Great Restaurant

Great food, great service, a little noisy. This is close to Pelican Hill Resort which is my all time favorite place to stay.

This place is really great. Nice atmosphere with a classy touch of gourmet food and good piano music with a nice view of the ocean. I really love the Crabcakes! Our barteneder served the best dirty martinis I've ever had. Thanks guys!

Anyone who watches TV programs set in Orange County should not be surprised by the outcome when dining at this restaurant. All the factors are there: Valet parked Bentleys and Ferraris; model-wannabe-actress or socialite hostesses who stare right through you at the podium; cacophonous, almost deafening noise levels; ridiculously high prices. And yet the food - more than makes up... More

Fantastic servers and delicious food. We loved the beef carpaccio and the lobster tails. The atmosphere was great.

This place is full of the typical pretentious Orange County crowd who want to be seen. The Ocean Club is fine dining for people who know nothing about fine dining except to outdo someone sitting at the next table. The dining room is too loud for business conversation. Beautiful ocean view and the bar is a meat market. The butter... More

Rating based on price. You won't find a good deal here. Seafood ok, not excellent. Side dishes rather pathetic. Mushrooms on the mature, large and soggy side. Soft and unappealing, and old, underseasoned. Punishment to eat. Most of the dish goes back. Brussel sprouts very large and overly mature. Burnt, bitter, chewy. Most of them returned. Ahi ok. Shrimps ok.... More

I realize that this is Orange County, but Mastro's is over the top even for that rarefied air. We knew it was expensive, but dinner for two with only one drink and no dessert was $170. Forty dollar steak (6 ounces) plus $13 each for a salad and side of mac and cheese and spinach? Come on! Too dark to... More

Perfect food, service and ambiance make this restaurant fabulous. Expect to spend $100 plus per person but well worth the experience. Both steak and seafood were cooked perfectly with modifications as requested. Have a martini shaken at your table and expect a perfect evening.
