About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Situated in the Historic French Quarter, Trinity is steps away from many of the city's finest hotels and most interesting attractions. Boasting a large bar, polished cocktail program and smart wine selections, as well as a balcony overlooking lower Decatur St., Trinity provides a refined, casual atmosphere suited for any occasion, or no occasion at all.
Trinity's menu is an homage to the history and the future of New Orleans cuisine. Drawing inspiration from the cultures that once shaped Southeast Louisiana and those that shape it today, Trinity's menu will walk through France, Italy, Vietnam, Latin America, and Cajun Country.

Open for brunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 11:00a - 3:00pm, serving dishes such as Wagyu Burger & Fries, Shrimp & Linguini, Boudin Noir & Fried Oysters, and a selection of traditional breakfast items.

I was very embarrassed that I had made reservations 2 months ago and received a confirmation reminder the day before and the place was closed!! We were so excited and traveled just for this event. We had to then wait forever for a table at another restaurant. I am not one to ever complain or even write reviews, but feel like the company (OpenTable) should know. We never get a chance to go anywhere and it was just disappointing.

This place closed down 4 days before the reservations I made. Nobody reached out to let me know so we showed up and needless to say it threw a wrench in my friends bachelorette party plans. However we went to the country club and that place is amazing. IF YOU WANT A DRAG BRUNCH, THE COUNTRY CLUB HAS SEATING AT THE BAR AND IS A STELLAR TIME!!! TRINITY SUCKS

I booked ahead for a party of 7 on Easter Sunday. It was a total cluster. Two tables next to us weren't bussed; we sat for awhile before ever greeted; we had to ask for the menus; the server was making us pass down out our water glasses instead of coming around the table and serving properly. The acoustics upstairs were piercingly loud. Also, we came to find out someone no showed so our server was on his own. All of this aside, the restaurant ran out of food. Our admitted that he was actively looking for jobs elsewhere...so it seems that this is not a first time thing. I felt sorry for him, but in the same breath, he didn't seem to care at all or want to try to hustle and make some money, but I suppose there was no food to be served. I am in the hospitality industry in the city, and have never gotten up to leave a restaurant, until now. The space is really lovely, but I do not see this establishment lasting. Reluctantly, I would strongly recommend going elsewhere.

Good food and great bread but the menu didn’t have too many options (kids might not find what they want). The service was great. We came early and the restaurant was pretty empty but the room and decor are nice.

Trinity restaurant is going through a transition is what we were told. There was a very limited menu which was disappointing and many wines not available. After some insistence, management did accommodate some of our requests. Our server tried to make the best of the situation. However, Trinity did not meet our expectations and I cannot recommend Trinity at this time.

No champagne glasses, beet salad was good, pork belly was very disappointing. It had very little flavor. Veal was ok, but not served hot. The seafood lasagna was dry.

This is a great facility gone to waste.

Food was just ok as was service and there were only 6 people in the restuarant.
Very un inspired food and presentation.

Would not go back nor recommend and under previous ownership several years ago this place was a hidden gem.

Food was ok, nothing to get excited about. Menu is limited and in my opinion does not match the description (Cajun/creole). Service was slow and a bit sloppy, with some confusion regarding our order and the same questions repeated by different waiters

I have been going there for about a year. It's very close to other places I frequent. This dining experience was horrible. I understand that our wait staff was new. I had asked for my bill at 7:10pm as my friend needed to get to work. There were probably 8 people in the whole restaurant. My waitress walked by me no less than 3-4 times until at 7:35pm I said "miss, I need my bill". At 7:40 I asked her again and her response was that the computerb system was down. I then told her to estimate it and that I would be leaving in 5 minutes. The chef then came over and was very rude. He said something like "we are a mom and pop place and things happen from time to time". I told him I get that but I am not spending my friday night waiting on a bill for two appetizers and a drink. He then went on to say " you upper echelon people" think we're above others. I told him that wasn't the case at all and to give me a bill. He then told me he would just pay for my meal and I told him no that was not what I was asking for. I told him I needed to know an estimate so I could tip the server. He told me $50 so I left a $20 tip for the server. This is NOT what I would expect in the service industry (especially in New Orleans). And I would never chastise a guest diner ( I have 2 restaurants of my own)

This restaurant is beautiful. I do like the bartender. I unfortunately have lost my desire to go back based on this Chefs' poor interpersonal skills.

Drag brunch is a MUST DO!!! Great show! Food was excellent! The praline bacon wasn’t quite as crispy as I like so order it crispy if that’s how you prefer it. Blueberry pancakes are huge! Our group had a fantastic time celebrating our friend’s bachelor party! Check it out next time you’re in NOLA!

We were the only customers at this restaurant yet the service was mediocre at best. We could smell marijuana wafting in from the back of the restaurant. Service took far too long. Pork appetizer was excellent. Veal was greasy and heavy. It lacked in flavour. Salad with goat cheese lacked in flavour. Kitchen and server forgot to add tartar sauce to catfish dish which was clearly described on the menu.

The marble table and bar tops caught my eye first (okay, maybe a recommendation to try the savory beignets caught my ear first...which did not at ALL disappoint), but with the tiered seating in the back giving a top-down look at the kitchen experience and the beautiful natural lighting from the moon light windows overhead, this place surely looked to be a winner. The aioli that the beignets came with had us licking the serving dish, the cocktails were tasty, and the waitress was well-versed in mixology. We had only a bit of confusion surrounding happy hour and what we could order off of the happy hour menu and where (Bar top only? Drinks only? Happy hour food, too?) but otherwise really enjoyed ourselves!

The drag brunch was amazing and entertaining! The queens were fabulous.

The food was OK, my burger was overcooked even though I requested medium rare, and the shrimp and grits my friend ordered was very salty. Otherwise we had a great time and it would be wonderful for a bachelorette or birthday party!

We enjoyed a variety of small plates and a bottle of rose. Our favorites were the crawfish beignets, French fries, corn maque choux, and chargrilled oysters (perfectly grilled and delicious). The pork belly was good, but the sauce was a little sweeter than I would have preferred.

From the beginning, this was a catastrophe. We were seated at the last table in the restaurant, right next to the kitchen door and the lengthy bathroom line. The room was overwhelmed by a group in three booths who were so loud, it made it impossible to have a conversation. The wait and kitchen staff seemed disorganized, flustered and completely ill prepared for what appeared to be a reasonable number of people in the restaurant. There was a private event upstairs that consumed their focus. It took 15 minutes before our waiter visited our table, at least another 20 minutes before the first dishes arrived and then another 30 minutes before the main courses arrived and when they did, an ordered dish was missing. In between all this time, the waiter was nearly non-existent. On the positive side, the oysters were good and the mixed green salad with goat cheese and capers was very fresh and nicely dressed. The main courses we well flavored and cooked well. But, it was simply a disaster of a dining experience from front of house, to the bar, to the waitstaff, to the kitchen staff, to the bus staff.

Nothing was special about this place. They were trying to pull off fine-dining, but the food and service didn’t live up to it. In the end we had bland over priced fish and a soggy salad with some of the worst service we’ve seen in New Orleans. Wouldn’t recommend.

Being visitors to New Orleans, we made the mistake of making a reservation during a parade, so just getting to the restaurant was an adventure! The menu is limited to begin with and since there was a large party upstairs for the parade, they were out of chargrilled oysters and bread pudding, both of which we were planning to order. We had the chicken and fish dishes as well as the grilled zucchini. The dishes were well prepared, tasty and had nice presentation.

Attended show/brunch for my sister’s 71st birthday and we had a blast! The bottomless mimosas were yummy and the food super delicious. We are SO glad we went. The Girls of Trinity were amazing to watch and very interactive with the guests. We will definitely do it again next year during our annual trek to New Orleans (and we never repeat experiences, but this so worth it!

Trinity was a good experience except for the service. Our Server Steve during the drag brunch was rude and I felt rushed, I get its a timed event as brunch but it could have been handled better when I couldn’t decide on food, he could have made suggestions instead of making a customer feel hostile.
