Went here for my dad's bday and the food was so good! The staff are so nice as well. The jackfruit wraps were amazing
This was my first time eating out since COVID-19 and True Food Kitchen is being very cautious and thorough about their processes. I appreciate the efforts they are making to keep everyone safe!
Hi NIsha, We appreciate you! Very happy to read that you felt safe dining here, that is our first priority! Hope to see you soon for patio seating!
Always love coming here and always have great service! Definitely recommend it and will be back!
It was the first LA restaurant we’ve dined in during COVID-19. Fabulous as usual! The True Foods team is working hard to welcome everyone back safely. Really superb effort.
Thank you for the comments!!
Waitress was good so it was sound
I have been here 3 times. The fresh fruit drinks are fantastic. I ordered the Korean Noodles. The texture was fine but the sauce was over powered by the chili which prevented me from enjoying the noodles and vegetables in the dish. I am used to eating spicy foods but this had too much.
Thank you Carmen, We are reviewing this dish to make sure it is executed properly. I appreciate you letting us know! Thank you
I came here when they opened years ago and I was blown away. Such great food! I talk about this place all the time for over a decade The service is impeccable. Despite the working conditions with masks and the stress Of pandemic, the servers, bus boys, the hostess. Everybody was top notch. I guess I’m sad because I can’t order the kale salad and all the other great stuff on the menu. I appreciate the effort but the set menu was a little disappointing. Although I ordered the salmon and it was off the charts delicious.! Can’t wait till regular menu comes back
Good Afternoon! We are excited to be back to our full menu soon too. Working through the supply issues has been a challenge but we should be on track soon enough! (Including the Kale Salad!!) Thank you for returning and we are excited to see you soon enough.
I had the grass fed burger and my daughter ordered the shrimp tacos. Both were excellent. Still getting used to the new social distancing and mask rules but it was a very nice lunch.
Very very good food & very very friendly service!
What a boomer . Used to be one of my fav restaurants ever. Was so excited to return after covid . Super limited menu, food was meh and service was awful .
Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to write your review. We are having difficulty sourcing a lot of our fresh ingredients and felt it best to make a select menu of the offerings we are confident we can provide at this time. An expanded menu will be starting Wednesday. Secondly, I want to get more thoughts on your service. We adjusted our steps of service to limit table contact. I think your actionable feedback would be very valuable. Please let me know. Thank you
Healthy food options, great craft cocktails. Service at the bar is impeccable!!
Goo d service, good drinks, edible, healthy but mediocre food
Friends and family dinner get together was wonderful at True Food.
Thank you for sharing your family with us! Wonderful to read.
This place always has great ambiance. The price is slightly high but the portions are exactly what you need to eat and nothing more which is very interesting.
Wonderful food, healthy and appetizing, staffed by folks who aim to please. We got lots of attention. How nice to eat at a place that serves filtered water because that's all they have!
Thank you so much!!
Very nice 👍 yummy & healthy. Great vibe, but a bit loud. Many choices. Need more desserts ☺️
Good food, everybody was happy. I also liked the fact that you can order a table for large groups (there were 13 of us!) without having a set group menu and everybody could order individually.
Absolutely fantastic feedback. Thank you Anna!
Always great- outstanding manager
Our server was very kind and patient with us. The food was wonderful.
We had delicious healthy food. Everything was presented beautifully. Thanks for the great service!
Loved lunch outside. Service was thoughtful. Server proactively offered to move us over to a shaded table. Well-paced service. Food was delicious. Crudite was fresh and crunchy though price was outlandish. Other menu items made more price/quality sense. I would go back.
True Food is my favorite restaurant in Santa Monica
Great food. Healthy choices. Great service. Highly recommend it.
Healthy food selection with a full bar! What more can you ask for? I've been to both here and the Pasadena location and will return again and again!
Can't wait to see you soon!!
A little noisy but good service and food
One of the dishes was not cooked correctly so we sent it back to be remade. Service was a bit slow with remaking the dish. By the time it came back out, everyone else was done eating. The dish was removed from the bill though which was nice. Besides that, waitress was amazing and the food was delicious.
Sorry to read about the missteps, but glad to read you enjoyed the rest of your experience. Thank you!
We checked in with the hostess @ 7:37PM whom messed up our reservation (7:45PM) we ended up waiting to be seated after 8PM. Apparently the excuse was a mix up with someone taking the seat when they called my name. I’ve had a reservation to notice ppl had been walking in and seated, my reservation was not honored and missed. I’ve had to walk up, again to remind the hostess and a few excuses for this.
I’ve made an order with the waitress, as I change the order from the hummus to the fig flatbread, we end up getting both.
We sat behind the busy kitchen, where every 20 seconds, I can hear a man from the kitchen say “next please”. The restaurant has a cafeteria vibe, where the couple seated beside us had looked over at our dish while we had eaten. Loud, felt rush to order and go, opted out of main course.
The place is a fast pace establishment, food was good!! Other than the disorganized female hostess, lucky the male hostess was able to get us seated.
Healthy delicious bites. Recommend Fig Flatbread, the hummus order was good for a hotel snack. I would eat there for an express lunch bite, not for dinner. The prices was fair...the waitress made an error in omitting the hummus order, she should have taken care of it. I’ve decided to bring hummus back as a take out, so the starter dish was not wasted. It was a delicious hummus with a bit of spice.
Thank you for providing your experience, you definitely have given us some insight that we can use to do better next time. Thank you!
We are a family with various diets and there was something for everyone, very tasty dishes and the service was excellent.
Thank you Tom!
Had a great Valentines dinner here! Awesome food and great service
Thank you for sharing your Valentine's Day with us!
Love the food (satisfies Vegans and Meat Lovers), love the drinks and love the service ❤️
Thank you Debra!
Great food and service was excellent!
Thank you Valerie!~!
Imaginative menu items that seeming very natural, made from freshest ingredients, and most importantly taste great. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic service. We are long-time Santa Monicans, but this was our first time here. Easy BBB Line 7 or R7 ride from our home in Sunset Park area.
Our group had an excellent dinner - vegetarians included. Everyone was happy with their entrees. The Brussels Sprouts appetizer was great. Service was efficient and unobtrusive.
Thank you Lewis!
Celebrated a birthday
It was the first time there for me and my two friends celebrating my birthday. We were excited by the healthy versions of some popular dinners. We had the edamame guacamole with house made pita chips, turkey lasagna, burger and Margherita pizza. Even the drinks were delicious. We tried the juniper rose cocktails and Rx juice.
I’ll definitely be back here!
Love to see you soon!
I love that place. Mandatory stop every time I travel to LA. Very healthy and surprising food.
INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you
First time. Was very good. Ate the Ancient Grains bowl. Enjoyed it and the restaurant very much.
Very busy February Saturday afternoon in Santa Monica; we were welcomed by a friendly, cool,
intelligent server named Kenny. Outstanding first courses included homemade creamy Tomato soup, and fresh from the
garden salads with 8-10 different veges in it.
Mains were superb with Salmon for some and Seabass for others. Light and tasty sauces were they key here.
Exceedingly fresh fish were wonderful and were cooked perfectly.....just a tad "underdone" making it
juicier and more flavorsome.
Young blonde hostess with movie-star looks was most friendly and informative.
Prices were very reasonable for the... SUPERB quality. Healthy ingredients are the difference maker, thankfully
Looks like you ordered some great dishes!! Thank you for giving us feedback on how much you enjoyed them!
