Truffles - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews

We had a disappointing experience at Truffles. We have been there before and enjoyed it. However, our recent experience has convinced us not to return. The service was poor. The waiter continually confused our order and was never around to fix it. He was rarely around our table at all. And, they gave us a spoon to use with a cheese plate. The food itself was not what we had experienced in the past, particularly the trout that was very over cooked. Just not very good overall.

Truffles has an excellent, seasonal menu. Their wine list is beyond impressive, and the Sommelier always provides outstanding recommendations. Matt has taken care of us several times, and the service is always remarkable. The bar is also a great place for both a before and after dinner drink, and the bartenders also provide exceptional service. I would highly recommend Truffles; it is one of our favorite local restaurants.

Fantastic dining experience! Service outstanding, food was delicious. The lobster roll took me back to my time in New England. The steak was perfect. The wine list was excellent, and had a large number of high quality wine by the glass options.

I always love Truffles. Great food and amazing service always. Love the warm cozy feel of the place. T here is always a good amount of other people dining so that the place feels busy and bustling, but the noise level is always quiet to moderate. I LOVE that about this place. Too many restaurants today are decorated so modern and it makes it hard for anyone to hear. I am very sensitive to noise and appreciate a delicious, quiet meal!

I went to lunch with a client on a Thursday, and it was like we had a private club setting. Perfection. Exceptional service, other tables were seated far enough apart for added privacy, and the food is great, too. I will definitely be back more frequently for lunch appointments.

We had a delightful lunch. Butternut squash
Soup, truffle risotto, and steak salad. Every dish prepared well, served at the right temperature. We had an interesting bottle of red wine that pared well with our steak.

We totally enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Truffles-St Louis tonight. The drinks and wine were very good. The bbq shrimp appetizer was outstanding. The braised meatball appetizer was very delicious. The entrees selected by the four of us were halibut and filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was also outstanding as it was appropriately attentive but not to be intrusive. The desserts were wonderful too.
Highly recommended for food and service.
It was a great evening with wonderful food and service.

Service and wait staff was exceptional. Ambiance was was very good. We were disappointed in cost of food vs value recd. outstanding was the risotto with mushrooms and truffles. Lettuce wedge salad not what we expected as we are used to the blue cheese, bacon variety. Shirt rib special was ok but the sauce was off putting. Halibut was good. Most disappointing was the bananas foster dessert. We have this in New Orleans often and fix at home. This was not fixed at table and the ice cream was half melted in the soupy brown sugar and ? Sauce.

I enjoyed the white table cloth ambience and service right away. I met a friend for lunch and we were treated promptly with excellent and unrushed service. It is a perfect restaurant to enjoy quiet conversation in a lovely restaurant. The truffle risotto was outstanding...the best I ever ate. I can't wait to go back again.
This was disappointing .
I've been to Truffles before and love the food. But this time, the experience was so poor I don't know that I'll go back even for the food. When I booked my reservation, I specifically looked for a restaurant that had reservations for 10p or later as I knew we'd be coming from a show & wanted a place where the kitchen was still open. Truffles was one of those. However, when we arrived, they told us they had to put the table together - a bit surprising since few people were in the restaurant. No sooner had we sat down then the waiter came by & didn't ask for drink orders, but asked if we were ready to order as the kitchen wanted him to get the order in as they were closing. While the food was good (although my friend said her risotto was too salty to finish), the service kept going downhill. We felt very rushed, had to ask for things & were never asked if we wanted dessert nor was a thank you for dining with us said when the checks were brought. It seemed like the server had seldom, if ever, waited on tables & didn't seem to have any support as all staff was gone when we left. We went into the bar after dinner & staff there was friendly and helpful - but I'm not sure I'll try the dining room again. It left a really bad taste in my mouth. If you don't want late reservations, then don't make them available. I'd made my reservation far enough in advance that if it was an error, someone had plenty of time to reach out to me to notify me. Very disappointing.
