Poor Service, High Prices, Good Food

I went to eat Stone Crab in season in Fort Lauderdale. I was offended by the arrogant and equally ignorant server who could not inform me of the weight of meat that a plate of 8 pc of 3 oz shell-on crab claw yields. He was very condescending and refused to consult the manager or chef on my behalf... read more

The decor is beautiful, very chic. Most would say its elegant. The staff is very good. The menu is fresh seafood and aged beef. I had wild salmon, rice, french onion soup, house red wine.

The steak was like rubber but the shell fish was awesome. Expect to spend about $200 a person if your having drinks.

An excellent meal complimented by outstanding service. Yes it is a chain, however Trulucks has figured out how to make it good. Dishes are interesting unique and flavorful. A very good selection and the servers are anxious to accommodate any special requests. A pleasant atmosphere allowing for a relaxed conversational meal w family or friends. Definitely a place we will... More

Service was great. My wife went here because we wanted a romantic and casual luxury restaurant. Truluck´s FtLauderdale was spot on. Pre-dinner drinks was awesome. Starters were amazing and generous. Main course just as amazing. Loved the interior and the design of the chairs/sofas ans table. Loved this place!

Perhaps living on a budget has tainted me but I was a little appalled at happy hour prices for drinks and food! That said, everything here was superb -- martinis and appetizers and service and atmosphere. If you want a drink and a snack for $30 this is the place!

The service was fantastic. The waiter had great suggestions and even steered us away from items he thought we would not care for. The food was presented nice and was hot. It was busy and we did not have a reservation. We sat outside and at first we thought it would be noisy from the nearby traffic... but it wasn't.... More

Out of all the restaurants we could choose to dine at for Valentine's Day, Truluck's was a no-brainer. Excellent service, sexy piano music in the lounge and delicious food. We like the spacious feel and cozy low lighting. They are known for seafood so we engaged with the spicy and sweet halibut and blackened grouper. Both were great. The chocolate... More

This is fresh seafood at its best! The service was one of the best we've ever received in any restaurant we've ever dined at. I was originally somewhat disappointed to order the crab cake dinner and only receive one on the plate, but it was very large and it was 100% crab - no fillers !!!!!
