    Loved all of the food (except dessert), server was accommodating, cocktails especially good. The strawberry rhubarb crisp was syrupy sweet. Wish I’d ordered the chocolate beignets.

    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!

    Great food and wine. The specials were great and we enjoyed everything. Steak was cooked perfectly and appetizers were very good. Did take a while for the server to acknowledge us so there was a moment when we thought this wasn’t going to go well but she did finally get to us and the rest of the dinner was great.

    We planned a weekend trip to Bloomington to visit our daughter attending IU. Traveling from Michigan, we unexpectedly had to bring our small dog. She did great on the journey but she was very nervous in the hotel room by herself. Eager for a nice meal with our daughter, we made a reservation at Truffles with the ultimate intention of taking the food to go as we assumed dogs would not be acceptable at this restaurant. We arrived at 830 when the restaurant was starting to slow down. We explained the unique situation to the hostess who asked the manager if we could bring our small dog in while we ate as long as she sat quietly by the table. The evening was perfect, food fantastic and couldn’t be more happy with the way the restaurant managed the situation and truly provided a great service experience. We’ll be back!

    The atmosphere is a bit clinical. We ordered the cesear salad and the goat cheese salad, both very good. Then three appetizers, the ribs, the octopus and a veggie breaded thing called simosa? These were all just fair. We were interested in the raw oysters but you only get FOUR for twenty dollars. That is way overpriced. My wine was good but they could not make a long island for my husband. Something to do with it being a specific valentines weekend menu, even though we weren't there on valentines day. Would rather have had their normal menu. Anyway, the whole experience was just nothing to write home about. Our server was very good I must say. Don't remember his name unfortunately.

    It had been a while, before the pandemic, Since I was last at Truffles. It was just as exceptional as I recalled. The small bar area was pretty lively even at 6 PM. Really outstanding chef here, and he’s always trying new things. The Kumamoto oysters were fabulous. I tried the skate, why not when am I ever going to have that? Might not do it again but it was very enjoyable. Everything on the plate was great. I don’t know how they prepare the brussels sprouts but they were amazing. The Indiana duck breast, maybe slightly overcooked, but delicious. You can count on Mark always having an amazing wine selection and great recommendations. Had the HGIII proprietary blend, Napa red, And highly recommend it. The pistachio cheesecake is to die for.

    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.
