We celebrated our 40th Anniversary with our family and friends. Masraff's helped us make it elegant and friendly, accommodating our requests and planning.
Service - incredible. We requested Roberto to be our waiter in charge that night and he too was incredible. Everything was on time and super friendly, flawless.
Food - incredible, from the Hours d'oeuvres to Appetizers, Main Course and Desserts, all choices were super tasty.
Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
We are happy to recommend Masraff's for any occasion. We have eaten there prior and since, always great !

Aaron was our server. He was very polite and attentive. Pretty restaurant and not loud which was nice as I didn’t have to talk scream at my hubby. We got the Bibb chopped salad and Chilean SA bass both were very good. Fresh berries for dessert. Only complaint is the Pear martini was more like a Lime martini. This has nothing to do with Aaron as he offered to take it back. The description said Pear vodka with lime and I’m thinking a squeeze of lime. I’d like to see that get corrected either the name changed or make the pear martini taste like pear. Overall I would go back.

Food was outstanding! From appetizers through desserts - outstanding. We were having a conversation at the table comparing the food between State of Grace, Brennan's, Capital Grille, Café Annie and Fleming's. We agreed that Masraff's was best. Great ambiance too. And an outstanding waitstaff. And great wine list. Kudos.

We went for my husbands birthday and loved it, it is now his favorite place in the galleria as well. We drove an hour from north side to celebrate here. The calamari is my favorite anywhere!! Both the bar and restaurant side are amazing. We got our second fav lamb pops and ventured out to try the duck confit appetizer. My hubby doesn’t care for duck and it is now his favorite appetizer. He even liked the mushrooms which is unheard of for him. Their Cesar Salad is also our favorite. The relish they add to the egg sends it over the top. I would eat this every day!! the Bison Ribeye was a huge win for hubs on his day. The desserts are always as beautifully presented as they taste! They are all wins.

This is our favorite "go to place" when we want something special. We always request the wine room because of its intimate nature. The room was split due to a party and we were seated in the smaller room with four tables. Great people watching in a very intimate setting. Noise level was moderate. Eric was our server and he was a treat. good pacing on dinner and the swordfish special was fantastic -- as advertised.

I have had bison in no less than 25 places around the country. This was 10 times better than any place I have experienced!! Food was great; service was beyond our expectations!
My only reservation is we all and I mean everyone in the room was enjoying so much that it was loud. But can’t wait to go back and without hesitation recommend to all!!

The place has great atmosphere, and the service was impeccable. Very personable server. I had the shrimp ravioli, which wasn't my favorite dish that I ever got at Masraff's. I expected a little more Italian taste, and it wasn't memorable in a good way. It was nicely presented. But, I've had great dishes there and wonderful experiences. So the place is great. I'll just try another dish next time.

Food was fabulous. We celebrated a birthday for an employee and they brought out his desert with Happy Birthday written in chocolate! Great surprise! Would have liked just a little more attention from the waiter - we were ready to order deserts and it took 10 minutes for her to wait on us. Then ready to go and couldn't get her attention to bring the check - another 10 minutes. But, it was DEFNITELY worth the wait. Food was fabulous - oh yeah, I already said that! :-)

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and everything was fantastic. It was our first time here so we had no idea how it would turn out. However, from the moment we walked in to us getting up to leave, it was perfect. The staff was on top of everything. It is a pricey restaurant but totally worth it. We would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for a romantic dinner.

Masraff's menu offers a creative flourish on traditional Continental and American dishes. Always a treat. In addition to the dining room and bar area they have a patio for after dinner libations and a smoke. And they serve Nocello!

The food was delicious and the chef was very accommodating to my date, who had multiple food allergies. We ordered the calamari (delicious!) and the chef made it two different ways so we both could enjoy it. The sommelier, Thurston, did an amazing job as well. I can’t remember the last time I had wine that tasted that good straight out of the bottle. It paired very nicely to our meals. Great experience!

The whole experience of Masraff's was just OK. It wasn't terrible, but far from great. I think the menu was interesting and the plates appearance was nice but the quality and taste of the food was disappointing. From the Duck Confit Ravioli, to the flavorless red snapper to the 8oz Filet, this was not high end dining and we could have done as well at Outback Steakhouse for a quarter of the price. The service was efficient but too chatty and not what we preferred for a nicer dining experience. However, the Butter Roasted Pear Creme Brulee was excellent as well as the extensive wine list!

Masraff's is one of Houston's dining institutions and even with the proliferation of swank new restaurants in Houston, retains its place as one of the city's most eminent establishments in terms of decor, quality of cuisine and general atmosphere. The Post-Oak area where it is located has seen a lot of renewal in the past five years, yet Masraff's, which predated all that, sits snugly among the newbies as one of the shining lights of the area.

We hadn’t been to Masraff’s in a while but decided to venture back. We started with champagne (brut for him & brut rose for me - both fantastic!) then ordered a wonderful Pinot from the extensive wine list. It was hard to make food decisions because everything sounded so good. Finally we settled on a crab cake starter for me (unique flavors & so delicious!) & the soup of the day seafood stew for him. It was much like gumbo but had fish in it as well. He loved it! We both then opted for the snapper with orzo and it did not disappoint. We both loved it so much. We were way too full for desert but they had great choices. We will definitely be back!
