We were just visiting town and this place was a short walk from our hotel. We came for appetizers and a glass of wine. The food was delicious and wine very good, but was a bit more pricey than I am use to paying $10+ a glass. The atmosphere was great, I loved the decor. The service was good, even... More

Went to Tria for a late Saturday lunch without reservations and we were able to be seated right away in this tiny restaurant. Fancy but not snobby. They were happy to help you pick out a good beer, wine or cheese for you without coming across as condescending. The Old Chatham Camembert cheese, served with cherries and bread, was super... More

The 5 for $5 happy hour is great. They offer a cheese plate, 2 different beers, and red or white wine. Always wonderful selections with a knowledgeable staff to boot. Monday - Thursday 5-7pm

Consistently reliable for quality, service, and selection of wine, beer, and food. We always go to at least one of the locations whenever we are in Philly. A comfortable place to relax and talk to members of your party. The outside seating is enjoyable.

Great beer and wine menu with lots of tasty apps and snacks as well as great salads. Sunday afternoons they offer amazing deals on wine, beer and cheese platters. Best place to grab a beer on a sunny afternoon.

My first encounter with Tria was during a weekday Happy Hour. The low-key setting was perfect for conversing with my buddies and I couldn't wait to head back again. Fast forward to Saturday night around 10 p.m. and the bar was buzzing with hipsters discussing their latest personal / professional accomplishments. Tria has delicious food - I personally indulge in... More

My fiance and I stopped here for dinner before a show because we didn't have much time. The staff was very accomodating and gracious. He ordered the Truffled Egg Toast with Fontina appetizer (because someone on the internet had called it "incredible"). When it came out, we were a little scared that it was just a raw egg in bread,... More

We were in the city for the night and I pulled out my trusty Yelp app to see what the options were. We saw Tria and the number of really good reviews and decided to give it a try. We stopped in around 5:30pm on a Saturday night. It was perfect timing as the last 2-person table was sitting empty... More
