This is what you can expect from dining at Truluck's in the Arboretum. The service is deplorable. The drinks are watered down. The crab cakes and calamari are so salty you think the chef is cooking them in actual ocean water. The steak is inedible and the lobster so overcooked it had to be sent back to the kitchen. If you like to drop a lot of money on really bad food and service, this may be the place for you!

Excellent food and great wine list. Red fish Pontchartrain and Halibut were a treat. Sides are extra but they were happy to let us share.

I recommend. Good atmosphere and great food. You can make reservations or not. Tends to get crowded during holidays so plan ahead.

We ordered crab and shrimp salad which was devoid of flavor. We had what was supposed to be Idaho trout and which, again, lacked flavor. we also had seared scallops which were almost cold inside. lastly we had chocolate bread pudding that was unexceptional, but reasonably good. The issue here is that the prices are high and for what you are paying you expect excellent food. Instead we got OK food. The service was fabulous.
