2 Steps forward, 1 step back. You know how there are certain restaurants that go the extra mile and seem like this business is their lifelong calling? Well, unfortunately this is not the 1. In fact, ironically, those places often go out of business, but I digress. This is not 1 of those places. It has potential. The thin, tall sundress woman who greeted us seemed like she was up for the challenge. The menu is rather thin and my dinner guest said that their steak was only okay and certainly not worth the inflated price. I asked for a taste of avocado with my dish. The big boys typically give this to you as a courtesy or an obligatory $1. Benjamin's whopping $4 took my meal up to the next price bracket. I liked the diversity of the 2 light skinned minority waitresses. When I complimented the Manager on her kimono, she practically lectured me on how it was not. When I asked the waitress for an orange slice, in addition to not having any she got too familiar asking me what I needed it for. What ever happen to the customer is always right, even if my fashion jeopardy was slightly off. I actually wanted to like this place more for the several 2 steps forward, but I would be disingenuous to not warn people of the several 1 steps back. I read both the favorable and unfavorable reviews of the restaurant on this site. I figured I’d pay them the solid of letting them know of the site so one of them could perhaps write a response to any unfavorable reviews that were just miscommunications. The male manager who answered said he would get the female manager that I described only to return as if screening her calls. He was otherwise very polite cordial and professional. When I suggested that someone in his camp might want to write retorts to negative messages posted about the restaurant, he was not interested. Oh well.

I have been a long time customer of both companies (BMG ..music & Columbia House ..movies). I feel bad for these few people who feel like they got a "raw deal." However, did they take the time to read NOT the super-fine print...BUT the "regular small" print?? Or the "terms of the "DEAL"?? NO OBVIOUSLY NOT!! They were too busy trying to get something for NOTHING..wake up...IT ...Life..doesn't "work" that way!! And as far as the "director's selections..and the "paper-billing"...AGAIN WAKE UP YOU OBVIOUSLY HAD A PC (computer) TO WRITE YOUR "REVIEW," SO WHY DIDN'T YOU BOTHER TO SIGN UP FOR "PAPERLESS-BILLING"???? Would it have been REALLLY TOO MUCH WORK TO SIGN UP FOR PAPERLESS-BILLING and AUTO-EMAILS TO EASILY RESPOND TO THE "director's selection"???? REAL SIMPLE TO click: "no thank to this title or any of the alternatives!!!!!" So be quiet and stop crying about your lack of willingness to do YOUR part!!!! Be an adult and do what you're suppose to do!..READ ALL TERMS OF AGREEMENT..DON'T JUST SAY "OK" AND THEN EXPECT TO GET OUT OF IT CAUSE YOU DIDN'T HOLD UP YOUR END OF THE AGREEMENT!....because you wouldn't read the small print!!!!!!!!!!!
As seasoned biochemistry researchers from Rockefeller University just across the water, our MD-PhD have frequented the Trellis often during the 2009-2010 season. Some of us live near Cornell Medical School near Rockefeller University; others live in new buildings on Main Street on Roosevelt Island, just down the road from the Trellis. Consistently, we've found delicious food, great live jazz, and a clean and bright bistro where chefs can cook anything you want, whether light, continental, or fast food. The menu has a nice variety of Italian dishes and Greek salads, soups, fish, meat, pastas and desserts. Service has always been excellent. Open 7 days, 5AM-11PM.
