    This reservation was cancelled by the restaurant as they had a flooding problem. 6:30 time was cancelled about 4:40. Hard to find a replacement that late on a Sunday night. Feel that restaurant should try to make-up for the inconvenience of trying to find another place for the special night.they had phone number so they could have done something.

  • Another Fabulous Meal at my Favorite!

    This time we ate in the bar, because we fell in love with the staff and the music was wonderful. Also a great place to enjoy people watching. Our waitress was Kendall and she was a pro! We got there during the wonderful Happy Hour and ordered the warm goat cheese. It comes with toasted bread and is topped with olives, candied nuts and a wonderful spicy olive oil drizzle. I could definitely make a meal from this. My husband loves the Sangria which is handmade from a secret recipe that we begged and got from a waiter. It is usually $12.00/glass, but $6.00 during Happy Hour. I had sparkling wine for the same price as the Sangria-a steal! Kendall made sure to get refills for us prior to Happy Hour being over. Then we ordered the miso sea bass with crab fried rice(huge pieces of crab) and I had the stone crab with asparagus with hollandaise. Just heavenly. They then brought a chocolate bread pudding with cherry jubilee sauce which they set on fire at the table in honor of my birthday. It just does not get any better than this, as far as I am concerned, which is why I come here every year for my birthday.

    Our dining experience was great. My "birthday girl" had the South African lobster tail. I had the NY Steak. The management added a nice chocolate and nut "cake" for my wife's birthday that was brought out on a large plate that had "Happy Birthday" written on it with chocolate syrup. Very nice of them to do so and it added to our enjoyment of the day.

    I liked Trulucks - but the steak needed to be more tender /flavorful outside of the fatty part (ribeye). Hot & spicy Shrimp were really good. Seabass was good. Chocolate cake was great. I would give 3.5 on food that nite- steak had a higher expectations on

    Nice looking place and food presentation, nice staff, however food quality and price did not coincide well. We also had a civeche that was soaking and did not taste fresh. Our waiter changed twice and both were very courteous. Probably would not come back for seafood.

    If you are looking for an Elegant atmosphere, Attentive service, Delicious food, Live music, PLEASE go to Truluck's. Everyone deserves to be pampered every now and then. I brought my mom here for her birthday and we were Extremely Satisfied with the way they handled everything.It helps when u make reservations& let them know the occasion.Make sure when ordering u ask what the market price is on the seafood just so u will have a heads up (whatever the price, it is WELL WORTH IT) we had the king crab for one of the main dishes and blackened red fish w/ponchatrain sauce and sides of crab mac&cheese ( recommended by our wonderful waiter Matthew Reeves)&crab fried rice it was simply scrumptious &the appetizers! We will DEFINITELY be back!

    Love the restaurant but there is something about eating wonderful food accompanied by wonderful live music in the bar! We have even stopped in at lunch time just to share desserts with a group of friends, instead of a birthday cake! My husband is a steak man and as he doesn't like fish, I like to eat it when we are out! I normally have crab if there is not a special I fancy! He always asks for pepper sauce even though its not on the menu, they serve it and it is outstanding! I like that they maintain a good standard, while also being accommodating.

    This was my first visit to Truluck's, a surprise dinner for my husband's 65th birthday. What an absolutely devine experience!! The ambiance is perfect for a special occasion and can turn a casual evening into a special occasion. The Miso-Glazed Seabass is peerless among seafood dishes and the single most wonderful dish on the planet! The Blackened Redfish Pontchartrain is awesome. The key lime pie is the best in the land. The service was unsurpassed from the wait staff to the valet. Our evening was perfect and we can't wait to go back for no special reason other than to enjoy the food and the great service.

    We went to Trulucks to celebrate our 7th anniversary. We had a lovely time from the moment we arrived. My request for a window table was noted, which got us off to a good start. Service was first class; our waitress was very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. Trulucks has an extensive wine list. Our food was delicious. I had lobster bisque (perfect) followed by sea bass (cooked to perfection). On the opposite side of the table, a crab claw followed by a 14oz NY strip disappeared in no time, with sounds of delight at each stage. Our charming waitress followed up with a flaming plate of chocolate cake, cherrys with ice cream and a personalised message written in chocolate. A delightful touch! It was expensive, but worth it!

    We went for the steak and we were not disappointed. The steak and the side orders were of excellent quality. My only criticism was the service was hurried and fast. My wife and I were on vacation, and let our server subtly know that there was no rush. Although I didn't time how long, it seemed like the steak was back in about 5 or 10 minutes after we ordered.

    The food was good, but the service was very poor. We had to wait a long time for tea, our check etc. We never even got the dessert from our power lunch. It was embarrassing since it was a business lunch that there was a delay in simple things, but at least the ambience was nice enough that the client felt the effort had been made to try and make it a pleasant experience.

    It had been years since I visited TruLuck's due to a poor experience a few years ago. A client chose the spot, and as a good vendor I obliged. The service was expected and the lobster bisque was excellent. I ordered the "Jumbo Shrimp Platter" with Garlic Sautéed Spinach. The shrimp were far from "Jumbo". I would guess 21-30/pound size. I was served 5 shrimp that looked horribly lonely on the large plate. The spinach was good, but lacked seasoning. After adding a few dashes of salt, it was good. $200.00 for 4 people and no one was excited about their dish. Hopefully I can talk clients out of making this choice ever again.

    While the ambience was quite nice, I amnot sure it was a good value for my (many) dollars. The service was okay, the food was (just) okay, but the price was double what I can find nearby....with usually better food. I was somewhat disappointed as I was expecting "one of the best places in town". It wasn't. I would find it hard to recommend it to my friends as "the best".
