Great experience. Everyone from the host to the wait staff were professional, courteous and attentive.
The food was also excellent and well plated so if was a feast for the eyes as well as the mouth. We had a
wonderful meal to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. We had out of town guests from Dallas and they were
also very complimentary of the restaurant and food. Finally, the complimentary baked Alaska was a nice touch
to cap a wonderful evening.

It was a refreshing, civilized dining experience. The staff was well trained, anticipated our needs and were just amazing in every aspect. They guided us through our dinner, without rushing us, and making us feel special. The food was flavorful, portions perfect, and very fresh. We were in the birthday room as all four tables in our section had birthdays. As great as the food was, the service was even better.
Can't wait until our next visit.

We have been going to truluck’s Austin for years....Even before the remodel 8ish years ago. I always bring my parents here when they are in town because usually the service is outstanding. Our last two trips we have had cold entrees come out, long waits for the check after requested, long waits for dessert, etc. Inattentive service. Seems like they are slipping. We had to ask an alternate server for our check this past visit because we hadn’t seen our server in 15 minutes and were going to be late for our next stop. We will be exploring new options for our next night out.

We went to dinner to celebrate my wife’s Birthday. I asked for a quiet table and we were seated at a booth which was perfect for conversation and viewing the skyscrapers and lights of the city. We were greeted in a very warm manner by the nature d. We were shown to a wonderful table and the server, Nero, was extremely friendly and professional. He helped us pick an appropriate wine for our entree (the whole snapper) and he was right in the money in every way. We had the caviar and escargot for appetizers and the whole snapper, the Kung Pow Cauliflower and the Brussels Sprouts. The restaurant then treated us to the baked Alaska for dessert in honor of my wife’s Birthday. That was a very nice and totally unexpected touch! All of the dishes were tasty, well cooked and well presented and then Iver all experience was exactly what we had expected of an extremely well run high end restaurant. I have been to the Truluck’s in Miami and the one here in Austin was a much better experience overall. We will certainly be back to enjoy the Austin Truluck’s experience in the near future.

Chris, the GM helped us when we had a small issue with our meal. He made good on the issue and we were very pleased with his handling of it. JR was our server and he was very attentive. We had a quick timeline to make a show and he kept us on time. The next day I received a call from the restaurant to check in on our experience. It was a nice touch and an evening we will not forget.

I enjoyed our whole experience from being greeted walking in to delightful service and amazing food. The bread is so good! The shrimp cocktail is one of the best I have had. I had the most amazing swordfish and could not finish all. And leave room for dessert...the banana creme brulee was spectacular!

It is always an amazing experience at Truluck's . The staff greets you by name and then follows up the next day asking about your experience. How many restaurants deliver that type of service, along with fantastic food?? Very few!

I was a great way to Celebrate a Birthday. The Birthday recipient had never dined at a Truluck's and had never eaten stone crabs. It was a great experience for the both of us. Thanks for the wonderful customer service.

We made a reservation due to a prospective candidate to join our medical practice. Everything was perfect -- the food, the atmosphere, the service. Great way to impress a client!! The view and the new second floor were impressive. I appreciated that Truluck's contacted us throughout the days before and after the reservation to make sure everything was on track.

As usual, Truluck’s did not disappoint! Upon arrival they are happy to see you and make you feel welcome. The staff is attentive and the manager even makes his rounds to check up on guests. Every appetizer and meal I’ve had is impeccable. We go for many special occasions and they always make the table extra special as well as give a complimentary dessert. Truluck’s never fails us!

Maitre d' Andrew provided a warm welcome as 1st dinners, I asked if we could have a cocktail at the bar before we are seated for dinner, Andrew, no-problem enjoy even though we arrived at our scheduled reservation hour.
Dinner was prepared perfectly a rare plus 7-oz Filet and 5-oz Lobster Tail, a a new englander I know well how lobster should be cooked, it was moist and delicious
Best restaurant I've been to in a while, I travel the country and haven dinned at every popular steak chain restaurant multiple times in 25+ years.... don't miss out on Truluck's.... Outstanding!
