Diner Reviews
  • "With our anniversary on a weeknight we decided to celebrate simply with a dinner and with it being Houston Restaurant Week we searched for a place we had not tried. Masraff's fit the bill! The food was nothing short of amazing. Such imaginative blends of flavors. The service was excellent and attentive. Overall a wonderful anniversary dining experience!"

  • "We went for Restaurant Month. We chose to go there because their menu offered several and varied choices for our group of 6. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered, and we shared "bites" so we could all get a taste of different things. All excellent. The waiter was great about suggesting wine. He started with a rather expensive choice, but when we asked for a more "budget-friendly" option he asked a few questions about our preferences and then made a great choice for us. We had 3 bottles!"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our HRW 2014 dinner here! Service was impeccable, and the food was amazing! I had the signature calamari dish (not to be missed!), the tuna and scallop duet, and the creme de caramel. All were outstanding! My husband had the bacon-wrapped quail, the lamb chops, and sorbet trio - I tasted all, of course, and they were wonderful as well. We will definitely keep Masraff's on our list of "go-to" restaurants for special date nights!"

  • "Masraff's is fine dining-dishes are rich and sauced in a classic way-a very nice experience-on eof the owners always around to check on things--décor outstanding wine cellar is the best place to be seated--quieter--but look around as the décor is breath taking--the valet service is especially attentive--well done evening.."

  • "New to Houston so chose as was close to apartment. Hadn't realised was HRW so nice bonus with that though understandably very busy. Food was out of this world and went off the servers recommendation. She was totally on the mark! Delish! And she was great too really nice and helpful! And charming too!"

  • "My friends and I have tried most of the dishes provided on restaurant weeks. Seafood dishes were very impressive, and the lamb was not bad either. They mixed up gin and bourbon in our cocktails, which tastes special but not delightful. The waiter was a little awkward that he checked on us by peeking around rather than asking. Overall we had a good time, and would like to know how it's like on a regular day compare to busy restaurant weeks."

  • "For what will be our last trip to Houston before moving out-of-state, Masraff's was our no-brainer choice. The wild mushroom ravioli was--as always--outstanding. My wife's salmon was cooked exactly as she requested; my bison ribeye was perfectly medium rare. The wine list is a delight to explore and led us to discover a new (to us) malbec."

  • "We went to Masraff's recently to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant was busy, active, and loud - a far cry from the intimate, romantic place I remembered when I visited their former location. The food was good, but not anything I would rave about, especially given the abundance of fancy, expensive establishments throughout Houston. Little attention was paid to my wife's special occasion, aside from an obligatory candle placed in her dessert. Although the atmosphere was more "exciting," it was not what I had anticipated. Probably won't be going back."

  • "My dinner dates was fun! We're all ordered three courses meal to support houston restaurant weekend. Seafood risotto was delicious. For main course I had lamb chops, it was awesome, very flavorful, great seasoning. And for dessert, I had warm chocolate fondant with vanilla ice Cream. Mr. Tony himself visited us at the table. FANTASTIC overall!"

  • "Everything was very inventive, creative & delicious. Perfectly cooked lamb, as requested. The grilled calamari is worth a detour ! I will definitely be returning. It was very crowded but the service was up to the challenge. Wine steward was particularly helpful."

  • "My husband and I dined at Masraff's for our 19th Wedding Anniversary. The food was outstanding! We both had calamari as an appetizer and agreed was the best that we've had anywhere. I ordered the filet ( so tender that it almost melted in your mouth) and my husband had the lamb which was delicious as well. The portion sizes were very generous so by the time we got the creme brûlée as dessert , we were almost full (no complaints; rare problem to have at a restaurant). It was our anniversary. Our server surprised us with a divine chocolate dessert with ice cream and on the plate was written in chocolate the words "Happy Anniversary ". We were touched and thought it was such a sweet and kind gesture. We will be returning back!"

  • "I hosted some friends from Atlanta for Houston Restaurant Month at Masraffs. The food selection was great and every course was perfect. Great taste, great presentation and good timing between courses. Highly recommend. The owner even stopped by our table to thank us for coming and dinning with them. Not too often you hear that these days!"

  • "Not too uptight and yet great service. I could see going there with a group of people and really enjoying it, or on a romantic date. The steak was absolutely wonderful although slightly salty (which I like), and the rest of the food was put together very well. The menu was not innovative because it is not that type of place, but they do classic food well."

  • "Thank you Masraff's and thank you to Tracey or our outstanding meal and service. We had a perfect evening."

  • "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."

  • "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."

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!"

  • "My wife and I make it a point to visit new places during Restaurants Week. We had not been to Masraff's in some years. It was wonderful. The food was outstanding. The service was fast and friendly. The place was packed, but somehow they still managed to keep the food standards at some REALLY high level. Of a half a dozen places we have visited during Restaurants Week this is the one we talk about and the one to which we will return. It you have not been... or its been a while. Go. You won't be disappointed."

    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "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."
