    My wife and I sat outside on a cool beautiful Sept evening. Perfect weather. The food was perfect. We both had Filet Mignon cooked to our specifications. Good variety on the menu without being overwhelming. I wrote in the Open Table comment section that is was my wife's birthday and the waiter didn't disappoint. He brought us a chocolate piece of cake with a candle and two glasses of champagne!! A perfect end to a perfect evening!

    Thought the food and service were excellent. The only issue I had was the noise level made it difficult to talk to my date. Recommend it for a good night out but not for a first date if you are trying to have a conversation.

    We so enjoyed our dining experience at Trio! The service was at tentative without being overbearing. The drinks and appetizers were delicious (Trio Manhattan, crab dip & beef carpaccio). The main courses were all excellent and we never felt rushed. The ice cream for dessert was so different, rich & delicious...better to share a dish! Would highly recommend Trio for a special meal. A little expensive but well worth it!

    We finally tried Trio Grill, and we were so glad that we did! Usually we go to DC to get a good steak but now Trio will be our go-to. The food was amazing, and the service was perfect. Our server was extremely attentive without hovering. We sat outside which was nice and quiet. The only drawback is that the patio seating looks at the Sunoco gas station which seemed very strange.

    Attentive service without hovering. Food, wine and cocktails excellent. Lamb perfect, not overdone. Veal and short ribs succulent. Scallops a bit heavy for a seafood dish. Seasonal salads delightful and fresh. Loved that the sommilier was willing to come to the table and guide us through the wine list so we could choose an appropriate wine for the variety of dishes. Not a fan of cheesecake, but this was excellent.

    Every aspect of dinner at Trio was good. From the bread, to the raw bar appetizers, through J's steak salad and coffee everything was well prepared, presented, and reasonably priced. This is a very solid restaurant. Noise level is such that you can have a conversation without shouting, and the atmosphere is upscale. Will definitely be back.

    Started with cocktails: old fashioned and drink with Hemingway. Drinks were nice and strong, old fashioned a somewhat meager with huge ice cube. Moved on to a beet salad and the Norwegian smoked salmon. Both were excellent! Lemon sauce accompanying the salmon refreshed the palate. Completed the meal with the peach turnover a la mode was also delicious with crunchy granola - not over sugared but still sweet.

    I cannot find the words to express how wonderful our experience at Trio Grill was. It was birthday and the staff was more than accommodating. They worked with my husband and allowed him to choose our table, and the flowers he ordered to be waiting for me at the table. The food was out of this world and our server, Ashley, is just awesome!! The chef even went out of her way to prepare a dish for my husband that was not even on the menu. Needless to say, we will be going back soon!!!

    Would definitely return! I had the filet (with a side of truffle fries) and my friend had the chicken breast. Both of us had tomato caprese and were just too full for dessert. The steak was delicious as were the potatoes and asparagus that accompanied them. The the price point was a full 10-20$$ less than a traditional steakhouse per entree. We loved it! Great meal. Our waitress was delightful, and the food was delivered hot!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
