Despite of having reservation at 7:30 pm, we waited for 20 min to be seated. That was unacceptable. What’s the point of making reservation ?
Our server was so nice. Food was good too.

I haven’t eaten out much since the pandemic. My son and his girlfriend visited us from SF and we wanted a safe, clean space with healthy food to bring my 86 year old mom. Our table was on the patio near the back. We were safely distanced from other guests. Menu was online. Servers were properly covered and food was amazing. Great experience overall and we felt safe at all times.

Our waitress was great- we felt bad for her bc it appeared she was the only person assigned to our section. Which equaled slow service. But not her fault.

pleasant place but based on what we ate cirrently the food is all made ahead and microwaved for tour pleasure. the meat in my steak taco was dried and looked like it was from the last century. basically inedible. i ate here before covid and it was food but now...

I’ve been to this restaurant plenary of times in the past. However, this was the first visit since COVID and I was a little disappointed with the service. Once seated at the table the hostess did not mention the scan menu which was fine since I’ve been dining at other restaurants with the same protocol now. What bothered me about the service was that there was a paper and pencil on the table which was never explained what it was for. My waiter kept passing by, making eye contact with me but never offered any water or explanation as to how ordering food or beverages were meant to be placed. Finally after flagging him down to place our order did he tell me the new ordering process. Which is all fine and not a big deal. Only it was in my case since I was having lunch with my cousin that day and we both have anxious toddlers under the age of 3 and anyone with toddlers knows meals and ordering need to happen very quickly at restaurants.

Love the place and food is amazing. They had to turn the misters off so we kinda of baked in the sun for last half.
I would come here more often but I’m always a little surprised by how high the bill is. $72 plus tip for munch for two (no alcohol) is pricey. The food is really yummy tho!!

Hate to post this review because I don't want this great place to be overfilled. It has a very large covid-19 patio for dining. Some areas even have mist sprayers and in 100+ heat that is nice. Food good, service good. Only ding was they didn't have the brand of beer in stock that was on their menu. I will go back again.

We love True Food! Their patio dining is superb, even though it was a warm day by the time we arrived for our 6:30 pm reservations the patio was very pleasant. The food was good as always and the service too! We get there once or twice a month and see no reason not to continue enjoying the True Food experience.

We waited less than 10 minutes for a table. Good thing we had rezzies because there were over 20 people waiting. Everyone was very friendly and service was excellent. Food is always good. The ancient grain bowl and shrimp tacos are my favs. Nice healthy pour of wine. Great outdoor patio socially distant seating. A must in these times. Not on the street with cars whizzing by. Best patio seating Old Town!!!

Yes, I recommend True Food Kitchen to anyone who has allergies to foods. I am on the AIP diet, and like most people who are AIP, it is hard to find any places to eat. With some research, I was able to see that True Food Kitchen not only serves food that I can eat, but they also accommodated me, my sister, brother, and mom. The staff was friendly and very accomodating of our needs.
