The escargot and Caesar salad were very good. Cocktails excellent. Filet mignon good. Prices are expensive compared with similar restaurants nearby.
The BAD part of coming to this location is always the parking. They offer Valet, however, many people like myself do not want to have a teenager or very young adult driving their car, and the valets take all the spots near the front of the parking area, so we have to walk, with wife in heals, very far so the valets should be the ones walking/running far to earn their pay. Really makes me think twice when choosing a restaurant and on other occasions have gone to other restaurants where the parking is not such a challenge. This has been a problem for well over 10 years at this location. I mention it every time we go here but nothing seems to be done about the issue. What a shame as it is the beginning and end or the experience so it really taints the other parts greatly.
I had a blast birthday dinner, very tasty, love this place
Tracy was wonderful and the food was amazing!
Amazing service and great food...definitely going back.
Perfect! Made the birthday celebration so special, even baked Alaska for dessert! To top it off, they called the next day to ask how it was.
Fabulous. Yummy. All you can eat crabs were spectacular.
Poor service. Long wait time fo r appetizer and desert when restaurant was empty. Waiter was courteous
Every element of the experience is designed with you the consumer in mind. I selected the restaurant based on the menu, which did not disappoint. However the ambience and quality of service by the entire staff added to a very pleasurable experience for my wife and I. We both had seafood dishes, but the aroma of the steaks passing by almost had us second guess, but definitely a big motivator to return.
Great food service and kind and diverse servers
We had company in town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so we made our reservations at Trulucks for our celebration. Our server was excellent and helped us make gluten free choices for two in our party. Our experience was wonderful, as usual. Trulucks is our go to place for holidays as the staff and food never disappoint.
We visited Trulucks for the first time and realized on a Holiday it may or may it be up to its potential. Upon entering the hostess was very pleasant and we were seated at the time of our reservations. The atmosphere was very nice and so we figured we would be good to go. From that point on the entire experience was disappointing. Our waiter was not welcoming and not attentive. He took our orders and his style was very rushed. All six of us received cold food. When we asked for some hot gravy to try and remedy, cold gravy was brought and only two small servings. The family style sides were not enough for a table of six. None of the six finished their meals. We looked forward to the dessert and I can honestly say all six said it was the worst Pumpkin pie they every consumed. Needless to say the dessert was just left there. We didn’t say anything because we figure it’s a holiday and we chalked it up to experience. The next day the Restaurant proactively called. I asked them if they wanted to know the truth because I’m not one for complaining. They said yes. They told me to expect a call from the General Manager. I’m still waiting. LOL. Would we go back? Nope. They lost their opportunity.
Food and service was fantastic!
Best steak I have ever had. Great service, great atmosphere. I had to leave a nice tip for the server since he surpassed my customer service standards and expectations. I will definitely go back.
We had a great experience at Trulocks. We truly enjoyed the food and the service.
This was my first experience at Truluck’s. Some of my close friends and other members of my dinner party rave about this place, so I had pretty high expectations. The service was impeccable and not a detail was forgotten. I even appreciated the tray of citrus slices for my ice water-with choices of not just lemon or lime but included orange and cucumber! My filet was cooked to perfection and my steak toppings were divine. Other members of my party delighted in partaking of the shellfish specialties. It was really nice how the service was both unobtrusive and also attentive. Our delightful waitress even gave me an excellent idea for my leftovers (including my dessert). We had the carrot cake, Baked Alaska and the Chocolate Bag for dessert. They were all delicious...BUT I loved the Chocolate Bag! It was big enough to share with at least four people. The presentation of all the food was artful and very enjoyable. The following day, the Restaurant even called to inquire about our experience. Truluck’s is definitely a place I’ll be visiting again and again.
We went to Trulucks to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived early for our reservation and was seated right away. Our server Andrew was fantastic. Very attentive and provided great service. We enjoyed the small touches such as rose pedals on the table and the baked Alaskan dessert. We enjoyed the live music and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. I had the Australian lobster tail and my wife had the surf and turf. We both enjoyed our meal so much we ate all of it! We will definitely be back.
Just a side note, valet parking on the weekends is $10, kind of steep, not sure if this is Truluck's offering or the shopping centers. Would be great to have free valet for eating at the restaurant.
We loved our evening at Truluck’s. It was too expensive even for a wonderful collection of all the parts. For three people who didn’t order a bottle of wine (3 cocktails and three glasses of wine) our bill was almost $700. It’s over the top. 4 jumbo crab claws at 120 per, two sides and a dozen oysters. You tell me...
The waitstaff was excellent. The food was excellent. The room was, as always, atmospheric and excellent. But $700. Is just too much.

Outstanding service and food from start to finish. This was for our team holiday dinner and everyone had a great time and enjoyed the meal immensely. An unforgettable dinning experience with such friendly, considerate and funny staff! (I will always remember the Baked Alaska, so delicious!) It's a place that ticked all the boxes: Food, Service, Ambience. Love the classic feel of the restaurant! You have the BEST staff work at your Fort Lauderdale location. Definitely putting Truluck's on the top of my list when I have visitors from out of town.
The food and the service was amazing! We had a good time.
Although it was appropriate and appreciated when the dessert was removed from our bill, it didn’t excuse the two errors (out of five food items) that occurred: The side dish of broccoli was extremely overcooked; and the coffee was not tasty at all. When we replied to the restaurant survey and mentioned these issues, the manager was quick to call me. He had an explanation for the broccoli (some other guests had requested that the broccoli needed to be cooked much more...and the kitchen sent it to the wrong table). And he thanked us for letting him know about the coffee so he could fix the machine (!) soon.
At this price point, we expect a seamless experience, and hope that the restaurant will correct these issues in the future. Mistakes happen. At least the seafood was fresh and delicious. Maybe we will return...but not too soon.
Service and food were excellent.
Filet was cooked to perfection.
Waiter was excellent.
Our new favorite restaurant
The food was AMAZING. I would reccomend Trulucks to anyine wanting excellent seafood.
Very bland food. The Carb cake was very good but everything else very bland
The staff from the moment that you arrive to the moment you leave wonderfully kind. The food is amazing we had the lobster bisque, red snapper, and lobster mash. Every thing was fresh and delicious. Will definitely return and recommend.
I had a great experience. Everyone there made it a Special night for me and my boyfriend
