Our waitress was not very attentive to our table of 2 but seemed very attentive to the other 2 tables she had that were seated near us. The filet we ordered at medium came out rare and was taken back to the kitchen. When it came back out to the table it was not only NOT a new steak, it was charred and tough. Just not a good experience altogether.

From the amazing customer service to the delicious food, I was thoroughly impressed. The food never disappoints. The crab cake is the BEST that I’ve had in the Houston area and I’ve been to a lot of restaurants. Also, please don’t sleep on the carrot cake... it is to die for!!! I will definitely be back (although this isn’t my first time here).

Truluck's is one of my favorite restaurants although I don't get there very often. It was sad to see it so empty due to the panic that is going on in Houston for the coronavirus. I hope they are able to come back when the eat-in ban is lifted.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday @ Truluck’s was an excellent idea. From the time we arrived to our departure, everything was wonderful. The valet attendant and the hostess were polite. Our waiter was polite, informative , and very attentive. The food was delicious. Compliments to the chef! We loved the live music. It wasn’t too loud. We had a great experience. Thanks.

Our waiter was outstanding, very accommodating and attentive. I had the 1lb crab leg, my son had the salmon with bernaise sauce. The food tasted great and we didn’t feel rushed. All was well until the end of the meal when my son felt sudden stomach discomfort. Whatever it was seemed to pass through quickly and there were no lingering effects the next day. My guess would be something in his meal did not agree with him. All in all we love Trulucks and will definitely return.

I was attending a play at The George with my son and we decided to treat ourselves before the performance. I had always heard Truluck's was a terrific place and it definitely lived up to expectations. I arrived before my son and they seated me at a table to wait for him, something I appreciate. The music was especially good, new twists on standards and rock music that was fun to listen to but not intrusive. The drink menu was outstanding, my son is pretty selective about scotches and was excited to see several of his favorites available. I had the sangria and it was one of the best I've ever had. The crab cake appetizer was wonderful, perfectly seasoned with just a touch of breadcrumbs to give it a slight crunch and the crab was simply fantastic. He had the Redfish Ponchartrain and I had the Miso-glazed Sea Bass which was terrific. He liked his very much but agreed that the Sea Bass was particularly good and we finished of by sharing the dessert trio, the carrot cake and creme brulee were excellent. The chocolate cake was the only thing that wasn't completely outstanding and that is the key, it was still very good, just not blow you away good like everything else had been. Overall it was a fabulous meal and our server Eric was great. He asked up front if we were celebrating and when we told him we had a play to get to he was very attentive to time and getting us out for the opening curtain. Now I can't wait to go back with my husband, definitely a place I intend to revisit.

Absolutely great food, service and ambiance. The stone crab was fresh and served on ice, the scallops, lobster and steak were perfectly cooked. Never have we been disappointed with the friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff at Truluck's.

My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary here and the ambiance was romantic, live piano player and smooth lighting. The food was amazing, i still have dreams over their bread and miso sea bass. The service was unmatched, wait staff was knowledgeable in all the dishes on the menu and was quick to offer recommendations in food and cocktails alike. Definitely will return, this place is great for special occasions.

The food was fresh and had good flavors, but the king crab leg portion was quite small given the high price tag. A glass of wine was requested to be served with the entree, but was delayed until a while after the entree was served. The dessert presentation was messy, but again, the flavor was good.

Fantastic food and service. On Monday’s for $89 they bring you stone crab until you say stop. With a salad and side it’s a great deal if you are craving stone crab. It’s not on the menu or advertised you have to ask for it. Extensive wine list and upscale setting.
