Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - Austin Downtown
Anniversary dinner with friends, we ordered multiple (4) apps and tried each other’s drinks, the appetizers were very good minus some of our octopus app being over charred, the drinks were ok, the main courses were all exceptional, and the dessert we shared was good, the amuse bouchée and the ending dessert treats were a very nice touch and tasted wonderful. I would definitely eat here again but only on very special occasions as it was pricy at about $75 pp.
Food was wonderful, service (Eugene) was outstanding.
Awesome experience here. Food is well prepared and unique, entire table loved everything they had. Bar service is a little awkward since what you have at the hotel bar is not necessarily available in the restaurant so assuming it's owned by separate entities. Definitely recommend for a special occasion.
Service level was amazing!! Attentive and informative. Food was great!
Nice room , fairly attentive staff. Interesting takes on food and combinations
Great food great service! Will certainly return!
When in Austin this is some of the best food you can put in your mouth. Every app is a must try!
We had an excellent evening at Garrison. The waiter was very attentive and when he realized we were in from out from out of town for a special occasion, he very generously poured us a nice glass of sparkling wine on the house to celebrate the occasion. Very creative and delicious menu. We will be back and highly recommend.
The service was great, and it was some of the best food I have ever had. It has good ambiance which is both fun but classy.
Great food and impeccable service! We can't wait to go back!
I really enjoyed dining here. I think every is cooked on a wood open flame and the food has a nice subtle wood flavor/after taste. I made a reservation early on a thursday before race weekend. Very nice restaurant with an open kitchen. Staff was very friendly and attentive. I had the grilled octopus, the ribeye, and the chocolate soufflé. I’d definitely recommend the octopus and the ribeye but was torn with the soufflé. The soufflé was good but the vanilla bean ice cream tasted more like sorbet and I thought it didn’t taste like much. I received a few tasting goodies throughout the meal including a serving of their tator tots with gruyere and black truffle. It looks interesting on the menu but I didn’t order it. I’m very happy they brought this out because it was delicious. I sat right In front of the open kitchen and everything they prepared looked amazing. I’d definitely come back when in town and want to try their tasting menu.
Amazing tasting menu and wine pairing. From that moment I arrived, service was great. Bell captain helped me find the restaurant with professionalism and friendliness. Service was excellent, relaxed and efficient.
Each dish was lovely. And pairings perfect to augment the food.
just an overpriced hotel restaurant. good if you want to impress when on an expense account, not value.
great food and atmosphere. Shaun is awesome server/sommelier
Staff and the food are amazing. It was my friend’s birthday and they really went out of their way to make her feel welcomed. Thank you!
The food was an experience. Every dish was unique and on point. Our server, Eugene, was fun and informative. Overall, wonderful restaurant.
Lovely meal with excellent service. Would definitely come again. I felt the it was very well priced and excellent quality.
We have been enjoying Garrison for date nights, anniversaries, birthdays and just because dinners since they opened several years go. Chef Jason and Chef Jordan continue to amaze us with their creativity and mind blowing flavors with all their dishes. The staff is wonderful and the service we receive from Alvin and Enrique is never anything but exemplary. There has never been a dinner that we’ve had that the chefs and staff haven’t provided some sort of kind and thoughtful gesture for us. This is by far our favorite hidden gem in Austin, and we have been in Austin for more than 30 years. A huge thank you for always taking such wonderful care of us!
Food and service was fantastic. All around stellar team!
Top notch service.
Food was tasty but very salty. A little less salt and it would have been great.
Everything was wonderful and George, our server , was great! We will come again!
Awesome. Amazing food and service. Unique dishes. Vegetarian chef creations accommodated our entire group. George was the best server I've ever had. Ever. In all, it was perhaps the finest dining experience I've had yet!
Great experience! We had two birthdays in the group. They started us with complimentary champagne and finished with amazing deserts. 1st class dining experience all around. Everyone had a great time.
Great overall experience. Amazing food, service and venue.
There's something whimsical about walking through the front porch facade (preceded by the beautiful bar/food court that reminds me of some of the more lavish Vegas hotels) and into Garrison's modernly styled interior.
Our servers were attentive and prompt. Our water glasses were never empty; our food was timed perfectly.
The chef's tasting menu was fantastic and full of off-menu surprises. My partner and I are big eaters, and we left here stuffed and really really happy. Wagyu rip cap was fantastic, but the tasting menu's bold ventures into tart flavors are what really impressed me.
-- The cocktails are great, but if you do the tasting menu, the wine pairing is a way better value
-- Fairmont might be the only place in Austin without atrocious parking, and Garrison will gladly validate your parking if you ask!
-- We got the tater tots with whipped gruyere and summer truffles in addition to the tasting menu. Just get it. That dish will please even the pickiest eaters.
We came to Austin on vacation from Arizona, we seen this place while eating at another restaurant and was like we have to try this place before we leave. Sunday September 8 we had a reservation let me tell you from the minute we walked in up until we left was nothing but amazing from the food to the service and the chef’s. I highly recommend coming here for dinner if you ever visit Austin. Thank you again
Great service, amazing food, intimate ambience!!
Amazing food. A couple small gifts from the kitchen added to an already stacked menu.
Fantastic and elegant ambiance paired with excellent food and cocktails
Terrible service. Ordered an appetizer, and it arrived after the entree.
Beautiful experience! Food was a delightful combination of flavors. Staff were very thoughtful and attentive. Ambience was upbeat but very relaxed.
What a great restaurant. We return time and time again. It just seems to get better.
This is our go-to for celebrating. There is no other restaurant that makes me feel as welcome, as valued or as engaged as Garrison. From the exceptional service to the extraordinary menu composition to the brilliant kitchen execution, this is a meal to remember. Go to Garrison, you will be delighted.
Incredibly nice restaurant inside the Austin Fairmont Hotel. Excellent food, unsurpassed service, especially accommodating to a gluten free guest, good but expensive drinks. Varied entrees, all very good. On recommendation, I had the snapper. Delicious but small portion. Best chicken ever, an apricot rub on it was fabulous. Overall, high rated, high priced, well worth every dime.
Fantastic food. Service was perfect!
Excellent service by Daniel. Service here was top notch above all things. Would highly reccomend enhoying the whole branzini as well as the tater tots.Plating on each dish was excellent as well. The only dish that didn't wow was the seared Kampachi.
Overall it was an ok restaurant. Menu a bit limited. Octopus over cooked. Not a restaurant we would die to come back! Service was excellent.
One of the best meals I’ve had in downtown Austin ever. Creative chef who deserves more recognition!
