Great food and service. Unique menu. It's the best in the Bow Valley. Make sure to get a reservation. They are loaded all the time.

The server was great and meal very nice. One person enjoyed the tomato feta salad, while another felt there was not enough on the plate. Mussels were cooked perfect, but the lemon was a little overwhelming on some bites. Brushetta was very good. One person at our table loved the seafood coppiano, again the other felt that it was not... More

Tapas used to be my favorite restaurant in Canmore, but now it's the Trough. The food is absolutely delicious! It's so flavourful and interesting. I will for sure go back to try the mussels, which I heard were amazing! The sangria there is also delicious!

Our trip coincided with Canmore's Food and Wine Festival. A limited menu was presented with 3 courses for $44.00 for this specific event. We were informed of this when we made our reservation. From appetizer to dessert - all were DELICIOUS!!! although the dessert portions were quite small. Service was attentive and EXCELLENT! Would RETURN again!

We're very impressed with The Trough in every way. Each of their signature cocktails are absolutely excellent. Their unique take on a number of classic drinks produces a taste experience exceeding most every other place I've been. Their wine list is very thoughtfully and tastefully populated. There are numerous excellent choices that pair well with all their meals. The food... More

My wife and I made reservations for The Trough for Saturday April 28, and I have to say we absolutely loved it! It's upscale dining with a casual atmosphere. No shirt and tie expected. From the moment we entered this restaurant, we were greeted by friendly faces and made to feel very welcomed, and special. The mood lighting and the... More

Been here twice - first time was very good, but this second time was absolutely excellent. Trough is tiny and very 'intimate' - cozy would describe it, so reservations recommended. Menu is inventive - but even then you can't quite imagine what the actual dish will be like. Great surprises and twists. Food quality and presentation is outstanding - very... More

We booked a reservation at the Trough for our 34th wedding anniversary. After reading all of the reviews, and knowing our food likes and dislikes, we decided on here. It was a very cozy restaurant, just off the main street of Canmore. When we walked in we were greeted by Andre who was an amazing wait staff! The food, the... More
