I continue to patronize this restaurant because the food is almost always very good, but the service and wait time is absolutely the worst! It took easily 20 minutes after we were seated for the waitress to bring us our drinks. Our meal was served another 25-30 minutes afterwards-and not all meals came out at the same time! Moreover, 2... More

This is our first trip to Hilton Head and Truffles was quite near where we were staying so we thought we would give it a try. Keeping in mind that HH has hundreds of restaurants to choose from and the competition is fierce. One thing that has surprised me with many of the restaurants here is that they have beautiful...

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. However I would like to make a few clarifications. Our "crappy plastic chairs" were imported from Italy and cost $250 each and our "plastic tables" are actually brushed stainless steel and also manufactured by the same Italian design firm. Two of our interior dining rooms do not feature televisions and... More

So loud the waiter was yelling across the table "what?" The bread was a dried up piece of white bread that had no taste And had the texture of a crouton. The shrimp is NOT lightly breaded and small. I also ordered the crab cakes. I will bet there was NO crab in that cake. Perhaps a lot of meal... More

If you're looking for a sleek, modern, dark, and cold a/c, ask for inside seating. Otherwise, opt to sit at the covered terrace with ceiling fans. While not the bargain that Truffles was years ago, the meatloaf dinner remains outstanding, the house salad is a la carte (but great and large), the bread/spread delicious, and the young servers are extremely...

Can always depend on a good meal! Nice, comfortable atmosphere. One of our "go-to" reliable restaurants anytime.

By far the best service we had the entire time we stayed on the island. The food was fantastic. This was the only restaurant we visited twice while on our trip and had a wonderful experience both times. They are one of a few restaurant's that will take reservations. We had a very large party and they accommodated us very... More

Truffles was always like that favorite pair of slippers. You knew what you wanted and you were always rewarded with a consistent, comfortable feeling. Notice I said past tense. We have been eating here for years and we have our menu favorites as we all do at one of our (former) favorite restaurants. We usually ate here at least three... More

I am sorry that you were disappointed with our most recent menu change. The Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwich is still available at our Belfair Town Village and Sea Pines locations. We served the Chicken Pasta New Orleans with linguini pasta for 20 years and upset a lot of our guests when we switched to penne. Thus, the switch back to... More

Six of us had dinner here on a Friday night. Reservations were easy to get, and the atmosphere was elegant, but relaxing. The wasabi tuna appetizer was delicious, wine prices quite reasonable and all our meals were very good. Definitely a place to visit while you are on the island.

Oft missed for other Coligny restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the menu, food, and service. Our appetizers were good and the Truffles signature dishes are recommended. Fair price for good quality, atmosphere, and service
