Food was good. Waiter was a bit over loaded with customers. I was cold where we were sitting. Distancing was good.

The food was quite good but the atmosphere was outdated with loud 80s music playing.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.

We eat there quite often. We don’t have any special needs but if we did they would make sure it was taken care of.
The meals are predictable and delicious. Staff is prompt and courteous.

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.

Have loved Trio's for years and years. Last two visits (both on Sat. Nights) not up to par. Food arrived only warm at best.

This past Sat. two of our group got onion soup. The puff pastry didn't seem cooked done. Soup was cold and it was sent back and returned only warm. I had pizza and the toppings were fresh but the whole thing was barely warm.

Have not been disappointed in lunch but dinners have been. I am so sorry to write this but someone needs to know.

Trios, as I have heard has been around for years, but we just recently dined there. I don't think the quality or quantity of the food served is very good. Several of the folks we dined with said their meals were cold, and were not as the menu described them. I don't think we will be dining here again.

I often reserve Trio's for groups because they are very accommodating. The manager arranged for us to have a round table on the lower level in a private niche setting. The menu choices are outstanding and a wonderful value. Our server was attentive and our food arrived promptly. I will reserve again for next month.
