Came here to celebrate my husband’s birthday and we didn’t regret choosing this place. My husband wanted to eat seafood and yelp had good reviews for this place.
Food was great, friendly staff & perfect ambiance to celebrate a special occassion. Would definitely come back next time we’re
in La Jolla
Best restaurant ever! This restaurant exceeded my expectations in so many ways. The food was exquisite, wine list to die for and the service was the best I have ever had in a life time of eating out. My family was traveling through town and picked this place based on reviews and proximity to our hotel. We didn’t realized how upscale of a place this was and my husband and I brought our 5 and 7 year old sons and after a day at LEGO land and the beach we were definitely not looking our best. The hostesses were kind and welcoming regardless and Sam, our amazing waiter for the evening, was the epitome of exceptional service bending over backwards to accommodate our children and make them feel comfortable as well as ensure my husband and I got to enjoy a fine dining experience. From working out custom menus with the chefs, educating my children on seafood consumption techniques and patiently answering their every question I was astonished at his grace and kindness. This restaurant and its management and staff have my highest respect and adoration.
We had an amazing experience for our 2 year anniversary. Brian’s service was on point and he really made us feel special. We’ll definitely be coming back and recommend Truluck’s to our friends and family, encouraging them to request Brian as their server.
Sammy was a phenomenal waiter and outstanding wine steward. Delicious food and drink! Great music and ambiance.
Every time we go to San Diego we put Truluck's on our must do list and it has never disappointed. We just love it!
The food and the service were great. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of celebrating our wedding anniversary at Truluck’s.
Excellent service and the stone crabs were delicious. Overall to notch experience.
We went for my Wife's Birthday. From the moment we walked in we were treated like we were the most important couple dinning there that night. We had a Shrimp Cocktail, Oysters on the half shell, a Bowl of Lobster bisque and the Premium King Crab leg and a bottle of our favorite wine. The crab leg was 1LB by itself.
Since it was her birthday they treated us to Baked Alaska. Wonderful flavor with a great flaming presentation.
This is not a Budget Crab Restaurant but a great place to go when you want to eat the best quality seafood in town.
Brian took charge of our dinner from the start and did not disappoint! We were able to sample stone crab claws, oysters Rockefeller, a crab cake, salmon with bernaise, yellowtail- and some great sides. Sautéed garlic spinach and an order of the crab fried rice. We brought food back with us along with some carrot cake to enjoy tomorrow. The restaurant is lovely and we were given a wonderful curved booth to enjoy our meal. The two ladies providing piano and vocals were great. So glad we chose Truluck’s for our memorable seafood dinner!
The Service was incredible! From the bartenders to the wait staff, everyone was attentive and thoughtful. This is definitely our go-to place for anniversaries and celebrations.
Sammy was our server and he was wonderful. He made us feel very comfortable with taking our time in ordering, offered input on dinner selections and wine pairing. We enjoyed him very much and we’ll ask for him when we come back. Great guy and an asset to your restaurant.
One of San Diego's finest restaurants with excellent seafood, superb service, great ambience.
Birthday dinner w friends
Expensive but everything was outstanding
Came here for my anniversary. Was not disappointed. Steak was perfect, lobster was marvelous. Braised short ribs appetizer was the best thing ever.
Great meal! Quality seafood, large portions, great setting. I came here based on the reviews I had read and this did not disappoint! Skip the crab fried rice though, a bit overrated. Everything else was a home run.
Food and service were superior and will be a destination location in future trips to the area.
The food and service were excellent. Everything was delicious. We came here for our anniversary and they helped with the celebration by giving us the best seats in the restaurant, flowers on the table, and a free dessert that was set on fire. Would definitely come here again.
We went to Trulucks for my husband's birthday. We had a wonderful dining experience. The food was outstanding and the service attentive without being intrusive. The stone crab appetizers were great and the lobster bisque was the best we've ever had. For dinner we enjoyed the miso glassed sea bass dish that was prepared to perfection. Our waiter totally surprised us with a complimentary baked Alaska for my husband, and even put little glitter right pieces on the table! If you live near a Truluck's you are lucky indeed. (We would be regulars if we did). If you visit a city where they're located be sure to treat yourself to a meal at this impeccable restaurant. They even called us the next day to ask how we enjoyed our dining experience there.
This was our first visit to Truluck's, but definitely not a last. It may jyst become our new favorite spot for special occasions. Andrew was taking great care of us with a nice sense of humor and anticipating all our requests. Wonderful food, creative and delicious!
Good food and cheerful, attentive service. Excellent cocktails. However, very pricey for what you get—we paid over $125 per person for a basic steak and seafood dinner with wine. I would not go back except for a very special occasion—or if soneone else was paying
Enjoyed our first visit here. The salmon and scallops were excellent. Very attentive, engaging service at the outset, but it appeared our waiter forgot us later on. We had to flag someone else down to talk about dessert...after a wait so long that some diners who had arrived after us had completed their meals and had left. Perhaps an innocent oversight, but it left us with a bit of a downer at the end of what had been a great meal, service, and experience.
Fiancé and I had an amazing experience at trulucks. Food were amazing and were explained in details so that we know what we’re getting. The seafood was delicious and fresh never frozen. My fiancé got the salmon and I got the steak and lobster. We indulge in the greatness of food and were so stuff that we almost passed up on dessert. Surprisingly, our waiter came out with an amazing display of lighting up our dessert with flame with a “happy anniversary “ on the plate. Our celebration could not have gotten better than this. Truly felt the experience at dining at Truluck and will definitely come back again. Also live music really set the mood, just wish we could’ve seen it as it was more in the bar scene than dining area.
Amazing overall experience, prices are hit and miss.
We loved it! The food was amazing and the service was excellent.
Our waiter, Sammy, was spectacular-made the night.
Unlimited Florida Stone crab claws on Mondays!
Nice birthday/ special occasion location.
Great find while visiting San Diego. All you eat stone crab claws on monday night's is fantastic. Service was great. Restaurant was top notch. Seabass was also excellent. Wish there was a trulucks in Seattle.
"Everything is always perfect. This is one of my favorite dining spots and I highly recommended eating here for any occasion.
It was great
Scallops entree was a little salty. Should be paired with a neutral side dish. Creamed spinach also salty. excellent customer service. Waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and wine selection. I’d definitely come back for sure but I’d have to pick a different plate...
Excelente lugar y comida , el servicio por lo general esta muy bien , pero en esta ocasión nos toco un mesero que nos presionaba para pedir , le faltó experiencia para hacer una pequeña pausa
Perfect an delicious as always!
The best place in town, great ambience, nice music and supreme food
From the moment we walked through the door we were pampered....wined and dined, Thank you everyone.
The atmosphere and service were impeccable; the crab cakes were the best I've ever had and the scallops too. One of my best dining experiences in San Diego.
Food was meh and pricy. The value that we got was much worse than expected. The waiter was great though.
Excellent food and service from our waiter Rudy Larsen was the best we’ve ever had! Extremely knowledgeable of food and wine and friendly!
There was a singer there on Monday night. Nice but not if you want a quiet intimate dinner together.
Awesome as usual.
