The restaurant staff from the moment we walk in was great! Place is very nice, clean and very chic. Food was great (our rib eye was excellent) except for the fried crab rice (not recommended, weird seasoning) excellent wine list. Our waiter service was average, young boy very forgetful! Overall food experience was great, service is average not fantastic.

This may be the best restaurant I have ever had the chance to visit. The ambiance is so gorgeous. Try to sit upstairs so you can over look the city. The view is breathtaking. The hostess who greeted us was bubbly and sweet, in a genuine way. I instantly wanted her to be my friend. We were ushered up the... More

We showed up before dinner hour and without reservations, but were able to get seating in the bar area. The service was beyond slow (minus one star), but the food was as impeccable as ever. I had the crab cakes and green salad with feta and walnuts. My friend had the steak filet and garlic mashed potatoes. We both absolutely... More

I would give 10 stars if I could. From the start to the end they made sure everything went perfect. Great birthday meal with my family. We were able to make a reservation via Open Table. The valet calls in and let's them know you are coming. Our table had silver confetti on it, such a nice touch. Jason was... More

We were in Austin for a work conference for my husband and were looking last minute for a place to celebrate his birthday. With minimal notice, Truluck's treated us as though we were their most valued customer! From the host Andrew to the waitress Kathy to all the other staff who greeted us so warmly, the staff were extremely attentive... More

We had the sashimi and the soft shell crab lettuce wrap appetizers. The soft shell crab was excellent, the sashimi pretty average. We followed this with the miso sea bass which was OK and a NY strip steak which was very good. The only problem with the steak is they only serve mashed potatoes - I'm sorry but a Steak... More

We were lucky enough to go here for dinner on a Thursday night with a friend who lives locally in Austin. Walking distance from the Driskill Hotel, great hotel if you get the chance to stay there, and definitely worth the effort to go but make sure you book a little in advance if you can. From the live music... More

The occasion was our first anniversary. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, always greeted by staff, called by name, special table, great food and Lori took great care of us at the table. After dinner drink at the bar with live music capped our experience at Truluck's. Big thumbs up and recommend!

Fortunately for us, the place we had planned to have dinner the night we went to Truluck's is only open for breakfast and lunch. We had to find a different place for dinner and we wound up at Truluck's. BEST STEAK EVER! I ordered the 7 oz. Dynamite Fillet. I was certain it would not be enough and I would... More
