The ambiance here was amazing. The food was exceptionally delicious. And the waiter {John} gave outstanding service. My partner has tomato and some shell fish allergies and he made sure she didn't order anything that she would be affected by. He even went as far as helping her order foods that was safe for her to eat. Not many waiters take their time to do that, or even be as concerned as he was about my allergies.

Ours was a delightful experience from the moment we arrived. The valet was friendly and welcoming, we were greeted immediately upon entering by the James, Maitre D’, and we were met at the top of the stairs by a friendly member of the staff and escorted to our table. Our server, Schuyler, was very warm, friendly, and very accommodating. She was delightful and took very good care of us. As we waited for our entree’s, one of the managing partners of the restaurant, Mike, came over and welcomed us. Even another server stopped by to talk about our common interest in a particular diet. Everyone we met was friendly and made us feel very welcome and valued.

The food and the service were superb. The atmosphere was elegant and pleasant. We sat next to the front window and enjoyed the lovely view of the city at night. We will definitely go back to Truluck’s.

Only similar place I have for comparison is Shaw’s Crab house in Chicago. Truluck’s was good, but not great on the food. I had the seafood platter. I found the 4 crab claws to be a bit disappointing. They were good, but no more than that. Also a poor job of cracking the shells in the kitchen. The shrimp were huge and tasty. The oysters were fine. The blue crab cocktail was very good. The service was excellent. Very friendly waitress, and very attentive. To me the crab claws were star of the show, and they were no more than good. The only similar place I have for comparison is Shaw’s in Chicago, and their crab claws were clearly better. Overall a good meal, but for the price, I had slightly higher expectations.

The occasion was a St. Valentine's anniversary. All expectations were exceeded. Ambiance and service were fantastic. Every item we ordered was fresh, hot, and tasty. It is a $$$$ place.

This is my 3rd time at this location. I’m not sure where to begin but I gave this place an overall “very good” rating but I did have some issues that I felt were avoidable. We had a Sunday reservation at 5. We showed 20min early, which is before they opened. We were seated at 5:10pm. Not a big deal but I expect this place to be on their game, especially if we were the first customers of the day. Our server was polite and did a great job of explaining the menu and making us feel welcome. When we got our steaks, he never came back to ensure it was cooked to the right temp. Time passed and she really got into that steak and found it was MR instead of MW. He worked some magic, graciously comp’d the steak and offered free dessert. This was much better service than the last time I went, when they served me raw swordfish, took it back, over cooked it and brought it back out. I really want to love this place but I feel that the $200 I’d spend for dinner should come with flawless or at least near perfect service. It’s still on my list of favs..

Ambiance was perfect for our early Valentines dinner since we wanted to be out of the way of the rush. Dinner was amazing and our waiter was awesome. Our dinner consisted of lobster bisque, meatballs, asparagus, seabass, surf n turf, and a desert tower- all delicious!

Great location, great service. First floor seemed to be more vibrant- live music, but unfortunately we were sent to second floor. Food was very good, but as it was mentioned on previous reviews- it was over-salted and over-priced.

Everything was great. Ambiance is great for special outing. The only downside to the ambiance is that the female vocalist in the bar area sings off key. Making up for this is the food and service which are exceptional.

We dine here about once every few months and always have a great experience but this one was different. When we arrived at 5:45PM ON TIME, they told us it would be just a minute so we waited at the bottom of the stairs, then after 3 or 4 minutes the Maitre D gave us his card and said they would be ready in 30 seconds. Then after another 3 or 4 minutes we were directed up the stairs and taken to the VERY back of the restaurant in the wine display room in the back corner--with the main dining room on the west side almost completely open-- maybe 4 or 5 tables were taken, then when I asked to be moved (party of 4) they literally moved us 10 feet away and right by where they go in and out of the kitchen, and, no birthday mention which I specifically asked for when I made the reservation, then, when we confirmed, but, no mention until I had to bring it up. So, not a good experience and we spent $580.00.

I love the restaurant, the view and the vibe. Our waiter was lacking problem resolution skills when presented with an issue regarding the substitution of a side due to a dislike for the over abundance of onions in the mashed potatoes. Will know better than to order them on the next visit. Overall an amazing evening.

Upon entering the building, I was quickly told to remove my cowboy hat. There was no explanation why I was told that, but apparently there is a no hats in the building policy. Never heard of this sort of thing. I can understand being told to remove my hat at the dining table, but I never wear my hat at the table. Because of this, I was offended that the management would think I am so crude as to wear a hat at the table. That aside, the food was very good. We ordered the Australian lobster tail which was a bit pricey but worth it. If you are an urbane type of individual, you'll love this place. If not, you might be uncomfortable dining there.
