    It was just an okay experience. Our server took over 25 minutes to see after us. The mac and cheese honestly tasted like velveta and the crab fried rice wasn’t anything special. For the prices, I expected way more delicacy to my palette and exquisite cuisine.

The service from Tone was impeccable and the ambiance from the decor and the great live music made for a perfect dinner for my birthday and Mother’s Day! I would give it 10 stars if I could!

    This was our first time visiting the restaurant. The service was amazing. Although we were celebrating a birthday, the birthday girl didn’t receive her birthday cake. The food was ok. The cocktail shrimp were great. The crab cake wasn’t good at all. Our crab fried rice was missing the crab. The chicken was very bland. Based on the service, I would recommend the restaurant-just stay away from the crab cake and chicken.

    From the moment we entered Truluck's, we were impressed. There is a dress code (call me old fashioned, but I appreciate this); our server was a true professional; the service was impecable and the food was outstanding. We went for our 20 year anniversary. Our server recognized the occasion with a treat for us. Staff assisted us with transportation at the conclusion of the meal. This is a genuine fine dining experience.
