A beautiful dining experience.
The restaurant and location were stunning. We felt like we were in Greece. The food and service were great but they played loud disco type music which took away from the ambiance......Greek music would have been much more appropriate and not quite so loud.....our only complaint.

One of a kind
Trinity Taverna is the first of its kind in Toronto. The menu offers an array of vibrant greek dishes. Overall a great dining experience

NO OUZO menu?
oysters:fresh, salad: delicious, meat: excellent, gyro: yummy, fries: delicious, dips: different and oustanding-the food was excellent. Our vodka martinis were warm. Wine selection was great. The only thing missing was a menu of ouzos. When you go to an oustanding Mexican restaurant, they always have a variety of tequilas. Ouzo was the only thing missing. And the ouzo they did have (after we asked) as Ouzo 12 - not the best in my opinion.

Good Mezzes but...
We had items off the Mezze menu. On the positive side they were inventive. On the negative side they were too salty, very rich, and expensive. Four Mezze, 2 glasses of wine each (total of 4) for $113! The trick is smaller and less expensive. The fish looked good but, again, very expensive.

WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW and WOW!
WOW for: the incredible park/beach location, the gorgeous modern Greek décor, the excellent service, the fantastic food, and the excellent Greek wines! We are big fans of Greek restaurants and have tried many in various cities. Trinity Taverna (which is a complete reno of where the old Boardwalk Pub was) is the best thing to recently happen to Toronto and The Beach (which is not recognized for great restaurants! ... as Beachers we often go outside The Beach to dine!). We went there twice recently, once for dinner and once for lunch. Both experiences were outstanding! Everything we tried on the menu (about 10 different items) was wonderful and the Greek wines were excellent! Well worth the visit! One of the BEST restaurants in Toronto!

Great location/ambience in the beaches. Nice, bright, airy, vibrant. Great decor. Absolutely loved the location.
In my opinion the shrimp were overpriced and frankly a bit tasteless. The octopus was good and innovative. The tomato & feta salad was excellent. The home-made sausage was good but nothing outstanding. The Cretan Dumplings with Spinach & Feta were great. Portions were definitely substantial.
The wine was excellent and reasonably priced.
Unfortunately they had run out of fresh sardines which means a return visit is definitely required. This first time we tried the Mezze. Will definitely have to return a few more times to try the different varieties of the fresh fish which all looked great.

You must visit Trinity! If you love OFF THE BOAT Greek food that is authentic then try Trinity!!!

Not the cheapest place in town but certainly great value as the food is amazing. This is our 3rd visit. Our experience at lunch and a weeknight dinner was wonderful. However, dinner on a Saturday was a bit loud and disorganized. Our server was clearly overworked, so our meal took 4 hours from start to finish. No complaints as we enjoyed everything but some people might have found it a problem.

Great new restaurant
Don't be scared off by the rather pricey entrees. The appetizers and smaller dishes are very generous in size and a meal can be made of them.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great New Restaurant
Only thing like it in Toronto
Massive outdoor patio overlooking the beach
Food service ambiance were terrific feels like you are back in Greece only the food is way better
Gourmet Greek food at its finest
We will be back

I walked in on a random tuesday night meeting my bf
Immediately I was struck by the beauty of the setting and the energy of the place
Sitting on the patio you truly feel like you are somewhere else
The food was mostly excellent, a few minor misses aside
Easily the best Greek in the city with Volos second
Our waiter was a bundle of energy and charm relocated from mtl
One of the best resto experiences I've had in Toronto!

Trinity brings Greece to Toronto for a real Greek experience
The fresh fish display at the entrance sets the tone , the decor, staff uniforms combine with its location on the bank of lake Ontario takes you. for the time being of one meal, on one of those enchanteresse Island Greece has to offer.
who would know we are still just in the beaches.
but don't forget your wallet ! It is a bit pricy.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh authentic greek!
Food was delicious very fresh. Service was amazing and the ambience very nice! Definitely coming back!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just loved the vibe of this place, the decor and everything about it. Puts you in a good mood. Could use a sign outside so you know you are in the right place
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, great service...oh and amazing food!!!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, I had the Sardines & lemon potatoes.
Thought it was ridiculous that we had to pay for a basket of bread.
Went on a Saturday night, the music was quite loud, I had to scream into my cousin's ear in order to have a conversation with her.
I play my music loud too but when your trying to have dinner it was quite annoying.
Food did not arrive at the same time even though we were told it would.
Restaurant is beautiful. I would come back.

I'm so happy Toronto finally has a much needed upscale Greek restaurant. The space is stunning...the food is delicious...and to my surprise, even though it has only recently opened, the service was perfect (well timed, friendly, and accommodating).

A little piece of Greece in Toronto
My experience at Trinity Taverna was fantastic.
Not only did I have the most charismatic and knowledgeable waiter, but the food and service were both phenomenal.
I will definitely be back many times!

Great restaurant but poor service
Food and atmosphere were incredible, however our waitress did take away from the experience. Tables around us seemed to be getting great service except ours. She didn't take the time to explain the menu and when we asked questions felt like we were making her go out of way. She made a couple mistakes with our order ( I understand mistakes happen ) and when we mentioned it to her she claimed "this is what they gave me ". If it wasn't for the fun energetic atmosphere and great food it could have easily ruined and evening. Would go back again.

Seafood at it's finest
Excellent service....music a bit loud..all around great experience. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful Food, TOO MUCH NOISE
We recently had a lovely meal at Trinity with another couple. There were a couple of blips in the service - it took them w while to take our food order & the waiter completely forgot one of the main courses. They more than made up for this error with apologies & a complimentary bottle of wine. However, I should not leave the restaurant with a sore throat from having to talk over loud music during what should be a lovely dinner. The setting is wonderful, the food excellent, but I would hesitate to go back unless they lower the volume on the music. I would recommend it with the reservation about the noise.

This restaurant took me back
This restaurant took me back to my vacation in the Greek Islands! The decor and service where first class. Not one miss step from our server. The food and presentation was superb! Rarely have I enjoyed a dinner out as much as this. Well done!

The Beaches area has suffered from poor food and ambience.
Now we have this wonderful place that takes full advantage of the beach and parks while still feeling very hip.
The food varies - tomato salad was amazing, the chicken with rice was gummy.
Service also varies - but overall good.
This is worth a look for all of T.O - not just desperate beachers.
I can't wait to go at night and check out the Euro-crowd.

A Great Night Overall
Service was excellent. The waiter (Bill) was attentive, accommodating and had a great sense of humour. The atmosphere was alive and inviting. The appetizers (raw oysters, veal sweetbreads and lamb dumplings) were terrific. None of them disappointed. The only part of the meal that disappointed was the roast lamb. It was dry and overdone. I have had much better.
Overall, I would recommend Trinity Taverna to friends and family and would go back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was excellent and knowledgeable.
His recommendations were right on.
Food was excellent and quite a bit.
The feta cheesecake was insane!!!!

Greek restaurant done right
Not very far off from traditional Greek restaurant that you would eat in the Greek islands. I was very impressed by the overall design and feel of the venue. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. I'm not to similar with Greek wines so that was a bit tough to decide.. But the do have a few options that are not Greek. Great place overall.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been here countless times. It has never disappointed. The food is so yummy and fresh. The ambience is exactly what I need when I go out. The music was just spiking in volume randomly throughout the night which was frustrating and startling, but was not under their control. I just wish someone could make those stuffed loukoumathes! Apparently no one has managed to cook them properly so they will be removing it from the menu. Any takers?
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Little Too Much
A bit too much food was promoted despite our concern and one of the mains was cooked too much causing it to be dry and hard to chew. Would recommend with words of caution.

Went for my birthday last week, with a group of six. The food was excellent. Our waiter was very energetic at first, but once we let him know we weren't in a hurry, he was great and we had a lot of fun. We had lots of great, well prepared appetizers. The spit roasted lamb was really good. All over, a great night!

Fantastic Bday Experience
I have been to Trinity in Montreal 5 years ago and when I heard they opened one in Toronto I was very excited. The restaurant lived up to all of my past expectations and exceeded them. Great staff, wonderful atmosphere and delicious and authentic food.
Must try: tzatziki, zucchini, grilled shrimp, greek salad, lettuce salad, halibut, oysters, Atlantis wine! FRIES! (amazing)
Avoid: grilled octopus (w/ balsamic)
Will visit again for sure.

authentic greek in toronto
loved this restaurant. the food was so authentic for greece and the islands, setting perfect!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Where do I begin?
We were at Trinity celebrating my parent's 40th Anniversary and it was a great experience for them.
It was their first time and Peter and the staff made it a beautiful evening for them.
My parents were raving not only about the food, but the amazing service and exceptional hospitality.
Keep up the outstanding customer service!
We will all definitely be back!

Worth the trek from midtown.
Loved the restaurant. Delicious mezze to start and amazing fresh fish. Would definitely visit again.

The decor is authentic looking
The decor is authentic looking Greek..... Classy side. Food was cooked creatively. The Greek salad was delicious with a different /interesting presentation. Snapper was cooked to perfection. Pork soufla was moist and delicious. Portion sizes are very good. You are able to pick whether you want a smaller or larger size for some of the entrees which is great. Of course, its reflected in the price. Waiter was a little over the top in his enthusiasm but service was very good in spite of this. Greek music would have enhanced the ambiance. Surprisingly, no Greek coffee on the menu.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
you get what you pay for
excellent fresh fish very well prepared and served by knowledgeable staff. Not cheap, but why would it be.

Late lunch with friends and kids
Restaurant lacks high chairs which we requested. But there are plenty of banquettes where you can place a car seat bucket if you have an infant. We didn't bring a stroller and I think it may be a bit hard to navigate it inside. Decor is lovely. There is plenty of seating room for large groups. Restaurant is kid friendly in the early hours (we arrived at 4:30 and stayed till 6:30), but as we were leaving music level went up a few notches. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.
