Very friendly staff and excellent service. Food is quite good - their Caesar salad is one of the best we’ve ever had! A little pricey but they go above and beyond to make your dinner very enjoyable. Highly recommend!

King Street Trio is and will most likely stay on my Top list for places to eat in Waterloo. From the top tier service from the staff to the wonderful host who makes you feel at home from the moment you enter the door. Oh, and the food is kind of awesome too. Keep up the great work and see you again very soon!

Love the place!!! Great food, great service and great atmosphere.

We two couples went there on Friday night...We had calamari and crab cake for appetizer. Calamari was fresh and tender! Love it. We tried oyster and it’s not bad...We had lamb and duck meat for our main course. Highly recommend both of them. Lamb and duck meat were well cooked (medium rare for duck meat?)....tasted juicy and delicate. As for dessert, we had the cheesecake and it was amazing!!!

Its about 50-ish per person. Yup we highly recommend the place...good for a date or any special event....will definitely go visit the restaurant a second time! !

Dined here on a Tuesday night. The food was very good. The presentation was nice and most of the dishes had a pleasant flavour. Some parts of the meal were over/under salted. Tortellini appetizer was very nice except for the fact that the tortellini shells were slightly under cooked. Overall we had a wonderful dinner and a lovely experience. There is a discount when you dine on Monday-Wed, which is a bonus! Would come back again and recommend to others :)

My wife and I always enjoy dining at King Street Trio. There is great ambiance, the chefs know what they are doing and do it with verve, and the food is delicious. Price-wise it is on par with other similar upscale eateries, but none have the convenient location of being in uptown Waterloo, just a few minutes walk from the Princess Cinemas, so making for a nice evening out.

Overall, very good. Appetizers were just OK. The main course of halibut was nicely prepared - the outside was crispy while the inside was moist. Wine section was limited. Service was great, and the restaurant very accommodating when the size of the dinner party increased.

We were there for a date. My girlfriend has dietary constraints. I made note of it when making the reservation. Everyone from the host to our server was aware and very accommodating. None of the awkward or difficult moments that can be had when asking the kitchen to exclude something from a plate. Atmosphere was perfect for a nice relaxed meal with a bottle of wine and a private conversation. I would definately go back for another date night soon.

The owner and waiter were super friendly and made sure to stop in and answer all of our questions. We took our 2 kids out for their graduation and they were treated very well. We had oysters, brie cheese, crab cakes and risotto balls for appetizers. The Steak and lamb were just perfect!
The only down side to this restaurant were the people coming in in tshirts and track pants. We specifically took the kids to an upscale restaurant so they could wear their nice grad outfits and we looked out of place. Maybe fine dining has gone by the wayside...but the food and service was incredible.
The owner Brian was lovely.
