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.

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!
