When we arrived we just wanted to have a couple of glasses of wine but the bar was packed (it was a Saturday night). The hostess graciously let us sit at a table in the back and our servers were attentive and helpful. We tried a few white wines, from a sauvignon blanc and a vouvray to a couple of... More

While traveling with college friends we went here after lunch rush time and enjoyed the atmosphere and the delicious salads. Actually found it based on a suggestion from a different restaurant that could not accommodate us!

Maybe I am just too old for this place. If you like dimly lit dining, loud music and tiny portions -this is the place for you! We had trouble reading the menu and hearing each other. Bruschetta was 2 tiny-about 6"x 1" pieces of good bread with greens on it . I had trouble finding anything on the menu that... More

Had the best salad I have ever eaten: smoked duck salad with pistachios, dried cherries, grana padano and spinach. They had one of my very favorite beers on tap: Fat Head Head Hunter's IPA. We had a lovely table on the sidewalk, in shade thanks to umbrellas. What made it the perfect lunch: excellent service. My husband's sandwich, albacore tuna,... More

Great spot, excellent wine selection. You can choose your cheeses from around the world, each that comes with a side like fig, chopped mushroom & garlic, or muddled strawberries & champagne. The staff were great and helped us choose perfectly paired wines to enjoy with our cheeses.

Tria cafe on 18th St. has fantastic small plates and salads so it's a perfect spot for lunch with friends. I've tried all the small plates but would find it impossible to choose a favorite; they're all delicious. The beet salad and the duck are also personal favorites but I've never heard anyone say a negative word about any of... More

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon to have a few appetizers & drinks. The bruschetta, cheese plate and of course wine are all recommended! We sat outside on the patio. The service was great and attentive.

I sat outside with an iced tea and had delicious bruschetta and a great fig/Gorgonzola/prosciutto snack, which together with fennel-roasted almonds made a perfect lunch for me. Lovely wait staff and a creative menu make this a place I'll return to often, and bring friends!
