We had the seven course tasting and it did not disappoint! Each course was tasty and well prepared. Was stuffed afterwards! Our server was phenominal. I was surprised the place was empty on a Saturday night... well worth another visit!

In a city filled with great restaurants, Tristan stands out as one of the best....right up there with those in our favorite restaurant cities/areas: New York and Sonoma. Friendly and very attentive staff. Well trained to manage gluten free diet....even served gluten free bread.
