Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service are superlative. The wine list is very good and I'm still thinking about my delicious "Moscow Mule". We looking forward to returning."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal at Trio Grill. The outdoor seating area was pleasant. The wine list was extensive, as were the draft/bottled beers and other drinks. Our waitress was knowledgeable and personable. However, the pace of our meal was very slow."

  • "My husband and I had one of the best meals of our lives (try the scallops and steak dishes) for our one year wedding anniversary. The food, service, and atmosphere were just right."

  • "Dined at Trio finally. Had cheese tray to start. Large portions with lovely truffle oil honey. Split beat salad which was a great mix of flavors. Table bread is great as is the honey mustard butter. Wine list has something for all. Higher-end, rated wines very well priced. Fillet was perfect. Service excellent. Will be back for more."

  • "My wife and I have eaten at Trios several times and we are NEVER disappointed. The food is incredible - especially their hand made pasta. The service - from the front door greeter to the waiters are all professional and add to the experience. Trios is on our list of best places to dinne!"

  • "I'm not sure if it is more crowded during the week, but when we went on Sunday it was very quiet. The majority of people were eating on the outdoor patio. The food was good especially the little donuts rolled in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with icing. The mealbportions were generous and flavorful. The staff was attentive without being overbearing."

  • "We had a nice dinner at TRIO Grill on Sat. evening. The food was good but the steaks were over priced for the cut of meat by about $10.00 each. For the price they are asking a side should be included. The restaurant was very nice and the staff was nice. For a large dining room the noise was not bad."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The service was excellent along with the food. I would characterize this more as a steak house. Nice pianist on weekends adds to the environment. The bar master has created several speciality cocktails. My wife and I had a very enjoyable late night meal."

  • "Following the successful launch of the Circa restaurants in DC and VA, the MGH group has brought, in Trio, a great restaurant venue to Merrifield, VA., characterized by fine dining, highlighted by a select and interesting menu, coupled to a fine wine offering, served by an attentive and professional staff. The prices are moderate and appropriate for the dining experience. the ambiance is wonderful for romantic time together, not stuffy, but also fits groups and meetings for lunch or dinner very well. Next door is the more casual Open Road restaurant with live music, a great bar, and fun food."

  • "The food, wine selection, and service were excellent. The ambience is very upscale with live musc in the evenings. I have been there several times for dinner and now for Sunday brunch. I recommend Trio to anyone. The drive from Arlington to Vienna is worth it! Parking is not a problem."

  • "We love coming to this restaurant! The atmosphere is awesome...the food and drinks are amazing and the staff are friendly and make for a great experience!"

  • "This was a great place to dine. When you walk in there is live music on the piano. The food was delicious from the smoked bread, crab dip and steaks. Also try their signature old fashion that comes out of a cool little barrel on the bar counter."

  • "I am so happy to finally try this place. The hostesses were very friendly and comfortable seating. It looked very nice. The antipasti plate was so very good. The filet with the chianti jus was phenomenal. Even the bread and butter was delicious. I had the key lime pie and it was yummy. My husband had the bone in prime rib with the truffle fries. He ended with the peach upside down cake and loved it. They even have a menu for the kids, my daughter enjoyed the pizza with a bowl of ice cream to finish. I was very pleased with the experience. Parking can be a little snug but I understand they have valet."

  • "We enjoyed our dining experience at Trio and we very much appreciated your fine gesture acknowledging my friend's birthday with a champagne toast on the house. The scallops were amazing as well as all the other dishes; everyone enjoyed their meal. Thanks for making the evening a memorable one."

  • "This is a relatively new place to dine and we decided to try it. The restaurant is lovely and tables well spaced - service wonderful and food was great! I liked the menu choices very much - I enjoyed the fried calamari with artichoke hearts - great steak and delicious chocolate locally made ice cream! They also have a great choice of champagne by the glass which is important to me. I highly recommend this new restaurant to all - the menu choices are varied and there is something delicious to enjoy for everyone!!"

  • "My wife and I have been to Trios four or five times now. The food has always been top of the line and the service outstanding. The only drawback is the noise level which can at times be overpowering. A better buffer between the bar and the dining areas would make dining there even more pleasant."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "After an earlier outstanding dining experience on the outdoor patio of Trio at Merrifield, it was especially disappointing to take a close friend there and to have poor service and average to poor food. Bread was tough and cold. Waiter was non-responsive. Won't return."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Nice place, not in a normal setting but the area is really building up to be a great place to hang out. Excellent decor, great food, excellent service. A bit pricey for where the restaurant is, but if they last a couple of years, it will probably be a vibrant neighborhood. BTW- Tried the "Steve McQueen" drink ..... and will do it again."

  • "Met another couple for dinner on Saturday night. They were a little late for our 7:00pm reservation, so my soft-spoken wife and I were seated first, about midway back in the main dining room. As long as the pianist was playing, I had trouble hearing her, even though she was sitting right next to me, which continued after our friends (and others) arrived, even though the piano player wasn't intentionally playing too loudly. I enjoy live music, but I'd rather hear my table companions clearly without raising our voices all evening. Otherwise the place was fine."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Excellent ambiance and well-prepared, tasty food. Unfortunately, as my neighbors told me - you are too expensive! In my opinion, most prices are 15% to 25% too high for the location and marketplace. I was hoping for a "fair-priced" option to The Capital Grill, but was disappointed. There is a profitable place for great steaks between $24 to $36. When I find it, I will have no problem with 2 to 3 visits per month. At your current prices, I may dine 2 to 3 times per year. Normally I like piano music accompanying dinner - nice touch. But too often the piano was far too loud making it difficult to converse with my guests and hear the waiter."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We made reservations for my wife's birthday. Having never dined here, we did not know what to expect. We arrived on time and were immediately escorted to our table and expected our waiter to immediately swoop to our assistance. Instead, we waited a little longer than we are accustomed, which raised my blood pressure a bit. The delay made perfect sense, after our waiter (RG?) made his way to our table to surprise us with our favorite drinks and an appetizer that had been generously ordered by neighbors. We then warned RG that we would be around for a while and he understood. Throughout the evening, he was perfectly attentive without being intrusive...bringing us delicious oysters, filet topped with crab imperial and desert."

  • "Entre was so so and over priced . Great ambience and decor."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Expensive. But really good service which really added to our experience. The food was very good also and worth the price. The ambiance was a little off and didn't match the quality of service or food. The furnishings were good but the music being played was out of character and the large tv screens visible from every table gave it a different feel. It didn't feel as upscale as the service and food experience. We would return and recommend to others because of our experience but with hesitation because of this incongruity."

  • "We went there for a 40th Wedding Anniversary on a Sunday night. Overall, the experience was great with really good food and outstanding service. It is a bit on the pricey side, but not any different than other DC area restaurants of the same caliber. The noise level was low, however, we were the only inside table (there were a couple groups outside). Although I did not get to enjoy the Cigar Lounge or outdoor seating area, they both looked nice and something that I would come back to try. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. If you have the chance, get Ryan as your server, he was absolutely amazing."

  • "After passing this new restaurant every day for months on my commute, we finally made it in on Saturday night. We dine out often and were very pleased to find a great new spot - that was easy to book on Open Table (a must)! TRIO Grill is not inexpensive, but it is elegant, comfortable and casually "un-stuffy." The staff is attentive, eager to please (we felt appreciated) and the menu offers something for everyone. We found the food both delicious and generous (enough for a nice Sunday leftover lunch for us both). We are eager to return with friends!"

  • "Had a party of 7 with 2 well behaved children. Our waiter, Ryan, was excellent - he seemed to be everywhere at once and got it right. Food, service and ambience all made for a wonderful celebration. WE'LL BE BACK."

  • "What a fabulous find!! I have visited this restaurant twice and have yet to be disappointed. The food is consistently delicious and the service is great. Fine dining in a relaxed, yet chic environment. Beautiful live piano music, easily visible television screens for the sports enthusiast, a fine wine/cocktail list, delightful desserts, a pleasant staff, and again, DELICIOUS food! I'm sure Trio's Grill will be a favorite of mine for years to come."

  • "A fantastic evening. My wife and I reestablished date night not that our kids are older. We picked a Tuesday and chose Trio Grill based on Open Table comments. It was a great choice. The Aaron, the Manager, and Serg, our Server, made it a very special night. Before dinner we got the Anti-pasta - Amazing. It would make a great dinner all by itself. I had Lamb and my wife had Fish, the Aaron chose a perfect wine from a very robust cellar to perfectly compliment both dishes. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The Risotto that comes with Scallops looked really good so I had that with my Lamb for a small up-charge. The most incredible Risotto I've ever had. Highly recommended. We will go back."

  • "We started at the bar where the cocktails and bartender were fantastic! The food we ordered for dinner was also great, however, with a menu that is a single page long it is disappointing that they ran out of the appetizer we initially wanted (beef carpaccio). We were also informed of the specials, and when we went to order the fish entree special we were also told that they were out of this. At 8:00 on a Saturday, this seemed bizarre. We will certainly go back because what we did have was delicious, let's just hope they get there ordering more accurate between now and then so we can enjoy what is advertised."

  • "This was a superlative experience! The gold margarita was one of the best I've had. The antipasti was interesting and very good. My diver scallops ($32) were the best I've ever had -- and that's saying a lot since I frequently order scallops. My husband's pork chop ($28) was delicious. It was Saturday night and fairly noisy. The piano music was a little loud but still very nice. (Our table was nearby.) There is seating outdoors, but you can't hear the music. The general manager helped us choose wine by the glass and then stopped by to see how we liked it. My husband's red wine was outstanding. All in all, a little expensive but well worth it. We'll be back!"

  • "Had 7:45PM appointment, and was seated promptly despite being quite busy on this Sat'd night. Waiter good, attentive, but this waned towards end of evening. Took nearly 15mins just to get our check. Flounder special was expensive and the fish was dry... I asked them not to put in the crab stuffing, and this may have been conducive to this outcome. Salmon (on a salad) was excellent, as was a mushroom flat bread prior as appetizer. Was dining with my >90 yr old mother, and it was a tad noisy..... it was nice experience, as the ambience is appealing... and the food was fresh. Salad was excellent. Did not have desert... Bread was ok, but perhaps better with olive oil. Lovely evening, but not sure it was worth price."

  • "My wife summed this place up halfway through the meal -- Trio doesn't know what it wants to be quite yet. An extremely loud piano player greets you as you enter, playing semi-current pop hits on acoustic piano (kind of weird), and then when he takes a break, they 80s pop over the sound system quite loud. In a white table cloth place that is serving fairly high-end food, it really wasn't the mood we expected. The bar noise and TVs intrude (at least where they seated us) in the middle of the room. Trio should think about some kind of divider between the bar and dining area. Food was OK. I was impressed with the wine list, with very reasonable options in addition to the pricey wines. I may go again, but tick to the bar."

  • "Our service was excellent. Perhaps because we had to dine early in order to catch a movie, our waiter gave us a lot of attention. He also knew the menu well as was able to provide great advice in choosing our entrees. The food was so good that we were tempted to linger and skip the movie. We will return."

  • "You might not notice Trio on your way by on Rt 29 but you should make a point to seek it out! Good food, great service, a reasonable and varied wine list and lovely atmosphere make it worth your while. This was our second time at Trio. We had one app to share among 3 of us, since it was my moms birthday she chose the fried calamari which is served with a yummy, spicy, chipotle sauce. I had the Diver scallops with marscapone risotto, heavenly! My husband had shrimp and spicy sausage with pasta and my mom had the Branzino with lump crabmeat. All were perfectly cooked, great presentation and delicious. Ironically we had the same server as our last visit, Michael, who is professional, knowledgeable about food and wine and a delightful person!"

  • "Early evening reservation so the place had few guests. Hostess as very attentive. So was the waiter--at first. Later, he had too many tables that he was giving his generous attention to so there were times when we could not get his attention and had to wait. Note: he was not available for us because he was working other tables, not because he disappeared into the back or took a smoke break. Waiter was knowledgable when asked questions regarding food and drinks' contents and preparation. The drinks were good sized, cocktail was well made. The food was nicely prepared and seemed well thought out and well prepared. Overall, it was a nice experience (and I'm picky)."

  • "We went for a special occasion and they gave us the private room, which was beautiful. The wait staff was excellent, the menu and ambiance were great, though it got loud as the place filled up. Being in the private room kept some of the noise out. The only things that were not great was the price: $468 for 7 people + tip. so, special occasions only. And I wish the menu would be a little more specific regarding ingredients. I ordered the Branzino, which was highly recommended, and it said it contained a celery purée. I asked if there was cream in that, and the waiter said just a little. It was full of cream, and so being lactose intolerant, it was not good for me. But the gazpacho was fabulous. Overall, great new restaurant."

  • "We love Trio Grill and go often. Brunch on the terrace was amazing on Mother's Day. Dinner is always something wonderful. Our favorite spot is nestled at a high top table in the bar with tapas-sized food/flatbreads and cocktails/wine. The interior is sleek and sexy with a gorgeous grand piano as the focal point. All of the staff is professional and knowledgeable. The food is excellent although beef selections are pricey. Trio is the crown jewel of the trilogy at the former Upscale Resale site. Road House is great too but not the same upscale experience as Trio. The wine shop wedged in between is expensive, but you can take home your favorite wines from Trio's impressive wine list. Parking is challenging but valet is available."
