Diner Reviews
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "We have dined at Trio many times for both lunch and dinner. The quality of the food and service is always consistent, with the food being delicious and comforting, and the wait staff excellent. We tried the new "small plates" menu (4 different people) and all enjoyed their meals. The small plates has smaller portions (and prices) so should be paired with a good salad or soup. Desserts are large enough to share--decadent and delicious."

  • "As usual, Trio had such a nice ambience, with the quietness to hold a conversation. The food was excellently prepared. I ordered 3 sides for my main dish, & was pleased that they put them all on one plate. The haricot vert, the brussels sprouts & the sauteed mushrooms were DELICIOUS! A filling meal that was expertly prepared. My husband ordered his favorite, the nicoise salad & loved it...lots of tuna, hard boiled eggs & olives. The Mediterranean Pizza was also very good."

  • "It is always a great experience when you dine at Trios from service to food. Thanks for making this just as fabulous."

  • "We ate here on a Thursday evening, around 7 p'clock. This is my 5th or 6th time here. The food was excellent as always. My only gripe was that the service wasn't as good as the other times I was here, though the place was packed. I would still come back, as this is one of my favorite Cincinnati-area restaurants."

  • "Waiter (Brad) excellent attentive ,fluent with menue, fun. Halbut outstanding, crab cakes excellent,caprese tomatoes not so good, as was the veal picatta (tough), overall flavors great,ambiance excellent,service tops."

  • "We do not go very often to Trio but each time it seems that it is getting worse. First I had made reservations requesting a table by the window. We did not get one. My friend and I ordered a cobb salad (dinner size) with dressing on the side. The salad was fair but came with so little dressing that is was ridiculous. We had to ask for more and they kept bringing back the same little bit at a time that we stopped asking. Bread is the kind that is only good after it comes out of the oven and then becomes cardboardish. There is no excuse today to serve bad bread. Finally our server was ostensibly rushing us..."

  • "My wife and I spent our 32nd anniversary dinner at Trios on a weekday evening. The ambiance was nice, the service was excellent (many persons overseeing the status), and the meal was very good in my case (Soy-glazed seabass) and good for my wife (halibut). The staff was very attentive and picked up that we were celebrating a very important event. After dinner, the manager brought us each a glass of champagne to help us celebrate - a really nice gesture to top off a very good meal. We completed our dinner by sharing the lemon cream pie, which was a refreshing finale to an excellent evening."

  • "went for the brunch - really nice omelet station with lots of choices. Good fruits and sides to go along with the made to order omelets! The juices next to the assortment of goodies are not included. It's a one-set price and you can go up as many times as you like."

  • "We no longer live in Cinti but our family lives here. We make it a point to dine at Trio while in the city."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The french onion soup was simply superb. The Salmon Specail (July 30) did not live up to its hype. Would not order again - dry, not much flavor, clealry pre-cooked. Will definitely return."

  • "A group of lady friends met at Trio for lunch. At 11:30am we were practically the only ones there, but by the time we left the restaurant was packed. They had a big circular table for us that allowed us all to talk easily. The food was delicious, but on the pricey side. All the workers were very nice."

  • "I love Trio. It is my number one place to go for lunch with special friends and on special occasions. This lunch was to celebrate my friend's birthday -- and he chose Trio. The food was incredible as usual. My smoked salmon flatbread was wonderful; it is one my Trio favorites. My friend loves grouper -- and Trio's grouper sandwich did not disappoint. The dessert was fine. In the many years I have been coming to Trio, I have never had a problem with service until this time. The server did not seem happy to serve us. She made two blatant mistakes, but seemingly blamed us for them. Instead of being a celebratory lunch, we both left disappointed because of the service. I will definitely change tables if I get her as a server again."

  • "I would only eat here for lunch again because their salads/flatbreads sounded good. I was there for dinner though and wouldn't recommend it. I got the grouper entree and it lacked flavor and the veggies were bland. It was $33 and for that I would sooner pay a little more and go to Boca or Ruby's. The others I dined with weren't thrilled either. My mom got the filet and it came with nothing on it- just a plain piece of steak. Again, don't go here for dinner. It's not worth the price for OK food. In fact, I like Bravo better."

    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We had a good but not great dinner - the gnocchi with the vodka sauce was very good, and the meatloaf was also good. The baked Brie appetizer was uninspired and pricey at $13, however. Dessert was also forgettable, and service was friendly but not particularly attentive. Finally the wines by the glass were very expensive. Cincinnati's east side has better options at this price point."

  • "Trio is the first restaurant we visited when we moved to Cincinnati and it continues to be on our favorite list. We have never had a bad experience and our out of town guests are always treated to a meal here. The request is always the same--take us back to Trio when we visit again. My husband enjoys there fish. I like many of the appetizers/side dishes and if someone will share with me, the Prosciutto and Melon pizza--so good."
