Steaks and lamb chops are great. Most of meals are not exactly what I ordered. They need to pay attention to that. If this does become more of a bar place I won't be coming back.

When Truth first opened several years ago, it was like a breath of fresh air on the local restaurant scene. The atmosphere and menu were both slanted toward females, but it still offered meat and potatoes for "team testosterone." After a recent business lunch visit, it appears this breath of fresh air has a breathing problem. It wasn't a bad... More

Joliet isn't exactly a hot spot for dining. So Truth is a rare gem for this area. We dine here with friends and often time our meal to coordinate with a performance by Nova Soul, a wonderful quartet which plays during and after the meal. The menu has an excellent variety and the food and service are very good. I... More

A great restaurant, all the dishes show great preparation and flavor. The menu changes, so there is always something new to taste.

We have dined here several times over the past few years. Always a first class experience. Glad to see the dining room remodeled- lighter & brighter interior, but not as charming as before the remodel. Excellent server Jason. Good dinner salads. We ordered seafood cannelloni and lobster mac & cheese. Both entrees delicious. New to the dessert menu are cupcakes... More

It had been a while and we often forget about this intimate little place with great food and service. We were not disappointed. It was fabulous as usual/and reasonable portions and prices too! A very pleasant server and attentive staff made the trip even more enjoyable. A hidden gem worth discovering!

We came here thru a recommendation from some friends. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is very downtown~ish. Completely surprised at how well done it was decorated. The menu would be pleasing to most and had something for everyone. Nice wine list and desserts. Would we go back, well, yes we would!

The restaurant managed a party of thirty (plus) with ease during a very busy time. The variety of dishes was excellent and fresh.

It is 2 blocks from my home; so I walk to Truth. I was with a friend and we both enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. It is a quaint restaurant on the corner of Raynor Ave. and Jefferson Street. It is great to have this treasure right in the neighborhood. Service was excellent and the food was very good.... More
