The outside tent that they are using is an abomination to the experience. The whole experience was diminished by the ambiance.

We made a reservation for 9:30 PM to sit in the main seating area. At 10:45 we were offered to sit in the bar area because there wasn’t an estimated time for us to be seated in the main area. Unbeknownst to us we were seated at a table near a party of about eight who were extremely loud and obnoxious in their behavior. It was one of the most stressful dinners experience and was not what we were expecting as first time gets to the restaurant. My food was just OK. I ordered the ribeye and lobster tail surf and turf with a side of cream spinach garlic mashed potatoes and mushrooms. The server was very nice and accommodating. He did provide me with truffle butter and a warm butter cake as a courtesy for the loud and obnoxious party. Although the gesture was appreciate it and taken into consideration, it Didn’t make the experience more excepting. This will be the first and last time probably we visit the restaurant.

Usually good service however our waiter needs a personality. Didn't even acknowledge that we were celebrating a special anniversary until the end of the meal.

I went to celebrate my birthday at a nice restaurant and their outdoor seating was under a tent in the parking area. Definitely not what I expected from Mastro’s. Service was amazing but we were not thrilled about the ambience or food. Won’t be going back to this location, the Costa Mesa one is our usual and we regretted the change.

Everything was great. The salmon, sea bass, asparagus, tomato and burrata, were excellent. The Mac and cheese was very ordinary, though.

The butter cake was salty. It wasn’t as good as the waiter “advertised” :)

We made a reservation for “outdoors” nearly two months in advance. Mastro’s doesn’t disclose that “outdoors” means their camping tent in a parking lot. When I’m looking to have a nice meal and spend $500+ for two people, I don’t want to be in a parking lot tent with zero ambiance. Why does the tent parking lot area still even exist? Orange County doesn’t have any Covid restrictions. There’s no need for parking lot dining anymore. A high end restaurant shouldn’t be making any of their guests eat in a parking lot if it’s not required. When I chose “outdoors” I was expecting the area that is within the restaurant in the outdoor patio, which I’ve eaten at before. It’s under the tree in the center of the restaurant and very nice. When I asked to be moved because I didn’t want to eat in a parking lot, I was given attitude and told “indoor reservations were booked 5-6 weeks in advance” ok… I booked my outdoor reservation on the regular patio nearly 2 months ago. Why was I given attitude as if I hadn’t planned ahead? Disclose to your guests what “outdoors” really means.
Basically, everyone eating within the actual restaurant was 50+ years old and white. Everyone shuttled to the parking lot was not.

The hostess that was there on Thanksgiving night was the absolute sweetest and our server was amazing too! We had a great time! The food, the ambiance and everything was just perfect! So happy, bc our first experience there a while back was like night a day. Keep up the great work! Going to make this a tradition for thanksgiving and maybe even for Christmas if you’re open :))))))))))

The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Very disappointing. Bass was undercooked and flavorless, medium filet was bloody, bone marrow was bland, and server kept forgetting various items of the order (drinks, appetizers, etc), and we had to keep reminding her, and everything too much too long.

Slow to seat us. No Thanksgiving dinner. Entrees just ok. Everything is a-la cart. And sides were marginal. Wine very expensive by that glass. Highest in Newport Beach., at least for the Chardonnay I had. Would not go back. There are too many other good choices.

First time at this location. Was a holiday dinner but the place had no holiday vibe whatsoever. Expected upscale beach resort but felt like a cruise ship banquet room. Pop and hip hop music played loudly, great for a hopping bar scene but everyone there was having intimate late afternoon dinner in small groups. No special entertainment or decor touches for holiday season. GREAT service, very accommodating of requests and good food. Shame the atmosphere didn’t match.

One of the poorest culinary experiences at this price level I have experienced. I am accustomed to $350 meals for 2 people, but expect a certain level of quality at that price point. Every single dish was poor in some way -- the jumbo shrimp cocktail arrived room temperature warm and smelling of fish, the wedge salads were pedestrian, served with watery commercial dressing that could have come off a menu at Applebee's. Every vegetable side brought to the table was cold and underdone, the $80-$95 steaks were tough, stringy, and not cooked to our request. The one saving grace is that the atmosphere was second to none, the service by our amazing bartender Paige was OUTSTANDING, and the martinis were excellent. My advice: Sit at the bar, enjoy the service, the view, the ambiance, and the gargantuan martinis, but save your $$ and don't order the food. -- the food is really just barely Outback Steakhouse served in tuxedos.

Food and service are always amazing. The ONLY issue with dining here are the occasional loud and entitled patrons who think they're dining in their private dining rooms. You know the type... but you're in Newport Coast so what do you expect.

Outside dining. It was so windy that tables with dishes fell iver. Management should’ve ceased outdoor dining and placed us inside. It was so cold and our food took a while so the experience was not good.

This an amazing restaurant. The waitress changed my order to a different cut of steak. We were celebrating my birthday and my partner and I were splitting our steak. The starters were delicious, scallops and seared big eye tuna. We ordered Dungeness crab but they were already out by 6:30PM. The lemon drop martinis was exceptional. All of our drinks were exceptional. The only issue was receiving my Steak after everyone had finished eating, my partner wasn't happy so she did not want to eat at that point and i sat and ate alone for my birthday dinner because of the waitress. The manager was great about it though and handled the situation to the best anyone could. Unfortunately I still ate my birthday meal by myself while everyone else watched. I look forward to going back as it was an exceptional establishment, delicious food and hope to not receive the same mistakes again.

The food and service here are outstanding. It's clearly overpriced. Yet, it's highly popular and very busy. As someone from Atlanta, it just seems I could have a meal as great as this, but at a cost that's a good 25% less. So, like everything else in CA it's more expensive.

We felt the ambiance was also too busy for the price point. The table next to us brought their 3 year old, who ran around and was disruptive to a point. If I was going to spend nearly $200 each, I'd spring for the sitter.

Sorry CA, this place is nice, but it doesn't need to cost this much

Other than the fact that you guys tolerated the behavior of very childish belligerent and disrespectful men. I don’t know that I was able to have an enjoyable evening whatsoever. There was a for lack of better words, a gentleman who was asked to leave because he wouldn’t stop interfering and touching my belongings, and food. I don’t appreciate your management having no control or Interest in keeping someone out who was being inappropriate and had already been asked to leave. To top off this wonderful evening my dessert was literally ruined by this man sticking his hand in my food.

Do not request to sit outside…you will be placed in the parking lot (which I don’t know why they still have this)

Overall service was great, they moved us inside the restaurant. The food and drinks were phenomenal.
