We dined at Truluck’s for the first time during our honeymoon. The manager on duty went above and beyond to make our dining experience memorable. Our servers, Cynthia and Jonathan were excellent! They were kind and patient with us first-timers. Cocktails, appetizer, entrees, and surprise dessert were all to die for. We cannot wait to come back for an anniversary dinner!

scallops, tuna, creamed spinach...all quite good. Ditto calamari.Everything was done right. Only complaint was that the background music was too loud - a quieter room would have been nice and all they had to do was turn down the volume.

From arrival, to menu selection and drinks recommendations, Truluck’s was on-point as usual. “Here are some paper bags to store your mask while you dine,” followed by an overview of specials. Service and food were spectacular, as we have all come to expect. Another enjoyable evening at a brilliant restaurant.

For what they charge the atmosphere is very tense and covid paranoid. They refused to take my cash yet took my debit card that I've used at 10 establishments that same day and every clerk had touched. Just doesn't make any sense. I'll skip this place until things return to normal and maybe then go back. The price point is just too high not to get the full experience.

Dinner was delightful. We ordered a shrimp and crab napoleon and two cocktails, to start. Followed by the chilean sea bass which tasted amazing, although the miso reduction could have been tighter. The japanese katsu hamachi had a burst of flavor profiles. Very delicious , but the fish was a bit overdone. It was cooked to a medium well. We also ordered the lobster mash potatoes. Although not pretty to look at, your jaw will drop when you taste them. They were outstanding. The lobster was buttery in the reduction. Bravo!
