Interesting and delicious small plates, fine beer, wine and cheese

Philadelphia has so many wonderful places to eat and drink these days. Tria offers both. The beer menu alone is intriguing, dividing offerings into "invigorating," "friendly," "profound," and "extreme." We started with bruschetta, two slices of crisp French bread on a plate to share. We loved the... read more

We stopped here for happy hour drinks and snacks and were able to sit outside to enjoy the weather, people watching and some amazing treats. The wine list is impressive - and there are plenty of small plates to try to whet your appetite before dinner. I do not know WHAT they do with the almonds, but get those! They... More

Staff are very knowledgeable about the cheese and will recommend both wine and cheeses. Enjoyed a wonderful fresh salad after the cheese. Staff very courteous and left us alone to enjoy. Excellent.

This small cafe has a great wine list, interesting cheeses and inventive appetizers. We shared the Gouda and beet appetizer, it was divine. Also shared the cavatelli and another pasta "small plate", they were both good sized portions. Food was served hot ( pet peeve of mine, I dislike warm food), fresh, bursting with flavors. Service was very attentive and... More

This is great little spot for light food and wine. The atmosphere is good and the service is excellent. Limited selection at the bar. Its just several beers and wine.

Boyfriend and I had a lovely lunch here. The brie and truffled mushroom sandwich was the highlight of our Philadelphia dining experience. Friendly and attentive staff and so lovely to sit outside and people watch!

I always enjoy Tria. I think it's one of Philly's best wine bars. Tonight at happy hour, I had a delicious rose wine - the perfect way to relax at the end of a long, hot Summer day. It was accompanied by the brie and cherry brushetta. Both were excellent. The staff was friendly and attentive. I really appreciate their... More

great food and wine selections at this restaurant. It's pretty cramped and make sure you have a reservation.
