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.

    It sounded good; three courses for $39.99 but then there was tax + 20% service (decided for us) on top. We understand this is the way things are done in the states - we just expected good cooking and generous portions. The service as you would expect was very good, prompt and friendly. The food was disappointing: the heirloom tomato salad; was just a plate of tomatoes, blandly dressed. The black cod was small (the portion sizes were very small unusually for the USA - we both left feeling hungry) and again the sauce was bland. My wife’s ice cream sundae tasted nice - there just wasn’t much of it. My dessert was mediocre; the chocolate cake was dry & bland, it tasted like it had been bought from a cheap grocery store. Based on the reviews; we were disappointed. The best thing about the meal was the bread; we had to ask for it, again the portion was too small. Maybe we are spoilt living in Europe; we were fortunate enough to eat out in Madrid recently, wonderful food, generous portions, great prices.

    Impeccable customer service, everyone was assisting, not just the assigned server. Very creative dishes. Great pacing between courses. Duck course could’ve used a bit extra sauce as it tends to get dry, otherwise food was fantastic! Highly recommend.

    Trestle provided a great dining experience! We had a group of six, and the service was great. They were very accommodating of the vegetarian diners that we had, and everyone really enjoyed the food. The pasta course was especially good, so I recommend adding it. Thanks for a memorable evening.

    First time last year was excellent! Second time this weekend was disappointing. Dishes were not as flavorful; the melon salad was bland and the cake in the sundae was very dense. The pastas fared better and the salmon and steak were just ok. Good selection of wine and service was great and attentive.

    The food is good although the portions are small. Smallest piece of Salmon I’ve ever seen. Problem is that you make reservations not knowing what the menu will be that night and with only 2 choices, you put may or may not love what you get. When we saw the choices we wanted to cancel but then we would have been charged so we went anyway. Service was excellent though!

    Pretentious restaurant that was rushing us when we were eating as they said multiple times they had a a reservation after us. With a 4 course tasting menu they actually served the 2 entree plates at the same time. They also have you secure a reservation with a $25 charge per person if you don’t cancel a day in advance and charges an automatic 20% tip on all checks. Food is okay but not good enough to be this bougie.

    Quite possibly the best dining experience I’ve had in all my visits to the states, not to mention the unbelievable pricing for such top quality food and service. The food was beautiful, the service was genuine and personal. It was my partners birthday and he received a hand written note wishing him a happy birthday, which was a lovely touch. The decor of the restaurant is also very on trend and inviting. Couldn’t rate this place high enough to be honest.

    We tried Trestle for my husband's birthday with my daughter and friend after hearing rave reviews. We were not disappointed! It wasn't just the price value ratio, they hit everything right. The interior is warm and inviting and the wait staff was very attentive. The menu changes weekly and between the four of us we enjoyed everything on the tasting menu. The items were innovative, my first course soup was pour at the table over the chopped onions/bacon and the harissa salad was a masterpiece in display. We also ordered the risotto and pork rib pasta for the table, both rich and deilicous. Both entrees, rockcod and roast chicken with green goddess sauce wer quite good. For dessert the chocolate cream pie and buttermilk cake with figs were a perfect ending. They had a great wine list and we enjoyed two bottles. We will definitely be going back . Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    TL;DR: Trestle is a great restaurant to add to your weekday dinner rotation. Relaxing ambience, quality food at a good price point, with thoughtful and warm casual service. Highlight: Very friendly team and great music! We visited for our anniversary dinner and were delighted to find a cute, hand-written card from the staff welcoming us! Our bubbly server, Tasha, greeted us quickly and gave us the low-down. Food came quickly (much appreciated) and was well paced throughout the night. Beverage service was just touch sluggish but I can expect that at the end of a busy shift. The wines by the glass were suitable companions for the food and were reasonably priced. Food was pretty good throughout and I definitely recommend getting an extra pasta course. A couple forgettable items at the beginning and end but we felt that both options for the pasta and main courses were great! We left full and quite satisfied.

    Struggled to find anywhere to dine on Labor Day, and was really pleasantly surprised by Trestle. Very efficient menu and ordering. Food was all very high quality and a great price. Staff was very attentive with table maintenance. Nice decor and ambience. Leaving a journal as a check presenter was a nice touch. Will definitely recommend to friends

    The menu choices were primo. The summer corn chowder was the seasonal dish I was looking for and chef nailed it. I had the black cod, another winner. I find the skin usually isn’t crispy enough, they got it perfect while keeping the fish tender, flaky and moist. I was a little disappointed in my dessert choice of the chocolate option, but it was quite alright. I was stuffed from the risotto (an extra we ordered) and the two menu items. It wasn’t enough to distract from an outstanding and memorable meal.

    First time dining at Trestle and I can tell that it won't be the last ! First of all, the team was really attentive : I had specified on OpenTable that it will be my partner's birthday and they brought a little card right after our arrival and put a candle on his dessert ! SO NICE ! The food was really good too! It has reminded me the restaurants in my home country (France), with the fixed 3 course-menu. Plates aren't very plentyful but it's just right, you're neither hungry nor super full at the end ! It was tasty, fresh, nicely displayed and there is a deep thought for the harmony of flavors/food pairing. Thank you again and see you very soon !
