Truluck's, what a find! Yes, it's a chain, but we don't have them in Washington, so felt like a new experience. Extremely impressive wine list, had a white, red and a champagne, all very very good. Had the filet and crab mac and cheese on the side. Everything was delectable and perfectly cooked. Whatever they season their steak with is... More

We had a wonderful dinner starting with excellent pre-dinner cocktails since our table wasn't yet ready. The bar area is lovely and staff friendly. That night a very talented gentleman played the piano and sang - superb. Now to the food: The Tuna Tower was great with delicious salmon and crab as well. The pan seared scallops were the best,...

Everything was wonderful here. Andrew our server was so helpful and elegant. He made our experience top-notch. The seafood was fabulously fresh, and the ceviche the best I've ever had. From the moment they greeted us until the next day when they so graciously called us to make sure we had a great experience, Trulucks was the perfect place to... More

We wanted to celebrate our 19th anniversary someplace special, and as I don't eat red meat, it had to serve seafood as well as steak. Known for it's crab (they actually have a crab farm in Florida), we had to order crab - we started with the crab cake ( bread-free) and the crab cocktail. I ordered the stone crab... More

I'm just speechless. This was the best seafood restaurant I have ever visited. Especially the Salmon-Guacamole-Tower was absolutely outstanding.

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.
