Took our family here previously and had a good meal. Made reservations in advance also noting the special occasion for my anniversary Friday the 16th. Arrived on time or a few minutes prior. Greeted by staff and given the worst possible table in the house!!. Shoved in the corner adjacent to the runway of other guests, waitress's, servers etc... Absolutely ridiculous when we noticed so many other tables empty. Talked to the waitress and asked to be relocated. They quickly denied for no good reason at all. Told them this is where you seat guests with advanced reservations celebrating a special occasion?

After nearly 2 hours when my wife and I we're ready to leave with check in hand the manager decided to come over and say " I heard you were slightly unhappy with your evening" What a joke!!! The most unprofessional, dry approach I have ever witnessed.. Made absolutely ZERO effort to soften our frustration. I would never recommend this establishment to anyone. They are clearly focused on the amount cash brought in, most certainly not the experience of the customer....

Service was not good. My husband didn't get his cocktail when he ordered it. They finally brought his cocktail and never asked to refill my empty wine glass. Food was ok. Feels like a factory. Get them in and get them out. Very sad.

Mastro’s never disappoints. Have been going to the Ocean Club for years and it is one of my favorite restaurants AND the best of the Mastro’s for me. I love sitting in the bar. It was my son’s birthday the other night. We had reservations, were seated earlier than expected in the bar and enjoyed our evening with Carley our server. The food is always excellent. Thank you for another memorable evening!

We had the unfortunate experience of dining at your Ocean Club in Newport Beach last Wednesday evening. While we had been looking forward to this dinner for some time, the presence of the most obnoxiously loud table behind us completely ruined the dinner experience. After several unsuccessful requests to staff to have the situation addressed, I was left to address the large table myself. Two other tables around us thanked me for the effort, but unfortunately within several minutes, the situation had returned to previously unacceptable levels. While I have nothing against a group having a great time when they are out, I believe it is the responsibility of management and staff to ensure that all patrons are able to enjoy themselves. In this case, staff and management fell well short of expectations.

Mastro's has always been a favorite destination for myself. This was the first time I was able to experience their Ocean Club off PCH. The experience was absolutely divine, and I cannot thank the staff enough at Mastro's for making each occasion special. Whether I am there for a celebration, or even a last minute dinner they have always treated myself with care, compassion and enthusiasm. Truly feels like a family owned business.

we had 6 ppl in our party. Ordered main dishes and my cousin and her 7 year old daughter each ordered Sprite. Her daughter was saving her drink by sipping it little by little and when the bus boy came to refill our glasses with water, he actually poured a lot of water into her Sprite glass. He imediately apologized and brought another bottle of Sprite to fill it in a new glass. I didn’t go thru my receipt at the reataurant because it was so dark that I couldn’t see it well so trusted them. but when I came home to go over the receipt, I realized they had charged us the Sprite that he brought to replace the one he accidently pour watee i to. So got charged for 3 Sprites instead of 2! I called the restaurant to ask for a refund and the host told me all the supervisors were busy and that one of the supervisor will get back to me but it’s been 2 days and jo one has reached out to me yet. A bottle of soda doesn’t cost much but it’s the principle and I am really disappointed at this reataurant.

The Mastro's experience excelled our expectations even with our bias perception of how amazing it was going to be. When you are expecting a restaurant experience to be above standard, you are only setting yourself up for approval dismay. Our experience was exquisite in every category and we are pleased to say that we will in fact be returning very soon. We have worked in the restaurant industry for many years in our past as servers and management figures enough to have obtained quite the particular palate. We expect consistency in flavor profiles as well as five star dinner service. Dinner service should be approached by all faculty with selective selling and nightly feature presentations. Whether it be recommending specific wine or appetizers, or even as simple as personal favorite items that are offered in the menu. When you are handed a menu, essentially you are given a map to a possibly extraordinary event. It is up to your server to enhance that aspect of your journey. Unfortunately, we weren't taken down that road of recommendations, but our server was vastly personable nontheless. Ancillary staff, such as the back waiters and food runners, were greatly poised. A service training program amongst all front of the house members would be greatly useful in consistencies that would benefit not only sales, but general attitude when approaching dinner guests. A smile goes a long way and we unfortunately saw less teeth from back waiters and food runners than a Stephen King horror novel. The sound from the live entertainment was at a much appreciated acceptable decibel. The food was outstanding, but the real test is how will it hold up for future visits. The trend is still to be determined in that category. In conclusion, we loved the ambiance and were very pleased with our experience.

Disaster night with mael being sadly negatively affected by server knocking over wine glass onto steak and lobster and in my daughters lap. Manager did all the right things to recover the mishap, but of course meal could not be replaced in time and our annual reunion with my daughter was unfortunately not as flawless as id hoped. The four top we were seated at was just too tightly fit into the space and most likely contributed to the mishap. All elese was perfect as per my usual experience. We will be back

Almost everything was terrific as usual except for the service. When seated , we had to wait too long to be recognized. Several waiters would look at us seated with no acknowledgement. We were very surprised bc this is not the norm. Also, when we finished dessert, we were not asked if we would like to order anything else. I was planning on ordering coffee.

Went to Mastro’s Ocean Club to celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. The over hour drive from Rancho Cucamonga was worth it. Food, drinks and service was outstanding not to mention the Ocean View. In top three of meals I have ever had. Appetizers, sides and main entree were all perfect.

A great dining experience. The waiters and wait staff were excellent! Suggestions from the waiter were on point and the food was excellent! Loved my Cosmopolitan!
Front desk needs work., Did not like the live music in the bar. It equated to making the noise level to the point of annoyance. The duo playing did not fit in with the general ambiance. Instead, they should play upbeat background music from different genres.

We’ve been to Maestros Ocean Club many times. The menu isn’t unique but they do a great job with everything on it. We were SO happy that they had east coast oysters and they were fresh and delicious. The steaks are amazing and side veggies always perfectly cooked (steamed or sauteed). The drinks are generous perfectly mixed and lots of choices. We didn’t have dessert this time but the emphasis is usually on deliciousness and not “healthy” (as it should be). Only disappointment this time was the Caesar salad was good but not on par with everything else.
