Crawfish Time!
Yes, our chefs are always excited about crawfish season! Especially TRIBUTE Chef de Cuisine Jeff Boudreaux, who is from Morgan City, Louisiana. We've rolled out some favorites - Crawfish Bisque with Garlic Toast, Crawfish Hushpuppies, and a new Crawfish Cake with Roasted Corn Maque Choux and Spring Onion Remoulade. No peeling required!

Serving dishes inspired by great chefs, cultures and families from north, south and east of our borders, TRIBUTE’s food is called “Tex-Lex” and is food Houstonians love to eat.

Try the Brioche Texas Toast or Boudin Eggs Benedict for breakfast, Boudreaux’s Crispy Shrimp Po-Boy for lunch or Post Oak Wood grilled steaks, Gulf Coast Oysters or the Kings Inn Salad.

Reservations are not necessary but are recommended.

TRIBUTE’s exclusive Wine Room is available for private dinners, seating up to four guests.

En general es un muy buen restaurante ; sin embargo mi única observación es que el tiempo entre la entrada y el plato fuerte estuvo muy largo.
El mesero trató de resarcir este error así que al final estuvo bien.

A very nice hotel dining venue. The service was equal to some of the best we have ever had. The food was very good; the tortilla soup especially.

Classy restaurant in the Houstonian hotel. The decor is simple and plain, but the quality of food and service make up for that. Brunch menu was a bit short, but a la cart style makes it so much better than a buffet.

A perfect start to a Saturday. An upbeat beautiful atmosphere with top notch service and delicious breakfast. Great social distance and appreciated the temperature check and COVID questionnaire. Feel safe in there. I almost hate to rave about it for fear that it will get too crowded and we won't be able to get a reservation.

Very enjoyable experience fir our anniversary. Beautiful setting, attentive wait staff that answered all our questions about various dishes & also made suggestions when asked. Food was great & presented well. We appreciated the quiet ambiance that allowed us to talk without having to compete with loud background noise!

Dining at the Tribute during the holidays is a family tradition. The Houstonian hotel is a magical place with the lobby full of beautiful Christmas decorations complete with a 20 foot tree. Outside the old oak tree is covered in thousands of lights.

The food and service at the Tribute are excellent!

Steve Fronterhouse, the General Manager of the hotel, goes out of his way to ensure each guest has a special experience.

I highly recommend the Houstonian hotel and the Tribute restaurant.

Great wine and great food, but the pricing leaves something to be desired. I felt that because even with a member discount, we spent over $100/person. Because of the pandemic, I feel the service, though excellent, was a bit sparse because our server had to attend to too many other tables. This slowed the meal down considerably, but it was overall a good experience.

Tribute is one of my favorite hotel (located in the Houstonian Hotel) restaurants for any meal, but they are outstanding for their breakfast service. The breakfast service, food, and ambiance are always outstanding. I have many business breakfasts and lunches here and it is a very inviting atmosphere to bring a client. I have also introduced my family to Tribute. My wife and adult children are quite particular about their restaurant choices, and even they are happy to join me for a meal at Tribute. I look forward to my next visit!

One of the top meals in Houston. Reminded me of the original Cafe Annie. Loved the menu. Everything we ate - crab claws, tortilla soup, snapper, filet, jalapeno gratin potatoes, grilled cream corn - was spectacular. The service was also super impressive. Kudos. This is our new favorite place.
