Went here on a busy evening with a reservation. We were promptly seated and our waiter (who will be attending grad school near us, cool!) explained the menu. I ordered a lobster cake appetizer and the grouper which he recommended for dinner--I must admit I'm a grouper virgin. The ambience for dinner was pretty dark but, as another reviewer said, chic.

The lobster app came out fairly quickly, and was very good. I will admit again, lobster virgin too. I'd probably get it as an app again but not en entree--a bit too dense to have 2 or 3. The parmesan glazed grouper came out shortly after, and was delicious. It wasn't fishy at all, and it was light and packed a good flavor. The mashed potatoes were good, and the green beans were excellent as well. My dad enjoyed his fried shrimp, and mom and sister didn't love their bland pasta.

Service was very good--our waiter was personable and attentive. Prices were pricey but fair for what was served. I'd definitely go back again.

Went to Hilton Head for our weeks vacation. Made a reservation at Truffles for my birthday.
The food was excellent, service good and we were glad we were inside. The outside area is very informal and we wanted a little nicer. The inside is a little dark to see the menu and the view of the outside seating area from the inside needs to be fixed. But these items are minor and we were there for the great food. Everyone enjoyed it! I had a great birthday at Truffles! Go there when on HHI.

The service and food was excellent. We ate at 7 restaurants and this was by far the best one during this visit.

Truffles has become a family tradition in HHI. A local friend recommended the Sea Pines location many years ago. Our 3 daughters were toddlers then and enjoyed the experience. We were happy to see their expansion and started going to this location 3 years ago. The staff is now knowledgeable and well trained. The new menu has great additions across the board and is still a great value for the price. Our girls are now between high school and college and continue to like Truffles.

So glad we were seated outdoors! The space is lovely and feels a bit more casual than inside. Great for the kids. We had the Chipotle Chicken and Chicken Pot Pie. Both were delicious. Be prepared to spend $10 for a kids meal. (Drink not included) My kiddos all got the grilled chicken breast which ended up being a double chicken breast! We definitely could have shared those puppies!! Service was fine but drinks were never refilled. Overall a nice, relaxing and tasty meal.
