Great time at this fine dining establishment, the food was great and the staff especially the manager was extremely nice. I would definitely recommend going and getting the crab cakes they were the best I’ve ever had

It was our first time and we had a great experience. Food was delicious, service was on point, and live music is a nice addition. It is not a place for every weekend but at least for us would be a good one for a special occasion (a bit pricey). Overall, everything was awesome!

I would have enjoyed it more of a guy at the next table was wearing something better than an undershirt. A restaurant this nice should rewrite more of its guests.

Food was excellent, presentation was wonderful. The crab fried rice is always amazing and everyone enjoyed the appetizers which included the crab cakes, lobster bisque, wedge salad and shrimp cocktail. The shrimp on the cocktail look like colossal shrimp and the entrees were all divine. My favorite is the miso sea bass. You can’t forget the carrot cake:) All in all, it was a wonderful experience and service was amazing. My mom really enjoyed her birthday dinner.

The food quality was not as good as I recall it being before COVID. I love the miso glazed sea bass and crab fried rice. I ordered it and I had to force myself to eat it. My husband and I ordered the crab fried rice as a side and had to send it back as it was bland. We then ordered lobster mashed potatoes which we did not like either and had to send it back as well.

On a positive note the drinks were delicious. The service was excellent and the manager offered to comp the side dishes. However, the charge still came through for the whole bill and not the amount of the comped ticket.

An incredible experience from the moment we stepped out of the car. A hostess opened the door and welcomed us, the front desk staff greeting made us feel like we were the most important people that had stepped through the door. I have been to many fine dining establishments but this was truly an amazing experience that set the tone for the entire evening. The food was superb, the ambiance refined, the wait staff very professional.

The dining experience with Truluck’s is always wonderful and this visit was on par with those previous experiences. My wife and I were celebrating a special occasion and had the shrimp cocktails and crab cake for an appetizer, along with a couple of cocktails. Our server was wonderful and friendly and did a tremendous job ensuring that our experience was great. We shared King Crab legs as well as the crab fried rice and asparagus. The food was spectacular and we can’t wait to go back.

Service excellent
Food was good However It took around 35 min after we finished the appetizer to get the main entree
Way too long
Music was average singer doesn’t have a variety of music to play just limited play list, he should be able to play Elton John , frank Sinatra among others as the previous guy did
In general experience is good but this time below expectations

What a fabulous place! This was my first time to eat at Truluck's, but it won't be my last! Be sure to try the Cold Stone Crabs...they were delicious. The wedge salad was crisp and the parmesan bread was fresh from the oven. Lorena was our waitress and gave us exceptional service!

Truluck’s has been our favorite restaurant for over 10 years! It was only right to celebrate our anniversary here :)

Oliver, the manager, was amazing and helped us pick a great bottle of wine and our server, Twan(Tony) was awesome!

we would frequent this establishment three to four times a year and enjoyed it tremendously however it has declined in service and is most definitely over priced .
I live in Atlanta have family here in Houston so we always looked forward to coming to Truluck's for a night out yet it's just not the same experience. we typically, with four people would have a bill of about $350.00 however just three of us were there on 3/27/21 and our bill was $550.00 ( before tip ). example : 1 king crab leg ? $89.00
Not worth the trip to Westheimer or the woodlands !

The food and service were great. Ambience was great. the only thing remotely below par was the person doing the live piano work. A minor inconvenience, though.
