    My wife & I visited Trulucks in Southlake on Friday night "Date Night". We arrived at 5 on a Friday & the decided to have a glass of wine in the bar. It was very busy & we managed to get the last bar table & the waitress, Molly, was very energetic & povided great service. The goat chees & caberenet were happy hour prices & good. We were seated in a rounded booth with plenty of room in the dinning area & Alen our waiter was as well very effecient & catered to us well. You have to try the Crab Mac-n-Cheese, very delicious. I had the 1/2 lb of Crab & wife had the 7 oz filet for the Surf N Turf. Also ordered the asparagus, which was the only negative side of it all. There were too few of stocks, but delicious. Other quanties were generous & we actually took a to go bag. I would rate this very high for Seafood in the DFW area & will go back again.

    By far the best seafood in town.Most deffinately the best I've had anywhere. A nice upscale restaurant perfect for celebrations. I am heading to Afghanistan in a couple days so my wife and I celebrated my November and her December birthdays there. We started with the chilled seafood platter for two, I had the King Crab as an entrée and she had the blackened redfish Pontchartrain. Throw in a bottle of wine and finished with the carrot Cake! It was an incredible evening and will most definitely be thinking of this dinner with my wife while in Afghanistan.

    Truluck's is a great place for a special occasion dinner or just a special night out. The food is always excellent and well prepared. The staff is very courteous and attentive without being overbearing. This has to be one of the premiere restaurants in the metroplex.

    This was our second time with Truluck's. It had been a long time since our last visit because it was difficult to get a reservation. Our very professional waiter was too busy to be attentive and bar was loud. Wine list was ok, but very pricey and for me didn't have many $100-$150 bottles, only $50 or $250 bottles of good wine. Our "warm goat cheese" appetizer had just come out of fridge, my steak was very under-cooked and returned (but fixed fairly quickly), and our dessert which had previously been arranged as a "birthday dessert" for me, by my wife, came out as a "freebie" from the waiter for the errors and was embossed with "congratulations". It wasn't great. We'll probably wait a long time to come back. We didn't get our $400 worth.

Out waiter went out of his way to make the experience personal and as good as it could be to celebrate a special event. He brought a magnificent dessert to end a perfect meal and evening.

    We ate here regularly several years ago - but then they seemed to ran into chef consistency problems. We gave them another try recently - and are happy to report that they are back to GREAT form. Excellent food and service - one of the nicest places in Southlake! They are back on our rotation list.

    The staff was excellent - polite, attentive, and accurate. The food was mostly excellent- well prepared and presented. The parmesan mashed potatoes could have been a bit warmer, but the rest of the meals were perfect. My wife and my mother both had the one pound crab leg, and enjoyed them immensely. Dad had the 7 oz. filet special, which was prepared just to his liking. I had the salmon, which was also very tasty. Dad had a Grand Marnier, and we split two desserts. A bit of sticker shock at the end, but we only come here on very special occasions, so I expected it to be high. We all enjoyed our meals, and will come back again.

    My brand new fiance and I went to Truluck's the day we got engaged for a nice dinner. As usual the waiter asked if we were celebrating anything that night and for once I was able to say yes! to that question. The manager stopped by with complimentary champagne for us and they also provided a wonderful dessert with congratulations piped in chocolate on the plat. We weren't looking for anything extravagant, just a nice celebration between the two of use and Truluck's helped to make it just a little more special. In addition, the food (filet and mashed potatoes, mmm) was delicious and all of the staff was wonderful.

    Overall Great Meal and Service was top notch. Only real issue was Seafood Platter for 4 was disappointing and not up to par. Crab Legs were cracked in a way that the shell was in tiny little pieces that you had to keep picking out of your mouth which made them very difficult to eat and Oysters were not very fresh and definitely had an "off taste". Entree's and desserts were delicious.

    Had the Alaskan King Crab legs which are always delicious - so sweet-and so easy to get out of the legs because they slice them down the center. My husband had the Cioppino and said it was by far the best he'd ever had. So much seafood in it for the price too! Would've ordered a Moscow Mule but they don't have copper mugs so I opted for another drink. I was disappointed that such a fine dining establishment who actually had it on their menu, did not have copper mugs! For anyone who drinks them, it really does make the drink because it keeps it so cold!

    My companion had the Jalapeño Salmon Béarnaise served with parmesan mashed potatoes and topped with blue crab, shrimp and béarnaise sauce. I had the Pan-Seared New England Sea Scallops with crab and tomato salad, Szechuan green beans and sweet tomato butter. I also added a side of balsamic-glazed portabellos. The salmon and scallops were tender, moist and flavorful. The mushrooms were delicious. The surprise hit of the meal was my Szechuan green beans. They were lightly steamed but still crisp with a very flavorful sauce that had a little kick to it. They were topped with shaved almonds. Truluck's is a nice space with excellent food and service. The bar seemed to be hopping with a live piano man providing the music. Highly recommended.

    My wife and I have began a tradition of dining at Truluck's on our wedding anniversary. Our first year was last year and we repeated this year. Truluck's is a very fine restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The atmosphere is what you want it to be. The dining area can be a private or group setting and the bar area is just as enjoyable. I would recommend Truluck's and it is at the top of my dining list.

    Went to the South Lake location for the first time. Service was excellent, from the hostess greeting us to when we left. Food was excellent as always -- had the South African lobster. Waiter was attentive without being intrusive. He had a large table nearby to tend to, but did not neglect us. The manager came over to "meet and greet" as well.

    We loved it! It was our first time and everything was wonderful. I had the halibut which was perfect and my husband had the pork chops which was a perfect surprise at a fish house. Also, great salads and the ahi tower and the goat cheese starters are the best thing on the menu!!! They could just serve those two only and stay in business forever! I wish we had this in Oklahoma City.

    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.
