    Celebrated birthday and Father's day yesterday and Rogelio was excellent. We love the idea of welcoming guests with a mini wine glass of Rose', food is great but can be too loud during busy hours and you start feeling suffocated because the tables are too close to each other.

    Las Brisas is remarkable! Did you know that at Brunch, if you prefer to order off of the menu, you can sit in the cozy booth in the bar, see the ocean and get just what you want! Staff went way out of their way to give us an unforgettable experience. Graçias!

    As always, a nice visit for an afternoon. I was able to be seated an hour early to my reservation as I’m getting over a virus and was feeling weak. Many thanks for accommodating me. It’s so, so busy there but a table opened up with 5 minutes and they gave it to me. Granted it was during the week and not near a holiday but I appreciate their effort.

    It was my husband’s birthday and our server Nicola made him feel special from the moment we sat down. The personalized “Happy Birthday Bob” menu was a sweet surprise! We ordered Caviar, Lobster Bisque, Petite Filet, Italian Chophouse Salad (minus the salami) and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Everything was outstanding, however we did not care for the Brussels Sprouts, and Nicola voluntarily took them off of our bill. My husband’s favorite dessert is Keylime pie. Few places carry it, so it was the icing on the cake for him when he asked, and YES they have it! We took it to go. They added a big scoop of vanilla ice cream ( his second favorite dessert!) So, did we have a good experience at Mastro’s? NO! We had an amazing experience! Our entire evening at Mastro’s, from start to finish, was delightful! We plan on coming back soon!

    Great setting and the food is good. It’s not a place to go for 5+ star food and service; but it’s good overall. The setting is in the sand looking out at the ocean and that’s the experience you’ll get. The view and the dolphin sitings make it all worth while. The staff is super friendly and create nice vibes. A happy place for breakfast.
