    Super disappointing visit to one of my favorite restaurants in Austin. I hosted a business dinner for 6 colleagues with very high expectations. We had a problem with our server (Leo). He missed drinks, add ons to main courses and rarely checked on us. One of steaks came out well done that should have been rare. Leo never checked on us after our food was delivered. When another server noticed (Tyler), he jumped into action and saved the deal for us. Very disappointed until Tyler stepped in.

    This is without a doubt my favorite restaurant in the Austin area. It is expensive but service, food, drinks, and ambiance is beyond any other fine dining restaurant I have tried here. You are treated like a VIP the from the moment you enter till you leave. I have yet to have a bad experience here for any aspect of the meal. Again, not a place to go on a tight budget, but if you want to be pampered by an amazing staff with amazing food and drinks this is where you want to go.. They have a simple elegant menu that hit all the notes for just about any person dining here. Its known as a seafood restaurant, but their steaks have been as good if not better than well known steak houses.

    First time there and celebrating our 47th Anniversary and tried the stone crab claws for the first time and could have made a meal of just those! Since celebrating we share the wedge salad and each ordered the Miso Glazed Sea Bass on Crab Fried Rice which was an excellent choice. Ended the meal with a complementary anniversary treat of Baked Alaska. Food, service from our waiter Cody was beyond our expectations. Totally enjoyed our special night out.

    Te lobster mac-and-cheese was absolutely phenomenal. My wife' scallops were great. The whole branzino which is normally moist was a bit dry and overcooked. Hey, it happens sometimes. All in all a nice meal and I WILL go back.

    This is gonna be, unfortunately for Truluck's, a comparison to Eddie V's which is my usual go to. The food at both places is great but the the value at EV's is better. The calamari was the most disappointing. Small app consisting of about 1/2 veggies had small pieces of calamod and no one at table had more than a few pieces. The steak and yellowtail were delicious while the lobster bisque and crab ravioli was not nearly hot enough for service and the shrimp cocktail should've been bigger and more consistent in size. The staff did do a great job of making the birthday celebration special.

    Love to go to this place as the service, ambiance, and food quality are always exemplary. Stone Crabs, Redfish, and Lobster bisque are the best. Baked Alaska is a great finisher. Over the last nine years, I've been there 3 to 4 times a year and always leave very satisfied with the entire service.

    We love Truluck's! The jalapeno salmon with bearnaise is amazing. The chef's oyster selection is always fresh and delicious. Also they carryb10 and 12 year old Pappy Van Winkle small batch whiskey. One of two places that carry it. But to sum it up in a couple of words, absolutely amazing!

    I have been going to Trulucks for 20+ years: both locations, but mainly the Arboretum location. It's one of the best places to eat a "high end quality meal" in NW Austin. Their seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. The steaks are just as good. Their wine list is comparable to any fine dining establishment in Austin. We had happy hour in the bar and it was very good.

    This place has been a favorite of my husband and me for years. Truly incredible food, service, and atmosphere. This year, my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease (gluten allergy) and the staff at Truluck's were all incredibly careful to make sure his allergy needs were met and that he could enjoy his meal safely. Everything was delicious as always and we consistantly recommend this place to everyone!
