Burlingame has so many choices for dinner, and we decided to try Trapeze. It is easy to miss as the storefront can fade into the background with so many other retail shops around. I must say that the service was great, and the food was...More

I booked Trapeze for a business function. We hold several of these events around the country every year, and we always take our high-end clients to dinner. This was, by far, the worst place we've ever held our dinner. They placed us in the very...More

Hi- There is no dress code. I saw folks in casual clothes like jeans and then others in more dressy options. I'm not sure about gluten free options but I'm sure if you call they can let you know. It's a nice place.
