Never been disappointed at King Street Trio. Would highly recommend for a nice evening out. The owner goes above and beyond to make sure you experience is the best.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
