Truluck's Seafood, Steak and Crab House - La Jolla Ratings and Reviews
My friend and I were visiting San Diego for a quick getaway and decided to go to Trulucks as our "nice dinner." Our waiter was Brian and he was absolutely amazing. He was very attentive and thoroughly explained the menu to us. He was funny and personable. If I go back to San Diego, I will always stop here.
Best Fine Dining in San Diego.
Truluck's has truly exceptional seafood and steaks, and a wine list to match. Whether the stone crab is your appetizer or on one of the prime steaks, it's fantastic. The wait staff was attentive, and our server, Brian, was clairvoyant in making the evening outstanding for us.
I tried to change my open table Rez from four to six people and it never confirmed so I called the restaurant and they did it we had to change the time. I specifically asked to make sure it was still open tablethey said yes and today I get email from open table that I didn’t show up
We had PJ as a waiter and spent over $500
Bad open table communication
This is a regular special occasion spot. As usual the service and ambiance was impeccable. The menu can use some updating, since we have tried almost everything on it. The lounge singer was an unneeded distraction. Soft background music would have been preferred. Be prepared to spend serious cash, since the food and drinks are a little pricey.
We had a very poor experience-and will not be returning. This was a client dinner and it was-shockingly bad and I dine out frequently. Felt the waiter was mediocre and someone failed to put our order in. We-waited for over an hour with picked over appetizers until someone finally told us they messed up and did not put our order in. We then had to wait another 30 minutes minimum to get our dinner which it was now 9pm and our reservation was at 530pm. I would have-walked out if it were not for having clients with me. Upon returning from the restroommy client was appalled at the state of the restroom which the manager was aware that some unruly and unsupervised children had destroyed. Well the restaurant made no attempt to remedy it until we complained. They removed the dinner expense but kept the other $200 on the bill. We were not looking for a comped dinner but rather a good dining experience. This it was not!
We happened upon this place in search for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It far exceeded our expectations in every way. Truluck runs there reservations through opentable. We got a time, date ,and were able to state if there were any special occasions online. Upon arrival they greeted us and immediately congratulated us on our anniversary. We were seated at a beautiful booth with rose petals strewn across the table. Our waiter Derek was amazing ( there were times when our drinks were refilled without us even realizing ) and by far the best waiter I have ever had. The food was amazing they explained what everything on the menu was of whenever we had any questions. All in all it was amazing and by far the best dining experience I have ever had.
Absolutely terrific! We fought our way out of an under prepared Del Mar after the Classic and arrived not in the best frame of mind. That changed immediately when we checked in with a gentleman in a suit and the perfect demeanor who seated us quickly. Derrick was the consummate professional waiter who guided us through the evening and found a great wine well below what I told him our limit was. The desserts are made on premises (a rarity) and were over the top excellent. A great restaurant!
I'm tired of getting Luke warm food I asked Chick our server please I have eaten here a lot over last six months but am tired of food not hot. He said I guarantee it will be appetizers not hot mashed potatoes again sent back time replacement came dinner over. Management should try Eddie Vs they may learn something , won't be going back.
We were greeted warmly and courteously. The bar service was quick and the happy hour cocktails were delicious - no watering down here. When we walked to our table it was decorated to show it was a special occasion. That was truly appreciated and the baked Alaska dessert was amazing to say the least. The service was spot on without being overbearing.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate over a good meal of seafood.
What was especially nice and noted is the call I received the day after checking to be sure we had a good time.
