Fine dining and very good seafood--special occasion place

Very nice dining room. Fancy without being too foo-foo. Some of the fish dishes were better than others. I had a blackened fish, but it was not spicy like I was expecting. Steaks were excellent.

We had been here about 6 months ago and had a great meal. Decided to return to celebrate two events. The salad was soggy; The tuna was good; but the roasted mushroom were dripping in a rich sauce- almost inedible. My husband's fish was good- but the rice, once again was too rich. We love spice, seasoning and flavor- but... More

We went here for my birthday this year. The food and service were amazing. The atmosphere was great we had a quiet and private booth. This meal was close to $300. We started with the baked goat cheese appetizer which was absolutely amazing along with a nice bottle of Prosecco. The we had the seafood platter for two (shrimp, crab... More

First time to this Truluck's. Our waiter was Will and he was fabulous all night. He made suggestions from and off the menu, attentive but not a bother. We had crab cake and lobster bisque for appetizers and salmon/ 7oz filet for the main course. Crab mac n cheese was really good. Chocolate cake for desert. Yum. Everything was excellent.

We just had the most enjoyable meal at Truluck's. The tomato salad was especially good. And the service was exceptional.

I took my wife to Truluck's for an intimate 20th wedding anniversary dinner. We have celebrated at Truluck's downtown location a few times over the years, but this was our first time at the Arboretum location. I made reservations through Open Table and referenced our celebration. We were greeted at the hostess stand with a congratulations and our experience just... More

Truluck's is an upscale seafood restaurant. The Happy Hour in the bar area is popular in addition to regular dining. Happy Hour hor d oeuvres are priced starting around $10. They are delicious and nicely plated. The regular dining prices are quite high but worth a business or special occasion visit.

We chose this location to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the door shown to our table and introduced to our server. Server was very knowledgeable of the wine list and menu and assisted us in ordering. Food and drinks were served promptly. All the food items were served in an attractive manner and at the proper temperature.... More

The food was out of this world, happy hour, atmosphere everything. Our waiter David was most professional and made it his goal that everything be perfect for the evening.

Really good food. We had crab cake appetizer. Great crab meat and sauce on the side. Had blackened redfish - it was excellent. Spicy. Yummy. Had a good glass of Pinot Grigio - Ponzi. Also had a cup of French pressed coffee - awesome. The whole experience was great.
