Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - Boca Raton
FATHER'S DAY DINNEROne of our daughters took my wife and me to dinner at Trulucks on Saturday night for a wonderful dinner. The table was ready when we arrived, the staff was very welcoming.
We really enjoy being near the music, it adds a certain liveliness to the evening without blocking out conversation.
The food was outrageously good, we all had something different; the desert was over the top good.
This was our second time at Trulucks in Boca Raton and we will be back!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMusic was the downsideThe music was a bit cheesy and loud even in the dinning area... They were playing all night.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is the BESTWhy eat anywhere else when Trulucks is available? It is the best of Boca. We went with friends and are returning next week. We thought about going elsewhere but decided this restaurant is so outstanding, why not return. The food and service are great, and the manager, Bart, takes a personal interest in each diner - the music is a wonderful addition.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceEnjoyed the foood, service, and atmosphere....highly recommend this enjoyable restaurant. Managers are always visable and check to make sure all is perfect.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!fabulous food. fabulous service. a must if you live in the area or are visiting! We will be back!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Dining ExperienceEnticing varied menu with flawless execution and particularly great sauces to accompany choices. Excellent service by Sabrina who provideed good suggestions and has a very pleasant manner. Manager Greg ensured wonderful dining experience with two visits to our table. Pacing of meal was spot on with all dishes arriving directly after preparation (nothing had been held under a heat lamp) Lovely ambiance with comfortable leather booths, low lights and live piano music in the background from the pianist in the bar area. Outdoor tables are a good choice as well if the weather cooperates. Choice of either a white or a black napkin on table for each diner shows great attention to detail. Awesome desserts! We look forward to visiting again soon.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTruluck'sFirst time we have been there and were very pleased. Food was excellent. Service was a touch slow but not bad.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to celebrate a birthday.We went to celebrate a birthday. We ordered a glass of wine and the waiter said today was a special day and for the cost of two glasses we can have a bottle which was great. Good wine list. The sea bass and grouper dishes were great and the service was timed perfectly. Since we were celebrating a birthday the manager cam over and asked if everything was to our satisfaction and comped us a delicious desert. Nice atmosphere and good service. I will definitely return.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNot seated fast enoughWaitress tried- she was nice- couple across from us (2) knew each other and were somewhat rude with their conversations and noise level (that's a Boca issue not a restaurant issue). When we entered we had to wait longer than usual to be seated- when passing the piano- the singer didn't even attempt a welcoming eye contact...
The food was good but I did have to make suggestions to the chef via the waitress- offer sauces on the side.
They remembered our occasion- that was nice. 4 out of 5 stars, but did not make it to our new "favorite" spot, but did make top 15.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Average ServiceThe Food quality was good. The service however had room to improve, the waitress we had had an indifferent attitude, my out of town guests mentioned couple times " No wonder, this is south Florida" She was not rude, just not nice, did the job, and that's about it. For the price the restaurant charges, they should really train their waiters and waitresses to go one step further, a little more niceness and warmth won't hurt anyone.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMUSIC GRATING/ FIILET GREAT.FOOD & SERVICE OUTSTANDING
ELEGANT EXCEPT FOR MUSIC WHICH WAS HARSH AT HAPPY HOUR.
MUSIC WAS SOFTER LATER ON.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for allCelebrated my husband's birthday there with family of all ages-

Definitely going back soon & recommending to everyone I know!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a special occasion.Great for a special occasion. Good variety but be prepared to pay for it. Terrific wine list too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Step Up From What You're Used To!When you dine here, it's OK to have high expectations, after all, you're paying for it! I've been here twice now, and while my visits are usually a few years apart, I do that for a very important reason: I like to keep this place special. The food is excellent and the service is above and beyond each and every time. We dined outside both times, so I cannot comment on how things are inside, but I would expect the mood to be on the peaceful side. I will definitely dine inside next time just for the experience. The staff is friendly and they'll even call you the next day just to make sure you had a pleasant experience! I'll be back in a few years for sure; there's no doubt this place will still exist.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fresh, deliciousFood was fresh, delicious and artfully presented. Both the mussels and snow crab claws were high quality and delicious. Our server was pleasant and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great foodWe have been here several times. Over the last two years the resturant has gotten better, the food is excellent, and the service is excellent. I have not been disappionted. I think it is for seafood number one in Boca Raton5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday letdownAlthough food and service were terrific, I was let down by the management's lack of a birthday acknowledgement. In my reservation I indicated it was a special occasion ( my daughters birthday ). Additionally I reminded restaurant staff during their "call ahead" but there was no acknowledgement of the birthday by waitstaff or management.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was superb!!Food was delicious, Service was top-notch, and the restaurant was beautiful! We sat inside and were seated immediately upon checking in with the friendly hostess. Our waiter, Randy, was awesome! Our glasses were never empty, his recommendations were excellent, and he surprised us with an anniversary dessert, which was incredible! We will definitely come back to this restaurant and we will highly recommend to our family and friends! Thanks for a great meal and a wonderful evening!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh-End DiningExcellent service

Grest place for a special occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it- don't miss it!You just can't go wrong with Trulucks!!!! Always consistently excellent food and service. I can't think of another place we rate highly that has this level of service. Where else do you go to eat that calls the next day to see if your experience lived up to expectations?4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAll was perfect until fireAll was perfect until fire alarms went off and we could not take the noise so we missed dessert. Food was excellent, our waiter Ozzy was very attentive. We will be back......for dessert!!!!! For sure!!!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at the BocaOur first time at the Boca location. Everything about our dining experience was great. They made every effort to make sure our experience was unique.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHave dined here several timesHave dined here several times over the past few years, usually on special occasions, because of the expense. I have always been berry happy with my experience. Unfortunately I have to agree with the food critic from the sun sentinel. The physical plan is still great but our order was lost so our meal was delayed. The waiter apologized and upgraded our desert. The trout I ate, , although good, was not excellent as in the past. It was my birthday as I noted on my reservation, but noone mentioned this or put a candle on the cake we ordered. I have always received a followup call the day after to get feedback, but am still waiting. I hate to see this restaurant decline. Shape up!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner and a Set Up!This was the best meal we have had there it some time. Everything was just a little bit better. I had the filet which was improved over the previous time. My wife had the seabass which was fantastic. The crab was great as always. Nice job.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notchexcellent food and our waiter "bobby" was the most professional server we have ever had4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMfeels like a special occasionFor us, this is a special occasion restaurant. Enjoy the privacy of the booths. Love the knife and fork caesar salad and the simply grilled salmon. Pricey, but the service makes us feel like this is a special evening. Appreciate the follow up phone call the next day to make sure we liked the experience.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Trulucks!This was my third time to Trulucks. I usually go for the stone crabs but this time I had the Alaskan King Crab legs. It was enormous, sweet, tender - better than lobster or any other crab I have ever had. Service was outstanding. If I even hinted that anything was not simply perfect, the staff was tripping over themselves to make it better. My companion had the filet and he loved it. Cooked to perfection, simple and delicious. I can't wait to go back again.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful EveningThe food was fantastic; my girlfriend ordered the Maine Lobster and I had the Filet Dynamite special... both were out of this world. Our server mark was very nice and VERY knowledgeable about the menu plus we got chocolate bread pudding for her birthday for dessert where they lit the plate on fire! great dinner experience!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good restaurant, butVery good restaurant, but a bit too pricey. Not kid friendly.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA reason to returnHad a great meal. The lobster bisque was well prepared as was the caesar salad. The tuna was perfect as well as the other fish. The 7oz filet mignon was charred on the outside and between medium rare and medium. The asparagus bernaise, sechuan string beans and sautéed spinach were superb. The garlic mashed potatoes were very good as well. The wine price was on the high side for the same winery and vintage reserve wine we drink. . Service was attentive, professional and not in your face which was the cap of a very fine experience at Truluck's.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great choiceWe thought hard as to where we would go for dinner with our out of town house guests. When they mentioned fish, I immediately thought of Truluck's. Although their menu has far more than fish, past experience made me think this would be a good choice. Was it ever! We had stone crabs as an appetizer and, well, there is just no reason for us to drive to Miami Beach and go to Joe's again. They were just as good - including the mustard. Our salads, main courses (we all got something different) were among the best ever. And the carrot cake for desert was hands down the best ever - anywhere. Thanks, Mark, for suggesting it. Mark, BTW, was our super server who was so helpful in ordering and, well, simply couldn't do enough for us.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTrulucks is totally special.Trulucks is totally special. The delicious food and outstanding service (Shannon is great) from the beginning to the end make it a special experience. The manager, Bart, always stops by and the ambiance with the piano player and singer add to why it is so wonderful!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter John was wonderful,Waiter John was wonderful, stone crabs nice and fresh! Had a great time! Will go back, mizner park, boca raton4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTop shelfLove it... Expensive but you get what you pay for...... Great food , wines..... The service is outstanding !3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were here to celebrateWe were here to celebrate Easter and was surprise to find a date night menu for $39. Service and food was excellent and so was the ambiance will live piano and classical jazz and pop favorites. Will definitely be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice eveningTruluck's marketing techniques are truly great. Using Open Table is always a good idea since restaurants' reservations can be made on line. Truluck's has a nice web page so we could view the menu BEFORE arriving. We ate inside, and the nice thing was that the space between tables was generous, so we weren't talking above the next table's conversation. Our waiter was attentive to start, and our meal came without a long wait. Service throughout the meal lagged a bit; we had to flag down waiters for additional butter, more stone crab sauce, and in the end, nobody thought to distribute a wet-nap for our hands after a big stone crab dinner. Not excusable in a restaurant of this caliber (and price). The food was absolutely delicious.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, a little priceyGreat food, beautiful presentation. A little pricey for portion size.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
