Mastro's Steakhouse - Palm Desert Ratings and Reviews

As is its reputation, the food and service were outstanding. However, the noise level was just a bit more than I expected. And we were sitting in the back room. If you want a place where you do not have to speak loudly at your table, this place is not suitable.
As mentioned above, the service by Daniel and his other 2 partners was simply outstanding.

Great food. Had a "band" (really a singer with music track and a guitarist). Food was great. Service by Cisco was fabulous. Good night.
We had Fanny Bay oysters for appetizer. They were fresh and fantastic. I had the bone-in Filet. My daughter had the 8 oz Filet. Both were cooked perfectly. Sides were good too.
Highly recommend it.

For how expensive this restaurant is, it should have been an "experience" dining here.
The steak I ordered was $70, and I have had better steak at OutBack.
The service was about as average as any chain restaurant. It was by no means bad, but it certainly was not special.
$250 for 2-people should mean a memorable dining experience, not a regretful one. Based on the meal + service, the bill should have been around $70.

Over an hour for appetizers. Food undercooked . Very noisy - could not hear across the table. Bus staff stacked up and clear away our dessert plates before we were half was done. The waitress did replenish the desserts for which we were appreciative. In no hurry to go back!

Mastro's has dropped a notch. Why?
This is visit number two where I felt the experience didn't match the price. The food and service is great, but the experience has to be there, too. Our Valentine's Dinner felt like we were crammed in due to the amount of tables they squeezed into the dining area. Any intimate talk was gone as we could all easily hear each table's conversations that night due to the closeness. I figured they tried to meet the demand of the night not realizing that there has to be a touch of romance that night and this strategy of maximizing floor space with tables didn't help that part of the night at all. Still, I gave them another shot.
This recent dinner we were given a small table for two that gave the impression of us being too far apart. I would have expected more intimacy, and had there been room I would have swung my chair around to be closer to my date and not across from them where conversation had to be louder to be heard.
I don't believe my standards are unfair. Yet, there has to be some give here if you're going to the be the highest priced steakhouse in the valley and the romance aspect of dinner is gone.

My husband and I were looking for a fine dining restaurant on a recent stay in La Quinta and found Mastro's. We live in Orange County and occasionally visit the Mastro's in Costa Mesa.
When we arrived for our reservation, the concierge was accommodating and friendly and we were seated immediately.
The service was excellent as usual. I, unfortunately, cannot remember our servers names and I apologize for that. The food, as always, was superb. We ordered to share the Kansas City New York. He ordered the steamed spinach and I ordered the Beefsteak Tomatoes with onions and added bleu cheese dressing with extra crumbles. While waiting for our dinner to be prepared, we enjoyed a nice bottle of Stag's Leap Merlot. Our dinner arrived after just a short while. While I received the side I ordered, Stephen received steamed asparagus. Our server apologized profusely and offered to replace it immediately. We decided that asparagus was fine and we both enjoyed it. If anything went wrong, that was it. We didn't mind in the least.
After dinner, we enjoyed a delicious Molten Lave Cake with cappuccino. We went home almost unable to move we were so full but both of us were smiling.

Server did not offer bread upon our arrival. We had to ask for it. Rub on filet steak was far too salty. Rub on other steak was fine. Consistency is the issue here. Server brought check without asking if we wanted coffee or desert Her excuse when we asked was " we looked like we were ready to leave". I would say you never assume what a customer is going to do. This restaurant was recommended but we have been to far better in the area.

We were disappointed, there were only 2 tables seated in our room and the hosts seated them RIGHT next to us. That is nuts.
As well, one of us ordered the crab appetizer at 6:00 PM and we were told you ran out. What?
We were there last Tuesday and then this past Thursday. What a difference experience a week makes.

We enjoyed a great evening for our Anniversary dinner. Service was outstanding and the food was great. There was a large party in the room next door, however it was no bother except for the occasional flash from the photographer.

Excellent food and service. Only downfall was they were out of the Oystets Rockefeller. The signature dessert, Butter Cake was to die for. Their Lobster sushi roll was outstanding.
I would recommend Mastro's for any special event, but be ready to drop $300-$400 for a nice dinner for a two and a mid price bottle of wine.

This was our anniversary. My wife ordered a filet well done with no pink. Those were her words to the server "no pink". After 40 minutes our food was delivered. We didn't expect a quicker turn around since her steak was well done. My wife cut open the steak and it was not well done, but medium rare. The outside of the steak was burned. I know the chef threw the steak on at the last minute and thought he would slip this buy her. To be honest, Outback can cook a better steak. There is absolutely no excuse for what the server presented her.
Also, the singing in the bar makes it to mousey in the dining room.

This is probably the Best steak house!!! Yes, better than our next favorite Ruth's Chris! I can't believe we didn't know about it sooner. We come over at least 4-5 times a year. This will be a must every time we come. We had Bret and we had the best service! His suggestions we so good! The manager is very attentive. He came up to our table a couple of times just to check in. We will be back for sure!

There is no better place in the desert that is better than Mastro's for a special occasion and a great meal. We celebrated our 50th anniversary and my son and daughter in law's first at Mastro's on July 4th and returned for another special dinner on our last night in the desert on this trip. The bone-in filets are always prepared perfectly and accompanied by the best Bernaise sauce ever. Starting the meal with their sublime shrimp cocktail is a must--the shrimp are huge but tender and the atomic horseradish in the cocktail sauce is superb. I'm partial to the profiteroles for desert but at that point barely have room for one and my son and his wife always want the absolutely fantastic butter cake. Some of Mastro's regular exceptional wait staff understandably were spending the Fourth of July with friends and family but we discovered another extraordinary waiter on our last visit--Brett. He has a knack for making a memorable meal even better!

If you would like to have a conversation with your dinner companions this is not the place. The bar scene is great but the music and noise carries to the dining room which in turn makes those that have had a few cocktails increase their volume. Our Server and the staff were amazing. Dessert was excellent.

Mastro's always has delicious food and impeccable service . The only disappointment was I took my husband there for his birthday and they charged us for the birthday, we didn't ask for . I. Top of it we ordered the prefix summer menu which included dessert . Just a bit tacky.

For a restaurant that professes to be a "special occasion, classy" restaurant, they do a lot to diminish that effect with three HD tvs blasting sports from three sides of the bar and and an electronic band that permeates the restaurant. The food was surpassed only by the attentive service, but the effort was ruined by the noise.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and the dinning experience was outstanding. Thank you Mastro's for the exceptional service and quality of food for a reasonable price. We plan on returning in the future and highly recommending it to our friends.

My waiter was Marco he gave excellent service n made my special nite run smooth. The seafood tower was amazing as with the sea bass. The dry ice El Paseo margarita was out of this world tasty👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾. The nite ended with a beautiful plated dessert butter cream cake my waiter even wrote happy birthday on it and topped it with a candle very nice touch😎 I would definitely come back for future special dates not bad at all for the 250$ I spend including tip which he deserved 😊😊😊😊😊😊

The only problem that I had, was I didn't order cream of spinach, it was dished out before I could tell the waiter that it was not ordered. Someone in our party was brought another beer that he didn't order. I was charged for both items. FYI my bill was $1000.00.
