It was a good place. My only negative was how they squeeze people into the small space around the bar area leaving you no choice but to socialize with the people on either side of you. Other than that our experience was great!

Our Server Nicole was So Classy and Amazing! She knew the Menu All the way through! Made Every Menu Choice Hard cause Everything sounded so Good after Her Excellent Descriptions! The Cognac Menu alone sets this restaurant apart! Dusse on Deck! The Managers reached out to us immediately to make sure our experience was stellar. My 42nd Birthday is Truly Memorable!

We’ve eaten in many steak houses and it was on par with others such as capital grill although the sound was not as loud towards the rear of the restaurant. We ate at the Plume the night before which was superior in comparison.

Very poor experience. Perhaps the worst restaurant experience ever. Service and management were astoundingly poor and failed to address an issue where drunk men made lewd, inappropriate and loud comments. . Manager was requested to address it but he was too weak to do the right thing and instead the server offered them more drinks, making them evenmore belligerent. Not a family environment. Definitely not the downstairs.

It’s a bit noisy - with a lot of people and loud music. When I reserved I specifically indicated that I would like a quiet table as it was a business meal. But then they gave us a table right beside the area where servers are going back and forth and putting dirty dishes and cutlery - which added to the noise. I believe a high end restaurant should take these reservation details seriously as people who dine there go there for a specific purpose.

Also, I think they should ease up on not letting people sit without the whole party being present. People who make advance reservations, with a part of their party already present, should be able to comfortably sit down and not have to squeeze into the bar area.

Impressed with the really cool Food-Presentations (uplighting and smoke- nice touch!). Food was delicious, ambiance was romantic. Hamyon and the other wait staff were extremely attentive and service was impeccable. Worth every penny! Will definitely be back!

Took my mother to Mastro’s for her first time. It was a late Christmas present. It was excellent as usual. Our waiters were Jennifer and Evan. They were attentive and fun. They made the dinner perfect. I have been to many different locations and all of them are top notch.

The service was excellent but the food was just ok. Not sure why but it seemed that the New York locations food was better for some reason. The price seemed to be extremely high compared to what we got and for the quality of the food. I would likely not attend this restaurant again as I don't feel that the quality if food matches the price.

The food and service were great. We were having a Birthday dinner celebration and everything was wonderful except for the check- in hostess at the front door. She was extremely rude to the entire dinner party. We were on time, all parties were present but she was rude, abrupt and extremely hostile. The restaurant manager noticed something was wrong, stepped in and proceeded to make our dining experience pleasurable. Other than the experience when we arrived, everything was outstanding!

This is one of my favorite steakhouses in the DC metropolitan area. I always have great service. The food is seasoned well. The servers are very knowledgeable and always are kind and attentive. I hope they keep up the good service.

The experience was normal - not much different than any other premium steakhouse. The server Michael was excellent. He really made the experience. They initially attempted to seat us downstairs - that would have been terrible the ambience downstairs was very grim.

This was my second time visiting this particular Mastro’s in the last seven months. My wife and I usually order the 22oz bone-in ribeye. Again they did not disappoint. Our waiter was excellent. This time we also tried the warm butter cake which was really good.

Management picks and chooses who to address about dress code. Service was good, food is very delicious. Live music so it is very loud in the bar area and the dining room.

The service was good however the food left a lot to be desired. The steak was perfectly cooked to medium well however it had no seasoning, just tasted like plain beef. The macaroni and cheese tasted like stouffers, the brussel sprouts were burned and the mushrooms tasted like the skillet. The butter cake could’ve easily been from a package at 7-11. The pecan pie was good but how could you mess that up...it’s literally like three ingredients. And the price was a whopping $236.50; add gratuity and valet parking and we spent almost $300. Ruth’s Chris is still my favorite...great food, great service, reasonable price (roughly $200 for similar items). In addition, it seems that the dress code is subjectively enforced. A man sitting at the next table was wearing jeans and a polo style shirt with bleach stains. One of the female staff members (I assume a bartender) was wearing tiny shorts and a faux leather bustier top. She looked like she should’ve been working in a night club. Finally, it’s realy dark in the restaurant which made it hard to read the menu and navigate my way to the restroom. I won’t be back to Mastro’s.
