    We've been here several times and the food has been good. Good place to meet our friends - it's a half way point to travel for us. I ordered the salmon and it was way over cooked. The service is always great and the bar tender does an excellent job.

    We have been to Trinity several times & were surprised that the restaurant was so empty on a Saturday night. Love the quaint atmosphere in there. Food is consistently good but some of the menu prices are a bit high for the type of food * the area. $34 for an 8oz fillet mignon is on the high side. Loved the vanilla bean vinaigrette salad dressing. I think the locals would not dine here unless it were a special occassion, and I don't think many people outside that area would even know about the restaurant. Service was excellent. I noticed the menu changed and they didn't have burgers etc on the dinner menu any more, but these items would increase business. Overall it is a very clean, charming restaurant and the service is always excellent.

    Dined on 5/31/2013
    The former church setting was unique and provided a romantic setting on the second level. The drinks at the bar were great and bartender very accommodating. The music, a playlist of all types of music, was distracting. Split reviews on food, scallop appetizer and steak main course very good, clams & mussels appetizer no flavor, crab stuffed flounder dry and tasteless. Our server very attentive.

    My husband and I had been to Trinity once before and it was exceptional. We were very disappointed in the food this time. My husband had crab cakes as he had before and this time they were full of breading instead of crab. He said the pea soup was very good, though. I had the maui which was fair with some garden vegetables. It was fair and not enough to eat. The spinach salad with strawberries was just OK, I would not go back again.

    This is one of the area restaurants I turn to for special occasions. The restaurant is located inside a converted church, which is quite charming, the food is good and the wait staff is always attentive. What more could you ask for? We went there for Mother's Day and had a wonderful dinner. Because of the holiday, there was a pre fix menu, 3 courses for $30 per person. There was a nice variety on the menu for appetizer, salad and entree. Dessert and coffee was a nominal charge above the pp charge. I had the flat steak. It was done just right and was flavorful and tender. For the appetizer, I had clams and mussels in a delicious broth and a spinach salad that was fresh and delicious. All in all a wonderful meal.

    Trinity has the ingredients to be a special place, but there's work to be done. Set in what used to be a church, the restaurant with adjustments could be quite special. But at the moment, it's not. Indeed, on the quiet evening when we there, it was depressing. Between the lighting and the drab colors of the tablecloths, it presents a heavy feeling. The food presentation has an aura of trying too hard to be creative. Definitely needs to be simplified. We had no qualms about the service. With a brightening/freshening of the ambiance and sharper focus on the cuisine, Trinity may hit the mark. Until then, it's an OK that could rise above the crowd if efforts were made to address the shortfalls.

  • Needs Vegetarian Entrees
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/20/2013
    Place was beautiful and the company was fun---we had a great time. Unfortunately, absolutely zero vegetarian entrees, and the Chicken Milanese was bland. I loved how beautiful the church/restaurant was and took some great photos. However, I won't be eating there again. Our server was named Christian (appropriately) and he was fantastic. We were in the third floor room and there was just one table set up there which was really private and unique. He was knowledgable and very attentive, despite having to climb all those steps each time he brought out our food! The menu boasted 'Gluten Free' entrees, but really---couldn't they have some vegetarian?

    Trinity participated in The Shore Restaurant week promotion and offered an intriquing menu that for the price seemed a great value. The food was very good and presented artfully and mostly in good portions especially the entrees. Our gaucho steaks were winners and cooked perfectly. The chicken milanese was another overdsized plate. Starters while very good were meager with only two scallops on one order and two asparagus on another starter. Id suggest going with their hummus which was excellent and proper sized. Restaurants if participating in Shore Rest Wk need to rethink their menu to find a balance on the size of their plating versus making a profit.Service was an issue and I spoke to the owner- manager about it afterward.

    I haven't been here in 3 years. 3 years ago it was awesome. Last night was awful. The food was blah and not good. Much like a chain instead of what I remember (different and delicious and gourmet). The service was horrible. The server was not professional at all. The worst and most rude thing was they kicked us out at 9;15 on a Friday night. They rushed us so much and kept trying to clear plates we were still eating. Then the server made dessert sound unappetizing- she tried to talk us out of ordering it. We foolishly did order and then as soon as we paid, she came over and told us we needed to leave. 9:15 shouldn't be closing a restaurant with a bar on a Friday night. I will never go back :(

    Despite some quite tasty food, this is the second and last time we will patronize this restaurant. The service is just awful. No acknowledgment for 20 minutes after being seated, and downhill from there. The coup de grâce was one of the servers, who appeared intoxicated, asking of two Pellegrino bottles on our table, "Ya done with these?" and proceeding to pick them up by sticking her fingers in the bottles. Needless to say, we were done after that, both with the water and the restaurant.

    Located in a refurbished church, we went to Trinity for New Years Eve for an early dinner. The place has great ambiance and the five course prize fixe menu offered a great variety of options. Each dish from appetizer to dessert was executed very well both from taste & presentation. Service was attentive and accommodating. Quite pleased with our decision to go to Trinity and would whole-heartedly recommend.

    I found Trinity on Open Table because I needed a place to have dinner that was close in proximity to the PNC Arts Center. We told the host that we were there to see a concert and would love it if our dinner could come out expeditiously. We sat upstairs which was very cool. Our waitress was lovely and completely accommodating. She brought out our drinks as well as our food very quickly and it was all delicious. We loved it and we are foodies!!

    This was the 2nd time we were at Trinity and it wasn't even close to the 1st experience. 1st of all the ac was broken and it was over 80 degrees in the restaurant. 2nd, the waitress was surly. 3rd the wedge dressing was way too spicy and the shrimp scampi had so little garlic that it was basically tastless. It is a really cute restuarant and we love the idea of recycling an old church for this use. Because we liked it so much the 1st time we'll probably try it again and just hope this was an unusual experience.

    Food was top notch!!! When a chef uses the best ingredients to prepare a meal it shows. I have no issue with price when this is the case. On the other hand, while I know they use fresh fruits in their cocktails, you simply cannot justify $12 drinks in Keyport NJ!!!! When we arrived, we were seated in the upstairs section. Mostly empty except for a few tables. We were seated right in the middle of the other parties. would have been nice if they split us up considering when I made the reservations I stated it was an anniversary celebration. The upstairs area could also use a little more in the way of decor. Thankfully, the food overrides any minor complaints there may be!!

    Trinity was a lovely treat for Mother's Day. We were served at a relaxed pace, quite a departure from the usual maddening crowds and rush of a typical Mothers Day restaurant scene! The food was great & wait staff polite & professional. The atmosphere was so charming and unique it added to the overall pleasant experience.

Our server, Michael, was knowledgeable, and nice, however, he had to many tables to serve, and therefore the service was slow. The food was good, but not great. Simply put, Trinity has a nice atmosphere, unerstaffed, and average food. We will give the restaurant another opportunity

    My wife and I decided to break from our usual haunts and branch out. We are certainly glad we did. The greeting at the entrance was warm, the gloom from the outside mist faded as the impressively transformed space opened up in front of us. The former church still evident in the massive expanse of the dining area, we were directed to our table tucked away against the wall and warmly greeted by our server Melanie. She handled herself well, attentive but not overly so, and served us with the added benefit of being the chef's girlfriend adding unique insight into the menu. The food was great overall, my filet mignon cooked perfectly, my wife's fish tender and well seasoned. A small complaint with the crab cake appetizer - too much filler!
