My wife and I have heard good things about the various Trulucks restaurants around the country. We finally decided to give the one in our backyard a try. We were not disappointed. The food is exceptional. We are seafood buffs and Trulucks is obviously a place to go for that cuisine. The cocktails were also delicious. Our waiter was also noteworthy in his friendliness and helpfulness without being overbearing. The ambiance of the restaurant is also noteworthy in a positive way with quality live music to boot. We will be going back!

We had an excellent dinner. Yellowtail and Swordfish were great. Baked Alaska was perfectly presented. Entire experience was great thanks to our server PJ.

Had a great meal as we always do at Truluck’a when our brother in law was in town for a quick visit. Was able to get last minute reservations the day before and was able to change to an earlier time when he arrived earlier than expected. Loved the live music, both singers were very talented. Service great as well.

My overall experience at Trulucks was ok. Kind of disappointed with our server as well as my fiancé. There was just a lot of excessive compliments that he was saying to my fiancé and unnecessary touching which made her uncomfortable as well as myself, and sort of creeped out.

The table was in a premier spot in the restaurant and was decorated nicely for my wife's birthday celebration. There was a piano player and the volume was perfect; loud enough to hear, but not overpowering. The service was impeccable, as always. When we asked for a suggestion on a wine selection, the waiter went to the bar and brought back 2 samples of Chardonnay for us to try. The stone crab claws were an excellent appetizer (the mustard sauce is addictive!) and the stuffed lobster tail that my wife had was incredible. They even brought a complimentary dessert for her! If I had one complaint, it would be the quality of the yellowtail that I had for my entree. It wasn't terrible, but it was a bit more 'fishy' than I would have expected from a prime seafood house.

Our server was amazing! Gray met our needs, was personable, and knowledgeable regarding the wine and food menu. The food was excellent and met my expectations, considering the price. I would visit again for another special date!!

Trulucks is one of the best restaurants in San Diego. The food options are always creative, they are always open to making modifications if needed and the food has always been perfect. The staff is also incredible, they are friendly, helpful and laid back. They allow you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the evening. The wine list is extensive, and they also have a fair amount of beer options. We truly love going here for dinner with friends and family.

Service and food could have been better for the price.
They called the day after and I expressed my displeasure, the gal that called was not trained for that response. I would have expected, “please come back, we will ....., but nothing”. We all make mistakes, the crime is not doing something to fix the mistake. There are quite a few good steak houses in San Diego, I would suggest trying another.
