Trapeze was a pleasant surprise. It's a nice quiet restaurant at least on a Thursday night. The food was good, but the service was fantastic. Inessa was our server and she was wonderful. She helped us pick a wine, our main course and dessert. She never steered us wrong!

My wife and I visited Tapeze on May 1st. It was a nice meal. Prices were about normal for most dinner house type restaurants. I would recommend Trapeze.

It was unusually hot, made me think it'd been microwaved with a couple of fresh prawns on top. Had an unusual flavor and mushy. Woke up feeling quite bad a few hours later and spent the night throwing up. I was told the game hen was a delight and the other dishes looked okay.

First visit for lunch, friendly staff that allowed us time for friends to chat without rushing the food. The risotto with shrimp was fabulous!

This was our first time in this Mediterranean restaurant. Great experience - good food; we enjoyed their steak and the Greek salad and the paella. The veal piccata was also excellent. Service was above par. We brought our own wine - but there were 4 of us and one bottle did not last long. We'll be back and we'll make... More

We have been there a couple of times. The ambiance, food presentation and service is quite good. It can get on the noisy side, but if you ask to sit by the window, it is the perfect spot for a nice conversation.

In SFO area on business and a ex colleague recently moved to Burlingame and met up for a meal. #1 or 2 on Open Table and good reviews on here as well so thought I'd try it although I'm picky with Italian food (and European). Awesome experience. Great food and service, very traditional atmosphere although a little quiet. Only let... More
