Great seafood! Excellent service. We had the Ahi tuna and Branzino.. They were both perfectly prepared. The baked Alaska was a delicious way to conclude the meal.

Truluck’s was highly recommended to us, and it did not disappoint! We arrived a half hour early, and were seated pretty fast. Our server, Jessie, was great! He was very helpful, efficient, and kind. The food was fabulous, the ambiance was nice, and the music in the lounge was great! I highly recommend Truluck’s!!!

We had a great experience the first time we went and were excited to take friends. It took a very long time to get service to begin with and our drinks came out very slowly. My medium steak came out well done and they re cooked and came out well once again, but they told me that was their medium. Just very disappointing service and good. You expect more when paying $250 plus for a couple. On a positive note, the carrot cake is delicious.

A new high end stalwart on the Gold Coast. This is an expensive experience- but you get what you pay for. From wine, to food, to service - it is some of the best you will find. The live music from the bar did not over power us, and was so good I left the table to find my way to the piano to leave a tip. We will be back.

The attention and welcome from the entire staff from the moment we walked in. Everyone was so warming, etiquette behavior with a genuine smile. The dinner was superb and our waiter was very kind and took great care of us. The entire evening couldn't have been more perfect for my husband's birthday. We truly enjoyed the experience, atmosphere, food/wine and LIVE music! We will be back! :)

Trulucks is a great establishment, 1st time at Chicago Loop location, typically at Naples, FL restaurant. The food and service was top shelf and Michael the manager could not have been more personal and helpful. Great institution if you are tired of other steak and potato hot spots in Chicago.

Excellent ambiance, service and food. The staff could not have been nicer or more attentive. Wait Staffs presentation of menu and food as served could not have been better. Great Wine List and wine recommendations. Desert....Baked Alaska was the best. Also, the bread served at the start of the meal could have been a meal itself.

With all the great resturants in Chicago, my wife make demanded we go bach to Truluck the next night for the same great service and food. Both nights were outstanding!

The staff goes overboard to make sure you have a good experience. They were all great. Drinks were good and the crab cakes excellent. The filet was a tad overcooked and the $65 new york w/bone was good but not great. Maybe its not my cut. The fish dishes were excellent.

We arrived and sat outside. They need something to deter the bugs from disturbing the pateons. The crab cakes are AMAZING! Highly recommend them as a starter. The crab legs were delicious and well worth the price. The steak could have been a lot more seasoned, but the steak sauce!?!? I wanted to take a bottle home. Sides were tasty... spinach and crab fried rice. Very little crab but the flavors blended very well with a subtle sweetness.

GREAT overall dining experience. The cocktails were exceptional and artistic. The food was superb as was our waitress. However, the "icing on the cake" was the live music in the bar area. All three performers gave a great show; it was the perfect was to capture the entire vibe of the evening.

We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. They had a lovely booth awaiting for us with rose petals scattered on our table. The server was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We started with the delicious tuna tower appetizer and we each had a delectable fish entree. Mine was the Chilean see bass. Our dining experience ended with a beautifully flaming dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. It was a fantastic ending! Thank you Truluck!
