My wife and I were in San Diego for a conference. It just happened to coincide with our anniversary so we picked Truluck's for dinner Friday night. I ordered the Rib eye and my wife ordered the Sea bass dish. We also ordered a bowl of the lobster bisque to split. The lobster bisque was incredible. I would love to... More

We picked this based on the reviews and were extremely agreeable with many of the reviews. We started off with the chilled seafood platter and it was delish, loved the crab claw! My wife had the surf and turf and agreed the lobster tail was the best we had ever eaten. I had the tuna and it was perfect with... More

Visited this restaurant with my family while visiting San Diego. Trulucks is one of the best restaurants that I have had the pleasure to visit. The food was Devine and the service was 5 star. We had drinks in the bar and dinner on the patio. Both the bar and dining are first class and comfortable. However, the food is... More

Truluck's, what a find! Yes, it's a chain, but we don't have them in Washington, so felt like a new experience. Extremely impressive wine list, had a white, red and a champagne, all very very good. Had the filet and crab mac and cheese on the side. Everything was delectable and perfectly cooked. Whatever they season their steak with is... More

We had a wonderful dinner starting with excellent pre-dinner cocktails since our table wasn't yet ready. The bar area is lovely and staff friendly. That night a very talented gentleman played the piano and sang - superb. Now to the food: The Tuna Tower was great with delicious salmon and crab as well. The pan seared scallops were the best,...

Everything was wonderful here. Andrew our server was so helpful and elegant. He made our experience top-notch. The seafood was fabulously fresh, and the ceviche the best I've ever had. From the moment they greeted us until the next day when they so graciously called us to make sure we had a great experience, Trulucks was the perfect place to... More

We wanted to celebrate our 19th anniversary someplace special, and as I don't eat red meat, it had to serve seafood as well as steak. Known for it's crab (they actually have a crab farm in Florida), we had to order crab - we started with the crab cake ( bread-free) and the crab cocktail. I ordered the stone crab... More
