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.

Almost perfect night out. Waitress forgot our salad. She did apologize And gave us a salad to take home and we weren’t charged. Portions are very generous and excellently prepared. Had sea bass. Just fantastic. This is one of Houston’s best.

Food, drinks and service were excellent. One thing that really surprised me was that EVERY table was occupied. With COVID19, every other restaurant in Houston I’ve been to has reduced capacity and empty tables for more social distancing. Maybe Trulucks gets away with this because there are small partitions separating the booths. Except for the servers wearing masks, it appeared no different than normal, and the indoor crowd made us a bit uncomfortable. The table next to us was very loud - they were just having fun, but that noise also affected the mood, so not quite as romantic as I had hoped for. And I know there probably isn’t a dress code, but I saw a lot of t shirts and shorts. It just didn’t feel like the Trulucks I’m used to seeing. But definitely 5 Stars for food and service - excellent!

We had a dinner get together with friends which was their first time at Trulucks.

We had reservations but decided to sit in the bar area to enjoy the piano. But needless to say our waitress was not at all what we have experienced in the past. We had to continue to ask her for our appetizers and our last order of stone crab claws never came so we decided to leave.

I was highly disappointed in the service we received.

Maybe it’s COVID IDK. However, the service was terrible. Place has went downhill very far. Nothing like the past. I’m ok if that’s the best they can do given the parlance of our times, but then bring your prices down to match your service and quality.

Food and service are excellent. However, cocktails are very overpriced and you are charged $3.00 extra if you order a cocktail straight up - which is not disclosed on the menu, although your straight up drink is also less than a full glass as well. It should be one or the other: if there's an upcharge, disclosed it and fill the glass but do charge extra and short the patron as well.

We went for our 32nd anniversary and felt completely safe and welcome! We haven't been out at all since COVID, but we knew if anyone could do it right, it would be Truluck's. This has been our "go to place" for special events for years and we weren't disappointed!

Truluck’s is always a great place for dinner. Don’t know if our server was new or tired. She was just a little slow and my sis-in-law’s steak order was messed up - they fixed it of course . My Sea Bass and wife’s filet were perfect, as were all the sides. We should not have told them we had a birthday in the group because we would have liked to order carrot cake instead of getting the complimentary baked Alaska

Some of the food was good and some was not so good. No flavor to steak, or the veg. Server forgot my soup with other appetizer, then forgot to add the crab leg with dinner. Steak was over cooked (not servers fault of course) but extremely expensive for the level of quality. I understand mistakes happen. But when you go to a 4 star place. You expect 4 star service and quality.
