Diner Reviews
  • "We had a very relaxing dinner with friends at King St. Trio. The menu had great selections and the food was incredible. We found a wine we often drink on the menu and it was moderately priced- perfect for the evening. The service was terrific and we were not rushed through our selection process or dinner. The restaurant is renovated and decorated beautifully. I'd recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "I found the staff incredibly friendly and amazing, but the food was incredibly salty. I would not return back."

  • "Not recommended! Or if you really want to go there,don't get the risotto or the veal shank. Get the lamb."

  • "We were celebrating our 26th anniversary and wanted to go somewhere nice. I bought a Groupon for King Street Trio and we really enjoyed our meal and the service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for any kind of celebration."

  • "To celebrate a major milestone in my wife's life, we invited two friends to celebrate with us at King Street Trio. We all enjoy good conversation and the staff provided a quiet table for us. Already we felt at home, and the rest of the evening was outstanding. My wife and friends ordered fish dishes and I ordered Osso buco. They thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and my only comment (not complaint) was that the Osso buco was not true to its' origins and tended towards Oktoberfest cuisine. It was tasty, but the subtle taste of the veal and bone marrow was lost to the sauce and a slight overcooking. It could have been gourmet pork schnitzel. Nevertheless, this was not crucial to our enjoyment of the evening, and I look forward to our next visit."

  • "My three friends and I went there to celebrate a new job and for the first time, it was absolutely amazing. Our waitress was super attentive but not hovering, and recommended some delicious dishes. At the table, we had oysters, veal osso bucco, pork tenderloin, gnocchi and scallops, and the mussels, along with the pumpkin spice latte Creme brûlée, pear and apple torte, and dessert of the evening which was a frozen brownie ice cream sundae. Everything was amazing! The oysters especially were out of this world! We will be back for sure :)"

  • "I had high expectations after reading other reviews. While quality of food was good, the quantity was lacking. Example a beet salad should have more than 4 very thin slices of beet. Beet salad should high light the roasted beet, roast and fan out whole beet, make it worth while. 2 of my diners had the stuffed pork, although taste was good the pork was very overcooked and dry. The restaurant was not busy as we were first diners, so no excuse for over-cooking. The service was great. Comparing it to 649 restaurant in Woodstock the food was lacking, would not return."

  • "We celebrated our daughters graduation from WLU,and had originally planned dinner at 1830hrs. However, the graduation ceremony lasted exactly one hour, and we were to eat early. You were able to accommodator the time change and we arrived at 1700hrs. Service was attentive and "casually efficient" i.e. our server was intuitive to our needs. Food was very good and the experience was very good."

  • "Dined at KST Uptown this past Saturday with a close friend I hadn't seen in a while. It was her first time there and she was very impressed with the decor and the layout of the restaurant. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. I had the scallops to start, she had the the calamari - we shared and both were excellent. KST's calamari is the best I've had - many places over cook and it's chewy, KST's is flavourful with a great texture. My scallops were delicious as usual. I had filet mignon for my main with the Stilton crust - again excellent, with the steak spot-on rare. My friend's trout was excellent as well, her plate was completely clean! Served in a timely fashion, but we never felt rushed - will return!"

  • "We were both surprised we had never heard of the place. They did a great job of the layout. The service was really good, it was a nice night out and we were never rushed. The food had good presentation and done perfectly. We would definetly go back. "

  • "First time that a host actually read the email booking request AND accommodated it!! Very attentive service, by more than one server. Everything was excellent!!"

  • "The appetizers and desserts were fantastic! Great flavours and presentation. The mains missed the mark a bit - they were good, but nothing special. The beer and wine list left a lot to be desired. Nice atmosphere and service, but the food didn't live up to expectations for me. Everything was fine, nothing was amazing. "

  • "I have written a review of this restaurant before but never specifically about dessert. Following the usual excellent meals (steak; seafood paella; chicken linguine; lake trout), the four of us shared three desserts: mochachino cheesecake; flourless chocolate cake; apple&pear torte served with ice cream. All desserts are $8 and made in-house (according to the server). Delicious! Sometimes my wife and I will just go out for a dessert and a glass of wine. The King Street Trio seems the perfect spot for such an adventure (though they do make it tough to just walk in ... which is why we use OpenTable ... but it does take away from the spontaneity of things)."

  • "The wait staff at King Street Trio is very knowledgeable, professional and unobtrusive. Both the food and presentation are terrific; the restaurant is exceptionally clean."

  • "We just had to get back to King Street Trio as my wife needed some oysters and we hadn't been there for almost a year. She began with a Manhattan and I enjoyed a beer while we contemplated our choices. She decided to just eat from the appetizer menu with a side of veggies. Her choices - Oysters Rockefeller and Sea Scallops. I opted for a caesar salad and the New York steak. We complimented the meal with a 1/2 litre of wine. Amazingly we still had room for dessert; the flourless chocolate cake for her and the bourbon pecan pie for me. The service was excellent, with proper timing and no extra interruptions. I made a point to compliment the cooks and especially the maker of the caesar, which was perfectly balanced in flavour and proportion."

  • "Our first time dining at King St. Trio. Shrimp cocktail provided a unique taste experience! My husband had stuffed pork tenderloin and I had the chicken. Both were deeeelish and cooked to perfection! Dessert was pumpkin brulee for me and pecan pie for my husband. Both deserts served elegantly and tasted amazing. Coffee was great, service was amazingly polite and well executed! Pricey but worth every penny! Would highly recommend this dining experience, especially for a unique taste experience. "

  • "My friend and I had never been here before and thought we'd give it a try after so many positive reviews. We both ordered the Filet Mignon. It was cooked perfectly and ruined us for other steaks! The meal was fantastic, you could tell that our waitress really loves her job and we were not rushed. We were there for 2.5 hours with nobody ever making us feel pressured to leave. 5/5. I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "My friend and I went to try it out because there was a groupon. It was our first time going yet we felt very welcome by the host, the waitress, and the chefs. I really liked the open style of kitchen--it was really interesting to watch how they create the food and smell everything in real life instead of it being hidden in a back kitchen."

  • "My husband took me to your establishment for my Birthday. We were greeted quickly with a warm smile, and seated promptly. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Our table was located in front of the open kitchen. We were able to view the action in the kitchen, which was very impressive. The Head Chef was very organized and very professional in his direction to his two assisting chefs. His complementary manner towards his kitchen staff was pleasant to hear as many employee's do not receive a lot of praise on the job. We will definitely mark this restaurant as on of our favorites. Our next visit will definitely be one of the cooking and pairing classes they offer!"

  • " My fiance and I hadn't been out for a date night in awhile. He said it was my choice so I googled restrants in KW area and came across The King Street Trio. I liked what I saw on the reviews so I booked us for dinner. Fantastic!! It was the most enjoyable evening. The staff is friendly, fast and I think sometimes can read your mind. The food was just excellent! I am so looking forward to our next night out. We will be back. "

  • "I have always loved King St. Trio - one of my favourite restaurants in the city. I love it even more now that I am wheat-free. They have lots of gluten free options, in apps and mains, as well as at least one gluten free dessert. My only possible suggestion would be to have some nacho chips or gluten free bread on hand so people could enjoy the Brie and the cheese plate too! Great night, great meal!"

  • "I had been before and really enjoyed it, came back again and it was a little disappointing. The food wasn't as good as my first visit, the service was very good, and really like the decor, but the food for the price was disappointing this time. I would try it again as it could have been a off day or different cook."

  • "reservation was easy and prompt on the web; service was friendly and fast, Waiter was extra friendly. The food was quite good although I did not enjoy the curry soup. It had too much meat and less taste of a curry. The ambiance was fine until the arrival of a group of younger clients. For a brief moment, I though I was in Beertown!"

  • "King street trio is a carnivore's delight! I always take out of town visitors here when I want to show off what Waterloo region does best: locally sourced food cooked to perfection and presented with elegance. We three shared two salads to start and then each enjoyed a different meat dish: rack of lamb with veg and roasted baby potatoes, 10 oz sirloin with garlic mash and veg, and bacon wrapped filet mignon with mash and veg. We shared a bottle of ontario red wine and topped it off with coffees. No room for dessert! This place is a gem. Five stars all round!"

  • "Very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful evening we had even though it was a very late Christmas friends out evening. The food was super and the service could not have been better, we were not rushed yet were not trying to fill time between courses. Amount of food was very plentiful our guys were not asking to stop somewhere on the way home to fill up. Will be back."
