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. The seafood was spectacular and can I encourage you to have the lobster poutine - sublime seafood reduction covering beautiful, tender lobster on the best fries. And... More

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

There was Eggs Benedict, bacon, sausage, waffles (with all the fixin's) and breakfast potato for the Breakfast items. For the cold there was cold... 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!

Stopped by for lunch with my wife recently for the first time....wish I would have done so sooner! The menu is great, prices are reasonable and the service and atmosphere are top notch. We each had a sandwich combo, but they are not ordinary sandwiches and tasted great. The daily special soup was a garlic honey beef, and was probably... More

A retirement celebration dinner. The wait staff were so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the salmon; I ordered the mashed potatoes instead of the rice.

There were four of us looking for a quiet, yet nice place to celebrate the end of 2013. Trendz Cafe & Wine Bar was perfect. It was quiet (except for the occasional horn blowing), the tables were not crammed together. The food and choices were a hit with our crowd of slightly picky people. The place was not crowded and...
