Very Good Food and Service

We ate at Trio Bistro for dinner last Friday and were very impressed with the food and the service. We first ordered the spinach artichoke dip appetizer. The dip was excellent, but the grilled balsamic crisps were a little different. I then ordered the New England Diver Scallops, which were... read more

We had the private room. Perfect for 10-14 people. Excellent service by the team. Drinks flowed, and food was great. Steak was very good, plus everyone else seems impressed too. Nearly hit the 5 stars actually, starters were great too, but desert just fell short. I'll certainly be back, when next in town.

Visited Trio over the holidays and was very disappointed in my meal. This used to be a place where you could count on both excellent food and service. On this visit, they only hit one of those marks. The server was wonderful, attentive and professional. If only the same could be said about the food. Salad ingredients were not that... More

This lovely restaurant serves fantastic food. I was there for lunch and had baked brie, beet salad and scallops. I enjoyed every bite. I am in my late 40's and I was the youngest woman there, other than the wait staff, for this weekday lunch. It is definitely the place for the senior woman's lunch. However, I am guessing it...

Visited Cincinnati and went back to a Trio's- an old favorite. Food was good, wine list great, but prices have really inched up with average service levels. Still, we will come back!

This is a busy neighborhood restaurant frequented by knowledgeable locals because of the variety and high quality of the menu. There is also a fine bar area but the food is really the main attraction. Selections range from standard fare that is well prepared to slightly more exotic entrees. Whatever you order you will likely be pleased.

My business associate and I enjoyed a quiet lunch discussing business. The club sandwich and the albacore tuna salad were prepared to order and delicious. Service was unobtrusive and the flow of our meeting was not unduly interrupted. The décor is suburban elegance featuring leather and wood with tasteful decorations. Parking is an issue with some next to the restaurant... More

We had a great Sunday lunch. We shared the brie appetizer. Very good. Great fresh taste. My niece got the french toast. It was very good. Almost like a dessert. I got the blacked grouper sandwich. I loved it. Fresh grilled just right. Only complaint is the slow service. Or food came out at such big intervals that some of... More

I have eaten here before, but it has been many years since the last time. I honestly can't remember why I discontinued; however, it was probably due to my lack of interest in their menu at the time. The wife and I decided to give it another go, especially since we received an advertising coupon for $15 off a $50... More
