I would recommend TRIO, but with the caveat that it is a bit loud with the hardwood floors, "hard finish" to the walls and sound reflective ceilings (and often a piano playing near the bar area). Otherwise a good choice.

Went here for a friend's birthday dinner. We ordered the burrata to share and both ended up getting the halibut. The burrata was one of the best I ever had and I had to force myself to leave some of the entree to take home to my husband. The piano was delightful and the seats were oh-so-comfortable, I can't wait to go back to this restaurant!

My friend Carol’s birthday. And it was terrific. We dined with friends and everything was perfect. The food terrific (best crab cakes I ever ate) and the service impeccable.
A great evening and not ridiculously expensive.

We celebrated our birthday and had excellent service. We enjoy sharing so shared 2 appetizers, a salad and one entree and ended up bringing much of the entree home. Everything was delicious and our service was impeccable. We were comped with Prosecco and an after dinner cupcake to acknowledge our Anniversary....a very nice touch.

It was the perfect place to take my friend to celebrate her birthday. Starting at the bar, Matt made our drinks and suggested a perfect appetizer to share. When we were seated for dinner, we asked our waiter to ask Matt for a suggestion on wine. Matt came to our table with an option that was excellent! Hall Merlot 2016

The tuna tartare nachos were a lovely, light bite on a hot night. And my husband’s pappradelle was incredible. Thin, tender, and a perfect vehicle for the beef bolognese. Really delicious.

All the food we ordered was nicely presented and tasted great! Crab cakes, gnocchi, halibut, short ribs. calamari app was crispy and not greasy.

The only issue was the music volume, both coming in from the speakers and also the Friday night piano. We were not not near the piano and it was still loud! Speakers piping in recorded music was so loud that we had a hard time hearing our server offer the menu. Feel like it should be background music and not the main event at a restaurant...

Fantastic service, beautiful decor and design, great wine list, and many food options.
The burrata and scallops were top notch. The Pork Milanese was not their best showing. While above average, it was not as stellar as the rest of the meals at our table.
Overall a 4.5* restaurant. Will visit again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Trio.
The oysters on the half shell are fresh, cold & refreshing. The Sweet Jesus are delicious. We also enjoyed entrees of Wild caught Halibut over small potatoes & a corn remoulade, flounder over green beans & small potatoes. Nothing was left on any plate. Strawberry ice cream was perfect to share to end our meal. The bar has many interesting cocktails & a varied wine list. Our server Josh made our meal perfect. Thank you

This was our first visit and we were impressed. The restaurant was well attended for a Friday evening and was nice and quiet just the way we like it. It was moderately busy but not loud and noisy. We could actually have a delicious meal and enjoy our conversation with friends without feeling we had to shout. The food was outstanding. My compliments to the chef and staff. Definitely plan to return.

Took my wife here for her birthday and the food was great. I had the red wine braised short rib and she had the scallops. Service was excellent. The in house piano player was an excellent touch. We had fun picking out all the songs he was playing. It’s a little expensive but worth the extra money. Will definitely be returning!
