Maestros Ocean Club is situated right in the water and offers terrific views. The food is good, the steaks and lamb chops are worth ordering. The seafood tower can be "made to order" so that you get your choices is seafood. Thw butter cake with vanilla ice cream is thier signature dessert.
Sat outside. Beautiful view. Staff is top-notch! Very good meal😊
Have to say was disappointed when we ordered accompaniments to our steaks and was told the “extra” was scallops and the $45 filet came with 1 - yes one tiny scallop for $20. And the second filet was topped with a crab cake for $30 and was smaller than the steak. A little extreme. We could have paid for nearly 2 more meals! Unfortunately won’t be back.
We dined at Mastro’s for our anniversary on Thursday night at 6pm while were in town
for a few days. The restaurant was empty and we were sat outside at a table for two that barely fit us. It wasn’t a great view and definitely could have been better since there was plenty of seating. Our server was super nice and friendly-top notch! My salad was soaked in dressing and my filet was soaked in oil (which I found out was clarified butter and spices). Gross! He was kind enough to take it away and not charge us for it. They tried to sit a party of 2 right next to us as we were half way through dinner even though there were so many tables available. The people asked to go somewhere else before we needed to say something. As we received our dessert, they then sat another couple right out on the other side of us-still with almost every other outside table available. I couldn’t believe it! The tables were really close together and it wouldn’t have been an issue if it was packed! Overall, I was not impressed and I left the restaurant hungry :(
Gracious staff at every turn! The table was perfectly positioned to experience the waterfront views. The waiter was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Delicious food options, The mussels and lobster were cooked to perfection! The chocolate cake with freshly whipped cream was a decadently delicious treat at the end.
omg. what a fabulous place. just gorgeous. food amazing and good for all occasions. table 601/501 and 607 perfect !!! must
I was surprised that the place wasn't more crowded. This is the second time I was there in the last 20 days and I experienced the same at both dinners. Last season (Dec '18-April '19), we ate at Mastro's at least 2 times per month and it was always crowded. I'm wondering if something has changed and the crowd is turned away.
The food and service was great!
Excellent experience once again. The 40 ounce tomahawk is outstanding as is the sauteed shrimp. Best key lime pie in fort Lauderdale hands down. Will continue going back
We were out celebrating our 20th Anniversary and noted it when I booked the reservation. The staff had treated us with great care and we received terrific service and attention attention. Food was outstanding as usual and being it was a Tuesday night the noise level was very moderate and unlike the weekend. This is a great place to celebrate special occasions for sure.
Great staff great food great waterfront
perfekt, nice service
Celebrated my birthday and the steak was excellent again!
There isn’t a bad seat outside. I usually eat here a few times a month and am never disappointed. The wait staff is always so very attentive. I have had wonderful drink recommendations. Honestly, I would probably come here just for the pretzel bread in the bread basket!!! My steak is always cooked to perfection. Presentation seems to be a source of pride here and is usually totally picture perfect and Instagram ready! Make sure you try the sides! They elevate cream corn in an amazing way! I always save room for the warm butter cake. It is outstanding!!!
I have always felt that Maistro's steaks are the most flavorful compared to even the finest aged prime steakhouses. Not sure what they do but they truly stand out. I have eaten a the one in Chicago three or four times and the one in Fort Lauderald about a half a dozen now.
Had a reservation and waited 45 minutes to be seated when inside was empty. Waiter extremely slow and food way too salty.
Had a great Dinner , I love Mastro's already in LA is a fantastic steak house , in Fort Lauderdale the Ocean Club is also Sea food and I love it , the Noice level was just very high they had a large Party (all Guys and Drunk) who did not had any concerns for other guest was disturbing ( the Manger should have bring this down but I guess Money was more important ) beside that it was absolutely fantastic !
Great atmosphere and the food and the service outstanding!
Very poor service, especially by hostess at the front of the restaurant
Server forgot my drink when I asked twice. My take home items were missing
The food was good and the service started out good, but was lacking at the end. Server took over 30 minutes from the time we finished our meal before he stopped by our table. We were planning to order more drinks and dessert, but after that long wait, we decided to go elsewhere. I respect that it was New Years Eve and it was only 2 people (not part of the bigger party that was there), but it's definitely far from the level of service we're use to at the Scottsdale and Las Vegas locations. We wouldn't recommend this place.
Waiters try to over sell. We were sat and didn’t get water or our drink order taken for 45 min. Never again.
Great location. Hostess a little surly. Waiter very attentive.
The food was very good but service was very slow in terms of waiting for the food. Seems like a kitchen issue versus a wait staff issue.
Biggest issue was that 3 of our 4 had the wedge salad and 3 of that 3 had big stomach issues within a few hours of eating. So not a good end to the night. Suggest you think seriously about how to have that not happen again.
Fifi our waitress was superb. The food was as delicious as always. Didn’t love our table I requested outside, it wasn’t crowded but they still put us right next to the bar so the view was of underneath the bar. Don’t miss the maestros potato’s and corn and for sure the butter cake!!
Amazing amazing service! They accommodated my huge family perfectly without even us asking. Our waiter Fei Fei was great and made the best recommendations!
Beautiful location... sat outside and it was lovely. Our order got messed up. ( they forgot our salad and served our entree first) but the manager send back our order and comped our salad. (Very kind). Food was delicious although when my lobster came out it was overcooked. Not sure if it was just being heated while they straightened out the salad. In any case the manager Brian gave us a complimentary dessert platter which was awesome! Drinks were very expensive more than Manhattan prices.. would still go back nice atmosphere and delicious food.. service is very slow. Be prepared for dinner to take a while. Relax and enjoy the view
In general, this is a very good place to eat for a special occasion. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The main reasons I didn't give it 5 stars are:
The table where we were seated was on the edge of the dining room under a blue light. The light on the table provided little additional light. As a result, the menu was hard to read. I had to use my phone.
I was disappointed in the lobster macaroni and cheese. The macaroni and cheese was fair, at best. I found the lobster somewhat rubbery. I much prefer the lobster mashed potatoes that I had at the Mastro's in California.
Aside from the valet and hostess, the service was terrible.
The Wagyu Tomahawk, Mac and cheese along with escargot were all delicious.
The service however, ranks below that of a hot dog stand.
1. Took a long time for table service to initiate.
2. They never came by within 20 whole min to ask how our appetizers were or if we needed another drink/beverage.
3. Finally the bus boy stopped by to clear and I asked for a manager.
4. You would think things got better but they only got worse.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to further elaborate but servers and managers need an intensive course on service. It’s too bad cause the food is pretty good.
I’ll stick with Steak 954 at the W for now and maybe revisit them in a few months when they hopefully tighten up.
Best wishes and Happy New Year.
The food was excellent once we received it. The service was awful. We waited forever for our server to bring drinks ,even water ,and to take our order. Never checked on us to see if we needed anything, forgot our oysters rockefeller. I would have loved it if the service wasn’t so terrible:( very disappointing!!
No doubt the food is great ! Service is terrible and the worst part is the manager didn’t care . 3 hours one app dinner and desert a few drinks $600 dollars no problem if the service was better .
We had to go to the bar and order our own drinks!
Food and service were great. Prices are expensive. Dining area is very dark. Hard to read menus
The ambience and food were excellent and the service is 5 star.
Went for dinner Christmas Day
What a chaos! We waited to be seated for 40 min after our reservation time
Long wait even with a¡ reservation , after we were seated we waited for food for 1 hr. Beautiful place .
Only way to improve would be to lower the sound level of music played.
Maybe a few less tables to lower the distraction of people constantly walking by.
Although I recommend and will return these suggestions would take it to an elite level.
The food is always great, only this time I asked for medium-well on my bone in filet it was a little undercooked; more red than pink. The staff and ambience are always excellent, just like the warm butter cake.
Service and food / AMAZING. Ambiance was excellent. We went on Christmas Eve about 2:30 in the afternoon. This is fine dining in South Florida and I definitely recommend
Great meal, great service and beautiful view on the patio!
