    For year I have avoided Joe's because of the stories about how hard it is to get a table. The experience here was great. The parking attendant notifies the front desk when you arrive and they greet you by name. We made reservations on Open Table the same afternoon and were seated at a prime booth. My Oysters Rockefeller (could have been hotter) and halibut with crabmeat were excellent, my partner's Caesar's salad (which comes with uncut romaine leaves) was excellent too. We did not like the trout amandine, this should be a delicate dish but the crust on this version makes it too dry and heavy as was the butter caper sauce, more like a mayonnaise. We bypassed desserts because the size of the portions was huge - enough for four. Great wine list. Good bar scene with live music and very prompt and helpful valet service for only $10.00. All in all a great experience.

    The greeting at the door was warm and friendly, but that's about the extent of all that's good when dining at Trulucks. We were a party of 6 celebrating a 5oth birthday. We dine out at many nice restaurants, and hoped this would be a great experience being our first time dining here. It was not what we expected. The service fell short of our expectations! It was awkward from the beginning when they placed two bread baskets on our table, then came back and took one away because we were still waiting for one couple, then came back with it when they arrived. Really? Wasn't aware there was a bread shortage! Our water glasses were allowed to stay empty for extended periods of time. Soon after some had finished eating our plates were being cleared quickly making the one person who not yet finished to feel uncomfortable and rushed. We were never offered to see the dessert options, simply gave the the birthday man a chocolate cake and walked away without even stopping to think if maybe he didn't want or like chocolate cake!! Never mind the rest of the guests! Only after asking if there was any other option did our waitress offer another option, carrot cake. Again, we noticed on our way out that they have a platter with many options that we never got to see. Overall we were not impressed. The food was just okay, have had better, but topped with the poor service, not a place we will return to. There are too many options in Miami where to spend my money to settle for mediocre.

    All you can eat stone crabs on Monday nights during season (for $99): fresh, good sized and well cracked. The group dinner was also fresh and very tasty (if you don't eat stone crabs). Lastly, the dessert chocolate cake with ice cream and fresh cherries was big enough for four people and totally delicious. We'll go back again!

    My husband and I were looking for good stone crab. Everything about the meal (the lobster bisque, the Caesar salad, and the stone crab platter) was amazing! The Parmesan mashed potatoes were exceptional. My only regret us eating too many potatoes so I was too full to try a dessert (they looked excellent).

    Dined on 11/6/2014
    Thr portion of the food was poor and the taste was disappointing, the service was not focused and they got the wrong order more than once and the Manager didn't do anything about it. For that price I can get a meal in a regular restaurant and I prefer going to PRIME ONE TWELVE like I did last time and everything was 5 stars. The price is not a problem is the service, the quality of the plate and the team that makes a good restaurant and I will never come back here again. My sisters bday was a disaster. Thanks. Kudo.

    I made the mistake of reading some of the reviews on this restaurant before our reservation so I was hesitant about our experience. As I said "I made a mistake" because the service and the food were awesome. As a party of two we were offered a booth which typically seats four. Great start. Our server made great recommendations and could not be more accommodating to us. My friend and I shared the mussels marinara which was delicious. I could have drank the broth like a soup. I had the halibut which had the right amount of spicy kick to it. All in all I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. It did not disappoint at all!,,

    I invited very important clients on Monday evening. We sat at the table over 45 minutes before the server even attempted to take our order. Waited for a bottle of Champagne another 45 minutes. I was only after calling the Manager over, was it that the service stepped up but still lacking. At the end of the evening, the Manager did take care of our Champagne bottle and did not charge for it. Trulucks is an amazing restaurant! However, they must ensure that the servers are properly trained before they put them out to attend customers.

    The service was great and the food was AWESOME. We went there for our anniversary and we really enjoyed it. I loved their CHILLED crab claw, although it was my first time eating chilled sea food. I also had their King crab which was also good. To be honest I think everything on that menu taste good. I'm looking forward to trying their steak because we only had sea food. Once AGAIN their Chilled Crab Claw are AMAZING. They have a great menu. I had their lobster, and they have a VARIETY of wine. Their wine list is longer than their food menu (Lol). I think I just find my new favorite restaurant. Their seating booths are very comfortable and they had live music to help you enjoy the food and wine.

    Everything about this place is amazing! The service was top-notch from start to finish. Everyone was very attentive and helpful, and our waitress had a great knowledge of the menu and wine list. The food was incredible - I recommend the tuna tartare, lobster bisque, and of course the Chilean sea bass! They are also known for their steaks, so if you're in the mood for that instead go for the Filet Mignon. Because it was my boyfriend's birthday, they offered us a FLAMING chocolate cake - best part of the night! 5 stars for sure!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We traveled fairly far to dine at Trulucks Brickell and were extremely excited to indulge in the wide array of delish dishes!! Much to our chagrin we were greeted by a less than friendly hostess and maitre d' - we were offered a table on the patio but we politely declined and asked to be seated in the main dining area. This must have annoyed the maitre d' as he didn't say another word to us - he only gestured to a section of four tables to choose from. He dropped our menus after we sat & left - again not a word. 10 minutes later another couple was sat next to us - seated by the same man, however he was quick to engage the guests with conversation & offered them wine and told them their server was on his way. What the??? How rude!!

    The server was less than thrilled to be there and made no attempt to hide it. He had no interest in making recommendations and seemed annoyed whenever we asked questions. The food was amazing but we felt rushed and unwelcomed as if we were intruding on his night. For an expensive restaurant I expect more.

    I came here to eat with my girlfriend and it was our anniversary. We were greeted by Omar, our waiter. He was very fluent in the menu and a joyful person. He told us at the end that he didn't forget it was our anniversary in which I thought the restaurant had forgotten. So he tried to make our night a memorable one and fun. Which he did and brought is something special at the end of our dinner. I would recommend this waiter any day of the year.

    We drove in from Tampa. This was the first time we had been here and had no idea what to expect. From the beginning the staff was very welcoming and attentive. We were initially put at a table near the bar area. It was very loud and we had another couple with us that we had not seen for awhile. The hostesses was pro-active and asked if we wanted to move more toward the back where it was quieter. Perfect! Thank you so much for supporting and adding to this very special evening. The food, wine and service was great and made for a very pleasant evening. We will be back.

    This was my first time attending here. We arrived for happy hour and sat at the bar. They offer half off some cocktails and select appetizers. The crispy shrimp were delicious and the goat cheese app was pretty good. We were greeted by Kim and took us to our table. The menu has a number of seafood and steak dishes to choose from. We ordered the seafood platter and a bouillabaisse type of dish (can't remember the name). The platter came with stone crab claws, oysters, Blue crab salad, and a few shrimp. I wasn't mind blown by the boullabaisse. It seemed to lack a bit of flavor. But the bread that came with the dish tasted good as you dip it in the sauce. I had an amazing experience and will def go back. I have to try the dessert next time.

    I had an amazing experience. I took my best friend for her birthday and she was overly impressed. I made reservations on open table and had to make a last minute change which was a piece of cake. The hostes quickly accommodated to my requests. The waiter did take a bit to come take out order after serving our water but once he did, he was amazing and I totally forgot that he took long. The food was exquisite, we had the lobster bisque and the rest of our meal from the Miami Spice menu. The salad was to die for and a very large amount. Trout was juicy and very well flavored. Pork chop and mashed potatoes were delicious. Overall had an amazing experience. Can't wait to go back.

    Second time dining at Trulucks' first time was at bar had a few appetizers! I knew I had to comeback! This time around however I was disappointed! Atmosphere was good got reservations seated in time staff was friendly! I am a foodie and a fabulous cook ... My favorite dish is scallops! My friend and I both decided on Miami spice because it had scallops! The scallops were too salty! It felt like they were sautéed in burnt oil... Was very disappointed! Had the mussels for appetizer and they were very fishy and overcooked! We also had the lobster soup and if was way to salty and had big chunks of goat cheese! We did not like it at all! The dessert was a chocolate mousse and that was excellent! The wine selection is great if getting a bottle.

    We specifically requested the quiet private area in the back of the restaurant and this ws promised and confirmed. I was being two people with hearing issues. On arrival the private area had a party going on and we had to take a table in the restaurant. Noise was unbearable. Everyone was yelling over the music. We could not hear the people next to us. We love the food at. Trucks is. But my guests were miserable!

    My first visit I had a mild allergic reaction and spoke with staff about it. This visit, I arrived a little late and my company for the night was sending me texts about how they were asking him about allergies (I noted it in my reservation). This is great attention to detail, and makes me feel very comfortable recommending Truluck's to any of my friends and family. As with before the food was wonderful, the service was great, and the birthday boy (my company for the night) left feeling very special. Thanks!
