Went during Lunch for Vday. We had the special witch was the Waygu Tomi hawk steak with lobsters. We also had the Gorgonzola Mac and Brussels for our side dishes. Steak was out of this world. One of the best steaks I had in along time. The lobster was tender and full of flavor. The dishes wasn’t good at all. The Gorgonzola Mac n cheese was super dry and the Brussels sprouts were a little mushy. The service was great and the ambiance is nice. I guess I would recommend don’t order the sides during lunch 😞

Husbands birthday. Steak came out over cooked and processed the first time and second go around it came out bland. My husband was very dissatisfied however he didn’t want to get the manager involved. $200 plus dollars wasted. Definitely a first bad impression considering we were super excited about dinner this day for his birthday.

Horrible experience. We like the Mastros in New York so went expecting great service but received the opposite. Staff was rude and and up charged us by bringing a steak that we did not order. I would encourage Pete open table users to avoid this place at all costs!

It was my guests first visit to the restaurant. He had several special requests ... select rum, cut of meat, food allergies ... however he said it was one of the best experiences he has ever had eating in Washington DC. I was very pleased, and we sealed a deal!

I like this restaurant for the food, drinks, and live music.
My previous experiences were excellent.
This last visit was less than desirable because of the waitress. She lacked customer service, knowledge of menu, and ability to accept our feedback. The other employees and management however were responsive.
There was an opportunity to turn the situation in a more positive direction but she did not take advantage prior to us speaking with manager.
I still recommend this establishment and offer this solely as an example of how management was able to apply corrective action to our concerns.

Mastro's is one of our consistently favorite restaurants to visit when we travel to cities other than our own, and Mastro's Washington DC was absolutely one of our favorites! Michael, our waiter, made the dining experience excellent (from drink recommendations to dessert)! A special thank you to George, the restaurant manager, who went out of his way to visit us because we had some common links - and what a great conversation we had! All the best to you guys at Mastro's DC!!!! Hope to see you when we visit again!

Well. I asked for a quiet table in corner. They seated us in middle of dining room, even though hostess confirmed she had my request in my reservation. The bus boys don't seem to understand English and never followed our instructions, as if we never spoke. The waiter was pleasant, but seemed stretched thin, service was slow. The noise (loud music overhead, club music) was too loud. We asked 3 times to turn it down. Bad choice of music for a high end, formal dining experience. The bar is next to dining room. Had live music, also too loud, no separation for noise. The steak was excellent. The green beans were almost raw, sent those back twice. Scalloped potatoes were excellent as were the Brussel sprouts. The asparagus was barely cooked, same issue as green beans. The place was not crowded at all, so the noise issue wasn't with diners, it was the clubbing overhead music (thump, thump, thump, plus vocals). The room was so dark, we had to use our cell phones to read the menus and wine list. Prices here are high, so expected much more. We have always gone to Joe's or Prime Rib, but thought we would give it a try. We will stick with our regulars which are much more pleasing for a dinner like this. The Mastros in NY is not at all like this one. This one is more like a club with a dining room.

I have been to Mastro's previously and enjoyed it. However, I have 2 concerns regarding this visit: 1. It was restaurant week and I didn't receive the restaurant week menu until I specifically requested it. and 2. I am aware that 'sides' are generally a la carte. However, during Restaurant Week, there is generally a pre fixe set of offerings. If the sides were to remain a la carte, I believe that an establishment of the caliber of Mastro's should disclose that fact on the menu and/or their website. Otherwise, it was a great experience. The servers were attentive, the food was well-prepared and the atmosphere was very nice.

My wife and I spent lots of money over the past few years and all it took was one bad experience to lose us. Usually I’d give a second chance but not this time. Treat people with some respect, you’re supposed to be adults

Cons: I had reservations so I didn’t expect to be seated in the downstairs bar area. I found it to be noisy and distracting because this is where the waiters come to get drinks for their tables. I also didn’t feel like the waiter was attentive as I’m sure he had tables somewhere else in the restaurant.

Pros: It was restaurant week and they had really good options on the menu. The food was delicious and came out quickly.

This restaurant is expensive but the service, meal and ambiance is worth it. Their wine and cocktail list is extensive. We had the filet and ribeye and both were cooked to perfection. The sides we had were the Mac and Cheese, spinach and Brussels sprouts. All were delicious.

Came for RW. Food is awesome, though not blown out by it. Service is very poor. Our server (Asian guy) in the lower level dining area was very transactional, in a hurried manner and gave the check down in our table without asking if we need anything neither asking if we want something else. I used to work in a steak house and the standard should be higher than expected since people are paying above the average price. Was it because we were there for RW? 🤔🤦🏽‍♀️ Hostess was very nice though.
