Mastro's Steakhouse - Costa Mesa Ratings and Reviews

This was our first time for dinner and I wish we had not waited so long. This place not disappoint one bit. David, our server, was on the spot form the moment we sat down and did not let up. He knew we had a time crunch due to our Tony Bennett concert but he got us out in plenty of time. His recommendations were welcome and proved to be right on. Wine list was tremendous and varied with something for everyone and they prove when you walk up the stairs surrounded by walls of bottles. The New York Pepper steak was large enough to split and I am glad we did as the sides were meals in themselves.

First time at Mastro's . We are currently steakhouse hopping and while their lobster mashed potatoes was amazing, wife didnt like the gorgonzola mac n cheese but she loves mac n cheese so maybe the gorgonzola didnt work for her but it was still good. But our server Derick was great and def helped with my picking. Both steaks were excellent (rib eye and porterhouse). Peppercorn sauce was the BEST!! Great choices of dessert and will be back!!

Food is great, service was fantastic. Getting seated where you prefer might be a little harder. For us this is one of the more expensive places to eat but the food is excellent, tried many items on the menu and have enjoyed all of them.

The food and handcrafted drinks are absolutely AMAZING!!! The service is also pretty great! We love coming here for special occasions since the price is rather on the higher end, but you definitely get what you pay for! Would highly recommend this place to people!

I got there about 20 minutes before my reservation time and they still seated me. They immediately said Happy Anniversary and it seemed like the entire staff knew because one kept saying Happy Anniversary after the other (I may be exaggerating a little bit). The waiter was super nice and well versed. There were a lot more items than what was on the menu. We started with the complimentary bread basket and every single slice was delicious. It was a good variety. I got the 8oz filet mignon, my boyfriend got the new york strip, and we shared a side of garlic mashed potatoes. My filet mignon was SO TENDER. It was the perfect medium. I've never had steak like that before. I've also tried my boyfriend's steak and that was delicious as well. The garlic mashed potatoes was way too much for the both of us, but it was smooth and creamy. They also gave us a complimentary slice of chocolate cake for our anniversary, but unfortunately that was dry. Only real complaints I have about this place is the mandatory valet parking and the dark lighting (I saw two tables using a flashlight to read their menus). I'll definitely be coming back for a special occasion!

usually i love Mastro's Steakhouse, but i'm not sure if recently the chefs have changed or if the quality has changed, but it just wasn't as good this time. i've been to mastro's quite a few times and it has always been good to great, but this time was very underwhelming.
i went for my mother's birthday as i was hoping it would be another great meal, but unfortunately it fell short this time. the scalloped potatoes were flavorless and completely overpowered by a sour cheese note. the mac and cheese was also very bland. the sauteed mushrooms were great! but the steaks and the seafood tower all fell short of what i usually expect.
i hope this was a rare miss and given the track record, i'm inclined to believe it is, but after my most recent experience, i may have to give mastro's a little break before returning.

outstanding food and service. best swordfish and twice baked potato i have ever had. the complimentary chocolate pudding birthday dessert was both delicious and appreciated. can't wait to go back for another birthday celebration.

Hands down, THE best steakhouse in town! The bone-in ribeye was masterfully prepared to a perfect medium rare. I would also highly recommend the sauteed wild mushrooms and creamed spinach for your side dishes. You can't go wrong with the lobster mash potatoes either. Cocktails? Try the lemon drop to start - awesome. Mastro's is not for the "bargain hunter" diner, but it is an experience worth the $$$$.

I have been to four different Mastro's sites and am never disappointed. The bone-in filet is incredible. I have tried every side dish and all are fantastic. The other great thing is that the wines are reasonably priced. I would highly recommend for any occasion!!

Excellent food, possibly the best steaks ever!!! However, we were celebrating an intimate birthday dinner for two in the main dining room on a recent Thursday evening and just on the other slide of the wall, they started some awful karaoke! Ruined the hi-end ambiance for sure due to the wannabe singers and digital cheap processed karaoke music. Since I dropped nearly $300 on an otherwise nice dinner for two, it would have been courteous to have been told that was on the evening's schedule when making the reservation. I likely would have gone elsewhere. I guess we're in LA after all, but come on, not everyone outside the bar should have to be exposed to that noise in a hi-end restaurant. A little acoustical separation between bar and dining area please, at a minimum. At least we couldn't see the "performers" and it did not ruin the taste of the steaks. I'll be back, but please save the Karaoke for the local bars that cater to those who seek it.

we love Mastro's, its our favorite place. this time for whatever reason the food was not good and the service was less than desirable. for the money and amount of times i visit this restaurant, i expect much more than i received.
Honestly my experience there and this is ...
Honestly my experience there and this is the second time that I've eaten there, was not very positive. I don't think I would ever go back. It was especially offensive being told that we could only have one glass of water due to the water shortage I thought our waitress was edgy and condescending once we did not order bottled water This Barriga's was horrible and Woody and thick
Just my two cents

Always a great experience. We had dinner pre show at the Segrestrom center and came back for warm butter cake and latte's. We had dinner in the dinning room but choose the bar for our desert. I love the bar at Mastro's because it always has live music and the proformers are great.

The food is excellent, the ambiance is lovely, the service is impeccable. Even sitting right next to another table we felt we had complete privacy. A couple of things could be improved, such as updating the menus to the new tablet form, and doing something about the noise level. Theres a din that makes it difficult to hear speech, and I have great hearing.

Service was ok. Food was passable. When I order a steak at $56.00 it should melt in my mouth. This one fell short. I had this experience that I can never get back. To make a lasting impression of a great dinning experience was what I am waiting for... unfortunately, I am not going to experience such a thing at Mastro's. And yes I have had plenty good dinning experiences at other restaurants. I also watched as another table with 4 was being serviced by 2 servers. Wine poured b/4 glasses were emptied. WOW! They definitely knew management.

We had a wonderful time. The Waitress was very helpful with her suggestions, pleasant and timely. We were going to the Theater and she made sure we were finished in time to go. It was nice to be able to leave our car at the Valet and walk over to the Show
