Trapeze is awesome
Great spot for small or large groups (they have a banquest room in the back)
Food is really good and staff is very friendly!

Desert was excellent...

A very good meal with close
A very good meal with close friends...this place is still somewhat undiscovered...the only minus...and it's a small minus, was the "bar scene" ...I guess there are Friday night "regulars" and during the first half of the evening it was loud but soon the bar crowd dissipated and it was easy to have convivial conversation...good choice for small groups...great kitchen with an ambitious and inventive menu...

Just the Best Food, Staff
Just the Best Food, Staff and Ambiance. We love Trapeze. Reservations are recommended as they are getting really, really popular.
One thing we really love is that the Owner searches and shops for organic specials that his chef really knows how to preapre. Game birds, rabbit, wild boar, Kobe Beef, etc.

The Best in Burlingame
Frequent this spot regularly. As such, feel treated like it is an extension of my home. Wonderful care and service and food, at quite reasonable prices. Everyone should try this place. I predict you will come back again and again.

The Best of the Best.
Lord knows I do not want to reveal this neighborhood secret to the masses, but with all the construction going on in Burlingame Ave, this is the best place to avoid all the traffic and enjoy a bit of sunshine. Great food, great atmosphere, great service, best bar in all of Burlingame Ave. I've been working in Burlingame since 1998, and this is still my #1 go-to for work events, for girls-night get-togethers, and for Weekend cocktail-salad-with-sun-on-my-face-afternoons. The owner personally selects all the meats he serves, the Sea Bass is unbelievable. There is something for everyone here - you will NOT be disappointed, and at some point, you will be happy that not everybody knows about this place.

My only disappointment was that my beloved dipping oil was changed. I suspect the locals enjoyed the change to the garlic infused oil, but I brought a person new to the restaurant and was talking up the other oil. Luckily everything else was great. I gave my a gift certificate to come back and she was quite pleased.

Better than expected
The skirt steak pannini and the Kobe burger are highly recommended!

A real gem sitting in Burlingame undiscovered...great food and quiet but efficient service... we've been there 8 or 9 times and have never had a bad experience nor a bad meal...

Fun place for alfresco dining
Fun place for alfresco dining. The Kobe burger and the wraps are great for lunch.

Everything we ate there was obviously made on site. The "vegetarian burger" made with polenta was terrific and their french fries were some of the best I have ever had.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. Service was very good until when we left, I said "thank you and goodbye" but the waiters did not say anything.

Living Room of my friend
I felt like I was visiting an old friend even though I have only been to this restaurant twice. Will return.

Love The Steak Wrap
Can't be the steak wrap. Delicious and nice portion. Been here a numerous time now....very consistent.

My favorite part of their menu is their homemade pastas. I think we have tried all of them now, and my favorite is their veggie ravioli! Not a good romantic spot, due to their noise level, but great for groups!

A great meal at Trapeze!
My wife and I took our son and fiance out to dinner at Trapeze last Saturay. It's a small, neighborhood restaurant that has gone through several restaurant iterations in the past years. We had early reservations for 6:30. When we got there, there was a large party in the back of the restaurant, but they were probably the most civil and reserved group of about 15-20 people we could have had. The food was great, not overly seasoned but fresh and wholesome. The dinner salads are large enough to share with two people. I had the crab ravioli for my main course, and it was good without being heavy and overly rich. A pretty good place for dinner.

What a perfect little place! Not so small, but it feels intimate. Excellent in every way.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always good and the service is friendly and attentive.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here more a few times now and each time, I come away satisfied with service and quality of the food.

The Best Restaurant in Burlingame
Trapeze is hands down the best restaurant in Burlingame. We frequent Trapeze often. Their finesse with European cuisine is always subtle and delicious. The service is consistently great. Outdoor dining is often a great option, white table service with reasonable prices and portions. We highly recommend the wild mushroom tortellini. Parking and weather are always a breeze. We opt to travel to Burlingame more often than fighting the parking and wait in San Francisco. Excellent!

Have had a very fine dining experience multiple times.
Have also had 3 meeting events in the rear private dining room.
Very nice food quality, presentation, and wait staff.

Had a great lunch. (One pasta dish, one veggie wrap - both yummy). The service is what stands out. Fabulous waiters, friendly, knowledgable and a sense of humor!

Try the Hen
I made a reservation and requested a table near the window or in a corner, and even though the restaurant was relatively empty when we got there at 8, we we seated next to a loud group of people. Despite this, we had a great time. They're appetizers were small, but delicious, calamari was our go-to appetizer, much crispier than olive garden, I'll tell you that. But the best part of the meal was the Cornish Hen, it was DELICIOUS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Moist, well seasoned, and not at all what I was expecting, I was thinking that it would be a little gamey almost, but it was far from it, and that's saying a lot when our other dish was the lamb shank. The sauce for the lamb shank was mediocre, it was tender, but comparably worse than the hen.

Luv this place....lunch or dinner, always fresh, tasty, & original in a typical Italian resteurant from the city by the bay....

Great Social Graces DO Exist!
The manner in which you are treated in this restaurant is amazing. They truly cater to you. The table staff is beyond polite & knowledgeable. Their food is hot & served properly. It is SO tasty, you have trouble choosing what you want! They make you feel special here and satisfied enough to come back many times again! Their Skirt Steak & Frites are fantastic; the Kobe Burger to DIE for and the night we came recently, the Chilean Sea Bass was like BUTTER! They do not rush you out of your seat. It is not their goal to "turn the table" quickly, but to have you RETURN again! This truly is a gem in the neighborhood. We were turned onto it by friends in the area and we return as often as possible. Owner always comes to the table to say hello!

I ordered the seafood paella
I ordered the seafood paella at Trapeze. It was quite fresh and tasty, however, it tasted more like
a risotto than a paella! My wife ordered a burger, and she was not particularly thrilled with it.
My family ordered two desserts to share, the bread pudding and
a hazelnut-wafer/chocolate creme dish. The bread pudding was fairly good, the hazelnut/chocolate
dish was not at all notable. So their desserts could use some improvement. Like many Italian
restaurants in the area, this one would benefit from a more adventurous menu; it is tiring
to see the same dishes everywhere.

Going Away Party
We had a going away party at Trapeze. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. When it got a little warm inside, the front windows open on to the street and we had a nice breeze.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
we always enjoy TRAPEZE; it's like being greeted by family when we go there. Steve always has a smile and a kiss; all the staff treats us with gracious warmth. They are especially accomodating with special requests. It's our "go to" restaurant if we want to be assured of good food, great bar, comforable ambiance and wonderful service.
