We were here last Saturday as well as today.
Basically had some of the same items for dinner, but the quality of the “cook” was not the same.
The salads were way over salted and crab cakes were dry and bready today. Last Saturday they were succulent and full of lump crab, salads were delicious.
Our Napoleon crab was mushy today and had lots of mayonnaise, last Saturday it was full of lump crab and fresh.
Our waiter was not very attentive today, slow service and never offered a refill on our drinks.
Needless to say....it will be a while before we return and it certainly won’t be on a Sunday.
As for the food all we can guess is, you must’ve had different chefs.
The maître d’ or floor manager, or whatever you call him, had his own issues.
We have been here many times before and this has been the worst.
Maybe we just need a break.

Oh my! I can't give this place enough stars. Service, food, ambiance...AMAZING! The bread was melt in your mouth. Never being to this place before, our waiters, Jeff and Juan, were the epitome of hospitable. Sea bass was out of this world yummy. Why get the crab legs when the crab cakes are full of meat. Amazing! Very romantic...we will definitely be back.

Best customer service I have had in a long time. Excellent place to take a loved one for special occasion like an anniversary, birthday, etc. Menu prices are pretty high but it is well worth it.

Everything was great until checkout...the food was impeccable...service was good until we had to wait 30 minutes to be checkout out!!! Finally we went downstairs to the hostess stand and told her we were ready to check out...she got the manager then the waiters ran down like we were dining and dashing...it was insulting. We still tipped but that was unnecessary. I don’t like my time wasted or them being inconsiderate and assuming.

The menu is very limited, the prices were insane. The service was just o.k. We were given a Christmas gift card, unfortunately i would ask our son not to repeat this gift. It is very sad we have gone there for years, but not again.

Possibly the least enjoyable Trulucks experience we have had. With the exception of the Hostess's greeting upon arrival, the restaurant was very flat. Food was generally adequate (stone crab claw, beef filet and king crab), although crab cake was good. The room had no energy, and while it was early 6-8 pm, we have dined her numerous times and both thought it was no comparison to previous visits. We will take a break from Trulucks and hit up some of the other nearby beef/seafood spots (Perrys, Nick n Sams, DF Dbl Eagle and EddieVs), and see how they are faring thru this time. It was THAT sad saturday. I would not return or recommend to a friend based on this visit.

I had a great first time visit with Trulucks! My server Juan, was very nice, attentive & very open to answering any questions I had about the menu. The food was amazing. I had the crab cake for appetizer and the king crab leg with crab fried rice for dinner. Overall experience 10/10 I will definitely be back!

Steak was a little tough but to be fair, Trulucks is not known for their steaks. The seafood is among the best.

This is a solid choice for great seafood in Dallas. I’ve been to this location a few times for special occasions and it’s always a bit. The stone crab legs are not to be missed, and the sea bass was amazing. I’ll definitely be back.

I went for Easter dinner. It was an overall fantastic experience because of how great the staff and food was. The valet attendant, host, waiter and manager were all super friendly and made it a very enjoyable evening. The waiter gave out great recommendation and the food was very delicious. I stuck with seafood, but the steaks that came out of the kitchen looked amazing too. Seems like you can’t go wrong with either. If you have a sweet tooth definitely go for the Baked Alaska dessert dish. Prices are a little steep for a restaurant like this, but I think given how great the staff was it’s worth it compared to other restaurants I have been to with a similar food offerings.

The staff at Truluck’s was wonderful! The ambience was just right. Was a little disappointed with the quality of the fish specifically the halibut. It was overcooked and the overall plate was not worth the value. The appetizers and the other fish plates we ordered were great. Overall it was a good experience.

Went for a nice lunch. It was relatively empty around noon. Food was good. Service great. I always think Trulucks is a little pricey for steak compared to other nice places. But we will def be going back.

Highway robbery. Ate at the old location many times, food was excellent. Something has changed. Had Crab Louie, Crab Cakes and Lobster Tail. Louie and cakes were nothing special. Lobster tail was listed on the menu as "Market". Thought I would be cool and not ask the waiter the price. Big mistake. Tail all by itself was $99.00. It tasted like it had been just thawed out in the microwave. We have crossed Truluck's off our list.
