I had the chicken parmigiana with vegetables. The chicken was tasty and the vegetables were excellent
Good food collection.
We made a reservation for 6 people on open table, but the restaurant did not honor it. The one hostess was really rude to our group and made us wait an hour for a table that we had a confirmed reservation for.
However, the drinks and food slightly made up for her poor customer service skills. We enjoyed our meal and once we got to our seat, the service was overall pretty good.
I am so sorry to hear about the misunderstanding at our host stand. My name is Christy Babcock and I am the dining room manager here at True Food Kitchen Columbus. I would love the opportunity to talk to you over the phone so I can personally see that this situation gets fix and to invite you back in to have the experience you deserve. We truly are sorry to hear that our expectations were not met on this visit and we are thankful for the feedback. I look forward to hearing from you.
Appetizer came out before drinks! Bar was a little backed up - chicken Parmesan a little dry but still had good flavor - chicken in Cobb salad was a little dry to - have been here several times and love it - tonight’s was not exceptional but it was still good
Thank you so much for your feedback, we truly appreciate every coaching opportunity for our team to become better. We are so sorry that the chicken was not up to our standards and would love to have you back in to find a dish you absolutely love on us for your next visit. Please contact me at the store my name is Christy Babcock and I am the dining room manager!
We are very frequent diners at TFK. We asked for outside seating and some spacing as we are high risk. We were sat at a table for two no more than 2 feet from an adjacent table. Some 4-seat tables with much more spacing were available but the hostess said she couldn’t seat us there as they were too busy.
We left and ate somewhere else that was more accommodating.
You just screwed some very loyal customers and acted like you didn’t care.
We thank you for leaving us feedback, we use this to coach our team to ensure a great guest experience. I want to personally apologize that we fell short on this visit and would love the opportunity to continue having you in as a loyal guest. If you would please call me at the store I would love to talk to you and make this right as this is not the high standard we hold ourselves to. I look forward to talking to you soon. - Lisa Fox, General Manager
Overall good experience. One of the best patio seating areas!
We had the shrimp tacos and the chopped salad with salmon. The shrimp was surprisingly fresh and the salmon was perfectly grilled. The balance of the salad was flavorful and combined different textures and flavors. We will definitely return.
My only objection is that the noise level was higher than I would prefer. We could still converse without raising our voices, but all the voices and sounds rebounded from the walls and lessened our enjoyment of the meal. we may try an outdoor table on our next visit to avoid this issue
David, thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review and the 5 stars! Next time you're in we would love for you to enjoy the patio space!
My first time there- great quinoa salad and service outside on the covered patio.
Thanks for the 5 stars, happy you got to enjoy our lovely patio :) We look forward to serving you again!
Great food and service!! Can’t wait to go back!
Thank you so much for the review Susan! We're very lucky to have such a warm and welcoming Team and happy to hear that we took such great care of you. We look forward to hosting you at TFK again soon! :D :D
Wonderful as always!!! Love True Foods in all locations so thrilled to have one here locally :)
Thank you so much Heather and thanks for being a loyal fan :) We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit at TFK Columbus and look forward to having you back soon.
Love the patio. Very comfortable.
Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly
Jan-Thank you so much for this stellar review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed TFK and we look forward to hosting you again soon! Thrilled to hear you had great service :)
Menu has fresh food but very limited, small portions (especially for price- over $50 for a salad, two tacos, and two non-alcoholic drinks) and missing some basics for picky eaters. My husband and I eat out a lot and have been servers before, so we are pretty flexible when it comes to service. The server barely came to our table, didn’t check on food and drinks, stood there and waited for our credit card without offering the check, etc. I rarely leave a review like this, but with all the choices for dining in the area, felt like I needed to share.
Always excellent and delicious.
Gregory, thanks for your loyalty. We're so happy to hear you always have a 5 star experience! Have an amazing week!!!
Food was good. Place was nice. Server forced the check on us before we were even done eating. Never cleared the dirty plates.
Clint, thanks for the review! We would appreciate if we could have more details if you are willing to share. We use this information to coach and continue to be better. Please reach out to me at the store so we can make it right for you. -Lisa Fox, General Manager
A unique experience. Food choices were interesting. My granddaughter and I throughly enjoyed it. My husband liked it and my son who is a true carnivore not so much
Thanks for your feedback and taking the time to leave it! We hope to have you back in :)
great place. food was excellent. good job on social distancing of tables
Thank you so much Doug! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit at TFK and look forward to having you back soon!
Everything was incredibly delicious!! They were out of a few items but all other choices were just as good as what we wanted. Pricey, but healthy, good food is worth it.

Thank you so much for shouting from the rooftops just how awesome TFK is, we can't wait to have you join us again. Thank you Allison!
This has become our favorite restaurant for lunch, after having visited twice. The food is healthful and beautifully prepared, and the service was great. Excellent cappuccino, salads, and brunch menu.
Beverly, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled you had such a pleseant experience and look forward to serving you again!
Ordered the Shrimp tacos like 3 others at our table and it came with the shells on. Food was a little on the cold side as well. Best thing we had were drinks.
So sorry to heard that your shrimp tacos were not up to our standards. We will use this as a coaching team for our back of house associates and chef team. We would love to have you back in and give you the experience you deserve. We are however glad to hear you liked the drinks!
too noisy but fresh and well-prepared food and great wait staff
Wow honestly the food was more than I could imagine! I haven’t felt this good leaving a restaurant in years! The server was so amazing, and knew the menu like the back of her hand. We’re a picky table ( haha) and she handled it and accommodated us easily and made my boyfriend a super fan as well. I can’t not stress how good the watermelon tartar is ! For sure coming back next week! Go now and bring all your family and friends you won’t regret!!!
Wow! Thank you so so much for all the kind words! We cannot stress how grateful we are for repeat happy guests! Thank you for taking the time to leave such an amazing review and we look forward to having you back!
So excited True Food Kitchen is finally in Columbus, I used to go in Boca and have missed it since moving to Ohio. The whole experience was delightful. Thank you to our wonderful server/bartender Grace and the management team for making our evening so special and sending dessert out with a candle for my grandmothers birthday! I had to talk her into coming and now it’s one of her new favorite places.
Thank you so much! We were so excited to have you and your grandmother in to celebrate her birthday! We love that we became one of her favorties and cannot wait to have you back in! Thank you again for choosing us!
It was to celebrate birthdays! Everyone was great!
Erin we think you are five stars too!
Ok to try but the service on top of the price of the food doubtful I will return.
Will be and empty building at Easton by spring of next year.
We are so sorry to hear about your experience. This is not up to our standards and is not the experience we wanted you to have! Please reach out to our management team so we can learn how to fix this!
Vegan Double cheeseburger was really good service was awful
This was my first time at True Kitchen and I loved everything about it!! Service and atmosphere were great and really enjoyed the food and that it tasted so fresh!

Love this restaurant. never disappoints. I tried the Watermelon/Avocado Tar Tar and was delicious!!!
Thank you is much! We are running the Watermelon and Avocado Tartare special till the end of July!
Once again, the food was outstanding, our server was attentive, and our experience was enjoyable.
Thank you so much! We strive to make the guest experience wonderful every time!
Because our out of town guests were on a tight schedule, we decided to go to True Food Kitchen because the restaurant takes reservations. We were impressed with the look of the restaurant - bright colors, clean and airy, modern look, nice looking patio. The menu definitely offered something to please everyone. Because we were there on a weekend, we were able to order from the brunch menu as well as the regular menu. We were happy to see so many vegetarian entrees. The presentation of our meals was very attractive. Ingredients were all fresh, colorful, and delicious. The restaurant is conveniently located near both a parking garage, and a large parking lot. We will definitely be returning to the True Food Kitchen.
Elaine, Thank you so much for the kind words! We are happy that you and your guests had an amazing time! Brunch is for sure one of our favorites as well! Cannot wait to have you back
Eat outside on the nice patio. Vegan pizza was really good. Hostess
was good and waitress was really busy but did good too.
Exciting news our patio is open year round, and we always have a vegan pizza on the menu! Thank you so much and we will see you soon!
I had high hopes after seeing other reviews and looked forward to dining here. Started out by ordering a glass of Pino Grigio. The server came back and said they were out of it, so I ordered a glass of Chardonnay instead. At least 20 minutes went by and I had no wine. Although it was a busy Saturday night, people who were seated next to us received their bottle of wine (from the same server) while I was still waiting for my glass to appear. Finally it arrived with a sorry. My friend and I split the cauliflower appetizer. It was decent. I ordered the spaghetti squash casserole. The portion was tiny and it was rather mushy. The cheese melted on top was the best part. When the bill came everything was on one check. How about asking your customers if they would like everything on one bill or separate? Overall my experience was disappointing and this place missed the mark in several areas. I won’t be returning.
Always a fantastic dinner, service, and atmosphere at True Food!! Highly recommend.
True Food Kitchen had many good menu choices. I also tried something from the drink and the dessert menu. Both were very good. I would definitely go here again.
Great service, good food, bright, open restaurant. Very happy.
Thank you so much for this review! We really strive for this time of experience every time for every guest! See you soon!
