Especially enjoy the lighter menu of flat breads and salads. Great hors d' oeuvres. Very friendly staff.

Since I do not live in Cincinnati anymore, my visits with friends always include food. We all like Trio's because it has good choices for everyone and we can linger to talk. Trio's offers a variety of drinks and appetizers that we can all enjoy...and don't forget desserts! The staff proves informative and helps with main menu choices, specials and... More

you can always count on the "best of the best" coming out of the kitchen at this place. my visit there tonight was no exception. The problem is with management.

After not having dined here for several years, I was in the area and remembered how much I liked this place years ago. The visit, on a late Sunday afternoon, did not disappoint. I took my elderly mother as well as my college-age daughter to Trio for a quick meal. The decor is contemporary and nice mix of stone, wood,... More

Trio offers casual upscale dining. The bar offers many classic drinks with a tasty twist. The daily specials are worth noting but the main menu offers well-prepared comfort foods bumped up to a classier level. The baked brie is a great starter to share with cocktails.

My wife requested that we dine at Trio for her birthday. Since we hadn't dined at Trio for a while I checked some reviews. After reading some of the negativity, we almost ditched. Happy to say we didn't. Food was excellent, service was top notch and the price was reasonable for this higher quality restaurant.

I hadn't eaten here in over a year, so I thought I 'd go back for the Nicoise salad that I always used to get because it was so good. I arrived for lunch with 3 friends about noon. We were seated in the newer addition with the large windows overlooking the parking lot. It was a nice room, but... More

The food is consistently good as it the service. Pleasant ambience and not too noisy. A good selection and the fish is always good.

As usual, the overall experience at Trio was excellent. The only critique is that I ordered the lemon chicken, which I have had before, but this time the dish was a little too heavy on the lemon. It wasn't as we'll balanced as when I've had it in the past.
