Truffles is a very nice choice to take your special date for a romantic meal. The atmosphere is sophisticated with soft music in the back ground. The service was great, but I can see if you get there during the rush how things can get bogged down. It is like everyone wants to eat at 6:00pm, go earlier or later,... More

Truffles is handy for people staying around North Forest Beach. It's not far from Coligny Plaza and easy to access. It's also a bit more moderately priced than some of the higher end restaurants here. The food is good--try the coconut shrimp appetizer, which has a moist crunchy batter and really fresh shrimp that remarkably, haven't been overcooked in the... More

Eat two times while in Hilton head, waiter was knowledgeable and responsive. Food was brought out quickly. Sit outside at night for a relaxing atmosphere.

We have eaten at Truffles on a previous trip to HHI and had some excellent meals. We went back again twice on a recent visit and again, very much enjoyed the visit. The menu has numerous options for all kinds of tastes. A great option on HHI.

We went the day we arrived. The waitress made several mistakes with our order and only after asking 4 times did I get a diet coke. We ate much better for far less money at other establishments on the island. The decor and lighting was nice but that was all that was nice. The food was average and forgetable.

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...

Price B, Owner at Truffles Cafe Pope Avenue, responded to this review

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

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
