Enjoyable dinner - nice salad, great wine list, medium stone crab available, tasty filet, and the carrot cake ended the night nicely!

There are TWO Truluck's in Austin! It's not really a secret but just one of those things Tripadvisor overlooked. Don't you overlook this hidden gem. The location is so easy to reach from anywhere in the Austin area. Near Loop 360 and Hi way 183. The best of the two in my opinion. The menu is remarkable and skillfully articulated... More

Went here on business with a group of four. I had the miso glazed seabass that was simply fantastic. The prices were not cheap but also not as high as other similarly situated steak/fish restaurants and I was able to have wine and my entree for under $50. Wine selection is quite good. Gluten free options were available and the... More

I have had the impression for many years that American fare was on a par with the misconception of British food. The proof about how wrong this concept is is Truluck's. Wonderful. There were 3 of us and i'll just concentrate on what i had; a 7oz steak with crab macaroni cheese. Woa. The steak? Tender, perfectly seasoned and cooked.... More

Maybe the best service I have seen - the staff was engaging and treated us like we were friends having dinner at their house. Dessert was the best part of our meal - chocolate cake was beat by the carrot cake that was beat by the cheesecake. All were amazing and make sure you leave room. Or maybe just start... More

I dine at the Truluck's downtown 2-3 times a month. The service and food are always excellent. I normally don't stray too far from my favorites though. For starters I get either the crab cakes or the seared Ahi tuna entree without the mashed potatoes. For the the main course I enjoy the sea scallops when they have them and... More

I was a guest at a private function - 40 pax. The menu had been preselected as had the wine. It was very enjoyable from start to finish with nothing negative to note. I would return.

The food here is excellent and so was the service. We started off with the caviar which was great. My wife had the Alaskan King Crab legs which the slice the shells so it is not any work to get to the meat. I had a bone in filet which was cooked to perfection. Finished it all off with their...
