We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Trio. The tuna nacho appetizer and the special tomato bisque soup were both quite tasty. The kitchen kindly split the kale salad for 2 and it was perfect. The cracker coated flounder & potatoes was among the best flounder dish I have enjoyed in a long time! Our servers were accommodating & on target with suggestions & delivery of our meal. Looking forward to our next visit.

We went to TRIO for dinner this past Friday to celebrate my husbands birthday. I checked reviews it looked great so I made a reservation. Food was okay, not great I got scallops which were literally 4 scallops with a spoonful of butternut squash puree. (wouldnt recommend that) . I felt the portion was small .My husband got a dry aged ribeye ( the most expensive steak in the menu btw) . He said it tasted great and it was cooked perfectly but it was chewy. It was taking him so long to chew it that he couldnt finish it. It wasnt tender.
After all, it wasnt bad ,however,I dont think we would go back. I would expect the food and portions to be better for the price.
Also, I asked if they could bring a dessert with a candle since It was my husbands birthday and they forgot to bring it.

I have lived in the area and never realized we had such a nice restaurant nearby. I went for a business dinner and the atmosphere was very conducive to our discussion; we were fortunate to have a booth. Our entrees were short rib (singular but sufficient), pasta pomodoro, and halibut; all were excellent. The key lime pie with coconut crust was fine... a little sweet but worth sharing. I would definitely return again.

Food was delicious. The table reserved for our party was perfect to accommodate a little one. She was able to walk around a little and not disturb others. Most of all the staff was amazing. Our waiter Fabio was the best waiter I’ve ever had. He was very professional, made recommendations and yet was so very friendly. We were celebrating my husband retirement and celebrating at Trio made it extra special. Our entire party agreed the dining experience was top notch! Thank you!

The moment we walked in to Trio, we warmly greeted by the staff. It was our anniversary and the manager brought us a bottle of Cava to celebrate. The oysters were fresh and delicious. The Iceberg bacon salad was divine. My husband had the bison and I had the bolognese. Both spectacular. And for dessert, we split the key lime pie and the molten chocolate cake. We were impressed by the wine list and the recommendation given was wonderful. A lovely evening, a lovely restaurant!

We were meeting friends from out-of-town and had never been to the Trio Grill before. What a great surprise it was, as the ambiance, service and food were absolutely first class. This is an outstanding restaurant made even better and more enjoyable because of our server, Favio Chavez, who was professional, efficient, fun and enjoyable as he took excellent care of us. He knew the extensive menu and wine list very well, and made excellent recommendations... We cannot say enough about our outstanding experience at this restaurant. We will return here many times...

The service was rushed. They cleared our plates and brought our food so fast that we were done in less than an hour. We told one server we were not quite done, only to have another immediately follow and just take our plates. This made it feel like a restaurant not worthy of the prices they charged. The food was good, but this experience was not up to the over $300 bill we had for our party of 4.

Trio Grill was FANTASTIC! The Burrata with Squash was beyond delicious for an appetizer. We had the Halibut and Salmon which were cooked to perfection. The have beautiful bar area. We decided to eat at the bar instead of at a table. It was so spacious and nice. The bartender was so nice and friendly. Our main dish took a little longer than expected which we didn’t even mind but the bartender gave us a complimentary potato type soup just because. It was an overall positive experience. The noise level is definitely pretty energetic but it was quieter at the bar. Will definitely be back!

Great food, great martinis. But like most all DC-area restaurants, "must speak with raised voice" and somewhat understaffed. Our server was great but overworked on a Saturday night. Not his fault. I'll certainly return, but likely on a weeknight.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary. This was the first time we dined at this restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice and cozy. Chairs were a little uncomfortable and seemed a little odd for a restaurant. The food was great but a little pricey. Our waiter (Favio) was superb and did a great job informing us of the specials along with recommendations for other choices. It took longer than expected to receive our main course but was worth the wait. Overall, we had a nice time.

We came as a group of seven and the service was great. They kept an eye on water glasses and wine glasses. The food was quite good and well prepared. Definitely an Italian style, but many non-Italian dishes as well. They have a nice selection of wines at pretty reasonable prices for a restaurant.

We ordered tuna nachos which were great. We ordered 3 dry aged ribeyes which were all fatty and hard to eat (ordered medium and medium rare). The bolognese was good. Wine list was pricier than necessary; restaurants are getting creative with their sourcing for quality at the right price and this list was traditional. The apple dumpling dessert was the highlight. Ambiance could be so much better with different upholstery; the exposed brick, etc offered potential. Best to sit at bar for the bar ambiance and happy hour prices.

One of the most outstanding restaurants I've had the pleasure of dining at. Excellent food with a 'magic' touch. Our waiter was extremely accomplished, listened to our wants and questions and answered with confidence as he knew the all the dishes and their ingredients and attempted to pair them to our likes. The manager (Samuel) made the meal even more enjoyable with his visits and conscientious attention to our meal. This is our new 'Go-To' restaurant for truly exceptional 'Fine Dining'. I could not give any restaurant a higher rating.

I found the restaurant to be too noisy and the food was not that good. I had the eggplant and it was over fried, over cooked and was not good at all!
It’s on the expensive side but the quality of the food does not reflect a quality restaurant.
