Our reservations were for 645 I got there around 6:40 immediately got sat which was great. It was not one of their busiest evenings but I couldn’t figure out why the service was so poor. Our waiter Leonardo was great But after being seated it took 15 minutes to get our drinks and 30 minutes to get bread. I frequently go to the maestros in Newport and Beverly Hills it never takes this long to get bread. The food was great as always, our server was great,just the service was poor. I was celebrating my girlfriend‘s 27th birthday and we were pretty disappointed to say the least. I’m not the type to complain but for a reputable steakhouse I feel expectations of service should be met.

Terrific dinner, first class all the way. Our head waiter Patrick took really good care of us. The food was excellent, the service was attentive and efficient and our part of ten had a wonderful time. VERY expensive evening though. But you get what you pay for.

Service was bad. We walked in to the host and she did even bother to look up, feels more like she"s try to get us out of the hall way fast. Our waiter got me a wrong drink and when I told him about it, he argued that it was the right one. The floor manager and the person that was help cleaning our table on the other hand was really nice though.

P.S. the food was not as good as I remembered.

I have never sent back a steak at any restaurant I dined say but I couldn’t cut through the bone in rib-eye I ordered last Saturday. There seemed to be plenty of wait staff however after being seated for 10 minutes we had to flag down who we thought was our server to get water and again to order cocktails. This was a special occasion dinner and good money was spent but the atmosphere of chaos and the substandard food from such a well know steakhouse restaurant was disappointing to say the least.

The food changed and it is really bad. Everything other than the stack was cold. It felt everything was made in the morning and brought to the table. The croutons were soggy the dressing for salad way too much. The creamed spinach too salty and cold. The baked potato completely cold. I thought the butter needs to be able to melt. The tuna was so cold it was impossible to enjoy. I am sad to say after coming to mastro’s for over ten years I have to say goodbye to this place.

Our waitress was great but one of the other waitresses taking care of a large party complained about other staff and the lightening. It was a bit odd to hear all of that throughout our meal. Seems like that particular waitress should have addressed their concerns with management after hours.

Prime bone in rib eye was not what I call prime quality. No marble in meat and was not tender. Definitely not worth the money

We were so excited to finally get out to some fine dining during this difficult time, and we were not disappointed! The service by VJ was impeccable. The food was delicious, and especially the filet and the new york strip were excellent. The Nueske bacon steak was incredible, delicious and tender. Unfortunately, that is the only non-seafood appetizer, a small disappointment. We loved the mambo salad, a nice twist on classic caesar. The sides were all delicious and generously portioned. Overall, a super treat for our anniversary!

Food and service is always top notch. This place has changed over the years. It’s not the place to go to for a quiet dinner for two anymore. Large parties, loud patrons drinking at the tables and being boisterous. Plus the bar scene has really grown and with the live music coming through the windows to to the dining room, there were times I couldn’t hear what my date was saying. We will be looking for a quieter place to dine next time. Especially when we are spending $200 plus gratuity.

The food here never disappoints. Steak was so tender and juicy with lots of flavor. Loved the cream corn and garlic mashed potatoes as well. Huge wine list and had a wonderful margarita in a martini glass that was delicious.
Service was excellent and don’t forget to get the butter cake for dessert.
Can’t wait to go back!

Everything was a 10++ except for the table we had. It was right next to the entrance hall so there were customers standing there for the entire meal, it was not good.

Pretty much my favorite steakhouse. A new seasonal addition, the cinnamon/almond butter cake. Might be even better than their original butter cake. Mmmm.

Filet mignon nicely cooked as ordered. I was looking forward to the lobster Mac and cheese; however, the recipe must have changed since I last ordered it. It was not as creamy and delicious as I remembered. The wait staff seemed to have gotten thrown off when my husband requested that the leftover food be boxed at the table (as we observed was done for all other guests) rather than taken to the kitchen. No one would put our food in the take-home boxes until we could flag someone down after 10 minutes. We were also surprised to see that we were charged for bread. Hmmm…seems that this restaurant may be “on a budget??”

Dinner at Mastro’s is a annual dining experience for our anniversary. Unfortunately this year was a horrible experience. The food and service was great, but where they sat us to eat was horrible. It was almost like sitting at the parking lot being served a five star meal. It ruined the entire dinner for us. It was NOT a Matros five star experience!

Everything else was five star expect the seating area.
Why did the hostess or host do this arrangement?!
It ruined the whole ambiance of being at Mastros.

We did not asked to be seated there too!
We informed them it was for our wedding anniversary!

We could of spent less money at another steakhouse that would of sat us in a better location! Very disappointed!

Definitely will not be spending that type of money to experience that again!!

Well maybe the Covid crisis is still reeking havoc with the restaurant industry. The only complaint was that the steaks (which is why we come here) were tough and had NO flavor. Not just mine but the other people who ordered steaks (Rib Eye) complained that they did not even season the steaks. New Chef ? But at these prices there should be no complaints. Service was exceptional as usual and the drinks were good. Need to step it up Mastros

$50 corkage and the steaks are not what they used to be. I prefer the food at Arc better. Better taste and value. Mastros is now way overrated.

I've always heard great things about Mastro's but never had been. Tried to get into the Newport location weeks in advance for a client dinner and client birthday but settled on Costa Mesa since it was available and close to our hotel.

I booked the reservation for a client dinner 3 weeks in advance so there was a bit of a buildup / expectation for all involved. Had to revise our party of 5 to a party of 6 a few hours prior and everyone was very accommodating which was great. Arrived at 7:30p and were seated right away. Restaurant was loud and buzzing which made it difficult to chat but was just fine.

Our server (David) was great, greeted us warmly, inquired about our visit and then proceed to bring us a cocktail menu and wine list. Upon David's return we all ordered a cocktail and some wine to breathe. We were all pretty hungry at the time, so we decided to forgo appetizers and order our dinners upon his return.

David returned with our cocktails and explained that he was leaving the martini shakers behind which was a great touch, explained the menu and we ordered. There were six of us so the guys all ordered individual meals, starters and several sides for the tables. The ladies decided to order starters and split the chef's cut 33oz Rib eye which David thought was a great option.

The night continued and we ordered a second bottle of wine and enjoyed our salads and starters and then it took a turn for the worse. When it was time for the entrees all of the guys received their dinners and the ladies received hot plates for their steaks - BUT it never came. When David returned, we asked what happened to the steak and he was clearly caught off guard that it hadn't arrived. He quickly went back to check and returned to tell us it was on the way. After several minutes we inquired again and rather than a return by David it was the Manager on Duty who came to inform us that they had forgotten the steak, but did we still want it. By now we were all but done with our meals
