    The tomato with king crab was excellent- Our waiter recommended the crab claws - no taste. The filet we ordered medium came out almost rare. The Branzino might have been okay, but it was over cooked AND then they poured a vinegar sauce all around it. It was gross. Over all not the true Trulucks experience…. The Manhattan was perfect and the bread was good…

    The service and food were both amazing. The atmosphere was perfect. I would like to see the dress code enforced. Dress code is clearly posted and anyone wearing shorts snd flip flops to dinner should not be allowed. Not a negative towards food and service though. Both were exceptional.

    Loved having the piano as the background music. Service was out of this world. The food was just as good. We got the miso glazed sea bass and it was so good. One of the best lobster bisque I have had. We wanted dessert but just too full.

    Already left notes with Mimmi when she called. Food was sub-par. Shrimp left in crab boil overnight. poor taste and over-salted. Tomato was HEB mealy and 4x6. Salmon crudo was all belly scraps and heavily sinu. Entrees were overcooked and mashed potatoes were cold. FYI MASHED POTATOES AND FISH DO NOT GO TOGETHER. 2 hours for cold apps, salad and overcooked fish is not the Trulucks we were expecting.

    We have eaten at a couple of time at the Trulucks in Chicago and loved it! Our experience in Austin wasn't as great. The calamari was disappointing. It was more breading than calamari. The salmon was bland and dry. I was offered to put a crab bearnaise on my salmon. I opted not to get this but didn't realize it was all or nothing. I was very disappointed with the lack of flavor.

    My dinner experience was Amazing. Went there to celebrate my anniversary and it was also our first time. The service was outstanding. From the minute we arrived Valet was extremely courteous, hostess stand was also extremely nice by wishing us a happy anniversary and made sure to let our waiter know we were celebrating. Table was set up with beautiful rose petals and we ended the night with a beautiful complimentary dessert from the restaurant wishing us a happy anniversary. Didnt want to end this review without mentioning the great food and excellent service from our waiter who truly made our first time here the ultimate. Will definitely be returning.
