My wife and I were in Austin over the weekend. Heard good things about Truluck's, so we decided to have dinner there on Saturday night. We did not have a reservation. The wait would have been about 45 minutes, but we decided to dine in the lounge area. The live music in the lounge influenced that decision. Our server was not one of the dinning room servers and she was OK, not great. The meal, however, was outstanding. My steak was done perfectly and the spinach side was also. My wife had the blackened redfish ponchartrain and it was wonderful. On our next visit, this is what I will order. We had read great reviews of their carrot cake, so we finished the meal with one to share. It is unbelievable. Don't miss the opportunity try this heavenly delight.

I was a little hesitant to try the stonecrabs here. I have only had them at Joe's in Miami. They were delicious. All their seafood is fresh and well executed. The deaserts are a little too big for a couple to share but delicious as well. Very good service.

It was good but I'm still looking for that great Texan steak. I ordered the All Natural Rib-eye 16oz -- a huge cut that was a bit difficult to finish so I hardly touched the sides. It lacked seasoning and was a tad overcooked for medium. For the appetizer, the Baja Ceviche was quite refreshing. I didn't try any of the dessert which is unusual for me since for me the dessert is the exclamation point of a dinner -- but I think I was just too tired.
The service was good though and the dirty grey goose martinis from the bar was quite good.

We managed to get a table late one evening after a very long day sightseeing and an early evening spent along 6th and West 4th Streets. Service was impeccable and the quality of the seafood and fish outstanding. The winelist was also good and the service attentive and friendly. Excellent choice for dinner in Austin
