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.
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!
