Excellent seafood restaurant in downtown Chicago. The Branzino was perfect.
As usual, Truluck never fails to deliver. Our server Blake was amazing and we will definitely ask for him again when we return.
For a business that has words like “finest “ associated with the name should take a class on how to correctly prepare seafood and service their patrons or close down at this point… birthday dinner RUINED
First time diner, had been wanting to give it a try. We arrived early and the hostess said we’d be seated closer to our reservation time. No problem. While we waited, along with several other groups, the manager brought out champagne to apologize for the wait. In any case, We ended up being seated right on time. Our server was great, attentive but not annoying . Courses were spaced out appropriately and I felt we were really able to enjoy the meal because of it. Drinks were well made and strong. For what we ordered, I found the bill to be very reasonable. I will most certainly be back.
Best meal we had in Chicago. Every entree was delicious. Service was great.
Very impressed wit this restaurant, Ppl and overall
Upscale dinning room, friendly professional service, outstanding tuna & crab
dishes. Surprising large wine offering for a seafood focused restaurant . Conversational friendly dining room was a nice change from other restaurants in the area.
Gem in the city. Wonderful libations and best server! Definitely recommended.
Birthday lunch with a friend
This was our first time here at Truluck’s Chicago, it was our mother’s birthday. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff were friendly and kind, our server was excellent. The food and drinks were delicious! I will definitely visit again!
Everything was amazing about this restaurant!
This was a great experience. Our waitress made great recommendations with wine and food. Everything was prepared great! Our evening was a night to remember.
Our server was amazing.
We celebrated our 5th year wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect - the food, the service, the ambience. All 5 stars!!!
Anniversary. We ordered the oysters and the crab fried rice… I’m so upset I left my rice. The servers were attentive, the food was delicious and the ambiance was excellent. I will be visiting again.
Our first time. Visited on a Friday night. The lobster bisque was delicious and not too salty as it usually is. We split a roasted whole fish (branzino) which was deliciously done. The split the fish into two plates in the kitchen. It was fresh and tender. The taramosalata sauce was perfect. So was the crab fried rice. Moist, flavorful and satisfying. Anthony was our waiter and made the whole dining experience worthwhile. A little pricey but worth it. Will go back.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary and they greatly exceeded my expectations...warm greeting, rose petals on the table, orchestrated service that was a joy to observe, excellent food in crab legs and sea bass, and a gift of baked Alaska prepared and served tableside. All of this along with piano music and singing. Vibe was very upscale and comfortable. We will definitely return! They even followed up with a phone call to determine how things were.
The service provided by Arik was great, the food was delicious topped off with a fantastic carrot cake for dessert.
AMAZING experience from start to finish!
Superb in every way. We ate in the wine room, which is gorgeous. The only drawback is that the noise level can be very loud if other diners are talking loudly. Some sound deadening acoustics would help. The entrees were cooked perfectly and the portions were very generous. The accompaniments were over the top delicious, which is highly unusual. (Crap fried rice on one and homemade sweet potato fries, on the other.). Our server was exceptionally kind and helpful. The drinks from the bar were perfectly prepared. Incredible experience.
Amazing place to celebrate your birthday. They provided a complimentary baked Alaska for dessert. The Bollinger champagne was a great pairing to the lobster, crab legs and ribeye. We made our own custom surf and turf and they individually split it between our two plates.
We absolutely loved this place. Every single thing we ordered was so delicious. Our table ordered shrimp cocktail, cesar salad, crab cake, lobster mashed potatoes, miso sea bass, and scallops. We shared everything so I tasted each dish. Seriously, all of them were flawless and everyone at my table thought the same. I couldn’t believe that every single dish we ordered was delicious. That’s really hard to do! The ambiance was sophisticated but not too stuffy. Servers were very attentive. I can’t wait to go back!
Food, drinks & service was GREAT! Cant wait to go back.
Outstanding experience! Food was fantastic, service impeccable, really great venue.
Great food, live music, and exceptional service- what else could one want?!
Beautiful dinner. Love the ambiance.
Great variety in the menu and excellent preparation and presentation. Excellent service from Justin.
The most delicious Sea Bass I have ever had !!!
This restaurant is amazing! Fabulous location, fabulous ambiance, waitstaff fun, attentive and professional. Food presentation outstanding along with its quality! Best seafood and service ever received in any other restaurant of this category! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
Lovely atmosphere and wonderful food. Some minor issues, but expecting perfection everytime isn't reality. Will definitely stop by again.
The ambiance was intimate and conducive to conversation and the food really fresh and exceptional. I had the best lobster tail I've ever had.
Our server Reese was absolutely wonderful and completely professional the night was amazing!
Elegant scene… waiter was nice.. food was good except, I request fresh Parmesan mashed potatoes.. they were very old and hard .. I sent them back
Got there right at the end of the 15 minute grace period, and was told we either sit in the lounge area or it will be a wait for a table, I said I want to wait for a table the girl looks at me and says “ITS GONNA BE A WHILE”…. Why have a grace period then? Super pointless. Soon as she can see I’m visibly annoyed now all of a sudden there’s a table and we were seated within 2 minutes. Makes no sense. Every time I come here there is a problem so stupid because the food is not good, steak was dry as hell, drinks OK, only thing good was our waiter. Will not be coming here again there are many better seafood or steak places that me and my boyfriend frequent so we won’t be missing out in anything but attitudes and dry steak
The food is excellent and the ambiance including the live music is a pleasure. We have dined at Truluck’s before they even arrived in Chicago, it is a family favorite, and a place we trust for business entertainment. I would historically give it a 5, but only a 4 this time. As most restaurants they appear to be short on staff, which negatively impacts the service, but I suspect this will improve over time. It is already expensive and I don’t care to be also be ‘nickel and dimed’ (e.g., charge for bread, refills on kid’s beverages) in addition to the high menu prices. Having said this, we will certainly return and do recommend it for a great evening.
