  • "we stopped in for brunch on a sat. not too busy. we had a great server who was very friendly, helped us pick out or lunches and brought us some great drinks, was very attentive in making sure our drinks never got too low and making sure all of his recommendations were to our liking. I would def. come here again for the service and food. The crowd was a little sparce during the day and probably too quiet for my taste."

  • "This was a great place and you get enough food for two and it is great food!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We've tried Trio a few times and always left thinking it was just too crowded and too loud and too busy for us. But - we figured we would try it "off season." The place wasn't packed (as usual), our seats were comfortably away from other diners (other times, we were elbow-to-elbow). The food is very good (not excellent) and the prices are reasonable. It was a very pleasant and relaxing and enjoyable evening. We will return!"

  • "Trio is a reliably excellent restaurant for dinner and drinks. Comfortable and lively bar scene well served by a wonderful bar staff. The menu is inventive without being too exotic to reserve it for only special occasions. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. Likewise the servers are attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend it for a night out in Palm Springs."

  • "Eat here often, but service was definitely off this past dining experience."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This is the second time we dined at Trio. Took out of town visitors and they were very impressed. Such a fun experience. Wait staff was very attentive and informed, but not too much. Courses were timed and presented impressively. Food was quite outstanding. Cost was more than reasonable. Not one complaint, concern or negative comment. Simply outstanding experience for the second time. Love this place."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I've been here before and enjoyed it. However my last visit was a real disappointment. The food was really bad...over cooked, presented poorly, sometimes just bizarre. It was about the level of Denny's. The service also was bad. The back waiter who brought the food threw down the dishes without checking to see if we had flatware, which a few of us didn't. We won't be back for awhile."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I recently ate at Trio as I always do when visiting Palm Springs as it is a favourite. This time was disappointing. I selected tuna as my entre. I should have read the menu more carefully. I have had tuna before and it was always great, however it has changed. The tuna was served with mashed garlic potatoes and a soy vegetable medley. In summary, the combination doesn't work - hence the title of this review 'food confusion'. The food combination for the entre is too heavy and the vegetable medley is too strongly flavoured. So, a disappointing choice by me. On the positive side, the service was excellent. I will return to Trio but will more discerning in menu selection."

  • "This was my husband's and my second trip to Palm Springs and we could not be in town and not eat at this great restaurant. The food is very good and the service is spot on. We brought friends with us this time and they loved it as much as we did. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and we'll be visiting again on our next trip to Palm Springs."

  • "We were in town celebrating a birthday and made a reservation at Trio, I did let them know we had a b-day in the group so it was great when we taken to our table and it had B-day confetti all over it (nice touch). The service at Trio is GREAT !!! The Food "YUMMY" and it is just a fun place to have dinner. The Mac and Cheese was one of the best I have every had. Everyone in our group loved there food and the have a great wine list and drink list.....Plus the b-day Cupcake they bought out was AWESOME !!! Next time we are in Palm Springs we will be back!"

  • "We were a party of 8 people who had not been together in a very long time so had lots of talking going on. The waiter was very accommodating with special requests including sending over to their sister restaurant for a certain bottle of wine."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Will always be a favorite place whenever I'm in town! Not a bad thing to say about Trio's but I will make a confession. Yes I've thought about going other places to eat when in PS but I always come back to Trio's for the simple fact they are consistent. Great food, great service, great vibe, and a all around good time."

  • "The food was good, however for the first time I had their skirt steak and found it to be tuff (I ordered rare), otherwise the food was WONDERFUL would wholeheartedly suggest the lamb, it is the BEST THING EVER!! and do NOT skip the desert....TO DIE FOR ....This is a MUST GO!!"

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We went for a late dinner, and it was pretty empty by the time we arrived, we were dissapointed as we had hoped things would still be happening. We sat on the patio, and enjoyed a good meal. The food options are selective but prepared well. I would say average- but we only ate pastas! Our server was awesome however, he really made our experience outstanding!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Truly one of the best in Palm Springs. The guys that own it are great, the wait staff is great, the bar is fun. My preference is for lunch. Truly a place to see and be seen as well. My favorites include the Turkey sandwich served with cranberry sauce. I especially like to order it with the french fried yams….yummy! The bacon, lettuce avocado is great as well. I do miss the cioppino that used to be on the menu for dinner and hope they bring it back. Even the "orange" everywhere is so fun! Don't miss Trio, one of our favorites. By the way, if you are here permanently, make sure to join the frequent diners club there."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Went with a friend for dinner and ran into a couple we knew so they joined us on the patio. With the misters on the temperature was perfect. Dominic was our server and he was great and attentive. The Spa-Tini is my new favorite drink. We went for Restaurant Week but we'd all been before and the food is excellent. Go try it out!"

  • "Service was OK, food mediocre. Noise level high. Pretty much a tourist restaurant."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Usually the food is good, but during this Restaurant Week night, it missed the mark. The wedge salad and desserts were very good. The service was excellent. However, the entrees (steak and pasta dishes) were just ok. Nonetheless, this is a nice Palm Springs restaurant with a lively bar scene and I would recommend it to visitors."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We visit from out of town once or twice a year, and came to Trio last year for the first time. This year brought friends for the first time, and had a lovely meal. Everything was very well prepared, nice variety to the menu, and the service was very friendly and prompt. We arrived at 6:00pm, and by the time we left the place was packed! We will return..."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Could not believe the food for the price. Great reputation and glad they participated in the Palm Springs restaurant week. We will go back even when prices are higher. Food was excellent. Staff was a bit disorganized but eventually got their act together. Really enjoyed the experience and will take guests there during the "season". "

  • "I live in Los Angeles & escape to Palm Springs regularly. Every visit I have several meals at Trio. This visit I spent my Birthday having dinner at the bar with the wonderful bartenders Sarah & Paul. I had the beet salad & pork chop AMAZING! It's restaurant week but they still took the time to make me feel special. Sarah & Paul thank you!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "It was my husband's birthday and Trio did everything to make it special. "Happy Birthday" confetti on table when we arrived. Great food served without feeling rushed. Birthday cupcake and a song! Perfect celebration. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "To be fair, may wife and I visited Trio during Palm Springs' Restaurant Week. It was packed, to say the least. So they had their fixed price menu going and the selection was decent. My wife had the roast chicken and I had the rib eye steak. Both were very good and we assume they would have been even better on a non-event night. As it was, we enjoyed every bite. The service, despite the full house, was just excellent. From the initial greeting to the finish, we were treated as if we were the VIPs of the room. It was raucous that night and pretty noisy, but we will revisit (soon) on a non-event night where we predict the the noise level will be diminished and the food choices will be wider. The service couldn't be better."
