Trio Restaurant - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews
This is always a great local place. It's nice to see that the servers stay for a long time. That is a sign of great management. Oh by the way, the manager is such a great people guy. He always smile and makes his way around to the table to acknowledge you. He was truly meant to do that job.o can't complain. It was a nice experience and overall it was excellent.
My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Trio's and everything was exceptionally well done--ambiance, food, service and attention to detail. As usual, the prices for such a quality meal were much less than we would expect to pay anywhere else. Our waiter was courteous and prompt. We were pleasantly impressed with Trio's.
We had a reservation and was seated within minutes. Our waitress came for drink orders right away. The atmosphere was calm and a reasonable level of noise. There were well behaved children sitting across from us. The waitress took our orders and left. The salads did not come for 20 minutes. I had just made a comment about this when she came with the salads. The salad was very good. Our entrees came about 15 minutes later. My husband had a Seaford platter with orzo. The shrimp and scallops were excellent. My food was the problem. I ordered Lobster ravioli. The pasta was under cooked and lobster was old and chewy. The sauce was the big problem, it was thin and dripped on my clothes. Large pieces of spinach under the pasta had become slimy. The only redeeming part about my dish was the 4 well cooked shrimp; I did not see shrimp included. I had a bland piece of garlic bread with meal. Now, the desert I ordered was amazing. I had the *Carmel nut brownie with house made ice cream. The reason I did not send my entree back was that the waitress did not come back for 20 minutes. I think the waitress did a reasonable job considering that they were extremely busy.
Trio is more people friendly and good food than it is upscale. There are numerous options for budget conscious folks. Portions are generous and service is casual, yet informed. The restaurant is 25 years old, so more comfortable than fancy. Broad range of people and attire.
This was our third visit to a Queen's Feast Restaurant and our best overall experience.
The restaurant was very crowded. We were most fortunate that we had used open table. We were seated promptly at reservation time. Staff is courteous and competent. The food was delicious, the wine suggestion perfect, and the price very reasonable. Our waitress was excellent. Lovely evening !
A great experience starting with the warm greeting! The full varied menu had lots of good choices from which we picked pizza(kids said great), lobster ravioli(with lots of shrimp excellent), spicy shrimp & grits(excellent) & lasagna(tasty)! Our service was very attentive with lots of smiles! We will definitely be back!
There were six ladies. We got the round table that was requested. We lingered over our dinners and desserts. We sat there for a total of three hours visiting. We were never made to feel like it was time for us to move on. We get together monthly and all felt this was our most enjoyable dinner out.
Trio has been one of our go-to restaurants over the years, having celebrated our 10th Wedding anniversary party there, offering really good meals at reasonable prices. Our recent private Christmas dinner was a disappointment relative to the standards of the past. From the beginning, the evening lacked something to be desired. We walked in greeted by a somewhat inept teenager in teenager clothes, to the position we were seated (last booth to the left of the bar), to the unfriendly, crabby older lady, to the unusual quality of our crab cakes and pasta penne dinners that are our traditional favorites, to leaving not giving our usual 20+% tip, we had to declare our Christmas dinner a significant disappointment. It will be a while before we try again. Too bad!.
Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a night out Christmas week for our wedding anniversary. Our waitress was excellent and timely despite how busy the restaurant was. Whether steak (me) or seafood (wife), the quality of the dishes was excellent. Our appetizers were delivered on time and piping hot. Our entrees were wonderful. Desserts are homemade and we shared ours. Lastly, you simply can't beat the price! We highly recommend Trio's and we'll be back!
Our waiter Matt was the best server I've had since moving to Charlotte. Food was also spot on this time, delicious. We used to go here all the time but took along break from Trio's after an mediocre experience and a terrible waitress, happy to say it is back again on our regular list.
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.
