I went during restaurant week and they had a three course meal for a good price. The food was pretty good, and they had $5 martinis when I went on a Wednesday!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. It was really good. From the martinis to the caprese salad to the seafood lasagne to the hanger steak everything was wonderful. And huge portions. Service was very good as well.

Piano player and fun decor revs up the atmosphere. The service is friendly, attentive and helpful. I had the seafood lasagna which was amazing. I highly recommend it. I did not care for the salmon chowder as much. It was a little bland and hardly...More

I love this restaurant - the staff, the food, the ambiance, the best outdoor deck in KC. I met friends for an early Saturday evening dinner and tried new items: Southwest gazpacho and the Cafe Trio burger. #fabulous We had an awesome waiter, Blair. Additionally,...More

We had lunch on their porch. The food was pretty good as was the service. Our table was directly in front of one of their fans, however, which made for very windy conditions for our table. Not sure why they had their fans on as...More

We've been traveling, and so haven't been to happy hour at Cafe Trio for weeks until last night. It was wonderful! Along with the drink specials, we ordered the half portion of PEI Mussels and the slider. Trio's mussels and the preparation are my favorites...More

I've never ordered the lasagna, but the portions are usually generous.

There are several gluten-free options on the Cafe Trio menu, which are noted with colorful icons. Ask your server for further explanation of what those icons designate, which I did recently because they're not explained on... More

Comfortable, calming and chic, Café Trio draws a diverse clientele of urban dwellers, on-the-town suburbanites and tourists who strike up lively conversations over classically inspired craft cocktails and beautifully imagined seasonal, from-scratch dishes. Perched on the incline at 45th and Main Street, the restaurant’s all-seasons patio view of the J.C. Nichols Fountain and Country Club Plaza add to the vibe. Executive Chef Adam Yoder and his culinary team hand-cut the steaks and chops and use a cornucopia of local and regional produce and artisan foods for their well-curated menu. Don’t-miss items include Café Trio’s handcrafted cracker-crust pizzas, roasted chicken, confit garlic mashed potatoes and the warm chocolate truffle cake. Imbibe your pleasures at the weekly happy hour with signature martinis such as the Marilyn Monroe or Paris Hilton — paired with the Price Edward Island mussels or crispy lump crab cakes, you just might have fantasies of taking up residence in one of Café Trio’s comfy booths. And if you’re planning a party, Trio’s two private event spaces are just the ticket for a sexy soiree.
