Party of 3 world travelers. All of us are used to eating at huge cities such as NY, SF, Boston, Paris, London, Boston, Washington DC. in high end restaurants incl. steakhouses. This place was a rip off. $56 for a New York Strip 16 oz. , $37 for an average size Salmon...in addition the side dishes which are family size... More

The food was very good. The service was even better. The menu choices were great. The bar was open and welcoming while we waited for our table.

We have been to numerous Mastro's around the county and each and every location is sheer perfection. The food is amazing, the wine, conversation and service a true memory. Can't wait to go again here in DC and the next time we are in Scottsdale or Palm Springs, each creates a memorable experience.

Beautiful restaurant, like its sister restaurants in Scottsdale. We got terrific service at the bar, and really enjoyed ourselves. However, my $65 steak tasted like it was parmesan encrusted. My wife, who is a chef, agreed with me. The server/bartender disagreed. Even though everything else was good, I would not go back.

We've been to several Mastros and the food and service at this one are top-notch. Typical upscale pricing where everything is alacarte, but the sides are well prepared and generous for sharing. If you want to hear more of the lively vibe and music from the bar, ask for seating in the east dining room. The west dining room is... More

Mastros is a small chain of top shelf restaurants. The sashimi grade ahi tuna tostadas were perfect. We were there with 2 other couples and shared sides. Everyone had steak. The only thing that I would change is the aging process. The meat is definitely prime but wet aged....I prefer dry. My wife and I shared the 48 ounce porterhouse.... More

I've been to a few Mastro's locations and this isn't on a par with the others - and I've been to the Palm Desert restaurant 3 times. The service was quite good but we've had mediocre steaks, where they missed on the cooking times. This location can be loud when there's live music and the bar is popular so it... More

My Wife and I, decided to go to this steak house to celebrate our wedding anniversary and to see what was all the buzz about. Well, now I get it. We truly enjoyed the night. The food was perfect; from the bread selection to the appetizers and of course, the steaks. Wow everything was what we expected and more. But... More

Mastro's is a wonderful addition to the Palm Desert food landscape. During the summer months they have a 3-course prix fixe menu that is full of choices, but don't miss out on the petit filet, it is perfection. The ambience is dark and romantic. They have live music in the bar that permeates every corner of the restaurant. The service... More

My husband and I recently visited Mastro's for the first time. We have been to all the other top steakhouses such as Ruth's Chris and Flemming's but Mastro's is a level above! It has the feel of an old time establishment with that dark and intimate vibe. The steak was simply amazing-better than any we have had. We were celebrating... More
