Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I haven't been out for a nice romantic dinner in ages. It was nice to get dressed up to go into town and our dress matched the restaurant. It was very uptown and modern. The service was great and the food was better! As an added treat the owner came around and greeted guests. Loved it!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Masraff's for a nice, romantic dinner on a Friday night. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. We were initially seated outside in their side patio which was right off the bar and which was attired with patio seating...definitely not the romantic dinner we were expecting. My boyfriend went back up to the hostess stand and politely asked if we could be seated elsewhere. The hostess sat us in a much nicer location where there were multiple other open tables showing that they were not so busy as to have sat us in the only available location. While the rest of the dinner turned out nice, this definitely set an overtone to the evening. We will likely not return."

  • "The grilled calamari is amazing! I really enjoyed having Mr. Masraff great us - twice. A great restaurant is always further enhanced by a personal connection. Nice touch by a very classy gentleman."

  • "There are about 5 choices for each category: appetizers, entrees, and desserts. We had risotto, bacon wrapped quail breast, garlic seared calamari for appetizers. Off the menu the chef also added another entree: soft-shell crab tempura style served with various vegetables like that were offered with chicken breast. My husband did not like it. The tempura breading was very thick and the crab wasn't delicious. The other entrees: porcini laced Hawaiian swordfish (shutomi) and diver scallops with Hawaiian big eye tuna were absolutely well-done. Everything is cooked to perfection. For dessert we liked chocolate fondant and hot mini doughnuts. Overall we liked everything except the soft-shell crab. Service was attentive. We were very pleased."

  • "Food and service were outstanding. Gumbo was a great appetizer. Lamb chops were great as usual. First time had soft shell crab tempura - it was wonderful. Wine list extensive. Our server Chase was very attentive and friendly. He helped make the experience memorable. Will be back!"

  • "Our server Kimberly was awesome - she was very well-versed on not only the menu but also made excellent wine recommendations! The owner Tony Masraff also came over and greeted us personally at our table. The food was divine and the atmosphere beautiful and perfect for a romantic dinner! I will definitely return for another dining experience at Masraff's!"

  • "I can't say enough good things about the restaurant. The food was great as was the service. You aren't rushed but you are not ignored. The owner stops by just to make sure everything is good. Definitely a winner."

  • "We went here for restaurant weeks and were blown away. The food was delicious and the portions were a good size. We all left full and very satisfied. We definitely want to come back again and try their full menu."

  • "The overall experience, from the service to the food was just excellent. However, if you don't like being around people who just want to be seen at a nice place to show off, you may get turned off walking in the door. But honestly, if you are that kind of person, I would still recommend you time to try this place at an off peak time because it is that good."

  • "Don't let the strip center bland exterior put you off, because the interior opens up to a top-class dining experience. We were pleased to be in the wine room, much quieter than the buzzing main area. Our server (Hugh?) was very polished and professional. After checking the HRW menu, we were quite happy with the Food Bank-aiding selections and traded tastes. The calamari provided a delicate but bright contrast to the bacon/quail/poblano richness. We loved the duet of perfectly cooked scallops and ahi. The rack of lamb surprised us with its unassuming looking accompaniment, a sort of potato and mushroom hash that had great earthy flavor. HRW is a great way to find new favorites, and we're putting Masraff's on the list."

  • "Since I choose Masraff's for our 38 anniversary celebration I would have liked a table that was a bit more secluded, i.e. - not in the bar packed with people ???? That was a bit disappointing."

  • "Are 3 times already. Spend $150 with my wife this night, foods were okay, we both got stomach ache and dia....... $150 for dinner, $3 for medicine, staying up with your wife thinking about life- priceless"

  • "We went to Masraff's for HRW. The calamari appetizer is amazing and the risotto du jour (spinach/tomato/bacon on this day) was also excellent. Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and the crispy potato/mushroom mixture that came with it was the ideal accompaniment. Dessert resembled beignets (they were tagged as mini donuts, cooked to order) and was fried dough rolled in cinnamon-sugar...tough to go wrong there. They were executed properly and weren't overly greasy...if there had been a fruit sauce of some sort, these would have been perfect. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Water was always full, bread basket was a nice touch, and upon entering the restaurant there were tons of people to welcome us. All around great experience!"

  • "I chose Masraff's to celebrate my birthday dinner, and I could not have chosen better! The Houston Restaurant Weeks menu was incredible. The worst part of dinner was having to choose what to order; everything sounded incredible! I had the squid appetizer and Hawaiian swordfish entree. My date chose the risotto du jour (bacon and tomato) and the filet mignon. For dessert we selected the mini doughnuts (beignets) and the chocolate fondant. Then our waitress surprised us with her favorite, a cranberry bread pudding, as a birthday treat on the house. We ate EVERY BITE of our dinner, save two small pieces of bread in the basket. Our reasonably priced Spanish wine ($35 bottle) was excellent and complimented the entire menu. An incredible evening!"

  • "Tried the restaurant as it was participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks. The menu options were wonderful - our party of 4 was very happy with the meal."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We came for the Houston Restaurant Week menu and were very pleased with the food and service. We did notice, however, that all the people in the little room where we were seated were ordering off the HRW menu as well, so we felt somewhat isolated from the true experience of the restaurant itself. The room felt hot when we walked in, but when we mentioned it to our waiter it seemed to cool down somewhat. We did appreciate Tony himself coming around to each individual table to ask how our dinner was----that was a nice touch. Other than that, we would probably recommend and return again."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We were excited to dine at Masraff's and sadly it started off with Hostesses with very unwelcoming attitudes. They initially tried to seat us on the patio in front of a large fan blowing on the table which was more like a taqueria atmosphere. When asked for another table, the lead hostess showed even more of an attitude for inconveniencing her. Once seated by the kitchen, it took some time to get our meal and attention for refills. The owner was pleasant to visit each table but it was hard to overcome the hostesses. There are plenty of other restaurants whose welcome is far more inviting."

  • "Had limited time due to theater tickets. Waiter saw to it that our time requirements were met. Great food and service. It was also the month that restaurants in Houston support the Houston Food Bank by sharing part of its proceeds with the Food Bank. Knowing the restaurant was participating in that program was a plus."

  • "My husband and I went here for my birthday. It was an excellent dining experience. The owner, Tony Masraff walked around the restaurant greeting everyone. At one point he walked over to the window ave helped a waiter with the window shade. He did all of his in a sling. The quality of the food is enough to make me want to return, but the excellent service and personal touch has made Masraff's my new favorite restaurant in the Galleria."

  • "we enjoyed our dinner in the wine cellar although each room is beautiful--the service is great (wish I had asked the name of our waiter as he was super). The food is delicious in lovely surroundings-we did the Restaurant week menu and all of us were pleased-especially the dessert of chocolate a real winner--but all had great food and all dishes prepared to the correct temperature ordered-another kudo to the kitchen and our lovely waiter-we will go again and soon. another nice touch is the complementary parking-I just love this feature-and the owner comes by to check-al l in all a great evening"

  • "The food and service are always exceptional, and I never leave there feeling disappointed or hungry. My only issue was the Hawaiian swordfish was a bit overcooked this time, which is very unusual for Masraff because I've eaten numerous seafood and fish dishes there and they have always been perfectly cook. Everything else we had was perfect."

  • "The food was absolutely delicious. The calamari is not your usual fried and crispy variety but a sort of asian inspired flavor- great! Our server was very friendly and attentive, but not overly so. Make sure you try the strawberry meringue for desert- it melts in your mouth and was to die for."

  • "I've been three times. I work at St Martin's and we had an office gathering with drinks and a variety appetizers and each one was amazing! I took 5 co-works to lunch the last two times. One, we all had the delicious salads. I had the special the last time...the Dore fish. Each bite was so delicious and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I had a cappuccino and pear crème brulee."
