“Worth a visit - excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The menu is pretty standard and familiar and the chef did a very good job with everything we ordered. I thought the NY Strip was very good but the creamed spinach and mashed potato's were very salty. The fish was prepared perfectly and our waiter Dominic was top notch and provided solid insight regarding the menu. Atmosphere was lively and laid back a perfect night out with my wife.

“Cool decor, good service - but the food was hit and miss.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

I had the ribs - per the waiter's suggestion, and they were comparable to many good barbeque spots that we've been to. They were heaped on a small bed of perfect cole slaw - crisp and fresh. Sweet potato fries were nice, but there were more than any four people could eat on that plate!
My husband had the lamb, though - and it was not very good: tough, dry, overcooked, and too highly seasoned. Wine (the Malbec) was fine, again, the waiter's recommendation.
Service was good, mood was fun. Just wished his meal hadn't been such a dud.

Dominic our server made our evening. He made us feel like we had been friends for along time. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you go there ask for Dominic

“Love the Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

My husband and I picked Trio based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and had a fantastic experience. The décor of the restaurant, the service and the food were all superb. My husband had the seafood stew and I had the scallops; both absolutely delicious.
