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.

Great service! Very attentive and friendly wait staff. Seared ahi was one of the best I've had. Everything is fresh and presented well. Good size portions and very reasonably priced. Can get very busy, so dine early if you want a quieter environment.

When we visited it was Restaurant Week so it was very busy. In spite of that the food was great, the staff very attentive and concerned with my wife's allergies and we were not rushed at all. Great experience and restaurant

We enjoyed good service, good food with a decent menu. The restaurant was very loud. We felt it was maybe because the building was older and the acoustics probably were poor.

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.

As always, the food was very good but I was disappointed in the service we received at lunch. This has never happened before in all my trips to Trio. A bit disconcerting. I'm hoping this was just a fluke.

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.

Always plan an eve at Trio every time I visit Pam Springs. Dined on a mid-week eve when restaurant was not very busy, I have always enjoyed prompt. courteous and knowledgable servers. Off to a bad beginning waiting a very long time for cocktails. Not a server in sight - so unusual for this restaurant so will just consider it a one time thing and certainly go back as it is a favorite place to dine and drink.

Waitress was not the most welcoming. The busboys were the most attentive and made sure we were ok. We split water and they made sure to make everything right and came back to make sure we ok. Food took long but was good. Close to 35 min wait for it to arrive. I am so sorry but the first thing to do is to make sure your guest feel welcomed and let them know they are being taken care of and this waitress lacked this. Made us feel like she was doing us a favor. Too bad because place is really nice.

The food was fine, not outstanding. The hostess set the tone for the evening and it was not positive. Probably will not return as there are so many options in the area that treat their customers better.

Started out nicely as they left little happy birthday decorations on our table. Oddly, the waiter who was very nice, never said happy birthday or otherwise acknowledged that it was a special occasion. 15 minutes into dinner I got an email saying that open table shows that I had not checked in which obviously I had. Started with the fried artichoke which was average and served with tartar sauce which wasn’t the best compliment. For the mains the steak salad was terrible and had an odd earthy taste. The steak itself was not seared on the outside and over done on the inside. Also way overdressed. The trout was decent as were the other items. The mediocrity of the main courses made us decide to skip dessert and then wait a really long time to get the bill and pay. On the way out I told the hostess about the issue with OpenTable and she said “OK I fixed it” without an apology or other acknowledgment that it was their mistake. I’ll be looking for another place to dine next time I’m in Palm Springs.

service was uneven, waiter seemed overwhelmed
calamari was cold and soggy, not freshly prepared
meatloaf had a terrible flavor, poor quality, not juicy probably due to over mixing in the preparation.
The coffee was tasteless
Over air conditioned , noise level was so raucous as to make each one of us inaudible. Tables way too close to each other!
