Food was great. Flies and knats were horrible. Spent half the time shooing them away. Maybe separate bar and LOUD drinker with dinner side.

The meals and & Ambiance were perfect as always. We had 4 parties, 2 in each, asking for 2 separate bills....all was done to each wrong party, what a mess.
A pouring rain storm began just as several people were leaving....could not believe no umbrellas were offered or available for assistance, at all, in getting into our cars which were impossible to get to when brought around....it was every man/woman for himself!

I live “a stone’s throw” away from Terelli’s. I’ve been there often, but this was the first time the service nor the food was what I’d expected. The server was unfriendly. His assistants were very friendly and helpful. They made sure we had water and kept our tables bussed. The waiter seemed to not want to engage with us. We had a running bet on the first person at our table who could make him smile. It finally happened when he brought our ticket. We don’t drink so we aren’t loud and wild. We were friendly and open to him, but it seemed when he saw we weren’t ordering drinks and lots of expensive food that he wasn’t interested. Also, for years 2 of the 3 of us in our party order the smoked salmon appetizer. It is gone from the menu! I hate having a bad experience at a place I’m fond of, but that’s what happened this time.

We enjoyed our time with our friends, the restaurant is clean and tidy. The staff is polite and the food is tasty. Nothing to stand out and say "WOW" about but we will go back and hopefully it will blow me over.

A very good restaurant—lots of energy.
Food was very good. A generous basket of
Various breads were left at the table with olive oil dip or butter. We loved to start with Crabmeat, artichoke and spinach Iltachoes.
A lot of great salads, pasta and main dishes are served with a side salad or rice and veggies. Two levels of seating are available along with a large first floor bar. And a lovely bar and tables on the third floor/rooftop. It is business casual dress, and has a good mix of clients. Free valet parking. Also outdoor patio seating, Try The Capellini de Angelo!

Good experience, however, the hospitality was disappointing this visit. I called in advance to update my reservation, and when we arrived, no one was aware. We had a birthday celebration and it was not acknowledged. I just did not feel very welcomed this visit.

This is my 2nd trip to Terilli's. The 1st was a little testy as the hostess couldn't find our reservation. This was taken care of very quickly, but it limited our ability to enjoy the entire experience due to a time constraint. The food was worth taking a 2nd chance and was it it ever worth it. From the valet parking to the wait staff to the food prep and presentation and finally the trio starting to warm up as we were ending our meal...everything was fabulous and definitely worth returning again.

Terilli’s is a Dallas mainstay that I have loved for 25+ years. I was there on a recent Friday evening for dinner and the food was fantastic as usual. Over the years, I really enjoy during off peak times like on a Saturday afternoon. Meet friends, order a martini or glass of wine, enjoy great food and relax! If you haven’t been before, ya gotta go. It’s a Dallas classic!

Terilli's is our go-to restaurant for celebrations. We have never had a bad experience. Most recently, Tuesday night, on my hubby's bday, we enjoyed the trio singing and playing the piano throughout dinner. Favorites for my family include cream of jalapeño soup and ital-chos. Every seafood dish is amazing and pastas are always perfectly prepared. Also, Terelli's has a great wine list and selection of cocktails. I whole-heartedly recommend Terrilli's to anyone looking for a guaranteed special dining experience.

Had pasta with chicken. Was tasty however chicken was over cooked. Liked the way it was decorated, good location but it was waaaayyyy too loud. Could not hear yourself think much less the person sitting next to you. The only reason will not return.

This place has been one of the greatest places to go in Dallas for years. 5 star service, like a country club . Yet you do NOT have to dress to the nines, the music (live piano and bass player) are always great. Very subtle, not loud or anything. Very easy to hold a table conversation even if you're 15 feet away. The food is insanely good. You must have a chocolate Martini.
