Upscale, Rich Food and Priced Accordingly

We went on a Friday night and the place was packed so you'll want to call ahead and make a reservation, especially on the weekend. It's located in a strip shopping center off Kenwood road. Nice decor but the lighting was so dim we could barely read the menu. They offer a variety of menu items... read more

Was not impressed with the hostess that answered the phone. My husband and I were visiting from out of town and called to see if we needed to have a reservation. She was rude on the phone and not helpful. Upon arriving the hostess asked if we had a reservation and we said no, she preceded to have an attitude... More

Adjacent to the giant Kenwood shopping complex, this place provides friendly and attentive service and delicious, imaginative food. Highly recommended.

Trio has wait staff that knows the food and much of the drink. The only problem I have is that it is very expensive for what you get. They shoot for gourmet but in reality it is decent but sparse in quantity. Everything is a-la' cart and the craft beer too is high for the few choices they offer. The... More

Althought a bit far north of downtown, this large restaurant packs them in and delivers. Spinach artichoke dip is huge and tasty. Had Sea Bass, Shrimp and Scallop Scampi, and the Trio Meatloaf. All were delicious. Would highly recommend this place and have Matt take care of your table. Service was over the top good and a 25% discount on... More

Not as good as expected but acceptable. Expectation was based on its association with Trio Bistro, which was excellent during all 3 trips to that restaurant. Ambience was good, the bar area was energetic but the lighting was too dark and the view from the window (of the parking lot) was not so exciting. The food was good.

Yesterday was our daughter's birthday and we three went to lunch at Trio. As usual, we were anticipating an excellent array of great lunch items and were not disappointed. I chose a Margharita Flatbread, my wife chose a small plate Cobb salad and my daughter chose a chicken flatbread. Except for a couple of crumbs, all plates were cleaned. Then,... More

It has been some time since we visited Trio, but we definitely will put it on our list of restaurants to visit more frequently. Hubby and I shared a beet salad with red beets, golden beets, and pears layered in a delightful stack. Unique presentation and very, very tasty. We were pleasantly surprised to see they have a nice "Gluten... More

Trio was a unanimous pick by our family for a birthday dinner for our 91 year-old mother. We have eaten here many times before and have never been disappointed. The service is polished and professional and the food is sensational. It is rare to find a restaurant where everything on the menu is sublime, but Trio is just that place.... More
