    What a great way to celebrate our son’s 16th birthday! The food and service were impeccable! Our waiter Deoine offered many wonderful suggestions. The cocktails were delicious and the baked Alaska was out of this world! Can’t wait to go back for date night!

    The cocktails are some of the best I’ve had in Austin! Fabian had recommended a limited time cocktail made for the eclipse and it was phenomenal. We came for happy hour which is definitely one of the best in the city. Dinner and dessert did not disappoint as we brought friends to celebrate a birthday. Everyone we have brought it blown by everything Trulucks has to offer. If you love great food and drinks this restaurant you must try!

    So this was the best food we ate while we were in Austin. Stayed for 5 days… first day was even a steakhouse (won’t name them because they were great too), but the miso sea bass was AMAZING. Great service and nice atmosphere too. Will definitely come back if we’re in Austin!

    Excellent food - crab claws are off the charts and loved the fact that you could order petit versions of dishes, such as the Miso glazed sea bass, which was absolutely wonderful. Nico, who was phenomenal, waited on us and halfway through informed that it was his first night on the floor…you would have never known. He was so personable, knowledgeable and helpful as we navigated options, etc. Great sense of humor and very respectful young gentleman…Don’t let Nico go! - Chris Jackson

    Appetizers were very good but steak was under cooked and way too much seasoning. I did let my waiter know and he was he was willing to have another one cooked. Chose not to and he did take it off the ticket. Would not go back.

    Food - high quality, fresh seafood. Can’t go wrong here. HOWEVER, as you will read below, there is definitely some room for improvement. Additionally, an issue was the noise level. With the incredibly high ceilings leading to an unpleasant echo. We struggled to hear each other. JUMBO LUMP CRAB CAKE dilled tartar sauce | $24 - meaty, flavorful and no need for tartar sauce ruining the delicate and sweet crab flavor. 4/5. Maybe a different sauce CAESAR SALAD* white anchovies, shaved pecorino, fresh lemon | $14 - ask for dressing on the side. Otherwise it will be drenched in Caesar dressing. A bit much for my palate. 3/5 REDFISH PONTCHARTRAIN shrimp, crawfish, piquant creole sauce, rice pilaf | Full: $39 - here, they delivered on taste and preparation. The presentation was unimpressive. But, it wins on execution of flavor! 5/5 FRESH FLORIDA STONE CRAB CLAW PLATTER chilled, pre-cracked, house specialty mustard sauce | Medium: $64 - 5/5 Period! HOUSE OLD FASHIONED bourbon, spiced orange syrup, angostura, orange bitters | $16.5 - nice finish to the night. 5/5.

    From the time we were greeted at the door everyone was friendly and accommodating. I had the scallops with a truffle risotto and it was delicious to say the least. I wanted to take my leftovers home but then rethought keeping seafood was a good idea. The cocktails the waiter recommended were spot on. I would definitely dine here again for a special occasion.

    We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and the entire experience was flawless. The food was excellent, the service and presentation was top notch, and the small details they included (rose petals at the table, the cute congratulations card signed by the staff, dessert, etc) really added the occasion. Go celebrate with the team at Trulucks downtown, they'll take care of you.

    We had a Thursday night dinner and what would have been a perfect dining experience but, unfortunately, the filet mignons were not of the quality one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. My son had the 8 oz filet with lobster tail and my husband had the Filet Flight and both of theirs, cooked as ordered (Medium-rare), were extremely fatty/tough/stringy. My son's filet char was also beyond char on one side (actually burnt, but he simply cut it off) but that didn't make up for the poor quality of the cut. Similar issue with my husband's... one of the 3 tiny filets on the flight was inedible as it was over half fat. Everything else we had was exceptional, as was the service. They just need to replace their butcher... or remove the filets from the menu. This is Texas and there's way too many places to get a good filet...
