A word from Trio Restaurant - Charlotte
Trio provides a blend of traditional and contemporary foods. Salads, sandwiches, pizzas, steak, seafood and pasta all house made and served in a cozy and unique dining environment. You may choose to dine in a lively bar area, in cozy booths with views of the landscaped outdoors, in an open central area with linen-dressed tables and our warm wood-burning pizza oven, in a semi-private room, or "al fresco" on our patio. Our restaurant is a smoke-free establishment.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Neighborhood dinging at its best. Small enough to feel somewhat homey but with a nice, varied menu. Couple I was with have been coming here for years. I would recommend and would return."

  • "We had a party of twelve and the food and service was very good. I would recommend Trios."

  • "I have dined at Trio on and off for 11 years. The FIRST thing I love about Trio is it is NOT a chain resturant. The SECOND thing is that the food is always good, the varitey of the menue is great - there is always something for everybody in the party. THIRD and last is the relaxed atmosphere cor comfortable dining and a great wait staff always make my experience at Trio a positive one."

  • "Everything was great. Our server was a little distracted so only 4 stars there, but the food was fantastic. Be sure and save room for the baked Alaska."

  • "Outdated decor,old and dirty carpet ,and dry tasteless pizza. We havent been here for 14 years ,and nothing has changed.Same old chairs,tables,and lighting,not to mention the dirty carpet floors. Last Chance!"

  • "Accomodated our reservation ...nice outdoor table in the shade ( no fans, but ok on this day). Good service . Tried the turkey burger...interesting flavor and would get again. Would like to see a veggie Burger on the menu too."

  • "Trio has a great outdoor patio! It's very private...can see the road a bit in the background, but not too loud or distracting. It was exactly what we were seeking for our lunch for a colleague."

  • "Hi, I went with two friends to celebrate a birthday and it was great. This is my third time here and the staff is so friendly, the food is so varied and excellent and we love sitting out on the shaded deck. Wyn Flo"

  • "Man, the country-fried buttermilk chicken is what I get EVERY time I go here and this time was no disappointment. Our server (either names Mike or Dave) was one of the best I've had. He handled out table of 6 with 2 kids and my hard-to-please parents wonderfully. It had been a while since we have beento Trio and now we're thinking we need to make sure to return again soon!"

  • "Mother in laws 90th birthday, everyone (12) enjoyed their meal and Matt was excellent as our server and the birthday girl had a great time"

  • "Met a friend at Trio's for a quick lunch. It was her first trip to the restaurant. We were seated immediately and greeted by our server who was knowledgeable of the menu and attentive with her service. My cheeseburger was cooked to perfection, and so was my friend's pizza. Trio's is a handy neighborhood spot for lunch, which is the meal I eat most often there. Try it!"

  • "We went to Trio recently with the in-laws and our two kids. We were seated promptly at a great round table away from the main action, which was great as the in-laws are hard of hearing. The server was great, and did an excellent job of taking care of our little group of 6. Trio offers a variety of food so that there is something for everyone. One of the things I like are their monthly specials - to change up the regular menu. The food is reasonably priced and you receive ample portions to eat."

  • "David was patient and courteous serving a table of four .... Two who were elderly and on walkers. I appreciated the hostess paying attention to my request when I made the reservations on line."

  • "Well, seeing as how I'm at Trio at least twice a week, that pretty much sums up how much I love dining there. Reminds me of a Carly Simon song....."Nobody does it better......." In all the years I've been going to Trio (it's my home away from home), I have never had a meal that was not A-1. My thanks to Gary, Greg and everyone who works at Trio."

  • "One of the best restaurants in south Charlotte. Great value, especially on a Tuesday evening - BYOB, no corkage either. Very pleasant staff. Yes, one of my family's favorites."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "This is a great value, good food that you can count on time after time! The ambience is nice, not too over done, just a really comfortable place to eat or bring an out of town guest."

  • "I made reservations for restaurant week. I had no idea that the reservations were 30 minutes before closing. That shouldn't be possible. Needless to say, they were out of the dish I wanted. And the waitress wasn't friendly, but it was near closing."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Overall, we had a great experience for restaurant week. Our food was good, the portions were generous, and the waiter was friendly and helpful. Entrees took a little longer than normal to get out, but they were busier than I've seen during prior visits. I would definitely recommend Trio to anyone looking for good food at a great value."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "My husband loves Trios and since it was his Birthday we decided to go there. The food was good, although I felt like our waitress really didn't want to be there. We had a party of 10 and some people had never been there before. I think over all everyone liked their meal but the customer service could have been better. Also, I did not know there was a "cake charge" for bringing a Birthday cake. We have brought cakes to high scaled restaurants before with no problem but were made to feel that it wasn't welcomed as it would cause for more silver ware and plates. In the end the waitress didn't charge us and brought us plates after I said we could just eat in on our napkins!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food, but would like to have something on the menu that we could try again. I think it would be a good idea for restaurant week to sample food that you like and then you come back for again, Also it was very cold on Saturday night and our table was right by the door. We had a reservation and didn't wait at all,. I wish we had asked to have a different table as we were freezing every time the door opened. My husband has a cold now and thinks it's from this."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "This was the best meal of the week in terms of the choices and quality of the food"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I've lived in Charlotte for 30 years and frequent the Pineville area as Carolina Place and some of the surrounding stores are a common place for me. I even go to the Burlington Coat Factory, which is in the same parking lot as Trio, but the restaurant never caught my eye. Some might consider it as "hidden in the cut", for if you blink, you would surely miss it. Lucky me for a Resturant Week, an email to a friend with the listings of Resturants and their suggestion of this little quaint, lively place. The ambience was nice, service was great, food delectably delicious and drinks were nice and smooth...I will definitely be returning again soon..."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We went for restaurant week. The food was good. My steak was under cooked but they fixed it and gave me a free glass of wine. Our server was very nice and attentive."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The food was as always quite good. The service was not up to par - too much time between the salad and main course about 15 minutes. The salad came while we were still working on our appetizer."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Comfortable atmosphere very attentive service the almond basket dessert is to die for"
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We greatly enjoyed the food and waitress but our reservation through open table was not honored. They valued reservations made through the restaurant itself over those from open table. We ended up waiting 30 minutes past our reservation"

  • "The food was excellent and the service was great. We had a wonderful company luncheon and were in and out in about an hour."

  • "We had a group of 8. They gave us a round table placed back In a little alcove. It was perfect. There was a very large group next to us but they did not interfere at all with us hearing each other. The service was great. I had the Ancho BBQ salmon with cheese grits and collards. I loved it. My husband had the Cobb salad. It is one of my favorites. Their killer dressing really makes the salad. Another diner had the Cajun shrimp and grits and they were wonderful too."

  • "Really enjoy coming to Trio. Whether it's for lunch, brunch or evening dining, always great service and great foiod. Not sure I was given my Open Table points reservations as hostess did not make note of name when I checked in and said we had reservations. Love this place."

  • "We have enjoyed many wonderful meals at Trio Restaurant having gone there since they opened years ago. It is a great place for a quick lunch as well as our family's favorite celebration restaurant. Soups, salads, seafood, steaks, pizza, desserts -- they are all consistently delicious. You definitely don't want to miss Trio!"
