“Spectacular food!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Loved the chocolate cake. And our waitress was a gem - she attended to us as if we were the only persons she was serving (and I promise you we weren't) but there wasnt a moment we were left wanting for anything. Now, Trulucks was recommended and I ahve to tell you it was fabulous. The seafood (pan-seared scallops) was divine. My son and wife had steak and grouper and all three of us were talking about the food and the service three days after!! But let me get back to the chocolate cake - faultless (if you like chocolate cake). it was a great recommendation and if you're in Miami do have a meal at Trulucks. Don't mind the price the food and service will make up for it.

“Very good food with exceptional service”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I took my wife to dinner last night for her birthday at this restaurant. Our choice was on a recommendation from a friend who eats at these high end restaurants every week. We usually go out to eat about once every couple of months because my wife is an excellent cook and we enjoy our meals at home. When we travel we usually go to the best steakhouse in the area. This was by far one of the best meals we have had.
Service was second to none. Our waiter Brandon was very friendly, and efficient, all of our food came out timely and at the proper temperature. The servings were generous and had very good flavor.
The manager came by at least 3 or 4 times to see if everything was going well. Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it.
If you want to entertain friends or clients it is perfect. For dinner with your spouse great.
P.S. The live music was soft and smooth

“Food very good ambiance so so”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Food was good, pricey but not outrageous , as for ambiance it was a typical high end steak and fish chain restaurant along the same theme as a Morton,s or Ruth Chris, not a criticism but it's just ho hum with no local influence , you could have been in NYC, Boston or Chicago, bottom line ok and a safe bet more suited to a business dinner or lunch. . Try it but then I would suggest River Oyster and Seafood bar , 5 minutes away more local atmosphere, good food and less expensive and then compare for couples more memorable.

“Just excellent would say better than Joes”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We are crab lovers and go to specialized restaurants. trulucks has superb quality in the crab, you might want to consider the all you can eat monday if you really love it. Otherwise the seafood combo is excellent and greatly priced. My husband prefers fish and he always for for the almond trout. This place is great on service too. We loved the wedge and the desserts. I think Trulucks ihas become a better restaurant than Joes and of course than Montys. Yes there is one issue, it is expensive, but worth it.

The restaurant is located in a prime location in brickell. The food was great. The restaurant is expensive, but is worth it. The service was impeccable and the vine lists is complete.
