Service was poor, order was messed up to the point our foursome barely ate together. Mgmt did give us a partial refund, but it was frustrating when paying $500 for what we wanted to be a nice birthday dinner. Very loud in the restaurant section, bar area was packed and was a pick-up scene. Not our thing.

It was very nice, the only problem that we had was the server not explaining some of the things he added cost. Truffle butter was$15 added to the steaks. The other couple we was with said he asked them if they wanted it, and they said yes, he didn’t even ask me. That was &15 pair steak, I would not have ordered that. The other couple wouldn’t have gotten it either if they knew it was $15. Also, the oysters was ridiculously high, and small! I know next time what to do.

Very loud, pick up bar inside a restaurant. The food was good but if you are looking for a good time visiting with friends do not come here. It was too loud to hear each other talk. We will probably not go back. Steak 48 dining room is much quieter and food is just as good.

We enjoyed sitting near the fountain on the extended patio area which is open to nice breezes, yet is fully covered and is a more private dining area. Excellent food and service. Very pleasant and attentive staff.

The food at Mastros was outstanding and our server Cody was even better. He explained the menu and how everything was prepared, which wine went with the meal we ordered and even the texture of the steaks we ordered. The managers were walking around and checking on all of their guests and making sure everything was too our liking, which it was, and answering any questions we had. I love this place and can't wait till my next visit. By the way order the butter cake, you will not regret it.

I’ve been to Mastros around the country on Sundays through Thursdays and it was always a nice, high-end, quiet dinning experience. So I thought this location would be a great place to take my mother for her birthday. We made the mistake of going on a Friday night. The experience was basically having dinner in a club. The music was so loud I couldn’t hear the person next to me speaking and there was nothing the management could do about it. When you are dropping $150/person this is just unacceptable. We learned that Thursdays and Saturdays are also like this, so be advised. The food and service was excellent, but there are many places in Houston one can go for this.

What a scene this place has. Very trendy, modern, dark and interesting for sure. The only problem was it was very difficult to have a normal conversation due to it being so loud in there. It's like no other steak house and worth the visit at least once. Food was excellent quality and prepared perfectly.

While we loved the food and attentive service, we were quite disappointed that Mastro’s was more of a bar scene than upscale dining. The doors to the beautiful patio were open, and all we could hear was the very loud band that was out there. There were televisions on over the bar—with sporting events—that added to the sports bar vibe rather than refined upscale dining. There is a sign in the door stating a dress code is strictly enforced, yet there were diners wearing jeans and T-shirts. Obviously, the dress code is not being enforced.

I truly loved my meal, as did my husband, and the wait staff was great. For the high prices, however, I truly expected more of a refined atmosphere. We would have enjoyed our evening more without the loud band and television. We will try it again before making a final decision about whether it is worth having great food in an unpleasant atmosphere.

I did pass my concerns on to the staff; it will be interesting to see if they are taken or not.

We have dined at all of the Landry's restaurants in the same area and this was our least favorite experience despite us having the highest expectations. The reservation that we made was 5 weeks in advance which was a little off putting as well. The restaurant is beautiful but extremely dark (the waiters even have flash lights so that they can show you the food when it is brought to the table which is ridiculous). The worst part by far was the noise level because we literally had to scream to each other and our waiter in order to be heard. We even mentioned it to our server at one point and he said, "Yeah, we all hate it too and we get tons of complaints but the owner really wants to convey a Las Vegas environment so it's supposed to be loud". Interesting concept but it makes no sense! The food was pretty good but honestly came out too fast. We shared 6 appetizers and I ordered them in rounds of 2... and our meal was complete in 38 minutes (we hadn't even finished our bottle of wine yet!). Afterwards we thought we would go check out the bar for a drink but there was barely walking space, no tables or seats available and the noise level was even higher... so we left. We will not be returning.

Very good service. Steaks were decent at best. Not very flavorful. Very overpriced. They also serve the steaks on a 400 degree plate so your steak keeps cooking once served.

Bad experience. We brought a bottle of wine, server opened it up and went to get glasses. Manager came back and said outside wine is not permitted. So why did they open the bottle? Food took a long time, server seemed disinterested, she was awful. Restaurant is extremely noisy, difficult to have a conversation. Food was excellent.

I have been to Mastros in Beverly Hills, LV, Malibu and now Houston. I will not return to Houston location.

Sushi looks/tastes store bought with thick rice. Quail was good, yellowtail sashimi was amazing, lobster mashed potatoes and crab cakes were good but I expect shell to not be in my food. You go here for the ambience and the service, not the food.

It was my first time to Mastro’s and so excited to treat my guests to an amazing experience. I’m so bummed it was not a great experience. One of my guests ordered a glass of wine. The person poured a small pour and then came back with a new bottle and was not going to offer a new glass. Then was put out when we asked for a new glass. So my guest had two half servings of wine. My guest felt she had done something wrong and upset the server. Then no one checked on us after the food was served. And another one of guests’ steak was overdone. Needless to say you expect too notch service and it fell flat. Although we had a fun evening the experience and food were just okay. Maybe my expectations were set too high.

The band that performed on Sunday, August 19, 2018 was OUTSTANDING. Apparently, two of the members are brothers. The music selections were accommodating to all audiences and their energy was lively. Mastro's should keep this band in their regular rotation. Also, the wait-staff was attentive to our requests. We were more than pleased with our dining experience and look forward to returning soon.

3rd time I have been there and this time was very disappointing. The music was turned up as loud as it would go even though we moved tables to get away from the band and ask a manager several times if they could turn it down a little bit. Nobody at the table could hear each other. One meal had to be sent back 2nd and third, average in mine was good. For those prices I expected more.
