    Amazing food, amazing wine list, very nice servers. A bit slow in bringing out our menus, which was probably due to us being indesicive about which champagne to get to celebrate my birthday but other than that it was a great experience. Must try's are the calamari, jumbo crab cake, herb roasted lamb and the mini donuts. Definitely coming back!

    My wife & I were blown away at this restaurant experience. I, personally, have travelled the world during my military term, but I honestly had given up on what I see on TV that restaurants should be like. Upon pulling up Masraff's, we were greeted by complimentary valet parking & escorted through the door to the front desk where we were then seated immediately. I had no problems w/my reservation. I was absolutely blown away w/the waiter that was extremely knowledgeable of the menu & wordage. He explained everything for my wife, who was not accustomed to this type of dining experience. We were given complimentary tastings of the scratch-made cream of mushroom soup...OUTSTANDING! The food was filling & a reason to return. AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

    Our waiter was condescending in describing some of the items. He assumed we did not know the proper doneness for duck breast or tuna (it was the way he said it not that it isn't worth warning people of the doneness). My duck leg was a bit tough and I did not like the taste of the peas in the dish (trio of foie gras, duck breast, and duck leg) and the dish lacked a little salt. My husband's scallops looked beautiful and the tuna as well. Our appetizers were nice: ravioli and spinach salad (but the salad was very small).

    Dining at this restaurant means great food and great service. There are very few restaurants in Houston where one can dine and not have to shout to hear other table guests. While this restaurant was not totally filled to capacity on the week night we were there, it was definitely busy. Even so, our guests and we could carry on a meaningful conversation without feeling like we were at a too-fussy senior crowd place. It is elegant and the food is excellent. We also loved the former location and this one is definitely steps above that.

    We've dined at Masraff's since the old days on Post Oak Lane, and the food and service have always been outstanding. We recently enjoyed apps of the garlic-seared calamari and the wild mushroom ravioli, both of which are simply incredible. Our mains were the lamb chops and the halibut. (Not being a fan of Brussels sprouts, I asked for a substitution of the John Dory sides, done with no problem, and absolutely delicious.) The fried banana split was also very good. There were a couple of outstanding wines by the glass available.

    Restaurant locale is good. Service is a little too intrusive for my taste....I dont want my conversation constantly interrupted to speak to a waiter. Waiter unfortunately got the dessert order wrong, staff suitably apologetic, but it wasnt an insignificant issue and could not be rectified. Recommended lamb dish was not particularly good....dont think rare to medium rare is a good choice for lamb. Relatively expensive and in my opinion not worth the extra premium compared to other good restaurants in Houston.

    I planned this outing to get a fancy food fix for me and my boyfriend who are both foodies. The boyfriend is not a super fan of seafood, but when it's prepared well, he likes it just as much as his other food. He ordered the seabass and I ordered the duet of tuna and scallops. The scallops weren't seared, they tasted more like boiled which is such a shame to do to scallops. The tuna was rare and delicious. The seabass left much to be desired in terms of flavor. The flavor on the tuna/scallops dish was good but the scallops were the main draw for me and they were underwhelming. For such a special occasion, the food was disappointing. The ambiance and wine were beautiful though.

    My wife and I were attending a medical conference near Galleria. We saw the great reviews and made the short drive to Masraff's. The experience was even better than the reviews. Service was personal and effusive. Food was amazing and well worth the price. Wine list was exceptional. We almost forgot we were in town on business.

    Whoever designed this restaurant clearly has a penchant for inexpensive business hotel lobby restaurants and Chinese noodle shops from the 90's. The food was very run of the mill and should not be confused with fine dining. The service was lackluster to say the least . We were brought a selection of vegetables that bore no resemblance to those we had been promised. One of the desserts was just simply not what we ordered at all. ( although it tasted good). The staff were friendly but a little "absent". Total miss , not worth expending a hall pass on.

    My wife and I wanted to try someplace new for our anniversary and made a random pick based on reviews and menu items, choosing Masraff's. We were impressed with the atmosphere, service, and food and that the staff actually read the note on the online RSVP and wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plates or our desserts. Our waiter, David, was very attentive and personable and the meal was unrushed and delicious.

    The owner came by and thanked us for our patronage in a very genuine way, which I thought was a really nice touch. The waiter though was hot and cold, first wanting to take our orders right after we sat down, then disappearing for a while when we were ready. Then it took a while to find him when we were ready to pay and go, which is not ideal for lunch. The food is very good and creatively prepared. As my guest noted, they did not skimp on the crab meat on the salad. It is perfectly complemented with the mango and white balsamic dressing. His special was an interesting layering of their signature risotto, then a perfectly cooked fish, with frisee on top.

    Went to the restaurant from a list of recommended ones from our hotel during a recent visit to Houston. The atmosphere was very nice, we actually sat in the lounge area which had a much better view and was surprisingly quieter. The food was exceptional from my lamb chops, my husbands steak with a mushroom reduction and my daughter's chicken dish. All were presented beautifully and tasted better. Will return when in Houston.

    Masraff's was recommended. The entire experience was fantastic. The wait staff was efficient and had a great sense of humor. His recommendations were spot on. The owner stopped by our table and thanked us for dining with him- that added a very personal touch that you don't see very much anymore. The food was absolutely amazing and the portions were perfect. 2 of us had the salmon and it was (as the waiter said) one of the best salmon dishes we had ever tasted. Prices were reasonable and added to the overall satisfaction of the experience. Well done Masraff's. We will be back.

    I took some clients to this restaurant for an important business discussion. Unfortunately we ended up intermittently yelling across the table, while also not trying to speak too loudly for everyone to hear. Everyone's food came out perfect and the staff was on point, but I would not recommend taking someone here that plans on being able to easily understand what other people at the table are saying without raising their voice.

    It has been sometime since I have been to Masraff's. I recently met a friend for lunch. We typically have a fun cocktail when we lunch. We arrived before noon and were advised Masraff's didn't have a bartender who could make the drinks on the drink menu. Shortly before noon, we were served the drink we ordered, but it was clear the bartender who made it was not qualified to do so. Even our food service was spotty, not what I expect or have experienced from previous Maraff's visits. Our food was delicious, the chicken lime soup and salads (crab avacado and tempura yellow tomato) we ordered made our visit successful. I will return, but hope for better service, both food and bar.

    Tony Masraff's restaurant is by far one of the best in Houston. The space is sophisticated, the waitstaff is totally professional, the food is incredible. There is nothing NOT to like about it. Mr. Masraff is always visable and stops by briefly to say hello and to thank patrons for dining there. If you want a fine dining experience, this is one you don't want to miss.
