Nikki was great. The manager came by and introduced himself, and congratulated us. Everyone made our first wedding anniversary celebration extra special, and they had rose petals on the table upon our arrival. Excellent!

We had a great experience celebrating my mother's birthday at Truluck's. Our waiter, Rich, was outstanding. He really made the evening enjoyable. The stone crab claws were amazing. Great experience!

We were so excited to have our first Florida stone crab claw dinner of the season, but I guess we went too soon. They lacked their usual sweet flavor and were somewhat dry & “pithy.” My husband & I each ordered the platter of large stone crabs (which have gone up in price from last year), but were very disappointed in their taste. Our salads were delicious though. Our waiter seemed rushed & acted like he really didn’t want to wait on us. My husband even pointed out to me that the waiter always served him before me, be it wine, pepper for our salads, etc. That has never happened before at Truluck’s or at any of the numerous other restaurants we frequent.

I hope this was just a one-time occurrence as we really want to come back for a tasty stone crab meal and the great service Truluck’s usually provides.

We have been here several times but always for dinner. Although we still enjoyed our meal..my son’s steak was over cooked. He ordered med rare, but it came out medium and it was his birthday too! He was disappointed! The rest of our food came out as expected.

Norma Jean kept us in stiches! We were laughing so much. Took wife and close friend that comes to town annually for a get together. Ceviche was fantastic, great wine selection. Everyone loved their meal. I had swordfish steak.

This was a long ago favorite that we just returned to. The décor and seating arrangements are very appealing. The menu is functional with a tilt toward seafood. Service was nicely paced and helpful. Food is very good. Overall experience puts Truluck's back on our "go to regularly" list.

The food and service was outstanding! I was disappointed in where we were seated, especially since I had advised the staff that we were celebrating a birthday. I had to view the kitchen door opening & closing during the entire meal. Not the best ambiance.

Truluck's is consistently the BEST restaurant ever! Whether you're looking for seafood or beef, you can't go wrong. They are known for their Florida stone crabs, so order those while they're in season (Oct 15-May 15). Out of season, they still serve good stone crabs from other locations. The food and service is beyond compare!

We traveled from Baton Rouge, La to Houston Texas for a short vacation celebrating our 3 year anniversary. With many things planned reservations at Truluck’s was one of our most anticipated stops! From the moment we pulled into valet to the moment we received the car from valet Truluck’s staff was AMAZING! Their staff had rose pedals covering the table and wine ready. We ordered the filet and turf and surf which was executed perfectly and were served the house “Baked Alaska” which is a must have. Our waiter was on top of everything and never missed a beat. We have traveled around and this was one of our best experiences yet. We will be back to live this night again in the future! Thank you for being amazing!! You have earned a life time customer. Till next time!

I went there for a birthday celebration. As soon as we arrived, the host told you who’s birthday is it and they had some small decorations on the table. Everything was going fine, at first the waitress was very attentive. But then she was gone for a long time after the appetizers and we didn’t see her again until we asked for the check, which we had to wait for a while. There were four tables around us that were also celebrating birthdays. They all got some kind of complimentary birthday dessert and a card, and we did not. Is not about the complimentary dessert, but if you offer a service you have to make sure to be consistent with every customer.

everything was good except the service. The service was not bad but not up to your high standards. Maria waited on us and she seemed a bit inexperienced, not completely knowledgeable about the menu and not very fast but you were very busy. I asked about the Australian lobster tail and she started explaining about the south African lobster tails and had to go ask someone about the Australian lobster tail. I may be a little picky but I have come to expect excellent service every time I go to trulucks and this was not achieved this time.

We had an outstanding dinning experience at Trulucks today for lunch! Anne our waitress was superb! 5 star service by ev1 at the restaurant. The stone crabs were so fresh and delicious. The scallops were the BEST I have ever had. The red fish Pontchatrain was fantastic. And Trulucks carrot cake is seriously the best in Houston! Thank you again to Anne and the entire staff at Trulucks Houston for making my moms birthday so special!!

Have eaten at Truluck's in Dallas many times. Best Alaskan King Crab in the South. Was disappointed in the quality of the King Crab at the Houston Truluck's. Also, the presentation was not as good. In Dallas, the legs are split completely, so no messy breaking into the claws. Houston only had them partially split, which required some extra work to get into them. I will say that the waitress we had was wonderful. Very attentive and friendly.

Not only was the food and service wonderful, they always make special occasions even more than they have too. We went for our anniversary and they said happy anniversary many times, gave us a special dessert and checked on us the next day to make sure our experience was a good one.

The Campeche stone crabs tasted bland this trip. They were delicious in August, so it was disappointing. Our server, Jasmine, was great & the manager was nice to comp our entrees. We dine there frequently & can’t wait to return for Florida stone crab season in a couple of weeks!

Great experience at Truluck’s. The food is excellent. And the restaurant and service has a lot of little details that make the experience special. The biggest drawback is how loud the restaurant is - especially as it became more and more crowded

Live music! Person playing piano was playing the classics all night. Food was amazing. And the baked Alaska is a must if you have any room for dessert. Best steakhouse in Houston and it's not even close
