“One of the Best”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This place is somewhat pricey but well worth visiting on a special occasion. Spent an anniversary and a birthday here. Each time we received great service. My filet mignon was cooked just the way I asked, and their lobster mashed potatoes are definitely worth the price. My boss had recommended the butter cake and it was so deliciously fattening. Can drop an easy $200 here so plan ahead. I would return here.

Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The best steak ever, nice decent proper place to invite guest or friends. I highly recommend it. The size of the steaks are huge, make sure you're hungry when you go

“Outstanding”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I ate here with colleagues and friends to celebrate an important event. I had previously dined at the Mastro's in Chicago. This restaurant was much the same - large, refined, great smells and outstanding service. Two of us had the porterhouse, one had the rib eye, one had the petit filet and the other had seared tuna. Sides were sautéed mushrooms, sweet potato fries and green beans. The steaks were completely outstanding - tasty, tender and cooked to perfection. Sides were also good. This is a wonderful restaurant for a special event and I will definitely be back

“Chopped Salad a Must”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

yes, you have read about the steaks and the butter cake and the wine....but the chopped salad is also a must have. It is very good and a perfect starter with the scallops and followed by a petit filet mignon, or porthouse if you are hungrier, some good wine, and the butter cake...or chocolate lava cake. All yummy, but, yes pricy.

“Steaks cooked to perfection”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We celebrated our daughter's birthday at Mastro's in Costa Mesa. Extensive menu and exceptional wine list. Five steaks were ordered: rare,2- medium rare, medium and medium well (gasp, but the waiter did not appear to be upset)- all were cooked perfectly. Although not described, salads all have generous amounts of cheese, my son was surprised to find it on his spinach salad. The sides we ordered: sweet potatoe fries, brussel sprouts, crab gnocchi were delicious. The interior was very dark, it took time for our eyes to adjust. Everything is a la carte, so be prepared to spend! Only negative was Valet parking is NOT OPTIONAL and waiting for our cars after dinner took 20 minutes! Not a place for young children
