  • Unimpressive Birthday Dinner

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I have been told by many to go to this restaurant. It was a great experience all around. However, the price is high, and we didn't leave full, but satisfied. Every item we chose off the preselected menu was very tasty. we enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely return, but probably only for special occasions. Price is the only draw back in relation to quantity of food on plate. However, staff very knowledgeable with menu items, and provided great recommendations on the foods we questioned. The owner walks table to table asking about your experience. Definitely the best service I have received thus far at any restaurant we have gone to. I love the environment, the staff and the food was very good.

    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.

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.
