An import from Scottsdale, Arizona, Mastro's embraces classic steakhouse traditions as warmly as it welcomes the moneyed clientele that frequent this bustling eatery. A relatively sedate dining room occupies the ground floor, while a lively bar scene---downright boisterous by buttoned-down steakhouse standards---awaits upstairs, along with additional dining space. A more modern interpretation of the clubby American steakhouse, the restaurant is attractively appointed, with cushy black leather banquettes, white linen-clad tables, stone accents and backlit mirrors. The straightforward but pricey menu features New York strip, porterhouse and rib-eye steaks, a very respectable rack of lamb and a smattering of options for non-carnivores (salmon, live Maine lobster, ahi). Traditional steakhouse starters include a dramatically presented shrimp cocktail (with dry ice special effects) and a gargantuan wedge of iceberg lettuce. Sides fall in line accordingly, with creamed corn, asparagus and mashed potatoes. If you still have room, try one of the classical, delightful desserts, such as the chocolate coffee cake or the pecan pie. You'll find plenty of big red wines on the pricey list; the martinis here are legendary.

“Still the king” of carnivorous consumption, this “über-steakhouse” chain hosts “wheeler dealer” types “paying a fortune” for “generous” cuts of “mouthwatering” “prime meat”, “extravagant” seafood towers and “sinful” sides, all matched with “world-class” service; the Beverly Hills branch comprises a “vibrant”, “Vegas”-like piano bar and a toned-down dining room.

The pretzel bread is delicious. If it is your birthday month, then Mastro's will give you a free piece of birthday cake for dessert.  Let me know if it is your birthday month, then I will let them know that we are celebrating your birthday.

A $20 deposit is required for this event.  The deposit is refunded after the meetup provided that 1) you attended the meetup or 2) canceled before the 24-hour deadline. If you cancel for any of the events after the 24-hour deadline or don't show, then in addition to losing your deposit, you will be removed from the group by our organizer.  If you are not removed from the group, I guarantee that you will be demoted to persona non grata for all of my future events.  I never forget a no-show and a late cancellation.

If you are on the waiting list and a spot opens up, the system will email you to notify you about the opening.  Click the "CHANGE" button under "Your RSVP: Waiting".  Select "Yes".

    I'll be succinct. This was my 7th time at Mastro's. We got 6 sides that were shared among all of us: gorgonzola mac and cheese, garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, creamed spinach, creamed corn, and sauteed sugar snap peas. As for my steak, I got the bone-in filet for the first time today. It was so tender that cutting it required very little effort. It was a departure from my usual chef's cut rib eye chop. Next time, I will get the chef's cut NY strip. As for dessert, I shared the pecan pie a la mode with Julie. I'm not a pecan pie connoisseur, but I think this is one of the best pecan pies out there. Next time, I will try the key lime pie. Although I am abstemious, from a utilitarian perspective, thank you to Joanne and Steve for sharing their wine. Good luck to Joanne.
