This is our new favorite restaurant in Pasadena, hands down. We've lived in Pasadena for decades, and always loved this community-- but until recently, Pasadena lagged behind other parts of LA (particularly the Westside) in terms of really outstanding places to dine. With the arrival...More

This was good mexican food, very close to what you get in Mexico. Definitely not texmex. It was an efficient restaurant and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Maestro’s is the real deal — it reminds me of the great gourmet Mexican restaurants in Mexico City, Ensenada, Tijuana and NYC. My favorite dishes are the Ceviche and the Scallops, but I’ve never had a bad meal here. Happy Hour is great, too, for...More

We were very sad to see Azeen's close, however Maestro has completely transformed the space and the food is excellent. I had the chicken enchilada, one in our party had pork belly, another duck and the last fish of the day. All entrees were excellent....More

Went there for a birthday dinner. What a disappointment. The meals are tapas sized, not the cost though. Fried calamari and the fish of the day are lukewarm. The duck carnitas taste good, wish it come with bread or chips to dip in the sauce....More

Friends of ours invited us to dine at Maestro's and raved about it. At first I thought it was another restaurant with a similar name...but, to my delight it was not. Our friends were running late, so we decided to have a drink at the...More

The date loves going to Mexican restaurants to try the Mole to compare it to her Mexican grandmother's. In 7 years, no luck. So after 1 bite of Maestro's (which is plated in the shape of Mexico!) I asked, "Well?" She replied, "It's better than...More
