Predictably a great overall experience. The duck and wine selections are winners.

Truffles continues to provide an excellent fine dining option. While the tried & true menu delivers consistent quality & value, chef's daily specials are outstanding adventures in flavors!

Serves very pleasant but took a long time to bring every course. Second glasses of wine took extremely long, even considering the busy time. They seemed to have forgotten drinks and dessert until we reminded them, even though things were slower by then.

Another first-class, top-shelf NYE experience at Truffles. Server was attentive and pleasant. Food was on point, and to say we’re picky is being generous. Mask compliance by staff was 100%. Truffles is for adults who want excellent food and drinks in a high end but relaxed atmosphere. Great for date night, special occasions, and business meals. Also good if a group of friends want to celebrate something special. We will go again.

The food at Truffles was the best we have had in Bloomington. It is pricey, but worth it for a special evening out. We were also very impressed with the beverage service and the care that was taken in our wine options. Don't skip dessert. I still cannot stop thinking about the amazing cheesecake!

The food was delicious. It was prepared just as we ordered it. My husband has some food allergies and the chef was very accomodating in altering the food preparation. Our server, Joe, was very knowledgeable and he knew is wine and cocktails very well and was able to advise us.

We weren’t very impressed or super happy with our experience. The food was okay. The service was okay. The bathroom was freezing. It took an hour to get our food. We enjoyed the appetizers more than the main course. I’d recommend maybe 3/10

Stale wine; overpriced and low quality food; understaffed and poor attitude of staff. Way overpriced, $28 for an overcooked and over seasoned "fillet." Will not be returning.

Truffles is a very good restaurant. Our meals off the “specials” menu were also very good but their regular menu is also excellent. Service was attentive but not intrusive. They have a great wine list and the owner Mark has a lot of bottles off list - just ask him about them. Very good meal, only downside was the table next to us was a little loud. Not something the folks at Truffles can control but they quieted as the night wore on.

We came into Bloomington to visit our son at IU. Truffles was a very nice treat for him. The set menu was very good. Each of the courses were very tasty. Our waiter was terrific! We would definitely return to Truffles.

Homecoming! Lovely evening but not told about set menu in advance. And service was very slow because of that. But server was delightful. Exposed cord and a few unsightly things in our area but otherwise a great place!

Very disappointed. My neighbors have been raving about Truffles since we moved in a year and a half ago so we decided to try it out. My husband got the steak special but there was so much fat on the steak that the serving was literally half the size of what was served. My chicken and pasta dish was bland and the chicken was quite dry. I only ate half and did not box the rest. It took three tries for our server to get my drink right, and it took more than 45 minutes for our food to come out after we finished our appetizer (carrot soup, which was the best part of the meal). We will not be back.

We could not have asked for better quality food. The steak was perfectly done and the salmon was absolutely exquisite. Bit of a crispy crunch to the outside and flaky on the inside. Well seasoned. Just perfectly done. We will definitely be back.
