    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.

    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!

    Two friends and I decided on Trulucks- Southlake over Del Frisco's- Southlake and glad we did. Got there early, around 5:00 pm. The food was excellently prepared, the service was professional and attentive. The attention to detail was nicely expressed Three hours flew by and the next thing we knew the sun was going down. The Key Lime pie is one of the best in town. The crust was moist and flaky, the key lime filling was perfectly balanced. Try it!! The manager stopped by twice during the evening and I even received a call the next day to see if everything went well.

    My wife and I go to Truluck's once every 3-4 months when we want to have a quiet dinner together and enjoy excellent food and service. We usually get one of the seafood selections but this time we both got steaks, small filet for her, New York strip for me. Both were awesome. The service is top notch as well, attentive without being overbearing. If you're looking to celebrate something special or just feel like being pampered, I highly recommend Truluck's in Southlake.

    Our dinner party consisted of three members of our school's academic administration. Each of us has had the opportunity to enjoy fine dining at other establishments, but our dinner at Truluck's far exceeded the recent experiences in our memories. Excellent lobster bisque, and dinner selections (2 seafood dinners, and one steak dinner) were also very good. There was not much conversation during dinner as we couldn't stop enjoying our meals. We shared the multi-layered chocolate cake for dessert after we thought we were too full to do so. I know I went to the truluck's website to determine the nearest location to our home destination. Looks like we will be waiting for our next vacation and/or meeting to re-experience this place.

    We made reservations online, were seated right away, but in the walk way from the kitchen. Manager offered to move us, we stayed because we were already seated and had a waitor. It was our daughters 18th birthday. Food was good, my all you can eat crab claws meal okay, but expensive. I wouldn't order it again. The lobster bisque, great...

The personal touch of the manager coming over to check on us and give us his card was a nice touch. We will definately go back

    We went to Truluck's to celebrate our son's 21st birthday. The restaurant was fairly empty, but for some reason the service was horribly slow. Our waiter AJ was very good when he came around, but there were long periods of time that we didn't see him. We ordered drinks at the table, and it took 20 minutes to get them. The food came out in a fairly timely manner, but then we ordered dessert and coffee and that was at least 30 minutes. The trout was outstanding, the steaks were very good. Also, it was so dark in the restaurant that we had to get out our phone flashlights to read the menu at the table; they really need to do something about that because it is very inconvenient. I am all for ambience, but eating in the dark is a bit much.
