Food, drink & dessert were delicious. The butter cake is my favorite. Our waiter Bill was a sweetheart.

Poor service, not great food for price ambiance of lovely live music ruined by football game on 4 TVs. Terrible, may as well be a sports bar.

Very thing was great about this restaurant. It's a little bit costly than what I'm use to paying, but the food was outstanding and it was a special occasion. Even eating the leftovers the next day it was still great. I recommend this place and will be back. Oh and they showed special attention to my wife, the birthday girl. She was made to feel special, like she is. Thanks

This was my first time dining here and went with my boyfriend for date night. The atmosphere was amazing , food far exceeded my expectations and the service was impeccable . We we also wanted to hear my friend sing in the lounge which was a treat as they are both very talented . Hope to come back soon .

Service and Ambiance was great. One of the saddest Iceberg salad wedge I have ever had. Everything else amazing.

I just celebrated my Birthday here. Excellent service, food, staff, and ambiance. I visited on a Sunday evening to celebrate my birthday. I had dinner in the lounge area and it was perfect. The music was great and not too loud. I would definitely come back!

Best food I’ve had and the staff is awesome! My sister and cousin took me for my birthday, got a chance to meet the executive chef. The butter cake was to die for!!! This is a must repeat!
by KirklandKris on September 8, 2018
Excellent service and the food was great! We split a filet, the Brussel sprouts and a baked potato and we did not have room for dessert. Thanks for making our date special.
by PKLV on September 8, 2018
Was good, as expected so no complaints other than our $35- corkage fee which is a little high.
by NLWslady on September 8, 2018
Second time going and I will go back again! The food and drinks are amazing! It is expensive, but worth it! The lobster mash and lemon drop is a must try!
by OpenTable Diner on September 8, 2018
Enjoyed our evening out. Had one very minor issue and they took immediate ownership. Overall exemplary service!

by MURRAYL on September 2, 2018
Great food as service as always. A bit pricey but you kind of know that going in.
by Paul on September 2, 2018
Steaks were delicious and prepared to proper temperature but the side dishes were lacking in flavor. Overall not a good value but will try again.
by OpenTable Diner on September 2, 2018
Always the best place in town. The Tomahawk steak was amazing - huge too. The floor managers do an amazing job keeping this restaurant running smoothly in a very fast paced environment. It is great to see managers on the floor making sure everyone is happy. It's get better each time here.

Desert Perfection! Thanks Mastro’s!!
by JavierS on August 25, 2018
NY Strip was order medium +, came out medium rare. Second occurence at this location. For the price point, they have to nail the temp. Perhaps cooking at 1500F is not the best approach for a steak order at 145F. Outside is seared, inside rare. Did not send back but should have. Our child was under the weather. Overall value compared to other local steakhouses is not there but the ambiance at the bar is probably one of the best around.

Went to mastro’s for the first time !!! We had the most expensive piece of meat the bone in filet and it had very little flavor and needed steak sauce which I refuse to use !!!! The garlic mushrooms were amazing thank his cause that’s the only flavor and I had to eat the filet with it 🙄🙄 the lobster tails were small for the price. They were 10 dollar tails for 32.00 each !!! Service wasn’t great !! We had to ask for more bread which we never got and I asked the waiter to bring me a bottle of Riesling with the meal and never got that either !!! When asked for wine recommendations he had nothing at all !!! Won’t go back thanks for the big bill tho :)

Our waiter was amazing! Great food and service. Great place for many occasions
by Pstahzsa on August 22, 2018
The last time I was at this location I gave it a 5 Star all the way. Having said that this visit was just okay... I don’t mind spending the money if you get what you pay for but not hundreds for just okay. I took my husband for his birthday and He could see the disappointment in my eyes. I really wanted to make it a special experience.
by JohnJ on August 18, 2018
Overall pleasant, romantic, steakhouse. Ordered the bone-in ribeye medium-plus and it came slightly overcooked. Server forgot part of the order. The mac and cheese was great. The grilled asparagus.. awesome! Wasn't tended to for a good stretch of the main course, no biggie. However, I had to flag the server 2 times during 1 course for small things that should have been taken care of (water glass empty and completely forgot my shrimp).. a 3rd and I would have complained. The ambiance was sophisticated, sexy, handsome decor.. Frank Lloyd Wright-ish? Rectangle chandeliers.. Earth tones.. sturdy woods.. stone.. There was a lot of Saturday night glass clinking, hair-primping, & extended laughter. Very energetic, flirty environment.. Ultimately a great date spot.

The promote their summer menu but they do not tell you that it is not good on the weekends this summer. We went there just for the special and when they told us it was not available we stayed but could not enjoy it as much. Not really the way to treat locals.

Great experience! VIP treatment from start to finish
by DarylN on August 9, 2018
Everything was perfect as usual. Starting with our hostess Brittany who always makes sure we get our favorite table to then our delicious food, ambiance, service (alyessa) and fabulous entertainment. We love Mastros! And ... special thank you to the manager Rebecca, who made sure we had a fantastic evening.

Although the price is on the high end, they do offer Pre-fixed seasonal 3 course meal with several choices and 2 sides. Great food and good value!
by DNH808 on August 8, 2018
Best cocktails in the desert! The bread basket is incredible, as are their salads and sides! Save room for dessert!

I dined there this past Saturday and had an extremely poor experience. I left a detailed review on yelp since I am limited here. I celebrated my anniversary dinner here with my boyfriend and his son and was disappointed in both the food and the service. Throughout our dinner we were not check on after receiving appetizers and main course. My steak was extremely over cooked and so was my boyfriends. He proceeded to eat his and finished and no one had approached our table to check on us even after I attempted to get my served attention. Eventually I was able to get another servers attention who brought my server. The server apologized and indicated he would have the steak taken off the bill. I was so disappointed with my steak that I didn’t focus on the fact that we also did not like the Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. The food was not eaten, but charged. Now that I reflect on my experience one would expect a server to acknowledge when food is not eaten. They sent us home with a piece of cake, which was good but not worth our $200+ dinner. Needless to say our anniversary dinner was ruined by this experience. I would have appreciated being approached by a manager and asked how our experience could be made better. I expect great service when fine dining and this was not the case.

Service was impeccable, food delicious. A lovely birthday dinner.
by MattM on August 2, 2018
We felt it was grossly overpriced for the meal. The presentation was so so.
by OpenTable Diner on July 29, 2018
Matt was an amazing server! Will be back for sure when we visit the area!
