Trellis with the truly unique upstairs patio, Trellis offers, "al fresco dining" along with it many other charms. The new low carb seasonal menu, the vibrant specials and the daily homemade bread, soups and desserts are tantalizing. 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.

Surprisingly Good

We drove by this restaurant on the way to Stanford Medical Center and remarked it could be an interesting place for dinner. On the way back to our hotel, we passed this again and thought this could be the best place in a town that wasn't familiar to us. It just had a nice quaintness to it. We... read more

The three of us stopped in for dinner on the Monday after Thanksgiving. The waiter asked if we wanted to sit in the front or in the back booths. We chose to sit in the front. We each ordered a different entree - risotto - ravioli- gnocchi. All were excellent as was the service by Jorge. We were served a... More

I think people forget about Trellis. The storefront on Menlo Park is not optimal and parking can be tough. But the food is excellent and the upstairs outdoor patio is lovely. We have tried a number of items on the menu and have never been disappointed.

This restaurant is the favorite of a great friend of mine. I can see why and the reason for my return as well. Inspired: the owner keeps us coming back and those steaks! Service: good Atmosphere: simple and welcoming Return: Yes

Nothing really wrong here but the prices are 50% higher than Olive Garden with food quality and service only a bit better. The only bright spot is that it is never crowded which perhaps is the locals voting with the wallets about this place..

My mother's 80th birthday celebration was at Trellis. The room upstairs with bar and patio are great for large family gatherings like ours was. The food was fabulous. And the service was excellent with the owner very involved in making the event a success.

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... More

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 &... More

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... More

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... More
