Fabulous food, very nicely presented and friendly attentive staff. All four meals tasted really good. Would recommend it, but it is a bit pricey!

We had a great meal at The Trough. Our waiter, Kyle, was very helpful. We had the duck and also the baby back ribs. Both were outstanding. The drinks were good, although not very strong. Sangria could use a bit more kick to it, but was still very enjoyable.

Once again, another enjoyable meal. Superb service. Our waiter (Kyle) was very knowledgeable and a gem to put up with our shenanigans....he played right along! The food was out of this world good. The bruschetta that we started with was not overbearing in taste and oil, but light and delicious. Perfect. The baby back ribs were fall off the bone... More

Decor, ambiance, staff, and the food....all made for a very pleasurable meal experience. I had to change my reservation time twice and staff were very accommodating.

We thought dining at the trough would be one to remember. But the food and the service was not overly memorable. We paid a lot of money for a meal that wasn't overly balanced in flavour. We might come back and try it again, but we are in no hurry.

Unfortunately, I have to write a very, *very* poor review for what was for many years my favourite restaurant. Another guest did a fine job of summing up the night here: http://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowUserReviews-g181727-d781583-r206255793-The_Trough_Dining_Co-Canmore_Kananaskis_Country_Alberta.html#REVIEWS However, One thing she forgot to add was that not just her Tuna was "blah" at best, but everybody's meal ranged from poor to blah.

Restaurant was good looking, even with the very minor construction that was going on out front. Service was average, nothing special but nothing outright wrong either. Food was well prepared, well composed, even though we were the last seated table for the night. Had the steelhead trout special, fish was very well cooked, nice glaze to the top, moist tender...

We drove from Calgary to Canmore for dinner on Friday night with some friends. We had made a reservation and it was a good thing we did as it was quite steady. Our server was very good and helpful but reminded us on a few occasions that the table was booked after us and alluded to the fact that we... More
