Very ordinary food menu. Nothing stood out. Flavors in recipes were not innovative or inspired. Friendly staff but made many mistakes on billing. Beautiful murals on walls and outstanding outdoor rooftop seating only in good weather.

Friendly, dressed-down place with a wide menu of basic, familiar (predictable) Italian food. Trellis and its menu could be located anywhere in the US, though this being Silicon Valley, the entree and salad prices feel about 30% higher than they "should" be. But, the food is tasty and the wine by the glass is reasonably priced. Probably more of a... More

Conveniently located in the center of Menlo Park on El Camino. Salad was okay, chicken could have been better. Full bar, attentive staff. If you need to quickly find available restaurant in the area, maybe this is the place.

This was our second time back with friends as they really like this restaurant. It was Mother's Day & we arrived for their last seating. Granted it was Mother's Day but the service was incredibly slow & surely, they were out of their good wines and without good substitutes, out of bread, out of many dishes & had no napkins... More

I was visiting on a business trip and can highly recommend this restaurant. The patio is nicely tucked away from traffic and the grapes were growing on the walls. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was really good. I can highly recommend visiting this place...

First visit was for dinner, 8pm or so, no res, & many empty tables. We were seated right next to the back door to the alley parking so got a good blast of cold air when people exited. We were a couple wearing business clothing. Entrees arrived separately so mine was tepid by the time my friend's arrived. Second visit... More

Traditional Italian food very nicely prepared in an inviting space with great service. The Trellis would be a personal hangout.

Whenever I visit my CA friends, we eat at good restaurants. I ate lunch at the Trellis Restaurant two weeks ago for the first time, and we had calamari for an appetizer. It was the best calamari I've ever tasted. I think I could have made a meal out of the calamari! Then I had a caesar salad with shrimp... More

Trellis Restaurant in Menlo park is a family owned "old world" restaurant. We went there recently for a company party for about 70 people. We had drinks in a hall above the restaurant which also had a fully stocked bar. We came down to the restaurant for dinner. The owner himself was buzzing around the place making sure everything was... More

Attentive service, nice sized menu and well priced for the Palo Alto environs. Do sit upstairs - heaters adequate if there's a chill and with a light wrap. We enjoyed the fish and pasta choices, soup du jour: too few wines by the glass. Desserts are on the small portions and uninspired.

Thank zabeanerchicago

Trellis with the truly unique upstairs patio offers, "al fresco dining", along with it several dining room options. The new low carb seasonal menu, the vibrant specials and the daily homemade bread, soups and desserts are fantastic. A warm-comfortable dining room and banquet-catering facilities with 2 full bars, insure that Trellis is the choice for any occasion. Banquet facilities are available for groups from 10 to 120 guests and the Chef will gladly consult on any special banquet catering needs.
