I went with my son to celebrate our birthdays which are 2 days apart in January. We both had the Stone Crab all you can eat special available on Mondays for $85 each. It comes with a soup or salad and one side. We were not disappointed in any way with the quality of the Stone Crabs, lobster bisque or the creamed spinach sides. And since it was both of our birthdays, the restaurant served each of us a Baked Alaska on the house.

I also want to commend our server Andrew for the extraordinary service we received on our visit. I would certainly recommend Truluck's in Fort Lauderdale for any occasion dinner.

What a difference a week makes in service and hospitality compared to the last time I was here.
Party of seven got together for a family dinner and we had the best waiter to wait on us at Truluck... Steven was very attentive without hovering and got all of our varied dinner requests correct. A great Manager working that night who made sure we were enjoying ourselves. Live music with a singer who sounded a little bit like Janice Joplin helped all of us have a relaxing evening out.

Disappointed in level of service. Was not very crowded in fact, was less than half full. Drinks were slow. Entree my husband ordered was unavailable but were not told until our appetizers were served. Had a lovely complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary, but cappacino not brought until after we had finished dessert. Not our best dining experience.

The Service is just Fantastic! It is one of the best service I have receive and I have been to many high standard restaurants. There was a mixt up in my order, The waitress and the manager came quickly to resolve the problem. The Bisk soup is out of this world, you must try it. Cant wait to go back when I will be back in Florida.

I am new to the florida area and made reservations in advance to have a new years dinner there which happened to be my marriage anniversary as well...The food and staff were of quality standards and i definitely would come back..My only disappointment was telling the staff it was my anniversary while making my reservation, and expected that coming from NY and eating at the finer restaurants there, that someone in management should have come over to the table, introduce themselves and congratulate us...A standard up north!!

Lovely restaurant! My husband and I Went there for New Years with my sister and nephew . Very nice ambiance and it decorated for New Years with balloons etc. They sat us at a nice table right away after a warm welcome. Then they offered us a glass of champagne which was unexpected. A nice touch. My sister can’t drink wine she ordered a Lichee Martini which was delicious... she let me taste it. We were to share a first course and a dessert for two and then the next course and the main were for each person alone was. The first course and the salads that we chose were very delicious. My sister and her son had sirloin steak that was cooked perfectly and huge. My husband and myself had the filet Oscar that was cooked properly but not very flavourful. Not sure why. Desert was a chocolate cake with a hot sauce for all of us . Very good and very large. The waitress was great. Very attentive , helpful and fun! Overall a fun evening!

We go there because they have a gluten free menu (my husband has Celiac). We are willing to pay more for good food, but this time was not worth the money. We go in Dallas all the time but the Ft Lauderdale location needs some tweaking.

We went here on the last night of our honeymoon and it was fantastic! The servers were friendly and the food was great! We got soups, wine, entrees, and dessert! The Lobster Bisque is a must! We had a reservation for 9:30, but showed up an hour early and they were still able to seat us! Highly recommended for a romantic night or special occasion! Be prepared to spend a good amount of money, but it's definitely worth it!

Good but some significant misses. To be clear, the food and service were both good. However, several pieces of silverware were disgustingly dirty. That is not acceptable at any price point but especially at a location with these prices. It diminishes the experience and makes you wonder what’s happening in the back. The front desk and back of the house seemed frazzled despite not being that busy. In the end, it just did not feel like a luxury or fine dining experience.
