Had a very pleasant meal to celebrate my husband's 40th. Our server Daniel was attentive, but not annoyingly or overly so. He was knowledgeable and helpful. Food is very consistent, this was my 3rd visit. Nice selection of oysters. Onlysuggestion would be to expand wine list (by the glass) to more Old World styles - it's very heavy on California wines. Would have been nice to see a greater selection of French wines by the glass, but apparently this is the case across all Maestro's locations.

Food is outstanding. The M Bar is the way to go if you like a fun atmosphere. The music is always excellent. My wife and I have been celebrating our Anniversaries there for about 20 years. Hat's off!

We went to celebrate my dad’s birthday. The food is amazing, ambiance is good. They offer free birthday cake for my dad. The only thing is the AC is very cold for the specific seat my husband was sitting and we told the server several times but they didn’t really do much. My husband got sick when he got home.

The staff from the hostess to the waiter were nothing special. Hostess had us waiting when our table was ready. When we asked what the status was she said oh you're ready? We were like yes we checked in 10 minutes ago. Another hostess apologized for her blunder but it didn't start the night on a good foot. Waiter was okay but when you're paying for an expensive dinner you expect a little better service.

Had a reservation, got there on time, but had to wait 10 ~ 15 min to be seated. We ordered two of what’s called their Chef-cut rib eye, but ended up getting different cut of meat which cost 2X if what we ordered. Server claimed that my finger pointed to this item which was right above the item we ordered. Obviously, she ignored what I said. They did adjust our bill, but at the end, we had a $300 dinner where we ended up with very lean steak when we wanted to have juice and marbles rib eye.

Bad experience and unhappy with them not replacing the meat.

Other than their fancy deco, I didn’t see any reason why they should cost much more than Ruth’s Chris.

Food and service are what you would expect from a Mastro's property. However, the Orange County mark up on their wine list, even more, aggressive than Az or their other geographies will leave a bad taste in your mouth. Very disappointing to have such an obvious money gouge in what otherwise is a tasteful experience.

I took my son here to celebrate him for a special occasion. I ordered salmon and it was horrible ( over cooked and no flavor) I even brought the leftover salmon to my husband at home and he said ,”that was the worst salmon with no flavor”
My sons steak was decent. They brought him a complementary dessert to celebrate and obviously it was old cake they had to get rid of cause it tasted stale..
I didn’t wanna complain and ruin my sons evening since it was supposed to be a memory to celebrate.
We drove 40 miles to dine here thinking it was gonna meet or exceed our expectations and they failed.
I sadly don’t recommend this restaurant at all.

Had a great time. Service was amazing. Loved the staff and their ability to make you feel important. However my steak was under cooked and the portion size for my friends was smaller than usual. Caesar was also subpar think someone was just having a long day. not with what we paid but I did enjoy being there.

Excellent food and excellent service. This was the first time ever without having a steak. We ate so much amazing seafood I couldn't even think about a steak. The only thing I would have changed was the lighting, all 3 of us thought it was too dark. But I will be back none the less.

We were seated immediately at our reservation time, which was great. All the staff was friendly and professional. The restaurant was EXTREMELY loud and it took a long time for us to be greeted. Although we really liked our server, I recall last time being there we had a team of servers and they were constantly paying attention to our needs. The food was quite good, although the steaks didn't come with much butter or parsley on top as described/expected. The seafood tower was fabulous, and so was the Hamichi. I was disappointed that Albacore with truffles was no longer available. The butter case was great! Disappointing that we asked for more whipped cream (party of 4) and it never arrived. If we come back I'll ask to be seated in a more intimate area since we could hardly hear one another speaking. Also, it was VERY DARK, to the point where we had to use our phones to see the menu. Overall this is my 4th time going to Mastro's, and it was my least favorite experience, unfortunately. However, I'd like to give it another try!

My husband and I always go to Mastro's for our anniversary. They just can't be topped. We've been to many steak houses, both on the low and high end, and no one compares to the quality of the food, the ambiance, perfect steak temperature, and impeccable service. Our waiter was Toby, and he was outstanding. Thank you Mastro's for perfecting all the details that truly matter in fine dining.

We had terrible service. We first started at a table next to a stairway / walkway which gave a lot of traffic around our table. We had to ask three times before we got moved. Once we got moved, the waiter, however earnest, did not get our orders right and missed that we had theater tickets and had a timetable for dinner. Our dinner came very very slowly (almost an hour from ordering to entrees) and we ended up missing the theater. Overall, the experience was not personal at all and it felt very industrial in its approach. It was quite busy so evidently a lot of people like it. We have been to this Mastro's multiple times over the years and our experience has degraded over the last 2 to 3 years. I doubt we will go back. There are so much more inviting restaurants around.

I asked them to put Happy Birthday on the menu for my boyfriends birthday and they did put it for us. Not only that, all the servers knew about his birthday and congratulated my boyfriend. Of course the food was wonderful and we had the amazing time there.
