Diner Reviews
  • "They do a fantastic job with Fish. We don't even look at menu just wait to hear seafod special and have never been dissapointed. The Friday night 1/2 price wine deal is a real deal."

  • "Was one of my go-to places in Cincinnati. Had dinner on Thursday and food quality seems to have changed. Maybe just an off night?"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Trio isalways n standby when it come to the "where do you want to go tonight?" list. They have simple menu mixed with mid level steak, fish, chicken.....but they also have good old comfort food on the menu. Service is always outstanding and their beer and wine list always proves to be excellent. Dont pass up trying this one out....."

  • "I met a friend here for dinner and half price wine. Trio is consistent and over the many years I've been dining here, I've never had a bad experience. My friend is a regular too and she stuck with the Sea bass. I tried a halibut special which was delicious. They have a well curated wine list and with half off a bottle on Mon and Fri you can hardly miss!"

  • "Trio always serves up understated elegance. Servers stay on top of making sure your visit is above expectations. Food is top notch. My Reuben was hot and tasty, the corned beef with just a bit of crisp from the grill - yum! My companion had grilled chicken with some special requests that were handled well by our server. Trio is great for lunch or dinner - or happy hour!"

  • "food and drinks were great, portions were good. Somewhat noisy, little soundproofing noted, voices carried from next table."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Good meal, good service, good atmosphere. Trio never fails to deliver. It's good food, prepared well and a nice portion size. The servers are always pleasant and accomodating and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing or at least it tends to be for early dinner. I had the chopped salad and margherita flat bread and it was as expected, nicely prepared without a lot of frills and "trendy" extras."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Every time we go out with friends, I angle to make Trio our destination. I am vegan, so I very much appreciate the multitude of fantastic vegetables on the menu. The servers and chefs are also very helpful and willing to work with me to customize regular menu items. My favorite -- the Moroccan flatbread (minus cheese) with one or two vegetable sides. I'm from NKY, but Trio is worth the drive to Kenwood and never disappoints."

Food service was prompt and our waitress was knowledgeable about the special menu items and wine service. Her timing for bringing out the items on our order was accurate and our dining experience was excellent."

    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Keep giving this place another chance but continue to be underwhelmed. Thank goodness for half price wine night otherwise this would have been a major disappointment. Veal piccata special was lunch size swimming in capers on a mountain of pasta. Sodium galore. Halibut special again a tiny portion flooded with sauce. 4 of us crammed in a booth meant for two. 4 entree plates left no room for anything else."

I have been to Trio on several occasions, and have always enjoyed the food & atmosphere. My dish was outstanding on Saturday (Lemon Chicken), appetizer was very good as well. Enjoyed their selection of wines. Overall - a great experience, looking forward to going again soon."

  • "My husband and I met my mom at 6:00. (that's really early for us!) We happen to have a groupon and it was 1/2 price bottle of wine night. We really just wanted some light dinner and to catch up. We were seated in the Sun room, which was perfect for talking (not as loud), food was good - we just had the flatbread, and wine. But what made it was our server - Kathy, she was a gem. Professional, personable, not overly intrusive, helpful, fun. By the time we left it was packed and getting really loud. Trios is still a popular destination obviously. I've never had a bad meal or experience there - it's always packed, the crowd seemed to be a lot of seniors (but maybe that's because we were there early :-) ) We'll go back of course, ask for Kathy!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Delicious food, excellent service by Amy. The three of us who met for lunch all love Trio."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We went for our anniversary. We brought our 2 year old and 4 month old and even though I would call this a fine dining restaurant, no one batted an eye. They even had a kid's menu. Monday's and Friday's (we went Monday) bottles of wine are half off, so we got one. We ordered the least expensive bottle (which is $24/$12 half off) and it was amazing! My pizza was incredible and my husband said his steak was great too. The best thing though was the creme brulee! Delicious!! Our server was also very knowledgeable about the wine list and was friendly and on top of things. Great restaurant. If you're ever in the Cincinnati area, I highly recommend. (I will say, pricey though)."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Food was great...but waitress was clueless! A special was listed that had guacamole. My friend asked for some with her salad. The waitress said, "oh, the chef should put that on the menu" When salads came, dressing was on them. We asked for dressing on side. when salads were fixed, we got NO dressing, and had to ask for it. Waitress then asks if we have everything we need. My friend asked for her Guacamole again, and waitress blows that off again. we talked to the manager afterwards. He didn't know why she didn't ask the chef if there was enough to let someone have a side of it. Very strange. Her tip mirrored her service! Usually, Trio's is wonderful. When we got our correct order, it was. This waitress ruined the lunch."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Was not overly impressed with the food and it was a bit overpriced. If prices were lower, may have given more stars. Expected a little more for the prices."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "My husband and I went here with a Groupon and ordered a few appetizers and a pizza. The appetizers were amazing.... I loved the shrimp bruschetta and the lobster bisque specifically. The pizza was good but just okay. The servings overall were plentiful and the restaurant was somewhat formal, but also a bit dated. Overall, we were glad we went."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Very good food and great service. We chose this restaurant because my wife and I were in that area for another function, and decided to give it a try. This was our first time there (we do not live close to this establishment) and would definitely go again when in the area. No problems whatsoever, and would definitely recommend it."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Whenever we want to go somewhere in Cincinnati and know that we will have a great meal, we go to TRIO. The seafood is the best in the city. They also have a great wine selection which includes all of the Orin Swift selections. I don't know if any other restaurant in town offers all of them."

  • "Pretty sure my waitress's name was Wendy and she was wonderful. My sister and I wanted a bottle of wine and when I asked her for recommendations, she recommended her favorites and brought out samples of some as well. I was very impressed. The food was also perfectly cooked and presented well."

  • "A good neighborhood dining experience that is dependable. Family friendly."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I arrived at the restaurant and waited for my date to arrive. We were seated at a very nice table and met by a courteous waiter who asked us for our drink order. I had a lot to talk about to my date and the waiter was wonderful holding back taking our order until ready to eat. At most restaurants the waiter or waitress seems in a hurry to turn over the tables and will badger you into exasperation. The food was brought to us in good order, hot and with fine presentation. It tasted terrific. Overall a very enjoyable experience"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Trios is always good and the food portions great. The menu always seems to be tweaked here and there so you can keep going back and have something new. Thankfully, some of my favorites stay on the menu. A very relaxing atmosphere and the servers are always on top of their game."

  • "Trios has a delicious menu, good drink, great service!! Always consistent. I live nearby and like the wine specials so I am a frequent diner. The owner and management staff are personable and attentive. Lots of choices for any diet, flatbreads, salads, soups on the lighter side and some amazing fish and meat dishes. There is an inventive list of martini's along with standard cocktails. Wine list is well constructed and they allow you to sample anything you are curios about Great place!"

  • "We've dined at Trio before, and it has always been good, but this was really special. The Scottish salmon entrée was perfect, and when they were out of sea bass, they suggested substituting their fish of the day, and it was wonderful. The chef's 4-cheese mac & cheese was great,, and the wine was top notch. And the Brussels sprouts are incredible. If you haven't been there lately, you should go."
