What can you say about a perfect meal with perfect service. We were lucky enough to get both kids to join us for dinner, and these days we really want to enjoy each other when we get together. The food was excellent and the service it always a great refreshing experience. Yes, it is expensive, but for the memories you... More

I dined at Trulucks DT Austin last night with a friend. When I reserved the table through open table I requested in the comments that I would like the corner "premium" table upstairs. I never thought we would actually get it. Sure enough we did. Brenner Brown was our server - his service was top notch. Made great recommendations and... More

I have had mainly really nice visits to Truluck's in both Dallas and Austin, but the most recent visit reminded me why I liked the place. Old friend visiting and we ate at the bar and had perfect service and the food was simply outstanding. I will return again soon.

I took my wife here for our anniversary and they did nothing but make it that much better. The service and food were outstanding. The Florida Stone Crab Claws were excellent they are served chilled and I don't really care for cold crab. We ordered the Escargot and Lobster Bisque both of which I highly recommend, as well as the... More

It is rare to get such a wonderful combination of ambiance, good service at a relaxed pace and great food. We arrived early to enjoy the piano bar - the singing was top class and at a volume that still allowed for conversation. The restaurant has a romantic feel but would also work for business dinners. The tables were not... More

Good seafood entrees & soups, also a very good attention from the waiters. Their speciality is the fish do not order steak if you want the best experience. Overall a nice place but expensive.

First of all, the service is always impeccable. BUT the food on New Years Eve was to die for! We had escargot and beef tartare followed with lobster bisque and prime filet turf and surf. YOU MUST TRY the crème brulee!!!! All diners were served delicious champagne immediately upon being seated and the wine list was perfectly suitable for our... More

We just stumbled across this place on Christmas Eve looking for a place to eat. Many places were closed so we just took a chance on trulucks, it was awesome. Everybody sitting around the bar and working the bar area were a joy to be around. The guy they had playing the piano was amazing. He was so good I... More
