Hi Neighbor!

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 day 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 $12/person. Unfortunately, we do not offer ala-carte options.

We are able to accommodate vegetarian options nightly. We do our best to accommodate other allergies/restrictions based on the menu for that evening.

Due to our limited spacing, we can accommodate parties of 8 or less only.

    The waiter that took us in was friendly but our designated waitress was not in a good mood. She didn't check in on us once during the meal and wasn't really smiling the whole time. Overall, the food was good but the service is just nuetual.

    First time visit for a small retirement celebration with family. Expected it going in but it does get quite loud. Was foggy out so would have been nice if the dining room were a little bit brighter. The vidalia onion soup was very nice. Would have preferred more almond flavor in the chocolate almond cake since it was very subtle. Enjoyed experiencing some new flavor combinations on one of these rare occasions that I splurge on a meal. The servers seemed quite knowledgeable.

    We made a reservation for 7:45 and when we called to let them know we were going to be a little late, it was not an issue! The service was good and everyone acted professional. We just about got every drink imagined; beers ,wines, dessert wine and coffee. The food was impeccable; as expected however, I didn’t realize the duck would be deep fried and I was a little taken as no one mentioned but otherwise, the rest of the meal was great! Once I ate more the duck was delicious! Thank you for an Amazing meal, memorable dinner and the great service. We’ll be back, you can count on that!

    The Good: - amazingly attentive & knowledgeable waitstaff - dishware was very nice The Bad: - duck confit had not been rinsed thoroughly so the finished product was too salty to enjoy - the rice in the corn risotto needed 2-3 more minutes to finish. There was a hard, but not crunchy, chew - the stone fruit in the salad could’ve used a roast/broil. Fruit was unripe, flavorless and crunchy - chocolate almond cake was underwhelming - sound battens or something need to be in place. We had to yell at each other to be heard. Wait staff had to speak up and/or repeat themselves.

    Food was very flavourful. Definitely not worth the price though - $142 for 2 people and that was with one glass of wine. Small space means that loud people make it hard to hear when you’re with someone. Definitely cozy. Service was slow and waiters were unenthusiastic.

    The restaurant was so cacophonous that you could not hear yourself think The food was inventive and mostly well executed but the stone fruit salad tasted more like stone than fruit because the produce was not ripe. Portions are famously small and the wine list is extortionate, removing any economic advantage of the putative $39 prix fixe menu that quickly balloons with the $12 risotto upsell (which is necessary so you don't starve). Wearing the the sort of earmuffs that ground crews use to drown out the jets at SFO, I might try going there again. But not until my ears stop ringing.

    We saw the good reviews about this restaurant and how it was good for date nights. We decided to come here for our 26th anniversary dinner. It was an excellent choice. The food was delicious. I love the menu concept: Pick from the two items available for each course. We did get the pasta course and it was amazing. Don’t pass it up.

    We were very pleasantly surprised by Trestle. We chose the restaurant because we were going on a date night to a nearby theater. Due to traffic, we were running late and called the restaurant to let them know. They were incredibly gracious about accommodating us and kept us posted about when the table needed to be turned around. Our server was calm and gracious and really made us feel taken care of. We each chose a different starter, pasta, entrée, and dessert. While all were extremely delicious, there were several standouts due to the interplay of flavors on the plate. Our favorites included the summer squash soup with peanut salsa macha and cotija, the roasted pork loin with plums and marinated beets, and the lemon verbena panna cotta. One thing to note: it's not obvious, but the pasta course is an additional cost. The three included courses were plentiful and adding the fourth course was almost too much.

    Simply put, you will not find better value anywhere in the city. But in no way does that value come at the cost of quality or service, both of which are of the highest level. Book it and go: you won’t be disappointed.

    Decided to go here for my birthday dinner with some friends. I remember seeing this place showcased on one of the travel food shows. Had the 4 course pre-fix meal, did not disappoint. Also asked for a wine pairing and it was a perfect French white wine. Price did not break the bank for such a great meal in Jackson Square. Will definitely be back.
