Trio An American Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I went here for dinner on Valentine's Day with my boyfriend. It was our first Valentine's Day together, and I wanted it to be really special. Sadly, this did not end up being the case. Our server offered all the straight couples sitting next to us complimentary glasses of champagne but totally ignored us. He took no time to explain the menu to us and had a relatively curt attitude when interacting with us, but spoke at length and in a seemingly friendly manner to everybody else. The server's poor demeanor totally ruined the experience for us. If this server is a representation of what the restaurant stands for then we will not be going back, nor will we recommend it to any of our friends or associates.
My boyfriend and I decided to revisit Trio to celebrate his birthday. We had visited this past summer and were enchanted by the food. The Trio staff wowed us again! We shared the mussels which he had never had. He ordered the chicken and I ordered the risotto (again). Both were awesome! We ordered a dessert each creme brûlée for him and bourbon pecan pie for me. We hardly ever order dessert, but certainly enjoyed them. We will visit again!! Thanks Trio staff for making our night stand out.
My second visit to Trio and it won't be my last. The menu is simply great. There is a good selection of entrees (beef, pork, chicken and fish) and a selection of Pizzas more modestly priced.
The salads were excellent. They do a true caesar salad with the lemon juice, egg and anchovy dressing (not out of the bottle). I had the Steelhead while others in the party had the half chicken (enormous and tasty), pork and the lamb special. All were excellent. Preparation and presentation was outstanding.
Service was knowledgeable and low key. My only caution is this place fills up and with it the noise levels escalates but not to intolerable levels.
The wine list is adequate. We had a bottle of the Quartz Reef Pink Bubbly (can't say Champagne because it's from New Zealand) which was excellent and moderately priced.
Dinner 4 four including 4 x salads, 4 x entrees & 1 bottle of wine was $310 with tax and tip.
I'm a Jackson local and I rate Trio in the very top echelon of Jackson restaurants with the likes of The Jenny Lake Lodge & The Wild Sage. My local friends similarly endorse this restaurant.
Food was good but we had an 8pm reservation and they didn't seat us until 8:45... seems like a highly regarded restaurant would figure this out. It was 20 below freezing and there were several customers who also had to wait a while to be seated despite having a reservation. Service was good, food was delicious though somewhat overpriced.
Second visit to this restaurant. The food is creative, fresh and delicious. Very casual and relaxed dining with attentive service. Loved the mushroom salad and trout entree was fresh and perfectly cooked. My husband had the lamb chops and thoroughly enjoyed them!
My husband and I always try to visit Trio once during our every visit to Jackson Hole. The food and the service are excellent. We would probably go more often if there were a better selection of Chardonnay by the glass. There are 2 and they are both expensive. One should not have to pay $18 to get a glass of a good California Chardonnay. There is a French Chardonnay available for $11 but it is nothing special. Last summer we took some friends who were visiting and they were stunned by the price of the Cabernet they had. So I would recommend Trio but with a warning about the wine list .
So good! We went here the first night of our honeymoon and were not disappointed. Our food was amazing and the cocktails were unique and very good. The tables are cozy and we felt like we were part of the scene without being too close to our neighbors. The staff was very nice too and if we hadn't been trying to go to as many restaurants as possible, we would have come back!
I have always loved Trio and make a point to get there every time I am in town. I will NOT spend New Year's Eve there again. We had an 8 pm reservation which I made a month prior. It was a preset menu. $85 per person with additional $40 for wine pairings. All fine and I had confidence that Trio would make it so worth it.
We were not seated until 8:40. In the interim, we were offered cocktails in the tiny, freezing lobby crowded with other people with missed reservations times. Then we were told the bartender decided not to make any more cocktails for the lobby folks. We finally got tasteless, icy cocktails just before we were seated. We were rushed to order our food which arrived before we were able to put in a wine order. Food got cold while we waited for wine which we only got because the chef happen to stop by our table. Some of the food was good although the lobster bisque had one tiny piece of lobster floating in the center of a large bowl of... bisque. Not good enough to be worth the abysmal service. I really hope this was a one-time f-up and a not a new trend for Trio.
We dined here in off season and after reading other reviews, wonder if we got the "back up chefs". Our food was fine. I enjoyed my arugula salad and my husband said the ceasar salad was good but not outstanding. The bread was delicious. We waited over 45 minutes for our food thought there were only six other diners when we arrived. It did fill up as we waited for our food. My husband got the burger with blue cheese sauce (which we were not impressed with at all. It did not taste like blue cheese at all) and fries. I ordered the trout (they were out of halibut) and it was good, but the entire plate was soaking in oil. I realize that the brussel sprouts were "fried", but that much oil is not appetizing at all. So, glad we tried it, but can't give it a high review.
We had a great time! Food excellent well paced...nice wine list. Was busy as could be but everything went really well timing and food wise. I loved that the chef was expediting and serving. Only glaring mistake was that there was no serving the woman at the table first...not with wine, apps, salad and entree. Odd that everything else was so on the money but the service details were missing.
Appetizer of mussels fabulous flavor and use the delicious bread to dip the sauce. Pheasant entree moist and flavorful. Chicken was good. The pork chop, special entree, was the best on the table. Large portion, great sauce and flavorful!!! Lemon pie was the favorite dessert and the strawberry shortcake not...unique flavor.
I can always count on Trio for great food and friendly, efficient service. The restaurant is near the Center for the Arts, and the wait staff is good about making sure diners who are heading over to the Center for the show are served promptly. My one quibble is that wine prices are heading too high. Not everyone in Jackson Hole is a bazillionaire, and if I pay $15 for a glass of wine I'm going to cut back on the entree and appetizer. But probably the wine is more profitable.
The food was very good. We made the mistake of ordering the blue cheese fries as an ap, which were very rich---I don't think we were expecting all of the sauce on the fries. A little too much sauce on the fries. They were good, but they kind of spoiled our appetite for entrees, as they were too heavy. We will definitely go back and try entrees, but will not do the fries again.
Overall, an adequate eating experience. Had to wait twenty minutes for a table, despite a reservation, and it appeared that they seated locals without a reservation before us. Good wine by the glass. Wait staff could have more attentive. Tasty apps and main dishes. Tables are very close together, so it's a noisy atmosphere. There are other places town that I'd rather visit.
Paid $32 for a small portion of pasta with butter and Parmesan. We wanted truffle pasta and the truffles were another $18, so $50 for a tiny plate of truffle pasta. I've eaten at a lot of five star restaurants and never paid $50 for pasta; even in Manhattan. Also, the wine is about 20% more expensive than other nice restaurants in Jackson. The food is pretty good but not a good value, even for Jackson Hole.
Trio is a wonderful part of the Jackson restaurant scene. It offers great locally sourced food with creatively designed recipes, that are well prepared and expertly served. Locals and out of town visitors create a sophisticated, but relaxed vibe. The cocktail, beer and wine list is well matched.
The food is heavy on cheese. My argula salad so loaded with cheese, it was unappealing. The blue cheese fries were gross. Nothing very special on the menu.
The dining room was freezing. Half the women had their coats on. I mentioned this to a server/manager who told me she was boiling hot! She said she would turn up the heat and she did about a hour later when we were ready to leave.
Try somewhere else, this place is not worth their pricetag!
