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!

    Our server was very good and added top the experience. Since we eat here fairly often, I guess you would say it is one of our favorites. The is top notch and the ambiance is very pleasant. The menu always has unique items as well as tried and true favorites. GO!

    Dined on 11/20/2014
    Our dinners were delicious & the wine met our tastes to a tee. My stem daiquiri perfect. Would recommend Tria to others & plan to return. However, the menu was too extensive. Wondering if all selections could be prepared exquisitely. Suggest tailoring it to fewer items that can be prepared with distinction, rotating the menu. Our waiter was cordial & attentive. However, he seemed to be in a hurry to get out. He did not offer us a dessert or offer coffee. We usually decline the dessert but love looking at the offerings. Given that we all were driving & had some libations, offering coffee would have been appropriate .

    We loved our experience at Tria! I am very picky when it comes to food and was thoroughly impressed with everything we ordered, from appetizers to salads to the steak. The steak was especially delicious (filet mignon). The menu had so many creative choices on it. They also have a large gluten free menu (they actually call it the Celiac menu, so they may use a separate cooking space). I can't wait to go back!

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    The bar is the best part of Tria and gets heavy traffic. It is too small to handle demand. The bar should be expanded. The ambiance is very nice and comfortable. The dining room suffers from boom and bust scheduling leading to either bored or overwhelmed staff. Parking is inadequate for busy nights. Menu has good variety but no standouts. Not enough vegetable choices.

    We had a great dinner. It was a birthday celebration and they made the birthday person feel very special with complementary wine and a delicious dessert with a glowing candle and all...best of all, no restaurant sing along! Our waiter Scott was very friendly and super knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The food was top notch, as was the wine. It was a little spendy, but you certainly get what you pay for here!

    I have to say that the brunch at Tria is so much more than that title indicates. The food offered is extremely vibrant. If you have not tried the lobster scramble...you have to go and try that alone. The huge chunks of lobster ...asparagus and sauce on a extremely large piece of Texas style toast is more than exciting for early Sunday breakfast. I understand next week starts a new menu of added items. Can't wait. The option of a mimosa is always appreciated also.

    All was well at Tria, one of our most favorite places to dine. Only complaint is that the walleye was very oily and not up to expectations for Tria. I would use the word "greasy", and the fish was very soft, almost mushy. The risotto...one of my favorite dishes at Tria, was also not up to par. None of this could diminish what we thought was a perfect night out with friends. Tria remains at the top of our list!

    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!
