    Despite the best efforts of our waiter, a disheartening experience. Started out OK. Had a 5:30 reservation, were seated @ 5:40, just before a party of 20 started showing up. Wine order served promptly, appetizer served at 6:15. Entrees finally served @ 6:55. My wife’s salad was satisfactory. My New York Strip was served medium, as ordered, but warmish at best. Sent my entree back for a warm up and what I got back was a bit warmer soggy mess of mashed potatoes and meat, the meat being the toughtest, most gristley steak I have had in recent memory.

    At the end of a very nice lunch the Cooks and the hostess stood talking while people were waiting for the restroom. Of Which one was full of a baby screaming, for over 15 minutes. The other door was locked. I asked several times if someone was in the room as no one went in or out. They offered no help. Did not even check to see if someone was in there. At one point I asked. She knocked on the door. No one answered. She walked away and continued to talk. It was ridiculous...

    Our server, Grace, was excellent-fun, patient, flexible and accommodating! We were celebrating a birthday and had a great time sharing a variety of dishes( flatbreads, salads, baked penne, and cocktails). The food was delicious! We had a great table, but noticed that a few other tables seemed to lack lighting-wouldn't want to be seated there. Looking forward to going back and trying other items on the menu.

    Always love Cafe Trio. The food is consistently great and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. My only knock would be that the seating by the window(s) can be chilly in winter. Expect to wear your coat or dress accordingly, in case you have to sit there.

    Service was very slow. Had to actually get up and go get the server as she kept walking away and not finishing opening wine and taking orders. It was a strange experience. Trio has been one of our go to restaurants. Food was good. It was a Sunday night, party of 6. Family dinner for my daughters birthday. Disappointed

    I have been to Trio once before and knew my Mother would enjoy it for her birthday - the dinner was great and we were recieved kindly. I appreciated that the staff wore masks throughout the evening. The dinner was delicious and great experience. I will say it was very cold. My mom kept her coat on for the entire dinner as well as most of the guests I saw around her .

    Excellent first experience at Cafe Trio. The staff was lovely, the food was fresh and tasty. Lots of gluten free options. You can get a half size dinner salad. I opted for half a chopped salad & the flat bread with goat cheese & peppers. It was all delicious. We’ll be back.

    We made our reservation online as we were driving to the restaurant and were able to get in immediately. Cute little two-top inside the front entrance. Server was a little slow getting to us but took our order right then. Ordered meatball small plate and a spaghetti entree. Both were delicious. Ordered a side of rosemary flatbread; simply awful and inedible. The focaccia that came with the meal was excellent. Ordered Earl Grey tea. Servers; those who order Earl Grey know exactly the taste. Don’t try and sneak another tea because your out…..and bring sweetener and cream; not just a wedge of lemon….especially if you have zero plans to come back and check on your guests. Restaurant needs a little touch up maintenance here and there but otherwise we would come again. The patio area looked great but didn’t see any outdoor heaters which would have been epic.

    It was easy to make a reservation and, when we arrived, they quickly sat us on the patio, as requested. They have a diverse menu and always accommodate requests for little adjustments to a dish (e.g., omitting the tomatoes from a salad) without any trouble. Trio is consistently good. It's one of my favorite places to have a lunch meeting for work, to meet up with friends for a nice but laid back dinner, and is one of my favorite places to take people new to the city.

    Not too busy in the restaurant, but had to ask for ketchup and had to ask for water to be refilled. I ordered the Caesar salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was very moist and flavorful, but the lettuce was very wilty.

    Loved the outdoor patio. The food was subpar when compared to the early days of Trio. The cocktails had no flavor, I make better drinks at home at a much lower cost.

    The menu hasn’t changed in decades and that’s why we move this place. The menu is perfect, the prices are very fair and the service is always top notch. We have eaten here nearly 100 time in the last decade and will continue to come back as long as they’ll have us.

    We had dinner and 2 of us are gluten free. The gluten free flatbread was delicious with the beets and burrata. The only reason I give the food 4 stars if because the gluten free pasta was overcooked but overall everything was excellent.
