I'm going to Mastro's this Friday evening (June 29, 2009). What are their best dishes?

    Bone-In ribeye! Bone-in filet! Chilean sea bass! Creamed corn! Crab gnocchi!

    (if you do get the fish, ask to NOT have it on a hot plate. Last time, the first bite was heaven but since it kept cooking on the hot plate, by the end, it was a little tough.)

    YUM!!! Lucky you!!

      I think their scalloped potatoes are wonderful.

        Their crab gnocchi and their signature warm butter cake are VERY good (and compelling enough for us to return for a second visit within a one week period).

          All I can say is VEAL VEAL VEAL. Mastro's has amazing veal. For a entree i'd go with veal milanese or a grilled veal chop. The chop might not be on the menu but they'll make it for you. The other amazing thing here is the gnocchi. Last week I had spinach gnocchi with veal bolognese which was to die for.

            i'm not really a fan of the food at Mastro's, so i can't recommend any dishes for you. i CAN, however, recommend that you double-check your reservation, because this Friday is the 26th, not the 29th...make sure you've actually got a table on Friday evening and not the following Monday!

              It was a typo, sorry about that!

              Bone-in filet. Bone-in ribeye. They're awesome.

                I've been happy with all their steaks, whether it be their New York, fillet, or porterhouse. I like my meat on the rare/med-rare side and they've always hit the mark in terms of doneness.

                For sides, the lobster mashed potatoes and sweet potato fries are great.

                  App: sauteed shrimp - succulent, well seasoned. (Really only for 1-2 people)
                  Entree: bone-in filet - moist, meaty goodness; double porterhouse - perfectly cooked, ideal if you'd like to die from a meat coma
                  Sides: sweet potato fries - sweet and crunchy

                  Entree - Live Maine Lobster - came out dry

                  Sides: shoestring fries if you have a minimum of 3-4 people to split it with. It's a huge portion and the salty, fried crunch gets old after a few bites
