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.

This is one of my favorite spots...food choices are ordinary with a gourmet twist & beautiful presentation..something to speak to... More

The caramelized banana French toast has just the right blend of crunch and sweetness. Paired with a side of bacon, and it's breakfast perfection! And I can't say enough about the friendly waitstaff. Definitely a place I'd highly recommend.

Good Day Irishbluetraveller, We are sorry that your experience was less than stellar. As you can tell by the other reviews here, your experience is not the norm. The Sirloin Steak that comes with the steak and scallops is a 6 oz steak. It is a part of the bigger meal. We would never suggest anyone to buy scallops at... More

The food was good. I think the waiter was a greenhorn that had little or no experience with sit down dining.

We found it very convenient to have such a nice restaurant attached to our hotel (Best Western Plus Dartmouth Hotel and Suites). The dinner menu was appropriately priced and featured a good selection of entrees.

After a long, meandering drive down the eastern shore, we weren't in the mood to go out, so ate in the restaurant at the Best Western Dartmouth. While nothing like the freshness you can get at NS family restaurants, Trendz provided a decent meal with a lovely presentation.
