The food was unbelievable. The waitress went above and beyond to make us happy. We were very disappointed with the hostess who could not have been anymore rude to my wife or I on Valentines Day.

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!

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.

This a great restaurant for a special occasion because of their attention to detail and fine menu selection. We have continued to go there through each ownership. It has always been consistent. We have never been disappointed.

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.

Overall my husband and I had an awesome experience. Waited just a few minutes at the bar before being seated at our reserved time. Had the TRIS wedge salad which was divided for hubs and me. Pork belly was a delicious treat as well as the candied pecans. I had the seared scallops with the risotto and spinach - absolutely yummy. Hubby had the striped bass - he cleaned the plate, so that tells you it was good. We were treated to the crème brulee bread pudding as it was my birthday - all graciously served. If we had a minor compliant, it would be that we were seated at a very small table . It was noisy. Next time we'll request a booth!

We went to Tris for lunch. He had the poached crab as an appetitzer which was excellent. I had the Tris burger which was also very good with truffle fries. My friends got the steak ravioli and the chef burger. The lunch was enjoyable, the service was excellent. I can't wait to come back and try Tris out for dinner.

For the price the dinner was mediocre. I had the striped bass which was bland and dry and the key lime tart which had the consistency of jello and was disappointing. Our four other guests gave mixed reviews. This was our first and last time

It was really good but I just don’t know that I can justify the price. Menu had options for New Years but the venison was over cooked in my opinion and the crab was just weird and a bunch of flavors that didn’t really seem to meld. Those were both main courses.

Great early dinner on New Year's Eve.

Excellent service from the first step entering..

Food excellent, especially given the holiday occasion.

Timely and well done, near perfect execution by front and back.

Beautifully creative menu options, well balanced and approachable. Nice without being arrogant or intimidating, which was a plus with us bringing our elderly parents along!

Don't know, maybe we just happened to visit on an off night at Tris in the Woodlands. The Yelp reviews were all very good, so we went with the crowd and tried a menu that is a bit different from the usual - many times that is a good thing, but not on this night. There were 4 of us dining, and after a couple of misses with red wine suggestions by the waiter, we decided to order a bottle of white - but they have a VERY limited white wine list - only two (2) Pinot Grigio wine offerings. After our 2 flight wine tasting, we settled on a decent wine and I ordered the recommended lobster bisque, Thai Patagonian Toothpick fish with shared sides for the table. I enjoyed the presentation on the lobster bisque - a bowl with 4 cubes of lobster meat was placed in front of me, and then lukewarm to cool bisque was poured over it. It LOOKED delicious but was way off temperature and so rich with cream it gave me a stomach ache. The fish was described to be "sea bass-like" but was like an old lump of white fish long forgotten in the bottom of the freezer. I only ate 2 bites ($24 a bite) and the waitress must have known how bad it was because she didn't even bother to ask how my meal was cooked. Our tab for 4 with tip was almost $400 -

I was truly disappointed in the food and cannot recommend and will not ever return.
