Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - Ft. Lauderdale
truluckDinner was a rea treat on MOther's day at Trulucks. We had a fantastic waiter Adam, who advised us with great expertise. All that he suggested were five star.
We of course began with Florida stone crabs, then all 3 of us choose different salads. My daughter the wedge, I the mixed greens with pecans, and my husband the Cesear, One was better than the next. I thin the WEDGE was the winner in the salad field.
Jen had the South African Lobstre tail, I the Sea Bass, and my husband the blacken fish Poncitraine.
What wouold dinner on mother's day be with out the OVER THE TOP CHOCOLATE cake. Coffee was frest was the perfect end to an outstanding meal.
Ask for ADAM He is the best.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing DinnerI fell in love with this restaurant! Everyone from the hostess, servers and etc made us feel like royalty and welcomed! Will definitely be going back!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe total package.The service and attention we received made it a very special night. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted warmly and even the manager came by to congratulate us on 25 years of marriage. This was a nice touch.
Our waiter Adam recommended some excellent dishes and I am glad we followed his suggestions. We had a cozy table and there was a piano player with good music creating a festive atmosphere.
The sea bass was superb and a special desert was presented with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. Truluck's called the following day to make sure we had a nice evening and we were pleased. WOW, this is a first! The least I could do was acknowledge the superb effort. My compliments to the staff at Truluck's.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AM8Th Anniversary DinnerI decided to surprise my wife for our 8th anniversary so I selected Truluck'e. We had been to the restaurant once a few years ago and it was excellent, so I figured I'd give it another shot. I made the reservation with ease through OpenTable. We got there earliy, but they took us right in. Our server, Alissa was awesome !! She was an absolute pleasure and made the evening enjoyable and fun. Dinner was excellent, the ribeye was cooked perfectly and my wife's Sea Bass was tasty and perfectly cooked. The dessert menu was CRAZY, the carrot cake was amazing and the chocolate bag (I believe that was the name) was incredible. Truluck's topped off the evening with a surprise anaversary dessert (so we took the ones we ordered home).5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMtable locationOur table was in a room with communication but separated from the main restaurant
making you feel outside the main room. Is the only negative thing.

Pricey dinner but worth it. How many times do you celebrate 25 years?5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional ExperienceMy husband and I celebrated his birthday and sat outside for one of the more enjoyable evenings during our vacation.

restaurant is very noisy4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect withEverything was perfect with the exception of the live entertainment being WAY too loud at 7 pm....he was playing at a volume only heard in bars and lounges after 10 pm! It made it difficult to carry on a conversation with the friends in the bar area and we decided to move to our table for more comfort. Also, the kitchen did make a slight goof up on my friend's and my orders, but was quickly resolved by our waiter. It was the first visit for our friends and they were quite delighted with their experience, too!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful restaurant....foodwonderful restaurant....food is excellent....
personalized service by Lewis4/20/2013 12:00:00 AM5 stars all the way! I was5 stars all the way! I was bit surprised by the mall location, but this does not take away from it at all. Truluck's is beautifully decorated- modern and understated.
Our waiter, David, was fantastic, offering excellent input on Truluck's extensive and impressive wine list. His recommendation was spot-on for the wine as well as the meal itself.
The presentation of the meal was beautiful and only to be outdone by the taste. I also appreciate Truluck's commitment to sustainable ingredients.
If you're looking for a great adult evening with quality food, excellent wine and outstanding service, this is the place to be.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent.Everything was excellent.

Overall, a great experience!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing RestaurantThis place is amazing. We were seated promptly and our server was outstanding. She explained the menu to us and was very helpful. The manager came by and gave us her card so we could contact her later if we needed to. The food was delicious and I had possibly the best New York Strip steak in my life. It was my girlfriend's birthday and they brought us a cake and a card signed by the staff. The next day the restaurant called us to see how we liked it and even asked if my girlfriend had a nice birthday. They really seemed to care there and I would go back in a heartbeat.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a bucket list experienceThe food was absolutely amazing. Put this restaurant on your bucket list. I had the Chilean Sea Bass on a bed of crab fried rice. One of the most memorable dishes ever. Trulucks is a must on one's dining list. The restaurant even called the next day to ask about our experience.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe king crab is not to beThe king crab is not to be missed. The raw oysters were outstanding. The Service and food were excellent; we sat under a speaker outdoors where the music was rather loud, but before we could ask, a waiter asked us if it was too cloud and he lowered the volume.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceWe had a fantastic experience and incredible food. We enjoyed our dinner experience so much that we went back the very next day.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest SangriaAs always Trulucks did not disappoint. Great food, great wine and great service. Love the sangria, the best anywhere. It is the best place for stone crab claws too.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale and cozyLoved the friendly and attentive service from the moment we walked in the door. I think that really made the experience memorable. Food and drinks were all perfect. Loved the entertainment. Wonderful night out. Will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch seafoodThe seafood here is top notch. We had the spicy and crunchy shrimp appetizer; fresh and crisp followed by the rainbow tower tartare, which if you like sashimi, you'll love this. The bread with walnuts (or pumpkin seeds) was warm and comforting. I had the spicy halibut, which was spicy even for me and I can tolerate most spicy heat; it was delicious, though. Hubby had seared sesame tuna, which is also a sashimi lover's delight. The sesame gives it a toasted, nutty flavor that complements the cool flesh. I had the Spain vs. Italy wine flight. What a deal: 4 glasses at the price of two, and you savor more. Key lime pie, my favorite dessert, was the tartest I've ever had, but still every bite mouthwatering. Live piano bar music to boot.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely loved the food!Absolutely loved the food! The experience was AWESOME!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply PerfectSimply perfect. We took our adult son to dinner for his birthday. Terrific appetizers - seafood tartare tower, oysters and salt and pepper calamari. Superb salads - we had the Caesar and the wedge. Entrees grilled halibut, trout and Japanese Hiramasa. All perfectly prepared and enhanced by friendly, timely and unobtrusive service in a beautiful setting. Might be the best managed large format restaurant we have ever visited.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and greatExcellent service and great food.

Attentive service and fabulous food, from the oysters and stone crab claws to the entrees, which were delicious. The food was presented well and in ample portions. Live music at the bar was no problem for us and I am sure very enjoyable for those sitting closer. We will definitely return on our next visit to Ft. Lauderdale.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood choice for steak and outdoor dVery good but nothing much different than the standard in their class such as Capital Grill or Ruth Chris. Nightly entertainment is a nice touch as is the Wednesday wine specials4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMStone CrabsThe "all you can eat stone crabs"on Mondays is the best.

The food was fantastic and the service friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered the Ceasar Salad to start, the Miso Glazed Sea Bass and Pan Seared Grouper as our entrees and finished with carrot cake (that was large enough for 3 people) and "Chocolate Bag" desserts, needless to say we went home with dessert doggy bags!. Choclate Bag is a hollow dark chocolate shell in the shape of a 8-9" tall bag, filled with pieces of pound cake & cream, topped with more cream, & berries...almost too pretty to break into but absolutely delicious once you do!!!
