    First time eat Truluck's and enjoyed the evening. Food was good, I ordered the steak special with crab claws and appetizer. If I was to go again, would skip the steak, but the crab claws were outstanding. Ambiance is good, excellent service…pricey but worth for a special occasion

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/9/2014
    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.

    Trulucks has amazing seafood. The crowd can be a little old at times. But that is expected due to the pricing of the food. Wish they would offer specials more often. Would probably come more often

    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".

    First time at Truluck's and it was a great experience. Our server Enrique was very attentive, but not over the top where he interrupted our conversation the whole evening. The food was amazing. We had steak and king crab. Very fresh. It was a special occasion and the birthday girl got a flaming chocolate dessert with a side of ice cream. A nice way to end the experience. I thought it was going to be a little more upscale as a whole. Possibly a dress code but people were there in shorts and t-shirts. That was the only down side to the whole experience.

    SURPRISINGLY WE WERE THERE FOR OUR 4:00 P.M. RESERVATIONS ON SATURDAY, YET OUR SERVER ROSE SEEMED RUSHED!!! EVERYTHING SHE SAID TO US WAS…I'LL GET IT OR CHECK "IN A HURRY!" IT WASN'T THAT MANY PEOPLE THERE, YET OUR NORMAL SERVER ROSE, WAS QUITE RUSHED AND SHE PREFACED MOST REQUESTS WITH "IN A HURRY!" THE ORIGINAL BASKET OF BREAD BROUGHT TO OUR TABLE WAS FROM THE DAY BEFORE. THE BREAD WAS EXTREMELY HARD AND NOT FRESH. A BIT SURPRISED AT OUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE AT TRULUCK'S ON SATURDAY. IT DIDN'T LIVE UP TO MY NORMAL EXPERIENCE AT TRULUCK'S

    Trulucks is one of those restaurants that you can count on each visit for great service, a good environment and good food. A little on the pricey side but it's well worth it. This restaurant has been within my top ten list of restaurants in the City for a long time running. I've never had a bad experience there.

    This was the first time I have taking my wife to eat at Truluck's in Houston and the host treated us like we didn't belong in the restaurant. We show up at 9:25pm for a 9:30pm reservation and was told that we need to wait for seating closer to our time. Didn't say you can wait in the bar or we are running a little behind. We did get seated around 9:34pm and then waited for our waiter to talk to us for about 10 minutes. We did order and the food was outstanding as always. I've had a lot of business dinners with great service at Truluck's. So this hopefully was a off night for them.

    The restaurant was so loud that our server commented that she'd never had it be so tough to hear. Three of us were in a banquet and could not carry on a normal conversation. Outstandin tea collection though the French Press leaked all over the table. The crab was tasteless, the Steak Dynamite was well prepared but had too many flavors. One of my guests did not finish her soup or fish. Dessert waas amazing but too little, too late.

    The service was very good. Turluck's servicers allowed us to discuss business without them constantly interrupting us to order. The food was good but not outstanding. I had the Salmon with their house salad. I would order the same again, the salad was very good. I did not order the Crab legs since I believe they are out of season, therefore they would not be fresh. Next time I go I am going to try their shrimp

    We were a group of four celebrating a birthday. We all had the stone crab (from California this time of year). The crab and sides were enjoyed by all. The waiter brought a complementary flaming dessert that was appreciated. Service was a little slow as times but the waiting was very busy covering a lot of tables. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We will certainly return again.

    Ambience was good and the service was too! The sea bass I ordered had an ammonia taste to it which means the fish was not fresh. My wife's seafood (red fish) was excellent, but the side of grilled asparagus was pretty burnt and stringy. For the price of the dinners, the food should have been of better quality. We were out for a romantic evening and would've liked to have stayed for dessert and coffee, however there was a very young child at the table next to us who was not behaving and crying so the experience was not there for us.

  • Vegetarian Tofu & Salmon Salad
    WorldFoodie
    Dined on 7/2/2014
    The vegetarian menu item sounded delicious so took a chance. Sadly the menu did not describe it as loaded with jalapenos which made the dish impossible to eat even though I do not mind spicy food. But when the heat over powers the rest of the dish - its not worthy of finishing. The tofu was was well prepared though. My associate had the salmon salad where the salmon was well prepared and seasoned but the salad was drowning in dressing. Advise ordering the dressing on the side.

    We scheduled our anniversary dinner here. It was great. We went early and sat at the bar to drink and enjoy the excellent entertainment. From the time we were seated we were served and greeted by the staff. Bryan our waiter could not have been more accommodating or attentive. This will be the top choice for special events. In addition all food items we ordered were outstanding. But that is a given. It was the service that made this special.

    Dinning at Truluck's has been - always - a good experience. The service was polite and professional, and the wine list more than acceptable - they could improve though to include more Sauvignon Blanc (goes great with stone crab. They have reduced the size of the scallops they serve. Nice bar and good ambiance.
