We had a wonderful three course meal at King Street Trio. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious! The chef has such a talent for creating beautiful dishes and our server could speak to each dish and give us appropriate suggestions and insight. The chef took a minute out of his very busy night to introduce himself and make sure that we enjoyed every aspect of our meal. We had an outstanding time, and we would highly recommend dining here!

I have said it before and will say it again, this is by far the best restaurant in Waterloo. The food is awesome, the staff is great and the decorum is relaxing. If you want a good meal go to the Keg, if you want a great meal you have to come here.

Food was good. The restaurant was full with people so it was festive. We went on a Friday evening, so the average spending indicated by websites-- $30 and less was an understatement.

This restaurant is so good! My boyfriend and I went for a date night and we shared the calamari to start. We enjoyed some red wine with our entrees as well. I had the halibut and he had the trout special. So delicious! The ambiance of the restaurant is really cute, has a open kitchen concept and you can see the cooks prepare your meal because of the mirrors on the ceiling which i thought was pretty cool! If you haven't checked it out, you should go!

Excellent food!
4 of us went to celebrate our anniversaries! We sat right beside the chef’s station and could watch them cook! The chefs were funny and social and made it a point to socialize with us.
Apps were delicious. We got 4 different ones and split them. The only disappointment was the ravioli app- came with only 5 TNIY pieces ... compared to the calamari which was 3-4 times the size and amount of food. Apps and dinner was served promptly our coffee came 15 min later BUT our dessert did not come to the table for another 10-15 after our coffee’s were long gone !!
Otherwise great! And we will be back !
Great venu if you are going to the Princess Theatre.

Our meal was amazing! The only part that I would say needed some improvement was the crab cakes. Me and my wife both felt that the sauce was excellent but that the cakes themselves lacked a bit of flavouring. Will definitely be back to try some of the other dishes that they have!!

King Street Trio is and will most likely stay on my Top list for places to eat in Waterloo. From the top tier service from the staff to the wonderful host who makes you feel at home from the moment you enter the door. Oh, and the food is kind of awesome too. Keep up the great work and see you again very soon!

Love the place!!! Great food, great service and great atmosphere.

We two couples went there on Friday night...We had calamari and crab cake for appetizer. Calamari was fresh and tender! Love it. We tried oyster and it’s not bad...We had lamb and duck meat for our main course. Highly recommend both of them. Lamb and duck meat were well cooked (medium rare for duck meat?)....tasted juicy and delicate. As for dessert, we had the cheesecake and it was amazing!!!

Its about 50-ish per person. Yup we highly recommend the place...good for a date or any special event....will definitely go visit the restaurant a second time! !

Dined here on a Tuesday night. The food was very good. The presentation was nice and most of the dishes had a pleasant flavour. Some parts of the meal were over/under salted. Tortellini appetizer was very nice except for the fact that the tortellini shells were slightly under cooked. Overall we had a wonderful dinner and a lovely experience. There is a discount when you dine on Monday-Wed, which is a bonus! Would come back again and recommend to others :)

My wife and I always enjoy dining at King Street Trio. There is great ambiance, the chefs know what they are doing and do it with verve, and the food is delicious. Price-wise it is on par with other similar upscale eateries, but none have the convenient location of being in uptown Waterloo, just a few minutes walk from the Princess Cinemas, so making for a nice evening out.
