A word from Tria Restaurant, Bar & Event Center
Warm. Fresh. Real. Everything at Tria... from the seasonal, made-from-scratch, fresh food, friendly service to the warm and inviting ambience was designed to deliver these three simple qualities. From the moment you enter, it is apparent that Tria is not your ordinary restaurant. The natural woods and stone, wood-burning fireplaces, art and accessories all depict Tria's commitment to creating a delightful dining experience for their guests, offering something for everyone. The menu is fresh regional American and the extensive wine list was created to provide both selection and value (finally a restaurant that provides both!). Recognized as one of the "Twin Cities Best New Restaurants" by Mpls/St.Paul Magazine, the list of accolades continues to grow. You might say that Tria, like their wine, gets better with age. So if you're looking for a night out with someone special, dinner with the family, entertaining clients, or simply enjoying a quick bite with friends, come visit Tria!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I don't know why we have not found this great place before. Food was excellent and our waiter was good, fun, and liked to learn how and where the food came from when we asked."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I chose Tria to celebrate my birthday because you get a free bottle of wine with a price matching your age. I was pleased with the long list I had to choose from. The special red wine I chose for the meal was great! However, I would not go again. Our starters were crab cakes ($11), and fras gras ($12). I ordered a glass of white wine to accompany my appetizer and waited long after the appetizers came for the waiter to bring the wine (after a reminder). The appetizers were not great & over priced. Happily, our steaks were perfectly cooked. The waiter brought a birthday dessert to share. It was good, but he did not offer a dessert menu to my husband who would have chosen his dessert. We had a great inside table. It was quiet."

  • "We really felt special and very much at home, thanks to the attentiveness and down-to-earth friendliness of the woman who waited on our table."

  • "We went to celebrate birthdays and the subtract your age feature allowed us to have a very nice bottle of wine with our dinner."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Very slow. Our waiter never did ask us if we wanted anything to drink. No coffee offered. This was disappointing. Then, he boxed the incorrect meal for home. He did not interact with us - we felt ignored."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The atmosphere at Tria is very nice and relaxing. We were there for dinner. The food and wine was very good and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Great food great service at a fair price. Dined outdoors and it made it even nicer. Celebrated our anniversary and was treated to dessert. Will definitely return but more often."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I have been there before for apps, dinner and brunch and it is generally good. We were there for a later (8 pm) dinner on a rainy Saturday night. Service was not attentive. Took forever to get beverages or place our order. It was after the dinner rush - where was everyone? Food took a long time. My risotto was cold - but again, no server to check on us so I couldn't send it back. Not impressed at all - felt like we were an inconvenience."

  • "Close to home, great waitress who took good care of us and even handled a food allergy. Provided an anniversary dessert. Food was pricey as we got 2 scallops for $10, won't do that again! But it was a great evening on the patio."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We came for the free birthday wine, but we'll be back for the food. We all had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We have experienced some very disappointing dining experiences over the last couple of years, but decided to try them again. We were very pleasantly surprised. Had a good waiter - it did get busy and service slowed a little, but overall he was much better than we've had and we were very pleased. The food was great (Trout and steak). We were celebrating a special birthday and were disappointed to find they now have a separate wine list for such events and none of the wines on this list were on the main wine list. We thought for sure these were going to be cheap and nasty wines with jacked up prices. Again, very pleasantly surprised to find a $62 bottle of Merlot was extremely nice. Overall had a most enjoyable evening - we'll be back."

  • "On the patio Friday night. It's a great setting-- stone floor, a variety of table sizes, umbrellas on some. Fine drinks-- Death's Door Martini is excellent. I had the bouillabaisse-- very nicely done. I love the beet salad, although the Caesar and the wedge salads also look great. The comfort food in the form of their wild rice meatloaf is great. My wife has a habit of ordering one of their steaks-- consistently terrific. There is a fine sense of welcome at Tria that pervades the place. It's a comfortable and easy place to be. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I would give a more favorable recommendation if either the food had been a step or two better or the prices 30% lower. "

  • "The first time I ate at Tria, I asked the waiter for vegan suggestions. He talked to the chef, and I had a wonderful vegan dinner. I was so impressed, I came back a week later, with a writer visiting the Twin Cities to see a production of his play. This time, when I asked the waiter for vegan suggestions, he was completely unhelpful. He told me to order side vegetables. What a disappointment, and such a difference from my first experience. Also, despite having made reservations on a Wednesday night, I arrived to discover that we'd have to sit inside. They couldn't have a place available for us outside on a beautiful evening? Really? I won't be going back."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "When we made reservations we wrote on there 40th anniversary. It would have been nice for the hostess or our server to know that without us having to tell them when we got there. It would add that special touch. We did enjoy the meal and the free desert and Champagne was a nice touch. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We are regulars at Tria and have noticed a definite decline in service and quality of food over the past few months. Our server seemed irritated with us from the start. When we ordered martinis, they came in small juice classes with no explanation. When asked about it she said they were slammed and she seemed irritated again. Worth noting, Tria was not busy this past Friday night when we arrived at 6 PM. Our bruschetta was burnt, we had one half of a cherry tomato on our salad, and our beef was fair at best. We go there for the patio, but from now on, we will have to dine at one of the 29 other "best patios" in the Twin Cities. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Tria is a great place. The food is great. I love the spinach salad, the scallops, the beef tenderloin medallions or the Shrimp and grits, and the homemade ice cream. There are many other choices. And the wine list has very nice options in many price points. It is a good place to take work clients. For larger groups they have a back room. The service is good too. "

  • "Good food selection. Great birthday wine special. Bartender extremely slow "

  • "The food was wonderful!!! I love the patio area when the weather is a little warmer."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "There were 5 of us. Two were celebrating their birthdays. 5-5-55 & 5-5-56. Disappointed to find a set wine list to pick from and only one person could have the choice per table. This was never stated in any of the literature that only one could be celebrated at a table. Very disappointed. Food was the best."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "I had been interested in trying Tria for a special occasion. While the service and environment were very good, the food was just average and could have been more generous portions for the price. My food could have been warmer. The dessert was good, but again for the price, expected more quantity and quality."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Great place, very accommodating. We're seated in a drafty corner. Asked to be moved and they moved us right away. Good food, great service."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD EXCEPT THE DUCK ENTREE WAS TO SALTY, THEY COMPT'ED THAT. SO ALL IN ALL IT WAS VERY GOOD."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Very comfortable dining rooms. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We have been here with large groups as well as just the 2 of us. The mussels and scallop appetizers are always a good choice. I loved the grilled trout- nice size filet. The service was well-timed and friendly. Nice wine selection. It was our anniversary and Tria's complimentary dessert and glass of champagne was a very nice touch. "

  • "Great Staff. Very enjoyable Mothers Day Brunch. The food was superb!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were able to find a place to park easily on Mother's Day. We did not have to wait for our table. The food was excellent, wait staff was very good. We will be coming back again!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This was our first dining experience at Tria and we would definitely go back for another occasion. It is moderate to expensive, so it is not something we would do often, but it was great for the birthday celebration. They offer free bottles of wine for birthdays, and that is fantastic! Plus, they brought out a free dessert. The food was delicious and they have a large menu with a lot of options. The server was friendly and the food came quickly. It was a fabulous first time dinner experience!"

  • "It was a wonderful dinner. The food was amazing. I will be back a lot!!! "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant. Consistently excellent food. Service has always been professional. Food choices are a good variety for most tastes. Bread is excellent. Wait staff always asks prior to starting if you are celebrating something special which is nice."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "At first our server was very attentive and quick to deal with us, after ordering we were neglected for long periods of time. They must have been understaffed because our server was seen busing tables throughout the night. We ordered the wild rice meatloaf and the sirloin with acorn squash risotto. The meatloaf was pretty good but the presentation was awful, it looked like cat food and was garnished with burnt/rubbery onions. The sirloin was mediocre at best, not super flavorful and slightly chewy, the risotto was like paste and tasted like perfume. We ordered desert and it took about 25 minutes for it to arrive and the ice cream was already half melted. Especially for the price, I see no need to return."

  • "4th time of eating here but 2nd time for special occasion. Staff very attentive,knowledgable and polite. We all ordered different entrees and all were amazing. I found that weekend evening are definitely more if an adult vibe but would recommend Tria to anybody. Will be going back soon."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Tria is the only "nicer" restaurant in our area - we have frequented it often, for special occasions and just for a quick "bar" nite out. I feel there are lots of menu choices, but would like to see some changes. For the restaurant menu, it would be great if the entrees were served with vegetables or salad (not a la carte). Also would like to see the entrees prepared in different ways."

  • "We celebrated someone's 73 birthday and he was elated with the comparable wine value to his age"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Free bottle of wine and delicious dessert made for a very nice birthday. The veal Marsala was good but a little bland. Beet salad was fantastic. Our waiter was gracious and attentive."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Its frustrating when you make a reservation several days in advance and you are given the worst table in the house--even when there are other open tables. We asked the host about it and she replied that the other tables had all been reserved. Hummm,,,she said she'd make a note that we didn't want that table again and walked off without trying to make any accommodation. The food isn't that great, menu uninspiring but the server was excellent. I only recommend this spot if you're going to the movie complex next door; otherwise, there are better restaurants in the area."

  • "We have dined at Tria a number of times now and have always had a positive experience. The food is inventive, the staff attentive, and the ambience is lovely."

  • "Have been to Tria several times - and twice before for Easter Brunch. Although they were busy, it wasn't at full capacity at the time we were there, so I was frustrated when my food arrived and my eggs were cold and dried out, my leek hash browns, which I love, were cold, also. I was disappointed. I did not alert the server since everyone else seemed fine and I didn't want to hold anyone else up, and frankly, it shouldn't have happened."
