Food was good not great. Staff was good. I wouldn’t go back as it was over priced. Parc du ville in mosaic has much better food

This is not a good option for vegetarians. The risotto is covered in a clear clarified butter that hardens to yellow opaque substance on leftovers. We have had it twice since it is the only vegetarian option right now. The vegetarian gnocchi were not great...either. We would be there so much more with more options for non meat eaters.More

I enjoyed this restaurant very much and will definitely return. The atmosphere is very enjoyable. There was a lively piano player at the front of the restaurant. Sitting next to my wife at dinner, I could easily hear her and didn't have to compete with...others around us. The service was great (water was always full which was great because "From Tequila with Love" is deliciously spicy!) We enjoyed and definitely recommend the Tuna Tartare Nachos. My steak was cooked perfectly! The only negative from our visit was when my wife's 2 appetizers were brought out as appetizers instead of with my dinner as we had ordered. The waiter did realize the mistake (as well as one of the water fillers) and along with the manager, and all offered to take back both dishes to have them remade for when my dinner came out. We politely declined and overall, I would say this was not a big deal. Everything was delicious and we will return.More

Usually Restaurant Week restaurants falls into two categories - those that just play along and serve nothing too special and then those that really embody the spirit of the week. This place is certainly the latter and we were so glad we tried somewhere new...and experienced TRIO. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Kelly the hostess who was helpful with our questions and set the tone for the entire evening. Samuel who is their eager and fun sommelier, and B our waiter who didn't rush us and took care we enoyed every course. Thank you for taking such good care of us and our celebration of life and love. The food was amazing and a good sampling of the menu. The pork belly was just delicious and my husband's short rib was also amazing. Great desserts provide an exclamation point to the end of a great meal. I looked over the regular menu as well and there are a lot of things I would like to try on another definite visit. Their wine selection is one of the biggest in the area. It's a warm atmosphere with both booths for groups and tables, ours for two. The decor has a fireplace, soft light, and just chic enough for a night out, but not stuffy. Yes, go, I know you have driven by it numerous times like us. It's a plesant surprise, the best kind....More

Love the food and bartenders! The cauliflower (yes cauliflower) is amazing - beet salads good a bit small though. My hubby ate the oysters said they were excellent- pot stickers too. I would give this restaurant 5 stars if they had better red wine by...the glass - meh 😑 How about some Italian reds? My hubby loves it here as they have great IPA on tap but wine choice makes me pick other places sometimes. Bartenders are wonderful!More

You won't find a more creative menu in NOVA, [Northern Virginia]. Everything on the menu is excellent. Their happy hour offerings are a great value! Service is excellent from their very attentive staff. It is truly 'Fine Dining'. Both their food and drink menus change...fairly often. For every favorite you miss, there are new adventures that are worth experiencing.More

We wanted to meet in the Merrifield area for after work drinks and appetizers, and decided upon Trio Grill. It was our first time here and we were all impressed. The staff was very friendly, the bar choices large, the drinks very good and both...the roasted cauliflower and the mussels were excellent. The ambience is upscale. Can't wait to go back and take my family for dinner.More

Have been to Trios several times now, and each visit has exceeded expectations!! Food, service, and ambiance are all equally excellent. This is truly a must visit restaurant whenever one is in the area. After dinner in the fall, retire to the outdoor fireplace for...a fine cigar and after dinner beverage.More

We’ve eaten here a couple of times & it’s now on our list of favorites. The food is healthy, fresh with nice choices. Carlos the bartender is so friendly and efficient- he makes you feel at home.
