If you're a fan of salmon this is the place for you! Their salmon tasting is very good: potted salmon, a salmon wonton, smoked salmon, seared salmon with accompaniments of horseradish and beetroot and sourdough bread. Yum! Their chowder, however, was a little on the disappointing side: way too much cream and not enough seasoning. Good friendly service, clean bathrooms and a nice wine list - including a few local organic wines by the glass.

Had New Years Eve dinner at The Trading Rooms and it was superb!! Staff were friendly and very helpful. Cocktails and the wines were awesome. Our meal was excellent and such a generous portion, we couldn't fit in dessert which was such a disappointment. If you like salmon then the salmon tasting platter is a must. Highly recommend!!

We have always thought highly of the Trading Rooms, but their new menu and new enthusiasm has reached new gastronomic heights. The service was superb, but the dishes - one lamb and one ribeye steak were extraordinary and inventive. Bravo!
