Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - Austin Downtown Ratings and Reviews
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!
The service was amazing! However
the food was bland and some of the dishes were not served hot. I bought a group of girls here for my Birthday and everyone was disappointed, I was so embarrassed I heard the food here is really good... Maybe it was just an off night.
Really another great experience at Trulucks. From making the reservation to the 3 changes of the reservation Andrew and the team at Trulucks were very helpful and accommodating.
Our waiter was super nice and gave tons of good recommendations. We ended up with the crab clusters which didn’t disappoint. The lobster mac n cheese was delicious as well.
The staff at Truluck's is second to none. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious. Been here a number of times and I am never disappointed. This time I was celebrating a big anniversary and they sat us at the best table in the house - had rose petals on the table and provided us with a wonderful desert. The food, atmosphere and service made for a perfect evening. I highly reccomend this restaurant. Side note - come early and have a drink at the bar - lively atomosphere - skilled bartenders .
First class all the way - I actually made my rez for the wrong day, realized it, then only late spots were open, showed up anyway and they were able to seat us w/ a fairly full house. Very appreciative. Top notch - you feel very special here. It was our anniversary and they put rose pedals on the table and a special desert that said "Happy Anniversary". I highly recommend.
Truluck’s has become our favorite go to place and for several years has served as our birthday and anniversary choice about all others. Riley, Andrew and Ryan always make you feel special and clearly appreciate your business by working hard to make every expectation reality. Pat was a fantastic waiter who knows his trade and makes certain you are well taken care of and leave satisfied.
A great experience, awesome food and expert and professional service. Always! We’re heading back in a couple of weeks and reservations are already confirmed. Looking forward to it.
You can feel the ambiance as soon as you enter; there was live music at the bar. The staff prepared the table as I noted in the reservation that it was my wife’s birthday. The meal and service did not disappoint. The food as well prepared and came out slow enough that we could enjoy each course. Our server, Jenny, made us feel welcome and enhanced our dining experience.
If you are celebrating an event our want to treat someone special, this is the place for you.
Outstanding food and service. We had our family Thanksgiving lunch and we had a great time. Our children ordered the Thanksgivings special menu. It was great quality. Drinks and wine were superb. My wife and me ordered from the menu. As expected everything was first class. This is my favorite restaurant in Austin.
This was my first visit to Truluck's and I thoroughly enjoyed it! First, the service was excellent. I was greeted with such kindness and enthusiasm, as if I were a celebrity. Second, my meal was absolutely delicious. I had the filet with garlic mashed potatoes, wedge salad, and finished with a crème brulee. Add a cabernet to that for a perfect meal. To top things off, I received a call the next day from the restaurant to see how my experience was the night before - never had that to happen! I will definitely visit again when I am back in Austin.
We were seated next to a table with a large group. Waiters had difficulty in keeping up their demands. Thus, we're pretty much left out in the cold. The same wait staff had one other table that was also large group. Being seated (table for 2) between two large groups is a definite red flag.
We loved Trulucks! We went there for our anniversary and we had the lobster bisque, oysters Rockefeller, and redfish and the food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter was attentive, but not annoying and he was great with getting plates out of the way. We also did not feel rushed and our courses came out in a timely manner. We will definitely be back for a future date night.
We were greeted immediately upon standing at the check-in table-Andrew was most gracious. Our table next to a window was excellent. Donald our waiter was very knowledgeable and gracious. Eli dropped by our table and introduced himself and left his car. I had an Excellent Chenin Blanc-not available many places. The Stone Crab were better than advertised. The gigantic King Crab leg was extremely tempting but I had been waiting for years to try your stone crab. Al in all the entire experience was fantastic and I can't wait for another special occasion.
Trulucks is one of my very favorite restaurants. The food is always A+. Wine menu is wonderful, Service is exceptional. Ambiance is nice and you can actually hear others at your table when speaking. The restaurants are consistent from city to city. It's perfect for so many occasions. Highly recommend.
