Have always enjoyed Trio's. Food is consistently good, and their social distancing measures are much appreciated.

Overall this restaurant delivered what it offered. The food was good even though my rib-eye was not what I ordered and the waiter kindly agreed and took it back. Food was good and the price for our meal was good also. Service was good.

Other than choosing the wrong dish this time, I love this place. The ambience and service was great, and the menu had a wonderfully wide variety of choices. I just made a mistake in ordering a small pizza, which I had never done before. Even though they consider it thin crust, it was not what I would consider thin, and it was doughy and undercooked. But the other three meals at the table were loved by all. Just don't order the pizza!

Excellent service. Southwestern Salmon Salad and pizza. Cream Brûlée for dessert. Yummy. All staff were professional. They were all working hard to be sure all guidelines were being following. Numerous take-out orders were being picked-up. Keep supporting this local treasure!

Trio is our go to for birthday dinners and other celebrations. The food and service is always perfect. The space is well lit, not loud, and just comfortable to be in. This was the first time we sat outside (the back porch is enclosed and screened). It could use a little work, but it was a great fit for our family dinner.

The food was quite good but the atmosphere was outdated with loud 80s music playing. We probably won’t dine there again.

Very nice! Food was delicious.

Since there were 5 of us wish we were seated at table
Rather than booth!

But that did not impact anything except I’m fat and was uncomfortable...


Waiter was great!

This Charlotte staple is now in a very competitive market and needs to up its game. I should say our server was top notch! We asked for patio by reservation and were not told the patio was closed in. The tables were oddly distributed. I am a professional event and meeting planner and it was obvious that though an effort was made, the management does not understand the rules of distancing tables and chairs. This information is readily available.
My steak, which was reasonably priced, was paper thin and grilled to shoe leather. I ordered medium. They replaced it quickly and perfectly grilled. The salad was good and the blue cheese dressing outstanding. The desserts we ordered, brownie with ice cream and the exceptional almond dessert are highly recommended. Also like the nice hard roll and butter brought with our salads.
I would go back but try another entree next time.

Perfect lunch and has been for many years. Totally CDC compliant. Felt safe and protected while at same time received excellent service and food. Never fails. You can see the smiles on the servers mask-protected faces by looking at their eyes. A happy place. It is only one of 2 restaurants we frequent during the Covid-19 crisis. Everybody else falls short of Trio.

Place is still in the ‘80’s as far as decor. Food was good. They like to use sweet sauce on a lot of dishes. Plenty of food. Overall good experience.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant with excellent service. We have not been to Trios since the Covid shutdown. The service was excellent and social distancing fine with masks on servers. But the Chef must have changed because the Shrimp and Grits is not the same. This dish was too spicy. It was like biting into a Habanero pepper. My mouth was on fire. I scraped off the sauce and tried to eat it but I could not not. There was nothing on the plate that was not heavily spiced. I was so disappointed. They did take the charge for the meal off of our bill. I hope the Chef changes the dish or there should be a warning of the heavy hot spice to the shrimp and grits. The meatloaf also had a spicy sauce on it but not as much as the shrimp and grits.
