The food was quite good. Our server was friendly, but played upon one of my pet peeves. When I ask someone what their favorite items are on the menu and they tell me what the most popular items on the menu are… That sounds to me like they just don’t eat there or don’t like any of the food.

Food was great and great atmosphere inside too. Good mix of meal options, and our food tasted amazing. Unfortunately, our server wasn’t the best and was very slow to return to our table. I would return.

Unfortunately, I have to say that we are very disappointed at our most recent visit. We have been to the restaurant a few times since they opened and enjoyed it and we even introduced the restaurant to some friends. On 5/29/21, when we arrived at Truva, they told us there was no outside seating available even though we had specifically requested and confirmed that at the time of a reservation about three weeks ago and there were obviously some tables without any guests in their patio. After we pointed it out, they reluctantly arranged a table. Our dishes were okay but this recent experience definitely keeps us from going back again...

Dinner after the “Supernatural” exhibit at the ATL Botanical Gardens, our Uber driver was a little late so we called to alert; no problem! They adjusted our time and we maintained our outdoor seating request, arriving at 7:45 pm. They were busy but not crowded. Within 15 minutes every table was full. We shared the beets and burratta meze which everyone loved, even my friend who had never eaten beets. Two of us shared the octopus hot meze which one of us had never had octopus. I’d say it was cooked to perfection but we didn’t feel strongly about it one way or the other flavor wise. For entrees, one had the quinoa bowl, she’s a very light eater and this time, the plate was clean. “Mikey liked it!” Two of us had the vegetarian mousses and it was very good; we both took some leftovers home. Service was a little slaw sometimes but our friendly waitress was very accommodating and proactively apologized, acknowledging they are still short staffed as they recover from COVID issues. Unique and fun cocktails if you like changing things up. This was my second time at Truva, first for lunch and this visit was dinner. Nice outdoor seating area. We were tucked in a corner, table for 4 and it was perfect for me as I have hearing issues and I was able to sit with my back to the wall which helps lower the ambient noise. I’ll go back when in the area.

There were minor hiccups which made this an OK but not great experience. When we arrived, we waited about 7-8 minutes for anyone to greet us, and then the manager couldn't find our reservation (I showed him the confirmation on my phone). Then no waiter was assigned to our table for 15 minutes. The outdoor light over our table flickered.

The food is fine, but extremely pricey for what you get. Honestly, I'd be just as happy with the kebabs at Mediterranean Grill for 1/3 the price.

TOOO Loud ! Great food but need some acoustic absorption! Unusually poor service - server had TWO large parties and ALL other tables in the back. Would have ordered more dirns and maybe desert is better service and not so loud.
Do love the food and hope they can resolve thee two mitigating issues. Def prefer the bar for now -- yes its always much quieter and great service.

This was our 4th or 5th time eating at Truva over the past couple of years, and each time we've had a truly great experience. When we were there over the weekend that just ended, the orders were plentiful as they always had been, the appetizers and entrees were absolutely wonderful, and so was the wine. We experimented with a Turkish red that was on the wine list, as we hadn't ever had a wine from this country. It was blend of grapes, some of which we hadn't known of before, and it was superb -- it turned out to be a very nice pairing with our meal. That wine list, by the way, is rather extensive and is impressive. Truva has made each of our dining experiences feel like a special occasion, even when we're there just for a night out and not for marking a birthday or any other such annual event. This is a well-run business. The manager/owner has always been there, dressed in a coat and tie, visiting tables, and making sure that everything is running smoothly. He doesn't do this in an officious, off-putting way, but in a professional, quiet manner. As with every time before, we greatly look forward to our next time at Truva.

Wow ! Truva may be the best Mediterranean/Turkish restaurant I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to quite a few. The service was absolutely wonderful and the selection and quality of the food was exquisite. If I lived in Atlanta I would eat here often. There are a lot of great restaurants here but this is one of my favorites. Highly recommend!!!
