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

My wife and I visited here for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised, it is a nice and cozy little restaurant. The staff was friendly and attentive all night and the food was really good, at first I thought the portions were a little small but by the time you are done it is definitely enough. This is...

Came here for a birthday and had a great evening. Waitress wasn't the most attentive, but the food was excellent.

This is my second five-star review of King Street Trio. My first was a year ago, almost to the day. We got a last-minute reservation for dinner at 7:00 on Saturday night. This is prime-time and the place was packed. We have always sat near the front of the restaurant, but this time we were way at the back, as... More

We went to this restaurant for my wife's birthday. There was a lot of good but visit was spoilt by some annoyances. The food was lovely and quantity was sufficient, although somewhat pricey. The restaurant is very modern and stylish in appearance. The chefs are right in view so I guess you could stand and watch. A few things really... More

My wife and I ate at King Street Trio two nights ago. We are relatively new to the area and are trying out all of the restaurants within walking distance of our condo. Reservations are necessary for the King Street Trio. It was packed, but it was also a Saturday, so understandable. The service was excellent and even maybe even... More

Upon arrival, I was immediately told by the Maitre D/host that a mistake I made in booking (I accidentally had booked twice when booking online) had cost them business as they had to turn lots of people away. Once we were seated, he again proceeded to tell me how awful my mistake was. So I started off our nice night... More

My husband and I went there on a weekend. We had been there before as well. The food's taste is good and has nice design, which you expect it because of high prices. However the foods were served once after one hour and the second time after one and a half hour!! You get so anxious and frustrated after 1.5... More
