Delicious, healthy food! The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. On a nice day, sit outside as the restaurant gets a bit noisy.

Wow true food!  What to talk about first The food could best be described as succulent, delectable and fresh. The drinks tantalizing and refreshing. All this was served in a clean, stylish and earth atmosphere. To bring it in, the staff were all shining stars, capping off a beautiful food experience. More...

Really had a really great meal and superb service last night. Got there right at the dinner rush and Brooke was our server who could not have been better. We had the butternut squash pizza on GF crust (vegan) , and the new plant based unbeetable burger. Everything was delicious as was my skinny marg with jalapenos. We stayed a while and when she took a break Amber took over and was extraordinarily friendly and had so much knowledge also about food and the industry. We had some squash pie with their vegan whipped cream (kinda like pumpkin) and it was yummy! Will be back! More...

This place is amazing! First time eating here and the bartender Erin recommend the sea bass which was amazing. The sea bass was cooked to perfection and and paired beautifully with the recommended glass of rickshaw wine. I would highly recommend True Food to anyone interested in high quality cuisine an enjoyable atmosphere More...

Nice ambience, pretty big venue. The food all feels very healthy (esp in terms of ingredients) and it would be a wonderful vegan place. I had the poke bowl, which was okay but felt pricy More...

Had a really nice experience at True Food earlier today! I came right around opening time, so I was immediately seated, loved the patio space and with the perfect day outside it just seemed right. Our server, Taz (I hope I spelled your name right!), was extremely kind and gave me a complete run down of the menu. Always kept our water topped off and was super courteous. I got the Korean noodles, which were good, but not the best noodles I've ever had, especially given the price point of the menu. The serving was just right, but the noodles just lacked some flavor to me to justify a 5 star rating. The tofu however, was cooked extremely well and I was very satisfied with how that turned out.Overall, if it wasn't for the great service and the surprisingly tasty tofu, this would probably be a 3, but when dining, table service and atmosphere means a lot to me as well - something True Food does a great job of facilitating. Although I will say, i do want to come back soon and try some of their other items. More...

Being a vegetarian and also a huge fan of Instagram-worthy food places (very millennial, I know) I am in love with True Food. It's a sleek, modern-rustic eatery focused on real ingredients, nutritious flavors, and wholesome dishes that don't sacrifice any taste. It's extremely vegan/vegetarian friendly, and while the prices for entrees seem high, they're extremely filling and delicious. I came on a Saturday night and didn't have to wait for a table even though the place was packed. My friends and I ordered the Korean sweet potato glass noodles, turkey burger with sweet potatoes, and teriyaki quinoa, and everything was so good and came out so quickly! Service and ambiance were great; this will definitely be a to-go for dinners. More...

Of course the food is a amazing but what I really want to talk about is the service! And more specifically about Grant! He was our server for a large event we had today and he was spectacular. Truly the level of professionalism and care he displayed was outstanding...he's a rare find. Thank you Grant and True Foods for a wonderful experience. More...

I've been coming here for years. It's one of the few restaurants that has innovative and delicious vegan and vegetarian options. Servers are highly trained and know how to engage and make you feel welcome. Cauliflower polenta and butternut squash soup are really good. They have list of creative, delicious non-alcoholic beverage that makes you feel fresh and energized  they are really good. I usually sit by the bar. If you happen to sit and eat by the bar, ask for Nicole. She would take care of you with tons of smiles and serve you the best drinks. I also got a nice pumpkin pie as desert for free! Every time I come here from Seattle I eat here and naturally I say hi to Nicole. She is my favorite person here. Thank you Nicole for being so wonderful and kind. More...

Been to True Food Kitchen a few times now, was more than pleased with the staff and food each and every time. I always sit at the bar and I must say, Joyce and Jordy are absolutely delightful. The fig tarts are fit for Jesus himself, and the inside out quinoa burger is simply "da bomb". Thanks TFK, you guys rock! More...

Love this American style of breakfast. It made me so satisfied and delighted with their food. I've been here recently for brunch and I really had a great experience. The ambiance was great and the service was fine. Ordered their Turkey Burger and Quinoa salad. It was presentably made and was cooked so well.The foods taste so delicious. So delectable to have it. Everything was so great! Reasonable price! Excellent spot for any dining experience you want. Highly recommend! More...

Not usually a vegan, gluten-free kinda girl, but True Food has really won me over! The edamame dumplings are a MUST! I've had their butternut squash pizza and spicy curry (I add chicken) and they are both fantastic! I don't even like squash, but True Food has a way of combining complimentary flavors that everything ends up tasting delicious. More...

Good food that's good for you! Great space -- big and bright!  Good service, too. Try the roasted cauliflower appetizer. I loved the kale cobb salad. Hubby had the grilled salmon. Our friend had the curry dish. It was all delicious. We had chia pudding and flourless chocolate cake for dessert-- again, all delicious. More...

There's a reason we end up here so often - it's FREAKING DELICIOUS. Add that to the relaxed vibe and the fact that it's terrifically well run (thank you, Jeremy the manager!) - and oh, by the way, it happens to be healthy - and it's one of our absolute faves. We were taken care of this time by Jordan, one of the OGs of the place - I've seen him busting his ass since this place opened, but he never waited on us before. He is SUPER knowledgeable about the menu, which is great since there were lots of fall items we hadn't had before. He was super friendly and efficient too. Thank you, Jordan!BRUSSEL SPROUTS, with mushroom, miso sesame vinaigrette and chili thread: SO extremely very delicious. This is a new dish for fall, and SO GOOD.  When it first came out it was lukewarm, but they are extremely nice here, so they just whisked it back to the kitchen and it came back perfect. Temperature issues occasionally happen in this kitchen, but it's always all good because the food is so yummy and they're so nice and they fix it.SALMON ENTREE: This is so freaking good. I always think I need to mix it up and try other entrees - but whenever I come back to this one, I'm like, why do I ever order anything else? Beautiful, luscious, beautifully cooked salmon - a lovely little salad with beets - a super yummy ancient grain concoction - and then the best arugula, pumpkin seed, and cilantro pesto.  Crazy good.BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP: I only had a taster but this was really really good. Coconut cream sweetness. I almost got it for dessert LOL but I was full!Only misstep = Dr. Weill's Wellness Shot, $5 for ginger, pom, sea buckthorn. I was willing to give it a try. Tasted ICK, and I didn't notice a difference after. Some others might feel the energy and wellness LOL one is supposed to feel after this shot. I'd get something else next time.Thank you, TFK - your food is so good and it's always so relaxing here! More...

The food is always on point and the drinks are quite refreshing! The rotating/seasonal options on the menu incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients and are changed up frequently. I'm a big fan of the bowls. I've tried many of the appetizers as well and have loved them all. The prices are a bit steep on a few menu items however you pay for quality so I'll certainly keep coming back. More...

Eat more color. At True Food Kitchen, they live up to this motto. Their dishes are filled with colorful veggies and their dishes and drinks are unique. This was my second time at this location since I had a visiting friend. I made reservations through Open Table and we were seated within minutes of checking in. Both times I have been seated inside which I was thankful for this time around because it was hot outside! The first time I ordered the ancient grains with grass fed beef ($22). This time my friend and I decided to get that as well as the seasonal Butternut Squash Pizza.  The ancient grains bowl is definitely filling and the grass fed steak was tender. This will be my go to if I come back again, regardless of how pricey it is. The butternut squash pizza was unique in the almond ricotta cheese that was plopped on the pizza. The downside was the toppings didn't stay on the thin crust pizza since there wasn't anything to attach it. Some parts of the crust were soft and chewy while others were crunchy and needed to be chewed on quite a bit. The ambience is very open, airy and perfect for catching up. Parking is easy since it's located in the Stanford Shopping Center. Everyone was very polite and professional. More...

I love the Korean Noodle bowl at True Food, simply devine!! All the margaritas are delicious, I highly recommend them.  All the food is clean, and they have a great variety of offerings.  The service is usually spot on, and the restaurant is very clean.  It's a great place to get what I consider an almost home cooked meal.

Absolutely amazing experience! My brother invited me to try the restaurant and I could not have been more impressed. The bartender, Jackie, made this such a great first time visit! She's knowledgeable, friendly, detailed and respectful. She made suggestions based on conversation. My brother is vegan and she made recommendations. I wasn't feeling well and she brought me a tea to try. The food came in great time and was fresh and as delicious as she made it all sound! Will definitely be back and spreading the word to fam, friends and church members wanting to eat good and healthy! More...

We decided to eat at True Food in the district today. My husband had the grill fish tacos and I had the noodles with salmon. Compared to the two ladies next to me my noodles were only half way full in the bowl with a healthy portion of fish. Just seemed a bit odd. The drinks were different and very interesting. The Pina colada' was awesome! My plate was very very good. And my husband enjoyed his tacos. More...

He was so nice and the perfect mix of attentive and letting us sit and gab. The restaurant is so nice and open, and the food is unique and fresh! I’ll be back! More...

We had a great experience at this new location. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, and everything from the decor to the food is just clean and nice. Had the beet burger, pretty good, and the korean noodles, not our favorite, but fun to try. The flourless chocolate cake was delish. We went for our daughter's birthday. Best of all was our waiter Jonathan. He was so friendly, and honest, and helpful. He offered to take our picture when they brought out the cake with a candle in it and then he fully cleaned our table and got it all ready for the photo. It was very sweet. He took his job seriously and was so nice. Plus we left feeling like we'd taken care of our bodies by eating so well. Thanks True Food for a great meal! More...

Food was fresh and amazing but what really made our experience wonderful was the service.

She went above and beyond and we will definitely be back! More...

I think it is about time I review this place as it hasn't disappointed after several trips.The unbeetable burger! That's all I can say...get it and thank me later. It is everything it lives up to and more....juicy flavors, soft bun with the side of kale makes this theee best vegan burger I ever tasted. It is a brand new menu item, but I think it is seasonal so make you try this before it is gone.  I typically get the inside out quinoa burger which is another fav I usually get and will continue to get once the unbeetable burger goes away.I did try the butternut squash pizza also that was also brand new menu item but wasn't a huge fan, definitely fresh but just okay for me...I think it was missing some flavor. The service was excellent, our waitress was super sweet and accommodating. We probably were annoying with everything we asked for but couldn't tell because she had a great attitude and provided great suggestions. More...

He is so personable and brought just the right amount of attention and fun to our meal. Thank you Tyler! We will be back! More...

True Food Kitchen offers a clean eating,  tasty experience with vegetarian options that are all filling The vegetarian options are clearly labeled with a "v" for vegan or "veg" for vegetarian. There are multiple (~10) options available!  Edemame dumplings - Delicious! This was my favorite item that I tried. The dumplings are creamy and the sauce is tasty. I just wish it was less expensive. $11 for a starter is too pricy for me. Unbeetable burger - I split this entree with a friend and thought it was just ok. It was overall a little plain, and I thought it needed spice. The beet burger patty fell apart as I ate it, which led to a messy dish. Ancient grains bowl - This entree was more flavorful than the burger and was filling. I took leftovers home. Ambience - The ambience is clean and the "Grow" sign inside is social media worthy. The interior is very large, but there were still people waiting to be seated on a Saturday lunch. It gets busy!  I did notice that many of the dishes/utensils were dirty. I had a dirty knife, plate, and glass. The restaurant is inside a large and fancy shopping district. Parking was easy to find in the garage which is a short walk to the restaurant. There was an art festival going on in the main square, which we checked out after lunch. More...

Delicious and health conscious food and amazing service every time. I usually go alone during lunch for a quick break from the office, so you can often find me at the bar. The outside and bar views are great, and the natural juice drinks are phenomenal. To be fair, I've only had the "Ginger O.G." or the "O.G. Ginger," (whatever it's called) but I said what I said! Go! You won't regret it. More...

My waiter was very helpful, kind and accommodating. The rest of my party were very late in arriving at the restaurant, and my waiter was very understanding and checked on me frequently to ask if everything was okay with me and my friends.I was surprised to discover that I could not get phone nor wifi service inside the restaurant, especially for being in Silicon Valley. This made it impossible for me to communicate with my friends and find out why they were running late. It would be great if you offered free wifi access to your customers.Other than that, the restaurant is great, amazing food, attentive service, and terrific staff! More...

This place is fantastic. First off, when we got in they were featuring new wines next to the host stand so that was cool, love me some free wine. The host was really sweet and sat us right away, even though the restaurant was pretty busy. Our server Brooke was really comfortable to talk to and EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the menu. I've actually never had anybody describe every single food item I've asked about in such detail, so I was impressed. Started with the skinny margarita, which they use fresh juice for so it was yummy. I ordered the dumplings and Brussels sprouts as appetizers and they were so good. For my entree, I ordered the poke bowl (I'm trying poke all over San Diego to find my favorite one). The poke was tender and the sauce was amazing. Was too full for dessert but my server convinced me to try the squash pie so my boyfriend and I did and were not disappointed. Tasted like the best pumpkin pie I've ever had. The manager, Jeremy stopped by the table to check on us and he was really sweet and funny. Would love to come back again soon!! More...

I've been here a couple times, and was excited to see the new seasonal Fall menu items. My mom and I went for dinner and I got the Cauliflower Polenta with tofu with a sparkling prickly pear beverage. She got the new beet burger with an antioxidant beverage. The polenta was so good and I had almost forgot it was made with cauliflower at first! We also got the squash pie as well. You have to try it. It was almost exactly identical to pumpkin pie! More...

I had the pleasure of again visiting True Food kitchen in El Segundo. I love how their menu is geared around being healthy, in season and fresh... I feel like I could seriously eat there everyday! We were seated fast and promptly greated by our amazing server, Allison. We started with the chard cauliflower and it came out way faster then we thought. They just came out with a new fall menu and they have all sorts of new items. I usually love the poke bowl and I put their almond ricotta on anything, but this time Allison, who was very knowledgeable about the new menu items, made some new suggestions and I ventured outside my box. Everything from the delicious food, attentiveness of our server and little wait time made my experience amazing. I definitely reccomend!! More...

TFK has a really cool and open-spaced vibe serving healthy food (i.e. no french fries available) and cocktails. This place seemingly gets busy during the Friday evening happy hour time frame but, they have more than enough space to accommodate. I had an appropriately strong Cadillac Margarita while my fiance got a decent can of blonde ale.  Below are the ratings breakdown of what we got.-Charred cauliflower: 5/5; really good flavors and the cauliflower had a nice crisp to it instead of being soggy. Vegan-friendly which is a plus.-Seasonal and vegan wild mushroom pizza: 4/5; mushroomy and had lots of caramelized onions but I still prefer real cheese versus vegan cheese.-T.L.T. (tempeh, lettuce, and tomato): 3/5; my fiance stated that this was alright but wished they had regular fries instead of sweet potato hash as an accompaniment. Vegan-friendly. More...

My friend and I came here unplanned the other day since we both have some dietary restrictions and this seemed like a good place for us both to eat.  We got there for lunch and found out that they had just switched their menu over to their fall menu- talk about the heart eye emoji.  I ordered the butternut squash soup and the grass-fed burger, and my friend got the turkey burger. Our waitress quickly brought our drinks out and refilled them a few times during our meal and at the end of it. She brought my soup out first and then our burgers.  The soup was delicious and very flavorful.  It had ginger, pepper, squash and cinnamon notes to it.  It tasted the way you imagine fall meals to taste.  Our burgers were cooked perfect as well and had awesome toppings on them.  I got cucumber salad as the side and my friend got the sweet potato hash.  I will for sure come back to a true kitchen.  So delicious and love the clean ingredients.

LOVE True Food. I've been coming here for about a year now and still have nothing but good things to say about TFK. For appetizers- I love the Edamame Dumplings, the Cauliflower, or the Kale Guacamole. For my main- I used to get the T.L.T (tempeh, lettuce, tomato) which was always delicious but decided to switch it up a few months ago and get the Tuscan Kale Salad which is fresh, flavorful, and delicious. The most recent time I went they had a Matcha Hotchata tea on the menu- I got it iced. Liquid gold right there- highly highly recommend! The only reason I took a star off is because service can be slow. Servers are always friendly and helpful, but it often takes a while for even drinks to be brought out. I've never seen TFK even somewhat close to being empty, but service seens to be slow even when it's not peak rush hours- so be mindful of that. However- that never discourages me from coming so don't let it discourage you! More...

Had an excellent meal. Big complaint is the terrible, hard, cold metal chairs. What were they thinking?  Will only go back if a booth is available.

I stopped by True Food for a happy hour with my coworkers, and it really hit the spot!  For starters, you can't beat the happy hour pricing. Every Monday through Friday from 3-6 they offer their HH menu. It includes cocktails for $5 and tapas like kale guacamole and hummus for $5 each as well. They also do a happy hour deal where you can get a bottle of wine and a Margherita pizza combination for $20!  We ordered the $5 margarita cocktails and then one of each tapas plate. Everything tasted so good! They even gave us extra chips/pita bread for the large bowls of dip they served. We finished up the meal with 3 different desserts - the squash pie, the chocolate flourless cake, and the chia pudding. All were excellent, but we absolutely devoured the chocolate cake. Our waitress was also extremely nice, and it's a huge space both indoors and outside so don't hesitate to bring a whole group! More...

One of my favorites, great for brunch, lunch, dinner or even a few snacks and a drink. Located at the end of Old Town Pasadena on Colorado Blvd, the restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating along with a bar which has seating also. Everything about this restaurant is fresh - the food is always delicious with ample amounts of flavor while staying healthy. My favorites are:1. Kale Guacamole 2. Edamame Dumplings 3. Quinoa Teriyaki (with any of the proteins)4. Pad Thai (Seasonal)5. Grass Fed Burger 6. Poke Bowl7. All the Vegan optionsAsk them for their hot sauce, a house blend which add the right amount of kick to each dish. They also have a great drink selection - lemonades to die for and cocktails that taste like you've ordered them from a very upscale bar, perfectly made with a manageable price point. A must if you're in Pasadena and looking for a healthy meal which will leave you satisfied! More...

If you are vegetarian/vegan, you will find this place to be stupendous. They have a seasonal menu that is well-prepared, nutritious, and very affordable (around $15 per plate). They serve you only fresh food that is locally sourced, and that tastes way better than your regular supermarket produce. Plus, the place itself is very well put together and the mood is very family-friendly. More...

Went here for brunch after a race in Santa Monica. Nice place with a good number of well marked vegan and vegetarian options. I got the hangover Rx to drink which contains coconut water, pineapple, orange and honey (so not completely vegan).  I was not hungover but running a hard race in the heat can feel like a hangover afterwards so this was the perfect post-race treat as I love coconut water concoctions post-race. It was super refreshing and not too sweet. For my meal I got the vegan chorizo bowl which contain vegan chorizo, jicama slaw, avocado, dried sweet corn and radish over beans with corn tortillas on the side. Overall I liked the bowl. The vegan chorizo was delicious and well seasoned but I felt like the plate was a little brown and bean heavy. Would have preferred larger portions of the other veggies or maybe some greens in there. Overall had a good experience and would come back. I'd like to try their unbeetable burger for lunch or dinner. More...

My group of 3 stopped in Monday around lunch time. We had no problem finding a table. Here are a few highlights:Pros: There is TONS of seating so there was no wait! Good for groups too, there were several larger tables. Inside was clean and well lit. Our waitress was friendly, accommodating and just overall great! Food was fresh, delicious with whole/clean ingredients. Menu had several flavor and customizable options.Cons: I am not familiar with the area and parking was a bit difficult to find. I saw there was a parking garage but I am not sure if it was for True Food Kitchen customers. Price does hold true to the $$ - could be an upwards of $20 for one lunch dish with protein. The area/neighborhood was extremely busy! More...

This was my second time coming here and both times it did not disappoint. This location is very busy and trendy but I was able to call and get a reservation same day on a Saturday at 7:30 pm. I would recommend to call ahead and make a reservation any time on the weekend. I came for a casual birthday dinner and the birthday girl was eating mainly plant-based but this restaurant really has something yummy for everyone with different diets.We started off with the kale guacamole and brussels sprouts for appetizers. The brussels sprouts had a delicious glaze and were cooked al dente. I was skeptical about kale bits in guac but the crunch provided by sunflower seeds mixed in and texture from kale bites made for a yummy app.  I ordered the rosé sangria, which was so light and refreshing and the best of both worlds. My friend ordered the ginger margarita which was amazing. I would recommend both! Another friend ordered the steak tacos and said they were great!I ordered the margarita pizza which was delectable; the sauce was tangy and dough was chewy and yummy. I would definitely recommend it. My friend ordered the ancient grains bowl with polenta and a great mix of veggies. Overall I would recommend More...

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. From looking at the menu, I was initially afraid that the food would be long on "trendy" and short on substance.  The food came in good sized portions and was all very tasty. My wife ordered the fish tacos, which she usually loves, but found them to be too "fishy" in taste. Her replacement choice was brought far faster than I would have thought possible, and was very tasty.  Our server was great and the cocktails were also enjoyable.  I would have liked to have seen some more substantial choices on the menu, but I was still pleased.

Currently my favorite restaurant! Every bite is a burst of flavors in this place. My usual is Ancient Grains bowl, but this time I got Grilled Salmon and it did not disappoint. Salmon was cooked to perfection, the green sauce is amazing, the grains and the side salad were delicious! Highly recommend their Grilled Salmon. The service was great. Our waiter was so nice and even when I made a mistake with one of the side orders and asked him to replace it, he was so kind to just bring the side as a gesture. Such a lovely friendly staff.The atmosphere of this restaurant is also worth mentioning! It is such an open space with high ceilings and nice decorations. It's a great place to dine in. More...

Holey Moley! This place is amazing! I have tons of food allergies. So, it is very difficult for me to ever eat out. True Food Kitchen has an amazing clean menu full of gluten-free and vegan options. I called in advance because I had a hankering for their amazing blueberry quinoa pancakes. Host Angelica asked me to hold on so that she could go in the kitchen and check for me. How awesome is that?!  The food was fantastic! One of the things I love the most about this place, besides the food of course, is the atmosphere and the people that work here. My server Mackenzie treated me like royalty. I will certainly be asking for her again my next visit! General manager Brett came over and spent quality time talking to me. The people at True Food Kitchen  don't just make small talk with you, they spend quality time connecting with you. That makes the experience all the better! I felt like I was on vacation at a five-star resort. So, stop reading and get in your car already! More...

True Food Kitchen is where its at! TFK offers a diverse menu, from a grass fed burger, to a panang curry bowl, multiple pizzas, unique salads, etc. My top two favorites are: 1) Ancient Grains Bowl and 2) Grilled Salmon. The ingredients are all SUPER fresh as you can see if you sit inside near the open concept kitchen! If you are unsure what you are craving and everyone in your group is differing in opinions, come here. The menu has something for everyone, and the service is great. The waiters/waitresses are always knowledgeable about the menu. I would like to highlight my most recent waiter, Louis, he was a delight, and really clicked well with the our table (so fun when that happens)! Another thing to note, their drinks (both cocktails and non-alcoholic)- freakin tasty and refreshing! More...

This was my first time to True Food Kitchen for a impromptu lunch with my mom. Their menu is created around fresh seasonal ingredients with a focus on conscious nutrition. Offering a variety of healthy dishes  that don't sacrifice flavor. Almost any dish can be modified to fit vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, paleo and keyto options.Our server Kyle was very polite and knowledgable about the food and drink offerings. I almost forgot he was there after being engrossed in a conversation with my mom. Our water was always filled and the food came out in a timely manner. As far as the menu goes there are plenty of delicious options to choose from I wish I could try them all. To start we split the Corn and Tomato Flatbread great recommendation  Kyle (it made a great lunch the next day.) I had the Cauliflower Polenta Bowl which paired nicely with the Health Aid Kombucha. My mom had the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with the Sparkling Peach Tea. The dishes were rather large but great for sharing. After I felt full and content with a lighter meal option. The decor was modern meets rustic with lots of exposed wood giving it a farm feel. I loved the mini porcelain tubs with herbs growing out front what a nice touch. We ate lunch around 12:30 on a Tuesday, they were in the middle of lunch rush with most tables occupied. To my surprise we did not have to wait long. This was the perfect place for a casual brunch with the girls or a formal business lunch. Make sure to check it out at the St. Johns Town Center. More...

This was our first time at True Food Kitchen and will definitely not be our last! Such a beautiful ambiance and the food was amazing. It's tough to make healthy food so delicious, but they did an awesome job! We ordered the prickly pear and limeade refreshers, Brussel sprouts, charred cauliflower, turkey burger, kale Cobb, and Panama curry...ALL of which were amazing! Topped off dinner with the flourless chocolate cake (to die for)! But honestly as great as the food was, the best part of the meal was our server Amanda! We've literally never experienced SUCH amazing service. She was so sweet, answered all of our questions, and was such a joy to have around. I was there for my 60th birthday and she really went out of her way to make sure my family and I enjoyed dinner and had a great time! We will 100% return and will try to come on a time she is there because she was THAT amazing! Way to go, True Food Kitchen...you have got it all figured out! Can't wait to come back! More...

Kind of bummed that they no longer have one of the Thai bowls (they currently have a Penang Curry - but there used to be a Red Thai Curry bowl that I really liked).  They also just rolled over to their new fall menu - and I love their grouper that I think they brought back from the past. I don't think I've ever had anything here that I've disliked - all pretty tasty and (seemingly) pretty healthy to boot. If you like guac (who doesn't?) definitely check out their guac which has a slight citrus twist but ask for their gluten-free pitas that get toasted. The caramelization makes them much better than their standard chips. More...

For my meal, I had the teriyaki quinoa bowl and it. was. amazing. Our server wasn't the best, but in my experience, when the food is that good - you get over it. Only snag here is that you have to endure parking and frankly being, Lenox Mall. I've been waiting for my friends to say they're going to Lenox so I can ask them to bring me good - problem is that they're all as anti-social as me :( More...

Big menu selection, and good food for casual (but fairly expensive) dining. The check-in process is unnecessarily tedious; even with a reservation you need to check in outside the front door, then are told to walk inside, and then have to check in again with a different person. Then stand around for a few minutes trying to stay out of everyone’s way until you’re taken to a table. More...

Fabulous meal tonight at True Food Kitchen in La Jolla! New fall menu just in - Roasted Brussels Sprouts are back with mushroom, miso sesame vinaigrette and chili thread. One of my favorite dishes! We also had the charred cauliflower in an interesting medley of middle eastern flavors - tahini, date, dill, mint and pistachios. Yum!Fall flavors bring to mind root vegetables, pumpkins and butter nut squash so we added to our tapas the butternut squash soup and roasted beet and goat cheese flatbread. Everything was delicious. Even though we were stuffed, Francesca and Jackson convinced us to top off our meal with squash pie...better than pumpkin! I had no idea it was vegan and gluten free!  I think the photo says it all. Needless to say, we'll be back to continue working our way through the new menu. More...

I chose True Food for the dinner prior to my induction, we literally drove straight from the restaurant to the hospital to welcome our newest addition. The quinoa burger was fantastic, and I took our hummus to go, a little snack for later to avoid hospital food. The staff was fantastic, everyone congratulated us. I unfortunately do not remember the name of the woman who seated us, but she was courteous and started our dining experience off right. Our server Kenneth was efficient and his service was spot on. We were also greeted by Danielle who came by our table just to see how we were doing. Thank You to all of the staff who served and assisted us and made our special day that much more enjoyable, we will definitely continue to dine here! More...

Noise level was low, we were sitting outside. The last couple of times I ate there, I sat inside, and the noise level was high once the restaurant was filled. Even though we were there to eat it was very hard to hear each other, but that won't stop me from enjoying this restaurant and eating a delicious meal. I have mentioned True Food Kitchen to my friends and how wonderful the food is. Thank you Linda More...

Fresh Seasonal food prepared in an open kitchen. So many delicious options to choose from! The only downside is the open area is super loud. Outside seating is a better place to have a conversation without shouting. More...

I only eat at two places at the mall, Tender Greens and here. And there is a reason as to why, after a long day of shopping, I just want to eat something healthy and refreshing and TFK is the perfect place to go for that. Their menu changes seasonally so if you do come here every few months, you probably won't find what you ate a couple months ago. And that's okay! Think of it as, there are seasonal menus to provide the customer with fresher food, and who doesn't want fresh food? While it is a bit more on the expensive side and portions can be a bit small, the food is quite tasty and creative. It's a good place to go for people with dairy and gluten allergies. For example, I ordered fish tacos and the lime crema was coconut based. So for those who aren't able to have dairy but can eat meats/fishes/chicken, they can get the best of both worlds at TFK without having to go get purely vegan food as a compromise. The customer service here is also really good. I went with my husband and the waiter misheard me. I ordered a fish taco plate and a pizza (cuz I wanted the pizza to share instead of the appetizers they had) and my husband ordered a chicken dish of some sort that I can't remember. But he had heard that I had heard pizza only. So when our order came out and there were no fish tacos, he immediately apologized and fixed it and it was on the house. Being able to acknowledge your mistakes is what I call good customer service, but to go above and beyond is to apologize in that manner and comp the dish. The ambiance here is also so nice. At night the lights are dimmed so it is a cute casual date night outing. There are candles at the tables which get lit up. And overall the place is very spacious.I personally enjoy the pizza here and think it's a super good deal for a vegan pizza. It's the only place so far that I've seen has vegan ricotta on their pizzas and it's super tasty! It doesn't exactly taste like ricotta, but it's the concept and the taste that counts. The crust is super crispy and fluffy and moist, and all the vegetables are cooked perfectly. So I do recommend that anyone that comes here to order the pizza.If you're ready to eat healthy and fresh food, TFK is for you! More...

So....Matt's amazing and so is the rest of the True Food Team. If you're looking for great drinks, excellent service and amazing food-True Food Ballston is the place to be. I've been super disappointed by all of the restaurants in Ballston's New Food Court (with the exception of Mezal, which is AMAZE-BALLS), but True Food breaks the sucky mood. Give them a try and ask Matt or Lauren to make you something special for an even better experience. More...

I came here this visit as a way to celebrate my birthday with my husband. I normally love True Food Kitchen and we try to come at least once a month - but the last couple of visits haven't been the best. Mostly because it seems the kitchen is forgetting or changing components of certain recipes. For instance, we've gotten the Charred Cauliflower for 4 or 5 visits. It's an amazing dish and the combination of sweet, savory, and warm flavors is truly delicious. But this time and the last it's been completely missing ingredients - particularly the pistachios and the chopped dates, which are listed on the menu in it. And it's not like the restaurant was out of the item... we asked our waitress if they had changed the recipe this time when it came without dates and pistachios and she said no, that the kitchen just wasn't preparing it properly. Then took it back and brought it to us a few minutes later with the pistachios and some hurriedly chopped dates over top (both times this happened they were NOT super busy btw). Additionally, there were two menu items (Summer Corn Flatbread and the Grilled Salmon with an arugula beet salad) that I guess the restaurant was out of Arugula that night so the Arugula was swapped for spinach. It wasn't a terribly big deal, but I just imagined they would at least notify us prior to bringing out two of our dishes with an ingredient change. I actually chose the salmon specifically because I was looking forward to the Arugula beet salad that came with it. Had I known it was just going to be a spinach salad instead (which lacks the edgy, crispy, peppery experience of arugula) I would've gotten my regular go-to menu item of the Ancient Grains bowl in lieu. The food is great. Atmosphere is great. Our server was great too. Just not sure what's been happening with the kitchen and would appreciate a little more communication regarding ingredient swaps next time. Overall it was not a "bad" experience. It just simply didn't leave me "wow"ed or impressed like I used to be when I first started going here. More...

I can't say enough great things about True food! The teriyaki bowl is amazing. And the dumplings to start are great. Their teas and lattes are amazing. The service is always great as well. The Margherita pizza is really good to share. The other bowls are amazing as well. And the avocado toast is never a bad choice! More...

Loved my first visit. I wish I had tried sooner. The food is delicious and the flourless cake with ice cream was amazing. I ordered the Korean noodles and cauliflower appetizer. I enjoyed the seasonal watermelon lemonade; I'm hoping they keep it on the menu year round. Great vibe and cheery. I recommend a late Sunday lunch or early dinner to enjoy a less crowded experience. Can't wait to go back! More...

My favorite place on the plaza for a delicious meal.Ambiance? Yes. Polite wait staff? Yes. Fresh and clean decor? Yes. Amazing food? YESSeated immediately on a Wednesday evening for dinner to a fairly busy house. Lots of staff bustling around, delivering goods here and there.Started off with a wellness shot--no alcohol--with ginger and buckthorn. Actually quite tasty. A little spicy. A lot of tart.Ordered the good earth kale Cobb and Brussel sprouts. Momentarily after ordering, management arrived to inform us that they thought the Brussels would take a good while since it was ordered so much for the evening, and asked us for another appetizer option on the house. We went with the beet and goat cheese on gluten free flatbread. Maybe another five minutes later, Brussels arrived, and we were told that they had pan roasted them quickly so that we could have some, but that they are typically crispy since they're oven baked. Brussel sprouts were so good!!!! Tons of flavor, and I loved the shiitake mushrooms that were added. They brought out the flat bread and salad as well. Everything was well made and darn fresh. At the end of the night, they ended up comping us the Brussel sprouts AND the flatbread. Amazing service More...

So nice to find a solid healthy restaurant that doesn't feel like a kale-infested vegetarian heavy-on-the tofu eatery.  Yes, there's kale but also chicken, salmon, and shrimp. And the vegetarian dishes taste delicious. I particularly love the Korean noodles, that come with a voice of chicken, tofu, shrimp, or salmon. The zesty spinach-carrot-cilantro glass noodle mix bursts with flavor and is very filling. My party also like the edamame appetizer and butternut squash soup. The pizzas appeal to meat lovers (chicken) and vegans. I'm also impressed by the fine red and white wines by the glass. More...

Wow! Where do I even begin? I have been coming to this restaurant frequently for the past several months. I was initially drawn to its "anti-inflammatory" based menu and cool interior but I've become a loyal fan due to the excellent service and delicious eats! First off, they have an app for your phone. This app allows you to make reservations, check out the menu, as well as score some great deals! Just for signing up you get $10 off, a free dessert and special invites to events and discounts that they are offering. This app keeps track of your spending and you can earn more rewards the more you spend. Seems like a pretty good deal to me!Second, they offer seasonal options. I'm a person who loves change and especially loves trying new foods! Each season they roll out new and unique flavors! I often lean towards these options as they always are excellent!Third, the staff is top notch! I have yet to go to this restaurant and have a less than superior interaction with any of the staff members. Whether it is the hostess, waitress, or manager, they all care about your experience and are willing to assist in any way! Fourth, in addition to the deals found on the app, they have a Sip & Savor promotion that offers $5 deals for both food and drinks from 4-6pm. I finally tried these the other day. Both the portion and price are perfection! Fifth, but certainly not least, THE FOOD IS AMAZING. I always leave this restaurant feeling good. The portions fill you up but you don't feel gross afterward. They truly but a lot of effort into their menu! It is fresh, clean food with a twist. I haven't been this impressed with a restaurant in a long time. True Food Kitchen is a great gem in the heart of Jacksonville and I recommend this place to all! More...

3.5 lovely venue, fab service..food was good, but could have been tweaked a tiny bit. My friends are in town and hadn't really checked out Pasadena yet so we came to Old Town for lunch and shopping. True Food Kitchen is right at the end of the strip and has such a lovely bright and airy atmosphere. The restaurant seems huge - there's plenty of indoor, outdoor, and bar space. They also have misters if you sit on the patio. Service is extremely attentive, Amanda helped us and was very enthusiastic and prompt. Our waters were never lower than half full, she took time to explain the dishes, and was friendly to my daughter. As for the food we stuck to all vegetarian, but there are plenty of options to add chicken, steak, shrimp, or salmon. We shared everything which i think was a great way to try more and feel more satisfied with variety. We had the Mediterranean quinoa which was a bit bland. My palette leans plain tbh, but this really had no flavor. I think quinoa may be a flavor suck ingredient- do not recommend this dish. We also had their take on the Cobb salad. It's packed w veg and Gorgonzola, but I wish it had some crunch..maybe fried onions, or if they roasted the chickpeas or had some kind of interesting bacon substitute. We also had the cauliflower polenta which is actually more like cauliflower rice and I'm trying to recall, but fairly certain it was served cold. I wish they would rename this to yellow cauliflower rice. It had a nice flavor and a little kick of spice. Saved the best dish for last - the butternut squash pizza - loved the herbed crust and the sweetness of the roasted squash and caramelized onion. The almond ricotta was a great creamy addition. Overall great place to go with mixed groups of diners for a casual, yet classy meal, but the food flavors weren't as interesting as they sounded. More...

Unique dishes, overpriced. Some things are done really well—the charred cauliflower and heirloom tomato - watermelon salad are both unusual flavors and worth trying. (Ordered the charred cauliflower twice—the first time impressed me, the second time it was just burnt). Drinks are interesting but again overpriced—$8 for lemonade?! I brought my daughter and each meal, dinner and brunch, came to over $80 / $90 for two people, with one ordering off the kids menu. I’m fine with paying for ambience / a nice dining experience but this doesn’t really offer that—it’s kind of an overlit warehouse feel with too-tall ceilings and exposed everything, so it is super loud even when it’s not busy. Eating outside is definitely an upgrade so opt for that. Agree with other commenters that the service is slow. I will go again because the food is good—nothing you couldn’t easily replicate at home—but in the future I’ll probably opt for grab’n’go individual items for a quick lunch rather than racking up a high bill for a menu that’s basically a slight upgrade from Panera. I’d love to see them either make the interior more upscale to match their prices, or make the menu available in smaller / more accessible cafe settings with price point to match. Worth trying twice.

Delicious! I took an out of town guest that is both vegan and gluten free here yesterday. We were behind two men who would not let up on securing a seating for 9 immediately without a reservation during peak lunch time (on a holiday - Mon Sept 2nd). Our waitress was great, the food was delicious and I was pleased that there were options for my out of town guest. The Kale Aid (beverage) and the Teriyaki Quinoa bowl with Chicken was super delicious. I took a slice of Lasagna Bolognese home, which the portion size was smaller than expected, especially for the price ($15) and was OK. I have been corrupted on that front as I have had the best Lasagna ever home-made by an Indian friend that was out of this world. This is food that I would eat every day, especially if it was closer and more around the $10/meal range. More...

True Food Kitchen in Kansas City is delicious!! I visited visited KC over Labor Day weekend and was excited to try this new restaurant at the Plaza. The food is fresh, healthy, and creative. They have seasonal menus so their produce and veggies are always in season!The options on the menu were endless! I appreciate the calorie counts on the menu and the transparency of all the ingredients that go into each dish. We ordered the kale guacamole to start which was so yummy, and then I had the Mediterranean quinoa salad for my main meal. It was one of the best salads I've ever had! I would love to try their bowl options the next time I go.We reserved a spot on the patio for lunch online, and when we arrived it was ready immediately. The service couldn't have been better, especially when it was packed over a holiday weekend. Prices I thought were very reasonable for the quality and freshness of the food! I can't wait to go back and visit again! More...

Delicious food, beautiful decor and an extremely friendly staff. When we were seated, we originally sat outside but it started getting cold. Although there were heaters, it was quite breezy and they were very accommodating and found us a table inside. To start, I had a watermelon lemonade which was so refreshing. Then for appetizers we chose the edamame dumplings and the hummus. Both were seasoned beautifully. The dumplings were sitting in a bath of dashi sauce and they soaked in that beautiful flavor. The hummus was amazing; the only thing I would change is the pita bread. The entree I chose was the spinach and mushroom pizza. The pizza was cooked to perfection. Had good smoke and char and it balanced out by the almond based ricotta. Excellent vegan pizza if I do say so myself. If you're looking for delicious food that won't break the bank, this is definitely the place to go. More...

Firstly the ambiance was simply perfect, even though it felt a little cramped since it was lunch time. They were easily able to squeeze in a party of 8, and we only made a reservation an hour before. Felt like a seamless experience. The food was simply amazing. All the dishes I've had from appetizers to entree and beverage were light and flavorful. I like that they have so many vegetarian options but what I like about this place is the flavors aren't traditional. It's obviously fresh but the different-ness adds to the experience! I had the edamame dumplings, Korean Noodle with Tofu and Lavender Iced Tea! A little on the pricier side for sure, but great aesthetics! More...

This place is excellent! A little higher priced by some comparisons, but when you consider that everything is made fresh and has great ingredients, it's more than worth it. I had the cauliflower polenta. Wow, I would have never imagined. If you didn't already know it was made of cauliflower, you wouldn't know it. Really fresh, bright flavors, it was a perfect lunch for me. SO had the "TLT" (tempeh lettuce and tomato with avocado). I tried that, maybe that'll be what I get on my next visit.

If you love eating healthy, or simply don't want to feel guilty after eating out, come here! I got the chicken sausage pizza, my partner got the cobb salad. I would recommend getting an entree like the salad and not a pizza (you might as well go to Mod Pizza for pizza). The mcobb salad was amazing and delicious. The staff was very friendly and the location was clean.Definitely coming again to try another salad or entree. More...

I guess I haven't been back to True Food Kitchen for a while.  Went back yesterday.  Basically ordered the same thing I order before:  seasonal Vegetable Crudités (chilled raw vegetables with tzatziki & black olive dip) and Margherita pizza.  The crudites are HEALTHY and the tzatziki that comes with it is very tasty.  I love the Margherita pizza: the crust and sauce are just right.  My friend ordered the Grilled Chicken Wrap and she really liked that as well.The drinks, I am told, are seasonal.  I ordered the Watermelon Lemonade-so good, so refreshing.Service was excellent all around.

My wife ordered the red fish bc salmon was sold out and she only orders fish and has had it before. The food came but the fish was covered in a red sauce and she didn’t like it, it’s different from before. She requested to change her order and chose the Penang curry, a manager came to talk to us and explained about quarterly menu changes, she was very nice and offered the sides of the salmon while my wife waited for the curry. The curry has been a favorite to our family for a couple of years but today we noticed changes and it’s no longer as authentic as before! We liked most items at TFK but these recent changes don’t work for us. More...

Co-worker suggested this place for my birthday lunch because they have vegan options. This location is at Legacy West which I'm not super familiar with. But there's also a Dallas location. I ordered the Ancient Grains bowl and added tofu. Washed it down with a watermelon lemonade. I did think the bowl needed seasoning and luckily there was salt on the table. But all in all I did enjoy the experience and healthy, real food options. I can't wait to visit again and some other vegan dishes. More...

I've been to this location 4-5x now -- mostly with my girlfriends. Most recently I had the watermelon mojito and the fish tacos. The mojito was yummy but I was expecting watermelon chunks in the drink. The tacos were ok.  We shared two desserts and both were delicious. The banana coconut chia pudding was surprisingly good. Service was good. Only complaint is that it is slightly overpriced. Park at the Target parking lot, take the elevators down and you'll be right across True Food. More...

The fall menu item - butternut squash pizza - is SO GOOD and vegan friendly! It's my FAVORITE. Went during the spring/summer menu and ordered the chorizo bowl... super tasty. Loved the freeze dried corn as an added crunch. Mmm. This place never disappoints me. There is a long wait, typically on the weekends, so expect to shop a bit while you wait for their text. More...

This restaurant does not need my help with a review. The food is very good. It is a clean eater's dream. The menue has some very tasty choices. I always say eating healthy is expensive. That is true in this case. The menu is kinda pricey. However, if you can appreciate the freshness of the food and the effort in preparation, you may be able to see why. Fresh, tasty food with a wide variety of choices, it is easy to see why this restaurant has such a good following. More...

Came here on a weekend for lunch. Not too busy when we arrive at 11am. Sat on the patio with the pooch and was greeted right away by our server. Nice atmosphere and menu had alot of selections without being overwhelming. We started off with the edamame dumplings. The broth it was laying in was seasoned with truffle oil. It was delicious and I wished I had ordered 2. Food was fresh and they had alot of options to customize.  You will find a variety of dishes to suit anyone's dietary needs here. Prices are on the higher side but that's to be expected since they are catering to the "Stanford" crowd.Our server was very charismatic and had alot of great recommendations. Bill was $120 for 4. Parking was easy if you arrive early. By the time we finished lunch, all the parking was filled and people were already circling to nab a open spot. All major credit cards accepted, reservations can also be made online. More...

Can I be honest? True Food has been one of my favorite restaurants since they popped up in my hometown of San Diego, but no matter how good the food is, the wait wasn't worth it. BUT NOW!!!!! ----- They TAKE RESERVATIONS!!!Thank you OpenTable and True Food for the brilliance of this offering. I don't take it for granted, not one bit.My annual girls weekend is all about relaxing, not having a schedule, so when we were ready to check out of our hotel and were looking for brunch on a Sunday, (um what were we thinking?! Brunch on Sunday in Dallas, that's like going to Disneyland in the middle of summer - LOOOONG wait times). We came across True Food in our Yelp map search and we all declared YES!, but realized the wait would be atrocious and almost passed when we noticed the 'make a reservation' option. UM WHAT?! Thinking it was a cruel joke, I proceeded with caution, but when OpenTable opened and there were my choices we couldn't believe our fortune.We arrived, were seated at our reservation time and even though there was a long wait and crowds of people gathered inside enjoying the a/c, our waitress not once rushed us or acted impatient. Emily served us with a smile and some yummy suggestions. Our orders were perfect and arrived hot and delicious (of course). I thoroughly enjoyed my Basil Cucumber Collins, although it was very weak in the cocktail department it was perfectly refreshing on a hot afternoon. The inside dining room was air conditioned, but not cool. Eating hot meals we were pretty warm by the time our meal ended, but it was better than eating outdoors - yikes!And just like that True Food is back on top as one of my all time favorite go-to spots for any meal!

It's fancy, trendy, delicious and you sure pay for it! I enjoyed my meal I just don't see going back for a lunch. Maybe a special dinner. I would love it if there were a lunch menu and there weren't servers.  My go to lunch places you can order and sit down to save a little money for lunch. This place even had valet parking. I splurged to try but didn't love it enough to come back for lunch. It's a nice place for a business meeting. More...

Love love LOVE this place! I almost always bring people from out-of-town here. The food is delicious, well portioned and tastes fresh. Yes, the food is mostly vegetarian and that may be off-putting for some human carnivores but it all tastes so good you won't mind. There's also the option to add a protein. The menu is seasonal so there's almost always something new to try. The setting is very nice (ask for a patio seat if you're visiting after the sun goes down). Drinks are also really good and pack a nice punch. A must visit in Pasadena. More...

This was a nice experience. It was my first time trying it based on my wife's previous visit. They have a great menu which is primarily vegetarian and vegan based but you can add protein options including tofu and chicken. They also have a burger, made from beef, which looks amazing but I did not order it. There is a nice wine and craft cocktail menu with limited beer options. However, the beer options available do pair well with many of the food items. Being a craft beer snob I'd like an IPA with one or two other seasonal options but that isn't a deal breaker. I like wine and went with the Malbec for my selection while my wife had a delicious Basil Cucumber Collins. For dinner we started with Charred Cauliflower (tahini based sauce) and Corn and Tomato Flatbread. Then we split the Spaghetti Squash Casserole - all of it was fantastic. If I were to improve one thing it would be wait time for drinks and placing our dinner order. Everything else was great, relaxed pace even though they were slammed and they timed appetizers to main course really well. If on the Plaza this is a must visit experience. More...

This place is delicious! I've been twice and both times got the inside out quinoa burger because it's just too good!! What I love about it is that one side has hummus spread and the other has a tzatziki sauce so I get a little variety. It also is a good portion size and fills me up! All the sandwich options come with a side of either a cucumber or kale salad, or sweet potato hash. I've tried all three and they're all tasty, especially the salads! They have so many drink options (including alcoholic beverages) it was hard for us to choose which to get, but this time we got the sparkling peach tea which was so refreshing. Next time I'll definitely try another tea or maybe a cocktail! The only downside is it is a little pricey, but considering how healthy and fresh the food is it makes sense. Also both times I've been it's been super crowded and the waiters were not that attentive but other than that I'm a fan! More...

The last time I went to TFK was when I was in college and visited the Newport Beach location.  I remember it being fresh, delicious, and pricey.  This past weekend's trip was no different!  Haha.The lavender iced tea had a nice herbal touch to the refreshing butterfly pea tea and soda water.  Lightly sweetened, which I liked!  My party shared the tomato and corn flatbread + pita and hummus.  Both were great, but I did favor the flatbread more.  The tomato added a nice fresh zing to the warmness of the bread and the bitterness of the arugula tied it all together.  The corn was surprisingly a nice touch of sweetness!  I felt that the pita and hummus were pretty standard and didn't really like the pita bread.As for the main dish, I was in between the panang curry and the cauliflower polenta.  I was in the mood for something savory, flavorful, and spicy (can you blame me?) so naturally, I opted for the curry with shrimp as my protein!  I enjoyed the quinoa and brown rice mix that came along with the curry, as well.  I would probably get this entrée again when visiting TFK.  I can't recall what I ordered the time I visited the NB location, but now that I've been re-introduced - I think I'll be making more trips to either this location or the one in Santa Monica!Also, our server was attentive and very helpful - which definitely had a hand in making this such a great experience.See you soon TFK xo More...

I'm rating it 4 stars because the food is always good. I've been here several times, however, last week's visit was not the best. I went during a lunch rush with two of my friends. We were seated on the outside patio at a high top table. One of my friends was already there and had been there for about 20 minutes. At that time, the waitress did not even take her drink order or provide her with water. It is hot. The least they could of done was provide her with water. After we were sat, we ordered drinks then food a couple minutes after that. What I thought was after our food was placed, I asked if our table could move behind us to a regular low table. The waitress asked the hostess and gave us the all clear to move. We moved on table away. We waited for about 30-40 minutes before the waitress came back and said that the kitchen was busy but our orders were coming out soon. I can understand a rush, however, other tables that were sat after us already had their food. Finally our food came out. Mine was wrong. The waitress blamed it on the kitchen, but I do believe she forgot to put in our order. When we got the check, I immediately put my card down and waited for her to come pick it up. She didn't. I had to walk it inside to her. All in all, I'm highly disappointed in our waitress. Usually the experience is great, but that one experience was awful. More...

Visiting Jacksonville FL from NJ. This was our first experience at a True Foods and it's been wonderful! We had dinner here one night and came back for lunch the next day. My mom is on a Vegan diet and never has choices of what to order when we go out to eat. She usually ends up with a plain salad. But at True Foods there were so many delicious choices for her! It felt like a treat for her to go out to eat! More...

Again visiting the daughter and this is her absolute favorite place to dine. I am always leery of ordering grass fed beef because I have had too many bad experiences with a gamey flavor. So she tried hard to convince me the burger was delicious there but I was stubborn and ordered a chicken sausage pizza. We started with the Kale guacamole with gluten free pita chips and we both cleaned the plate. They have got gluten free down and delicious  When our food arrived she cut off some of her burger to have me sample. OMG it was delicious. A real beefy char broiled flavor that I love. I am ordering next time. My pizza was fabulous also. The sauce was light and not too acidic. The cheese was the kind that is chewy and l I've that. The crust was excellent. All in all a very satisfying dining experience. Looking forward to my next trip to visit my daughter and indulging in a burger at True Food Kitchen More...

I loved the True Food kitchen that I visited in CA. When I realized we had a local one, I had to go there. I visited on a Saturday for a friend's birthday celebration. Maybe Saturday is not the best time to go because the place was very loud, service rushed and the food was not as good as it was at the CA location. I ordered the exact thing I ate in CA and the meal here was good but different. Not as satisfying. I will definitely return/give it another try, but not on Saturday. Definitely worth checking out. However, if you are hungry, inquire about the portion sizes. My friends had a casserole, which you would think would be generously portioned but it looked more like an appetizer than an entree. I had the bowl w protein which was generously portioned and filling. More...
