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 pre fixe menu with choices on each course for $38/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.

All dishes were excellent, from the salad to dessert. The service was good as well, although they kept asking to take away our dishes before we were finished eating. I would recommend this restaurant.

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.

We had a really delicious meal with great service. It's a small, tight space and filled up quickly so reservations are a must & expect to sit close to other parties. We'll definitely come back.

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!

The dining experience at Trestle was first rate. The menu is limited on purpose, but everything was terrific. I had the pork loin and my wife had the trout and both dishes were creative, perfectly seasoned and delicious. Even the salad was original and wonderful, as was the green garlic soup. The service was outstanding. The entire staff attended our table so there was no need to track down a single person. Dishes were brought promptly, but we did not feel at all rushed. The only downside was lack of a full bar but we simply walked up the street one block for a pre dinner cocktail. Full marks.

Amazing for the price. Our table was delayed by 30 minutes but the hostess brought us glasses of champagne, on the house, to make up for it. Every dish was delicious as well! I'm shocked at how easy it is to get a reservation here given how high the quality it is, at an incredibly reasonable price.

Pros: tasty food and wine list. Good value.

Cons: Way too loud. Servers kept trying to rush us out. Sat us by the door and it was cold (despite the tiny heater they had blowing at us).

The value for the tasting menu was excellent. Appetisers were fresh and had depth in flavours. For the main, the fish was a winner. The paella risotto was a little bit of a disappointment with no depth in flavour. Desserts were ok. Overall didn’t blow my mind but good value.

Took my girlfriend there for her birthday and they had left a hand written note on our table thanking us for celebrating with them and wishing her a great day. It is really the personal touch that counts at this place. The food was amazing and we both left the restaurant, unable to eat a single bite more. The portions were perfect. I will remember our visit to Trestle for years to come! Can't wait to go back!

I really like to eat at Trestle but dinner there is always noisy. People are standing in front of you while you eat because there’s not much place to wait.
Overall it’s a 4star because of the ambience.
