This is a fantastic wine bar and restaurant, perfect at any time of day. Go for lunch for a delicious cheese board, innovative salad, and glass of wine. Meet friends here for drinks or happy hour. Take a break from shopping. Or check out their Sunday School, which includes specials. This location and the others in the city serve as... More

Ever feel like a real drink? Or a real meal? Tria is not for you...The wines are generally OK, and the small plates as well, but the several TRIA locations are really not ideal options for non-hipsters who would occasionally enjoy a real drink and a real meal....

The selection of food and wine is great in this place even for an Italian. Of course some Italian quality products are featured on the menu, but the wines at the glass were a real discovery even for an addicte wine taster, both on the American side and on the European one. Well done.

Love this cool Bar/eatery. Imaginative small plates and great wine selection. Service is friendly and fast. Start with one small plate and I promise you will order more. Great plates to share or enjoy alone. I've been two nights in a row because it was a perfect late night doing option and I love the poached Mission Figs. Don't miss... More

We had some nice sandwiches and the service was really friendly and attentive. Simple but nice interior with outdoor seating in the summer.

We went here while waiting to get into another restaurant in the area and I was impressed with how good all of the food was. The service was friendly and fast and a solid variety of small plates so its perfect to go here for appetizers or before a dinner.

Great place with good and prompt service. Attentive waiter. Had a few red wines which were great. Potato chips with aioli and turkey sandwich to eat. Can recommend it for a good wine experience and evening snack.

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!
