Great restaurant with a professional Waite staff who knows how to cater to their clientele. The service was relaxed and friendly but not overbearing. The food was well prepared and beautifully plated. Definitely recommend the lobster bisque!
Best seafood and steaks in town! I highly recommend the wedge salad. Baked Alaska for dessert was enough for two.
The bar is way too loud for conversation but the dining room is just right. Great food a professional wait staff make it great for a dress-up special dinner.
Outstanding wait staff and seafood selection. Excellent chef productions.
As my friend said, this was the best food he had ever had. My wife and I agreed.
Amazing, will be back to try the desserts.
My wife and I have now celebrated 5 straight anniversaries with the staff at Truluck’s. The service is easily the best in Austin. Professional and friendly staff, impeccable presentation, and remarkable food. We love the great selection of top restaurants in Austin, but Truluck’s will always be our number one.
Trulucks never disappoints. The food is excellent and the service is the best of the best.
The halibut was dry and over cooked, and the Sea Bass was burnt on one side. Fish should never be overcooked. Furthermore a pesky mosquito was bothersome during our meal. We brought it up to the attention of our waitress who just laughed. We recently ate at Pappadeux, and the halibut with octopus was perfectly cooked. For the value and quality of food, Truluck’s is lacking. Our 30th anniversary was not to par with previous anniversary celebrations at Truluck’s.
Seafood is excellent, the menu has lots of choices.
First time at this location. Great place for a date or to celebrate a special occasion (just be prepared to pay the bill). VERY expensive, but definitely worth it. The food, service, and ambiance are amazing. They definitely make you feel welcome.
Great service and atmosphere. The food was very good.
We first dined at Truluck's Downtown in 2002 when my "now" husband proposed to me. We now celebrate our anniversary, and my birthday (the same day) at Truluck's Arboretum each year and I am happy to report that you all never disappoint us! Now only is the food fantastic, the ambiance is fabulous and to top it all off, you all ALWAYS set a special table for us to make things just a little more over the top and enjoyable! Thank you!
Impecable service! comfortable, almost but not too noisy. WONDERFUL steak and seafood. Exactly why we came.
So last night we cane to your fine establishment to celebrate our 2d year of marriage. They greeted us as soon as we arrived and thanked us for celebrating our anniversary here. We were then escorted to our table and to our shock it was decorated with red rose petals. Our waitress Haley and introduced herself to us. From the time we sat down until we left we felt like royalty. Haley was very nice and briefed us on our menu selections which helped out immensely. They we met Shawn the manager and he came over to congratulate us on our anniversary. This was our first time here as we will be back again. We would just like to thank Haley for providing excellent service and her willingness to talk to us for a few minutes which made us feel more relaxed. We want to thank Shawn for also coming over to chat. It’s these small things that you like from such a nice restaurant. Again thanks to everyone from the chef who cooked an excellent meal to the people who made sure our table was ready for our next entree. Kudos to all of y’all and a heartfelt thanks from Ricky & Leeanna

Excellent restaurant. Exquisite service. Delicious food. What more can you ask?
I’ve been to Trulucks on three occasions ALL instances were fabulous.
The fillet was tough, the oysters Rockefeller were not up to par. Over not worth the money I spent.
Service and food were perfect! We had a great evening, thank you!
I have wanted to visit Truluck's for some time. I am glad that I did! My date and I split a ribeye and a lobster tail. The ribeye was cooked to medium rare perfection. The cut was very tender with that awesome ribeye flavor. The lobster tail was crab stuffed and sinfully decadent (I was wondering how I could describe it). We also split a side of the lobster mac and cheese; just awesome. Because it was a dinner date I should mention the ambience was perfect for a romantic meal. The service was also great. I will return to Truluck's!
Absolutely excellent - well deserved reputation! Service was superb! Nice and quiet venue so able to converse around the table. Can't wait to return!
My husband and I were on vacation and Trulluck got great reviews so we tried it. It was nice and quiet, service was excellent and the food delicious! The calimari is a must. The brisket and beef meetball appetizer was delicious! I ordered sea bass with a miso glaze and the fish was so fresh and tasty. We were too full for dessert but they looked great. It’s an expensive restaurant but well worth it.
Great restaurant for special occassions, I enjoyed classic decor which had modern finishes, the live music in the bar area, and the excellent customer service. I will be back to celebrate more special occassions.
We had a delightful evening on Saturday, Sept 22 celebrating my birthday.
Every thing was perfect from the hostess greeting us, escorting us to our beautiful table, decorated with stars denoting a "celebration"...our waitstaff, Fred was excellent, the food (well, we are still talking about it).
We went to Trulucks for my husband's birthday and were so happy with our experience. The food was outstanding.. I have not had seafood like that in a long time!!! I got a lobster tail and my husband got the sea bass and both were exceptional. The service was wonderful and did not feel rushed at all. It is a little pricey, but it was well worth it!!
We had a great waiter. I would definitely recommend this place for any type of occasion.
Swordfish was over cooked, but service was great. I’ll probanl try it again.
Awesome from the moment we arrived
Excellent service and food
They made the night that much more special
Great food and service was perfectly executed. Thanks!
Outstanding experience, great service and food. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
You'll be well looked after. If you like fine dining seafood, this is your place. Service is attentive. Managers genuinely care about your dining experience. Wine list is varied with a good selection of fine wines by the glass. Salads arrive on chilled plates with chilled forks. Portions are generous. Deserts are massive. Too pricey for every week dining, but really nice for special occasions.
Great food, great drinks and great service! Dessert was amazing!
Great experience - the staff took very good care of us as we celebrated our wedding anniversary.
Great food and service, as usual. Not too keen on the music choices, especially the volume. I had to yell a couple of times for my husband to hear me. Not pleasant.
It was great! Thank you for helping my mom and daughter’s birthday special!
OMG. Soooo good. Fresh. Professional wait staff ... but save your pennies because the best isn’t cheap people.
We always love our experiences at Truluck's! Sheng, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable about wines and we appreciate his recommendation for us!
Filet and Scallops were melt in your mouth tender and delicious. Tomato salad is unique and delicious. Cocktails are pricy but pours are generous. Deserts are incredible and for sharing. Love this restaurant. If you live nearby happy hour is 4-7 in the bar!
Great spot for a very nice dinner. Also wonderful dirty martinis
I would give 10 stars if i could for service. Our waiter Shaun was exceptional. The food was great and the environment was outstanding. Made us feel special.
