              I suppose early 20 something yuppies or cougars would like this place for a happy hour, but not I. I wanted to check it out because I heard it had a great beer selection. The selection was pretty good, I suppose, but everything else was sub par IMO. It's about 60 square feet and was jam packed during my visit. Too loud to talk. The food (a processed meat sandwich) was pretty bad. Lathered in a pepper-onion sauce. Our server was nice. My one and only visit.

              Both Tria's are great - this one is especially good for the after work crowd. It can be loud inside so I try to get a table on Sansom St. The food is always good and there is enough wine on the menu to get a different type every time.

              A decent selection of wines although lacking compared to the more extensive lists available in the city. The lack of a proper wine preservation system keeps them secondary to the likes of Vintage and Panorama which feature cruvinet systems. If you are just getting started with wines it?s a nice place to go to be ?seen? but is not serious about its wine selection for the more experienced Oenophiles. Prepare to be jostled quite a bit by unruly guests and surly employees

              We went there Sunday night with some friends. The hostess was friendly, situated us at the bar until a table opened up and seated us promptly. The food and wine were terrific, especially the salads. The service was just terrible though. The waitress was overly pretentious, slow, intrusive and probably one of the worst I have ever experienced. We did receive our food as ordered, so there is one plus for her. She just seemed very awkward and made us all very uncomfortable. And we are friendly easy going people! I have been told they hire based on wine knowledge-well, she did not offer nor share any of this with us and she did not seem to have any experience as a wait person. Maybe they should look for skilled waiters first and hire a wine steward to chat up the wine selection. Just a thought.

              Be sure to check out Tria's Sunday School for great half priced wine, cheese and beer. Tria's selections of wines and are impressive and worth checking out if you like variety. The staff is friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is fun. Sunday School has quickly become a weekly tradition.

              As far as the food and wine go, Tria is a great wine bar. Skip Vintage; Tria's wine list is far superior. The tomato and basil bruschetta is delicious; I would be happy to sit all day drinking wine and ordering plate after plate of bruschetta if doing so wouldn't break the bank. The sandwiches and salads are quite tasty as well. I particularly like the arugula with beets and goat cheese. However, Tria does have several downsides. Every time I've come for dinner at 5:30 or later, there's been a 30+ minute wait for dinner for two--and they don't take reservations, so the only way to guarantee prompt seating is to arrive before 5:00. Tria is tiny and gets quite crowded, so if you're standing or sitting at the bar, you will be jostled by other customers. Also, don't expect great service. The staff know their wine and cheese, but they are not overly attentive or friendly.

              Went on a rainy Friday night. Walked in the door and was told there would be a 45 minute wait. There were no seats available at the bar. There was no place really to even stand and wait. My expectations were extremely low at this point. However, soon enough two people got up form the bar and we were able to start out meal there. The wine and cheese selection is pretty nice. In terms of the "snacks" the assorted meat tray was a nice mixture of meat and seemed to be ordered by pretty much everyone in the place.

              Once a table opened up, they moved us, our food and our bill pretty seemlessly. It was nice having to run the credit card only once. The salad and sandwich were nice. We split them and the server was smart enough to serve the sandwich on two plates.

              The food is good, but not for a big meal. If you are in the mood for a chill place with a nice glass of wine then this is a good stop. Otherwise you might be a little disappointed.

              Pricing, 2 people: 2 glasses of wine, 1 beer, assorted meats, cheese, sandwich, salad = $60.

              Pros: Wine selection, ambience

              Cons: really really really small, few tables

              .

              The food and drink is good - not better or worse than anywhere else like this in Philly. But AVOID this place if you actually want to sit down at a table... it's really sort of a joke, the owners need a clue.

              Number one rule in the restaurant business - keep the tables moving! Sure, don't blatantly rush out patrons who overstay, but control it so that others can enjoy meals instead of sitting at the bar way past the dinner hour. A good waiter / waitress has certain tactics for getting overstayers to leave, but Tria does not have policy to do this. They choose to NOT bother. IT IS A BUSINESS, ISN'T IT???.

              We had a party of 5, and we were told a half hour. The restaurant is only a few tables, we sat at the bar until we were starving (not great for socializing), and the table we were waiting for had people who were completely done for nearly an hour. One guy was nursing a beer. For that, we missed the dinner, and left furious and starving.

              ps - We wandered hungrily until we found the Capital Grill - luckily they were still serving, and that was an unbelievable experience. FYI

              tiny little cozy space with a great wine and cheese selection, My brother came to town and now itis his favorite spot when he is in town. They discontinued my favorite cheese and wine but the replacements were just as enjoyable. Is is a spot to go if there are a few of you but if you get a large group, there really is no space for them to stand and then the noise level detracts from the ambience. My only wish is that the batenders were a bit more friendly/personable. i don't need a full fledged conversation but all most do is serve you and that is it, never any small chat or "how are you", they get right back to chatting with eachother, and this has happened every time i have been there-total makes 11 . it is very relaxing going there and i and a few friends like to go there and unwind...

              Whiny, scrawny, balding, irritation of a pissant little manager tries his hardest to ruin this fantastic little Philly spot. Fantastic wine, cheese, and brews in a wonderfully calm and chill atmosphere are routinely overcast by the extremely small size and poor crowd management. This obnoxious little troll manager allows free for all entry, and then will elbow his knee-height way through the crowds as if someone else was responsible for seating the number of people allowed in when there is only room for 50 max.

              NEVER EVER GO WITH A GROUP LARGER THAN 4 - and even then the manager, Chris, is a tu rd.

              I sat on this place too long and I'm kicking myself for it. I went with a friend for a late lunch and we were seated promptly. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. An adventurous wine list and wide variety of cheeses paired with a menu that all sounded so good it was difficult to choose from. Highlights: crab-stuffed peppers, truffled mushroom and fontina bruschetta, tuna and spinach salad. Just do it. And the nutella panini for dessert - simple and delicious, just don't forget a napkin.

              Yeah, there's beer. Yep, there's appetizers. But what Tria is really about is the cheese. The one place in Philly dedicated to serving cheese. Each cheese breed is carefully cared for before it winds up on your plate. Special refridgerated areas maintain the cheese at its ideal temperature, for ripening and for serving. Novice cheese connoisseurs can expect servers to be well verse and researched in specialty cheeses, and the menu to helpfully suggest cheese types by prefered beverage pairing. The restaurant itself intimate, and smoothly decorated. Seating was fast and comfortable even on New Year's eve.

              this place has a tendency to get VERY crowded and is not a good place for a large group to meet. the liquor selection is good and the ambiance is worth a try for a swanky couple's night out. however, this place is terrible for groups > 4 people, due to its narrow size. case-in-point, a bunch of us (approx 20) went to this wine bar and after a few hours were refused service from the waiters, as the bar was too crowded. never in my life have i experienced that phenomenom. un-freakin-believable. don't waste your time here.

              We stumbled upon Tria on our recent trip to Philadelphia when we were out wandering around. The food and wine list were great and the server helpful, friendly and warm. We had two servers (one in training) and she spent a lot of time with us, going over our map pointing out other spots we would enjoy.

              I wanted to pack up the whole place and take it with me back to the SF Bay Area!

              I was surprised to read a previous review stating they are annoyed with tastings. I visit this restaurant often and have never had anything but knowledgable, willing service--happy to let me taste a selection, at the bar or sitting at a table. I reccomend going with a bottle once you find something you enjoy. The descriptions are dead on...both with cheeses and wines. I wish they changed their food menu as often as there wine selection. I miss the Appeltaqua--(sp.?) The atmosphere could be cosier, however, the lighting looks sparse and cheap. They offer Tria cards for frequent visitors.

I visit this restaurant often and have never had anything but knowledgable, willing service--happy to let me taste a selection, at the bar or sitting at a table. I reccomend going with a bottle once you find something you enjoy. The descriptions are dead on...both with cheeses and wines. I wish they changed their food menu as often as there wine selection. I miss the Appeltaqua--(sp.?) The atmosphere could be cosier, however, the lighting looks sparse and cheap. They offer Tria cards for frequent visitors.

              Pros: selections, staff knowledge, service

              Cons: often a wait, small

              .

              Tria pretends to take reservations but doesn't honor them. We were told twice that there was a 30 minute wait but upon returning well before the 30 minutes (and after being asked to give our name by the host... AND letting them know we'd be back before the half hour) were told that our table had been given to another party. Good food and nice atmosphere but with all the great restaraunts and cafes around, not worth waiting hours (literally) with no hope of eventually getting a table. Tria needs to make up their mind... be "reservation only" or "first-come-first-serve." Chaos is not a good business strategy... especially in the restaraunt world.

              .

              I was visiting from New York and looking for a quiet place to have a glass of wine. Tria was perfect! The mood was quiet yet lively, and everyone was very friendly. My wine was extraordinary, and the server suggested 2 cheeses to go with it and they were both heavenly. I will certainly return, even if it means an Amtrak ride!

              I recently visited Tria with a friend. I have been to a lot of wine bars and the best ones cater to wine lovers, like me, by allowing you to taste a wine before you order it to make sure it suits. In this regard, I asked the bartender to taste a wine before I ordered it. He gave me a nasty look and then grudgingly poured a small taste. When I asked if there was a fuller wine on the list he said there was and when I asked to taste it, to decide which wine I prefered, he nastily said "we're not a tasting kind of bar" and then turned around and told another bartender what I had asked for, as if it was an outrageous and unreasonable request. This is not the kind of service that wins repeat customers and I will never go back.

              By far the best bottle service in town--a safe haven from the circus Olde City has become. The wine list may be intimidating, but Tria's carefully selected wine offerings are quite good. The setting is intimite and I can think of no other place I'd rather get cozy and share some vine-inspired conversation with a loved one, friend, or family member. I love their glasses with Tria engraved at the exact point where you glass should be filled--nice touch.

              .

              The wine, beer, and cheese choices and variety were outstanding. The service was prompt, curteous, and attentive. Our server knew the answers to most of the questions we asked about the various food and drink items, and if she didn't, she asked someone who did and provided us with the answer right away. This is a place I would highly recommend and that I will visit again and again. If you like good beer, wine, and/or cheese (the fundamentals of good food) you cannot miss out!

              I've become a regular at this little place. I love their salads, tapas and cheeses. Their wine selection is remarkable... love that you can get any wine by the glass, and do all this without breaking the bank. The service is great, and I've found it to also be a good spot for dinning solo.
              Great little gem a block from the Square

              I love tria... when the bar is limited to one or two couples and the din is down to a low murmur. The weekends, tria is awful. It's graceful narrow aisle is congested with the obnoxiousites that overrun Rittenhouse area Friday-Saturday. Share a salads and stick to the excellent wine menu and you can't go wrong (i prefer the Santa Julia Malbec)

              we were pleasantly suprised when we ended up at this under rated neighborhood spot and stayed for most of the night. Service was great-everything we ordered was perfect. we loved that you could get every wine on their list by the glass. It is also about time that a decent cheese menu was offered at a reasonable price here in Philadelphia (that didn't invove a stuffy waiter and a rolling cart)--this is perfect for those who like to try new and interesting tapas, cheeses and wine without breaking the bank--atmospher was cozy, understated and good for conversation.

              I found Tria to be a very comfortable spot in which to enjoy cheese and ale- two of my favorites for a light meal. One of the best things about Tria (other bars and cafes should take note) is that all the draft beers look and taste as they ought- meaning that the lines from cask to tap are cleaned at least weekly.

              .

              I really like the idea of combining fermented products (i.e. cheese, beer and wine). The cheeses (which are all wonderful) are made even more interesting when combined with sides like dried cranberries reconstituted in tea infused with orange zest. The beer selection (a combination of German, Belgian and American) are nothing new to the Philly bar scene however the wine selection is good, broad and rotates fairly quickly. Customers are also provided with top flight stemware. The balance of the food menu is unremarkable. For instance I expected fresh Proscuitto and instead received sauteed chunks on a sandwich that came with asparagus. The atmosphere is very breezy and unpretentious.
