My wife and i always love the food and ambiance here. The service and drinks are also the best in DC. Impromptu date nights, special occasions or friends night out, we always spend here.

The only thing I can say other than it's the best steak I've ever had, is to order the crab, also the best Ive ever had. This place nails it and didn't skip a beat. If you're in D.C. looking for a great meal, it can't be missed.

Taz was fantastic. We really enjoyed him and the service he provided.

This was my first time dining here however my waiter Hamien was professional, informative, new the menu well and provided the best experience possible. He definitely made the experience well worth it. The food was amazing.

We are HUGE Mastro's fans - we pride ourselves by having been to the majority of Mastro's locations, and we continue to seek out Mastro's where ever we go. We have also hosted numerous events at a variety of Mastro's. So when our best friend was going to be by himself for his birthday - where else would we go? We arrive and were told we are gong to be seated downstairs. What? We love the electric vibe of Mastro's - and we certainly did not get that by sitting in what amounted to a corporate dining room (event space that was unused). Might as well have gone to our local country club. The other major disappointment - the tomahawk steak. It had so much gristle - we were shocked by the small size and the even smaller amount of edible meat due to gristle. Gary, our server, was terrific. Cocktails, as always - divine. I have written other glowing reviews for Mastro's -sadly this evening did not hit the mark.

This was my second visit to Mastro's and I confess that I was terribly disappointed. There were several issues, starting with the incredibly loud live music in the bar. We were in the dining room nowhere near the bar, but still had trouble having a conversation because the music was so loud. It felt more like we were at a concert and not a high dollar steakhouse. I ordered the escargot appetizer and not only was it not as flavorful as I expected, the bread that was served with it was a little waxy and bland. Some of the bread that was served prior to our meal was reheated one too many times and was too hard to eat. I ordered my steak "medium" and it arrived with a cool very red center (a little rarer than I was expecting). On a positive note, the Gorgonzola mac & cheese was awesome and the chocolate cake and birthday card was a surprise that my friend really appreciated. In short, I think I was expecting a much better experience for a $350+ dinner.

I made reservations here for my boyfriends 30th birthday dinner for him and I. From the moment we walked in we loved everything about this place. There was a live band that sang hits from the radio from the selection of R&B Soul. The waiter was amazing. He let us know the ins and outs and everything on the menu since it was our first time. The food was hot and amazing and made for couples to share. We tried the Hennessy Sidecar as a cocktail and it was nothing short of amazing. Everything was perfect and my boyfriend enjoyed every minute of his dinner. Thank you Mastro’s we will be back!

Loved it!! My favorite restaurant hands down!!!

Great room, food and service. 1st time-will not be last. Mourtazo(Taz) provided extraordinary service.
by Martika on July 13, 2018
We were greeted by Juan who would be our server this evening. All recommendations were outstanding. I started out with the lobster bisque. Wonderful flavor, loaded with sweet delicate crab meat. We ordered the 20oz nine in ribeye which was cooked to perfection. Simply delectable. Lightly charred on the outside with a warm center. Along with the ribeye we had sea scallops which were tender and melted in your mouth and our vegetable of choice was the Brussel sprouts. Fantastic dinner and thank you Juan for making our dinner simply wonderful.

The best server EVER!
by OpenTable Diner on July 13, 2018
Unforgettable experience. Server Gary spot on with his recommendations. Had a fantastic table, New York was the best steak I’ve ever had. Will be back soon.

Food was exceptional! As well as the service
by OpenTable Diner on July 12, 2018
We had a new server, he was about a week in and he was fantastic! He knew the menu very well and had perfect timing the whole night!
by OpenTable Diner on July 11, 2018
Great food, great service and great ambiance. This was my 2nd time @ Mastros Wash DC and will continue to come anytime I’m in DC!!

The bone-in filet is life changing. We started with the Maguro Lime Roll, followed by the magical bone-in filet with Foie Gras butter, and finished with the delectable butter cake. If you don't finish with this, then you are truly missing out.

It's wonderful that the restaurant offers live music.....unless you want to have a conversation with your dining partner. Food was good, but not exceptional. Service was good, but a bit overbearing
by BrianC on July 8, 2018
Absolutely fantastic food, and the service was incredible. While the restaurant was moderately crowded, the staff was very attentive and made us feel as thought we were the only ones there. It was very pricey, but the food and service were worth it. Will definitely be back!

Music and food make Mastros my favorite steakhouse when I am at any of there locations. I have had consistently great Food and enjoyed the music at six different locations.
by KristiS on July 7, 2018
I went for my birthday. The ambiance was elegant. The food was amazing and the live music ( Seva,) made this a memorable, fun birthday.
by Adennymark1 on July 6, 2018
Dinner was great. However damper was put on the evening when a martini glass broke into pieces on our table causing my friend to cut her finger. Looking back, we should have been moved to another table to ensure no one was hurt.

Celebrated our 21st Wedding Anniversary at Mastro's Steakhouse - DC. It was our first visit and we truly enjoyed the customer service, the food, the ambience, and the soft music. Looking forward to bringing family and friends to Mastro's during their visit to DC!

My wife and I have been to Mastro's in Chicago and in DC, both experiences were magnificent!
by Jdbr on July 5, 2018
We loved our waiter Gerald! Thanks so much for being awesome! Your SC guests.
by MichelleNicole on July 3, 2018
We had a fabulous time! The food was great as usual and the staff was absolutely amazing! We usually go to the Beverly Hills location but now I can say that the DC location is on point as well. Thank you for your outstanding service!
by Jd4Sobe on July 3, 2018
The best filet mignon in DC! Everything was fabulous, from the bone marrow and crab cocktail appetizers, to the filet and mashed potatoes, to the chocolate strawberries, ice cream, and Grand Marnier chaser! The smoking cocktails are a special treat! Plus, our waiter was superb!
by OpenTable Diner on July 2, 2018
We were celebrating my wife’s induction into the international AIFD previously that evening. We were able to top the evening off with a fantastic meal. Starting with the expertly mixed drinks to the wonderful lump crab appetizer. The bone in filet was cooked to perfection as was my wife’s delectable salmon. The entire evening was made even more special by our attentive waiter, Daniel. Thanks for making this already very special evening even more so. Can’t wait to return.
by LoriG on July 2, 2018
Our family enjoyed a superb meal with service that was outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience!

Believe it or not our biggest disappointment was the famous butter cake. It was dry. We have had this dessert in NYC many times and it always moist and delicious.
by TimS on June 30, 2018
Sucked - waiter sucked, wrong steak, bills totally screwed up. Very disappointing!! Won’t go back not worth it.
by OpenTable Diner on June 29, 2018
Truly incredible service and food. It’s definitely pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion or if you’re looking to impress.
by JayL on June 28, 2018
Crab cake was poor. Everyone from the bay area knows to use us crab not Alaskan king crab. Cheaper fillers and breading is unacceptable Also additional add on charges for steak toppings is obnoxious and petty. Just charge the proper fee for the steak and give a free choice of toppings.
by BrothaTy on June 26, 2018
Perfect as always.
by OpenTable Diner on June 23, 2018
Love dining at Mastro’s! My boyfriend and I decided to make it a date night and dine @ Mastro’s on a Saturday evening. The food was delicious as usual, but our service fell short this evening. We were seated by the hostess at our table without menus for about 10-15 minutes, until my boyfriend asked a waiter passing by for some menus. When we did get a waiter we rarely saw him throughout the evening. Otherwise the food and ambiance was great, the service lacked luster.

Food and service outstanding!!! Noise level a bit off putting but overall excellent.
by OpenTable Diner on June 23, 2018
The service was extremely subpar and not worth the amount of money we paid. Fix the cultural experience and training.
by OpenTable Diner on June 23, 2018
We were there as a family to celebrate my mother’s 72nd Birthday...the ambience was magnificent, the food was excellent but the service was absolutely impeccable. Edwin (our server extraordinaire) was highly knowledgeable and experienced, accommodating, personable and one of a kind. The managerial staff (especially Steven) were highly personable and customer service oriented as well and went the extra mile to assist us in our celebration of our beloved mother. We would highly recommend this restaurant experience to those residing in and visiting the DMV area.

It’s Was Torch!!!

Great restaurant brilliant atmosphere , waitreSs was quite rude but water waiters and hostess very friendly , music was amazing
by VinnieV on June 22, 2018
Second visit to Maestro’s and experience was great both times. Steak was prepared perfectly and cuts were high quality. Music was ok but provided by a live duo by the bar which made a nicer experience. Definitely would return.
by crosbyja on June 22, 2018
The Wagyu bone-in Ribeye was absolutely amazing. Lobster bisque as well as the lobster mashed potatoes - wow. Followed up with some butter cake??? OMG
