Diner Reviews
  • "My family with very young children had an early Easter breakfast. Very accomadting staff , presentation and quality of food was worthy of a return visit. We were so early we did not have to deal with crowds. Prices are fair. "

  • "Brunch w/Austrian-Swiss twist and a staff that is patient w/Tweens. Perfect place for those who have out-of-town visitors w/kids. "

  • "Nice little place with backyard seating, but the food was just ok and the portions were small in relation to price. Came Saturday at around 2 for brunch. Not all that satisfying. "

  • "We stopped by for dinner on Tuesday evening, early. Everything was very good as it seems to always be when we dine there. The salmon is exceptionally good. A simple salad of butter lettuce with warm bacon and a light dressing, seared salmon with beurre blanc, mashed potato and brussel sprout leaves, a glass of wine and another wonderful meal was had. Highly recommended."

  • "Such a hidden NYC gem in the heart of west chelsea, the garden was just what we needed for brunch, The food and service were great as always. The garden is one of the best in the city."

  • "Have eaten here several times and always have had a good meal. The menu is creative without torturing the food. Save room for dessert too."

  • "The most striking thing I have to say about this place is how uncomfortable the seating is, especially if you have the bad luck of seating on the window seats. Having customers seat there indicates disrespect for diners. We needed to ask twice before they moved us from there. The service was slow and not very pleasant. Both of us ate waffles. I liked them but my companion did not as they were too reach for him (and he often orders waffles so he has a good base for comparison). I expected much more after reading the reviews others gave to the place. We will not come back"

  • "The food was very good as usual. But the service slowed down. Evern though there ere staff who weren't doing anything, our cava was not delivered until we asked and no one ever came to the table to ask how things were going. So we were always waving our hands. However, because 4 of us were seated in a 2 people table we asked that 2 appetizers wer brought to the table at a time (we ordered 4), that was accommodated. Also there was a table of 4 that was availalbe. I thought about asking to switch. Only a couple showed up and that table remained open. We could have sat at a table of 4 and the couple could have sat at the table for 2. Would have beem much more comfortable. But will go back for the food. In the past service was much better."

  • "We can't wait to come back again to try more brunch items.Exactly what our friends from Brazil were looking for during their trip to Bill de Blasio's Island. Everything was delicious! Finally got a chance to visit this place that all our New Yorkers friends talk about and loved it. No complaints, can't wait to go back!"

  • "I wanted to eat lunch at a restaurant near my workplace. I had already tried the Red Cat (which is across the stress) and wanted something tasty. The Trestle on Tenth did not disappoint. It is a cute, little spot on the corner of 24th st. I had the crab cake sandwich with a side of the paprika fries. The crab cake had a little bit too much salt and it did not stay on the brioche bun, but other than these slight criticisms, it was pretty good. The fries with the mustard mayo was great. I loved the sparkling water. A lot of their other dishes had mushrooms (which I don't like) and my guest had the trout. She seemed to like it since it was gone. The food was filling and not terribly expensive at all (considering they don't have $ on website)"

  • "I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friend's home. We were a party of three, and each of us liked our dishes. From appetizers and wine through dessert and coffee, each was as good as the next! Menu changes were cheerfully accommodated. (I had the rosti "side" as an appetizer, so I then requested sauteed spinach instead of potato with my roasted pork.) Service was well-timed and friendly. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "With restaurants opening left and right I was happy to return to Trestle on Tenth. It was a terribly snowy day and I was going to be in the area and knew that I wouldn't want to walk very far. I am happy to report that Trestle on Tenth is just as good if not better than the last time I dined there (about 5 years ago)"

  • "If you are looking for a delicious meal, relaxed atmosphere and friendly, attentive staff, you will find it all at Trestle. Start with an amazing appetizer, the cheese board is our favorite. The striped bass with roasted cauliflower was absolutely delicious. Always save room for dessert. Some of our favorites include the flourless chocolate cake, peanut parfait and always try the coconut cake. Enjoy!!!"

  • "Finding a restaurant in New York that both serves appropriate portions for a man my size, and delivers a range of dishes that are beautifully executed is a challenge. Trestle on Tenth did this, on all levels. The oysters were ocean fresh and well selected, the rigatoni appetizer with smooth ricotta, sauce proportioned perfectly, firm and flavorful broccoli rob, was ample...entree sized for most restaurants. The Dorade was perfectly done, crisp skin, poached flesh, an accompanied by a range of enhancements (perfectly wilted chard, firm sauteed oyster mushrooms, smooth and rich polenta). Perfect. The duck was flaky skinned, well-sized, rich, and the pairing with the the acidity of huckleberries was brilliant."

  • "This is a restaurant I go to have a good meal with others and alone and they are great for Breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. Excellent small wine and beer selection and in addition to entrees and desserts (which are delicious - pork and duck variations are personal favorites), I love their cheese and meat selection. My favorite are their Tete-a-moir (wonderful presentation, chicken pate (it will bring back memories for some and is served in a small mason hart). A stand-by for me, friends in town, clients and guests from out of town."

  • "Normally the service here is exceptional. But on this visit it was incredibly lackluster. I will say the food was great - we all had a fish dish - the dorade, the bass, and the cod. All were perfectly prepared. And there was a 1999 Sauveniere that drank like a dream. But it seemed we couldn't get our waiter's attention for love nor money. The only thing he was concerned about was serving the wine. Didn't seem interested in taking our food orders or clearing the plates, or bringing the check. And the place was not crowded when we arrived at 8p and just kept getting emptier as the night wore on."

  • "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."

  • "Charmant resto pour un souper entre amis ou avec son amoureux. Bon service offert dans notre langue! Excellent repas. Simple mais délicieux. Pas besoin de nous vêtir comme pour aller dans un gala. Il est ensuite possible de marcher sur le high line pour faciliter la digestion. Je vous le recomande sans hésitation."

  • "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."

  • "A regular here Normally good food and good service. Maybe he was new, maybe he was having a bad day...guess what we don't care. Grumpy slow disinterested doesn't make for a great meal or great reason to come back."

  • "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."

  • "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."
