“Great Anniversary ..In a Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I was planning to take my fiancé last month to celebrate together her Bd in Maestro but bad luck we didn't know that it's closed on Sat.'s ,I was very excited after reading the reviews on trip advisor best place to take good reviews . I was keen to take her on our anniversary ..which was today, the place was great ! Blasting despite the first impression from the staff attitude when entering made me think for a second that I was fooled but this changed immediately,best service ever. The food is warm cream mushroom soup ,fantastic perfect risotto , very tasty rack lamb the same with the fillet and quite nice dessert . The place is very romantic with soft music and a guitarist playing ... Need to increase the food variety though, Very romantic & classy with great service and compensation just when they felt that i was dissatisfied ,which after all this was wrong,,,thanks for all the staff and the chef ..especial thanks for Tamer Fayek (Assistant Manager-Maestro) he took real good care of us and from all of the guests..and became a friend...Thanks Maestro for a great anniversary! Sure I will be back

“Will never forget....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

I had traveled a lot and have had many great meals..but I will never forget my meal at Maestro. I has an amazing lamb dish that was cooked to perfection. The plate was served with a linguine pasta with a very light combination of pesto, olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. The lamb was so fresh that it melted when it entered your mouth. It was a very light meal bursting with flavor. I am glad the chef came to the table because I was able to let him know how great the meal was.

The ambience of the restaurant was really nice and elegant. The restaurant has a very nice musician playing the guitar. The music was a great backdrop to a an amazing dinner.

Unfortunately I did not had dessert but wish I would because they just looked divine.
