I booked Trapeze for a business function. We hold several of these events around the country every year, and we always take our high-end clients to dinner. This was, by far, the worst place we've ever held our dinner. They placed us in the very back of the restaurant in something that looked and felt like a cleaned out storage... More

Trapeze is located in the quaint downtown area of Burlingame. It's not going to be the top gastronomic choice you've ever made, but it tries hard to please and the fare is on the plus side of average. Very accommodating service. For us it was much more about the company we were with than the dining experience.

Have been to Trapeze a number of times and the food and service are very good. I like their chicken and beef dishes. Tables are easy to access and the staff do a great job of making you feel welcome. Have brought our own wines and they are happy to serve them and often we share a taste with them.... More

A staple of Burlingame and a favorite of all. The food here is consistently good. Well sourced and well prepared. I particularly like the fish specials. The fish is always fresh and the prep is usually straight forward and designed to enhance the qualities of the fish not hide them. The wine list is good and the bar is decently... More

We are from Nevada & met friends before flying out of SFO - we walked into a beautiful restaurant, greeted by the owner. We had a wonderful dinner of Petrale Sole, Atlantic Salmon, & Seafood Paella, along with a great bottle of Joseph Carr wine from Hopland. Everything was fantastic. If we lived near this restaurant, it would be a... More

We have been to Trapeze before and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. This time the food was excellent along with very good service but the noise level was way too much. The restaurant was full but the noise came from a large private group in the banquet room that ended up at the bar to continue their party.

We've been going to this Trapeze for years, and have never had a bad meal. Most recently I had the duck breast, and it was the best I've ever had. Each year on Thanksgiving they serve a turkey dinner that again, is the best I've ever had. If you read this before Thanksgiving, give it a try. You won't regret... More

We parked in one of the municipal lots and wandered until we found an interesting looking place for dinner. Very comfortable atmosphere and a good selection of wines by the glass. Appreciated the spacing of the tables - that gave more a feeling of more personal space than you often get in restaurants and it kept the noise level down... More

Trapeze is a great neighborhood restaurant with just the right amount of familiarity. The food is great and the bar is quite good. If you like Manhattans ask Steve to make you one... you won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly and attentive. With very few visits, you'll feel like you're going to your cousin's house for dinner, but hopefully... More

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 always been timely and attentive.... More
