I would recommend Trio for a pleasant and comfortable experience. The service here is always very good. We have never felt rushed and have had any questions about the menu answered promptly.

Our experience was excellent. As a disabled woman this is the most accessible restaurant I have ever been to. The staff was super friendly and I never felt like I was being stared at. The food was excellent and the server gave us excellent suggestions. Would definitely recommend it!

I think in the future small parties should not be seated near large parties. I could barely hear my husband because the table in back of us seating 8 people was terribly loud.

Excellent calamari. Scallops wonderfully fresh. Flank steak came with too many potatoes; choice of rice or quinoa would be welcome. Nice wines. Lovely hostess and waitress service.

We really loved our experience at Trio. The pizza was an excellent starter! My son and husband had the flat iron steak and cleaned their plates. I had the scallops and thought it was excellent! They were pan seared to perfection! For dessert we had the Crème brûlée and it was the perfect ending to a fantastic meal! Everyone working there is delightful and the ambiance is cozy. I can not wait to return!!!

I’ve been to Trio many times in the past and always had a very good meal. Don’t know what happened recently. I ordered the Tomato basil pizza and it tasted like a frozen grocery store pizza that they heated up . My friend had fish and chips and there was way more breading than fish. Very disappointed.

What is usually a splendid experience was not so much this time around. The restaurant was busy but our server was extremely inattentive. We had to call out to her to get her attention even when she was close to our table. Three surrounding tables received their food before us even after being seated afterwards. We asked about the food after a very long time and it arrived one minute later, barely like warm. The calamari was delicious but very small for the price so we don’t feel the overall value was great. I ordered a bottle of wine and our server brought the wrong varietal entirely.

Have changed menu for the worst recently and in the past year. No more roasted cod with risotto, which myself and my parents would go in and order all year long, and has been gone for a long time and now have blackened cod with fingerlings. Awful change. Also filet mignon gone for a long time. I would only order a burger at this point. Is not finer dining anymore unfortunately

We are locals but this was our first time dinning at Trio. A Monday night in October and the place was 75% occupied, maybe 100% considering COVID protocols. Great service and attention from the staff, Hostess, Manager and the most important our server. She had a great sense of humor, overall good advice and when she didn't know the answer she admitted it and went to get an answer.
My wife had the pasta Bolognese and I had the simply prepared Cod. Both very good and the right size portions. Trio offers a simply prepared 6 option menu, which for me is a blessing since a current health issue requires a less spicy diet.
We will be back!

First visit to Trio. No formal gluten free menu, but many dishes can be made gluten free. Food was tasty. My husband enjoyed his salad with steak. I had the steak with potatoes, which was also enjoyable. I would return again. I hear the gluten free pizza is good.
