This was our first visit to King Street Trio. The evening was perfect, from the entrance to exit!
Alex was our server and was friendly, professional and gave us good suggestions off of the menu.
We were seated across from the chef which was very cozy and we enjoyed watching the Chef plate the food! We started with Suppli Di Riso (Crisp risotto balls filled with Mozzarella, set in Romesco sauce, and finished with Asiago cheese). My husband and I both ordered the steak which was cooked perfectly!! Our friends enjoyed the Stuffed Chicken Supreme and the Seafood Cioppino. We were too full for dessert but our friends enjoyed Filo Wrapped Vanilla Cheesecake and Coffee Panna Cotta.
We can't say enough - everything was perfect! We will DEFINITELY be back!

Our waiter could not have been more attentive! We never felt rushed or neglected. I was with an elderly relative with hearing problems and he took the time lean in closer so she could hear him. Our meals were absolutely delicious and arrived hot and well presented. We both ate every bite. We were there on a busy Saturday night so the noise level made it difficult to carry on a conversation. As some of the patrons cleared out, this improved. A wonderful dining experience!!

We have been to KInig St. Trio for many dinners over the years ant their various locations, but the current location in Uptwon Waterloo is the best. We have recently been enjoying the chef's demonstration dinners with wine pairings. The evenings are very interesting, the food is always unique and delicious, and Brian and the team have a very personal approach in service and we always feel very well looked after.

Best Oysters in town, Best Caesar Salad in town, best Filet Mignon in town and best Lamb Rack in town. I've never felt the need to order anything else because those items are always amazing. Ingredients are always top notch; you can taste the quality. If you're a tequila fan, don't forget to ask for a shot of the chilled Dobel. Always a great experience. Keep up the good work Brian!

Six girlfriends started our day with a matinee at the theatre. Following the theatre we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at King Street Trio. The food was awesome and the service was amazing! As a group we dine out frequently and we now have King Street Trio at the top of our fine dining list. We will definitely return. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice dinner at the King Street Trio restaurant. Service was excellent, food was great (expensive but not over-priced). Nice table for two away from the main crowd. Located in Uptown Waterloo, there's lots of parking just around the corner. Restaurant was busy on Saturday night with several large groups but noise level was fine.

We had a wonderful meal and delicious wine (my 8 oz. filet mignon was cooked a perfect medium rare). We were greeted very graciously and our table service was immediate. Our server was friendly and respectful, and made great recommendations when asked. I had the best crème brulee ever for dessert and my wife had the key lime pie, which was exactly as our server described: "to die for". Even the coffee was excellent. Would not hesitate to eat there again.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much . We had never been and were pleasantly surprised at the high level of hospitality. The only downside was that in my reservation I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary and at no point was this addressed by the staff. As a restaurant manager myself I was disappointed with this oversight.

We were warmly greeted at the door and received prompt and friendly service. Our server exhibited a good understanding of the menu items. I ordered trout for myself and my spouse and filet mignon for our 12 year old who is a very picky eater. He had never eaten off the kids menu before so I had my doubts. His meal was devoured with great pleasure (as were ours). Desserts were as delicious as the entrees. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Always attentive and very knowledgable with the menu. We even had the manager filling our water for us. Everyone chippped in to make it a great night. And to top it off they brought us a free dessert for our anniversary.

The food was very good although not particularly creative. The service was very fast, and the server was very attentive - perhaps too attentive, given we were hoping for a relaxed meal "event". Noise level surprisingly high for the less than 50% tables occupied (on a Monday evening), which may not bother the younger crowd at all.

The service was the best we've ever had from a restaurant. Alex (our waiter) was super friendly, helpful, observant and available.

The food was flawless from the appetizers to the desserts. We both highly recommend having the duck or special featuring it. Best dish I've had the pleasure of tasting.
