Truluck's is one of those rare restaurants where you get impeccable service, great food selection, and an atmosphere conducive to conversation and scenery. The entire staff from the moment you walk in to claim your reservation works together seamlessly from beginning to end. We were celebrating a birthday, and by the time we ascended the stairs where the manager greeted us, he was aware of the occasion. He inquired about what we've been up to, and since we had been travelling, when our waiter came over, Kaylin, she said "welcome home." One of the very rare places where you pay a lot, but couldn't get any better service anywhere.

Anniversary, not the best server, timing of meal service was off, seemed to be waiting longer than usual between courses. Server giggled a lot and did not give positive experience.

All the wait staff and front of house were fantastic. The food was amazing and the ambience was perfect. This was my second time there and it will be an annual place I will go when I’m in Austin for work. You have to try the Amy’s Alaska for dessert... omg hands down best dessert I’ve ever had

Truluck's was absolutely fantastic. There were 5 of us that ordered something different from each other and every meal was amazing! It is expensive, but great food, service, and atmosphere. I rarely write reviews, but this place was worth it! The staff was great and offered us suggestions about the menu and what to do even after we were done with dinner. It is a for sure must eat at place! There was also someone that was playing the piano and singing during dinner. He had an amazing voice!

The Truluck’s customer service is phenomenal!!! They were able to make the day as special as possible considering the challenges we endured to get to our reservations on time. But with all the congestion and road closures, as soon as we entered Truluck, all of our anxiety was wiped away. Truluck made my man’s birthday very special!

Always Love Truluck's and tonight was amazing. We tried new things and the waiter offered great suggestions. We need to come back more often. Great cocktails, great wine, seafood is to die for and so, so very fresh.

We had an absolutely amazing experience at Trulucks last night. From the moment we walked in the door the staff was so friendly and welcoming. My date thought I knew Andrew at the Front Desk because of how warmly he welcomed us, he assumed we were old friends! We had a drink at the bar with Eddie before we sat upstairs for dinner. He helped me pick out a glass of Pinot Noir and was so fun we thought about sitting with him for dinner and enjoying the amazing live music. I’m very glad we did go upstairs for dinner, our server Jason was excellent. He had great suggestions from the menu and was fantastic from start to finish. We were visited by the manager Chris who was a delight to talk to and we cannot wait to go back and visit what feels like our new friends at Trulucks!!

The lobster was spoiled! They didn’t charge us for it, but it should have been checked before it was cooked and served. The steaks were average. We will not go back

Truluck's provides the absolute best service at very reasonable prices. The food is of exceptional quality as well. The only issue is the cocktails seemed a little weak.

We love Trulucks Austin! Definitely the premier dining experience in Austin. The service is impeccable starting with the greeting from Adam, a 14 year veteran of Trulucks, he always remembers my name and makes me feel like a very special guest. Management greets every party at their table, and the servers are fantastic.

Every item is prepared to perfection, we always order the seafood celebration, as Trulucks is one of the only places to get stone crab in the area. Sea Bass is another favorite. We also love the Brussels sprouts and Deserts are not to be missed.

Another wonderful experience! thanks Trulucks!

This downtown Truluck’s is always great, but I swear somehow they managed to outdo themselves again. The clam chowder was tasty, the crab cake was amazing, and the halibut special was delicious. Not to mention the service: bar none, absolutely the best servers in all of Austin. We really need to try to go more often, because it frankly is the best restaurant in Austin. Go, and enjoy!

Memorable evening! Beautiful restaurant, classy from start to finish. Even the "napkin swap" that true fine dining establishments use so that guests wearing dark clothing are not left with white lint on their laps. Amazingly fresh seafood and desserts to die for! Truly a high class experience from start to finish. Will return!!
