Really good food at the price point. Service was good. Not super fancy. Nice for everyday dining. Would eat there again.
Always a great meal here. I usually get drunken noodles or pad Thai but opted for the steak instead. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. Seafood dumplings were also a standout. Service, as always, was attentive and gracious.
Early dinner. Place was empty except for one other table. Tom Kha soup was very tasty . Chive dumplings were pretty glutenous and awful. Pad thai with chicken was decent, but I've had (and made) better. Another noodle dish (can't remember the name) was just OK. Overall, we were disappointed, because we live in the neighborhood and were hoping for a good Thai restaurant.
Unfortunately we had a baby in the restaurant who liked to screech for no reason at all. Otherwise, we found the food to be very tasty and spiced as we ordered. The stir fry vegetables with chicken was spiced mildly (as we asked for 1 on the spice), and it was plentiful, with lots of chicken, and very tasty. The pad thai with shrimp was done nicely, flavorful, but with less tamarind sauce than I am used to. Service was good, but there were only 3 or 4 tables full at 5pm on a warm Memorial Day weekend Saturday. All in all, the four of us were very satisfied with serving size, value, and service.
My wife ordered pad Thai. The server asked how spicy she would like it on scale of 1 to 5 and she said zero. The pad thai was too spicy, she didn’t eat it and left hungry. The server asked if she wanted something else , but I was already eating and she didn’t want to wait. The server did not offer to take the uneaten dinner off the bill. We just paid and left. We’ve eaten here before and always enjoyed it. This was disappointing.
We were optimistic to have a neighborhood Thai restaurant, but were extremely overwhelmed. What easily could have been a 4/5 star experience was ruined by inattentive staff, as well as ants marching up and down the table.
The food is great you can tell they put a lot into it. The downfall of this nice restaurant is the two teenagers who are the servers. Nice young girls, but, They need to be trained in quality customer service and unfortunately have NO idea how to do their job.
The food was excellent. Staff was efficient and pleasant.
Two people had the same entree, mixed shellfish on a bed or rice --- one loved it, the other found it way too bland. I had excellent lump crab cakes; the fourth diner had a signature noodle dish. He didn't say much about it, but he cleaned his plate. Waitress was pleasant and attentive, the rest of the staff friendly. Very reasonable prices, esp. for a BYOB (bill for a couple w/ 22% tip was about $55). Atmosphere conducive to conversation, maybe b/c the place wasn't crowded. Parking is horrible. We got lucky w/ a spot along Pennsylvania Ave., but parking alone would prevent this suburbanite from returning frequently. If you're in the Museum/Fairmount area, it's a very good choice for casual dining.
The food and service was excellent. However waited almost 40 minutes for our meal which was the hot pot. Could be this takes longer Will go back
We had a Valentine's Day Special and found the offerings appetizing and adequate. Our server was terrific and the setting, a small table with a view, was just right. We'll be back.
This is my 10th visit to Trio. Lovely space with a lively kitchen. Staff cares about customers.
Very good menu with excellent specials. Affordable and you are not rushed out.
Thai wings, basil tofu, so tasty. Love it there. Enjoyable vibe and ambience.
Very good all around. Love the BYO. Food fresh and very good; prices do not kill U. Convenient to Art Museum and Kely Drive
Great foot and great ambiance to eat delicious Thai and talk while sharing a bottle of wine.
This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. I took a friend on Tuesday night, only one other table was filled, service was good, filling our water glasses promptly. Both my dinner guest and I, had "thumbs-down" for the Pad Thai. The dumpling soup was nice and hot on a cold night. I would not recommend this restaurant.
The food was incredible. Would probably recommend take out instead of dining. The service wasn't good. We were the only ones in the restaurant and had to wait multiple times/ask the waiter for our waters to be refilled.
I did not think Trio was great. Food was ok, but having visited VietNam and many other Asian countries, and having tasted the wonderful complexity of flavors and freshness of the foods, I found Trio to be lacking. The food was bland - and none of the dishes stood out with taste. Not bad, but not great. The ambiance was very nice and the service was good but the food was not outstanding or interesting or tasty.
I've been her many times...it is a favorite of mine.
The restaurant is veery pleasant, but the food is ordinary. Not bad, but not great.
FOOD WAS delicious ! Huge portions, affordable price and it’s BYOB! What more could you ask for ?!
Service was friendly and helpful as we were not familiar with all Tai food. Food was better than good and we took home enough for lunch the next day. Drunken Noodles were the best Tai I ever had
We used to love this restaurant Trio however the service and quality of the food are very disappointing as of late. The waiter was lacking customer service. There is no effort on his part. As an example: 1) Had to tell him for refill of water even though he saw that our glass were empty ( he was on our table more than twice). 2)We asked for a bucket to put our white wine but none was given....and so on...Then the food 👎👎👎. What happened? Where are the real chefs? This used to be our favorite Asian restaurant and where we always bring our friends when they visit. Very disappointing.
As new tenants in the building, this place was far more convenient than making dinner amid the detritus of boxes and mess, and easier than delivery. We opted for several appetizers in lieu of a full meal and found the food to be tasty, the service quick and personable, and prices reasonable. It may become a “go to” option!
I've been here many times and will continue to come back. Great food and great friendly staff.
Very fresh and tasty seafood combination and my wife had the crispy duck, her favorite.
This is a BYOB, the portions are a nice size and the wait staff, accommodating. A casual neighborhood gem.
Wonderful food served in good but not huge portions. Many different choices and a willingness to improvise with some dishes.
Service was really good. Food was just ok. Restaurant is hooked to a hotel/apt building.
The food was REALLY great. Everything was was well-prepared and the service was extremely efficient and friendly without being intrusive.
A real find. Can’t wait to go back.
Nice Thai food, wonderful service, a great neighborhood place --and BYOB, too!
Had a lovely dinner at this BYOB to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was great and the noise level was such that we could pleasantly carry on a conversation.
We went to Trio and arrived approximately at the time of reservation. We were offered to sit at a table for two in a narrow pathway that lead from the front door of the restaurant into the main dining room. We told him we did not want to sit at that table which everyone coming into and out of the restaurant would've passed within six inches of our a table. They told us they had no other table available for two for us. We left the restaurant.
Love Trio! I've been going to Trio for many years and this was my first time since it moved into the 2601 building. It didn't disappoint! Still love the drunken noodles. Crispy duck was a touch overcooked but very yummy. Had the special summer rolls and chicken sate appetizer, all very good!
The service at the new Trio is extremely slow. Additionally, we had made a reservation on OpenTable and were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time even though tables were open at the time we arrived. Additionally, I was disappointed that they decor had not been updated from the original Isabel BYO and doesn't match what you'd expect at a Thai restaurant.
Overall the food was good, but I would not run back unless I was too lazy to run to one of Fairmount's other options.
Food is good as usual. Service was not so hot; never is. New place is not as nice as old. It was really warm inside. They wouldn't turn on the AC.
