I have been to Miami a few times but this was my first time to Truluck's. We were in Miami to celebrate my birthday. My husband knew that I love seafood so he picked this restaurant. They asked him were we celebrating anything and he told them my birthday. When got there the table was decorated and there was a... More

Had booked as our first night in Miami on thanksgiving and the food was absolutely delicious and the portions very generous. The atmosphere was lovely with live music & good service. The menu was extensive & if you like seafood this is a real treat. Best crab cake I've ever had just full of meat and the surf and turf... More

Ambience is nice, although the smell of dirty carpet starts to appear obvious after a few minutes. Good, friendly service, although I could feel the tension between the staff. Crab legs were great. Lobster Bisque a bit heavy and spicy, but good. Clams Casino okay, but salty. Surf and Turf was okay. The lobster was overly salty, although we ordered... More

The interior is what I would describe as swanky. It is dark and romantic. We were seated at a booth which was perfect so we could sit close and enjoy our incredible seafood meal. There was also a band which was really good - we thought at first it was the radio. We enjoyed Stone crab claws and a huge... More

Had a vendor dinner. I went here with the same person last time he was in town. He likes this restaurant so we went back. I have been here several times as well and they recognized me. That is always good. We started with stone crabs and lobster bisque and both were great. We both had the sea bass. Mine... More

The food was amazing, everything was fresh and tasty and the ambiance was relaxing but with a little noise. My recommendation are the Alaskan crab legs, it is to die for.

Food and service was excellent! The seafood platter appetizer was w. The tomato salad was just okay. Too much buttermilk dressing. Snapper as a main was huge yet excellent. The filet was perfectly cooked. Cheesecake was delicious. Excellent food, wine and service, but not inexpensive.

The restaurant has a lovely ambience with low lighting, very dramatic flower arrangements and superb live music on Thursdays. We shared a crab cake that made our eyes roll with delight accompanied by one of the best Caesar salads ever and the main event was Turf and Surf and Dynamite Filet which was topped with shrimp and crab in a...
