Had a wonderful time at Trellis.
Had a wonderful time at Trellis. Our waiter was a bit scattered but made up for it by not charging us for the dessert he forgot. The polenta appetizer was to die for. The flavor so good and and the polenta so creamy. The prices were very reasonable including the wine list. So enjoyed my veal scallopini with lemon/caper sauce. All in all a very nice dining experience. Will return.

Solid but No Stunner
Good place for date night when you have a sitter for the kids and need to be on call in case of emergencies. No hip/hot vibe, but reliable and decent if you're looking for some solid Italian food in an intimate yet easy setting.

The food was excellent, but
The food was excellent, but thought that the portions were just a bit skimpy. Had the cannelloni with apple pie ala mode for dessert - excellent and the dessert portion was adequate.

this was the first visit to
this was the first visit to The Trellis; I dined alone, early in the evening; it was very quiet with only two other single diners. the service was very attentive without hovering; and the food was nicely presented and delicious. having dietary restrictions, the server was very helpful with offering different options.
there is an outdoor rooftop dining area but I did not check it out.
I will definitely return.

My husband and I love the Trellis. In several visits, just us or with friends, every entree has been wonderful. And since we first tried the Tiger Prawn appetizer, we always get it. Mind you, my husband isn't that fond of prawns! We like sitting on the upstairs terrace the best. When the grapes are ripe, the owner comes around and offers tastes.

Trellis in Menlo Park
We absolutely LOVE Trellis in Menlo Park. The Suzanne's downfall is a MUST have! The waitstaff are friendly and happy to oblige. Kurt, the owner is wonderful and very accommodating, We go there quite frequently and love the al fresca dining on the roof. We have had numerous family dinners there and will do so again! There is a private room upstairs and ther is no extra charge for it's use. We absolutely love this gem of a restaurant!

terrific italian spot
had Mothers day brunch Sunday. food was great, service excellent, staff very friendly. we ate inside, but they have a wonderful rooftop patio for outdoor dining also. in a town full of wonderful little restaurants, Trellis is right up there among the best

Go with the patio, or get out
This was the second time I've eaten at Trellis. The first time we sat inside, and while it's nice, it wasn't anything special. Plus I was a little disappointed in their bread (foccacia-like, rather than the pugliese-type bread I prefer at Italian joints) and olive oil (there is fuzzy black crud in the bottom of their bottles). The food that first time was okay, but nothing remarkable. On the whole I didn't care for it that much.
But this second visit was totally different. It was a warm afternoon and the patio felt really nice and breezy. The olive oil and bread were still meh but I liked my entree (pork medallions and grilled risotto) much more. I would say go for the entrees over the pastas.

Great ambiance and delicious food!
Trellis has a romantic atmosphere - dimmed lighting, quiet corners to actually hear everyone at your table. Food and service were great. Loved the mushroom risotto!

As always, a great meal
We have been here several times and always enjoy both the atmosphere and the food. This was the first time we had something other than a pasta dish. We ordered the duck and the beef bourguignon, both delicious. The carpaccio appetizer was also excellent. Be sure to enjoy sitting in the upstairs, outdoor patio.

Another favorite restaurant,
Another favorite restaurant, which is consistently delicious! The food has never failed us, nor has the service. Some standout pasta dishes would be Susan's Downfall (cheese & herb raviolis w/ gorgonzola cheese & toasted almond sauce), the Fettuccine Carbonara (pancetta, peas & cream sauce), or the Cannelloni (two savory crepes filled w/ ground roasted veal, spinach & provolone cheese), yet the Rigatoni and Spaghetti are also delicious! I have also had the Grilled Boneless Chicken Breast (lemon-shallot sauce, mixed vegetables & grilled polenta) and the Beef Bourguignon, both of which are also winners. I haven't tried the fish, but my mother has, and has really enjoyed. And save some room for dessert! I highly recommend!

We met friends here as a midway point, first visit for all. We were greeted and everyone was friendly and very pleasant. We each had a different entree and all were pleasantly satisfied. Next time we would like to dine upstairs on the terrace.

This was my 4th time dining at Trellis and the experience continues to be great. The food and service was just outstanding. I truly enjoyed the roof-top dining.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who loves food and a great dining atmosphere.

We were a party of 4, we each had a different entree. We visited two weeks ago and enjoyed our meal so much we returned to try more if the entrees. Note, if you want a dish with a meatball you have to advise two days prior to your visit. The owner will give you a detailed reason for this request.

yummy fresh food
Loved the food and the service was really good and fast
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service in this restaurant was 5 stars. The balance between checking-in when needed and then not interrupting during our animated conversation was perfect. The food was very good for the pricing. We especially enjoyed the salad courses, the bread and our desserts.

Another wonderful meal at Trellis! We always have a great meal here. The atmosphere is very inviting and relaxing, the food is delicious, and the service is very helpful. I will often ask for recommendations, and have yet to be disappointed. If you're looking for a nice meal, and still be able to carry on a conversation, Trellis is the place to go! Highly recommend!

Our group of 8 appreciated that we were able to receive separate checks, and we enjoyed the quiet setting in the back of the restaurant so we could talk without disturbing anyone or having trouble hearing each other.

Trellis is a treasure that
Trellis is a treasure that hasn't been discovered. We eat there many times of year, most often for lunch but occasionally for dinner. The food is always delicious. The owner/host gracious and the wait staff competent, though not yet up to the standard of the two waiters who retired.
No one to whom we've ever recommended Trellis has been disappointed.
