    Service was terrible- waited over 20 minutes after seating to have cocktail order taken and then another 15+ for drinks to arrive (all only after my spouse went and raised the issue with management). The food quality was very good, but every individual dish brought out was placed with the wrong diner. The experience came no where near the expectation and despite being a favorite restaurant for many years in Texas, we will not return to the DC location. Given the post tax automatic service up charge of 18.5%- for a party of 3- makes the experience even more disappointing.

    We visited for the first time for a celebration and had a mixed experience. The food was mostly great. We really loved the lobster bisque, calamari, parker rolls, and salad but the popular miso glazed seabass wasn't our favorite and we didn't see any crab in the fried rice it came with. Service was spotty. We had 4 courses, but spent literally 3 hours dining because of waiting in between each interaction with our waiter. We had to ask for small plates when our apps arrived, spoons for soup, silverware for our main course, and had to ask twice for the check at the end to the point that we were close to asking to pay at the front desk so we could head out (took 25 min from first request). Make sure you have lots of time!

    Excellent options for high quality seafood restaurant. The giant king crab leg was amazingly large and flavorful. The Oysters Rockefeller was excellent. The sea bass was cooked to perfection and the miso sauce was spot on!!

    After numerous visits this was the worse. It was a Saturday with the Cherry Blossom parade and nearby hockey game. Thus, we were surprised to find the resturant with 4 table occupied. After, our most disappointing dining experience, we left knowing why. We were immediately escorted to our table, but asked to be moved as on a chilly day outside the AC vent was close overheard, so it was cold. Our request to change our table was quickly granted - no problem. Once reseated, the server took a long time to take our orders. Once he did, every-time he left throughout dining his return was much too long. The wait time from our server had us puzzled rather the kitchen or serving staff was with a shortage of personnel. The prime meatballs were very good and my husband said the French toast was delicious. The Parmesan bread could have been a little warmer. Further, I was surprised that a bread basket isn’t offered. After waiting for bread, I discovered the bread on the menu for $6.00. Ok no problem, we ordered. Again, long wait and it arrived with the hardest butter to try to spread on a lukewarm bread. I simply ordered a side dish of crab rice which was plentiful in rice, but a search for bits of crab meat was challenging. Once my favorite establishment now has me disappointed. We asked our server, Carlos to not have us wait for our check as we couldn’t figure out if he was waiting our table during his break period. Since the gratuity was already included, we didn’t reward additional due to the service. I hope Truluck’s management addresses issues to correct matters for their prices to not only provide delicious entrees, but service to meet the expense. I certainly don’t mind paying for the price of meals, but to pay for less than service is not an option.

    Incredible crab claws, lobster tails, salads and sides. Outstanding services. The musician, John was amazing and amplified an already perfect special dinner with my family. I've eaten at Truluck's in San Diego, Dallas and Orlando before and, while expensive, the food was always out of this world. This occasion exceeded the past Truluck's experiences.

    An excellent dining experience. The menu was filled with delicious seafood and steak options. The crab cakes were the best I’ve ever tasted. The service was attentive and it was an enjoyable experience.

    My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Truluck. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent, and checkin was wonderful. The young man that was the matradee that afternoon was very welcoming and pleasant. What made our experience so wonderful was our server Veronica. She was extremely knowledgeable and very professional. Because of her and the food, we look forward to dining there again. We plan to specifically ask for Veronica.

    We came to celebrate a birthday. The service and food was outstanding. Our favorites were the grilled oysters, meatballs, crab claws, and crab fried rice. The crab claws are reasonably priced and they have a special on Mondays. There is a ginormous South African lobster tail that we look forward to returning for!

    Our experience was amazing; from the pianist and singer, to the friendly and earnest staff, and of course the delicious, filling food. This team deserves all the kudos.
