My husband & I go to Mastro's for the great live music (we always sit in the lounge), the food & the great black cherry lemon drop martini's (they are the best). My husband does not drink martini's but he drinks them there. Sometimes we just take off and go there for late night drinks listen to the great duo singing & playing music in the lounge. The girl especially has a great voice. We have taken several friends, family and customers here for dinner & drinks. Mastro's is our go to place to eat and enjoy each others company. Everyone we take there loves the place. We go there for every occasion! We love it...

Our experience was rather disappointing. We have dined at Mastros on several occasions and love it. We made reservations of Saturday to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. We were placed in the bar, which seemed to defeat the purpose of a reservation. We wanted a romantic dinner but rather, we sat in the noisy bar.
Also, the server ID is both when we ordered alcohol. We are well over the age of 21, and we felt that the gesture was very condenseding, which continued to be the servers attitude towards us during our dinner.
It was a very disappointing dinner, to say the least.

It was my wife's birthday and we had a great time! Our server Dennis was great and very knowledgeable. The food was awesome as usual and my wife and I enjoyed the butter cake as we always do for dessert! They also added a chocolate cake on the house that we enjoyed as well! All in all it was a great night with great live music and we always recommend Mastros to our friends and family!

Awesome service and awesome food in a very attractive environment. Valet parking available and self parking which is validated for 3 hours is available also. Bring a few $$ for the bathroom attendants. They work hard. Seafood tower is exceptional Beware it is cost plus built up based on what you want to see on it, but the experience is worth it.

I can't say more good things about the service that night. The steak we ordered arrived quite rare even though we ordered it medium. When we notified the waitress, she apologized and offered to take the steak back. We declined because the guests we were dining with had already received their steaks so we ended up eating around the rarer parts. The manager came by very shortly after and offered his apology for the mistake as well and offered us dessert for the trouble. When the dessert arrived it was not one, not two, but THREE desserts. We were beyond thrilled at this generosity and action to make this right. We would like to thank the manager for not only providing the service expected of such an establishment, but for going above and beyond our expectations.

Drew our waiter was outstanding. We ordered the lamb and 8oz filet, lobster mashed potatoes and Mac n Cheese ! All were very tasty and plated nicely. The seafood tower was AMAZING !
Crab, shrimp, oysters.......all fresh and again presentation was perfection. The ONLY disappointment was NO BUTTER CAKE !! How could you possibly be out of the best item on the dessert menu at 9:55 PM on a Saturday night ?

We booked our dining at Mastros Costa Mesa as we done in the past their food is absolutely amazing, their drinks are just mix right service has always been great unfortunately I cant say the same about my last visit there I believe Tom was our waiter I don’t know if he is new to the food service but he was to far from friendly he was very short to his answers and he seen to push his suggestions as he wanted us to order that, been at Mastros several times we know the menu we know what we want and always have a few drinks before our meal before we even finish our first sidecar he was already trying to take the order, I ask for bread for the center table his replied was very odd tight and unfriendly (its on the way) I pretend not to annoyed me not to make a scene and ruin my friends dinner later he continued to offer the specials and suggestions but it was almost as if he was bother we did not order his suggestions I will go back to Mastros blindly their food and service has always been great but Ill make sure to request not to be seated at Toms station in Costa Mesa

The service and the food were fantastic. However, it was much nosier than I anticipated. The singers in the bar lounge were way too loud, and sang poorly. I understand the idea of entertainment while dining, but not only did they overdo Top 40, they did have to vocal range to support what they overdid.
Our server was brilliant, the food was absolutely delicious, but the loudness of the piano duet was unexpected, and disappointing. I definitely will not request to be seated in the bar. That was my mistake, not the mistake of MASTROS.

The food was outstanding as always. The service was impeccable and our waiter Drew was on top of everything. My wife and I were celebrating our 16th anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate. The management staff went way beyond what I expected they helped celebrate my anniversary with my wife and I by offering us a dessert and Carlos the manager made our night even more special so I'd like to give a special thank you to Carlos the manager and drew our server. With team members like that it's no wonder this restaurant is such a success. Thanks to the both of you for making our night memorable...

Great food and amazing flavors. If you're looking to have conversations with your dining party, would recommend asking to be seated in the dining areas rather than the bar, as the live music is quite loud and makes conversations difficult to hear. Usually Mastro's knocks it out of the park for any and all dishes, but this time the shrimp cocktail came out with the shell still on. I'm sure it's just a fluke but it was disappointing nonetheless.

We went there to Celebrate our Anniversary, the food and the service was great. The only complaint I had was we were seated next to a group of people who were so loud we couldn't hear our self speak. My expectations was wrong, I assumed a quite romantic place.

Masto's is all that was anticipated. Had only been there once before and wondered why it had been so long since returning! It has every thing a high end restaurant should have and more. (and the smokin' martini's are fabulous).

Terrible service. Waiter was rude and irragent. Forgot to bring champagne that was pre ordered as a birthday surprise for me. Did not put our wine on ice. Steaks were prepared wrong. Waiter argued with my sister whom is pragnate about her plate that was cold. Last time we ever go to the Costa Mesa location.

Always a great experience at Mastro's and this time did not let us down. Server was outstanding and everyone made the experience great. However, we did have to wait about 15 minutes even with the reservation, but it did not take away from the experience.

I took my wife for her birthday and had a great dinner. We love sitting in the bar area, the ambiance is great in there along with the music. We had a great server Esther! Steaks, Lamb and Butter Cake, you cannot beat it.

The Lobster Bisque was fantastic. Service was really slow and the steaks came out too rare. Medium came out very rare. Medium rare plus came out very rare. By the time the steaks came back, we were full by digesting our sides.

Went to celebrate a family members birthday. Our reservation was at 5:45pm. We were seated in an area by the front door near the patio. First it was so dark we had to use our phones to see the menu. Second they had the music blasting in this tiny room that had only about 10 tables. We had asked the waiter to turn the music down as we could not even hear ourselves without yelling to each other at our table. The music never was turned down. In fact it sounded like it was turned up. Flash forward 45 minutes later and finally a server you was bringing our appetizers to the table was like "wow it is loud back here". I asked the server can you please see if they can turn it down? She said she would speak to the manager. Finally the music was turned down. A manager came to the table to apologize. I proceeded to tell him I didn't know we were at a dance club for the past 45 minutes and wasn't happy and he just laughed. Our guests were appalled at his laugh and wanted to leave. I can't believe that we spent over $600+ to be laughed at by a manager and not even offered a discount or anything for our bad experience. Hopefully a higher up manager will read this and do something!

My advice...Arrive early and enjoy a drink at the bar where the pour is excellent. Pace yourself and prepare for Mastro's signature desert 'Warm Butter Cake'. With portion control in mind don't be shy to share a salad and steak. The lettuce wedge arrives table side with hot & smoky bacon fragrant and with creamy blue cheese dressing. The filet was superior, cooked medium rare as requested. While any restaurant may offer a filet there's a difference with Mastro's and it's all good. The simple baked potato is huge and a good item to divide. Be sure or include bacon as a topping! Dinner included a bottle of 2012 'Cherry Pie' Stanly Ranch, Carneros Pinot Noir. The wine had plenty of body with fruit that opens in the glass over the course of your meal. There was enough substance to stand up to a steak.
Warm butter cake! Yellow, rich cake delivered with vanilla ice cream and a good amount of whipped cream. Again... this is a desert that can be shared. The coffee, black with excellent aroma capped the dinner experience.
My wife & I have dined at several Mastro's and the consistency of high quality food and service brings us back.

My husband's chef's cut was overwhelmingly fatty, not so good. My filet had great tenderness and it was ok. We were recommended to get the mastro's crab mashed potatoes, and I was sadly not satisfied with them. They were too watery/creamy and not flavor full. I was surprised. The mastro's salad was ok. The asparagus were ok. My favorite was probably the twisted bread with salt, almost tasted like a pretzel and the chocolate cake. We probably wouldnt go back again. Sadly.

As usual, we almost had to roll out of the restaurant. Steaks and fish were cooked to perfection, the sides were delicious, and of course the butter cake was scrumptious (along with the birthday cakes and creme brulee)! Our waiter (wish I could remember his name), was fantastic! He was very attentive to our needs and had wonderful stories for us about Disneyland (our shared favorite place to visit). Celebrating our daughter's 18th birthday and our son's 16th birthday was perfect! Thank you!

The food was good. Well prepared and great presentation. The quality of the dishes are well worth the price. The only thing that disappointed, was the service. Usually the service is great, but not this time. My wife and I are on the younger side, so maybe that's why the server felt it was OK to give a lower caliber service. First the waiter took a long time to take our order. Then when I asked for another drink, he completely forgot and I saw him chit-chating with another table for quite some time. I never got that second drink.... Then he brought us the dessert menu and never came back to actually take our order. After 15 minutes of waiting I had to get his attention from across the room so he could bring the check. Overall the service was not what I expect out of this place. It's a shame that one person's presentation can lower the standards that this place works so hard to uphold.
