    We always choose Truluck’s for our anniversary’s and birthday’s and anytime we’re in the mood to celebrate. This year was extra special; Truluck’s reverted back to the original recipe for their “crab-fried-rice”! It was amazing and our waiter Jason was more than attentive. The food is always on point and with the original crab fried rice; we will be back long before another birthday or anniversary.

    Perfect dining experience. The setting is elegant and quiet. We felt like we were almost alone. Service is excellent. And the food.... The food is amazing. We had the crab napoleon, some oysters, salmon, lobster thermidor and desert. A very fine dining experience. It is expensive - but the money shows up on the plate and in the service. Well worth it.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary as we’ve done in the past. Sadly, while the restaurant is beautifully appointed, service was excellent, our food was not up to what we’d experienced in the past. Stone crab claws were wonderful but lobster bisque was meh and my husbands large filet mignon was tough and lacking flavor. It pains me to write this review however had to be honest.

    My Experience was amazing! Everything was organized, clean, and professional. The hostess was very polite and full of great welcoming energy. Our waitress Ivy was amazing! She was on top of her game. Ready for the questions and quick with the answers. She kept the small talk small and quick, but engaged with both guest. Now Joe the manager, outstanding work, greeted us, and was fast with the follow ups. Even the male busser was nice! The menu was also priced affordable in my opinion, and experience with fine dining. Tremendous first time impression, and experience! Keep up the great work and we shall see y’all soon again!

    My sweetheart and I celebrated there with a fantastic dinner. We started with oysters, they were from Prince Edward Island. Then we had Chilean sea bass. You can’t ask for a better fish! It was cooked perfectly. We shared a bottle of wine and topped it off with crème brûlée. Neither one of us can remember a better meal. We had a table looking at the water and watched people walking and on their hulls rowing. A perfect evening!

    Let me start by saying we chose this restaurant for an early Valentines dinner because we had been here twice before and had spectacular food and service. Unfortunately that was not the case last evening. We were seated and got water and looked over wine list. Had to wait a long time for server to come back to order. Then it took a while for her to bring the wine. We ordered the stone crab for appetizer and got it fairly quickly. At that point we placed our entree order. Trout amondine for me and Norwegian salmon for my husband and that’s when the real wait came. Over half an hour we waited while our server came over once to refill our wine glass and left. Finally we caught the attention of the server in training with our server and asked where our food was. Then it came out and bot fish items were over cooked. We got the attention of another server to please get our server to our table. I kept my meal as I was starving and we sent my husband’s salmon back. The general manager brought the new salmon out and apologized and said they were busy cause 8 was Valentines week! There were very few people in the restaurant and all the other tables seemed to be getting served. He then said he would not charge us for our dinner and wine. He left and when my husband started eating his salmon part of it was raw! That was it. We got up and left. Totally shocked at the evening. Worst experience at a restaurant in many years.

    The ambience and service was great, and the noise level was perfect,but for the price of the food, I was disappointed in the taste of the chilean sea bass with miso—a couple of bites were a bit fishy. My husband had the Redfish Pontchatrain, which was better than the sea bass, but not the best he has had either. We have both had it it at a medium priced restaurant, where it was better. The lobster bisque and caesar salad were both delicious. My favorite dessert is key lime pie, and we were both extremely disappointed with it here. The crust was thick and tasted hard and not much flavor, it had a ton of whipped cream, and not as much filling as normal. The filling was not as tart as a really good one should be. We only go to Trulucks once or twice a year, and were a little disappointed this time It was a Monday night, two days before Valentine’s Day, so not sure why things weren’t like we’ve had in the past.

    Food was great! Seasoned and lots of flavor! Had the lobster, filet, wedge salad and Parmesan cheese bread, don’t miss this, and for desert creme’ brûlée. Service started slow. We were not acknowledged at all for about 15 minutes or so. It took her another 15 minutes to get our drinks. After all of that, the service started to pick up and was much better.

    We celebrated our anniversary there. It was a perfect evening. The food and wine were amazing as always and the service was impeccable. Being from Louisiana I’ve had many good crab cakes, but these were probably the best I’ve had. We vowed not to wait another year and a half before returning.

    Great service, food, and ambiance were great. Noise level was great for conversation, which is becoming a rarity

    Truluck's is a great place to dine for special occasions. The staff was great and very accommodating. The food was of excellent quality, and the wine list had wines and prices to fit anyone's budget. Truluck's made our celebration very special.
