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!

    Although the front end of our dining experience was a disaster, it had nothing to do with Tria. We unfortunately had an obnoxiously loud party of 4 near us, making all of our conversation nearly impossible. Our server, Raymond, and the host were aware of the problem and very intent on moving us to a different table away from the offensive group. Once that was accomplished, we were able to enjoy our evening. The food, as always, was delicious, and our server was extraordinarily good. He (Raymond) was able to defuse the tension with a great sense of humor and empathy. Kudos to him for "saving the day". We will be back!!!

    My husband and I celebrated my birthday with a delicious meal of scallops, risotto and duck, but also had a wonderful surprise of a free bottle of wine equal to my age. Great benefit of getting older!! The relaxed atmosphere by the fireplace at Tria made the evening special and memorable. Topping it off with a free birthday dessert was a great way to end the evening.

    The restaurant in itself was very lovely the only thing is some of the food was not hot. I had their signature special Beef Wellington which was very good but the mashed potatoes cold and the side of asparagus pea risotto was served just warm. I did ask the waiter if this was how it was served and he said no and very promptly took it back to the kitchen returning a very hot risotto. I wonder if the chefs check the temperature of the food before serving or maybe it sits too long before it reaches the table.

    The hostess & staff were very accommodating, all of our party was not there at the reservation time but they were in sat the half that were there & as our party grew in size by 2 extras they added them in without complaint. We did wait an exceptionally long time for our dinner to arrive, however we didn't complain, the management also realized this & give us a few extra desserts to share. One complaint I have is that our waitress didn't ask us if we wanted alcohol drink refills. WiFi- it would be nice if it was available somewhere, we couldn't get it in the bar, or the hallway out by the restrooms-on either level or at the table in the restaurant.

    We were looking for a table for eight at a specific time; this was the only restaurant that could accommodate us. However, we were delightfully surprised to find the menu wide ranging and a wine list that would satisfy untrained and sophisticated palates. The service was perfect. I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for an evening of fine food, wine and great service with a smile.

    We enjoy dining at Tria whether indoors or out on the patio. This evening we enjoyed a dinner with friends. Our meals were very good except that one companion ordered his meat medium rare and it was well done. He did send it back expecting to wait a considerable time. The server was exceptionally accommodating - she was not the one who brought the food out. Fortunately it was a relatively quiet evening and the replacement plate with medium rare was back in minutes. The rest of the evening was at Tria's usual high standard.

    I love a dinner at Tria with the English countryside ambiance & the excellent service? That being said, there is always one or two menu items that leave me lacking. This time is it came as a surprise as I've had the crab cakes and the steak before and they were excellent. This time the steak was a bit tough and lacking flavor and the crab cakes were overly creamy and sweet. The culinary hits were both the walley and scallops, along with a lovely lobster Mac & cheese. The risotto was cool & mussels were small, but that's getting picky. I always leave Tria thinking I might return for another special occasion dinner. But wouldn't it be great if they could find a consistency that would make a night at Tria an absolute must?

    We loved everything about this place. It was a quiet Tues. eve., perfect for a romantic birthday celebration. The scallop appetizer was delicious, followed by equally fine salads, beef filet & tournedos, sides, & my surprise birthday dessert. We received a very good bottle of wine for free - I turned 60 so we enjoyed a $60 bottle. Our server was excellent and friendly, courses arriving in perfect time. Now we can't wait to return!

    Good service, Good cocktails, coffee, appetizer, one of the best onion soups ever (least salt ever), BUT awful entrees -- worst walleye fish ever in MN, mushy and stale (here in the land of walleyes, in mid-summer). Worst part was extremely high salt in veggies -- took many hours for the salty taste to dissipate, would have ruined the meal, even without the poor tasting walleye! Wife's lamb chops were served rare, despite asking for medium cook.

    Ordered calamari appetizer and bacon wrapped prawns for entrée. Prawns were 'specialty' according to the menu. Calamari had absolutely no flavor and prawns were served burned (bacon was almost unrecognizable). I requested a new entrée, and about 10 minutes later was told that they couldn't be served any differently. I chose a different entrée of scallops and although cooked as expected, the risotto accompaniment was very salty. Because of the delay, the 3 other people with me had finished their meals by the time I was served my second option. There was no consideration by server or mgmt. to apologize and comp any items...very surprised. I won't return. Food and service was very disappointing. Nice outdoor patio!

    I have been to Tria on multiple occasions and am always amazed that they have such unfriendly host staff. It's a poor introduction to an otherwise nice experience. Good ambiance and a nice space, food is ok; it would be great if they'd switch up the menu a bit more. But, that said, the chicken pot pie is always a winner and the bar drinks are quite well done.

    Celebrated a family birthday here as we have for 5+ years. There is no better restaurant in the Twin Cities as far as I'm concerned. Ray, our server, was excellent as he always is. He heard us mention my in laws were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and brought them a special dessert. In addition, he interacted with my teenage kids as if he was a family member. I highly, highly recommend this restaurant for any event or celebration you might have.
