Noise was definitely a minus but the food delicious as always. We requested the veal Parmesan without the red sauce but with the walnut cream sauce and it was delicious!! Thanks!!

I have been a patron for longer than I care to say and never had a bad experience. The food is always good, service, music, etc. This time was almost the same. However, I’m guessing since it was Valentine’s Day and rather crowded, it wasn’t 100% their night. The roasted garlic and goat cheese, that I have probably ordered at least 10 times wasn’t fully roasted. Instead of the garlic being spreadable, it came out in whole cloves. Nothing awful, but not what I expected. The raviolis were good, the fettuccine was also good. It wasn’t the best night at Terilli’s, but I would go back again.

I brought clients there and we found the experience excellent and was the best meal we had while in Dallas! When you visit from out of town you never know what you are going to get. We were very happy with our choice.

We sat outside and it was a lovely experience. The wait staff was attentive and responsive. It was noisy with the traffic so if you are looking for a quiet place - the patio is not it. We enjoyed the brunch - most of us had the eggs benedict either over crab cakes or English muffin. It was superb! We have another reservation in a couple of weeks....

This was an incredible dining experience. The food was fabulous, the piano set a wonderful ambiance and the service was top notch. The only issue was the lighting made it incredibly difficult to read the menu. I would definitely go back. True Italian fare made fresh.

The food is good but I wasn’t expecting my veal piccata to be breaded and topped with cheese. Much too heavy and not what I’m used to with this entree. Salad was very skimpy.
My previous trip here was much better. Very loud both times. Difficult to carry on a conversation.

Occasionally, you "stub your toe". We had a party of 6 for a parent's 84th birthday. 11am brunch. Promptly seated. Our server Nathan was great. 6 entrees ordered, 5 delivered. Of the 5 delivered, 4 were lukewarm to cold. The 6th entree showed up after about 10 minutes.

The "Italian potatoes" served with breakfast were similar to au gratin potatoes made with hash-brown potatoes. Soft, and very liquid-y. No crispness that one would anticipate with breakfast potatoes.

The restaurant compensated us with 4 complimentary desserts. 3 were great. One was just "meh."

We'll come back. Just really disappointed this time.

Went to Terilli's for my birthday with the family. We all had a great time. They have valet service, so there was no problem parking and got seated immediately. We ordered drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert. Were in and out of the restaurant in less than two hours. Everything came out as ordered, and tasted delicious. The marinated crab claws were very tasty! The jazz duo was a nice addition to the ambiance. We will certainly be back!

Food was average for the price you pay. Service was OK - one of the people in our party got their food almost 20 minutes before the rest of us so it was cold by the time we all ate.

The waiter was wonderful. The bar and wine list was great. The special halibut fish dish left us wanting. Fish was too smoked and dry. Too much confusing flavors for a fish. Also, we requested a quiet table, received a back corner table and it was still pretty noisy.

Came here for a birthday party, and as always we had a wonderful time. Their happy hour menu is fantastic & Tuesday is 1/2 wine night with AMAZING deals on wine. Would suggest this place for a casual dining or special occasion experience.

Perfect place for my sons and I to celebrate together the night before Thanksgiving. Excellent service (including the very polite and accommodating valet). Stellar chocolate martinis! Excellent food from appetizer (Italinachos) to dessert (Tiramsu). Live music: marvelous addition without intruding on table conversation. Lovely long-established neighborhood venue I hope lasts forever.

I have loved this restaurant for years! I have hosted a couple of my birthday parties here with over 12 people and have always been 100% satisfied. I made an initial reservation for 4 and called the day of the reservation to see if they could change the reservation to 6. This was a Thursday night. They said they could change it, but there may be a wait. I said that was fine. They actually seated us quickly, but they seated us in a booth. There were 3 women and 3 men. All three men are 6ft plus and 220 plus pounds. The booth next to us had six women but they fit comfortably. We did not. We were seated on the ground level next to the bar. There was a football game on at the bar as well as a band playing at the bar. The patrons were quite loud, as you would expect at a bar watching a game, but I found it an odd combination to go with a piano and harp. I will return if I just want to hang at the bar and have a drink, but I won't return again for an upscale dinner with friends. The food was great as always and our server was awesome. We did mention more than once that we were uncomfortable, but I guess the seating was beyond her control.

We had a wonderful evening. We came for our friends birthday and were not disappointed. The service was so good it was like our dirty plates and items disappeared without us even knowing. They were attentive and friendly. The food was all incredible. There wine selection is very extensive. The ambience is romantic, with dim lighting, a live piano player and enough room between booths to actually have a complete conversation without being interrupted by neighboring tables. Highly recommend.

Terilli’s is quite possibly the best upper to fine dinning Italian restaurant in the Dallas area. The staff is always terrific, and the food is amazing. We are not always able to get there, due to not living closer, but we always look forward to our trips to Terilli’s.
