Tired Voyeur – After a long day working in the city this out of towner loves to sit at the bar and graze off the Triomphe menu. The little bar bustles with activity as the theatre crowd and hotels guests come and go. Watch the city gear up and let the bartender select the wine and drinks for each course. First class dining in a first class town.
Triomphe is a triumph – An oasis with subdued lighting, accents of colors, and tiered, recessed ceiling are a wonderful backdrop for a sumptuous meal, elegantly and perfectly presented at every turn. The chef and staff are inviting and exemplify star-level service.
dream date place – great place for both locals and visitors. Friendly staff, great food, reasonably priced.
very romantic in a contemporary setting.
Excellent across the board – I hosted a group of 11 adults last June. Every aspect of our wining and dining experience was superb. Youthful, exhuberant, friendly, attentive service. Magnificent food. Marvelous wine selection (correctly poured). Charming ambience. And excellent value, considering the mid-town location. As an aside, I find that reviewers' comments regarding value (too expensive, overpriced and so on) must be taken with a grain of seasalt, since that is so often a subjective appraisal based on one's position on the socio-economic scale (i.e., annual income).
waitstaff quite knowledgeable, in my opinion – Rebuttal to previous post:
I frequent Triomphe and see waiters fielding ridiculous questions to provide service for guests. Last week, the poor waitress was asked about the reasoning behind the name of a wine bottle, nothing about the wine itself. Rather than shrug off the question, one of self-indulgent nonsense, she called the wine representative for the answer. The guest then chose another wine, butchering the name of the winemaker in the process, causing the waitress to have to ask the guest to point it out. For the previous poster's reference, I know for a fact that the Moulin de Lagnet is the ONLY red Bordeaux by the glass, so she could not have made that mistake you assume she made. More credit should be given to those that provide not only the transportation of your food, as you put it, but a large part of your overall dining experience.
Romantic, cozy, money's worth – What a nice place in the middle of the city. The food, staff, and drinks were all amazing. Very nice, small and intimate place. I will definitely visit here again. LOVED IT
Excellent – excellent, intimate restaurant where the attentive & friendly waitress actually knew what she was talking about. not too sure about it being that french but they are certainly good wat what they do.
One of the Best French Resturants in NYC – If you want to have a quite evening without the noisy crowd see this place. I visited this place on Saturday night and it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this place for either a romantic or business diner.
A Winner – Triomphe is a wonderful place to dine if you're going to the theatre or not. The food is extraordinary, the service is friendly and professional, and the ambience is wonderful. It's a small and intimate place where the wait staff know what is being served. All four of us had different entrees and we were all delighted. The lamb and guinea hen are fantastic choices.
Just Average – We tried Triomphe for dinner before seeing a show. The food wasn't particulary French, but on average was good. Nothing truly memorable about the meal and no standout dishes. The wine list is competent. I tend to be rather picky, as I dine out a lot, and my companion seemed to enjoy her dinner slightly more than me, although she was not wowed. If you want a solid meal before heading down the street to Broadway, Triomphe definitely is one of the many good choices in the neighborhood. Although next time, I will try a different restaurant in the hopes that I will be wowed.
