In the heart of Strongsville’s economic district is perhaps one of the most fashionable restaurants in Northeast Ohio. With a sophisticated color scheme, a pleasant atmosphere, and food that is out of this world, Trivs easily brings a touch of chicness to cuisine.

“The atmosphere is cozy, and we aim to make it feel like you are relaxing in the comfort of a home,” explains General Manager Stephanie Anaya. After eight years at Trivs, she has come to think of the exquisite environment as her second home. “The customers feel like guests in our home, especially when they are greeted by friendly and familiar faces.”

The restaurant greets its visitors with warm, savory aromas that blend effortlessly with the cozy interior to create an environment in which you can relax. Ambiance is maintained through the use of dim lighting, casting deep shadows and gentle glows across the black and white décor.

“Strongsville helps set the scene, too, as we like to be more of a boutique restaurant that provides something a little bit different.” Strongsville, an eclectic and charming community, makes the perfect setting for Trivs’ classic American fare with a delightfully modern twist. Generous portions of steak, seafood, and vegetarian dishes adorn their menu, and the freshest quality ingredients are used to create both an unforgettable meal and experience.

“The food is fresh, made-from-scratch,” says Anaya. “We get our seafood and protein in every morning, we order as much as we can locally, we make as much as we can from scratch, and we never have anything frozen. Our menus change seasonally, and we strive to accommodate dietary needs.”

Owner Mike Trivisonno aims to make all guests feel like family, and the best way to the heart is through the tummy. Armed with casual elegance and bold flavors, Trivs charms guests Mondays through Saturdays beginning at 11 a.m. Lunch is served until 3 p.m., and the lunch menu now features an updated menu with delectably fresh options. Dinner is served from 4 to 10 p.m., and supper options change seasonally to cater to the flavors of the freshest local ingredients. From 11 a.m. through midnight, guests can enjoy the comfort of the lounge.

“If you choose to experience the lounge or dine on the year-round patio, you are in for a treat! We offer happy hour every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Happy hour features $6 wine, martinis, and appetizers. Plus, we offer an an impressive selection of beer, liquor, and wine, and a weekly mojito that allows us to switch it up and have fun creating tasty seasonal drink options.”

Both the drinks and appetizers make a perfect pairing with Trivs’ specialty steaks and seafood. Anaya raves about her favorite dish, C.A.B. Grilled Ribeye paired with special recipe Potato Gratin, a pairing which is, like much of the menu, a classic that is too good to pass up. With a variety of surf, turf, and even vegetarian and gluten free cuisine, Trivs demonstrates that the simple elegance of classic rich flavors and quality ingredients never go out of style.

Plus, the venue is available for larger events on Sundays.
