I have eaten there many times for brunch and lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I have highly recommended trio to others. Dinner was a big disappointment.

TRIO has always had great food and superior service. Every time, not one single variance in my 15 years of visiting this restaurant.

My husband, sister-in-law and I arrived at Trio’s 15 minutes before our reservation time and were seated at a table for 6. Unbeknownst to us, the other 3 members of our party arrived shortly thereafter. They gave the attendant my name (the name the reservation was under) and she/he told them there was no reservation under that name. The three of them were then seated in a booth out of our view. For about 15 minutes neither of the threesomes knew the others were there. I finally got up to check on the situation and I happened to see the other threesome seated in a booth. My party of 3 picked up our drinks and moved to the booth with the others. The booth was a much better seat than the table where we were first seated.
No one on staff apologized for the oversight nor did they offer us a plausible reason why it occurred. I was
quite miffed about the situation. I made these reservations well in advance of the actual event and it was a family celebration for my sister’s 84th birthday. Trio’s was my sister’s favorite place for bunch. This episode has definitely affected my view of the restaurant.

Excellent food and service as usual. I had the seared shrimp and scallops with pesto pasta. Yummy! My husband had a pizza, as always. He ate all but one piece, so it must have been good. We had a reservation and was glad as there were numerous people waiting when we came in.

The menu and the food are good. The restaurant itself is tired and in need of an update. The service was good as well. Seem to have a much older clientele than I remember.

Went for my wife’s birthday and had amazing experience. Was pretty busy but with our reservations we got seated immediately. Our server was attentive and professional, and the food was amazing. Everything we ordered was perfect but the Farro Risotto was out of this world. I had with the Salmon on it and WOW!!!! Will be back very soon!

We went here for Father's Day Brunch based on the ratings for brunch. I don't agree with the rating as one of the top places in Charlotte for brunch! It was average, at best, with nothing special at all. The service was fine and the food arrived timely. However, the food itself was ok, as the taste was fine, but not anything to brag about. We got the waffle, quiche of the day, and eggs benedict, so a wide variety. Additionally, the restaurant looked dated and dingy - obviously had not been updated in a long time. Hate to write a bad review, but we were very disappointed.

The grilled chicken and spinach salad I had was very good. All ingredients were fresh and the homemade ranch dressing was delicious. The price was surprisingly reasonable. I will be recommending Trio's to friends.

The waitress was ok, borderline aggressive. Rushed us to take order said they had other big parties coming. The brunch menu was NOT worth the price I got quiche and I was expecting a small quiche but instead one slice and looks to be a half of cup of potatoes. Other guest got chicken and waffles looks to be a half waffle cut into twos and a wing

I go to Trio any chance I get and this was my first in-resaturant experience since COVID began. The safety measures they had in place were excellent and all staff were masked. Absolutely no one was on top of one another and outdoor dining was an option. I have never had a bad meal at Trio.

Took my mom and dad for dinner to celebrate my moms birthday. I've visited Trio many times with a good experience in terms of service and food quality. This visit was no exception ! While not off the beaten path, Trio is a hidden gem.
