I have been to Truluck's a few times. My first time was a few years ago when my friend and I celebrated our birthdays here. Our original party increased in size at the last minute, but they were kind enough to accommodate this change and give us one of the private dining rooms. I still remember the excellent service and... More

Just simply great! Food, presentation, wine choice, service ... I made a note on the check about the filet ordered for the kids, excellent taste but too spicy for them and I have been immediately called by the manager! They care.

Just dined at Truluck's for our 35th wedding anniversary and had a fantastic dinner. The mizo glazed Chilean sea bass was absolutely superb!! Service was outstanding and our waiter (Chic) met our every needs. The wine list is amazing and make sure to save room for desert.

Dinner, Sat night, party of 4. Pre-meal bread (warm) was really good. Crab cake ($18) was as rumored: one of the best around! 7oz filet mignon ($37) was very tasty and well-prepared. Service was excellent. Ambiance was great. Only minor setbacks: was a bit too loud/noisy and lighting is a tad too dim. Parking is a bit tricky (under the... More

I had the pan seared scallops with a fresh crab and tomato salad. It was very good. The service was excellent, and our server was very attentive.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant which can sometimes build an expectation that leads to a less than anticipated dining experience. Not the case with Turlock's. The wine recommendation was a perfect compliment to the best Alaskan King Crab Legs that I have savored in years! I debated whether I wanted to battle the shell but it was... More

Dinner was an event! The crab cakes are absolutely to die for! Our fresh Chliean Sea Bass and Salmon entrees were everything you would expect right off of a dock. Perfect preparation, presentation, HOT and delicious. The service was excellent and ambiance delightful with live soft jazz filling the room. Yes, Trulucks is expense. Save your hard earned dollars and... More

Truluck's has really delicious seafood and their chilean sea bass is amazing. My wife swears by their seared ahi tuna as well. Flemings Steakhouse is right next door and we have had meals that taste like the Sizzler from that place. Do your special lady right and go to Trulucks.

Truluck's provides top notch service, that's for sure! Though we had to wait a little bit past our reservation to be seated, it didn't take away one bit from the overall experience we had recently at this fine restaurant. This restaurant is obviously a special occasion place, and that's exactly why we were there. In celebration of my Husband's 30th... More
