Diner Reviews
  • "I went there with 3 girlfriends and we had a nice time. Food was very good but very heavy on the seafood and I would have liked a couple more non-seafood options for mains."

  • "A special brunch with my son was enhanced by excellent service and superb food. The starter jumbo shrimp and calamari were exceptional. The bottle of white from Santorini was lovely. The hostess was delightful and the waiter was friendly, helpful and diligent. Will definitely be back."

  • "This not the cheapest Greek in Toronto but the quality of the sophisticated food and service matches the price. High quality food with a Greek twist"

  • "When you consider how good the food is, the prices on the higher scale. You would expect better service, It's unfortunate because this is a good overall concept."

  • "Right from the great big blue door with the cow bell to the white walls with the icons, you get the sense that you are not in Toronto but somewhere else like a Greek island. The ambience is beautiful and the vibe is lively. If you're looking for a quiet stuffy place to eat then this is not the place for you. The food choices were all amazing I wish I could have tried them all.... Guess I'll have to go back!! What we did eat though was all superb. Our waiter was friendly and not to mention cute!! Bonus for me! :) Loved loved this place and will definitely be coming back! A little on the pricey side $200 for 2 of us and that's with only 2 glasses of wine but the whole atmosphere was worth it!! Treat yourselves!!"

  • "The seafood at this restaurant is, simply, outstanding. The ambiance makes you feel like you've just flown to Santorini or Mikonos."

  • "We checked out Trinity just after the holidays and had a fantastic night so we figured we'd try again. Food was fantastic and despite the all Greek wine list, I really don't know my Greek wines at all, we loved the bottle recommended by Gord (was was our first server and recognized us). It was suggested we try a White Snapper (never had it before) between 4 and it was simply prepared and simply delicious. The tapas style starters were really tasty, especially the dumplings. Best of all (???) was that we got stranded as it snowed heavily while we were eating, the owners wife gave us a lift home. LOL !!! Hows that for AMAZING service. Love it and can't wait to go back !!!"

  • "This was my 3rd time at Trinity. I can say the atmosphere is casual yet slightly upscale and the service decent, but what I wish they'd pay more attention to is giving value for the higher prices that they demand. No one in the city of TO charges $7.00 for a bread basket (3 pcs cut in half). Nor $15.00 for micro mini lamb shish kebob sticks on pita bread. For sure since our last visit, (2 mos. ago), their portions sizes on salads, octopus and lamb sticks has gotten noticeably smaller. As a regular restaurant goer in Toronto for 20+years I appreciate when an establishment gives good service, (beginning to end) and has professionals in the kitchen knowing when a dish is just too skimpy to send out Note: indigenous Greek wine was nice"

  • "Totally enjoyed our evening! Service of the upstairs dinning room was perfect. Lights were dimmed, candles and impeccable service. Very well put together menu for the occasion of Valentines, the Restaurant Manager came to introduce himself and took care of a concern we had promptly. Tried some new wines and loved that we never felt rushed and left to enjoy the seafood and lamb at our own pace. Presentations were nice, food cooked with flavour and to our liking. Will deff return this summer, the location by the lake will be perfect for a long afternoon of lazy lunch and drinks on the back patio. Do give this place a try!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very cool place, but not enough for the price. The food was like all the Greek food I've tryed so far in Toronto, just not Greek. We had seafood and fish wich was ok but the basic like french fries was like super heated in microwaves. I can't really find a reason to eat again there. Maybe for a drink at the bar and no fries..."

  • "From our first moments with our server, Sandra, we were greatly impressed by The ambience and attitude of this new, dynamic restaurant on Lakeshore Ave., East. Being new to authentic Greek cuisine, we were somewhat clueless as to how to rightly interpret the menu. Sensing that, our server intuited our needs and recommended some excellent choices, from appetizer to mean course to desert, for which she spoke candidly about the better choice. The entire experience was delightful, a lovely Valentines day outing with my wife, who also was mightily impressed. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "This was our third time dining at Trinity & we found the service much improved. The waiter was timely in taking our order, his service was attentive & inobtrusive & the sommelier was excellent in his knowledge & recommendation of the wine. I still find the noise level too loud & "techno" for an evening of fine dining. Is it meant to be a "disco" or a fine restaurant? If it is to be a Greek Taverna - the music doesn't quite match that definition either. As a woman I found the extremely short skirts & tights that the female wait staff were wearing a little too inappropriate. The men are wearing blue jeans & the women have to wear sexually suggestive uniforms - not appropriate!"

  • "All personal were friendly, and professional and contributed to great dining experience, but the waiter Mr. Constandinos (The Greek guy) was impressively, fast, kind, and enthusiastic about his job. All other personnel were also ten out of 10. One remark though, while all food was delicous, we have expected little bit more meat and less bones in the lamb. Maybe next time you will offer a little bit better on this issue. This is not a criticism, just an honest opinion about our expectations from the place of your standard."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Service was too personal, too intrusive, not on point and unskilled...The restaurant is beautifully Greek-inspired but the female uniforms need to go now (white cocktail-like dresses covered in lace and white hosiery...looks like my grandmothers doylie collection). Food was very good for Greek in the city. Notable, all-Greek wine list. Cocktails need work. Cafe's are from a Nespresso machine rather than a traditional one...its very noticeable. I would go back but just not often."

  • "This place is unique and has great potential, just did not seem like anyone was running the operations. The designers have done an awesome job and it's a great product in an amazing location, waiting to be managed right."

  • "I made a reso 2 weeks prior to our visit & we were sat at a table right by the door. I said nothing because I assumed the restaurant would soon fill but I remained less then half full. I feel the food was grossly overpriced and although the portions were large it would have been nice to have been told and as a result we would have ordered half the amount. Although our waitress was attentive she did forget my husbands meal and he had to waive her down to ask her where it was. No apology not acknowledge just a simple oh yes, it's coming. And it did, 25 minutes after we had all already started eating."

  • "As for a seat away from windows if there in the winter otherwise you and your meal will cool off real quick! Good for special occasion as the prices warrant that."

  • "We ordered dips which were delicious, but were very surprised that we were charged for the bread that accompanied the dips. When asked for more bread to finish our dips, we were charged again!! Also surprised that they don't serve "greek" coffee in a greek restaurant Pricey, given the casual atmosphere and rushed service....need to slow it down..."

  • "The appetizers were good, the fish was fresh. In my opinion the dishes are way overpriced. We were a group of seven. Shared the appetizers and ordered only three fish ( 2 sea bass and 1 red snapper). Had one bottle of wine ( 40 $) and we paid $ 125.00 each. We will probably not go back there. Toronto has other very good fish restaurants, which are not as expensive."

  • "For sure one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a LONG time! Excellent food and service, great ambience, and pure surprise of a gem. The menu has taken traditional greek food and placed a modern twist onto it. Great job, innovative and definitely will go back!"

  • "We had heard good things about Trinity Taverna so booked dinner for four to entertain friends visiting from out of town. While the food was fabulous and the service second to none, the decibel level of the pounding music was overwhelming. Conversation was not remotely possible without shouting. When asked, the waiter did turn the volume down somewhat, but as soon as we asked for the check, the music was booming again. And this was at 6pm - an early dinner so that we could attend a concert downtown - at 9 or 10pm, I could understand the volume being cranked, but not at this early hour."

  • "A restaurant that people will travel for. The Beach is not well known for gastronomic experimentation. Trinity puts this area of the city on the map. Healthy Mediterranean diet at its freshest and tastiest. Yum!.( You won't find overdone fish or greasy lamb chops here - you do get what you're paying for). Contemporary, vibrant. setting, At times the music a tad too energetic, but hey this is a Greek restaurant and it's not bazooka. At first happy to order the house white but found it rather bland. Friendly, helpful, attentive staff."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, the ambiance is great, but frankly, the service ruined the whole experience. It was slow, even though the restaurant wasn't that busy, and our waiter was completely unpleasant. When you are spending that amount of money, you expect to be treated civilly and perhaps, maybe even get a smile from your waiter. Neither happened for us. It was very disappointing."

  • "Had been for lunch & dinner… Was hoping for an exceptional Friday evening with out-of-town guests… unfortunately, even with a reservation, we were put at a noisy, high-traffic table beside the bar… when we asked to be moved the hostess never came… we were left standing… so we moved ourselves to an empty corner… I was appalled at that kind of treatment… The music was so loud we couldn't hear across the table and had to ask twice to turn it down… The food was great (too salty for me personally), but still exceptional… although my friend (with an ulcer) who wanted grilled fish was confused & upset that it came swimming in oil… the service was hit & miss… If we weren't in conversation the wait time between courses would have been a joke…"

  • "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."

  • "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."
