Maestro's - first visit tomorrow night - any first-timer tips for me?

I'm finally headed to Maestro's BH for the first time tomorrow night (hubby's bday). Would love any tips or recommendations. I plan to order the bone-in rib eye, based on the historic raves.

Any other tips and/or suggestions from recent / regular diners is appreciated.

Also - is there any particular table I should ask for?

        I could live on the butter cake, seafood tower and the lobster mashed potatoes.

            Why is upstairs better than downstairs?

              Don't know that it is. It's more a bar scene.

                I like upstairs because it has windows...downstairs dining room seems more like a banquet hall to me. The piano is in the bar - would recommend a table not in the bar.

          2. Sit upstairs. Bone in is a great choice. Sea food tower is great. Fantastic Onion Rings. Order them well done and hot. Very good martini.

            1. You'll have a great time! I would HIGHLY suggest the Crab Cocktail appetizer (the best crab I've ever had in California!) and the creamed corn.
