Great cheese and wine

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... read more

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

We went to Tria cafe because we wanted to try some different beers that they have. We ask for 4 different saladas and all of them were really tasty. There was a great variety of beers, for all tastes. All these for a very affordable price. It is a simple and small place, with a very friendly staff and nice... More

This was next to our hotel, The Alexandra, on 12th Street. We had had a good day of walking and having cheese steak for lunch at Pat's so dinner was not something we wanted a lot of. We stopped by at 6 PM on a Monday night. The place was busy, but not noisy. We were planning out next assault... More

Loved the salad of Smoked Duck and Spinach with Allagash Cherries, Pistachios, Grana Padano and Citrus-Mint Vinaigrette - particularly the cherries; went back the next day and had Salad of Grilled Asparagus, Artichoke, White Beans, Tomato-Onion Relish and Pine Nuts which wasn't so special but service/atmosphere both great for lunch

The wine, beer, food, and service were all good. But... this is a wine bar. Why is the background music a bunch of ear-splitting banshees? There's no way to savor and enjoy the wine (forget about the company) because you can't hold your glass and protect your ears at the same time. There's got to be a better selection of... More

I wanted to like this place, I really did. When we first walked in we immediately liked the feel of it, the décor and the lighting. Staff were friendly too. But when we were seated, it started to go a bit downhill. It was loud, and there was a draft. I don't know where it came from: we were in... More

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 party... 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
