Celebrated by son's 18th birthday - service was impeccable, just enough attention by the waitstaff; highly recommend the chocolate bag for dessert; half price wine bottles on Wednesdays is a great deal, too.

After a shopping extravanza the wife and I opted for an early dinner and stopped in Trulucks in the Arboretum. We were greeted and seated by Louis the Associate Manager. Then started a re-adventure back at this restaurant Ryan our server was very good and answered all our questions. The Blackened Redfish Pontchartrain seemed like it was prepared in New... More

Everything about Truluck's is superior. The decor, the food, the service, the location could not be more perfect; even down to the details in the men's room. Growing up in Houston I miss the seafood and compare all seafood to living in Houston. (There is a Truluck's there as we'll). My wife and I were in Austin for a conference... More

If you are travelling from Dallas to San Antonio this restaurant is a good stop over in Austin, Texas. Tried the red tuna and loved it. My friends and I were completed satisfied.

Our favorites are the cioppino and the trout. They are well known for their stone crabs but we prefer other types of seafood. Our only criticism of the restaurant is that we have found the veggie sides to be below par.

We were a part of a very large group and the steak was excellent the stone crabs were good and the shrimp appetizer was very average. This was a very good restaurant but nothing special to make it excellent. Of course it could be that we were in a very large group and that may be why dinner took so... More

We had the most amazing experience last night at Truluck's. I worked all day yesterday and came home to my boyfriend and dog in a tuxedo. After proposing to me, we decided to go to Truluck's for dinner. We did not have a reservation so we sat at the piano bar. Upon finding out about our engagement, the manager came... More

My Wife and I are from Austin and do visit other new restaurants and or restaurants that have been sold with the same menus. We see these restaurants come and go. But one restaurant that offers Superb Service,... More

We live in Austin. We don't get very many date nights. But when we do, we like to eat at nice places. We've tried so many fine dining restaurants around town, and have always walked away with the "we shoulda gone to Trulucks" feeling. This weekend, Truluck's did not let us down. We were seated right away. The atmosphere is... More

For my son-in-laws birthday, my daughter threw a private party for him with friends and family in the Capri Room. The service and food was OUTSTANDING. Trueluck's is one of the few places where we can find South African Lobster. The best. Maine lobster pales in comparison. And their crab cakes rival G&M in Baltimore. My son-in-law had a happy...
