    This was our first time at Truluck’s and it won’t be our last! We decided to try a little bit of everything and got individual portions to share. To start we ordered a bottle of wine and the parmesan yeast rolls. They came with whipped butter that was so yummy. Next we ordered fresh oysters. My only complaint for the night would be that the person who shucked them made quite a few nicks in the shell. I had 2 oysters with multiple large and sharp chunks that I had to spit out. I scratched the roof of my mouth on the second oyster so I decided I had enough. It’s not cute to pick at my mouth in the middle of dinner to try to fish out chunks of shell. It was served with an interesting sauce that I really liked as well as horseradish and cocktail sauce. I would try the oysters again but I would hope someone would put a little more effort towards the care of the shell so that we could fully enjoy them. We then ordered the lobster bisque that was rich in flavor. It had large pieces of lobster mixed throughout. We also ordered lobster Mac and cheese. It was by far some of the best we’ve ever had. You HAVE to order some! Next we ordered the scallop entree and a side of crab fried rice. The scallops were perfectly cooked and had a slight crust on the edge. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes and a creamy sauce. The crab fried rice was amazing. This is also something from the menu that I recommend trying! We had fabulous servers and you can tell the restaurant is run very efficiently. Our server was attentive and kind. Our waters were never empty and our wine glasses were refreshed. I even asked for a little education about caviar because I had never eaten it and Juan took the time to tell me everything I wanted to know. Overall I would give Truluck’s a 9.5/10. Amazing service and food

    Trulucks in Dallas is a great place to go if you want a complete dining event. The service is exceptional and timing is perfect. We never felt rushed or left waiting, that is a hard balance for a busy restaurant. The food quality was 10 of 10 and was as pleasing to the eye as was to the taste. We will definitely be back for the next special occasion.

    The service was nice. Upon entering the building, the attendant greeted my wife by telling her happy birthday. The food was delicious. However, I ordered the carrot cake to go. When I took a bite of a slice, it didn’t taste fresh. In fact, it tasted as if it was in the refrigerator with other food items for quite some time, almost stale. My bill was just over $400.00 and really expected better for what I paid. We have dined at this particular location before and everything we ordered was excellent. Except for the carrot cake yesterday evening, everything else was what I expected from Truluck’s…. high quality food and service.

    The food was amazing to die for. We had the crab n shrimp napolian it was an app but omg I could have just had that. We both ate the miso sea bass with crab rice. Crab rice was ok. Espresso martini was Devine. Crab claws were not as sweet as expected but meaty none the less. Great date night!

    My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary there. The staff was friendly and all wished us a happy anniversary. Our waiter was patient, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was incredible. The prime king crab was to die for! I’ve always wanted to try a baked Alaska and did not disappoint. As expected, the meal was pricey. But for a special occasion, it was worth it!

    Truluck’s was AMAZING! We were immediately greeted and escorted upstairs to a corner table with an excellent view! All staff were very attentive! Our waiter, JT, was simply the best waiter! We told him we wish he could wait on us every place we go! The ambiance, food, drinks and view were perfect! Our food was DELICIOUS! We started with meatballs and crab cake! The crab cake was perfection. We had stone crabs, king crab and filet medallions! All of our food had amazing flavor and was just on point! We had an EXCELLENT experience and we will be back and we will request JT! Highly recommend this place!!!

    We were celebrating our 24th anniversary and we chose this place because when we were recently married we used to eat at trulucks at their old location almost every other day. I had put this in my comments and they gave us a booth that was very similar to what I remembered and had decorated the table. But the best was the service - Eric took such great care of us and made our evening even more special with his attention and attitude. And of course the food was fabulous as always.

    Our server was overwhelm with other tables and we didn’t have the one on one feel and experience we have had in the past. There was a hair in my wife’s salmon and while I finished my steak, we had to wait for the staff to prepare and serve a second time. Did they comp the salmon, yes but the experience celebrating my wife’s birthday with her family went to 💩. Did they replace the food and comp it, yes, did they offer a way to make our birthday experience right? No. They did not. After going to eat lunch and dinner for many years, maybe it’s time to try out different steak places in the DFW area.

    While it had been a while since we had had dinner at Trulucks (read: pandemic), our return did not fail. We first found Trulucks Dallas in its old original quaint venue when steaks were as important as seafood. Although it migrated to more robust digs a few years back, our ongoing visits have been steak driven. Last night met our expectation once again. The petite filets were done to perfection. The only ding we can cite is that everything else is now ala carte. Regardless, those accoutrements were as tasty as we have always remembered.
