My husband and I went to Truluck’s to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. Truluck’s is my husband’s favorite restaurant. The food is truly outstanding - my husband never fails to start out with the shrimp cocktail (the prawns are huge)! We always have wonderful servers who enjoy what they do - Sammy took excellent care of us and made some great recommendations. Being a romantic, I love the atmosphere in Truluck’s - we sat in a private booth for two and there were red rose petals on the table! Our anniversary dinner was wonderful!!
As always, the food was prepared perfectly and tasted absolutely delicious, and the service was outstanding. I continue to go back to Trulucks for those reasons alone.
Great experience, wonderful flavors, beautiful plating, excellent service
Chick was an excellent server and helpful guide for an exceptional dinner/birthday. Have been to Trulucks 3 times over the last year and never have anything but wonderful experiences
Chic, our server was great. Like from the "old school." Table was the worse near the kitchen. Felt like maybe cause I booked on Open Table.
My fiancé and I visited San Diego and went to Truluck’s for dinner. It was AMAZING. Our waiter, Sam, was very attentive and even surprised us with dessert for my fiancé’s birthday! The food was very good, portion size was perfect. I had the filet mignon and my fiancé had the béarnaise salmon - both incredible and full of flavor. We both were extremely satisfied with our experience.
Everything was amazing and service was spectacular. I wish I lived close so that I could return!
Simply fantastic! I have been two times before in this awesome restaurant and always I have been well attempted and got satisfied
Our server Andrew was a true professional and made the dining experience memorable. His service was top notch.
Great food, great service.
This was our 6th visit to Trulucks in a one year time period. We love this restaurant because the food has been consistently good and we can count on a great overall experience when dining here. Food has been on point 6 for 6 and service has been outstanding on 5 of 6 visits which is good. Most recent waiter was a disappointment— he wasn’t awful, but just not very friendly and seemed like he was irritated. Will be back and hopefully won’t be in his section next time.
Amazing as always Sami could not be a better waiter
Great seafood, excellent service, PJ our server was very helpful, knowledgeable and very attentive
5-Star in every aspect. Amazing ambiance, service and culinary selection.
Very nice touch of offering a selection of citrus and cucumber to freshen your water. That's new since my last visit. Started with escargot and meatballs as our app. Would not recommend the meatballs, but the escargot was delish. Great garlic butter sauce and ample bread. I ordered the swordfish ponchatrain which was a tasty accompaniment to the slightly dry fish. Hubby got sea bass and was cooked perfectly. Too full for dessert.
This is my second to dine at Truluck. the first time experience was enjoyable, but this time the service is terrible. The waiter always pushed us to order the most expensive food and took our plates aways without even asking. It feels like he wanted us to eat as soon as possible and then our table would be available for the next guests. Such a bad experience.
Amazing food and great service
The food and the service was really good. Andrew our server was nice and kind with us. I definitely recommend Trulucks. It became one of my favorites restaurants in San Diego.
Excellent dinner again - enjoyed the all you can eat stone crab claws and especially the large claws available this time. Trulucks is our go to for date nights and special occasions!
As usual, the food was impeccable. I had Filet & Lobster & my wife had Crab legs while we split a Wedge Salad. The salad was super fresh & very tasty with just the right amount of Blue Cheese.
Live entertainment (Archie Thompson) was fantastic - he sang, played piano, and also played saxophone! But, it wasn't too loud or intrusive on our dinner...perfect in the background. Although we dined inside, there were tables with fire pits and a lovely atmosphere outside as well.
All-you-can-eat Florida crab was AMAZING, but it was cold and we were expecting it to be served warm/hot. So be forewarned. Still, the taste and quality and preparation were fantastic, and after a few bites, my hubby didn't mind it being cold at all!
Calamari appetizer and lobster bisque were delicious! Filet mignon (7 oz) was wonderful, as were the parmesan mashed potatoes. Corn chowder was scrumptious as well.
Very classy with linens and wine glasses, a selection of things to put in your water (cucumber, orange, lime, lemon, etc.) and an amazing dessert selection. We got carrot cake and chocolate cake and the portions were so huge, we were still eating them (take home) the next day. They were very rich, but I have to say that's the best carrot cake we've ever had!
Service was also impeccable. Waiter (Stuart) was very personable and attentive but not on top of us during the meal. We didn't have to ask for additional crab...when he saw my husband was getting toward the end of one plate, he'd bring and offer another.
Overall, I would recommend for any special occasion where you want to get dressed up and enjoy a romantic evening or a business function. (Sorry my photos aren't better!)
Absolutely amazing! Andrew was a phenomenal waiter. We had a great time and will definitely come back.
All the staff were welcoming and friendly.
Our waiter was knowledgeable and very helpful ,and the food was delicious.
We were visiting from out of town. It was a great way to end our stay.
Food was phenomenal as well as the service. Will definitely be back
Excellent service & food
Truluck’s is a great restaurant with outstanding, professional service. And the musical entertainment is top notch.
Shared stone crab and oysters for starters then entrees of sea bass scallops and king crab were all delicious. Server Brian was excellent as was assistance from GM Lee Carre.
It took 40 minutes from the time we ordered until our salads arrived. Not the steaks, just the salads. Too long.
Great experience as always...never lets you down. Service and food are top notch. One of the best places to eat in San Diego.
Muy recomendable las tenazas de cangrejo exquisitas , buenos vinos y el postre no se diga. Definitivamente lo recomendaría
Love this restaurant. Am going back again in two weeks. Try the chocolate bag for dessert
Wonderful restaurant, great ambiance, awesome food. Stone crabs were outstanding. The entire organization is top notch. Two weeks prior I got a call letting us know they were out of stone crabs on a particular Monday due to inclimate weather in Florida and I was extremely appreciative of the fact that they called to let me know so that we could reschedule. Now that's superior customer service !!
We love the restaurant. The service is great and the food is excellent!
Every time that we can, we find a good excuse to go there, we love it! It’s so nice that we can have this type of restaurants in San Diego, Ca
Great and good place. Love our sever very very friendly and he knows what he talking about the great food 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. Coming back for sure. This is our favorite place now to eat . Thank u so much we enjoyed that night.
What makes Truluck’s special is the cool ambiance and exceptional service. The wait staff are well trained and foodies. They enjoy what they are doing. Food is very good and consistent. The booths are cocoon-like and provide an intimate dining experience.
I usually dine at Truluck's 3-4 times a year when ever I come to town for business or pleasure.
Our server Chic / Charles was excellent. I had taken my 87 year old mother out, and there was an issue where the kitchen failed to cook her steak as ordered. She wasn't pleased, Chic agreed with her, and quickly addressed the situation. Thank you
Service was great. Great recommendations from our server, Bruce. All the seafood was fresh and delicious.
Truluck's Seafood Steak & Crab House rarely disappoints. This is the fourth location we've dined at and so far has never been a disappointment. Good food, well prepared. Well stocked bar and of course always a great 'Happy Hour' altho I did notice at La Jolla location the Happy Hour food menu didn't have a lot of choices. That being said, food, service, live entertainment, cocktails were excellent. Certainly will return when in the area.
Another outstanding experience at Trulucks! Excellent quality food and service! Not cheap, but worth every cent!
