Typically, frequent, regular customers are a business's most valued asset. Not at Cafe Trio. If you have a concern, it's your fault. If something isn't right, it's your problem. And it doesn't matter how many times each month you dine

While I don't think that the food at Trio is bad, it hasn't changed in sooo long. It's always the same old menu. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but time for a new menu already or at least add some new things to the menu. \r

We took our mother to Mother's Day Brunch. We elected to try the loft as we had not been there before. The views of the city and mountains were fabulous, but the climb up the steps was steep and not for the faint of heart. The food was

Pros: Excellent wait staff

Our group was disgusted to find (after taking several sips) that 3 out of our party's 7 people had long, dark hairs in our water! After informing our rather unapologetic waitress, we were asked if we would like new waters...um, hello..YES!?! As we were at a birthday party, we laughed off the situation though it was quite an appetite killer. However, the waitress told us that they would give us free desserts to "make up" for it. During dinner, the "birthday" girl found a large eggshell in her pasta. After the incident with the "hairy" waters, she officially lost her appetite and did not eat any of her meal. Because the waitress had offered free deserts for the fiasco, most of our party ended up ordering them. Once our bills came, however, we found that only a couple of the desserts were comped. We finally asked to speak with the restaurants manager, and after about a half hour of waiting, the manager finally came to our table. After explaining the situation to her we were told, "and what would you like me to do about it?" Now, none of us are that picky of restaurant goers. The whole hairy water thing was quite gross but we all made light of it. However, the obvious lack of concern and deceptive behavior by the staff left our birthday celebration with a bad taste (literally) in our mouths. I don't understand how a restaurant can survive with such bad customer service! There are plenty of other good restaurants with good food AND good service, that I will never put myself through such an experience again!!!

There is nothing subtle about the food here. I don't know what they are trying to achieve, but I am sure if you smoke a pack a day this food will suit your taste buds. The food is not as described on the menu, it is way over seasoned you can't even taste the actual food over the seasonings.. And I am not the type of person who doesn't like spice or interesting flavors. The cauliflower that was meant to be carmelized was really just scorched and hard. Carmelizing is really not that hard to do. I would not recommend this place to anyone, there is very little skill and art in the kitchen. Everything from the first course to the last course was mediocre.

Cons: Overpriced, bad food

When I am heading to Trio (although I DO love the entire menu), I tend to skip dinner and go straight to dessert. The pastry chef is obviously some type of sugar coated super hero! My favorite is Tim's Chocolate Noir Cake. I also adore the Lemon Polenta Pound Cake. If you have a sweet tooth, any Trio will do! I believe the same company owns the downtown spot and also Fresco, because I've seen the beloved "Tim Cake" both other places.

My husband & I eat here once or twice a month & always get pizzas (they are all good!!). I don't think we've even tried anything else on the menu, but everyone we take here loves it regardless of what they get. Make reservations for large groups, as they don't have many large tables & you will wait forever!! The weird thing that I've noticed is that 95% of the people who work there are skinny, young girls. Sexist manager anyone? Kind of creeps me out. And don't bother with valet...the parking lot is right there & I have not seen it full once.

My girlfriend and I went out to a nice dinner at Trio on Saturday 9/22. The dinner was great, but when I got my car car back from the valet boy, it smelled like smoke (not cigarett smoke either), and it looked like he had sneezed dripping snot right on my dashboard. Didn't even try to clean it up. It made me ill and ruined what was a great, fun night out.
Eat and enjoy the food, but find your own parking spot. Valet parking was HORRIBLE!

Pros: Great food!

Cons: Valet makes me want to refund the great food into my lap.

The only reason these kids work valet is for the tips, not to drive your expensive cars- so I think it's unfair that THE VALETS DON'T GET TO KEEP THEIR TIPS- THE RESTAURANT COLLECTS THEM AT THE END OF THE NIGHT. This is the rich stealing from the poor...I guess they already realize that they are going under because their food and service are so bad, so they have to steal from the valets.

The Blt salad is out of this world. I will go there just for the salad! Romaine lettuce, bacon, tomatoes, gorgonzola cheese and gorgonzola dressing. The cheese pizza with the balsamic vinegar dribbled over it is wonderful too. The appetizers are yummy and the service is great with friendly staff. Best of all, you feel like you have eaten at a gourmet restaurant, yet you walk out feeling like you paid for it at a family restaurant. The cost has never deterred me from going back.

Very slow service took about 30 minutes just to oreder a drink. Did not server the right cocktails and would not exchange them. Also the food was not good at all, so that topped it all. Would not recomend this place go to Del Taco!!!

The place is casual chic and high energy. The exposed industrial ceiling, wooden beams and tile floor create a rustic setting in which everyone--from kids to grandparents--feels comfortable.
