After we started eating, a new table was set down with 15 -20 people. It was placed so close to our booth that it was within arms length. Very poor placement and very uncomfortable given Covid restrictions. Expect more when paying TruLucks prices.

Once again, the evening was outstanding. Our server whose name was Brian, was the most attentive server I have experienced outside of TruLux. He catered to us nonstop yet he was not overbearing. My date had a New York strip sirloin steak which she raved about. I had the Seabass. We each had an amaretto sour. and to finish off the meal, we had fruity pebbles cheesecake. It was truly an amazing date!

Food was great, unfortunately our experience was spoiled by a valet parking team who forgets that they are also part of the customer experience.

We arrived to a half empty parking lot except with one little issue, all of the available spots where blocked with cones. I asked the valet if i could park and he said "only valet". Call me overly cautious but I dont want someone to mess with the inside of my vehicle with the same gloves on that he uses to park all the vehicles so I am not too keen in letting others park my car during a pandemic. He said I could park by the bank which was really far away from the restaurant.

This experience really took away from my meal and I wouldn't return to dine again.

Food was NOT worth the prices.
My seabass was undercooked.
I received eggs in my crab fried rice. It did not note eggs would be in a seafood based meal. Lower the prices to reflect the food quality or the food has to Exceed our expectations.

I’ve been to the Dallas location several times and have always loved every aspect of the meal and experience and was excited to visit the Houston location but sadly walked away disappointed. The service was great, everything else was subpar. Quality of food was a slight step above mediocre - the sea bass (our Dallas favorite) was not cooked well and the Tuna Crudo (never had this in Dallas) seemed rather basic. In addition, the restaurant didn’t have the same high-class feel that I expected. Tablecloths were thrown on without care, the booths and tables showed quite a bit of wear and tear and the attention to detail simply wasn’t there.

Too expensive for what you get. I ordered wedge salad and Salmon. Wedge salad, the lettuce was yellow and warm. Salmon was dry and over cooked. They comped the salmon but I still paid $32 for a wedge salad and 2 shrimp and a tablespoon of crab meat that had no flavor. Crab was soggy like it was previously frozen and thawed. I won't be back

This was our first time at Trulucks. The large dining area is divided with booths and other barriers that make it feel Covid-friendly. We had plenty of space between us and the next table. Not knowing the portion sizes, we over ordered...but were glad the next day when we enjoyed the left overs. We ordered scallops and sea bass as our main dishes and both were excellent. The Caesar salad was also excellent with fresh white anchovies on top. The crab and shrimp appetizer was good with very fresh crab and shrimp but could have used less mayonnaise which seemed to hide the delicious seafood a little. Our meal ended with a baked Alaska and coffee. Overall, a very fine dining experience. We will be back.

Rick was our waiter and superb. Made experience so special for my daughters birthday. Crab Louie app- divine. Lobster bisque- extraordinary. Wedge salad - super rich and yummy. Steak delicious and tender. Sea bass.......... dont think it was cooked through and rather fishy tasting☹️.Crab fried rice- delish.” cucumber slaw- where? i got chives and red bell peppers....
Wish the Chefs select menu offered a shrimp and or scallops entree likeThe Woodlands Trulucks does.
Lastly, Rick brought us a beautiful baked Alaska for dessert. What a celebration! ( also stars on table)❤️

I will leave this short a sweet. Great seafood restaurant very pricey so it is definitely not a every day kinda place. Just don’t with the steak ... just don’t (This is not a steakhouse so it’s pretty mediocre. ) Stick to the seafood it is really amazing. Drinks are amazing too. Desserts are amazing as well. Music is great but I wish the guy playing the piano was louder. I hate that people talk so loud in there so it take away all the ambiance. Great experience though I would return though.
