I’ve been here many times and have always loved it...but I was really embarrassed/concerned by the experience this time. I brought a friend and had told her how awesome it was going to be.

My favorite edamame dumplings is supposed to come with 5 dumplings—they gave us one less than comes with it. So I asked for a replacement. They brought it. Then after we ate it, we saw the original dish had a hair. Yuck but nothing we could do at that point.

Then after we waited a while, we observed as our food was brought by someone who wasn’t our server to a neighboring table and placed on that table. The people who got it almost ate it. Luckily the people didn’t touch it because we had to override our natural disgust response when the man lifted the dishes to pass them to us.

It was awkward, we we hungry and grossed out, and it was super embarrassing to me how unsanitary the place had become.

We had a nice server and none of this was his fault. But for the price, I expect a little more attention to the customers experience of the place as clean. I’ll wait a while before returning here again because I know they used to be good. If they improve, I’ll add another review.

If you've got dietary restriction this restaurant would be a great option. I felt that the portions were a little too small for the price. The food was good, not great. The prices for drinks were average.

The food was amazing as always but the service was horrible. Not sure if our waitress was having a bad night but it took forever for her to come to our table. Then after that it was a long time for drinks and didn’t even bring plates to our table for our apps. The manager finally saw we were looking for her and bought us plates and apologized. After that we saw her once more and then she gave us our bill. I wouldn’t want her again if I went back and I’ll remember her name.

Food was good, service was pitiful and the waitstaff was not attentive at all. Had to ask twice for our drinks then eventually 4 of 5 dinners arrived. We had eaten half of our food when the 5th dinner came. It was not as ordered. Then the manager brought what he thought was the correct dinner but it was rice instead of quinoa. And to add insult to injury we were seated right in front of the door which opened to a cold wind constantly. We’ve been there several times and always enjoyed it but service has certainly deteriorated to point that I doubt we’ll go back.

We enjoyed the food and waiter was nice but service (checking back) was too long so sat and waited for drinks and check too long. Also we wanted to see the football game and were happy we were in the back room but then found out the tv didn’t show the game. Still a nice evening though. Food was great.

The experience was great. The edamame dumplings were superb. They are the absolute best starter. We then ate Chopped Salads with chicken and they were phenomenal. During the meal, we shared a bottle of Pinot Noir which was poured and refilled by our server throughout the night, and it was the perfect end to a great meal. We love this place and will be back soon.

The service was excellent, the food not. Glass of wine was flat, glass of rose champagne ok. Butternut squash soup delicious as were the Edamame Dumplings. Both the salmon and sea bass were overcooked in the Thai Coconut Sea Bass and Grilled Salmon.

Server seemed very new to the industry and didn’t get the concept of drinks, apps, wine dinner and the proper timing and order of those things. Managers were great when I contacted them!

Team work dinner and everyone else was new to True Food Kitchen. We all loved how great the vegetables tasted and being able to eat a great tasting dish without it being heavy and making you sluggish for the rest of the day.
Can’t beat the Ancient grains bowl or the roasted Brussel sprouts.

Prices were on the high side, but the food was delicious and had high quality ingredients. Look at the menu before you go and the fact that the prices aren't on there says a lot! Entrees were about $20 per plate, plus a starter, and 1 glass of wine for the 3 of us. $120 (including tip). We had a bit of sticker shock! We will go back, but we'll know in advance what it will cost!
