Hands-down the best restaurant in Boston for special occasions, dates, or business meals. The location is awesome, the staff are very courteous and accommodating, and the food is simply delectable.

Music was too loud all night and made it difficult to carry on a normal conversation. Our server Marc was terrific and the food very good.

Our 2nd time there, first time was amazing from service to food 5 star, this time not so much. Our waiter was young and not as polished as some as the others, not very attentive, I guess that comes with age. Apps were great, shrimp & oysters were awesome. Steaks were over cooked, 2 filets, asked for medium and they were almost all gray inside, should have sent back I know. Bone in filet was a little fatty which is unusual for high end restaurant, sides were delicious. I guess try one more one time and see what happens.

Lovely evening with excellent food. Service was a little disjointed but not terrible. The waitstaff did fail to recall it was our anniversary but not a worry in the end.

We went to Mastro’s this past Saturday night and it was the best dinner and dining out experience we’ve had in a long time. The food was beyond amazing. Our server Tiffany was incredible and the service was perfect!!! Every question we asked about the menu was answered with such detail you could almost taste how delicious the meal would be and her recommendations were awesome. The food came out with perfect timing and the ambience was beautiful, exciting and memorable.

Everything was delightful. Except the Gorgonzola Mac and Cheese was a little bland, could have used more "zip", more Gorgonzola. Good, bur not great like everything else. The house special desert cake - I forget the name - is spectacular/sinful.

Food was fantastic and our server, Ryan, was amazing! The tables are a little too close together and our chairs got bumped by servers and other diners several times but the food and service made up for that little annoyance

We had a lovely meal on the outside terrace at sunset. The drinks and food were perfect, but the best part was our server Chloe.... She will be our special request next time!

I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Only for special ocassions. The live music was amazing, Perfect lighting, spectacular food! The only thing I was not a fan of was the noise level was surprisingly too high.

The service was awesome and the food was extremely tasty. The portions are a good size and even the drinks were made delicious. Highly recommend.

Truly the best meal I have ever had in Boston and the some of the best service I’ve ever had at any restaurant in the world. Mastro’s staff is truly incredible. Great location on the water with great views from the dining room. Seafood tower is always great. Suggest the never ending martinis.

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT I BELIEVE THEY OVERCHAGED ME ON ONE OF THE STARTERS.

I ONLY ORDERED ONE ALASKA CRAB LEG (WORTH US$35) BUT THEY CHARGED FOR TWO.

SO I OVERPAID US$35 AND I DID NOT NOTICE THAT NIGHT!

Beautiful location… Overlooking the Boston Harbor… My waiter was very inexperienced and came off like a greedy punk kid...completely junior varsity...He brought me my side dish after I had already finished my entrée…the chopped wedge was okay at best, filet was as tasty as Outback Steakhouse...Lemon sole was good...broccoli was no big deal...Gorgonzola mac n cheese was delicious.

Other than the view, I would not return.

Our server was just not existent. I think we sat for at least 10 minutes before anybody came to our table. Then once we ordered, we never saw our server again until we asked another server to get her. For the higher-end style restaurant, the service was a 1/10. Just not acceptable.

Food was fabulous -
Experience was really made by the waiter Marc (with a C!)
Extremely personable - took the time to talk with us - explain the menu - answered all our questions and was always there when we needed something despite it being a VERY BUSY Saturday evening. Portions are large (compared to other Boston steakhouses) - would return without a doubt!

Have been to Maestro’s many times because it is consistently exceptional. This visit was no different. Tutu was so welcoming and Ryan was an absolute fabulous server. His sense of humor was contagious and had our family laughing throughout the entire meal. So much fun!

Waiter and staff were new nice but slow with basics like Bread missing one menu etc. Apps were good but 8oz filet was a bit over cooked and dry. Drinks were good and desert was on the house for 21 st birthday celebration. Overall very very pricey but room on the water view is beautiful. 3 people $600 + with tip without bottle of wine is high. Even in Boston

I should have stuck with reliable Ruth Chris. What an excellent way to ruin a birthday dinner. I decided to take my girlfriend to Mastro’s after all of the great feedback I heard from colleagues. Everything "started" well. My girlfriend was greeted with birthday wishes from the host. We were seated, and then everything all went downhill.

Major Concern/issues

Drinks were great. I finished my mule within the first 5 minutes of being seated. I assumed a staff member would have gotten the hint to offer me another drink. No one asked me if I would have liked another drink. I usually good for 3-5 drinks for special occasion.

My girlfriend ordered her ribeye medium-well. It came out bloody in the center, so she asked if they could reheat it. They came back with a BEYOND well-done steak. I cannot even believe they had the guts to bring the burnt steak back out to the table. The steak was inedible. However, my steak turned out decent (even though I had to give half to my girlfriend). The sides were very tasty.

Service was terrible. The waiters were not very receptive. I had to flag waiters/staff down multiple time for services. The entire meal took 2 hours from start to check. Unacceptable, especially when you don’t have waiters asking if you need drinks. The waiter did remove the burnt steak from the bill.

Upon leaving the restaurant, the valet tried charging $28 for parking when there was a sign posted earlier stating a $20.00 valet fee.

The icing on the cake was when I received a phone call from Mastro’s the following day inquiring about my experience. I told the staff member that it was an awful experience. She informed me that I should receive a call from management within the next 48 hours. 3 week later, I am still waiting for a call from management.

Very dissatisfied with the experience from Mastro's. I expected better.
