We had a fairytale experience from start to finish. Warm greeting as we were directed up the stairs to a dazzling view of the city. Our server, Sean continued the magic with his wit and knowledge of the menu. I love swordfish, but rarely order it because it usually is misprepared. This was better than any prime steak. The stone crabs were as sweet as sugar. The creamed spinach and potato Hasselback completed the perfect meal. The wine paired so well. The desert tray was a visual marvel, but we were too full. A wonderful evening enhanced by the staff, especially Sean.

Food was top-notch! Great environment, noise level allowed everyone at our table to hear each other without any problem. Very attentive service. Sad they ran out of one of their specials before my son could order, but his alternative choice was just as tasty.

Best overall service we’ve had in a long time. The entire staff was extremely attentive from Andrew who first greated us, to the bartenders while we waited and our waiter.

The food was exceptional and we were thrilled with the choices.

The following day, we had a message from the restaurant thanking us for your visit and if we had any questions to let them know. This was our first time here and we will be back when visiting Austin again!

Thank you!

We came tonight for my 2 year anniversary and had an excellent experience. Food was fantastic . We had the Salmon Béarnaise and Filet Oscar Royale with the baked Alaska dessert . Everything was delicious. Service, presentation, and ambience was very good too. Some other reviews said it was pricey or overpriced, but we disagree, considering their generous portion sizes and quality of food and service.

My wife and I celebrated our 45 wedding anniversary on 1/6/18 and were surprised that so many of the restaurant´s staff came to us to congratulate us. We felt right at home. The food was fantastic and the piano bar music was very entertaining. The singers were very talented.
Thank´s for giving us a great experience on our milestone occasion.

Went for New Year's Eve early meal. Excellent service and delicious seafood and steak...the lobster tail was huge and portions were good size. Upstairs is lovely with a view of the city and sophisticated vibe while downstairs is lively and fun. We will be back!

This is an amazing establishment! The service was impeccable from the beginning to the end. Ryan, at the front immediately greeted us with a warm smile. Our server, Ian was on point! He made sure that we were well taken care of! He even met my sister downstairs when she stepped off the elevator. Now, that's gangsta!!! The food was out of this world. I will definitely return should I find myself in Austin again.

For stone crab it’s the best. Actually for seafood and steaks it’s the best. Awesome service. Next day follow up to make sure you had a great experience. They know how to operate a restaurant. Coffee and carrot cake a must. Monday night is all u can eat stone crab. That’s a great deal for the price. Great ambience too

Have lived in Austin for 10+ years and can't believe I never had been here before now. We booked the restaurant to take my Mom from SF who was visiting for her birthday. We were greeted by the hostess and seated immediately at a fabulous window-facing table which had celebratory confetti to mark Mom's birthday. Our server came right out and was so hospitable - you can tell she loves her job and the guests she meets. The dinner was remarkable - wonderful presentation and fresh and delicious! We all ate seafood in various dishes. The Sea Bass was incredible! Then the topper was Baked Alaskan dessert with my Mom's name and birthday wishes written onto the dish. Just could not have asked for a better venue to celebrate. And when my Mom left the restaurant she commented that Truluck's definitely gives a run for the money with SF restaurants. :) We'll definitely be back - and get the Crab Fried Rice!
