Had two people waiting on us tonight as one was “in training “.While anyone understands the necessity, they “split” the coverage vs just doing in tandem. The unintended result of that ends up unwittingly being a “smothering“ vs “attentive” wait staff. —eg, double the interruptions, double the check-ins etc—became overwhelming .The collective effort becomes unintentionally “hovering.. One apparently got busy —the other took over yet the one who was busy still darted in & out a bit. Both extremely pleasant yet .....

Also,for the newbie/record, don’t think one is supposed to clear one dish when the other person isn’t done?

Overall though, per usual, ambiance, food and pleasant staff was all great Arguably the most consistent restaurant in Cincinnati

The Server was just outstanding. She made a good meal excellent. She was well spoken, extremely professional and attentive to our needs. In the 20+ years my wife and I have had dinner at Trio this was our best experience working with the Server.

Never disappoints!! Salads are particularly good with an excellent variety. Bread could be improved. but a small price to pay for such a good reliable place.

We were a party of three and all ordered the filet steak. All three dinners were perfect. My brother did not like the vegetable soup, had to much broccoli in it. As always, our server (had him before) was just the best. Always waited on, never rushed

I had beef stroganoff and it was very fatty & greasy. My husband and son had the salmon and said it was very dry and flavorless. We left there and paid $92 and felt horrible about our experience. Definitely regretted trying Trio’s and won’t be back.

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.

Always a good place for a nice lunch - never a shortage of customers. Would recommend making a reservation if coming at noon. They have a good variety of menu options, but sometimes the servers seem a bit frenzied and short of patience.

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
