We recently visited the downtown Truluck's location and found it to be wonderful. Everything felt very personalized, from the initial greeting to the attention from our server to the food. it was a wonderful experience and the newly added second floor was beautiful. I recommend it!

The newly renovated Trulucks is perfect. From the minute you walk in the door, it is apparent they spared no expense in the renovation. The views from the second floor are fantastic. The food is the finest in town. The service five stars. Bravo Trulucks, and thanks for finally opening.

We had a work dinner here on our last evening in Austin. Our group was put into a room on the second floor. Normally, this would have been ok, but the tables in the room were not big enough for our party and we had very little room to move and eat so it was a bit of a crowded... More

...and the food is good too. They just might have the best quality seafood around. Great service. The happy hour menu as well as the regular menu frequently changes, but they keep the old favorites. Nice wine selection, though lacking on the by the glass options. All said, one of my favorite places in Austin, either downtown or Arboretum.

Overall a very good experience on this first visit to Trueluck's in Austin. We spent a little time at the bar while waiting on our table upstairs and were very well taken care of by the staff. The upstairs dining room is very well laid out and lit to provide what seems like a very intimate space at each of... More

The evening started well when I ordered a sidecar - no sugar on rim and a whole lemon so I could squeeze into the drink (I like sour not sweet). The waiter offered to make the drink to my taste - he did and it was perfect. Same waiter also made sure there was a lemon twist in my espresso... More

They fly their seafood in fresh daily and it was so incredibly good. The service is supurb. Just amazing and you can't miss out on this restaurant if you are in Austin. Will hit the pocketbook a bit though.

By almost all measures the remodeling of this Truluck's location has resulted in spectacular dining and bar spaces. The view from the upstairs dining area of downtown is wonderful. The dining area is large but well laid out with excellent acoustics. It is possible to hear the piano man upstairs and downstairs, but the volume is just right. The management... More

I was in Austin for business meetings and was referred to the downtown Truluck's location. What a quaint, yet beautifully-designed property. The piano bar reeked of phenomenal talent, and the guests clearly appreciated the special ambiance. I thoroughly enjoyed the miso sea bass and mushrooms, but the lobster bisque is something I need in my life everyday. :) The next... More

Every once in awhile you find a restaurant that makes your heart sing. Truluck's is this place. Beautiful ambiance, nice views of Austin's downtown bustle, gracious, friendly and professional service, and divine food. Worth every penny. Bo was our server for the evening and took great care of us from beginning to end. Attentive service from the host to the... More
