Under the direction of restauranteur Nesip Ozgu, Trapeze cuisine has been re-interpreted for the California lifestyle with nuances of Italian and Mediterranean touch. The menu infuses seasonal, fresh local produce in an extensive array of small plates. Casual settings include a dining hall, a private salon and an elegant cocktail bar. Indulge in the new flavor of sophistication at Trapeze Restaurant in Burlingame, where culinary excellence emanates from every bite.


The vibe: Owner Nes, short for Nesip, has put together a dream of a cocktail program in the heart of Burlingame, devising a menu that combines their original creations with recreations of vintage cocktails and others made by top-shelf bartenders around the country.
Nes has re-invented that rarefied atmosphere at the Trapeze Restaurant and established very diverse and committed following.

The Bar
people love our food
see what they say

This is a great local spot!! Fresh food and always great company! The hosts and the staff always make you feel right at home. It’s our go-to spot for a good meal and a great time! Highly recommend it for a casual dinner or date night!!

We absolutely love this place. Been going here for years. Had Anniversary parties, birthday parties, party parties and just lunch sometimes. Owners are the best and everyone working as a team are like family. Always treated better than deserved. Definitely a place to go.

Well, I’ll start with the two of our favorite people Nesip and Jacob whom we have come to love!! We have gotten to know them well for several years now and have built a special brotherly bond with them. Trapeze is our favorite place to come for a great dinner, appetizers, or a cocktail at the bar!! Their hospitality is to be commended, they treat everyone as if part of the family!! Always greeting guests at the door, always addressing them by name, and recalling their cocktail of choice!!
