Excellent food and ambience as we took advantage of the beautiful weather and sat outside on the patio. Very good service as well as we were taking care of quite well. First time here, but won't be the last.

First visit and it was AMAZING. I recommend the cauliflower as the appetizer! Service is great and a manager came by to check to see if everything is ok. Our server gave us great recommendations and being our first time, it was helpful.

Everything was just satisfactory. My panang curry tasted very inauthentic but wasn't bad, just satisfactory. It is a safe choice for a quick meal with simple expectations . There are many other better choices in the Domain.

Great. The food is so fresh and expertly prepared.
Offer more specials for the weekdays. Very few people there the evening I went.

We love the principle, but would it harm to have a few sweet potato fries as an option? Super salads and a really lovely panang curry.

Innovative dishes...love the seasonal offerings! Service was attentive, answered questions knowledgeably.
The edamame dumplings were amazing (could have eaten twice the amount!) and the two bowls that we ordered were equally at great! I also love the bright green comfy seating!

Service was so slow we nearly walked out while waiting for a waitperson. Lengthy waits for beverages and then for entrees. They did not appear to be busy.

Great food
Service was slow even though the place was relatively empty for a Friday night
Our first drinks took forever to come

Also the lighting (in both locations) is terrible. It is too bright for a good ambiance and the center lights are akin to interrogation spotlights

We had never been here before and made a reservation for 10 for a special family occasion. The food was delicious and healthy with a complex and creative layering of flavors. We had people with diverse tastes and everyone was very happy with their food. We had everything from fish tacos to hearty lasagna, edamame dumplings, pizza, chicken satay, hummus, etc. and everything was delicious. The sangria and drinks were also delicious and a creative mix of flavors. We will definitely be back!

I like this place. The food is super healthy. It’s also absolutely delicious.

I think it’s a great place especially when you’re going to dinner and you’re not sure what everyone likes (or had for dinner the last few nights). The menu has a wide variety but everything is great.

Go for it.

First time to visit but far from the last...we LOVED True Food Kitchen! My gf is GF and they had tons of tasty choices for her...she even ordered the lasagna, well we both did and it was delicious. Jonah, our server, was most courteous, extremely professional and incredibly helpful...he deserves a raise and a big promotion, just say'n. Can't wait to go back and try some of their other tasty choices!

It was a good experience and the service was top notch.
The crudités was excellent
The curry with extra salmon was excellent
The edamame dumplings were very good
The chicken pollard was dry and tough. The accompanying salad was delicious but the chicken was inedible. My wife never returns anything and never complains (particularly when with friends); we rarely on your quality control to avoid this type of problem.

Great food, never feel stuffed when dining at True Foods. A savory blend of seasonings and fresh grains/root vegetables lets you are eating well. The flavor of the food at True Foods is savory and delicious - unlike most healthy food restaurants in which I have eaten. Service is exceptional with a smile and a real concern for our satisfaction. Baked goods and pastries are terrific, the bakery chef, Alba, is a sweetheart.

This is my second time to visit True Food Kitchen. The first was last weekend during a business trip to Houston. We were in Austin for the day, so I took my family. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals! I ordered the same as last week ( Ancient Grains Bowl with tofu and it came out exactly the same. Consistency across locations is key! Can’t wait until you get here to San Antonio!

Great to have a vegetarian/vegan friendly eatery in Austin, especially in The Domain. Alas, the dishes we tried were overly-complicated. The pizza was greasy and the sauces/dressings on the other items overwhelming, leaving both of us feeling yucky (no other word for it) for several hours. Given that we can eat at some of our favorite places in NYC, Paris, or Madrid for the same (or less!), it is unlikely we'll be back.
