Description: 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.

Walking distance between the museums so we stopped in for lunch. Place looks a little upscale and lots of business lunch patrons. At night they have a bar and piano music. Food was very good. Loved the Mac&Cheese Lunch dish I had and the dessert was excellent. Staff was good and friendly.

We ate a late lunch here on a Friday afternoon. Enjoyed sitting outside on the deck even though it was a tad chilly. We each had a drink. My wife had fish tacos and I had the Rueben sandwich. The sandwich was just okay but the fish tacos were good. Service was excellent.

In town for wedding & caught up with friends. Ambiance was so good inside and out. Best mussels I've had and the spinach salad with a side crab cake was delicious. Good prices on food and drinks.

We stopped in here for a quick bite and drinks last week. Great cosmos. We ordered the steamed mussels, which were good and a flatbread pizza. Food was good, however VERY salty. Otherwise, a good meal.

One of the best Happy Hour places in KC. The deck has a great view of KC's great Plaza shopping district. The brussel sprouts and Tuscan shrimp flatbread are wonderful. Others love their mac n cheese. Go often. The service for the dinning room is first class.
