    Booked a table for my 10 year anniversary for Thursday at 9pm. Was in the area early had dinner near by. Checked their website saw they opened at 8 so we decided to go a few mins early, they were closed and when I called they told me they don’t open till 10. Didn’t stick around to find out.

    My family and I celebrated my niece's 21st birthday here and it was by far the best spot we visited that night. We will definitely be back and cannot thank the staff enough for providing an experience that went well beyond our expectations. 10/10 recommend and we cannot wait to go back.

    This seems more like a ‘gentlemen’s club’ than a speakeasy. Certainly not a place for craft cocktails and far too noisy for conversation.

    Came here to start my bday at 9:15pm on a Saturday, based on local friends recommendations, which we discovered is too early for a crowd there. It was very quiet & the music to be frank- sucked. The seat cushions were broken & old, it was a pretty dirty place overall. Very clear that things have changed over the years. We had a reservation, but they asked us to move tables shortly in bc someone had just reserved the spot, which I think is a pretty crappy feeling especially on your bday. I expected a lot more from a Dallas establishment.

    I really enjoyed my evening at Truth & Alibi, it starts off as a really cool lounge ala the speak easy concept but throughout the night the energy really begins to climb and you’ll eventually end up feeling like you’re in a ultra nightclub. Bottle service is available as well as table side cocktail service. I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for a casual speak easy in a unique part of town.

    Friendly welcome upon arrival. Enjoyed our seating area for our time window with tasty cocktails and a cool speakeasy vibe.

    This is definitely not a speakeasy. It’s more of a storage closet in the back of the restaurant. There was live music when we went and honestly it was a horrible idea specially in how big that room is. Drinks are super overpriced for very minimal. A public restroom is bigger and cleaner than this place.

    We didn’t even get to experience Truth & Alibi when we were in Dallas. We made reservations for 9pm (which is right when they opened) & we arrived at 9:05 & waited until 9:30 and the door was still locked. Would have loved to experience this place but needing to wait was upsetting. If you open at 9pm and allow reservations for that time you should be ready to go and allow your customers in.

    Making a reservation is a waste of time. We booked a table but they really didn't have a place for us. We stayed all of 5 mins and left. Don't waste your time as there are a lot better places in Deep Ellum to go to.
