We enjoyed the Big rib, Sea Bass and my daughter (vegetarian) had a Thai bowl with tofu. A tasty lavender rosemary infused lemon drop martini and a buttered bourbon. The wait staff bar manager and chef were amazing as usual. My husband celebrated his 61st birthday and it was very memorable. Go there and see why they are the only 5 star restaurant in The Woodlands, and maybe Houston as well! Very class act! You will not be disappointed!

Anniversary dinner for my son and his wife. We had a wonderful time. Max, our waiter was attentive friendly and informative. Had the poached butter crab and octopus, both were outstanding. The steaks were prepared perfectly and a friend of our son treated us to a dessert board filled with truffle candies, creme brule bread pudding, deconstructed s’more and a fabulous piece of carrot cake. Everything was crazy good !

The food is very good but overpriced. The wait staff are very casual for such a pricy, upscale restaurant. They spilled water on the floor every time they refilled our glasses(two different waiters), very chatty. The waiters were nice though. For some reason my open table reservation made weeks before was cancelled the day before. Good drinks. Lobster Toast was delish!

Chef Austin has created not only the best restaurant in The Woodlands but one of the top places in the Houston/ Texas area. The food and service could not have been better.

Delicious from start to finish! They have the best selection of Akaushi steak (Texas Wagyu- the best brand of steak in my opinion) in Houston! The Brussels sprouts are amazing and the creme brûlée bread pudding is the best dessert around!

Our first time at Tris was amazing. The food and service was well worth the price. Nathaniel our waiter was very detail oriented and made the best recommendations. Will definitely go back on our next special occasion or just for their happy hour menu.

A very good experience. The table next to us was having a great deal of fun and wine so it was a noisy evening. The service was top notch and the food well prepared and delicious. Looking forward to our next good evening experience.

Looking forward to eating here because of their vegan options. We made a reservation and sat down almost immediately. However, once we did, service was disappointing. We had a nice waiter come and check on us since our waitress was not coming by at all. He at least took our drink order, but still no waitress in site. We didn’t receive an appetizer until almost 50 minutes later. The waiter ended up taking over but after we gave him our order, we didn’t see him for about 15-20 minutes. I understand it was Saturday night and they were busy, but for the overpriced charges, you would expect 5 star service. We didn’t eat our entree until over 1 hour after our reservation. A group of 4 who was seated after us received their food before we did! Eventually when we received our food, the waiter did check on us periodically but it didn’t make up for it and it seemed like he was making up for his absence in the beginning. My husband had the rib, he wasn’t too impressed. I had the truffle pasta and the waiter reassured me there were no dairy products, but I wasn’t convinced. I’m pretty sure there was parmesan mixed in there. Overall, food was good, maybe we would return on a different night when they’re not so busy.

Food was very good BUT evening not very enjoyable. Had hoped to take advantage of Happy Hour prices, but bar was packed and noise level incredibly high, I got a headache as soon as I walked in. I was seated a table in the restaurant and was informed that I could only get Happy Hour prices at the bar. I was not prepared to pay for a full meal. The noise from the bar area also carried over into the restaurant. Too noisy for me to ever go back.

Excellent experience! We choose TRIS to celebrate our 9th anniversary. Since we arrived, service was A+. Food was incredibly tasty and well presented.

Our waiter, Nicolas, was fantastic. He made our late lunch between old friends an even better occasion. His menu and cocktail suggestions were spot on. The food was delicious...truffle fries (we asked for aioli to accompany and he brought three different kinds), the scallops and risotto and his suggested dessert...the creme brûlée bread pudding (which was eye rolling back in your head delicious). I love TRIS and will be back.

Excellent experience! If you are looking for a value experience this isn’t it, but if you are looking for a high quality dining experience with top end everything this is! With drinks you are looking at $80-100 per person all in with tip & tax.

Celebrated lunch with tenderloin tacos. The meat was tender and crispy as well as flavorful. We also had the trio of fries. Service was excellent.

Stick with the appetizers... the appetizers were really outstanding but the entrees were only average. I had the Kansas Strip and at nearly $50 I would have expected something exceptional but it was only average, good, but average. I also had the mushroom tart with ricotta and it was super dry, this was a real disappointment. The dessert was good but not enough to save the entree. When you practice that kind of price you better make sure that the product and the quality stands out compared to the competition and this is clearly not the case. The service was excellent though but the noise level around 8pm was way too high.
