From the moment you enter Trust you can tell it’s going to be a special experience! Love the seating, which is most comfortable. The staff is exceptional- the host and hostess- the server- the bartender, and the most talented professionals cooking our food are top shelf. We so enjoyed watching the people preparing our delicious dishes. Each dish was prepared with such flare! We couldn’t decide which tasting experience we liked best- they were all outstanding. A truly magical experience!

Overall, the meal was good. Very loud, though. Tough to talk indoors, so we moved outside.

Sashimi was very good, but small. Portions are small. Octopus was dry outside and firm. Sausage was salty and dry. Service was good.

We've been to Trust before and this time didn't disappoint. Our server made one recommendation that wasn't great but it was still quality. The service was great and they welcomed us with a glass of champagne for Valentines Day, which was a very nice touch. We'll definitely be back! Thanks for a memorable evening!

Went for a 2nd visit post COVID. They’ve only been re-opened 2-3 weeks. It took forever for the food to come out and EVERYTHING we ordered was super salty on top of being pricey. Our first visit on Valentines Day was awesome but after this visit I’m ok with not returning. The lamb meatballs were not good at all. It would be fair to say they were plain ole “not good”. I think maybe they have a new chef because the old one isn’t available post Covid I presume. I mean even their signature cauliflower dish was SALTY. The shrimp/sausage, pork sugo and oxtail raviolini were NOT to die for. Might MAKE you die though because of the salt. ;-). Very disappointed! Hate it when overpriced restaurants like this and Juniper and Ivy aren’t good.

This is our favorite restaurant in San Diego and we have been many many times. However, I’ve noticed lately that sometimes the food is overly salted. This last time, I found two dishes difficult to eat because of it.

Very cozy and quaint ambiance. Service was outstanding. You order “small plates” that are meant to share. My husband and I started with
Ricotta Agnolotti 5/5, next we had steamed clams 4/5 and sashimi 4/5, Braised Oxtail Raviolini 3/5, Bacon Chop 2/5, and for dessert we enjoyed the banana pudding with ice cream 5/5. Overall great experience. Would definitely dine again.

This was my second visit to Trust, with a different friend. Of the 4 dishes we ordered, the agnolotti was definitely the best -- so rich and earthy! The beets and carrots were tasty (if you like pickled beets, which I do), and the lamb meatballs were delicious. The chicken terrine was so-so...our waiter described it as a "gourmet chicken nugget", which was pretty accurate. Since we were stuffed, we did not have dessert. Our waiter was just the right amount of attentive, and the ambience as usual was relaxed and comfortable. I can't wait to visit again!

Groovy building, open, airy. Used to be a lot noisier - they seem to have put in some noise reduction. Food is outstanding and original. Just a fun, city vibe. Service was awesome - everyone from the bus staff to waitstaff.... excellent. :)

My colleagues and I had a truly fine evening at Trust. Every dish was flavorful—the hush puppies, dumplings and octopus were truly amazing! To top that, our server was amazingly courteous and fun-he advised us to go down the menu in order to have a rich experience. He wasn’t wrong. I’ll be back in MAY when I return to San Diego!

I’ve been to Trust twice now both for breakfast. What can I say? The food is delicious! My favorites are the sticky bun (come early cause they run out), and the pancakes and chicken. The sticky bun is glorious with caramel sauce and topped with ice cream. The pancakes and chicken is a pair that was made in heaven. The pancakes are perfect and the chicken nuggets are crispy and spicy and just delicious! A must try! Come when they open at 9am - it’s quiet and there’s no wait.

Continues to be one of San Diego's top restaurants. There are not many, but those we have in SD are solid. Trust, Jeune et Jolie, Market, and just about anything pan-asian in Kearny Mesa.

If you go - get the Cauliflower and any raw prep and sugo on the menu. Wine list is decent and cocktail program is very good.

Cannot day enough good things about this place. My friend was bowled over from the first bite and everything g starts with the food which is outstanding.

That the service is friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere relaxed, just help to make this one of my favorites.

Good food. Interesting dishes from around the world.
Nice cocktails.
Parking is a problem, unless you want to pay to park in the lot across the street.
Handicap access could be a challenge, though the traffic lights are responsive for pedestrians.
