We found this place on our travels across Canada last year and loved it so much we went back to eat there again the following night. The food was incredible as was our waiter Jeremy - this was September 2015. We had a great time and were made to feel really special, even though we arrived the first night looking... More

Hubby found this on TripAdvisor and decided to take me for my birthday. The minute we walked in I as spellbound. Small intimate setting with incredible lighting and ambiance, topped with subtle staff that really know their stuff. We started with the scallops ND bruschectares, two of our favorites, and I've never had anything like them. The server was so... More

After reading the rave reviews here, my wife and I went to the Trough for dinner last night. We would rate it as average or less. We chose to share an appetizer, scallops in a sauce for $16. There were only 3 small scallops plus a slice of focacia. Rating : good but overpriced. For a main course I waffled... More

Our hosts at Ambleside Lodge had made a reservation for us at Trough as it is VERY popular, turning the nine or ten tables at least twice a night. The quirkily titled Laurel (starters) and Hardy (Mains) menu is thankfully short and portions, though large are smaller than many we were offered in western Canada. Our mains were duck breast...

Went to the restaurant with friends who raved about the place and perhaps our expectations were too high, Three of our group had steaks and they were acceptable but nothing outstanding. One asked for medium and it was quite overdone. The ribs were recommended and the small portion was quite 'pedestrian'. The restaurant is located downtown and we found it... More

My husband took me here for my birthday while we were honeymooning in Canmore. Booking via email was a breeze. We each had a glass of wine, then we each had the soup of the day (roasted cauliflower with truffle oil) which had a parmesan crisp on top which just really put it over the top, followed by our mains,...

We went with out of town friends mid week. As mentioned the menu is tight but there was one each of beef,poultry, fish, pork or veggie dish. My ribs were really tasty and presentation was great! There is a good wine list. Service was ok and when a large group came in service did drop off. Seating is small so... More

We were accommodated without a reservation. The ladies serving were top notch, polite, attentive to detail, and easy on the eyes. Food was fabulous in every way. Great chef. Easy recommendation.

I cannot state how delicious the food is here. The food and service were impeccable. If we had known how great it was going to be, we would have eaten there another night of our trip. Gluten Free Options available. I had gluten free Bruschetta, Duck Breast which melted in the mouth, and then Gelato with candied nuts which I... More

The food was excellent without exception. As the name suggests, signature dishes are pork based, however the menu includes other meats, fish, and vegetarian options. Choice is a little limited but undoubtedly contributes to the quality of the ingredients, preparation, cooking and presentation of the dishes. The restaurant is not large, has a pleasant ambience, friendly, knowledgable staff, and delivers... More
