The natural woods and stone, wood-burning fireplaces, art and accessories all depict Tria's commitment to creating a delightful dining experience for their guests, offering something for everyone.

Tria Restaurant, Bar & Event Center Ratings and Reviews
We visited the Parisian Brunch. Lovely music from a quartet. A couple of specials but mainly the brunch menu available. Love the poutine and chicken with waffles. Love the beignets and mimosas. The calamari are the best ever. Miss the Chicken Francaise and hope it returns. Always a good time. Hope they would be open for lunch - so few good places in the area.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is gorgeous with large wooden beams set in a classic style, two fireplaces lit, artsy stone walls and comfortable seating with enough space to hold private conversation. They have a great patio for summer dining. The menu has a great selection of meals from casual and light to hearty, and full courses to meet any taste. This is great for special occasions as they offer wine or champagne on birthdays and anniversaries. Wait staff are attentive and efficient without being overly present. Great dining!
Visited Tria once again for my birthday dinner with my wife and two friends. It is hard to pass up that complimentary wine! We started with my favorite appetizer -- grilled octopus. the octopus is cooked just exactly right, and the relish with chorizo is a very interesting enhancement. I had the halibut. It was as tender as you would expect, and the beurre blanc and almond crust are very complimentary. The green beans almandine left a little to be desired though. All-in-all, it is a light dish with nuances. Spouse had the seared scallops, which were again not over-cooked (a common sin). her accompaniment (corn, tomatoes, chorizo and arugula pistou) was divine. One friend had the small filet and liked it. The other had the chicken marsala, which is consistently excellent. Service was prompt and attentive.
I gave a fantastic review on all counts -- this restaurant rocks! But nonetheless, have to say how disappointed I was that there was no mushroom risotto. Truth be told, that's why I came, all the way from Colorado. Will not come again because of the mushroom risotto disappointment...but that's just me.
The server was outstanding - courteous, paced us and responded to our needs without being over bearing. We were happy to be in the back of the restaurant near the fireplace. It was relaxing and quiet compared to the bricked side room where the acoustics are awful and you can't hear yourself speak. It was my birthday and the dinner was indeed special! Thanks to our server for her perceptive skills sensing that we didn't want to be rushed. She was fabulous!
We made a reservation for my birthday. Since it was Halloween, we wanted to eat earlier than the 5:00 dining room opening. We ate in the bar, with a limited menu. The waiter acted a bit impatient with our questions about what we could and couldn't order to get our "free" bottle of wine. The $64 dollar bottle of wine retails for about $20. You are expected to tip on the $64. Not really much of a savings. I was also brought a "free" dessert that I did not request and that was also supposed to be included in the tip calculation.
Tria is located in a lovely spot and the environment is beautiful. Our service was quite good and we were excited to try the food. We had the duck and halibut and they were okay but not great. It tasted like the halibut may have been frozen. If we're going to spend that much on a meal, my expectations are higher than just "okay". We've heard the brunch is great so we may go back to give it a try.
Our second time visiting Tria. We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday and enjoy restaurant week. Our waiter appeared to be disappointed that we were only doing the restaurant week menu and when we asked about the birthday desert he said no, you're already getting a desert with the restaurant week menu. A lady was celebrating her lady behind us and when she received her desert she had a candle in it. We did not receive this (same waiter). My spouses lamb was chewy so it was sent back and he ordered the duck. It took over 1/2 hour to receive the duck and I was long done with my entree. I ordered the filet which was dry but I ate it anyways since I didn't want to experience what my husband did.
Once again Tria has given my husband and I a wonderful night out. Our food was great. I especially loved the Scotch Eggs. It was a specialty that night. Really would like to see it on the breakfast menu. I would have it every time! I had the duck with vegetables. It was good. Ended my meal with a Lemon Panna Cotta. Very nice and light.
It was a great dining experience, but we did not have good directions off the website. GPS instructions brought us to within a couple of miles but since we were not familiar with the area it was difficult to find. Tria should check the directions from their website to be sure patrons can find them more easily.
My husband and I like to stop in at the bar from time to time. We weren't terribly impressed with the dining experience in the main dining room several years back but decided to try it again for my birthday. No change. It was all fine, and forgettable. We fine dine a lot and there are many other restaurants we would rather have spent that amount of money on. We'll stick with a random stop for a drink and app at that bar.
