Wow - a new restaurant is opening at Boardwalk Place? I thought there was a strangle hold on that area by that horrible Boardwalk restaurant!!! Do the same people own Trinity, or can we hope that this area may be allowed to develop? It is a shame what's been going on there for years!

Earlier today, my husband and I visited the Trinity Taverna for our first and probably our last time. We were quite dissatisfied by our dining experience. To start, both of us ordered an alcoholic beverage - my husband a Sapporo and I had a glass of white wine. The beer (draft) cost $9 for a diminutive pint.The wine was $9 for a 4 oz glass (I may be being generous in my approximation). Substandard. As one of our starters, we shared the trios dip. Our waitress asked us if we would like pita with our dip. It wasn't until we viewed our bill that we learned that in addition to the $11 that we paid for the dip, we were also charged $6 for the pita. The remainder of our meal was hit or miss. The village salad and baby calamari were yummy. However, the octopus was very chewy. We reside in the area and were excited to try out the Trinity Taverna. We are quite sociable and often enjoy drinks and dinner out with friends. However, this would not be our restaurant/bar of choice, strictly based upon the value for liquor and food; it just is not worth the money. Our light lunch cost $120! Thus, we will not be returning. You cannot market your establishment solely based upon location!
