Mastros Ocean Club

35. Mastro's Ocean Club

Critics would be hard-pressed to find a more glamorous dining experience than Mastro's Ocean Club in Scottsdale's Kierland Commons. Plush decorated chairs fill each linen-draped table, colored glass liquor bottles glimmer at the bar, splendid modern chandeliers hang from the patterned ceiling and stone work surrounds the entire dining room in this elaborately designed building. Decadent seafood, both traditional and sushi-styled dishes, are served here as well as a prime selection of steaks and chops.  Some entrees are given an unexpected twist. Vanilla-battered twin lobster tails, Alaskan king crab black truffle gnocchi, and gorgonzola mac & cheese are some of the more unique dishes on the typically classic upscale menu.  The restaurant also possesses a large collection of alcoholic beverages, pouring specialty cocktails, craft beer and wine. Private dining is available though it is best to reserve a table whether you intend to eat privately or in the main dining room.
