We brought some friends visiting from Calgary to the Trough with us for dinner. From the moment we entered the door we enjoyed our entire experience. Service was friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. Especially the southern spicy ribs. Our server made us feel welcome and well looked after. Wine prices were affordable.

The Trough is consistently excellent on all fronts. We've eaten in restaurants around the world, and lived in London and Toronto, where we've been spoiled for choice for fine restaurants. The Trough would stand out anywhere. Yes, it can be expensive but the ingredients are first class, the service top notch, so to me that makes it good value rather... More

Food was good, restaurant is nice and romantic. I just wasn't impressed. I did go in with expectations to be impressed however and nothing really caught my eye. Nice food, tasted good just don't have anything to write home about considering the hype around this place.

I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner on a Thursday evening. It was both of our first times at the restaurant. We don't get out to Canmore enough sadly, but will definitely make a better effort just to eat here again! I would definitely recommend making a reservation before coming here, especially on the weekends. The Trough has... More

Went to Canmore on long weekend with my wife. Kids were left at home and I am not even sorry... Place is superb: cozy and spacious, no loud music. Food is simply amazing: we ordered pork and pork beet salad and another appetizer. I simply applaud to the chef. After visiting this place I would just recommend to ignore negative... More

We went for supper on Thursday night and our meal was spectacular. The service was great! If you've never eaten here before you should definitely try it out!

We have heard many good reviews about the Trough but have never had the opportunity to dine there until recently. We had a late reservation and were seated at a nice table. This restaurant probably has 12- 14 tables and turns them at least twice so it seems that reservations are somewhat staggered. Ambience is lovely -- no loud music... More

This is not only the best restaurant in Canmore, but we had what was probably the best meal of our 5 week Canadian holiday here. The chef has a very sophisticated understanding of how spices can enhance, without overpowering, a dish. Both the seafood and meat were outstanding. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment as it is a small... More

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
