We sat in the far section of the restaurant. Service was so bad we rarely saw the waiter. Finally after 45 minutes we asked about our dinner. The waiter had failed to place the order. This was the second time we had been seated there and have had bad service though not as bad as this final visit.

We tried everything to accommodate her. We were busy and are sorry that she was furious with us for having to wait for a table. We kept apologizing throughout the night and even bought her and her parent's dinner. We suggest that in the future, when time is an issue that she make a reservation. We hope that she will... More

We were actually visiting Sea Pines from another resort for the Preserve and Harbour Town. Truffles was on the trolley stop and we needed somewhere for lunch. I was pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices, and all of our meals were wonderful!

Went with a group of 7. After we were seated, no server was assigned to our table and we were there for about 10 minutes before someone came to the table. I overheard the owner/manager get on someone about this, and then we had 3 different servers come to our table, none of them were aware of the others. The... More

Food is good with a good variety of dishes. Meatloaf and coconut shrimp are our favorites. Good selection of beer and cocktails

We chose Truffles for the last meal of a group who had met a weekend a month for 9 months and it was the Perfect place for our Celebratory Goodbye. The atmosphere was perfect on this Sunday evening, the 6 of us could hear each other with ease and grace. The menu was varied for each person's taste buds. The... More

Was looking forward to eating at Truffles and found it less than we were hoping for. The grilled tuna was beyond well done; the mashed potatoes were heated up and had that dried out crust on the outside (and were completely tasteless). Same was true for the fish of day. The restaurant pushes you through, even though there was plenty... More

We were trying to find a spot that could accommodate 8 people and they were able to get us in right away. The drinks were good, the inside was clean, the wait staff were friendly and the food was wonderful and reasonably priced. The French onion soup and tomato bisque are delicious and for an entree I recommend the crab... More

We've eaten at Truffles twice in the past four months. Both experiences were the same. The food is quite good. My husband gets the pesto shrimp over pasta each time and enjoys it. I tend to order the fresh fish, which is simple, but well prepared. The problem is the service, which is utterly lacking. In January, it was just... More

Just love eating at Truffles Cafe when we are on the island. Love the refined yet funky ambiance of the restaurant and the easy access within SeaPines when we stay there. Food is always unique and delicious. Great beer, wine and cocktail choices as well! Their crab cakes are the BEST on the island!
