet).
That being said, we would still recommend Mason Street Grill.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our waiter was great. He offered to pick our food and he would do it within the price range we gave him. He did a great job and the limit I gave him he came below it. We also had a time limit. Loved the place.

Great birthday lunch
I've been to Mason Street Grill numerous times, but this was the first visit for my clients, and they loved it. The New England Clam Chowder was perfect for an autumn day, and the crab cake entree was delicious, too. We were there to celebrate my client's birthday, so I put a note in the reservation I made through Open Table. At the end of our meal, our server brought out a chocolate mousse dessert with "Happy Birthday" on the plate - it was a perfect surprise and a fantastic end to the celebration.

Great Atmoshere and Great Food
This was my first time to the Mason Street Grill. It was a business dinner. The staff was great, gave us good suggestions like sharing side dished. Steaks were phenomenal!

Couples Night Out
We went out with another couple at their recommendation and were wonderfully surprised. Our server was polite, knowledgeable, and on task for the night. The menu had great selections for all different tastes. The food came promptly and was exquisite. I would definitely recommend this and dine here again - we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tends to be one of my go to restaurants for entertaining visitors. Service as always is good, attentive enough, but not too close. Food is always great, except this time, the sea bass was not cooked as well as they normally do, but was still enjoyable. The server recommended a cocktail for me that was just spot-on.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our Server David, really did a nice job and made our anniversary very special. Thanks to the Chef for a delicious meal and thanks to the pastry chef for the special desert, very well done!!!

Kid Friendly and open on Holidays
Of the restaurants open on Thanksgiving this is our current choice. It would be nice if they would mix it up and not just pull out the same menus each holiday, but if that's what they need to ensure consistent execution I'll endure a bit of culinary boredom in exchange for a pleasant family meal. Service is average for this price point- nice staff but don't seem expertly trained.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Family gathered in Milwaukee this year for Thanksgiving. Mason Street Grill went above and beyond to accommodate a fluctuating guest list, finally putting us into their small banquet room and serving up an excellent fixed menu meal for Thanksgiving. David, our server, did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome and the kitchen topped it with their food preparation. It was a warm and wonderful family gathering and I will make a point of returning to dine again when I'm next in the area.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
convenient location exceeds expecta
I chose Mason on its location to where I was staying...the Pfister...turned out to be quite a gem...pleasant atmosphere...good food...excellent service with a smile!!!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had an unlimited gift certificate from a previous function at a sister hotel of the Pfister and decided to try Mason Street Grill based on other reviews. Since I wasn't paying for the meal, I splurged on the 12 oz bone in filet mignon. Now I eat out for business a lot and dine at the chains (Ruth Chris, Morton's, McCormick & Schmick, etc) on a regular basis with customers. This bone in filet was hands down the best steak I've had in the last two years. Perfectly cooked, amazing flavor, great texture! The butternut squash soup was creamy and delicious. The root hash and Delmonico potato sides were excellent as well. Noise level was a little high but it was theater night so it was to be expected. Service was great.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Mason Street Grill is a staple in Milwaukee and you can always count on a good meal. The bar ambience is fantastic. The service was fantastic as well.
I would also say if you are dining alone this is a great restaurant. There is a sit down marble "bar" in front of the kitchen where a single diner can watch the action in the kitchen or comfortably sit and read a tablet. It is much more comfortable than dining alone at a table in the dining room.

Great Find in Downtown
Was looking for a restaurant to grab a quick bite close to my hotel and found the Mason Street Grill. The service was exceptional and the wine list was great, including some nice wines available by the glass.
