Perfect meal, beautiful dining room. We came to Larsen's for the first time to celebrate my husband's 55th birthday. Spectacular meal. I had the dry aged NY strip, cooked medium rare to perfection. My husband enjoyed the incredible miso-glazed seabass. Kudos to the chef! More

Great service. Not the exceptional burger I was expecting but it was good. The deviled eggs are exceptional. The meatloaf was very good. The texture of it (and the burger) was different than expected. Took some getting used to but each bite encouraged the next and the next, lol. I'd definitely return for the overall experience More

It was a great experience on all counts. The hostess was flexible and wisely placed each table to enjoy the view. The food was excellent- started with cheese plate and even had gf bread to accompany it.salads has seasonal squash, seeds - very tasty. Grilled mushroom flatbread was full of fresh flavors , hot off the grill. All entrees were perfect- salmon, sushi, etc and happily subbed out farro. Dessert was a giant brownie cake - perfect birthday choice! Wines were moderately priced with extensive choices also by the glass. We’ll be back next time we are in town! More

Seafood | University City/Golden Triangle, San Diego

Just like other times we have had dinner at Trulucks, the entire experience was magical. When I made the reservation, I mentioned it was our 28th anniversary. When we were taken to our booth, the table was decorated with red rose pedals and the hostess wished us happy anniversary. Our waiter was friendly, had suggestions and anticipated our needs. We enjoyed the Monday special of all you can eat Florida crab claws and it was as fresh and delicious as always. We were treated to a surprise baked Alaska, set on fire at our table with ‘happy 28th anniversary’ written in chocolate on the plate. Additionally, the live music that night was a gentleman playing the guitar..very talented and just the right music and noise level for this local. More
