TRIO Grill Ratings and Reviews
Trio Grill used to be a favorite of ours, but the chef increased the spice level of the dishes so much that we went elsewhere. We decided to try again and they have a new chef. The menu isn't nearly as exciting, nor is the food. And even though the restaurant was pretty empty, it still took a long time to get our food. And, the prices are high for food that isn't that great.
The cigar lounge is incredible! I've used it twice for business meetings and am sure I'll use it again often. The dinner was perfect with a seamless transition from table to cigar . My clients have been VERY impressed. I'm sure they will start using it for the same reasons I do.
Trio Grill needs more love. It is a really good restaurant, with excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. The cocktails are outstanding--From Tequila with Love is the bomb. The food is consistently excellent, from the wonderful bread to a fine and authentic caesar salad, a great assortment of oysters with a nice mignonette and a radish relish that is surprisingly good on the oysters. The shrimp and grits are delicious, my husband always gets the halibut and I can also vouch for the ribeye. The wild mushroom side is awesome. Monday night is half price wine night, which is a good deal. I think it deserves more buzz--except that then parking would be even harder. That is the one down side, but they do have valet service.
Food was poor all around. There was a almost no one ion the restaurant at 6pm on a Sunday.Despite this,the food was A LOOK slow in comimg and the chef murdered a $37 steak.Servers were nice but the kitchen embarrasses them. We were a Party of 11 people (including 3 kids) in nice private dining room. The bill was almost $600 including tip which was hard for me to give.
No manager ever came over to see how we were doing at anytime during meal.
Avoid this place.Overpriced with poor food
It appears Trio has come into their own. We are local and happy to see our neighborhood places succeed! We had a wonderful evening on the patio, encourage you to sit out there...It is heated and the fireplace crackling with the smell of fall add to the ambiance. The service was excellent and attentive, Samuel is the key to the team...orchestrating, managing and overseeing each diners experience. This is a much needed touch that had previously been missing. Samuel is full of personality and we enjoyed speaking with him as he carefully worked the dining room and patio. The food was amazingly good, we had oysters (recommend they add a beyond the bay option), Salmon and Tuna entree with Pumpkin pie desert. Thumbs up. Thank you Trio keep it up!
We sat outside, which was quieter than the inside seating, and with the outdoor heaters it was plenty comfortable despite to the chilly weather. We loved the creative food (and drinks), and the service was competent and friendly. We started with a couple of great cocktails - the Platinum Mojito and A Drink with Hemingway. They were two of the best cocktails we'd had in a long time. We shared a baked pear with quinoa/kale/goat cheese salad, which was prepared beautifully and was delicious. I had the shrimp & grits, which had a yummy, slightly spicy sauce. My wife had the crusted halibut, which had an equally yummy brown butter sauce and cranberries. For dessert we shared the apple dumpling with ginger ice cream, which was good but not the highlight of the meal. This restaurant is very nice for special occasions (in our case we were celebrating my retirement) but it's a bit pricy for an everyday lunch or dinner.
Very Impressed! We have driven by Trio many times and said that we wanted to try it. For our 2nd Anniversary, we finally made a reservation. Our waiter, Kyle, was so informative and helpful. His recommendations based on our likes and dislikes were spot on. He as very professional. The Manager, Dragan, stopped by to make sure our experience was great. They rest of the staff was attentive as well. And the food...the food! DELICIOUS! Everything we ordered was wonderful in presentation and taste. I give Trio an A+! We will return for sure.
As our second time dining at Trio, the experience did not live up to our first which was our reason to dine in again. The good news is that the food was exceptional, as was expected from our first dining experience minus the dessert. Our service was the main differentiator between the two. Our server was an older gentleman who came off as very uptight and took a while between table checks. At one point during our visit, he came by to clean plates at which he made a slight hand gesture to my girlfriend motioning for her to give him her plate. Normally this would not bother me, but in this case he did not say anything when doing so which came off as rude. The dessert we had was the German Black Forest cake which is far from what you’d expect and not recommended. Regardless we still enjoyed ourselves and will probably dine in again. Hopefully we will get better service and definitely avoid the cake.
Trio is an attractive space with very good food that sometimes achieves great food. Parking is tight but the valet service is free, friendly, quick, and efficient. The staff are very friendly, but sometimes the wait staff verged on the point of being too friendly, too chatty. It can be a fine line. My wife and I were seated at a 2 person table in a section with several 2 person tables next to each other - other areas I have sat in at Trio are cozy and give you elbow room and talking is easy but the two person tables grouped together felt too close, too loud, and a bit challenging for my wife and I being that we were on a wedding anniversary date. Next time I'd ask for a 4 person table. Our food was excellent. My wife had the shrimp and grits and the roasted green chili grits were fantastic. I had the Ancho Crusted Halibut and it was one of the better prepared
and tasty pieces of fish I have eaten in my life. Desert was Black Forrest Cake which is very very good. Not sublime...but very good.
Well, it was really to get together with family. Tonight I had the best shrimp & grits I've ever had :-) Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and as usual the service was stellar (this time our waiter was Belayneh - incredibly polite and attentive). When we arrived back in our neighborhood (Fenwick Park) we got into a conversation with our neighbors, and the mention of Trio was met with compliments from all (on quality, service and value) so you're definitely doing it right! Thanks again for a great experience!
We celebrated a lovely birthday, anniversary and friends & family get together. The food and service were outstanding. The cocktails were great. We (6 of us) sat outside on the patio, which was so enjoyable and allowed us to have great conversation. Our waiter, Freeman, doted on us, and two other managers checked in with us as well. Thank you Trio Grill for an awesome evening enjoyed by all!
Went for my husbands birthday on a Monday night, which is also half price wine bottle night. Overall the atmosphere was very quiet and peaceful. We dined on the patio which was beautiful. Our server was great! We had the short rib, mac and cheese, pot stickers and the cumin steak. All amazing dishes and would highly recommend. The manager and server both were so sweet and gave us free champagne celebrating our recent marriage and my husband a big slice of birthday cake with a candle for his birthday. We will definitely be back!
Food is very good & presented beautifully. Our server was attentive and helpful, especially in recommending drinks. Only disappointment was we were to sit outside, but the heater above our table was not working so we had to move inside. Oh, and the garlic mashed potatoes didn't have nearly enough garlic.
We have been to Trio several times, but the last two visits have compelled me not to return. The last time we went in service was terrible, but I thought it was just a fluke. Service again this time did not meet expectations based on prior experience at this restaurant.
