We were seating in a table near the pick up entrance and the door was really noisy and made our meal very uncomfortable.

I appreciate the wonderful staff at True Food. Before and now, their staff has been and is wonderful. We love the outdoor seating. The summer drinks are delish, but the food is lacking. Nineteen dollars for two steak tacos with a unpleasant tasting side salad is over the top price-wise. The flat bread, however, is always good. Their menu these days is limited. My birthday deserrt was very tastey. Even though their food is not generally the best, the other factors will bring me back every time.

This was my first time back in a restaurant since the CV-19 stay at home order and it wa s a great experience at True Food. There is the option for inside or outside seating. I actually chose inside because the majority of customers were sitting outside and the distance between customers was way larger inside. The food of course was delicious. I had the ancient grains bowl with shrimp and a refreshing margherita. And the edamame appetizer was delicious as well. All the staff wore masks and they were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely highly recommend!

The menu is simple, but gives you a handful of great choices. While a quinoa teriyaki bowl might sound somewhat plain, it was delicious! Every vegetable was cooked perfectly and the blends of the tastes were wonderful. The custom limeade was so refreshing. We had friendly service from the host stand until checking out, great restaurant!

Dining during COVID is very different. The staff all wear masks. Servers wear gloves to bring your food. Menus are all disposable paper and only about half of the full menu is available. With the 50% capacity limit, the noise level is significantly lower than usual. We’ve dined there in the past and it was very loud and over-stimulating. So this was a nice change. There also wasn’t the usual long wait for a table because there are fewer patrons in general at the moment. It’s pricey but you generally get what you pay for as the food is always delicious.

My only complaint this time is that the kitchen messed up my order and put mozzarella cheese on my flatbread even though I had specified a food allergy to cow’s milk based dairy. Luckily I noticed the cheese on there before I ate any. It took awhile to get the waiter back to the table and have it corrected, but they remade my order correctly the second time.

The restaurant was hot and humid, no ac was on bc the the outside doors were open. The server was wearing wet gloves, the spacing out of tables wasn’t optimal because there was empty space not being used. The food was okay, nothing special.

Hello- Thank you for the feedback. I apologize the temperature in the restaurant was not to your liking. We like to leave the doors open to limit the number of high-frequency contact areas. We also do the table spacing to abide by the 6ft spacing requirements, and to ensure the safety of our guests and staff! We are hoping to get back to normal soon, and we hope you will join us again!
