We had such a Great Time at Trendz. Our Server was very friendly and the Menu offered up exactly what we wanted. Do try the Desserts, they made our meal. Enjoy!

Went to meet a few co-workers for a meal and was surprisingly impressed at the whole experience. Atmosphere was great, food was amazing, service was incredible (I don't think I've ever experienced better service at a restaurant, ever). Server was extremely knowledgeable about my gluten allergy and went above and beyond to ensure everything was good for me to eat.... More

First of all the good: - Very good service and a nice atmosphere. The mediocre: - The Calamari appetizer tastes like it's "fresh" from a Costco freezer bag. - The Caesar salad was reasonably tasty but had too much dressing. - The Nachos were standard pub fair although they did try to class it up with more authentic Mexican style...

Good Day NV-Guy, Thank you for taking the time to review our Trendz Lounge. I am so happy that you enjoyed the staff and the atmosphere. Please let me point out that this listing is not for the lounge but for the whole establishment. The reason why we are rated so high is that our reviewers have eaten off the... More

We went for the Christmas buffet and it was very good. I didn't want turkey but there was also ham and beef to chose from. There were a variety of salads and desserts. The location is right in the Burnside Industrial area and easy to get to Dartmouth Crossing.

I have been staying at the Best Western and eating at Trendz for a number of years now. I agee if I could give six stars this would be the restaurant to do it with. I have never stayed here that I couldn't get special menu items whether on the menu or not. The chef's team is truly exceptional and... More

The service was very very quick the food was amazing the server was extremely nice and the bathroom was cleaner then any public restroom I have ever visited. Unlike many which smelt of pee. This restaurant is one that tons of others that I have visited should take after

An excellent evening meal despite being surrounded by work Christmas parties. Attentive but not over-bearing service, good advice on portions and choices. Not the cheapest or arguably the best venue (being tucked into the Best Western hotel), but certainly good value.

Had lunch here with a group of workmates recently. This is a convenient location in a busy business park. The decor and service were quite nice. Lunch options were varied and interesting. I had a crispy chicken caesar sandwich which was flavourful and reasonably priced. Overall, a decent lunch spot.

This restaurant is located in the Best Western in Dartmouth so it likely gets overlooked but it shouldn't! We had a business dinner here and the food was very good, the atmosphere was nice and the service was great! I would certainly recommend it for business and pleasure alike! The seafood and steak are very good and the presentation was... More

Hi Kim, It is true that we are tucked away in the Burnside Business Park, but a lot of local folks still find us. Thank you for the great recommendation and we hope to see you again soon. Ron More

The chef here is amazing and the atmosphere is great. I have been a few times and I find the lunch hour service to be a little slow. It's tough to get in and out within 45mins which is important when popping out of the office.

Good Day SKMullins, Thank you for the great review. Our lunch service is guaranteed to get you in and out in 45 minutes, and we do this without an express menu. Express menus at other "big box" have them prepping food before ordering or they have "boil in the bag" items that can be completed quickly. We make everything from... More
