Overall very good
The crab cakes and crab topping had a lot of cartilage but flavor was good. Found the crab fried rice to be very salty

We had been there before and the food was excellent from start to finish. Unfortunately this time we chose the snapper and it was over cooked and lacking seasonings.

Of all the steak restaurants we always opt for Trulucks. The steaks are delicious, perfectly prepared and large enough to take some home. The sides are also delicious especially the hashbrowns. We also really enjoyed the Caesar salad. We order it whenever we dine out
and Trulucks' Caesar is the best especially with the anchovies (but you can order without).
We went for our daughter's 11th birthday and she loved the flaming Baked Alaska dessert!
We can't wait to go back, SOON!

It’s not a place we would normally go for a family dinner. As a thank you to 2 of our children (the other 1 is in back @ college) for being a huge help during holiday break we decided to splurge a bit. Reservation was on time, staff was very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately my sea bass was undercooked and fishy tasting. The other 3 meals were very good. Dessert was excellent. One of the best Key Lime pies I’ve tasted in a long time! The most impressive part was the way the waitperson and Manager handled the concern. We will definitely go back based on the customer service alone.

Had a great meal at Truluck’s- three of us had delicious jumbo shrimp cocktail and fantastic large wedge salad and mixed green salad big enough to share! Spectacular sea bass prepared perfectly- seared tuna with delightful sauce yummy creamed spinach and veggies. Great service!

Had planned on dining at another restaurant but stopped here for a drink on the way. JJ at the bar was super friendly as was the entire bar staff. Could tell they had a lot of "happy regulars", always a great sign! Impressed with the back bar wines - all in cases with some type of system to ensure freshness. Anyway the bar was so great we decided to cancel our other reservation and eat in the dining room.
The host was great, (Allegro?)seated us in an awesome romantic booth. Our server Luis was outstanding. Had great recommendations and was attentive but not overly so, we lacked for nothing.
We were checked on during meal by the gentleman that seated us, did not catch his name but kudos for his kind and genuine approach.
One slight negative was the manager Javier stopped by and kind of "threw" his card on table. I totally dislike a "table touch" that feels required and lacks concern or purpose.

The wait staff are tremendous. They appear to genuinely care and are highly skilled and are personable. We really enjoyed the food and the ambiance of this place as this well. We're from out of town and rely heavily on ratings as we pick which restaurants to eat at. We were excited for our reservation, and they didn't disappoint. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this place.

Service was very good. Unfortunately, they need 3 “Managers” running around as a customer service complaint department to make things right when the food gets screwed up.
Without getting into details some of ours was sent back and they made things right. Fortunately generally the food is good so if they could get the kitchen act together, it would be a good place to go.

The service is outstanding and the choices of meals is overwhelming, they have everything! We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meals. The wines were great.

The food was excellent. The service was not what we would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Plates, when finished were left on the table for well over 20 minutes. From the time we sat down until we left was almost 2-1/2 hours.

A gracious “welcome” at the door sets the tone for the evening. Piano music in the background, ambient lighting & immediate water & bread (nice choices) service start the dinner off right. The server was a pro in demeanor & the presentation of crab selections of the day, answering questions succinctly. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want the server to be my new best friend.
Our party of 5 went here for the seafood and will be returning to experience other selections. The chef understands the delicacy of fish and that taste shimmers through in all different preparations.
If you’ve read this far, just make that reservation. Disappointment is not an option here.
And save room for dessert...
