When George Clooney was in town filming The Ides of March, he made reservations at Trio Bistro.
Equal parts California wine bar and Florida coastal bistro, Trio Bistro has won over celebrities, critics, and patrons with its fresh seafood, including grouper flown in from Florida daily, as well as its meticulous service. Cincinnati.com praises Trio Bistro’s staff, saying, "there is clearly a good system in place that allows servers to do their job well," and Gayot lauds the "young vibe, all-ages clientele and a hip, circular bar made for hanging out." This carefully maintained ambiance accommodates any dining experience, be it an in-and-out dinner or a leisurely evening sharing a bottle of Orin Swift’s blend of zinfandel, cabernet, syrah, and petite sirah.
Located across from Nordstrom's, Trio Bistro, which is independently owned, has spent nearly a quarter century perfecting its bounty of steaks, seafood, and specialty pizzas and flatbreads. The menu draws inspiration from kitchens all over the globe—it's packed with pizzas that deliver Thai and Mediterranean toppings, fish that hails from Alaska and New England, and meatloaf, a 20-year mainstay. The bistro's small plates have earned them an excellent rating on Zagat.
Sunlight comes flooding through the venue's elongated windows, glinting off cherry wood accents and warm white tablecloths. In the Veranda room, two fireplaces blaze.
