Interesting menu, although limited. Great bar/wine list for wine geeks. Highly recommend the duck necks! Only limiting factor was reluctant wait staff.

Truly amazing wine list, especially for natural wine enthusiasts. Food and service --as always-- top notch. Delightful surprise: first-rate, well-curated list of digestifs.

Had a table of six, would not expand to seven due to space considerations even though it would have been easy to place one more at table. Very popular neighborhood place. Though unusual, the duck neck appetizer was unique and terrific. Salads were also very good. The roasted chicken was perfect and the rosti potato even better. Oxtail pasta dish was pedestrian, and relatively expensive considering other dishes. Service was very good and waitress was just the right amount of attentive while showing a terrific knowledge of different wines that were had by table. Get the chicken and the rosti!

We had a very nice dinner and the staff was terrific. The food was delicious and there was some innovative preparation of standard fare. We were on a time crunch since we had a curtain at 7:00, and the staff was very accommodating and stayed aware of our needs. Will certainly be back.

Solid as always
We continue to love this place! Just the right combination of great food, ambiance, service. It has become our default place to go when we don't want to be adventurous and want to rest assured that a delicious meal awaits us.

Very nice place to sit and eat a meal. Service is quick and friendly. Menu is well thought out with some outstanding choices. Fresh, local ingredients are used here. Smoked pork is excellent. Sorbet is just okay. We'll be back.

Dinner from 6:30 'till 8;30. Not crowded, but filled up nicely as time moved on. Certainly would return to sample other dishes and can vouch for the spinach gnochi and octopus salad. Good 'tini's too.

A gem in Chelsea
My favorite restaurant in New York. Excellent service, great food, reasonable prices. Quiet, comfortable atmosphere. What more could one want?
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is always great here! It's a must every time I visit NYC.

Pssssst, have I got a place
For you. Swiss- or Austrian-trained chef. Wide selection of not the usual wines.
Try the fish. Dorade en papillotte -- superb. Or soft shell crab now that the season is here.

Fresh & Tasty
The food was very fresh and very tasty. Perfect for a summer day. Nice crisp vegetables, great sweet scallops, chicken can easily be boring but not theirs. Will definitely go again.

I have eaten here for over
I have eaten here for over a year now and I have never been disappointed at lunch or dinner. You cannot go wrong with any salmon dish! Amazing. Crispy on the outside with a cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth salmon on the inside. I love their pate, the pork loin with au gratin potatoes and their cheese selections. The staff is friendly and attentive. During gorgeous weather months request seating in the garden patio. It is such a beautiful backdrop for dinner.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
the back yard is magic
and the food is by and large delicious, with a nice selection of wine and beer. It's a wonderful spot to be on a warm night, and its proximity to the High Line is another plus. Not sure it's interested in kid-friendly foods, but otherwise excellent.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly and Super convenient
Took Austrian friends there prior to them walking the High Line.
Complimentary sparkling water.
Good well-cooked food, reliable and tasty.
Pleasant ambiance - an asset to the neighborhood.

My wife and I really like this place (right accross the street from us). The brunches are great and the menu for dinner always has something interesting (especially in fall). Very fresh ingredients.
Nice staff, real neighborhood feeling, not very expensive.
Guaranteed a nice experience.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice patio, warm inside
good option for eating outside near the highline. feels like a stereotypical village eatery - comfortable like a casual restaurant but not really a foodie destination. outside area is small but nice with a great tree - doesn't feel transporting but also not inhaling exhaust on the sidewalk. food was overall good, with some very good. best: pork loin, branzino, cold tomato soup (not gazpacho). duck necks were overrated.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice drinks, nice food, smartly prepared. The sweetbread appetizer is outstanding, and we were impressed with the pork and gnocchi entrees. The outdoor garden was quiet and relaxing. The wait staff, while a bit slow, were very friendly.

Good food with a Swiss twist
This restaurant has excellent Swiss twists on what is otherwise a nice American restaurant. The food is very tasty, and the service very good. Our waiter knew everything on the menu well, and was able to recommend his favorites and help us discern what we would like. Bravo! I will definitely be back. The garden out back is nice if you can get a table out there and the weather cooperates.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
like an alpine chalet
especially delicious cheeses and charcuterie, all our entrees were absolutely enjoyable. I felt like I was just in from the mountains and enjoying a hearty respite

I had the steak which was very delicious. My son had the smoked pork which was so tender and had a great flavor. Loved the outside courtyard. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. I would go back.

There was four of us and we all enjoyed our food. Perfectly made smoked pork dish. Would certainly go back for more food here!

Best back yard in Chelsea
We love the food and the knowledgeable service is a big plus. The back yard is quiet, softly lit and delightful. It's usually easy to get a reservation.

The backyard is worth an extra star
We went to Trestle expecting very good food, but we were suprised by the chance to eat al fresco in a pleasant backyard on a beautiful evening. The baby octopus salad was good, but I found the dressing overpowered the sweet richness of the octopus. The smoked and roasted pork loin more than made up for it. Service was a little rough around the edges. For example, I brought a couple great bottles of wine, but it took more effort than it should have to get them opened. When one BYOs, the waiter should ask when you want them opened as well as about glasses, decanting, etc. As another example, I received the wrong dessert. And this was on a not very busy Sunday evening.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very comfortable vibe. The night we went, it was not very busy, and it was our waitress's first week on the job. She couldn't answer a few of our questions (e.g. where is the salmon from), but she found out the answers and very friendly. The food was quite good, and they have really good specialty cocktails.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were glad we tried it
This was our 1st time @ Trestle and we thought the food was great. Service was capable, prompt and friendly. We'd go again, but alas it's back to Arizona today!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really great, better each time
Just went for brunch. Food was fantastic and decor was really beautiful as well.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food; needed a different wait
The food here was great. I'd recommend it. However, our waiter was lacked any discernible skills. He was slow. Didn't check on us and took forever to get our drinks to us. I'd go again...if I knew that guy wouldn't be waiting on me.
10/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
The duck was great, my companion's salmon was great, and the service was extremely energetic and friendly.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the duck confit hash. To drink I had the mulled cider. We waited a little while for our table, but that was OK. We ended up being 5 instead of 6 and they were fine with that.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dont read this, private
Trestle is a small quiet, friendly brick lined homey restaurant near the HIghline which serves terrific food. The service is friendly and helpful and non-intrusive. Small comfortable touches abound--such as free home made sparkling water, hot mulled cider, specialty cocktails, and an often changing menu which is seasonal and has high quality across the board. The wind list is modest but well chosen and reasonable. Just the sort of place to have great non-fussy meal with good friends. They do not have trestles however.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
great Euro fusion type food
Everything from friendly attentive staff to food was wonderful. Nothing was super fattening. One could choose from a short but great list of main courses. Each dish was prepared with great care. A little gem.
