Nice upscale atmosphere. Beautiful tables with brand new looking linens.
Your choice to dine on the upstairs patio or to dine indoors downstairs. The food was excellent. Portion size is ample but not overwhelming. 3 of 4 employees that served our table were good. Unfortunately, our main waitress was argumentative. She just didn't seem to want to be there. She parroted back the order in a sequence that doesn't match the menu and then chastised us for not recognizing it. I ordered a soda three times because they forgot twice and finally had to prevail upon the bus boy. They didn't seem busy. I asked for a box for the leftovers and I was told I didn't need it yet. Apparently the customer is not always right. The website offered a generous 20% discount for paying with AM EX, (which they honored) but you won't get it unless you ask for it. Simply paying with AM EX won't get you there.
It's worth another try on a different night.

Outstanding Restaurant

We just returned from Stanford's Admit Weekend where we dined at Trellis on each of the four nights of our stay. The first night we ate at Trellis because it was our favorite restaurant from our first visit to Stanford. We continued to dine each evening at Trellis as we could not imagine finding a better dining experience.
Every course of every meal that we and our guests had at Trellis was excellent. The prices were more than reasonaable including the wine. The owner, Kurt, knew many of his customers and treated everyone as special. It was fun to watch Kurt expertly play the crowd and attend to his customers that he so obviously values.
If you want exceptionally prepared food, served with pride at reasonable prices and to be treated like ""royalty"", then Trellis is the restaurant for you.

good Italian in Menlo Park

You might not be able to tell just from the name, but Trellis is pretty much an Italian restaurant. I got the bucatini with pancetta, which was good and satisfying (but not spectacular). Everything they serve you will be a good portion (I had leftovers). The pasta dishes are $11-16, mostly around $12.

I was a single diner when I went and the staff is good to single diners. My server was professional and attentive but not overbearing. When he brought me the bill, he said, ""We don't close until 10, so take your time if you want to read some more."" It was only 8:15.

Trellis is a good neighborhood standby. The food is nothing to go out of your way for, but it's good enough.

Best in Menlo Park

I live in Menlo Park and think this is the best restaurant we have in this City. The banquet room seats 120 people, has its own bar, large windows, a huge balcony and is ideal for large parties, unlike the claustrophobic rooms other restaurants offer. I have dined at the other restaurants in Menlo Park and found the service to be lacking and the prices to be outrageous. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to be treated like royalty while enjoying wonderful food.
