    We didn't let the restaraunt know that we celebrating an anniversary. Upon be seated, our hostess Sandi asked if we were here for a special occasion. We told her, "our 14 wedding anniversary". She came back to our table and decorated for our special evening. The food was very tasteful, fresh and a good temperature to eat. After dinner, my wife and in were presented with an anniversary dessert plate with Happy Anniversary written on the chilled plate in chocolate. We plan on returning in October to celebrate my father in law's birthday.

    I used to love Trulucks at lunchtime (actually had our rehearsal dinner there years ago so it should be a memorable spot for me.) Unfortunately, Trulucks is going on my not-so-good list. The Power lunch used to have great choices at a fair price. It's now 29 and doesn't even have good options (maybe good if you like salmon.) In fact, we were diappointed all around with the lunch menu. The fish special was 42 dollars. That's insane for a lunch special. I'm not a big salad person but I got the Seafood Cobb salad. It actually was quite good but I really wish they had more lunch options at reasonable prices for things like a simple grill fish and side. Everything seemed priced about 4-5 dollars too high.

    The special river salmon was extremely undercooked and rubbery. A member of my group also had bad luck with the taste of her lobster roll. We have been there often and were very surprised at the poor taste of several dishes.

    I am not one to spend a ton of money on restaurant food. I do love seafood and steaks and will occasionally spend extra for a special occasion. The prices at Truluck's seemed excessive to me even for a special occasion. The food was good but nothing that over the top to warrant such high prices.

    First time to Truluck's and it was great. Upon arrival the Valet was backed up which was an annoyance taking 5-10 minutes before getting to my car which was only #2 in line. After that, everything went smoothly. Went for Restaurant Week with all three courses delicious. The dessert cupcakes were enough for three desserts. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Uptown area.

  • Below expectations
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/14/2014
    Based on our excellent experiences at the now-closed Addison location, we expected much better food. It was ok but well below what used to be their standard. The so-so fish tacos were plated leaning against the mashed potatoes which turned the tacos to mush one one side. The blackened redfish was acceptable. The high note was the side order of spinach which was excellent. Our server was very helpful and did a fine job overall.

    We tried Truluck's for restaurant week and were not disappointed. I can see why this is such a Dallas staple. Each course was better than the last (crab claws, Sonoma Greens Salad, Cioppino, Trout & cup cakes). The sauce with the Trout was mouthwatering. I will request Mary as our server any time we go back in the future. We had the BEST service. She was so friendly, attentive and her recommendations were spot on.

    Although most of our food was tasty and fresh, the crab was very expensive and the shell was shattered by a hammer, and too difficult to pick all the little fragments out. Service was lacking, never asked if we wanted salad or anything, just came up and said have you made a decision. We asked about Restaurant Week, from them on treated like cheap patrons looking for a free meal. Dined in some of the best restaurants in major cities, this is not one of them. Don't waste your time with this one, if you must, go to Southlake. Left very disappointed, the management was nothing but defensive. Four diners, spent almost $300, that's not chump change for dinner.

    The food for the most part was very fresh tasting and full of flavor. This is the first place I have ever had macNcheese come close to the greatness of my own. It is hard to please my particular pallet however I was extremely impressed with their smoked Salmon flat bread, key lime pie was fresh, sautéed spinach and of course back to the Mac which I will return for. Their customer service was the best I've had in a long while and was well received.

    The food was good but when you spend $500 on dinner for 4, you expect to get professional service. Incnsistant service, I ordered a shellfish appetizer i never got a towel to clean my hands at the end of my course. On the other hand, one of my guests ordered a shellfish main course, he got the towel, but never got a dish to put his shells in nor did he get a shellfish fork. Ordered a second bottle of wine (same as the first) the waiter opens the bottle and proceeds to pour over the exiting wine glasses without giving me the chance to taste the bottle to make sure it is not corked. Constantly overpouring the wine -- glasses were more than half full. Clueless.

    Crab cake was actually lump crab, and the mustard sauce was good albeit a bit too spicy. Broiled and pan seared salmon were both cooked to diner specifications. Miso glazed Sea Bass was quite good and moist. Our captain was efficient and good, but so hyper, he was distracting. Can't wait to see the new facility.

    After living beachside for many years, we missed fresh seafood when we returned to DFW. After many hits and misses, we found Truluck's. Every meal that we have had here has been outstanding. We love the sea bass, ahi tuna, oysters, and stone crab claws. Wish you would open a restaurant in the Plano, Allen, Frisco area.
