I used to write glowing reviews about this venue, but a visit yesterday revealed they have decided to use cheaper ingredients, (flour on the pizza crust) and products (salmon no longer sockeye). The salmon was so bad, it had an odor, and I returned it. To their credit, they took it off the check.
They also were out of a number of bar liquors, which they normally stock. Can no longer recommend.

We were there to celebrate a friends birthday. I brought in a small cake that our server offered to put in the cooler to give us more room while we ate. Then when it was time she brought it out with lit candles, took our pics, then cut and served it for us! Not many restaurants would be this generous with a outside food item. We'll definitely be back for the next b-day celebration.

The service and food were great, especially the gluten free menu! The restaurant was a bit dark for daytime where we were sitting and the restroom was also very dark and could use a little brighter lighting. It was a great experience overall and we would go back again!

Went in for lunch. Other than the hostess not listening to confirm our Open Table reservation and the waitress messing up our order, it was good. Would go back.

Food was fantastic. We had the house omelet and the pancake, far too much food for just two people. Coffee was also good. Live music on a Sunday morning. Great service. Overall, excellent choice and we'll be returning for sure.

Not our first time at Tru-Fire and definitely not our last. The place was as busy as we have seen it and the staff was still very attentive. The drinks were very good, the Moscow Mule is perhaps the best one in the area. For the entree we both had salads which were fresh, delectable and very satisfying. The lemon desert that we had was outstanding as well. Overall it is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

We were somewhat surprised at how our most recent visit differed from our visit a few years ago. We remembered this location as somewhat upscale, craft cocktails, not so loud. Our visit wasn't bad, just not at all what we expected. Appetizers were odd--I get the deconstructed fad, but it honestly isn't fit for every dish--in this case flatbread would be more enjoyable put together. Even more so when you order what you believe will be 3 separate flatbreads.

We were going to be in the Southlake area Friday night and decided to try TruFire based on good reviews we read. It certainly did not disappoint! We ordered the Lil Goat appetizer and both chose the smoked meatball pasta entree. It was outstanding! We sat outside in the patio since the weather was surprisingly mild for a Texas summer day. Great experience! Highly recommend this place.

The service was not worth the final cost. The server seemed bothered by my friend and I because we didn't "fit in" with the rest of the crowd so I made it a point to tip her well. The food was good but no recommendation of a drink to go with dinner made me realize that no effort was going to go into our service. I felt unwelcome.

We were there for Mother's Day. We went at noon and had our children And grandchildren. We knew it would not be quiet..
our waiter was great. And I wish we could remember his name. I'm thinking Rick or Nick? We were in the back corner in that separate glasses room. Party of 7. He was great very accommodating.

Despite the great food and excellent service we will not go back to Tru Fire Kitchen. It is SO NOISY it spoils the good things it has to offer. It is deafening. I felt like we had dined on the runway at DFW. It's a shame. They could fix it if they wanted to

This is the second time we've visited TruFire for Sunday brunch. Great place. Food is very good and the service is fantastic. Prices are not too bad.

This past experience was lots of fun with live music. The music was a LITTLE bit loud inside the restaurant (as in, you couldn't talk to the host/hostess without significant effort). We sat outside, however, and it was nice. Great people watching as patrons shop.

Lots of brunch options. The Bloody Mary Bar is a MUST. Great selection of top notch ingredients. Only rooms for improvement would be a better beer list with more local brews, potentially a draft beer system (All beers are in bottles/cans), and maybe a couple additional eggs benedict options.

Great food and excellent service. Opted to sit inside and in retrospect should have sat on patio. Atmosphere inside was dark and quiet. Would have liked more light, some good music and a more vibrant scene. Will return due to good food and will sit outside, weather permitting next time.
