TRUST Restaurant is a community restaurant in the Hillcrest area of San Diego serving urban rustic food with the addition of wood fire cookery. Locally sourced ingredients will change with the season. The urban landscape of Hillcrest supports a restaurant with an atmosphere rich in sophistication and generosity. A poplar planked backdrop with custom designed metal bar shelving and gold metal barstools make for an inviting feel accented by a Pental Quartz communal bar. American White Oak dining tables and chairs coupled with specifically designed graphics wrapping the walls reflect the clean lines and angular curves associated with midcentury modern design. Vibrant colors throughout the space next to natural alder wood and black metal pendants provide a warm, soft ambiance. Here at TRUST, our focus is on the whole experience. We aim to provide patrons with great food, cocktails, wine, service experience, and this philosophy is shared among all our staff.

Brad Wise


Brad is an East Coast native who moved out west at 21, fresh out of culinary school. Food has been his passion since the age of 12 and he's been an Executive Chef since the age of 25 when he took over The Padre Hotel - a three level kitchen that serviced five dining outlets. It was there that Brad took home multiple awards two years in a row. Brad started out in San Diego at JRDN in Pacific Beach's Tower 23 Hotel and most recently worked as Executive Chef of Belmont Park's Cannonball & Draft.

Steve Schwob


Prior to opening Trust Restaurant in 2015, Steve worked as Director of Operations for Cannonball and Draft at Belmont Park. His experience in both front and back of house line positions over the last 20 years in San Diego, San Francisco & Las Vegas has given him the foundation for an overall understanding of how a restaurant works from every perspective. For Steve, providing great service is everything because he knows that is what takes a memorable food experience to the next level.

He eventually moved south to San Diego where he oversaw the pastry department for Draft, Cannonball, and Wavehouse Beach Club at Belmont Park.
