Great beer and wine selection

I go here for beer and wine, they pretty much wrote the book on the beer and wine scene in philly although there are some better places now than when Tria came on the scene. The food is simple but good. Menu does not change often. The 18th at has a younger scene, good supply of krumpet on a... read more

We enjoy stopping at Tria for a glass of wine or a bite to eat. The atmosphere is always inviting, the staff and patrons helpful and friendly. We particularly like the service, advice and good cheer Katrina brings. She is knowledgeable about wine selection and gives good advice about what menu items to select.

There are so many unique restaurants these days. Why not visit different places? The balance of interesting beverages and food anchored by warm, experienced, and efficient servers keeps drawing me back to Tria. Tria is much more than the wine bar/cafe many people categorize it as. Seating for perhaps thirty people and no reservations accepted could be a deterrent to... More

This is a great place to hang out and have a glass of wine and small plates. It is small and gets quite crowded. This is right off Rittenhouse Square and very convenient for our needs. This is a family favorite for before dinner drinks.

No wonder Tria is always packed: The provocative menu of unusual appetizers, sandwiches & salads & trendy brews is appealing & prices sensible. Although it was difficult to choose among figs w/ gorgonzola & prosciutto, ricotta w/ lavender honey, etc., our lunch of warm white bean spread on paprika toast & artisan cheese w/ quince jam on fresh crunchy bread,...

This place was perfect for my wife and I. They have an extensive wine and beer list. They organize the wines by general category such as "funky, bold, luscious" etc. And we were really impressed. The also had an extensive cheese selection. The dishes are smaller sizes. They even have a snack size which has tiny bites. I ordered the... More

I guess the best part of Center City is that there are many great places to eat and drink, so stumbling into quite possibly one of the best taprooms ever doesn't seem too far fetched. Enjoyed a meal and drinks at Tria after visiting the Mütter in February 2015 and was immediately enamored with the food AND the beer menu... More

Stopped here for post-Valentine's brunch dessert and drinks. The beer list was outstanding as we perused the special menu and took a seat at the bar. Arriving around 12:30pm on a holiday Saturday and we had no problem whatsoever finding a seat. By the time we left at about 1:15, every seat was full. With the beers, we split the... More

This is a cute small bar and restaurant that gets quite busy. I particularly liked the bruschetta with brie and marinate dried cherries, delicious and inexpensive. Lots of wine and drinks options and a small menu
