Hi Neighbor!

At Trestle, we remember a time, not too long ago, where people took pause to enjoy a meal in the presence of great company, giving it the reverence and respect deserved. We provide a dining experience served in courses, with the satisfaction and warmth found at a family gathering, creating the foundation to a proper meal.

Every day we feature a changing 3 course prix fixe menu with choices on each course for $39/person. We will have an optional additional pasta course for $12/person. Unfortunately, we do not offer ala-carte options.

We are able to accommodate vegetarian options nightly. We do our best to accommodate other allergies/restrictions based on the menu for that evening.

Due to our limited spacing, we can accommodate parties of 8 or less only.

    Trestle is still one of SF's good value deals. However, when you order 'ahi tuna', be aware that you will receive a very thin piece of fish, thinnest tuna I've ever had and a bit dry. On the other hand, their steak dish looked to be a good-sized portion, but you can only get medium rare or well done portions. Every dish was tasty but not as hot as it could be.

    Food was fantastic, up until the dessert, chocolate cake was a little dry. Otherwise outstanding. I had the salad and trout. Well done, Trestle! Cabernet Sauvignon was very good as well. A bit noisy and packed so a little hard to hear as everyone was speaking very loudly.

    If you’re thinking about reserving a table here, just do yourself a favor and book it right now. Dining at Trestle was the best restaurant experience I have had in many many years. The service was some of the best I’ve seen, and I’ve been in foodservice for over fifteen years. The food was out of this world. Every bite I had was absolute perfection. I cannot possibly say enough good things about Trestle, its staff, and its manager, Jason. Seriously, book your table now

    Tasty courses with a rapid pace of eating. Portions are small but well prepared. Cost for two with a glass of wine each was almost $150 including an automatic 20% tip plus a tax. Overall good but more expensive than expected

    My bf and I came for the first time on a night away from the kids. We had such a wonderful time! We wanted for nothing-as soon as we finished a course they staff was immediately there to remove our dishes and would promptly swoop in with the next course. It was so neat to see a full house again on an evening out! It was so hard to pick a favorite dish, as we enjoyed them all so much! We definitely plan to come again the next time we find ourselves in SF!!!

    With high inflationary pressure, we do appreciate Trestle tries not to raise their price. However, understandingly, some of their excellent dishes may not be offered like rock shrimp risotto or their pork chops. I am hoping Trestle will consider a modest price adjustment and bring back some of their signatures. Still one of the very best values in town, not to mention the excellent and friendly services as always !!!

    The food was mostly delicious, especially the short rib beef, although I found the deserts disappointing. I’d have expected something a little more exciting than a bit of cake with marscapone or ice cream. Service was friendly but a little too hurried . It felt like no sooner had you finished your plate that it would be taken away and the next course would arrive. A more relaxed pace would have made a more enjoyable evening.

    Seated at a table where servers bumped into me all throughout the meal. The server seemed annoyed when we weren’t ready to order when he came by. The food itself was delicious and the pre fixe menu was worth the value. The overall experience clouded by the subpar service.

    This is one of my new favorite gastronomy experiences and should be Michelin rated, in my humble opinion. The food is amazing and is elevated by the presentation. The staff is attentive without being intrusive, only improvement to be made is being proactive in offering recommendations for wine based on the order. The ambiance is trying to be hip with its exposed but painted brick, metal structural elements, and lovely natural wood furniture, but misses the mark due to the auditory reflections from the paint that require one to yell to be heard. The art on the walls is modern but unimaginative and placed way too high to be enjoyed when facing the wall. I hope you will consider stripping the paint from the brick to expose it and soften the sound, and to lower the elevation of the art, please <3 Lastly, the price of the food is too low. I wish I could add an additional tip (for chef and for staff separately and with a note that it’s optional as not to outrage the rest of your customers) in addition to the price and tip already included. I don’t often want to do this, but you truly mastered you cuisine and deserve the praise. Well done! I look forward to my next visit.

    Four of us ate at Trestle recently and commented on how fresh and innovative the food is! We enjoyed a sweet pea and burrata salad, simply yet exquisitely prepared sole, and a delectable bay leaf custard. Not your usual fare. The space is intimate and cozy with contemporary art on the walls and a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers in the middle of the room. The wait staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We are all looking forward to returning. The prix fixe menu changes often.

    Amazing food and service! The prix fixe menu offered a wide range of options with two choices for each course - the portions were just right, so by the end of the meal we were full but not stuffed. The wines were very pricey- so two bottles made up almost half the bill. The atmosphere was cizy, and so it eas also noisy, though not impossible to have a conversation. I hope to come back soon and try the next set of courses!

    Great experience at Trestle for SF Restaurant Week 2022. The cauliflower soup, broccoli orecchiette, and Mt. Lassen trout (and the maitake confit) were delicious. The pan seared bistro steak was a bit tough/chewy - not recommended. Desserts (Trestle's take on a chocolate cream "pie" and bay laurel custard) were both good. Service was mostly good, felt a bit rushed at times, but we were the last party seated at 9pm so understandably they're at the end of a long day.

    Me and one of my coworkers came to Trestle for SF Restaurant Week, and the four course tasting menu was so fresh and tasty! We ordered salad as the starter, shared the broccoli orecchiette pasta course, had the Lassen trout as the main, and the bay laurel pudding for dessert. The waitstaff were attentive and even gave us a voucher for a free pasta on our next visit!
