Made a reservation for 6 a month in advance and they DO NOT TAKE OPEN TABLE RESERVATIONS Y'ALL! As soon as I said HELLO I made a reservation with Open- the gal cut me off and said they only take Yelp reservations. RUDE. This already put a bad taste in my mouth.

I would think this place is better for brunch. Like another review said, there were ALSO three Bach parties going on. No thanks.

They said they no longer take open table reservations. Never received a notification of the change but still received the open table reminders. Luckily we only had to wait 15 minutes for a table but it was not special for our guest of honor.

THREE bridal or bachelorette parties going on!!! Tables of drunk women really put a damper on our experience. Maybe straying away on weekends is the solution as it’s just out of control !

This restaurant was the only place in Palm Springs that offered great service and had decent food. The waiter went above and beyond to take care of a group of 6 women. The atmosphere was fun because they played music but it wasn't too loud. So it was perfect for chatting within the group.

The hosts were unnecessarily rude and we found a hair in our food. When we called to make the reservation the call was abruptly ended without any of our questions answered. We ultimately canceled our order and left.

We love Trio. The food and service is always top notch. Summer (manager on duty) did the right thing when we ordered something they were out of. We specifically went to Trio for Wine Wednesday and they did not have the only sparkling wine option chilled. Summer sent us 2 glasses (on the house) of another sparkling wine until the one for Wine Wednesday was chilled. Great job!

I, We, Family and extended family have been to TRIO many times
But never for this special occasion
We celebrated Fathers Day for we are two Dad's, with are youngest daughter, her significant other and youngest son. Are two oldest, son and daughter out of town call/face time during meal which made the day even more special.
I highly recommend for any event or just a Date day-night out
For the simple pleasures in life mean the most when with the ones you love
Thank you TRIO

It was nice that the restaurant team left birthday confetti on the table and provided a birthday cupcake- thank you!

I tried the Chicken Parmesan sandwich that came with French Fries. Unfortunately, the sandwich was mediocre. Something in the breading tasted off - not sure if it was the cooking oil it was fried in? There was also no enough marinara sauce on the sandwich.

My husband has the Cobb Salad and said it was okay; while my mom had the Curry Chicken Salad, which was also okay.

Overall, it was an okay lunch experience. We have eaten here in the past and will come again to see if today was an off-day for food.

Slow service and an aloof waiter really put a damper on our special occasion. We travel from Alabama a few times a year to Palm Springs.
The table behind us asked about specials. The waiter pointed to the special on the menu and as he turned away, said, “the rest is really self-explanatory”. I was floored and disappointed this visit.

Visiting from out of town found this little gem on Open Table. The owner was so kind and welcoming. The aroma of garlic welcomes you as you walk inside. Food was fresh and delicious. They made a perfect dirty martini. Excellent wine selection. Everybody enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent. Very accommodating with excellent recommendations. Will definitely go back on my next visit to Cathedral City.

We have been to Trio many times, but, unfortunately, this time wasn't the best experience. We chose their restaurant week menu, and the food was very good. The service this time was disappointing. Our waiter spent much time sitting and talking with another customer. Water glasses were never refilled. They did not bring bread, although everyone else around us did receive bread. The time between the appetizers and entrees was excessive.

After reading another review about the noise volume inside, we chose to dine outside. I don't know if that's why we seemed to be forgotten about or not. We received our first and second courses fairly promptly, but finally got up and found the manager to close our tab after waiting 20 to 30 minutes for dessert. Of course it was coming out as we were paying our bill, but wasn't even what we ordered. I don't think it should take that long to dish out sorbet and bread pudding. The manager made it right, which is why I am not giving a lower rating. The ocean trout was delicious. The pork chop was way overcooked. I almost had to stand up to get enough leverage to cut it. We had heard good things about this restaurant, so obviously were disappointed.

We had a lovely time here to Palm Springs restaurant week. The food was delicious. The service attentive The ambience more casual Than expected but in Palm Springs wearing shorts and baseball hats during dinner is fine anywhere. Gotta love it as it does no good to hate it. Ha. Favorites was the bacon wrapped dates and bone in ribeye which was cooked to MedRare PERFECTION. Highly recommend a visit here.

It was 10pm. Our reservation was at 9:30. When I asked when we would be seated, the hostess rudely asked, "do you see any open tables?"

Brought us food that was undercooked or burned.

Brought us dessert that was melted.

Asked for change. They didn't have it.

Food and service were very good, with the exception of the hostess staff. I made the reservation on Open Table at 9:30AM the day of dining. I called at 12:03PM and left a detailed message requesting an increase in my party from 4 to 6 persons. I asked them to call me if there was a problem with this and heard nothing back. Upon arrival, the hostess said rudely that she had not gotten any message and the increased party could not be accommodated. Therefore, 2 of my friends ended up dining at the bar. Very disappointing.
