Mastro’s is always a pleasurable experience, but this visit felt expensive for what was good-but-not-great food. I’m sure next time will be better. The ambiance and service is great.

Been going to Mastros since the beginning when they opened in North Scottsdale. Even through the buyout, the food and service were fantastic. True to the original vision minus the hard boiled eggs in the bar area.
Fast-forward, post pandemic, to Last night's experience. Mediocre at best. Food prices have escalated noticeably as expected but a 5 dollar charge for a bread basket is an insult. The food quality and taste were bland and average. Service was "tired" and was Food was late. Our waiter was definitely not supported. Im sure Mastros is having a hard time finding the correct amount of employees. Im also sure they are cutting costs by purchasing less quality foods yet charging higher prices. Im also hoping this is a one off for my favorite restaurant.

Ashley I believe was our server’s name. She was outstanding. I’ve been going to Ocean Club constantly. This was about the 4th time at your location. The low top tables in the lounge are great. Thanks, Steve

Going to Mastro's is supposed to be special, now they nickel and dime you for everything. They now charge you for bread, really, one of the priciest places around and they charge you for bread. Also, a $50 dollar corkage charge! That's over the top... sorry$25-30, OK but $50 bucks!

The good, great service from the staff as always, 5 Stars!

We continue to be disappointed by this location. While the dining room is what you would expect, we like to sit in the M Bar and compared to other locations, the ambiance lacks appeal.

Service and food is what you would expect from a Mastros but there is a noticeable difference between this M Bar and other M/O Bars. It’s a shame because this is the closest location to us and we love listening to live music while sipping a cocktail.

Order the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. Best shrimp cocktail anywhere. For dinner , of course the steaks. Any steak is great. You cannot go wrong. Martinis are also awesome there. You get 2 pours out of the martini shaker. For dessert the warm butter cake - I’m sure this has been mentioned like a million times on here by now. But we also had the chocolate sun cake which was amazing. Best thing about the night though was the impeccable service from our waiter John. He knocked it out of the ballpark. Lastly, yes the place is pricey. But worth the splurge once in a while.

I didn't think it was worth the cost. Steak was very good,although not cooked to perfection, which admittedly is hard to do, bordered on the rare instead of medium rare side . House salad seemed to lack the mentioned ingredients,and was brought without dressing. Had to ask for it. Lobster potatoes had nice chunks of lobster. Brought to table in a medium serving dish, and they were going to take away the dish after giving us several serving spoonfuls. C'mon guys, for 39 $ you are going to give us a few spoonfuls? Service pretty good though, other than those 2 things. Also gave us a nice slice of light cheesecake with some fruit for our celebration which was very good.

Service was great, got there hour before reservation and they still seated us! I love how the crab legs were cut in half. Lobster mashed potatoes were delicious. For the ladies I recommend the strawberry martini (ONE IS ENOUGH) loved it! Price was what I expected for a place like this! Overall I would go back!

We went for a birthday dinner for my wife and niece and a celebration for my nephew who was heading off to college to the East Coast. I live in Los Angeles, and we love going to the Mastros in Beverly Hills, but my nieces and nephews live in OC. We got seated a waited a good amount of time before being checked on. Waiter showed up and seemed pretty disinterested in attending to us, which set the tone for service. He got our drink order wrong, bringing two martinis instead of the one that my wife ordered. My steak was ordered medium and came out rare. I asked a server to throw it back on the grill, which is not unheard of at places like this. They even agreed that that was too raw, however, they actually brought the plate back to our table after passing it around from one server to the next, saying, we are going to take care of this in a bit. Our server came by eventually and picked it up without saying a word, and then brought it back completely burnt, way beyond well-done.

When dessert came, the butter cake (which is a big reason to come to Mastros) came out smaller than usual, with a little dollop of whipped cream and about 5 slices of strawberries. Compared to the Beverly Hills location, this was completely inadequate. Not only is the cake in BH bigger, but the whipped cream and strawberries comes in a separate gravy boat. When asked for more whipped cream and strawberries, server says nothing, and brings out more whipped cream. We needed to tell him AGAIN, “look, we will pay for it, but please bring out more strawberries.”

It’s unfortunate that my nieces and nephews had poor service. They do not go to fancy restaurants like this often, but my wife and I have, so it disappointed us to know that the experience could have been so much better. It took away from our joy to treat them to their first steakhouse experience. Next time, we will make the drive to Beverly Hills, because this experience just does not compare.

Wasn’t impressed with the food, the steak was ok, the house salad was gross and under seasoned, I wasn’t impressed with the lobster mashed potatoes and the butter cake was one big lump of sugar

I have been to Mastro's many times but this time it was subpar. Service was mediocre at best and food was fish was overcooked and steak was under cooked. Bad night, maybe. Disappointing for sure.
