We had an absolutely incredible experience at Trulucks! From the moment we walked in the door, being greeted by the hostesses, to being seated, to our amazing meal and the service throughout the evening - it all well exceeded our expectations! I can’t say enough good things about this place. It truly was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Not only was the service impeccable, but the food was prepared perfectly and tasted out of this world. Best filet I have ever had! Our shrimp cocktail was so fresh and flavorful. I can’t wait to go back! Thank you!

Our party of 8 celebrated my birthday dinner at Truluck's this past weekend, and it could not have been a finer meal. The staff, the food, and the setting was perfect. Our waiter Phil did an amazing job with our meal. We will recommend your restaurant to all of our friends. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Just ok. We have been to the Trulucks in Southlake and Dallas many times, which are phenomenal. This was our first time to the Austin location--and not so much. Staff was nice, wait time for food was unacceptable. None of our entrees came out at the same time. One of our lobster tails was very chewy. Crab cake appetizer we were picking out shell pieces. Just overall nothing like what we expected especially to celebrate a birthday. Will only go back to Dallas or Southlake.

Ribeye just a bit to salty ... other that that, yummy. Service started well but deteriorated. Would definitely go back.

Took my wife here for a rare night out and really glad we came. Started the evening off with an excellent bartender and some cocktails, and a delicious shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were huge and the cocktail sauce was fresh made. Then we moved on to dinner, where we shared a bottle of bordeaux and a stone crab claw to start with. The stone crab was served chilled and pre-cracked and was fantastic, there's really nothing like it. For our main courses, I ordered the surf and turf and my filet was cooked with an actual cool red center when I ordered it rare, which is perfect. Altogether with the lobster tail it was an incredible meal. My wife had scallops and they were cooked perfectly as well - not overly done, but not undercooked either - just right. Our waiter was attentive and kept us refilled all night whenever our wine ran low - he did a great job making us feel like our time was valuable, which is precisely what I want on date night. We will definitely be back!

Overall very good experience. Lorrie, our server, was fantastic! Welcoming, attentive and friendly. Tomahawk steak was not as good as we would have expected (especially for the price), but overall, everything else was great. Would go back again and also recommend this location for a nice Austin dining experience.

We dined here with another couple on a Friday evening that at the beginning of a 3 day visit to Austin. It was a great start to the weekend. This is not a traditional steakhouse. Half the entries are seafood and the room is modern with big windows looking out over downtown. There is also love background music out of the lounge. The service was outstanding. Our server was very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. A manager stopped by after we sat down and give us his card for contact if we had any issues. We shared appetizers, had seafood entries and shared the dessert sampler. Everything was well presented and delightful. Our server recommended a nice jazz club across the street to finish off a great evening.

We have been coming to Truluck's for 15 years and this was the first time we were disappointed with the quality of the meal. I ventured off my typical menu selection and had a steak. I know, a steak at a seafood restaurant? Probably my fault but the $ 52 ribeye was about 3/4" thick and overcooked. My wife's seabass was fishy and we had to send back our escargot as it was ice cold when it arrived at the table. All in all we spent $ 300+ and felt very underwhelmed with the quality of the food. The venue and new upstairs area is beautiful but probably too much seating for the kitchen to handle. We will try again next time in Austin but miss the Truluck's experience of old.

Excellent service from the moment we walked in the door! We were celebrating 2 birthdays and nearly every staff member that passed us made sure to stop and say happy birthday to us, including the manager. Food was amazing as always! Great views of downtown Austin and perfect live music. Pricy but worth every penny!

I ordered the grilled salmon and parmesan mashed potatos - a delicious and excellent meal. My husband ordered the bone-in beef filet and asked for it to be prepared "medium". But it arrived at the table "rare" - a total surprise to us that the kitchen would make such an error. It was corrected quickly though, and the manager did apologize.

Don't order the creamed spinach unless you like it pureed, like baby food.

Our server was not interested in us at all - first she brought the wrong beer to our table, then seemed unconcerned about the steak cooking error.

On a positive note, we did enjoy the 2nd floor dining location with nice view of downtown Austin. Also, the live music that evening did add nicely to the ambiance.

From the moment we walked in, we knew it was going to be a magnificent experience. We were warmly greeted by the host who personally introduced himself to each of us. We told him we came early to sit in the bar as we had heard they had a marvelous happy hour. We were not disappointed. Many wonderful choices of appetizers and drinks - all half price. We chose the super chilled shrimp cocktail. The five jumbo shrimp with atomic cocktail sauce were delicious and plenty for the three of us. We spent about a half an hour enjoying our drinks and listening to some great live music. At the time of our reservation, they came and got us and escorted us upstairs to a bright, beautifully appointed dining room. As soon as we were seated, our two servers introduced themselves, told us the daily specials, and took drink orders. The menu was varied and descriptive with lots of wonderful choices. You can’t go wrong with any of the seafood dishes. We ordered salmon, sea bass, and swordfish. All were delicious but the sea bass was outstanding. It was truly the best I had ever had, and I order it all the time. The place was packed, but the noise level was good, and we were never rushed. We ate at several fine dine restaurants during our visit, and this was by far the best! Don’t miss this gem located in Austin’s downtown.

My husband and I went to Truluck’s because someone recommended it to us (Aidan, our tour guide on the Austin City Tour). We went there to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary. The staff was so friendly and our waiter, Josh, went out of his way to ensure our experience was great. We would definitely go there again. The food and service were phenomenal!

Anniversary dinner was awesome. Staff attentive but not intrusive, dinner (scallops, rib-eye, crab, pinot noir, Caesar salad, asparagus) delicious. Truluck's kindly provided a wonderful baked Alaska style cake for our anniversary (see photo). Upscale interior design, quiet enough to talk but could still hear live pianist/singer. Will go back soon - especially want to try their happy hour!
