Simply Delicious – I recently went on a date at TROIS and it was the perfect place. The French cuisine was simple and delicious. The atmosphere was sophisticated and chic. If you want to impress a girl, this is the ideal place.
Sleek French eatery is designed to appeal to modern tastes and posh crowds. – In Short
The restaurateurs behind One.Midtown Kitchen and Two Urban Licks complete the dining trilogy with a three-story structure a stone's throw from the Woodruff Arts Center and the future Atlanta Symphony site. The minimalistic dining room is enclosed in windows and dressed in sheer curtains. A dramatic glass staircase leads to an upstairs event space and down to a more intimate lower-level lounge. The downstairs bars has the feel of an LA-modern, luxury hotel bar with under-lit aluminum floors, glass bar-top and a cocktail menu built with sophistication in mind. Executive Chef Todd Ginsberg repositioned the original menu by skewing the traditional with a few modern twists, but keeping the over-arching French concept. Buttermilk fried chicken livers and roasted duck breast with truffled chestnuts delicately play new vs. old. Pistachio creme brulee headlines a decadent dessert list.
High five for wonderful dishes, service/staff, and decor – I went to Trois when I visited Atlanta couple times for biz from nyc. Menu offers wide variety of dishes (great design btw) it is french but keep it very simple. Since we were many of us, we were able to try almost every appetizer but everything was just great. Entree was just right portioned and just wonderful. This is also great for a business dining as well. ( across from four seasons) Very nice service and knowledgeable staff.
Avoid dining room at all costs – While the bar and dining room decor may be pleasant, the food and service, the main things a restaurant earns its reputation on, leave much to be desired. The food was horrible, notably the Cobb salad which was poorly presented with mostly iceberg lettuce a few crumbles of blue cheese, some egg, and the what tasted more like burnt wood chips than bacon. Worst of all, the chicken topping the salad was raw and skin slimy ! It was pink and bloody. We sent it back. Never did they offer to replace the salad the undercooked chicken juice had dripped on. Major safety and sanitation issue here! The waiter had a notable attitude (not a good one) when the chicken was sent back. They brought the chicken back looking just as it did when they took it away, Totally unexcusable. Also, the bread plates were wisked away without explanation from the place settings, as you have to pay for bread at lunch (we found that out after asking for some bread to have along with our soup and salad) . The onion soup had hot melted cheese covering an overly salty luke warm broth. The bottle of white wine we ordered was not available, and when we decided on another, it was not properly chilled, and just set on the table. We asked for a chilling bucket which we got 15 minutes later (it was not crowded). Also, we had to make a special request for salt and pepper. No pepper offered for the salads or soups! This is one of those places that prides itself more on attitude and interior design (try to figure out how to flush the toilet in the restrooms!!) than on well prepared food and excellent service. Also when we left and asked for our valet stamp. They said "Are you planning on leaving now?" because these stamps are time sensitive. Just the kind of place I hate to see take away business from restaurants where quality of food and taking care of the customer are the number one priorities.
Love the Bar, Don't come hungry! – I can do the bar at Trois anytime, anyday. The scene is chic, the crowd is mature. The menu items that I've had have all be well made, but portions are quite small so you have two options. Do not come to Trois extremely hungry or plan to spend major bucks to finance the additional sides or appetizers that you'll need to curb your appetite. Knowing this, I'd go to Trois time and time again and usually will just lounge in the bar table area. The drinks are the business...cute concotions, well made.
Hot bar, cold dining room – The atmosphere is certainly continental, but the menu seemed too similar to its midtown sidekick. The service was fine, but didn't seem appropriately matched to the menu prices. Plus, the server?s tight white pants and pouchy tummies left a lot to be desired (I recommend black pants!). My tilapia was delightful, but my husband?s snapper reminded me of whale blubber.
Chic Bar – The Bar at TROIS is my new favorite place to start a Girls Night Out. My ladies and I went there last Saturday night and fell in love with the atmosphere - classy and sophisticated but not snooty. The drinks, although a little more expensive than you might find at other bars, are delish and completely worth the money. I tried the Apoirtif and loved its pear taste that wasn't too sweet. My friends had the Jack Rose, Nick & Nora Martini and the Silver Gin Fizz. With fun names like these, what's not to like?
Food & Service Very Disappointing – Great atmosphere but the service during lunch was extraordinarily slow (not good for people who only have an hour lunch break!). The staff was very odd & obviously not trained well for what you would think was a high class restaurant by the appearance & hype. The staff was clumsy, lacked knowledge & didn't know when & when not to service the table. Wine pours were short & disappointing. Appetizers (french onion & califlower soups) were barely lukewarm & unimpressive. Entrees (2 fish dishes & beef stroganoff) were expensive & also all came out lukewarm. Sending out hot food is a basic in a restaurant & shouldn't be a problem when you are paying that amount. Had to send them back meaning taking a longer lunch break. Food was decent but should be excellent for the amount you spend. Nothing made me want to go back again. 1 week later, a co-worker had a business lunch there w/ 3 others & one of the cooks. They came back w/ nothing but commical things to say about their experience. It was disastrous & the cook left horribly embarrased & the guest were uncomfortably embarrassed for him. Trois needs to start taking all these negative reviews seriously. There are too many excellent restaurants in Atlanta at the same price point that are much more worth your time & money.
Nice atmosphere with cheap food and poorly trained staff - don't do it! – What a horrible experience. I visited Trois with 5 co-workers for a nice dinner for our first night in ATL from NYC. The menu looked great, we couldn't decide what to order there were so many great choices. It was all downhill from there. The waiter brought a complimentary glass of the cheapest pink champagne I have ever tasted in my life. He asked if we wanted more bread but never brought it. He only brought 1 of 2 side dishes to accompany an entree. He brought beans instead of spinach. The spread for the bread looked like orange baby food mush. The salad had a dressing that failed to please. And it took a very loooooooooooooooong time for the check. As a matter of fact it took a very loooooooooooong time for everything. I've been to France where the food is great, cheesy places like this is the reason French food gets a bad name.
Overpriced, Snooty service, not great food – I love one midtown kitchen and two urban licks but Trios, also owned by concentrics, falls short. The service is snooty and the food is not worth the extremely high prices they charge. We made reservations and were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time. The atmosphere is so trendy that I think they forgot to focus on the reason they are in business, the food.
Go for cocktails with the girls if you want to pay NYC prices in Atlanta.
