Talking about great and unique drinks only! If you enjoy Old Fashions! You should try their traditional OF made with tequila, mezcal and the traditional other ingredients! I was a little concerned about what I was going to get but surprisingly it was incredible! Food...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

A truly innovative and tasty dining experience, Maestro combines refined and delicious small plates with authentic Mexican ingredients and killer margaritas along with an impressive selection of tequilas/mezcals.

This restaurant has the best Mexican food I've had in LA, and it's surprisingly affordable. Maybe expensive for your typical Mexican eatery, but a bargain for high-end dining. For three of us we ordered two small-plate starters, a beet salad, and two main-course plates, and...More

Maestro delivers one flavor-bomb after another. Smallish casual room but comfortable. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the entire menu and the cocktail menu as well. He made our visit truly memorable. The mezcal and conventional tequila cocktails are fantastic and unique. The duck carnitas,...More
