    Waited over an hour just to get cold (and expensive) food with nothing taken off the bill for the trouble. I wish I'd read prior reviews, because this is clearly an ongoing problem. WILL NOT RETURN

    Was a party of 8 guests and each dish was outstanding. I ordered from their specials a foie gras starter and then tandoori rubbed lamb lollipos. Top notch presentation and preparation. Server was very knowledgeable and helpful. Easily worth the price.

    The food was fantastic, but the vibes were off on the ambiance. From the walls up the place is very nice -- art, high ceilings, etc. But from the top of the booths down everything looked cheap. The carpet needs to be replaced, chairs were stacked in corners. The waiter said he was leaving 10 minutes before the restaurant closed without bringing us the check, and that was weird. I don't know. Weird experience.

    It was a busy IU Homecoming Friday night out and I brought a friend and his daughter, who was in town visiting. We had a 6:45 reservation and the place was hoppin'. Elli (maybe) our server was cheery and knowledgeable about the menu and kept us in the loop on the timing of our order coming out. Did I mention it was BUSY? We ordered drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert. Old Fashioned's were on point, the pine nut crusted goat cheese bruscetta is one of my favorite appetizers on their menu, and we ordered the salmon, bone in pork loin, and duck. All were delicious. Cheesecake and Sea Salt & Caramel cake for dessert was excellent. Excited to go back!

    My girlfriends and I had an incredibly delicious dinner at Truffles. They change out their menu often and offer delicious options. Their soups and salads are fabulous! The soup of the day was this amazing corn chowder with a hint of truffle oil - to die for!!! All of us had the petite filet dinner, and they were cooked to perfection. They had a specialty Dreamsicle martini....SOOO YUMMY! Our lovely waitress, Mackinzie, was outstanding! She was so friendly and attentive.

    Treated with defensiveness and some hostility by, who I will call a senior member of the staff, when a debate/questioned ensued about a request. As the organizer and person who made the reservation and who had reconfirmed several times, when making the reservation and no fewer than three times that evening our preference, I should have been consulted about any changes. Basic professional etiquette. The food was good albeit slow to the table and the server did an admirable job with a large group. Truffles had a limited, set menu that evening but the choices were diverse and we were able to order A La Carte. Most of us have been going there for years. The verdict is out and whether a few of us will be back.

    The prix fixe menus were printed incorrectly. It took a while for them to be reprinted. They serve room temp water. I realize this is becoming more popular, but it’s not my preference. I would have appreciated a clean glass, however. We were not informed ahead of time that there would be a prix fixe menu, but we were allowed to order a la carte, so that was fine. Despite the limited menu, the kitchen took an excruciatingly long time. The salad and baked goat cheese appetizer were good. The entrees were horrible. The salmon was very dry and was served garnished with mayonnaise. There was something hard, indistinguishable, and inedible in my corn salad. I think it was part of a cob. Certainly not worth the nearly $300 for a party of 3 that we paid.

    Three of our group of six ordered the bar plate salmon. It was fabulous! And just the right size. One got the filet, which he said was excellent. Great service on a rainy night during a football game. (Almost empty.) Automatic 20% tip applied for table of six.

    Food was great! But took over an hour and wait staff we had no good.. to many things to list. It’s a shame when the food is good and you have a bad experience that took way to long. After all that server did not ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. I hate when food is good and everything else is not

    Dinners arrived at different times. One meal actually arrived after the other 2 meals were consumed. When I asked the server for a roll to give the guest without his dinner something to eat -while we finished our earlier dinners, the restaurant actually charged us for the bread. We were also charged $80 for a 4-course tasting meal (when that tasting was actually $70) that we didn’t order. Sadly, although the ambiance was great, we will not return.

    Great food and service! Only downside was many, many boxes and other things that should be kept out of sight of diners were out in the dining room, which made the ambience feel very cluttered and not relaxing as it should be.

    HOW LONG DID YOU WAIT FOR FOOD? I am not kidding when I say that the only reason we didn't get up and leave was a) it was my husband's birthday, b) we had our son's roommate as our guest and we had only just met him, c) it was move in weekend at IU and we wouldn't get in anywhere to get a nice dinner. We arrived on time for our 6:15 reservation and our main course came at....8:00pm....and we simply got a: "sorry for the wait". This is not ok. We will not be coming back to have dinner here. The fact that the food was good doesn't really matter because the lack of respect in how they manage their kitchen and the lazy service doesn't make up for it.

    After an unpleasant experience in March, we returned to give Truffles another try. We were delighted to find that the food and service had returned to the quality that we had come to expect from this fine restaurant! The service was prompt, friendly and everything was just as we ordered. Our well prepared cocktails arrived quickly at our table, soon to be followed by very good shrimp cocktails and eggrolls for appetizers. Our entrees were just as ordered. We are very happy with our decision to return to Truffles and look forward to returning soon!
