Nice place but the meal seemed rushed by our waitress. Entrees came out while we were still eating the appetizer and our waitress just seemed rushed when dealing with our table the entire time. Menu was a bit limited. Seems this place knows it has a good location right across from the events at Rupp Arena and that is all they need to keep customers.

Food was great. The shrimp and grits were the best I have had! Service was friendly.

My wife and I were celebrating our joint birthdays with dinner out and a play at the Opera House. We found Triangle Grill for dinner. I had the steak which was done to perfection. She had the chicken club sandwich which she fully enjoyed. Everyone was very nice. I could not say enough about how friendly and attentive our server Sandy was. She is the best.

UK basketball game at Rupp Arena

We were quickly greeted and seated before a U.K. Basketball game. Our waitress Sandy did an excellent job of making sure we were on schedule and took our order. We added another person halfway through our meal and she was able to handle the change flawlessly.
The brisket sandwiches were tender and had a wonderful flavor.
We will definitely return for another pregame meal.

Everything was fine, not great but not bad. Didn’t realize it was a hotel restaurant.

The food was excellent and priced appropriately. Alcohol was extremely over-priced, especially bourbon. The orders we placed were 100% correct; but service was fair, at best. The dining room was clean and beautifully decorated and the view of Triangle Park was nice. No reservation was needed, as there was only one other table being serviced at the time we were there. Overall, we had a nice, quiet meal but there was not much special about it.

Typical mid-level hotel restaurant
Interesting part was that I had made reservations thru Open Table and was told by Hostess that Open Table reservations didn’t show up on their computer system – so we had no reservations. Not a problem – they were not busy and able to accommodate our party of 8 within a couple of minutes. Overall the food was decent and the service was good.

Don't bother. Look for another spot. Just a hotel cafe. The advertising oversold the place.

We went here before a UK basketball game. The food was excellent and the price was good also. It wasn't too crowded or noisy. They offer a pre-game buffet for $20, but we ordered off of the menu because we knew that we were going to have a large dinner out that evening. I would definitely eat here before a game another time. The location if perfect.

It had note scored very well in previous reviews, and frankly, when you are trying to find a table for 10 at 9pm, you go with what you can find. We had a really nice meal. Our servers was witty, the service was fast and the food was good. We had a really nice evening.

My steak order was overcooked the first time around but after re-cooking, it was great. The others in the party were fairly pleased with their orders except for the wait time. The kitchen initially made all the orders "to go" but only one of the party had requested that service. After correcting that error, the orders were plated all except the steak order which took an extremely long time and then came out well done when the original request was medium rare. The chef and manager corrected the mistake in a gracious manner and the rest of the evening was very nice.

This is a restaurant inside a hotel. This is conveniently located inside the Hilton- but that's about it. 1 server, as there was one other group eating in the restaurant. Didn't stick around for the food. (sign of good food....PEOPLE eating there)

The dining room was less than half full when we arrived, yet it took 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order. The food arrived 40 minutes into our visit, and it was wonderful. We had to ask to have our water refilled. Truly service is the only down side.

OpenTable Diner (New Orleans)

We have been to Triangle Grill many times. It is a great spot to watch the Lexington Christmas Tree lighting. However, the service this time was awful. Initially our waiter was at our table several times while we were deciding and ordering drinks. Then he was no where to be found for at least 15 minutes. It took 30 minutes to get the two drinks that were ordered. The food came out pretty quickly once we were able to place our order. However, they gave my sister the wrong food. They fixed it quickly and did comp her for her meal, which she appreciated. My husband and I liked our food, fish sandwich and fried green tomato sandwich and both had the French Onion soup which is always very good.
Overall, the food was good, but the service was so bad that we questioned whether we would bother to go there again for the tree lighting or any other time.

We've been to triangle grill many times. The service is usually good, the menu is good and the dining room has a good view of triangle park. Great for before or after a game.

Good food. Service was good. Menu choices were varied and creative. Better than many hotel restaurants.

This was a very nice restaurant but located in the Hilton hotel-which I didn't discover on the Open Table reservation site. Would definitely go back but think it's very important to disclose that it's part of the hotel!!

The salmon was incredible. The service was just so poor. Hopefully this was a fluke?
