Very friendly staff, food was wonderful! Only negative side was 1 - it was almost too fast of service, we were in& out in under an hour & had only about 5 minutes between courses. And we got the worst table in the whole plsce (way in back by swinging kitchen door) and it is way too dark in there. Will still go back again!
Really enjoyed the service and the food. Was exceptional and impressed 4 new patrons that have never been and want to come back.
Great place for Anniversary! Service was incredible and the food was delicious.
Looking forward to the next special occasion.
Excellent service! Thank you Andrew! Food was amazing as always!
Like a private club, the dark interior afforded us a secluded experience. A compact menu with very interesting preparations, it was hard to choose. The steaks sounded great, but this is a Crab House, so we stayed on the seafood side. Sea Bass was sensational and the Ahi was generous and perfectly cooked. Good by-the-glass wine selection. A special occasion place that was expensive but worth it.
I brought my team here for dinner after a week of meetings. What a great restaurant! Food and service was outstanding and the live music at just the right volume added to the ambience. This is a great venue.
Memorable anniversary dinner! Australian Lobster Tail with crab cake and the Seabass dinners were both ample and delicious. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. The complimentary anniversary dessert capped off the perfect evening! Thank you Trulucks!
We had great experience! Happy hour in the bar had good deals. Dinner was outstanding. I had a filet that was melt in your mouth good! Carrot Cake was a big hit. Live Music in the bar too that was very good.
Enjoyed our dinner. Service was impeccable. Sat outside next to firepit. Weather was perfect. Seabass and swordfish was excellent. The only reason I did not rate the food excellent was because the crabfried rice was not quite as tasty as I was expecting; it was very good though. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.
Great meal. Our Server Derek was awesome. Went for my wife's birthday. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely delicious and comfortable
Everything was great. The food, the service, the complimentary baked alaska because we were celebrating our engagement were all really good. The price tag was too high for a regular visit but for a special occasion it fit perfectly.
On vacation with friends celebrating our anniversary. Made the reservation the same day and the hostess could not be any more accommodating. Moved our reservation up and then had a couple of surprises for us - - flowers on the table and complimentary baked Alaska for dessert. The service was wonderful and food delicious. A wonderful anniversary dinner!!
We had an awesome dinner and time here. Shout out to Mat our waiter who took great care of us and exceeded our expectations. My girlfriends steak was a little over cooked and not only did they replace it with how she wanted it but they also took it off the bill!!! Big plus in my books! We'll be dinning here again.
Truluck's La Jolla has been an elegant, but low pressure select dining spot for me and my wife for the past 10 years. Food is always carefully prepared, to order, and DELICIOUS, service is polite, but not stiff, laid back but very courteous, making for a low-pressure, high-end dining experience, with unbelievable desserts!
Great Time! PJ provided great and responsive service, will definitely request him in the future. The seafood was on point!!!!
Outstanding on all levels. Food, service, the entire staff, truly awesome!
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner featuring the special on King Crab Legs and they were magnificent! Our waiter was very attentive and it was a great evening
Another wonderful dinner at Truluck’s. It is our go-to place for great steaks and crab! Service is always phenomenal - we love P.J, he is full of energy and super friendly!!
Can’t wait until our next visit!
Sammy was our waiter, he is one of the best! Always enjoy Truluck's
Be aware that on a Tuesday night the ambiance was more like a club than a restaurant, with a singing piano player who was loud and whose musicality was average.
Service was professional but not outstanding. Fodd was good but not great.
As always we had an amazing experience Sammy is by far the absolute best!!!
The food was excellent, the service was great, a very wide range of wines, live piano and singer but was not over the top loud. You could care on a conversation in a normal tone of voice. Will go back again. The baked Alaska was superb, will try a different dessert next visit.
We come here often as the food is excellent, as well as the service!
The place and the food were great. The server was too busy serving too many tables and we felt that affected our enjoyment of the dinner and under served.
Excellent quality and service. Every item on the menu is decadent and delicious. We enjoyed the fresh Florida Stone Crab claws and the chefs recommended special for dinner. The miso glazed sea bass is a must! Our server was very courteous & provided meaningful suggestions, conversation and made the evening a delight. They topped off the evening with an En Fuego dessert that was a perfect ending.
Excellent all around!!!! We loved the atmosphere and the food is wonderful. We always feel special when we dine at this restaurant. We have never had a bad experience
Excellent food and service. A bit pricey--but everything turned out just as wonderfully as our waiter described.
Great Mel, as usual. Claws good, fresh, tasty, delicious.
It was truly one of the best dining experience of our lives and we have been truly blessed to eat at fine dining locations around the world. The seafood was the best tasting we have ever had. The service was outstanding.
Absolutely delicious and impeccable service! Noise was a little loud but the only issue.
Extremely disappointed that there was no stone crab!!!! We came from the Central Valley to have stone crab!
We get there and they tell us they are out of stone crabs completely. That is the only reason we came I almost walked out except that we had already ordered cocktails so it was mortifying there should’ve been a sign out front I would’ve canceled and not gone there I love the weather though
The waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable and very helpful with suggestions. We had the Oysters Rockefeller to start, a flawless Caesar and an excellent wedge salad, followed by seared sea scallops and the prime NY strip. Each item was excellent, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The”Dynamite” topping on the strip steak was amazing. We will come back every time we return to San Diego.
All you can eat Florida Stone Crabs were finally available and well worth the wait.
The filet mignon was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had! My husband has the all you can eat Stone crab claws. It is his favorite Resturant
Good but overpriced.
Don’t let the hostess seat you in the worst table! The place was empty when we arrived and after complaining she told us that all the other tables (20) were reserved.
The waiter was very nice.
Very good date place or for special occasion
Great dinner experience. Good selection and everything we tried was delicious. Excellent service, PJ ( our server) was delightful as he explained all of the house specialties. Will definitely try to go back again.
The food and service were exceptional and amazing. The waiter was attentive, responsive and engaging.
