Excellent service. celebrating
Excellent service. celebrating early mothers day and requested outdoor dining for the view. I asked if they could have a bottle of wife's favorite malbec and some fresh flowers on our table waiting for when we got there. hostess didn't even flinch at my request, she said it would be no problem! 4 beautiful large orange roses and one red one were placed in a vase on the center of our table (at no extra cost). that night a storm rolled in , the hostess stepped it up and quickly found us a table inside with a view. Great dinner, awesome wine and a great waiter made the night complete. Thanks to the Trio Management Crew for setting high standards and expecting nothing less from your staff.

wonderful place for outdoor brunch
The service is amazing and they handle kids wonderfully. Only slight annoyance - aggressive birds hanging nearby!

College graduation celebration
We had a wonderful experience at the Four Seasons celebrating our daughter's college graduation and her 22nd birthday.
Thanks for making this memory so special and tasty!

Sunday Brunch at Trio is as good as it gets. A bit pricey but I have never felt it was not good value. Our favorite family dining experience in Austin.

The food and service are terrific; have the beets!
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my standard 'let's celebrate a friend's birthday' place. Food and service is always great and they always recognize the birthday person with a personalized desert tray.

Great Father's Day Brunch
We had a great experience at Trio last weekend. Great service and fantastic food. We had a 9 month old baby with us the staff made life very easy for us. Next time we are in Austin, we will definitely give Trio a try for dinner.

Best brunch in Austin!
My family goes to brunch every weekend but had never been to TRIO because we have a baby and a 5 year old...we were concerned about it being appropriate for them. We went for Father's Day brunch. Not only was it kid-friendly, but we were very comfortable in the atmosphere. It wasn't stuffy or "fine dining" feeling. The food was outstanding! There was a HUGE variety and even lots of gluten free options that were clearly labeled! Gluten free pancakes and muffins were available, as well as omelets, breakfast meats galore, prime rib, sushi, salads, charcuterie meats/cheeses, and a glorious dessert bar finished off with bottomless mimosas. We will most definitely be back!

Excellent Rendezvous Location
This was the perfect location to reunite childhood friends. For lunch, Trio is bright and scenic. The service is impeccable and the food and cocktails are carefully prepared and quite delicious. Wonderful time at Trio!

This was one of the best brunches
This was one of the best brunches I've ever had. Everything was displayed beautifully and all of the food tasted great. The servers were so friendly and attentive. We hope to go back soon!

Wine Parings Superb and Fresh Food
We had just seen the movie "Somm" and were in the mood for a glass of wine and some good food. Shared a lovely half dozen oysters with a beautiful Riesling recommend by the Masters Candidate himself, Mark Sayre. Then on to a salad and vegetable selection for me (broccolini with garlic and roasted beets) and a fish dish for the hubby. (I had a glass of Nebbiolo and the hubby had a white Burgundy,) This is a great place for any kind of dining desires and the wine bar happy hour is a favorite here with many wine selections half price by the glass and a selection of half price apps. Don't forget about this spot because it is in a hotel. River views and superb patio, too.

Get what you pay for
Typical Four Seasons / Trio understanding of the fine dining market. Great presentation of very good food (first you eat with your eyes, then you eat with your mouth).
Excellent knowledgeable servers, quality food, outstanding views and ambiance. The Rolls Royce of Austin restaurants.

Great upscale lunch spot
Trio gave us customized service for a birthday celebration, and the food was delicious. Very accommodating staff, in keeping with the high quality expected of a Four Seasons hotel.
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The dining experience at Trio is top notch. We celebrated our mother's birthday, and our every request and more was attended to. The food was delicious, our server (Naj) was terrific, and the beautiful landscaping outside made for great photo opportunities after dinner. Naj even offered to play photographer and got a great shot for us. An all around thumbs up!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was a little slow since we didn't order off the lunch express menu. But it was very good food!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A pleasant experience
We enjoyed dinner at TRIO on a Wednesday night. It was surprisingly busy. The food and presentation were very nice. The service took a little long between each course but we always had what we needed (drinks, bread). I would recommend this restaurant for a nice, romantic dinner.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Food and Service
Although the decor leaves a little to be desired, the food and the service more than make up for it. We sat inside across from the wine room, and the table was almost awkwardly close to neighboring tables, but it was adequate. I expected more people to be dressed a bit nicer, but it is Austin. The view of the lake and the landscaping is incomparable. The food was everything we expected and more. The chicken created a whole new standard for poultry. The crab cake was a little dry but had little filler which is great. The brussels sprouts and the truffle mac and cheese were absolutely delicious (although the brussels sprouts' odor will semi-permanently permeate any room it inhabits). We will definitely be back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my third time to have brunch at Trio. It was outstanding yet again. Love it.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Four Seasons Brunch
Outstanding service. I was on a diet so I brought my own salad dressing. After I got to the table, I realized I had left it in my car.
The hostess overheard me say I needed to go back to the car to get it. She said "no problem, we will have it brought to you".
Then the waiter offered to take the dressing to the kitchen so they could "toss my salad". When the meal was finished, they even
took my salad container to the kitchen to be washed. Everyone went over the top to be gracious, considerate and helpful. It was
one of my finer dining experiences due to the staff's true caring and helpfulness. They went out of their way to make the meal

Brunch with three generations
Its hard to feed a 2 year old and a 75 year old birthday "girl" at the same time. And keep it classy. But for the Four Seasons, all in a days work to feed our extended family of six, ranging from the boisterous to the fragile. The brunch is spectacular, and covers the gamut from carnivores, to vegetarians, from fish lovers to sweets lovers. The service was great - and a little cupcake with a candle came out right on time delighting everyone. The room is beautiful, looking out onto the rolling slope and leads to the perfect stroll along the lake afterwards to work a little of it off.
The entire experience was a joy - valet park up top for the discounted rate ($8), stroll down, eat like a king, promenade, wander back up and drive off. a joy.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Trio is an amazing restaurant, and a complete package. The service and food are both amazing.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
By far one of the best brunch spots with delicious variety. Everything is fresh and the staff is over the top. I have never been disappointed with my experience at Trios for brunch, lunch or dinner.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A perfect evening
My wife and I went to Trio (had been there before) for a wedding anniversary evening. The service was great, the weather sublime, and the food outstanding as usual. Of course, you can expect the food to be expensive, but for a special night out, this is the place!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great "Girls" Night Out!
We celebrated a friends birthday and the service was excellent. From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were treated special and attended to. The menu questions we had were answered and the food was superb. The "surprise" happy birthday signature on the dessert was a great way to end the evening.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sunday Brunch at Trio - a treat
We love to spend a night at The Four Seasons for the occasional stay-cation amongst the crazy kid schedules that return with fall and school. This weekend was punctuated with brunch at Trio, the delightful restaurant at the base of TFS. Wow. Mimosas with fresh squeezed orange juice are a nice start. The breakfast course was highlighted by Eggs Benedict on an english muffin toasted to just the right crunch. The lemon and blueberry french toast was also tasty.
For lunch, we enjoyed beef and seafood. The Texas smoked prime rib was amazing, with delicious smoky flavor. We finished with jumbo peeled, chilled shrimp and giant shelled crab claws.
Dessert was highlighted by the chocolate hazelnut crunch, and the moist carrot cake.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful place to enjoy lunch with friends; bright, open.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with lunch. Our entire meal was exquisitely presented, precisely prepared, and wonderfully tasteful. We ordered desert, and they presented us with a special congratulation plate. We ate outdoors, and it was great overlooking the lake. We will return often.
8/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very nice, especially the patio.
Chose Trio for an anniversary dinner. We sat outside in the evening and really enjoyed the vibe. The service was very capable and prompt. The food was tasty and well prepared and the chef even came to the table before and after our meal to make sure my vegetarian wife had a great meal (she did). I had the Akaushi Strip and although it was very good, it was no better than steaks I've had at local steakhouses and at $52, did not live up to its promise. Great place for a romantic dinner.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upscale but not snobby dining
The food was inventive and delicious, and the service was fabulous. Our waitress was knowledgable and friendly and attentive without being ever-present. The main downside of our visit was where we were seated: We were right near the kitchen and the unofficial congregating spot of the staff, so whenever they were chatting or giving each other instructions, they were doing so right next to our table. But it was a minor interruption, and overall we had a great time at TRIO.

We enjoyed the brunch which was very good. The brunch buffet is well stocked with multiple types of food that will suit just about anyone. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

Another Wonderful Brunch at Trio
We visit Trio for brunch roughly two times a year. It is always a special time for our family. Service is impeccable, brunch options are second to none and the experience is never disappointing. I'm not certain I like the new set-up of the various food stations but that is a minor issue and I thought the dessert options were more limited than in the past. Still all of our favorites were there and as good as always.
We definitely will return.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Memorable Wine and Food
Our friends wanted a convenient downtown location to celebrate but be able to have healthy fresh food. The wonderful watermelon gazpacho, salads, delicious fish dishes and stunning sides of beets and Brussels sprouts did the trick. We only had three drinkers and were just in the mood for a refreshing white, maybe one glass each. The sommelier himself brought some choices to taste and served our selection beautifully. Outstanding food and wine selection and you can have it your way here, too.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
. We were celebrating our 45th Anniversary as well as my husbands 68th Birthday. Upon arrival our waiter immediately acknowleged this fact and at the end of our meal brought us a large plate which at the top written in Chocolate said "Happy 45th Anniversary and at the bottom "Happy 68th Birthday". The plate also contained a Chocolate Cupcake trimmed with fresh strawberries and a candle as well as several pieces of dark chocolate pecan bark. Yummy! When paying the check our waiter offered to box up some of the desserts from the Brunch for us to take home and enjoy later. Food was great and waiter was wonderful. I recommend Trio for it's food and service. Thank you Trio for making our special day more special.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The evening Trio manager exceeded all expectations when he created a flower arrangement - on his own - when my flower order didn't arrive. I've been to a lot of upscale restaurants and none of them even came close to this level of customer service. As far as I'm concerned, Trio is the only place for me for upcoming dinners and special occasions.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extremely thoughtful & knowledgeable waitstaff- bar none. Naj is the waiter who I would request again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we visit Austin, we often
When we visit Austin, we often try to get to the Sunday Brunch. It is always excellent. We had a large party (10) and they put is in a room with one other table for large party. We were out of the way and more private to visit within our group. The food is always great for the brunch and this visit was no exception. We had not been to Austin for awhile, but my oldest daughter recently had a birthday and she requested that we go to Austin and go to Trio's brunch the weekend following her birthday. It was great.

An eating experience
This was a special occasion for us to treat friends from out of town. Jonathan our sever was extremely helpful in menu selections. The smoked rib eye was prepared to perfection. So was the special of the day - flounder. Side dishes were delicious and plentiful.
The ambiance was enjoyed by all. Truly a fine eating experience.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top Three Restaurant!
When we need a spectacular meal in a spectacular setting we go to Trio and it never disappoints. Fantastic meals on everyone's plate and great service and attention. Always choose trio!!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always Fabulous Sunday Brunch
We have never been disappointed at Trio for the Sunday or Holiday brunches
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow we had friends that recommended Trio as a spot to experience while in Austin. Great recommendation. We arrived and Trio was very hip and had a fun buzz. Great place to people watch. We actually saw a well know musician at table right next to us. The star of the night was the meal. Great steaks and wine selection was endless. Staff was incredible. We had the filet and smoked ribeye.Both were excellent. This was the best meal we had in Austin which says a lot because the food scene here is great.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Love the Four Seasons and this is a perfect restaurant for the hotel. Can't go wrong eating here or grabbing a nice wine.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
TRIO always delivers a top notch wait staff, fabulous menu selections and a great wine list. Our favorite Austin dining location.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a fabulous dinner at Trio, the food and wine were excellent, we were not rushed at all even though the dining room was full due to F1. An extra treat to see all the beautiful cars parked outside! We will be back next year, both for F1 and for Trio!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
From making the reservation, being seated, ordering
starters that dazzled like salmon tartare and oysters, our dining
experience is always amazingly consistent, service top notch,
ambiance very lively but not too much, hands down a must go
to restaurant for dinner and brunch! The bone in steak is delish
with 3 dipping sauces and your peach and donut dessert wooed
the table! A+ and I am a picky diner!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Chose the patio
Trio has great food but the inside looks like a company cafeteria. So if you can ask for the patio, it's a gem.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I enjoyed the special menu prior to seeing Chicago. It was our first time at Trio and was well worth the trip. Food was wonderful, wine was great and the pre-theatre experience is something we will continue to enjoy as we attend future theatre and/or concerts.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We chose Trio to celebrate two birthdays. From beginning to end was fabulous service and food. Trio customized the menus to say Happy Birthday and at the end rolled it up for us to take home! The filet mignon was excellent as well as the sides we ordered. The desserts were amazing!!!
You must try this restaurant. You will not be disappointed!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our fav dining places
There were nine of us. Everyone loved everything they ate. Our waitress was fabulous and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful family evening. It's a great dinner everytime we eat there.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Mostly a hit, with one big miss
We went to TRIO to celebrate our son's 25th birthday. For the most part, we had an outstanding experience, although the waiter was somewhat distracted by a large party going on outside. The one flaw was the steak that one member of the party ordered rare, which arrived medium well. We immediately sent it back, but he did not get his food until the rest of the party had finished their meals, which we shared with him. The management was very gracious about this mistake, however, and took the steak off the bill. The commemorative menu was a lovely touch, as were the chocolate birthday greetings on my son's dessert. As always, an elegant evening.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our dinner experience was nothing short of amazing!!! Our server was very nice and kind. He had a very extensive knowledge of the menu and made several solid suggestions for our dining pleasure. There were several tables with children, however they were barely noticable. The menu was short, but each selection seemed like the perfect meal. It was a little overwhelming, but our server was able to explain each item in laymans terms. Brussel Sprouts and Mac n Cheese were our favorite side items. The Akaushi Strip was possibly the best cut of meat I have ever tasted and the Red fish was also top notch. This restaurant may not be your every weekend spot, but it's a perfect place for a special evening or celebratory dinner.
