Service 10; Food 6.

First, the restaurant is a marvelous experience. We were greeted warmly, the MD saw it was an anniversary dinner, and this was communicated to our server as well. Harley is an excellent server. Atmosphere befits a top-rated restaurant. Austin is replete with foodies from around the world; standards and expectations are high. Piano soloist is throughout the restaurant, in a good and welcome way. Energy is well above average and Truluck's is NOT noisy.

Regrettably, the kitchen's product failed to meet our expectations. I returned my Lobster Bisque as bland. It is a very rich preparation but, without real character and distinctive taste, it was not worth the calories. Service/presentation was excellent; the product fell short. I skipped the appetizer course.

My partner ordered the stone crab entree--8 medium claws. Here, our standard is Joe's in South Beach. Truluck's comes close with taste and freshness. There's a but: Believe it or not the claws were over cracked. The meat was easy to get to, but tiny bits of shell accompanied each bite. This doesn't happen at Joe's and many South Florida wannabes.

My Redfish Ponchatrain was just OK. What looked like a remoulade sauce wasn't. Not sure what it was. As sides, we had Steakhouse Hash Browns, which disappointed. Large chunks of potato suggested Steakhouse Fries. The "cake" was topped with sour cream. Had we enjoyed the hash browns, we would have requested a serving without the topping.

The next side was Crab Fried Rice. It went back, as it could not hold a candle to the wonderful dish of the same name we had a Eddie V's two evenings earlier. The rice stuck together and was overwhelmed with mushrooms. No opportunity for the delicate flavors to come through. The sautéed spinach was basic; nothing special like Eddie V's product.

The mini-baked Alaska complementary anniversary plate was nice, but not all that enjoyable. Coffee ice cream? Our standard here is Sardi's. Now THAT'S Baked Alaska.

We will make at least one more visit to Eddie V's, and try out some of the other Trip Advisor top-rated restaurants in Austin.

Gourdough's

Reviewed By alltraveln0w0rk - Chicago, Illinois

Grabbed the Naughty and Nice. It was both very tasty and the most money I've ever spent on a single donut. Tasted just like cinnamon sugar toast. Worth a trip for the great tasting novelty of fancy doughnuts but not a place you'd grab a dozen to take to the folks at work.

Eddie V's Prime Seafood

If you want seafood, the buzz in town is Eddie V's Edgewater Grille. The Gulf Coast menu features lots of seafood - oysters, gulf snapper, fresh tuna, lobster, plus great prime steaks and chops. Expect a hip and high energy dining experience. Savor classic seafood starters like oysters on the half shell, fried coldwater baby lobster tail, and famous All Lump Crab Cakes. The extensive wine list features over 150 selections.

Reviewed By Kevin W - Katy, Texas, United States

In town for a conference and friend and I met there first night. We sat in bar so we could hear the jazz music - great band just right level of music such that we could still talk. We had fish tacos as an appetizer...been years but remember they are so good! We shared a caesar and I had Lemon Sol and my friend had an 8 oz. steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The service was good. My only complaint is that it is very crowded in there. I felt like we were in on conversations on both sides of us.

Micklethwait Craft Meats

Reviewed By KendraDawnRN - Houston, Texas

My goodness! I was at a vintage store and the employees overheard me talking about being hungry. They told me about Micklethwait. My niece and I went there and had brisket sandwiches. It was wonderful! I haven't had great BBQ since I've moved to Houston. This place is the real deal. The meat was cooked to perfection. It was tender, flavorful, smokey, and just delicious. Their BBQ sauce is vinegar based but you don't need it. I tasted it just because. I may have to go back just to taste more meat. It's a must try while in Austin. And the crew is super nice!

Amy's Ice Cream

Reviewed By BarbBronder - Boston, Massachusetts

The Mexican vanilla is "All That". I agree with the people watching aspect as well. Locals and tourist all stop for a unique ice cream experience. I'd call it "lunch" though you might think of it more as "snack". Depends how seriously you take ice cream.

Uchi

Reviewed By Shaun B - Danbury, Connecticut, United States

This was amazing Asian food and the service was perfect. We didn’t know what to order from the menu so the waitress recommended everything. Everything single dish we had was flavorful. Tastes I hadn’t experienced before. Good luck getting in though unless you reserve way in advance. I reserved months in advance and didn’t have a problem.

Franklin Barbecue

Reviewed By DocSnarky - Burbank, California

I really did believe that Franklin was going fall short of my expectations! I figured that there was no way on earth a BBQ joint, (with a 4 hour wait), could EVER live up to the hype, particularly with so many other great BBQ restaurants around. I was actually hoping that it would just be good BBQ so I could debunk the myth. With really good BBQ around like Salt Lick, Stubbs, Cooper’s, etc., etc. (without the lines), there was no way Franklin was going to be worth the wait! Nothing could justify those lines! That said, as impossible as it sounds, it was even better than the rave reviews suggested!! There’s a reason Franklin is number 1 on most every list of best BBQ!! It is the best BBQ EVER!!!!!! Almost otherworldly!! I don’t know Aaron Franklin, but while eating the amazing brisket, I was actually reminded of the Robert Johnson myth. Who knows?!? Anyway, I won’t be debunking the Franklin myth. In fact, I’ll be standing in that line again next time I’m in Austin to have more!!

True Food Kitchen

Reviewed By Timothy T - Houston, Texas

Located only a walking distance from the Capitol, True Foods offers a great selection of diverse, healthy foods for all to enjoy. The restaurant here is fairly large, so a reservation is not necessary but I wish one could reserve a parking lot - it was not easy to find! The service was a little bit slow, but it may have been due to the large number of customers that day. The food was excellent; it was a pleasure to eat. Overall, I felt it was pricey for the smaller portions, but nonetheless I definitely recommend whenever visiting Austin!

The food was on par with other local outlets, but the price for the tacos is ridiculous. This is not a spectacular restaurant by any means and is not deserving of the prices they request.

Stopped in after catching a little music at the Continental Club across the street. Expect to wait on line but it does move quick. Sat at the table and waited a little while for the burgers to be delivered. Both burgers were excellent. Fries were okay.
