Laura was our server. So polite and outgoing. Her suggestions were spot on. The lamb lollipops as appetizer was delicious. We tried the 2 different center cut filets. Both were amazing. Never had a steak that tender. The bread pudding for desert was sooooo good.

From a facilities perspective, it is a rather small place. The loudness level was more than I prefer. But we chose not to dwell on it, and it was ok overall.

My only real disappointment was that I asked for the steak from the 10-yr old cow. I was told it wasn't "ready" to be served.

Overall, the food quality was over the top phenomenal and extremely tasteful. We enjoyed our experience.

Interesting, unusual menu items. Good food and service. A little pricey. Good ambiance except it gets noisy. A lot of the dishes are rich and not dietetic. We'll be back.

Great quality up there with any high end restaurant in Galleria, ROD, Upper Kirby, etc... Best valet service I have ever seen and others should take note. I gave my name to valet and the valet knew I had a reservation for 3 and greeted me as such. Very classy.

Excellent food and the staff was awesome! We don't make it out to the Woodlands often since we live in town. But we were out there for a college graduation and wanted to have dinner at a place that was not a chain. This place is worth the trip!

Arrived on time, hostess couldn't find the reservation (despite reconfirmation by phone). Service slow, with long wait times, one drink order wrong. Food was good (especially Petite Filet Benedict and Crispy Cauliflower), but won't be returning soon given service experience.

we were greeted promptly upon entry and enjoyed a quick drink at the bar. Once we were ready to be seated they did so promptly. Once we settled in we were greeted by the general manager which added a very personal touch to our experience.
For starters, we ordered the Korean Butter Poached Crab and the Grapefruit Avocado. Absolutely delicious! Amazing crab dish!
For main course the Crab & Truffle Pasta, the Center Cut Filet along with sides of Truffle Risotto and Brussels Sprouts & Parm.
We were blown away with each dish!
And my wife had never eaten Brussels sprouts before😀 we enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine and fantastic service from Mattie!

TRIS knocks it out of the park. Friendly, timely, and professional, from Management to Wait Staff. Whether for lunch or dinner service, our food is always excellent. From a private/quiet business meal, to date night, they have us covered. Will continue to support this great establishment.

This was our first time dining at Tris. It was an absolute pleasure. We have traveled extensively, so finding a gem like this in our backyard is so exciting. Everything from the service to our amazing food selections made for a perfect evening. We were greeted by a precious waitress Meghann. She was knowledgeable and very helpful selecting our meals. We never had to look for her to ask for anything. The food was delicious and true works of art! The flavors put together by Chef AUSTIN in each special dish was nothing like we have ever eaten before. This immediately has become our favorite restaurant and we will be back regularly. Thank you Tris for a wonderful and perfect Anniversary evening.

Fantastic food... I mean fantastic, life altering, glorious food. The wait staff this particular evening was a little scatterbrained and the bartender was obviously new. Chevan our waitress was experienced and delightfully helpful so she made the small inconveniences of the evening a fun experience. I highly recommend Tris if you want to have a real gourmet meal.

Fantastic dinner last night at Tris in the Woodlands. It started when the valet asked my wife if we were there for anything special. She said it was her birthday to which he responded that he would happily comp the valet charge for sharing her birthday with them. It only got better from there.

We were in no hurry so we had a cocktail in the bar even though our table was ready. I hate being rushed through a nice dinner so when we sat down we ordered a bottle of wine and asked for a recommendation for an appetizer to share. The server had no issue with us taking our time. The KOREAN BUTTER POACHED CRAB was to die for.

We took our time then ordered main courses. For dinner my wife had the U10 SEA SCALLOPS and I had a fillet with a grilled garlic and an incredible sauce on the side. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time, especially with the garlic and sauce.

We followed with desert.

No rush, great intimate dinner for two and incredible food.

I love the steak salad. Client favorites are the lamb meatballs, caesar salad with prawns and the TRIS burger. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. We always welcome to relax, take our time and stay as long as we like. There location is convenient and their prices are reasonable for the amazing quality. We go there at least once a month.

We were very excited to try Tris after hearing all of the rave reviews, however we left disappointed. Although they attempt to be upscale with the linens and decor, it does not meet the criteria. It’s extremely loud and there is a significant casual vibe both by patrons and waitstaff. Our lamb appetizer and bread pudding dessert were both fantastic. We ordered steaks for the main course and ended up sending one back for being over cooked. Both steaks were over seared, borderline charred on the outside, lacked flavor, and the the accompanying gravy tasted like instant. We frequent other highend steak places and will not be back here for steaks. However, since the lamb appetizer was very good, we will try again for seafood and other non steak options.
