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.

Celebrated an anniversary there with my boyfriend, and hostess was incredibly kind and helpful. She greeted us right off the bat and our table was ready in seconds, despite having arrived a few minutes before our reservation. There were many wine options, and I quite enjoyed the pre-fixed menu as it feels a bite more like someone cooking you a dish they love rather than ordering something out. The dining room was the perfect size. There are big tables, and there is plenty of room between you and your neighbors. I had the trout and my boyfriend had the skirt steak. Both were amazing, though I was partial to the steak as the peppers it was served with were very tasty. We added a pasta dish to one of our dinners and split it, and it was well worth the extra money. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

The only reason I am giving this rating a Poor in service, because my group just in an instant paid our bill and one person was still not finished with their glass of wine, they asked us to leave because they needed our table for another group. I felt this was rude and unprofessional.

Such a treat to dine at Trestle! The food is always fresh, unique and tastes delicious. It’s also a great deal for a 4 course menu (can’t NOT include the pasta - haha!)

Came here in November and again in December with two friends. Service was very good. We all had the 4 course menu. 2 of us chose the beef as the main course while one chose the trout. The soup, salad and pasta were delicious. The friend who had the trout enjoyed it but those of us who had the beef found the sauce to be salty. Overall we enjoyed the dinner.

Seasonal, creative, accessible menu that hasn't disappointed in the several times I've gone. I enjoy the playful twists on classic dishes, and honestly the price point is a steal.

Truffles at Trestle
We had wanted to visit Trestle for some time and when their truffle weekend was announced we were thrilled to get a reservation for four. The prix fixe menu doesn’t disappoint. There were 3 courses for $39 with two options each plus a 4th course for an additional $10 and shaved white truffles on any item for an additional $10. The service is exceptional and very friendly. We arrived early and left our wine with the hostess so we could walk around a bit. We were called when our table was ready. There isn’t a bar or a place to wait in the restaurant as it is small and compact. Corkage was $25. We found street parking on a Friday night. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Trestle.

Trestle is my first choice for a prix fixe meal that delivers creative tasty selections. I’ve eaten here multiple times for birthday & anniversary celebrations as well as a satisfying supper prior to an evening of theatre.

My husband and I ordered opposite choices on the fixed price menu, so got to sample all of the offerings that evening. The items that were good were so good (trout, both appetizers), but two items were not good, surprisingly.
The pork loin was not warm, tough and I thought the kale side added a weird flavor. Creme brulee dessert lacked flavor, and the compressed apple garnish was cold and lifeless.
It had been highly recommended so we will try it again sometime in the future.

It was good, not bad. Service was so good, never had to refill my own glass even though there was a bottle there. I mean the food was new and good but I didn’t think it was exceptional. For the price, a three course meal, in San Francisco, it was stellar. I left feeling full which was a concern since many reviews said they left feeling hungry. Bread was exceptional, ask for it!

Second time at Tresle. Remains a favorite due to the good vibes, great food, and super quick service. All around an incredible value for the experience. Out of all the dishes (and we tried everything that day), only one of the optional pasta dishes was not tops. It was a bit too salty. Highly recommended.

Was super excited to try unfortunately they were running behind so we were seated quite late but the hostess was incredibly friendly and offered us a taste of their soup and was sure to serve us drinks while waiting. Food overall was good but timing of our later courses seemed delayed. It took us over 2 hours for dinner, mainly driven by extended timing for entree and dessert courses. For 3 of us on a weeknight it felt long. That said I love the concept and would be willing to give another try.

This place is SO underrated. I almost want it to stay under the radar so it doesn't get too competitive to get a seat here. The food is incredibly delicious. I love the set menu style and the rotating seasonal menu. The ambiance is beautiful but also super inviting. The staff is always amazing and goes above and beyond. I love this place.

Very well executed, fun design, inspired and creative contemporary cuisine. Set menu with perfect sized portions and beautiful presentations. Only negative was not being able to carry on a quiet conversation, too many hard surfaces makes it hard to hear. Tables right next to one another made it challenging to have a nice conversation over dinner. We had the fall pumpkin themed menu which had been advertised in an e-mail from Trestle. My favorites was the curry pumpkin soup, and the salad which was colorful artisan greens with persimmon, and sunflower seed plated nicely with the dressing in the middle of innovative flat dish.

I brought my friend here for her birthday and got the pre-fixe menu for $39. This is generally a good deal for anywhere in San Francisco, but the food was hit or miss. There are 2 options for each course and my friend and I shared every item on the menu.

Some dishes were complete misses with the flavors not complementing each other (i.e. they had one ingredient that just threw the dish off) and some would be good. Everything seemed to be pumpkin themed which after a couple courses gets tiring.

The ambiance and decor were nice and they are thoughtful when it comes to celebrations.

This restaurant touts itself as being a great value- three courses for only $39. I had an awkward experience in that in the dim lighting, I didn't notice that one of the courses was an extra charge. Between that course, sparkling water, and one glass of wine, the dinner ended up being somewhere around $90 per person. I thought it was a mistake and called in. They went over the bill with me to show it wasn't a mistake and offered to take off the price of the additional course. I was embarassed and said "That's okay." The host or manager responded, "Well, if you change your mind, let us know." (Meh.)

Though the portions were on the tapas petite side, the food was nicely prepared. The service was efficient but not particularly friendly.

I was truly looking forward to trying this restaurant but likely would not return.

I’ve had great dinners at Trestle and talked it up to my boyfriend. Have to say it was disappointing. The service was very slow, and especially considering there are only limited options on the menu. The food was just okay. The first course was very good. Pasta was strange- the egg dominated the dish - and didn’t have much flavor. Squid ink risotto was ok. The rest of the meal was fine but felt the wow factor in the overall experience wasn’t per usual.

I was so impressed by the quality versus the price. It was only $49 for a four-course gourmet meal. Three of the courses were very good and one of the courses (the pasta), was phenomenal.

Had an amazing meal with a couple friends at Trestle on Monday. The stand out dish was a coconut and shrimp risotto although everything stood up to our taste test. Also Shaun Livingston (formerly of the Golden State Warriors) sat right next to us! Very cool experience overall

Thank you Trestle staff. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We had an amazing bottle of wine from Austria. Our waiter seemed very knowledgeable about the menu and wine. The pasta add-ons were incredible. Thank you for making it special.
