Great Atmosphere, Great Food

Bien Trucha remains one of our local favorites. It has a positive, upbeat atmosphere. Food is always great; flavors are unique and make our tastebuds smile. Service is quick. Drinks are right on par with the food. We have tried many other restaurants similar to this one, but they seem to miss... read more

Food and service are good here. Staff very friendly and helpful. My first time here and had high expectations having heard good comments in the past.

I always start out with the intention of just grabbing lunch, but always end up with a cab ride home. The food is out of this world. The flavors are so far away from what you come to expect from tacos that they are like tacos from mars-if mars were a wonderful warm place that fed you drinks and made... More

a favorite of my sister's family and they took us there for our anniversary dinner. We had a great time, four of us shared 5 plates and two sides. Great flavors, fun presentation and atmosphere (loud and festive really). Not sure how anybody really thinks $10/plate is really that expensive. they now have a second side to the restaurant that...

Been here 3 times and can't wait to go back! Great food and great service. Drinks are good too. They use fresh fruits and other fresh ingredients. Very tasty. Great place to share and try many different dishes. They don't take reservations... So sometimes you must wait. But it's worth it.

This is one of those places where you can have a fantastic, extremely flavorful meal while still eating (somewhat light). Be sure to try the salsa sampler and the side of roasted corn. The food is fantastic. Good margaritas as well. Don't be surprised with a long wait for a seat. Finally, if you don't like a loud environment, this... More

Dined there with two other couples. Seating ended up being good after dire warnings about how cramped we would be. For those that like margaritas this is a good place I am told. I like a different kind of alcohol and initially they did not have it but some was found in another part of restaurant. My friend wanteed scotch... More

Don't let the architecture fool you. Located in a nondescript building on a busy street, Bien Trucha is an incredibly upscale restaurant with a remarkable menu. Nominally a Mexican Restaurant, this one defies pigeon-holing. Absolutely everything that we tried was spectacular! Appetizers sound very mundane - Ceviche and a Guacamole dish. These were anything but mundane. For entrees, we focused... More

I went to Bien Trucha with a few friends and we had an great experience. The space is very small which I think provides a nice intimate ambiance. There were 4 of us and of course we started out with margarita's. All were craft style and freshly made with no mixes! I had the Don Lujo which is their modern... More

With friends went out for Dinner. Nice atmosphere in downtown Geneva. Clientele was mixed, young, middle aged and older crowd. It was very busy but expected as much for a Saturday night. The energy was good but not overly revved up so felt comfortable right a way. There was a wait, so went into the bar area which was a... More
