- The name says it allFlaneurVIPDined on 10/21/2014We'd been away for a year or so and wondered how Driomphe had fared: no need to worry. If anything Triomphe is better than ever, with service and food more finely tuned than we'd remembered. Service is professional, friendly and unobtrusive, the dining room is still a gem of gracious, luxurious politesse and the food - stellar. Tuna, lemon-roasted poussin and vegetables, scallops, and the beef wellington were perfection. Salads are complex and rewarding and the soups rightfully demand attention, too. Desserts are better than ever. There is now a tasting menu, and perhaps next visit we'll consider the epicurean menu. But we were too delighted with the gradual improvements and reassured that some good things never change - they triumph.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TriompheOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 10/17/2014Food quite good--foie gras terrine and baby kale salad. Bacon dressing was a good compliment to the kale. Kale could have been younger although it was sufficiently tender. Both were appetizers. Service was attentive. Dining room was beautiful. Tray ceiling with lovely carving.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just okay overallDunedinDined on 10/17/2014Two of us had dinner there in the early evening, and we were disappointed. The lobster bisque was dark and bitter; the salad was ordinary; the yellow fin tuna was not great; and the chocolate dessert was much too rich and cloying. The lamb special, however, was excellent as was the pear dessert. Overall, an average or rather a mixed dining experience that should have been much more special. Perhaps we were there on an odd night. The young chef was delightful, and two of the dishes were superb so there is promise.
- Very poor experienceChaspvbVIPDined on 10/16/2014The service people in this restaurant had poor or no training. I have been eating in New York Restaurants off and on since 1943. I have never encountered worse service. In a restaurant where my entree was $44.00, I expect a little attention. We got almost none. There were few tables occupied, and yet we had to constantly search for the waiter. Getting a second drink took extra effort on our part. We could see the waiter standing and chatting for long stretches in the kitchen door.
- Far from the madding crowdWilliamDined on 10/10/2014Triomphe is a quiet little gem and a welcome relief from the din and turbulence that characterize many restaurants today. The cuisine is excellent and the service impeccable. I recommend it especially for a serious business lunch or a romantic evening where you actually want to have a converse in a normal tone of voice, all the while being well taken care in a refined environment.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Find in the Theater DistrictRepastVIPDined on 10/9/2014The decor may be conservative, but the cuisine is splendid and the room is quiet, both finds in the theater district. We arrived not having allowed quite enough time for the tasting menu and were accommodated as well as possible by staff. As successive courses decree, portions were modest but sufficient. Everything was exceedingly tasty and pretty on the plate. There s a tariff fdor this, of course, but oftewn worth it. Conversation is at a premium.Special Features:
- Good Service, Limited Food ChoicesDanielVIPDined on 10/1/2014I have been dinning here quiet a few times. The service had always been great. However, the food choices is rather limited. I have been eating the seafood and fish dishes over and over. Maybe it's time to refresh the cusine with something new and interesting?Special Features:
- Lovely but...BetterLuckNextDineDined on 9/27/2014I 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...Special Features:
- Really not goodFoodisfunVIPDined on 9/25/2014I come to the city about three times each year and love trying new restaurants. This restaurant is a typical hotel restaurant. Overpriced poor food. So sad I wasted a dinner here.
- Still MemorableOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 9/25/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Phenomenal food.OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/20/2014Absolute must to visit for foodies. Deserves 6 stars!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 9/19/2014Very 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.
- Perfect little place!DelicatDined on 9/17/2014Great place for lunch, with very good food and service. Convenient location for pre and after theatre dinner. Enjoyable cosy atmosphere. Check it out when in the neighborhood. You won't be disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quiet business lunchOliveItDined on 9/17/2014Perfect spot for quiet business lunch which is not easy to find midtown. Tables are spaced appropriately apart and it was pleasantly quiet. Menu was nicely varied, with some interesting options.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/16/2014We went for a special occasion. This was a wonderful spot. We ended up having their tasting and wine paring menu. It was wonderful. Would highly recommend.Special Features:
- great eveningFrankDined on 9/13/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 5 Stars Not Enoughbooerns89Dined on 9/6/2014I have lived in New York and have always felt the service in general was sub standard. Not so in Triomphe. The staff could not have done more for us. The food was absolutely exquisite. The wine selection was excellent also. Will most definitely be coming back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Restaurant Jewel in NYCGourmetVIPDined on 9/6/2014My 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- quiet for business or romancewelltraveledDined on 8/26/2014so 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best for Pre TheaterJohn55VIPDined on 8/16/2014This 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.Special Features:
- Not impressedNYCvisitorDined on 8/9/2014I 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.
- Very nice pre-theater optionkbow722VIPDined on 8/8/2014I have found that hotel restaurants can be somewhat hit or miss but this is definitely a hit. The menu is imaginative and diverse, the execution of the dishes was excellent and the service was great!Special Features:
- Another lovely dining experience.GalicianRoseVIPDined on 7/20/2014This has become my go-to place for enjoying a fine breakfast. Whether I go unaccompanied or invite a friend or two, the experience is always memorable. I normally order the belgian waffle along with a cup of coffee. Plus, the service is exceptional. Highly recommend!!!Special Features:
- Consistent excellence!robareVIPDined on 7/17/2014We have returned to Triomphe many times. The room is quite small, but elegant. Service is excellent. For theater-goers, they know to ask in advance and move things along without making you feel rushed. The food is great. Presentation is on par with the finest restaurants. Highly recommended...Special Features:

- Pricey but deliciousRosieSometimesDined on 6/21/2014We 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 sat in a corner booth where it was quiet and we could talk comfortably.Special Features:
- Excellent food reasonably pricedMkerryRDined on 6/17/2014Took a group of 7 out for dinner. Everyone was very happy with their food. The service was excellent, attentive, but not intrusive. Facility is small and intimate. Price was reasonable given the quality. Would recommend to friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- second time aroundelkinsparkeatersDined on 6/14/2014We 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 eveningSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Grown-up Dining ExperienceRumpusVIPDined on 6/13/2014Whether it's for a pre-theater supper or a leisurely meal, Triomphe is wonderful place to dine. The room is intimate with tables spaced far enough apart that it's easy to talk and the food is fresh and inventive. An attentive staff attends to its guests without being overbearing and the whole experience is one of polished civility.
- Great business lunch!ZotpersonDined on 6/11/2014This was the perfect place for a business lunch. Easy to get to mid-town location, fantastic food and great service. It also didn't break the expense bank.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Business Lunch Gone Wrongthn222Dined on 6/11/2014The 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.
- A NYC favoriteKjh4VIPDined on 6/9/2014Nice French find. Small neighborhood setting. Food is perfection. Wine list is terrific. Never disappoints.Special Features:
- Worth the trip!bojaillieDined on 5/30/2014My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ElegantOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 5/27/2014We can always depend on Triomphe to be delicious, beautiful and quiet enough to have a conversation. It is an oasis in a bustling citySpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful lunch!MCNYCDined on 5/23/2014We celebrated our anniversary with lunch at Triomphe, and they truly made it a special experience. The service was old-school charming, the food was delicious (especially the strawberry soup dessert) and the atmosphere was low-key and elegant. A quiet, hidden gem.Special Features:
- Great place for celebration dinnerElizaDined on 5/22/2014Our family met here for a special celebration dinner. Food was amazing, service was attentive and atmosphere was elegant and quiet. Truly delightful!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A very special restaurantHPFrankDined on 5/21/2014We'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.Special Features:
- A disappointiTng lunch!OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 5/21/2014I'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.)
- Cost to value ratio is offDDDDVIPDined on 5/20/2014Triomphe 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.
- Wonderful and elegant!GalicianRoseVIPDined on 5/18/2014I'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
