A wonderful dinner - staff,A wonderful dinner - staff, food and wine were perfect.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerThe menu at Masraff's is extremely good and the food is excellent. Good service, good wine and a very good experience all round. The dining room is a little noisy, though not more so than many places these days, but would not be the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two !6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful helpfulgreat food and wine list. very good and attentive waiter. 2 ladies on a business dinner. excellent overall.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth food and services wereBoth food and services were excellent, I particularly liked the fact that we were not made to feel hurried during the services. The restaurant's layout with separation of bar and dining spaces and appropriate use of partitions resulted in comfortable noise levels which always contributes to my enjoyment of a dining experience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodAs always, food and service were excellent. All special requests were honored graciously and expediently.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably consistentgreat food, great service, we love this place - we seem to get personal service each time - food is worth the visit, great bar, good cocktails.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTony's Tony RestaurantWe had a fabulous dinner. Tony Masraff, the owner, was overseeing the whole restaurant the entire time we were eating Saturday evening. That sort of attention to operations by the owner has a very positive impact on everything.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place never fails to pleaseYou can always tell when a restaurant is run by a family. It is personal; there is a sense of pride that permeates the place. Masraff's is one of those places. They pay attention to what YOU are looking for and not what hey want to give (sell) you. The staff is professional yet friendly and un-presupposing. Tony Masraff will usually come by the check on you, but he never seems to be intruding. (Many restaurants miss the boat in this regard and make you feel like it's a task they have to check off the list.)
The food is outstanding. It is not experimental or edgy, just made with care and attention to detail. The atmosphere is romatic, convivial, comfortable yet keeps you aware that you are "out to dinner"5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat. Period.Had a great meal with great service. Food here is top notch. Wine list is is extensive.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal - Great ServiceGreat place for business lunch in Galleraia area. Attentive service, but not overbearing. Creative menu with great specials. Good food that won't break the bank - All in a cool contemporay space.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsThis is not my first trip to Masraff's and it certainly will not be my last. The food and ambieance cannot be beat! Our server was impecable and offered great suggestions.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysMasraffs is a place I love to dine at frequently. The food is always delicious. I have never had anything bad and I keep coming back for the same calamari appetizer. Its the best thing ever.
The service is always good, the wait staff is professional and kind, and I love that the owner Mr Masraff almost always comes out to greet his guests.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best in HoustonIf you want to be spoiled and have a great dinner evening there is only one choice in Houston. Masraff's is family owned and operated by Tony and son Russell. You will be treated like an elite guest from the moment you hand your car over to the valet.
The bar is a great place to relax after work....have a glass of wine or drink with one of the best bar menus I have ever seen.
Secret- have olives with bread and butter with a glass of wine....
Masraff's menu has something for everyone and the chef will "tweak" to your order to your personal request although why would you change perfection.
I will return early and often.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest pork chopCelebrated a few friends birthdays. Fabulous dinner and service. Every detail taken care by Kenny. Owner recommended pork chop.

The staff from the bus boys to the ownership are there to make sure that everything is done to your satisfaction. Highly recommend Masfaff's.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and foodMasraff is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. The food and service is always excellent and the wine list extensive. We came for girl's night out and every single dish that we ordered among the five of us was superb.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceThis was my first time here. The food and service were both great. Will definitely be back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelent service; good food; noisyOur server was excellent. Food was very good. But we suffered from a typical problem for us in Houston: too noisy to have a conversation without a lot of effort. Do restaurant designers and owners really think that noisy makes for a better experience because they believe it induces a sense of energy and enthusiasm? How about allowing that some diners like to feel they enjoyed conversation? Especially in this case where it was for a business meal. Overall ok but not great value considering as well the price.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMasraff's is always a safeMasraff's is always a safe bet. Great good, great service, great ambiance.
Have been there many times and will keep coming back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good. The serviceThe food was good. The service was excellent.

Service was stellar and the food was of highest quality in every way. One of us requested an item that was not on the menu and the chef graciously provided a special meal for her. The Bone-In Pork Chop with red cabbage and mashed potatoes was a perfect meal. The marinated pineapple flavor complimented the pork perfectly for a memorable dish that I will order again in teh future. The Friend Banana Split was fun and delicious. Service could not have been better.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved everything I triedI loved everything I tried at the restaurant.

The wines by the glass were thoughtfully selected and were excellent. No oxidation on any of the wines (like many restaurants).4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOpt out of the Cous CousSade sings, " ..it is never as good as the first time." While I enjoyed my meal, I recall the food being perfectly seasoned during my first visit. This time the cous cous was extremely forgettable. I wish I had followed my first-mind and asked for a substitution. Oh, well ...4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMmerveilleux!meraviglioso!wunderbar!It was our first visit to Masraff's and we enjoyed it to the fullest. The food was great, service - impeccable. At first when I heard all the folks in the bar area - i thought that is was way too loud. But then the restaurant was much quieter and even when full - noise was not a problem. Wine selection is impressive, desserts are pretty good, even if not to die for :) From our experience - which is quire subjective - Le Mistral had desserts a bit better, while the food was on par or even better than that at the Le Mistral (Eldridge location). Out daughter enjoyed herself and was unusually polite when the restaurant's owner stopped by our table to talk to us briefly :)4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic evening with excellentFantastic evening with excellent drinks and food! Was at a business function and they allowed us to stay late to finish our presentation. Owner Tony Masraff showed my wife all the fantastic paintings on display. Highly reccomended!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMasraff's offers top classMasraff's offers top class service and excellent, high quality food, with inspired preparation.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, the food and serviceAs usual, the food and service were exceptional. This is one spot where we can always be assured of a great experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!My husband and I had never been here before, but immediately we were very impressed. The staff treated us like royalty the entire night and we had one of our best meals ever here. The grilled calamari is outstanding with a light, beautiful sauce that we couldn't get enough of. The seared tuna was also so amazing. Excellent salads as well. We will be back often and highly recommend dining here.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly the BestMy wife & I chose Mazraff's to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I made a special request to be accomodated with prime seating & where they sat us was perfect for the evening & gift presentation I had planned. I arrived early & was attended to very well. Once my wife arrived, I asked if we could spend some time in the bar so that she could decompress from her very hectic day. It was not an issue. I had coat checked her anniversary gift & about halfway thru dinner, the waiter brought her gift at my request. The pace, ambience & graciousness of the staff was impeccable. When a member of the Mazraff's came to our table & introduced himself to us, that was a considerate gesture. The Bison Ribeye? Out of this world.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNormally we would not bringNormally we would not bring our 11 and 16 year old children here but did for Easter lunch. There was a nice crowd, the prix fixed lunch menu featured interesting and good selections and pairings from one course to the other. The food was excellent, the dessert was really good and our service was fabulous. We were so pleased with everything, Masraff's really made our Easter lunch special.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat we liked was the constantWhat we liked was the constant presence of the Managers, monitoring the staff performance and occasionally stopping at each table wondering about their guests satisfaction. The Chef too made a tour of all tables....3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Little off Food QualityDisappointed in the food quality this time. Have been here before and loved the food, but this was not quite up to my standards.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOk but not worth the money.We had Easter brunch at Masraff's. We ate at the last shift of the day. They had a set menu for $48 pp. You could choose one appetizer, one main course and one dessert. They offered a good variety of options. Our waiter was superb. He was prompt, made excellent recommendations and was great at knowing when to approach us/leave us alone. The food was just OK- Nothing stood out. The flavors were rather one note. They sounded complex but lacked a POP. We are foodies and have high standards however, when I go for a $48 brunch, I expect more (especially with a limited menu where the expectation is that they have totally mastered the dishes). Presentation was lovely. With so many great choices in Houston why return for mediocre?3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal I have had in a long timeBest meal I have had in a very long time! We had an excellent experience all around.The pace was perfect. My wife and I were dining with another couple. They seated us promptly, got us our drinks and then let us sit and talk. After a while they offered us menus. The waiter had great suggestions without being pushy or selling. Everyone’s appetizers were excellent. In the right amount of time dinner came. I had the tuna, it was perfect and just the right amount. We all had deserts.We ended up spending several hours, sharing two bottles of fine red wine and full meals. The staff was there when we needed them, but didn’t rush us. We will go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWith its modern, hip atmosphere,With its modern, hip atmosphere, Masraff's is a great place to take guests. The waiters are fun and involved in food selection.

Staff is really attentive, too! Always a pleasure. Always great food.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Class. The staff wasFirst Class. The staff was very attentive to details without being overbearing.

I had the Hawaiian monchong and my wife had the duck breast. Both were excellent. Service was attentive and our server had a thorough knowledge of the wines by the glass, which was nice. Price for quality of food, service, location, and ambience is very reasonable. Would highly recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
