Description: Trellis with the truly unique upstairs patio offers, "al fresco dining", along with it several dining room options.

A warm-comfortable dining room and banquet-catering facilities with 2 full bars, insure that Trellis is the choice for any occasion.

“Good Food; Very popular”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

The food was very good. We were with a large party that took up the whole back room. There is a back entrance where people can enter from the parking lot though the middle of the dinners. It was a bit distracting having the door open all the time and interfering with the waiters trying to serve. But the food was worth it. I would go back, but I would sit in the front.

“Always warm & friendly---w/great food”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

This has been one of Mom's favorite restaurants for a couple of years, so when we were planning a 90th B'day celebration, we called Kurt the Owner/Mgr along with 2 other restaurants (for comparison). Trellis stepped up big time & it was an event that all 50 people enjoyed immensely---AND each & every one said they enjoyed the ambiance & fare ever so much. We limited the menu to 3 entrees---Veal Cannelloni (Mom's favorite), Caesar Salad with Chicken Filets, & Fresh King Salmon poached in Chardonnay. It was preceded with a choice of salad or Mushroom-Marsala soup (both great). It was reasonably priced, and served with much warmth & charm---by both the waiters & the manager himself.

“Nice lunch place”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The restaurant has a really nice patio setting, with grape vines overhanging and we can ask to taste the grapes when in season. The lunch offering has many choices, with a nice salad (my preference) or soup. I tried several lunch entrees. All are of high quality. It is slightly pricy but probably not out is line for the Menlo Park location.

“Average food”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

I had a special coupon for this restaurant which is the reason I gave it a try. There are many better on University ave. so I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Pluses: It is close to Stanford University, about a mile north. Very easy to get a table, not many patrons at 6:00 PM.

Minus: There was nothing special about the food or drink here. I had a drink, salad and duck as the main course. There was nothing wrong with anything, but at the same time there was nothing special.

“Nothing to write home about”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Mediocre service and fine but not memorable food made our experience here tolerable but not something we are likely to repeat anytime soon. Running out of items on a not very busy Saturday night, messing up the order and slow, poor service made it an evening to forget. Our favorite memory of the night was when the waiter came by to ask how everything was...and he had only brought water at that point. We complimented him on the water and knew we were in for a looong evening!
