MF is by far the best sushi place in Houston, and probably one of the best in the US, it has many authentic Japanese options, it’s not one of those cheap fusion type of places, the quality and freshness of the fish is amazing, they have some Japanese imported fish, one of my favorites is the snapper which I highly recommend

The service at MF is fantastic. The staff knows the menu inside and out. They give great recommendations. The space is small but does not feel cramped. Best sushi in Houston. They put Nobu to shame.

Extraordinary sushi experience as usual! The signature nigiri is always our favorite part about going to MF. Ambience and decor are beautiful, modern and minimalist, the perfect date night or or special occasion spot. Just sitting in the dining room feels like a celebration. The staff is super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!

To my taste, this is the best sushi place in Houston. Delicious food (drool worthy really), but with a relaxed atmosphere. It is simply just an easy and delicious meal.

The food is delicious but it is getting smaller and more precious each visit. This, of course, drives up the price of the meal. The service is very spotty. In fact, our server was pathetic. This detracts from the overall experience. More expensive, less responsive staff. Not good,

Pleasant gem in the heart of the Museum District. Service is top notch and something they really pride themselves on. Menu is diverse and can be overwhelming for first time sushi-goers, but it quickly comes together between sushi options and plenty of other dishes that are fully cooked.

Thought uchi was place to go for chef table sushi. Neighbor said I was wrong and how right he was. The chef selection was one of the most throughly enjoyable sushi meals I have had in a long time. Cannot offer enough praise.

Overall, underwhelming experience. The bluefin tuna was teeny tiny and tasted fishy, which is not great — and it tasted fishier than the mackerel (saba). The nigiri are the smallest I’ve had anywhere (in the world) and the fish is sliced so thinly that you see the rice in patches, while in some cases, there’s a ragged slice of fish where the rice ball is exposed. The toro here is a patchy imperfect $9 disappointment. I brought this to the attention of my server and they defended this presentation (holey and/or fishy), though they did offer a redo of the toro nigiri. The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired; most of the seats don’t provide a great view. I stared at a white wall. If you want to sit in a booth, make sure you ask for this in advance at the time of the reservation; they will reject your request for one — even if there’s an available one and the restaurant is nearly empty. Lastly, there are some cleanliness issues in the bathroom; there are thick layers of dust on the middle school style metal bathroom stalls. I won’t be back.

Food was decent, but not great for the price. Also, it was really hard to get soy sauce for the table. It sounds like the chef prefers you ask for it. The waitress indicated that soy sauce wasn't needed....but that is really subjective. I know several restaurants in LA that went bankrupt sticking to this philosophy....

This is one of the very best Japanese restaurants in the city. However, on the night I last dined, there was no Uni, no Tobiko, no Aji. It was extremely disappointing. I hope the restaurant is not in a downward spiral. The food is of the highest quality but the portion size continues to shrink. Soon you will need a microscope to find your nigiri. Oh well.
