Delicious, eclectic food menu, and an extensive wine and beer list. Staff was friendly and helpful in picking out food to pair with wine selections. Atmosphere is a little loud (music and patrons), - it wasn't an issue for me, but I could see it being too loud for some. Great place to dine solo (like me!) or meet up... More

What a gem of a little place! Very interesting menu, with small plates, cheeses, and more. The wine and beer list is great. Nick knows his wine, and was so much fun to talk with. Very popular for outside tables, but we loved the front table in the window. They are open noon til late. Be sure to go for... More

This review does not include beer, which looked great, but I cannot drink it. Went to the Tria Taproom and had some cider and appetizers. Cider wasn't to my liking, apps were OK: - Wings were great - Po' Boy Poppers were not as advertised, the oysters were great, but instead of being on a brioche they came on a... More

My family and I were in Philly and after having eaten at various restaurants and ethnic foods at several different restaurants, we wanted some healthy but light meal for dinner, such as salads. I googled and came across Tria and was intrigued by their creative assortment of salads - not the standard, run of the mill caesar, spinach, greek salads.... More

They serve some wonderful tapas style dishes here, i tried the chicken liver parfait, the fig with gorgonzola & prosciutto and the lamb spicy sausage, they were all wonderful! I saved room for the lemon panna cotta which was just heavenly! They have an extensive wine and beer list, so plenty of drink options as you sample the food. I... More

We have been to Tria on many occasions, but this time it felt like we were returning home, which indeed we were. Our first stop on an evening in the city we hadn't spent time in for years, Tria was a no brainer .... we just had to go there. Our server was so cool and friendly. She made the... More

Stopped in late night for dinner and drinks. The staff were welcoming, incredibly knowledgeable, and friendly. The beer list was superb and the food offered incredible variety. If I lived in Philadelphia. I would make this my regular haunt.

I loved the beer and small plates. The service was excellent. I loved how the waitress explained what everything was when she dropped the food. There really is something for everyone. No snobby selections here. The meat plate with the pickled red onion and coarse mustard was awesome with a cold beer. The truffled toast with egg was so decadent... More

Stopped here for a glass of wine after some shopping. Fun corner spot, nice wine selection and good service. Have been here and the other locations before and find them all to offer a nice respit for tired feet!

Tria Cafe is simply our favorite Philly spot. We try to rarely repeat restaurants so that we can try new things, but we gladly come back to Tria on a regular basis. It's a great place to come for drinks and a snack, with a great selection of beer, wine and awesome cheese that rotates regularly. Their snacks are fantastic,... More
