Best martinis in OC. The steak with truffle butter just melts in your mouth. Five star service. I wish that valet was complementary as there is no other convenient parking.

Had a table for 4. The entres were very good. Side orders and wedge salads were fair. The service was poor compared to Mastros in Newport Coast. Server didn’t check on our table very often, forgot 2 coffees, then forgot another desert order, never poured our wine a second time. Appetizers took about 45 minutes. I was not impressed for the amount we spent.

I specifically asked for a more quiet area. I was placed in the noisiest bar area next to a super loud party of 10
Could not talk or hear. Really disappointed.
I am a regular customer 😞

Although the valet parking is NOT operated by Mastros, it was an absolute nightmare on Weds night. We sat in the parking line over 20 minutes to get our car into the restaurant valet parking lot. It was the most chaotic and disorganized way to start our evening. Our server was friendly and accommodating as we had theater tickets. The lemon drop martini with the dry ice never disappoints. The shrimp cocktail where large and flavorful. A manager stopped by our table to apologize and offer us a complimentary appetizer due to the valet and delay. Unfortunately, when our check came the appetizer discount was no where to be found. Disappointed in the overall experience on this date.

Fois Gras was good but not great. Filet Mignon was ok [Fleming’s last week was far superior]. Lobster mash and service were also slightly less than I recall. But the wine, butter cake, and, the entertainment, were great. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better Monday spot in all of OC!

If you want a great meal with impeccable service , this is the place for you. The decor was beautiful but not overdone. Our meal was fantastic! No complaints there. The only thing I don’t like is that they dim the lights to the point that you need a flashlight to read the menu & you can’t see your food too well. Overall great experience!

It was my birthday. . I notified you in advance that I was gluten free. Waiter announced that there was no gluten free bread first thing. So much for accommodating me. It was loud and cold and ugly where we sat. In the back with a curtain between us and the bar and the piano player. It was drafty and ugly. For the prices you charge and with reservations and for a special occasion Wow. What a let down. Food was ok. Service was fine. Probably won’t be back and we’ve been many times for different occasions. There are better places.

Steak was DELICIOUS, the server however could not have been less interested in our table of two when a party of 8 were seated next to us. We asked for the specials and what he recommended, he said when he returned. Never happened. They brought the wrong appetizer, and we could not get a refill of waters from ANY of the many attendants. Veryvery disappointing experience... No food, no matter how flavorful is worth the feeling of being invisible.

Amazing experience! I am glad we gave Mastros in Costa Mesa a try. We had a horrible experience at the Newport Beach location a few years back and vowed to never return. We were told by several people that the Newport location is known for it’s poor service and we should try the Costa Mesa location. After some thought, we did and we are glad we did! Our servers were fabulous and our food and drinks were all amazing! Thanks for making my husband’s birthday special!

Mastro's Costa Mesa continues to fly the Mastro's flag well and proudly. It has just enough elegance to feel fancy but still be enjoyably accessible. You have to be ready for the prices, but the reward is both great meat and great seafood, with innovative group sides, such as marinated shishitos and perfectly crispy sweet potato fries. And of course their famous wine selection, made possible to deal with by extremely knowledgeable servers. Ours last night chose a Shaefer Stag's Leap One Point Five Cab that was exquisite. Almost makes me wish I still lived in SoCal.

The steaks were cooked perfectly!
I took my fiance here for our anniversary because we hardly ever get to do anything fancy. This was our first time at Mastros and we enjoyed the everything about it.

We started ordered Bone Marrow and Oysters for appetizers. The bone marrow was good - very rich and fatty. The east coast oysters were fresh and delicious!

Steaks were cooked perfectly and definitely worth it. I couldn't even finish mine (mainly because our eyes were bigger than our stomach). We ordered 2 sides to share and those were pretty hefty. We got the twice baked potato and the mac and cheese. The side dishes could easily be shared among 3 or 4 people.

I'll definitely come back again for a special occasion.

Best place ever...if you are looking for a high quality dining experience...go to the Costa Mesa location. Service is fantastic...food is incredible, customer centric care begins with the outstanding valet park staff. It does not get better than this. Ask to be seated in Mario's section...he was Best in Class! Thank you for an evening we will always remember...and we will come back soon!

Food was excellent but the waiters hovered over us waiting to clear our plates before we were finished with them. I felt a little rushed because of this. I like to chat while I have my bread and salad, sip my wine, etc. Felt like I needed a sign that said DONT TOUCH! Overall, we had a very nice dinner and the steak and scalloped potatoes were to die for.

I love Costa Mesa mastros better than crystal cove because it is more like a supper club than being crammed in. My two only complaints are why do you play music from the bar in the main dining area. I miss the mellow supper club music like before. It was loud and I found obnoxious to hear the gal in the bar singing happy birthday to each persons request. I also think for a steak house you should take the time to iron out the creases on your tablecloths. It’s very tacky to leave them all creased. I have pics to show as well if you’d like. I have high standards and if I’m paying $500 for my family meal I expect more ambiance. My steak was great. The waiter Jake was great so that’s a plus.
