Cafe Trio Cottonwood Ratings and Reviews
The Cafe was ok - the service was great but the food was expensive for what we received.
The sandwiches were a little dry and lacked a ton of flavor. By far the worst item was the chicken breast salad - it literally was nothing but a chicken breast and iceburg lettuce (there may been celery and what was supposed to be capers) however, the presentation lacked any color or imagination. We were quite surprised to walk out spending over $60 on lunch as we did not have adult beverages.
Unfortunately we will most likely not go back to Trio - which again is sad, the atmosphere was good enough and the service was very good.
The services was a little slow initially, but once the hostess came over to help she took over and was on top of everything from then on! Trio remains one of our favorites too-especially for brunch! (Salmon hash-best thing ever!) Also has yummy coffee and a decent wine list. The pasta dishes are always really good too. This time I had the club sandwich and that was really good! Overall great place to go for really any meal.
We had a family gathering of 14 people and they found us a nice table with some privacy that was just perfect. The food was very good for ages from 75 to 6. The wait staff never rushed us and we had a wonderful 2 hour dinner experience. Thank you Cafe Trio!
We had made a reservation & when we arrived, the hostess said uhhhh, I don't have any tables open... I said I made a reservation last week. Oh, well let me see... oh I have 1 table left open in the restaurant. We were there for our Anniversary & the table we were sat at was right in the middle of everything, very loud & not private or special. Making a reservation on opentable it asks the question, "special occasion?" What is the point of asking if when you arrive there is nothing noted or saved for a special occasion? Our server was not great & we had to ask a bus boy to bring our check. We were not offered after dinner drinks, dessert or anything. We won't be back. The food did not wow us enough to overlook the terrible welcome & service.
I have heard great things about this place, but our server Had not shaven for about a week, and not what you'd expect for a place that runs $100 plus for 2 people. The lighting is not cozy at all and the food was less than desirable. All of the empty tables at 7:30 pm should of been my sign to abort..
Not a good experience!!
For starters we reserved outdoor seating through Open Table for 10 people 7 hours in advance, and when we arrived the hostess did not have any table ready and said it would be a thirty minute wait. So we opted to sit inside. Why make a reservation if they don't accommodate?
After ordering apps and drinks the meal started ok, until 20 minutes goes by without any drink refills. We had to hunt down the waiter to get refills.
The chicken fettuccini was terrible. Tasted like a cardboard box and paste. The tomato soup tasted like canned soup and was way too salty.
The experience was terrible, and will not be going back.
It was a very pleasant evening to sit on the patio and enjoy your meal. Our sever checked back to make sure everything was prepared as requested. The flat bread makes for an excellent appetizer and the spaghetti carbonara could not have been any better. I would highly recommend this place for a great summer meal on the patio
Both location are almost always great. Occasionally the service suffers due to being busy. Nothing drastic... I have also found that they sometimes take a very popular menu item off the menu. And I find that puzzling. But that being said, there are always terrific options regardless.
I booked Trio for Mother's Day Brunch, there was no mention on Open Table that it was going to be buffet style, which was a huge disappointment. We got over the fact that we wouldn't be able to order from the menu, however, we were disappointed again by the buffet -the food was not satisfying at all and the options were very minimal. The dessert bites were decent though.
The patio seating was too crowded, making it hard to walk in-between tables and carry on a conversation.
I have found the food and service to be very consistent in quality! I have never been disappointed when dining at this restaurant. Italian is my favorite European cuisine. The view from the upstairs dining area is great at sunset. Also love the wine list. Looking forward to warmer weather and dining outside on the patio.
