The service was good and the food was simple but excellent. Good beers and ok wines. We had dinner outside and enjoyed the wonderful spring weather. The are is reasonably quiet, so noise was not an issue for dining outside. They even have heaters in the ceiling that they can turn on in case the evening becomes a bit chilly!

My husband and I had the BEST bunch at Trio during out visit to DC. Stephanie made incredible mimosas (with a perfectly heavy hand). The food was good, but the service from Stephanie was stellar! I had eggs Benedict with crab meat and asparagus; you could tell the crab meat was fresh. My husband had Belgian waffles, which were nice... More

On our way to Agora we passed this placed and decided to check it out (Agora has a terrible hostesses ). This place offers what you look for in a brunch menu. I had the Benedict with steak with a side of buttermilk pancakes, beyond yummy. (Just the right amount of grease) Great customer service, ambience, menu with reasonable prices

We were in DC and have heard of the great restaurants so we went searching in this trendy district. We tried a few other specialty places that all had long waits. We went past Trio and it was not particularly busy. Usually not a good sign but we were getting pretty hungry. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess... More

Really like this place. The food is good (I've tried both the fish and chips and the huge nachos), the service is great, with very friendly waitresses and the prices are the best in the block. Recommend it!

A wonderful site sitting on the corner of "its freezing outside and sheesh its cold in DC" Wonderful menu and even nicer drinks. I wasn't doing back flips over the fish & chips but the beef short ribs and salads were hits. Nachos were tasty and filling. May not come back for dinner but appetizer and drinks will resonate with... More

The food was excellent, we visited three times while on our trip, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were never disappointed. Staff was friendly, we dined outside on the patio, it was a bit cool but they had overhead heat lamps for the guests.

Ive been going to Trios for probable 20 years. Never a favorite but just convenient and predictable. New management since I left DC five years ago has improved my opinion greatly. 1; New furnishings on the patio, I doesn't feel like an afterthought any more, indeed it feels slightly Parisian. 2; Greatly improved food...really. The Calamari was finally light with... More
