This is definitely a high end expensive restaurant, but the filet mignon I had here was one of the best I've ever tasted. The sides were mashed potatoes and creamed spinach and both were super. Located on El Paseo, which is a very upscale shopping district, I offers a great location for a walk before or after dinner. Next time... More

My favorite of the Mastro's locations and the first one I visited back in 2015. Great service, many menu choices, excellent wine list, and the steaks are cooked perfectly.

This is a step above the usually upscale steak restaurants. Service is outstanding - I have never seen so many servers on the 'floor'. Above average choices of sides, cocktails, starters and desserts. All food and drinks were wonderful. We went on a Saturday night and it was crowded and VERY noisy in and around the bar area. You might... More

Steaks (filets and porterhouse) were cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. Side dish orders are mean to be shared. Excellent selection of quality wines but also expensive. Service was impeccable. Clearly a high end establishment.

About 30 of us went to have diner. The service was excellent for this many people. The food was great as well as the drinks. Although the room where we ate was small, we were able to move around and network as it was intended. In the bar there was music but we did not stay.

Everything about this restaurant was perfect. Our steaks were magnificent, cooked just right for each of us. The side of potatoes were dream-worthy. We had read the reviews and saved room for their renowned butter cake, which surpassed the raves others gave it. Yes, it's expensive, but the service is impeccable and the food superb.

Everything is a la carte so you order your meat and then sides and salads are extra. My filet was supposed to be medium well, which it was around the outside, but still pretty rare inside. Also looked like the steak had been mangled. Presentation could have been better.

Was here with a large group. We were attended to with prompt and excellent service. We had a semi-fixed menu, but given our groups size it was justified. Our 3 course meal was masterfully executed. First course - steak tartare, smoked salmon - both were flavorful and exquisite. Second course - I got the new york strip, medium rare. It... More
