Best quality dinner

This is one of the best dinners I've had. The meat is juicy and tasty, the smashed potatoes with lobster is especially good and the service is perfect. The only thing I don't like is the volume of the live music, too loud to have a normal conversation.

We prefer a great tasting steak and professional service with unnecessary frills, so we still prefer the steak and service in the other great steakhouse in town. But Mastro Steak House is a good place to go if you want to impress an easily-impressed date that you can afford the extra frills. Some of them are just frills. The steaks... More

I came to US and asked my friend to take me somewhere for a good steak and we went to Mastro's. Valet parking makes parking easy and quick, staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. And of course the steak. It's simply the best I've ever tried. I went for 12oz fillet medium rare plus and it melted. It was served... More

We had a business celebration here, and all 10 of us were delighted with everything from the elegantly set round table seating all of us in a circle allowing conversation with all, to the spectacular desserts, and everything in between. We were waited on in such a way as to make my guests feel very spoiled without being overbearing. Yes,... More

Four of us recently enjoyed dinner at Mastro's. The restaurant is deceptively large, and quite busy. Noise level is "energetic." My wife was hooked the second she saw bone marrow on the menu. For me, the Hamachi app was the starter. Steaks were perfectly cooked. Service was attentive, but not smothering. Yes it's pricey, as others have noted. Particularly the... More

Pretty much standard chophouse fare, and chophouse prices. There are better choices, even among the chains. Some may go for the modern take but it just didn't jibe with the traditional fare and presentation. A modest wine list for such an establishment

Great bar to start of with few drinks. Service is good and menu has a variety of choices. I have been two times so far. First time service and food was superb. Second time was a week ago and quality was average. Certainly not up to a level where they charge you $27 for one Chimay Blue beer... Try the... More

I always go to the Mastro in Beverly Hills, but this location is great as well. The steak is sizzling hot, tender, red, juicy, buttery, perfectly charred steak. I've been to plenty of steakhouses. No one cooks a steak like Mastro's. Salmon and pork chop are excellent. The sides are good as well. Lobster mac and cheese has chunky lobsters... More

If you love your steak this is the place to experience excellence. The atmosphere is awesome, romantic, and if you go on a night when the piano and sax music is live you are in for a real treat. The staff are top notch friendly and professional. I have been here several times and I keep returning every chance I... More

Loved this place. Went here with friends for a birthday. We had reservations but still had to wait but not too long. Although it was dim, it was also very loud. If I was coming for a romantic dinner, the lighting made it romantic but not the noise level. Our server and his helpers were terrific. Made some great recommendations... More
