We were looking forward to the Red Fish with Pontchatrain sauce and were saddened to see that it wasn’t on the menu due to COVID—19. The meal that was ordered was okay but didn’t meet the expectations of what we’ve had in the past at Truluck’s.

We had the Giant scallops and the Giant prawns, both of which were fresh and expertly prepared. And giant they were, with neither my husband and I able to finish our meals...though we tried! Due to Covid restrictions, there are a couple of menu changes (i.e.there is a small charge for the freshly baked rolls; and the hot-house tomato salad is not listed, but can be requested), but the service is still excellent; and we felt completely safe dining here (A nice touch, is that you are provided a small bag to place your mask, so you don't have to leave it on the table).

Oh, and the chocolate cake is wonderful!!! (We took some home 'to go').

The prawns were a little over cooked. We sent it back in exchange for something else. The waitress was great. The fig Manhattan, I wouldn’t recommend.

Decided to try a new place for our Anniversary and this place did not let us down. We ran about 15 minutes late from our reserved time, due to horrible Westheimer traffic, I called in and they said it was fine. When we finally made it, valet was fast and polite, they quickly sat us down, the ambience was perfect/romantic, they had a pianist, the waiter was helpful and patient, and the food was absolutely delicious!!! We had a four corse meal with alcohol and it was very reasonable priced (2 glasses of wine, app, soup, seafood, and dessert [on the house]). Overall it was super awesome all around. This is definitely an establishment we will frequent more often ❤️.

Excellent food - the hugely generous portion of pan-seared sea bass laid on a bed of perfectly flavored crab fried rice with julienned vegetables was exquisite.

The crab cake comprised flaky, chunky whole crab pieces paired with a lovey dill yogurt sauce.

The seasonal green salad was light and summery with a good balance of ricotta and deftly candied pecans.

Topped off with a generous slice of key lime pie that shone with a strong lemony flavor, dense texture with a robust crust for balance.

Two cafe lattes were matched by attentive service and good ole ‘80s live music.

A great night out to be repeated in November when the stone crabs return!

I booked this dinner for my husband's birthday just a day in advance. I loved that instructions posted on the reservation were reviewed and satisfied. Our servicer was very nice, attentive, and he knew the menu well. He was able to pair our dishes with the right kind of wine.
We started off with the LOBSTER BISQUE | $14 bowl. I was very impressed with this bisque because it had lots of big chunks of lobster and was very flavorful. We also had the PARMESAN YEAST ROLLS made to order, finished with Maldon sea salt | $3. Amazing bread! So warm and delicious!
For dinner my husband ordered the PRIME RIBEYE* 18 oz. center-cut boneless | $59 and small lobster tail for $32. It was a big steak and he did not finish it but defiantly have it for lunch the next day. It was packed with flavor, easy to cut, and very juicy. I ordered the HAWAIIAN GARLIC PRAWNS sweet, firm Kauai shrimp with pineapple garlic sauce and coconut sweet rice | $ 36. The Prawns were peeled and cooked just right! For dessert we had this three layered cake that they set on fire to roast the marshmallow topping. BEST DESSERT I've ever had at a restaurant. They wrote Happy Birthday and the waiter waited until we had our cameras ready to capture the fiery moment. We had a great experience and can't wait to go back. All together we spent $199+tip. It was defiantly worth it.

The Hawaian shrimp had both pineapple and garlic - somewhat unusual mix of flavors. The crab rice was slightly spicy. All in all good food.

The restaurant and staff have clearly taken the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously. The staff were courteous, polite and were waiting on us all evening whilst remaining safe and correctly social distancing.

The cocktails and food were delicious and this is clearly reflected in the prices. It was a special occasion and it was definitely the price.

Would highly recommend to anyone.
