Four of us dined to celebrate some birthdays. Trio has been a part of the Cincinnati restaurant scene for years and it's no wonder. In a business with seemingly constant changes Trio remains true to its roots as a dining destination with excellent food, service and ambiance. Our server tonight was Joyce and she was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about... More

The food was okay though quite bland. Very few young people there, mostly older well established crowd. The waitstaff was great. Expensive meal. The atmosphere was quite, low lit, with nice facilities. We probably wont be back.

While in the Kenwood area of Cincinnati we had dinner at Trios Bistro two evenings. It is a cozy local restaurant with great service, atmosphere, and food. We had the divers scallops with grilled asparagus, grouper sliders, and wedge salad - all were excellent. They offer both small and larger servings of a number of entrees which we appreciated. Our...

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

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

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
