A very pleasant surprise. An OpenTable recommendation. I purposely didn't do much up front research wanting no up front expectations. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We totally enjoyed the experience. I enjoy quieter restaurants so you can have a pleasant conversation without raising your voice. Truffles is perfect for that and still provides enough atmosphere to keep it pleasant. The wine list is obviously one of the key reasons to visit this restaurant. It's out of this world. You would be hard pressed not to find something to your liking. Everyone is able to provide great advice as well. We are definitely returning.

The restaurant has now raised its corkage fee to $35 which is the highest in St. Louis. It is more than a little ridiculous. I know the restaurant is trying to drive people to their wine list but the corkage will cause us to frequent other restaurants and not Truffles.

Let me start by saying the steak was fabulous. The pork was juicy. That's where it ends. The sides were unimaginative. The sauces average. The service was excellent. All dishes were served at once. The interior is I desperate need of updating. The tables were so crowded together that all of us at the table were being bumped throughout our meal. Disappointing experience for the money I paid

The menu was too meat heavy for us. Vegetarians would be hard pressed to find an entre. While I eat fish and chicken, the chicken pot pie was also very heavy, although I was pleased it was made with only white meat.

This was our third visit to Truffles and this time everything was the same as it has been in the past. Excellent and attentive service, superb wine selection, tasty food selections and a lovely atmosphere. The only drawback I can point to is the size of the stuffed lobster tail portion. It was on the small side when I gazed upon others that ordered the same.

This is something I think I can overlook as the company I was with very much enjoyed their food and saw no issues.

Always a great meal at Truffles. Very consistent and quality. I was glad to hear expanded dinner hours include Sunday & Monday. We will miss having Truffles as a lunch option but very nice to have the expanded dinner hours. Still have the option to get lunch at The Butchery. Maybe you can add a few of the lunch menu favorites to the Butchery menu.

Great dinner with friends. Perfect food and presentation, great atmosphere, very good service (the restaurant was crowded so it was a little slow), excellent wine choices. We've long thought ruffles was one of the best restaurants in St. Louis and last weekend's visit confirmed it.

Truffles is one of our favorite St. Louis restaurants (maybe our favorite). The staff is what restaurants is supposed to be like, but is so rare. The menu is extraordinary and the wine list is one the city's most extensive. The bar is a great place in its own right either before or after dinner, pre-gaming or a nightcap, you never be disappointed.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on October 8, 2017

The service was excellent but I found the menu didn't really interest me. None of the appetizers offered were of interest. The salad (Caesar) was good, but fairly small. We both had a steak entree that was very good along with the veggie and fingerling potatoes. They do have an extensive wine list for those interested in variety there. The tables are very close together....So much so that I felt uncomfortable having a conversation with my husband since the person next to me was closer to me than him. Not a very romantic or date night atmosphere. Probably great for a business lunch. For the price, I have had several better steakhouse experiences.

A friend and I had lunch outdoors on a beautiful fall day, surrounded by flowers on their small outdoor patio. They always start with fresh, crisp homemade bread. I had the chicken sandwich with ham and melted cheese, served with a choice of fruit, chips or slaw. She had the crab galette, which she pronounced delicious! They always have a special daily homemade soup as well. We splurged with a glass of wine and knew we'd be back soon!

Opened with the Butchery Board...delicious sampler of artisan cheeses , meats, toasted pumpkin seeds...generous & great starter.

Beth was our server and was attentive and helpful all evening. Great service.

My wife had the petite filet. It was cooked perfectly medium rare. I had the Dover Sole, a rarity in St Louis & expertly prepared. Delicious & beautifully presented. I also had a Caesar Salad & it was nice & cold, fresh, light, flavorful but not heavy like some Caesars.

It was my birthday and Truffle's graciously brought out a wonderful Banana's Foster with a little candle on the side. Get this desert, even if it's not your birthday.

THIS IS THE BEST STEAK IN ST. LOUIS! The service is consistently great, the ambiance comfortable and the location is great with easy parking.

On this occasion I got the New York Strip with their amazing bernaise sauce. IT WAS PERFECT! Great flavor, cooked to temperature and tasty sides. They also had a okra special dish which everyone enjoyed. It was bartered and fried but cut lengthwise.
