We were two tired travellers so ate in this restaurant which is attached to our hotel. We were greeted warmly and given a seat right away. The wait staff were attentive to the patrons and seemed to enjoy their jobs. The food was good. We each had a bowl of soup and unless you are a lumberjack I doubt anyone... More

I frequently travel and dine in many restaurants in the run of a year. I have only once ever taken the time to review a hotel or restaurant, but felt the need to do so again today. I was having a bad day, 3 hour am business meeting did not go as anticipated.. decided to go for lunch at the... More

We dined here as a large group and every one of us LOVED our meal. The waiter knew the menu and could advise us on all dishes and every single dish was perfect.

We chose this restaurant on the basis of its menu and the fact that the seafood, scallops in particular is seared as opposed to deep-fried. Wine list is a good mix of Nova Scotian and imported. Much of the food is locally sourced. We skipped the appetizers and went straight for the mains which were well prepared and well presented.... More

Based upon the reviews here, for my last night in Halifax I wanted a nice lobster dinner. Trendz came up as a viable solution. When served, the lobster head on the plate was HUGH. I asked the host/waiter "where is the meat?" He turned the plate and said "this one had very little meat". I was going to say something... More

I was sorry to read that you were not pleased with your experience at Trendz. Your choice of the 1lb Lobster at your request of having it served out of the shell typically yields 4-5oz of meat. When it is served in this manor 4-5oz on a plate will only take up a small space as opposed to having it... More

Ate here over the weekend while staying at the Best Western Plus. Was very pleased with the meal, a good selection of items on the menu and decently priced. Had the beef ravioli, was very good. Service was attentive and looked after us great. Some reviewers say it lacks atmosphere, but I thought it was decent... I will be back!
