    I have lived in St Louis now for 9 years and somehow have never found my way to Truffles. What a great restaurant - the food, service, wine list...all fantastic. We had a wonderful time and will be adding it to our top choices of restaurants for out of town guests, business dinners, date night, etc. Keep up the great work Truffles staff and management.

    I took my family to Truffles this past weekend for the first time. We're foodies with 25+ years of experience in the restaurant and catering business, so I'd say we're a little more critical when it comes to service and food than the average family is. Everything about our experience at Truffles was absolutely PERFECT: service, food, atmosphere, & wine. Our server, Brian, was extremely knowledgeable about their extensive wine list and remained very attentive to our table, despite having a full dining room that night. Thank you so much for providing us with an unforgettable night!

    ...end everything else we may add. The quality of meat is out of this world and seafood is exceptional. We had a "butchery board" and beef tartar to start with. Both were excellent. House salad was a big surprise as we ordered it as an intermezzo yet it proved to be a credible dish on it's own. Finally the akaushi ribeye was worth the high price as it melted in your mouth and the local trout with chunks of crab meat on top was the best fish my girlfriend ever had. We wish the dessert menu was more elaborate but the bread pudding was to die for. Again, the wine list is something to be seen. Simply stunning!

    Greatest wine list in Saint Louis coupled with outstanding food and knowledgeable staff. Go for duck, hanger, or trout. House salad is amazing and this time their home made butchery board from their new Butchery shop next door got our attention. Place is getting busier every time we come, so the word must be out...no more quiet dinners here. It was packed!

    Truffles is truly special. From the moment we walked in on a really busy night we were greeted with smiles and enthusiasm. The food is on another level, in Saint Louis terms and the wine list is simply put ridiculous! I felt bad for bringing our own bottle after I saw the wine book with over 60 pages, written in a way to both, educate and help navigate. Service is my favorite part as the staff is very easy going yet informative and meticulous in execution. It's just a fun place to "wine and dine"...We will be back for more this holiday season.

    From the moment we walked in the door we were treated as if we were the only patrons in the restaurant! Our server was extremely attentive & helpful with suggestions. Our food was delicious, we began with mussels & risotto, both rich and flavorful and prepared masterfully. Entrees were duck breast & Louisiana redfish, each was exceptional, juicy & a wonderful sized portion. The savory bread pudding accompanying duck was out of this world! Cookies and truffles for dessert. Some of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever eaten! 4 truffles to an order, the maple salted caramel truffle: divine, a great paring of flavors. I liked the quite atmosphere and the quality service. I'm really looking forward to eating here again soon!

    We were looking for a place for our anniversary and decided to try truffles based on reviews. It did not disappoint! The menu want huge which was pretty nice. I feel like their menu may be seasonal, but I am not sure...regardless the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was top notch. Def worth trying! If you know your wines it is also a must because the wine list was a book!!

    With its pretty interior and spacious dining areas, Truffles provides a great place for a chatty lunch with a group of friends or a more intimate tete-a-tete. The service was good yet unobtrusive. The food was tasty; our group enjoyed the trout, the chicken wrap, and the house salad with grilled chicken. We would definitely return to this convenient and quiet restaurant.

    The food is excellent and at times, even innovative. But the thing that truly impresses every time is the service. Always on time, always there when you need them. From the moment you enter until you leave, there is a constant acknowledgment and what seems to be a genuine care. for your experience. Even when small mistakes were made, the attention and the correction was timely and impressive. Try the hanger steak or a trout and don't forget to browse through that "bible" of a book they call wine list. Nothing comes close in the city.

    This was always one of our favorites. Lately, the food has been extra edgy and exciting. We had an outstanding cured salmon with dollops of dill/lemon gelee that was served on a pink Himalayan salt block! Amazing! Pretty sure no one else in Saint Louis is doing this. I wish all the items were served like that, it was that good. The hanger steak was one of the best I've ever had and the Dover Sole my friend ordered was classic and exceptional, with the table carving/presentation and all. Some great things are happening here, can't wait to come back for more.

    The only reason why I gave four stars instead of five for ambience is because I was cold. I typically run cold in restaurants, so this is not uncommon, but I did think the a/c was a little too aggressive.

    Went to Truffles for our anniversary dinner and brought our 3 teenage kids along! There was something for everyone on the menu. Food was outstanding and service excellent. My husband even brought his own food ( he's on a special diet) and they heated it up for him and brought it out with the rest of ours. Very understanding and non judgemental. Would definitely return.

    Wasn't busy because of the holiday weekend ... BUT everything was 100% amazing from the moment we walked in. Had a great table and the best waiter, Chris. His partner Demo was great as well. We shared the mushroom risotto w/truffle oil to start. Bliss!!!!! Soft shell crab season -- upon Chris's recommendation I gave this a try. Truly did not disappoint. Looking forward to my next visit to STL and I'll definitely be back to Truffles.

    As great, consistent and innovative of a menu as they come, especially for Saint Louis area. Easily the best wine list I have ever seen in Missouri and better than some of the top restaurants in New York or Chicago, as well. Attentive staff, great bar atmosphere and yet somehow there is always a room even if late for making a reservation. The best kept secret in STL. From sheer selfish reasons, we hope it stays that way.

    The quality of the food and the preparation were outstanding. The others at our table commented on how tasty the food was. My husband had the Dover sole and said it was the best fish he's ever eaten. The wine is always a decent pour for the price (my favorite is the white burgundy). Casual, friendly ambiance in the bar with just the right upscale approach in the dining room. It is pricey but worth it. There were a few times when I felt that our waiter was MIA but just went it seemed he wasn't being attentive enough, he would show up.

    Celebrated a 85th birthday here and had a wonderful experience. The Steak Tartar was excellent. Enjoyed the burger, duck and ravoli as well. Excellent wine list. Only reason we did not give the place 5 stars is due the price they charged for a very small tuna salad...26 bucks for a extremely small portion of both lettuce and tuna. Stick to the menu or you might get screwed.

    I had not dined at Truffles for years, but used to be a regular when it first opened. I remember eating the Dover Sole years ago and was excited to eat it once again, although it is expensive. The Dover Sole wasn't quite as good as I remembered, but it was still quite satisfying. I started with the Caesar Salad, which wasn't all that great. My other dining companions had the Almond Crusted Trout and the New Orleans BBQ shrimp, which I believe they both enjoyed. For dessert we had the Bananas Foster and it was divine. The dining room was a bit empty for 8pm on a Friday night, but the bar was certainly hopping. I'm sure I'll be back to Truffles at some point in the future.
