Atmosphere: nice location and view of the coast line

Crowds: they are allowed 442 people by code and it felt as if all 442 sits were occupied. Lots of fancy cars that are occupied by the same

Food: Absolutely wonderful menu. I would place it in the top 3 restaurants in Orange County only because l can not think who # 1 or #2 would be. Great food and drinks

Pricey, but well worth the difference

Give it a chance

An absolute gem!!! We went to the Newport Beach location for our wedding anniversary. They went above and beyond. The food was everything they claim and the service was top notch. Not one negative comment that mention. A plus plus rating. Super happy! Thanks guys for making our anniversary special. We will be back soon. Chris J Fountain Valley

The setting was sophisticated without being snobby. It was welcoming yet elegant. There were diners in casual attire, so no stiffness.
The service was impeccable and friendly. The dinner menu was extensive and accommodating to varied tastes. The food was delicious! Appetizers and side dishes were great and perfect for sharing.
All this luschiouness comes at a price, so be prepared.

We've been to all the Maestro's in Los Angeles, even the one in Thousand Oaks. Maestro's - Newport Beach was a disappointing experience. Arrived on time and seated 30 mins late. Ordered steaks medium rare, both steaks came out well done and my wife's plate burned the linen underneath and oil splashed her on the chest. The salt and vinegar french fries were stringy and did not taste like vinegar. We sent our food back to have made new, tool 35 minutes for it to come back. Waiter tried his best but management and kitchen failed. Spoke to the manager who said they would comp our meal in half and offer free dessert. They compensated for $46 of the $200 meal and never followed up. Would not come back and would not recommend.

The emphasis here is on “more” but not necessarily on “better”. My wife’s sea bass was big but dried out. My lamb chops were good but too much and our side of salt and vinegar fries was huge but had very little salt and the vinegar was absent. “Fries”was a misnomer as they were shoestring potatoes!! Our waiter was pleasant and when she asked about the meals we said the sea bass was dried out—-they comp’d the dessert!! Looks like the attraction here is to be seen and an over the top—as in price—Place. There are options for better food in the greater Newport area.

I ordered the filet. Had grizzle and was not a “prime” piece of meat. I don’t object to price, but this level of quality was disappointing. Also the shrimp entre priced at $109 was very excessive price wise...albeit good quality.
Server was very attentive and was the best part of the experience.

Very noisy, very crowded (tables too close together), over-priced, mediocre food, ridiculous markup on wine list (I own a better vintage of a wine that I paid $350 for that they had listed for $2,500). Very forgettable and unfortunately disappointing birthday dinner for my wife. I recommend trying somewhere else. Anywhere else.

Fernando was a great server.

Always a great dinner at Mastros. We love their martinis to start with, plus always a good wine pour. The Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Salad is a favorite. The Seabass blackened was good last night but also a little fishy tasting. I’ve had it here better. My Halibut blackened needed to be returned as it was undercooked. They returned it to me and it was delicious. The Butter Cake is always a must! They also gave us a piece of their chocolate cake to make up for the fish preparation issue. The cake was moist and delicious.

Very very disappointing.
Had to send the wagu back 3 times .
For a $150 steak it’s unacceptable.
I eat here twice a week and possibly the worst and most embarrassing experience in taking out of town guests.

Service was not good. The bus boys and runners were attentive but our waiter wasn’t around much. The wait time between appetizer and entree was ridiculous. Steak was not prepared to the correct temp, and they are a steakhouse! None of the food tasted particularly good except for the calamari. Waiter was not attentive, and didn’t even provide us menus for a long time. I’ve been to this location several times in the past. Not sure if they changed management, but this place is terrible and has no value now. Especially when a $70 steak isn’t even prepared correctly. Both terrible service and food.
