We really enjoyed our dinner here. The server was excellent and was very helpful with selecting some of our meal. Very much enjoyed the charcuterie selections and the pork tenderloin. We were happy to find some interesting non-alcoholic beverage selections as well. I would happily return.

Trestle on Tenth combines very fine food with a nice atmosphere just steps from the High Line. A terrific place to dine when in Chelsea.

I have eaten here several times before for dinner and liked it very much. This time was disappointing. I ordered a crab cake sandwich and I swear the crab cake arrived at the restaurant frozen on a slab. The result was a tasteless, greasy, perfectly round patty that looked and tasted like it was prepared at a fast food restaurant or a school lunch cafeteria. It's not that hard to make a fresh crab cake and I would expect a restaurant of this caliber to at least make an effort. Get some fresh crab meat and look up the recipe on the internet. My father ordered pate which came in a jar with stale toast points. The bread we had at the start of the meal was good - they should use it for the pate.

Our service was also spotty. Our server was pleasant but forgot to bring us our beers until after our food came. Pro-tip: anyone who orders a beer at lunch really needs it.

I live in the neighborhood and I like the atmosphere of this place and have liked the food in the past - I hope they step up their game.

This was our second trip to Trestle on 10th, which was a recommendation from a friend. The patio is REALLY lovely. The food and service, from the host through to and including everyone who came to the table, was thoughtful, caring, and friendly.

Vibrant and fresh cooking, with something for everyone. Never fails to delight.

My friends and I LOVE this place, especially for lunch/ brunch. Even when they offer "simple" dishes, these turn out to have something original about them and to taste really good. The burger is a case in point; for me, it's quite simply the best to be had, with real meat and wonderfully seasoned. Wonderful oysters too, whimsically served. The wine list is shortish, but I've never had a glass that wasn't delicious. Wait staff are friendly and relaxed in a really good way but also very well-informed and professional.

Love this place. I lived around the corner for years and still go back frequently because even a longer commute is worth it for Trestle on 10th. For brunch, the greenmarket omelet is both simple and perfect. Great coffee too. A West Chelsea gem!

Great find - food was eclectic (go for the lamb/beef hamburger with homemade chips and condiments) Nice wine list and reasonable, good selection of spirits. Helpful staff - give us as much room (time) as we needed. We'll be back.

I had the best sandwich of my life at the Trestle and decided to have dinner there with my husband. We both had brilliant meals. I had Gnocchi that was light as a feather - amazing.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Trestle on Tenth. Everything was beautifully prepared and the wine was exceptional. I had seafood for both appetizer and entree and they were extremely fresh and flavorful. We enjoyed sitting in the lovely enclosed outdoor space. There were no street noises or fumes. Our servers were attentive and answered all of our questions. Definitely returning soon.

I have come to appreciate Trestle on Tenth more and more each time I visit the restaurant. The food is wonderful; there is something for everyone. It's small, but not overcrowded. Finally, the service is phenomenal. Adam is the best server I have ever encountered - he is fun, knowledgeable and just plain great. I highly recommend Trestle on Tenth!

With their interesting menu, we had a lot of questions, and our server was very knowledgeable and patient; he gave excellent recommendations on both the food and wine. We shared a five item meat and cheese charcuterie plate that was beautifully presented and generous. Every item was delicious. Our entrees were also all very good. My husband raved about the lamb-beef burger. The gnocchi was creative and homemade. We especially enjoyed the bottomless complimentary sparkling water. The service was unobtrusive but always there at the right moment.

Had a great lunch at Trestle. The gazpacho with crab and fresh corn was amazing as well as the eggplant pate. Service was friendly and perfect. Loved the ambiance, too

I am a big fan of Trestle on Tenth. The food is great, the atmosphere is casual and inviting. Most important (aside from the great food) is that the service is EXCELLENT!!!!!!!
