It was our first time. We were looking forward to trying something new. We were seated at a good table. However within minutes it smelled of cigar smoke which we didn’t find appetizing. Turns out there’s a cigar room adjacent to the dining room. Every time they open the door it pours in. We moved further away but could still smell it. If you love the scent you’re in business. The food was very good and our server was very attentive. Not sure if we will go back due to the cigar odor.

We have been to Trio several times, and this was by far, the least positive experience we've had. It took much longer than it should have to serve our appetizers, due to some misunderstanding in the kitchen. Our waiter was pleasant but not extremely attentive. Although he might have been busy with other tables, we felt a bit ignored. We had to ask one or two other servers to assist in getting our drinks, food, etc. Our waiter eventually apologized, but he should have kept us informed as to what was going on and why it was taking so long rather than leaving us to wonder. He did not.

The food was good as it usually is, but apparent to my husband and I that there have been changes to the management and kitchen...

Tried the new summer menu. Crab cakes were delicious but disappointed in the dry halibut. Service was very good.

6 close friends celebrated a birthday at Trio, enjoying sitting on the open covered patio. Our server was outstanding, pacing our meal well and making good recommendations.
We enjoyed a round of oysters, shared kale and beet salads were tasty and not over dressed. The scallops, rockfish and pork chops were all well prepared and no one had a morsel left on their plate. We also shared key lime pie and Black Forest cake, while both were good the key lime was the biggest hit.
We had a most enjoyable evening with excellent attentive service. Thank you.

Great food and great service. Eggplant is delicious and so is the salmon. They have a private room for big parties which we used when we were a group of about 12! It was very nice! Everyone enjoyed it.

First time to Trio. First positive was that they had valet because there was no parking. The service was excellent, very attentive but not overboard. Great recommendations on the wine and meal. I got the tuna (delicious) and my husband got the short rib (fall off the bone). We also ordered the shrimp potstickers which were very tasty. For dessert, we shared the strawberry shortcake, another very good item! We were so impressed by service and food, we let the manager know.

I would definitely go back. We've already recommended it to friends!

Overall good but they can make it more lively with some music, not only on Fridays.
Something has to be done about the flies in the summer.

The waiter who served us knowledgeable about the food they offer and can even suggest something better (not on the menu but similar and to you personal liking). However, I cannot remember his name.

The manager comes to you a few times to check on how you are enjoying the meals.


Everything else is good, I recommend it

The food and drink are always good, and the menus for both change periodically, so there is always the familiar and something new. The service is exceptionally accommodating, particularly if you have any allergies or special wishes. It's a pleasure to be able to enjoy fine dining in a quiet atmosphere where you don't have to shout to be heard by your dinner companions.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Started with delicious raw oysters (choice of 4 different types). Then we all tried something different and all agreed the food was outstanding -- from filet to seared tuna to scallops to short rib. Love their crusty bread, too. They finished it off with a luscious chocolate cupcake for the birthday boy. We've eaten here before and will eat here again.

Fabio took great care of us and the food was outstanding. The wedge salad was the best that I have ever had - the smokey blue cheese was amazing. I would go back just for that but the bison strip steak was perfect!

As per our many visits, Trio did not disappoint. The food was excellent, although, the soup could have been a little warmer. The eggplant was great, as was the pasta. Trio has a decent wine list with a nice selection of wines that should be able to fit most diners budget.

Great selection of appetizers (we shared 3!) and entrees and all were very good. The steaks were outstanding. They have a very serious wine list. Everyone in the front of the house was attentive and helpful but we could have used some help selecting a bottle of wine (our server could not advise on this and offered to get the bartender, whom we did not want to bother). They do provide valet parking (parking is pretty limited). Will definitely return!

Primarily I love this place for happy hour as it's a great value, the cocktails are good, and the food specials are great. Recently we went there for dinner and I was happily surprised how good the meal was! Appetizers were perfect and the entrees were just as good. The ambiance is excellent too. I would love to come back when it's a bit warmer to try dinner on the patio.

I had the shrimp and ginger appetizer and the seared tuna and my wife had the cauliflower appetizer and the chicken with chicken sausage. The food was excellent. The pour on the wine (Sancerre) could/should have been more generous. The key lime pie was rich and smooth. The room is pleasant and the seats very comfortable. The service was initially excruciatingly slow even while gracious in manner but the waiter and manager were very appropriate in apologies. It was our first visit. We would be happy to come again.
