A Friendly local restaurant, frequented by natives and is not pretentious but offers good service, good food and good drinks. Just a relaxing well priced place to hang out and spend time with people

In my opinion, this is THE best place for a good meal most every time in Bloomington. Yes, it's a bit out of the way, near East Side Kroger, but making the trek is worth the extra effort. For a start parking is free. Delicious cocktails, half price Thursdays. Fresh fish, duck and pasta dishes, served with imaginative sides and... More

We have not returned here for a long time since we were charged double for iced tea when the waitstaff asked if we wanted a refill. I ordered Icelandic Cod which was $28. for a serving which was a little larger than a palm size selection of cod on top of the same amount of mashed potatoes which were nicely... More

Four of us visited Truffles for a birthday dinner, hoping for a fun evening of fine dining and drinking. We started out with some drinks, and the birthday girl chose a fruity beer on tap. The waitress returned with a glass of foam and said "the keg blew but I won't charge you for the beer." No problem. We shared... More

We eat at Truffles/56 Degree maybe once a month. Great wine, and we always get the filet off the bar menu. Tonight we branched out and ordered off the regular menu - John had the pork and I had the chicken. Our dinners were perfectly prepared, the accompaniments well chosen, and at what I consider to be a fair market... More

Dinner at Truffles is a special treat. The menu is creative and very vegetarian-friendly. The ambiance is a bit noisy, as people in the bar area tend to be loud and the noise filters up to the dining area. Wait staff are generally attentive, though not necessarily knowledgeable about the details of menu items nor about wine pairings.

This place has been our go-to favorite for years - the most reliably delicious restaurant with a full bar since Limestone closed a few years ago. HOWEVER... ever since the bar/front manager left to go to C3, the service has gone steadily downhill. Tonight was the worst - the straw has officially broken the camel's back. 25 minutes to get...

This is a great restaurant for high end eating (with small portions - but very nice quality) and drinks. Great place for parties or a girls night out. Did I say expensive? Yes. Lots of places to sit and to have a party. Good for privacy.

We had a throughly enjoyable meal at Truffles to celebrate our anniversary. I had a most delicious grilled peach salad and my cobia was cooked perfectly. It doesn't happen to be my favorite fish but now I know that. My husbands filet was one of the best he has ever had. The only downer was the melon, mango soup he... More
