  • "The customer service was exceptional. If we had any issues, I believed it would have been addressed in a timely manner because there were two managers who stopped by the table to ensure everything was going well. The food was great, and I noted in in our reservation that it was our anniversary. So, they brought out our dessert with happy Anniversary written in chocolate."

  • "My experience at Trulucks was one of a kind ! From the hostess, Linda calling me ahead of time to confirm my reservation to askin me where I would prefer to seat. From the beginning I felt that she cared. The atmosphere of this location is so relaxing ! My waiter, Patricio was very informative on all the plate on the meal. He was so thoughtful & jut a pleasure to be around . The food was BEYOND amazing . From the presentation to the flavor combinations it was magnificent ! Some reviews of this restaurant noted the food was good but a bit pricey . I disagree, I believe the prices were fair because of the quality I received . I dined at Trulucks on a typical Sunday and I ended as a memorable event ! I WILL most definitely be dining here again"

Our server, Lori, was very knowledgeable, but not overbearing. We had a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived, even though it was prime time on a Saturday night."

  • "Atmosphere good. Prices high for what you get. $75 lobster tail not cooked properly. Management only asked 1 of our party of 6 (2 times) how everything was. Others did not have a change to give feedback. Noisy, hard to talk. Very slow service. Not overly attentive."

  • "My wife was beyond impressed. It was a special momment, a special accomplishment, 29 years of marriage. The staff did their homework. How? In making initial reservation online, I expressed concerns if my wife would be impressed, since this was (1) of many suprises I had planned for the next 3days. We started with Truluck!!! After the meal, the women hostess asked me privately if my wife was impressed because of my concerns that I mention online. You took the time to respond on concerns for that momment, you read my online concerns and acted accordingly. The meal was excellent and our waiter Todd went beyond. Went I will be come back, I'm a creature of habit, if Todd is not there , I'll make reservations when he is. Thank you !!!"

  • "It was my 13 year old son's birthday and he loves Alaskan king crab. The server, Mike, was excellent, the little birthday cake surprised him and the hostess, Linda, and manager, Tracy, are always present and add to the enjoyable experience. This is my favorite Truluck's despite the fact that my office is closer to the Boca Raton store. Also, the pianist/singer on Sunday night was just wonderful to hear."

As advertised, the blakened grouper was outstanding, as was the calamari beforehand. The chocolate tower dessert is beyond description and remarkably good. Looking forward to a return visit for another special occasion."

  • "Great steak and seafood restaurant. Atmosphere is a little dark but that keeps it romantic. Our waiter was very friendly and the food was awesome. Must have the lobster bisque."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went out for a nice moderately priced mid-week seafood dinner for my bday. Ft Lauderdale location has 1/2 off bottles of wine on Wed. Right away our server talked down to us when we asked for recommendations on wine from the special list. After telling him some wines we like he couldn't recommend a single wine from that list, but had no problem recommending non-sale btls. The food was average & extremely overpriced & took a long time (2+ hours). The lobster bisque tasted like a bowl of butter with one small piece of lobster. We had a dinner for 4 at Ruth's Chris for the less. Our waiter did give us a mediocre lava cake and wrote happy birthday on the plate which was a nice gesture, but not enough for us to go back again."

  • "The overall experience was just ok...nothing stands out compared to the multiple other options in the area. We actually chose Trulucks that evening because of the advertised live music till 11pm. However, the performers only sang for 20 mins of our stay from 9:30-11pm and ended at 10:30! When we asked our server why they ended early, he fumbled through a nonsensical answer. And to top it off, I asked for the avocado to be removed from my meal due to an allergy, only to have avocado served to me! The most enjoyable part of the evening was the very pleasant manager who poured our wine in the beginning. However, not enough to get me back in the doors."

  • "the service was fine, but the quality of food was awful. I have the sesame seed encrusted tuna. the tuna was not sushi grade, it was stringy I asked for a difference piece. The second piece was better, but the manager made me feel as though he was doing me a favor. The asparagus was so over done. My husband had steak, and it was dry as a bone, like it had cooked frozen. and the spinach looked like old shredded rags. If this is someone's idea of an upscale restaurant, NO THANK YOU. That was our first time in the Fort Lauderdale location, and the last. "

  • "As expected, the service was first class, the food was fantastic and the over feel was warm and inviting. We were seated in a booth that was private and romantic. We could hear the piano player when he started. He was very good. I would recommend Trulucks to anyone who enjoys a truly extraordinary dining experience, a place where you really get what you pay for and MORE !! "

  • "Appetizers tuna tartare and ceviche very tasty. Dinner of sea bass excellent! Flavorful and surprising. filet mignone boring - cheese potatoes very thick and clumpy throwback to 5th grade cafeteria. Filet was a nice cut and tasty but nothing interesting or memorable. Dessert was terrible coconut cream pie was sugar free and had a chemical aftertaste and carrot cake was too big and overly sweet. Overall 3/5 if dessert was better it would've finished with a better impression. "

  • "I brought my husband here for his birthday, it was our first time dining at TruLuck. I have to say, I think we found our new favorite restaurant. The food is bursting with flavor- from the appetizers to desserts. Everything was cooked perfectly, and the portions were generous. The overall ambiance was relaxing, perfect after a long day at work. The wait staff was polite and efficient. We cannot wait to go back! "

  • "Chose this place for a special occasion Mothers Day. Expected a lot more at these inflated prices, service was mediocre and unattentive, waited 45 minutes after the appetizers for the meal to come. One desert took another 15 minutes. The restaurant was not even crowded, our server had 2 other tables only. One plate was prepared incorrectly and refunded, as we were not willing to wait for a replacement. Two steaks were over cooked, and the sauce on my fish dinner was loaded with salt and cream, way too heavy. Even the bread was pathetic, little skimpy slices of white bread. Will not be returning to this place."

  • "We went there for Mother Day late lunch and found that the food was very good. In a group of 6 everyone enjoyed their meal. It was not cheap but at times worth the spend. It can not be an every week lunch but for special occasions highly recommend it. "
