    Resturant Week was great at Tris, the menu was different and innovative. We each had something different for each of the three courses and each one was delicious and could have been regulars on the menu. Our server was Jay who was delightful, knowledgeable and attentive. Great evening all around, special thanks to Jay and to Tris.

    We love Tris but had not been in a long time— we were drawn back by the Houston Restaurants Weeks menu and invited friends to join us. We were all impressed by the selections and also the amount of food on each plate but what was really impressive was the care shown to us by our server, Ashlyn— she was a delight and offered top notch service. Also Sean our server in the bar was great.

    We dined at Tris for our anniversary, which, coincidentally fell during Houston Restaurant Weeks! Service was thoughtful, helpful and outstanding throughout our experience! It was very difficult choosing between HRW offerings, as they all sounded fabulous! For the first course, my husband chose the crab and corn soup, I chose the goat cheese terrine. Both were amazing! Truthfully, I have not tasted such smooth, flavorful goat cheese since I lived in Paris! The difference? The portion served by Tris was easily twice the size typically offered in restaurants in France. As for entrees, I chose the pork chop, perfectly prepared, savory and juicy. My husband chose the snapper, which he raved about. No skimping on portions here, either. We both brought home reminders of this delicious course! Desserts were stellar, as well! I knew I wanted the croissant bread pudding, which even more decadent and delicious than I anticipated. Our server helped my husband choose the blueberry lemon pie, a yummy ending to a glorious dining experience! If you’ve been reluctant to treat yourself to a meal at Tris due to economical considerations, have no fear: Tris gives the same perfectionist skill and attention to preparing HRW offerings as any other item on the menu. Indulge yourself! A truly spectacular dining experience awaits!

    Here's a big shout out and extremely grateful THANK YOU to Chef Austin Simmons for the delicious Wagyu Akaushi steak and King Ora Salmon, desserts, and nice evening we spent at TRIS. Is there anyone who prepares this better? What a surprise on my son's 25th birthday to get dessert delivered to our table (and with candles!) by none other than Chef Austin himself!! He shows such compassion and care for others in this community. The restaurant was full of hungry patrons and how Chef Austin handles many multiple projects so well is amazing. We also appreciate our waiter (Manny) who was delightful to work with from beginning to end.

    Went for our 30th Anniversary during Houston Restaurant Weeks. Susan, our server was wonderful, knowledgeable and very attentive. Food was incredible and portions were great! The tuna/watermelon appetizer was so good and I could eat the bread pudding every day! Highly recommend Tris. So glad we chose to go there for our special night.

    The food was incredible! The crab cake, smoked oysters and pork belly were outstanding appetizers all with unique flavor. The watermelon salad was loved by all, even those who were not watermelon fans. The big rib was incredible! All good had beautiful presentation and our server was experienced, knowledgeable and on the ball! Not our first time and certainly not our last! Back room a little loud, but it was crowded and people were joyful!

    Even though I ordered the wrong item (I didn't read description correctly) Mitchel our server completely took care of it and got me something else. I received a beautifully prepared pork chop. My husband the Red Fish. Everything was full of flavor and most importantly came out HOT. I dispise lukewarm food at a fancy restaurant! Our server was fantastic, answering all my husband's questions. He's a bean burrito man so this was outside his comfort zone. I myself, a foodie loved how comfortable Mitchell was about all aspects of the menu. I would recommend this for restaurant week as the value can't be beat!

    We have eaten at Tris many times. The service was not what we have experienced in the past. It was terribly slow taking 45 minutes after our main courses to get dessert. There was not the attention to detail in service that we have experienced in the past.

    TRISResponded 7 days agoChef Austin wanted to Thank You for your feedback and apologize about your experience last night at TRIS. He is coaching his TEAM to ensure that these issues will not happen going forward. Chef understands, local chef, that the community is what has allowed him to stay in business for over 12 years in The Woodlands. He will be reaching out to you to follow up soon to give you an update. Thank You for your support over the years and the TEAM looks forward to seeing you soon at TRIS.

    Too noisy which ruined ambiance. Could not carry on conversation with guests at the table due. Food was good but Big Rib was very fatty. Price points have definitely increased to the point of being marginal for quality of food.

Even Chef came by to visit along with the manager and all our favorite servers. The food is different and delicious. Cocktails are also prepared differently giving their own touch of class.
