I will not hesitate to say that Trek Restaurant is the best restaurant I have been to since coming to Yellowknife. It's not just the location and the food - but it's the service as well!
The restaurant is very simple and modern, and certainly very cute. The colours, music, and decor in the restaurant make for a very pleasant and happy atmosphere.
I brought my family to the restaurant for the first time to celebrate my dad's birthday. It was the best decision I ever made! The very kind server seated us to our reserved table immediately. He was a very sweet and polite boy which certainly goes to show the excellent customer service this restaurant has.
When the time came to order food, we were surprised to find that the food was the best we have had in ages. If you're looking for a delicious home cooked meal - away from home - this is the place to be! Everyone at the table agreed that the food was delicious. All of our meals were served hot with the freshest ingredients. Not only that, but the mashed potatoes were to die for - creamy, soft and with chunks on the inside. In addition, they had a variety of drinks to offer that tasted sweet and refreshing. The kids loved the different options they could choose from as well!
The entire time, the servers were always there to check on us. They ensured that our water glasses were filled, our empty plates were taken away, and most importantly, that we were enjoying our meal. It is always nice to be acknowledged, and Trek certainly made us feel welcome and at home.
Here is the BEST part ... We were planning on ordering dessert after our meals, and just as we were about to do so, the restaurant owner and our server surprised us with a HUGE chocolate cake for my dad's birthday. The restaurant went above and beyond by baking a surprise cake for the special occasion. I was unaware of their plans to bake a cake, so I was certainly surprised as well. It was such a sweet, thoughtful, surprise and this certainly was the icing on top of the cake of our experience at Trek. My dad couldn't stop grinning from ear to ear. Not only that, but the cake was delicious - it was a moist, chocolate cake with fruit filling on the inside, topped with chocolate icing and baked apples. It was sweet, light, delicious and baked to perfection!
We left the restaurant with our bellies happy and full. Certainly worth what we paid for.
Trek, thank you for making our experience such a great one, and a special thanks for making my dad's birthday even more special with that surprise cake. We will definitely be coming back - this is the best restaurant in Yellowknife for sure!
