Description: Went their for dinner on Satruday night. Head and shoulders above any other options in Mount Airy. Chef Wishart, formerly at Cross Creek Country Club, does a great job. Trio has only been open 4 weeks. Very nice menu and list of daily specials. EWell chsen and decently priced wine list. Celebrated my father's 96 birthday and we were not disappointed!! Very memorable evening.

I liked it...nothing more nothing less. It was good, sirloin was cooked good, sides were solid, but nothing wowed me. Small menu with no appetizers (though they were offered) and no pre-meal salads (yet what I thought were dinner salads were on the menu). The entrees were listed as "Small plates and entrees" but I didn't know what set those... More

First, our meals were delicious and presented beautifully as we're our desserts. The chef outdid himself and we commend him for this. But, we were not greeted and waited for a long while after being seated. The restaurant's ambiance doesn't complement the food. The tables were being cleaned with spray bottles and clunky noises were around so a quiet dinner... More

More a special occasion type place to eat due to cost. I'm not sure why they seem to want you to have reservations here? It's never overly busy. The wait staff is great, food pretty good depending on what you order (salmon and risotto is awesome). I wished they'd rethink the "hoity toity" atmosphere and try to make it more... More

We were staying in glade valley to drop our child at Camp Cheerio And really wanted a little fine dining-- and there are very few choices in this region. Thanks to Google we found Trio and was so worth the 45 min drive. Every bite was fab from the fried green tomatoes, spring rolls, ravioli and especially the halibut special... More

If having a limited menu means upscale then this place is for you. The combinations could either be considered on trend or strange depending on if you like it or not. I noticed that several meals at our table were taken apart. Top bun from one hamburger, pimento cheese from another sandwich, saturated spinach (too much balsamic), and goat cheese... More

My wife and I dined here for the first time about a month ago. The experience was great in every way and I stated as such in my previous review. This experience could not have been more different. In our first experience I looked up the contact e-mail on their website a few weeks prior to coming. I asked for... More

This restaurant was rated the best we had on the trip to Mt. Airy. The atmosphere is nice, the decor and view nice. The service was good. We had lunch here. My friend had the chicken salad sandwich and I had the chicken breast sandwich. Again, overall our best dining experience in Mt. Airy, NC.

Stopped here to have dinner based on the TA reviews and was very happy we did. I have not had such a good dinner in a very long time and all at our table of 7 agreed that the dishes were delicious. Located just off North Main Street in Mt. Airy, on the second floor, this is a cozy spot... More

I wanted to love this place. There are so few restaurants in Mt. Airy. This one got some really good reviews, so we went with it. Perhaps we had an off night. My husband got the scallops. Good choice. I chose the ribeye steak.(not so good) We had the spring roll appetizer, and we split a Caesar salad. After placing... More

I travel all over the eastern United States so I consider myself pretty much a restaurant critic. Trios happens to be in my hometown of Mayberry (mount airy). They have a very small menu but everything on it is fantastic. The wine is hand picked by the owner and each one has a story. For your wife,try the Dr L... More
