Good Food and Great Atmosphere – The food and atmosphere were great. I can't wait to go back. What a fun night!
First Timer at this location – I normally go to the Mastro's in Beverly Hills, but decided to try this one and loved it. The food and atmosphere were great. I definitely will be coming back soon.
Splurge Night – Big night out for my husband and I. I closed a large deal and wanted to celebrate. Knew I would spent $200.00 plus for dinner neither of us are drinkers but had been to Mastro's many times in the past and wanted the experience again. Sorry ti say there must be a new chef! Nothing was as good! Lobster I has paid $85 for in the past which was excellent is less now but also less quality! Mu Husbands Filet wasn't so tender. Creamed spinach needed salt and I don't salt! Also garlic mashed the same. Service was great. Jon was friendly and attentive. Dessert came and to my husband's great disappointment the butter cake too wasn't as good. I don't write this to slam the restaurant, but to hopefully improve. It's an amazing location and great night out. I just want the same great food it used to serve. What happen?New chef? May want to rethink that decision. Oh and not related to old chef and no ulterior motives other than to replace the past experiences.
Mastro's Ocean Club Rocks! – I loved the steaks and seafood at Mastro's and the live music on the weekend is the best in Newport Beach. My bartender Pat served me an exceptional drink at the main bar that knocked me off my feet. I find it hard to stay away on the weekends because the bar area is so comfortable and the service is always great. I can't believe the reviews below, they must be angry about the higher cost of fine dining.
Many times b4... not again! – I've been here many times, and the last time wasn't my favorite. We went for our anniversary, just for dessert since we went elsewhere to eat dinner (just to try a new place). We didn't have a reservation, but it was late as it was so i figured it's just two people, not staying long anyways. (around 11pm already!) We walked in and the hostess said she would see if they had a table, so we waited around in the lobby. (SHE DIDINT MOVE A STEP FROM THE F**** PODIUM) so after about 20 min i had my husband ask if she found anything. (we were getting tired of watching old white women with boob jobs that looked like they needed to be redone and overly tanned skinned, along with their 'sugar daddy' husbands! ha) finally we sit down. It was very very very crowded in the bar area, which the hostess took us through there to sit in the middle area where its pretty much a view of the sky. (idk why she didn't walk through the other way??? I know there's another way of getting there!) so we sit down and our waiter comes around... (he was a smart ass) im not there to make small talk with waiters! we get our food, ordered the infamous butter cake... which ive had many times, and honestly I don't think it's as good as before. (IVE MADE THE RECIPE... mine was better. ) eh .. so we finish and leave. Over all this place has lost it's "high end touch" .. now i see it as a place for old white rich ppl to show how much money they have.. COURSE. just bc we didnt flaunt how much money we had.... doesn't mean we didn't have any... might i say winning the lotto not to long ago is great! buutttt.... i don't think we'll be taking our millions here. I guess they should start judging ppl!
"Meat" market – First off, this place is in a gorgeous location just across the street from the Pacific Ocean. That is about as good as it gets; when we visited expecting great food and ambiance as well, we were sorely disappointed. The ok food was far outweighed by all the singles looking to find a hook-up for the night. Too crowded, too noisy and not for those NOT on the prowl.
Also, the review below mine is by a (new) Mastro's employee...isn't that against CitySearch policy? How unbiased could that review be?
extraordinaire quality and service – been in the restaurant industry 24 years and just got hired at matros ocean club last week!after having dinner there decided to apply and leave my long time current job and join mastros!very impressed and also very exicted to work there!the food is fabulous and yes might be pricy but the steaks and the fish are exeptionally fresh and tasty!worth the visit at least once to judge it by yoursef!
Don't waste your time/money – Sadly, I have to agree with some of the other reviews, this place is grossly overpriced and simply, not good. By the way, I rarely take the time to actually write a review. However, this place was so bad I feel it my moral and civic responsibility to do so.
Here’s the synopsis:
Overall extremely expensive;
Slow and non-attentive service;
Two of 5 meals were not cooked to order;
Appetizers were large, but mediocre, at best;
Mains were also large, but mediocre, at best;
Filet mignon was very good, but not cooked to order;
Drinks were good but very expensive ($19 for a martini. Yes, there was enough for 1 ½, but please $19?).
All in all, I’ll never go here again. Even if someone else buys, I will not go here. Please, someone bring good food to Orange County!
Great location – I have been going to Mastro's Ocean Club since they first opened their doors. I spent the first New Years they opened at Mastro's to welcome the New Year. I have entertained big parties there and my last visit about 3 week ago was the worst service EVER!!!! The guy did not seem to be young but be was so slow and forgetful with our orders that I so much wanted to get up and walk out. I am thinking that upper management better wake up otherwise Mastro's will be losing some its best regular cliental.
