I have been eating at Trendz for years! I love all of their food but their sandwiches and salads are the best! Great staff and atmosphere!

Have eaten here several times. Great restaurant, Chef aims to please, lots of food choices, drinks. A great place to enjoy a special occasion with family and friends alike. Two areas of eating, easy to find with lots of parking in Burnside.

This is in the best western that I stayed at and spent a few dinners at. The staff is excellent and friendly. Meals are well prepared and the quality of food is too notch. Now knowing about this gem even if I don't stay at the hotel, trends will be always considered for place to eat. Highly recommended

We went here for Burger Week, ordered their feature burger with sides (fries and sweet potato fries). Positives: service was friendly. Negatives: fries were undercooked and somehow crunchy (raw) and soggy at the same time, sweet potato fries were burnt, burgers were very disappointing. We got the deluxe burger; burger was over cooked, duck was under-seasoned and didn't seem to... More

Good Day Alana, Thank you for taking the time to review Burger Week at Trendz. We are sorry that your experience was not stellar. While the majority of our comments are very positive, this was our first burger week and we have learned a lot from it. As you can see by other posters, this is not the norm here... More

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...

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.
