Café Trio Ratings and Reviews
Excellent restaurant! Been going since the original on Broadway. Richard is the best staff member. The others are great as well. Seafood lasagna, Mac and cheese, coffe hanger steak, just some the great dishes. One of my favorite KC Original next to Macaluso's.
Convenient location with wonderful view of the Country Club Plaza. Best mussels on the planet ... seriously, I've checked! Holiday decorations are always phenomenal, patio available [and warm] year-round! If you are looking for a place the Locals love, you've found it!
We had appetizers with friends there. Great Cranberry Margaritas! Crab cakes and pulled pork flatbread were great! My wife had the Best Mac & Cheese. I ordered the delicious Short Ribs. All were exceptional. We have also had Corporate Events there and had excellent results. Everything was decorated for the holidays. Absolutely Beautiful!
Another beautiful eating it cafe Trio. One member of our party had the turkey dinner and said it was delicious. The three others had the hanger steak which was incredible again! Never have never had a bad meal at Cafe Trio. Great people there . Love the place!!
My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner. We'd been here for a large family event a few years ago, and really enjoyed it, so thought we'd try it out again for just the two of us. We loved it. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the 6-oz filet, med-rare, and it was cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were *almost* as good as mine. My husband ordered the scallops, and he said they were cooked perfectly as well. We had beers, Boulevard on tap, but I'll probably look into their wine list next time. As for the ambiance, it was lovely, decorated for the Christmas holiday, with soft, jazzy Christmas music playing overhead. It was festive and enlivening. Looking forward to returning soon.
The best dining experience Kansas City has to offer!! Fantastic venue, mouth watering food and spectacular service!! Richard rocks!!! We had to keep reminding ourselves that we weren’t eating in NYC or San Francisco!! Thank you Cafe Trio for lifting the bar and bringing Kansas City up to the level of class and sophistication one finds on the coasts!! We will definitely be back for more!!
Cafe Trio continues to be one of our all time favorite Kansas City restaurants. Beginning with the greeter at the door and continuing right through the servers, the staff is friendly yet professional. The food is always very well done and can be counted on to be of high quality.
The service Saturday night was impeccable. We were going to a concert, so we told the waitress what time we wanted to leave, and the bill was complete at that time. All the staff are quite attentive. The salmon chowder was excellent, as was the apple brûlée for dessert. The wedge salad was ok. I did not care for the halibut because it had a lot of odd flavors added to it. I love halibut, but the additions were so strong that I couldn’t taste the halibut at all. I wished I had ordered the scallops, which I have had on previous visits and enjoyed.
