    I was looking forward to it but I ended up being quite disappointed. Overall the food was good, but the service was below average, to say the least. We were seated half an hour after our reservation time, thanks to the hostess who obviously had forgotten about us. Everything we asked (decant the wine, set aside an ingredient because one of us was allergic, etc...) had to be repeated multiple times to be taken into account.

    This restaurant was spectacular. The service on the other hand was not the waitress was not the best who was assigned to our table. We had to keep asking for refills I guess her main focus was other tables for excellent tip. It's such a shame because just because it was a birthday dinner of 5 we all would have tipped very well.

    From the time we were seated to the time we left it was one bad experience after another. Had to wait 25 minutes for waiter to even approach table to ask if we wanted drinks. The Caesar salad dressing had so much anchovie paste in it making it inedible. I ordered scallops at the suggestion of waiter and the plate was supposed to have scallops, asparagus and fingerling potatoes, when our food was thrown down in front of us I had gritty and in some cases raw scallops and asparagus and no potatoes! The waiter NEVER came back to ask how our meal was. My husband's steak was over cooked and the mashed potatoes were awful. The waiter never asked how the meal was when he threw down my dessert and didn't offer my husband a choice! Never going back!

    Although the food was wonderful, and the atmosphere just the same, as someone with a food allergy I wasn't reassured with the knowledge of the staff of the allergens present. When I mentioned my allergy to the server his eyes got big, but his response was small (oh, that item is safe). The next day I did have symptoms of a reaction, and a more knowledgeable wait staff would definitely help to prevent that. Luckily my reactions are moderate, but for another person it could involve an ambulance having to visit the restaurant.

    I always research a new restaurant before making my reservation. Truluck's was OUTSTANDING! The menu was great (huge selection for any type of foodie), I would have tried it all if I could. The food was cooked to perfection and the portions were HUGE. The prices are steep, but portions are large and the quality of food was noteworthy. The serivce was average - great service at the door but I wasn't too impressed with our waiter (knowledgeable, but a bit unprofessional and not very attentive). The appetizers and food came out incredibly fast - but it was actually too fast to where I felt rushed. I would definitely recommend Truluck's to anyone - it is great for a date night, celebration, out of town guests, etc.

    From the moment I walked in to the moment I left the restaurant, I was treated to first class service. I was called before to confirm reservation and called after to see if my dining experience was satisfactory. The servers were attentive and gave great recommendations. The food was fresh and delicious and made perfectly to my liking. We had the oysters, large stone crab claw, surf and turf (center cut filet and king crab leg) and sea scallops for our meal. Everything was perfection. The butter that comes with the crab leg is amazing! We did not have room for dessert this time but I am looking forward to going back.

    This restaraunt was a great dining experience in downtown Miami. We will definately go back on our next visit. We were greated by the manager at the door upon arrival. Our waitress Jeanine never missed a beat. She timed everything perfectly and had great recommendations! So glad we picked this one to visit! The bar was was lively but not too lively the dining side was a perfect noise level.

    Staff is exceptionally accommodating and goes the extra mile. Also good selection of food whether you are a meat eater or not. Went on a Friday night and dining area busy and bar looked packed. Being on Brickell is a bit of a challenge and the valet parking is about the only option unless you happen to live within walking distance.

    We made our reservation long ago,for last monday. This is the day of the week when Trulucks has the "all you can eat crab claws".Our reservation was fairly early: 8:00pm. When we ordered we were told that the "all you can eat" was over! That same day we had seen a tv spot offering the "all you can eat claws" promotion for the Brickell Ave. restaurant.

    Not our first time, so choose to comeback often. Almond crusted trout is one of the best dishes on the menu. Appetizers are great if you choose ceasar salad or crab meat salad. Tomato salad does not have such wonderful tomatoes as Florida should have. The best of the best is their Carrot Cake for dessert. It's moist and smothered with caramel sauce. Slices are big enough to be shared among 3-4 people or eat alone for the next two days. Service as always knowledgable and superb. Will comeback next time we are in Miami.

    A very good restaurant and the best of the Truluck's chain (in my opinion). The service is warm and friendly and very professional. Hands down, the best seafood shellfish; the quality is superb and the preparation is perfect and minimal. I've been there for business, for family celebrations, lunch and dinner, weekday and weekend and no matter what the occasion, a memorable meal. The wait staff is well versed in the menu and a reliable source of advice. The decor is beautiful too. From the moment you arrive, staff are unhurried, gracious and genuine

    Our experience at Trulucks was ok. The steak was very well cooked, and the oyster's were excellent. The Scallops special for the evening was not good and the sides were sub par. Our server was very attentive but couldn't give us any good recommendations for the food. Good wine list. I would give them another shot in the future.
