Nothing to say but GREAT!

My son-in-law booked this restaurant for my daughters birthday for six adults and two 3 year olds! The ambiance was suburb, service excellent and food delicious!

The much anticipated trip to the trough - many consider it the best in Canmore. But when the appetizer hits the table before your cocktail!! In and out in 90 minutes... the food was great and it's a thoughtful wine list, but for a romantic anniversary dinner, I am soooo disappointed... almost two stars

Tried Trough recently and not only were we impressed with the food, but with the service (we find that the service is lacking in most of the restaurants in Canmore, so this was a nice surprise). Nothing bad to say about the food - it was really good! Keep up the good work. We will be back!

Brilliant service and tasty food that is clearly made with good quality ingredients. The owner (Richard) went out of his way to make my boyfriend and I comfortable for dinner.

We often went to The Trough for special occasions. The menu has excellent selections and we have been happy with everything we've ordered. Service was attentive and non-obtrusive. Corkage pretty cheap if you bring your own bottle. We've always felt the money spent was well worth it.

The meal at the Trough was excellent. We took advantage of Uncooked Food and Drink this weekend. A three course meal for $39 each, how can you go wrong. The salad Ceasar was great but the Jerk Ribs were fantastic and extremely tender. The desert were excellent as well. The atmosphere is very quaint. The staff were also excellent. We... More

We visited for a special occasion during the Canmore Uncorked event. The food and wine were excellent and the menu was a bargain as it was a set menu for the food festival. I had the ribs which were sweet and very tender.

we were looking to try some of the local restuarnatns during the Canmore Uncorked food festival and noticed that Trough was on the list. We thought it was time to go back. And we are so glad we did. Though the menu was restricted for the festival what was available was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. We started with a... More

A truly wonderful meal and presentation. The entire dining experience was exceptional and we were treated incredibly well just upon entering the restaurant. Even the bathrooms were fantastic.

I had to give this restaurant three out of five stars because even though the food was excellent I do not feel it deserves to be at the top of the list because I believe it specializes in mainly date nights and high-end business meetings. I took my family of two teens, wife and in-laws here hoping for the perfect... More
