We love going there to enjoy the atmosphere in the bar, the piano, and of course the great food. Really top shelf all around.

Truluck's is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Austin, with food to match. If you visited the old Truluck's (before it was renovated) you will be very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is sophisticated, yet friendly. The wait staff is attentive and helpful. But, the best part of an evening at Truluck's is the food. No matter whether you order... More

This place is okay but a bit pretentious for my taste. Had drinks and appetizers here last night. Would not go back.

This place is consistently good! Valet parking available for convenience, welcoming staff and delicious food. Whether you're going for drinks & apps at the bar or a special evening in the restaurant you'll love the live music, cooked to perfection steaks and seafood and don't forget to order Jack's Bag for dessert!

The restaurant is very fancy (with a dress code), which we didn't know, but they let us in anyhow. Food was delicious (steak, trout and tofu...all winners) and the wait staff was excellent. They had live music which was great. We'd eat there again in a second!

If you are looking for a fine dining experience look no further. We were greeted by very friendly staff taken to our table and immediately greeted by our waiter who is the best in the business. The food was absolutely wonderful. My wife wasn't sure which wine she wanted so the waiter brought her a couple tastes. We left saying... More

I've lived in Austin 8 years and hadn't been to Truluck's because I always thought of it too late to be able to reserve a table. It was Monday night date night and, this time, we planned ahead. First of all, the gentleman who led us to our table noticed a table with talkative children and quickly changed gears, sending... More

I've been everywhere and experienced the greatest restaurants imaginable. Tonight I had the greatest customer service experience I've ever encountered. First off, Truluck's is a beautiful place. Great music playing. I sat in the bar since I was by myself. Fabulous array of appetizers. I've been on a very successful diet for the last 3 weeks but I threw caution... More

Really, really like their happy hour! Great drinks, and service, along with some good munchies. Wait staff are eager to please and got me a handful of bleu cheese stuffed olives to go along with my martini. Yum!
