Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - Austin Downtown Ratings and Reviews
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.
Outstanding service. The staff were exceptionally attentive and provided friendly, but not familiar, service. The only service hiccup was that we were served soup without soup spoons to eat it with.
Food was just average but the prices were very high. Our salad was served with a horseradish dressing. It tasted like wet lettuce with no flavor and we sent it back. The Snow Crab claws were cracked so poorly that almost each bite included pieces of crab shell. It was not a special experience food-wise.
We had a great dinner on Saturday night. The service was amazing. Ian took care of every last detail. The food was very tasty. Shell fish platter for starters was awesome; especially the crab. The second floor has been remodeled and just a great place to dine with friends or you and your spouse. I will definitely go back!
A truly fabulous restaurant great food, wine choices, attentive and knowledgeable server. They even follow up by phone the next day to ask how your Restaurant experience was! I highly recommend this restaurant and I look forward to going there again when I return to Austin
Everyone was amazing! Wanyed somewhere nice and elegent to have dinner for our wedding anniversary. I asked for a "table with a view" as you can see beautiful windows in the building. They went above and beyond... We had not only a view, but in a private booth as well! They placed rose pedals on our table, which was a very sweet surprise. Riley was a hospitable host, RJ (our waiter) was fantastic. Very attentive without hovering.. Food was excellent, ambiance romantic. IT WAS PERFECT! Thank You Trulucks for makong our eveni g special!
We went here with a last minute reservation for my birthday while visiting Austin. Everything was wonderful. The service, the wine list and the steak and sea food. Lovely live jazz music playing in the background. I felt truly special. And then they brought out this wonderful s'mores like flaming dessert with a personalized birthday message. Very nice. We found out there is one of these restaurants in La Jolla and we will be making a visit there when we can.
We love the service and food at Trulucks! They remind us every time that exceptional dining experiences still exist as all staff are knowledgeable and willing to go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time dining with them. Looking forward to our next meal there soon!
Upon making my reservation I noted it was my boyfriends birthday. Everyone from the hostess to our server wished him a happy one. It was very thoughtful. Our table was romantic and cozy. The tuna tartar was not a favorite of mine and my boyfriend wasn't crazy about the creamed corn so our server kindly removed those items from the bill. And sent out a gorgeous Crete brûlée w "happy birthday rob" written in chocolate. While our service was very good, our server was a little over attentive. We decided we'd rather over than under, but would've liked a tiny bit more privacy while discussing some sensitive material. The wine list was great. We went with the 2012 duck horn Cabernet. The steak was delicious and prepared perfectly. They even called the next day to make sure we had a good time. We will definitely be back when visiting Austin!!
We have been to the Naples and Boca Raton in FL and Austin may be the best of the three. They even called the next day to see if we were happy. They encouraged us to have a drink at the bar first for happy hour half pricing even through our table was ready and waiting. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and the south African lobster tail was to die for. It's 5 star all the way!
Our memorable exepeince started from the time we were greeted by the receptionist. It was immediate and often. We were warmly greeted and immediately seated. The menu was thourougly explained as the options were many. The food presentation was exceptional and the servings were comparable with the pricing. A great place for special occasions and daily dining. I would highly recommend this restaurant to family friends and associates. Extremely pleased everytime you dine there.
