Service was timely, food delicious and you did not even get any feel of Covid restrictions! Well done.
Amazing service. Apps were outstanding. Main courses were decent.
True Food was a great way to social distance and eat outside. They took care to keep tables at least 6 feet apart and had hand sanitizer readily available. The salads are always tasty and unusual.
Great alfresco spot with seating off the sidewalk. Service was attentive and personal. Good and healthy food!
Very good food, on the healty side but with options for every taste to choose.
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Food is always healthy and fresh. Staff are always friendly too!
Thank you for the great review!
The quinoa Teriyaki dish hardly has any quinoa.
Thank you for the feedback. I will share this with our chef. If you wouldn't mind calling me at the restaurant I would like to discuss how we can make this up to you?
Great vegan options... Delicious flavors
Thank you, we are thrilled that you enjoyed your meal so much!
Always love the food and ambiance. Fresh healthy choices but pretty overpriced for the meat add ons. I feel like you go for the chill vibes with some healthy tasty options. Expect to spend though.
Thank you Rachelle!
The service is great and the seasonal drinks were delicious. We only had apps. The flat bread was amazing but the edamame guacamole was not the best.
We are regulars at true food. My daughter and I both commented we didn’t know if there was a new shop or something had changed with the cooking. We order the new appetizer the lettuce wrap made with jackfruit. It was very salty.
I ordered the shrimp tacos in a lettuce wrap. There were two small tacos and nothing really on the side except a small side of lettuce. A far change from their fish taco that used to be on the menu.
I feel like the prices have gone up the portions have gone down and so has the quality of the food. The concept of the restaurant is amazing and it used to be one of our favorite spots for lunch or a quick dinner.
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your recent experience. We do have the same Chef but these are both new items to the menu. We want to make sure everyone leaves feeling that there was value in what they ordered. If you could please give me a call at the restaurant I would like to hear more details and see what we can do to fix this going forward.
Really good and healthy options. Great for Vegan and gluten free options!
I love true food but this time was not their best effort. We asked for gluten-free pitas and we’re given regular pita chips. After we asked multiple times the waiter finally came back and said that he did accidentally give us regular. Could’ve been a big issue had we eating them without questioning him. Our bill was incorrect, our pizza was not cut all the way through. Lots of issues and I’m hoping they work through this challenging time because it’s one of my favorite restaurants.
We are sorry to hear about your recent experience. The feedback is help and we will helpful feedback like this as a guide so we can ensure standards don't slip below what you have come to expect from us. I would like the opportunity to make this up to you. If you could give me a call at the restaurant I would like to set up your next reservation and we will make sure the next visit will be better.
Samantha, our server, was extremely professional and aware of our needs while maintaining new standards.
Thank you. We think Samantha is amazing and are happy to hear you agree!
Great service, very clean, social distance guidelines in place
Thank you Annet, we are happy to hear you had such a great experience and feel comfortable at the same time.
Great ”re-opening” experience. Everything was excellent. Food, service, spacing of the tables. We felt very comfortable.
Thank you for the kind words. We are doing our best to provide a safe comfortable environment for both our guests and our staff. It makes us happy to hear that we were able to do this for you.
Thank you Matthew!
Always great and attentive service ...drinks and food fresh and tasty. Outdoor option is such a treat.
Thank you for the great review!
Unfortunately, the lettuce in my lunch salad was wilted and even slimy in spots. Not appetizing at all. Outdoor seating could have been better with the addition of flowering plants in the planters next to the tables, and street noise made conversation difficult. Overall, not the experience I used to enjoy at TFK.
Julie, I am you had such a bad experience. I will share your feedback about your food with our Chef and I know he will address it the correctly ASAP. We are working on finding something to put in the planter boxes outside to make it more appealing. Finally we can't wait until local government allows us to start seating the dining room so you and other guests can sit inside away from all the noise from the street. I would like to offer you another meal on us as an attempt to make this up to you.
Food was good. Servers and other employees were nice. Only issue was that hostess had her mask pulled down below her nose at all times and sometimes below her mouth, too. This is not acceptable during COVID times and especially not when all customers need to wear mask (I am happy to do this) but you are speaking with and seated by someone who doesn't have their mask on properly. Hopefully mgmt. will correct this.
Thank you for the feedback. Although we are happy to hear your service and food were great, we are truly sorry for the host not wearing her face mask properly. Keeping all guests and staff safe is important and this will be addressed ASAP.
Food was excellent... We thoroughly enjoyed the charred cauliflower, then the winter immunity bowl with chicken... The food is so good, clean & awesome taste... Service was perfect... Thank you True Food Kitchen you guys are truly awesome... I wish you were in mu hometown - I'd be their everyday!
Kevin, you are way too kind! Seriously... Thank YOU! I know you can't be here everyday, but I hope we can see you soon! Have a great week!
Food is delicious. The ancient grain bowl was my favorite. Specialty cocktail list also really good. Love the vibe/decoration in the restaurant, it is thoughtfully designed. Tenny took care of us and is a wonderful person.
Thank you for the great review!! We think Teny is amazing and are happy to hear you agree.
Great preparation. Greatbtaste
Thank you for the 5 star review!!
Great spot. Super food and wonderful wait staff. Would go again!
Thanks a million Phillip! We can't wait to have you back! Cheers!
Great food and ambience. Service was excellent. Will come again!
Thank you Caro. We hope to see you again soon!
Great time with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. Always love coming to this lovely restaurant.
Thank you Marina. We are happy to hear you had such a great experience. We are looking forward to taking care of you and your friends again soon.
This is one of my favorite spots in the city.
Mine too! Thanks so much for the love!
We had fantastic service from a trainee called Steven, who was attentive to our hungers and thirsts but had a light touch for checking in. Food great too.
Thanks for the great review! I will be sure to let Steven know about this review. I know he'll be excited to see it. Have a great week!
Really enjoyed this restaurant! Have been once before but went back this time with my family who is visiting. Service was great and everyone seemed to like their food!
Only complaint might be the dessert (flourless cake), which seemed a little dry, but other than that it was a great experience!
Hey Meghan! Thank you so much for bringing your family in to eat. I am really happy you loved everything. Also, thanks for letting us know about the chocolate cake. It is usually not dry, so I will forward this to my chefs so they can ensure we are making them correctly. Have a great week, and we look forward to you visiting us again!
Service was terrific. Really good, healthy fare.
Lunch with a friend. We enjoyed the 2 appetizers we ordered, flat bread and cauliflower. I enjoyed my 1/2 bowl ancient grain with salmon. My friend had the beet burger and was not wowed by it. Service was slow but realize they were having a shift change. All were very gracious and helpful.
Hi Barbara! Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I don't think shift change should be an excuse for slow service, so I will be sure to work on that with the team. I really appreciate you letting us know! I hope to see you again soon! Have a great week!
We experienced extremely long wait times for our food when we had guests in town last month, but decided to come back to meet a local friend for lunch who lived nearby. After writing a review after the last experience, True Food Kitchen's Assistant GM reached out to personally apologize for the experience and encouraged us to contact him if we dined there again. We did and the GM, Brian, made sure to stop by during our most recent visit. Our experience was great and Brian made sure to take care of our party. It's very refreshing to see an organization do everything they could to turn around a less than stellar experience. Mistakes and off days certainly happen, so we appreciate when a group can recover and make sure to create a good experience going forward. Food was great and service was great also including for our young son.
I am Vegan and was joined by a Carnivore. I had the Winter Immunity bowl and he had the Beet burger. Both of us loved our meals!
Ratings for food and overall would have been 5 stars if the food had been served hot. My soup base bowl and the tomato soup for my dining partner were both dissatisfying lukewarm. Both were delicious but soup should be hot, not lukewarm, especially on a cold winter day. Our server was friendly and helpful when answering our questions about menu items.
Thanks for letting us know about the soup. I agree that it should be hot. We will be sure to get that right on your next visit. We hope to see you soon!
This was my 4th time there 6 weeks. The food was delicious - as always!
Thanks so much AnaMaria! I love meeting regulars. Please say hello next time you are in! Joel Ryan Assistant General Manager
This place is excellent in all respects, we really enjoyed the delicious food and they have so many options. Easily satisfied my vegan wife and the seafood lover in me, all of it was amazing. The service was also fantastic, very fun and attentive but not overly so. Highly recommend!
What an awesome review!!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know how much you and your wife enjoyed everything! We hope to see you again soon!
This was my first time dining here and was food was delicious. I will definitely return and recommend to others. The guacamole is a winner!
Thanks so much Alice! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Excellent food and service
I would highly recommend this restaurant
Thank you so much, Hector!
Get the bowl!
Food was great, service was great (my waiter wasn't the best, he wasn't bad, but was just okay), everyone else gave great service. Music was nice.
Thank you for the great review!
