Triptych is a trendy diner serving contemporary American fare. The dining room is covered wall to wall in paintings and photographs from local artists. Best of all, if diners desire, they can purchase the art right off the wall and, ultimately, support the artist. The dining space is open, with tall ceilings and a covered patio that sits out by the sidewalk.

While it is not a strictly vegetarian restaurant, Triptych does have a several options for vegetarian meals. These include an organic garden burger with wild oats, rice, corn broccoli and bell peppers, in addition to a roasted veggie sandwich with balsamic, red onion, pesto, summer squash, zucchini and eggplant. Triptych is also known for its great brunch menu, especially the chocolate and bacon beignets, and house-specialty mimosas made from a variety of freshly pressed juices.

Why did your system allow us to make a reserv. for 5 people at 3 PM when the place CLOSES at 3 PM? Further, when I suggested they update their hours on Open Table - the stated they are closing their doors in a we'll never know. Sorry we missed it! However, Rocco's [just down the street] was AMAZING!!!

Very friendly staff and attentive service. Food was good and lots of variety on the menu. Good spot for brunch. Easy parking.

Brunch for 5 was a disappointment. Menu items (such as pancakes, chai, and certain beers) were completely missing. The waiter messed up 2 of the 5 orders (where one person wanted salad on the side, but then got potatoes, and the other person wanted french fries and instead got a salad). Not only that, but the food came out extremely late. We waited a really, really long time before any food came out at all.

The food quality of what we did receive was middling and uninspired.

This is so disappointing because the space itself is really cute, and the location is pretty central.

Finally, about 3 hours after we left the restaurant, I got an email saying that Triptych had cancelled my OpenTable reservation altogether. In addition to a poor dining experience, they also appeared to want to take away eligible dining points (which OpenTable subsequently fixed).

I will not come back here.

Good food. Great patio in the backyard.

We were seated near the front door on a Sunday. The crowds waiting for a table were queuing up inside the front door of the restaurant. People were hovering and bumping us at our table while they just stand there in the doorway. Why don't they have people wait outside, especially on a beautiful warm afternoon? Very uncomfortable dining experience.

My frittata blanc was delicious and healthy, and a nice contrast to the sinfully good bacon bignets. We ate outside because it was a bit cold but they have a nice patio. I've also been there for lunch and had a very nice salmon salad with a glass of organic white wine.

Good concept- art gallery + cafe but looks really tired during daylight. Tattered curtains needs paint etc. Art okay. Food passable but not delicious. Watery ice tea. Not many choices in this neighborhood.

Came here for a group brunch after doing research on good spots for that sort of occasion. Felt like the restaurant had no idea how to tackle serving a group of more than 4 and also felt like the menu is not at all geared toward sharing. Had the most abysmal Benedict of my life--the English muffin was soggy, the egg was fully cooked through ( a poached egg has a runny yoke...), and tabbouleh pairs terribly with the other ingredients (loved the idea, hated the execution). Will not be back and will not recommend.

I love this neighborhood find and have been going there for the past 3 years. David (the owner) is amazing and accommodating and always makes you feel like you are a VIP. The wait staff are artists and the spot contains not only solid/yummy food, but art on the walls all the way out through the back door where this is a WONDERFUL patio. A totally rare find in the 'hood.

Go there. You'll like it. It's warm, friendly, satiating.

Overpriced, out-of-season menu. Service
was friendly and accomodating, but slow and forgetful.

Fantastic service the night we ate dinner here. This could be a great place if the owners updated the environment and the menu. For the prices they're charging it was strange to almost be seated at fold up chairs (I asked for a different table) and I ordered a very odd Moroccan dish, it was basically a can of chick peas in a tomato sauce with some pita bread and a few slices of uncooked tofu. I love that they had up local art and they had a fantastic waiter working that night who saved our meal with his personable attention.
