Has any good restaurant ever improved after being acquired by a mega-corporation such as Landry's or Darden?

I have just read that one of my favorite steakhouses Mastro's, has been acquired by Landry's. I can't help thinking that this is bad news for those of us who have enjoyed Mastro's. McCormick & Schmick was pretty decent until taken over by Landry's, but now has seriously declined. I can think f other decent restaurants that have gone the same route after being acquired by Darden's (Eddie V's in La Jolla for one). Is there any reasonable hope that a good restaurant such as Mastro's could actually improve, or even stay the same, or is it inevitable that once acquired by one of these mega-corps it's all downhill?
