Probably my favorite in both LA and Vegas! Delicious---you just cannot go wrong. DO NOT go there if you want to go our afterwards---been there done that, you just want to go back to your hotel and laze around. This is NOT light food but incredibly delicious!

My first time dining at this particular Mastro's and they did not disappoint. It was restaurant week but our group went and ordered our own stuff anyways. Yeah, this's place is that good hahha
Pretzel Bread - like a soft, warm, perfectly salted pretzel.
Lobster Mash - delish
Mushrooms - I love these tasty mushrooms
Spinach - not a big fan of spinach but Mastro's does it right
12 oz bone in filet - cooked just right. Med rare and awesome
Service: Great. Attentive and courteous. My friend couldn't finish his 22oz rib eye and asked to take the rest to go. They accidentally tossed it but went out of their way to make up for it. Our group was dressed casually and I can imagine some lesser establishments not giving us this type of great service based just on this alone.

Knowing that the restaurant is located in Crystals--a shopping arcade (mall is far too down-market to describe this place) featuring Tiffany, Cartier, and LV--I had a feeling this would be an expensive celebration, and it was, but well worth it.
Our table in the treehouse wasn't ready when we arrived, so we sat at the bar and ordered a drink. I thought I was prepared for Vegas prices, but I was wrong. Martinis that cost $18?! But when in Rome ...
As our bartender raised the shaker to pour the martini into the oversize martini glass, I noticed that the cocktail shaker itself was bigger than a regular shaker. That's right, we got about 2.5 generous martinis out of that one shaker. Unfortunately, we'd each ordered a martini, which is why the rest of my review will be a bit vague.
This Mastro's features a variety of seafood, and you can create your own seafood tower appetizer, even if it's only for one. We passed on a seafood appetizer and ordered a very good Caesar salad, followed by a bone-in rib eye for him and a bone-in filet mignon for me. Our waitress also sold us on the lobster mashed potatoes--1 1/4 pounds of lobster chunks folded into buttery mashies--so we enjoyed some seafood too.
Between the monster martini and the addictive pretzel bread (soft with a slightly chewy exterior, sprinkled with salt), I had a hard time saving room for the entree and ended up taking half of it home. But it was one of the best filets I've ever had. Although I love the tenderness of filet mignon, I typically prefer the flavor of a rib eye. Both were excellent, even as leftovers. Unfortunatley we'd filled up on the pretzel bread, so we didn't have room for the famous warm butter cake dessert.
But on my second trip, I had a plan: share a martini and save room for dessert.
This cake, alone, is worth 5 stars! The warm butter cake portion was more than enough for the three of us, served with a drizzle of berry coulis, sliced strawberries, a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top, and, in a separate bowl, enough whipped cream to frost a double-layer cake.
My first spoonful filled my mouth with warm brown sugar-sweet goodness, with the cake texture somewhere between a Genoise and a pound cake. The cake was wonderful on its own but we couldn't help but top our tastes with the whipped cream. We were so full from our meals (most likely due to that extra order of pretzel rolls) that, sadly, we couldn't quite finish the warm butter cake.

I've eaten here once, during CES 2011. Observations:
- Beautiful setting that you wouldn't expect given the restaurant is located in a shopping complex.
- Great service that has an old-fashioned and formal feel to it.
- Ordered four sides dishes, all of them delicious. In fact, if I was only rating the sides, five out of five stars.
- The rib-eye was quite good, although I prefer the rib-eye at Ruth's Chris (maybe that's weird). I almost always order my steak medium-rare but it's pretty bloody at Mastro's so you may want to consider medium.
- The terrace/bar area is quite crowded (people and tables) so dine in the tree house area -- it's roomier and architecturally stunning.
- There's a piano player playing on a grand piano.
