Trendy presentation and entrees executed to perfection! First class fare with an intimate atmosphere. A romantic gem but also served us well with a large group and 20ish 50ish and 80ish folks all enjoyed.

We showed up here on a Friday night without a reservation. Initially we were told we were out of luck but then they said we could sit at the bar. The food was amazing!!! Sablefish cooked perfectly and overall great ambiance. Service was friendly and attentive. Loved being able to watch the chefs in the kitchen!

Would not have found this restaurant unless it had been recommended by a local resident. What a find, meals were first class, tasty and thoroughly enjoyable. Menu is limited and changes often because they source fresh produce. Best to book in advance because the restaurant gets very busy.

Expect to be impressed with the food experience at The Trough. The chef is outstanding in taste and presentation from start to finish. We had outstanding jerk spiced ribs and smoked sable fish, ending with sticky toffee pudding and the most delicate creme brulee we have ever had.

Great ambience at this restaurant; it is small, intimate, and dark! We had great service, but it was a Tuesday night and not busy. The bruschetta is wonderful - not like we're used to, but a delightful surprise. The ribs are their specialty, but we've honestly had better elsewhere. The $38 price tag is high, although the serving is more... More

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

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! They do not have a children's menu but we shared our meals ( which were very generous) and the staff was very tolerant of the children and still provided the best of service. I... More

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.
