Great food and service with a rooftop patio which is really nice in good weather.
Duck polenta burrata pesto were all very well made
Birthday celebration for a dear friend and brother. Everyone had a good time. The food was delicious.
The people were very nice. Would definitely go again.
Great for larger groups.
This restaurant is not a good choice for a person with allergies. When informed of the dairy allergy of one of our group, the waiter said that one item would be OK because "it just has a little cream" and another item would be OK because "it just has a little butter." He seemed surprised when we pointed out that both cream and butter are not safe for someone with a dairy allergy.
When we asked if another item could be modified to avoid allergens, the waiter said that it would depend on whether the chef had enough time. There was only one other occupied table when we were ordering, so I can't understand why this was a challenge.
Bread excellent, good wine choices, pastas were a bit “leathery” as if nuked a little too long (not al dente), pesto sauce very good, but “Susan‘s downfall ravioli” sauce not as good as at Café pro bono . Very good Caesar salad. Very good crème brûlée. Chairs are very hard. Good service.
Have been going to the Trellis for many years. The food continues to be excellent, with a menu providing many different choices. Wait staff is always pleasant and attentive.
Our family had a wonderful Mother’s Day dinner in the lovely upstairs outside patio. It was warm and pleasant even at 6 pm and the service for our large group of kids & adults was very attentive. The food was terrific! I highly recommend Trellis.
Food was delicious and nicely presented. Service was excellent; waiters very attentive.
Great food and service. Convenient location in Menlo Park. We'll go back soon.
Delicious food and drinks, and excellent service as usual.
Very nice smaller Italian restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Was not busy when we went so noise level was perfect. Wish they had beef ravioli as that was what I wanted. Food was tasty but a little high priced.
The food was delicious, and the ambience was good. When we went there were not too many tables so it's very quiet. The sea bass was cooked to perfection. Restaurant overall had a very relaxing environment.
Very friendly staff. Food was excellent and well worth the price.
Great service, good Italian food (pasta was actually al dente as it should be), but the prices are on the steep side for what are basic pasta dishes. Awesome chocolate mousse and creme caramel for dessert. Back end on the restaurant smells damp and old, so if you enter that way, it's not a great first impression.
I think if I brought my very Italian grandmother here, she would have enjoyed herself too. Delicious!
Large party enjoyed the experience thoroughly! Food was good, and service was attentive and sincere.
Typical mediocre Italian restaurant. Big portions of mediocre food. Way overpriced. Service was terrible. Our server forgot about us in the back.
Great food, super attentive and friendly waiters
I had rack of lamb, my friend had the scallops. She adored her meal. Mine was good but not like her scallops. Their fresh steamed vegetables are delicious.
Trellis has consistently been outstanding! The wait service is perfect- not rushed, but not drawn out. The food selection is excellent and innovative. The duck I had was prepared to perfection, and my friend’s prawns and scallops were delicious. I made a reservation, although it was not needed for a Wednesday evening. I would recommend a reservation on the weekend. I will definitely return to Trellis to try other entrees.
We were a group of eight, with two hearing impaired people - so having a quiet place was important. The restaurant seated us in the back room, at a very nice intimate (for 8) people. The food was excellent, the service was good without being hovering, and we all had a great time. We'll go back again and again!
Trellis always has very good Italian cuisine..
Very fresh pasta's and meats... The fish and lamb shanks are excellent... great find...
Great time. Yummy food, good service.
Great service and food. We had 16 for NYE and they treated us like royalty.
Excellent experience. Friendly staff, great food, excellent service.
One of the best in the mid Peninsula. Don't miss Susan's Downfall, wonderful combination of gorgonzola and almonds with ravioli. The risotto is fabulous. Great service for our large party.
Christmas Eve, a wonderful evening. Food was phenomenal and wait staff so kind. Love this place, our family tradition for SO many years!!
Our meal was wonderful. There were six of us and two of the people Where in Walkers. The staff was very accommodating, and everyone was very helpful. We would definitely go back.
Great neighborhood gem!
One of the better restaurants serving good Italian food in Menlo Park
Trellis never disappoints. I have returned several times with people who had not previously dined there and each of them is now a Trellis fan. The food and the service is always wonderful.
Food was good...would give it another 1/2 star if possible. Good value as well...was seated right away and service was very good.
True and meaningful concern for guests of all ages, with excellent food in a quiet ambience.
We appeared to be the only customers when we arrived. As such, service was immediate and attentive. Eventually other tables were filled and everyone in the dining room seemed to be enjoying their meals. The food was served in nice presentations (my mom’s salad resembled a big flower) and was delicious. The Fettuccine Carbonara was delicious, I might have to order that dish the next time! Overall, it was an enjoyable dinner.
Wonderful lunch last Monday to celebrate an 83 years young birthday! Great food, friends and a wonderful tour of the of the outdoor dining area, complete with a hand full of grapes plucked from the Trellis.
Yes Kurt, I will be back before you know it with the hubby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Trellis consistently delivers on high quality food and service. Front dining area and when good weather, upstairs rooftop tables are very nice, other tables lack the ambience that should accompany such great food. We had table of 8, each ordering different entrees and all offered outstanding reviews of their meals. Caesar salad at Trellis remains the high bar with which my wife and I compare every other Caesar we eat- and none have rivaled the Trellis Caesar. The Trellis Carpaccio is also a consistently delectable way to start a fine dining experience.
Overall one of my favorite restaurants on the Peninsula.
Our waiter had to be reminded that we ordered wine after the main course had been served. And the chef special risotto was rather dry and tasteless - very disappointing when it’s the most expensive item on the menu. I’d stick to the basics if if we make a return visit as the food is usually much better.
Delicious dinner/good service!
Another GREAT experience. Food is always delicious and the service is very warm and inviting. Everyone is always so friendly and accommodating. We LOVE Trellis, and definitely will be back again! Thanks
