Friendly, attentive staff. Had the eggplant parmigiana over pasta and it was very good. Sauce was tasty, yet light. Definitely a place I would return to!

Third day in DC, it's been a treat so far. The atmosphere here is okay. The restuarant itself is pretty but very empty. Our waitress took her time getting the food nd drinks to us. Only redeeming factor was the delicious medium rare burger that came to my table.

I came upon Trio by accident. I had been walking around D.C. for hours on a sunny but brisk winter day attempting to make my way back to my hotel when I came across this interesting looking place. Interesting as in old school, not diner, not super club but I took a peek at the menu I thought I could... More

We had a wonderful experience with Trio, which was booked by our tour director based on previous experience when our choral group came from Ohio to sing at the National Gallery of Art. They had planned and ordered all the meals ahead from a limited selection, but I was still impressed at the excellent service and quality meals we had... More

One of the chefs that started Clydes has come out of retiremerent to explore great new takes on comfort food. Just for his fun and our delight. Love the new menu.

Even as this fantastic neighborhood of Dupont gets more and new restaurants, trios continues to offer a fantastic basic service at reasonable prices with excellent outside seating. The place serves both regulars and visitors well and is big enough on the outside seating to take overload during good weather days. Best for breakfast.

Not a bad looking retro restaurant, but the food was just not so enjoyable. The service was good, so perhaps there is a redeeming dish waiting to be discovered.
