    Service was great but the party in the bar with 3 tables together near us was so loud we couldn't ourselves talk. The food was delicious but the prices are so high now that it really wasn't a value. No wonder the restaurant was empty. Will not recommend until they get prices down.

    50th bday celebration for my hubby. Trulucks always go above and beyond. They added confetti to the table to enhance the celebration, even made an order of French fries for one of our guest! And of course the scrumptious Baked Alaska bday dessert never disappoints. Alway a wonderful experience!!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant, the food was outstanding and the presentation of each dish was photo worthy. Excellent service and ambiance too. Loved the lighted menus, every restaurant with lowered lighting should have these! Only request for improvement is to lower the volume of the music, a little too loud for conversation and the ability to hear others at the table.

    My wife and I always enjoy going to TruLucks. Whether it’s for our date night, or in this case a special occasion which was her birthday. And to always enjoy our time there, it truly wouldn’t be TruLucks if our best waiter “Wayne” wasn’t there to serve us. We’ve been going to TruLucks for many years and Wayne has been there for most of them serving us. He is more like family.

    Amazing food! The crab cakes, calamari, and yeast rolls for appetizers were devoured by everyone at the table. My ahi tuna and my husband’s seasbass were nothing short of wondrous delight for the tastebuds. The service was as splendid as the food. …and did I mention the exquisite wine selection? We will definitely return.

Our server David and everyone staff member that we interacted with was very gracious and made mention of our anniversary. We will definitely return and not just for special occasions, though Truluck is perfect for that.

    Our party had 5 guests - We were there to celebrate my mother’s birthday. She had a great time. She ordered the Norwegian Salmon, which is served with asparagus, and she had the creamed spinach, parmesan rolls and her appetizer was a crab cake - she loved every bite. Two of us had pan seared scallops, one had a 16-oz steak and another had vegan meat balls. Everyone left satisfied. Staff were very attentive to mom, making it a great experience for her.

    Had a most excellent time for our wedding anniversary. The staff greeted us with rose petals on the table. Our server welcomed us as did the manager saying happy anniversary. We were happy to see both the crab cake and the crab and shrimp napoleon were back on the menu - yes, we had both of them. The lobster bisque was quite excellent. Mains were the miso glazed sea bass and the sauteed yellowfin. Both were great. Dessert was their baked alaska which was a nice tough to finish the meal. We had not been to the Arboretum location before - have been downtown several times - but may return again - much easier parking. A great evening!

    Food was sub par. The lettuce for the Cesar salad came out 30% brown. In reality we should have requested they take it back to the kitchen. I have had salads from Mc Donalds with a better quality and taste. Other food was good, shareable sides were enough for two small portions. I would rather than charge more for more, than lead you to believe they truly shareable. This was the 3rd I have been here. There are better options for the price point.
