Truffle Pig Ratings and Reviews
Service was great, friendly and gracious. No complaints about that. Our disappointment was with the menu. It seemed rather limited and we struggled to find something that we wanted to order. Lots of heavier food, unless you skipped an entree and just ordered a salad. If you didn't want a steak or fried food there wasn't a lot to choose from. There was one fish entree, but it was rather pricey at $33. Unless there's a change in the menu and kitchen, we won't return. Too bad because the staff and manager were so nice.
Made a reservation and was pleasantly surprised to be seated on the patio without asking. Server was extremely good...prompt, made nice wine suggestion, checked back often. The salmon & sea bass were very good. Although they were extremely busy, never felt rushed.
We had the 1/2lb hamburger and Chilean sea bass fish and chips (the special that night). Both were excellent, the location is fantastic but the service was slow. Food arrived timely but we had no opportunity to order a second drink until we were waiting for the check.
Would definitely return and hope for a less busy wait staff.
Unfortunately Truffle Pig has gone downhill since our first visit a few years ago. I've had two lackluster meals there recently. During our most recent visit, a number of problems come up:
(1) There was a hair in the butter on the bread plate, which was really unappetizing...I understand that this sort of thing happens sometimes, and if it were an isolated issue I wouldn't make mention of it, but unfortunately the meal didn't get better. To be fair, we were given a new bread plate when we reported the issue.
(2) The server got our order wrong and neglected to bring the correct fries, though this was rectified when we mentioned the problem to a bus person.
(3) Our steaks were cooked extremely unevenly - mine was raw in spots (I'd asked for medium) and my companion's was also raw in in a number of areas (he'd asked for medium-rare); however, the unevenness of the cooking implies that the chef may be using frozen steaks which are not properly thawed or perhaps steaks from the refrigerator which are very cold? I'm not sure, but something should be done to improve this.
(4) Truffle Pig erroneously reported us to Open Table as not having showed up, which caused a subsequent passive-aggressive email from Open Table to be sent to my inbox with which I had to deal the following day.
(5) The meal was very expensive given the lackluster quality - I simply was not impressed, and for a $45/person meal I expect better food.
I will not return to Truffle Pig and I'd urge diners to consider other excellent fine dining options, most notably Cafe Diva in the mountain area and Harwig's and others in the downtown area. Avoid E3 though...in my experience it's very overrated.
We had a bad experience w the food. The pork strip plate was TOTAL fat and inedible. I had the fish and chips (with a fancy name). It was so geasy it all came up that night - $24!. The other 3 pork meals were so-so and fatty. The Shishito peppers needed more cooking (we've had many others elsewhere). The (free) cornbread and butter were the ONLY good thing.
I now put Truffle Pig up there with the very best restaurants in Steamboat Springs. Our service was superb (by Amanda ), and the food was outstanding. We had duck breast, steak, and a host of appetizers. Every one was terrific. Plus fine wine and mixed drinks. It is Cafe Diva ? No, but I think it is not trying to be. It is somewhat more casual, and looks to capture the after ski crowd. Only complaint - the bread is only ok....
Someone in my party tried the ravioli with Brussels sprouts which is listed as a main entrée and it came out with 4 small squares of ravioli and half a Brussels sprout. It was $25. Waitress didn't care to offer a new dish or take it off the bill. The steaks were okay but not $55 steaks. I've had $50 steaks.
Good spot at base of gondola for nice lunch. Outdoor dining with heat lamps if a little cold...great grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup....good French fries..special fish and chips..really good. Service was fine ....our waitress very friendly and efficient . Would go back again.
We had taken the Truffle Pig off our list of favorite restaurants two years ago and went back this year after hearing of the new chef. The food was just fabulous. I had a top ten meal from the vegetable side I ordered as an app to the bread pudding dessert.
The setting and the vibe have always been good but now the food is great!
Had a large party their for lunch mid day during busy holiday ski day and it worked out well with open table reservation...the floors are slippery when wet and wearing ski boots. They have rugs out but a few of us almost fell anyway...lunch was fabulous. Truffle fries were a bit over seasoned salty garlic for my taste but loved the adult grilled cheese. Wish I had gotten the blt it was a hit with others.
Everything from start to finish was delicious.
Fresh baked warm baguette bread with triple berry butter, Lobster Mac n' Cheese to die for (a bit pricey but worth every bite).
The special that night was a pork tenderloin with a maple bourbon glaze..sooooo good!
The chilean sea bass dish was also very well seasoned.
Dessert was "milk and cookies" -6 cookies, 3 different types, loved the lemon basil (I know it sounds odd but it was really good!)
I would highly recommend this place. The service was excellent. They accommodated our family (young children) by seating us away from the bar.
All in all, a great experience!
Overall, my husband and I enjoy this restaurant for its wait staff and lively atmosphere. My meal was excellent , pork chop with mashed potato, but unfortunately my husbands meal wasn't so enjoyable. His ribeye was salty and the potato (fingerlings) overcooked
But, we'll be back for sure, since all our other experiences have been positive.
The bacon wrapped dates and the burger were both great, however the brussels sprouts hash was not cooked at all - the potatoes and sprouts were hard and there was little flavor. We tried sending it back just to get it cooked a little more but it came back just as bad. Our server didn't ask if it was better, she just kept walking by looking at us. She could have been a little more accommodating. She even complained loudly by our table that another one of her tables didn't tip her at all. We felt bad for her, so we still tipped her pretty well, but overall we were disappointed with the service and some of the food.
We enjoyed our dinner at the Truffle Pig again this year. The restaurant is a bit noisy and feels a little crowded but the service was attentive and the food was quite good. I appreciate that they offer a children's menu (for Piglets) since the adult menu portions are large. We had both entrees and dessert and everyone was happy with their meal. We would happily eat there again.
John Witmer was excellent as sommelier. Brought us decanter glasses which enhanced our bottle of Cab nicely. Our, whose name I cannot remember (however he went to college in Kansas City) was also excellent. Only gripe would be that, although my rib eye was cooked to perfection and was of correct temperature, the accompanying potatoes and brussel sprouts were a bit cold. Detracted a bit from an otherwise excellent meal.
How do I begin, I had read the reviews and was apprehensive, we had Apres ski several nights prior and it was fine, although noisy. We sat at the bar and it was fine. Decided to return on our last night in Steamboat, and it was packed. Not really the fault of the restaurant. The Truffle fries were the highlight and as for the rest, not too memorable. The pork Osso Bucco was dry and flavorless, the polenta was grainy. My son's 25 dollar burger was overcooked and looked like a hockey puck, my husband got the lamb t-bone with root vegetables, but they were nowhere to be found... Our brussel sprout hash was brought out after we had finished the mains, dessert was just an overall failure. My youngest son brought ordered the orange cream float and was served a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. The runner argued that he would later be brought an orange soda to go with the "float", he was rude, argumentative and just plain uninformed. My other son ordered 2 scoops of chocolate ice-cream and 1 scoop of vanilla/it was flip-flopped. We ordered the 15 layer chocolate something, and it was just a hunk of chocolate mousse with not much else. The manager did make amends by comping the orange float, which was kind. I would come here again, but not during the busy Christmas season. They were understaffed, and overwhelmed, with the dishes being underwhelming.
