This was my third visit. Went with my sister and her husband who had not been there. The crab claws are perfect. The Dover Sole, outstanding and the King Crab legs to die for. All a bit pricey but well worth it. The wine list is very good and priced well.
IF you can get Andrew as your server, do it. I have been to a zillion restaurants all over the planet and must admit he is exceptional. Listens well and knows just when to service the table...not too fast, nor slow.
Note that the parking can get congested, so plan accordingly. That said, this restaurant is worth going to again and I will.

Warm atmosphere with live piano music. Excellent wines and very well introduced by personnel. But then comes the food, incredible selection of different kind of seafood. Seafood platter as a starter was excellent. After that special surf&turf including huge steak and very tasty and big lobster. Only minus is that after main course there was no chance to have dessert, because you simply couldn't eat anything more after great dinner.

Truluck's offer's good food, amazing service, and great ambiance in La Jolla.
Our waiter Matt was geniunely nice without being fake. He knew the menu like the back of his hand. He was able to thoroughly answer all our questions, and provide recommendations without trying to sell us the most expensive on the menu.

Self parking is somewhat confusing. If you're looking to self park, you actually have to park under neath the Hyatt hotel across the street from Truluck's.

My husband and I go to Truluck's about 6 times a year. I take clients for business a few times a year. The food is great, the service excellent and the piano bar is clubby and fun. They fly crab and seafood in every day from several places around the country. The steaks are great too. We got the seafood tower for an appetizer the other night...it was wonderful. The blue crab was so delicate and the stone crab so fresh. I can't say enough...it is pricey, but go...enjoy!!!
