We recently dined at the Black Trumpet for lunch and had a wonderful experience - the food was excellent and our server was a very friendly and helpful young man. The weather was nice, so we dined on the outdoor patio - a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Try the kimchi ribs - yummmmm! We'll definately be back!

Grew up in London and since have moved to Winnipeg. Whenever I am back in London for a special occasion we try to make this place our dinner choice. The food is absolutely top notch. The menu would appeal to anyone and there is NOTHING on it that has not been amazing (we have tried close to everything). The service... More

I went here with clients and colleagues and thought it was great. Due to the size and nature of our party, we were seated on the top floor of the restaurant in a room to ourselves. The food selections were varied and all looked delicious (my pasta dish was wonderful). The portion sizes were HUGE and the deserts delectable. The... More

First time at the Black Trumpet and was impressed. The menu is varied, the portions are ample and the service is excellent. You can choose upscale food and wine but they offer options for all. Everything was prepared to perfection and delivered in a perfectly coordinately manner. Thank you!!

Very comfortable space and the lighting is pleasant. Service is always average to excellent. Food is always done as expected, quality is always fair. And the portion is very nicely controlled. Perfect to-go place in downtown if you want some nice relaxing dinning experience.

We went to the Black Trumpet for the first time on Valentine's Day and the evening was perfect. The food was exquisite and the service we received was fantastic. Kim, our server, was a gem. We will definetly be returning and we can't wait for nicer weather to enjoy the outdoor patio! It is pricey but well worth it in... More
