“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Trio's is one of the best restaurants in the area. Quality and service is always excellent. Prices are moderate to High, but in line with other establishments of this caliber. you cannot have a bad meal here. its just not going to happen. Their Sea bass is probably the best in the country. Their steaks may not be as good as a "5 star rated steak focused" restaurant, but well prepared and delicious. In the end, they have something for everyone, and it will be delicious. Been there as a couple, a family, and a large gathering. Its always been right on.

“Excellent food but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Excellent food and a broad offering but it is stuck in the 1960 with the concept of giving the regulars, even if they are walk-in, the best service. If you want to change a the meal the chef say no way - if you are a regular then no problem. The food is good and the service is on target.

“Great Food in a Trendy Cincinnati Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The power brokers of Cincinnati eat here because Indian Hill is so close. Great salads and soups with exceptional service for either lunch or dinner.

“Really enjoy this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I've been here four 4 (four) times in 7 (seven) days and the food is consistently delicious and the drinks are quite good, too. Not cheap but worth every penny. The bread pudding with cream on the side to pour on was simply heavenly and the best I've ever had, even from the NOLA days when I lived down there for nearly 14 years.

“Best Place for Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This restaurant is a Cincinnati staple, but it does not disappoint in the quality and preparation of its food. I met a friend there for lunch last week, having not been there in a couple of years. It was busy as usual.

I found the menu to be creative and filled with interesting selections. My friend and I selected vegetable soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Now, on the surface, that doesn't sound like much, but the vegetable soup, was a nice hearty soup, filled with great flavors, and the grilled cheese sandwich made with gourmet cheese, bacon simply made you say... "yum!" Of course, we included wine from their extensive wine list.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is terrific, the staff is friendly. It is like going to a neighborhood restaurant, except that it is completly upscale. If you select Trio, you will be happy with your choice.
