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

Great ambiance. Quiet place where we were not rushed and the and service were great. A nice way to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends. I go there quite often and have never been disappointed.

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 normally ask for all the condiments which include the regular ketchup mustard and relish. The server came back and told me that they were unfortunately out... More

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

Great place to catch up with friends as the atmosphere was quiet and not busy. Service was slow and drinks and meals were pricey for the location. Food was above average but not justifiable to the price. Will most likely not return as there are better restaurants in the area.

Good Day SaSaa_12, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are glad you enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

No matter what season or time of the day we have frequented this restaurant, the food (regular and gluten free) is absolutely fixed to perfection. Salmon, Fish/Chips, Tenderloin, Chicken Medallions, Ceasar Salad, Sticky Pudding, Lemon Mousse, etc. is always just an epicurean delight.

We found this lovely little spot in Dartmouth while waiting to pick up a couple of function goers taking place at the hotel. The place was spotless and the service appeared happy (other than the little lady complaining that she had to be back at 6 am to wait Breakfast tables). The bartender was excellent, very professional and knew her... More
