Our server Eddie was friendly, helped me decide on the strawberry shortcake. It was amazing! The salmon was great.

We rated the service only a 2 because it was too good. When at a restaurant like Trio you want to have a relaxing experience where you cannot only enjoy the food, but also have a relaxing time/conversation with your partners. We got our drinks fast, then came the salads fast, and then the food -- You got it FAST!! Wham/Bam and we were done in less than 45 minutes. Suggestion -- Slow things down and let your diners enjoy the experience.

We have dined at Trio for many years and have never been disappointed. Today we were celebrating a birthday and received a free dessert which was very nice. Our server was personable, attentive, and stayed on top of things. We are also long time diners at Grand Finale. However, now that it is closed , we will definitely be dining at Trio even more often. I believe I have also found a French Onion soup offering that will help me with the transition away from my beloved Grand Finale Onion soup. We were seated on time and the service was spot on.

Our waitress was attentive but not insistent - the special of the day was a favorite of my friends’ s so that was a treat for her (walleye). We stayed and chatted for awhile but was not made to feel unwanted and even was offered more water and coffee.

I have been in for dinner on consecutive weekends and both seafood features I had were outstanding! The scallops feature last weekend and the bouillabaisse last night were unique and great value for money.

As usual, I received great service from Bill, Laurel and Catelyn.

Thank you very much for continuing to hold to a high standard.

Our group of 7 had the bouillabaisse, braised ribs, shrimp, salmon salad, fried chicken salad, and a cheeseburger. All reported their food was wonderful. Service was great in this time where it isn't always. Appreciated being seated at round table for good socializing. Trio is a distance from my home in KY but the few times I've eaten there it's always been great; still true.

Never been here before but the menu looked good. For the price, my husband and I weren’t wowed and therefore don’t think we would come back. Also felt like the youngest couple in the restaurant.

Nobody wore masks! None of the waiters or greeters. Patrons didn’t wear masks at any time whether eating, drinking, or going to the restrooms. This is not acceptable for this time of pandemic. We shall return when some acknowledgement of the current situation is apparent.

The Sea Bass Chef’s special was amazing. The server recommended it saying that it was the best of any she had tasted anywhere. Never having tried it before, I will have to now say it is perhaps my favorite fish.
My wife and I were both celebrating our birthdays, and they offered to box one of the deserts to go. We ate the Banana Cream Pie there, and took home the Carrot Cake. They were both excellent.
The server was impeccable!

Food was good. The meatloaf wasn’t as good as I was hoping for. Wish I would have got the burger after seeing another person order it. Lots of foot traffic next to our table as we were seated next to the kitchen entrance.
