Everything was great, except we got the stone claws, and they were hit so hard, that they were a little gritty when eating them. Besides that, it was a great experience.

I sent back my dinner, as the steak was not properly cooked. We all refused to eat the brocolli and cauliflower sides and to their credit, we were not charged. This type of restaurant at their prices are not allowed bad food.

Excellent service and attentive to detail. Great selections for seafood and fish lovers, I’d recommend the miso glazed sea bass and the crab fried rice was scrumptious.

Fantastic experience. Sam our waiter was excellent. Kyle also did a great job supporting our party. Highly recommended the stone crab, scallops, & sea bass. Filet was ok but not excellent. Carrot cake with spiced pecans was THE BEST carrot cake I’ve ever had (they add them before serving so you don’t have to get them if you don’t like nuts).

They even called the next day to make sure all went well.

Will defiantly be back!!!

Visited Truluck's for the second time on Satuday night, food was very good but our service unfortunately was not.

To begin, when I asked to be seated at a booth I was told the booths are only for parties of 5 or more but there were multiple booths that were currently being occupied by 2 people.

Next, our waiter, Reese, did not introduce himself. I thought he was a bust boy until I finally asked him if he was our waiter and he simply replied "yes". Still no introduction...didn't even tell us his name until I asked him. He did not go over the menu or tell us about any specials or Fresh Fish of the day. He didn't ask if it was our first time....literally nothing.

My boyfriend asked to add onshrimp to his steak entree for a Surf & Turf and we were told he could only get it as a shrimp cocktail and not served hot....I also found that quite strange that he was not accommodated.

Love the food at Truluck's but this is my second time receiving bad service so I do not think i'll be back anytime soon. Would rather spend my money at the multiple other restaurants in Chicago that actually have good customer service.

An elite restaurant experience in all respects. From the valet letting the front desk know you have arrived to the Manager coming to the table to introduce himself, it is all class. The fish selection is extensive and exquisitely prepared. Would definitely be back.

The entire staff at Truluck’s was amazing and extremely accommodating to our 3 and 5 year olds. Several staff members who were not even covering our area went out of their way to speak to the kids. We all enjoyed the live music as well, which created a lovely ambiance.

The Seabass was melt in your mouth and the stone crab claws and bone in fillet with chef’s topping were also delicious. We will definitely be back and bring friends and/or family next time!

Although we had reservations, I was disappointed we had to wait around 40 minutes before getting seated.

Everything from the hosts to the server and the food. The baked Alaska surprise to celebrate a 21st birthday was above and beyond. Thanks for such a great evening. Will definitely be back every time we are in town.

Truluck’s never disappoints. Nice music in the bar and steaks cooked as requested. They were happy to accommodate our request to split their yummy garden salad. The only disappointment was the $95 bottle of Jordan cab which was not the fault of the restaurant. Jordan is hit and miss depending on the year. Should have looked it up first.

Except the way the reception took place to dine there is an experience. The young lady at the reception made me believe she thought doing me a favour finding a table for me when I told here that It was just me having dinner there that evening. Maybe she just had a bad day. However, that should not be the case at a high class, high price fine dining restaurant.
