The food is always fantastic, its a classy place, not too noisy. They have a lot of alcohol choices. There manager Sam and the bar tenders Carlos and Kevin always have great food and wine recommendations. I love this place. If you have not been, go! If you want some advice get a seat in the bar area (there are high tops there too) and ask for opinions.

My server was amazing. I don't know the gentleman but I wish him the best. He was excellent. He was a Caucasian gentleman with a beard who has two children.

He was super nice and our meals were great. Also were greeted by the manager. My wife and I will come back soon!

Loved sitting outside, the waitress was just perfect, friendly and professional - not in your face, asking “how the food tastes” while you have food in your mouth, which makes all the difference.

We had coquito, Mule mocktail, scotch, beer, vino verder, gnocchi, mussels, shrimp and grits, NY strip, halibut, expresso chocolate mouse and courtesy chocolate cupcake. Mostly all outstanding, just wish the halibut and its pew wee potatoes had a little bit more seasoning. But still, overall a wonderful experience.

Trio was ok. The ambience is nice, but it is very difficult to find parking (and I personally don’t like to valet my car). The service was good but it was hard to hear or understand our waiter at times. The food, disappointingly, was just average. None of the dishes really blew me away except the PEI mussels appetizer. We ordered the gnocchi, the salads, the bbq pork tenderloin, the halibut, the Atlantic salmon, and the ribeye. Everything was just okay. We also had the NY cheesecake, the espresso mousse, and the strawberry shortcake for dessert—all of which were also average.

Overall, based on the ratings, I was really expecting this place to blow me away, but in a city with so many food options and new American restaurants, I don’t think I would return to Trio.

Super crowded and noisy. Slow ticket times. Several people waiting on us so it was confusing, I kept getting berated if I wanted another glass of wine because no one took my empty glass away. The dry aged ribeye was sold out and they were pushing a “cowboy” wet aged ribeye for more $$. Loud baby crying. I couldn’t hear anything or carry on a conversation with my friends.

From walking in the door to leaving with our boxed up leftovers, the service from every staff member was impeccable. Not to mention the food was spectacular and the ambiance was upscale relaxing. My husband and I were thrilled with our experience and definitely have a new "dinner without kids" restaurant. So happy to have a go to date night place that makes us feel pampered and fully satiated!

It’s rare to find a restaurant in DC metro where there are personal touches at every turn. We were well attended to by every staff person from the host and porters to the waiter and managers. Everyone was personable and engaging and were interested in making our celebration meal special.
The menu is innovative with a good variety of food for all palates. All the food at our table was delicious and beautifully presented. The meal was well paced and we ended the evening sitting in the cigar lounge for another round of drinks with cigars. We never felt rushed to finish or leave.

This is a great restaurant and I highly recommend it. My only complaints:
1) that the vegetables were not all fresh. With my dinner I had a mix of vegetables and I believe the beans were not fresh enough to serve. Other than that it was great. Oh yes, one more thing.
2) I asked for extra whip cream for the Keylime pie and the waiter pointed out to me that there was extra whipped cream on it when there was not, there was nothing extra on it, there was just the normal amount of merangue. But then when I pointed it out to him, he brought the whip cream.

This is a hard. First the positives, appetizers were good, wine very good, service was excellent. But I have to say mine and my wife steaks were two of the worst we have ever eaten. This was in spite of sending them back. Both were improperly cooked (twice) and the rib eye looked like it had been purchased on sale at a nearby supermarket. In addition the steaks were grossly over salted. To his credit the manager did try to correct the problem and did not charge us for them. So while I would not say not to go, I can not say I would recommend it either. We might go back for drinks and appetizers first.

We had a great meal for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We sat outside on their outdoor patio and it was great, nice and quiet out there despite it being full. The service was excellent and each time we have eaten there the manager always makes it a point to say hello and check to make sure everything is satisfactory, which I think is a nice touch.

service was superb; food was very good but it was a bit off. Buratta salad was excellent. The gnocchi selection with ratatouille was delicious but the gnocchi were over cooked and a bit soggy. My guest ordered the eared tuna and said it was very good. I had that the last time I was here and I too found it excellent. This time I ordered a steak med rare. It came out med and somewhat tough. It was a rather thin cut for the weight as advertised on the menu and the flavor was not as good as it usually is here. Desert, ice cream and key lime pie were worth the calories.

I would recommend TRIO, but with the caveat that it is a bit loud with the hardwood floors, "hard finish" to the walls and sound reflective ceilings (and often a piano playing near the bar area). Otherwise a good choice.

Went here for a friend's birthday dinner. We ordered the burrata to share and both ended up getting the halibut. The burrata was one of the best I ever had and I had to force myself to leave some of the entree to take home to my husband. The piano was delightful and the seats were oh-so-comfortable, I can't wait to go back to this restaurant!
