For the first time in all the times I have been going to Trio, my experience was less than satisfactory. We arrived at 7 and our order was taken quickly. With the exception of my husband's soup, we waited over 45 min for our lobster salad sandwich and truffle fries. There were very few people in the restaurant. The lobster is usually served with no dressing and that is what I love about their sandwich, it's on the side. The truffle fries were a poor imitation. After waiting all that time and food is not as as you know it to be is disappointing. It appeared that the chefs Sunday nite were not as experienced .Disappointing meal. I will continue to support Trio,hopefully Sunday nite was just a fluke.

I had the swordfish special and my husband had the tuna. Both were great. We both started with French onion soup which was also very good. Service was attentive and server was really pleasant. Very tempted by deserts but simply too full to partake.

I have been to Trio many times in the past and have gotten wonderful food and great service, however I was very disappointed with my food this time. I ordered the filet mignon and it was very subpar. When I first received it, it was very undercooked and just not to the same standards of past trips. I sent it back to be cooked longer and it lost all of the flavor.

We had a very nice table by the fireplace. The only negative is that I felt some portions were small. The steak portion in particular was very small. It was served with garlic green beans and fries, which were excellent. My salmon portion was fine but the pureed cauliflower and braised cabbage served under it was very small and cold. The French onion soup was excellent but pricy at $8

Trio food is really going downhill. Trio had been great for years, then became inconsistent, and our last experience was that food was very poor. The bolognese, a signature dish, was dry and mostly pasta, the burger was ordered medium but came out raw in the middle, and the fries were soggy. So a very disappointing experience. Too bad.

For the fish lover, lots of options. Including apps like stuffies (five small clams vs. one big one.) For non-pescatarian, not so much. Pizzas a good option. Other entrees, like Nashville Hot Chicken, disappoint. Food sometimes overcooked (reheated from freezer?). Drinks and wine glass menu very nice. So I'd recommend, but with a careful eye on what is ordered. Experience may be the only guide.

I wish there were more menu selections suited to my tastes but then, I am a very fussy eater. I had the chicken parmesan but I was hesitant to order it because I think I recalled ordering it several years ago and not liking it. As soon as I took a bite, I knew why I didn't like it before. The chicken was very bland and too thick for parmesan. I like the kind where it is pounded very thin. The chicken was not seasoned before dipping it in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. I could not eat it. However, the linguine and red sauce that accompanied was very good. It tasted like fresh pasta and the sauce had just the right amount of flavor and acidity. My husband had the simply prepared scallops. He said they were okay but thought for sea scallops they were kind of small. 5 came to the order. We use to come here a lot but over the years the food quality has been inconsistent. I had a few old time favorites that are no longer on the menu. Not sure we will be going back any time soon unless the menu changes or I am in the mood for a steak, which in the past has not disappointed.
