“Good but not great”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Went with a fairly large group son only a limited menu. Overall a good experience, a good steak a choice of lobster but didn't quite understand the abundance of mashed potato. Would probably go back.

“Lucky enough to enjoy Stone Crab”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We were wondering why the traffic in Brickell only to realise everyone was heading to truluck's for all you can eat Stone crab... one was enough for, serving portions are excellent, service is fantastic and food is well prepared. Even with the wait for a table we were seated at the bar after a short wait and to a table about 20 minutes later. The atmosphere is pumping... if in the Brickell area be sure to stop by...

“Friendly and reliable”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Being on Brickell Ave provides a well heeled business client base so the prices are not cheap. On the other hand the setting is upmarket and the food, and being a fish eater I really refer to the fish, is fresh and top quality. At my last two visits Dungeness Crab was on the menu - one of my all time favourites and hard to find on the east coast - but not available on my second visit. I get slightly bugged by missing menu items - but then I would rather they not have it than try and pass off something less than excellent, which speaks well of their commitment to quality. I have eaten here several times as its close to the offices I visit when in Miami and have never had a bad experience. Friendly and helpful staff - but not overly familiar. I will keep going back.

“hidden gem in downtown Miami”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Live (great) music every night, charming decor, amazing bar scene, and fresh food that is SO GOOD. I try to dine at Truluck's every time I'm in Miami; one of my top 3 Miami restaurants. Seafood is the specialty of the house but the steaks are amazing too. Save room for desert which comes to the table by cart. The carrot-cake is to DIE for. Excellent wine list and lots of wines by the glass. highly recommend trying!!!

“A bad lunch at Trulucks. "Shocking"”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Never thought I would say this, lunch today was the worst food I ever had here. Never ever order sea base fish tacos should be off the menu, has no taste all grease, very little fish taco taste like paper.. The manager should either change the recipe or take it off the menu
