While the prices are astronomical, the food and service quality is also astronomical.
Always Top Notch!
Wonderful. We were sad that y’all have a smaller menu bc of Covid.
The stone crab was fresh, crab cakes delicious and the sides were yummy. Trulucks never disappoints.
Best seafood in Austin. Scallops cooked perfectly and the lobster was sublime.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday it was outstanding service and quality of food was divine
Great seafood 🦞 made a trip from San Antonio to Austin just to eat there
It was great! First ‘normal feeling’ dining experience in months!!
It was great to be back. The restaurant did an outstanding job or social distancing and still keeping their high quality environment.
Food and service were excellent as always
we often celebrate special occasions at Trulucks, they always do a fabulous job, with serving, food preparing and hosting, they always make it memorable!
Amazing crab legs, staff was excellent!! Truluck’s is the best!!
We dined at Truluck’s for the first time during our honeymoon. The manager on duty went above and beyond to make our dining experience memorable. Our servers, Cynthia and Jonathan were excellent! They were kind and patient with us first-timers. Cocktails, appetizer, entrees, and surprise dessert were all to die for. We cannot wait to come back for an anniversary dinner!
We had a wonderful experience. The service and food were excellent. Can hardly wait to return.
Very disappointed. The crab claws were mushy and the sea bass was fishy. The service was spot on (as usual).
Always a treat to be at Truluck’s.
scallops, tuna, creamed spinach...all quite good. Ditto calamari.Everything was done right. Only complaint was that the background music was too loud - a quieter room would have been nice and all they had to do was turn down the volume.
Amazing food, Amazing service made for the best Anniversary
We really enjoyed our celebration in the bar area. It made for a wonderful birthday for a dear friend. And I always tell everyone y’all have the best crabcakes in town. And I stand by that still. Thank you again for a lovely evening.
Exceptional service and quality. The meal was superb. Wayne made our experience memorable.
Food was excellent and perfectly prepared as asked. The staff was very professional, and the restaurant took all precautions to be very safe and make the patrons feel safe during this time.
The only place we go for Birthdays and Anniversaries in Austin! Excited they are open again. Family friendly atmosphere, great staff, and such a nice menu selection and ambiance.
From arrival, to menu selection and drinks recommendations, Truluck’s was on-point as usual. “Here are some paper bags to store your mask while you dine,” followed by an overview of specials. Service and food were spectacular, as we have all come to expect. Another enjoyable evening at a brilliant restaurant.
A perfect place for an Anniversary Dinner. Thank you.
For what they charge the atmosphere is very tense and covid paranoid. They refused to take my cash yet took my debit card that I've used at 10 establishments that same day and every clerk had touched. Just doesn't make any sense. I'll skip this place until things return to normal and maybe then go back. The price point is just too high not to get the full experience.
Very good food outstanding service. Very nice. Thank you
Truluck's outdid themselves on our special occasion celebration. Wonderful food, excellent service and an upbeat environment. IT was such a great change of pace during this crazy Covid time.
Best service. Fernando was great to us. Will definitely go back.
Consistently beautiful & delicious.
The Specials this evening were great. The service were great, along with the atmosphere and dessert.
Outstanding first visit. The service and food were superb. I will definitely be returning.
amazing food. best crab cakes we've ever had and we're from New Orleans
They went above and beyond to make my husband's birthday special! The food was spectacular, and the service was top notch! This is the best place to come for special occasions!
Wait staff in bar excellent!!
We miss the desert cause you guys have it reserve just for special moments and we travel from San Antonio to eat there it was a shame we promise 2 people from other country that are visiting that the desert was the cheery on the cake and they where súper sad
fantastic service as well as classy
Dinner was delightful. We ordered a shrimp and crab napoleon and two cocktails, to start. Followed by the chilean sea bass which tasted amazing, although the miso reduction could have been tighter. The japanese katsu hamachi had a burst of flavor profiles. Very delicious , but the fish was a bit overdone. It was cooked to a medium well. We also ordered the lobster mash potatoes. Although not pretty to look at, your jaw will drop when you taste them. They were outstanding. The lobster was buttery in the reduction. Bravo!
We always love Trulucks! We always go for our anniversary.
Yes, Truluck's is expensive but it is worth every penny. The food and service is excellent and they really go above and beyond to help you celebrate special occasions. The entire staff was courteous and professional. Our server, Fernando, was wonderful and made sure that everyone at the table had a great experience.
Amazing as always!!! Never a bad experience at Truluck's :)
