Uptown Waterloo's hidden gem (IMO)

Fantastic food, convenient location, professional yet not "stuffy" service, and great atmosphere. In my opinion, the consistently high quality of food, value for your dollar, and "versatility" (great for romantic dinner, party, or just a great meal) can't be beat.

Fantastic food, convenient location, professional yet not "stuffy" service, and great atmosphere. In my opinion, the consistently high quality of food, value for your dollar, and "versatility" (great for romantic dinner, party, or just a great meal) can't be beat. In an area with limited options for higher-end dining, I'm so surprised this place isn't at capacity seating every night.

This restaurant is a treat for me and my boyfriend. We usually go eat here for our anniversaries or other special occasions. The food is really good but I would say it's overpriced because the portion is not very large. I suggest buying a groupon for King Street Trio (you get 50% off!) if you're on the budget but wants...

The service was friendly, the meal was excellent and the atmosphere was great for date night or for a small group of friends. Seemed like more middle-aged clients (we're early 30's). I really enjoyed the decor of the new location. Only beef about that was that our table for two was a little cramped for the dishes that we ordered.... More

We had dinner here last night and overall the meal was quite nice. We had the soup of the day and the rice balls for the appetizers. These were outstanding! Two of us had the Stuffed Chicken which was delicious. The tomato sauce is delicious! One is a vegetarian and had the Risotto. She was pleasantly surprised with her choice.... More

Ambiance is creatively decorated, but tends to be noisy when full. Cuisine was grossly overpriced for the quality. Had Fish over eggplant, and the eggplant was unique but not flavourful. Chocolate cake best selection on menu.

I have eaten here several times over the past year and have not been disappointed by the food, the service, or the atmosphere. An excellent choice for an evening of casual fine dining. The chef does wonderful things with pork tenderloin!

I took my girlfriend for a birthday dinner to the new King Street Trio. I had been to their previous locations but the new location is outstanding. We arrived and were seated beside the open kitchen. The chef and staff were very friendly and chatty with us. We were able to see the care and passion the chef and his... More

We stopped in here for a post-show dinner on a Saturday night. The room filled up very quickly after its 5 pm opening. It's a very attractive room with a nice intimate feel. Between the two of us, we had the pecan-crusted brie, a melon and artichoke salad, scallops and gnocchi, and the stuffed steelhead trout fillets. I think they... More

We were the only four in the restaurant so you would expect everything to be perfect....wrong. The server got one order wrong for one of our group and reacted like how did that happen? As well, the server brought a salad to another member of the group while no one else had anything so by the time the rest were... More
