Great night out with friends. Crab cakes, steaks, bisque, lobstercargo! I'm so full!!! Steak was so tender inspite of being over cooked. Would definitely return.

Jesse Tobar was the best from beginning (wine suggestion) to the very end. He made some great recommendations that we tried (surf & turf) and were so pleasantly surprised! Thank you for an amazing night ❤️🍷🥩🍰

Celebrating our 50 years since we met. The table rose petals and surprise baked Alaska dessert was nice. Attention to dietary requirements appreciated. We dine here every time we are in town. Thank you for a good dinner!

I have been to Truluck's in Austin at least 25x's.

Obviously a major fan.

Reese --server in Chicago -- was outstanding . Going to reach out to Andrea Gentry to attend the soft opening in Washington DC.

Girlfriend reunion made wonderful by Truluck’s exquisite service, delicious scallops, Caesar salad and crisp fresh white wines! Enjoyable professional piano bar music, although would’ve liked to have requested a song with my tip but was told there’s a set playlist… that aside cannot wait to return with my girlfriend for more lovely music, food and experience.

It was the hubby‘s birthday. It was welcoming and very nice inside. My hubby appetizer the crab cake had a hair on the plate. Ugh! They apologized and rushed to quickly replace it. After the fact I felt like they could’ve made some sort of monetary compensation for it. I ordered the Chilean sea bass with the crab meat rice. I was not impressed with the meal at all. Extremely fishy... didn’t have a good taste at all. We received a birthday dessert which my husband enjoyed. I personally didn’t care for it and wish that they would’ve offered up the menu with other options for me. I personally had heard about the carrot cake and really wanted to try that. Overall I think we were trying again. It just didn’t turn out to be a great birthday dinner as I expected.

The restaurant week menu was outstanding. Both in value, and quality. The service was friendly, attentive while unobtrusive. They asked upon arrival of there was a celebrating event, and we were celebrating our friends retirement. The n/c baked Alaska was outstanding, and enough for the four of us. Very nice touch.

Such a beautiful restaurant! Food was amazing. The crab cocktail appetizer was out of this world(If you are a crab meat lover) I had the Ahi Tuna which was perfectly done. The dessert trio was quite large for a sampling plate. Delicious carrot cake. All in all you will enjoy it. A bit pricy but worth it for a treat night out. Would go again for a celebration for sure.

The scallops and red fish dish are amazing. No better way to start your meal than warm yeast rolls.

My food came out a little undercooked so I had to send back. They were very nice about and all of that other dishes were great. Oysters were amazing.
