Visited with large group; excellent food and service

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... read more

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

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.

After a bad experience in delivery and after call Murad, the manager, to let him know regarding it. He proposed us to come directly in his restaurant. We have been realy surprise regarding the food quality and the restaurant atmosphere! It was amazing, realy good and the products are realy fresh!! We will come back more often for sure!

Lovely place, retro menu, stiff drinks, great sandwiched and desserts. Homey and warm. I'd be happy to go back and think its a great place for kids.

This a warm, welcoming and charming restaurant. It isn't a modern chain, cookie cutter restaurant - it has its own personality. My husband had the filet mignon. It was melt in your mouth delicious, and he raved that it was the best he had ever eaten. I had the crab cakes, and they we're chock full of crab, not breading/filling,... More
