As if there were not enough trendy, but shallow restaurants in Atlanta, comes now TROIS to darken an already grim . Our third trip (during Midtime Restaurant Week) was an unmitigated disaster -- from a 40 minute wait time after our confirmed reservation to the mediocre overpriced fare to the outright deceptive practices designed to drive the dollars from our pocket (in this case, the much touted complimentary wine promotion), the experience was one of the worst we've had in this town. Unless your idea of an evening out features a healthy dose of humiliation and financial shenanigans, I'd avoid this pretentious pit.

I was only moderately impressed with Trois,and was disappointed after eating at One and Two. The food is fancy but portions are small and the overall effect is that it is a restaurant trying to be better than they are. The parking is difficult.

My husband and I selected Trois to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had dined at the establishment once before, during Midtown Restaurant Week in 2007, and wanted to experience the menu in full. When we walked in, we were pleasantly greeted by the maitre d' and wished a very happy anniversary; unbeknownst to us, that would prove to be the highlight of our dining experience. While seated at a private table in the bar, we ordered a split of champagne. Ten minutes later, the server arrived at our table, empty handed, explaining that they were out of that particular champagne. My husband then ordered a Hendrick's gin with a slice of cucumber only to find out that they were out of Hendrick's. When he asked for the bartender to suggest a similar gin that would pair well with cucumber, we learned that the owner had taken all the cucumbers that evening (not sure why) and that they were out. We contemplated leaving, but decided to stick it out. Still thirsty, we proceeded to dinner. Our server did a decent job of explaining the specials (and warned us of the dishes that they were out of that evening). All in all, the meal was decent, yet forgettable, and certainly over-priced. The restaurant seemed to have lost its sparkle over the course of the year. Unfortunately, we don't plan to return any time soon.

I am not the biggest fan of Trois. Although the restaurant was a beautiful space and the service was good, I was not as impressed with the menu. The tables were far too close together, and even though during most of the meal our waiter was attentive - when it came to time to pay our check he was no where to be found and when he did show we were actually given the check from 2 tables over... which was easy to find out since the tables are SOOoo close.

I had an urge to leave when the 'amuse-bouche' tasted like baby food applesauce and instead of bread&butter we got bread with some root vegetable mash that taste more like (again!)baby food, that my baby would most likely no eat. ...but we were a party to 10 so just decided to hope for the best with the rest of the meal. Out of all 10 people, only two actually enjoyed their dinner. Everything else was pretty awful, including appetizers. In addition, although the dish prices seemed reasonable, the wine list stared at $90/bottle...really not necessary and rather insulting to the customer. Only saving grace of the restaurant was the service. Don't listen to the hype like I did, and skip this restaurant...there are much better places in Atlanta!

Great food, great service (although don't plan on getting out of there in less than 2 hours). I had the mussells, the duck and the chocolate tart thing for dessert. It was all very good. We went to the bar downstairs after dinner and really enjoyed it. Great crowd.

Again, got to check out Trois during Midtown Restaurant week, so had a tasting menu for $25. The food was fabulous. I love a restaurant with an open kitchen! The bar downstairs is so cool; I am set on hosting a little get together at one of the private tables.

The food wasn't the best but the experience as a whole was nice. The portions were tiny and the food was a little bit salty but because the size of our party, we were upgraded to the private room upstairs at no charge which was very very nice.

Visiting TROIS last weekend for a third time confirmed that it is one of the cities most fabulous restaurants. For young professionals (22-30) who are constantly searching for trendy Atlanta hotspots, TROIS is surely a place to see and be seen.
