Two of us shared an appetizer, one entrée and two wines. Bill was $88. Halibut entrée was a bit pricey but they divided in two in the kitchen and was adequate for two if you have appetizer. It was very delicious. Crab cake appetizer was not to my liking - served with a spicy kimchi and bread was dry. I will return because location is convenient and food is generally good. Service was good considering how crowded it was .

We’ve been to Trio at least 50 times over the years. We go back because the food and service never fails to please. The menu offers choices from casual to gourmet. Keep up the great work and we’ll keep coming back.

Enjoyable dining experience. Appetizer of shrimp bruschetta was excellent. Wasn't crazy about where we sat due to kitchen traffic and noise but overall this is a great place with excellent wines and delicious food.

Variety of menu items that meet the needs of both meat lovers & vegetarians. Booths offer more intimate dining but are on the small size. Tables offer more elbow room. Servers are attentive without being intrusive.

This is my favorite place to dine in the area. From the minute the hostess Carol greets you, till the sweet waitress Joyce, serves you their delicious food, it is a great experience. Always feels special. I use Open Table to assure a seat.

We can always expect a good reliable dining experience. Great choices. Exceptional variety of salads. Noise level usually moderate allowing for good conversation with friends . Last evening we could barely hear each other across the table it was so crowded and noisy. It is that time of year🍾🎉🍷.We have been co I got here for years and will be back.

I love Trio and have dined there many times. This week I treated my friend for her 75th Birthday and thought it would be a good choice since she had not dined at Trio's for several years. We both ordered the Cobb Salad and while it was good, it did not seem quite as good as I remembered. We asked for the salad to be chopped and mixed and it did not arrive quite that way, but I did tell the server not to worry about it. The salad seemed to be missing something. We both thought it should have blue cheese on it, which is common for Cobb Salad, but apparently Trio's does not serve it that way. Overall a nice lunch, good wine and she loved the gift! I will definitely come back to Trio's.

We're fans of this bistro! We love the food. They have a good wine list with some evenings 1/2 price. The flatbreads, Nicose salad and Naples salad are some of our favorites! Also given lower noise level--it's a great meeting spot for friends to catch-up!!

it was happening for a Thursday night! went with some girlfriends, and was caught in a HUGE traffic backlog... our server quickly brought me a glass of wine. Didn't catch his name but he was really good. We had the cauliflower app, rich and relish! ( toast points seemed stale ). we each had salads, the dressing on my salmon salad was tasty, and for a $1 ( wasn't informed about the surcharge but it was well worth it ) subbed goat for feta, and had spinach salad added!! nice ambiance to get a good meal and catch up with good friends!

This was my first time having brunch at Trio's. It was excellent! The Eggs Benedict were cooked just right, and the side of potatoes were the best anywhere. Our waiter was very attentive and listened to my friend's explicit directions...and delivered perfectly. Even she was blown away! I will definitely return for brunch, as well as for lunch, which I've had there many times. I highly recommend this restaurant!
