Trapeze European Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was beautiful; decked out for V-day. The food was great. I wish I could say the same about the service. Our waiter was waiting on too many tables. The table next to us who got seated after us had their salads and wine before we even had water. The waiter kept apologizing to everyone. If not for the food, it would have been a bad experience.
Went here for lunch for the first time having been coming here for dinner for many years. The lunch menu was excellent - something for everyone at a business casual meeting. I had the Trapeze salad with grilled shrimp - the salad was mixed red and green lettuce, with small cherry tomatoes and halved kalamatas with feta cheese and a vinaigrette; everything was very fresh and the tomatoes were super sweet. The shrimp was superb - beautifully cooked, still warm on the plate, and the tails came off very easily. I liked that they were on the edge of the salad so they kept their warmth. Noise can sometimes be a problem here at night when the restaurant is full and the bar is busy, but it was not a problem for the lunch hour; the restaurant wasn't full when we arrived but got busier over the course of the meal, but it remained easy to hear each other. Service was excellent as it always is when we come for dinner - attentive but not hovering. I highly recommend this reliable restaurant.
THIS TIME WAS A TOTAL MISS.
We took friends there for their first visit for Sunday lunch thinking that the food and service would be good. We have patronized this restaurant for over 4 years.
We arrived and a waiter was prompt in asking us if we wanted anything to drink. Our friends arrived about 10 minutes later and it was another 10 minuted before a waiter came again after being beckoned. We we were the ONLY ones in the restaurant. There were 2 waiters standing at the back chatting.
The service was slow. The main course, veal saltimbocca arrived and it was a piece of dry breaded veal with a piece of fried tough prosciutto or thin ham on top...no sauce. Was the chef actually in the kitchen or were the sous chefs cooking? It was obvious that whoever was cooking had no idea how to prepare this dish.
It was a huge disappointment to our friends who will not return.
We had such an amazing meal at Trapeze on Christmas Eve. Our waiter was so attentive and told us all about each dish and how it was prepared. It was very kid-friendly and my son had a delicious pasta with bolognese sauce. We loved everything about this meal.
Just off a busy shop avenue, parking was difficult, but that's to be expected during the holiday season. The restaurant is on the small side, being narrow and deep, with a bar on the left wall in the front half, with a single row of tables that can seat 6 across from it, and all seating in the back half. We were seated across from the center of the bar, where the bar tender shook his drinks over ice with loud and prolonged relish; thankfully that was not too often and quiet conversation was otherwise possible.
The waiter was courteous and helpful, with water and bread refills being timely and unobtrusive. The food was excellent. I had seafood linguini, which was perfectly cooked with no fishy smell. The sauce was light and tasty. The other dishes were of similar quality and size, not being ridiculously small like at some elite eateries, or so huge as to confirm your suspicions about the source of obesity in America.
All in all, a very good experience.
Second time there and seemed to be a different chef. Seafood fettuccine was not in butter sauce as before but gooped up with a tomato sauce. Fewer fish bits than first time. Big parties were being served so maybe they ran out of supplies and time. Service slow and commandeered by big parties in front and back. Saturday night 8-10. Still good time and will try dish one more time. Fun atmosphere and good staff.
We like trying new restaurants and had not had the pleasure of dining at Trapeze yet. Burlingame has a bustling downtown and nice choices for food.
I first found the restaurant on Opentable (which I could not do without) and liked the menu, as it looked like I would have lots of gluten free options. I found out they have gluten free pasta, which I was very excited about and will try next time; the grilled salmon called to me on this trip. And it was excellent.
The service was attentive, thorough and thoughtful.
I look forward to going back.
We love this restaurant. The staff is wonderful, the food delicious and the restaurant is very willing to make changes to accommodate our diets. We have favorites on the menu but also enjoy trying some of the dishes off the specials menu. We go to Trapeze for date night and for special occasions. We consider it our “Cheers.”
This restaurant was so lovely--one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. I had the filet mingon, as did another of my companions, and the third had the seafood paella. All three meals were wonderfully done. . We also shared the Eggplant Rollatini appetizer, and each had gelato for dessert. The meal was incredible, the staff was so kind and welcoming, and the ambiance was warm and memorable. I will absolutely be back. Thank you for a perfect evening!
The new chef and the menu he has created are fantastic. The secial dinner menu is always changing with exciting, delicious choices. We started with the special salad which tonight included melon, presucitto, lettuce, Gorgonzola cheese. My wife enjoyed the Alaskan scallops, and I loved the gnocchi.
Again we enjoyed friendly, efficient service.
Great place wonderful bartender. The food was great but my ceaser came out with blue cheese dressing what's up with that???? Good ambiance but a drunk next to us kept asking us questions etc. you would think they would cut him off but no give him more drinks. Bad bad. I'll go back but if I see him I'll leave. The service could have been better the bartender is very nice but inattentive. I was told they had new chefs.
