Friends get together to celebrate Christmas. We decided to order from the pairing menu- with wine pairings. We were warmly welcomed by owner and staff - and shown to our table. From the moment we entered until the last plate was cleared- our experience was superb! Brian / Alex special shout-out for always being exceptional hosts. Each course of the menu was presented with a wonderful description - and plated to appeal to our eyes as well as our taste, and perfectly paired with a complementary wine. The food was amazing as it is every time we come- and I have yet to find another restaurant where the service is better. The staff is friendly and efficient and we truly enjoyed every moment . Thanks for a great celebration.

Everything was excellent! When we arrived, we were greeted at the door and asked to show our proof of vaccination. The tables were well spaced and comfortable. We shared the sweet potato starter, which was delicious! I had the duck, which was tender and tasty. It came with very yummy squash perogies. My husband had the Wagyu, which was extremely tender and cooked perfectly pink. For dessert, I had the ricotta cheesecake and my husband had the chocolate mousse. Both were light and delicious! I wouldn't have changed a thing!

From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted with warmth, and calm! We'd had a hectic day, and really needed to unwind! We were reminded consistently to relax and take our time, which was soooo appreciated!
The atmosphere was fantastic, but the owner, food, and especially our waiter/sommelier, really put this experience over the top!
The scallop starter, lamb and Wagyu entrees, and Chocolate dessert were in 1 word, INCREDIBLE!
We don't eat fine dining usually with 2 kids, but it was our 15th anniversary, and we couldn't be happier!
Seriously a fantastic experience!
Thank you for making our night magical! ❤️ Will def be back again!

Fantastic!

The food was phenomenal and the staff was outstanding!

It was our first visit to Trio (King Street Trio), so we ordered the tasting menu. It was the perfect way to get a genuine feel of what Trio’s menu had to offer. Every dish was as good or better than the one before!

If you truly love sophisticated food, with depth in both taste and texture, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Thank you Brian and Benoit for a fantastic experience!

Our dinner was fabulous! The new menu is exceptional and the service was impeccable. Brian and Benoit made sure our evening was wonderful from beginning to end. Everything from the before dinner cocktail (Brown butter old fashion), wine selections, main courses and dessert was incredible and definitely the best in the region. They have created a carefully curated experience for all the senses! This restaurant is a must for those who enjoy fine dining with comfortable accommodations, attentive service and great recommendations on food and wine. We were definitely spoiled and look forward to our next adventure there!

We had the most fabulous dining experience at King Street Trio last night for our anniversary. We chose to have the tasting menu with wine paring and we were so impressed with everything! Our server, Benoit, was so entertaining, and took us on a trip around the world with a beautiful variety of wines that matched our meal perfectly. The food was spectacular with flavour combinations so unique and delicious. The entire staff were very friendly and made our experience very memorable. We will return!

Hands down best meal we have had in ages. Steak was cooked to perfection, tomato and peach appetizer was an outstanding, masterful blend of flavours, Raviolini was a lovely tribute to fall with a just the right touch of pumpkin spice... scallops had a palate pleasing combination of apple and spaghetti squash.

Roll Call - the flavours were so fresh and unexpected, a drink that I would order again and again.

We have dined here many times before but I have never been so wowed by the menu.

Bravo.

(as always - service was exceptional)

Another fabulous evening at King Street Trio. Our night always starts off great when we are welcomed warmly at the door by owner Brian Plouffe and shown to our table like honoured guests! If you are a repeat diner you are very likely to be greeted by name, which is so lovely. Our server, Alex, knows our wine preferences and presents the menu with recommendations. When he describes the dishes he serves you can almost feel how delicious they are going to be before even tasting them. We really love watching Chef Kyle and Sous Chef Mike creating and plating in the open kitchen. It’s fun watching them work in the overhead mirrors. We started with the Scallops with spaghetti squash which was AMAZING! The scallops were cooked to perfection and the mixture of flavours was unique and wonderful. Then Beef Tartare on those yummy, crispy chips was out of this world, followed by the onion tart which melts in your mouth. I had the Cornish Hen with green beans, beautiful crispy skin and wonderful flavour. My Mom and hubby had the Black Cod. I got a taste of the lobster sauce and it blew my mind! It’s a good thing they served it with a spoon to get every last drop. As usual, the desserts were amazing…..a Vanilla Parfait with meringue and lemon sorbet and Poached Peach with rosemary ice cream. Special mention to Shannon and Benoit, and the whole team, who also helped to make our Anniversary dinner special. We’ll be back soon!!
