Truffles - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews

Service was disappointing for such an upscale place. Very slow at the start to attend to us. Poorly written menu options caused disappointment. This is partly the management's fault, but an experienced server would know to explain how certain orders cancel out other parts of the menu that were promised. And would have made things right without sticking us for another charge-- or at least warned us that making things right would generate another charge...that was sleazy.
The food is very good.
This is the second time that I have been ...
This is the second time that I have been at Truffles recently and I was VERY impressed. They menu has a Louisiana flare to it with gumbo, Cajun spices on dishes and trout almandine. That being said, I chose a steak and this prime New York strip was amazing. It was a great cut of beef, perfectly cooked to seal in all of the natural flavor. A friend of mine got the ribeye and was equally impressed.

This was our second time at Truffles. We really like the "classic steakhouse" feel and the crab cakes and lobster roll are wonderful. We also had the duck ravioli special - wonderfully gamey paired with an Oregon pinot.

I normally wouldn't write a review on a place after only one experience but this place was outstanding. Had an anniversary dinner here and the place was cozy but lively with locals as well. The meal was perfect. I had a filet that was outstanding and my wife had the duck which she described as the best she's ever had. We explored the bar area after dinner where we enjoyed the sounds of a fantastic 4 pc. Jazz set that was fantastic. A wonderful and memorable evening... Thank You Truffles!

Service by the waiter,Scott M, was poor. Never brought a second beer that was ordered but charged for it. When we said we hadn't received it, he asked us if we were sure. Very rude. The wait staff that brought the food out was very good. Scott ruined our 42nd anniversary dinner.

10 picky ladies out for dinner. Everyone wanted different drinks, wine-food. The timing and the presentation is always perfect. And they have the most delicious gourmet burger in St.Louis. Steaks, salads. French fries are all outstanding!
The service is always excellent as well.
Food was excellent but service was lacki ...
Food was excellent but service was lacking on this visit. Server tried very hard to please, but either lack of training or understanding what goes into great service caused that to be noticeable. Starters were all good, except the steak tartare was on the dry side. And that despite supposedly having an egg on top that I never saw. Pork chop was out of the world good and my wife could not finish it. One friend and I had both had duck and other friend had snapper and all raved about the quality of the dinner. Orders were all wrong with sides from one on the plate of another. Three meals had to go back, but were brought back quickly with correct sides. Wine pouring was poorly done, with pours that were too tall (we had to instruct waiter how to pour wine) and then lack of pouring (we just poured ourselves). Never offered dessert and had to ask.
Have had many excellent meals at Truffles and will return for the normal great food and service that usually accompanies it.

Had not been to Truffles for dinner in ages, even though it's so close to us. Boys had the gumbo first, which is great. I had the petit filet with a mix of fresh baby arugula lemon and shaved Pecorino. Perfectly cooked and just what I wanted. Shared bananas foster for dessert, which was terrific. Great wine list. Servers nicely attentive. The bar scene is very busy, but back in the restaurant you wouldn't know it, so you can have a nice dinner for 4 without shouting at each other. Will go back sooner rather than later.

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.
