The fresh fare and refined atmosphere that established Truluck's as an Austin dining staple have landed the posh spot on OpenTable's list of the 100 Best Restaurants in America for 2015.

To determine the winners, the restaurant reservation site analyzed more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 20,000 restaurants. Ten restaurants received numerical rankings of No. 1 through No. 10; the remaining 90 restaurants were not ranked.

Fine food and a chic space make Truluck's a glossy reprieve from the hustle and bustle of downtown. A hot spot for private parties and happy hours, it's also a favorite for intimate date nights. In fact, the swanky destination was even named one of OpenTable's most romantic restaurants in the country earlier this year. 

Reviewers give Truluck's top marks for food, service, and ambience. Diners tout the exceptional waitstaff and overall experience, and an impressive 98 percent of reviewers would recommend it to a friend. 

Four other Texas restaurants land on OpenTable's list: Rudy & Paco Restaurant & Bar in Galveston, Chez Nous French Restaurant in Humble, The French Room in Dallas, and Le Cep in Fort Worth.
