Went out with my father and
Went out with my father and a friend for my birthday. The service was superb and the food was excellent. The service staff was very attentive and there to provide everything we needed. My starter was the calamari and was the best calamari I’ve had to date. For my entrée I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. Even the sides were good, especially the twice baked potato. Definitely recommend, especially for a quiet romantic dinner or special occasion.

Have always had very good
Have always had very good food & service at Truffles. It's great for social or business lunch. Servers are well trained - attentive but not overly so. Everything from the delicious fresh bread to menu with enough variety but not too much, well planned and makes for an enjoyable time.

Overall a very good meal. Haven't been to truffles for quite some time. Thought the new menu was very good. Still has a great wine list.

A great place.
It was my first time visiting Truffles, and it will definitely not be my last! I was recommended by a friend whom often travels to St. Louis, so I decided to do the same on my first visit to the area. I had originally planned to dine in with a co-worker, but after some last minute conflicting schedules, I ended up going alone. I was greeted by a friendly hostess and was explained the great happy hour specials in the bar... where I ultimately ended up. Great bar service, delicious food at affordable pricing, and good friendly crowd. Loved the entire experience.

Celebrating a college graduation, we were treated exceptionally well. The service was excellent, and the dining room is stunning. The food was really good. Most of us chose the steaks, and no one was disappointed. My favorite part of the meal was the appetizer of wild mushroom risotto with truffles. It was delicious. I'm still thinking about it two days later. We will definitely be returning.

Menu is focused on a moderate number of items, very well done. Good choices.
Wine list is large, and includes a number of items not usually found in St. Louis. The wine bar is also a plus.
Wait staff always first rate.

Escargot and stiffed mushroom
Escargot and stiffed mushroom appetizer was savory, garlicky and delicious. Lamb meatballs were down home. However, there was absolutely no hint of mint as promised. Dover sole was enough for two; lovely preparation. Don't miss the truffle twice baked potato- ethereal .

Great food and a nice quiet atmosphere. We both had the steak and it was cooked as requested. They also brought out an amuse bouche that was a nice touch. Would highly recommend.

Quiet Charming Gourmet Restaurant
Our first time at Truffles. Met by a gracious hostess, service throughout the dining experience was perfect. Home baked WARM bread served prior to a candy striped beet and goat cheese salad paired with an appetizer of season morels potato gnocci with shaved black truffles. Exquisite. Also served with a chilled vegetable gazpacho drink that was wonderful. Dinner for me was seared veal medallions with king crab. My wife had the salmon on a bed of roasted tomatoes and watermelon balls. OMG! Desert was a chocolate ooie gooie butter cake that was to die for. Though prices were high, total bill was $160, we loved the experience and would definitely go back.

Thank you OpenTable - I was entertaining a client and found Truffles online with you and it was a fantastic experience and fantastic food.

Dining room closed for lunch
Dining room closed for lunch in summer. Sitting in the bar was awful ! Uncomfortable, Ugly. Horrible televisions on.

Clients loved their lunch and so did I. Great price point considering the outstanding quality of the food and service. Bar seating was sunny and inviting. I'll have to come back for dinner... the menu looks amazing. Highly recommended.

Best Food in STL
The food at Truffles is absolutely incredible. I highly recommend the BBQ Shrimp or the Caesar Salad for starters. I had the duck for my entree and let me tell you, it was the best duck I have ever had. My fiancée had the filet mignon which was like butter. Everything was perfect!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best in STL!
Quality of food and service easily surpasses anything else in Saint Louis. My friend had a duck while I enjoyed a daily special Ramen! It was the best duck she ever had and Ramen was nothing short of spectacular and for only $18.00 a great deal. Let's not forget the wine list which is more like a wine Bible. We are big fans and will be back for more and often.

Good & Expensive
This place draws a mostly local, older, wealthy crowd. Pretty dining room with old-world decor. Excellent service. When I had difficulty choosing a wine the general manager - trained as a sommelier - took it as a personal challenge to find something I'd like and was most generous with his wine and his time. Smoked duck entree was delicious. Unique, beautifully prepared, sauced with a heavy hand so there was plenty to last the whole portion. Scallops were among the best ever, caramelized outside and tender inside. Too full for dessert!

Continues to impress
Came back for more and left as impressed as ever. We ventured into Chef's tasting with wine pairing this time. 4 course menu was amazing and wine pairings nothing short of stunning. We gained appreciation for some Missouri wines while discovering some obscure European varietals (Bracoule, Duras, pettite Arvine, anyone?). Service is so smooth and unassuming. May I say, this is the most comfortable and dare I say "casual" of all fine dining restaurants I have ever been to. Our new STL favorite.

Everything was outstanding. The roast duckling is among the best that I've had.

Had a house salad and a Scorpion Fish for the first time. Amazing! Typical Truffles, some truly exotic stuff mixed with delicious classics. Also, the band at the bar was amazing. Coming back next week for more. Keep it going, Truffles!

Not in a Rush
We particularly appreciate that the wait staff did not remove the plates of the first person who finished any given course until the second person had also finished.

We celebrated our anniversary. Top notch service and delicious food. It was a busy night, yet our dinner was flawless. We were welcomed with some champagne and our server was very attentive and informative. We'll be back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just can’t decide which was better, the food or the service. We had a warm reception and our waitress was bright, cheery, and attentive. The house salad is among the best I’ve ever had and the gumbo was amazing. I will defiantly be back!

Dined this past weekend. Absolutely loved everything about the restaurant, food and the service. I am already thinking about going back. Loved the Salmon dish and loved, loved, loved the bread pudding dessert. This place is a must try!!!!!!

Truffles is terrific.
Kudos to Truffles for always putting out a top product. Thanks to the Cella family for hanging in there and hanging on to their no compromise efforts for top service and food. Beside always great gourmet food they also have e best burger and fries in town.
One of e best wine lists and mixed drinks by Masterman Duke make the bar a very happening scene.
We've been going there since they've been open and have never been disappointed. Their new entry on the menu, half a duck, replaces Balabans as the best duck in town. The crayfish wedge sale is not to be missed. The bone in ribeye is the best piece of meat you can get east of Annie Gunns.mm

This was our first visit, and we will definitely be going again. The truffle rissoto appetizer is a must try.

Love Truffles for lunch and our first dinner experience was amazing. Both the food and the service was top notch. Our server was knowledgeable, relaxed, and attentive. The food was excellent, perfectly grilled steak and the Dover sole was out of this world. After dinner we moved to the bar because they had live music! It was so much fun that we skipped the movie. I can’t wait till our next visit!

Fantastic ambiance. Great service. Excellent food. On par with some excellent NYC restaurants, and yet at a more reasonable price.

Outstanding wine list
We dined with friends who are wine experts and they claimed it was one of the most fantastic wine lists they had ever scene. The filet, the trout, the duck, and the sweetbreads were all outstanding and so were the atmosphere and service. A real gem!
