    This was a first time visit, and will be the last visit. The location is nice, but the room very loud. It was hard to have a conversation at a small 4 top table. The service was okay - our water glasses were NEVER refilled or even checked. The food was so-so. There again, there are better quality locations for the style of food. Overall, the quality of food and experience was not truly positive. The only thing that was great was the company that I was with!

    We had reservations for 2 for a Friday night. We got there a little early and while we were waiting to be seated we noticed the hostess and what i assume was the manager trying to make a 2 seat table fit next to the doors to patio and backed up against another table. We could see they were having trouble deciding to use the table because it was blocking the door. My wife mentioned i hoped they don't try and put us there....sure enough they did! We refused to sit there as we were literally blocking one of the doors to the patio! It was a typical restaurant trying to squeeze in another table. The hostess would not find us another table because they were all booked. So we left without eating! We've eaten there many times. Love the food!

    We stumbled upon this restaurant and the food was terrific. I had a salad that could have fed me for a week. I am not much into meat, but the rest of our party had steak or burgers and it was all very good. It was a fun place. We'll be back.

    We had a party of six. Food was fantastic, but the noise level was too high. The music was loud, which means everyone has to speak louder to compensate. Net - you couldn't speak to guests at the end of the table without feeling as if you were yelling. I love TruFire, but turn down the music. We don't go there to hear loud 80s music. We go for the food, wine and conversation.

    The food was great as always. We were there on a Monday night. Not that busy but our service was horrible. Waited over 10 minutes after being seated for waitress to take our drink order. Then had another long wait for our drinks.....water, tea and 1 drink from the bar. Appetizer and salad took forever as well. Our waitress was not overly friendly. In the past, wait staff was awesome but tonight was not impressive.

    We tried a few dishes and they were all just Ok. The crab dip, or I should say the "cheese dip", was overcooked had hardly any crab meat in it. The grilled Artichoke and cheese board were both just average. The flour-less chocolate cake was good. We sat outside which was nice. The service was good. Go there just for the drinks and the atmosphere.

    1st time diner at TruFire. I was really impressed with the food and the service was spectacular, but there is something I would change about this place. Please, remove some tables! I'm guessing the owner is trying to maximize profit, by filling up every possible space with a table, but it really diminishes the experience. We were sat in a small area, next to a large party, and (even with everyone sitting in their chairs) our table was constantly bumped into and jostled around - to the point where my water spilled several times; not completely, mind you, but enough to require extra napkins. Even maneuvering around the restaurant was uncomfortable, as I felt like I was touching people as I walked by them.

    Easter Sunday brunch. We booked for 12:45 but arrived a few minutes early and walked right in! Our waiter was awesome! Friendly and talkative, but not in an offputting way. My 2 picky boys ordered a burger and a TruFire pancake. They were excellent! My husband ordered the breakfast tacos and loved the "kick" while I had the Bourbon French Toast with salted caramel cream cheese which was amazing! It's rare that all 4 of us LOVE everything we ordered, so it was such a nice experience to have everyone happy and full at the end of our meal. My husband and I plan to return for a date night. The patio / fireplace looks inviting and there are MANY things on the menu and cocktail list that we can't wait to try.

    Sat us next to a broken heat post things and spare propane tanks. So that was nice. Then some table let their kids run wild around the place. They went through the patio door to the front of the restaurant no less that 20 times. They would leave the door open each time. It was really annoying.

    Tru Fire has the best gluten free menu I have come across! Every dish on their menu can be made gluten free except the pizzas. The ones I have tried so far are delicious. And they even make a gluten free chocolate cake that is moist and delicious. If you are gluten free, it is a rare find.

    It was our date night choice. Great service, our waiter Michael was awesome. He was ready to give some GREAT recommendations that probably made our experience even better. He also was always around at just the right time. The food was delcious. We had the Paddle board appetizer - YUM! The Spicy Garlic Noodles and Latin Fire pizza were amazing. Dessert was the Banana Split - which was the perfect way to end the meal. I tried their Blackberry mixed drink (name escapes me) but it was delcious. It was noisy, but we didn't mind. I could still hear my husband for conversation - it had a great crowd on Saturday night. We made a reservation so we walked in and our table was already ready. Overall very happy with our evening.

    This was the first restaurant in the OpenTable network that truly disappointed us. It was crowded with tables too close together, extremely noisy, and very dark. The noise level rating above assumes that loud and energetic are the same. Definitely not. I marked "do not recall" so I could describe the noise here in the comments section. Food was only fair. Red wine was served at appropriate temperature -- that was the only thing done right. We were seated at a table for two behind and very close to a large family group with small children. We finished dinner quickly and went next door to a patisserie with lovely desserts and beautiful patio.

    I went with a friend of mine to catch up and enjoy a good dinner. The good was decent, but nothing I'd say I HAVE to go back for. The crab dip was very cheese heavy, easy way to bulk it up without having to use much crab meat. Our dinner entrees were good, I had the napa chicken, again too much cheese in the orzo. The drinks were fantastic, however light.... All and all, it was ok but not one we are racing back to try again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/6/2014
    The food was good here. The noise level was outrageous. I would rank it one of the loudest restaurant experiences I've ever had. At least 85-90 decibels the entire evening. That's loud enough to cause permanent hearing damage. No acoustic tiles and no noise-buffering coverings on the hard tile floor. I've been to the Southlake location, a couple of years ago and all I remember was the noise. Same here. I guess they haven't fixed that part of the equation.

    First time at TruFire...won't be the last! Excellent food and service. The hummus was the best we've ever had. Wife had a spinach salad that was really good. I had the diablo pizza and it was incredible. We were expecting a slightly larger menu, but they did have what we wanted. Can't wait to go back.

    One of my favorite restaurants...food is so consistently awesome and fresh. Well trained friendly service people and an owner that is always active and present to ensure a great experience. The size of the restaurant is perfect as well, not so big that things get out of control with long service times, but not too small that you can't in, and seated in a reasonable timeframe. Love the blackberry blast, but for $10, it's a lil pricey.

    I've been to the Plano location twice. Once when they were recommended by D magazine not long after they opened, then again last week. Both times I was underwhelmed compared to all the good reviews. I will admit I didnt have the hummus or the pizza, which are their specialities. The menu is limited if you don't want pizza or sandwiches. The food is average. The service was very attentive. Lots of kids were there. Seems like a good place for lunch with friends or dinner with your family.
