Loved the live piano music! The popover bread was delicious and airy. We enjoyed our meal from start to finish. A wedge salad, bone-in ribeye with a crab topper, and glorious mashed potatoes. Service was polite, prompt, and engaging. As we were there visiting family members, lots of “catching up” occurred. Our servers gave us room to enjoy our meal and conversation without being overbearing or absent. It was a lovely evening.

We were surprised to find such an affordable lunch menu. The selections were ample as were the portions. Everyone left with a doggie bag. Delicious food with impeccable service every time I visit.

From the minute you walk in the customer service level is tops. The staff was friendly, the food was top notch, and our server Eric made this a great experience. The added bonus was the music (live piano) that played in the background. A great experience!

Immediately walk in the door and 4 different people greeted us and shook our hands. Was a bit over the top for me. We had a fabulous table and nice live music playing. Cocktails were great and our waitress was fantastic! It went down hill from there related to the food.

The Salt & Peter Calamari had no seasoning! We were expecting something and it came with small pieces of calamari and lots of sautéed vegetables. The sweet Asian sauce was like you could get from a jar, the other one was unique and better.

Our salad was tasty, but the crab fried rice had very little crab and we split the scallops which were 8 small scallops and half of them had no seer on them. They were still very white with no caramelization.

This was our first to Truluck’s as we heard great things about it and were underwhelmed for the price. Might try again in Austin as everyone has off nights but was a damper on our Friday night date night.

Fish was way too rare - shipped from Siberia I was told by Rose. Restaurant had mildew smell. Waitress Rose was very nice. Food over priced. Need to have tap beer. Bottles only. My wife did not like taste of her order either. Even with the decent reviews you always take a risk trying out a new place. 1.5 to 2 stars.

Wow! Simply tremendous. The dinner was to die for. Without a doubt the Wife & I felt this is the best seafood restaurant in Houston. She had the hot n' crunch trout with a side of mashed potatoes with lobster, while I had the red fish pontchartrain - Delicious! The ambiance was amazing and the service was exceptional. We will 100% be back to try all the other dishes Trulucks offers.

Truly excellent restaurant, with a wonderful chef and outstanding food, and justifiably famous for their stone crab! However, the service could be better. Our waiter brought our dinner before we finished our salads, we had to ask twice for hot butter instead of their mustard dip, and there was quite some confusion on the dessert!

The place was packed at 715... it must have been for the Monday -All You Can Eat... the noise level was too loud for us to hear our server - she did have a soft voice and it did not carry - but my parents could t hear anything.
I do like the candelabras that are added for larger tables.
I did participate in the All You Can Eat and was not disappointed (except for not beating the 42 High). My other diners enjoyed their fish selections very much. The only disappointment was the Filet. It’s was not very tasty and a bit chewy.
I do appreciate the Baked Alaska for celebrating my bday (miss the Carrot Cake that used to be offered ).
I did notice they are trying to make some nice changes in presentation etc- all really nice.

This was my second visit, which unfortunately didn't live up to the first. Food quality remained excellent while the service was a bit lackluster. Call me crazy, but if you're paying $70+/person for a meal then you shouldn't have to repeatedly ask for your tea to be refilled - or wait for the lone side dish come out 10 min after entrees. Maybe it was simple oversight, of course no one is perfect - but, standard protocol would be to apologize for the mistake and comp the side dish. No such service in this case. And maybe I'm a bit salty since I hyped this place up to the folks I had invited for dinner.

Now I wouldn't turn down an invite to dine here again on someone else's dime, but I also won't be booking another reservation to spend my own money here - too many other great options in Houston.
