Overpriced. Don’t overthink your order. The simpler and cheaper, the better.

Food was delicious- 4 of 5 in our party loved their food, with one feeling it was good but not great. Service was a little spotty. Overall a very pleasant evening

Used to love Trios but not so much on our last visit. Menu is limited and had to send food back, except for the onion soup.

I’ve always liked Trio. My guest and I upon leaving both remarked we have never had a bad meal in the years we’ve been going from simple lunches like today, to the more full entree and drinks experiences.

The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived at 7:30 on a Friday night. The menu contained many delicious options. Both cocktails were well-prepared. My gin martini had ice flecks in it with blue cheese stuffed olives - just the way I like it. My wife had the special Valentine's martini with little hearts floating on top and red sugar on the rim; she loved it. We opted to start with a cup of soup: vegetable for my wife and NE clam chowder for me. Both were hit and tasty. I generally don't care for clam chowder but this one was outstanding. We both followed with a pasta dish for the main course; we enjoyed both dishes that were well prepared and plated. We don't normally have dessert, but it was St. Valentine's day. So, I had a great banana pie tart with a sweet and tasty filling and fresh bananas. My wife enjoyed a slice of carrot cake; she said it was great with maple syrup on the plate. Wonderful experience for us both.

Very small grouper sandwich! Sitting at table between two doors with a lot of traffic! Bloody Mary was small with a lot of ice! Disappointing for valentine day lunch! Expensive! Not a good experience. But service was excellent!

We have been frequenting Trios for years and my latest visit with friends reinforced why we like this restaurant. Trios always has an interesting menu and a good wine selection. The well-paced service is accommodating and contributes to the enjoyment of the meal.

Always great service and a menu that you can count on. In this day and age, it would be nice for TRIO to offer some healthy vegan options- it’s not that hard to do. Or even offer an amazing salad full of various raw greens, veggies, maybe fruit, nuts.

We were both very excited to enjoy our favorite halibut dish at Trio's but were instead very disappointed to see that the halibut dish was no longer the Miso Glazed Halibut with Coconut Ginger Rice, Sautéed Asian Vegetables, and Lemon Miso Butter but had been replaced with Halibut with Sushi Rice Arancini, Bok Choy, and Coconut Curry. Neither of us ate the bok choy and we found the sushi rice arancini a bit of an odd, sticky texture with either little flavor added to the overall meal. My girlfriend felt the amount of sauce on the plate made the meal border on being soup-like.
The halibut itself was excellent. It always has been and it's the #1 reason we've continued to return to Trio's; but with the Miso Glazed Halibut with Coconut Ginger Rice no longer a menu option, it's likely we'll be exploring other dining options in the future.

The food is very inconsistent. I usually love the wedge salad but the blue cheese crumbles were overwhelming and the presentation left a lot to be desired. The waitress seemed put off by us and we were pretty easy group so not sure why.

Trio was loud because I happened to sit between the business guys at different tables talking on their phones. The restaurant itself was not loud.
The server was super great and the atmosphere was great. I enjoyed the food.
A great time

We were seated in a private room that started off quiet then got louder as they seated other parties.
Food and service were great. This is a great place for a business lunch.

A great experience. I don’t dine here often but when I do I’m always pleased. The food, service and ambiance are awesome! I was so looking forward to the French Onion soup and it was just as good as in the past. The lunchtime crowd speaks volumes about Trio. The place was buzzing. Can’t wait to return.

Trio food, staff and environment made for a delightful dinner. It really showed my friend who I was treating, that she is special. We had a great time and I feel like I've found a gem. I will be back. Bill was our waiter, and he had the perfect combination of attention and awareness, but never hovering to point of being bothersome.

First time here. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Ian was our server. He was very personable and friendly. We were planning to share the waffle but he recommended that we take a chance on French toast, and he was correct. It was different and very good. I have the avacado and tomato Benedict which was excellent. Overall the food came out room temp which surprised me because we got it very quick. We arrived at 1040 and was all done by 1130. Good experience. Would recommend.

Once again, our dinner was exceptional Saturday. Trio is our favorite restaurant because the menu is diversified, allowing us to choose from a variety of meats and seafood; the food is expertly prepared and brought to the table at the right temperature; the wait staff is well trained and does an excellent job of serving; and the atmosphere is relaxed and convivial.

Waiter needs to understand the importance of making sure the food is properly presented. French toast is never eaten without syrup. Finally I had to ask another waiter for syrup since ours did not check in to see how it was received. Secondly, due to a certain condition, I will need beverage with my meals at all times. My tea glass was empty, and my waiter finally asked if I wanted a refill after I decided it was over.
Hope it’s better if I choose to return.
