“Nothing Special”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We have visited Hilton Head for many, many years, but had yet to try Truffles Cafe. We eat out most nights while on vacation and enjoy many good restaurants that Hilton Head has to offer. However, Truffles Grill is one we won't be going back to. The prices are a little lower than other restaurants on the island, but the service, food and atmosphere were disappointing. Obviously, others do like it as the place was quite busy. We had reservations but were seated in the bar area, and our server couldn't keep up with his tables. We ordered wine, but even being in the bar area, had a very long wait both times we ordered a glass of wine. It was quite noisy too. We had the mahi mahi and salmon, both with overpowering toppings. Nothing "wowed" us. After our plates were cleared the waiter showed back up and dropped the check off, without offering us dessert or coffee. Guess he was in a hurry. There are too many other great restaurants for just a few dollars more so we'll skip Truffles in the future.

“Good evening”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Service and food was very good. One of the few places that really offered a true grilled piece of seafood. Atmosphere was relaxing, had a nice time. Pricing very reasonable. Would go back!

“Left to get for "Self"”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had to reserve a table in advanced. We requested a 7pm reservation at the table near the window. However, when we arrived the table we reserved was taken by a group of individuals that just walked in. The lady that sat them at our table did not realize the table was reserved. Our Host was very upset that she had given our table away. We ended up sitting at a booth. Waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and offered to get our drinks. 15 minutes later, she comes back to the table and asks us where our drinks are. She apologized and said, "They were supposed to bring those out". She did the same thing with some sauce i ordered for my steak. Only this time i had to walk over to the kitchen area and request one. I thought it was going to be a great dining experience, I left feeling like, we tried to hard to get serve. "Even in sitting with reservations".
