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!

Such a wonderful attentive staff- Eduardt from Albania- was tremendous and had excellent recommendations. It made for a lovely evening. The special was smoked quail that was outstanding!

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.

The Tribute is a hidden jewel; especially within COVID era. It's almost like having a personal chef and a clean, beautiful dinning facility all to yourself. I certainly feel safe and the food and service is superb.

We had a very enjoyable breakfast here on a Sunday morning. The huevos rancheros and bananas foster french toast were both standouts, but everything was tasty. The tables were well spread apart for social distancing, the wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly, and the noise level was perfect for our table of 5 to have wonderful conversations without yelling.

My wife and I had dinner for our anniversary at Tribute. It was our first time there, our experience was Excellent! Everyone from the Valet staff, our Server, the Manager, and even the Chef were very courteous and attentive and made our dinner very enjoyable. I had the "Experience" meal and it did not disappoint. The presentation and flavor in every course made it obvious that careful attention is put in to every dish. I would rank Tribute as one of my top 3 Favorite Restaurants to visit in Houston. Special Thanks to every one at this superb establishment. Keep up the good work!

It was good to see the restaurant busy — given they were adhering to the socially distance requirements. The restaurant was good about making sure they met/exceeded the standards set.

Food was as good as usual, although I think they were a little out of practice as items took a while to get out of the kitchen. Given what we’ve all been through I can give them a pass. Will definitely be returning.

A great experience! From the moment we pulled into valet, to the CoVid measures taken to make all guests feel safe, to the awesome and highly observant staff, to the great food, my husband and I had a wonderful time and will definitely return! They remembered my husband’s drink that I mentioned when I made the reservation, they called us by name and they even brought out a complimentary desert to celebrate our new born baby! Wow! Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, they called my cell when we accidentally left our to go food and met us curbside to deliver it to us! The manager walked around and spoke to all guests to ensure everyone had what they needed and the food was impeccable! Thank you for making our date night one to remember!

Everything about Tribute was outstanding. Came here for HRW. We will return for their regular menu. We’ve been to a lot of restaurants in the last month or so and Tribute was by far the best at keeping people safe. Add to that a great atmosphere, over the top service and fantastic food and you have a winning combination!

I had the tortilla soup, salmon and chocolate pie. All were delicious. And they have some of the best bread anywhere.

Thank you Tribute for a great night out with friends!

My wife and I celebrated my birthday here. Great food, in a beautiful setting. The crawfish dishes were really delicious - particularly since they are the only shellfish that I am not allergic to. The kitchen was careful to address my allergy and make slight modifications to ensure my safety. When we ordered dessert, it was brought out with a Happy birthday message and a candle - very nice touch!

Everyone was very careful to abide by the current CDC guidelines - we felt very well protected in the restaurant.

Overall, a really good experience.

What a perfect way to wind down on a Friday evening! Drinks in the bar followed by a delicious dinner. I had the red snapper special. Very flavorful! Tasted hubby’s filet... FABULOUS!!! Tender yet tasty! Jalapeño potatoes were to die for!! Yeast rolls melted in your mouth!! Too full for dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

The service and the food was astounding. Miguel was our server, he was wonderfully knowledgeable about the menu and so kind. We ate there our first night and came back every day because of their kindness. Franco, the manager, was so kind and generous. We will be going back to visit the Tribute and the Houstonian.
