    Went with friends and we tried the Miami Spice menu. I had been there before and found the food just as excellent as previously. The caesar salad and sonoma salad were delicious. The scallops were cooked perfectly and they know how to use truffle oil to give a hint of flavor without being overwhelming. Friends who had the pork chop loved it as well as the shrimp scampi. They also make the BEST carrot cake on the planet. The Miami Spice portion is not the abnorrmally large piece they usally serve but was an extremely generous serving which no one could finish--except for me! Worth the calories! The service was excellent as well-attentive withough being overbearing. We NEVER had to ask for water and we dring LOTS of it. Divine meal.

    It's an awesome moment when you discover a restaurant that not only impresses you with great food, but outstanding service and ambiance as well. My date and I were initially drawn to Trulucks through word of mouth and their being apart of the Miami Spice listing. We went way off the reservation, as they had so many tasty things to choose from. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and displayed great people skills, as she happily gave us her recommendations on what we should try and portion size. We definitely plan on dining there in the near future.

    Miami / Miami Beach has a vibrant yet pretentious restaurant scene - many offering great ambiance yet average to below average food. Truluck's is NOT one of these restaurants. The ambiance is OUTSTANDING. The service is EXCEPTIONAL. The employees bar/restaurant/wait staff / management are a cut above any restaurant in Florida. Enjoy the experience because the Truluck's restaurant experience is far above anything you have experienced.

    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.
