    Terribly slow service despite restaurant being empty. Not a good vibe. Bartender was our waiter in bar area. Charged $25.50 for a wine listed as $16 per glass. No apologies for error or slow service. Understand restaurants are short staffed but this experience was beyond unreasonable. Used to come here all the time as we live a few blocks away and love Truluck’s in other locations. Only good part was the pianist.

    We first ‘discovered’ Truluck’s in Miami. We were so pleased that a restaurant opened here on Chicago. The ambiance was great, service excellent and our server was friendly, knowledgeable and polite. We will return.

    Parmesan mashed potatoes did not taste like there was Parmesan in them. Looked like Kraft grated cheese sprinkled on top. Same for the Parmesan rolls. Steamed spinach had too much garlic. Was not aware there was garlic in it otherwise would not have ordered.

    The size of Seabass was cut very small 3 ounces for me and wife for our “Main”!! Then another guests ordered the Seabass and it was every bit the size of 6-7 ounces fillet!!! Was not happy about that since the Dish is a $50 main😡

    We were really looking forward to a special dinner. The drinks were good but the lobster was tough and the butter was bland. For $110 I expected more. I’ve had better at Red Lobster. My husband had the Father’s Day special. The filet medallions were flat and the rest of his meal was just ok. Also his was $125. The waiter never came back to ask us how the food was. I figured maybe African lobster was supposed to be hard so I just ate it. I needed the steak knife to cut it. Very disappointing!

    Where do I begin? Everything was great from the moment we stepped in. Our waiter, Max, was very friendly and attentive without being overwhelming. We had the lobster bisque, cocktail shrimp, scallops and sea bass. The food came out in a reasonable time and tasted like perfection. Our cocktails were also very well made.

    Somewhat disappointing. This was our only night away from the kids on our vacation and we got seated Next to a toddler. When hubs asked hostess to move us they only moved us 2 tables down while there were plenty of open tables in the other side of the restaurant. I’ll never understand why people are so disrespectful to bring toddlers and babies to a place like this during dinner hour.

    We watched as tables around us were served before us while seated after us. The wine list was depleted leaving only a few options for premium wines. Our main course was delayed and the Stone Crab was honestly tasteless as described by one at our table. Four people dining and a bill of $1,200.00 I was not impressed for the price…

    First of all, due to unexpected heavy traffic in the city, I called and said we would be later than the 15 minute grace period, and we ended up being over 30 minutes late, but they were great about it and accommodated us without making us feel guilty!! We started with a few of the Stone Crab claws as appetizers and they were fabulous and already cracked for us, so much less work than usual. I got the Lobster Tail which was a large portion and perfectly-prepared. My husband got the King Crab leg which was also perfect. We got the sides of Lobster Mac & Cheese which was enough for 2-3 people and absolutely delicious!! I also got the grilled broccoli which were large portions but a little too salty and spicy for my preference. Next time I would probably ask that they go easy on the seasoning. They gave us a Baked Alaska since we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary which was so much better than I remember it! My husband also ordered the Carrot Cake which was a HUGE piece (almost a 1/4 of the cake??) and so delicious with the warm caramel sauce on the side. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we definitely plan on going back.

    We really enjoyed the food. My husband was very pleased with his tuna. Unfortunately, the waitress was not to our liking. Her voice is very loud and high pitched to the point of being annoying. We also had lapses in service. Enjoyed the entertainment even though it was sometimes difficult to hear.

    Exceptional service. All dishes ordered were either perfect or very good (key lime pie needed a bit more lime, but texturally was perfect, branzino was slightly overcooked, but with the sauce it was very good-- flavors were delicious). Ambience was elegant, clean and moderate noise-- fine for conversation (dining room). Overall, excellent dining experience

    Fabulous food! Seafood of all kinds, something for every taste. Rare to see “dutch yellowtail” on a menu, so you know their fish is exceptionally fresh, plus interesting accompaniments. The appetizers were large enough if you are eating light. But don’t skip dessert—share a Baked Alaska, a huge cyclinder of two kinds of ice cream and crushed cookie layers inside a meringue or marshmallow shell that gets lighted at the table. I haven’t seen this dessert on a menu in years, and it was so delicious! Great waiter, too. And have a drink at the bar beforehand to enjoy the cheery company of the bartender. This was a first time at TruLuck’s for us, and a wonderful experience all around.
