Every dish we had was marvelous! Filet done to perfection, scallops were fabulous, lobster mash potatos exquisite and the mac and cheese just wonderful! Oh, don't forget to save room for dessert - warm butter cake - absolutely the best!

Our Waiter was excellent, the food was cooked perfect! Definitely make sure you make reservations on a Friday Night. Was a perfect evening for me and my girl. The price is about the same as going to Lawry's ( not a secluded of and atmosphere, but obviously alot more items to the menu) just be careful the costs can add up if your not selective. And 1 side is plenty for two people.

Food was great but service was slow and very noisy . Very busy and the tables are very close to each other. But you still can’t hear yourself talk to you’re husband .
I would go back but only if I know is not going to be romantic, fast service and I’m not going to talk much .

The atmosphere is very upscale. We were first seated at a table with a lot of traffic but upon request we were quickly and seamlessly moved to a more accommodating table. The service was wonderful and very responsive. Our server had a great personality, was very responsive to whatever requests were made, and answered any and all questions about the food. The food served was delicious, well prepared and well presented. No one had any complaints about the food, service or ambience. One complaint was the cost of a drink at the bar - Glenlivet 12 was $19.50 - almost the cost of an entire bottle. Mastros was fabulous but it is overpriced.

Have dined at Mastro's many times, especially this location. Had a drink in the bar and the drink and the service were great. We were then seated at a small table on the aisle in the restaurant which was somewhat noisy.
The food was great as one would expect, but the service was spotty compared to our other visits. One waitress came up and introduced herself and took our order for appetizers. When she brought the appetizers another waitress was with her and said I'll be your server tonight? Perhaps the waitstaff was short handed that night but we seemed to be forgotten at times, having to try and get the servers attention by flagging her down.
Our special occasion was overshadowed by the service we received.

Quite disappointed with Mastro's Ocean Club. Booked a reservation for 3 at 9PM on a Saturday for a friend's birthday. We waited 25 minutes to be seated. Ordered the bone-in Ribeye medium rare plus. The ribeye served to me was rare near the bone and well done at the edges. On the other hand, the sauteed wild mushrooms, lobster mashed potatoes, and the butter cake were very good.
I think our waiter forgot about us because he was no where to be found for 25 minutes.

Service was excellent. Appetizers and cocktails were great. The bar scene was a trip (rich men/women who clearly forgot how old they are) so if you do go then have a cocktail in the bar and the lobster bisque and enjoy the people watching. Entrees were nothing special and NOT worth the money. Wine list was over priced too. For a cocktail, appetizer, $110 bottle of wine and entrée the bill was $470 for two of us. WAY over priced. And honestly the entrees were nothing special (NY Strip and Sea Bass). Go to Broadway in Laguna and enjoy better food for far less money.

My wife and I have made multiple visits to Mastro's Ocean Club and enjoyed every visit. Reserving a favorite table, good wine by the glass and filet that is unsurpassed is awesome. Lettuce wedge, with bacon that's warm, scalloped potatoes, etc. oh so good! Save room for desert, warm butter cake. The only negative was my tasting and accepting a bottle of Franciscan Meritage that was a bit off in the flavor profile, perhaps stored with a bit of heat?. This was my mistake not our server. Anyway... please consider Mastro's for an exceptional dining experience.

We had reservations for 8pm but didn’t get seated until 8:30 in a noisy part of the restaurant with no apology from a manager. Our service in the dining room was very good as expected but management doesn’t seem to be concerned by the average customer. Friday’s seem to be unusually busy and I wouldn’t recommend the restaurant at busy times since the dining experience doesn’t meet the expectations for the prices charged.

I have been to this location before and the one in South Coast and typically everything is exceptional. However this time was a little different. The table was not ready in time, in fact 20 minutes late, not a big deal but it just bothered me a little bit. Drinks in the bar are always amazing and the live entertainment was great. Table was good, outside on a great night was nice. Our steaks were over cooked, I did not send them back because I hate that person, but they were far from what I am used to. The service was pretty good but not as good as usual. To be honest I left disappointed. Its not the cheapest place, but really that has nothing to do with it, I did not get the service and the food was far from what is could and usually was.

We have been to Mastro's in Newport Beach 3 other times and loved the service and food. This visit was a very disappointing special birthday celebration for my husband and myself. We made an early dinner reservation at 5:45 to ensure a good table. We were sat next to a noisy group in the middle of the restaurant, there were plenty of open window tables. Our waitress had a dirty jacket on and was not very attentive. My husbands steak was over cooked, when we mentioned to our waitress she exclaimed "I ordered it to be med-rare" and took the steak to the kitchen. Another steak was quickly served to my husband by a manager. We have had superb service in the past, that is what brought us back. I asked to have our sides boxed up to take home. We had no boxes to take home when it was time to go. For the money, unless the service improves, we will not be back. I gave a 3 star overall because of the company, not the service. 2.5 stars for the experience.

I wanted to pick a really nice place to eat and since we've been to the Mastros in Costa Mesa many times, I thought Mastros Ocean Club would be a great change and still be offer a great dining experience. We arrived before out reservation time and had to wait.

The annoying thing was we had been sitting for a while and a group of four came after us and had the same reservation time as we did and they were seated right away. The hostess then came up to us and said we could sit at the bar right away. I didn't make reservations to be seated at the bar. I called her on seating those other guys and why were they seated before us. She had no answer and seemed a bit flustered. She offered us some champagne and then the manager came over a few minutes later and apologized for the wait.

Other than that is was great. Michael, our waiter was prompt, attentive and did a great job. Ocean Club seems to give preferential treatment to people who seem to be upper class even though I'm pretty sure we spent a lot more than the 4 people whom they sat before us.

Great shrimp cocktail. Gotta try their house horseradish sauce.

Great service. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and made great recommendations for the entire course.

Spectacular wine list.

Great place to come for special occasions. Strongly recommend reservations, especially for weekends.

Quality of food matches the price.

Great view of the ocean.

Sat at bar for a drink first and service was perfect. Settled bar bill before we moved to dine.
We were Dodger fans so asked to have a table
So we could watch and enjoy a wonderful dinner and still see the Dodgers win to go to the World. series.
We shared a12 oz filet that was the best ever.
Hot, Juicy and we shareed 2 large portion
