Great place for a large party! I took a group of 7 for a work dinner during Comic-Con and it was great. Easy to make reservations, great ambiance and delicious food. We sat outside over looking the harbor. Highly recommended! More

Californian | La Jolla, San Diego

Truly an amazing experience. Perfect spot for a romantic date night. We had a table by the window with spectacular views of the water and the sunset. We did the tasting menu with the addition of the prawn. It was amazing! Every course was perfection. And the prawn was better than lobster. Highly recommend. More

I was slightly worried when we arrived as it was rather empty but I soon realized it was a tad early. Within half an hour people were arriving and the environment was fun and relaxing for Saturday morning brunch. We made a reservation and were seated right away. Great food and great service :) More

The food was outstanding and makes me wonder why we go anywhere else for special occasions. The service is impeccable! We love trying new places but always come back to the Market for birthdays and often our anniversary. The food is always great and so is the service. More

Seafood | University City/Golden Triangle, San Diego

I’ve never been a “foodie” who liked fancy restaurants. My brother gave me a gift certificate, otherwise I would have never chosen to try Truluck’s. I’m so glad I did!! The staff is very friendly and welcoming while maintaining professionalism. We had reservations for 8:30, but ended up getting there at 7:45. They got us seated within minutes even though it looked full. The host was gracious and warm. Our waiter (Matt) provided excellent recommendations without being overbearing; he never let our glasses empty. As we looked around the restaurant, it seemed like all guests were thoroughly enjoying the food and service. The music was loud, but not in a manner the mat prohibited conversation; it was perfect for the ambiance. The complimentary rolls were soft on the inside with a crisp cheesy flavored crust. We ordered the ribeye and ahi seared tuna with asparagus and steak hash browns. The asparagus was good, but not great. The steak hash browns were delicious. However, the entrees really stole the show! The steak was cooked to a tender butter soft perfection with a garlic flavor that was not overpowering. The Ahi was amazing! We watched the desserts with longing, but the meal was so plentiful that we just didn’t have any room left. Our bill was $118 for two, which normally would cause me to feel like I was being overcharged, but Truluck’s is an indulgence that I will repeat! More
