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

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

OK - so when you are restaurant that positions itself as extraordinary - and you charge for it - you better be down on the details. I have been to Trios many times - the food and the service typically do not disappoint. Today however, I ordered the Cobb Salad - the lettuce was fresh - the avocado was plenty... More

Let me say that I have been to Trio's on many occasions for lunch. I have always enjoyed it and thought it to be of good value and high quality and nice buzz in the room.

Had a business lunch her a few weeks ago. The place was packed midweek and I understand that is usually the case. Very high quality selections and food quality, emphasis on fresh and local. The Scottish salmon was the special, excellent preparation. Salads very good too.

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.
