This was one of the only restaurants open on Thanksgiving near my hotel, and they were offering an inviting holiday special: four courses for $20.00. All in all, it was pretty good for the price. The cream of turkey soup was simple but hot which was a welcome relief from the cold outside. The Waldorf salad was unusual in that... More

Met a friend from out of town for breakfast on Veterans' Day at Trio. Their posted opening time was 9:30AM, but we arrived at 8:45AM, so they let us in early and served us coffee and hot tea while we chatted until the kitchen staff arrived. What are the chances of THAT happening in a major US city? Enjoyed Eggs... More

We were a party of 9 and went for lunch/drinks. The food was great, the service was awesome (thank you Stephine) the drinks were good. All 9 of us were having a great time and Stephine was right there to keep us happy!

The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. The waitress seemed a little taken back at the comdiments I asked for but otherwise the service was very good. My husband loved the tea!

After getting our room at the Carlyle Suites on New Hampshire Ave, we walked over to the Trio Restaurant on 17th St. We were shown to a table almost immediately for our lunch and only after a few minutes when we returned later for dinner. For lunch I had trout which was firm and favorable. My partner had a BLT,... More

Always a reliable place to have breakfast or lunch. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is plentiful and good. The drinks also are good. I'd call this comfort food at a Dupont Circle institution. The outdoor seating is plus. It hasn't changed since we last visited DC 10 yrs. ago.

With all of the wonderful restaurants in d.c., why is it so hard to find a good breakfast? We stayed in Logan Circle over the weekend and ventured to the Trio for breakfast, nothing fancy, just looking for something light to start the day. I ordered the "fresh" fruit and yogurt with a bagel. The fruit consisted of some very... More

Food was good and the staff was super friendly. You could tell it was a place locals frequented. I wish I had had a chance to go back for lunch or dinner. Next trip to DC.

Stopped in to visit Trio a while back and was very impressed. For starters, the service was excellent from the time we walked in until the time we walked out. We were seated promptly and the server greeted us within about a minute of us being seated, bringing the menus, offering suggestions and taking our orders. The ambiance is very... More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. They have basics like burgers but also lunch specials. My dining companion had a stuffed green pepper, which he enjoyed a lot. I went with the classic cheeseburger and fries. Those were some good fries! Despite being some of the only customers there, I thought the food took a little longer... More
