I have dined at Masraff’s for many years. One of the best privately owned restaurants in the city. I am going again next week. BTW, you ban go to any steak house in Houston and the best steak I have had out of all of them is Masraff’s! Also there lamb chops are exceptional!

It was our first time visiting Masraff's. We've heard alot about Masraff's, so I thought we would give it a try for ourselves. The overall experience was fair, from the moment we walked in, to the time we left. We waited a bit for a hostess to arrive and seat us. We were seated in the back corner right next to the kitchen in which an employee kept shouting in spanish as if he was giving orders while loud clanging dishes were drowning out the ambiance. Definitely not a pleasant experience. We ordered the "calamari" as an appetizer. It was certainly not your typical calamari. I'm still not sure what it was. My fries were under cooked and my bison ribeye steak seemed more like filet mignon. My suggestions, train your staff to ask if it's the customers first time to dine at Masraff's and please train them to not yell in the kitchen where customers can hear. Lastly, clearing of tables while still dining would be nice and ASK the customer if you would like the check split rather than putting the total all on one tab making it awkward for our parties to pay.

Overall great experience with delicious food and great service!
We had an initial "bump" by wanting to celebrate our anniversary but being seated next to a table of 12. However, they moved us to a more quiet table as soon as it became available. - Service is really very attentive and accommodating.
We were not completely taken by the Garlic Seared Calamari but the Crab Cake totally made up for it and the Stuffed Oysters are to die for. Also, our main courses were very good - especially appreciated the Quinoa-Jasmine-Rice-Risotto with beets that came with a filet of black grouper. Perfect finish of an excellent dinner was the Chocolate Fondant - Thanks at this point to our waiter for the recommendation!
We'll definitely be back and highly recommend to try the place!

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.

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! :-)
