A girlfriend and I chose this restaurant for a nice dinner out, and were so thrilled with every aspect of the experience! The service was incredible, the wine was delicious, the food was over the top (try the muscles - unbelievable), and the ambiance of the restaurant made this the best dining experience I've ever had! Definitely coming back!!!

This was one of the best meals I ate in 2014. I can still remember the delicacy of the truffle oil on the signature bruschetta followed by a delectable lamb shank. Ambience is kind of mountain country-luxe, peaceful, tasteful and the wine selection is good. All this plus pleasant, knowledgeable staff and you have a truly outstanding dining experience. Don't...

The experience starts as soon as you walk in and you are welcomed by Richard the owner. We ordered appetizers which were superb, the bruschetta was so different and so yummy. the Caesar salad so different with home made potato crisp, instead of croutons, the addition of fresh basil is also a nice touch, but so tasty. The tomato soup... More

I am usually pretty easy when it comes to review restaurants but I left with a sour taste in my mouth from our service and that's all I can base this place from. Myself and my girlfriend came here because of the great reviews. We entered and were greeted with a smile from a lovely lady who sat us to... More

We chose The Trough based on Tripadvisor reviews, and once again we chose correctly. Wow, what a great place for a special meal. The service is attentive without being overbearing, our coats were whisked away after we arrived, and our server was prompt with bringing menus, cocktails, topping up water glasses, removing dishes and whatnot. Nothing was rushed, everything was... More

We love the menu, the staff and the ambience! This is a small restaurant, it's romantic, and really not a comfortable place for young children. This is a great place for a small dinner party of friends.

My husband, teenage daughter and myself all enjoyed the food, service and ambiance at this lovely restaurant. The menu is small, but diverse -- I think that's a good thing as it allows them to do an excellent job at the dishes they offer. We all loved our meals (we tried 3 out of the 5 entrees and each was... More

My best friend had her wedding here and the food was amazing. If you just want an intimate dinner for a reception would highly recommend! No room for dancing however. Would imagine it is a great restaurant for dates and regular dinners.

My boyfriend and I visited Trough after a coworker recommended it and after doing some research on TripAdvisor. I cannot say how impressed I was! The food was to DIE for - seriously the best meal I've ever had. We started with the bruschetta - everything you hear about it is true - and for our entrees we had the... More
