We had two experiences at Triptych and both instances were just so-so. Our first dining experience was brunch and our second was the dinner. Comparing these two experiences, I definitely prefer the brunch over dinner because dinner was not very good at all. Aside from a few snafu with our dining certificate from opentable, we thought the food was just mediocre. The worst offender’s got to be the sashimi plate. They use this smoked salmon and piled it on with some foul tasting mushroom thing that is a bit bitter and sour. I do not recommend it.
The restaurant also seems to be trying too hard to be “artsy” because aside from being a restaurant, it features a live DJ during brunch and arts by various artists on their wall. Their unisex bathroom also seems to be a shrine of some sort of the 60’s-80’s and they have a patio in the back that looks a bit like an afterthought because all their junk was piled around there as well.
