Lara our server was awesome 😎
Crab appetizer was recommended as a fan favorite and after the presentation, I see why. Delicious. Risotto was fab. The team really make you feel special. Great job and wonderful experience.
Valet right on the corner.

Louder than we expected for the cost of the dishes ($50/entree). But food was exquisitely prepared. Service was good, friendly. Felt like a $30/entree experience.

Fantastic experience. The food was great we had the wood forest steak platter which was customizable and delicious, then we had the carrot cake and the croissant bread pudding. Matt was the best server I’ve had in years at any restaurant definitely ask for him!

I took my 9 year old daughter to tris in the woodlands for a dad and daughter date night. The food, service, and experience was all above average for restaurant in the area. I would say the steaks, which we both had different cuts for me to try, were better then any steakhouse in the area. The staff went out of their way to make the experience as wonderful as they could for my daughter. I didn’t ask for or request any special service for my dinner. Yet several employees on their own accord took time to stop by and make her feel special. Complimented her outfit, made her fancy drink I didn’t order or pay for, brought her a purse rack, and just treated her with what I thought was undeserved extra attention. I would like to use this opportunity to again thank the staff for a wonderful evening and experience you help provide my daughter and I.

My wife and I had eaten at this location years ago when it was Hubble & Hudson. We liked it then but we loved it this time. Great food and service. Everything was terrific. It is on the pricey side but it was worth it. We don’t get to The Woodlands often but when we do, this will be high on the list.

We were pretty disappointed by our experience there. We ate there in November and had an amazing meal. On Feb 15 the entire experience was off. The server was awkward, and the pacing on the meals was all wrong. We didn't receive any bread, and then we asked for some, twice. The main course came out while we were still eating our appetizers.

After we ate our salads, the waiter asked if we'd gotten our shrimp with them. We said no, it doesnt come with Shrimp. He claimed it did, went in the kitchen to get shrimp, and then came back and said we were right.

The food was okay. The octopus appetizer was overcooked. My husband was served (and charged for) a significantly more expensive scotch than he ordered.

All this is really fine at a cheaper restaurant, but we were hoping for a long, leisurely meal at this price point.

Friends took me for a birthday lunch and suggested Tris, the server was awesome and the food came out spectacular. We were even surprised with some special birthday drinks. I loved the Kimchi pancake and poach butter crab...the extra bread helped soak up all that delicious sauce. The soup was on point for a chili day and the steak was cooked to perfection on our salad. Lastly was the deconstructed banana pudding was chosen and tasted divine. The sourish ice cream and sweet meringue balanced out our afternoon and the creamy custard and burlee'd bananas concluded our birthday celebration on a high note.

WOW! Book this place now!! Went for anniversary with my husband and we have traveled the world and eaten well and this place we both labeled one of the best experiences and BEST FOOD we've ever had! They treated us so nice even from valet checking in on our reservations for us to almost every staff coming by to congratulate us on our anniversary. We go to dinner early because of a baby at home and early bedtime for us too and often we get seated at the worst table in the restaurant as I know they try to fill those first but we had THE BEST table even though we were first ones in the place at 5. They made it a great evening for us. Hands down the Korean Crab is TOTALLLLLLLLY worth it. Best thing ever. We WILL be back. Also, the bar food and scene looked amazing also so maybe if you don't want a quieter dinner it's a good option!

We got there 5 minutes early and were told we were early. Then few minutes latter a hosted told us we did not have a reservation that we could eAt in the bar. I had to show the Open table reservation on my phone for them to believe me. Not the service that we were expecting. Fortunately the waiter and the rest of the experience was great and it did not ruined the family evening

I am one who likes Tris, but on Sat night, it was in my opinion, awful.

Service was dismal. My food was bizarrely poor. Wagyu filet which was cooked perfectly (pittsburgh rare) was dry inside and the asparagus was absolutely raw with a tablespoon of bernaise on it. Inedible, both.
Don't even ask about the bread and butter..

The floor manager who was also the sommalier comped the meat and the veg. The wine was good.

If this was my first visit, I would never go back, but I have seen much, much better from them in prior visits.

Arrived a few minutes early for a 6 pm reservation and seated at table against back of the bar. Asked for a different table and was told no repeatedly. Table we asked about sat empty for 30 minutes. So I guess having a reservation doesn’t mean anything and tables are secretly reserved for “special” people. Staff had the warmth of ice cubes. They talk at you, not to you. Food was excellent but won’t be returning. Cold people, frigid uptight atmosphere.

The food was amazing, there were 6 people in our party and each of us had something different, and each meal was outstanding. We were celebrating a birthday and were greeted with a glass of champagne and the dessert presentation was wonderful. Our service was also very good. I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion celebration or if you just want to treat yourself to a great meal.

Date night, Lee was our waiter, we had lovely attention at the bar waiting for our table (we were deliberately 45 minutes early for our reservation), he made fantastic suggestions, so many upper level staff came by at least once to ask how things were going, we felt very well taken care of, and the food was decadent, the whole experience was way above expectations.

Second visit to Tris. Bar none, my favorite place. When my expectations couldn’t possibly exceed the first visit, Tris wowed is from start to finish. Our service was perfect. The time spent with the Sommelier pushed it over the top. As a native east coaster eating blue crabs my entire life, I’m an aficionado when it comes to crab cakes. The crab and kimchi cake is the second best crab cake I’ve ever eaten. Fresh jumbo lump back fin crab was the star of the plate. That sweet little drizzle of balsamic on the wedge elevated a classic into a new era of what a wedge should be. The A5 wagyu simply melted. It was a birthday celebration ever to forget. Tris is up there in price and it is worth paying for. When you look around the dining room even the patrons know to put in a jacket, wear a dress and had smiles all night. Leave your jeans at home and enjoy an evening at Tris. My only hope is that their management actually read these reviews.

Tris (formerly known as Hubble and Hudson) is one of our all time favorites in Houston. We went to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary for a late lunch. Everything was amazing. For over 12 years we have been going and they never disappointed. Stay for all 3 courses and you will be back for more.

Mitchell was fantastic, attentive and informative of the background of each dish and of the restaurant. The Korean Poached Crab and Octopus a La Plancha made us want to lick the plates. The sauces on every dish was the star clearly.

Only points of improvement could be adding some lower price point wines to the mix of such a vast selection of excellent wines.
