Trio provided excellent service and a delicious meal to my party of 7 on a Saturday evening. Matt, our server, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. I would definitely recommend coming here for a more intimate dinner with friends and family. Some food recommendations are the oysters, sesame seared tuna, and beef bolognese. Dessert was great too; my favorite was the key lime pie.

A nice alternative to the lines and crowds at Mosaic. Patio seating is so pleasant and they have heaters over every table which they kindly turned on without having to ask. Meal was excellent. Nice wine list and cocktails. Very enjoyable.

We had a great time at Trio Grill with family and friends. The food was very good, with a few new twists on recognizable favorites. The service was outstanding, and our server Matt was very knowledgeable and helpful with our wine selection. The dining chairs were more like club chairs you’d find at home...incredibly comfortable and provided a relaxed yet upscale feeling. Prices were very fair for the quality of the experience. We’ll definitely go again when we’re in the area.

First time at Trio! Four of us sat outside on the covered patio after first having a drink at the bar. The menu had variety and the waiter knew the offerings well. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly! We had Ahi tuna, eggplant casserole, Ribeye and a filet mignon. Prices are upscale, but so is the experience. Parking can be tough, but they have a valet. We will definitely be back!

Great date night option here. Menu items are a little pricey, but worth the splurge! Delicious meals! We had amazing service provided by Christy. She tended to our needs without over doing it. Everything came out timely. Even with an accidental spill, the night continued very well. The manager was also present, accessible and friendly. We ended the night on their patio with a cigar and whiskey neat. Great vibes.

We were originally seated at a table next to the private dining room which had a bachelorette party going on and asked to be moved because it was getting a little loud in there. Once we moved to a booth, we really enjoyed our first experience eating at TRIO and will definitely be going back. Service was excellent and we tried the Halibut and Beef Rib specials which were amazing!

The perfect restaurant for an intimate dinner with nice ambiance and very low noise level. We were very pleased with our table and service. The food was mostly amazing but we did have to send an appetizer back because it was not hot. The server could not be more accommodating. The mussels are a great appetizer and was easy to share. Each person in our party of four had a different entrees and would recommend their selection to others. The portions are large enough that you don't need to order any side dishes or salads.

Went for an engagement dinner for 10. Service was wonderful and considerate (Christian was our server). The food was well-prepared, but nothing stood out as amazing. Their oysters were fresh, and the other appetizers (potstickers, charcuterie board, and calamari) were good, but we enjoyed the entrees the best. The party had filet mignon, dry-aged ribeye, bolognese, short rib, flounder, scallops, and rockfish. There were no complaints and the flavors were solid even if not inventive. The ambiance is nice, and the restaurant is flexible enough for an intimate dinner for two or a larger group dinner. Would definitely recommend.

Service was below average. Waited for 15+ minutes on 2 separate occasions to order drinks and food. Both on duty managers walked by several times and saw empty drinks and never said a word to us or the wait staff. When the waiter finally returned to take our order he only said “I got busy”.

This visit was our fourth to Trio Grill. The food and service are consistently excellent. However, this visit was our first being seated next to the cigar room (Justice Room), which was a very unpleasant experience. We were blasted by cold air (winter) and cigar smoke every fifteen minutes as people and servers frequently walked in and out of the room, which was irritating. Our clothes also smelled of cigar smoke after we left the restaurant. I would recommend asking for a seat away from the Justice Room if you are not a smoker. Other than our location in the restaurant, the experience at Trio was good.

Although steaks (7 0z filet) and salmon were very good. The "Oscar" that was an add on to the steaks was not evident, at least not for $14 extra. Very, very small addition. We have been to Trio before, but this was disappointing. Chances are we will look elsewhere the next time.
