    The stone crab claws were below average in what we have experienced before at Truluck’s. Are they out of season. Our server, Elaine, was terrific!

    Epic Catastrophe. This restaurant should be listed on the FEMA website. There was COVID-19, the Kentucky flooding, California wildfires and the dining experience at Trulucks. If you want to see what it’s like to spend $400 to get punished come here, the only thing they are missing is a basement with whips and chains. Other than that, this is the one-stop hell hole for the immersive masochistic experience. Literally the worst run wannabe high-end restaurant experience you can find anywhere. Maybe you dig up some more painful culinary punishment in Honduran rain forest or maybe some food truck in the Sudan might have this place beat, but the sheer magnitude and scope of the lunacy here is nothing short of epic. Suffice it to say you can have your car destroyed, get mediocre food for $400, get literally assaulted (not exaggerating), get a dose of good ol fashioned racism and have a feckless manager shirk any sense of accountability. I went to trulucks and I feel like I dropped a bar a soap in a prison shower. HORRIBLE. OpenTable doesn’t give enough room to give the detailed accounting of my misery. I’ll be sure to add details on yelp and Google.

    Food was good - Service was slow and plus they did not had the drinks we ask for. You will think that Trulucks will have all kind of wine, cocktails and beer selection. They did not have Bombay Sapphire Gin - it’s part of a Gin Martini that also includes dry Vermouth, onions, & olives.

    My Best Friend celebration for her Birthday. There were 4 of us long life friends. Your server Rick Stanley was well informed about Our selections on and off menus. Our food was excellent in taste and presentation. His patience was commendable for all of our friendship conversations. We loved the champagne special. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

    We went for my husbands birthday dinner, just the two of us. It was delicious! Of course it is a bit pricey but you do get a large amount of food. It isn’t like the normal high priced restaurant meal size. We also received an amazing baked Alaska that was so good!! I recommend for a special occasion.

    Excellent food as usual: highlights-both the Texas blackened redfish w crab and the Chilean crab legs in butter were excellent. The carrot cake is still the best in the city. Parmesan yeast rolls were a little stale, but a great overall meal.

    Hector was our server and took great care of us. The ambiance was really nice including live music that was moderate volume and very enjoyable. The food was excellent although the premium king crab was a little dry which did come as a disappointment given the price. The redfish, salmon and strip steak were all very good. Definitely will be back.

    Fantastic dinner at Truluck’s on Westheimer last night. The poblano soup was as good as EVER! It was a special. I hope they put it back on the menu as a regular option. The crab claws were super fresh and delicious, as was the crab fried rice and spinach soufflé. Our waiter, Derick, was also super attentive, polite and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to visit again soon!

    The server and food were fantastic. When I made the reservation I indicated we were dining to celebrate my parent's wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival everyone greeted us congratulating my parents. The table had a red heart too. Only con was the noise level was pretty high due to some large party tables.

    A fantastic meal! The shrimp cocktail (5/5), the crab cake (5/5), the oysters (6/5), the stone crab (6/5), the crab fried rice (5/5), and the calamari (4.2/5) were all great. The weakest point was the ribeye--for the price, I didn't find it competitive (2.8/5)
