    This was yet another wonderful dining experience at Truffles. We started with cocktails that were perfectly crafted to our tastes. Our drinks were soon followed by shrimp cocktail appetizers that were fresh and delicious. We ordered a variety of main courses, and each one was tasty and well prepared. The service was prompt and courteous. This was an absolutely perfect evening. You cannot go wrong with Truffles. It is an excellent dining experience!

    Met a group for early dinner. I’ve passed this restaurant over past year and never considered going but that changed tonight ! Fantastic food and service and wine menu. You will be surprised so don’t let the fact it’s in a shopping strip next to a Kroger stop you from going .

    First time here and probably the last. They were very busy which makes sense, however, did not understand why three days after Valentine’s Day. We were only allowed to order off the Valentines Day menu. We didn’t get any of the options and no specials offered that we saw on their online menu that we were looking forward to enjoying. Really wanted the pasta dish i saw online. If I knew it was only a valentine day menu option 3 days later then I would have went out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. The calamari was bland and the full pieces with the tentacle’s were very tough to chew. Did not eat the rest. It was disappointing. The mahi mahi was very dry and was under seasoned. The purée it was placed upon helped with the tasteless flavor so I slathered it on the fish with each bite. It was served with two small pieces of broccoli. The waygu burger for $25 was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary from a basic burger. It was a nice size burger but did not taste like the $25 price tag . The cheesecake was the best part of the meal. Very tasty and had a great raspberry sauce. Service was fine. For the price tag - so not worth it. First time and definitely the last time.

    Went to Truffles for the first time on, Valentines Day. They were having a four course menu for a fixed price. In my opinion, the amount and quality of the items chosen, were not commensurate with the price paid.

    I ordered a 5 oz filet steak med well tonight which I had on my first visit 2 months ago. The steak seemed similar to the last one I had, except it had a green sauce on the side. It tasted similar except I liked the one I had in December better. The check came and I was billed $48 which is not what I ordered. I asked the waitress why it cost so much and that I ordered the 5oz fillet. She acted like yes that is the price for a 5oz fillet. I said I wanted the petite 5oz. She said they also had a 5oz fillet which is what I ordered. This did not make sense that they were the same size but a different price. I did not have a menu in front of me. I clarified, so I would have had to ask for a petite 5oz. She said yes, I just said 5oz filet. I said, I guess I ordered it wrong, we paid and left confused. I looked at the online menu when I got home and it said 8oz fillet cost $48 and the 5oz was $28. She clearly put the wrong ordered in because I said 5 oz and pointed to the petite on the menu. She acted like I ordered it wrong. She did not offer to reduce our bill or make it right. I called truffles when I realized she was wrong and she made the order mistake on her end. I asked for a manager. The person on the phone said they could help but then said they were not the manager and were not sure if they could help since we did not correct our bill at the time of payment. They also said I ate the larger steak (I could not tell it was larger or different from the previous steak I had 2 months ago). I just thought it tasted not as good as my previous steak experience. I asked for a manager to call me back to resolve this problem and the waitress should be better trained not to order an 8oz when a customer asked for a 5oz. The menu has an 8oz $48 and a 5oz $28. I did not need to say petite as she indicated. I’m unhappy with how they treated us as if I made the mistake. The 8 oz did not taste as good as the 5oz. This was not a positive experience.

    This was New Year's eve dinner. Although we are elderly, restaurant initially wished to seat usk, after discussion among the wait staff, right next to the musical group performing. After we objected, we were moved to a backroom, which had ample seating in the first place and was much quieter. The steak I ordered was overcooked (medium, not medium rare) and supposedly because of a problem with the oven, the dinner rolls were baked too much and hard to eat. The waiter did a poor job explaining the two prix fixe options.

    Arrived around 10 minutes before our reservation time. Person seating could not find our reservation. Asked for help and she could not find it either. Seemed irritated at this. Did get seated at a booth to replace someone who was 45 minutes late. Got water and then ignored for 20 minutes or more. My wife finally flagged down a waiter going by and said we hadn't been helped. A few minutes later our waitress came by; fine after that. Four-course New Year's Eve special with choices. Excellent food, would try again on a less busy evening.

    Took over 1.5 hours to receive food after ordering. Small restaurant, not many tables. Every table's food was significantly delayed. No manager apologies or complimentary apps/drinks/wine to tide one over while waiting. Actually no explanations given or any appologies from waitstaff either. Witnessed manager yelling at patrons leaving after they weren't served food in a timely manner. Disappointing all around. Will not be back.

    We experienced another wonderful meal at Truffles. We were promptly seated upon arrival, and very quickly were served delicious cocktails and a very tasty appetizer. Despite this being midterm graduation at IU and the time for holiday dinners, there was never a lag in service. Two members of our party had the pasta entree, one had the Mahi Mahi, and one had the petite filet. Everything was cooked perfectly and arrived promptly after we placed our orders. We look forward to returning soon!

    Emily, our server, was great; helpful, informative, attentive and personable. The steak frites ordered by two in our part were very good, as was the filet. The halibut was on the dry side and the mashed potatoes very lumpy, the latter of which was not to my liking. The old fashioneds were fabulous and the wine list unexpectedly extensive with excellent choices!
