Hi Neighbor!

At Trestle, we remember a time, not too long ago, where people took pause to enjoy a meal in the presence of great company, giving it the reverence and respect deserved. We provide a dining experience served in courses, with the satisfaction and warmth found at a family gathering, creating the foundation to a proper meal.

Every day we feature a changing 3 course prix fixe menu with choices on each course for $42/person. We will have an optional additional pasta course for $12/person. Unfortunately, we do not offer ala-carte options.

We are able to accommodate vegetarian options nightly. We do our best to accommodate other allergies/restrictions based on the menu for that evening.

Due to our limited spacing, we can accommodate parties of 8 or less only.

    What a great experience dining at Trestle recently. I love the operating model having a pre-fixed menu making it easier to choose and dine. I did feel slightly rushed for a party of two. We definitely didn't spend the full 90 min there. Nonetheless the food was delicious and though some dishes were seemingly small, it was just the right amount overall with adding the pasta dish as an option. I was stuffed afterwards. Great wine selection as well. The ambience was really nice and though the place seems small, it's just the right space for an intimate experience.

    Made reservations to try Trestle based on glowing reviews and Bib Gourmand status. Kind of disappointing based on both. Good value and Bib Gourmand status is debatable. Arrived and not even a greeting from host who had his back to patrons waiting to be checked in at door as he was busy on the phone. I found this to be an oddity, again due to expectations set by reviews by others and Michelin. Host was terribly unfriendly, definitely did not give us a feeling of being a valued patron. Waiter did not introduce himself but rather asked if we had visited previously, gave us a breakdown of the way their prix fixe worked, and took our drink orders. Again, hardly making us feel welcome. $42 prix fixe with 3 courses and an optional pasta course for added $12. Hardly a value when the food arrived. Meager portions. Nothing really memorable even within 24hrs of dining! Perhaps our expectations were set too high. We did do our research on the Hi Neighbor group and their mantra of service was totally lacking. We certainly will not be revisiting and could not recommend this establishment to anyone looking for service let alone good food...sorely disappointed again in Trestle as well as Michelin.

    We went there to celebrate our anniversary, and we had a nice time. The food was great and the service was efficient and good. The only pity is because the restaurant is small, the seats were very close to each other and I can pretty much hear the conversation of the table next to us all the time which wasn’t ideal. Other than that everything else was good.

    Even though I had made a reservation way in advance and arrived early, we had to wait 15 minutes after my reservation started in the cold to be seated. The staff made no effort to rectify this or give us any compensation on our items. That being said, the food itself was just amazing. Would have been a great birthday celebration if not for the wait in cold weather. Another couple was also made to wait in the cold after us. So there is definitely work to be done with their reservation structure.

    We were a table of five. Successes were the pumpkin soup, the mushroom risotto and short rib pappardelle. Also good were the sole and duck. The orange cornmeal cake was light but average. Better was the dark chocolate mousse. Cocktails were good as was the service which was prompt and efficient.

    (Party of 2, couple). We were treated to the 3 course fixed price menu. All the flavours combined really well together, the cheese and crouton in the Cesar offering a bit of bite to balance the rest of the dish. The only drawback we could think of with the meals was the cabbage in the salad came as one gigantic chunk, rather than dispersed across the plate. Despite that, the entree and dessert were both delicious! I loved the dark chocolate pearls adorning the mousse. All meals were appropriately sized so we left feeling a good level of full. Service was outstanding all night, we were waited on when we needed, but the staff didn’t hover unnecessarily. If you’re looking for a fancier, date style night (or to celebrate an occasion) and willing to foot the extra cost compared to everyday dining - we would highly recommend Trestle!

    Cute intimate restaurant. We were there for the New Year's menu, $95/person + 20% gratuity. Food was very good, with the only major complaint being that the rib-eye was over cooked. The reservation on OpenTable indicated complementary champagne, which we never received looking back at it. The timing was perfect as we had another event to get to. All in all, worth a visit.

    I like the 3 courses for a fixed price. The food was special by taste & quality. The main course was small. You will never have a take out box here. I will go back again because of the great taste. Wine by the glass was sub-par for the price.

    Service was truly impeccable. The starter (Garnet Yam Salad) and the entrees (Roasted Salmon and Seared Bistro Steak) were really good and well presented, but both desserts (Coconut Butter Cake and Chocolate Doughnut Sundae) were a bit of a letdown. Woul still come here again. Note that there is a mandatory 20% tip (and a 6% SF Healthy Mandate healthcare).

    We had an early dinner at Trestle on Christmas Eve. It was fun, very festive and the food was good. The cost of the prix-fixe dinner is really an excellent value and much appreciated. The service was very good with a few minor exceptions that were understandable due to it being a full house. Overall, we really enjoyed our dining experience at Trestle.

    I thought the food was very good for the value. The different courses didn't feel very cohesive, it just felt like I was eating a bunch of different things rather than a well orchestrated meal where the dishes flowed from one to the next. That being said, the food was still tasty.

    Trestle never disappoints! There’s a good reason it has earned a valued Bib Gourmand award from the Michelin guide—the restaurant offers an exceptional experience at a price point that always astounds us. We love the constantly updated offerings for all 3 courses—my husband and I can always get exactly what we want. We’re not even dessert eaters but we managed to put away that course as well. The service is knowledgeable and friendly and the wine list concise and well edited. Make a reservation well in advance—this is a VERY popular spot!

    Loved the experience and ambiance. The seating is a little tight due to it being a small space, so it makes sense. My partner is vegetarian, and I’m vegan, and they were easily able to make accommodations which were truly delicious! Also, the employees were very nice.
