We have eaten at Truluck's before but this was our first time at the downtown location. For anyone reading that doesn't know, the restaurant is business casual. We made reservations and arrived a little early and were seated immediately. Only issue I guess we had was that we couldn't make reservations until 9:15. A couple walked in right ahead of... More

Enjoyed a meal at the bar during SXSW. The service was outstanding by every server that interacted with us. The singer and pianist were incredible that were playing that night. She had a beautiful voice. Unfortunately, we were there almost two hours because they forgot to place our order. Because we were talking and having fun we finally realized we... More

My wife made reservations for dinner after a play downtown. This was our night out, without the kids. The location and view were great. We arrived at opening and it was obvious that they were still getting ready (no bread delivered for 30 minutes, no review of seafood platter options (that we saw others receive 30 mins later), waiters still...

Ws in Austin for sxsw and was looking for a great seafood meal. Because it was so busy we sat in the bar area at one of the high tops. The ambiance was great and the service attentive. I had the swordfish and mashed potatoes and my daughter had the sea bass. Both were excellent pieces of fish, as you... More

Service is excellent, but food is not. Seafood was not fresh, does not taste good at all. Not worth the price. Huge disappointment!

Oysters are fresh, on the half shell start a great meal experience. The crab claws are juicy white meat with a great natural taste. No heavy salt or seasonings to mask.This is fresh seafood, enjoy it naturally.

The food is excellent and the wine list long but truly delightful. The service was fantastic, and when they learned it was our anniversary, served us a complimentary dessert and cordial to go with it. Lovely and made the evening quite memorable.

Truluck's has true service and ambiance that is un-pretentious, but the best I have experienced in downtown Austin. I recommend the redfish.
