Our waiter, Devin, was very good. He was knowledgeable about the menu, specials, and drink choices. Each of the four ordered a different entre' and everyone was very pleased with their choice for dinner. Overall experience was good and we will visit Trio's again!

Usually Trio’s is great on food and ambience but the experience was not as good this time. The restaurant was very noisy making it difficult to hear. I ordered the halibut which is usually delicious. This time it was overcooked and tough. The rest of the meal was OK but it was not up to the standard I am used to from Trio’s.

I’ve never had a bad meal at Trio but my meal was just not good this time. I had the short rib stroganoff!

This was a most unusual trip to Trio’s. The service is usually outstanding. My family seemed to like our server, but I found her needing more training in the Trio’s way of, “Of course we can do that”. When she was asked for a special request, it came with a caveat on her part, which felt resistant to me. The other thing that bothered me was the quality of her voice. It felt loud and grating.
She was kind and her service was fair, she just needs some polish.
I know these sound picky, but when you live in the neighborhood and have been eating at Trios since it opened, an experience that isn’t pleasant sticks out.

I had never tried the steak before. This was pretty good but I think I’m going to stick to fish. That seems to be a good choice for Trio

Went for restaurant week. Everything that came out was beautifully plated and prepared. Wonderful flavor combinations and top quality ingredients!!! I had the Halibut which I loved. We were allowed to share the restaurant week meal which was nice as we’re not big eaters and we could try multiple items from menu. Thanks Trio! We’ll be back.

We were there on a Thursday during Restaurant Week. Even though the restaurant was full - our service was impeccable. Our waitress was patient and available whenever we needed her. The servers brought our food in the polite customary manner and our waitress followed up quickly to bring more water and
to offer more beverages.
All four of us ordered different items and we were all thrilled with our choices. A few of the tables were extra-lively and rather loud, so we were thrilled to have our booth. All in all it was a great evening and of course we'll be back! Many thanks for your hard work and consistent great food and awesome service.

Service at Trio has always been outstanding. We have brought family and friends at Trio on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is always good. As an added treat on this visit, my husband received a complimentary dessert for his birthday. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was good, but not outstanding; service was fantastic. The restaurant was very loud; difficult to have any sort of conversation at all due to all the other diners conversations. We will probably not return because of the noise level.

I have never had a bad dining experience at Trio's. Their line-up for restaurant week was one of the best I had seen at any of the participating restaurants. The filet was delicious! I wish I had ordered the lemon cheesecake instead of the chocolate cake for dessert. My husband's cheesecake looked fabulous, but the chocolate cake was cold and hard in the middle. I was thinking it was going to be a lava cake. It was still delicious, don't get me wrong. Just not what I had expected.

I had the goat cheese burger, which was delicious. I also had the bread pudding for dessert...it was wonderful. I hope they keep the bread pudding through the holidays. it's the perfect warm dessert for fall, with the apples and cinnamon. It's a festive holiday dessert. I loved it.

We went during restaurant week and had a great meal. The options for the restaurant week menu were very good and they had 25% off wine as well. The food came out well cooked and delicious. Only slight negative was the service was a bit slow at times but I think that was because they were so crowded.

Hadn't been there in a long time, and after my friends and I went on Thursday, we wondered why we had waited so long. The atmosphere is nice, and the service was excellent. The menu is varied, with something for everyone. All four of us enjoyed our lunches. Will definitely be back!
