“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I asked for seafood and was superb my fellow partners asked for meat and also was superb. If you go to Miami give it a try you will not regret it. I went in December and repeated last week.

“So disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We were staying in Miami overnight and the Four Seasons concierge recommended Trulucks for dinner. Although they had the reservation they did not have a table ready so we sat at the very crowded bar for a time. Then they offered us the worst table in the room, outside the kitchen with a constant stream of servers going back and fore. We declined it and they found us another, after a further wait. There was then a delay of over an hour after ordering before our food arrived. The server apologized so many times it became irritating. But worst of all, when our food arrived (we both ate fish) it was very ordinary indeed, not worth either the wait or the price. We paid and left.

So disappointing, especially as the Trulucks 50 miles away in Boca Raton is one of our favorite restaurants.

“Delightful Dinner! And the Stone Crabs are a MUST...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

What an absolutely delightful dinner. We tried Truluck's on a recommendation from our hotel hoping to avoid the crowds at Joe's. From the service (which was tremendous), to the desserts, wow - we were not disappointed. We started with Happy Hour and half price appetizers. The calamari and the mussels were superb. Next up? Dinner with colossal stone crabs and a tomahawk rib-eye split between two of us. Not a single item that arrived at our table was disappointing.

The ambiance is gorgeous but the food - it's all about the food. And the wine. How many places will you find Justin Isosceles on tap? If you're looking for a vibrant restaurant with exceptional food, look no further.

“Seriously Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

New Year's Eve was phenomenal! The prefix menu was awesome and my wife and I think it was one of the top 5 dining experiences that we have ever had. We are also a mature couple that has traveled the World so have a pretty good list!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Three out of the four items ordered were the best I had ever had... When the folks working there learned it was my and my wife's 25th wedding anniversary the whole staff went out of their way to accomodate us... Truly an unforgettable evening...
