Do not understand how you get seated 30 minutes after your reservation. For some reason this happens all the time at this restaurant. Not sure what the issue is here, but it happens all the time. This will probably be the last time we eat here during the holiday season.

the food was amazing but the noise level was ridiculous. I had to ask the server multiple times to repeat himself during the encounter. I don’t mind music but it needs to be played at a level that allows for conversation without yelling!

The steak was great but the fries cold and overcooked. Initially service was good when taking orders and very friendly but they were incredibly slow to clear table or ask if we wanted more drinks.
Over all the meal was good but incredibly over priced for what we got

It was amazing, we got there a bit early for our reso. But they still seated us right away. The music was live and amazing. I’m currently pregnant but wanted to have a fun drink to celebrate and they made a delicious mock tail for me. They were so accommodating. I also have a gluten allergy and they were able to work around that. Overall this was just a delightful experience. We hope to go back every time we are in the city.

We had a great experience here. My sister-in-law and her husband needed to catch the flight after the dinner and we asked for a super fast service. It was super fast and at the same time we had enough time to enjoy the food. Every dish was cooked to perfection and every person who served us was super nice. New York has plenty of steak houses. Mastro’s is definitely one of the top ones. We will definitely come back here.

Amazing food and great ambiance, perfect for a date night. Overall a perfect night. The steaks were on point and hit all the right spots :) and of course the infamous butter cake was cherry on top. I have been to the location in DC and Ft Lauderdale, this one has to top them! Thank you for such an incredible night!

Food and Service are excellent. All in our party enjoyed our choices - from appetizers to dessert. The tuna tartare is great, among the best concepts I've had when ordering tuna tartare. The tomahawk steak and chateaubriand melt in your mouth. Our only dissatisfaction came from the ambiance. The music was loud, the restaurant too dark. A big open room like the Mastro's in NY needs some sort of baffling on the ceiling to absorb the noise. The Mastro's in Phoenix has smaller dining areas and is not as noisy or dark. In NY we needed flashlights to read the menus. It wasn't just us - I noticed other tables doing the same. Other than the dark and too loud, it's a fantastic place and well worth the price.

Mastros is a fav of ours. This is how we celebrated Thanksgiving this year. Third year as this is a new tradition for our family.
We love the venue and the music was wonderful ! Food is consistently delicious. No one and I mean no one offers Shrimp Cocktail like Mastro’s. They are cold, firm and sweet... the best !
We had 2 Porterhouse Steaks that we’re cooked to perfection. A favorite is the Gorgonzola Mac n Cheese... pretzel bread too.
They do a great job! Fantastic Dining experiences time after time!

I’ve dined at this location several times, but after my last dining experience I don’t think I’ll be back. Server had a total of 5 tables and was extremely slow. Waited about 20 mins to receive menus and water. Waited about another 20 mins to order food. Once the entrees arrived we had been sitting for approximately an hour. I asked for a medium rare steak with a lobster tail. I received a very well done steak and an over cooked lobster tail. The asparagus was under cooked - garlic mash was really regular mash - Mac and cheese was lackluster. Overall the experience was not what I expected, nor was it how I wanted to spend my Thanksgiving! Thumbs down

I say no but in fairness to the restaurant I didn’t address my concerns at the time which in hindsight I should have. The service was ok, we were seated behind a pillar so not the most visible. We both ordered filet mignon which was delicious. We ordered fries, Brussel sprouts and sautéed broccoli as sides. All of them were WAY too salty. I’m sure if we had said something they would have done something about it but we didn’t realize it until we were halfway through and wouldn’t have wanted it replaced regardless. It’s not a classic steakhouse experience but not a bad one either. I normally do speak up when I have issues but for whatever reason didn’t this time and as a result had a $300 dinner that ended up being just “ok”. I’ve been to Mastro’s in Houston and have had a much better experience.

The food and experience was just ok for the prices paid. Steak was overcooked. We were pouring our own water at times. It certainly wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either. We dined before live music started and the music playing didn’t match what should have been a more upscale experience.

We have dined at the Vegas and CA properties many times and have always had an amazing experience. We flew in from LA to celebrate my daughter’s 20th birthday. She had never been. She wanted to stay in her neighborhood (NYU) but we convinced her that Mastro’s is world class. However we did not have that experience. We were seated by the door adjacent to the kitchen, probably because we had our nine year old son with us. The table was horrible. The door opening and closing was a massive distraction and the staff asked my son and wife to move their chairs in multiple times, so they wouldn’t be in the way. We ordered the seafood tower, the triple decker version with lobsters. However, they brought out “a” tower and as we were going to dig in - they explained they gave us the wrong tower and removed it with no explanation... until 5 mins later another tower came out. We received one “kit” of horse radish and ketchup. This was not enough for five people, so we asked for a second horse radish and ketchup - multiple times - and we never got it. The pianist and guitarist/vocals were great, but way too loud. We couldn’t hear each other the entire night. We found ourselves having to yell. Not an optimal setting to celebrate a birthday. My wife’s filet was one of the worst cuts we’ve ever seen and we had to send it back. Full of fat. The waiters refilled our sparkling water glasses with tap twice. Our baked potatoes were cold. The list goes on. Honestly, I never provide bad or good feedback. However, The experience was that bad.

Way too noisy. Uneven service. Meat came just on a plate, no presentation so to speak. Potato dropped onto plates five minutes later. Asked for our asparagus. Had to ask three times for more butter, finally came and potatoes were cold. Too much money for mediocre experience.

Had an incredible time at Mastro's. I brought clients who have never visited before and they fell in love with the restaurant. Ronnie was an amazing waiter and my biggest regret is not telling the manager so on the way out. Will be coming back soon (literally booked another dinner for a few days later).

Two of diners' steaks came out far too rare (one was ordered medium-rare, the other, medium), though our server was prompt in checking in with us and appropriately and politely addressed the issue. The food and the wine were, nonetheless, exceptionally good.

The noise level during our dining experience, however, was astounding; booming. While I appreciate a high-ceiling, and hard surfaces magnify sound levels, the ambient noise level on the main floor, inclusive of the duo performing, made dinner conversation extraordinarily difficult. It was only possible to have a dialogue, without using a highly elevated voice, with the persons with whom you were immediately adjacent. This was an unpleasant after a long day of work and travel, especially given our desire to have an upbeat though reasonably relaxing dinner and conversation.

Having dined at Mastro's numerously we certainly weren't expecting a monastic evening, however, the volume on this visit was but one notch below a rave.
