.

My fiancee and I went to Trio Saturday night without reservations. Got seated quickly, so that was good. By the time our waiter came over, we already knew what we wanted, so we placed our orders. Two apps (veggie spring rolls and chicken satay) and two entrees (drunken noodles with chicken, and chicken with green curry).

It took over an hour for the apps to arrive. The waiter came once (at about the 45 minute mark) to say the kitchen was backed up and he was sorry about the wait.

Finally the apps arrived, and we ate them quickly as we were starving. Then another long wait for our entrees to arrive, during which time we had no visits from our waiter. When dinner finally arrived, he said "Would you like to share? I can bring two plates?"

"Yes," we said. "We'd like that." We didn't see our waiter again for the rest of the meal. After picking at the food for about 15 minutes (a lot of this time he spent at a neighboring table but was not available as I tried to get his attention), I ended up eating off the tiny bread plate the rice was served on.

Again, we ate quickly, as we were hungry after the long waits. We wanted the meal to be done, so we tried to signal our waiter a couple times as he waited on other tables, trying to get our check. He ignored each attempt. My frustration must have been pretty visible, since a waitress saw me and said "Would you like your check?" When I said I would, she said "I've seen that look before." (Not sure if it was from other people our waiter was assisting, but I don't think I'll ever know the answer to that.)

When the bill arrived, magically our waiter appeared. He looked irritated that we had gotten our bill. (By the way, nothing had been comped.)

"Can't I get you something else? Dessert? You shouldn't leave without getting something for free."

I told him "No, I think we're done tonight." He gave a faint apology and walked away. We left him a 10 percent tip (which was probably more than he earned.)

I might go back again some time, but not for a little while, and I sure as hell don't want to sit in that guy's station ever again.

Pros: Good food.

Cons: Service sucked.

This was the second time my husband and I went here. The first time was two years ago and the service and food were very disappointing. We went on a slow night, the service was horrible, our appetizer was burnt and the food was mediocre so we did not go back. Then friends said they went recently and had a good meal so we checked out the reviews and decided to give it another chance.

We went back last night with 3 friends. 3 out of 5 of us ordered appetizers/soup and two of us received our soup and appetizer at the same time. The third person had to wait about 10 mins for his to come out. In the mean time, the food runner tried to deliver two entrees to us that were actually for a different table. That was ok, mistakes happen and we could understand his appetizer not coming out on time. But then dinner came and only 4 out of the 5 meals were delivered at the same time. Hence, the table waited to eat their meal until the 5th person received theirs which did not come for another 5 minutes in which time everyone else??s meals were cold. Rather than the kitchen holding everyone's dinner back so that all 5 meals were delivered at the same time or at the very least the server letting us know that it was going to be ?? x? amount of time before the 5th person got their meal, no one said anything and we just sat waiting.

Two people got pad Thai which they said was ok but somewhat bland. Another person got the pineapple rice with shrimp. She said the flavor of her meal was good but was disappointed with the amount of shrimp served vs. the amount of rice. At the end of the meal the server gave us a bill for a different table. We just felt that overall the food was mediocre and the kitchen and service staff seem very disorganized. We cannot recommend this restaurant in good faith.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, price, byob

Cons: Mediocre food and service

I am not a big fan of Asian fusion, so I jumped on one of their many specials of the night, lamp chops. They were absolutely delicious, which is an achievement given that this is not their specialty. My friends who did partake in the signature food could not stop raving about how good it was.

This is a BYOB. The waitstaff was attentive, even to our group of 10. Prices were reasonable for the portions.

Call for a reservation on the weekend.

So I just moved into the area from New York. I have had my fair share of "Thai" and "fusion" restaurants, and Trio single handily wins my heart. I have been to other restaurants in the area (Rembrandt, Jacks, Umai?!?) and have realized that Trio is the gem that is hidden in the nooks of the Fairmount area, also I just found out they deliver!! The beggars pouches are quite delicious, especially dipped in sweet sauce that comes with it. So light and crispy, but simply delicious. I have to add the chicken curry as well, make sure you ask for 3 stars if you like it spicy. The tender strips of chicken smothered in a green coconut curry could not get any better. I have also noticed a strain of amazing homemade desserts, which I must say, keep on keeping on, or something like that. I highly recommend Trio, especially if you are looking for a quaint, laidback BYO.

Had my Valentine's dinner here with the lady and it was perfect. The lamb shank was perfectly spiced and fork tender. The lady had the Seabass and she oooh'd and aaah'd as she ate it. The service was great considering it was a packed house. It really is a great date place. We had started with the soup of the day which was seafood chowder that rivaled some I've had in New England. It all ended with these coconut crepes with bananas fosters that may very well be the best dessert I've ever had. The homemade ice cream was what made it. We will be back, and most likely very soon, per the lady.

Wow, in the interest of public health, whoever is cooking at Trio ought to find a new line of work pronto.

We ordered take-out on the basis of a walk-by tour of this Fairmount restaurant (we're new residents) showing an unambitious menu that should have been easy to get right. But no.

The calamari salad, pallid rings of off-tasting squid, rested atop a shredded pile of greens that seemed to have been rescued from a compost pile. One taste and into the trash.

Chicken satay: an arid, overcooked nightmare rife with tangy chemicals. The peanut sauce was ok, but utterly bland.

If there's one dish a (sort of) Thai place has to do reasonably well, it's Pad Thai. Trio's version, is a greasy, glutinous, oversweetened mess of rice noodles and bean sprouts ... what more is there to say?

And Trio's not cheap: the dishes mentioned above totaled more than $40.

OK, maybe living for years in San Francisco, where Thai spots a million times better than Trio are commoner than lesbian bikers may have spoiled me, but really.

Rating: how many negative stars are in the sky?

Hidden in the art museum area, this restaurant has a very diverse menu of great Asian fusion type food. Their menu is even vegetarian/vegan friendly for those who aren't meat eaters. Wait staff is friendly and prompt. They also offer delivery and take out. Prices are reasonable for the portion size. I recommend the portobella coconut soup and the crispy basil tofu (not on their typical menu). One of my favorite restaurants in Philly!

Went to Trio for our Terror Behind the Walls dinner package and it was very very good. The atmosphere is very relaxing and warm and the food was awesome. I had the lamb shank and my girlfriend had the seafood combination. We also had beggars bags appetizer which we loved and our squash soups were delicious. I can't say enough good things about it. The service was great and the owner was very gracious as well. One nice touch I noticed that you don't see much, they had actual cloth hand towels in the restrooms in addition to the normal paper towels. Thanks for a great dining experience! I wish Trio was in my neighborhood.

I had high hopes for this thai restaurant, unfortunately I ended up being rather dissapointed. The service was extremely poor as it took over forty five minutes to receive our meal even though it was not a crowded sunday evening. The crab baggers appetizer was the highlight of the meal as the sauce was unique and was very pleasing. My seafood claypot was poor on the side of not having much seafood in it at all and my girlfriends pad thai was bland at best. Perhaps it was just an off night or I ordered poorly, but the service combined with the bland offerings made for a dissapointing dining event.

I am a repeat customer of this wonderful BYO in the Art Museum area for their wonderful food and friendly service. Tonight, however, I felt they outdid themselves (in a good way!) when I ordered delivery. The owner who took my order forgot to pack my drink, which I did not realize until after the delivery man left my house. They didn't charge me for it, so I just enjoyed the rest of my meal without that part. Not an hour later, there was a knock at the door--the delivery man returned, very apologetic, with not only my Thai Iced Tea, but dessert that they included "for my troubles." This is the kind of attentiveness that makes this restaurant one of my favorites in the area.

Where do I begin? I love this little BYO. The staff are generally exceptional and the food is always great. The duck special changes daily and I highly reccomend trying it each time! The three owners are always gracious for the business and welcome you every time.

Service can at times be slow, but it in no way ruins the meal. They let you relax and enjoy not only the meal but the experience like a good BYO should. Overall, I cant say enough about Trio. It is one of our favorites in the city and once you try it, I bet you will feel the same.

So you get a better idea of what service and quality to expect when you go to Trio..Here are other BYOs in the city I like..Figs (Fairmount), Radicchio Cafe (N. Liberties), Robertos Cafe (South St), Audrey Claire, Mercato..and many more. Hope this helps!!!

My GF and I, along with a 'blind-date couple' made our way to Trio on a wed. night prior to checking out the Terror Behind the Walls at the Penitentiary a few blocks away. We were greeted at the door of the quaint corner eatery warmly, I believe one of the owners was in the first room and thanked us for coming. We were led upstairs to the upper dining room and past the doors to the outside deck (which was buzzing, as far as romantic, second-level dining decks can be buzzin for a mid-october weekday night). In fact, i believe the deck was full. That clued me in that this would be a place i would probably enjoy, since so many others were on this wednesday night. We were seated and our wine was accomodated (BYOB) by the waitress. (I wish i remeber her name, she was a good one; young, pleasant and attentive, wasn't putting up a fake persona in order to serve us, I liked that) We order from a special menu, themed to match our haunted prison excersion. Unbenounced to me, the two 'blindies' weren't fans of Thai/French cuisine. Actually, they had never had it before which i learned as we looked over the menus and listened to the extensive list of specials, all of which i wanted to order. I settled on the escargot puff pastry (called Prison Riot i belive) for an appetizer. (the others: chicken satay, dumplings, and a summer type roll) I tried them all, i'm an exotic foods buff and the escargot was superb. The zingy, buttery sauce was exactly how it should be. Delicious. I will say the summer roll was a bit overpowered by lemongrass however. The main course i ordered a ribeye special, soy marinated and topped with blue cheese, my counterpart got the (witches Caldron) a mix of cellofane noodles and seafood in a spicy broth. We ended up switching dishes (his choice) and i was delighted. I could have eaten anythign on the table. I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS, THIS PLACE WAS TOP NOTCH, i will be back to venture around the non-prison food menu. THANK YOU.

I stopped in with my boyfriend for a nice meal on Saturday night. There were at least 10 open tables and we were promptly seated and greeted by our server who took my order for hot tea and our meal orders. The appetizers, steamed seafood dumplings and portobello mushrooms in curried coconut milk, arrived within minutes and were quite good. Thirty minutes passed before we saw our waiter, who finally refreshed our waters, but no explanation was given for the delay. Twenty minutes later, after the 2 other tables who arrived after us were served, our entrees arrived. I ordered my veal medium, my boyfriend's medium rare. After cutting into the meat, we found both our cuts were very well done. Our server took 10 minutes to check on us, but assured us it would take only 8 minutes to recook our meals (why it took an hour in the first place, I'm not sure). Another 15 minutes passed before our plates came, and while the meat was less well done, the medium rare was barely pink, the medium was only pink near the bone and the vegetables were dry and chewy. Requesting a fork and refills from our server, he filled our waters and completely forgot the fork. Eventually I took one from an empty table to finish my meal. Not once during our meal did the manager stop by our table to check on the recooked dishes and it seemed to be too much to ask the server to refresh my tea, which had understandably gone cold after an hour and a half of waiting for our meals. When the check arrived, I disappointed to find that there would be no visit from the manager and we were charged for our full meals, of which I only finished half. As we left the restaurant, the manager waved his apologies to us from an empty table he sat at with another employee. I understand that things can go wrong in the kitchen, but it's no excuse for the very poor customer service. A simple table visit could have made this unpleasant experience much more tolerable. I won't be recommending this to friends.

Pros: Outdoor patio, quick seating, reasonable prices

Cons: Poor customer service, parking, close-set tables: no privacy, can get loud

This was my first visit to a thai restaraunt. It surpassed every expectation. The atmosphere is clean, sleek, and romantic. It has a relaxed pace. The food is outstanding. The prices are even more outstanding. This quickly became my favorite BYOB and I have since become a regular.

I had been to TRIO a few times before and really loved the food and atmosphere. When it came time to plan my wedding dinner, it was an easy decision to make. We had a small party, about 16 total. The owners went out of their way to accommodate us. They provided us use of their third floor special occasion room and even worked with me to create a menu that I wanted, even though the choices I made were not included in one of their standard packages. They even agreed to include one of the specials I had had on a previous visit that was so great, I couldn?t not have it at my wedding. The server, Shane, was extremely polite and accommodating. My friends remarked on how much they enjoyed the food and the room was perfect for our needs. I highly recommend TRIO for anyone who would like a romantic dinner date, a get together with friends or even a special occasion event. The owners couldn?t have been more helpful, the staff was outstanding and the food was fabulous. One of the best BYO?s in the city.

we have dined here on two separate occasions mid-week and neither time has the restaurant been packed. this, in no way, is a reflection of the quality of the food and/or service. we just didn't find it to be as crowded as expected after reading the online reviews. although most entrees and apps are thai-inspired or straight up thai, there are many creative dishes available to those who don't have such seasoned palates. the restaurant's menu appears small but they offer plenty of daily specials to suit many tastes. the dishes are tasty and portions are plentiful. service is also an A+. i have only dined here during during the winter but can't wait for the spring so that we can have a late dinner on the second floor deck, which looks romantic and quaint.

My husband and I went on a Tuesday nite and the place was crowded. The food was good and the service, from Miss Lindsay was very nice. The pumpkin soup was good as was my entree of a whit fish with nuts encrusted on top. Tasty! A good find in the neighborhood.

I hosted a wine tasting here and it turned out great. The staff and the food was wonderful. The price was right too. I can't wait to come back. I would reccomend the Beggar's Pouches, Trio house salad, and Port Loin. YUM !!!!!!! This is a Philly gem....

I went to Trio Sunday night (one of the few restaurants open for dinner on a Sunday). We were greeted by a very friendly host. The decor is elegant and understated with orchids and candles on each table. We had a choice to sit on one of the tables on the ground floor or go one floor up. Upstairs there is a nice seating area indoors and a beautiful patio deck garlanded with ivy and tea lights at night. As the sun set, the outdoor lights went on and the room lights went up a little to create an overall effect that was very romantic.

Our waiter was quite nice and the selection of food was amazing. I had a delicious pad thai and my friend ordered the duck garnished with roasted cashews, pineapple and mushrooms. Delicious hint of garlic in the back of the dish. We also had the sweet corn fritters (unbelievable) and a chicken satay. The bill for the two of us was less than $50 and well worth it. The entire staff goes out of their way to make sure you're enjoying yourself without being in your face about it. Great atmosphere, food and prices. Remember that it's byob - we brought a nice chianti with us. It's relatively new to the area so do yourself a favor and check it out before the crowds discover this little gem.
