I have been to several Mastro‘s in the past, and this one at Newport Beach surpasses the mall. It’s hard to choose what you want all have a very varied menu. Knowing that everything you have or will order will be the best. I love coming to this restaurant for a nice quiet enjoyable time. Thank you Mastro‘s
Dining here made our 53 rd Anniversary very special. The staff was terrific, best steaks we have had and the view was spectacular. An occasion and locale we shall remember
The mega restaurant chain, Landry's Inc. has created a great high end restaurant with superior steaks, sides, and wine. This location draws in Newport Beach's wealthy and beautiful people so it is an interesting place to see and be seen. That being said, there is a certain sense of chaos that the smaller locally owned restaurants avoid. Even on a Monday night, their tables were booked so tightly that we had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. They offered us an opportunity to go to the bar while we waited but there was no seating in the bar due to the "bar scene" that draws in the locals. Once we were seated we had a rotation of no less than 8 different people bringing us bread and water, taking our wine order, another person bringing the wrong wine, another person bringing the right wine, our actual waiter taking the order, a different person delivering food, a different person clearing plates, etc. It is nice to be attended to regularly but a bit impersonal to rarely see the same person twice. A few helpful tips, ask about the specials as ours never told us. When they ask you how you like your meat cooked, please know that the plates come very hot, beyond anything I have experienced, so the meat continues to cook while be delivered and while you are getting your sides portioned out. Consider requesting one step less cooked than you usually enjoy. Our waiter didn't let us know this handy tip so ours was more well done then expected. For a more intimate experience, I recommend locally owned restaurants like The Winery and Selanne Steak Tavern. They offer equally good food but a more intimate service level and a more enjoyable experience.
No complaints about anything until around 7:30pm when the place was full. The noise level was very loud. However, my wife and I have noted this is apparently becoming a trend it seems at most restaurants. I will no doubt return - the service was excellent and they fulfilled all my requests...and then some. But I will be getting there as early as possible so that I can be gone before the noise level gets too high.
Missed App, missed side, incorrect check.
The best restaurant in OC!
Great atmoshere and wait staff. View was spectacular, as usual. Sat by window with sunset view over Pacific. Food was very good.
Had a lovely time there for Valentines Day/anniversary.. we will be back.. we absolutely loved it.
The food and the service were excellent. Great view
I eat at Mastros very often and the food is always excellent. The service is usually unlike no other, but was very disappointed on my last visit. The waitress was rude and did not pay attention to our table.
As always this is the best restaurant in Southern California. I eat out a lot, scoring in the top one or two percent of Opentable diners. I spend a lot eating in top restaurants. You can’t go wrong here. I suggest you take your time and order a 5 course meal. You’ll love it! Their wine list is exceptional too, as is the evening entertainment. Service is impeccable, and the restaurant is beautiful inside. Drinks are expensive but generous. Its a seafood restaurant but also with the best steaks you’ll find anywhere. They sell A5 here too. I definitely recommend a bottle of Alpha Omega ERA cabernet
Superb in every detail. Our favorite special occasion dining experience.
Outstanding service and food!
The lavender drink is amazing! Wagyu was like nothing I've ever eaten before.
The butter cake is to die for!!
Best server ever!
You guys never disappoint me, you guys are always my first choice.
Incredible food and service. Can't wait to visit again!
It was probably a mistake to go here on Valentine's Day as it was probably much more busy than usual and the kitchen crew was stressed. The hostess and waitress were very good, however, the food was underwhelming - steaks were overcooked and dry, the green beans were undercooked and very crunchy. The potatoes and bread were just okay. I also felt that we were in a very dark area and needed a flashlight to read the menu which is a bit ridiculous. The chocolate sin cake was okay, not spectacular. Again, great wait staff. Kitchen had an off night.
Excellent as always!
Everything was amazing. Started with the crab cakes. Then moved onto the 32oz tomahawk rib eye, lobster mash & sautéed mushrooms. Finished with the butter cake. Amazing. Best meal ever. Seriously. Brought a bottle of Dos Lagos cab. $35 corkage is a little steep and service was a bit spotty but the food.......
Service was excellent, food was OK but we felt rushed to eat and get out!
Mastro's has always been a favorite of ours and has continued to be one of our top favorites to dine at.
Very crowded, we had a reservation and were seated in about 15 minutes. Table in the middle of other tables, so not cozy. Very loud/lively atmosphere. Our waiter was great! The food was a bit above average but not good enough for the price. My date had the halibut that looked beautiful but was flavorless. My filet had a very good flavor and was charred on the outside per my request. I would recommend dining here but not if you want quiet or serious conversation!
Always great! The Manager is very friendly and you often see him pitching in serving wine when they are short of staff. A dedicated Manager is what makes this place amazing.
Atmosphere was great. Filet was excellent with the exception of the 12 oz steak was raw in the middle
The food and service was top notch, no complaints at all.
Mastros is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent and the service and atmosphere are amazing! We were celebrating my daughter’s acceptance into college and were pleased we chose Mastros. Be sure to bring your credit card! It’s easy to spend $100 per person!
We requested a table closer to bar that is what we got it was perfect corner overlooking entire area took pic posted to social media on,y a couple of things please make the music better it is so blah more upbeat happy music then the women are dressed to the tens how do they allow certain men to come in with shorts and baseball caps there were two guys there they shouldn’t be allowed this is such a beautiful restaurant and it should have a dress code
Another great experience at Mastro's. Love sitting in the courtyard because you get to hear the live music and take in the pretty lights on the tree. Our server was awesome and the food was fantastic! Prices have gone up again, but it's still a wonderful night with lots of ambience.
Except for the table behind us that allowed their children to run around the restaurant, yell and scream and occasionally kick my husbands chair this experience was awesome. We asked to move to another table away from the loud family and after that it was really a great time. Food, service and the ambiance was top notch!
Our steak was fantastic! Service was over the top good!
