Our server Bill was absolutely amazing! The rest of the service team was also excellent. The food was on point and delicious. I truly wish they didn't allow flash photography though, it happened several times and this isn't TGI Friday's. Other than that, Mastro's always delivers. Thank you.

We love Mastro's. We go frequently and take friends. The wait staff is stable but moves through different rooms. When we request a waiter he/she is on another assignment in the restaurant and cannot serve. Understandable, but all are great. As is the food. The side dishes are the best in the business.

The food was great, but even more overpriced than other restaurants in the category such as Fleming’s or Ruth Chris. We were there to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary, but to our surprise their was a private party right next to where we seated making a lot of noise that involved screaming a loud microphone and music and constant clapping. It was absurd how loud the environment was. I couldn’t understand why they thought they could seat tables next to this area. 2 large tables got up and left and one table asked for their meal comped. Not only was this event being loud, we were all seated in an area next to the bar that was turning into a night club in front of our eyes. I was extremely disappointed that a restaurant of this caliber and price would create such a hellish experience by trying to create multiples party’s while serving high class food. It was very unprofessional and poor decision making. I couldn’t even talk to my wife because it was so loud.

I will not be returning to this Mastro’s or any other ever again.

What a disappointment
We have been to Mastro’s on several occasions
This visit was so bad our table of ten and several other tables around us left without finishing our meal due to management issues
They cater to the night club crowd drunkiness and not to the fine dining experience that there prices should offer
Such a disappointment
They have lost us as usual patrons for sure

This meal was better than we expected. The seafood tower was worth the hype, the steak was top notch, and the service was personalized and attentive (but restrained). Would highly recommend this place.

Our server a young lady was exceptional!! Service from others was really good too. Her name was Caitlyn. It was my wife's birthday and she was very happy with the attention your people gave her. I've been a salesman with US Foods formally S.E Rykoff for 39 years, so I know what it takes to be successful. My experience at your Restaurant was wonderful. We will be back. Thank you.

As always a great meal ! But our waitress however was unacceptable and aggressive! She saw my friend was crying and still interrupted us to tell us the specials for the evening! I had to put my hand up for her to get a clue! Ms Guatemala Anne should be trained to listen.

Excellent steak house. "Value" is not something one considers when paying these sky high prices. Wines are very expensive, steaks are very expensive, but if you want a good steak then you have to pay for it. VERY NOISY !!!!!!!!! Even if you ask for a quiet room there is nothing quiet about this place. Get the Butter cake for dessert.

The restaurant has always been a favorite special occasion place for us. Sadly —for the first time — we ran into the Godzilla of waitresses. Extremely abrupt on imposing herself on our table and repeatedly forcibly interrupting our conversation. On serving our drinks our friend dining with us very nicely pointed out to the server that she was interrupting us. Without hesitation the server said she could get someone else to serve us, slammed down our friend’s drink and stormed off. More bemused than mad, we asked another server to see a manager. When that person came, she immediately said that the server had already talked to her and the conflict was that we were not interested in hearing about the specials. We told her that there had been no conversation with the server before she blew up and the manager kept defending the server. The manager did offer to comp an appetizer which we declined. We have owned a restaurant as well as our friend. We know about server’s “bad days” and how sometimes things just happen. However, the combination of a server and then a manager refusing to even pretend to own a problem with a customer is not acceptable, especially at a high priced fine dining restaurant. We won’t be back.

I have dined at several Mastro’s locations. I’ve been to the Palm Desert location a few times and I must say I was disappointed this time. Our meal did not live up to Mastro’s standards and I hope their quality and service is not suffering due to over-expansion. Our steak and fish had to be recooked because they weren’t cooked the way we had requested. My steak cut was bad and it was replaced. A small gesture of a discount as a token of apology wasn’t even extended. The management needs to be a lot more responsive to its core customers.

This was our 1st visit to Mastro's. The menu was extensive, and everything we tried was great. Not inexpensive, but everything was first rate. Excellent service, excellent presentation. The staff treats every guest like a VIP. The Beef Carpaccio had a great presentation and it was wonderful. Oysters were very good as well. We also had the Rib eye, the Salmon and Sea Bass. All excellent. The sides we tried were Asparagus, Gorgonzola Mac n Cheese and Garlic Mashed potatoes. Plenty for everyone to share, the waiters synchronize the serving of the sides with the arrival of your meal, and it was really fun to try everything. The wine list is extensive and they have something for everyone. The waiters don't rush you, and anticipate every need. I would recommend this for anyone, but don't go in trying to budget yourself. Just enjoy the top notch service - order what you like, enjoy the great food.
It is a little noisy, but not too much, and if that is going to bother you, I am sure there are some cozy corners where they can seat you. Really no complaints except I was too full for dessert. :)

Pleasant welcome, good professional service, trendy environment. Food, all steaks for our party, were done according to order. Meat very tender with good flavour. Sides of scalloped potatoes and mushrooms were tasty and ample for the three of us. One would class the meal as pricey but not out of line for a top level steak house. Deserts were really good.

We have purchased a home in Palm Desert and Mastro’s has welcomed us every time we go there. The food is over the top great and service wonderful. We live in LA and have frequented the Beverly Hills Mastro’s since it’s opening. So nice to have our favorite steak house again in Palm Desert. They are wonderful there!

It was our anniversary and they made us feel special from the moment we arrived. We ordered the rib eye chop, captains cut and it was fabulous. The sides were a little too salty and when I mentioned it, the server immediately too it off our check. The service was amazing. We will be back.

The rib eye and Tomahawk are my favorite. So much flavor. This time we tried the "wild mushrooms" and we were so glad we did. Passed on the cake, first time we did that, and will be the last time.

We were greeted at the door and acknowledged for our Anniversary, our reason for dinner. The waitress was very attentive, and the service was great. She explained what was on the menu, and what the specials were. She also explained that the side dishes were rather large so two people could easily share them. Our busser kept our water glasses full, and was keen to any of our needs. The food was excellent and satisfied our expectations. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a truly wonderful meal, or if you are celebrating any special occasion.

Mastro’s was good, but way overpriced. At that price point we should have had perfection, instead we both were served very undercooked steaks and over cooked asparagus. It was good to try and if we didn’t know how much everything was we would have said, hmm that was good food. But when you spend $30+ on shrimp cocktail (4 pieces) it’s a little much. My 6 oz. steak was $45, which can be ok but it should be the best you ever had, sadly it was not, I even added salt and pepper after it was recooked to get to Medium. I will say the Butter cake for dessert was incredible :). It was fun to try but I’d rather go to Ruth’s Chris, or the local high end steakhouse- LGs. Both have even better food and service, still pricey but not completely overboard .
