Since my husband is a steak lover. I chose to celebrate his special birthday in this restaurant. It was our first time here but the server is friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic. The ambiance was a little dark but it was tolerable. The view was awesome.
Thank you Mastro’s!
As always predictably good.
Food, Service and View were impeccable!! Be prepared to spend $$. For my wife and I on our 19th wedding anniversary, it was all that we had hoped.
Size of Shrimp in shrimp cocktail getting smaller. Time for this restaurant to pay attention and head back toward perfection.
I would not recommend Mastros based off my first experience
Tables were very close together and loud.
We were sat at a very small table that was very crowded so we asked to be moved which was done ASAP . It was very busy for a Sunday night so loud and fairly slow service.
Great Birthday celebration! Love the Lobster Rolls, Burrata abd Tomato Salad, Wedge Salad and yellowtail appetizers. We all head filets or Seabass. Everything was great and the Butter Cake is not to be missed!
We definitely love this restaurant and always celebrate our birthdays here. I will say the sides this time left a little something to be desired (mac n cheese, scallop potatoes and creamed corn). Steaks were excellent as always.
We were celebrating our girlfriend’s birthday! The food, the service was excellent and the performance of amazing musicians!!
No room for waiting guests. They chopped the wedge salad. Bone in filet was tough. Bread basket was nice. Average service. Under staffed with a over crowded restaurant
This was our first time to Mastro’s and it was an incredible experience! Great location, great service and great food!
I celebrated my 50th Birthday dinner, and it didn’t disappoint. The minute you walk in, the ambiance, service is outstanding. The food, drinks and experience was awesome. Worth it!
Our business dinner meeting was absolutely Mastros level first class! Literally perfect in every way. From the reception team, to the chefs, to Hanna our captain and her partners, to the gracious managers leading this outstanding team, the evening was absolutely outstanding. Please share our thanks to all for a wonderful evening!
Had a great evening at Mastro’s Ocean Club, got seated with a beautiful view of Catalina Island. Service was exceptional, and the food was first class. We enjoyed the live music so much that we went to the lounge and had an after dinner drink. We had two of MASTRO’S Signature dishes lobster mashed potatoes and butter cake, always delicious, worth the visit just for them.
We were celebrating my daughters 13th birthday and everything was perfect.
We went for our anniversary and the service was excellent from Kevin our waiter. He made the night memorable.
We were seated immediately and greeted by a server in a timely manner. Service was good and the food was great.
Food was excellent. The lobster mashed potatoes and truffle gnocchi were amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly too. The people in the table next to us were taking pictures and knocked my friend’s martini over. The staff was very concerned and offered a free round of drinks to us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but it’s not a place to go if you want a quiet evening.
Food was great (as usual). Waiter was great but overwhelmed. I mentioned this to the manager--they comped the 2 bottle corkage and offered us desert, and I asked for nothing! Typical for this high end restaurant, can't be perfect 100% of the time, but they more than compensate when they need to .
Thank you for everything!!
Another terrific dining experience at Mastro’s!
Everything was wonderful!
It was excellent. We started in the bar. Mike was great. We were one of the first in the dining room. Had a window seat waiting. Food was excellent as always. It was our 40th anniversary and had a great evening.
I am a longtime customer and this was my worst experience at Mastro’s.
The food was average at best and the service at the bar and the restaurant was bad.
I hope was just a bad day
We had a 7:30 reservation. We were told at check in it would be 10 mins and was offered to lounge and bar which was entirely too crowded not even standing room . Then the employees started seating people in the bar area where all the patrons were waiting for their reservations . Which created an unpleasant experience for all involved . We finally got a table an hour later . What was the purpose of reservations when the establishment doesn’t honor them ?! Once seated the table was in a thru way so lots of traffic around the table with servers tending to other tables . The waiter was not very attentive. It took 15 mins to get bread and butter to our table . Th food was just ok , the lobster mashed potatoes was loose not much lobster . The petit filet was ordered well no pink and the rib eye was ordered med well it came to the table rare. I’m writing this because I go to Mastros on my anniversary almost every year this year I was disappointed !
Large party of 11, including some well behaved children, Restaurant was very busy but our reservation and party were immediately seated, and welcomed by our incredible server- Fernando.
We enjoyed everything from salads to the delicious lobster rolls, steaks; crab cakes , cocktails etc. we enjoy a number of steakhouses in OC but everything about this dining experience was the best.”
Got to sit where I requested a week in advance, outside with a view of the ocean. Food and service was excellent. Only reason I won’t give it 5 stars is because when I first go there, I walked into the lobby, was not greeted by any of the 5-6 hosts that were there. They just stared at me, not even a smile, as I tried to figure out which desk to check in at. Then when I finally got to the right desk, the hostess ignored me, even though I was right in front of her. Very rude hostesses in the front, every other person there was nice.
Celebrated my husband’s 70th birthday on 8/30. Our server, Kevin, made it a truly event. Mastro’s is good, of course, but Kevin makes it great.
Patio dining was the best with ocean views. I have been here several times and inside the restaurant was very loud and was difficult to carry a conversation. Patio was a different experience and was lovely. The main entrees were great quality but was very bland. I got blackened spicy fish, but had no flavor. Shrimp roll was fabulous! Service was excellent. Bret was a great server. The staff at front were very friendly and greeted us with a smile.
I have been to Maestros many times and the food was fantastic
This recent experience however the food was sub standard
It was probably the worst tasting food I have had in several years
The sea bass is the best I have ever had! Excellent steak as well. Great atmosphere
Mastro’s never disappoints, an amazing meal with amazing service. The talented duo at the piano just made for a wonderful evening.
Great service and food
Great experience, but we had a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Other than that we were happy.
Unfortunately it was not a good experience. We have eaten at the Ocean Club several times and this time by far was the worst. We waiting almost 15 minutes after being seated for someone to approach our table. This is unexceptionable at this level of dining. The service was also under par, though they were busy, we expect more coming from Mastro’s. We were celebrating our 15th year Anniversary, and walked away very unsatisfied.
Waitress seemed very overwhelmed. We were a party of 5- pretty simple- but waitress was stressed. Brought out the wrong sides. But food was really good! All about the crab meat and butter cake!
Mastro's always make our dining experience absolutely wonderful. Service is top notch!!
The live music was absolutely beautiful. Their voices were the cherry on top to the ambiance of the restaurant. We had a beautiful seat in the courtyard type area next to the tree with the lights. We had a view of the ocean through the windows and also got to enjoy the live music and singing from the bar lounge area. The food was delicious, the portions were large, and we even got to enjoy the chocolate cake for a special occasion.
We have been coming here for years to celebrate special occasions and just a great experience. Every time we’ve visited we’re always impressed with the entire experience.
