Trio Restaurant - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews

We had an excellent experience at Trio on Saturday. Loved the ambience, and service was prompt and friendly. As a person with a gluten allergy, I loved that the GF options were marked and there was a wide variety. We will be back.

Three of us dined here for a birthday occasion on Labor Day. The restaurant did not expect a large crowd on a holiday, so they had a reduced staff. More diners showed up than anticipated, so the wait to get service was longer than expected. Our waitress was good natured, but had to attend to more tables than usual. I ordered smoked chicken penne in a white cream sauce which was tasty with an unexpected plus: the plate was hot! We sat in a booth next to a window, which was to the side of the main dining room, so it was a little quieter. Conversation was easy to hear. The crème brulee was a disappointment: the custard was a little too firm and the glazing on top was skimpy; however, the presentation was lovely. Happy birthday was written on the plate lightly in chocolate, a few strawberries were on the side, and two dollops of various desert sauces were splashed on the plate. I've dined here before, and would definitely go back.

I chose Trio's for my Red Hat group's dinner as I know from experience that service is always exceptional and the food choice is outstanding. This visit was no exception. In the past I've had lunch and dinner with small groups and large (as many as 40) and I've never been disappointed.

Was here from Atlanta and decided to try this place since restaurant week was available. For the price I thought his place would have been a bit more swanky... & the food was okay. The server was pretty cool though. Wouldn't put this on the list of good eats when I return to Charlotte in the future.

We moved to Atlanta twenty years ago after living in Charlotte for five years. When we lived here Trio's was one of our favorite restaurants. This was our first time back since we moved. The restaurant is still clean and well managed . The food is well prepared and presented. The service was excellent. The bar is well stocked and the drinks were well prepared. The wine list gave us a good selection. I hope they continue to succeed.

Our first and last trip to Trio. Our expectations did not match the reality of this place. it is a mall restaurant which is long in the tooth. It is a little run down, not terribly clean, and has a very average menu. Fine dining it is not.

My husband and I chose to have dinner at Trio's on our anniversary. Trio's is where we first met, so it holds great memories for us. As always, the food and service were fabulous! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Restaurant was dated and needs remodeling. Chips tasted stale but our server was nice enough to bring fresh ones when we requested them. Salad with house dressing was okay but not great. I drove from Huntersville to eat there and I was disappointed. I will likely not be back.
Great meal on Mother's Day!
It has been several years since I dined at Trio's, but, after the wonderful brunch on Mother's Day, I'm going to make sure to go back soon. I made reservations early since we needed a table close to the door for my mother 's walker. The table just inside the door was perfect! I had forgotten the muffins and banana bread to begin our meal. The grilled salmon was delicious as were the tasty grits and asparagus. The meatloaf and mashed potatoes were very filling, and the creamed spinach great! The almond basket is large enough for 2 people to share so make sure you save room for one. Even though the restaurant was extremely crowded, the service was run like clockwork . Thanks SO much!!!
Good food, but service not very warm and friendly
We enjoyed the meal - my husband had a balsamic chicken salad and I had the salmon special. Reasonably priced. Service was efficient - but not warm and friendly. Server did not interact with us in a "hello, how are you tonight?" kind of way. No "feel good" kind of interaction at all. Very cursory. No matter how good the food is, some level of connection with the server is important - and we didn't get that on this particular Friday evening.
Had the Valentine's Day special
Went for Valentines Day and ordered the filet. Was cooked perfectly medium rare. Food was very good. The restaurant was busy, but I think service could have been a bit faster. Have been a few times for lunch and the food is consistently good. Is in an easy to get to location also.
Good thing I have eaten here many times
Food was very good. I eat here a lot but the service for the first time was non existent. We came at 6 and it was not busy....everyone probably still in post Superbowl let down. Waited 35 minutes for entrees and the server never came back until she gave us the bill.

It was early evening dinner. We were seated right away. The seating was nice. The food was good just not as hot as expected. Our waitress took a while to check in on us. I was not sure if she was responsible for multiple sections or tables. Overall it was a good experience. I will go back to try the Baked Alaska dessert since I did not this last time.
Can always count on them to provide good food
We have visited there many times and always enjoy the food and ambience. This past visit was less than perfect though. As we sat down we realized that the bulb over our table would light up and then go off...constantly for the entire hour. The hosts should have removed the bulb altogether...maybe next time. But the ribeye was extremely tough, yet they replaced it after telling me the filet was much better and they gave it at the same price. Also threw is a dessert...an almond basket which is superb! Been getting it fro years and always the same. Will continue to go back.
I had the teriyaki salmon with stir fried vegetables which was the special Sat. night. It was excellent. Would like to see that added to the daily menu. Also would like to see the shrimp and Tasso fettuccine back on the menu. Sergio was our server and he did an excellent job.
The caesar salad was bland. I ordered the Mediterranean seafood dish and the scallops and shrimp were under cooked. My husband ordered the guilt free turkey burger. He was more satisfied with his dish. My waitress, who I also think was the bartender (slow night), was helfpul and my martini was tasty! She sent my scallops back to be cooked more. Her shift leader/manager came to my table and apologized for the chef's error and offered a free dessert for my trouble. Sounds good, right? Except, I should have received a free dessert any way because my total bill (before taxes) was over $30, which was advertised on their menu. Her intentional obfuscation left a bad taste in my mouth.
All ways enjoy
I have visited several times and usually with clients for lunch but took a group recently for dinner and once again enjoyed our experience. We like that there is a great variety of food for very reasonable prices along with service is top notch. Just overall a wonderful experience on each visit.
Dependable. Comfortable. Yummy!
My husband and I split a salad and a pizza apiece. Pepperoni and mediterranean. One beer. Glass of wine. More than $30 so got free dessert. Chocolate pie. Delightful! Attentive service. Good, low-key food. Great way to end a quiet weekend.
