At Trestle, we remember a time, not too long ago, where people took pause to enjoy a meal in the presence of great company, giving it the reverence and respect deserved. We provide a dining experience served in courses, with the satisfaction and warmth found at a family gathering, creating the foundation to a proper meal. Every night we feature a changing 3 course prix fixe menu with choices on each course for $39/person. We will have an optional additional pasta course for $10/person. Our menu is posted nightly by midnight for the following day. View the menu at www.trestlesf.com We are able to accommodate vegetarian options nightly. We do our best to accommodate other allergies/restrictions based on the menu for that evening.

Food was delicious and sufficient, attractively presented. All four female servers were attentive. The hard surfaces on the furniture and floor made it difficult to hear when the dining room was completely full, but as people left, conversation with your friends became easier. I would reduce the numbers of tables in the dining room given its petite size.

Food was okay, nothing to write home about, the salmon was dry. I felt the service was a bit rushed and not personable, turn and burn to get the next seating in. Value was okay, I felt I could have spent less else where and had a more interesting meal.

Great with two caveats:
- only one bathroom, which is insufficient for number of diners
- too many staff asking if they can take your plate. We felt rushed.

An evening dinner at Trestle was tasty, delicious & fabulous. We noticed the wait staff expertly move within the restaurant to serve your meal, fill up your drinking glasses, even fold your napkins. Service was very efficient and non intrusive. Ambiance was very nice and you can have a good conversation with your dinner mates. Very very good value for the price of their set menu. The menu varies so you may want to check the website which has their menus updated regularly. This place is a gem. The owners are soon opening their sister restaurant in SF called VAULT in the Bank Of America building in San Francisco.
would not hesitate to recommend Trestle to friends and family.

Trestle a small , quaint lovely space . The service is attentive but the courses are presented quickly and it is not a lingering romantic restaurant. The 3 or 4 courses (pasta or risotto recommended). Are delicious.Pork loin was dry but flavors were good . Desserts both had bananas and that was not displayed on the menu for the angel cake .
Return? Maybe . Not the 4.7 and worth an early reservation .

Trestle is my favorite Resturant! We go at least once a month and more often if we can.
The food is so delicious , beautifully prepared and presented. Two choices each night. Always a fish and a meat choice . This is truly an A plus Resturant with the feel of eating at home if your Mother was an
Amazing professional chef.
I really don’t want to go on and on because I will never be able to get a reservation, however I can’t save enough wonderful things about TRESTLE.
They deserve all their success!
Thank you!

You will never leave this place disappointed. The food is outstanding, the staff is awesome and you won't find a better value for your money in our City. I'd like to see the offering be less safe and more imaginative, however. While easily approachable, my last few meals here have been too familiar and basic. A prix fixe menu is the ideal opportunity to perfect a risky dish and create something more memorable so I'm open to new ingredients and combinations that perhaps a traditional format restaurant couldn't pull off.

love trestle, but the service was unexpectedly slow. We had an 830 reservation, but were seated at 9 (but they did provide a glass of prosecco), but then our second course was not served until nearly 9:50! For a Sunday night, where there were not many other patrons, this seemed a bit ridiculous.

I had high expectations and was really disappointed in the food. Everything was meh. I understand it It menu dependent so maybe we just got a bad night. Definitely a great value in the city, can’t argue with that. They also put tables of two together so you pretty much need to be sitting with others. We were chastised when we tried to move a part a bit. Overall very friendly staff just very unimpressed with food.

I really love this restaurant. I think the ambiance and dishes are really great. The only issue is that the service has been going down over time. It takes longer to get seated, even with a reservation. And the timing of food service is unpredictable, resulting in food arriving to your table cold sometimes. I will still go for a while longer, but if the service doesn’t improve, I don’t know how much longer I’ll go.

Trestle is one of our favorite spots in San Francisco! The ONLY pitfall is the noise level, but other than that, it's a 10 out of 10 for food, service, and value!

My wife and I love Trestle. From the staff, the cuisine, and especially the value one receives for the prefix menu, it’s hard to find something better in the Financial District. My only issue is the noise. I gave up trying to talk with my friend during the second half our meal as we couldn’t hear what the the other was saying.

This season's menu is the best among the few i have had at Trestle. The menu has a good balance of vegetables and meat. The flavors from different ingredients are mixed very well. I particularly like the salad of chicories. It is a difficult dish to make for me since chicories usually come with some bitterness. In this dish, however, the poached egg is at the right level of fluidity that mixes the chicories with other things very well and makes the dish light, pleasant, with just a tiny hint of bitterness. I enjoy it very much! Well done !

Amazing food and for a 3 course meal at was very affordable. The manager was the one sour note as we sat down and we're catching up and not looking at the menu fast enough for his taste I guess. He came over and asked if we were ready yet and was very pushy that we get looking at the menu, which was odd because he sat us at our table early so not sure what the rush was. Our waitress on the other hand was very lovely and attentive. Our glasses were never empty whether it was water, beer, or wine! The place is very very small so you are right next to your neighbor. Summary: don't skip it!
