My boyfriend and I came here for a romantic lunch on Halloween. We were both very impressed with our experience. The ambiance was very nice, beautifully restored old building. The wait staff was all dressed for Halloween and were friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty, especially the pasta side and the caramel apple pie, high quality, and reasonably... More

WE were very impressed with the Trinity Restaurant. WE had one dinner, one breakfast and I wished we had more meals here!! The pastas were great, service excellant, and the breakfast steak and eggs were perfect and at a reasonable price too.

I have eaten dinner at the Trinity several times since February. Each time the atmosphere has been nice and the food good. their wine selection is good too. The only drawbacks are that there have been screaming children on at least one occasion with the parents doing nothing about it. And some elements of the dish I had last time... More

Our dinner was fresh and flavorable, and the presentation of the meal was attractive. There were a couple of vegetarian alternatives--mostly with pasta--but the vegetables were fresh, flavorful, and not over-cooked. Salmon was fresh, but it was a bit overcooked.I wouldn't call this a memorable meal by any means, except that it is better than many of the alternatives in... More

Another case where the TripAdvisor community got it right. This hotel and restaurant has small town charm, and when you pull up to it, you wonder if you're even at the right place that ranks at the top of all restaurants in Carlsbad. But they deserve the title. The food was excellent, and the service rivals that of ay restaurant... More

The service is great, nice home town ambience. surf and turf included a huge lobster tail and the filet was high quality and seasoned perfectly. Salmon was fresh. It surpassed my expectations. Red wine was served room temp. But that was a minor gripe. The Luna Pinot Noir was still fantastic.

While staying in the hotel we had three meals here, 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. The breakfasts were, on all counts, quite good. The dinner, however, was more than disappointing. The food itself was ok (what restaurant serves Ritz crackers with a goat cheese appetizer?) but it was the service that was exceedingly poor. We were seated promptly for our... More

We really enjoyed our evening at the hotel and the convenience of using their dining room. The menu offers standard American dishes plus a pasta page, and our server advised us to try the pasta. It was good but heavy. What made us enjoy the place was the warm hospitality of our hotelkeeper and bartender and server. They made our... More

Recently moved to Carlsbad, had dinner here, excellent service, friendly wait staff and the food was outstanding. The wine list was extensive and our local glass of New Mexico wine was a perfect pairing with dinner. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Five Stars in my book.
