I went to Truluck’s on Saturday May 18th for a 5:30 dinner. I had a HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. I wrote about it and Yohan Vajifdar IMMEDIATELY reached out to me via email with his sincere apologies concerning my DEVESTATING experience. He asked me to please consider giving the Truluck team a “DO-OVER”. While contemplating if I would EVER step back into Truluck, I received another email from Chris Jones asking me to call him and tell him a little bit more about the ATROCIOUS dining from before. I called and he also asked if I would consider giving Truluck another chance to do it right. I made a reservation for two, (the original reservation was a party of four, but the other two would not even consider the chance of being treated so shamefully as the May event), on June 22nd for an 8:30 reservation. I called ahead the night before and spoke to Mr. Jones who assured me Truluck would be ready for the “DO-OVER”. Andrew, Chris, Zach Todd, and server Jen did an OUTSTANDING job making myself and my guest feel welcomed. I give special thanks to our main server Callie for going ABOVE AND BEYOND her duty, but I want to give the GREATEST thanks to Mr. Vajifdar! From the moment he 1st made contact with me until he practically escorted myself and my guest out the door after our dining experience he was TRULY heartfelt in EVERYTHING he did. He escorted us to our table PERSONALLY, checked on us throughout our meal to make sure all was going amazing and it was! My guest and I were TRULY treated like royalty from the time we stepped in until the time we left. Nothing was two good for us and at one time we had four different people serving us at the same time. Now I see how the other half lives lol just kidding, but all jokes aside Mr. Vajifdar made a very unpleasant experience turn into a MAGICAL one!!! Thank you from the bottom of this retired Gulf War Veterans heart! You went above and beyond my wildest expectation!!! Yohan, Chris, Zach, Callie, Jen and of course.....Andrew thanks!

Friday night was our first time at your restaurant. We went to celebrate our anniversary and were blown away! The warm reception; beautiful interior and view; excellent service and fantastic meal made our night very special. Plus the surprise Baked Alaska that we somehow found room for. We will definitely be back to check out the bar and music. Sorry we missed your personal call. What a wonderful touch!

A wonderful and special experience for our anniversary, highly recommended! They currently offer a three course $55.00 fixed price summer dinner with many choices for entree, appetizer, and dessert. Service is very attentive. It is quite expensive, so we would reserve for a special occasion. The upstairs dining rooms are somewhat quieter than the downstairs dining rooms and bar and feature large windows for a light-filled view (which currently is one of building construction all around, so typically Austin). Valet parking a must on this busy Austin Warehouse District corner.

Wonderful first time experience. I made reservations for my honey's birthday and we were both pleased with everything. The staff were professional and attentive from the time we walked in until we left. Food was delicious, ambiance was perfect and our gracious server was the icing on the cake. Can't wait to return. Thank you, Truluck's for making my guy's birthday celebration one for the books!

HIGH prices...overwhelmed service...not what one expects for a fine dining experience. there are MANY other high end steak and seafood restaurants which execute flawlessly...Trulucks is not one of them. I will not be back. Too many anoying oversights and needed promting..simple things, like filling water, pouring wine, reordering wine when the bottles are emptied...not removing plates, etc.

This was my second time to Truluck’s. I was very excited because my husband and I were making out way from California and meeting our kids from New Jersey. We are house hunting in Austin. On this occasion I brought with me my children to celebrate my birthday. I thought the staff would have made it a more memorable occasion but the only difference was that there was a bit of silver confetti on my table as we sat down. Needless to say I was disappointed because my expectations were much higher. I love the food and the service so I will be back again; however not for a celebratory occasion.

The service was slow, and we were in no hurry. And it was slow at every course - appetizers took a bit - the entrees were slow, as was dessert - though all courses were worth the wait. It didn't detract dramatically from the evening, but we noted it at every course.

Great ambience and service. Celebrated my wife's bday, visiting from San Francisco. The restaurant was highly rated with over 2700 reviews and it lived up to it! Stone crab was the reason we were there but unfortunately was not in season. Alternatives crab claws were almost as good but pricey. Our guests had the jumbo Alaskan crab legs and they loved it. Steak was also well prepared. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, not as good as I had expected but not bad. Service was top notch from beginning to end. Our guests left behind their sunglasses and we received a call before leaving the city. A young man met us curbside for it. Highly recommend.

The best place I’ve been to in Austin for elegant dinning . I booked on opentable and in the notes stated turtle cheesecake was my boyfriends favorite . Anywho, the restaurant doesn’t make that type of cheesecake but they customize one to mimic it . The food was great and the service was even better !

Second year in a row for our anniversary dinner. Everyone wished us well. We had an excellent location upstairs. Fantastic service as always, attentive but not overbearing. Well paced between courses. Food was fantastic. Very fresh Ahi, excellent new appetizer of lobscargo. The ceviche was a great complement. We will be back again even before our anniversary.

The food, wine and service were spectacular! The AC upstairs was broken so it was a little warm, but bearable. It was a bit noisier than I would have preferred but the food more than made up for the noise and heat. Our table also had a nice view of the city.
