Outstanding Dinner as usual at Mastro's. Our favorite place to celebrate and special occasion. Food was excellent ...great steaks an sides...sweet potato fries were outstanding. Great wine list with plenty to choose from. Upstairs was much more quiet and better for conversation at dinner. Stephanie our waitress was outstanding....one of the best we ever had at ANY restaurant. She was an excellent listener and made our experience at Mastro's one of the best ever. We celebrated our sons 21st birthday. It will be memorable for him based on the great food and excellent service.

A modern old time supper club feel. Tables aren’t too close together, tablecloths, nice size seating and tables, all excellent . Service was great and food was excellent.

A good steakhouse, but rather pricey for the value received. My friend and I went for dinner before a Blackhawks' game and the woman at the guest desk was rude to my friend because he was wearing "sports gear", and we wouldn't be allowed in the main dining room. Really rubbed me the wrong way, along with the steep prices. I can say I experienced dinner at Mastro's, but it will be my last time I go there.

Let me start by saying I've been to Mastro's in Chicago and Las Vegas roughly 8 to 10 times. All my experiences have been Five Star Plus. I've been there for birthdays anniversaries special occasions on numerous times but this past Saturday night was probably one of the worst dining experiences I've ever ever encountered. We had dinner reservations at 9 p.m and we did not get sat till after 10 p.m. With no explanation other than they were busy and waiting for an open table. There were three of us for dinner we each ordered steaks which took over an hour to receive our meals so now it's after 11. When I bit into my steak it was ice cold let me repeat that ice cold like it's been sitting outside for 15 minutes before they brought it to me. My guest then bit into his steak same result. We explain this to our server and she kindly took it off the bill but you would think for a place that was just voted 6th best Steakhouse in Chicago the service and the attention to detail would be much better. Chicago has so many options for steakhouses I can tell you I will never go back to this location. I was always excited to go there and eat but the way we were treated Saturday night was unacceptable.

We did have to wait quite awhile to be seated but I bumped my reservation back and was told that I would probably had to wait. Hostess gave us dessert....to die for butter cake at no charge for the inconvenience. Our server was fantastic. Food incredible. Quite the hot spot. We were seated in a luxurious booth so everyone ended up being happy about that. Had only dined at The Vegas location. This one is completely different. Great band playing in the lounge as well. Will definitely go back.

It’s rare to experience a complete game in baseball, never mind dining, but Mastros did it and hit a grand slam to boot. From the valet to hostess to coat check to table, through drinks, appetizers, salad, bread, main course, dessert and coffee - it was a complete evening. Hot, delicious food paired with great service.

Awesome! My boss and I took customers here during Fabtech. Plan on spending some money here. We got the seafood tower - presentation is pretty cool and huge amounts of seafoood. The butter cake at the end is a must. The customers were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed.

It was just OK. Not the usual special evening I have enjoyed in the past. The waiter was inattentive and not engaged. The food was good but not great. Two steaks came to the table undercooked. Not worth the expense.

Despite a 7:15 reservation I still had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. That’s unacceptable and has never happened beforehand re in my experience dining there. If that continues I will have to try Steak 48 or another Steakhouse

We went as a party of 6 with 2 children under the age of 12. What an amazing experience we had. The staff was helpful and fast, our seafood tower was amazing. The meat was great but would choose seafood next time. The deserts where an experience of their own. We had a blast and will come again.

The services experience was less than desirable. The food quality has diminished. I ordered a medium rare stake which was served rare. And, when I asked for it to be cooked a bit more, it came back 25 minutes later and it was burnt. Needless to say, we ended up paying for a stake we did not eat. I would not go back again.

Mastro's is a pretty good steakhouse, maybe even outstanding in another city. But Chicago has such a wealth of great steakhouses that Mastro's falls to the middle of the pack. Service was excellent, wine list was outstanding, and portions were large. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered, neither undercooked nor overcooked. But the prices at Mastro's should be matched by exceptional textures and flavors. The flavors here were no more interesting than we can get in a steakhouse at home in California, where the prices are 40% lower. We have had better steaks at other fine restaurants in Chicago, and paid no more than we paid at Mastro's. Summary: great service, good wine list, large portions, but missing that extra "something" that could make this place an outstanding venue.

I think it was on off day when I went. The steak...I've had a lot better in Chicago. The salmon was burnt and dry (& it was the servers fave). The server messed up some of our side orders and we got the correct items once we were finished with the entrees. Was not impressed.
