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.

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 restaurant.my 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.

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!

We've dined here before, we are always excited to see what local, seasonal specialties are offered. They didn't disappoint this time, offering in addition to their usual outstanding beef, lamb and fish choices, frog legs and oxtails. Many reasonably priced wines on their extensive wine list. I'd definitely recommend Trelio.

Another outstanding meal with perfect service. This place just warms my heart all the way around. They treat you like part of the family but celebrate you in a first-class way as a valued customer. I would trust my most important occasions to this restaurant. I have spent all my birthdays in recent history at this restaurant. Amazing wines selected my former somm and current co-owner, Chris. Fit for foodies and wine snobs, amongst whom I include myself.

Our original server switched to someone else and things went downhill. The person who took over our table was a male server, most likely the owner. He was VERY busy and hyper. My wine glass had a smudge on it and he insisted it was "polished" and proceeded to pour wine (a bottle we brought with us) into it. I asked him to stop and he was upset and took it away. After bringing a new glass I had asked what happened to the other. I wanted to offer it to him to taste. He became quite rude. I mentioned he seemed very anxious and that I was the customer. Although he agreed with both statements we did leave after our appetizer and salad. By the way, both were excellent. Food great - service and attitude terrible.

This was a unexpected treasure in Fresno. The wine list was extensive and the waiter very knowledgeable about the wines, loads of local choices.Good thing because,they have small beer choices and no liquor. There were 3 of us and we sampled different appetizers and meals. All were handmade and delicious. Loved the use of fresh local produce! The food looked as delicious as it tasted and the portions were generous. Additionally, the chef came out and spoke with us, which we always enjoy.

The rotating menu seems to have something for everyone from a vegetarian dish to beef, lamb, fish and chicken. It's a real foody type place, so don't expect to go in and get a 3000 cal meal like at the cheesecake factory or something, this is good food, made with good, fresh, local ingredients.
It's a very small place, with maybe only 15-20 tables or so, and you can expect the chef to come out and pay a visit, which is a nice touch.
They have a very extensive wine selection, as evidenced by their "Wine Spectator" magazine citation as one of the worlds best.
So if you are looking for real, good, fresh food and an adult eating atmosphere that is more high end, this is the place to go in Clovis.
