    The best restaurant in the Woodlands area. Superb service matched with outstanding food make for another perfect evening. Elise took care of us upon entry and Nathan did a great job serving us, he knew the menu and made helpful suggestions from cocktails through a surprise dessert. Great evening, Meadow even stopped by our table just to say hello. Great Evening!

    It was our 39th anniversary and our first time to enjoy dinner at TRIS! I was over the moon upon entering! The warm welcome and so attentive. They were even able to sit us early with JESSICA! Yes truly...she is the BEST! She shared everything about Chef Austin and the amazing story behind each dish! We started off with the Roasted Oysters OMG...the presentation and the taste just like Jessica said it would be. Next up...pumpkin soup but not just any soup or was Cinderella pumpkin soup. It was mine and David's favorite...we loved it so much I am going to try my best to recreate but I know it will be impossible. The salmon and steak dishes were perfect! Cooked to perfection. The dessert Banana Pudding. For this southern girl I was not expecting what we got...truly a dream twist and although it wasn't the chefs moms banana pudding she would truly be proud I know! (You gotta go and ask about the banana pudding story...I promise you will be sold!) Definitely a night to remember and it started with the hostess, wait staff and JESSICA! You must ask for her when making a reservation! If I could give them a million stars I would. Thank you TRIS! Julie

    The steak was very tough and the entree overall lacked seasoning. The restaurant wasn’t very busy but it still took a long time for a server to get to us for our drink and food orders.

    The overall experience was amazing. Our server, Susan was professional, patient and polite. Her food and drinks recommendations were all on point. The bread pudding dessert is a must-try! Great ambience. It wasn't noisy at all as my wife and I could talk to each other quite comfortably. 10/10 experience.

    We were celebrating my wife’s and my birthday. Service was slow but the staff was nice. My $100 medium rare steak was tough . I am not one to send food back to the kitchen however in hindsight, I should have. My wife did however enjoy her meal.

    The food is amazing. The BEST in Houston, hands down. What makes this place so particularly amazing is the level of service. Kyle (our waiter) and Michael (our preliminary waiter) took such amazing care of us and made our experience genuinely memorable. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I not only recommend Tris, I encourage anyone reading this to give it a try if you haven’t already.

    First of all, the food was outstanding. But I did think it was a little overpriced, relative to other high end establishments. The service was slow, but not unexpected for a busy evening. Overall, a good experience but not one I’d opt for regularly.

    Truly amazing dinning experience. Parking was easy, garage above the restaurant (they also validate), we were welcomed immediately and professionally. Our table was perfect, when the hostess sat us they had read the notes when I made the reservation and wished my husband happy birthday, he was impressed. The service was perfect. Attentive, knowledgeable and very personable. You can tell the servers really enjoy working there. The food. Very rich and decadent. My husband said that the steak was probably the best he’d ever had. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended

    Food was good. Service was a little slow. Service staff were very helpful and friendly but over extended and absent. Dining area where we were seated was very noisy; similar to being in a bar and not a fine dining establishment. In fact the bar area was quieter then where we were seated.

I had the pleasure of touring the kitchen and meeting the chef. It was all so fabulous, I felt like a birthday princess. I will definitely be back for more of the rib and amazing bread pudding!

    The bad: We were put in the back next to a closet, on top of the threshold between the main dining room and a room in the back, and against the folding door used to separate the two rooms. Felt very makeshift and like we were not valued. No waitstaff came to our table for a long time to pour water and order drinks. The roasted oysters had too much wasabi. The good: All the other food was outstanding, it was quieter next to the closet, and our waiter was very knowledgeable and served us well. Summary: Mixed feelings - they knew it was my wife's birthday so we should not have been put at a table that felt like an afterthought, but the food and service once it started was good.

    We had the lobster risotto and crab and truffle pasta. Both were amazing. The crab pasta is probably the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. For dessert, we had the bread pudding and the apple tart. The bread pudding (recommended by our wonderful server) is unlike any I've ever had, and completely redefines what bread pudding should be. The apple tart was also great. Altogether, this is probably the best meal we've ever had. We've enjoyed Tris a few times before, but this was a truly remarkable dining experience.

    The steak was tough and not a good cut. The risotto was runny. The potatoes were salty. The lobster was under cooked and rubbery.

    This place is now our #1 restaurant. The ambiance was delightful. Our waiter, Thomas, was amazing and very knowledgeable of the foods and how they are prepared. The food was sooooooo good and bursting with flavor! The highlight of our dinner was dessert. I have never had bread pudding as good as theirs. Definitely recommend and going back.

    Chef Austin prepared me a wonderful veggie risotto off the menu (since I’m vegetarian) and my husband got a lobster and waugu dish. The beet and ricotta salad was great as a starter and my husband like his smoked oysters. Our cocktails and wine were fabulous too. We got three desserts…the deconstructed banana pudding, an apple pie and the massive chocolate cake. My favorite was the apple pie. Get it while it’s still on the menu!
