slow service and had to wait 40 minutes for a table despite having a reservation
Excellent service, great food, extensive wine list, and fun supper club ambiance at Mastro’s. Great choice for a special occasion.
Awesome as always!! Entrees are consistently excellent!! Dungeoness crab cocktail appetizer is a favorite, along with sugar snap peas and garlic mashed potatoes.
Other than open-table sending me a message that I should cancel my reservation is we were not coming! But we were there and I always cancel if we are not keeping our reservation! That was a bit strange but Mastros is always great!
It was a nice night to have a dinner. The waitress we had was great and constantly checked on us to see how we were doing. Our table placement was a bit awkward and was a bit loud for our liking, but we enjoyed our night. Nice environment and great food.
Great place love sending out executives there
This place is my favorite restaurant,every time we feel so good be here, however, today is a ....... I don’t know how to say it. Waiters take our Appetizer and salad but we not yet finish it, very rush, then our had a wrong order. Then , our Japanese A5 steak come, it’s not worthy. I don’t know what’s happened, maybe 8:45 for dinner is too late or everyone want to home early. Today is Father’s Day, but it’s not a good dinner.
Only reason I gave them 4 stars is the filet mignon was over cooked and dry. They sat us at a table in route to the kitchen, restrooms and people being seated. The table block the route so much that people were bumping into our chair. The table had a wine bucket behind me and the waiter kept squeezing in and out. On the positive side Charlie the waiter was GREAT. He notice the situation, told the the manger. She apologize, and after dinner we got three huge different deserts and the were delicious!
Fathers Day... we just lucked into a reservation on Fathers Day while we were on vacation. They had a special buffet menu that was incredible. They had a table with the freshest seafood tower- shrimp, crab claws , lobster- which was only one of many delicious choices. There was also live music . The white table cloths and fabulous service was worth every penny.. we loved it! We will definitely go again on s normal day because we sampled so much that they have to offer and it was all great!
Mastro's is not cheap. I would only recommend to friends with money. We really did enjoy the Brunch, but it was pricey.
The restaurant was busy. However, you did not fill like you were being rushed. The staff attentive and the food was excellent for a brunch. The fresh seafood tower where you could get half a lobster, larger shrimp, crab legs, oysters was delicious. This location only does brunch three times a year.
Great food and service. The ambiance was elegant with a smooth classic upscale beach vibe. Perfect birthday celebration with my wife. The live music was impressive.
We couldn't believe it costs $15 per steak to add butter on top of the steaks. I should have deducted it of our server's tip since he never mentioned it.
Excellent food, service and ambiance as always!!!
We went for our anniversary, it was our first time there. It was superb. The nicest wait staff. Provided assistance with the menu & went above & beyond. A wonderful experience.
Love this place! Celebrated our anniversary and love the food, the view, and the service!! Wonderful!
Excellent service (Robert); delicious fare; sumptuous servings! Delightful experience!!
Our Server was fantastic and the halibut was out of this world! The atmosphere was energetic especially with the NBA finals going on. Always a pleasure when in town.
Fantastic! Service by Rachel was awesome
My husband and I have been wanting to go here for quite some time and decided to do it for our anniversary dinner this year. We had an absolute amazing time. Everyone was friendly. Our waiter was amazing he was knowledgeable and because it was our first time he really helped us navigate the menu with lots of information and recommendations and all were excellent. Thank you again for a wonderful time. We will definitely be back!!
We've been to the Mastro's in Beverly Hills. This one is even better. Fantastic.
A fabulous meal, looking at the ocean, with an amazing wait staff, make this one of the best dining options in Orange County. The bone-in ribeye is amazing, and the sea bass was divine. Both were cooked to absolute perfection, with not too much butter. Truly enjoyable!!!
The manager Kathy Katouzian is beyond amazing. She made sure we had a terrific waiter, Travis, as well as doing a special dessert for my son's birthday. Mastro's is always fabulous, but with Kathy and Travis, it was over the top fantatstic!!!
Daughter’s university graduation
Everything was fabulous. We were celebrating our Anniversary and the staff were rather accommodating. It was very busy and our wait for the outside patio was a little longer than expected, but the view was breathtaking!
Had a wonderful dining experience at Mastro's! The food is always amazing - our group enjoyed the rib eye steak, filet mignon, mac-n-cheese, Brussels sprouts and the Ocean House salad. All of the food was perfectly prepared and the vibe was so much fun. We were delighted to have our FAVORITE server, Mark! He is very professional, attentive and makes each of our dining experience's exceptional!
Great food. We sat in front of a football team at training camp so it was a bit louder
Everyone was really welcoming. Went for my son's high school graduation and the brought him a dessert that said congratulations on the top of the plate and his future college mascot name at the bottom. Very cool personal touch that my son loved!
It was my first time here celebrating my anniversary with my girlfriend. The waiter was amazing. Was very knowledgeable about the menu. He made us feel welcomed and right at home. This was an amazing experience.
Staff really shows how much they love working for Mastro’s. It was our 2 year anniversary and they included dessert for us. Would totally recommend this place, food was amazing !!
I've been to this restaurant several times by now and my problem is that I never walk away from this place feeling I had a great experience.
This is a fairly expensive place that can easily reach $100 per person. This is not necessarily a bad attribute, some times you have that special guest or event that you want something extra. Their food is good, service is very good, and the ambiance is fabulous. But food is not exceptional, service does not stand out, and the flavor is a little outdated. For the price, i feel like there are many other local options that offer better food and service. Also, there are many places that offer similar level of service and food for much better price.
We frequent Mastros often and it’s our favorite restaurant. However, last night they were very busy with graduation parties, weddings, etc. We were disappointed to be seated in a very busy location for our Anniversary...made the reservation a month ago. They told us we could be relocated but would have to wait 30 minutes. We chose to stay at our table. We ordered the Lobster Roll which we’ve had before and enjoyed...but not up to par last night. I ordered the petite filet and it was over cooked. I didn’t say anything because I was starving. My husband also had a steak and really enjoyed it. As always we enjoyed the Butter Cake got desert and our martinis. It was just an off night for them.
Had a great time with my clients
Food and service was excellent, noise level high and they sat us right by the waiter stand
I loved the ambiance and the live band just started right on time. I asked them to sing a bday song for my hubby and he's so flattered. Love the food there the ribeye is just so delicious! Great place for date and family celebration!
Great location, dinner room was incredibly packed. We were being nudged and bumped the entire night. It was also extremely loud. After dinner we had to admit everyone was reading lips most of the night. The New York Strip 16oz was very good, lobster mash was disappointing, as was the Chilean Sea Bass.
Birthday dinner was great. View was great. Dirty martini was great. Dungeness crab was great. Waiter with the beard was great. Tomahawk wagyu was great. Butter cake great.
We were celebrating my 50th bday and from the moment we walked in until we left they acknowledged my celebration. They sat us near the window where we were able to see the ocean and the service was awesome! It was an amazing experience!
Hi there. Please excuse my rough review. I don't usually go to high end restaurants but have found quite a few gems. This was not a gem. Simply put, the ambiance and taste unfortunately did not match the price. I expected more from the blackened char than the fillet that seemed to resembles a cut portion from Costco. I believe there is a lack of creativity somewhere that is lost on me. Taste and presentation fell below expectations. The silver lining here was our server whose name I believe was Kevin. He's attentiveness was second to none.
