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.

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

Attended a business dinner here. Service was prompt and courteous. I asked for a recommendation ("what are you famous for?") and was pointed to the seafood pastas. Had the prawn pasta, was okay, not fabulous. Carpaccio and calamari also both okay, not great. Nothing objectionable, just underwhelming.

They have great service, lots of different spaces to sit both inside and outside surrounded by the grapevines. You feel like you have been transported to Italy. Great choice of wines and local favorite pastas. Hope to go back soon when the weather is warmer to sit outside and watch the sunset with friends.

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).
