Our dinner at The Trough was easily the best meal of our visit to Canmore. It is a very small and intimate room, so reservations are highly recommended. Service was very thorough, but not intrusive at all. I had the signature dish, Jerk Ribs, and they were very good. It was a very hot evening, but we moved to a... More

Had an excellent dinner here with my wife in early July. Menu is a bit on the smaller side but all the dishes we selected were very well prepared. Although it seems a bit normal, the bruschetta we had here was probably the best I've had in my life. Highly recommended as its worth the money and the food was... More

The Trough at 725 9th street is a small, high end restaurant serving dinner. 9th is a narrow street 1 block west of 8th Street, the main downtown Canmore street. It’s an indoor restaurant and not noisy. Very nice presentations, good portions, and good service. Entrees range $35-40 My wife and I had dinner at The Trough and enjoyed it.... More

I walked in and the venue was able to accommodate me. Extremely personalized service and amazing food. I needed one night to treat myself, and I am glad I did. Beautiful presentation of a delicious white fish. Would highly recommend it.

We managed to get a last minute reservation due to a cancellation. This is a tiny restaurant with a small menu, but we had difficulty deciding what to order. The meals are all beautifully presented (try the Bruschetta) and truly delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful, and although we got there fairly late, they did not try to rush... More

This was our second visit to The Trough, we enjoyed it as much as the first time. We sat on the covered patio. The wait staff were attentive but did not rush. Yes, the menu is limited but we still had a hard time deciding what to eat. Presentation is beautiful and the taste delicious. It has become a must... More

The Trough is over priced for the quality and quantity of food served. The menu is extremely limited between appetizers (Laurel) and main entrees (Hardy). We were a group of six adults and nobody was overly excited about their food. The presentation was good and they have really unique serving dishes. I had their signature jerk spare ribs. Watermelon and... More

Don't let the name of the restaurant fool you. This is simply the best Canmore has to offer. The menu is small but everything is delicious. The atmosphere is quaint and very welcoming. The staff and servers are extremely friendly and accomodating. We dine here everytime we come to Canmore. Don't miss out!
