My friend and I looked at tripadvisor when looking for a place to eat. This restaurant was ranked very high so we made a reservation. When we walked in it was a small but cozy atmosphere. We looked at the menu and realized maybe we should have looked before we sat down. There was only 4 entrees to pick from... More

The restaurant is small, and required a booking. The food was served in adequate portions and very good.

Make your reservations early, because this restaurant is absolutely the BEST in Canmore! Great atmosphere, great wines, and the best dinner I've had in ages. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Enjoyed dinner here during the Christmas break. Not a huge menu, but something for everyone. Service was pleasant and excellent. We enjoyed bruschetta, jerk seasoned baby back ribs, salmon and creme brulee. All were outstanding. The ambience is perfect - small restaurant, warm, cozy and classy. Prepare to spend some money, but well worth it.

Had a fabulous meal at The Trough on December 22 with our adult children. The food was amazing and we had excellent service from the young man who was our waiter who was friendly and professional. We've spent quite a bit of time in Canmore and have eaten at many different restaurants in this town but this is one place... More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner on a Saturday evening. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation as it was a full house. Our waitress was fantastic and gave us great drink recommendations. We got the scallops and pork belly to start. It tasted amazing and was the perfect size to share with someone. For dinner... More

Food and atmosphere and waitress was amazing!!! Great time! The duck was to die for. And the appetizers fantastic and really looked after my seafood allergy. My gf ate some scallops for a appy and they came and wiped table again once she was done. Had the creme brulle desert and brownie. Both awesome. Overall a great date night! Definetly... More

I have walked by trough numerous time but had never given it a try. It is in an obscure alleyway and the outside is very understated. We gave it a try and I am sold. The service, the food and the ambience were fantastic! A great evening! I'll definitely be back!
