We really enjoyed our visit to Mastro's. I ordered a filet medium rare. Our group also ordered cream corn, french fries and macaroni and cheese as sides. I had the spinach salad which was delicious to start with. Everything was delicious! The steak was tender and juicy. The sides were excellent (especially the cream corn!). As it was my brother's...

We have been dining in other Mastro establishments in California and Arizona, and all of them have been excellent. Mastro's in Palm Desert is no exception. It is located on El Paseo rubbing shoulders with high end stores,and just like at the stores quality comes with a price tag. This steakhouse offers excellent food, very attentive service, and for a... More

We bragged to our 4 friends about how wonderful the food and service was so superior to any other steakhouse we've been to. Everyone agreed to go. This is the first visit that I've experienced slow to no service. We all had drinks and dinner at the bar. We had to hunt down the bartender for more drinks. When we... More

Have loved Mastros since the first time I stepped in many years ago. Great food great atmosphere. Since being acquired by Landrys some of the service and good quality has suffered. While having visited most of Mastros locations this review is based on my visit to the Palm Desert location . The service level and personal touch has suffered in... More

My friends surprised me with a small gathering in the bar for Martinis and Tidbits....both excellent by the way....and having been a regular customer at Mastro's in Costa Mesa and Crystal Cove, was excited to see we finally had one here in Palm Desert. Same great service, make you feel special, and although a bit pricy, you deserve to spoil... More

How can a place like these have service that is so bad?!?! The waitress had a bad attitude, was rushing us to order and gave us the check without asking if we wanted anything else. Hope the management is looking at reviews and doing something to improve. At theses prices I expect exceptional service.

The location is great and was a 10 min drive from our Resort. The valet let us know that parking was complimentary and we were seated within a couple of minutes of arriving. The service was ok and the waiter was very personable and knowledgably about the menu. They offered a prefixed meal like they do at Morton’s who is... More

This was our introduction to Mastro's after hearing rave reviews about it from our friends. They hosted a party of seven for a birthday celebration, and had previously eaten there many times. First: The Food. Of seven entree's, two were NY Strip Steak that was so tough as to be inedible. One was sent back, the other struggled through stoically.... More

I chose to go to the restaurant for my birthday and I was not disappointed at all. I had a reservation and we did have to wait a few minutes when we got there, but I really did not mind. I was the Christmas season so everyone was in a festive mood. I had the bone marrow appetizer and it... More
