We were celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary and my wife was celebrating her birthday. Masraff’s was a great experience, especially the waiter/server we had. Every recommendation from him was excellent. From the wine, to the desserts, to the main course. Excellent from start to finish. We look forward to coming here again.

We hadn’t been back to Masraff’s in a long time and discovered why. Frankly the food our party ordered was very good (chopped salads, Scallops, Lamb Chops, Sticky toffee pudding) and the service was what you’d expect of a restaurant of this caliber. Now the bad news, at least for us, the ambiance in this place is awful. You enter and it is like going into a long black tunnel with nothing attractive to look at. You first pass the bar, which is OK, but still can’t see the dining area. Once the dining area comes into view it is like “Oh NO”-it is stark, mostly black and I guess some gray, polyurethane coated table tops and a limited view of the kitchen. It just makes you feel like “Let’s eat quick and get out of here”. Why not some white table clothes to brighten things up, maybe a brightly colored accent wall or 2, etc. Obviously this is a personal thing and again the food was excellent, but once we sat down we realized why we hadn’t been back in a long time.

The crabcake was excellent but the burger had a very strange consistency and tasted very cheap in comparison to the rest of the restaurant. We’ve come for years and loved this place but it seems as though some quality has degraded.

Great food and really attentive waiter staff (three of them at a time would bring food and clear plates for a table of five). The portions are perfect to allow you to sample appetizers, entrees and desserts, and the wine list is very extensive. Would definitely recommend to others

Very nice foie gras, if you both like it, both order it. While the portion matched the price, both were less than other places. We had the bison rib eye—excellent.



Our waiter was excellent; waiter at next table got into a protracted discussion on why the guest DID NOT want his tuna cooked all the way through. He wasn’t wrong, but the guy is paying so give him what he wants...


I liked that most everyone was dressed up and there was a sense of panache. I do think it’s time for the restaurant to remodel the interior to a fresher look. My wife’s comment was the decor was a bit too like Luby’s.

Overall, they stay on our list of upscale Houston restaurants.

Wonderful date night!! We had a very attentive waiter who took pride in knowing everything about the menu items. Hubby had the pork tomahawk and I had the halibut - amazing food. The OWNER Tony Masraff came by every table in our section to check on us and chat. He is the sweetest person and takes great pride in his restaurant! We will be coming back to try other items and support a restaurant that treats their patrons like family!! Kudos Tony - you have a fantastic establishment!!!

All around delightful evening. Extensive wine list at all price points. Note that the actual menu may be different than the online menu, because they use the best available fresh ingredients. Perfect ambiance - not too loud like so many other restaurants where you cannot hear your dinner partner speak - but a nice buzz. You feel valued - the owner stopped by our table to say hello. (I'm from NYC - I know from good restaurants, as we would say up north.). Masraff's? Go!!

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu items, and dealt with two different food allergies with concern and accurate information.
We had a great evening!

Everything was great. Had a table in the bar area, much quieter than the large dining room. Service was
excellent. Food was a little spicier than presented on the menu. Desert was outstanding. Great date night environment.

Service was great, food was so so for the price. Lacked flavor. The crab cake appetizer was the best thing. The wine list is extensive as they say - but the mark up on wine is insane. I know wine and I know what traditional mark up is and this is excessive.
For the food (entrees) not being any better than a chain restaurant I'd steer clear and find somewhere else to go.

Menu was decent, however, do not use the internet menu as a guide. There was a limited selection. Wine menu had a huge variety for bottles but limited glass selection. I would go back but not a favorite for a special occasion.

We love this place! My wife and my birthday's are one day apart and we scheduled our "birthday day dinner" at Masraff's. We were welcomed with a "happy birthday" and shown to our table. Our server knew it was a special day as well. Food and service were great as usual. We had desserts at home so passed on the offering. However, our server still provided us with "hot donuts" and bon-bons. You bet we will be back and we won't be waiting a whole year.
