Nice for a Pasta based Lunch, eat outside if you can

Have now eaten at Trapeze a few times. It's a favorite in Burlingame for others in my family. Depends whether I'm in the mood for pasta based dishes if I'm wanting to stop here. This past week we had a late lunch, grabbing a table on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. Service has... read more

One of the few restaurants in Burlingame that doesn't close at 9pm. Went in expecting mediocre Italian food, and was surprised to find wide menu options. We both choose the Swordfish steak. Fantastic presentation and outstanding flavor. Staff was exceptional. Rarely do we have dessert, but this place was just too much! We stayed for dessert too! Un-rushed atmosphere was... More

We went to Trapeze to celebrate an anniversary with friends and were delighted with the food and service. We had a couple of specials (lamb shanks that melt in your mouth) and a couple items from the menu and all were well prepared, good sized portions. The service was excellent, offered suggestions and helpful when asked but not intrusive. We... More

If you are looking for a special place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday with wonderful ambience and food this is the place. I can not be more pleased with the attention to detail and seamless experience provided by Steve and his staff. While I can imagine that at times the restaurant can be busy given that there is also... More

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!

Great menu tasty food excellent and most friendly service. Full bar and great wine selection. I go here on my own when out of town guests come to visit me or just to even hang by the bar, at any rate each time I come here I'm treated like family and I mean family!
