    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!

    I was disappointed that the pork chops were not available. I've had them before, and truly, one of the best dishes I've ever eaten! However, Everything we ordered was splendid--especially, dare I say it?--the french fries! We go to Truffles whenever we have something to celebrate, and, more importantly, especially when we have nothing to celebrate.

    We had yet another fabulous dining experience at Truffles. The Goat Cheese and the Charcuterie board were both really excellent. For mains, we enjoyed the Salmon, Petite Filet, and the Pork Loin. All had robust flavor and complementary sides. Having dined at Truffles over multiple years, the menu and food quality now with nightly specials are the best they have ever been.

    Ambiance mediocre at best the kid bringing water looked like he was 10 years old so was a tad alarming Service pretty sub par for price point Goat cheese app and calamari were good except calamari was served w/ bottled ranch dressing ??? Bone-in pork entree was completely over cooked-beyond tough 5-oz filet was good but not outstanding -mashed potatoes were too liquidy and bland

    Food was really bad. Waygu burger. Stale bun, burger tasted like it had fillers in it, truffle fries stale tasting, I mean really bad. Nice waiter but, so glad I did not make my graduation dinner there. Salad had raspberries in it and they were frozen salad came with no dressing . Sorry just bad . Please improve your food . Charged extra for changing fries from regular to truffle 6 dollars each and 12 dollars for a horrible salad.

    We arrived on time for our reservations but the hostess said she did not have an OpenTable reservation for 2 at 6:45. I remembered I had an email confirmation on my phone so I showed her that. The bar and restaurant was packed and she looked very stressed out. She ran back and forth several times and pretty quickly seated us in a booth in a wide hallway off of the large room. So no ambience there, but may have been a good thing as the restaurant noise level was insane. We both noticed that the menu prices were higher than the several websites we had looked at, especially for bottles or wine. Our server saved the night. He was obviously super busy but was attentive and friendly. We both ordered the same entree then found out it was no longer available. The appetizer, wine and our entrees were all good, but I had heard and read such glowing reviews about the food I guess I was disappointed. It was just one of those nights...too bad as we were celebrating our anniversary. I don't think we'll go back as there were just too many signs of a disorganized or inconsistent restaurant. And yes, I did take into account the possible effects of Covid, etc. in my rating. The very first thing we noticed on arrival was a bunch of junk here and there walking up to the door. And more junk stashed here and there inside too. But there was a happy ending as we decided to order dessert to go and have a glass of tawny port at home. The chocolate truffles were the best ever!

    This was our third visit to Truffles and their consistency of quality food and presentation is to be commended. Four of us started with their signature old fashioneds which were excellent. Calamari appetizer was tender yet crispy with a wonderful aioli dip. I normally order a steak here but my wife had the chicken last time and it was so good I ordered it with her this time it was delicious and the risotto was cooked perfectly. Our dinner companions had the duck and the monk fish special and they raved about their food. Truffles has become our “go to” place for a nicer dining experience! Highly recommend!
