After being on the road for a week with the regular fast food, diner, or chain restaurants, the Trinity Hotel restaurant was a warm welcome with fine dining. The staff was attentive and the food was cooked to perfection. If in Carlsbad you should consider this place for great food and a decent wine list.

We were looking for a good dinner after visiting the caverns. This restaurant was recommended among others and we tried it. It was comfortable and lively. We got a great "people and service watching" table and had great service. The menu's varied, the wine good, and excellent presentation and service. I'd recommend to anyone wanting an exceptional meal. You may... More

Busy place. Service was great. Good menu with reasonable selections of wine and beer. Food was very good but not quite great. The menu was priced right in my opinion. Definitely worth a visit and better than any of the chains in the area. Make a reservation it is popular.

This is our go-to place whenever we want to go out. The chicken piccata is amazing and the filet mignon is to die for! The owners are very personable too.

Our party of three found the food to be so good that we came back a second night. The service as good and prompt and the prices not unreasonable. I'd go back.

We visited family in Carlsbad and they brought us to the Trinity. The service was good, even though they were very busy. I selected a local variation of lasagna which was good, but not what I was expecting. If I had it to do over, I would select the traditional lasagna. We had the raspberry cheesecake for dessert, which was... More

Enjoy the atmosphere and service...and the food is excellent. Plan to eat at the "Trinity" when you have time to enjoy it. Decent wine menu and great pasta dishes.

Since we were working in Carlsbad on our 30th Wedding Anniversary, my husband made reservations for us to have dinner at The Trinity. It's a beautiful building that the owner (whom we met) has restored to show off its original beauty and fit the modern times. We enjoyed a wine tasting before dinner and was seated in the upper level... More

Maybe I'm spoiled because I live in a pretty large city but this place is more like mehhh than wow. The food is good enough and I like that they have some good local beers but only NM wines? No one wants to drink that stuff if they actually like wine. It tasted more like Kool aid. Menu is also... More

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience, and that you find our menu disappointing. However we are concidered to be a Italian restaurant so the fact there are many pasta dishes is what we are known for. Our wines our quite delicious and we rarely come across customers who are displeased with them. We do thank... More
