Truffles Cafe - Pope Avenue
Food TerrifWe had a great experience and a fun evening. Would definitely come back. This is our second or third year dining at Truffles. Always a pleasure.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTry ItThe salmon was fresh and very tasty. We enjoyed the experience on our first evening on Hilton Head Island.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPope Ave.Moderately priced, casual, and really good food. Try the Brie appetizer . . .5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food but serviceWonderful food but service was very slow even though it was relatively uncrowded. However this could be part of the area as we have noticed that most of the restaurants have very slow service. Most meals take an hour and a half even with reservations. The restaurant was conveniently located off the main highway and everyone was friendly.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not greatFood was well prepared and well presented, but could easily have been great. My husband had shrimp liguini with brie. He was not thrilled with the pasta and left most of it. I think the shrimp was ver good but somehow the brie just didn't work and gave the dish a weird taste. I had the caesar salad with grilled shrimp which was good-the shrimp was tasty altho slightly overdone andiguess the romaine was somwhat more wilted from the dressing than I am used to expecting, but I ate it all. Service was pleasant and effcient which it should have been since we were the only diners at 2pm on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time betterWe had a terrible experience at Truffles last year---to his credit---the owner followed-up with us after our review. This time thibgs were much better though again the hostess couldn't
find our reservation an suggested we may have made the reservation at another Truffles location. Fortunately, another host had seen our reservation earlier and corrected her.
The mahi mahi was fantastic and the service after the initial
glitch was wonderful. Server was attentive but not intrusive and the manager I presume stopped by to apologize for the reservation hiccup.
Thanks, Price, for inviting us to try Truffles again. Our experience this time was excellent. We will be back.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service with a smile....Excellent service with a smile.... good/great food....great way to enjoyb a Hilton Head break.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMhighly recommendyou visithighly recommendyou visit this restaurant during your stay on Hilton Head5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceWe were very pleased with our meal at Truffles on Pope Ave. on Hilton Head Island. Our order consisted of Coconut Shrimp, barbecue ribs, shoestring fries, apple cole slaw, ribeye steak, risotto, sautéed spinach, and key lime pie. All the food was very good, and I would consider the pie and ribs to be among the best we have eaten. The steak was somewhat disappointing in that it was very tough and difficult to eat and chew. The steak was cooked properly, and had a good taste. So, it must be the quality of the meat.. We are accustomed to a much more tender cut of Ribeye which has been adequately tenderized and seasoned. Our service was outstanding and everyone at the restaurant is to be commended for their friendliness.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Pope Avenue findTucked into little shopping plaza on Pope. Relaxing, dark-wood ambiance. Ribs best ever eaten! Service excellent. Quiet and romantic.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeGreat food....Best steak...better than the so-called steak houses...Good atmosphere...not too bright, not too dark...Best Key Lime pie (to die for)...Little pricey but well worth it.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodAll courses were excellent: tomato soup, grilled salmon, and you didn't even need to pick up the ribs the meat was so tender it fell off the bone. Rib sauce comes in many varieties and this has a more vinegar taste which I prefer. The homemade key lime pie was first class as well.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Varied MenuReally good menu and execution. The ribs were truly Award Winning
The server was fairly new but he did his best to handle a demanding table5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHillary has waited on us severalHillary has waited on us several times and she is very friendly, knowledgeable and caring.

I even tried a special, which was excellent, though I tend to order the wedge salad and crab cakes every time because they are the best on the island. When I have a craving, we make a reservation at Truffles. We took new friends, and recommend it to everyone we meet who is new to the island.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for a casual dinner.Nice place for a casual dinner.

We've been there several times and I'm always very impressed with the food and service. Tonight I got the Chipotle Chicken and it was excellent.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent as usual.Food was excellent as usual. We sat on the bar side this time. A little too dark, and cold. It was difficult to see menu, and need a sweater to be comfortable. Normally, we sit on patio, but it was raining the day we were there.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Loved theExcellent food. Loved the BBQ shrimp. Only problem was the noise4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and atmosphereThis is a very versatile restaurant. We have been going to other restaurants in the area and none of them got our attention. Truffles was different, the food was really good (try the steak!) and the ambience too. Definitely would (and will) recommend to my friends. They have a great patio dining area but the day we went was cold. So next time I hope we can have dinner there, it has an excellent vibe!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, less than ave serviceI think when you add an 18% gratuity you should get 18% service ( party of 6). Had to ask about refilling drinks, appetizer took 45 min to come out. "Kitchen mistake". In most restaurants I dine they would be free. Also my wife requested candles on dessert and he forgot. Food was good and would try and hopefully get a more competent waiter.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful meal .Another wonderful meal . We are never disappointed when we go to Truffles!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been there several times,Have been there several times, and have never been disappointed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a 25 year fan of Truffles.I am a 25 year fan of Truffles.
