Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and ambiance at Trio. The service was good. Server was serious and appeared to be pre-occupied and was cooperative. Would have liked a server who was more present and on his game."

  • "We have been frequenting Trio over the winter and have always had good experiences. Lots of fun and tasty dishes and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is always fun and courteous and as they get to know you, they make an effort to take care of you."

  • "Had been recommended to visit by a friend and we weren't disappointed. Tempted to try the crawfish pie but it seemed out of place in the California desert. Shared a lovely ceviche appetizer, and then enjoyed the sole special, well presented and very tasty, and good-sized portion as well. Although well satisfied, we couldn't resist sampling the key lime tart and it was delightful. Service was excellent, good wine choices at a decent price. No complaints."

  • "The first bottle we ordered had a great deal of sediment in it. When we brought to the owner attention he explained that they have some unfiltered wines but would bring us a different wine to replace it. Very accommodating"

  • "We actually have visited three times- once on our last vacay and two times this past vacation! The food is exceptional. Really loved all of the food but the standouts were the steak and the ceviche. They have an amazing orange drop which a take on the classic lemon drop. We can't wait to go back! Make a reservation and GO GO GO!! It's really worth it."

  • "I have been traveling to Palm Springs for vacation many years, and this was my third year back at Trio. It is really great! The menu has a wide range of food, great for a big group. The food tastes amazing, and the service is great- very friendly. The vibe in the restaurant is also wonderful, sleek interior design, always people in eating- but noise is never an issue. I highly recommend Trio!"

  • "We called ahead because we had a couple of people in our party who were quite hearing challenged. The ,anger promised he could accommodate us with a table in the corner which would be quiet for our party. It was ready and waiting for us when we arrived and we had a lovely conversational evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dinners. Excellent salmon, lamb shank and shrimp. A wonderful find. We will go back when return to Palm Springs next year."

  • "Popular place, but it's getting to a point it's do crowded with people dining it's claustrophobic, thus uncomfortable."
    Dined on 3/29/2014

    Dined on 3/30/2014

  • "Group of 5 girls for fun weekend in Palm Springs, Trio was highly recommended but food was not good. Greasy, heavy, didn't seem fresh just not someplace I'd go back to... Our server was very nice and the vibe is cool. Just NOT good food and no place I'd go back to..."

  • "Took visiting relatives. Great selection of food choices to choose from. Busy Sunday Brunch, but service was not rushed to "flip the table ". Enjoyed it very much."

  • "A total positive experience--from the greeting at the hostess stand to the exit from the place. Great menu and delicious food. The food was well seasoned and delicious. Special kudos to the all the wait staff. There was even convenient parking. The owners have a commitment to improving the neighborhood and the city. This place is a 10!!!"

  • "Whenever we go to Palm Springs, Trio is at the top of our list! The food, service ambience is excellent."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Trio appears to have changed a bit since our last visit approx a year ago. The experience felt a bit rushed... as if they intent was to turn the table as quickly as possible. The service was extremely friendly and the dinner was quite enjoyable... it just seemed as though we were being rushed through the process. We'll come back again, because it could have just been a one off experience. For this reason, 3-stars overall as opposed to our usual 4-star experience at Trio."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The food was just fine and the service attentive. We asked to sit outside to avoid the noise level inside, only to have a large table of very loud people perched right above us. The waiter was very accommodating and did move us to another table as soon as one was available. I do like this restaurant and its lively vibe, but every time we've been there it's been so noisy that it's difficult to have a conversation."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We have been coming to TRIO for years now and love it! You can not only count on great food and service, but an evening of fun and sense of friendship as soon as you walk in the door. Justin at the desk is amazing and welcomes you like an old friend. You will be pampered by several of the staff while dining. If owners Tony & Mark are there, they will stop by your table to say hello and always with a big smile. This is not just a neighborhood restaurant, it's a special place where you are made to feel special and welcomed. We meet friends here quite often for social gatherings plus I send many of my out of town vacation home clients and always get the best feedback from them about their experiences. Try TRIO, you won't be disappointed!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Dining in Palm Springs is always a pleasure, and Trio is one of my favorites. Superb food, attentive service, and lively ambiance characterize it. Its reputation as a popular dining spot is well-deserved."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Trio was recommended by a friend and - wow - was it good! The menu has something for everyone, and "comfort food" comes to mind but the term doesn't do justice to the excellent quality of food that we enjoyed. The atmosphere was vibrant and service was attentive. No complaints here and we'll definitely eat at Trio again next time in Palm Springs."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I always feel safe taking guests to Trio as no one has not enjoyed eating here. Thanks for being a great place to eat. I will be back with the next round of house guests."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Always good; never disappointed. If eating out in PS; definitely want to try - reservations recommended."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Trio is a sure thing. The food is always varied, affordable and interesting. Sometimes amazing, but always perfectly good. The decor is fun and cool and the crowd is the best - all ages and all kinds of people are warmly welcomed. Servers are always great, too. Trio has an orange theme to the decor and when dining there last Sunday night, I noticed many of the diners were dressed in orange. Maybe they love Trio so much, they dress to match the restaurant. If you're heading to Palm Springs, don't miss it!"

  • "We had tickets for the 7pm show at the Follies. Trio got us served in time without feeling rushed. The prix fixe menu had a lot of variety, generous portions and delicious food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "With Palm Springs being somewhat of a "mature" community it was refreshing to visit Trio and experience the buzz of an eclectic clientele and a hustling, young waitstaff. The hostess who seated us willingly accommodated our request to not be placed by the glass next to the street. The four of us who were here for dinner thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The only negative comment was that the calamari appetizer, though tasty, could be improved with a batter that better adhered to the squid. It must not have been too bad because we finished the plate! The atmosphere here is contemporary, well lighted, and a bit funky. The servers were professional yet friendly yet our waiter seemed to disappear at times."

  • "My son, his girlfriend and I could not say enough good things about this restaurant. We had great food at a very reasonable cost, a terrific server, and a lovely environment. Definitely on our list of restaurants to return to."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We are just ending a month in Palm Springs and in our exploring of this town, we found a couple of restaurants we loved enough to return to several times- one of them was Trio which never ceased to more than meet our high expectations. Always great service, great vibe inside (they have outside service but it is quieter for those who prefer that). Food is terrific and lots to choose from. Attentive service, not overly solicitous and more on the fun side. We will be back next year for sure!"

  • "We went here for a friends bachelorette party and had an absolute blast. We were staying in palm desert but this place and atmosphere was definitely worth the little drive. The food was incredible! We had a vegetarian and someone who was gluten free but the menu definitely catered to their needs."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Trio Restaurant is highly successful, because it is run very well, a moderately priced menu, and takes advantage of a vibrant location. One should not go there expecting great food, because it isn't. One should not expect a "laid back" experience, because it is anything but. It offers satisfactory-microwave-quality-preparation in a very rushed scene. All that said, I appreciate good business in my neighborhood, and I wish Trio continued success, but it is likely they will do it without a great deal of support from my little world of friends."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We had dinner and a lunch with small groups of friends twice within two weeks and it was great food, great service, and easy to interact with our friends in a very pleasant environment. We would definitely recommended this place to others. The fixed price menu choices are also a great option."
