Staff were amazing, the food was 100% vegan and perfect. couldn't of asked for a better experience. ❤
Great food and friendly atmosphere. Waitstaff were attentive but not overly so, clean restaurant with delicious hot fresh food. Can I just say I cant believe it was vegan?! So good
Good vegan food, with friendly staff and a laid-back atmosphere.
Food was good lousiest service I’ve had at an establishment in a very long time! I won’t go back just because of that not worth the drive or money for the poor quality of service I could even tip the 20% I normally do. Didn’t deserve what tip I left but she did do the work even if it was substandard. Ribs were tough Mac n cheese good cornbread good even though I asked for no butter on it I got butter, my niece didn’t get her beverage but she got ribs she didn’t order. People around us seemed to get great service. I’d hate to think it’s because we were black. I refuse to think that! Waitress was too busy socializing, I’d prefer to think that. Finally after not even asking us if we wanted dessert my friend had to get up to go get her attention ask for 2 go boxes and our bill.
We had a great experience at trio plant based! Our waitress was extremely friendly and basically had to serve the whole restaurant herself which caused quite the lag in getting our items, BUT she was great and it totally wasn't her fault! My husband got the trio platter and the food was great- everyone loved the cornbread and mac and cheese and herbivorous butcher ribs are always a win too! I got the grilled cheese and was only slightly disappointed because I was expecting homemade cheese. It was still very good though! The peach cobbler had great flavors, but was a little soupy- I would've liked it to have a little more crust crunch. Overall we had a good experience and would definitely go back!
Love this place! My new found Vegan restaurant! EVERYTHING about this place was awesome! From the ease of making a reservation, to the table being ready when we arrived, to the attentive service, and ESPECIALLY the food! Everything we ordered was delish! Really worth checking out, you won't be disappointed!
I did not expect the ambiance to be as exquisite as it was and I was very pleasantly surprised. As a longtime vegetarian and new vegan, I was skeptical that I wouldn't like the food, but it was OUTSTANDING!!! The chili was sensational and the burger and fries were delicious too. But the holy grail was the chicken enchiladas and Spanish rice. YUM!!! Our waitress was so sweet and accommodating and the owner came to our table and greeted us as well. I will definitely be back soon!
Fantastic selections for our lunch group. I especially appreciated the gluten free options. The mac&cheese was tasty. Our family was completely satisfied with each meal and loved the desserts. We will definitely be back to visit this friendly establishment.
The food was very good and so was the service. A nice new vegan place to eat!
The food is very fresh, worth the price. Despite being on Lake street it's quiet, with early 2000s hits playing in the background. The staff is friendly and cheerful. Great experience, would definitely go again!
THIS IS AMAZING! I took my vegetarian friend here (I am neither vegetarian nor vegan) and we absolutely loved it. Seriously great food for a great price. We got the BLT sandwich and the soul food platter with ribs, corn bread, sweet potatoes, and Mac and cheese. Both were phenomenal. I only docked stars because the food took 5-10 minutes longer than I expected (not a huge deal, our server was awesome), and because of the reservation issue. I booked two people 7:30 Friday night a week before (I got follow up texts confirming the table). We arrived at 7:28 to be told they didn’t have a table for us (even though there was multiple tables dragged together for a larger group that hadn’t arrived yet) and we could eat at the bar or come back in 30 minutes. We didn’t get an apology or anything, the hostess was very nonchalant about it. We went over to a brewery for 30 minutes so no biggie, but we walked out wondering what the point of booking the reservation was? Also, when we arrived at 8:10 the large table hadn’t yet been filled, they came at shortly after. It was honestly no big deal, just sort of silly that a big section of the restaurant was empty while people with reservations were being turned away for 30 minutes. I won’t let this stop me from returning, some hostesses are better than others and the rest of the service was excellent! Just get to your reservation early or have a plan B prepared!
The staff honestly, made my daughter’s birthday over the top amazing. They know what they did, it was amazing, and we’ll forever remember them for it. We are forever in your debt :)!!
The food was overall very good. Though the BLT was apparently off the hook, two out of two diners vehemently agree.
The chips and cheese need work. The cheese veered towards flavorless and the chips were fresh out of the bag, which is fine but the cheese needs to be a bullseye for store bought chips to fly.
Lasagna was very tasty, though a touch dry.
🐥 quesadilla was the clear winner and their house made, almond based caramel apple dipping sauce was fun and delightful.
A special little spot that has a very bright future thanks to a staff committed to badassery as an art form.
Other than a fairly long wait for food it was a great experience. Servers were present & helpful. Can’t wait to try other menu offerings.
I can’t say I enjoyed the food very much. My husband had their burger and fries which were extremely salty. I had lasagna which was good but also in my opinion overpriced $20. Wasn’t a fan of their ribs. There is some cheapness to the whole interior. Don’t think I will be coming back here. That said staff was super nice, our server was fantastic and very friendly. Compared to say J Selby’s (another vegan place in St. Paul) this place isn’t at all worth the money in my opinion.
The food was very good. This was me and my girlfriend's second time there and the service was perfect the first time. Due to this being valentine's day, the service was a bit slow, but they acknowledged and apologized for it.
Friendly, attentive service and tasty food! Our group felt well taken care of. I hope to come back again soon!
They ran out of two things we ordered. The food took a long time to come because a big group was ahead of us. They offered a free dessert to make up for the wait. They were really nice so we will probably go back
I was really excited to try a new plant-based restaurant in town. We were given a lackluster greeting from a less/than-energetic server/hostess. The meal I wanted wasn’t available for some reason. The food took 35 min to arrive after we ordered and we received no updates along the way. The food itself did not seem to be prepared from scratch, rather it appeared to have been bought at Costco and reheated. I may try again just in case this was an anomaly.
Among the best vegan food I have ever had. I was not at all disappointed with anything I ate. The staff was very friendly.
They have such a great menu (and specials!), it was hard to choose, so my friend and I picked several items and shared them all. Everything was fantastic. And we couldn’t pass on dessert - so fantastic. I can’t wait to go back!!
Really cute place to have lunch. Ordered 4 different things and all were pleased. Delicious food.
My daughter and I had a great time! She is vegetarian, I am not. We both had delicious meals and she was even treated to a slice of cake for her Birthday!🎉 I am a coffee lover and my coffee was a bit colder then what I like. Other then that it was overall wonderful and we will definitely be back!
Party of eight people. Two of the party were vegetarian and were delighted to have so many options. Being a card carrying member of the Red Meat club, I was surprised how much I enjoyed my meal. While the meat substitute lacked the texture of meat (BBQ Rib), the flavor was convincing. Everyone in the party enjoyed the meals they ordered. Our server was great. She was attentive and patient with our party. Noise levels weren't bad (I'm deaf in one ear so I really suffer in noisy restaurants) even with all of the hard surfaces in the dining area.
Food is delicious - I had the cheeseburger and fries - terrific!! Very Friendly service. You wouldn't have known they were only open for 3 months -great options -
I’ve heard about Trio-plant- based restaurant from others but hadn’t gotten around to visit. After my visit I would recommend it to anyone. The food was delicious, waitress was friendly and attentive. The prices were reasonable. I’ll most definitely visit again.
Delicious vegan foods available at a reasonable price with none of the pretentiousness that a lot of other places seem to have. The cornbread is a must-try!
Didn't even get to eat, as they did not hold a table for us even though we had a reservation.
The nachos and chili with cornbread I had were so so good! I docked a star because the food took a very long time to come out.
We went there not expecting much. It was very good! My husband and i cleaned our plates. Highly recommend!!
We had a great time. We ordered the soul food platter and chili with extra cornbread The chili and cornbread was our favorite. We also really enjoyed the sweet potatoes and peach cobbler. We are definitely going back to try more meals.
Fantastic plant-based food! Everything was excellent and will definitely go back.
Our waitress was amazing and the food was outstanding, too! I am thoroughly impressed. It’s one of my hobbies to try new vegan spots in the community and this is my favorite thus far. The chicken cheeze quesadilla was the best I’ve ever had, vegan or not.
Delicious vegan food. My daughter was very happy as were the non-vegans! Yummy! I wish they had wine.
Great vegan food and nice staff! Ordered the chik'n and cheeze quesadillas - delish!
I tried the usual Staples: nachos cheeseburger, BLT. These are all quite good. I’m looking forward to trying some of the more unique vegan options next time like the southern selections.
Fabulous vegan comfort food. We had chi'kn cheeze quesadillas and a BLT before going to the Jungle Theater. It was perfect.
Heard good buzz about Trio and was pleasantly surprised. We didn't have their signature ribs but plan on returning to try that. Food was very tasty and came out fast. Chili was hot (temp) and nicely spiced, nachos were filling but kinda lukewarm. I think it's a good lunch spot or for a quick bite on the go; it lacks the ambiance for dinner spot (too bright lighting and not cozy enough) But glad it's in the neighborhood and intend to return soon
Excellent new vegan comfort food haven. Once they get the bar up and running next year, it will be on my regular list.
Friendly service and a great casual lunch or dinner spot for vegans and vegetarians. It was a treat to have an entire menu full of plant-based comfort food basics. Love that they feature many local Herbivorous Butcher products.
