This was my first time visiting, so I need to give this another visit.
We were sat in a small side room, at a folding card table. The room was comfortable, but halfway through our meal, one waitress went to the thermostat and CRANKED the heat at the request of one guest seated right inside the door. Other people were sitting comfortably, some even in short sleeves. It was certainly not chilly. But it quickly become unbearably warm.
The crab cake appetizer was decent. I've had better quality crab, but this certainly wasn't bad. The scallop appetizer was severely undercooked. I am well aware that scallops should be rare/raw in the center. This was pretty much raw throughout to the point that it stretched in "strings" as I tried to cut it.
My wife ordered a pork chop with an apple compote topping. I thought it was delicious, but the apple compote was ICE cold (not even room temp). Very strange on top of a perfectly cooked pork chop.
I ordered a steak with potatoes and cipollini onions. I ordered it mainly because I LOVE cipollinis and don't see them often on a menu. I got a perfectly cooked steak with cocktail onions and baby potatoes.
Neither my wife nor I received anything but a butter knife to cut the pork chop and the steak. (The steak was pre-sliced, but the slices were rather large.) Cutting meat with a butter knife on a folding card table made a mess of the drinks.
The apple crisp was unique. I loved the spices, but my wife wasn't crazy about it. Either way, it was well made.
The creme brûlée was tasty, but one side had a VERY thick layer of caramelized sugar that I couldn't crack with the spoon. The other side had no sugar at all.
Lastly, the service was excellent. The waitress was perfect in every way. Attentive, asked before removing anything from the table, really timed her "visits" perfectly. I couldn't ask for anything better in service.
All in all, I need to go back. Maybe the kitchen was off their game the night I went.

Our waitress, Nadine, was excellent & explained meal options well. We had a very comfortable pace for our Valentine dinner. We had Steak Diane that was very tender & all the meal was exemplary! Enjoyed sitting a couple feet from the wood burning fireplace so stayed nice & toasty warm!! :)

Outstanding service. The food was incredible. Best scallops I’ve ever had. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday, and they went above and beyond to make it special. We look forward to going back.

My boyfriend and I went to Tria as a Christmas date. Although the crowd was mainly older, we didn’t feel too out of place. The ambience was pleasant and romantic. The food offerings were also a nice surprise (picky eaters should be able to find something they like). We went primarily because of the seafood options (boyfriend got the crab cakes and mentioned that they were very good). Overall, we both loved our experience and wouldn’t mind returning in the summer to try dining outside on their patio.

It’s been a few years since we’d been to Tria, and a kid free movie date provided us with an excellent opportunity.

They have really stepped up the menu! Better ingredients, more sophisticated tastes... they really raised their game! Had we known, we would have probably just made the date the entire meal!

What a gem in the northeast burbs! Can’t wait to go back!

The ambiance was very nice. Dim lite, quiet. The food was spectacular. We even requested a couple of menu modifications and that was no problem. Our server was prompt, friendly and efficient. It was our anniversary so she added desert ant champagne as well. Will definitely return.

We enjoyed our Sunday evening dinner, but noted some things that did not meet our anticipations from previous dinners there. The bread basket contained only bread, not any of the seeded crackers we have enjoyed in the past, and the mixed greens salad did not have the sliced fennel described in the menu (which has happened on some other occasions). We noted some changes to the menu, which is to be expected, but my husband and I found the changes to the scallop entree from cous-cous to risotto to be less appealing upon trying it. Also found out the Apple Cinnamon Cobbler we’d planned on for dessert was not available, because they do not serve it on Sundays due to the morning brunch. Will definitely go back, but will probably avoid Sunday evenings.

We wanted a place for family to gather to honor my Mom who passed away last fall and whose birthday we were celebrating. We were a party of 7.
The restaurant was easy to find and very gorgeous. Just a fun place to walk into. The atmosphere was friendly and cozy. Everyone was satisfied with their meal from appetizer to dessert. We will definitely be returning!

Very high quality cuisine, although I think the chef or server was off for our visit with several misses and mistakes. Usually this is a great spot with thoughtful dishes. Also, we were seated by the kitchen which is extremely noisy but the other parts of the restaurant are a little better. The patio is great when open too.

The Birthday wine offer is an excellent value. There are so many great options for food I had a tough time deciding on what to order. I picked the pot pie. It was excellent. My wife picked the evening fish special. That too was excellent. The food and drinks arrived in a timely manner. We were seated in a booth for the first time. I really liked the booth. We had a very enjoyable birthday celebration dinner. P.S. the night before we also ate a Tria. We enjoyed the bar area and the Sun all day happy hour. We ordered 3 items off the happy hour menu they were excellent.

My husband & I frequent Tria a LOT ~ last Saturday I brought my son & his girlfriend for dinner. The bar was full & restaurant had many open tables at 5:30pm I checked in with the host (who happened to be the GM) & he said he couldn't seat, they are full unless we had a reservation. We left & in the car I went on Open Table & learned there were many open reservations at 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, etc. ~ I made a reservation at 5:45pm & returned to the restaurant. The Host said Open Table is wrong & after much discussion he sat us (by the kitchen but at least we got a table). We love the Tria & were disappointed during this visit.

The food here is excellent. We started with the crab cake and it was so creamy and filled with bright delicious crab... tasted like there were no bread crumbs for filler - lovely. I ordered the ribeye - delicious and my husband got the scallops - also delicious. We each tried a veggie side: corn succotash and roasted Brussels sprouts - both sides were exceptional. We thought the scallops were overpriced - $28 for 3 not huge normal-sized scallops - wow. Thought for that size & price there should have been 5 or 6. Startlingly small portion for the price. Our waiter was nice & professional. We were seated at a table off in the corner so we could not enjoy the views or fireplace, etc. also, as we were finishing up, a group was seated near us that had moved from the bar area - they were so loud it hurt our ears - we hurried to pay the bill and leave. Overall, we’re glad we tried it and it was a nice place to celebrate my birthday!!

Really nicely plated Sunday Brunch. The food was very good, portions not very big. Lovely, quiet dining room. My one complaint was the surcharge that was added on the bill to supplement employee costs. I am all for tipping for good service, and I do. But I am losing respect for restaurants that cannot manage their own costs and wind up adding yet another charge on to the bill to cover them. It just appears to be another way to nickel and dime your customers.
