Our waiter Rice was exceptional. He made us his signature drink, Vodka Mango Martini, soo good. The recommendations he made were great too. My date was so pleased with his birthday cake too. We will totally be returning again.

It was my birthday, 2 members of my party had on jeans and so we couldn’t be seated in the dining area. We were literally sat by the door in the bar area. Very disappointing as I frequent Mastro’s quite often and it’s one of my favorite restaurants.

Too expensive vis a vis what is obtained. Bill was approximately 200 per persona without alcohol and steaks were okay. Would much rather go to another steakhouse.

I visited Mastro’s for a dinner with a very special friend on Thursday June 6th.
As usual, everything was outstanding.

As I waited for her at the bar, the bartender made a perfectly smooth gin and tonic, with the perfect amount of tonic.

As we were seated, were were lucky enough to have “Rice”, as our server again (although all the servers here are great).

He remembered us (we eat there entirely too much), and the outstanding evening began. We started off with those nice Lemon drop martinis (the martinis here are great, at you get the whole shaker, which the server refills your drink with until the shaker is empty; you get at least two full martinis out of that shaker)

Then the appetizers: Oysters Rockefeller and the crab stuffed mushrooms. Great amounts of crabmeat in each dish.

Then for the main meal, I had the larger filet, and she had the porterhouse (which is huge). We shared the large sides of loaded mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts .... but the kicker is this,

Rice is an expert on customizations, and he topped our steaks off with sautéed lobster and crabmeat, with a side of a special sauce that we are able to drizzle over it.

Just outstanding!!!

As soon as you walk into this place, it’s just an experience of luxury, awesome food and fantastic service.

Come in understanding that this place is not for the cheap or the thrifty, but it’s worth every penny!!!

Can’t wait to go back again!!!

Unfriendly hostess who refused to seat us even though most of us have arrived (4 out of a party of 6). Inexperienced waiter who wasn’t at the top of his job. Food presentation was lacking - meat arrived plainly with no garnish whatsoever. Add to it, the plate was so hot that it actually melted the table cloth and the padding, and got stuck to the table. Ambiance wise, it could use better lighting. For the money paid, I would expect a more refined experience.

Food and service were second to none. Was very difficult to have any kind of conversation over the noise. They sat me on a bench and had the table set up so I was sitting on the crack between two cushions. Really uncomfortable and not something I'd expect from a restaurant like this. Not a fan of places that have attendants in the restroom to hand you thinks like soap and toilet paper.

My husband I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary and had a great expereince. We were able to enjoy a quiet and intimate dinner and the wait staff were very attentive. Our waiter (Sam) was very personable and gave excellent recommendations for dinner. We also found the menu was more affordable and flexible than similarly rated steakhouses. Will defintiely be celebrating special occasions there in the future!

When they called to confirm my reservation I asked about the dress code, I was told business casual and shorts were acceptable. Once we arrived at the restaurant they refused to seat us in the dining room because I did not have a collared shirt. The shirt I was wearing by no means was a T-shirt. It was a golf shirt minus the collar. The problem is no one said anything about a collared shirt and that’s a problem. We had to sit in the bar (4 of us) at a high table and they had to push another table over because the plates of appetizers and entrees wouldn’t fit on the original table. After spending that kind of money it didn’t sit well. Outside of their militant dress code Shanna (our waitress) was outstanding and very attentive. I do travel to the DC area frequently and Mastro’s will be removed from my dining list.....

This was my first time at Mastro's, and it was one of the best dining experiences I have had yet! All the food we ordered was so good. I loved the scalloped potatoes and the filet.. my steak was cooked perfectly. We were told to try the Warm Butter Cake, it was probably one of the best desserts I have ever had!! Do yourself a favor and get it. It's huge so you can easily share it with multiple people. Will definitely come back next time I am in DC.

Our waiter Sam was great and super attentive. Top notch service. He definitely made our dining experience that much more enjoyable! :) Thank you!

I liked that you can customize the seafood tower and they pay particular attention to breaking shells for you so it's easy to eat. That being said, the king crab legs were a little fishy. The steaks we ordered were inconsistent (the bone-in Kansas City strip that my buddy got was awesome) but the Chefs cut ribeye I got was fatty and tough.

The service was great through out the night.

This place ranks up with some of the best food I’ve ever had. The staff were very attentive and made the experience very enjoyable. If you’re in DC and want a memorable meal this place is absolutely fantastic, and all of a 45 second walk from the metro.

My only MILD complaint is the music, I was seated in the lounge, which I was warned was a more lively area, but the music was a bit loud.

We had a great table toward the back of the main dining area but didn’t feel cramped. Service was very good with a wait staff team that unobtrusively observed our table and arrived to clear dishes, serve next courses and queue for dessert perfectly. The steaks were grilled exactly as we asked and were USDA prime so absolutely the best cuts. The sides were large and shareable. Really enjoyed the lobster potatoes. For dessert we had their signature butter cake. Absolutely fantastic. We’re going to have to diet for a week but this splurge was well worth it!

I am not surprised with this place. It is overpriced. The food was ok, not amazing neither special. I have tried better steakhouses in DC area with better ambiance and better food quality. The plates were very blend and the steaks were not that great. The only good was the service. The guys made our night.
