Waited for a table away from the bar , but once seated everything was terrific . Noise level ++++
I have been to this location many times and found the experience to be excellent. This time was definitely the exception. My wife ordered chicken which was extremely dry. we ordered 4 sides two of which were cold to just barely warm. Our server was excellent but obviously had too many stations due to the fact that we had to repeatedly ask for things we needed. We also found that when we arrived home that the sides we had requested to take home with us never made it in the bag.
We chose to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our 1st date at Mastros Ocean Club. It was exceptional. From our check in to our seating to our departure, we were made to feel so special. Congratulations were shared and acknowledged by everyone we came in contact with, even the manager! The service was also amazing! Our server, Wanessa, was perfect! Her knowledge of the menu, wine and cocktails made tough decisions easier. The holiday martini was super rich and creamy. I could've had more than one and the same was true for my husband's elderflower martini.
My only disappointment was they had run out of the Arctic char (this will warrant a return visit, for sure!) As a back up, I ordered the Lemon sole. There was so much yummy fish that I was unable to finish it all. My husband loved his scallops. The side dishes of Gorgonzola mac and cheese and roasted Brussels sprouts paired perfectly. There is a great selection of wine by the glass with varying price ranges. Something for everyone. Unfortunately we did not save room for their famous butter cake but we were surprised by a large piece of chocolate cake to mark our anniversary! The coffee and cappuccino were hot and tasty!
I used the ladies room on the way out and was surprised to see an attendant in there. She was super nice and handed my a towel after I washed my hands. Unfortunately, when I saw the tip jar I realized I had changed purses and had no cash. This made me feel a bit awkward.
Whether celebrating an occasion or just craving great food, Mastros is the go-to dining experience! Thank you all for making our celebration so special!
AAA+++ Mastro’s never disappoints as it is always delicious.
Used to be best service around, not this time. Waiter was hard to find, uninterested in anything more than minimum service. Had to flag them down numerous times for basic requests, not the Mastros of the past.
Simply stated Mastro’s is the best restaurant in Orange County. The food, service and attention to detail by the entire staff exceptional !
Splendid evening celebrating birthdays for two family members. Everything from the food to the service was absolutely impeccable. It was a bit noisy, but not too surprising for a Saturday night. Charlie, our waiter, was friendly, knowledgeable and added the perfect touch to make this a very enjoyable evening for all!
Had the best time!! Warmly welcomed and very well taken care of by Charlie our waiter!! He was the best and so very thoughtful!
We had a great time at Mastro’s, thank you. There were 6 of us including our grandkids ages 2 & 4.. We requested high chairs before arriving and they were set at our table when we arrived. The service was top notch and the hustle and bustle of a busy evening kept the kids interested and well behaved. Our portions were large and came on sizzling plates, always a nice feature but be warned your steak will continue to cook a bit once served. The kids loved the French fries which our server brought quickly which allowed the rest of us to enjoy our dinners.
I would go back.
Never disappoints. Always great food and selections. Great location.
We had a party of 5 and they put us in the bar at a bar top table for 4 stuffed in the corner up against the wine wall.
It would have been nice to sit in the restaurant at a nice table.
Staff was very accommodating providing my family with a beautiful window seat with wheelchair access as requested. Service was top notch the entire night. The food amazing as always. The only gripe was that we were provided with a very thinly sliced chocolate cake for five and no butter cake for my mother’s birthday. We spent quite a bit on our dinner so i was a bit disappointed with the less than stellar desserts at the end of the meal. We ended up ordering the butter cake, but it would have been nice to have been provided it from the beginning.
Always top notch!
Had an amazing dinner, filet was perfect, lobster mashed incredible. Music was great and of course signature desert. We had a wonderful table as well 304 or 305. We return every year when in the area. Special place.
Fantastic place to enjoy a great meal with your date. Service, ambience and food is off the charts.
Excellent service with Aly. Very friendly and always on top of our experience being perfect
Ambience is beautiful but food was cold this time and lacked flavor :(
Will try again but a bit disappointing.
Service was great as always
We celebrated my birthday. We loved the whole experience! This is officially our fav restaurant which we will be visiting more often!
Nice Bar. V. Expensive.
$52 fish with nothing else on the plate.
Great Service though felt rushed.
Hubby says won’t return.
Hadn't been here In about a year and have to say the food now was very disappointing. Steaks had no flavor and the fish tasted like it wasn't fresh.
We love the food at Mastro’s but we’re a little disappointed with the fact that l was charged for my slice of Birthday Cake that was brought to the table. Are they not usually complimentary especially when spending significant change
Great service and food, the ambiance is amazing along with great clientele. Music was very nice and our waiter was top shelf. Thank you Mastro’s for treating us very Special.
This was one of the best meals we have ever had! I ordered the filet. It was cooked to perfection and was probably the best piece of meat I’ve ever had. We had the butter cake for dessert which is out of this world! Can’t wait to go back!
I love Mastro's - particularly for the exceptional level of service and typically lovely setting. I took four friends who had never been to Mastro's for my birthday as I wanted them to experience a raised level of service and exceptional dining experience. This wasn't the case. I was really disappointed in the table location - in a center spot that was not pleasing to the eye at all, and did not experience that raised level of service that I am used to from Mastro's. The food was good (except for the crab shell AGAIN in the Alaskan King Crab gnocchi) but it is that extra special service, attention to detail and beautiful seating that really makes dining at Mastro's an experience. It was my favorite place, but, after going to this location twice and having a similar experience, I don't think I will go back. I felt let down as I wanted my friends to be wowed. Really disappointed in this experience.
Everything--the tasty drinks, the vibrant and friendly bartender (I believe her name was Alex), the exceptional food, the great service from our server--was FANTASTIC!!!!
Great service food was amazing customer service was outstanding and very helpful amazing view so romantic
This has been our family's "special occasion" restaurant for years and it's always an enjoyable experience. The food is fabulous and the service, exceptional! A special thanks to Mark T. and JP in the bar and our server, Sonya. They made it a very special 30th birthday celebration for our son.
The service was beyond excellent. The rib eye I ordered had more gristle than I would have liked but it was cooked to perfection. My wife enjoyed her Chilean Sea Bass. Overall it was an excellent evening and I would recommend it to friends and family.
Overall I find this place to be good. For a upscale dining, I expected a little more sophisticated decor with high ceiling and all. The food is good but I find it a bit more on the salty side. The service however is fantastic, appropriate for a good steakhouse. Wine director and the wine list won me over. The dishes however could use a bit more innovation.
Very nice dinner for my girlfriends birthday. Food was great, ambiance was great, service was great. We’ll be back. Thanks again!
Excellent food and service for thanksgiving dinner.
Thanksgiving tradition!! Great service and food!! Knowing there was 900 covers this night and everything was still perfect!!
Amazing ! We will be back !
Great meal and service. Always a favorite of mine!
We visited Mastro's for the first time on Thanksgiving Day. It's a beautiful restaurant situated across the street from the ocean, with a nice view. The website I looked at prior to booking mentioned a special Thanksgiving menu, but once at the restaurant we were never presented with any Thanksgiving specials at all. Only the regular menu was available. I was incredibly disappointed, but my family members who love seafood and don't care for the traditional Thanksgiving dishes were quite happy with their choices. I ended up ordering the herb roasted chicken, which was terribly boring and bland, even though it was very expensive. Even though I was very disappointed with Mastro's on Thanksgiving, I was impressed enough with the restaurant to want to go back sometime for the seafood on a date night with my husband.
Nice location, overpriced, but good quality steaks server was overworked as it got busier , so didn’t give much attention to our table
I’ve been to the ocean club in Malibu and had a wonderful experience, unfortunately at this location the bread was stale, the meat tasted off and the warm butter cake wasn’t warm at all, or fresh. The service was excellent however and the space is very pretty. There is so much good food in Laguna & Newport that if this chain wants to stay put it needs to have quality fresh food.
No me encanto que me sirvieran crab legs calientas. Normalmente se sirven fríos.
