Disappointing - fish and chips was over-cooked and the batter way too heavy and burnt. Would not go there again.

Great find! The food was excellent and the service was first class. I don't understand why there aren't more people eating here. The duck special was one of the most unique and tasty meals I have ever had. The appetizers were large, beautifully presented and very tasty as well. The room is very open and finally decorated and the wait staff was very attentive.

The place was empty. On a long weekend Friday. Which is odd downtown Toronto. But the staff was attentive and the food was good. I kept wondering if everyone knew something I didn't. But overall, I would go back.

Trios Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. The staff always makes us feel warmly welcomed, and the service is absolutely outstanding! The food is consistently great.

They currently have a Canada 150 menu, and it's excellent. The compressed watermelon with feta is a really great, light appetizer. The mains are also excellent. But the blueberry crumble with praline ice cream is unbelievably fantastic!

Always a great spot to go for a special evening. The food is excellent and the staff very attentive.
Very well located downtown Toronto, very nice and comfortable setting within a great hotel, we recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Toronto or simply for a night out.

Experience was good overall. It wasn't amazing nor bad; it was just good.

We enjoyed the calamari, Which was well seasoned. The rainbow trout entrée was good, but not amazing.

The service was attentive but not overly attentive.

This is a very pleasant place for a breakfast meeting or just a meet-up with a friend, or for a lunch, as four of us enjoyed last weekend. Finding a really decent, pleasant, well-staffed restaurant of this kind for breakfast and lunch is not that easy in downtown Toronto, so I now have Trios on my list of places to meet up with friends in the daytime. I haven't had dinner there, so don't know if it's as casual then, to eat after a movie, e.g., but I will certainly try it in future.

I went with three friends for Winterlicious dinner, and it was well worth the money. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The wine list however was okay, not an extensive selection, but for what we have for our main courses, it was certainly good enough.

To be honest, I did not have high expectations for this hotel restaurant. Trios Bistro knocked it out of the park! We had the coolest table in the dining room. Our server was gracious, attentive, and delivered impeccable service. The menu options were creative and appetizing. Our meal was superb-- I could not find any fault with the starter, main, or dessert. It was a lovely evening, one I wish to repeat!

Located in the lobby of the Marriott hotel. Best parking is one building south, underground, reasonable price, as compared to using the hotel's garage. One of few restaurants open New Year's Day near the Entertainment District. Very quiet, seemingly overlooked by the New Years' crowd. Limited menu but good range in selection and portions. Food was tasty, plates attractive, service co-ordinated for our party of four. Reasonably priced wine list. Service was excellent: prompt, attentive and courteous. I recommend.

New Year's Eve menu for an early dinner. Surf and turf was great and beef cooked perfectly . The bechamel sauce fell short though. Was far too thick almost solid. But flavours were good . The salmon with grapefruit sauce was an odd combination and went a favourite . The grilled chicken was a good choice and not overdone. Server was attentive until the end where I had to flag him down to clear plates . Desert fell short as lemon tart was too sweet and not very lemony. Pecan pie was ok but not great

Went for Christmas Dinner. Very noisy and kids running around unsupervised. Very cold & draft table. Not enough serving staff as there appeared to be one gentleman for all the tables.
Wouldn't go back again. Didn't realize the restaurant was in the lobby and not separate from the busy much travelled entranceway to the hotel and elevators.

We went there for brunch. there was no brunch menu so we chose something from the breakfast menu. The food was really good but the atmosphere was not what we expected as people staying at the hotel were having their breakfast in tracksuit pants. Not so glamorous....

What a pleasant surprise! Tried some of the trendy spots last minute while in Toronto and they were booked. I remembered there was a restaurant at the Marriott attached to the Eaton Centre and thought it might do. Well, it turned out to be just what I wanted and more! Wonderdful wild salmon cooked better than I ever have had and my husband had pot pie I think which he thought was excellent. Wine choice was spot on, service friendly and attentive and it was cozy and quiet. Perfect! I will be back in February!

We had the Summerlicious lunch. The salad, though tasty, had tired, rather than fresh and crisp, greens. The stuffed pepper was bland. Some sauce atop the filling is needed. The watermelon float was perfect.

Prosecco pouring was skimpy.

Our server seemed miffed because we needed more time to order. He did not return for 20 minutes. We almost walked out.

I have had lunch here previously a few times. This was the only poor experience.

Went there for breakfast on a long weekend but were informed that the buffet closes at 10:00 on Mondays regardless that it was a long weekend or not. The staff, however, kept the buffet open for us past 10:00am.

The buffet was not extensive but it was good quality and we had plenty of food to eat. At $29 per person for the buffet it was a little expensive but we enjoyed the restaurant. It is a very attractive (indoor only) dining room overlooking Trinity Square.

My family of 5 had our Valentine's dinner at Trios. Our server Lorenz was informative and filled with enthusiasm, engaging us and even my children in conversation. We ordered crab cakes which was well flavored and the crab meat was superb; my kids ordered chicken noodle soup split into 2, but I guess the kitchen forgot but that was ok considering how fast the split soup was brought back to our table. I ordered the Korean Taco and it was one of the tastiest I've ever tasted. My boys ordered butter chicken with rice and they were both satisfied. My husband order cod and chips and the batter of the fish was just right, not oily. The fish doesn't have that fishy taste which was good. My daughter ordered the wild salmon with blood orange and the infusion of sauce inside the salmon was not something you get to taste everyday. We tasted it since my daughter can't stop raving about it and who wouldn't!! It was amazing! Even the mashed potato is not like your typical mashed potato. My kids are requesting that we go back and have lunch some time soon. We will definitely go back. Excellent food and excellent people!

Ideal place place to rejuvenate. Very cozy, romantic ambiance especjally by the huge window pane where you can star gaze while having that candlelit dinner with a nice flute glass of Prosseco.
I commend Lorenz for a great customer service that night. Very accomodating, friendly, informative about the menu. The service is fast and acurate.Wpuld highly recommend the place to colleagues, friends and family.

Thoroughly enjoyed our winterlicious lunch. The appetizer (pear naan) was absolutely delicious. For the main course I had the white fish and quinoa and poached pear with marscapone for dessert. The service was exceptional. The chef came out to recommend a different dessert as I suffer from nut allergies. I will definitely return to this little gem.

Not good choices offered on Winterlicious menu and expensive for what was offered. The only thing I enjoyed was the dessert. Not very private - felt like I was sitting in lobby of hotel. The staff were excellent and so was the service but disappointed in food. The night before I went to Ruth Chris for $45 for excellent food and this was $35 with no comparison. Should probably of been priced at $25.00 for what was offered.

We were staying at the Sheraton & looked up a Winterliscious option within walkable distance. We also wanted an early reservation. We thoroughly enjoyed all courses. We'd go back in a heartbeat and if the sun was up we'd ask for a window view. The architecture made the ambience more interesting than a typical hotel restaurant.

I have to say that this restaurant exceeded my expectations. I went there with a party of four. The food was delicious. They had a pre-fixed menu which included lobster. They offer quality!! I must say. The price was a little high because it was new years eve but it was worth paying for it. I went to another hotel downtown for christmas and menu was basic, no good items included like lobster. And we paid a lot more. The service was outstanding and genuine. We had an asian waitress and he Had a very good attitud. If you ask me if i would go back? Of course yessss! And i will certeantly recommend it!

Our food was good- the portions were good sized and not too large, and the lattes were delicious. Service was a bit slow given that it was 915 am and not overly busy. Would suggest it to a friend given its location on Bay Street in the Marriott and proximity to Eaton Centre.
