A dinner with my wife, food was ok but not outstanding. The martinis were not done right 2 times, made with too much salty olive juice, although we told our server we didn’t want “dirty martinis”. Not the Truluck’s we used to know….

A nice place, but not as nice as it was. During COVID, the menu was significantly reduced. Awesome clam chowder eliminated. Used to have a wonderful seafood salad -- all seafood -- which is now mostly lettuce. Good restaurant -- just not as good as it was

Very well prepared food with nice presentations. Our waitress was very attentive and on point. Found it to be a little on the expensive side but everything was very good.

Food was great as always, service was top notch as was ambience with the exception of the 2 kids playing in the
open booth across from our table relatively unmanaged as we celebrated our Anniversary. Wine is over priced, 4x mark ups on wine is a thing of the past. All in all highly recommend.

The shrimp cocktail and crab Louie were amazing. We were a little disappointed in the quality of our service and entrees, the broccoli side was cold and cut is huge pieces that were very difficult to cut. The crab cake tasted fishy. For the price of the food I expected more quality and thought.

Took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. The place was quiet and food was delicious. They gave us a special table for bdays and the waiter gave us a free dessert in honor of the day. Highly recommend the lobster bisque and sea bass with crab rice. Delicious!

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving lunch at Truluck’s. Everything was excellent. We were greeted and promptly seated. Service was impeccable from beginning to end. Rick was our waiter and was attentive but not intrusive. He made the lunch delightful. The food was wonderfully prepared and tasteful. Our afternoon was delightful.

Disappointed in the branzino. More like a rainbow trout just meatier. For $58 a piece of fish of that caliber should be prepared in hot oven while still in the skin and cut open table side. Poor pairing of some cream/spread on the side. My salad was over-dressed with a sweet dressing. And my husbands rice was also sweet. The rolls and butter were delicious and of course the Cakebread Chardonnay excellent. Our waiter was very nice but talked so quickly we barely understood him. Sadly we won’t return.

Glad we celebrated a birthday here! It’s nice to be reminded what good service is- our server Justin was excellent, and the food was great start to finish. Recommend the snow crab, and the baked Alaska to finish.

The food is always outstanding. All three of us chose to have a light meal--a salad and a crab cake. The salads were perfectly made--just the right amount of dressing for the greens. We all had one issue with the crab cakes. The dill sauce was too strong. But that wasn't much of a problem (or a complaint) because the crab cakes were absolutely delicious without the sauce!

Alexandra was an outstanding server! Our table and food were incredible. The manager stopped by our table to welcome us and thanked us for dining with them. I always appreciate that!

My friend ordered the sea bass, my husband ordered the Alaskan king crab and I ordered the vegetarian meatballs. Everything was incredible!

We started with the yeast rolls which were yummy.
My husband started with the wedge salad and said it was so good.

We ordered the creamed spinach and Parmesan potatoes as our sides. Both were delicious.

The hand crafted cocktails were so good. I ordered a lemon drop martini and my husband ordered the sunken treasure.

We will be back!

The restaurant was beautiful, ambiance was nice. Waitress was nice, seems she had a cold, which was a bit of a turn off being that she was sniff when her nose would run. I guess she could not help help it, but the these are COVID days so I would have felt better if she had a mask on.

The food was cooked good, wish there were more options. The drinks SUCKED big time. Overall good experience tho

We often come to Houston on business and always include a trip to Truluck’s for dinner. The food is exquisite and the service is superb. We always enjoy the food but the attention to details makes it a delicious and delightful experience. We love this restaurant and always recommend it to everyone we know.
