Mastro's Steakhouse - Palm Desert Ratings and Reviews
They were very accommodating when we wanted to sit at another table. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu, and was gracious enough to bring out more of their AMAZING pretzel roll.
The seafood tower was to die for. The filet and lobster combo was enough for two people to share. I can't say enough about their twice bake potato.
2nd visit to the Desert, but first visit to Mastro's after reading the reviews. The atmosphere was surreal-great decor, fabulous wine displays, and the food was reasonably priced for the delectable menu. My wife had the special prix fixe menu which include crab cake appetizer, cream corn, filet migon, and the famous butter cake with ice cream and whipped cream. I had the rack of lamb-2 large racks of 4 chips each-cooked to medium rare exactly.
we found the drinks and appetizers to be outstanding. However, the steaks were burned (not just charred) and one was overcooked as well. The "twice baked potato" was nothing more than a giant overcooked potato skin with cheese. The famous warm butter cake, was not warm and was disappointing.
Poor service, we had to pay $35 corkage for each bottle of wine and then poor most of it ourselves. The martini came and and specs in it so had to be remade, then they tried to charge us for 2 martinis. I ordered my steak medium rare and it came rare. They tell you this junk about what medium rare means, but all chefs know that medium rare is 135 degrees. I was probably generous giving them 3 starts.
We went to Mastro's while on vacation in Palm Springs. It was my first time at a Mastro's. We got to the restaurant early to get drinks at the bar before dinner. I had the best Mojito I have ever had! We were very pleased with the quality of food...our food was served piping hot....which is a rarity these days. Usually food is room temp by the time it gets to the table. The service at the bar and table was great. Mastro's delivers on great steaks and great service.
Our server and the front of the house staff were over the top excellent! Nice live music in the bar area that we could also hear and enjoy from the side dining room. They were having a summer set menu promotion and that was a very good value. The pork chop is a hidden secret - best we have ever had! I wasn't very impressed with the side dishes, especially the creamed corn. I was expecting something like Flemmings creamed corn and this wasn't even close; lacked flavor.
Great place!! We celebrated a birthday and the service was over the top .The food was delicious!!! The Steak was excellent and melted in my mouth along with the potatoes with lobster!! We sat in the bar and listened to music while eating dinner. Thank you for making my boyfriend birthday special!
As steak houses go, I'm sure that Mastro's is among the very best of its class. I like steak and cook it at home frequently. I buy prime beef and carve whole sides of rib eye into 24 oz. portions and freeze them with a vacuum pack food-saver. My cost is about $16/lb. for my efforts. I can't recall the last time I went out for steak -- and at high end steakhouse prices, I doubt I'll be doing it again for the foreseeable future.
The food and service was certainly excellent; I had a lobster bisque that must have had a half cup of heavy cream and large pieces of lobster. My wife had the French onion soup whose stock was a work of art. Our two steaks (the 12 oz. bone in fillet and the 24 oz. rib eye) were just north of $60 each. Yes, prime wet aged beef is expensive, but this was breathtaking. I'm still recovering from my wife's $20 Bombay martini.
We are members of a local wine club that allows us to bring our own wine without corkage to some 3 dozen restaurants in our area (Mastro's included), so our total bill with tax & tip was $240. You be the judge of whether that's a good value. For my money -- anything north of $200 on dinner for 2, I'll always choose more creative food that I don't cook at home.
This was the second year I celebrated my birthday at Mastro's. Service was fantastic. Servers all had smiles and made sure all our needs were met. Love the band also. Felt like not only celebrating birthday but received a free concert also.
Great job. Enjoyed and will be back.
Great food from pretzel rolls all the way to butter cake dessert.
Came for babes birthday dinner. We went all out and was completely worth every dollar. Kristi was our server and she was amazing. Really knew her stuff and made great suggestions. She made the experience that much better. Babe enjoyed his birthday and all the special treatment that night. Will be back in the future.
I really enjoyed our dinner, the service was great, the food was amazing, but I was there to celebrate my husbands dinner/anniversary, and was extremely disappointed when a party of 15-20 people sat right next to us, they were SO LOUD, it was so hard to enjoy the moment. I was disappointed that Mastros wouldn't take that kind of consideration. most people make reservations, maybe you should seat small parties away from BIG parties or small parties in a different t room from big parties. I hope to be back maybe next year with a different seating accommodation.
My husband and I came to dinner on a mini getaway. We forgot to bring dress clothes and they did not mind at all. They also did not treat us like children like a lot of restaurants do for young couples. It was a delicious meal with excellent service. Make sure you save room for dessert!
This was my 1st time eating here and it was excellent. I have always been a big Ruth's Chris fan and I have never been able to find a steakhouse that even compares, until Mastro's. From their Caesar salad, to the side dishes, to the steak and all the way to the creme brulee I had for desert was outstanding. Definitely not cheap, but worth every penny. I will be going back
Recently celebrated an anniversary at this location, and it seemed that everyone from the restaurant acknowledge that fact. The food was excellent, service was unquestionable, and the attention to detail that ALL staff members showed ALL diners was extraordinary.
Normally we have a great experience and meal here, but this dinner was far from it. Our table was for 7, we were sat at a beautifully clothed fold up round table that myself and my dinner mates kept hitting our knees on and knocking the table. TERRIBLE! The food wasn't it normal amazing meal. The appetizers were great, but the main steaks just didn't taste good at all. The server was really nice, but sucked. Forgot to put our salads in (he didn't charge us for them!) and was slow to check on us and bring drinks. I left unsatisfied and with a bruised knee. Our meal with tip was just under $1000.00, with a great bottle of wine. Wasn't worth it and I don't think we will be going back to this location. Sad! We've had many great memories there.
I have been coming here for years and this last dinner, my steak was the best I have ever had there. The seasoning and preparation was spot on and I was truly impressed. Hats off to Rebecca the GM, Marco another manager and the new Executive Chef Gene who I just met for making my buddy and I feel like honored guests. You will see me again soon.
Our special occasion being our anniversary was a consistent message and theme with their staff throughout the evening.
For example, the hostess greeted us for our special occasion prior to taking us to our table. Numerous other nice touches was performed such as a white envelope with our handwritten names on it waiting for us at the table that had a personally written congratulations note, complimentary desert with Anniversary written elegantly on the plate, etc.
An off night- my first time dining in the dining room.
Three ladies at Front desk did not seem very organized/or maybe they were training a newbie. (?)
Our waitress was not great in the attention to detail or service. ( I have high expectations for $$$$ places) Drinks arrived right away, yay. We were last to receive the promised bread basket (asked for it 3 times) waiting 20 mins..Manager came over and finally made it happen just as our meal arrived. Food was amazing and prepared perfect. My friends birthday celebration was a bust when they delivered the birthday dessert and candle with another persons name in the design-oops. A good laugh and seemed par for the night.
I will go back enjoy the live music and food in the bar nextime.
