Fun Local Spot - Get to Know the Bartenders

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.

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

More of a younger singles crowd or maybe a not so young singles crowd. Interesting food options. Pretty high prices on both food and drink. Singles type atmosphere

The atmosphere is amazing here. The terrace is amazing with lights everywhere, fire tables, comfortable couches and chairs and even blankets. The food is simply amazing. We had over 10 people in our party so we ordered at least half of the menu and shared everything. Every single dish was fresh and delicious. Service was great, drinks were very tasty... More

We are a couple from Australia and were visiting some local friends, who suggested eating here. The decor was nice and modern - not too stuffy, not too cheap, and our meals were the size that we are used to - not the super sized that we often receive in American restaurants. Our food was good, the wine was good... More

Just returned from my first visit to Trifecta Grill; it won't be my last. My group of 6 girlfriends went to celebrate a "big" birthday. We shared a number of delicious plates: white pizza, short ribs, halibut, lamb burger--all were delicious & came with the perfect accompaniments & sauces. We also had 3 great mojitos; 2 regular + 1 watermelon.... More

Food is good, but portions are not generous, if you have a big appetite. May be best to order a sandwich, which includes a side. The wines were a generous pour. Don't know how it would be to dine inside in the winter, since we ate on the patio.

We walked in off the street for a quick dinner before a show, and we got a seated right away...on a Friday night....hmmmm. But we were pleasantly surprised. Atmosphere and decor is modern eclectic - if that is even a term. And seating was very comfortable. We got service right away. Menu was very broad with many interesting choices. Lots... More
