Very Enjoyable Experience!
We visited True for Mother's Day brunch. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The service was great and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. There was a good variety of brunch offerings and everyone in our party found something they liked. The food arrived very quickly, the portions were very large, and each item tasted wonderful! We were all very happy with the experience and will make it a point to return!

We had a group of 7 people and everyone raved about their dish. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and fresh. We tried a variety of things from the menu and nothing was a disappointment! We will definitely be back when we are in Montgomery!!!!

Good, not great
I wanted to rave about this place, but find that the most I can muster is a "nice place for a quiet dinner with a very pleasant wait staff."
It would be nice to have at least one lighter meal on the menu, particularly on hot summer nights.
Our waiter was very personable, but we were disappointed that he didn't offer to refill our wine and that we were not asked about dessert, which we would have ordered. This was my first time there -- maybe True doesn't offer dessert?

We had enjoyed a lovely lunch and decided to choose True for our anniversary. We were given complimentary wine for our celebration and that was a most lovely thing. Chef True and his wife came to our table and we had an enjoyable chat about the delicious food as well as possible shared ancestry. Overall if was a perfect evening for our 20th anniversary.

Our new favorite!
True has a delicious, fresh from the garden menu. Our favorite salad is the carrot and beet, and everyone at the table claimed their meal to be the best. The service is outstanding.

Birthday dinner for my sister.
Saturday was my sister's 75th birthday & I wanted to take her somewhere very special & True fit my wish perfectly! The whole experience was delightful. Our service was great as well as our food! We ordered strawberry salad, hanger steak with potatoes & pureed sauces. It was great! For dessert, we both had a creme brulee & it was divine! And I can't forget about the bread, my sister said it reminded her of the bakeries in Germany while they were stationed there.We thoroughly enjoyed our evening & I will have to take her back next year! Her dessert was free too because it was a special occasion! Thank you Wesley True for a Great Evening!

Great food and service!
We went for my wife birthday and we had a great
experience. Food was very good. I had the shrimp
and grits. The shrimp were cook perfectly and the
grits were creamy well seasoned.

Second time and just as amazing
Second time and just as amazing as the first! It is THE BEST food, period! I've eaten numerous, high scale places and Chef True's food is the best! The place is wonderful and warm, the staff are very knowledgeable! All around wonderful dining experience! Go see for yourself!
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great experience. Had clients out for dinner and was thoroughly impressed with everything. I would recommend to anyone!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was very good. I especially liked that they had schnitzel on the menu. Wish it had been pan fried instead of deep-fried. We enjoyed our experience there very much.

One Year Anniversary
We had previously been to True for Valentine's Day and had such a good experience, that we returned for our one year wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. They accommodated my wife who is pregnant, with an exquisite non alcoholic cocktail. The waitress actually remembered us from 4 months earlier. For appetizer, we shared fried oysters with 3 different sauces- a slight bit too much breading but otherwise delicious. My wife has an amberjack entree while I partook of a teres major steak with asparagus puree. Again, the food was delicious and for an amazing price. We certainly plan to continue to patronize this restaurant.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
True was truly wonderful!
I took a group of business partners to True the other evening and the experience exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly and informative, the chef came and spoke to us and most importantly, the food was truly outstanding. I'll be back very soon.

Another Great Find in Montgomery
My wife and I had lunch at True. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. My wife had the cheese spread appetizer with their house-made crackers. Warning: It is quite good but enough for sharing. I had the tomato bisque; Chef True has a way with herbs...it was superb. My wife had the shrimp and grits and pronounced them among the best she has ever eaten. I had the fish of the day, a generous portion of grouper on a bed of fresh corn sauce with a side of arugala lightly dressed...creative and satisfying! The service was friendly and attentive. My only criticism would be of the piped music: I love rock and roll, but not with lunch and not so loud. How about some soft jazz instrumentals? We definitely plan to return...soon!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
All good but one item
The waiter warned us that the salmon special at $14 was small, so I didn't feel like I should complain, but a better adjective might have been tiny. Everything else was excellent, and we left satisfied on our 43rd anniversary.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service has improved greatly
The service has improved greatly from when they first opened.

Great birthday dinner
We had 6:45 pm reservations. As we entered the restaurant we walked by a table of people sharing drinks at a table outside, at least several of whom had walked to the restaurant from their homes nearby. The restaurant was quiet, but people kept coming in as we enjoyed a slowish dinner. At one table of 6 women, one of the women was overly loud, but aside from that the atmosphere was most pleasant. Our appetizers were excellent, but my Black Grouper en Papillote was absolutely succulent.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience
We had a wonderful time here - the food was the best I have tasted in a restaurant in Montgomery. The flavours were wonderful, without being too overpowering. Excellent service and our waitress was attentive without being intrusive - a perfect combination! Would definitely dine here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a special dining experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A real gem in Old Cloverdale.
We wanted a nice dining experience in Montgomery before a show. They were able to provide delicious food and excellent food for a wonderful start to our evening. Best part was the sour dough bread- crispy crust like you find in NYC or Europe. Highly recommended!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is rare that I would say my dining experience was "Perfect" but honestly dinner last Saturday was pretty perfect indeed. We had great service, Johnny was very attentive but not intrusive. Food was cooked well and seasoned to my liking. All ingredients were fresh and food came out piping hot. I am excited to go back for another great dinner. Thanks Chef and waitstaff for a great experience.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Meal In a While
True was wonderful Saturday night experience. My wife and I had dinner with friends and everyone left talking about their meal. I enjojoyed the Shrimp Lettuce Wraps as a small plate and the GULF SEAFOOD EN PAPILLOTE as a large plate. Have heard the CRAWFISH BEIGNETS are spectacular as well. True has in a short time become easikly one of the best resturants in the city.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great Lunch!
This has become our go-to restaurant when we are in Montgomery for lunch. We both had the tomato bisque; wife had the chicken schnitzel, I had the grouper. All was delicious. Chef True knows how to bring out the flavors in his dishes. We had a nice bottle of Maysara Pinot Blanc...th Momtazi family makes great wine! The wait staff is always efficient and friendly...nicely informal. But I will say it AGAIN...PLEASE PLAY A NICE QUIET JAZZ ON THE PANDORA INSTEAD OF ROCK AND ROLL. It's too loud with lunch; save it for the late bar scene.
8/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
We cook AND eat out a lot. We are sensitive to salt, noise, bad service. The food was tasty, fresh, creative..the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing..and the server was knowledgeable but not overbearing. We would definitely return. My husband had the pork belly which initially sounded gross to me but it was superb. My grouper was as if just caught. Salad was fresh, tasty, not too filling or too much. Fresh veges from local garden were used throughout the meal.The cheese plate was simple yet creative and different than most. The peppers were surprisingly delicious. Coconut cream pie was good, but we would order something different next time.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I visited True recently while spending time in Montgomery. I can not say enough about this restaurant. The food was excellent, the prices reasonable, the vibe chic and the service was top notch. I love that the food came from local sources. The beef from Selma as wonderful. The seafood from the Gulf was super. The beer from Gadsdon was delicious! Again, I can not praise them enough... Loved it!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was very impressive
Our server was very impressive with her knowledge of the menu and wine selection
Appetizers and entries were served at correct time
Support staff was. On time
We will refer and return
Complements on the use of local foods
Just a suggestion. Shrimp and Grits could have used more seasoning
Snapper Almondine needed more seasoning.
Overall food was excellent
Loved the crawfish beignets !!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, great service
Excellent food, great service ! Wesley and his wife, Bobbi, are gracious hosts who obviously enjoy serving great dishes in a wonderful atmosphere. Thanks !!!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we had was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The staff was attentive and seemed to really care. I will go back very soon and I hope many times.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My first time dining at TRUE
My first time dining at TRUE was amazing. It was my birthday, and my guest and I were given complimentary wine, which was phenomenal!!!! I cannot remember the name of my waitress, but she was very kind and definitely made me feel welcomed. The cox farm burger is so tasty; the Boursin cheese really brings out the flavor in the burger.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect in every way
This spot provided the perfect end to a busy week, We came early -- plenty of parking and tables available. We started out window shopping a few of the nearby boutiques, followed by a beer next door at Pine Bar before heading in for our meal. The staff was extremely friendly (and not snobbily pretentious friendly), answered our questions completely, and served us well. I also liked the blend of down-home south and cosmopolitan elegance. This is a wonderful place for both the comfort of treating yourself to a fine meal, and also the pizazz of dinner out for a special occasion. We will be back as often as possible.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always excellent and the service very good.

Fresh Seafood with a Local Flare
Love this place!
We are new in town and have visited True 3 times. Shrimp and grits are great. Scallops with okra (other times polenta) are terrific as well. The best in show though are the Crawfish Beignets. Outstanding. Salads and veggies are local and fresh. Good beer selection with local choices as well. Wine list is extensive.
Take your Foodie Friends. Enjoy locovore ingredients with a Montgomery flavor!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never found really good restaurants when passing thru before. Not the case anymore. TRUE was a wonderful find. In a really cute area with several bars and restaurants that look very upscale. Food was outstanding and the service was just as outstanding. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return when back in Montgomery. I highly recommend it and we are VERY critical of restaurants.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't wait to go back!
My husband and I really enjoyed True. The food and service were great! We plan on making True one of our definite date spots.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were visiting Montgomery,
We were visiting Montgomery, weekend get-away and made a reservation at True. Having gotten caught up in other activities we were late making our reservation time, we called and the staff were very friendly, courteous and obliging in moving our reservation. We were of course, still late and still the staff attended to us in a friendly, courteous and obliging manner. The entire experience was incredible, the staff recommendations were accurate and easily obtained, the meal was beautifully presented, unique combinations of complimentary flavors, outstanding really. A highlight in our weekend get-away!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had pleasure of dining at True on Tuesday and was very pleased. Nice décor and the service was excellent. A great feature about the menu was the variety of locally sourced ingredients. We had the crawfish beignets and the cheese plate for appetizers...excellent!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had eaten at true one other time, immediately after they opened. Everything was good that night too, but they have clearly stepped up their game. Great people, service and attention to detail. Food and service were steller. It's our new go-to in Montgomery.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a treat! We thoroughly enjoyed it as always!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebration made perfect!
My husband took me to True for my birthday. We had a lovely, very quiet dinner with an excellent server who, it turned out, knows our daughter quite well. He was attentive without being intrusive and made some excellent recommendations. Thank you, Dustin! The chicken skin appetizers were a real surprise...crispy, with a little heat. We'll be back and bring friends.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gorgeous ambience, gorgeous food!
wonderful dining experience! such a beautiful restaurant. GREAT service. Food was very good. very progressive restaurant.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
For an appetizer - had poached
For an appetizer - had poached oysters in a butter bean broth - unbelievable! Tried the filet mignon - great piece of meat and prepared with horseradish potato puree! Doesn't get any better. Service was excellent - Travis is a standard @ True. Definitely our "GO TO", #1 place in Montgomery for us.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Awesome food! Fantastic service! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience! highly recommend the restaurant to those who are interested in great food!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM

Had to stay in the area for
Had to stay in the area for a week for my husbands job and we didn't know where to go for our wedding anniversary. Thanks to our hotel front desk gals they said go to True!! It was great food and great service!!! def a place we would go to all the time if we lived here.
So open one in Texas, please!!! : ))
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were visiting Montgomery and were delighted to find this place. We enjoyed brilliant entrees in a quiet, comfortable environment making our dinner with friends not just delicious, but relaxing as well.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent Experience All Around
We were in town for the weekend and made a reservation at True based on Trip Advisor reviews. What a find! We started with drinks at the bar--the bartender was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer our questions about various liquors. Great drinks, beautiful setting. Dinner and dessert followed and they did not disappoint. Loved every thing we ordered (especially the crawfish beignets, snapper, and shrimp & grits). It was all superb.

A Montgomery Must
Hubby and I spent the week-end in Montgomery. Had a great meal here. Beautifully decorated with mix of modern and rustic. Ambience was very pleasant and relaxing. Service was excellent - attentive but not hovering. Best of all was the food. We went to a Sun. brunch. Menu was small but had both lunch and breakfast offerings. Everything is fresh, local, and many items had a Southern flair. We started with a Bloody Mary- delicious with a nice "kick" to it. We split a bowl of gumbo. Out of this world! I had chicken with homemade dumplings in a creamy sauce. Hubby had shrimp with grits. Both very yummy. Wish this place was in my town. Added bonus - it's near the F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald museum. It made for a very enjoyable Sun. outing.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was nonpretentious
The service was nonpretentious but upscale. The food was delivered on time, attractively displayed and delicious. The wait staff was not overbearing but checked on the table regularly. This was a brunch for me and I had the shrimp and grits with an excellent mimosa. The finishing touch was a pumpkin cheesecake with decaf. Absolutely delicious. The cheesecake was better than either cheescake or pumpkin pie alone. I had a window seat which was perfect for enjoying a few rays of sun. I will return with friends!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice food presentation
The food presentation is very nice and very good quality. The red fish dish was outstanding. I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant of this high value in Montgomery.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was very good
The service was very good the beef tenderloin excellent, I would recommend over the rib-eye....[pre-cooked on the rib-eye which is ok and they made it known] but prefer not that preperation. Chimichuri needs work, not exactly what I have had in Latin America many times.
.... Crawfish Beignets excellent....escargot fair....prefer them a little more garlicy....wine was good...Syrah....would eat there again would be interested in chef specials on the weekends or popular nights.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am in Montgomery for two months and was surprised to find a restaurant of this quality in Montgomery. Enjoyed the appetizers (cheese plate and tomato salad were fantastic) as well as delicious entrees and dessert (pumpkin cheesecake?! YUM).
