My husband, baby girl and I stopped in one freezing but brilliantly sunny November day after taking in the galleries. The hostess was warm and eager to seat us in the front corner banquette which was exactly what I wished for.. My 6 month old sat and played happily on the banquette, taking in the view through both full length windows as we basked in the warmth of the setting sun. My husband had a fantastic Austrian beer as I enjoyed a lovely Peppermint tea served in the pot. We shared the pureed cauliflower and escargot soup (with a touch of truffle oil, I believe) and a micro greens with arugula salad that featured a perfect combination of fresh dill, fennel, goat cheese and toasted almond slivers in a simple balsamic vinaigrette. It was, hands down, the best salad I ever had. Simple, fresh and perfectly balanced. We later went to a fantastic Puerto Rican food spot near by. These two places are where we'll ever have to go on future trips to the galleries. Bravo!

the food is good. it's a nice restaurant. i don't expect much more. it was not a very busy crowd. most tables inside were empty. we sat in the garden. no one came by to set the table or offer water for at least 15 minutes. the hostess seemed to be our waitress. perhaps she was upset with the waiters, i have no idea, but she was very icy and made a beautiful day little less pleasant for an hour. not worth it. better and more dependable places nearby - red cat, bottino, cookshop, la luncheonette.

We were hoping Trestle, with its great patio, would be our new neighborhood spot. But the food was average, especially given the price, and the service was frosty when our server deigned to come by on a slow Monday night. Chicken: dry, edible but bland. Halibut: not terrible, but pretty tasteless. Brussels sprouts: bland, undercooked, cold. Salad with bacon: tasty. Drinks: they were good, but came verrryy slowly. Overpriced+bad service+mediocre food...hopefully someone new will take over that patio soon.

I ate at Trestle a few nights ago; my only regret is not having been hungrier upon arrival. The only thing I ordered was a bottle of Barbera and a roasted chicken with winter greens in broth; my friend was not hungry and contented herself with drinking all the wine, as usual. The food was outstanding; ingredients perfectly balanced, portion of appropriate size. It was just enough to leave me wanting more. Thank you.

Planned a date here with my fiance. I made a reservation (and I'm glad I did) because we showed up and the place was PACKED. Which made it even cooler that they were able to accomodate us and seat us right away even though we showed up early. I would have been glad to eat inside because the decor was mellow, hip, and low lit, but we were brought out to the slick little garden out back which was equally as nice, if not nicer. We were treated to friendly and attentive service. Wine and cheese and cured meats...all were very good. Steak and Salmon were also excellent. And the Pizokel were awesome and we spent most of the rest of the evening arguing whether or not it was potato we were eating. I'm no expert on food but I know when I drop over $100 on two people, I have expectations. This place was worth the money.

Great service from friendly people with no problems when I ate in its first week of opening. I've also gone back several times and is great for those post Thursday night Chelsea art gallery events on the next few blocks. The bib lettuce buttermilk salad is great and the beer chocolate souffle slightly intoxicates the tongue.
