    Great food. Service was satisfactory. No drink menu was offered; appetiser came after the entree. I loved the ambience but will never go back there after this experience. There are other places near where I live that meet/exceed expectations.

    As always, the food and service was terrific! There were many people taking advantage of the lovely evening and were eating in the patio so the noise level was higher than ususal, but it was all very enjoyable! We love Trellis and that's why we keep going back!

    It’s always a fun atmosphere to go to Treas restaurant. Especially if you’re able to sit up on the second floor and overlook El Camino Real. But the food is wonderful and the weight staff is very personable and friendly. It’s excellent value for the dollar. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed.

    What a wonderful lunch. Our server ID 2, was courteous and friendly. It’s a lovely restaurant and I will come back. I ordered Spaghetti al pesto/chicken fillets/sun-dried tomatoes & pine nuts. It arrived pipping hot and was delicious. Bread with olive oil & balsamic vinegar was served. Great food, relaxing and polished interior.

    Food was excellent. The menu specified in blue letters that 20% was added automatically to the bill. So we paid the amount on the credit card form without checking anything, and walked out. Our server came running after us in the parking lot where we were chatting with the owner. The server complained that we did not tip him! He said that he ignored the menu instructions to include service. We gave him a cash tip of 30%, but that left us irritated that the owner who was right there said nothing.

    Staff was very attentive and courteous. The restaurant was really busy- Valentine’s dinner- but we were promptly seated and our orders were taken quickly. Food is delicious - we started with the apple and goat cheese, followed by veal scallopini and the gnocchi , and finish with Tiramisu. The scallopini was a little bit on the dry side but the sauce was very tasty. Our experience was very good and would return.

    I indicated the reservation was for a birthday. The restaurant ignored that. Someone was sitting at the bar and playing a game show on his phone. It was so loud it was annoying. The food was decent but not exceptional. Wait staff was courteous.

    Hubby and I went here for New Years Eve. We always go on special occasions. The food here is always delicious, the ambience very pleasant, and the service is excellent. My husband always gets the Veal Scalopini and the Prawn Appetizer. I usually get the polenta appetizer and a salad. Everything perfect as usual. Highly recommend.

    We went on Friday Nov 17 on a 5:45 reservation. All 4 of us got there on time. Took a long time to order food. Waiter was busy. After dinner, took even longer to get the bill. We waved at the waiter many times. He just ignored us. Finally left at 7:10. We missed our music performance at Menlo College. Two of our party had to go home because we were so late no seats were available.

    Best restaurant in Menlo Park! Kurt and everyone else there treat us like royalty every time we visit! It feels like they’re part of our family, and we’re part of theirs. The linguini with clams and seafood pasta are my two all time favorite dishes,and my mom loves the chicken piccata. I have yet to find a dish I don’t like there. Oh and the zabaglione is to die for, definitely not to be missed!
