"What do you want from a restaurant? We probably all agree: unpretentious, but delicious food; a hip, but comfortable setting and seating; friendly service; good smells; and prices for food and wine that are reasonable right now. This restaurant gives us all that, plus it's locally owned and has two convenient locations. No wonder its fans voted Café Trio this year's "Readers Choice."
"As if Café Trio’s hip atmosphere, stellar menu, innovative cocktails and eye pleasing service wasn't enough, you now have yet another reason to join for us lunch. At the Salt Lake Magazine Dining Awards on February 19th 2008, Café Trio received the distinctive award of "Best Lunch". Savvy locals, business people looking to impress clients and discriminating diners alike, are seen daily at Café Trio munching on Rosemary Flatbread and sipping tantalizing beverages like the Grapefruit Mojito or Blueberry Crush. Come and see what the buzz is all about! Café Trio is open for lunch daily at both locations, Downtown and Cottonwood, from 11 to 4pm."
"Café Trio has brought in some new wines for the fall, including a great patio wine, the 2008 Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc. It's fruity without being overly sweet, and it's very crisp. Now is a great time to embrace the waning outdoor-dining days, especially on a Sunday afternoon, when the typically long wait for the downtown Trio doesn't exist. And if you have the consistently excellent Ammie as your server, consider yourself lucky."
"As always Trio was a great experience. We went there for Valentines day because we knew it would be low fuss and enjoyable. The food was delicious, service just right not too intrusive, ambiance romantic and appropriate. This place is consistently a good experience."
"In the past I've only been to the Café Trio off 900 east and that one is fantastic, but I love how spacious the Cottonwood location is! Food is excellent as always and service was prompt and friendly. If you're a newbie to Café Trio, I highly recommend the Trio Flatbread for starters. Trio overall is always a great dining experience with great food, service, and excellent atmosphere."
"Café Trio is possibly the best service service you will find in the Salt lake Valley. They really care that your experience with them is memorable. The food is delicious, well presented, and priced to assure your return. We love Café Trio!"
"In warm weather, it's hard to beat Café Trio for al fresco dining. The patio is typically bustling with energy. Kick off a meal with Trio's famous rosemary flatbread or a bowl of steamed Manila clams. Then, launch into more substantial fare such as the wood-roasted natural chicken, pork tenderloin picatta, or cedar-roasted wild salmon. I'm also drawn to Café Trio's no-nonsense, economical wine list. For kids and kids-at-heart, Trio offers tempting desserts like Toll House pie and warm apple cobbler. For adults, there's an equally tempting array of dessert martinis. And on weekends, Café Trio ought to be at the top of your list of brunch destinations."
"For all those hardworking corporate-types cooped up in office parks and business hotels of Cottonwood Heights, lunch at Café Trio is somewhat akin to finding a desert oasis for the parched and sun-stroked. For starters, the food at Trio from wood-fired oven-baked rosemary flatbread and the panzanella salad to the pizzas, pastas and paninis all scrumptious. And at its downtown location, the Italian restaurant is famous for keeping things cool on its inviting patio by way of its misters and refreshing cocktails. Top it off with a plate of gourmet flatbread and you've got yourself one decadent night out. And the servers? Let's just say we know where GQ keeps its male models off-hours."
"Trio calls them "starters," not appetizers. But let's not nitpick. Beginning any meal at Trio with crispy flatbread from the wood-fired-pizza oven kicks off the meal with a bang. The rosemary flatbread with chevre and roasted peppers especially rocks. Ooh, and then there's the Trio tartlet, a mini-tart topped with caramelized onions, olives, ricotta and roasted eggplant. Did we mention steamed Manila clams with shaved garlic, fresh basil, tomatoes and white wine butter sauce? You might not even make it to the entrees."
