My husband and I visited during Restaurant Week. The food was great and the service was outstanding. Seriously, the Mastro’s Margarita was the best I’d had in a while!

Did a Restutant week menu - had the filet (cooked to medium with pink center as ordered)
No sides included so had to order extra for the table - not so bad (about $25 for 2 sides) the grilled Brussels sprouts were excellent - scalloped potatoes just OK. For appetizer, I the Momo salad, was OK but not memorable. My companion had the baked onion soup. Unfortunately, she had recently had the onion soup at Le Diplomat, which outclassed this version. Had to use tel flashlights read menus and conversation was sometimes a bit of a strain (there was a 2 person “band” and 2 birthday celebrations in progress- don’t know if that’s typical (in terms of noise level)). I had been to the M&S Grill (former occupant of this space) many time. Mastro is definitely a step up

Food was amazing. We went for restaurant week and really enjoyed the food. BUT overall service experience was not good. First of all, the greeters were terrible, we were seated on the upper level in the bar area, right next to the lobby/waiting area so there people standing at our table. We felt uncomfortable to sit there so we requested to sit downstairs. The greeter told us nothing was available downstairs, which was a HUGE lie, because when we eventually got seated downstairs, 2/3 of the tables were empty and they still weren't filled completely when we left. We had to speak to different greeters and the manager, they had different reasons for not sitting us downstairs, one said there were no seats before she even checked, one said because I wasn't dressed up enough - my friend was wearing business casual outfits. Well, this is not the reason obviously, because there were plenty of people wearing jeans, ugg boots, sweaters, and yes, t-shirts when we got downstairs. I understand they have sort of a policy, but they should have treated people fairly. I think they have a different team, because last year my friend and I were treated completely different - in a very nice way. I think they now ain't care about nothing.

I tried this establishment during restaurant week like mostly everyone there. I will be going back to try their wagyu beef. The filet mignon was tender and succulent. The butter cake was definitely a sinful treat!

Had lots of expectations for this restaurant. Unfortunately, at end of the day it’s about service and food and the they didn’t live up to my expectations. Food could’ve been corrected had service been more attentive. Some say you get what you pay for and restaurant week proves no reason to go if you’re gonna get crappy service because the restaurant Decides to participate. At their prices, not sure I’m willing to take the risk of it being different outside of Restaurant Week! I tried to not let this happen by ordering wine and sides which weren’t included in the pre fixe menu but the staff seems to be locked in on the fact that you can’t get a good deal and good service. Really disappointed, that the aspect of providing good service seems to be lost.

A dinner at Mastro's is a GREAT value when it's Restaurant Week; otherwise, not sure it would be worth the money. My experience began at the bar while waiting for my party to arrive. The bartender chose to be deep in conversation with the three men next to me and it took several minutes for him to even acknowledge my presence. To my surprise, when he did choose to acknowledge me, he flung a cocktail napkin in my direction. I can't imagine why he would think a 55+ year old woman would be at all satisfied with that treatment. Again, after several minutes of thinking he would surely look my way, I had to forcefully interrupt his conversation to share what type of wine I had selected. As mentioned, the Restaurant Week dinner is a terrific value and the reason why we chose the restaurant. Our server, Rice, was attentive and helped make our dinner feel special. We added the roasted bone marrow to our appetizers, and were sadly disappointed (the Blue Duck Tavern has a much better offering.) The Restaurant Week menu with its three core appetizers, the filet mignon and butter cake and cheesecake deserts were all delicious and perfectly prepared. Our party felt that, unless you're on a well-heeled expense account, there are better options for a lovely steakhouse dinner experience.

This was a return visit. Fantastic meal, as expected. The service is what really sets Mastro's apart. Ask to be seated in Alan's section. By far, one of the best servers in the city.

Extremely loud music for a Monday night. Couldn’t have a conversation at my fourtop table. Had to keep asking my client to repeat himself. Had to ask server to turn down music so we could converse.
King crab was ok. NY strip ordered medium came out raw. When my client his steak the rest of us were finished eating which made for awkward presence.
And the bar some how ran out of knob creek. How does that happen?

Overall ambience of Mastro’s is very nice. Great accommodations, decor, and service. Presentations of appetizers, entree’s and desserts with service was excellent. The only criticism here was the value for the price point. Nothing I ate really “wowed” me except their signature Butter Cake. I had to admit it was to die for. The sides were basic, the entree’s were decent , but the value of the food outside of the dessert wasn’t that memorable to me. I frequently cook, so when I go outside to eat @ A place like Mastro’s, I should be reasonably impressed. It was a great experience, but I probably won’t patronize again.

With tip for 4 people, our dinner tab with just a moderate bottle of wine, two drinks, steaks and splitting one dessert cost almost $700. Then there was a $12.00 charge for the valet parking. Would you go?

Mastros is a good restaurant -- the food, service and environment are all nice. The prices are exorbitant though. There are other choices with food that is just as good but with more reasonable prices in the vicinity.

My boyfriend and I had reservations for New Years night dinner at 9:15. We got there ontime and was seated almost immediately. Our server whose name was Rice was very accomodating and suggested great drinks, honestly he was the best server out of all the many times I had been at Mastro’s he always refilled our waters and drinks and came to check on us constantly. The food came out perfectly even though the kitchen closed early that night. The steak was perfect.

The food was amazing but the service could’ve been better. We waited 10 minutes before a server came to our table. We had a 11:15 reservation on New Years Eve. After midnight we had to rush and order drinks because the bar had last call. We also had to rush and order dessert because we were told the kitchen closes at midnight. For fine dining I expect to sit and enjoy the culinary experience not have to rush like I am in an Applebee’s. If the restaurant was not planning to be open for 3 hours after the last reservation they should not have taken the reservation for a holiday.

Excellent service! Our server was very knowledgeable on the drinks and food. The seafood was great but the people in my party that had steaks were not very happy with the outcome. They felt that it was bland for their liking and had to have additional sauces to alter the taste to be satisfying. The lobster Mac and cheese was a bit hard and not creamy enough.

We went to Mastro's for new years eve dinner and we did not have a good experience. It was very hot on the bottom level where they sat us to the point where we were sweating. They initially sat us by the kitchen door eventhough there were several open tables available when we arrived. However they did move us when requested to a different table but still on the very hot bottom level. In addition we did not receive good service. Our waiter was kind of rude and rushed us through dinner the whole night. He was not very accommodating at all. Overall, very disappointing experience for the amount of money we paid which was about $800 for 6 people.

Great location. Service was ok with exception that waiter wasn’t notified that they ran out of porterhouse. After 25 minutes he showed up to let us know “ chef just told me we are out of porterhouse”. Oh well, what you can do, it’s not end of the world.
Ordered sea bass. Looked good. Tasked ok. Lobster mashed potatoes are good. Not sure if worth $38 but ... also got sick the same night. Not good sick. Not good at all. Not sure I can contribute that to my dinner but being that I had only coffee and water all day (before dinner) ...

Went for a celebratory dinner and we were disappointed in the slow table service. It took them so long to get us our wine, we didn’t even have a fresh glass of wine by the time our main entree arrived. We had to wave down another server to request for wine service. One guest had asked for their unfinished steak to be boxed and they threw it away. When we inquired they made it sound as if it was our fault. Very very disappointed in the service, and it was a slow night. It’s not like it was crazy busy.
