Trio Grill was wonderful as always. We met friends there, and we all had a lovely evening together thanks to the service, food, and ambiance of this restaurant. Thanks again! Highly recommend Trio Grill.

I hosted a business group of my Partners and their spouses on a recent Saturday evening - Rees and the entire TRIO staff were professional, efficient and knowledgeable, The food and cocktails were awesome, the private room very chic and comfortable and together, it was a memorable evening. Recommended!

I would like to relate our less-than-stellar experience at Trio Grill this last weekend. We came tonight to celebrate my wife’s promotion at work. We were out for a nice evening with our teenage daughter. We ordered drinks - they were fine. My wife had the short ribs and said they were OK, but for the price should have been fantastic. A little dry and very small portion for a very healthy price. She ordered extra sauce on the side, and of course, the dish came with no sauce on the meal but a thimble of sauce on the side. She ordered sauce twice more before she got enough to eat her meal. The daughter and I shared the night’s special, a 36 ounce tomahawk steak, medium rare. I think the restaurant was very generous calling it 36 ounces. Once the bone was removed we were lucky if the steak was 16 ounces. For a price of $85, I feel cheated and unsatisfied. Very disappointing. I don't know if we'll go back again, but I don’t have the same enthusiasm for the establishment that I once did.

Our group enjoyed a nice evening dining on the covered patio with easy conversation. We had a wonderful server who was well versed in making recommendations. She paced our meal well.
We enjoyed a chopped salad easily shared by 2 and the shrimp potstickers. The raw oysters were also excellent and a delightful way to begin our meal.
For entrees, we enjoyed the scallops, filet mignon and the crab cakes. Each entree was very well prepared, cooked to perfection and quite delicious.
We then shared the key lime pie for dessert, excellent balance between sweetness and tartness, a great end to a great meal. Thank you, Trio and staff

Overall a great experience. The service was great and the food was excellent. We had oysters, steak, and wine.

It was all really good. My only reasons for not giving five stars is my steak (ribeye) was considerably smaller than my friend’s ribeye.

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.

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.

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.
