There was no mention that there was going to be a special Valentines menu and of course the items I planned on ordering were not even available. After deciding to try the other items I found none of it to be properly seasoned. Each course took a long time to get to the table even though when I arrived the restaurant wasn’t busy.

You was at this restaurant 5 years ago and the food was phenomenal. My food was cold in middle as if it was microwaved. My main course meat was tough to chew and again tasted microwaved. Not a recommendation from me nor will I go there again. Something happened in the turnover since I was there last. I was so disappointed. 🙁

Been coming here on a regular basis for the past six months. The food is never disappointing and the specials constantly change. The Butternut Squash Soup (Soup of the Day) is excellent. The Seafood Entrees are great - no matter what you choose. The restaurant can be lively at times when they have a large party - but it's very overly noisy. The staff is very attentive - and welcoming. Great local place in Valley Stream.

Absolutely amazing food. We were heading back to CT and needed to grab dinner before starting our journey. It was a Thursday evening but the restaurant was hopping. We started with the butternut squash soup which was outstanding! I wish I didn’t wait this long to write review but I had the branzino which was flawless can’t remember what my mom had. Chef came out and checked in with every table. The team really hustled to ensure everyone was having an exceptional experience. Even though we are all the way in Litchfield County CT my hubby wants us to make a trip to experience this hidden gem.
Can’t wait to revisit🤗

I was very excited to try this restaurant for my husbands recent birthday, the pictures online looked amazing and the restaurant had a lot of positive reviews on Yelp. We started with a Caesar salad and house special Butternut squash soup. The waitress was very accommodating of my husbands request for anchovies to be added to his salad. However, he said the salad wasn't really anything special but the anchovies made the taste much better. My soup was actually rather bland, I had to add salt and pepper every few spoonfuls to taste any flavor and it still was lacking that famous butternut squash taste. Needless to say it was disappointing. Our main courses though were very appetizing (Duck and Short Ribs). My low rating score is due to the fact that when the bill came I noticed a $5 sharing fee for the truffle fries my husband ordered along with his duck. I did see the sharing fee mentioned on the menu but thought it was for the main courses as I can some what rationalize a sharing fee on entrees since you want to make the most of each table dining and not have people share entrees. But a $5 fee to share an $8 side is absurd. Especially since my husband ordered the fries and I only had a few to taste. I wonder if the waitress waited to see if I had a fry before adding the charge or if it's automatically assumed when you only order 1 side (in addition to the sides that come with your entree) that it is shared? This small issue left a very bad impression on me for this restaurant and despite the tasty entree...the bland appetizers and sharing fee will probably keep me from coming back again.

It waS New Year’s Eve so it was fine. It was a fixed menu so not the usual menu with a lot of options. Usually the food was excellent but on New Years it was just ok. Most restaurants fall short on New Years so it was fine. It was a bit noisy and the staff was busy so not on top of everything where they usually are. Again, we tossed that up to New Year’s Eve. They were, as usual, very generous with the drinks and very nice. We will be happy to go back for a regular dinner. I still love this restaurant.

This is the second time in two weeks that we’ve eaten here. Amazing service and great food! Christopher was our waiter both times. He made our dinner even more special.
One of the better restaurants we’ve been to on Long Island. It’s truly a hidden gem!

Truffle is a gem. A great menu of well prepared food from start to finish. The staff is wonderful - very accommodating and attentive to everyone. It's a relaxed atmosphere that is good for a quiet meal or a business discussion. I've been here many times - and have never been disappointed by the food or service.

Thanksgiving dinner, The pre-fixed menu included soup salad entrée and dessert each course was excellent each person in our party loved their meals plenty of food to feel full yet, glad we were not overstuffed. Very happy this small local establishment was open on this day. Was a very good value and we did not feel rushed. Thanks to our server Kelly!

Another fabulous dinner at Truffle. Only regret is that this restaurant is so empty most nights. THe attention to details, allergies and requests, special occasions is par none. We mentioned the website and got free wine. They knew it was my birthday and treated me to my dessert. They honor the foodie card and even remember when it was used previously. Please try this neighborhood treat and keep it open.

The food was simple and incredibly flavorful. It was one of those dining experiences where you can taste each ingredient that was used. The customer service was fantastic, very friendly and attentive. The chef came out to greet diners - always a nice touch. My husband and I will definitely be going back.

This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant. I have had takeout about 6 or 7 times as well. The food is always so good. I doubt there is anything on the menu that is anything less than amazing. Even the cocktails are outstanding.
The place is small, reminds me of a large dining room in someone's home. I just think they should have some background music or something because you can literally hear a pin drop in this place. The place is very clean and modern. The entire staff is amazing, they seem obsessed with making sure you are enjoying everything which is really hard not do! The chef even walked by and said hello to us. My friend who has never heard of Truffles (the fungus not the restaurant) had a wonderful experience.

We love going to Truffles Restaurant in Valley Stream, New York. I ate eggplant stack appetizer and striped sea bass for my entree. We also had a delicious cauliflower side dish. The food was great (as always). The service was slow because there was only one waiter in the restaurant and there was a large party that had to attend to.

We will be back!
