My wife and I have been wanting to try Trelio for years but never got around to it because it's a tiny restaurant that we never think of when deciding on dinner. We finally remembered, and it is now one of our favorite restaurants in the area. It's a small place with no more than 15 tables in the restaurant. Great ambiance, attentive servers and the food is outstanding..!! The menu changes everyday which allows you to try new dishes and never know what to expect. Give this place a try and you will love it. Great place for a quiet dinner with your spouse or for dinner with a small group of friends.

Interesting, very small, quaint, located downtown old Clovis. Big wine menu, small dinner menu. Sides included so the price is very good for the quality. The Salmon was cooked excellent and the Mac N Cheese was outstanding. If you like small plate specialty dinners, this is for you. If you are looking for that big steak, go to a steak house. Overall a great experience with the wife on date night.

The filet of sole was quite good - not excellent. The steak had good flavor, but not nearly as tender as filet mignon. It was sliced and one of the pieces had gristle. It was cooked rare just like it was ordered. The bread pudding for desert was wonderful.
Servers were very cheerful and attentive.

Been to Trelio several times over the past few years... excellent food with great wine pairings. On the list of the entrees that stand out are the espresso roast duck and the french onion soup!

Our experience at Trelio was the best we have had in the Fresno/Clovis area in awhile. Our steaks were cooked to perfection with wonderful flavor. There is a great variety of good wine to choose from, service was great. Dessert was also perfect, if you go, try the blueberry bread pudding, it was the perfect ending to our meal. We will definitely return!

I heard a lot about this place and finally got to try it out. Emily was our host and server...she is awesome. Great wine recommendations at a solid price. Started with crab cakes. Kind of small for an appetizer but tasty. My guest ordered the veal meatloaf, the flat iron steak and I had the lamb. We all shared and compared. The meatloaf was good, but wasn't "oh wow", I don't know how it could have been made better but it was missing a little something (in my opinion) My guest loved the meatloaf. Maybe I am more traditional. The flat iron steak was very tasty and was the nights winner. My lamb was not medium and was just average although the portion was plenty. The chef came out to say "hello", which is always a nice touch. Will come back.

this was my third time visiting Trelios.their food always looks and tastes just like the stuff you see on Iron Chef.they have a very small menu. But everything on it is very good.if you done here be prepared to choose from about 6 to 7 dinners that are quite different what you'd find in any other only complaint is that I ordered a class of wine and got about an ounce of wine.I'm sure that's probably what it is customary in an upscale restaurant.but I couldn't help to Feel a little jipped.

The Valentine's menu and food not nearly as good as the regular menu. Some of the wine pairings did not match food.

This is now the third time I have visited Trelio in the last 4years. The previous two times that we visited, the food was great. This last time we ordered the boar belly, and it was awfully dry. I understand that boar will not be as fatty as pork, however, it was like eating overcooked pot roast. Flavor was good, too dry though. Our fish entrees were moist and delightful. The wine list is great, and it is a great romantic restaurant. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable, however when we got our bill at the end of the night, they listed the bottle of wine on the receipt without charging us for it. But then they charged it on the card, without any word mentioned. Just thought they could have said something....

This restaurant was not anything like the reviews or the "restaurant write-up". This is not comfort food - this is gourmet fine dining food! We had a very picky eater with us at dinner and I was very worried she would not find anything to suit her pallet. However, we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Outstanding. The other contradiction to the write up vs the actual experience. This is an ala carte restaurant so price is not $ - it was $$ to $$. I understand the restaurant changed hands - and this might account for the changes, but someone should really update the listing on Open Table. Had I known this was 'fine dining' and $$ we would have chosen a different restaurant because of the size of our party. But it was outstanding!
