True Food Kitchen - Pasadena
This was my second visit to this location and I loved it just as I did the first time I visited. The food was amazing and fresh! Service was amazing.
Had an online reservation for 6:30 PM. Waited almost half an hour for table. Clearly reservations were not important that evening. Seated inside but when I asked if we could sit outside due to the noise we were told no even though there was one empty. Odd and left a poor impression from a fan of that restaurant at that locale
Love the many healthy options at this place! They can accommodate many different dietary needs! Relaxing to sit outside on the patio!
I love "True Food" its everything I want in a restaurant, especially the high quality ingredients
Everything we have had there has been delicious and as a bonus its all really healthy :)
The craft cocktails( and/or the non alcoholic "refreshers") are a must try!
True Food is amazing. The way they combine flavors is so unique and creative. Can’t wait to go back.
The food and service was exceptional.
I drove for Diamond Bar to meet with a friend/client. My friend/client gave me the opportunity to select and it was with out a doubt True Food Kitchen. It never disappoints.
I was disappointed with one of your host who completely ignored me. I waved her down and acknowledged me and said to give her a minute and never came by.
I disappointed because I also personally know her. Call me if you want to know who. 562-254-5555
I'm always introducing new clients/colleagues to TFP. Taking another client to TFSM on Monday.
Elevated experience, the team at True Food are living the mission and delivering the value with heart and good vibes. Our server Amanda was great and brought some extra California sunshine to our dining experience. Eating well and making a difference while doing it. Recommend highly!
We're so happy to hear that you had a great time dining with us! Amanda is a rockstar and we are lucky to have her on our team! We hope to see you again soon Cynthia!
this was the first time eating at True Food Kitchen, I ate there with my son who typically isn't a fan of vegan style food but he was able to find something to eat and enjoyed it.
We appreciate the feedback Patrick! Come back and visit us again soon!
I brought two friends who had never been to True Food Kitchen before and they were as impressed as I was on my first visit. The food is so good (but expensive) and healthy! The wait staff couldn't be nicer. It would be a nice touch if they added something small as a special occasion treat at the end of the meal.
We appreciate the feedback! And we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Their food is fantastic and innovative. We had a great time. It was hard to hear in the dining room because another group was very noisy and that room has hard surfaces. But worth it to enjoy the food! One of our favorites because it is so healthy. Our waitress was perfect -- attentive and helpful.
Thank you for stopping by! We're happy to hear that everything was great! We hope to see you again soon.
This is a fun restaurant with great variety on the menu. We took our extended family with vegan and gluten free needs. The only problem was that or teenage granddaughters ordered burgers that were too rare and had to be sent back. I think the waiter should have asked how they wanted them. Next time the granddaughters will know to make the request. I would most certainly go back.
Thank you for the feedback SteveM! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great food but long wait
Servers were helpful but didn’t seem to communicate with one another
We appreciate the feedback and we always strive to get better!
Great food Love this place; It never fails to impress!
Thank you CurtY!
We came specifically because of the 25% 4th of July discount. We were seated right away. The hostess was very helpful when we asked to be seated outside and in a specific area.
Amanda was our primary server and she is a jewel! We appreciate that the servers covered for each other so we never lacked for attention and, of course, the food was very good!
It made for a wonderful start to our Independence Day. Thanks for doing what you do and serving what you serve!
It was our pleasure to have you with us on the Fourth of July RickW! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Always delicious! Great service!
As always, True Food Kitchen from Pasadena, has the worst service from all their branches. I've been in San Diego, Santa Monica, and the service is pretty well, bus these guys from Pasadena really need to improve.
They took care of some drinks and entrees but still... you know.
Loved the patio seating. Special cocktails were great. Lots of menu choices even for vegetarians and good was wonderful!
Thank you so much for coming by Joym! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Inside was too loud. We had to move But good food and service
We very much appreciate the feedback! Thank you.
We love this restaurant for their fresh food and organic choices and love the seasonal menu changes - we visit regularly and appreciate that they have great cocktails that are on the healthy side as well. And with our range of friends - everyone can find something quality to eat here no matter what kind of lifestyle/diet they are practicing -keto/vegetarian/vegan, etc.
We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us Shalala! We hope to see you again soon.
True food kitchen has a great variety that will satisfy vegan, vegetarian, and meat eaters alike!
Thank you so much Fred! We hope to see you again soon.
The asparagus salad and charred cauliflower is the best. Skinny organic margaritas are amazing delicious made with fresh ingredients. One of my favorite places in the world
Thank you so much Jerry! Please come by and visit us again soon.
A great spot for casual, relaxed dining. Not as crazy about the quinoa burger but always love your veggies, humus and wine!!!
Thank you Kitkat for coming by! We hope you visit us again soon.
The food still tastes good but the portions have shrunk so much since our last visit. The service was below par, the chairs were oily and table was not clean. It was my favorite restaurant but this experience will keep me away for a while.
The food here is so fantastic! The pizzas are particularly excellent.
Thank you so much!
Sofia is absolutely delightful! She was super friendly, sincere, and knowledgeable with the menu. She was also very patient with us, since we had different dietary restrictions. She really made our visit to True Food a wonderful experience! In fact, the Pasadena True Food has the best service among the other two True Food Kitchens I've been to (Denver, El Segundo). Big thank you to Sofia!
It's so great to hear that you had a wonderful experience with us! We are very lucky to have Sofia on our team! We hope to see you again soon.
Overall "Good" for casual dining. The biggest flaw would be the noise level in the indoor dining area. We went for dinner and sat in the indoor dining area. The talking noise level is extremely loud. We had to speak very loudly to one another at our table in order to hear what was being said. I was actually warned about that from a friend of mine and it turned out to be so true. It's obviously the acoustics within that dining room, needs work.
Food was good. Service was ok (unfortunately our waitress was not too happy to be there). I will go back but request outdoor seating.
Great food, tasteful combinations you would not expect but delicious. Quiet upscale crowd, nice mix of young and old. Service was superb and quick. Definitely would return.
Very good food! The services is excellent,
They are friendly and always ready what the client need.
Thank you for the kind words Tita!
Another great visit for HH with exemplary service.
Thank you Pat!
The food is overpriced for what you get. The service was mediocre at best. The wait time for our food was unacceptable. The noise level was ridiculous, we could barely hear what someone at our table was saying - must be something with the acoustics.
LAST time I will be going to True Food Kitchen!
Birthday celebration. Really good healthy food and The Key Lime Mousse was the best!!
Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us Lynda!
Great experience as always the food was amazing. And our server had provided a wonderful time.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Love their Happy Hour now on top of their great food menu and service! Everything on the HH was delicious and we had the margaritas then ordered the mushroom veggie pizza which was delish. Great service as always so will now start coming more and spreading the word.
It's great to hear that you're in love with our Happy Hour! Thanks again Pat!
black coffee was expensive; cobb salad and mushroom spinach pizza...excellent,
Thank you Aitabemashoo! We greatly appreciate the feedback!
Food delicious & health. Service good. Noisy, even on the patio.
Thanks for stopping by! We greatly appreciate the feedback.
Hard to hear, very loud during dinnertime. Appetizer avocado dip with kale, black bean dip & hummus, pretty good. My chicken dish sauteed was a bit spicy, dessert of vanilla ice cream with chocolate cake was great. Definitely healthily stop.
We greatly appreciate the feedback!
We had a wonderful Father’s Day dinner there!
We're so happy to hear that you had a great Father's Day dinner! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We were seated 10 minutes after our reservation time, as if it was normal. We were seated on the edge of the outside courtyard, essentially outside. It was cold, drafty, and while some people may like that, we did not. I said to the hostess that it was too cold twice, maybe three times, and she did not respond. We ordered 4 items. Hot water, Asparagus salad, Salmon, and the "grass-fed" burger (no mayo). Water was served within 10 minutes. Then came the burger and salmon 30 minutes later. No Asparagus. I mentioned to the waiter that I had ordered the asparagus and he said he would get it. I told him that it was too late. The burger did not have mushrooms, which it was supposed to have, and as a person who grew up on a cattle farm, this was the second worst hamburger taste ever in my probably 55 years of eating burgers. I ordered medium, it was well done. Dry, tasteless, and lacking in texture. It was at times hard to tell that it was beef. Bad breed, poorly cooked. My wife liked everything except the salmon, which I tasted and agreed. It was not a good quality fish, so no perfection of preparation could remedy that. The cucumber salad was good. I would like to give them another try, but there are so many more options for the area, that I really doubt that they will get one. Union is great. Even the burger at The Blind Donkey is way better for 40 percent less price. If you don't get quality fish, why bother? Fish Wives has that, Osawa has that et cetera.
