“Truluck's One of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I have eaten at Truluck's before for lunch and the meal was excellent. I decided to take my wife there for her birthday last night and the experience was awesome. The service was impeccable, and the food even better. My wife had the "date night special" $39 for appetizer, main course and dessert. She had the Hot 'n' Crunchy Idaho Trout and it was wonderful. I had the South Georgia Chilean Seabass and it too was great. Both of us had the Lobster Bisque for appetizer and loved it. We shared the Chocolate Malt Cake for dessert and it was scrumptious.

Our server, Ms. Taylor, was beyond excellent. She had an extensive knowledge of the menu items and was spot on with everything she suggested, including the wines. She was extremely attentive during our entire 2 1/2 hour stay. Other staff that assist (keeping water glasses full, etc) were also excellent, as well as those that greeted us the moment we walked in the door. About 5 minutes after being seated and our server taking our drink order, the manager appeared to welcome us and let us know he was available for anything we needed during our visit.

Not inexpensive, the price of the food, however, is not above what you would expect for the quality, and the service. My wife and I visited Landry's in Kemah a couple of weeks ago (you can read the review under TripAdvisor for restaurants in Kemah) and it was terrible - everything about it. Landry's needs to send their managers and staff to a Truluck's for a training session.

You won't be disappointed if you take the time to have an evening out at Truluck's in Dallas on McKinney.

“Bustling atmosphere in Uptown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

While the steaks are good here you can do better at Perry's or Morton's but the seafood is excellent and this place is a scene. Location is in the nicest part of downtown Dallas near the Ritz and Zaza Hotels. Try the crab cakes, plus the grilled catch of the day is always a good choice. I like the Mahi Mahi when they have it. Fun bar with good cocktail selection.

“Nice Dinner Out, Great Service As Usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Quiet restaurant, great food, always good service when we're there. We enjoyed calamari, shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque for appetizers to go with our rib eyes (perfectly medium rare) and fish. The mashed potatoes were yummy, heavy with garlic. Dessert was the sugar-free coconut cream pie which was lovely. All-in-all, a great dining experience. Our head waiter told us that they are soon building a two-story Truluck's just behind the existing restaurant and will tear down the old building. Interesting news. We'll be back.

“Great seafood and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Very nice restaurant within walking distance of Wyly Theater. Seating is spacious and waitstaff was attentive. Strong wine list and good specials. Enjoyed the salmon and menu is also kid friendly (our two boys split an entree). Kind of expensive, good for special occasions.

“Saturday night light dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Saw this restaurant across the street when dining at Arcodoro on Thursday night. It was after 8:30pm with no dinner reservations, so opted to sit at the bar instead of waiting for 1 hour or more for a table. Two chairs were available at opposite sides, but the staff moved them together & brought a third when it was available. I had the seafood platter for 2 as my meal. It was a platter on ice with 2 jumbo shrimp, 2 very small oysters on the half shell, and 2 stone crab claws. Sauces included tarter, cocktail and VERY, VERY HOT horseradish!!! Be careful, as I wasn't warned how hot the horseradish was & had to spit out a bite because I was having difficulty breathing...The waitress admitted later that they usually caution customers...My girlfriend had lobster bisque soup & a crab cake with a cucumber sauce. Everyone enjoyed their meals! Service was good! Noah, the GM stopped by & talked with us for a while. That was a nice touch! I would highly recommend this place! It is lively, nice atmosphere & great food!
