I was impressed with the overall look of Trata. The contrast of the brightly colored decorum against the crimson brown bricks worked surprisingly. It gives it an offbeat vibe, that might attract an alternative crowd, while still being respectful enough for lawyers from the neighboring law firm to frequent. I was even more impressed with its various seating options: outdoor seating, first and second floor seating, and upper patio seating as well. The waiting staff seemed fairly young (the median age was either 23 or 24) ,but were pleasant and professional. The food was exquisite. If I had to rate it on a scale from one to five, I would give about a 3 or a 3.5. In terms of cost, I would say the food would be moderately expensive. But it was definitely a nice venue for a birthday meal or a business meeting. Overall, my first trip to Trata was decent.
