  • "This is a hidden treasure. Chef Greeley has an unusual menu, very different and he is adept at anything he tries. Eclectic, but top ratings from us."

  • "Don't know why I hadn't had filet mignon at TGT before but decided to try it for our Valentine's day lunch. Both my wife and I agree, it was the most flavorful steak we've ever had. Everything else was superb as well, which is what you'd expect from The Golden Truffle."

  • "chef Alan Greeley is nothing short of amazing.his food is both sophisticated and somehow simple at the same time. He is perhaps the single most creative chef in Orange County. This is a place to dine well; not a place to come and be seen."

  • "Went early b4 the rush, terrific cocktail service. Shared an appetizer, salad and entre. Perfect portions. Attentive service with a terrific Hungarian red wine suggestion. I could eat every meal here."

  • "Chef/owner Alan Greeley typically offers one of the most diverse menus in Orange County. His duck with raspberry sauce is second to none and even if you think you don't like escargot, if escargot Jamacanaise is on the appetizer menu don't pass it up. The only downside to the restaurant is that there are so many intriguing items on the menu it's difficult to make a choice."

  • "I have been coming here for years and this visit was horrible. The food was over salted, very average and disappointing. This guy has always been excellent so I'm hoping it was just a bad night."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "While the food was good to excellent, the service was painfuly slow. Wait staff inexperienced. It took 1 hour and 15 minutes from the time we sat down to get our appetizers. I was difficult to get a second drink - sat there for at least 20 minutes with an empty glass. Wasn't offered pepper for my soup, and when I asked they came back with a peppermill that didn't work or was empty. No acknowledgement of their slow service. Getting the bill was even painfully slow. Decor was very outdated - felt stark and cold. Would not reurn"

  • "Favorite spot for a leisurely luncheon with business colleagues. Also my wife's preferred dinner location when we are in the area."

  • "First time after driving past the restaurant for several years. Not exactly a great time. We were seated in their Wine Room which I understand should be cool but it was cold! Several other couples that came in either left or asked to be moved. We stuck it out! Lighting was dark. Service took a while to get going but was OK once someone knew we were here. We really do like to try new places but probably won't go back......"
