By far the best meal we had on our vacation. The decor, staff, and food are awesome. Will go back when we vacation in the area again. Seafood is EXCELLENT!

As English travellers we are spoilt by the food and service in America, this restaurant packages quality home made food with friendly and professional service. We choose this restaurant because our concierge at the W hotel said this is the best for fish in Fort Lauderdale.

First impressions of Truluck's is great, a beautifully decorated restaurant with a cocktail bar ready for your arrival. Every night a pianist plays so the atmosphere is smooth, romantic and relaxing, you never get a second chance to make that first impression and this restaurant didn't disappoint.

Arrival drinks were a blue moon beer for me and a Bellini for my wife, both well served.

We were seated in a really nice cubicle table, which was ideal and very romantic. Our server Ray Cruz came over and introduced himself, a really nice young man with excellent knowledge, we asked to a menu description and he went through it perfectly - choices!! Eventually we decided to share a shrimp platter starter and share two main courses of a large crab cake with mash and broccoli and a sea bass dish with crab fried rice, we also choose a Caesar salad.

After we ordered the restaurant manager came over to introduce himself and check we were ok, his name was Eric, we thought this was a nice touch.

The starter arrived and wow it was excellent, four large butterfly prawns with a spicy sauce on a sweet delicate sauce base, the mixture of flavours was perfect and we would highly recommend this dish.

The main course arrived and again both dishes were first class, we didn't eat the broccoli or mash but the rest was scrumptious, the crab cake was amazing, full of fresh white crab. The sea bass was good with the crab fried rice being the perfect partner, just lovely.

After the main course another really nice waiter Ryan came over to present the tray of six desserts, wow - they were massive and involved chocolate cake, carrot cake, key lime pie, fresh berries etc. we thanked Ryan for the perfect presentation but were full up just by looking at them. A good suggestion for this restaurant would be a sweet sampler plate, where a guest has a haring plate of a small portion of four desserts?

Thank you to the lovely reception lady, to Ray, Eric and Ryan for a really wonderful night, we will return on our next visit and will recommend you to friends and family who visit.

We came for dinner while visiting Ft Lauderdale. It is an elegant restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. We chose the outdoor area since it was beautiful night. It was quite charming.

Upon entering the restaurant, there is an obvious feel of "expensive". This proved to be correct. With that said, the food was great and the service excellent.

Even though this restaurant is located just on the outskirts of a shopping mall, don't be fooled. It's upscale and nice, but smart casual is a Florida dress code here. Make sure to make reservations otherwise the wait could be over an hour. Stone Crabs are in season & Truluck's has a Monday night all you can eat. And it's priced according to the size claw you order. Service is impeccable, at least for us and everyone around us. It's a bit loud, but that's because they had live music in the bar area. Extensive wine list to make the meal even better. Definitely on my list of "go back to".
