This is one of Cincinnati's hidden gems. It is popular with a more mature crowd that values the mixture of good food, pleasant ambience and decent service. Food is always fresh and well prepared. The lunch time crowd is a picture of business people and well-healed seniors and seniors who value the privacy afford by the booths in the main... More

There were 8 of us here for a birthday celebration and it was perfect. We made reservations and everything was ready for us right on time. Lovely atmosphere and wonderful service and food. Our server Bill was amazing and had a wonderful personality. We all enjoyed our meals and I was especially pleased with my choice. I ordered the sweet... More

Most recently we went for brunch with friends. The Bloody Mary's were tasty and a nice start. I had the Goetta Eggs Benidict which was nice local twist on a classic dish. Trio is a Kenwood institution and we have been going for years. There is a core group of "regulars", and there is a reason - the food is... More

Overall we had an awesome experience. Our server Candace was great - pleasant and knowledgeable with perfect timing. Food was tasty. Moroccan Flatbread and beet salad were both unique and delicious. Would definitely recommend!

This is a great spot. I wouldn't go out of your way to eat here, but if you are in the area, it's a very pleasant place to have a meal. And the food is quite good, much much better than most local establishments anywhere.

3 of us dined there last night. Beautiful decor, nice ambiance. Our server was excellent. Large wine list, good pour on the mixed drinks and wine. Pappardelle Bolognese wonderful with good sized portion. Lemon chicken had a large breast, mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic mashed potatoes, lemon caper beurre blanc and was fantastic. The shrimp and scallop scampi was out of sight... More

This restaurant offers an interesting looking menu with diverse choices. I was excited to try the scallops and a brussel sprout side dish. Although good, the scallops numbered four - pretty skimpy for the high price. The Brussel sprout side was large in quantity but greasy. I did enjoy the ahi tuna salad. Was also surprised when we were asked... More

Friendly service and a very warm, inviting restaurant but the food itself was disappointing. Certain elements of our meal like the grouper sliders, rice and key lime pie were delicious. But the burger was too salty and my husbands pork chop was just ok. For the prices we definitely expected a better meal.

We have been frequenting Trio's since they opened - many years ago. Most of the time we leave feeling we had the perfect experience: great service, food, and surroundings. Sometimes they fall short as in our recent visit. We dined with another couple - seated promptly, nice table, excellent server. We ordered drinks while exploring their new menu. We all... More

Trio is located in the Kenwood Shopping area with lots of free parking in the lot beside it. It is nice place, and for a late lunch with the girls, it was perfect. The menu is fairly good but I was disappointed with my choosing. I got the Trio salad and because of the name thought it was probably a... More
