My wife made a dinner reservation on OpenTable for the Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend. It was not too crowded, but it being our first visit on a Sunday night, we were not sure if it was typical for a Sunday, or if it just that weekend. For our tax bracket, Truluck’s is not a restaurant that we would frequent on a normal basis. The food was very good, but considering the price, it better be. I would say that the service from our waiter was very good, with one exception, when the waiter forgot to bring my wife ice for her water glass.

Oh my gosh! They welcomed us and worked perfectly as a team. The culture of a restaurant adds flavor to the food.
It doesn't matter how good the food is, if the wait staff don't get along with each other or if they're fighting with the kitchen, I won't come back. Here, they worked as a team. Our waiter, Enrique, was personable and made wonderful recommendations. We were taken care of!
The escargot was crazy good. Of course, drowning it in butter just made the need for the fresh bread all the more evident.
The spring mix salad was fresh and when presented, it looked like it hadn't been dressed. In fact, it was *perfectly* dressed.
Our waiter made recommendations for our dinner and we ended up getting a GREAT bottle of wine and sharing a pound and a half of king crab legs. Cooked perfectly and cracked in the kitchen, you will still end up using your hands (getting a little messy) to get all the goodness out. These are sweet and tender.
Our waiter noted that the stone crabs were no longer available from Florida and, while the west coast stone crabs are very good, based on what we had expressed as our desire for a good meal, he steered us toward the King Crab legs.
We're so glad he did!
We had steamed spinach and garlic along with asparagus for sides.
Unfortunately, we were so full, we couldn't do desserts. But WOW, did their dessert presentation tray look amazing!
I make it a habit not to visit chain restaurants when traveling. Truluck's has other locations, but this is hardly a chain. And, they keep it so personal, well... we'll be back when we're back in town!
Really great food!!!
Really great service!
(and really convenient to the local hotels)

Probably the best in Houston. Awesome crab-claws, superb seafood and steaks appear great too. Staff are entertaining and good fun in real non-starchy way. Not to be missed when you’re in Houston.

A wide variety of fresh seafood dishes. Waitress Lorena was very attentive and polite, offered good suggestions and knew the dishes, a great plus.
Tried their fresh crab claw served on a bed of crushed ice, their lobster bisque and Hawaiian ahi tuna. All perfectly cooked and served by the chef.
A great place in Houston, well worth a visit.

Business lunch. Had the business lunch combo with lobster bisque and the Ultimate Steakhouse Filet. Cooked excellently. Bisque had a spice to it and was a little different but wonderful. Service was on-point but not intrusive and we never felt rushed -- but never wanted for anything. 5* all the way around and would eat here all the time if I could.
