Our party of 12 Had a wonderful time. They handled our large group very well, food all came out together. Server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and was very enthusiastic in his guest approach. Bone in Ribeye was the best I’ve ever had. Not one person had anything negative to say about their food or overLl experience.
Salted caramel martini was delicious and always live the pretzel breadsticks.

When I called to make reservation for next day, first they put me on hold for 20 minutes and then they told me they do not have any availability and maybe after 9:00 O'clock. I had to hang up the phone with no results. I logged on Open Table website and found out that they did indeed had openings for party of 8 all day and I could choose any time I like. The initial image I got from the staff was very disappointing!! Other than that the food and dinner service is great and we always enjoy our dinner there. The waiters are really informative and great to talk to as well.

I generally dine at this restaurant when I am in Newport Beach. This was the best overall meal that I have had here going back about 10 years. All four members of our party had an excellent meal with entrees ranging from fish to lamb to beef. Service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Our party of 4 had a 6:00pm reservation on a Thursday night, and we arrived 30 minutes early to have a drink at the bar before being seated. The bar was very crowded and very loud, but we were promptly greeted by a gracious cocktail waitress who offered to take our drink order even though we were unable to find a seat. I checked in with the hostess several times around our reservation time, and she said that they were running about 15 minutes behind schedule and that they would come and find our party when our table was ready. Whoever was looking for us was unable to find us, and we were seated just before 6:30pm. Our food server was outstanding as was the food that we enjoyed, but Mastro’s needs to figure out a more efficient seating policy on busy nights. Patrons have a higher standard for this caliber of restaurant and area.

Always my go to restaurant for holidays and special occasions. LOVE Mastro’s-especially my home location of Ocean Club....Elaine is THE best server! Flawless execution from Elaine always to compliment the exceptional food and drink. The touch of my girlfriend’s name on the menu in celebration of her birthday was beyond impressive and very much appreciated!

First let me start by saying, we love Mastros Ocean Club. Our dining experience was just okay this trip. It's usually excellent and if not for the excellent service from bartenders, JP and Austin, I would have rated our service 3 stars. Our server, Brett was just too much. His personality was just loud and boisterous and honestly just way over the top for fine dining. We really weren't expecting that type of interaction between server and guest. We were expecting a more intimate experience. With that said, we will definitely be back. We have been coming to this location for about the past 10 years and our past experiences have always been top notch

The food and service were first rate. However we were seated in at a table that was right by the flow of other customers being seated and also right by the computers used by the wait staff. It was not the ambience that I had hoped for the two birthdays we were celebrating. I wished we had been seated at a more "interior" table away from the above-mentioned distractions, especially since I had made the reservations several months earlier and not at the last minute. Hoping this will not happen again.

The food at Mastro’s is wonderful but what sets Mastro’s above others is their commitment to service. Service was above and beyond throughout the entire meal, but even extended to the next day when I received a phone call making sure that our dining experience was all that we hoped it would be.

Great service and the best steaks and shrimp cocktail anywhere. And of course the butter cake... Only disappointment were the onion rings, sadly no onion flavor and the batter was extremely undercooked.

We had a marvelous Thanksgiving evening with Alison as our engaging, attentive and kind waitress. The food was amazing as usual. The slight drawback was the heating situation on the covered patio which was inconsistent, due to guest preferences and the room design. Aesthetically it was a lovely setting with a view, even though it rained and we couldn't see the ocean. With all of the people at the restaurant that evening, we felt very well taken care of by Alison and your entire staff. Thank you and Merry Days!

It was our anniversary. We wanted a special table. They put us in the back, far back.... a tent when in the main did big there was plenty of room. We sat across from a couple that looked like they were on their way to fast food. Sweatshirt, jeans and flip flops. We were all dressed up excited to enjoy our fine dining experience.
This was a joke. Can’t believe they have no dress code. It cheapened our experience. The food was amazing though. Just won’t be spending a special occasion there again since they don’t value that...

Used to Mastro’s Steakhouse in Costa Mesa. Our server was the worst we have had at any Mastro’s (Bev Hills, Palm Springs, Vegas, DC, Costa Mesa). King Crab legs were dry, tasteless and seemed like they had been frozen for a looong time. Steak was excellent as always. This is my second mediocre Ocean Club experience in Newport and one horrible experience in Vegas. Will never go back. Sticking with Steakhouse in Costa Mesa, Bev Hills or Palm Springs.

Our server was not really attentive and didn’t pay much attention to the details. I asked for lime and he brought lemon, he missed my husbands soup, my kids did not get drinks for about 15 minutes and I had to ask twice, etc. he just seemed distracted

I took my husband for his 50th birthday and our waitress wasn’t the friendliest and didn’t give us the time of day
At one point we thought she went on break and forgot about us

We always have a great time when we dine in the restaurant. Unfortunately, I had the worst experience in summer when my sister and I decided to eat at the bar. We called and asked if we needed to reserve and they answered free seatings . We asked the same question at the reception when we arrived and she said first come first serve. Two persons were leaving and we took their seats at the bar. The bar tender asked us to move as he promised two men to find them seats. He was impolite, embarrassed us in front of all! Very shocking to be treated this way at Mastro’s. I refused to move and we had another bar tender serving us. Terrible experience. I did report the incident to the manager that night.
