Incredible meal. Had small oysters from Massachusetts along with the shrimp and crab appetizer. Both were incredible. Cocktails were great as well with good recommendations from the wait staff.

We had the Miso Sea Bass and the Salmon and added scallops with that as well. Both were incredible.

Great meal with great service.

brought friends here, my suggestion. Fish was dry, the very expensive dry age steak that we were told was 18-20oz was tiny and over cooked. Maybe it was an off night.

It is an exceptional restaurant. Expensive, but the service is impeccable and you cannot beat the ambiance. If you want to impress someone, this is the spot. Remains one of my all-time favorites in Dallas.

I treated my parents to a 35th anniversary dinner. The food was outstanding and the service was even better. Amanda and Corey took care of us the entire time and also shared some of the exciting changes coming to trulucks. Definitely a night to remember!

I have a new favorite restaurant in Dallas - it's Trulucks. They absolutely nailed it - food (fresh Florida crab claws), service, vibe and the view. Spectacular. Live music was awesome. Can't wait to go back!

It took over 1 1/2 hours to get our main course. We ended up being there 2 1/2 hours. Service sloooow. They couldn’t even keep my wife’s iced tea glass full. A real disappointment and too expensive.

We were seated in a comfortable booth and we sat there for several long minutes before we asked a bus boy to call for our waiter to come to the table. After another brief wait, we were greeted by Eric & Joe. They were a great team and turned the so-so start into a perfect evening. Eric recommended the oysters which were delicious. We ordered the stone crab claws for our entrees. They never disappoint. Thank you Eric & Joe for the great service.

I made a reservation for NYE, which is my wedding anniversary, on on October 6. When I was called by the restaurant on 12/30 to confirm my reservation, they commented that I was one of the first to reserve for NYE. I did not get to eat dinner. When I arrived at 8:25 for my 8:30 reservation, I was told they were running behind and that we should get a drink at the bar. Unfortunately, there was no where to sit at the bar and we had to be shuffled around by the cocktail servers because we were in the way in the place where we were asked to wait. I waited 35 minutes before I asked any questions, and I when I did (I was not the only one asking lots of questions), I was told that I was 2 people away and that the hostess would come get me. 5 minutes later the hostess came to find me at the bar to tell me my table was being cleared off and that I would be seated shortly. She never came back. Instead, after 10 more minutes, my wife decided to try her luck with the hostess, and was told we were next just seconds after hearing the hostess tell someone else they were also next. Finally, at the hour mark, after two rounds of drinks at the bar (involving repeatedly painstaking process of getting a bartenders attention), my wife and I simply left. Even if we had been seated at that very moment, the obviously roaring wildfire of panic and discontent engulfing the restaurant would have ruined every aspect of the meal. No one took my information. Instead, someone at the front gave me someone else’s card, although I’m not sure what purpose that was intended to serve. In sum, for my reservation I made nearly 90 days in advance, I was able to pay an obscene mark for 4 whiskeys that I drank standing in the corner of your bar while being constantly ignored or misled or by your staff. Oh, and for the privilege, I had to valet my car. Pathetic.

Because by that point it was 9:40 on NYE, we picked up something to cook on the way home because where else were going to get in for dinner?
