Truffles - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
The service and wine list at Truffles are second to none. Our server had only been with the restaurant for three weeks...but you never would have known. He was knowledgeable, appropriately attentive, and provided excellent guidance. The wine list included options from even the most obscure regions. While I didn't love my entree (a special), the others at my table were pleased with their meals.
I would give Truffles an overall great rating, except for one incident. Great food. Wait staff was excellent. The problem was, unfortunately, our first contact. We made a reservation well in advance. We got to the restaurant and we were seated right away. But ... for an anniversary dinner, the hostess sat us at the absolute worst table in the restaurant. Literally the only table in the doorway to the kitchen and next to the wait station. Completely unacceptable. And absolutely no reason for it. Restaurant was never more than 2/3 full the entire night. And it was a 4 top for a party of 2! Fortunately, our waiter (I wish I could remember his name!) immediately offered to seat us at another table. So no harm and the rest of the meal was great. But there is really no excuse for the hostess. Completely thoughtless.
It was our second time here and unfortunately it was like most sequels...disappointing. We loved our first visit. This time we went for Mother's Day dinner (Sat night before). Food was great as it was before. The hostess and our server were clueless with regards to customer service. I must say, their clientele is made up of two distinct pretentious categories...The gaudy jeweled elders or their trust fund babies. But if that's your thing...hanging around ostentatious people, this is you place. My wife and I couldn't get out of there quick enough.
We have been extremely impressed with Truffles of late. On this evening we enjoyed a terrific beet salad and a wedge salad. The steaks we ordered were some of the most perfectly cooked and flavorful steaks I have ever eaten. I cannot wait to get back to TRUFFLES for my next meal!
Really great experience and food and service. The hat trick of all Ladue restaurants! Had the HANGER STEAK. A rarity on menus because it's hard to make right but it was perfect. Trout good. Salmon good. Soup excellent. Port wine 😔 not so good. Back In Two weeks.
This is such a consistently great restaurant operation.
Some might find the ambience too austere, but since it is located in Ladue its clientele appreciate the traditional decor.
The only blip in service was the front desk staff not offering to check our coats upon arrival. Very surprising at this price point.
We always enjoy the menu here. Today we tried a Halibut special. The fish was wrapped in grape leaves and served atop tabbouleh salad. At first we were surprised the salad was not warm, but after several bites agreed tabbouleh is never warm and it all worked together wonderfully.
One guest ordered trout and had the buratta appetizer.
She felt the onion pepper sauté under her cheese app didn't work and that the same onion mixture was under her trout.
Our server Ryan was fantastic! Attentive and friendly, a great combination.
I went to Truffles twice: once for lunch the previous week and once for dinner. I had the onion soup for lunch and the caeser salad. The slad was drowning in dressing even though I asked for light dressing. And the soup tasted like the onions had been burned, not carmelized but burned. Dinner, however, was a very good experience. There were four of us and we had ribs, steak, and duck. which were all beautiful and tasty. My burrata salad tasted as if it had been sitting in the frig all day because the outside of the usual soft cheese was hardened and difficult to cut. But the wine and the service and the food were all excellent.
