Good Day Jill Thank you for taking the time to review Trendz. We are a little puzzled with the salty remark as we use very little salt in the cooking process here. All ingredients are local and our chef's recipes are designed to have the food cook as naturally as possible. Salt can be added at the table by the... More

The food was really good and the banana bread pudding was the highlight. The ceasar salad was delicious as well.

My husband and I have dined here on two different occasions and both times we were very pleased with this restaurant. Service was excellent, both our waitresses were very friendly and helpful. The food was fabulous along with the presentation. We will certainly be going back. Would highly recommend you try Trendz!

My wife, mother and I tried the Mother's day brunch this year. The price was reasonable @ $29.99 compared to others at $60-$80 pp. However, in the case of Mother's day you get what you pay for.
