Met friends for brunch on New Year's Day service and food were exceptional. Reasonable
Drink prices and a good vibe not quiet but vibrant without being noisy. Definitely will
go back and refer friends.

Nice place for special occasions. We dined there on New Year's Eve. The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was good but somewhat overpriced in my opinion. There were four of us and we ordered the tasting board, which may have been ok for two but not for four. There was a tiny bit of 3 cheeses, a little bread, a sauce, a dab of a couple veggies and 2 blackberries. A bit skimpy for $17. For entrees we had a spinach and ricotta pasta, which was tasty but not a lot different from other pastas, diablo pizza, which was spicy but not hot, a hamburger and a cheese pizza, both of which were very good. The coffee was excellent, as was the olive oil cake dessert.

We usually always bring friends here for the Akashi burger which is usually amazing. This last visit we asked for extra sauce because that's one of the things that makes it so good. I'm glad we did because the burger seemed to have very little if any sauce on it which really made it taste different. The crab dip was so horrible that my friend had to send it back. It was kind of an off night with the food which is usually fantastic. I'm hoping this was just a one time deal. We didn't ask for anything to be comp'd but our waiter was great and didn't charge my friend for the crab dip.

Good restaurant in busy Southlake town center.
The best part (by far) was Hannah our server. She is amazing.
The gyro plate was good but "deconstructed" and my party found it unsatisfying as a result. The hamburger was the winner by far.
We will come back.

We had trouble getting reservations for a group a couple days before Christmas. These folks were accommodating. We had a nice time. In addition to appetizers, the group ordered a wide variety of entrees. The gyro plate, the chicken sandwich, the pork chop were all reported to have been excellent. Service was attentive most of the time; there were other groups there. Music may have been a little louder than we'd have liked, but this is a bar.

The drinks were good but the food was expensive for what was served. The service was fair as well. Our server kept coming by and asking us to sit down, when some of the individuals had just arrived and were saying hello. I don't think we will be back for another event.

This is a hidden gem in Southlake Town Square. The food, service, and atmosphere are all terrific. I go there all the time with the girls or on date night. Everything on the menu is wonderful. They have an extensive gluten free and vegetarian menu. If you go during lunch, ask for Kelly she is the best server ever!

First time dining there. Food quality better than expected for a mall ( Southlake Town Center). Creative menu, mostly well executed. Pear and fig salad very good, as was grilled artichoke and salmon. Deconstructed flatbread had good flavor, but was difficult to eat ( topping kept falling off). Nice wine list, reasonably priced. I would go again if back in that area, but not a destination restaurant.

First time to Soutlake location (been to Frisco location MANY times) The outdoor seating is much better in this location. Menu is the same, the Naked Avocado as an appetizer is an absolutely must every time I go to TruFire. I had the Spinach & Quinoa salad with salmon and it was great!

I ordered a light meal of Naked Avocado salad with grilled shrimp. It was perfect for what I wanted. The food at this restaurant is always great. I have had the Bolognese, the Mediterranean Shrimp, the Pork Chop, and it was all great. I also like the Lil Goat appetizer.
The service was fast and friendly. This is definitely one of my go-to places where I know I won't be disappointed.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area, but this is the third time in a row that it was just simply sub-par. I don't know what has happened. The first time we went both the food and service were superior. The ingredients were fresh, everything seemed to be made with care and flair, and the wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The next time or two just simply didn't quite reach the exemplary standards from the first, but it was so good the first time we kept coming back. But each time the food has gone down in quality. The salmon on the Salmon Benedict, which used to be my favorite dish, was literally tough and inedible the last time. It tasted like pre-packaged salmon that had been left out too long. They used to have fresh muffins that were tender and delish. The last ones were so stale and tough I couldn't get a knife and fork through them. I don't know what has happened to this place. Unfortunately, after three bad experiences, we won't be coming back.

Absolutely loved ALMOST everything about TruFire. The ambiance is wonderful, with a spacious yet cozy patio. The food is delicious; I wanted one of everything on the menu and thankfully my fellow diners were willing to order a few different items to share. The deconstructed flat bread 2.0 is a must try and the wine/cocktail list is creative and extensive. So why the ALMOST? Our waitress was absolutely awful!!! Im not talking about her service skills, they were fine for the most part, it was her horrible attitude. We actually felt as if we were doing something wrong by being there. She was surly and totally put out that she actually had to do her job. I had ordered a glass of wine and after 5 minutes it still had not arrived (the restaurant had like 15 people in it so the bar was not backed up), we decided to order a bottle and got her attention to see if we could make the change. When I asked if she had put the wine order in yet she bit my head off and said she had not. While I find the length of time it took her to put in the order ridiculous I guess it worked out? I get we all have bad days and sometimes we don't feel like working but I do not expect to have that taken out on me for simply deciding to dine at your establishment. Long story short, I will go back to TruFire but if she shows up to my table again I will walk out the door. I suggest management take a look at how their customers are being treated; great concept, food and environment will not save you if the staff continues to run off your patrons.

I ordered the deconstructed flatbread and it was not memorable. Pita Bread triangles arranged on one side of a plate with 6 lines of additional ingredients: yoghurt dill sauce (blah), tomato sauce (tasted like Spaghetti sauce out of a jar), feta (ok), red onion caramelized (the best thing on the plate), and -in my case- shrimp (good). When I look at ingredients like this I assume that the chef try to bring out middle eastern flavors with authentic spices. But it had little to do with middle eastern food. It tasted like Texas "corporate food".

It was our anniversary so we wanted to go to a new place for dinner. We first ordered the crab cake dip for an appetizer. It was terrible. No questions asked they took it back. We ordered the hummas and it was perfect. I got a margarita on the rocks and it was one of the better margaritas I have had. For dinner we had the spicy shrimp noodle. WOW. This meal was amazing. The flavors we so good and different. You can't go wrong with this dish. Cole was our water and he was great. New the menu well and very upbeat. Ask for him.

It was my first time. I sat on the patio, and I have to say service at first was unacceptable, it took 30 mins, but a few more minutes later I had a meatball dish from heaven cooked for a King. I got the Smoked Meatballs, which is served with a fried egg on top. It was very good, but I think there is too much spice in the pasta, which over flavors the fried egg. I had enough food for two meals on the dish which cost $20. Unfortunately after waiting an incredibly long time trying to pay with card, I can only give them 3 stars. Bottom line food was great, but service sucks, and I would likely not go back.

Took the family to TruFire Kitchen & Bar in Southlake. The service was excellent and by all accounts the food was delicious. We ordered everything from hamburgers to baked salmon. My only negative was the preparation of the hamburgers....taste was good, but there was so much sauce that the buns were wet, and you could not eat the burger in the traditional manner.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to TruFire. The food was incredible, really some of the best we've run across since moving back to this area. They have a lovely outdoor dining area that was just perfect for our Sunday brunch. Our waiter/service was a bit slow, but the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful with making choices from the really large menu.

Our food choices were mostly perfect. The Lil Goat appetizer was one of the best appetizers we've had in ages, and the Smoked Salmon Benedict was beyond perfect. My husband's breakfast tacos were a bit small for a man (I would probably have the waiter point out to anyone ordering in the future that it's a fairly small plate), but the taste was excellent. The value for the food and drinks ($5 Bloody Mary's and $2 for really interesting and fun mimosa options) was excellent. We will be back soon!

TruFire Kitchen is one of my favorite places to go with friends for brunch, lunch or a casual night out. Love their menu, especially their bar menu. The portions are generous (not over the top) and pricing is fair considering everything tastes so fresh.

Their staff is friendly and attentive and great at making recommendations, as there are so many yummy options on the menu it can be tough to make a decision.

We were there this past Sunday for brunch. Our party included 9, 15-year-old girls and 7 moms. We were there to eat before heading to Dallas to see a musical. Our waiter, James was spot on. He was patient, great with the kids and quick with drink refills. A few ladies at our table enjoyed an array of mimosas; peach, blackberry, blood-orange. Our food was delivered promptly (not one error) as were our (divided) checks. Everything was fantastic. A few women in our party had not been to TruFire before and were saying, "We need to come here again!"

Kudos to the TruFire Management and Staff!
