Always a great experience. Waiter was too busy with other tables and we had to ask for more water and other basic stuff.

All you can eat stone crab is not as good of a deal as it used to be at $85 per person.

Been here a quite a few times and feel the high end classier feel is gone and it’s become more casual “who cares” austin. Brought someone from out of town and he wanted an upscale restaurant. I was embarrassed it didn’t turn out that way

We celebrated our wedding elopement here! The staff did an outstanding job of making the diner a really special event. They brought us complimentary champagne, and a fancy desert with our name on it. Everyone at Truluck's was outstanding!
The meal was simply amazing! All the items we got were flavor explosions! I got the Sea Bass, and I've never had it done so well. The Kung Pao Cauliflower was the coolest way I've ever seen cauliflower made, and the Lobster Bisque was divine!!
Thank you for making our wedding day so special!!

We went for our son’s 20th birthday. From the moment we walked in to our departure, the entire staff made this a magical experience. They clearly had a shared philosophy of excellence, attentive without being intrusive. The menu was fantastic, and the food was amazing. Everyone we encountered could have written, much less read the customer service book “FISH!”

This is a good restaurant with good seafood, rather stuffy atmosphere which brings with it too high a price tag. It's just relatively low bang for the buck.

Service was outstanding. They made sure to wish me a happy birthday all along the way to our upstairs table . The food was a bit on the salty side that’s why I gave it four stars - other than that everything was great!

Service was excellent and what you would expect.The food was good but no better than many other lesser priced restaurant in Austin. We all ate seafood and all our dishes were overly rich. The baked Alaska for desert was just a wedge of ice cream and nothing special. If I go again I’ll try stone crab and/or steak. And the bread which was delicious.

Wonderful experience from start to finish...which even includes the reservation process and follow up the day after the dinner. If you're in Austin, even if only for a couple of days, Truluck's is definitely worth the visit. You will not be disappointed.
