Trellis Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
My friends and I were the only ones in the restaurant at 1p for lunch, which felt kind of weird. My friend asked for wine and the waiter said they didn't have any "bread service" but managed to come up with some after awhile. I ordered a cobb salad with grilled prawns and it was good. Nothing special about our experience.
Trellis used to be one of our favorite places for happy hour. Great Food and happy hour items.
The dinner menu used to have a lot of options also. The menu has changed and I believe due to management change as well. The food is not bad at all mind you, very good but all of our favorite items are no more. The menu is very scaled down and not a lot of choices. Makes us very sad because we loved the old menu and food. Not sure how often we will be going there now
We were here on Halloween night so it was very quiet. We did the 3 for $33 dinner for Restaurant Week. This is the first time we've been here since the chef change and menu redo. Our reaction -- meh. The food preparation was rather uninspired. Very disappointed because this used to be one of our favorite restaurants.
My hubby has Mondays off and many of the places we like to go are sadly closed or just a bit fancy for me tonight. We had the usual debate about some of our favorite places and none resonated with me. While looking on Open table I see that the Trellis has prime rib night on Sunday and Monday nights(sorry, not sorry! I'm a big meat eater partially because I love it and partially because I can't eat grains, legumes and a host of other things) So I eagerly make a reservation, the hubs not as eager (he wanted pasta) We usually have breakfast, lunch or happy hour here, first time for dinner. Not very crowded (it's restaraunt week) I took a look at the restaraunt week menu, looks good but I already know what I want. My hubs ordered a bottle of wine which is 1/2 price on Sunday and Monday's too! (Not all bottles) I opted for a speciality margarita.....and had two. (Don't judge, it's date night.) Beef and booze, happy dance! We split a salad which I must go back for and eat it all to myself. (I'll post a pic) The prime rib was perfect but not the sides(my wacky diet limitations) I asked if I could omit the sides(My hubby had them ant they were delish!) I instead asked for the celeryroot puree (wowza!) and brussel sprouts. Hubs had the almost start to top off the meal and I just had coffee. Great service, great food and no problems with my requests due to my dietary restrictions. This could possibly be our new go-to place on Monday evenings. (Plus they take passport card)
Last time we were at Trellis for brunch....the service was totally unacceptable. I have since been back for a friend's birthday lunch and Jason was our waiter. The service was impeccable! This time, we went back to celebrate 2 birthday lunches with another couple. We got Jason as our waiter and this time the service and the food were excellent. When I made the reservations, I noted that we were celebrating 2 birthdays and that one of them was a 70th. I thought we'd get something "special" from the restaurant...even if just a note at our table. But we got nothing. Most restaurants will give a small birthday dessert with a candle or something. Nothing. A bit disappointing, especially for the 70th birthday. But it won't stop us from going back another time. The food is creative and tasty!
The 5 of us had the Restaurant Week special. Everything we had was great. Squash soup, beet salad, pork cheeks, risotto, and scallops. The berry crisp was good but the pear almond tart was outstanding. Loved the chardonnay flight. We had to wait for our initial drinks a bit, and had to call waiter over to order. He was professional but not friendly-ish. Overall, everyone was impressed and we will definitely be back.
Both food and service were not great. The server was distracted and was not attentive even the restaurant was not busy. There was problem with one of brunch item which got corrected but not handles professionally, and also for the other dish, the egg was very under cooked. We were disappointed and doubt we will be coming back to this restaurant.
