    Well I had a lovely experience from the service to the food to the nice atmosphere, but the valet they have STEALS! I enjoyed my entire night. Just to come to my car and find it’s ransacked through! My entire middle console was dumped out into my passenger seat & the money I had inside taken! . My Mercedes’ guide book was taken out of my glove compartment and was on the floor. My registration is MISSING! It was pretty late when we left. I immediately called up there to tell them about it and they told me they have nothing to do with THEIR valet service. That I need to call the valet company and take up the complaint with them!!! What kind of non sense ? So now I’m waiting til 3pm today to go back up there and demand they do something about what happened! I’m on vacation I’m not from here and now I don’t feel safe or like I can trust that I can even use valet in DC !

    My best friend and I went to dinner at 6pm. The restaurant is large, clean and very welcoming. We started with the Parmesan yeast rolls and calamari. Both excellent. She got a dirty martini and I got the old fashioned- both great. For entrees I got the branzino and added garlic mashed potatoes, and she got the sea bass. Both were delicious. I asked for no olives and they accidentally omitted my capers as well so our server brought me some. John, our server was great. He did go missing for about 15 minutes towards the end of our meal and we asked someone to find him for us so we could pay and leave. Some notes- make sure you tell them you want tap water not flat water, or you’ll pay $8 for a bottle of Voss. He snuck that in there without telling us there’s a difference and when we noticed another table had “regular” water, we switched. Everywhere else I’ve been it’s either flat or sparkling. So we assumed the flat was the regular free water. Next the music reminded me of a cruise ship. It was bad. I assumed it would be more of a jazz pianist- soft tunes to eat an upscale dinner- but no. Loudly and badly covering Watermelon Sugar while I’m eating a $60 branzino isn’t exactly what I had in mind for this style of restaurant. I’m not sure if it’s more of a sexy date vibe later in the evening- again we were there at 6pm. Also, they aren’t strict on the dress code AT ALL. I saw biker shorts and sports bra sets, t-shirts, etc.. So if you’re looking for an upscale, quiet, seafood restaurant that sticks to their dress code and doesn’t add things to your bill, this may not be the place for you. Overall, the actual food was great and I would probably return with friends and try brunch as well.

    I was incredibly disappointed. I’ve been to Truluck’s in Chicago and Miami and was so delighted. Unfortunately in DC, I wasn’t that even greeted. The host is as too busy talking to another employee. The waiter was horrible - couldn’t explain the menu, the servers spilled food while serving and just left the food on the table. The oysters were tiny and over priced. Truly a disappointing experience.

    Sea bass is amazing. Restaurant is pricey but some signatures like the sunken treasure whiskey and port cocktail, the sea bass, the crudo and the carrot cake with pecans and caramel sauce make you come back. Downsides are the price and not a big selection on the menu. Definitely check the menu before booking a table. My personal experience has been excellent and in the DC location the gentleman on the piano is amazing.

    For someone who eats seafood also the time , the food was not up to the hype. I have a recipe normally very similar to their branzino & it taste similar to The Grille branzino but cost more. The same goes for the miso sea bass & salmon. Maybe next time I’ll try something specific to this restaurant.

    Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations. The food arrived cold and it was not as tasty. The Yeast Roll was great and so was the carrot cake. Everything else was mediocre and definitely not worth the $300 bill. Very disappointed.

    $100 for salads and iced tea for two… really??! Be forewarned that they add 18% service fee to your bill, regardless of how many people in your party. This is in very fine print on the website and feels like a scam. I called and requested an itemized bill, which was never provided. Would NOT recommend!

    This was our first time there. It was an experience. From start to finish it was amazing. We dressed up and fit right in. The food was amazing, we got the sea bass, broccoli and mashed potatoes. The drink we had was the viola. That drink has smoke which was cool! We ended the meal with carrot cake. Everything was great and I would highly recommend coming here if you want a grown and sexy place to go. They even had a pianist playing and singing songs. I can't wait to go back.

    Food was pricey but good. The only thing that ruined our experience was the service. Our server, Marissa, came around maybe once every half our. Even the managers seemingly avoided the 2nd floor area so we couldn't even ask anyone to find our server for us. We watched them check on so many tables except ours and the 3 near us. If you're considering Truluck's, maybe request a first floor table b/c that's where all the servers and managers seem to like hanging out.

    As always Truluck's exceeds expectations. The food was delicious, the service outstanding, the piano player/singer is amazing and the staff continues to go above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was outstanding. I don't know how the chef prepares the broccoli but it is my favorite side dish on the menu! Who knew a vegetable could be so good! I'll be back very soon!

    There was a mix up by the host with our request for a booth. The host noticed her mistake after seating another couple at the booth, so there was a additional wait for another booth table. While waiting we received exceptional service from Ms. Iesha. Once we were seated at the correct table we were waited by Ms. Gina who went above and beyond by being very attentive. Ms. Gina made our night perfect, due to her exceptional service. I look forward to coming back.

    This was a treat for my friend as it was a birthday visit for him . The ambiance is gorgeous and the staff members were on point from the hostess to the busboy. Our server Jamie was superb in her mannerisms, thoughtfulness and she knew her job in detail. She should give a class on HOW TO BE AN EXCEPTIONAL SERVER. The shrimp cocktail, calamari, voilas, lobster rolls and the crab cake sandwich were all placed in divine presentations. The food choices we found scrumptious. We were offered a birthday surprise of baked Alaska and treated to take home carrot cake. This really is a place to visit if you like a first rate dining experience.

    Second time in Truluck's and the food was excellent,just like the first time. We enjoyed the napoleon appetizer and the tuna crudite, the tuna was fantastic! The pickled watermelon radish was very nice and perfectly paired with the dill and the capers. The yellowfin was delicious! The pan sear was masterful! But the highlight was the crab fried rice - just hands down must have! Fabulous. The desert was very good too, we chose the flambe and although we were full we enjoyed it!

I was there celebrating a new job with friends and family whom also had other things to celebrate. She was personable, very informative on everything on the menu, and made us feel like no question was too big or too small. The food was incredible and the portion sizes were also more than enough. I look forward to going back to Truluck's.

    Definitely worth the experience! My waiter was Tone and he was attentive to all of our needs. The greeters were equally as friendly. Our food was fantastic but I wish I would have listened to the recommendations versus getting the rice. It was sweet; good but not what I was expecting. Make your reservations now!
