We enjoyed a wonderful brunch outside and the food and service was excellent. A must do when visiting SLC!

Cafe Trio has become a staple in our family. From the trio flat bread to the delicious meatball and polenta appetizer. The food is a good change and the combinations will surprise you.

I have always loved Cafe Trio, but this recent experience has tarnished my opinion. Went for Sunday brunch. Our party of three was seated (by our request) inside, and the server assigned to our table was apparently having too much fun outside to bother to greet us. We got water and menus and then waited until we had to ask... More

This was a second visit. Once again the service was embarrassingly horrid. Employees do not appear to have any training or to know definitively what their assigned duties are...with the exception of the boy who only had to pour water. I'd suggest that the person making Irish Coffee maybe be a coffee drinker. The menu is too innovative. They don't... More

It wasn't the greatest service or food. We went for a small reunion but most everyone was disappointed. The Parmesan flat bread was outstanding!

Good place for a business lunch or a lunch date. Service is excellent and the menu gives plenty of choices. Daily soup is always delicious. I'm here 2-4 times a month because I really like it!

A group of friends meets four times a year to celebrate birthdays occurring during the quarter. For the April-May-June birthday event, I made reservations at Cafe Trio--Cottonwood. The location, the parking, the private room were the main features for choosing the restaurant. Well, as of tonight, I can add another plus. We enjoyed a great server: from order-taking to separate... More

This place was hard to find. Friends gave us the address and our GPS took us to an area filled with lots of businesses scattered throughout a hodgepodge of a parking lot. After stopping to ask someone, we were told it was "the orange building behind the Hyatt." We circled around to that parking lot but all we saw was... More

Delicious food and beverages, our server was extremely sweet and helpful, and the prices were not over the top. We would return!

Friends made a reservation at Trio, so I returned after a long hiatus. I guess I had gotten bored with it at some point, but I am glad I ended up going back. First, this is a great patio with great shade and the patio service is just the right level of attentive. Our foursome started with a snap peas... More
