    We had tuna and salmon entrees, both of which were good, but nothing special. Mashed potatoes were starchy, like they had been on the stove for a few days. Service was very good, and everyone was very nice.

    After hearing great reviews regarding the appetizers & happy hour we decided to indulge in dinner (appetizers are 1/2 price only in the bar during happy hour so we started there by arriving 1/2 hour earlier). It was a date night for my wife and I and from the moment we entered we knew this was a class operation. We had made reservations online (highly recommended). Our server, "Monica" was outstanding and made the dining experience a night to remember. She made excellent recommendations and we followed her lead all the way to dessert. My wife made a comment that "this was her new favorite restaurant". I even received a follow up call the next day inquiring about our dining experience. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    This was our first visit to Truluck and it won't be our last! We were seated on time at a romantic booth. The wine ist was extensive with many choices by the glass as well as bottles. The menu includes a nice variety of fish pan-fried or broiled, and shellfish, as well as chicken, steaks and pork. The portions are good sized without being over the top. I had the grouper and my husband had the filet. Both meals were excellent!! Waitstaff were attentive and professional. Throughout dinner 2 different managers stopped by to check on dinner or anything else we might want. I've never had a restaurant care as much about my dining experience as Truluck. We are regular visitors to Ft. Lauderdale; we will be back to Truluck.

    Not my first time eating here but this meal seemed rushed from the start. Appetizers came out in 5 minutes & the entrees 10 minutes later. I specifically asked the server to slow things down once the apps came out but he obviously didn't communicate that to the kitchen. I was looking for a nice relaxed meal & this felt like I was trying to catch a plane. At these prices the last thing you want to feel is rushed. Might go back but not for a long time. There are too many other good restaurants in Fort Lauderdale that are worthy of my time & $$$.

    Truluck is a very pretty place. The service was excellent and the presentation was good. My wife and I ordered the 10oz filet and rib eye respectively. They were both okay but not on a level with other steak house such as Smith and Wollensky or the Palm. There was live music which was very pleasant and not at all intrusive. The tables were not too close together which kept the noise down. All in all it was a pleasant experience and we would probably go back.

    I'm new to the area but consider myself a wine enthusiast. I was pleased with the varied selections of wines and pleasantly surprised by the abundant selections from the bar, including the "Red Door Martini." I absolutely fell in love! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and was an essential element in creating the atmosphere and knowledge that allowed me to enjoy my visit. To top it off, the food was exquisite. As a vegetarian, I eat fish and seafood daily however; the variety in the menu truly made this dining experience a good one.

I wont be have another gathering here, but may visit again and see if they've worked out the food issue.

    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
