King St. Trio is Fantastic
A simple, but fantastic menu and always an interesting/ambitious feature. Price is in line with similar restaurants in the neighborhood but the service is unmatched (knowledge of menu, friendly and professional).

My friend and I visited on
My friend and I visited on a quiet Tuesday evening and we enjoyed our experience. This was her first visit and she was favourably impressed by the decor, service, and food. I have never been disappointed at "Trio" and will continue to frequent it.

Worth every last penny
We went there for my husbands birthday and we were very happy with the food and service we received. I ordered the roasted chicken pasta and I was very impressed! There are not many times I go to a restaurant and order pasta because usually I can make it at home. But this dish came with home made pasta and the flavours were incredible. My husbands steak was done to his liking. And our friends were very impressed with their meals as well. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a romantic spot or an intimate meal with close friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 36th anniversary. We were seated so as to be able to observe the open kitchen and was impressed with the obvious capability of the chef. The service was considerate and appropriate for a fine dining restaurant. The wine list was balanced and of good quality. The food was done to a turn and presented at a leisurly pace so as to be warm when set before us.
We have no hesitance in recommending King Street Trio.

Food was great. The one thing
Food was great. The one thing that was bothersome was the waitress. We were interrupted by her all the time for no real good reason (e.g., she wanted to get one unused fork from us). Maybe she was too eager/inexperient. The noise was too loud too. Not a place for a quiet conversation at lunch hour.

The restaurant is beautifully
The restaurant is beautifully decorated. We asked for our caesar salad to have a light dressing and that's exactly what we got. It was an excellant salad. Everyone at our table really enjoyed the food. The veal was a little chewy in spots but the sauce and overall plating was excellant.

Great Birthday Dinner
We had my Dad's 80th Birthday dinner in March and my birthday dinner on Friday. Brian and his staff made both occasions special with their attention to us in addition to the great food and service. King Street Trio is a great spot for a special occasion or to enjoy a nice meal in a comfortable atmosphere.

Best Food I've had in a LONG time!
This place had a very modern look to it but was also quite rustic and warm. We order the phyllo wrapped brie as an appetizer to share and let me tell you, it was soooo good. The brie had a nice crisp on the outside and the cheese just melted in our mouths. The onion jam was a perfect match for the brie- I could eat a whole jar of it! I had the crispy skin pickerel (light but full of flavour) and my two coworkers had the Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken which they thoroughly enjoyed. Presentation was beautiful and the food was, as my co worker said, "The best food she's had in a long time." It was simply divine. To top it all off, the chef make a personal visit to our table. What a great place! We will definitely return!

Service was very good, food was tasty and in good quantities. Seemed a little expensive for what we can get at other locations, though.

We have been there at least a dozen times and it is always fantastic!. We have been to every other decent restaurant in KW with Langdon Hall being the only exception and this is by far the best food and service. Don't waste your time and money at the chain places or Wildcraft, Charcoal JLB, Rushes, Sole etc etc. Just come here, your won't be sorry!

We chose to celebrate our 37th anniversary here knowing that service, food, and atmosphere is always perfect and we were again very happy and will be going back very soon.

First Date! Perfect Choice!
I went on a fist date to King Street Trio and i found it to be very relaxing (calmed my nerves right when i walked in! Especially because i was wondering around king st looking for the restaurant feeling quite embarrassed! So i called them for directions and they were very helpful in getting me to their establishment! (Thank you) I had the Scallop and Gnocchi (AMAZING!) my date had the veal scallopinni, both were great choices. Atmosphere was great, they gave us a more private space so we could talk and get to know each other which was very kind of them! Service was great, she had the perfect amount of attentiveness, but she also gave us privacy! Thanks so much for a lovely evening, I will be recommending the restaurant to many people!

My girlfriend and I dined on June 16th and it was by far the best dining experience we have come across in a very long time. Everything from the service to food quality was top notch. The promotional offerings they give you to come back again will definitely have us returning over and over again
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife, son and I were in for a holiday dinner and things were fantastic. Food was hot and well prepared and the service was very attentive. The venue is very impressive with high ceilings and an open kitchen. The calamari was the best we have had in a very long time

Gluten Free Friendly
When I made the reservations on-line, I notified them of my food allergy to wheat and gluten; that we were celebrating our anniversary; and we had to be at show at 7 pm. I was very happy that they accommodated everything. They have 3 gluten free desert items which are spectacular! We tasted 2 of them! We were seated at the window and saw busy uptown Waterloo at sunset. Very nice! Include seating preference on your reservation. We ordered the Scallops and crab cakes for appetizers, Lamb for dinner. All were spectacular in presentation and taste. Food, Wine, Wait Staff were all 10 out of 10! I will be back!

King Street Trio has amazing service, the food has never let us down, and the ambiance is outstanding. Great neighbourhood find in Uptown Waterloo.

Great food and ambiance
We had a little rocky start when the waitress didn't return for our cocktail order for 20 minutes. But a little complaining to her seemed to change things. The Martina's were great to start, as we're the PEI mussels. The local trout over risotto was magnificent! Other choices on the menu looked great . Several different desserts were ordered and all were disappointing.

Food was excellent as always.
Food was excellent as always. The waitress was very green and not very knowledgable (3 weeks). My request for a window seat was met and our anniversary celebration was recognized. We really like the place, but the noise level can be distracting at times.

Lovely Dinner Out with Friends
We were very impressed with the friendly greeting as we arrived at the restaurant. Our server was delightful and extremely helpful. The food was wonderful, beautifully presented and delicious. I appreciated the offer to share a rather large salad with a friend.The only comment of caution would be the noise level in this busy restaurant. The hard surfaces throughout the restaurant caused the various conversations, including those of the staff, to echo and magnify in volume. This, at times, made it difficult to hear one another in conversation at our table of four. it was particularly challenging for one of our party with hearing loss. Overall, though, it was a lovely dinner out with friends.

end of summer feast
Went with neighbours, Shelley our waitress was excellent,answered all questions, was prompt with all courses, but not seeming to be hovering around us. We were seated near the Kitchener area and enjoyed watching the flow of Food and the team work. As for the meal absolutely great!!!!!!!!!! .We ordered a variety of seafood apps. All were fantastic . The main courses as well. I would highly recommend King Street Trio as the BEST restaurant in town
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place, great food
We've come here before (and to a previous location) for lunch and for dinner. The food is consistently good, the staff appropriately attentive. Of course we'll be back,

A Celebratory evening...
An anniversary, 2 birthdays and a graduation were cause for a visit to King Street Trio.
The evening, the food, the service can be summed up in one word...excellent!
Thank you for another wonderful dinner.

Went for lunch and had the salmon with asiago white wine risotto...best risotto ever! I will definitely be back.

I hadn't been to King Street Trio since it was located back on University Ave in Waterloo several years ago. Had walked by the new locale many times and decided it was time to go try it out. Glad we did. We had a fantastic Friday evening - a wonderful full evening of food and wine, with superb service. The decor of the new location is an industrial-finesse, very appealing and actually even somewhat cozy. The food was delectable - the beet chip and goat cheese salad is not to be missed! Presentation was excellent, food portions are very generous (almost too much), and the flavour fusions are on the money. We'll be back again. In fact, we feel this could well become one of our regular haunts.

Food was excellent, as was service. It was a little loud but we did not have to yell at each other.

We do love the food. The Risotto is the best around. This time around Risotto wasn't cooked perfectly and we asked for no pork, seafood risotto came with bacon that they took off plate and brought back

Great Waterloo Restaurant
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Met with some friends that I hadn't seen in a while and the waitress gave us our space while being attentive to when we needed anything. Very relaxing, did not feel rushed through at all. The food was excellent from the appetizers, main course through to the dessert. I would highly recommend for date night or small intimate get together.

This was our first visit to King Street Trio and enjoyed it very much. From the martini to the Creme Brulee we enjoyed a lovely meal. Notable servings were the appetizers - scallops dish and the mussels. The bread was awesome. We would definitely go back and try another meal.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent in every way!
We decided late to go out for dinner, and were very pleased to be able to get in at King Street Trio thanks to Open Table. The food and service were both excellent! My husband had the NY Sirloin Steak, and it was done to perfection. My Rack of Lamb was fabulous! We will return again as soon as we can!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visit King St Trio a few times each month, and have always had outstanding service and food! Smaller restaurant thT often gets missed, a definite A++ gem

A Great Place for a Business Lunch
3 of my colleagues and I were looking for restaurant with good food, exceptional service and a quite environment to share a meal and discuss business. King Street Trio meet all of those requirements. My colleagues comments were very positive.

The service was excellent.
The service was excellent. The wait staff anticipate needs and you never have to ask for anything because it will be there before you need it.
The food was tasty but my garlic mashed potatoes were not hot ( I warmed them with the mushrooms I ordered--they were piping hot). My husband's steak was a little bit chewy.
The martini list is great and we enjoyed our cocktails.
The menu is good (not too much, not too limited). I would definitely go back and try something else.
I also appreciate that because we made a reservation we got an excellent table. I hate going to a restaurant and the people in front, who don't have a reservation, get seated at a better table because they happened to get there 30 seconds ahead of you.

Loved our food! All 4 of us loved our apps and dinner!
Slow bringing initial drinks, however service was great otherwise.

Excellent Birthday dinner!
Recently went in for my birthday dinner with 13 other friends. I wanted to try something new and I was not disappointed. The entire experience was amazing... great food, great service and AMAZING desserts. The restaurant was easily accessible and in a great location. They were able to accomodate a large group and the service never faltered.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
My first visit here was for Mother's Day dinner with my husband and son. We were greeted promptly at the door and I found the staff very warm and welcoming. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable, able to answer any questions we had about menu particulars. The pyhyllo wrapped Brie was to die for, and the fish cakes equally good. My ribeye was perfectly cooked and really a melt in your mouth steak! Hubby had the pickerel and quinoa and said it was excellent. Service was timely, even with the restaurant almost full. The red rose given to all Moms was a nice touch - definetely going back!!!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a small party for lunch. Every request was accommodated. The food choices for the daily specials were delicious and the service was impeccable.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I enjoyed it very much taking my mother out to dinner. Th only suggestion I have - she ordered garlic mashed potatoes and she got enough for 3 people... to much and a waste. Fewer potatoes would have been fine.
The filet we both ordered was excellent.
The waitor Stephan was top notch... and certainly make the experience much better. He was great.

King Street Trio Amazes
While on an anniversary dinner I was treated to a beautiful atmosphere, fantastic food, great service and for a university student like myself most importantly all at an extremely reasonable price for such good quality. Overall a fantastic dining experience I'd recommend for anyone. Especially great for treating that special someone to a fancy romantic dinner or even just a great lunch stop. Highly recommend it.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great spot for an anniversary date
We went here for an anniversary date and couldn't be happier with our choice. The price point is a little higher but the food and the service were fantastic. Definitely will be returning.

Menu change is exciting
recently visited King Street Trio and they have changed their menu (abit) Left the items you love still on the menu, but have added some new and exciting dishes.
