We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant while in Chicago for the weekend. But it just didn’t measure up. The chicken dish was overly salty. Too many capers and olives together. The vanilla ice cream had a coconut aftertaste. Service was good. I can respect their efforts to prepare and serve food that is healthy but the flavors were just off.

Lovely place, recommend it .. But... I got the feeling at brunch that they were pushing you out as quick as possible.. They gave me the bill literally when I was on main and the dessert had'nt even turned up 😳

Our waitress was so rude and inattentive. We were simultaneously rushed and neglected (pressure to order but no cream or spoon with coffee. Brought check immediately after finishing mains but 15 Minutes went by before she came back for credit cards). So disappointing since the food was actually delicious.

We had a GREAT dinner at True Foods! Even though there was a mistake due to a dairy allergy (mistakes are very uncommon here), the staff was right on it and resolved it quickly and following this the manager was very attentive to our needs and my specific food allergy. Due to their mistake, the manager did not charge us for our meal. Although this was unnecessary, and we didn't know until we asked for the check...it made a lasting impression on the attentiveness to good service at this restaurant. Also, the food was GREAT as was the overall service. I can't wait to go back.

They sat us away from the door when we requested a different table. They accommodated all my dietary restrictions! But, I will say the main course took over an hour to arrive. We weren’t in a hurry, but they didn’t offer to make that up to us in any way. Would have made a difference. Otherwise 5 stars!

True Food Kitchen used to be my favorite Go-To spot. This time it was a bust. Food was terrible, Service was mediocre and overall the quality seemed to have taken a nose dive. I could barely get to the restroom because all the DoorDashers were lined up waiting for their pick up order. It was very disappointing as I thought this was the break-through restaurant in healthy clean eating.

Everything i have ever eaten here has been incredibly good. I could eat here every day. While great for vegetarians and vegans, folks who eat fish and meat wont be disappointed either. The cocktails are great too and the prices are very reasonable.

Great ambiance. I can hear the people I’m talking to. Service is quick and staff are friendly.

Food was excellent, the only complaint is that the potato hash was burnt. I also specified that this was for a birthday and thought the server would have brought out a small piece of cake for my father, the birthday boy.

We were disappointed with our server- not very friendly. You would think he would have greeted us when we were seated. We even had to ask for water. Disappointing. He seemed like he did not want to work on New Year’s Day.

We usually enjoy our experience. This time was different. I ordered a latte and it was spilled all over the outside if the cup. Then we had Brussels that tasted like they were cooked earlier then reheated. Then we were informed there would be a 10 min wait Bc they ran out of vegan mayo. Then the food came without any mayo. We got new food 20 min after that. Mine came with the wrong side. It was just not a good experience.
