Stressed out service team. Oysters persoaked in mignonette not ideal. Caesar salad strange. Excellent wine and dessert. Chef left, sous chef and staff in flux. Give them a few months. Stellar complimentary ride home when Uber cancelled.
I've been going to Trellis for years and they've gone thru several changes in their kitchen....some improvements, some not. They still need more entree size salads with the opportunity to add shrimp or chicken etc. Normally the service is good but this time it was horrible. We sat for 45 mins waiting to order a drink after repeatedly stopping servers and asking when we could order. We were told their was only one server??? Why....during a busy dinner time??? Finally the manager came and took our drink order.
It was incredibly loud on the patio and we could barely hear each other talk.
We ordered two appetizers and two salads and we were denied using our Passport card when it's been accepted before for the least expensive item. I was too exhausted to argue with them.
I hope they add more staff, more salads and bring shrimp back.
They fired the chef the day before and didn't tell anyone.... The food was tasteless. we have been there before and enjoyed it, but to fire the chef and not let reservation holders know is wrong !!! The new management has no moral fiber and put the dollar ahead of their customers!!! I spent $175 for crap food and disappointed guests.
Great place for brunch and enjoy a conversation with friends during the weekend. Friendly staffs and nice selections on the menu.
I highly recommend this restaurant and the Heathman for any special occasion or just a casual get together. The customer service from the instant I walked in to the point we left was impeccable. Wonderful rooms, food was amazing, drinks were creative, and the staff positive and upbeat. Will definitely return again soon.
Don’t usually review, but we were really disappointed in our Valentine meal. We were kept waiting for over half an hour past our week long reservation, and then they wanted to seat us on the patio. When requesting a seat inside, they accommodated is by placing us right next to the kitchen door, even though there were 5 or so empty tables right beyond us. They also decided to do a (very) limited menu, and the choices were poor...spare ribs, scallops, pepperdella pasta, and ?, and they had raised the prices to $55 for a 3 courses. There were no salads available. If the food had been amazing, it might have made up for the menu, but the dishes were a 5 of 10 at best. We have been here many times before, and this was the worst meal we have had. Lackluster all the way around...Perhaps under different management ??
Enjoyed a very nice lunch with friends. Food was delicious and service was great.
Great food and drinks as always! Our waitress, Sarah, is newer but she was wonderful even she was a bit busy.
Brunch was delicious; food was aesthetically pleasing and absolutely delectable.
The service was excellent and very efficient. We were able to sit at a patio table because they have a very nice enclosing for the winter months with nice warm heating. The lavender french toast was unique and delicious and they serve local Cafe Vita coffee, brewed to perfection. Looking forward to returning again to try their dinner menu.
Good food, friendly service, nice ambience, would definitely go back.
Farm to table food at Trellis is good at always. This time, our service is even better than in the past. I look forward to go back again soon.
Service was SO slow and the place was less than half full. What’s up with that?
Hooray for the new chef at Trellis!
We enjoyed a fabulous lunch,creative and extremely flavorful!
My lunch companions and I think that the new chef is talented, the service exemplary and are quite sure that Trellis is off to great things ahead!
Excellent service and very good meals. Beer list also good with IBU's listed to make ordering easy.
The ambiance was delightful. Clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was fresh and delicious. Reasonably priced.
When we approached the greeter, they asked “can we help you?”. Not, “Hi, welcome, we’re glad you’re here”. We sat at the table, there were only a couple other people at the restaurant, atmosphere was very low of energy, looked up and there was a dead moth in the light fixture right above our heads. We had a couple of glasses and started with a bread appetizer. The waiter was not helpful in telling the difference between the two that they offer. When we received the bread, it was awful. Cold, hard, like it had been left out for three days and no rosemary as indicated. We inquired about the menu items, and when once again, questions were very difficult for him to answer, we asked for the bill and went down the street to Hector’s, which was great. I do not recommend this place.
Terrible.....we went at 2:25 and was told they were not seating because they stopped serving lunch at 2:30......we were there early ...we had a 6 pm reservations....so told her to cancel that ...and she could not find our reservation...so we left......
First time eating at Trellis. We checked in on Christmas Day and had the special Christmas dinner menu. Several choices to pick from for each course. Very good choices. I was very happy to have a fresh oyster choice for first course. My husband enjoyed the crab salad. He had scallops as entree and I really enjoyed the beef with a bone marrow sauce. The beef was cooked perfectly and I had some leftover to take home. I had honey chestnut pudding for dessert and my husband had the bread pudding. We were both happy. There was an amuse bouche at the beginning of the meal. Nothing special. Also a glass of Rose or sparkling cider. The Rose was perfect with my oysters. I had one of the best cocktails ever. A Manhattan made with duck fat infused Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
We stayed the night and had breakfast before leaving. Good, but not great.
We would definitely go back for Christmas dinner if it was offered. Considering the staff was working on Christmas, everyone was friendly, helpful and appeared happy to be there.
Christmas Day Dinner: after a rough year our family wanted to splurge on a truly special Christmas dinner. The food was beautiful and delicious. Our table by the emergency exit was less than elegant, and the staff did their job but was formal and not particularly fun or engaging. At more than $100 per person this was by far the most expensive meal we've ever eaten but not the most delicious, elegant or fun. Really really good but not epic for the high price.
Wonderful staff. Good food. Beautiful setting.
I am sorry this review forces 50 characters, totally unnecessary and poor form (this relates to this Open Table review format and NOT the Trellis)
Low key fine dining for every meal. Food prepared well for a special meal (not standard fare and well prepared and presented), very nice breakfast service. Service is casual and somewhat detracts from the fine restaurant dining experience (food passed across the table when not necessary to pass), but attentive and friendly, and that is what is important to us!
Easy access for handicapped family/ friends, but ask for table if a booth would be a problem.
Set price three course menu choices for Christmas were lovely but seemed rather high priced for the overall experience. We all enjoyed our meal and were grateful for the Christmas day service.
wait time was far too long for entrees. multiple staff apologized for this incuding manager who offered to make it up to us. unfortunately that was simply a free dessert we didnt order. we all including two 6 year olds waited nearly 45 minutes for entrees.very disappointed as we typically enjoy the restaurant and have recommended the hotel to visiting guests.
Trellis has been our office Christmas lunch venue for the past three years. We looked forward to another great lunch this year but the menu and the quality had changed for the worse. The menu is very limited with offering you would expect to find at Denny’s. Two of us ordered chicken Caesars that were two full heads of hearts of Romaine split lengthwise that was very lightly dressed. The chicken was fine but not abundant enough to keep up with the romaine. The rest of us got BLTAs that were okay but cold and flavorless. Only one of us finished it. The house wines have also slipped. We won’t be back. It’s too bad because this used to be great place to go.
We had early-morning breakfast for 2. The restaurant was empty, the server was attentive, the menu had such creative, locally-sourced options. The food was rich and the portions were large. We took home a carry out box, and the leftovers were delicious the next day.
Hands down, THE best "French dip" in the world! Delicious prime rib sandwich, I've been thinking of it non stop since I ate there Friday! Will return with husband. I can't think of any restaurant on the Eastside that's worth the drive over the bridge from Seattle other than Trellis!
I didn’t find the menu very interesting. My Caesar salad was the worst one I have ever had, I was so disappointed.
Great quality for a reasonable price. Excellent service!
I went there for brunch with some friends. It costs a little more than average and for what I ordered. The servers were friendly and the mini donuts tasty! Next time I go, I will order something out of the ordinary.
It's quite different since the remodel to more casual & a drastic reduction in menu choices. Liked it much better before. I was dismayed having brought friends for the first time. $7 for a mediocre bread basket is outrageous. I've always liked the creativity & attention to local but this will not be on my evening dining list any longer.
Great place! Very relaxing atmosphere.
This is a restaurant that I eat at regularly- but will no longer be on my Kirkland favs list....service was exceptionally slow...we ordered in a timely manner because we were going to a performance and we alerted our server. We ordered a bottle of wine and two cocktails...the cocktails finally came after the salad was served after we alerted the server again that they had not been served...the main courses did not come out at the same time...one guest had to wait for the burger while the rest of the party ate....had to request refill of water service 2 times... the rib eye steak was fatty and full of grissle and less than half of it was edible...$42???? really???? The whole meal was a huge disappointment...all of the diners are residents of Kirkland and have been frequent customers....nevertheless I did leave a 20% tip as I think the server was on "overwhelm" and received little to zero backup from other staff...I did notice that the resturant was less than 1/2 full and it was not the "busy" evening as expected and claimed prior to ordering.
I really like this Restaurant the food is very good. It would be nice to have a couple more menu choices to be able to pick from. You can eat fairly healthy which is nice. It can be a good date night place or great place to meet friends and family!
As always, Trellis exceeds expectations. Sunday brunch was incredibly delicious and they also served my favorite bubbles (Lucien Albrecht Rose) by the glass. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and spot on. I have never had anything I didn't like at Trellis!
Their special Thanksgiving service was a bit of a joke.
Their menu they showed online was shortened and omitted two items from their entrees, along with two from their dessert list.
Our waitress was very nice and she was more than open about why she had no clue about what each menu item was like from the selections from either dessert, or the entrees. They didn't let the servers try them to help the guests with questions on what they might choose.
The dinners when they came? They rushed them out so quickly that they forgot items on our Turkey dinners. The scallop plates had different amounts of scallops and overall the plates seemed rushed from the kitchen in a restaurant that wasn't full at all.
The real shame of it all.. You get to spend $100 a person for this rushed feeling being thrown at you, with no care, or consideration for what you are spending, it is like they have taken the "You are lucky that we were even open to serve you" mentality, while take your money and run.
Was the food bad? No, it was just an odd meal to say the least, from the waitress, to the incomplete plates and the omissions from the menu they make without any sort of heads up whatsoever. I let them know that what they were saying on their initial menu isn't what was being said in articles on the web about Thanksgiving dinner at their restaurant. Yes, I did check to make sure it was 2017. I asked about their wine list and was told they would email me it to look over, it was never sent and even when we sat down I had to ask for the wine list. They are a clueless bunch.
Overall... No, I wouldn't recommend people taking their family to Trellis for a holiday meal. They are doing it for the extra money they make on those days, you are just a pawn in their little game of Trellis being open.
Had traditional Thanksgiving dinner there. The turkey tasted like smoked pork; entree consisted of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and a small portion of cranberry sauce for $94 (entree and tax). No salad, nor appetizer nor any green vegetable. Way TOO expensive for what was served.
Won't go there for a special occasion event again. And will seriously think twice before going for a regular dining experience.
Lunch time in Kirkland at Trellis was enjoyable. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. Quiet and enjoyable spot for lunch.
Amazing as always never disappoints. I’ve only checked great for brunch because that’s all we go to at the restaurant. Try their pancake the non ricotta one best thing ever!!
Did a fantastic job accommodating a guest who had complex and unusual dietary restrictions. Bar service is easily the best in Kirkland.
We celebrated my parents anniversary there, and it was the perfect spot. They were accommodating of the fact that we had a variety of ages of people in our party (my 7 month old son was there), and yes the restaurant still felt very classy.
