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 night we feature a changing 3 course pre fixe menu with choices on each course for $38/person. We will have an optional additional pasta course for $10/person.


Our menu is posted nightly by midnight for the following day. View the menu at www.trestlesf.com

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

Specials

Valentine's Day Special Menus & More

Trestle will be featuring a special 4 course Valentine's Day menu on February 14th for $85/person. We will not be featuring our traditional menu offerings that evening. Please ensure to leave a valid email and we will send a copy of the menu to confirm. It is also available to view on our homepage

We had to stand for 20 minutes even though we had a reservation so, a little bummed out. Good was great for the price though!

I make it a point to dine at Trestle every year when I attend the Winter Fancy Food Show, it's one of my "must-go" spots. It's a small room, comfy and intimate. The service is always friendly and well-informed, and the food is beautifully executed. The prix-fixe menu never seems limiting, as there are always appealing options for me. Be sure to add on the pasta course, it's invariably scrumptious; it makes a perfect shared dish between your starters and main courses. And also be sure to make a reservation, otherwise you'll be deeply disappointed at not being able to share in the fun.

Very good food always done very well and imaginatively! I ate here for the third time in four months and all times were great. I like the fixed price approach and limited menu. This approach results in good, creative dishes delivered timely without lots of decisions. The staff is engaging and happy. Highly recommend for good American fusion flavor at a very competitive price.

This was my greatest experience in SF, so I came twice for a friendly dinner and for a business one, and my guests where so happy. The wines selection is so very fine and very reasonable  prices.
Finally, the service is delicate and personalized.

Very well conceived restaurant. The fixed menu limits choice, but also allows each dish to be terrific. Also, since it is a multicourse menu, each course is reasonably sized. Highly recommend it.

Loved the food, the wait staff need improvement. Wine glass was half full and they brought check without asking if we'd like another glass. Then grabbed wine glasses and napkins after bill was paid. Odd ending to a great meal.

Delicious food at a good value, fun, and lovely service, but much too loud for normal conversation. And wish they had a bar where we could wait for our table, or at least a bit more space inside for waiting. If it were raining, we would have been quite uncomfortable waiting outside.

Duck salad was good, more like a duck croquette. Too salty and I usually like salty...the pasta courses for both of us, were some of the best ever. Gnocchi and a lobster spaghetti. The spaghetti itself, was al dente perfection and is the best I have ever eaten- ever!
Chestnut soup amazing. Strip steak cooked rare and very good. Scallops a bit soft all over for my liking- and the accompanying hard purple cauliflower had no flavor. Desserts both just ok. This was NYE so for 100 each, not a value. But enjoyable.
The normal pricing would make this an amazing place.
We are from Philadelphia and didn’t find the noise level bad at all. The waiter was very good, and pleasant. I liked the decor, and black brick. I did not feel rushed at all.
I would go back.

The food is innovative, and oh so tasty, but also healthy. The service was very attentive, but not overbearing. It is a little loud, but we were seated next to a party of 6; so, that accounted for some of the elevated noise level.

My husband and I were really looking forward to dining here because our friend gave it such high reviews. However, we were so disappointed.

Appetizer | Tuna Tataki salad - The portion was great, but it was SO SALTY! A diner sitting next to us sent hers back and asked for no salt. We should’ve done the same.

Entree | Salmon & Braised Beef Short Ribs - The salmon was fine, but didn’t have much flavor. My husband’s short ribs were extremely dry and he didn’t even finish it. The server asked if he wanted a plate of the salmon instead, so I have to say that was very nice of them.

Dessert | Double Fudge Cake & Japanese Cheesecake - Both desserts were good, but nothing special. The desserts were the best part of the meal.

Overall, I would not recommend Trestle to anyone. My husband and I actually went to another restaurant afterwards and had a second dinner.

This is a small cozy quaint restaurant, perfect for low key celebrations. This was our second time there and we went back since the first time their food was truly outstanding. I am not sure what has changed over the last year or if we were chasing the dragon, or if the chef was having a bad day, but we felt like the food was average this time around. I would still give the place a try since their service and price makes it totally worth the buck !
