There is both indoor and outdoor seating. It was a beautiful night, so we sat outside on a delightful patio overlooking the lake. You could hear live music from an event in the park---it's Austin, of course. There are both traditional and more exotic entrees to choose from on the menu. I had antelope, because, why not? My date had... More

I decided to go here for dinner because I wanted to try the antelope. First the decor was great as it was very modern and contemporary and I like that style. I went ahead and sat outside because it was a nice day and the patio was very comfortable and inviting. So I ordered the antelope with the potato puree... More

We recently went for dinner. Sat outside on the patio overlooking the lake. Hard to believe we were in the middle of downtown. Ordered the smoked ribeye which was incredible. Splurged on the Mac and cheese well worth the calories. My husband had the filet and said it was one of the best filets he had ever had. Don't think... More

Dear Mr. Ripley, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent TRIO dining experience. Please accept my apologies that we did not meet your expectations, and further more, that we did not discover this as you dined so we could correct it in the moment. While SXSW was an action-packed 10 days, it is certainly... More

I have had several business and personal lunches and dinners here. The food and service and ambience cannot be beat. Staff instinctively understands when to be friendly and when to recede, the professional service is top notch. Food is creative, fresh, presented excellently. NOT your typical hotel restaurant, it is a destination unto itself. The entire facility makes you feel... More

Very impressive display of every kind of brunch food possible. Fruit smoothies, with or without protein powder, very good to help it all go down. Great service, 3 chefs working the stations, and every imaginable meat, fruit and vegetable.

I took my wife here for her birthday, smack in the middle of the Formula 1 event. I think we were lucky to get in, only booking a week in advance. Our staff were just great and the food & wine were simply wonderful. I had the Antelope, blue of course along with the crispy brussel sprouts (yum). My wife... More

I entertained at Trio multiple times during my stay at the Four seasons and the food and service were outstanding. Interesting and varied menu, especially for a hotel dining room. I would go to dine there even if I were not staying at the renowned Four Seasons Hotel!
