Just returned from the Trough. I think that was the best meal I have had all year. Excellent service - you can tell it is owner operated as he is ensuring your experience is a positive one. You wont be disappointed! We are headed back tomorrow. Reservation recommended.

A fabulous restaurant. Really trendy, but not too busy. The food is top quality and the waiting staff are attentive, polite but not too on your face. The menu was not too large which was great - we had the steak which was the best we had in Canada

The title says it. We enjoyed fine food in a humble environment (the porch). The service was good but not what one would expect from a restaurant capable of producing such fine cuisine, and certainly not one charging the prices they do.

Right from the moment you step in you are made to feel so welcome by The owner, Richard or one of his staff. He also has his mom (who I swear does not look old enough to be his mother) and sister working there. They all work so well together to provide a great experience. If he knows your name, Richard makes a point of remembering it, which makes you feel like you are special.

We enjoy the comfortable feeling there and have been there for romantic special occasion dinners or brought friends with us for a fun evening. We really appreciate the little niceties of the Amuse Bouche, a sample of something the chef has prepared, a mouthful served on a bent spoon and the sorbet, palate cleanser between courses. Whenever we are at a loss of which wine to choose, the servers or Richard have made suggestions which have always been perfect for our food choices and our palates.

All in all, we highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. We think the fact that it is tucked away on 9th Street makes it feel all the more non-commercialized and cozy.

The food here is just ok, the service is slow and truly is not that spectaculor at all. Not worth the money.
