Bad initial impression with no parking. Had to walk from a dental office lot and through a gas station. Should be a valet for off site parking. Not a great location. Nice interior. Greeted on arrival. Some different menu items but not outstanding dishes served somewhat plainly and should have been accompanied by a small side. Water service excellent. Checked on by manager. Nice outdoor area but basically sitting in the parking lot with no screen or buffer. Overall underwhelming and will not return or recommend. Was looking for an alternative to Tysons. For the money there are better options.

The food, ambiance, and service were what one would expect for a very high priced dinner. The maitre'd came over at least 3 times during our meal to ask how our dinner was going, making it clear their guests are important to them. HOWEVER, it did not inform me in advance that there was an extremely high probability that when I entered the restaurant parking lot I would then have to take down an address from a placard in front of the restaurant, drive around the block for about ½ mile in order to park 2 blocks away in a crowded and dusty parking lot, cross a busy street, and risk being late for my reservation. Not exactly a great start to the evening. I felt sorry for the hostess, who was having to be nice to an upset customer who'd beat us out of that parking lot to make it in time for his reservation. Perhaps the restaurant had valet parking pre-COVID and has stopped providing it for the duration. Nonetheless, it absolutely needs to advise their guests in advance about the parking situation.

With friends visiting DC and not having eaten out since March of 2020, we decided to take them to our very favorite place that we have been dreaming about returning to - Trio. My husband dropped us off at the door since there was no Valet Parking sign and went to park the car. The 3 of us sat at a great booth (as requested online) and waited a very very long time for his arrival. We then ordered fabulous cocktails, 2 shared Apps - 1 was actually the house fries with duck fat hollandaise sauce which I highly recommend as a starter! The homemade gnocchi were sadly lost among all the toppings served with them. We order salmon and scallops entrees which were good but nothing that I would rave over but my husbands boneless ribeye steak was AMAZING! Like butter. And sooooo delicious! Simply amazing. The service was fabulous and we always love eating at Trio but after finishing our meal we found ourselves having to walk across a gas station and into a closed dental office building overflow parking lot in order to reach our car - I had no idea that my husband had had to park the car so far away. Not a good look for what we consider a high priced dinner out (@$300 including tip for 4). The restaurant was full when we were eating so I don’t understand why they cannot reinstitute Valet service for their Trio restaurant and self parking for Open Road - their more informal place on the other end. We will not be returning until Valet is available again even though it is our absolutely favorite spot. We used to go there quite often just to enjoy a nice bottle of wine and apps at the bar a couple of times a month in addition to dinners out. I can’t at this time recommend Trio to my friends - even though to this day I had the best fish of my life (rockfish) there for dinner one night! Sigh. But the whole experience is diminished by the lack of adequate parking and that walk across a gas station when done with a quality meal - not the ending one expects or wants. Disappointing.

As usual it was an outstanding and memorable experience. We keep going back to Trio for special dinners and special occasions with family and friends. Every single dish is excellent, and everyone on the staff is so nice, welcoming, helpful, friendly but very professional . Trio is our go-to neighborhood restaurant for a special, fancy yet relaxed dinner.

I brought my girlfriend here tonight celebrating her birthday and the food was delicious. Service was great! The only thing I didn’t like was that our waitress forgot our bread about 3 times before we actually got it and when we did our food came out shortly after. We both had margaritas but for some reason mine was very nasty. It taste super sour and when she bought me another one, it was just about the same.

Love this place! Summer menu is amazing! Had corn soup (off menu) and it was incredible. The scallops, gnocchi and heirloom tomato salad were delicious. Chilean sea bass was good but I've had better. They have some really good wines too. Oh, and I recommend the cobbler.
