    The service is always excellent at Turlock's. My Miso Mahi Mahi was excellent and even though my wife's steak was overcooked, it was tender. The manager took care of that right away. First class all the way.

    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.

    The last few times we went there, the noise was so bad we could not even hear the person sitting next to us. This time, we requested to sit at the far end of the restaurant where it is the most quiet. It was better, to be sure, but still loud. The food is wonderful, the service impeccable, and the desserts are amazing. The only problem is the noise. It is not the place to go if you want a quiet dinner with friends.

    We chose Truluck's for a first anniversary dinner. We couldn't be more pleased at the WHOLE experience. We were greeted by the hostess that acknowledged our Anniversary, then was proceeded by both the manager and general manager acknowledging it as well. Then the waiter topped it off with his wishes. The food was probably the best we have ever tasted in our lives. The ambience of the place is amazing. We can go on an on with my rave reviews. We will most definitely be attending Trulucks again when we are back in Dallas.
