Unfortunately our group attempted to have dinner in the busy weeks before Christmas. We SHOULD have made a reservation, even on a Thursday evening. The hostesses were not terribly interested in helping us or answering our questions. The owner himself came out to give us an update of our seating status, not the hostesses. It also took the bartender 20... More

Wild Truffle offers an ambitious menu that makes good on its promises. Among the appetizers, even folks who don't much care for brussels sprouts will love what the chef does with them, roasted with Nuesky's bacon and parmesan cheese, and the beet salad with goat cheese is outstanding. We are particularly fond of the Fall Harvest pizza, with squash and... More

Wild Truffle is a nice, upscale place to go with a date or small group. The food is gourmet and interesting. There's a nice selection of wines and desserts. It is very pricey so getting some things to share can be a good option.

Very good wait staff. Affordable and clean. Atmosphere is loud, not a place for a romantic dinner. Will go back to sample another item on the menu. The owner is involved and this is a benefit.

Wild Truffle offers many unique dishes with special appreciation of their "farm to fork" motto. Most things were described by where the food was actually grown (or caught). They have a large selection of draft and specialty beer - I had a delicious one from Germany. I did not peruse the wine menu, but it was available as well. The... More

We had reservations for 7:15 and were seated at about 7:35. Our wine order was taken right away, we were given bread, but no olive oil or butter for it. Our waiter told us about the specials, and we had plenty of time to peruse the menu. We ordered the salmon special, and he suggested a different risotto pairing than... More

While traveling for work, decided to try the Wild Truffle for a group dinner. The staff was very accommodating to our party of 10. Our dinners came out quickly and were presented beautifully. All our selections were delicious. The best came last in the form of dessert. We all enjoyed the chocolate fondue with homemade Zeppole, which was incredible, and... More

Mark's has been a staple in Appleton for many years. And through those years, the food, service, and atmosphere have remained consistently good. The food is generous and prepared with great care. Whether it is lunch or dinner, the wait staff and food has always been good and deserves repeated visits.

I have tried this place three times. Truthfully, all three times I had to go looking for an employee. I cannot rate the food because I have never been seated! Really?! Yes, I have shared this with many. Also, I work in customer service, I meet a lot of people.

A friend and I stopped in here around 8 pm after shopping on a Saturday night. Truthfully, I was a bit cautious after reading some of the recent reviews. We waited at the hostess station for about 5 minutes until someone came out of the kitchen (while chewing her food) to greet us. There was going to be a wait... More
