I'd recommend ribeye, surf-turf, clam linguini, and salmon. We tried all. The chef pays attention to details. My kids love the kids menu item: spaghetti and Alfredo, I can see local people love this place. They also have a well-thought menu that can suit all your needs. Breakfast pastry is super-delicious too. Very friendly and attentive service too!

I recently ate here while staying in Carlsbad. We were super happy to hear about the free wine tastings on Sat nights. The sangria, malbec, and chenin blanc are fantastic. For dinner we had the goat cheese appetizer which was so good we bought the sauce in the front gift shop. The steak, chicken parm, and chicken bolloco were all... More

Slow service, so so food, expensive, and they charge an extra twenty dollar to my credit card after I already left a 22% tip.

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your experience on Valentines day. Both my husband and I were there the entire evening and we would have immediately taken corrective action had you spoken with us at the time. The adding of the gratuity is completely inexcusable and we can remedy that situation immediately when you bring in your receipt... More

Quick stop in Carlsbad on our return home to San Antonio. Read reviews on TA and asked the locals about restaurants. The Trinity was highly recommended. We just spent the last week in Santa Fe, did not have a meal that held a candle to the one at this restaurant. The Halibut was great, and the chicken florentine was as... More

This lovely hotel, in the best looking building in Carlsbad, has a terrific restaurant on the main floor. Beautifully appointed with high ceilings and updated garnishes. I had an enchilada that was to die for. I've eaten Mexican all over the US and Canada, and my wife and I agreed this was one of the best! Her club sandwich was... More

Wonderful historic setting with their own wine label. Romantic meal. Creative menu. We ordered angel hair pasta w vegetables and a southwest chicken pasta that was a signature dish. Both were superb. Highly recommend.

The Trinity offers a great option away from the cookie-cutter chains. The most friendly waitstaff and bartenders will offer suggestions and pair a New Mexico wine option. Skip the chains and try this fine eatery.

This is the closest thing to fine dining in Carlsbad. Beautifully remodeled heritage building with nice bar and dining room. We enjoyed tasting NM wines (3-7 pm) and then had dinner with a chosen wine. Excellent Classic Italian with a few twists. Linguini with clams was really nice, with fresh steamed clams on the half shell included. Prices quite reasonable...... More

Food was ok, but nothing great. I have only once seen portions sizes as small theirs was, maybe it was all 4 different dishes we ordered but not a good trend. Staff was ok at first but when we mentioned our displeasure in the dishes and portions they became very un-freindly to the point we talked to the manager on... More

We have spoken with the entire staff none of whom recall your visit and since both owners are on property and we never met with you we wonder if perhaps you have our reviewed our resturant by accident. We do not do small plates at the Trinity but the property a block down from us does. Blessings for your day,... More
