Loved the sea bass- but stuffy old bird atmosphere.

We are fans of Embers and know Trio is owned by the same group- so we thought we would give them a try. I had been at Trio years before for lunch and remember not being impressed, so we had never been again. We were there on a random Thursday night and had to eat early in order to pick... read more

My husband and I frequently visit Trio and the service is always the same - GREAT! You can't go wrong with any of the flatbread pizzas and the salmon salad is the absolute best. Do ask for Jen, she's our favorite server.

If you want a good pizza, don't go here. It is so over-rated. The hostess sat us next to a group of 12 and it was so very noisy. We had the hostess move us to another table but that was next to another loud group. We ended up sitting at the bar.

For my first time not a bad experience. Only problem is that salad didn't come with all ingredients and had to ask. Dressing was not enough so chopped salad was kind of dry. Garlic Mashed potatoes were Luke warm with a clump or two. I will give this restaurant another chance. But will give kudos to Megan the bartender who... More

Visited Trio with family members for an early lunch. Four adults and a happy, energetic baby. Jaclyn was our server, and was very attentive, cheerful and professional. We had a delicious lunch. Our choices included a special seasonal salad with beets, watermelon, arugula, and goat cheese; a goat cheese salad with tomatoes, a traditional flat bread, a cauliflower gratin. Each... More

This is a good spot for a relaxing lunch when you're shopping or otherwise in the neighborhood of the Kenwood Towne Center.

Visited this place numerous times in the past 7 years. Last week was a bad experience. I bragged about the banana cream pie and found out they cheapened it up by putting in a little tart shell ! It was terrible to say the least plush the spinach dip was runny and the sliders very dry. This place use to... More

Thanks for your feedback and for bringing this to our attention, Victor. I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your experience on your last trip, especially given that you’ve been a loyal customer over the years.

We tried this place for the first time this week. We regularly visit the Blue Ash area on business. If you're looking for a good meal with great service and a pleasant dinning experience, this is the place. I had the scallops and they were good sized (about the size of a quarter) and "melt in your mouth." They were... More

As a group of 6 we had made reservations and were seated promptly at a great table. The wait staff was attentive. The food and drinks were served on a timely basis. The food here is varied and all of it quite good and plated nicely.

The food here is very good - American, but often with an interesting ingredient or preparation to keep it from being boring. The menu has enough selections to please anyone in your group - small plates, salads, entrees, sandwiches, flat breads, and pizzas. I've eaten here many times throughout the years and always enjoy the food. The service is impeccable.... More
