This was the perfect spot for a Fathers Day Celebration!
Mentioned it was a post engagement dinner. We met 5-6 different staff members including manager and had rose pedals set up at table.. was phenomenal will never forget.
Went there for a birthday dinner. Don’t miss out on the crab cake and lobster bisque. The calamari was very good and a large amount. The Sea Bass was succulent. The meal was finished with a surprise baked Alaska on the house. Service was impeccable from the time you pulled up to valet parking to the time we left.
POST-PANDEMIC PERFECTION - Our first “big evening out” in over a year reminded us how wonderful fine dining can be. From the moment we walked in the front doors at Truluck’s Downtown, we were greeted and welcomed to our immaculately set table. Our waitstaff Brian and Jen perfectly complemented each other; attentive, helpful, never overbearing. We enjoyed some of the best the menu offered, which is saying a lot! The wine list is nicely balanced, the appetizers are truly appetizing and my wife’s miso sea bass, a real menu highlight, has only gotten better since last time! My scallops were perfectly prepared; seared golden, opening to a moist, flaky center. Bottom line, Truluck’s does the little things right, as well as the big things, and that combination is tough to beat!
Wonderful as always and look forward for next visit.
Great date night after our “dining in the dark” event got cancelled. Truluck’s is always a winner! They even called the next day to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, excellent service, food, and ambiance.
Took my Mom to celebrate her 80th birthday and was blown away by the friendly and professional service and over the top celebration of her special day from the hosts, to the managers, to our superior waiters. Really great food as well. I will recommend Truluck's to anyone looking for a superior dining experience.
Excellent food, service and environment. I will be back. The crab Napoleon was delicious.
The ambiance and service was great! Very friendly, helpful and considerate. We were there for my husband’s birthday, and four different people came by the table to wish him a happy birthday:-) The drinks, calamari, salads and Baked Alaska were fantastic! The lobster bisque was the best I’ve ever had, and I do not say that lightly- I am obsessed with lobster bisque! Our main meals were pretty good, but not great. My Mom ordered the yellowfin tuna, and it was over cooked, dry and very fishy:-( We had to send it back (we were polite and they were polite, all good). The filet had great flavor and was cooked correctly, but kind of small, and there’s not a larger option. My scallops were good, and my Dad’s ahi tuna was also good. Overall, it was a special meal, at a special place for a special occasion, and we all enjoyed it:-)
We went for our anniversary. It was amazing that everyone, from the hostess to not just our server, but all of the waitstaff wish us a happy Anniversary. As a return customer, this experience truly shows why this is my favorite restaurant!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and the service and food was phenomenal. Top tier service and attention to detail made our experience unforgettable!
As always, the food delicious, and the waitstaff attentive.
Excellent service from waiter and manager
Anniversary. Staff all welcomed us for our anniversary, brought out dessert to celebrate FOC. Amazing experience. All the food was delicious
Trulucks is our "go to" for special occasions and once again it did not disappoint!!! Great food and amazing service ALWAYS makes us feel special! We celebrated our 38th with dear friends and the whole evening was fantastic!!!
Truluck's is one of my two favorites in Austin and we took an out of town guest for dinner. Again, the service was great and the food amazing. Our guest got the filet and was amazed at the flavor and tenderness. Everything was what I expect when going to Truluck's and we will continue to frequent for our special occasions and out of town guests.
There celebrating our marriage! Staff was wonderful and food was amazing!
I really enjoyed the view of downtown Austin, the fact I was waiting over an hour for my date to arrive made it never racking but the food and hospitality after she arrived made up for the wait. Her being late wasn’t the restaurant’s fault.
Our waiter Rodney was exceptional. He bent over backwards to make sure our food was correct and we were enjoying our experience there. Food was delish and service excellent We definitely would recommend this restaurant. Overall experience excellent
It was my birthday, and all the staff made the evening very special with great service and a free “Baked Alaska”.
We had a reservation for Truluck's for our 25th Anniversary. We have been to the restaurant a couple other times so we knew what to expect but we were wrong. From the moment we walked in the door the people at Truluck's went beyond what we expected. We were lead to our table and the table cloth was covered with rose petals and the staff was more than wonderful looking after our every need or want. Our table was perfect as it was in a corner where you could see Austin very well. The people at Truluck's made out 25 anniversary better than we ever expected . Thanks!
We were late comers for this busy Saturday night spot. While we would have much preferred to have been seated up stairs we ended up at a high top in the quite noisy bar. but festive with live music and a great waiter. The three of us had an appetizer only dinner here for our last night in Austin with our daughter. The food was outstanding and generously portioned, especially the Crab Napoleon! The key lime pie was definitely an authentic, thick with a rich custard, topped with a goodly amount of whipped cream on a graham cracker crust. Yummy if you love tangy key lime!
As they advertise, this place is definitively for special occasions!
All around top notch. Service was incredible to include them calling me the day after to see if everything was good. The king crab, the miso sea bass, the crab cakes, where do I begin. I will be back 👌
Excellent food and service! Thanks
The whole bar staff is delightful!
A big thanks from your neighbor’s at Highland Lounge!
Dutch yellowtail was fabulous!!! Started off with the meatballs and Parmesan yeast rolls that melted in your mouth. The somona greens salad was scrumptious!!! Ended the night with the carrot cake which easily could have fed three. Coffee was delicious. Did I forget to mention the Emerald city drink? Oh, just order it!!!!
It was our 11th Anniversary. From the wine choice to the food.. I give it a 9... they accidentally charged us and brought us the wrong sides but we let it slide
Service, food quality, and ambiance made it perfect date night for our wedding anniversary
What a great dinner and overall experience! We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday. The food was outstanding and the service was first class! Thank you!
Outstanding. Hope the regular menu comes back soon
I thought it would be very quiet on Monday night since it was a bank holiday but I didn't anticipate that it was the end of the legislative session and the restaurant and bar were packed! Even then, we got seated immediately for our reservation and the staff came right over and got us started. I could tell they were very busy but our meal had a good cadence and the management came by to check on us. The food is always fabulous, and since we were celebrating ourselves we had a big round of appetizers, dinner and even dessert despite the fact that no one was hungry by then. We tried the Tuna appetizer for the first time, which had an unique combination of grapes and tomatoes mixed in which was spectacular. My only regret was I forgot to order the hot yeast rolls, maybe next time.
Beautiful dining room. Service was good. Food was just ok. Presentation was good just not tasty.
Our server Brian was outstanding and the excellent service was so refreshing. Thank you for such a memorable evening.
We had a fantastic evening at Truluck's. The staff made our night memorable and the meal was fantastic. We appreciate the service and the follow up call from Monique to ensure our night was special. We will be back!
We love Downtown, Austin’s Truluck’s! Professional service from entry thru dessert. Great food & thoughtful service. Only reason 4 star on food is because the menu is still a bit limited. No reflection on taste. It’s delicious!
This was a special dinner for my grandson’s 8th Grade graduation. The Truluck’s team were outstanding from the moment we were greeted until the time we said our good-byes.
The Truluck’s team made my grandson feel extremely special in their acknowledgment of his success; officially entering into high school.
In addition, the service and food were without a doubt spectacular. The portions were generous, nicely prepared and presented, and we were all served timely.
We will definitely return for a dinner night out and experience other dishes on the menu. Our table fully enjoyed: crab cakes, salmon dinner, scallop dinner, lobster bisque, 7oz steak fillet, two side potato dishes, and their homemade key lime pie.
Everything was amazing! The staff from valet, host to waitstaff was so friendly and helpful. The food was sooooo delicious. I went in with high expectations based off the reviews and I was not let down. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!
25th Wedding Anniversary - come here for our anniversary every year. Never disappoints even during the time of COVID.
Finally an enjoyable experience from start to finish! Nice to be able to enter a business without being harassed about masks.!!
Filet was excellent however extremely small
