Dartmouth's hidden gem

In the Best Western Hotel; a little out of the way but rarely busy and the food is excellent. I have never left disappointed.

We truly appreciate the kind review Doug and thank you for taking the time to do so. We may not be right in the downtown core but as you stated, the food won`t disappoint and we are merely a few turns off the highway offering free parking and tremendous service. More

Came here with the whole family (11 of us) which included small children and we had the best experience. Our server Chris was top notch, possibly the best server I have ever encountered. We all ordered different meals and 10/11 thought their meal was fantastic. My daughter didn't love her meal but said that it was good- just not the... More

Definitely the best seafood chowder I've ever had....sorry dad! Dad's has always been tops. Terry, with his expertise, helped me with my choices of food and wine. I definitely give Trendz & Terry five stars.

Terence is fantastic. The sirloin was cooked to perfection and the scallops sort of melted in my mouth.

We made reservations for the Valentine's special because the menu looked so good that we had difficulty making our choices. The food was well prepared and presented, but the evening suffered because of very poor service. Our server admitted at the end that she was new to the restaurant so did not know the procedures, but is that any reason... More

My husband and I treat ourselves to a fancy dinner out once a month. We've picked Trends a few times now because the service is top notch! Both times we were lucky to have Chris - he is such a pleasant and humerus individual. Certainly an asset to Trends and one of our favourite servers in the HRM. He should... More

Me and the kids dropped in for brunch as we do from time to time. I stepped outside the box this time and had the trendz burger which I have during lunches before.

I paid a visit to the Trendz in Halifax a while back, which was a very satisfying experience, so I thought this one would be just as nice. The parking is better, as in more and free but the inside atmosphere is slightly less appealing. It's still very nice but a tad smaller. The service was just as good, which... More
