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 is relaxed and attentive. Don't forget to save room for their signature Warm Butter Cake for dessert.

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 my semi-retirement and wanted a fabulous bottle of wine to accompany the meal. Their wine list did not disappoint! The choices were endless. They even bought out a nice dessert to help us celebrate. Mastro's is our new go to steakhouse for sure!!

This is a place that you don't want to not enjoy the food. It is all excellent and the sides are served family style. If you are a fish lover and price is not holding you back have the seafood tower. It is excellent!!!!

Let me start with the quick basics. Eat here. The food is great. But don't eat in the DR off the bar, it's like sitting in the sad, runt banquet room banished from the real action, with poor lighting and sad decor that feels like an after thought...the DR where they put the tourists, and the people who didn't have a reservation or contacts. The real action is sitting in the bar (but if you go on a Saturday night take your ear plugs bc the music pumps.) The food is, as you would expect from a tony chain that is a celebrity fav in L.A., similar to Capital Grille but with west coast props. Its located on the main strip in Palm Springs that is "The" place to be for shopping and trolling. El Paseo Drive is where rolls royces and maserati's go to strut their peacock feathers. (Its also where single, "way older" men with a lot of money and fragile egos, go to flaunt. Just saying.) El Paseo is the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs and from shopping to dining, its absolutely a must when you visit because it's the high rent district. Mastro's is a solid, reliable chain steakhouse with delish food and strong service. We were staying at the Ritz, and wanted a good dinner out that wasn't a risky crapshoot. This was perfect. Mastro's is solid .. perhaps carrying a bigger reputation than reality serves up ... but I would eat here again bc I know I will get a great meal. Even if the ambiance could use a ratchet up, given the high prices and the buzz.

This is the third Mastro's we have eaten at-always consistently excellent food and service. Our party of four decided to try the "summer menu"-fixed price menu with choice of starter (crab cake, French onion soup, iceberg wedge), entrée (filet, ribeye, pork chop, salmon), and desert (profiteroles, butter cake, cheesecake). You also get your choice of several sides. Very good value-food was cooked just at ordered. The waiter was professional and helpful (I like my steak rare-Mastro's puts a rare steak on a cold plate-when I asked what a medium rare steak was like, he suggested the rare steak on a hot plate-perfect!). Cocktails are expensive but they are served in shakers left at the table so you really get at least 1 1/2 cocktail. Very nice wine list. Get a reservation if you are going at a peak time.
