    The entire meal was wonderful. We had the stone crab, lobster and blackened redfish. For desert we had the chocolate bag. It was good but probably will not have it again. The nuts were very hard in the desert. Only thing I didn't like was all the up selling. It was a little over the top.

    Everything about this place is awesome but the sea bass was out of this world! It easily was the best I have had in years -- if ever! The chocolate cake, for dessert, was more than three of us could eat even though we tried our best because it was so good. I would return to Trulucks next time I get to Dallas!

    I took my wife to Truluck's for her birthday and it was simply fabulous! They held are very spacious table due to a traffic jam and wished her a Happy Birthday as soon as we came in. The service was fantastic, the ambience incredible and the food the best in Dallas...every course was amazing! They topped it off with a complementary chocolate birthday cake...written in chocolate on the plate "Happy Birthday"! But we had to also order the Carrot Cake for it is the best CC in the land. The best and finest restaurant in Dallas. I am looking forward to their new restaurant, same location, coming in 2015! Dr. Hank

    We are in this area of Dallas every year for business and always visit Trulucks. Great food and service. One point, this is the first time we have sat to the left as you enter. I will request the right side in the future as it was quite noisy, the only downside of an otherwise lovely dinner.

    Been to Truluck's in Houston and Austin. The Dallas store did not disappoint. The food and service were exceptional. Free valet parking which is NEEDED. Made our reservation just a couple of hours before on a Sunday night on Open Table. Reservations are a must. The noise level was a bit high but it was from happy diners and not overbearing piped in music. The service and food were exceptional.

    We love going here any time of the year but going when they have their all-you-can-eat stone crab claw special is really SPECIAL!! Also, it is nice to be remembered: many of the wait staff, including wonderful Mary who waited on us during this visit, have been there for some time AND they remember you when you come back in. We are really looking forward to the opening of their new facility right behind the current one.

    My husband and I love Trulucks. We always go for the stone crab claws and the hothouse tomato salad or the wedge salad. Both are excellent. Then we share the fried shrimp platter which has a light batter compared to most. Always very fresh tasting!! Oh! And a great wine list!

    Ordered a filet medium well, and it came very well done, though they offered to remake it and put it on them. However, when it came time to pay, they accidentally used my card on a separate bill, then had to cancel the charge and recharge my bill. Annoying since its a bank card and the payment is pending and will fall off in 3-5 days. Food can be good though.

The service is impeccable and prompt. Wine list is very good. The food is priced reasonably for the quality and service. We love the area. We almost always choose Truluck's for special occasions.

    My wife and I love seafood. This place is a gourmet spot but they give you good portions. You can see the menu online to understand what the prices will be because a good dinner won't be under $100 for a couple. But trust me the food is worth it. I had the redfish and my wife had the seabass. We also got crab claws and the crab mac n cheese. All of the food was phenomenal. My only complaint was that is took a while to get our drinks. Our waiter said a large party was there and had the bar tied up so we'll have to go back to see if that's really the case. But hey when that's the only complaint, that's a good thing!

    We were seated on the patio which was a bit too noisy from the traffic but pleasant. Although they state they have a dress code, the man next to us was dressed in a white undershirt and shorts?? Food was above average. We ordered one appetizer but were disappointed. I personally ordered the crevice and the party platter for my main course and both were wonderful. My husband had a Excellent steak. Our guest ordered the Halibut which was dry due to being served atop the mashed potatoes. Such a shame as it was a generous serving. Enjoyed after dinner drinks and dessert. Final bill was approx. $125.00 per person.
