If you are coming here to have a romantic meal and have a quiet conversation with your date...this is not the place for you. Although we had some issue with our order, the food was excellent. Our server took care of any problems ASAP. The place is just too noisy which make you talk super loud so your table can hear you which then make you part of the problem. Not sure how they can solve it...but they could also manage their own music noise level.

Very loud very expensive if you do not like seafood don’t go. My herb chicken was over cooked and not a taste of an herb for like $60!! Garlic mash potatoes were good and view was nice. It was very busy packed so people must like it but for us so not worth it I can make better chicken and steak!!

Our waiter James was great and let us take our time . Tomas came by and helped out with dessert and was also very nice. Overall we will be back and I will recommend Mastro’s to as many friends and family as we can.

Extremely disappointed! Made this reservation for a date and it was my first time in Boston! They sat us in the bar area at a table suitable for drinks or a casual meal! We should have been sat at a main dining room at the very least! Terrible ! Have been to Mastro’s many times and never had this happen. Valerie

Ran in for dinner on Friday night and had a New York strip with the cream corn and garlic mashed potatoes and the dinner was amazing try the sautéed shrimp as an appetizer and don’t forget to eat the Parmesan bread served underneath it it’s incredible tasting .

by OpenTable Diner on September 19, 2018
It was a great experience. I got an email from open table that we missed the reservation, but that is not true. We were a few minutes late and were seated quickly. It was an excellent meal.

Table wasn’t ready until 9:30 reservation 9,the waiter was busy, the food didn’t come out until 11 Pm and they forgot to bring the 2 sides dishes (mushrooms) after the manger came and apologize, said the will give us a bottle of wine . Then they charge it on the bill, until we said so then remove it !!

Great views - service was wonderful! The plate my filet came on was extremely hot and i think it even cooked the meat so my medium filet became medium well filet! Martinis are yummy!!!
by OpenTable Diner on September 15, 2018
Service was top notch but food was heavy. Vegetable sides had way too much butter and we prefer fresher, fewer toppings. Proximity of next table made regular volume conversation difficult even though we were in semi private room.
by Chasman on September 8, 2018
Excellent food and service from start to finish !
by OpenTable Diner on September 8, 2018
Atmosphere is great, not too loud....great view and great food
by OpenTable Diner on September 5, 2018
We were celebrating my son's 25 th bday and we had been here before & remembered it being loud. Our reservation was @ 6:00 & even then the noise level was very high with very few people there at this time. It was a beautiful Boston evening, water view, boats sailing, too warm to eat outside but I don't understand why you would create a restaurant which carries such a poor sound system!!! It's one of the worse I've been in & we are a large family & eat put often in Boston Would I return??? For a third time??? I don't know? My adult kids find it tooo loud as well. When the singer started one can't tell... if it's real or piped in& that's not good. Service, excellent... oysters not edible... gross...Duxbury where are you? Everything else was good. But... if you're paying such a huge price for a special dinner & cant enjoy conversation what's the point???

What a wonderful experience! The food and the service was first rate. It was my wife's birthday and when I made the reservation, I just made a simple notation to that effect just hoping to get a nice table. When we arrived, we were greeted by name and the hostess wished my wife a happy birthday. At our table overlooking the harbor, a birthday card signed by all the staff was waiting. Our waitress wished her a happy birthday. And there was the complimentary birthday cake with a candle and "happy birthday Valerie" written in chocolate on the plate. But the touch that made my wife's night was when the lounge singer/pianist sang "Valerie" by Amy Winehouse. None of this was asked for or arranged by me. Someone really went above and beyond in service. Of course the meal and drinks were excellent. We shared everything - a sushi roll, the heirloom tomato salad, scallops, filet, asparagus, port. All so delicious! And we really appreciate the manager stopping by at the end of our meal to ask how our meal was. All the little touches were recognized and much appreciated. We will be back again.

Wonderful food and wonderful server. Thank you so much!

Great setting fantastic food
by anonymous on September 1, 2018
Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Wine list very good with some wines reasonably priced. Food prices were over the top expensive. Much more expensive than similar restaurants in my experience. So value was low.
by StevenF on September 1, 2018
Excellent food and great service. Our waiter, Scott, was excellent and very knowleable. We ended up following his advice and could not have been more satisified with the results. He was also very familiar with Gluten Free needs and checked on several items just to be sure.
by Scottfam on August 27, 2018
We had great expectations for this seemed to meet the specifications of everyone in our group. It started-off great...awesome table outside, looking at the water. Drinks, while super delicious are quite pricey. Most of the food was very good, but three people ordered sea bass and the waiter brought out 3 orders of scallops. It took another 30minutes to get the right dish to the table and the sea bass was undercooked. The Manager did the right thing though and adjusted the bill. This had the potential to be a grand slam dinner!

Visiting Boston and tried Maestros. We loved it. The service, the food, the entertainment, the drinks, the atmosphere...everything was great. And to top it off we received a phone call the following day thanking us for our visit. Classy touch.
by richardfopiano on August 26, 2018
I thought the prices were on the high side even for restaurants of Mastro’s quality. The inside was very modern and the view of the harbor was spectacular.
by JuliaF on August 25, 2018
If not for tye waterftont, this restaurant doesn't offer anything that the other places dont have. Overpriced meals, $67 steak wasn't anything special, seabass with scallops was good, tye wine was good. We were seated outside and had a great view of tye harbor, and enjoyed the breeze. Once inside, it was loud. If you don't want to spend $500 on your dinner- look elsewhere. You can come and enjoy the view of tge harbor after;)

Delicious meal, excellent service and beautiful view. We sat outside
by RickG on August 23, 2018
Had another great dinner. They never disappoint, and the steaks and seafood are the best in Seaport, which says a lot given the quality competition. And the view from the terrace is the best.
by OpenTable Diner on August 20, 2018
Our server Scott was excellent; super knowledgeable and personable. Everything we ordered was excellent as well. The only reason this isn’t a full five star is the noise. There was musical entertainment who were very talented, but it was loud enough with that and the other tables around us that it was difficult to hear the conversation occasionally. Pricey meal, but worth it for the fresh chilled seafood and a rack of lamb that was phenomenal.
by MargaretC on August 19, 2018
A nice dinner for 4 where everyone found something to like on the menu. Fish, steak and a lobster salad as entrees were prepared well and served nicely. Cocktails served at the table were a step above most.
by OpenTable Diner on August 18, 2018
Just amazing!
by Marley501 on August 18, 2018
Wait staff is exceptional, our waiter, Valon, was fantastic! Great location on Boston Harbor, fantastic views, worth taking a walk around the area after dinner. My wife and I both got Halibut, very dry without much flavor…I’ll stick with Legal Seafood in the future. A little off topic but, there is an elderly gentleman attending in the men’s room, he is very deserving of your generosity, help him out – you’ll both feel better!
by DonnaQ on August 18, 2018
Absolutely delicious!!! And the service was outstanding. Loved it!!!

Exceptional staff and service
by GJ01 on August 17, 2018
Scott, Jenny and Ralph. were amazing and genuinely sweet which makes a huge difference. I also appreciated the thank you call the next day. mastro’s seaport has made an impression on my friends and I that we will never forget.
by TheaK on August 17, 2018
Great location, ‘scene or be scene’ ambience and oddly expensive. It’s just a steak house that wants to be “the” steak house. It needs some additional allure aside from location to fulfill that desire. But, none the less, it’s an enjoyable ( 1 time) experience.
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2018
The food was amazing and the portion size was good. The sides fed 3 people.
by MayaA on August 17, 2018
Beautiful view, nice ambiance, and great food! Pricy but we were happy going there fore Restaurant week.
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2018
Top of the class dining with great food and service. From impeccable service to great food and live music, this is great dining at it's best.
by BillyT on August 16, 2018
They made a mistake by bringing out one of the sides before the entree, and did nothing to compensate for it.
by corinnal on August 16, 2018
Amazing night at Mastro’s celebrating with family before the kids leave for college. Everything from the breathtaking elegant atmosphere with amazing views of Boston’s skyline, the upscale cuisine and superb service. No better place for a special evening!!
by EileenS on August 16, 2018
Food was excellent - some of the best I have had in Boston. High quality and presented beautifully. Excellent wine and interesting cocktails. Service was excellent. The problem was the noise level was very loud. It wasn't music or anything special, clearly the space amplifies voices and it is extremely loud. The restaurant has wonderful ambiance except for that detail. Not a place for a romantic conversation! It is an expensive evening but the quality of food is exceptionally high.
by Coppo30 on August 16, 2018
Have been to Maestros before. This time we had a table by the bar area and it felt like we were in a train station. Nevertheless service was good and food ok.

Master's Ocean Club is an energetic nightspot in Seaport that offers a lovely vista of the Boston Harbor. The open floor plan makes it impossible to hear your dining partners over the hum and buzz of large groups, hovering waiters, and live music; however, the overall dining experience is enjoyable BECAUSE of all the commotion. It's an interesting environment to people watch and any lull in the conversation can be enjoyed by listening to live acts or watching the waiters and other restaurant staff maneuver through the chaos. I invited my family to Mastro's Ocean Club during Boston Restaurant Week, so we stuck to a pre-set menu for $38/person. Our food was very well prepared and simple (namely, the pork chop and the salmon steak). There were no greens, pastas, or rice accompanying any of our entrees, but the portions were just perfect and indeed quite flavorful. I would recommend this restaurant for those who want to enjoy a fine dining experience in Seaport, but who are also willing to sacrifice some of their peace and privacy for a few hours. Cheers.

First of all, the restaurant is beautiful. Not the clubby steak house feel, but elegant with lots of glass and class. Second the waitress was amazing. There were 11 of us and she kept things straight, had a great sense of humor, and was just delightful. We were told by the manager she always gets rave reviews. Third, and saving the best for last-the food is amazing. The steaks were done to perfection and didn't need a bit of extra seasoning. The pretzel rolls that started the meal were a big hit. The sides, for the most part were terrific and served in huge portions. The creamed spinach is divine, but I'd ask for less salt next time. The fries were a bit soft and cool, but two other potato choices (mashed and twice baked) were wonderful. I like fries piping hot and crunchy. However, with all the food we ordered it didn't matter if one of the items didn't satisfy us. Overall the meal was a huge hit. We had the table for the evening and no one rushed us out so they could use our seats. Really a class act.
by Foodie1984 on August 15, 2018
We went for a Boston Dine In dinner. The menu was definitely very good value. Everything was so great. It is not easy to earn my 5 stars but they really deserve it. I will come back to try their regular menu.
by mura64 on August 15, 2018
We reserved at Mastro's during Boston's Restaurant Week. The three course, fixed price meal was very good - lots of flavor and well-prepared. However, the entree came with NO sides; they had to be ordered off the regular menu. I added a large baked potato to go with my filet mignon - cost? $14!! My wife ordered the $13 dollar steamed asparagus. What came out should embarrass the restaurant - 5 lonely spears of very large diameter asparagus (I would never serve my guests such tough, over-size veggies) with absolutely nothing on or beside them. At such prices, we expected much, much more. Add in the $22 martinis and $24 margaritas, and the final bill was way higher than a restaurant week meal should ever be. We felt snookered by the no-side thing. In sum, you can do much better elsewhere in the Seaport District.
