Hip & glamorous, Café Trio blends outstanding cuisine and cocktails for an award winning “Come as you are” casual fine dining experience offering the perfect “Trio” of great Local Food, Art and Live Music. The Starlet Lounge at Café Trio evokes a bygone era complete with Hollywood Starlets and the always playing classic movie with specialty martinis, traditional cocktails and an extensive list of wine and beer with Live Music Tuesday through Saturday. Large outdoor terrace offers one of kind views of the Country Club Plaza & J.C. Nichols Fountain. Chef Michael Giampetruzzi uses a cornucopia of local and regional produce and artisan ingredients for a very well curated menu. Expect to be greeted with a smile by both the staff & owners, Tai and Chris. Cafe Trio is one of Kansas City's most popular restaurants awarded multiple Kansas City “Best Of” designations including “Best Overall Restaurant” designations including “Best Overall Restaurant”.

    We have been going to Trio before the Main street location, the food and service has ALWAYS been the best. We have taken friends from in town and visitors to KC and they have always been impressed. We always ask for Richard's table as he is the best.

    We ate there for the first time about this time last year and loved it. It was one of the first places we booked for dinner when we knew we were going to return. There are lots of good restaurants in the KC plaza area, but in our mind this one just may be the top!!

    The service was excellent. Food taste was mediocre to bland. What I received didn't fully match the menu description. Food presentation was very good. The live piano was excellent & not too loud. Overall it was overpriced.

    We made reservations for 8 PM and left after 9 PM without eating dinner. Our server brought us water, then disappeared. He brought my date a beer, took my drink order, & our order for crab cakes (which were amazing), then disappeared. I tried to get his attention for another drink but he was MIA. When he came back to refill my date’s water, 25 minutes after we ordered dinner, we asked for our check. He seemed surprised we didn’t want to wait for dinner. He didn’t even offer to bring me another drink when he picked up my empty glass. We stopped by the mater-de’s stand to let him know we were leaving unhappy and hungry when another server came up behind us and said “it’s only been 30 minutes”. Not quite sure why he felt it necessary to insert himself into a situation he had not been involved in, but nonetheless, he did. My date has been there before and had me so excited to try it for the first time. Not a great experience. Super disappointed. Again, the crab cakes were amazing! My date ordered the burger, which they were out of.
