Triomphe Ratings and Reviews
Dinner on 12/23 was a disappointment. It had been several years since we dined here, and we thought it would be a special treat before the theater. It was a mediocre experience. One of the votive candles on our table was chipped and cracked. The room was overly warm. We ordered an interesting bottle of champagne, but the label was so moldered and faded the waiter had to show me the back of the bottle so I would know it was what I ordered. Squash and mushroom soups were first rate, as was the kale salad with grilled plums. Main courses were disappointing, and they were barely warm. The sauce for the Dover sole was jarring with such a mild fish. The meat in the beef Wellington was delicious, but the pasty crust was just phyllo that was tough, leathery and tasteless. Green beans were undercooked (there's a difference between crisp and raw). Triomphe used to be a place where all the details were right, but this time it felt like they were just going through the motions.
We were going to see the tree and Billy Joel
Even though it was a hike it was well worth it
My wife who normally eats like a bird had the tasting menu and each coarse was better then the next
I had the chateau Brie on n the risotto
Couldn't find a better meal
Will definitely come again next time we are in the big apple
Too few servers for full house. Had to pour our own wine for our last glass. Food was delicious however vegetables were cold and raw. Croquettes were cold while fish was hot. Sent back ...Took 1 hr for main course to arrive. Server took meal off bill. Didn’t have wine ordered. Mushroom soup and octopus was amazing as well as the Dover sole. I will try again i think someone in kitchen had to have called out...
We were looking forward to a friend reunion evening at a traditional French restaurant and
looked forward to the Dover sole shown on the menu. When we ordered we were told there
was no Dover sole. The Beef Wellington was not very tender. We will not be returning.
If only the service were better, this would have been a highly rated spot. Perhaps the staff was stretched by a private party, but we never had water glasses refilled and general service was disorganized. Wine was opened and when the server was asked to change the glass because it was dirty, he disappeared for several minutes with the bottle and dirty glass reappearing and setting another table along the way.
By the way, the food was delicious and well worth a repeat visit.
The evening started off with horrible service, took 45 minutes to get a bottle of wine. Once they brought that out, the service suddenly improved, I'm thinking the waiter must have been caught up with a larger party when we first arrived. The food was impressive and the service contined to be attentive. Overall, a very nice evening.
Great value for excellent food. My only disappointment was that I thought I was going to a classic NYC French restaurant. Instead of a hostess with a French accent, I quickly realized we were in a restaurant attached to a hotel. Notwithstanding, the food was terrific and reasonably priced.
The three of us each got the power lunch (3 courses in 60 minutes). What they fail to advertise is that even when they only have two other occupied tables, it'll take 30 minutes for them to get your order. But 3 courses in 90 minutes isn't much of a selling point.
On two separate occasions, the staff brought the wrong dish to our table. Their mistakes led to the power lunch taking over 60 minutes *even if* We didn't count the first 30 minutes.
Perhaps I'd be more content if the food was better. A disappointment on many levels.
Triomphe is an authentic French dining experience and it's absolutely fabulous! I say EXPERIENCE because it is something to enjoy and savor. Every bite was delicous! It's classic and very special, portions are moderate to large actually and our table of 5 took our time to enjoy a variety of items and delicious wines over 2 hours of PURE YUM! Although they have a lovely tasting menu at a very reasonable price we chose to order a la carte and share quite a few starters. Ingredients are all so fresh, and of great quality. Salads are accented with homemade dressings and many special touches ... figs, pears, chevre, pomegranate and a delightful citrus undertone for perfect balance to the palate. The oysters are pristine and prepared with hors radish and a hint of garlic - the freshest I've ever had! Sides of potatoes and green beans are plentiful to share but the highlight of the meal was the Beef Wellington - perfectly prepared, decadent and it melted in your mouth. Again, the best I have ever had - this is definitely the place to enjoy such a special dish - it's fresh, firm but tender and the pastry shell was crisp, light and flakey accented with the most flavorful fois grois. All of the tastes combined well yet kep their succinct and unique flavors in every bite. We finished off with espresso and baked alaska, again, the best ever and plentiful to share. It was magnificent and a good choice for a birthday celebration because it lights up the table! We dined at 745pm on a Saturday night and learned that they have a big rush for pre-theatre dining so it was quiet, intimate and slow paced at that time so I highly recommend a later dinner so you can enjoy conversation and the beauty of the room - ambience is lovely, decorated to perfection, as well, and they also have a cute and cozy bar and lounge area! The service is very good and we were attended by 4-5 staff and they all had a special role for the table - I highly recommend Triomphe!
We dine at Triomphe often (we stay in the attached Iroquois Hotel) often and it is always a very pleasant experience. The atmosphere is quiet, perfect for conversation, the menu is very good, and innovative, the food is excellent and well prepared and the staff is super! One evening when they were short staffed our waiter took care of a couple of tables, and served people at the bar, was friendly and polite, not stressed, he was fantastic. This was an extreme case, but the staff is always polite and kind. Highly recomended!
We had a wonderful pre theater meal. My wife had the lobster in a flaky pastry and I had the wellington. Both expertly prepared. We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned after the show for desert and coffee. The staff was very professional and friendly and we will be returning the next time we are in the city.
I have never been more disappointed in my life. I had been looking forward to dining here for months with my boyfriend, but the timing never worked out. Well, I finally got the timing to work out, and now I don't have the words. Awful? terrible? dull? never, again?
We ate here before the theatre. There was only one waitress for the entire place so service was slow. When you need to ask for another glass of wine you know there is a problem. We ordered the Flambeed Baked Alaska for dessert, while the dessert was delicious the presentation was a bit of a let down. We ordered it as we saw the presentation at the table behind us (dessert lit on fire!). Ours didn't come that way. The Baked Alaska was just left on the table. When I asked the server if it was "missing something" he said, "Oh!" and left for several minutes before he came back with the "flame" part of the dessert, by then the moment had passed. The food was excellent, I just wished the service had matched it. I'd eat here again to give them another chance.
We've enjoyed many good meals at Triomphe but our dinner Thursday was a disappointment. As soon as other guests left for the theater, the room, though small, was practically empty without the festive vibe of other diners enjoying their meals and each other. Our waiter has been warm and gracious in the past, but he seemed particularly stressed on this night and his mood impinged on our pleasure. The food was very good but not spectacular enough to make up for the other deficits.
The food was great. We had the escargot, green salad, trout ( dad wasn't too happy about the string beans being to firm and the ends not cut), braised short ribs ( soft and tasty), WHILE CHOCOLATE PROFITEROLE, and FLAMBÉED BAKED ALASKA. I was so full I wanted to take my profiterole home but the waiter was saying the desserts would melt and wouldn't let me take it. Very weird because the profiterole was breaded with creme inside so I didn't understand his problem. The indian looking waiter who delivers the meals is a bit weird. He takes your plate very fast even when your not done. Didn't like that very much. Felt like they wanted us to leave.
