We ate here for the rehearsal dinner with wedding party. Atmosphere light crisp clean. The food was good. We had bruschetta for appetizer, salad and I had grouper for the entree. Others had the chicken piccata which they also enjoyed.. I did not try desert but was intrigued by the tiramisu cupcake or red velvet . A nice setting for... More

We stopped in Joliet on our way elsewhere. The clerk at the inn gave me a depressing list of area sit-down restaurants (Golden Corral, Bob Evans, etc.). Thankfully, Yelp had a nice list of other options, including Truth. We almost drove past it on Jefferson (it's right before the street bends to the left). The staff was incredibly friendly! The...

There food is very good but not worth the cost. Your paying for the atmosphere of a little corner Bistro with no parking. I would rather eat some pasta at home.

We were invited by friends as a rotating dinner get together... Getting there took over 40min. and we actually drove past the place before we noticed it..... Parking is at a premium... and small parking are in back or down the street two blocks is where we parked... Truth is somewhat small and clean... not a bad combination. Drinks and... More

When I'm in town, Truth is where I go for great food, amazing cocktails, and the people. The filet melts in your mouth, the pot roast is tender, the homemade soups are delicious. The drinks are also awesome especially the martinis. If you like blue cheese-stuffed olives, Truth hand-stuffs theirs. What makes Truth really special is the owner Kate and... More

If you ever find yourself near Joliet, please stop and enjoy Truth. It is the best place around. From drinks, to apps, to a full on dinner...you cant touch another spot for the freshest ingredients, and perfectly wonderful seasonal options.

This restaurant was probably a big deal back in the day, but now it's a sad relic. The interior is somewhat dingy in appearance (although clean), with a ceiling that looks like it might drop down on diners at any minutes. There is no front entrance—entry is from the back, which is odd for a restaurant. Seen from the expansive... More

The Truth might have been a great restaurant back in time but now its a modern mishap. The inside is dark you can't see the food you are served. The walls are dengy could use a fresh coat of paint. The dishes are old and needs to be replaced..The candle and white table cloth are a nice touch but thats... More

White table clothes, cozy little dining room. Food was prepared and presented like a Chicago Loop restaurant. Soups are excellent. Have been many times for lunch on business. Food is always great and atmosphere is professional, so you can talk.
