Very fancy restaurant with servers in tuxedos! They let our kids join us (even wearing flip flops). Wonderful ambiance, great service and best steaks and bottle of wine we've had in a long time!

We were able to sneak away from our family vacation for a date night, and are we glad we were able to get to Mastro's. The food is impeccable, the service is fantastic, and the girl singing in the lounge could have won American Idol or The Voice. We just had a ton of fun!

I ate here with two friends to celebrate a special occasion. The food was excellent, as was the wine. We had steaks, salmon and bone marrow for an appetizer, all of which were very nice. On the negative side, the food quality and service did not match the price.

One of my all time favorites in Southern California. Best steaks in the region! Love the whole scene, the people, the music, the staff and the ambiance. A must for me when I'm in the area.

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!
