I liked Mastro's very much, and would happily return. The food and drinks were good, and so too was the setting. Service was quite good also.

I have been to Mastros many times and usually love it. This time I tried the special which was an A5 wagyu beef. I ordered it medium. It was literally cold in the center...not even warm. A5 is generally more marble which makes it so good. This literally had almost no meat and all fat. It was disgusting. The rest... More

Rather elegant place, but too noisy to have a pleasant conversation. 2 out of 3 dishes were not cooked as ordered so one was overcooked and the other undercooked and the one that seemed ok wasn't anything special. Unimaginative dishes, outdated. The quality of my meat was not great either. I can say there are better options in town not... More

Very well deserved the award of excellence from wine spectator! Was a good option for a Sunday dinner. The lounge area is a little bit noisy due to the reason that there is live music! The band is good and they played top current hits. Smoke Salmon as appetizer was not that good but then I ordered the Bone-In Ribeye... More

Get your wallet ready because you will spend $$$$ but it is worth it. The portions are copious and you truly get what you pay for. The ambience was fitting for an upscale restaurant. The Clear Lobster Roll and Chilean Sea Bass were delectable. Try the Alaskan Crab gnocchi, you won't be disappointed. The signature warm butter cake was divine!

Overall really enjoyable experience. The servers were well educated on the menu. I ordered a french onion soup, porterhouse steak and our table of three got a side of mushrooms and onion rings (ONION RINGS WERE HUGE and really good). We sat in the lounge area with live music which was great for a little more upbeat social setting -... More

Always a great choice, we had a special treat this past Labor Day with the exceptional Bacon Steak. Unique and very tasty. Also a great wine list and don't forget that deadly warm butter cake with the heavenly whipped cream. A special thanks to our waiter, Miguel for adding to our overall enjoyment.

Our family has eaten here a few times, it is one of the best steakhouses in the city- and that is quite an accomplishment. We started off with ahi tuna tartare and beef Carpachio- both were excellent. For our meal we split a steak that was cooked to perfection. Dessert was excellent as well- the key lime pie and warm...

What an amazing treat! Superb service, fabulous cocktails and the BEST caesar salad I have ever had...and I have salads daily. Salmon was out of this world. My hubby's bone in filet was incredible (he reports). Would go nightly if wallet could keep up😃

We ended up here very last minute after a failed attempt to dine at another Chicago steakhouse due to rude and disrespectful staff. They welcomed us and got us in right away after hearing of our bad service. Having never been here before the inside is dark and I mean dark. Lighting is very dim very hard to read the... More
