Small plates concept. Nice outside deck with fireplaces and wrought iron fence, flowers. Great place to meet friends for drinks. Given small plates concept, becomes very expensive for dinner. Cute, urban/rustic interior.

I found the food uninteresting and just okay. They catered very well to our random requests, but those requests would not have been necessary with a better menu. It is like having bar food at a nice restaurant. The seating outside is beautiful though and the fireside tables were very inviting.

I know a bunch of people that love Trifecta ... I have to say that we go and it is always OK ... the fries are terrific btw.... Never had a bad meal, but for the price I think downtown Wilmette is serving up some much better options these days. Very nice staff and good friendly service

I tried Trifecta for the first time with a friend for a casual drink and light bite. I was surprised at how busy it was on a Tuesday night, and so we took a seat at the bar. The drinks were well mixed and prompt, the bartender was knowledgeable and engaging, and the flatbread pizza was really good. It was... More

Winnetka isn't exactly the place you'd expect to find a bumpin', trendy restaurant with LA vibes, but this is what Trifecta brings to the village! And it does it without being awkward or feeling out of place. We went here on a Friday with friends and sat in the back room. It wasn't crowded at all, but there was enough... More

Love this local hidden gem. Came here for dinner a few nights ago and we got to sit outside which is a plus for the great weather we've been having. This was my second visit (I came for the first time maybe 2 years ago) and boy was it as good as the first time. I had a summer cocktail-watermelon... More

Our bartender was great. She was personable, made excellent drinks and was attentive (but not overly so). Nice bar scene and good location.

It seems to be the local hip place, been there twice this past month, great for a casual drink after work, with colleagues, Girls night out or a date. The atmosphere has a certain buzz which you would expect in the City. Great pizza

Wife and I are big fans -- semi limited menu but the staff as we've gotten to know them treat us so well. Heavy pours at the bar and fun room out back for groups. Patio in summer w/ fire pits can be fun for small groups too.
