I have been to the Trellis several times, and I have never had any problems with long waits for food or rude servers. My husband and I love going to the Trellis for dessert and coffee, but we have eaten dinner there a number of times as well. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff and servers are friendly, professional, and helpful. Although, the food is a bit pricey, it is well worth it! Definitely try Death by Chocolate if you're getting a dessert!

My daughter had planned my birthday dinner --4 adults and a 3, 6 and 7 year old. We had reservations at 5:45 but no entrees nearly two hours later! That is tooooooo long and we had not seen our waitress in about an hour--no telling us what had happened, no refilling our bread basket etc. I can not comment on the food as I had none! Two people did have appatizers but the other five had no food. Then the waitress was argumenitive as one person had gone to the bathroom so it was our fault. We left. Makes me mad to even think that this could be a top resturant in some peoples eyes. They must be the owners relatives.

My birthday dinner was to be here and my daughter had heard about it and made reservations at 5:45. There were 4 adults and a 3, 6 and7 year old. To make a long story short in almost two hours we had not entrees. We had not seen the waitress in about an hour but when we decieded to leave(it is not easy to entertain a three year old when there is not even an offer of more bread) the waitress appeared and instead of asking what she could do or tell us what the problem was she was ugly and said it was our fault as one person had gone to the restroom. I wish I had read the reviews on other sites before I had gone as this seems to be what happens there. Needless to say we were mad and dissapointed. The 3 year old keeps saying I did not have my birthday as there was no cake!

Pros: Can not think of any

Cons: Too numerous to list

We ate lunch at the Trellis Restaurant over Veterans Day weekend, mainly because it was the only one it town with no line. The service was slow and the food only so-so. The party at the table across from us (at least 6 people) all had something wrong with their orders, such as entree was cold or made wrong. Maybe we caught them on a bad day but we wouldn't go back.

I am disheartened to read the other reviews. My husband and I think have great memories of this restaurant. Now, mind you, my more memorable experiences there have not been during the peak tourist seasons. The best times are early Spring and fall.

We absolutely love the quail and the rabbit here. The five course meal is a great deal (around $25) and you get a nice variety. This restaurant does depend on your waitstaff. We have had average waiters who didn't know much, and other times, waiters who knew what wines to pair and were very personable.

Ask lots of questions. Make reservations. Talk to the staff and indicate your expectations. That's the only thing I could suggest to the other reviewers. We've have wonderful times there.

Pros: Amazing Modern atmosphere-- get out of the Tavern-feel for a while, Excellent Food

Cons: Sometimes Waitstaff not as knowledgable as should be

Service was decent, but everything else about this restaurant left much to be desired. To be fair, I can't evaluted their dinner menu since I've only had lunch here, but both times I've gone, the food was truly bad and as one of the nicer restaurants in the area, I was sorely disappointed, particularly given the price tag. My salad looked like something that should be served up in a public school cafeteria. Also, perplexingly the management apparently permits owners of the boutique next door to interrupt diner's lunch to advertise their spiel and pass out discount cards. TACKY.

From appetizer to main course to coffee, the food was terrible. The salad dressing tasted like vinegar. The soup was cold. The main courses came out looking as if they had been pre-prepared and sitting there for hours. The taste was at best ok. Couldn't wait for the famous death by chocolate cake with a good cup of coffee. The cake was good, but nothing memorable. The coffee tasted like dirty dish water or that the coffee beans had been recycled several times. We told our waiter that our food was cold when he asked how our meals were. His response was that he would tell the kitchen. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Don't believe the hype. The dessert is not worth struggling through the dinner for.

When visiting nearby Williamsburg with my parents, we dined at The Trellis. It really is a world-class restaurant. In fact, it was started by renowned chef Marcel Desaulnier.

There is a variety of fare available at The Trellis, and one can dine inside or outside ion the patio under the shelter of an umbrella. The restaurant is located in the heart of hstoric Williamsburg, so there is plenty of ambiance.

As for food, there is a wide selection of salads, sandwiches, quiche (which they call cheesecake), seafood, and sandwiches. There is also a terrific dessert menu with homemade icecream and sorbets. Divine!

I dined on a roast turkey sandwich and a salad. The sandwich was excellent. The turkey was fresh and tender, and it was topped with fresh tomatoes and lettuce. The salad was crisp and fresh. For dessert I had mango sorbet, which was most excellent! It was tangy and sweet, as it was made with fresh mangoes.

Selections vary daily, and the food is not at all expensive. Prices are moderate.

I would highly recommend this great restaurant!
