You'll find us tucked in between two buildings - The King's English Bookshop on the North and Mazza Cafe on the South - down a little sidewalk bordered with bushes. You'll see our rustic sign peeking out from under the ivy that surrounds the entrance to the patio. In the warmer months we have our hostess stand at the end of the sidewalk by our patio and in the colder months we have our hostess stand inside the little building, just off the patio. Our entire space is small, off-the-beaten path, and a bit hard to find, but we sure love it. The building holds our cozy dining room with shades of warm gray and original pane glass windows along one wall, and the patio is a tiny oasis of green plants and ivy in the warmer months. Don't be shy, just walk up and say hello!

Seating request wasn’t changed from 2 to 4 so we had to wait for a table to clear. Which was okay with us. The manager was courteous and very attentive the whole time. Nice place. Cozy

My first time there and it was for Valentine's Day. Cute little place, great for dates. I do think though it would nice if there was more lighting on the path outside to the dinning room. The food was good, although my main entree pasta did taste undone. The meals and wine were served too quick for a set menu. I felt the ambiance and the nice music didn't match the people who worked there, perhaps it was just the romantic vibe but the service didn't match that delicate vibe. They ran out of the appetizer on the set menu and they offered another option, but it was a bummer since I was looking forward to the original appetizer. I would like to go back to try the food on a regular day.

I loved our romantic Valentine dinner at Trestle Tavern. As always, the service was personable and attentive. I got the wine pairing and loved my three drinks, each one especially suited for the course. The food was absolutely delicious and the noise level was so low, the romantic, jazz music so delightfully perfect and the staff so sweet and attentive that the entire experience was an experience of ease and contentment coupled with delicious food and wine.

I love Trestle Tavern! The menu selection is great and everything I’ve ordered is always very fresh! I appreciate the local sourcing and seasonal menu. It’s a cute, little restaurant tucked behind an equally adorable and locally owned bookshop.

What a pleasant find! Tucked away with a cozy fireplace and quaint atmosphere. The smoked trout cakes were perfection. The burgers were delicious. Although a comment was made that they could be improved by being on a toasted bun instead if the sourdough thick sliced toast. Our server was great.

The the host who greeted us was cordial and prompt. We made a reservation and were seated right on time. Our waiter was disinterested and unfriendly, but our entire order was entered correctly. The food was excellent and priced fairly. The ambiance was very cozy and romantic. We will be going back, hopefully the waiter is better next time, other than that it was a fantastic dining experience.

It’s a cute spot. But when it fills up its loud because it’s quite small. The chairs are pretty uncomfortable, some of the seating is half booths. I had the burger and it was cooked medium but pretty dry. The fries are the kind I love, skin on, but I got a lot of small hard pieces from the bottom of the batch. My husband had fish and chips and it was a lot of batter and not a lot of fish. Not sure I would make it a point to go back here

Enjoyed a week night dinner at Trestle--glad we had reservations (6:30) because the place was full. Great service, enjoyable food (our table got Brussels sprouts and cauliflower appetizers, fish and chips, and the chopped chicken salad). Loved the fries.

The food is always good at Trestle. A little noisy this evening but still a good dinner. The cheese sauce for the pretzel appetizer is good enough to drink.

New Yrs Eve dinner date. Largely satisfied. Just felt rushed like the main goal of the service was table turnover. I understand the need to manage that on a busy night with a prix fixe menu, but one shouldn’t have to ask for coffee or other beverage while the desserts are slapped down on the table.

It was a our first time patronizing Trestle Tavern. The food was very good with the Chef allowing each individual to season their dish personally. I recommend the Beef Stew. I give 5 stars to the Outstanding people who served us!!!!

delicious food, didn't arrive immediately but was just right amount of time between courses, only thing I don't like is the place is small and thus you feel on-top of other guests and our server had to enter orders, etc. right next to us. Despite the drawbacks of the size, it still was not very loud and felt fairly comfortable.

We love this place, it has such a cool ambiance, but the noise level for any kind of conversation was too loud. The food is awesome, and it's great for a couple, but not if you're trying to have a business dinner.

We had a reservation for 6:00 PM and found the charming, shaded patio quite open at that time. By the time we left there were several others at tables, yet the atmosphere remained peaceful and relaxing throughout our dining experience. Our hostess was great and our waitperson was excellent. His name is Quentin; he was very attentive and extremely personable. When asked for dinner recommendations he provided us with great information. We will definitely return and request to have Quentin's service!

We sat outside which provided great ambiance. My husband’s beer took a lot longer than normal because they said they had to change out the barrel. When the beer finally arrived, it was luke warm. The food and service was good.

We live in the neighborhood and walk past Trestle Tavern several times a week but had never tried it. We had friends in town who used to live in the neighborhood so we thought we’d give it a try. I had the pulled pork sandwich with a pineapple slice and it’s probably the best pulled pork I’ve ever had. Fries were outstanding. Service was great. We ate outside so there were flies but that’s something I should have thought about. It wasn’t too bad.

Everyone one loved their selection.
Will definitely return.

Unfortunately we had to move inside with our party of 4 as it was so noisy outside we couldn't hear ourselves speak! Inside we waited almost an hour to be served.

Food is quite good, but service was not. Too busy and too few wait staff or cooks, not sure which.

Was going to suggest it for our group of 7, but, unfortunately will now probably not.
