    Terrible. Just don’t do it. Charred filet. Raw burger- ordered medium. Took an hour and half after order placed one and done. Forget it

    We each had a chicken entree which was overcooked and rubbery and took over 30 minutes to arrive. We normally only have the excellent French fries. The cocktails are very good.

    The food at Truffles is always, always top-notch! From the cocktails to the entrees to the deserts, I enjoy every part of every meal there. Sometimes the service is excellent, and at its worst (busiest) it is still good. I also appreciate the lighting and ambiance - it is comfortable and I enjoy bringing guests new to Bloomington here. From the outside, it can seem very unassuming - but it is really one of the best restaurants in Bloomington.

    I booked a reservation here for my girlfriends birthday and she is vegetarian so the meal she got was the highlight of the restaurant because she wasn’t expecting it to be delicious as she assumed.

    The food is a little pricey but very good. We had oysters and charcuterie tray for appetizers. Both of them were very good and fresh. Cocktails and wine were good and arrived appropriately. All four dinners of steak, chicken and lamb tasted great with nice arrangements on the plate. Overall a great dinner and time with friends.

    We went to Truffle’s for New Year’s Eve hoping to have a nice meal before going to a later celebration at 10 pm. Our reservation was for 7:30 pm. We figured 2 hours was plenty of time to have our meal and return home before the party. Immediately when we arrived, the staff seemed frantic. It took them a few minutes to acknowledge us and several more to be seated. The restaurant was clearly very busy, so waiting wasn’t an issue. When we did get to our table, we took a look at the menu, ordered drinks, and promptly made our meal choices. It then took 45 minutes just to get our drinks! That same pace would continue throughout the night. Salads 30 minutes later, appetizers another 15, and then our main course probably another 30 after that, as it was close to 9:45 when we were eating our meals (2 hours and 15 minutes after our reservation!). We promptly asked for the check when the meal came out and explained to the server that we had a prior engagement. Our server packaged up our desserts to-go, which was kind. He also apologized for the wait and disorder several times throughout the meal and was genuinely doing the best he could on a busy night. But when the bill came, there was no acknowledgement from the restaurant that anything was wrong. No drinks were comped, no discounts given—nothing. It appeared the management cared much more about maximizing their revenue than they did providing a good customer experience. Clearly they overbooked their reservations and did not have the capacity to handle so many tables, but at least try to rectify the situation and show some concern for your customers. Will not be back.

    We had reservations for 6:30. Once we arrived we were immediately seated. But once seated we didn’t have menus or a waiter for 15mins. Once we got a menu and ordered drinks we had to wait another 15 mins for drinks. All while everyone around us were getting refills. Truffles was our go to spot before tonight. Their drinks are delicious. But that evening the food was not good. It almost taste sour. Oh well you live and learn. We paid, Tipped and left.

    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.
