Romantic atmosphere. Great place to take clients. Pricey though so for us it's a special occasion place. Food was amazing - well worth the price paid.

We have been to this restaurant several times and found them to be attentive and serving good quality dishes. They offer early week specials which allow seafood lovers to enjoy crab and oysters for a discount. The menu is small and is tweeked occasionally. We will continue to frequent the restaurant and hope other people will give them a try... More

Any of the seafood dishes have proven to be divine. The sauce on the zucchini linguini is really Smokey and didnt compliment the dish in my opinion. The wine list is well made but the cocktails weren't the best. I'll give the benefit of the doubt to the barman and say it must have been his first day. Lovely service... More

Never dine here without an oyster appetizer. Very reasonable for quality and you can order just a few to try if you've never had the pleasure. Pair with a dry vodka martini with lemon zest - the height of sophistication ;) Service is warm and wonderful. This is an independent place, a boutique restaurant with a hip urban design and...

We first tried king street trio about 2 years ago while visiting from Winnipeg. Since then we have eaten here every time I have visited the area. The staff have always been amazing and welcoming. This time we had the apple strudel brie appetizer, it was amazing. For dinner we shared a ribeye and the truffle mac and cheese. Both... More

Stumbled upon this place with my boyfriend. The gentleman who seated us was quick, attentive and sat us at a nice private table around 9pm. Atmosphere is great and decor is beautiful. Open concept kitchen is awesome. I ordered red wine which was good, boyfriend ordered an old fashioned which was very underwhelming. Needless to say I don't think that... More

Food was amazing ( I had the duck) and the waiter was kind and helpful with wine choices (but maybe a bit TOO attentive?). The appetizers and desserts were also good. 4 stars because it was a 100$ meal for 2 people even with their 25% discount. Great place though, nice and quiet at least on a tuesday night :p

Deciding on a place to eat in Downtown Waterloo - my recommendation is to avoid King Street Trio. Have been there on a couple occasions now. Steak was overdone, potatoes were "coolish/cold" and the wine was extremely flat. The restaurant is only open evenings and the seating is limited - you would think the extra attention o detail would result... More

The food here is absolutely amazing. I've been a few times before, but the food this time was really exceptional. I had the glazed mackerel and my partner had the 1/2 rack of lamb. Both were delicious. We shared the cheesecake for dessert, which was just about the best cheesecake I've ever had. The only critique I could offer would... More
