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.

A good restaurant for a gathering, a casual date, or just dinner on the town. The food was excellent, nice seasonal ingredients with a good balance of flavor. I’d say get the optional pasta dishes. They were truly outstanding. For the price, you really can’t beat the quality of food and the experience! Highly recommended!

For the price point, the quality of the menu was exceptional and the staff were extremely friendly and equally very proud of working at Trestle. I would highly recommend trying out the menu here and will gladly be returning.

Really enjoyed the dining experience. It was great from the get go. The staff decanted our wine while we waited for our table. After sitting we had a nice card for our anniversary waiting for us which was a classy touch. The menu is pre made new every night so you don't have to select too much which is nice for people with food fomo or indecisive. The service was impeccable and the food had delicious flavors with every bite and great presentation. Overall really enjoyed it and was well prices for what you're getting. We had forgot our bottle when we left and the server chased us down the street to give it back to us. Really appreciated that!

Great food but service was slower and less attentive than usual tonight. Maybe because of the North Beach Festival and Father’s Day made it busier than usual, Seats are not that comfortable and it is too loud for conversation. Pluses include we were seated right away, food was delicious, and they accommodated a food allergy at our table without any hesitation.

This was my second time at Trestle, and again, had a great experience! The presentation and the food never disappoint. The service is also outstanding. I brought a friend here for their birthday, and they added a couple extra touches which made the overall experience memorable. Thank you Trestle, I'll be back again for a third time!

As always, a great meal. Fantastic offerings despite only 2 selections per course. For 2 people I recommend splitting one of the pasta supplements as 1 each is too much food. It was 100 degrees out and very hot inside the restaurant, although the staff provided folding hand fans for everyone to use to keep cool...a nice touch

Remains one of the best values in SF. Excellent food, served in a lovely atmosphere, with great service. 3 courses, each delightful. My wife and I both had the stone fruit salad that was light, refreshing and tasty. That was followed by the pork loin with potato pave, which was cooked to perfection and was utterly delicious. My wife tried the berry tart for dessert and I had their version of black forest cake (thankfully without the coconut shreds). Both were excellent, but the black forest cake shone in particular, moist, chocolatey, mmm. Supplemented by a decent wine list. An old favorite, and likely to remain on our list of repeat visit destinations.

Trestle is one of our very favorite SF restaurants. You really can't get a better meal for such value! On a recent visit we had a silky, super flavorful corn chowder, a stone fruit salad & perfectly cooked salmon. The lime mousse desert was one of the best ever. This was a perfect early summer meal that highlighted fresh produce.

What a pleasant surprise! Enjoyed everything about our experience at Trestle. Wonderful choices for the prix fixe menu. I always have such a difficult time choosing from a large menu and it was a no brainer to make our choices -One of each! Attention to detail was number one. Plating was beautiful and each course was so thoughtfully put together. Grilled bread was yummy! Great service and we were able to dine leisurely.

I was very excited to make a reservation at trestle. From the reviews, I expected a wonderful experience of both foods and service. We were let down because (1) the main course was simple and not hearty enough, (2) the two add on dishes were explained that it was sufficient for 2 people but the size was really only for 1 person (3) the service was awfully slow especially that the menu was a prefixed menu and (4) it was really warm in the restaurant. Was the restaurant over hyped? I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and think they had a bad night, but I do feel that the experience should have been better, especially the service!

We had dinner on a week night at this restaurant. Although we arrived 15minutes earlier than our reservation time we were seated promptly. The tables are rather small and close to each other and feels as if you are sitting at a communal table but the decor is appealing and does not distract from the food. Our sever was very professional, informative and efficient. The concept of the restaurant, ever changing pre fix menu of three courses and one additional pasta dish is a great idea and works well when the food is this high quality. That night both starters, the onion soup and a lettuce salad were beautifully arranged on the plate and delicious. A risotto and a ragu as the pasta additional dishes were perfectly executed, risotto, creamy, clams were tender and juicy, the papardella was al dente. The braised ribs as the main course was probably the best I had in my life. Pana cota with Meyer lemons and edible flowers were too pretty to eat but I’d did not leave a piece on the plate. The wine list is short but has some of the top rated wines from every major region in the world and remarkably the mark up is quite acceptable. We had a Cornas from 2015 with a WS rating of 95 that night which was perfection on its own. I recommend this restaurant highly and I will definitely visit it during my next trip to San Francisco.

I began to visit Trestle with family and guests when it first opened. I have since returned several times and I was never disappointed. Last Friday four of us went again for the 5:30 pm sitting. As expected, the food was very good and the wait staff was efficient and yet accommodating. Yes, the place was loud and we ended up shouting at each other a bit. But we had fun. How could we argue with it’s simple but smart prix fixe menu.

When the bill came I was not too sure about one of the charges but I didn’t want to embarrass our guest. I left the restaurant confused. Later, my daughter called to question said charge. Impressively the staff person politely and patiently cleared her doubt.

Are we going back! You bet!

This place is a gem! Great value for great food. We found that the regular three course meal was plenty of food, though we did order the bread, which was wonderful. We we had a reservation for 5:30 on Friday night, got there on time and were seated right away. The service was attentive and the space is lovely. Lots of hard surfaces so it does get noisy.

Service was amazing. The food was decent and well worth the money. I enjoyed each dish individually, but as a pre fixe there wasn't much of a flow to the dishes. The ambiance wasn't what I was expecting. My friend recommended this restaurant as a good date night spot, but the noise level was a lot higher than I expected it to be, which was fine, but a little hard to have a conversation with my date. Will definitely go back.

Fabulous gem in a city of great restaurants. Very creative use of seasonal ingredients and beautiful presentation. Since all they serve is a prixe fix menu you might not want to take your least adventurous friend here, but even my picky husband was delighted with the meal. Interesting wine list at good prices. Service is attentive, if somewhat rushed. We were in and out in less than an hour (good if you're trying to catch a show, not so good if you are looking for a leisurely meal).
