The food was excellent and serving portions very generous. We had the scallops and scallop risotto- very good! Smaller restaurant with nice ambiance and good service

“Great people, good food!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is a place where the locals gather, Steve & Sema the owners go out of there way to make you feel welcome.

Food is always good and a fair value.. Occasionally its spectacular!

Service can be hit or miss depending on the server, but if you have any problems just let Steve know and its taken care of!

“A friendly rstaurant with excellent food.”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

We've been going to this restaurant several times a month since it opened. The owner, Steve, came here from Spiedo in San Mateo. The food is similar (Mediterranian) and they only use the freshest ingredients. They have a bar, but it's usually quiet (women seem to feel safe there). If you don't see what you ant, ask if they can prepare it for you. Often they will. They also have some chairs on the sidewalk for those who like to eat al fresco or who have dogs.

This is a family-owned restaurant, with all the cousins chipping in. The owners (justifiably) take great pride in it.

Recommended dishes: Prawn dinner dalad, Trapeze appetizer salad, sauteed prawns and scallops, duck ravioli.

For those who like to eat late, Trapeze is open until 10:00 pm.

All in all, a real find.

“Comfort and care abound and are topped off with tasty, attractive dishes.”
Reviewed October 14, 2010

I live in the area and have had the pleasure of eating at Trapeze many times. My favorite experience is to eat at a sidewalk table on a sunny Friday afternoon. Not being at the office makes it that much more enjoyable. A glass or two of white wine with a simple salad and some grilled salmon take care of the sensual and nutritional needs. Some casual conversation and laughter fill the social needs. And being in the sun or under an umbrella, allows me to keep life's stresses at bay for a while.
The friendly and attentive service adds that last detail for a perfect afternoon. Skip dinner and wake up early to start another day feeling great.

“Fantastic Restaurant!”
Reviewed February 7, 2009

We just had the most wonderful meal experience at this fantastic place. Parking is easy, the area is nice and safe, the food was wonderful, the wine list was great, the service could not have been better. The waiter even gave our little daughter a free yummy gelato at the end of the meal. The price was quite fair and we would go here again and again and again. YUM!
