    If you are looking for a restaurant that has "GREAT" service, "OUTSTANDING" steaks and seafood, then look no further than Truluck's. I had seen the restaurant in Southlake but had never been in, then a friend of mine told me about his visit and I had to go. Made a reservation for my wife's birthday and now Im hooked. Everything about Trulucks' is about you from the minute you walk in to the time you leave. The finest service I have ever received, the best surf and turf I have ever had. You can't get it any better than at Truluck's.

    I took a business client out this week and we had a great time at Trulucks. Ashley was our attendee and she did a fabulous job. Just enough service to feel very special, but not to the point where it was overbearing or intrusive. Thank you for the great evening! Kraig

    We have dined at Truluck's before and this visit was probably the best overall dining experience we've ever had here. Our meals were expertly prepared and especially tasty. Having shared a cold seafood platter appetizer followed by salads, we couldn't finish our entrees and still have room for dessert. We were celebrating my wife's birthday (which I had noted when making our reservation) and all of the staff was very attentive to us. Truluck's presented a wonderful birthday dessert, compliments of the house. Our server, Marissa, was great and added a lot of fun to our evening.

    No reason to drone on and on: This is an excellent restaurant; the food is perfect; the desserts are too large; and our server was extraordinary. Prices are a bit "rich", but justified. (There are plenty of ordinary restaurants from which to choose if money IS an object.)

    I've heard a lot about this restaurant, but I have no idea why. The food was terrible (what you would expect from a suburban chain restaurant) and the bill for four of us was close to $500. If I'm going to spend that kind of money, it better be worth it, and this was far from it. If you want a four-star meal, go somewhere else.

    We have been frequenting Trulucks for 3 years now. Any time we are in the Dallas area, it is one of our absolute favorite places to go. The staff are attentive and very personable, the ambiance is wonderful as it envelopes you into believing you're the only ones there (ask for a booth), and the food; the most important reason for going, is always consistently well prepared, presented and gastronomically pleasing. We have never had a bad experience in any of these areas.

    This is can't miss dining at its finest. Each plate, each appetizer, each dessert are masterfully done. If you're ever in the area, reward yourself and your companion by going - and by all means, listen carefully to the chef specials for an extra treat. My spouse, who is not overly fond of seafood, particularly enjoyed the seafood combo cooked in sirracha on top of her filet.

  • Best Visit Ever
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We've been coming to Truluck's here in Southlake ever since they opened. Through the years we've had mostly good experiences with a couple very bad experiences. I must say that this past visit was the best. We were off for college drop-off for our kids the next day and wanted to celebrate the upcoming school year with a nice dinner before they left. Everything was impeccable. Service was outstanding, management came to check on us multiple times, the food was great (both seafood and beef). There are few times when you pay $$$$ for a dinner and walk away saying that was truly worth it, but for this last visit is really was. Nicely done.

    Why fight the traffic driving to Dallas or Ft. Worth? Trulucks is tucked away in beautiful Southlake Town Center. Delicious food, remarkable service. Unhurried dining, attention to detail. I would always return for a special occasion as it is an expensive night but well worth it.

    Truluck's is easily the best available in the mid-cities now that JR's is effectively no more. They can compete with the Dallas offerings. Big plus on the service. Earnest was outstanding. The food offerings were a bit on the weird side to me. The fried oyster topping the tenderloin did not work. The whole shrimp including heads added nothing to the scampi. It actually diminished the appeal of the dish. Still the food tasted great once you got past that. Just a little on the weird side for us.

    The house fresh seafood appetizer didn't seem fresh at all and was visually unappealing. We didn't finish it. The food preparation was poor and so over salted none of us finished our main either. Big disappointment and not even close to the quality we take for granted in downtown Dallas or Ft Worth.

    I made reservations for my coworkers to try Truluck's during Restaurant Week 2014 and they loved it! I've been to the Dallas location and had a fantastic experience there. Our waiter was very attentive and described every dish beautifully. We all opted to order the Prime Sirloin "Rockefeller". Honestly, that was the slowest I've ever eaten because I wanted to savor every single bite. I didn't even finish the entire plate, although I wanted to, because I needed to save room for the tasty Carrot and Chocolate Malt Cupcakes! I highly recommend Truluck's for anyone who wants to wine and dine that special someone or for a special occasion with family or friends.

    My team of 5 chose trulucks as the only restaurant to visit out of 100 participating in restaurant week. The experience was great from introduction, water service, salad course and fantastic entree course until the dessert course which brought the mood down to a lack luster finish. If you are going to do cupcakes make sure the cupcakes taste great and throwing some sauce on it does not count. I know Truluck's could have done better even with a budgeted meal. Remember you have to finish how you start.

    We ate here as part of the 2014 DFW Restaurant Week. Every course was excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly. The portions were large so we ended up taking half of it home. Chris, the manager, came by several times to make sure everything was up to our expectations. While we had the opportunity to try both the chocolate malt cake and carrot cake as part of the DFW Restaurant Week menu, they were created as small cupcakes. The taste was good, but you miss the "wow" factor of the cake layers. But no worries. We remedied this by taking a slice of carrot cake home.

    We've heard of Truluck's for years, but had never visited before and our expectations were somewhat low. (We live near the Addison location and based on the outside it never seemed anything special.) However the Southlake location was amazing! The ambiance was wonderful. The service from our waiter - Robert was impeccable as well as from the manager. He visited our table a couple of times and when I mentioned the sauce on my wife's scallops was delicious, he went back to the kitchen and brought some for me as well. That's service! We had scallops and sea bass. My wife and I both felt we've had better elsewhere, but it was still top notch. Despite the extremely high prices, we will return to this location just for the wonderful service!
