I've done most of the big name steak houses here in So.Cal with one of the exceptions being Mastro's. Ordered the 33oz Rib-Eye Chop, the Lobster mashed potatoes and the Asparagus. For desert I had the Chocolate Sin Cake. All in all it was a nice cut of meat and a good meal. My only contention would be that I don't feel it was a $330 meal (2 people no alchohol) nor was service very impressive.

Here's a crappy cell phone photo of my steak.

So the waiter originally brings me a bill for $380. I look at and go dude, i'm a pig but I can't eat no $400 in food. $279 plus tip came to $329. Their is one drink on the tab, a Mojito, but I'd hardly call that drinking.

Thanks Kye! Definately like adding good places to my list of eateries.

Yikes, that's an outrageous bill especially sans alcohol and for lackluster service. Was the ribeye good at least?

I love Cut at the Wilshire Hotel. Wagyu beef is very good there.
Blair made the same comment about Cut when he came out earlier this year. We also ordered a Wagyu plate for our table when we went to Nobu's. I did enjoy it. Might have to try a whole steak.

You missed out on some nice watch shopping! Tomorrow we go old school, Tito's Taco's style. Talk about stand in line. :lol:


One thing worth mentioning were the oysters, I hadn't had some really good ones in a while. The Bluepoint oysters served at Mastro's were very good.
