  • Very Good Fish
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We had the restaurant week special. One order of seared Big Eye Tuna served with Divers Scallops and one order of Hawaiian Swordfish. Both were excellent, however, one piece of the swordfish was under cooked. The waiter immediately removed my plate and returned with a fresh plate that was properly cooked. Also, the owner came to the table to insure that I was satisfied. Fish can be difficult to prepare. Too long and it will be dry and not enough and it will be difficult to cut or chew. I thought the fish was excellent and the serice took care of the preparation error with aplomb.

    My wife and I enjoyed an outstanding dining experience for our 17th wedding anniversary. I noted in our open table reservation that dinner was a celebration of our anniversary and both the hostess and waiter helped make the evening feel extra special. We ordered off of the Restaurant Week menu and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the calamari appetizer (like having dessert before dinner), the seared diver scallops and the lamb. The chocolate fondant (and exceptional decaf) was a great way to cap it off. Tony Masraff took the time to visit every table to make sure everything was just right, definitely a nice touch.

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!

    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.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    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 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!

    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.

    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.
