My husband and I went out on a date night, and though we enjoyed our meal overall we wouldn't rush back.
The service was almost laughable - owner and server were too attentive in some ways, actually explained to us how a restaurant and ordering worked and read us the feature menus that we had been handed and reviewed in detail (hello - we know how to read and even when we commented we had fully reviewed it they kept going). If they dialed it back a little without hovering it would have been nicer.
Calamari was very disappointing as were most of the sauces with the dishes, lacking flavour. The steak was too chewy, the pickerel wasn't cooked as well as it could have been and the sauce tasted too heavy of bacon fat.
Deserts were average - panacotta was not worth the $.
Though we had a decent night I would consider food average at best. With so many other great options in the region it's unlikely we will return or recommend.
A good place for a date dinner a very lucky plac
Has become our go to resturant for dinner in downtown Waterloo. Food is always great. Staff is friendly and work well as a team to ensure you have a great meal.
Delicious food, quiet atmosphere, and a most attentive wit staff. A gem for Waterloo!
Never disappoint, great service and the food is superb
Food here is done very well and precisely - Easily the best mac n' cheese I've ever had (part of the King Crab Platter). While most mac n' cheese tends to be on the heavier and greasier side, King Street's take is delicious bite after bite until there is regrettably none left. My partner ordered the rib eye which was executed perfectly, another wonderful entree. Our plates were clean. Service was efficient and food comes out pretty quickly (great for us). I love my dessert (filo pastry cheesecake) which has a wonderful texture and just a touch of sweetness.
Don't judge this place by it's exterior! It does not look great from the street but inside it goes upscale very quickly. Well laid out comfortable, great service and excellent top end food.
Came on a Monday which provided 25% off you food bill just because! The place was not only packed but the service was still super attentive and fun. All the serving staff had smiles on their faces. Got to sit directly beside the kitchen and see the chefs work which i think was the best seats in the house. The presentation on the plates made them almost too pretty to eat. I've come before for dinner here with family evenings and they never disappoint. Definitely going to go enjoy another evening out at King Street Trio in the near future.
Ordered 2 entrees only with little delay. Wrong wine brought to table. Then waited over 30 minutes for food to arrive. Chicken dinner was decent; seafood was lacklustre. Carb was a piece of French bread with a pesto spread; squid was rubbery. Server was nice enough but the kitchen let her down. The 25% off Monday discount might make it worth an overall Fair.
Being greeted both upon arrival and departure by the owner was most impressive. The service was outstanding and the food was very good.
First their appetizers escargot fricasse, bakes apple brie were simply wonderful. Tried their ossobucco, porkloin and they were delicious and a good size portion. Key lime pie meringue at its best!
Awesome experience totally recommend it to anyone
Food and drinks were fantastic! Service was friendly and professional.
Food and Service was very good. We were there 4hours and enjoyed every minute!
It was a very good meal nothing else needs to be said. Come out for mar 22 cooking presentation - it’s lobster night :)
We had an amazing first experience at King Street Trio for our Anniversary. Having the manager/ owner at the front door to greet everyone, check in on your meals and say good-bye as you're leaving made it feel like you were a guest at this chic restaurant. Every bite was amazing and there was no need to ever ask for anything- the service was great! We had the oysters to start, the new local, hormone free steak and hazelnut flourless brownie for dessert.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Will definitely go back.
Amazing service, great food, and very attentive staff. The cheesecake was absolutely amazing, I'd have to go again just for it. Steak cooked perfectly as well. We went for a special occasion and they even added a sparkler to the cheesecake - very nice touch.
Went for drinks after a movie and ended up getting some apps. Food was great but they could have staggered the apps a bit more then having them all come out at once. It just seemed to be very rushed. Otherwise a great place to eat and will definitely be back!
This may be my favorite restaurant in the Waterloo area.
King street trio is the whole package. A great atmosphere , delicious food an attentive staff. Will definitely go back!
This place was great. One of the best Steaks I’ve had in the city. Great atmosphere and our waitress was awesome. We will be back.
fantastic night on Valentine’s Day! Food was delicious and ambiance was so romantic ! I have recommended many friends abt this restaurant.
Valentine’s Day dinner, very busy and great value
From the moment we entered we were warmly welcomed by the restaurant owner himself, a touch I felt was quite nice and made our business feel appreciated. It was the first Valentine's Day for myself and my girlfriend and the ambiance they had created was great.
The food was spectacular and well presented with good portion sizes. The cocktail and wine list offered plenty of choice and the key lime pie was to die for.
Definitely worth paying a visit!
Great spot for anyone near the square. Quiet little place that has great food
What an absolutely spectacular dinner we enjoyed last Tuesday. It wasn't just the exquisite food prepared specifically to our liking. We were greeted and treated as the most important guests that the Trio has ever had. It so makes us want to come back. And we will.
Great spot for dinner. We had a warm welcome from the owner, the truffle Mac& cheese is to die for and the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely recommend King Street Trio!
From the moment we walked in we were taken care of in a friendly and respectful manner. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Fantastic place! Always has amazing food and service! This place is one of our favourite places to go for date night!
Every entree I try is better than the last. The servers are attentive, and not too attentive. Atmosphere is upscale and cosmopolitan. The food is inspired. Small wonder this has been one of my favourite restaurants for 30 years.
Very nice experience, excelente food. Would recomend
The food was amazing and the service was fantastic.
Always well taken care of. Graciously greated upon arrival and leaving. Food is excellent. Nice quiet and modern atmosphere. Waitstaff is excellent, and very knowledgable about the menu and beveverages, wine list ect. Love dining at King Street Trio...
Went on a date here and had some of the best service I have ever had at a restaurant.
Wonderful food and service. Would definitely go again.
We were there for New Years Eve. As always, the food was exceptional and the service great.
Heard about King Street trip through Open Table recommendations. Took the chance and drove to Waterloo and we were not disappointed. My husband enjoyed the Raspberry point oysters and I liked the calamari. Main course choices of steak and rainbow trout were also excellent. We enjoyed talking to our waiter and the owner. They are very committed to doing their best.
Excellent service and menu options for a relaxing and stress free Christmas eve. Staff were very friendly even though they all had families waiting for them on this special night. Hats off to all for this memorable experience.
