Best meal I’ve ever had. Decor, service, taste, etc were all 100%. They asked if it was a special occasion when we arrived and I let them know it was my birthday. At the end of the meal the manager came out and presented a gorgeous baked Alaska complimentary for my birthday and it was lit on fire at the table. Amazing!

Food was very good. Seared scallops were perfect! The pan-Seared salmon was cooked to my liking. We also ordered a starter of fried calamari which may very well be the best I've had. The sauteed mushrooms were so delicious and hearty. Our wait service was superb with the server being attentive and thorough. The Proseco was light and bubbly and paired well with the seafood. The crab cake left a lot to be desired with the crabmeat being mushy and not firm. It left me feeling very let down as I seriously had the taste for a great lump crab cake. The sauteed spinach was unremarkable, but I wasn't surprised as it's sometimes difficult to finesse spinach and lots of chefs/cooks don't realize that with spinach, sometimes less is more. By far the biggest letdown was the crab fried rice. There was far too much going on in that one dish and thereby hindering the crabmeat from being the star. It had a kind of "sweetish" flavor that felt out of place in this dish. I definitely wouldn't order that again. Overall our experience was a pleasant one and I'd pay again to patronize this establishment.

Our first experience at Trulucks. Everything was lovely. Our server was attentive and personable. This is a perfect spot for a special occasion or just a fun date night.

Dined with wife on a delayed Valentine's present and found all staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Ordered wine and appetizer (Oysters Rockefeller) and found them to be tasty but a bit grainy. Wife ordered stuffed lobster tail with asparagus and I ordered the salmon bearnaise with mashed potatoes. Entrees were well-presented and very delicious. We had to pass on the desserts but they also looked very good. Had a small snag as the Reward Card we attempted to use would not process but it did not take away from the pleasant experience we had. Will come back to try other menu items soon.
