Overrated & pricey. Food & ambiance are excellent, service & cocktails were disappointing
Great food. Great service. Live music piano.
The service was very good. Attentive but not over bearing. Food was very good. We both had the grilled salmon cooked medium. Both were a little under cooked but still delicious! Will return again.
Excellent meal last night - the highlight was the service - two recommendations;
1. Try the meatball appetizer and the surf & turf
2. Ask for Sam! - awesome service and enhances the entire experience
Excellent steakhouse. Steaks are very good, cooked under high heat so outside is crisp and inside nicely medium rare as ordered. Wine list if excellent. Service was very good.
The food and service were impeccable. I love this restaurant!
Was made sick do to bad oysters
Fixed price Power Lunch menu is an excellent value.
This was our first time to Truluck. Our group gets together every 3 months and tries different mainly steak places. Server was attentive, but really did not listen to what we wanted. We ordered a chilled seafood platter for starters. We like crab and we asked about the soft shell crab that was part of this appetizer to see if the shells were easy to navigate. Server says yes no problem, but they were a pain to deal with. Got several small pieces of the shell in my mouth. Too much work. Shrimp and lump crab were good though. Then I ordered the steak special which was a bone in NY strip. It came out luke warm at best. I had put several of the sides on and then asked our server to just heat the steak up a little. It came back hotter and also completely well done. Steak was not even enjoyable and the sides I had put on my plate were gone. So they did bring us new sides which we said we really did not need. The crab fried rice was not good. Caesar salad was pretty good as were the hash brown potatoes. Unfortunately with all the great steak options we will not be returning.
Excellent , very service oriented, staff and mgmt on site was very attentive and a lot of attention to details, food outstanding..
Nice, but not impressed.
We love the cocktail hour music and menu. A terrific place to enjoy cabaret music and first class food, seafood, beef, whatever!
Celebrated my fiancé’s birthday. We enjoyed ourselves. Liked the live music and bar.
Our server Arik was attentive and overall gave us time to review the menu. Pacing was great too. Food is not the greatest for the price it’s given at.
Great business lunch - the power lunch special is a great food at a great value.
We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve prix fixe dinner at the Truluck’s downtown and were blown away. The two beautiful dining rooms, each with their own character, had a terrific ambiance. The food - all of which is also available on the regular menu - was top notch (especially the Dover sole and crab cake). And the service was perfect. Sean, our server, was top level. And Jimmy, the floor manager I think, made everyone feel like a VIP and old friend. Just an amazing experience...
From the time we pulled up to the valet to the time we left you couldn’t ask for a better experience. The service was fantastic and the food was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back. A very elegant and energetic place
Great! Wonderful service and very festive to celebrate a special birthday.
Best birthday ever
The service and ambiance met my expectations. I highly recommend seafood lovers to try the crab cakes - Delicious!
Loved everything about this restaurant!!!!
First time visited, it started with us having a drink at this visually stunning bar waiting to be seated. A young talented lady at the piano, singing popular songs. Nice start.
Next, we were seated and the waitress was detailed and attentive. Our food, courses, were very good.
Overall, great atmosphere, excellent service and a memorable Christmas eve meal. We will return again.
We dined at Truluck's on Christmas Eve. Service was wonderful, and we appreciated the complimentary glasses of sparkling wine. The atmosphere was upbeat, the service and pacing were wonderful, and the food was uniformly great (our group of four enjoyed calamari, sea bass, striped bass, filet Oscar, bone in ribeye, baked Alaska, chocolate cake and cheesecake). There was something for everyone, including our college age children. We will return!
We celebrated Christmas Eve at Trulucks with friends and family. The entire evening was fantastic! Food, service and restaurant were all lovely. I will definitely be back.
Manuel and Dimitro made our Christmas dinner very relaxing and wonderful.
food was great our server Michael was excellent
fantastic food. great ambiance. expensive but worth it
We went to Truluck’s for dinner - wife, two young sons - and had a great time. The best part of the experience was the service. Our server, Eric, was fantastic. Attentive without being intrusive, he and the rest of the serving team met all our needs. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Dark wood tones, candlelit open space. The live music was nice but a little loud. We sat at a booth which was very spacious for four.
The food was perfectly solid. I had the 20oz ribeye, my wife had the 6oz lobster tail stuffed with crab cake, and the boys split crab fried rice and calamari. The ribeye was fine - not the best steak I’ve ever had, but perfectly good. They smothered it in a bleu cheese sauce, which I didn’t realize it came that way and would have asked for it on the side. $52 steak? Eh, probably not. But good. My wife really liked the lobster tail and the portion size was just right for a meal. The crab fried rice was very good and at $16 was a good deal. The portion was enough to share with 3-4 people, as a side or as a meal for one.
My wife and I had cocktails and they were above average. We finished the meal with baked Alaskan, which was also above average.
Overall, $230 with tip. A nice experience and great service. Not sure we would do it again, though.
I had no idea they have Happy Hour everyday. The food was superb I will be visiting again
Great food, service and ambience! Will return
Ok, it wasn't "perfect" but it was really really good. If I could have changed anything it would have been the steak plates coming in way too hot (ended up cooking my son's medium well steak to a very well done steak) and a waiter with a touch more pizzazz (and around a touch more). Still, the manager coming over and dropping off his card was a nice touch, the sea food was amazing (had both the sea bass and the tuna - and even though we had ordered the tuna app and got the full meal, it was amazing so we said nothing). Wine was reasonably priced as well. Going to go back off peak and see if they can do even better - still, no hesitation in recommending this place.
Food was great, unfortunately the server wasn’t that wonderful. Having been to other restaurants of a similar caliber, must admit some disappointment overall
Husband & I went for my birthday and the service, meal, & ambiance did not disappoint. Steaks were well done but not dry, nice selection of sides & dessert was presented with flair. Live music was festive but not overbearing, we'll definitely return.
Great table and great service.
We had never been there. Come downtown once a year for our anniversary. What an awesome treat. It is clearly the best restaurant we have been two in this area. If there were 6 stars we would have picked that. Best anniversary dinner ever.
Great food and service. Highly recommend the carrot cake!
Fantastic service from start to finish. We mentioned it was a special occasion and had a free champagne toast and celebratory desert.
Great food! The tuna tartare, scallops and crab cake were all incredible.
I especially appreciated the follow up call the next day to see if we’d enjoyed it.
Looking forward to enjoying the live music in the bar soon!
Phenomenal service and food! Exceeded our expectations.
Great food. Beautiful rom. Friendly, helpful service. Will definitely recommend Trulucks and will be back
