I found the whole experience at Mastro's to be a little overdone. Perhaps it was because it was New Year's Eve, but it seemed as if the venue was trying too hard to make the atmosphere more than what it was. Compared to the city's other steakhouses, the prices were too high for what we got. My steak came out... More

It was my first time at Mastro's as I usually dine at Joe's, but as this was open on Christmas day it was an easy option. I booked well in advance as I was in Chicago for Christmas and my birthday. Upon arrival we were told to place out jackets in the cloakroom and return to the front desk. Once... More

We have been to Mastro's several times and they have never failed to deliver! The meal always needs to be topped off with the Butter Cake; which is awesome!

My wife and I ate there on 12/17/16. We've been to several of the high-end downtown steakhouses and both agreed that this was by far the worst experience we had at any of the other steakhouses we visited. This was very disappointing as we both had heard great things. Here is a list of things we were frustrated with: 1)... More

We love coming here for date night. Our favorite is the steak and lobster mashed potatoes :) Don't be afraid of the $20 cocktails - they're worth it!

If you love meat, this place is for you. Scrumptious and full of flavour cooked steaks and the best sweet potato fries ever. Steaks served on piping hot plates. Plenty of choice on the menu and a great wine list too. Very nice ambience even if a little on the dark side and very attentive service. There is also a... More

Stroll up Dearborn Avenue and I can assure you will find better food and a better dining room atmosphere. Christmas Eve dinner-was expecting more-just average. Service was ok. Morton's, Ruth Chris' and Gibson's offer more menu options. However, the bar had great live music- and post Christkindlemarket/pre-dinner cocktails at the bar were just fine.

We went as a group of ~20 and had a private room. Absolutely superb, great seafood starters, large varity of steaks, excellent service, good wine selection. Quite expensive overall but well worth it with special guests.

One of my favorite downtown restaurants. One of my regular meals is the oysters for appetizer and butter cake for desert. I usually go and sit in the bar area. The live band is good and the company even greater. There's always a crowd so be prepared to wait even if you sit in the bar area, or have a... More

Where to begin... We started with a drink at the bar...excellence all-around. We were then taken to our table and learned about the Tomahawk Waygu ribeye...so we each ordered one (three of us). Unbelievably good. The sides were large enough to share, but when the food is this good, who wants to share? :) As you would expect at an... More
