    I had looked forward to bringing my pre-theater group to this lovely restaurant for quite some time. The hostess who called to confirm my reservation was quite accommodating regarding our seating selection and I was sure we were in for a delicious treat. Unfortunately, the restaurant's inability to control the arctic wind that blew through the dining room throughout our meal ruined the experience for all of us. In addition, the lobster bisque seemed to be made of salt instead of bisque. My duck dish, once it was reheated after coming out of the kitchen cold, was delicious, and the rest of the party found the striped bass, scallops and soups to be quite tasty. All in all, not quite the Triomphe I was expecting for the price...

    We don't visit NYC often, but when there we still love to dine at Triomphe at least once and this time was wonderful, as expected. The menu was available online so we knew what our options might be in advance. The offerings reflect the season and the East Coast locale with regard to seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables. My "deconstructed Bouillabaise" was comprised of a nice combination of squid, baby clams, shrimp, salmon and white fish; the broth delicately flavored with fennel but robust in the flavors of the fish and shellfish. We shared an appetizer of 6 oysters with champagne "beads" - briny but small and mild in flavor. We also shared a beautiful salad of watermelon, feta and arugula which was beautifully presented on slate.

    Very disappointing. This was probably our fifth visit to Triomphe in as many years, and its previous dinners had lived up to its name. This time the service was friendly but quite disorganized; the dishes mediocre; the duck badly overcooked. For this lackluster dinner if two appetizers and entrees, with three glasses of wine between us and without dessert or coffee, the cost exceeded $200. Perhaps there's been a change in chefs. Certainly something has changed for the worse.

    We had not visited Triomphe for a few years and were so glad to see the recent updates to the restaurant The interior is lovely, with subdued lighting, but the real pleasure was with the staff and the food. We were greeted with a smile by the hostess and promptly put in the capable hands of Mr. Couto. Each staff member was cordial, without being intrusive, and guided us through our selections. We were pleased to see the addition of several half bottles of wine to the list, including champagne. Our dinner selections were outstanding (salmon, chicken, and Beef Wellington), and each was served in a timely manner. All around, we would give high marks, with special kudos to Ivo C. We shall definitely plan a return trip.

    My husband and I enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. After a hectic day in the city, what could be better than a quiet atmosphere with great service and food? We each had the beef wellington served perfectly as ordered-medium rare. The house cured salmon was a unique appetizer. Our next trip to NYC will include dining at this magnificent location again. Maybe this time we can save room to sample the wonderful looking deserts!

    so hard these days to find a quiet restaurant with great food and service. I have gone often with my husband but this time I needed to do a bit of business and it was perfect for that too. The service has always been good and they get you out in time for theater if you tell them. but the menu has improved even more and the food is delicious. This one is a old standby, gotten better.

    This is a very romantic space in a lovely boutique hotel - have eaten here many times - the food is excellent - service very good albeit a tad slow if you are going to the theater make sure they get it - for my money as a native New Yorker the best place to eat in the theater district besides Todd English's restaurant.

    I tried the 4 course meal with wine pairing and wasn't impressed with the food. The wine pairing was well done. Although the staff was very friendly and accommodating, I felt somewhat rushed since the meals were being served before I had finished my wine. It did not allow any time to savor the meal and chat over dinner.

    We stopped by Triomphe for dessert and coffee after a Saturday matinee. We ended up ordering some small plates that were delicious.... the scallops were beautiful and the tuna carpaccio which included a small seaweed salad was exquisite. The service was very good.

    We returned to Triomphe on Saturday June 15, 2014, and found it as delightful as the first time. The room is quiet and richly appointed. Of the three dishes we had (we both had the lobster entree), two were fabulous and the other was probably fabulous and not particularly to my liking. The sweetbread ravioli (first course was abundant, delicious and inventive. My salmon tartar two ways had too much of a citrus flavor for me, and I believe that was incorrect ordering for myself. The lobster dish was delicious and prepared perfectly. The wines by the glass (champagne and a nice Riesling) were fairly priced and very nice indeed. Our waiter was professional, and not intrusive. The greeting at the door and on the phone was friendly. Nice evening

    The quality of the food was OK, but for some reason we ordered at 12:45 PM on a regular Wednesday, and the entrees were served 4 minutes later. Appetizers came fast, but the gap between the appetizers and the entrees was so long that it made the whole experience a bit distasteful. I wouldn't go again.

    My wife and I traveled from DC to NYC and dined at Triomphe as part of our weekend 25th anniversary celebration. I decided on Triomphe based on a web search and reviews and they did not disappoint! The food was outstanding and the service excellent. We had been apprised ahead of time that we'd be dining in the front room due to a private party and although the bar got a bit noisy at times, the atmosphere was romantic and we were certainly well tended to. We enjoyed the shaved fennel salad (delicious) and the harlequin soup (what a treat) for appetizers and would also recommend both entrees, the stuffed guinea hen and the red snapper, not to mention the lavender panna cotta with rhubarb sauce for dessert. Five stars. Highly recommended.

    We've had very nice lunches here in the past, but this was our first supper. It was the perfect dining experience. The room lighting was just right. My wife's appetizer was delicious almond crusted scallops. Mine was very nice white asparagus. Her main couse was stuffed quinoa cake with Cedric cheese. She loved it. I had brook trout with blue crab stuffing. It was beautifully presented, generous and one of the most delicious dishes that I've ever had. For desert, we each chose the three cheese selection (they also have five cheeses). It came with a delicate spread and wonderful breads. We were in 7th heaven. Service was friendly, attentive and professional. Importantly, everyone was nicely dressed (i.e. no slobs). We will be back.

    I've not eaten at Triomphe for quite awhile, but remembered it as a lovely spot to take a client to lunch. I was very disappointed, as was my client, who had also been there in the past. The food was nothing special and the service was very annoying in that staff showed up overly frequently at our table and always while we were talking! While I appreciate attentiveness (and it's so unusual that I hate to complain), discretion and better timing would also be appreciated. The issue that will keep me from returning, however, is the disappointing meal (I had the snapper.)

    Triomphe seeks to create an executive experience, but in the end, there was a mismatch between the desired and actual outcomes. Our lunch started off well ... my lobster bisque was light and flavorful. My guest had the quinoa veggie dish for her main (she enjoyed it very much), and I had a fish in a light broth. My fish arrived far under-cooked (I enjoy rare fish, but this was part sushi). A replacement was better, but the broth only slightly added flavor and the veggies were far too plain. I found the flavors to be totally lacking, and while probably a healthy low-cal meal, I've enjoyed similar plates elsewhere with a more memorable taste. Desserts were good. The $125 (with tip) bill for lunch was steep for this "just okay" experience.

    I've written many glowing reviews of this place and in my opinion, it's worthy of the praise. I stopped by again this past weekend for breakfast. This time however, I opted for something different on the menu. I normally select the waffle or brioche French toast, but on Sunday I decided to try the Greek yogurt parfait. I received a very generous serving of yogurt, complete with granola, honey, dried fruit, nuts, berries and tropical fresh fruit. It was very satisfying especially since I later spent a few hours shopping at Macy's. Great service as well.

    Took two female companions, and although at 630 on a Tueday night there was only one other couple, we had read the reviews and weren't concerned about the lack of a crowd. We are glad we stayed. And glad we tasted the scallops.. Luscious. And the white asparagus was crisp and fresh, the accompanying sauce was just common. The stuffed trout was amazing, and the lamb was smooth and perfectly cooked. No room for dessert. One note.. My companions are always looking for places a woman exec can take another woman for dinner.. This is the place. A little too romantic, they felt to take a male client. Worth the visit.

    This is my third visit to Triomphe. The decor has always been lovely, and the food, always good, has gotten progressively better, as has the service. My one quibble is that it can still be surprisingly noisy: must have something to do with the acoustics, since the tables are not closely spaced. Still, all in all, a really excellent place.
