Thank you so much!!!
The shrimp tacos were amazing! I will be back. I like having the option to go to a healthy food restaurant
Very good experience and great food
This place is classy in a simple way. Our server was kind, knowledgeable, remembered our small requests and wasn’t overbearing.
The food was outstanding! My husband and I are using the Noom app and this place fit perfectly for us as we are new at changing our eating habits to healthier.
We will go back, I’m sure!
Thank you for your awesome review, Tricia! We cannot wait to see you again soon!
Great food, outstanding service decent wine list. What more do you need?
Thank you Susan!!! We cannot wait to see you again soon!
Awesome cocktails!!! Great prices for healthy clean eating
Thanks a million for your review!
Noise level can be distracting - no sound buffers. But maybe that is the vibe they are going for. Service is impeccable. Food is good.
Thank you for your review and feedback, Irisar. I hope to see you again soon!
Healthy but never compromise flavor!
Thank you Kacy!!
True Food kitchen has a variety of fresh, healthy options to choose from and the new summer craft cocktail menu is reason enough to go.
Caroline was a great server, and it was wonderful to be able to eat on the patio. The items we tried on the new spring menu were all very tasty. A really wonderful place.
Thank you for the AWESOME review, Judy! I cannot wait to share this review with Caroline. She is going to be so happy! Have a great weekend!
Great drinks, chill atmosphere, healthy but tasty food and nice staff
The food at True Food Kitchen is very good. The choices are unique and the quality has been consistent over the years I have been going. The service is also very good; however the new table technolgy still has a lot of bugs in it and can be frustrating, if this happens to you just ask for help they are quick to accomodate.
We had a wonderful meal here and appreciated the many gluten-free options/preparation with a family member that has an allergy.
Good service, not bad food. Flourless chocolate cake excellent.
Thank you Carlos!!!
Our overall experience was wonderful. I've been to True Food several times and they never disappoint. Aside from the relaxing ambience and excellent food, the service is always outstanding. I highly recommend this place for carnivores and plant-based folk alike. We will return. Thank you!
Thank you for the great review Clint. We hope to see you again soon!
Loved the food (although choices were limited due to the pandemic) and staff were super friendly.
Reasonable pricing as well.
Thank you for the 5 stars. Our spring menu will be available as of Wednesday 4/7 with some fresh new options!
The staff was great, super nice and helpful. My mom loves taking pictures and the hostess nicely offered to take a picture of all of us. We ordered through our phones-probably a covid thing, but the staff walking around made sure if we had any questions that they were there to help. The food & cocktails were so delicious! We will definitely be back. (:
Thank you for the 5 stars!!
This is the second time we've dined at TF. The last time was in Oakbrook where we had a much better experience. But this visit everything was just OK. I wanted to really enjoy it because I love the concept and all of the GF and Veg options. But really it was just OK. I ordered the Sunrise Bowl on the Brunch menu. It didn't list that it had onions. yet it was FILLED with onions, which I can't eat. I didn't want to wait for the server to come back. So I just picked them out. The flavor of the bowl was good. I do like the cilantro pesto. But it still needed more flavor (not onions). Everyone else in the group also thought their dishes were just ok as well. I was excited to try to Banana Pancakes as a shareable dish. But they were not enjoyable at all. I definitely wouldn't order those again. Not sure I will dine here again.
We are sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience. We would like to find a way to make this up to you if you are willing to give us the opportunity. If you could call us at the restaurant and ask for Brien, or message me back your contact info I would like to discuss in more detail.
Do not pass up the Brussel Sprouts starter!!!!
Brien and Nick were terrific!! Thank you for a lovely evening!
We are happy to hear you had such a great experience and hope we see you again soon!
Great place to experience good vegan/vegetarian dishes. Service was excellent. Tasty sparkling prickly pear drink was awesome as well.
Thank you for the great review. We are happy to hear you had such a great experience!
I believe the cooks have changed. The Brussels came out more raw than roasted. The lasagna was missing Bree precious lemon zest and the Spanish Malbec is no longer offered. I was disappointed in these changes but loved the new service options for ordering and payment.
We really appreciate your feedback. I will share your notes regarding the food with our Chef. Also I am sorry you were misinformed however we do still have the Malbec on our menu. We do hope you give us another chance so we can make this up to you.
Birthday Lunch for a healthy friend with light/healthy cocktails to match. Excellent service and wait staff.
Glad to hear your birthday lunch was great! Thanks a million!!!
Perfect venue for indoor dining as the pandemic subsides
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Warm greeting and no waiting. Good social distancing and mask restrictions. Great decor. Very open and clean. Drinks were outstanding though a bit expensive. Food was delicious and only complaint is TOO MANY options. Will always visit when in Chicago!
Thank you SO SO MUCH!!! We hope you come back to Chicago soon!
One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. Healthy, creative, good food. My family goes there on a regular basis
Thank you so much for your review! More importantly, thank you for coming in and being such a loyal guest! We cannot wait to see you again!
I love this spot for a unique, healthy find! There are delicious options on the menu tor everyone!
Thanks for the awesome review, Meredith!!! We can't wait to see you again soon!

Thank you so much, Sonm! I really appreciate all the stars!
Great dinner in a great atmosphere. Had a table off in a corner where we felt safe and comfortable. Food was outstanding, good music, nice vibe. Would definitely go back!
Thanks a million Diane!!! We look forward to seeing you again!
The food was great especially the ancient bowl. Beautiful interior! Perfect for a first date! It was quite cold in the restaurant though.
Thank you for the review, Akeya!
First time going here this past Sunday, and the food was excellent. The service was top notch. Give it a try!
Thanks so much Jey!!! We cannot wait to see you again soon!
Great food and atmosphere!
Thanks so much!!!
effective set up despite covid restrictions. Order/menu online and they bring it out pretty quickly after ordering. Food was amazing as always.
Thank you Melissa!!!
My friend did t like that her tofu in the Korean noodles was charred. I had the grain bowl and I didn’t mind the char in the tofu. I always like the food. I think the safety precautions are very good.
Thank you, Margie
A really good healthy option with a wonderful vibe. I'll be back!
We are looking forward to it, Sean! Thank you for the awesome review!
Overall, we had a very good experience. The food was great and they easily accommodated our dietary restrictions (we were currently doing the Whole30).
I was frustrated by the fact that we had a reservation, and when we showed up (on time), we were told that they were really busy and there were a number of people "ahead of us" – 20 minute wait or so. I understand that this occasionally happens if a restaurant overbooks, but in that situation, I would expect a small gesture like comping a drink or 5% off. I assume this is a rare thing, but in the winter, a 20 minute wait outside is no joke.
Thank you for your review, Dan. Please accept my apologies about your wait. It is a rare situation, but I understand your frustration. Next time you come in, please reach out to me. I would like to make sure your next visit is nothing short of exceptional. Cheers! Joel Ryan Assistant General Manager 312-204-6981
Great service, Covid protocols and food!
Thank you!!! We can't wait for you to come back soon!
Did not appreciate having to order through the app, tried to order through the server several times.
Thank you for your review. I am truly sorry you did not enjoy your experience with our online ordering. Our staff should always be there for you to take your order and provide a traditional dining experience if you choose. Since this did not seem to be the case, please reach out to me at your convenience and I would love to set you up with the dining experience you are looking for. I look forward to hearing from you! Joel Ryan Assistant General Manager 312-204-6981
Always good food and great drinks! Never disappointed when I eat here.
Thanks Lori! You're the BEST!
Food was amazing. However, the host lied to us directly in our face about moving us to a better seat away from the entrance where it was cold. She stated when a double seat table is available she would move us and we saw a double seated table and instead of moving us there. She proceeded to sit other people there who had reservations after we spoke to her.
Yohance, Thank you for telling us about your experience. I will be sure to share this feedback with my team, so this will not happen again. I hope to see you again soon!
