We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and found Trulucks to be wonderful. We had a couple issues with the food (very spicy lobster bisque and too much parsley on the lobster tail) but the atmosphere and the attentiveness of the staff just can't be beat.

The staff, Patrick the Mgr., and our server, Phillip, were all fantastic. We were greeted with with friendliness and taken great care of right from the start until we departed.

The service, setting, cocktails, and food were all first class. Fresh & delicious.

We will definitely recommend Truluck's and a be returning "guests" as they made us feel.

Truluck's Downtown Austin always has a posh feel with a very professional wait staff and consistently excellent food. A great out on the town experience. We also think their bar is one of the most beautiful in town though the music live or piped in can sometimes be a little too loud and we have asked them to turn it down a time or two. Otherwise, a great choice for locals or out of towners who want an upscale dining experience.

One of my favorite restaurants when I visit Austin. Been here at least a dozen times in Austin over the last 7 years, also Dallas and Miami, and we had our rehearsal dinner here last year.

The manager is always so nice and attentive.

Last night was my worst experience. Some of the food was warm, the hash browns were undercooked, and most of all, our waiter was pushy and didn’t listen to what we asked. When I ordered for me and my wife, I was then ready to order sides for the table. Our waiter said “I’ll come back to that after I determine what everyone else ordered.” I said “no, I know what everyone at my table wants - we’ve already talked.” My wife and I love to share a salad and a bone in filet - same plate - we request it that way several times.
The sale came out split - I reminded him we wanted one plate. Again, he was pushy and acted like he was in control and said “yes, I decided it was easier for you so I to split it.”
He also treated his assistant waiter poorly. She was an extremely respectful and attentive woman.
I still left a $130 tip on a $670 bill which include a $110 bottle of champagne.
Very disappointed .

Both the food and service from the second we walked in the door were over the top fantastic. Everyone we encountered wished my husband a happy birthday and called him by name. The lobster bisque was the absolute best we've ever had, and we've had quite a few. Scallops were perfect. Really an all-around great dining experience.

I think that dining in can be one of the priciest in Austin now. Happy hour prices and food are why we love this place the most.

We celebrate our cheat day here every week. That amazing Carrot Cake makes 6 days of eating clean 100% worth it. We know the menu and the quality so well that we could tell they had a new dessert chef on Sunday. They promised that their regular dessert chef, who was on vacation, and their signature Carrot Cake would be back to normal soon. Can’t wait! Always great food and service.

I was in town on business but it coincided with our 24th wedding anniversary. Several local people I asked said that Truluck's was the place to go for a special meal. Our teenaged children accompanied us. Even for a fine dining establishment, it is exceptional. From a genuine, warm greeting by the host to the excellent service by the staff. We ordered a large variety of starters, seafood entrees, and dessert and all was simply perfection. Great and varied wine list and what our server suggested was a perfect pairing. Prices are very reasonable for such a fabulous experience - great value. It was a meal I will remember for a very long time and the next time I'm in Austin a meal at Truluck's will be at the top of the list.

Amazing food, amazing service, worth every penny. Will be going back, especially after finding out they fly in the seafood daily. Recommend splitting most entres for their size, but the staff was super accommodating when we asked.

It's the only restaurant in town that I felt underdressed and I dress fairly nice for Austin's standards.

We read the reviews for Truluck's and knew we had to try it. The food and service exceeded our expectations.
Our waitress, Calie. attended to our every need. The manager stopped by our table several times to make sure that our food and service were perfect! Calie surprised us with a special dessert at the end of the meal.
I will make sure I return to this restaurant on my next trip to Austin!
