After reading reviews about this establishment, our first visit came with high expectations.
King Street Trio exceeded all and We look forward to returning.
We were greeted by a charming and witty host, and he made an immediate connection with us. Brian was the best host we have ever encountered and as the evening went on we learned he was owner/operator and his involvement and passion towards hospitality shows and translates through his exceptional staff.
Alex, our server, provided recommendations and checked regularly while also allowing for us to enjoy our date without much interruption.
The food was spectacular and cooked to perfection! I would highly recommend mahi mahi (it was a feature) as it was one of the best meals I’ve had in some time. The food is high quality with great presentation, and you will not go hungry as the potions are generous. Filo wrapped vanilla cheesecake and strawberry and rhubarb tart dessert were vastly different yet both delicious, I cannot pick a favourite.

The overall ambience of the restaurant was very inviting and relaxing.

This restaurant gets top ratings across the board! If you’re looking for a classy yet modern restaurant with excellent service, great food and drinks - for any occasion: date, birthday or graduation, work celebration or girls night out - You need not look any further. King Street Trio will not disappoint.

I don’t rate many places but this place is a keeper. Buried in a corner in downtown Waterloo, it looks nondescript from outside however once you walk in, the ambiance will hit you and the service is top shelf. Great food and the Truffle MAC and Cheese is the best Mac and cheese I have ever had.

Great experience. Will definitely go back. From accommodating us with our late arrival, to being met by the manager/owner and checked in on just enough, to the great food, an overall exceptional time.

AMAZING! Our new favourite spot for fine dining. The Open Kitchen made dining a unique and interesting experience. Interaction with the chef and cooks was delightful. All of the staff went above and beyond to make our evening enjoyable. And now the FOOD! From the standpoint of a true FOODIE, this is the best meal I have had in the region. We have never tasted calarmari this tender and delicious in all of our travels, including the Pacific and Atlantic coasts. Even my Mom, who hates calamari, loved it. If you like calamari you MUST try this dish. If they were open for lunch I would go and only eat that. But how, with so many other tantalizing dishes. It is the best Tartar I have tasted. The lamb is bursting with flavour and incredibly tender, the gnocchi are like pillows from heaven, the duck delectable, the risotto amazing and the trout cooked to perfection. I had heard that they tried to take the cheesecake off the menu but customers wouldn’t let them. I am so thankful because it is the most exquisite dessert I have ever tasted. The value was also a pleasant surprise. A restaurant of this caliber normally has a hefty price tag. We travel extensively, have eaten at the finest resorts and restaurants and are very picky. We are simply thrilled to have discovered this unpretentious, hidden gem.

We went for our anniversary dinner and The King Street Trio was AMAZING. The food, atmosphere, and service were definitely 5 stars all the way across the board! We started off with a couple cocktails and then tried the Rockefeller oysters. If I had anything that wasn’t 5 stars to say it would just be this but that’s because our preference was raw oysters and we just wanted to try it. Next we slurped back a couple of their daisy bay oysters with horseradish and their house honey chilli lime sauce and man they were so great! For our entrées my partner had the lamb and I had the duck. His was so nicely braise with a medley of asparagus and peas in what I think was a risotto, definitely stole a bunch of his food because it was really delicious and guarded mine. The Lavender braised duck was so delicious. Cooked to a perfect medium for me and all of the sauces and rhubarb paired beautifully. After we were done food-gasming, for our anniversary they gave us a cute mint chocolate ice cream sandwich and we also ordered their FILO wrapped cheesecake which by the end they had to roll us out the doors. All of our food was so wonderful and delicious and the service was awesome, constantly refilling water, quality checking us, and ensuring everything was in its right place I fully would return and recommend it here!

We had a lovely time at KST and for the most part enjoyed the experience. I will be back but this particular visit had some issues I didn't appreciate.

1) The food. Everyone else really enjoyed their food, I was th only one who didn't enjoy my plate. I trust that the chef carefully planned his menu and had his reasons for combining the flavors that he did but the risotto that cam with the lamb shank I ordered was very sour and acidic. It didn't match the robust and rich flavor of the meat.

2) The service. We had a prompt and attentive server, that's to be sure. However she was pretty blind to what was happening at the table. Particularly when my mother was trying to open her gifts for her 60th birthday and the server was reaching over and across her (and all of us) to clear side plates. None of our food was even close to arriving, please pay more attention to what's happening at the table as this really spoiled the moment of my mum opening a rather expensive gift we had gotten her.

Otherwise the restaurant is professional and always a fun experience. Despite this past visit. I will be returning again soon.

Disappointed to be informed after being seated of no less than three changes to the current website menu, particularly the removal of pickerel which we had looked forward to having. Nice ambience and good service, but did not find the entrees outstanding. Also, Fogo cod @ $39 is too high ... Halibut at that price yes, but not cod!)

We came here to celebrate our daughter's birthday and, as usual, the food was excellent. My one disappointment was they did not serve soup that night, I was in the mood for soup, however, the crab cakes were a very nice starter.

The servers are really attentive and always kept our water glasses full without any prompting. They always make everyone feel welcome.

This place is a bit pricier than some Uptown restaurants but you really do get what you pay for here in this case so we don't mind coming here for special occasions or on a Monday when they have discounts on food.
