We have eaten here many times. Food today was just not good all the way around. Not fresh not tasty. The female server was not the most pleasant and approachable person. For the money it’s just not worth it.

Our brunch on Sunday to celebrate a birthday was wonderful. Started with a great Bloody Mary and went on to a delicious meal. The service is outstanding. The ambiance is wonderful including linen table cloths. All this at a price that can't be beat. Will go again and again.

We dine at Trio a lot for brunch. It’s one of our favorite spots . Saturday we sat on their covered patio area and enjoyed the weather and great food. Trio’s brunch menu and food is so good that every time we go. We get 2 brunch meals to take home for dinner.
I highly recommend and have never been disappointed.

Love this restaurant. The latest visit was a family birthday dinner so I chose Trio because: 1. Prime rib Wednesday special; 2. Great for larger groups and kids; 3. The baked Alaska. As always, the food was delicious and the staff was fabulous. Everyone enjoyed their food, from the prime rib to the fried chicken sandwich.

We had not been to Trio's in several years. Why I don't know but I am really glad we decided to go. The food and the service was outstanding and unlike many locations it did not break the bank. We generally do not go out during restaurant week however my good friend was celebrating his 75th birthday and was on his way up north so I took a chance to see where we could get a reservation and Trio's had an opening @ 7:30. While it was busy, as expected, the service and quality of food was outstanding. We were able to get one seat at the bar and the bartenders could not be more friendly and accommodating. We will be back very soon and will definitely recommend Trio's to all of my friends. Thanks to the entire staff for a great evening.

We have been to Trio's 15 to 20 times in the past. The service is always great. The food is always great. The last time we went was for Restaurant Week in Charlotte, NC. We also went to 2 other Restaurants during the week, but of the three Trio's stood out. If you want to have a good time, good food, and good service, this is the place.

My friends and I came here for Restaurant Week. I had the Lobster/shrimp ravioli . It was delicious. All courses were great! The only complaint I have is that my Almond basket was burned on my dessert. So overall I was happy with experience.

I ordered the Farro risotto this time and it was delicious. I will order that again. Trio's is a great neighborhood restaurant. You always know that you will find something that you will like. It is moderately priced, but it is not fast food. Everything is cooked to order, plated and well presented. Fine dining at an affordable price.

I think an $11.00 salad should have more ingredients and be larger.

We were a group of 10 with 2 children, we all enjoyed our food. I had the lobster ravioli with some extra parmesean cheese grated on top.... If not in a restaurant, I would have licked the plate! The calamari also was some of the best I've had. I was visiting Charlotte from NJ, but next time I'm there I will definitely go back to Trio!

We have been going to Trio for about 15 years. The staff is largely the same. What does that say? This locally owned gem beats those chains by miles and miles. Their specials change monthly, so check the site under "menus" to see the specials each month. Always something fantastic on there for most tastes. The bar is usually busy with locals; a lot of times the same locals! But they are happy to include newbies into the group and are friendly and welcoming.

We like to sit "in the pit", where there are just 3 booths across from the brick pizza oven.
Brunch always offers faves like pancakes (only on Sunday and different each week) and benedicts, but I love the breakfast pizza with spinach, fontina, scrambled eggs...yum! Michelle makes the best mimosas and poinsiettas (champagne and cranberry); it's like she just whispers "juice" over the champagne. If you like curry, you've got to try the Mulligatawny soup. WOW. And the quiches are succulent no matter the fillings. Delicious.
Lemon salmon with creamed cauliflower and grilled asparagus is my go to for lunch or dinner; you'll never miss the carbs, promise!! My husband loves the Trio meatloaf and it looks delicious, but so much food! 2 full meals' worth at least. If you're a salad person, the Killer dressing lives up to its name!
Service is friendly and never rushed. Servers are knowlegeable and can answer any question on the spot. Just after church lets out there's a wait. Always. So go early or after 1 unless you don't mind waiting. Or just go on Saturday!

Salad I ordered with salmon - needed more salmon and a LOT less stalky green. Part of money I paid was for tough stalk that no one would want to eat. Disappointed in the overall salad = have had much better food there in the past.

The restaurant was very crowded so it may be that just my meal was not very good for some reason. I ordered the Trios salad and it tasted and looked like it had been sitting around for quite a period of time.
