Don’t judge this place based on being in a strip mall. Excellent ambience inside and great food, wines and cocktails!! We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Strange location. In strip mall. Part of a bar. Tables set up in aisle way. Lot of traffic going by. Food was good as was service.

We have eaten here before and with good outcome. Bad night this time... my lamb dish seemed to have recaptured every kitchen leftover for a week. It tasted horrible and I ate little. Appetizers were good. Good reports from Colleagues on salmon bar portion entrees. Service was poor. Don't know what happened but are going to wait a while before we return.

Great food with different flavors from the ordinary. Quiet enough to talk. Excellent service. Not rushed and not waiting around for the next course.

Valentines—-prie fixe menu. The service was UNBELIEVABLY horrible. This was a 4 course pre-set meal. We ordered everything right away like we were asked. It took 1/2 hour to get our first course which was a little salad and a simple soup for my husband. Then AN HOUR to get our second course!!! We asked multiple times where our food was and the waiter was so harried and said , “this is becoming a real problem”. People were lined up at the door and tables all around us were complaining about the wait times for their food. When we finally got our second course, of course the 3rd course arrived seconds later. Nothing was comped on our bill for all of our complaints or wait time, and nothing was ever offered for the issues. Manager never came to us or any other tables to apologize.

Valentines Evening dinner. 8pm reservation seated on time. Observed other patrons heard there was a long wait to be served. Seen portion size for earlier seating and they looked amazing and good size.
Drinks were ordered promptly. After that is when it all went down hill. About 30 mins later was finally asked to order. Was asked to put all 4 courses in so they could prep the kitchen. Oh let’s back up, We had bread plates but was never served or asked if we wanted any.... now about her 45 mins later the soup and salads appear. (So we now have been there 90 mins. ) good thing they had a bottle of wine per couple. Soup was not as listed on me any. Just thrown together.... waited another 25 mins for next selection. These portions were so small and ridiculous. Oysters, shrimp and chicken strips. (Terriable sizing. And we all have been to many top restaurants in our careers. This was actually hilarious for what was served. Then the main entree was served and it was only worse. Portions were 1/2 the size of portions for early seating. Halibut was maybe 2”x2”. For main course. Sad... the other plates had 2 scallops. The filet was maybe 3oz.

All in all this was terriable to spend this kind of money. We have been there a few other times but this was very disappointing. I’m sure the there was not enough food available this is why the portions were cut in half.

Not satisfied with the poor service, food portions and quality of food. 1 Star ⭐️ at best.

Valentines food Menu was all delicious. Restaurant was a full house and staff was busy. Service was a little slow but allowed time for conversation and we didn’t feel rushed.

It was forValentine’s Day. A four course meal for $75 per person. Food was very good but the service was slow. The waiting staff was blaming the kitchen but there seemed to be a lot of food at the window waiting.to be picked up
We live in Indianapolis and we were just looking for something different. For the price and selection, we could have found it by staying locally.

Food was great, service was fantastic the waitress was personable, attentive but did not over do it. Atmosphere was quite nice considering it was in a shopping center. And we didn’t have to worry about parking.

Made a 6:00 reservation. We were seated immediately. Our server was very nice and gave us great recommendations. The appetizer was awesome! My steak and the wife’s fish special, excellent! The only down side was it took so long to get the meal. Other then that, I would highly recommend.

I made reservations for New Years eve for a party of 4. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and were graciously welcomed and seated immediately. We first saw our waiter about 15 minutes after being seated. He took drink orders, which were promptly filled. The menu for the night was a set 4 course given the holiday. We ordered and waited an hour for the first round of food to arrive. We realized pretty quickly that our waiter (who was really fantastic) was taking care of 2 LARGE parties, our table, plus a table or two in the back. We finally inquired with the "water woman" about course 2. She agreed to check in on our food and returned with it a few minutes later. Repeat the process for the main course and dessert. She was super gracious and helpful. Our waiter finally returned with our checks, was profusely apologetic, and very kind. He did let us know that the dinner service was supposed to take about 90-120 minutes. We were almost 3 hours. The food was ALL excellent. I understand that the evening is busy, but every other table around us had finished and been reseated and served before we were halfway through our meal. Management seemed to actively avoid stopping in and checking with us, in spite of the fact that the floor manager stopped at most of the other tables. So... I would recommend Truffles for its great food, just not if you are on a tight time table.

I have reviewed Truffles several times in the past and my evaluation remains top of the line. It is our neighborhood bistro and one of our favorite Bloomington restaurants. Mark runs a great shop here and we recommend it highly for food, service and ambiance. They take good care of their customers.

Never disappointed!
We had Shrimp Cocktail and the basket of fries, which were delicious starters; followed byy the NY Sirloin and Gnocchi as our entrees.
All of the portions were ample and our palettes were more than sated.
Service was friendly and prompt, without being overwhelming. (Thanks, Zack, Marissa and Taylor!)

Very good option for higher end dining in a college town. Food is very good. Service is friendly and attentive, but need more knowledge of menu and ingredients.

Also ... not a big deal but there were at least a couple more special gins on the menu that they did not actually have in stock. For martini aficionados, that matters...

The food was very over salted along with my date’s steak being very undercooked. The cheese board to start looked like a fancy lunchable and was not worth the price. The only enjoyable part of dinner was our server.
