We had a reservation and were promptly seated. Our waitress was excellent and attentive. Steaks and seafood are quite pricey but in line with other similar high-end restaurants. Great place for business dinner or romantic special occasion. The bar during happy hour is a must.

a bottle of the rare Rochioli Sauvignon Blanc with Mooky Blue Maine oysters and an order of the large stone crab claws - I was on top of the world.

Only downside - no more of the true San Francisco sourdough bread - they make fresh yeast rolls now. Miss that sourdough.

Truluck’s truly went above and beyond. We were celebrating our wedding day and it was the best dining experience I’ve had by far. They think of everything and everyone was so happy for us. They even called the next day to wish us congrats again and check that everything was perfect. And it was!

Very disappointed. Cold Celebration Appetizer was flavorless. My husband's bone in filet was very chewy and lacked flavor. The cajun redfish was was disappointing, probably the worst I have ever had. The best food item was the hash browns, very sad. They forgot it was my husband's birthday after confirming over the phone they would bring a birthday dessert. $400 down the drain, will never go back.

Amazing Experience. The service was outstanding. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and the staff made it an amazing experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my Turf & Surf option and my husband loved his Prime Ultimate Rib eye. Our waitress Jenny brought out a Baked Alaska and set it on fire for his birthday cake. We will be definitely going back again.

Quite possibly the finest Alaskan king crab I’ve ever eaten in my life! Oh, and by the way, everything else was awesome, expertly prepared, and served professionally, attentively and enthusiastically. What a wonderful place for a flawless dining experience, and a joyous family event, date night or celebration of life!

Thanks Truluck’s!

Great service and experience for our anniversary dinner. Greeted and recognized as soon as we walked in the door. Everyone seemed to know it was our anniversary. Rose pedals on the table were a nice touch as well. The food was good, lobster tail was one of the best I've had, but wasn't blown away with the filet. Complimentary dessert topped off the evening well.

Outstanding service for family of four outing, special occasion. Started with shrimp cocktail which was excellent, kids loved the dry ice effect. We each got a different main entree dish. Unfortunately I found a long black hair in my starter salad which was unpleasant and made rest of experience much less enjoyable for me. Hubby got the sesame seared tuna, which was the favorite. Chocolate bag desert was yummy (and ginormous) but couldn’t eat bottom 1/3 as it was too hard and had to be hammered to pieces in the kitchen. Parking in lot across street was $18 - better to valet at front door for $12. Will probably find another place to try next time.

Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service. From the moment we walked in the door to the follow up call the next day, the Truluck staff outshines others with quality service. The atmosphere is electric, and music was a special added treat. Delicious menu, and lovely view of the city. Will definitely return during our next trip to Austin.

Enjoyed dinner. The lump crab cakes and seafood coronation were delicious. Steak with Gorgonzola amazing.

We missed the goat cheese trio that was on previous menu and felt the sauce served with steak was not needed and lowered overall appearance of plate. We chose not to use it as it had too much of a ketchup taste.

Trulucks is always a lovely venue, beautiful with a very classy feel. This was early (6) on a Sat evening.
Unfortunately, the food was very mediocre this time. Service was great until we told them the Halibut was cold and it all turned downhill from there. Sad, but I will probably spend my money elsewhere next time and not take the chance when having such an expensive meal.

Fantastic restaurant! We ate the crab cakes for an app, overflowing with crab meat, no fillers, great sauce. Lobster bisque soup delicious. Splurged on the 9oz S African lobster tail, scallops were cooked to perfection. Surprise of the night was the cauliflower side! Wow, it was hard to describe but had an Asian sweet and sour/tangy sauce that was crisped. We had baked Alaska for dessert. We rolled out of the restaurant but it was so worth trying everything! Opiparus meal

I have been to Trulucks multiple times but they have made some changes to some of their staples for what appears to be cost savings. Just wasn't the same.

Extremely friendly staff, the service is 5 stars and so is the food. Jenny was our server. We had her before and she always goes out of her way to make our stay memorable. The food was amazing! The only tough thing about the downtown location is parking is very limited. I paid to park down the street, but I think the valet parking would have been cheaper. Thanks to every who made it a lovely night!
