Server and food were good as always. Music in bar was great. However, we were a party of five at table #425 . This table was right at the kitchen door, constant servers going by our table and bumping some of our party.

I know it was Valentine’s Day but the setup of the tables would not matter what day it was as tables are so close together,there is no chance of privacy.They ran out of some appetizers.

The food, wine, and service were exceptional. We were celebrating a 68th birthday and were very disappointed in the chocolate cake that was comped. This was the 6th conservative year of birthdays at Mastros always finished off with Butter Cake. We would have gladly paid the difference but were not offered such.

Wonderful place for special occasions -noise level a little loud due to live music in the bar . But, the music was good so we didn't mind. Servers , hostesses , wait staff are very attentive. Wine list was very good.

We had a wonderful time. Came in the celebrate our 10th anniversary. Since we walked in we were greeted and taken to our table right away. Once we sat our table they gave us a very nice hand written anniversary card. Server was great and answered all our questions and made sure we were well taken care of. Food was delicious and we even got a complimentary anniversary cake. Thank you for an awesome experience.

I wasn’t impressed with our waiter. He seemed to be in a hurry. I don’t think he was a good listener.
The lemon drop martini wasn’t as good as I remember at other locations.
I did enjoy the music. I didn’t appreciate the hostess in the bar telling me I could stand with my drink while I waited to be seated for dinner, when there was a room full of empty (reserved) tables. How rude! I want to thank the hostess at the check in counter who came back and offered us a seat at one of the many empty tables. We were only there for ten minutes (maybe less), and then we were seated in the dining room for dinner. Since it was only 5:45 PM, and our dinner reservation was for 6:00 PM, I am certain that our sitting for that short period of time did not interfere with the guests for whom the table was reserved.

My first time at a Mastro's steak house. I went with one other first timer and a couple who had been there before. I knew it was an upscale steak house chain, although I didn't know it had 17 locations. The drinks were very good . The food was good although one member of our party had the wrong size steak delivered to him and had to wait more than 20 minutes for the error to be rectified; the person who identified herself as the manager finally made it happen and the cost of that meal was comped. I lived and dined in Manhattan for many years and I've also eaten at steak places in Chicago, Italy, Japan, Argentina, Britain, etc. I am not afraid of high prices, but Mastro's has reimagined what high prices can be and they are richer than the lobster mash potatoes. The biggest surprise was the noise level which included patrons dancing in the bar room. Raucous, but fun.

The food here is amazing but not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet intimate dinner. Don’t get me wrong, the live music is good, but can make it difficult to carry on a conversation. The Lobster Bisque is the best that I have had from Coast to Coast. A definite Gem in the Desert.

The service here has declined each time I've been in and I won't come back. I ordered Foie Gras and asked for a sauterne or late harvest Riesling. The waiter barely understood English and came back with a red wine. When asked, he said they had no sweet white's by the glass. When he brought the desert menu, there were at least 4 very good pairing wines. This Mastros location isn't even close to the others I've frequently dined at and enjoy. Avoid it at all cost!

Beyond that, I put in a request for a birthday and they did nothing. That and the noise level was almost too much to hear each other.
