    Our bachelorette plan was to go to dinner in Newport, but I encouraged the group to drive the extra few minutes to Trio as it's one of my favorite restaurants. Everyone loved it! As usual, great food, great atmosphere!

    This is our second trip to Trio and it certainly didn't disappoint. My husband is disabled and the staff was more than eager to accommodate our wheelchair and special needs. We ordered the calamari appetizer, remembering it from last year. We were disappointed that they had discontinued the chili glaze, but it was still delicious. Especially notable is that when my Flat Iron Steak was served without a steak knife, I whispered to my husband "I hope this is tender." It was, but half way through using my butter knife to cut my steak, the manager breezed through with a knife and a smile. We only go out on one date each year and we look forward to next year's visit! Perhaps we'll get that same table a third time, it's like they remember us!

    This was my third visit to Trio and the very best. The food was extra delicious, (the freshest seafood), the service was outstanding and the martinis were awesome. Everything just flowed like it should and honestly, I didn't want to leave. Ended up in Newport the next night, and our meal there wasn't even comparable. You should seriously consider opening up a restaurant there!

    Trio was recommended by the owner of our summer rental but still we were not expecting this perfect dining experience. We were a party of three generations with teenage grandchildren and one vegan. The menu was so varied that everyone was more than satisfied. The service was superb. Very friendly yet very professional. We'll definitely return.

    We've been to Trio before on our trips to Rhode Island, it's right across from out hotel and is so convenient. Not to be missed, the food is amazing and well priced, you get a lot for your money. The pizza, pasta, and salad we had were all superb. We loved the outdoor patio and the band playing!

    The menu has some of everything to please a variety or tastes and moods, all very well prepared and tasty. Excellent, friendly, professional service. The menu has a lot of variety, from simpler burgers and sandwiches, grilled seafood, filet mignon, and salads to more creative items, such as more complicated seafood dishes, pastas, etc. Excellent starters focused on seafood, including top-rate stuffed clams. Noteworthy bar menu, wine list, etc. Desserts are delish! Reasonable prices for the quality of the food. Three dining areas -- a dining room, a bar area with high tables, and the outdoor terrace. The dining terrace has a view of the famous Narragansett Towers and seaside beyond, but is not right on the water.

    Our first trip to Trio, we brought an out of town guest (a caterer in Ohio). It was a Tuesday evening & we made a reservation an hour ahead of time. We were immediately seated & had our choice of indoor or outdoor. We chose outdoor. We had attentive wait staff - not pushy but easily accessible at all times. Menu had a good variety and decent wine list. Had the calamari appetizer & it was great - light and tasty. I had the scallops entree & it was good - not great - beautiful presentation but not as flavorful as I would have expected. DH had the Shrimp - a huge dish and he ate it all, loved it. Our friend had the chowder & licked it clean as well as the Shrimp & Grits appetizer and loved it all. We will definitely be back.

    We had a memorable dinner here but not all for the right reasons. We were seated in a great banquet. After ordering a 3 course with wine pairings and a cheese course to go with cocktails. At one point we had full cocktails, a cheese course, our appetizers and half of the table had its wine pairing. Service was horrendous and stayed that way through the entire meal, even after a visit by the manager. Our foods kept over lapping and the wine service was never completed. The final was they messed up the splitting of the bill. Beautiful food served in a nice place but service was horrendous.

    Trio came recommended by a couple of friends. They didn't give us very much info,but we assumed it would be someplace special. The restaurant is nice enough and has a nice location in the towns tourist section. We were seated on the patio. Getting a drink took too long. Our waitress seemed to be distracted by other parties. Once we ordered food, all came quickly. I had the chopped salad which was good. My wife had the clam chowder which was pretty standard and pretty salty. For mains my wife had a lobster roll and I had the fish n chips. Everything was too salty except for the cole slaw which was just bad. Portion of food was fine, but we didn't end up eating everything because the food wasn't great.

    I liked how my best friend and i were greeted when entering the restaurant and led to our table. Wait staff were all very friendly. The only thing that i didn't find quite appetizing with was my order of scallops the center didn't seem fully cooked. I prefer the center not to be all mushy. I loved the vegetables and dessert New england grapenut pudding. Due to my experience with the scallops i wouldn't order it again. Certainly I would be interested in coming back and to try a different dish.

    Trio is a wonderfully modern eclectic American bistro without parallel in my experience in the Narraganset area. Most of the local spots are either very basic seafood or seem to have menus from the 1970's. Trio was a nice surprise with its fresh eclectic menu and inviting modern bistro decor. Somebody really though about this concept and it works. All appetizers and entres were very well prepared, flavors were clean and bold, an emulsified oil here, a spicy tomato purée there, micro greens in meaningful places, meat and fish temperatures exactly as ordered. The menu was varied, there were choices for about every taste, and they knew how to cook them all! Excellent wine and drink list, deserts looked fun, Will be back for sure.

    We dined here on a Friday. They have a great outside patio. Service was outstanding. Waitstaff was friendly and accommodating. Nice variety on the menu made it tough to choose. Went with the flat-iron steak and my wide had the filet mignon. Both excellent. Only drawback was desert portion was a bit small.

    I usually love Trio but this time I ordered Sole Francese which 2 others in my party also ordered and which I've really liked in the past and it was awful.Both of the others who ordered it felt the same. Whoever cooked it just didn't understand how to make it and it tasted like Fish fried in egg (and fish was overcooked). The restaurant wasn't all that busy so don't know why this dish was so poorly done.

    I dined at Trio Rhode Island on July 5th and was looking forward to having the Oysters Rockefeller described in the menu as including anisette along with the other ingredients. When the oysters arrived, there was no taste of the anisette so I told the waiter. He said he would speak with the chef and several minutes later came back to explain that the anisette was applied before the oysters were cooked, implying that was the reason I couldn't taste the anisette. No apology was forthcoming and I really did not appreciate his condescending attitude. My entree was a run-of-the mill bolognese with very little flavor and the waitstaff was inattentive and sloppy. Needless to say, I will not dine at Trio Rhode Island again!

    The good: The lobster tortellini was unbelievable. The shrimp cocktail excellent. All other items were solid choices. The not so good: Our waitress, while very pleasant, did not do a good job managing our table. She would clear the table only partially, and didn't wipe off before dessert. Service was slowish, which is fine, but when you are there, finish the job.

    I called a few hours before arriving and was told they could not accommodate my party of 8, so I made two reservations, each for a party of four. We were ready to split up if necessary, but when we arrived they sat us all together. Interestingly enough, there were five 8-tops around us that were empty the entire time we were there. Makes you wonder . . . Food was good, service was great. Good night overall but a bewildering experience with the reservation process.
