Trevisio Restaurant

6550 Bertner St. Houston, TX 77030 | Kirby-West U | 713-749-0400

Location Description:

Tented light fixtures and glass pendants hanging from the ceiling give the dining room an I Dream of Jeannie ambience. The extravagant decorations make patrons forget they're in a parking garage in the Medical Center. The food may not be very innovative, but chef John Buchanan does a brilliant job on straight-ahead dinner-house fare like rack of lamb with polenta, and steak with goat cheese mashed potatoes. As an upscale fine dining restaurant for those who are affluent, but not particularly adventurous, Trevísio shines.
