French techniques, light-handed, focusing on the highest quality ingredients available. Joining Hildebrand in the kitchen are Chef de Cuisine Brandon Soverall and Sous Chef, Pat Sommers.
The restaurant, unlike any other in Houston in both cuisine and design, represents an artistic outlet for all involved.

Triniti Ratings and Reviews

This was not my first visit to Triniti, but it was a disappointing visit. Although not crowded, the service was very slow. My brunch frittata was lukewarm, dry, and just not very good. My companion was satisfied, but it takes a lot to mess up scrambled eggs and bacon.

This was an incredible restaurant. The food was wonderful and the ambiance was even better. The deserts were out of this world. It is not an everyday dining place but it was great. The som let us taste expensive wine and he had wonderful gadgets.

Fantastic. Across the board-service, food, drinks, everything was top notch. What a spectacular experience. We have eaten all across Houston, lots of stars, holes in wall, you name it. This is now one of our favorite places. Everything, everything was top notch. The food was FANTASTIC- even starting with the butter, yes, indeed. The scallop in the corn risotto was a stand-out, as was the red snapper, and the strawberry shortcake. Honestly, there was not a wrong note all everything. Everything was deliciously and thoughtfully prepared. Just as we wondered where one of our small plates went, a manager came over and said the Chef was not happy with the first product and a second plate was being prepared. Moments later it appeared and was well worth the extra (maybe) 2 minute wait.
We will be back again, and again, and again.

It was my first time at Triniti. I couldn't be more impressed by the food and service. I was completely blown away by the cocktails and then the food. I cannot believe I've never been here. I would highly suggest Triniti to everyone.

Overall experience was one of the worst:
1. Had to ask for the wine menu 3 times
2. Waited for 46 minutes between appetizer and entree
3. Overpriced considering the quality and quantity
4. Waiter didn't check on us

A first class restaurant with great food and service. There were plenty of good wines available as well. The small plates are really small, so you will end up spending a lot to get the food that you want, though it will all taste great.

Everything was great! I was greeted by smiles and friendliness. I came with a friend, and she loved the place as well. Robert was our server, and he gave an excellent recommendation for our wine, and was "on point" for his recommendation for the Burger meal. He was an awesome server! I loved the décor, and the place was clean. I really liked the open-kitchen concept in the back. Even the art was a conversation starter for my friend and me. Even though I have a different taste in art than the buyer of the pieces in the restaurant, all the pieces at least sparked a conversation. Thank you so much for such a great place. Please give Robert a raise because those dimples and that smile really made the experience 110%! Thank you, Robert!

We ordered a large number of dishes. Of those, there were two dishes for which we did not care. The collard greens were incredibly salty (like mouthful of salt w/each bite.) And the octopus was just okay. Everything else we tried was incredible. The tomato and farmers cheese dish was incredible. The foie gras breakfast was almost perfect, except for one issue: the foie was not properly cooked. Some parts of the piece of foie were seared beautifully, while other parts were undercooked. These are minor issues.
The biggest thing that lowers my rating of Trinit is the service. I felt as though the bussers were rushing us. Every time we would lay down our forks, a busser would attempt to clear the table.
Additionally, I wanted to keep both the menu and the wine/cocktail list at the table, as we planned to spend a few hours there eating and drinking. Suddenly, some guy, who I guess was a manager, came and said, "I need to take the menus and wine list, if that's okay?" I said, "We would like to keep the menus and list, if that's okay. I'm going to order a bit more." He said, "Well, I'll bring everything back to you when you're ready to order."
Then, he took the menus, and never came back.
This restaurant probably lost an additional $200 in sales simply because we were rushed by everyone, and then didn't even have the ability to order more.
I even asked my server for the menu back, and he only brought me the cocktail list. And then, after I returned from the men's room, he had already cleared the table, and placed the dessert menu in front of us.
This was a very weird experience. It was almost like they needed us to leave so someone else could sit at our table. We we very rushed by the FOH staff.
We will return to give Triniti a second chance, but I won't allow them to rush me, nor to take anything from my table until I, the guest, am ready for it to be cleared.
Some serious etiquette and hospitality training needs to take place.
Overpriced, poor food
I am a foodie and went to Triniti to eat with other foodies but we were disappointed. The dishes were wildly overpriced and the dishes were very small. For four people, we spent $500 and left feeling hungry. I am not someone who eats very much either, so this was very disappointing. The fish was chewy and the scales were mixed in with the fish so I was not able to eat it.
Sorry but i was underwhelmed
We were actually very disappointed by our overall experience. The food was just OK and the drinks were awful. The waiter was nice but he never came back and asked us if we needed anything or how were our drinks or food. On one hand I like that he wasn't intrusive but on the other hand he could see the drinks were just sitting there untouched. I'm sorry to write this but i was really excited about going ;-(
Food was amazing and very unique, many interesting dishes with combinations I haven't seen before and all was very delicious. The service was exceptional, our waiter was extremely nice, explained the menu very well and answered all of our questions, checked in on us enough, but not too much. Great lighting, enjoyed the decor, and was an all around awesome experience.

I very much enjoyed my dinner at Triniti. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and top notch. Menu offers diverse options and the "chef's creations" section has some unique dishes to try that are offered for a limited time. The decor was very modern and calming. Not too dark, not too noisy although the noise could have been due to the fact that the crowd was very light for a Friday night. I was quite surprised. It's great place with a great bar and excellent staff and food. The price may deter some as I thought it was a bit on the high end. Overall, I would be a repeat customer
Lunch at Triniti
I have been taking people to lunch at Triniti because the restaurant is beautiful, food is excellent and it's quiet and you can talk. However, I will no longer do so. Apparently the lunch crowd is small so we were put in what is usually the small event room. They had the entire beautiful restaurant available but we were put in a room with windows overlooking the parking lot. The room was very cold even after we asked 3 times to have the air conditioning turned down. The music was loud. Then a table of 8 was seated right next to us and we had trouble hearing each other. There was only one other table of 2 which was also seated in this little event room. If we had been in the main restaurant, noise would not have been an issue. I asked the waiter and he said this was their new approach. We could sit there or in the bar area - where the tables are not really conducive to eating lunch. So my great find is now off my list.
We were really looking forward to our night at Triniti - we had heard many good things. The bar was empty at 8PM on a Saturday night, and that should have been a tip off, perhaps, but not the bar's fault! The bar was awesome - the bartenders were lovely, obviously know their stuff. Our server at dinner was also great, and the sommelier was very nice. The wine was wonderful. The food? Eh. My husband and I shared the grilled octopus, it was all char. We then shared the special at the server's recommendation that it be shared; it was rib eye and for $140 (!!!!!), it was nothing spectacular. Especially given that the side sauce was suspiciously reminiscent of A.1. (I know that it wasn't A1, but it was definitely a relative). The chocolate martini was amazing. The night was basically saved by the drinks/wine for us. I probably wouldn't go back, only because we don't have many opportunities to go out.
Not so great
My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times and although the experience was ok it was only ok. Not just this restaurant but all restaurants should make more of an effort to know who is frequenting their restaurant and maybe pay attention to their customer base- We have never once seen the chef step out of the kitchen at this restaurant and at least acknowledge his patrons- If the food or service is not terrific, one will go to the next restaurant. There is just too much competition to accept an ok overall experience- Will not return
We were early and still were seated by a wall instead of by one of many available windows. That should have been a hint of things to come. The cocktails were small and overpriced and the drink list was nothing like what it used to be. What happened to all that slick advertising about the cocktails? But then, our food was cold and unexciting. The restaurant kindly removed 2 of the steaks from the bill but still... And THE, even though we pre-ordered (birthday), our dessert was wrong. Overall a crummy experience except the waitress, who was great. Such a huge change from the last 3 times we were there. What happened???
