Mastro's Steakhouse - Palm Desert Ratings and Reviews
Waitress was great But two out of four ...
Waitress was great But two out of four steaks were cooked incorrectly. One person's order was completely incorrect (wrong cut of meat). Three of us were almost finished eating by the time the correction was made and the steak wasn't cooked as ordered. Very disappointed for the caliber of the restaurant. Have been to several other Mastro's but never had these issues.

Came back to Mastro's after having eaten here before in February 2016. The food was once again excellent. The Kobe Beef is very pricey and worth every penny. Seriously the finest steak I've ever eaten. Any time I am back in the area, I will be coming here for an outstanding dinner.

Palm Desert location is a bit different from other Mastro's I have visited. None are a quiet dining experience. Here they have a Very loud bar in the middle and dining rooms in the back and on the side. These draped rooms are not intimate or warm. More like a dining hall drowned with the band noise from the bar. Not easy to talk and be heard.
The service was superb. The food on point. I even got a call the next day to thank me for choosing Mastro's. I will be back because of the food and service but forever hoping they would fix the terrible layout and noise.

We dined at Mastros for the first time as a vacation fine dining spot recommended by our conceierge and golfing partners. The experience was as advertised, first class. The bar served great drinks with generous pours and the service was impeccable. Live music was provided by a very talented man and woman duo who seemed to know every song ever created. Moving into the dining room for dinner we still could hear the music but it was not so loud that we could not talk normally. The food was delicious and prompt. All in all an excellent experience.

Service was terrible. Extremely noisy for an intimate expensive dinner. Mastros should be a night club not a fine dinner establishment. Waiter didn't ask us for additional drinks until dinner was over. Bone in rib eye had no bone.
Never go back. Try LG's for an elegant steak dinner.

Food very good, service was good, maybe a little over the top.
We were there for the first time on a Thursday evening, the live band next door was so loud, you could not hear Anyone talk at the table, then the rest of the dining guests would be shouting at each other, which added to the volume. The poor waiter had to repeat himself on several occasions, we weren't sure what we were ordering.....
Great food, but the ambiance was not worth the hlgher level of price.
Would not be returning or recommending to my Canadian colleagues and friends

The noise level was to the extreme, we've been to this location several times but have never been in the dining area behind the bar. Will NOT ever return if we have to sit in this area again. Extremely loud music from the bar and some patrons even louder. Not a fine dining experience. Good food, our server was amazing but the noise level a deal breaker.

Mastro's is one of our favorite restaurants.
The food is consistently outstanding every time we dine there.
The steaks are the best of any steakhouse anywhere.
The service is the best always. The servers are all very attentive
throughout the entire meal.
The ambiance is comfortable, albeit a little noisy at times.
But still comfortable.
We return often to Mastro's wherever located.

Service was excellent. I was somewhat disappointed though, as we were seated at a table for 2. I felt very cramped. The only place to put our menus was on top of our plates. I've been to other high end steak restaurants ....Mastros would not be my first choice!

from the time we walked in the door: hostess asked if we had a special occasion. we said no.
WE get seated and wait for our waitress. her first comment is (I understand we are celebrating a birthday!!!!) no we are not.... we waited and waited and waited for our bread and drinks to arrive .
the two people who arrived AFTER US already had their drinks and bread.... we had to try and flag someone down to get ours. my husband ordered a martini.it was poured and the left over sat for a while and then the waiter poured the remainder watered down martini.
I ordered shrimp cocktail. the waitress offerd to get us four shrimp to share , never mentioned that it was $8.00 for one more shrimp??? our waitress was all smiles but never seemed to follow through on anything. our bill turned out to be with tip. $275.00.
even though the food was excellent , the service was not. two drinks, one shrimp cocktail, one Caesar salad, steak and a lobster dinner.
I booked this reservation through Red Table, only to get home and have an email stating we did not keep our reservation at Mastro's?????. needless to say , ot a very good experience for the price... So disappointed.....
Wow....last experience in Beverly Hills ...
Wow....last experience in Beverly Hills was not the best for us but we decided to give Mastros another try. Looking back the server made all the difference. The server in Beverly Hills had no personality and quite frankly an attitude on top of providing subpar service. In Palm Desert everything changed. Our server was attentive, polite, and competent. Food was outstanding. Highly recommend you send our Beverly Hills server to Palm Desert location for some training.

We had 7:00 reservations arriving a few minutes early and seated.
We chose the dining room over the club room for quietness. It was still quite loud.
We had to wait at least 20 minutes for our drinks, and much longer for our meal.
The waiter said that they were"SLAMMED IN THE BACK" so he brought us a shrimp cocktail.
More waiting. We did not get out until 10:00. I spoke with the Mgr. on my way out and let him know what a terrible experience this was. He should either become a night club or a fine dining restaurant. NOT BOTH! Won't be back

Mastro's is my favorite restaurant.
Whether I'm in Palm Springs or Chicago.
Always delicious!! The best steaks and accompaniments.
Such a fun place with the live music.
Master's hires the best wait staff and the atmosphere always vibrant.

We booked reservation online well in advance. Upon arrival, walk-in customers just ahead of us were asked if they were celebrating anything. They said they were celebrating a birthday and were seated at a prime, intimate table (without a reservation). With a reservation we were not asked about celebrating when in fact we were celebrating an anniversary. We were seated at a table for 4 in the middle of a loud room. When we asked, the hostess offered no other options. Food was fine and wait staff was good. Best part of the meal was the butter cake. Not sure it's worth the price.

Mastro's is a great special occasion restaurant, if you like steak. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is outstanding. But be sure to be prepared for an expensive meal. But for that special event - I was there for my birthday, its a great choice.

Shoestring fries had to be remade 3 times before being right. 22oz ribeye had no crust and was maybe 3/4 inch thick with a lot of gristle-like texture. Creamed spinach was more runny than creamy. Nothing close to their Beverly Hills, Malibu or Thousand Oaks locations.

The food (wedge, filet, fries, profiteroles) was excellent. The service is top-notch and what you'd expect for a quality restaurant. Unfortunately our request for seating in a quiet area was not granted but the manager made compensation -- another sign of a quality restaurant. Truly at the top of the list for Palm Desert restaurants.

We have always enjoyed all Mastro's restaurants and have been to this one several times. This one has always been a bit louder due to the lay out and the music / dj in the bar so it affects all dining rooms. This one is not good for large groups or dates - its only good if you don't really feel like socializing with your dining guests. IT IS EXTREMELY LOUD due to the pop music they play. Its more of a club type feel while eating our $1300 meal. It ruined the experience. I even booked the private room thinking it would lessen the noise....well its not fully closed and its by the bar where the music is. It was a bummer - having a large group for a celebration and we couldn't really enjoy each other company.

The food was decent for the price (summer prix fix menu with additional appetizer and sides ordered): the filet, beef carpaccio, tuna tartare, and the crab cake was delicious. However, this may be a personal preference, the sides, and the arugula salad on the carpaccio were quiet salty for our taste. The temperature inside the dining room really warranted a light jacket, even though the temperature outside was around 90F. The service was very attentive and not at all overwhelming. I really appreciate the fact that all the waiters/waitresses/busboys helped during our whole meal experience. They also packed up our dessert and leftover so neatly and came after us when we left our dessert behind, and we were able to enjoy them in our hotel. It was a very nice first time experience at a Mastro's Steakhouse. We also received a followup phone call from the hostess 2 days later thanking us for dining with them. A very nice gesture.
