We've been frequenting the Pope Avenue Truffles ever since its opening, having experienced Truffles on Sea Pines for many years prior to that. The menu, while not extensive, should have a selection to match everyone's appetite. Two menu items that need to be praised are the tomato basil soup and the crab cakes. There is no visit we make when... More

We went based on the sophisticated appearance from their website. Were looking for a quite romantic experience. We were seated behind the bar - not what I was looking for. The menu was limited if you want seafood. We did have the special of the evening which was grouper w/ a Parmesan cheese sauce and grilled shrimp skewer. Both were... More

Nice food. But the experience was OK, not great. We had great service, but came away thinking "ho, har, hum, well that was OK"

Service was poor, food not much better. Don't waste your time going with so many good restaurants to choose from. The final straw was when we thought we hadn't received the correct change from our bill only to learn that they had automatically taken their tip! We got the right change in the end, tipped as we wanted too and... More

The atmosphere is a nice casual. Our party of 4 were seated in what I would consider a part of the bar. From the start the staff was attentive and the food was delicious. 2 of us had the New Orleans shrimp. One had mango salmon and the fourth had another fish dish (not sure which). Everyone was very pleased... More

We wish we could like Truffles but it always seems to fail to impress. Our meal came without the salad as they forgot it on the counter and a drink we ordered was late to come for the same reason as well. Appetizers were sort of bland (salsa and artichoke dip) and the tuna was drowning in teriyaki sauce. All... More

Just came back from a great dinner at Truffles Cafe with the kids. This was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is nice and offers a quite environment - very comfortable. The best is the service : very child friendly and very accommodating to make your visit worthwhile. You get honest and good food - a bit more expensive then... More

We didn't have plans for dinner one night and just happened to come across this gem. We sat outside on the covered patio that was comfortably decorated and had dinner. We were so pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the food and the specialty drinks. There were 6 people in our party and every single one of us raved... More

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
