I was visiting on a business trip and can highly recommend this restaurant. The patio is nicely tucked away from traffic and the grapes were growing on the walls. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was really good. I can highly recommend visiting this place...

First visit was for dinner, 8pm or so, no res, & many empty tables. We were seated right next to the back door to the alley parking so got a good blast of cold air when people exited. We were a couple wearing business clothing. Entrees arrived separately so mine was tepid by the time my friend's arrived. Second visit... More

Traditional Italian food very nicely prepared in an inviting space with great service. The Trellis would be a personal hangout.

Whenever I visit my CA friends, we eat at good restaurants. I ate lunch at the Trellis Restaurant two weeks ago for the first time, and we had calamari for an appetizer. It was the best calamari I've ever tasted. I think I could have made a meal out of the calamari! Then I had a caesar salad with shrimp... More

Trellis Restaurant in Menlo park is a family owned "old world" restaurant. We went there recently for a company party for about 70 people. We had drinks in a hall above the restaurant which also had a fully stocked bar. We came down to the restaurant for dinner. The owner himself was buzzing around the place making sure everything was... More

Attentive service, nice sized menu and well priced for the Palo Alto environs. Do sit upstairs - heaters adequate if there's a chill and with a light wrap. We enjoyed the fish and pasta choices, soup du jour: too few wines by the glass. Desserts are on the small portions and uninspired.

Small, quiet restaurant in the heart of Menlo City. We came here for dinner. The night started a little rough as it was clear the waiter did not understand our drink order - a communication problem. The food was fantastic! Service was good. We would definitely eat here again.

We took my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters to dinner at Trellis on Sunday. As usual, we had a very nice dinner. The menu is expansive, and the food is always very good. The waiter was very attentive. My granddaughters do not eat much, but the older one really liked her pasta.

The rooftop patio was wonderful, I felt like being in Italy. The service was very good and the food delicious. Warmly recommended!

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.

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. Banquet facilities are available for groups from 10 to 120 guests and the Chef will gladly consult on any special banquet catering needs.
