    This place is fantastic. Food is excellent as is the service. Just make sure you get Bryan as your waiter. Best we have ever had. We eat there every time we are in Houston.

    The food was good but took a while to come out. We ordered the salmon and seared tuna. Both were good. The broccoli was too spicy and barely cooked. The Mac and cheese was not good at all. We didn’t eat it. My husband liked the spinach. Our favorite was the bread rolls and the baked Alaska. Our waiter was excellent and recommended great wine.

    Waiter was nice but he needs training on how to handle customers who receive cold bread and burnt meatballs. This is not typical of Trulucks to receive less than perfect food. The manager did correct it. And we enjoyed our meal.

    My Husband is a pescatarian and also a well known Chef. We visited for his birthday & we both enjoyed all four courses! He enjoyed the Sea Bass and I enjoyed the scallops and the complimentary birthday cake was delicious! Our waiter Waylon was amazing and attentive constantly checking on us ! We will definitely be coming back next time in Houston!

    I ordered the Mediterranean salad that comes with calamari, shrimp, and crab. It was good but for a lunch portion that cost $32, it should have been great. Also, no bread was served to our table - unless we ordered the appetizer bread for a fee? Seems that bread should just come with the food without extra charge especially at these prices.

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and it was fantastic. This restaurant was really next level. The food was absolutely amazing as was the service. Our waitress Norma Jean has worked there for 17 years and was wonderful. The restaurant is beautiful, they had a guy on the piano which was very nice, and made us feel very special and appreciated. We love to eat out and really enjoy fine dining but it’s not easy to find. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so impressed with a restaurant. I would recommend this place to anyone for any occasion. Thank you Truluck’s for an outstanding night!

    Dining at Trulucks Houston for 1st time, we had a waitress of Latino decent. I do not remember her name as she did not give us her name. My daughter told her it was my birthday and she never acknowledged it or said Happy Birthday. She was very short with us and seemed to be annoyed. We asked the manager for another server and we had the delightful waiter, Bryan. The rest of the evening went great. Even had Baked Alaska for desert, a true delight.

    One of favorite restaurants - my wife is a huge fan of seafood and this is one of the top places in town. A couple of things that are truly spectacular: the lobster bisque - it comes with a nice portion of lobster meat that the bisque is poured over, worth it but rich and filling; the Crabcake - especially nice as the appetizer with just the crabcake seasoned and cooked to perfection; the trout almondine - sister in law got it and it was a favorite main entree. Great food and a great place to eat - we were celebrating my wife's birthday and is was a lovely occasion! Thank you Truluck's.

    Good Food on the expensive side. Ambience is decent although seating was a bit cramped and the sound level was high so it was tough to have a good conversation.
