Worst service in town. This used to be one of our favorites. last time we went it was so bad the manager gave us gift cards to make up for the awful service. Tried it again this week still awful. Sat for 1 hr before we got our food. Sad because the food is good. But there are a lot of good restaurants in Dallas.

Food and service was great; only issue is that it gets quite crowded and becomes hard to hear the person sitting across from you. But that is a good problem!

The food and service were very good. Two vegans and one carnivore had plenty to choose from. Would have liked a vegan entree but there was still lots to pick from. The kitchen service was poor. Mixed up dish, wine and had to send back dessert. The server caught the wine, but not the dish and dessert. The dessert would not have been possible to detect. Management was very apologetic. I’d definitely go back. No question.

If you want healthier options that taste great, this is your spot. The grapefruit basil martini is a must. Asparagus with lemon almond ricotta appetizer is fresh and yummy. The chop salad was my favorite. I finished every last bite! We also had satay, squash lasagna, and beef tacos. All were flavorful and filling. Service is great; not overly fussy. The space is beautiful with the open kitchen and outdoor areas.

This time service was very disappointing, waiter disappeared fr long periods of time and most of our food arrived cold. It’s not usually like this, we always come to TFK. Hope it’s better next time

I love the concept of the restaurant, but my friends and I were underwhelmed with our meals. Specifically, the “kids” meal we got for my son (almond butter sandwich) was not kid friendly at all - it was adult-sized and difficult for a toddler to handle on his own, with huge apple slices inside the sandwich and a side of huge carrot sticks (like, full on carrots that had not been sliced in any way) Anyway, I was bummed because my expectations were high. Personally, I much prefer Modern Market or Flower Child over this restaurant. Similar concepts, but much better execution.

Great service at the door and table. Solid menu options with flexibility offered to meet the palette. Solid turkey sandwich, enhanced by its well-dressed status. Good poke bowl, but don’t looking for wasabi.

I had a group of six people with different culinary tastes and everyone thought it was delicious. I am gluten-free and vegan and I really appreciate all the options. The restaurant is so popular that it can be noisy but we still had a very good time.

Don’t pass up on a chance to visit True Food Kitchen. Who knew eating healthy could be so tasty! 😋 We sat on the patio which is quite nice and enjoyed a signature cocktail 🍹 before our meal. Both the chopped salad 🥗 and seasonal cauliflower polenta bowl were fabulous. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. No doubt we’ll be back!

We had a fabulous brunch on the patio for Mother's Day. The GM, Karl, came by our table and chatted with us. The servers were all very friendly and one of them even stopped what they were doing to take a photo of us. The food and mom-osas were delicious! Even with a busy mother's day, they did not miss a beat.

Love this place. I want to eat everything! My family took me here for Mother's Day...the one time they agree to go to a place where mom will truly enjoy the food. But they (my husband and kids) gave me a terrible time b/c they could not find anything on the menu that they would eat, and it was painful to give in to letting them have a plain cheese pizza (the kids eat this all the time at school, at birthday parties, at home when we are crushed for time, so when we are out to eat I don't allow it). But they complained and gave me a hard time b/c they could not find anything else to order. Made me feel like a terrible mom b/c I raised kids who could not order a dish with vegetables cooked into it, and my husband took their side. So I gave in. Ugh! My suggestion: offer a few plain dishes for the culinarily challenged guests who are there just to be company for someone who is there who loves the food. Examples: grilled cheese with a side of tomato basil soup (no chunks), choose-your-own grain bowl with choose-your-own ingredients (rice/quinoa/farro with choice of protein and choice of sides), plain ol' fresh squeezed lemonade or OJ, etc. I talked with another mom who had a similar experience (we both have 3 boys...maybe that says something!). We decided we will never bring our families again, and next time will go with just like-minded girlfriends!

The restaurant has a nice selection of items for all foodie types. I was disappointed with my chicken sausage with gouda pizza. Bland and the cheese was over melted as if there wasn't any cheese, I had this same or similar pizza with chicken sausage a few years ago. I preferred the sausage sliced and grilled before being placed on the pizza. The sausage was ground so fine it was if there was very little on the pizza. Service was spot on.

Quinoa was very undercooked. Fish tacos way too salty. Drinks were tasty but we really weren’t sure there was any alcohol in them.

I have always loved this restaurant because I like to eat healthy but the service here is getting worse and worse. Food comes out and is brought to wrong tables.....goes back to kitchen....shows back up, cold but he time it arrives. Food comes at different times. Waiter hard to find when you need help (especially if you eat outside). Had fish tacos and they were WAY OVERSALTED. Could not eat them, but our margarita Pizza was fabulous and salmon dish was good. Again, service here needs some work!

Great menu for a variety of diets, including vegan, with fish and poultry options too. Appetizers were great, especially the brussel sprouts - which we ordered a second of. Enjoyed the citrus based cocktail as well. Second time dining here and will be coming again, perhaps for brunch next time.

Food was outstanding as always, and service was top notch, probably the best we’ve ever had. Our waiter went above and beyond to get a coloring page and crayons for our little guy. We almost always get a pizza and the inside out quinoa burger and it did not disappoint! It’s refreshing to feel nourished when eating at a restaurant, not just full.

One of my favorite places. I was very impressed that I put birthday on my reservation and without skipping a beat, they brought a brownie sundae with a candle to our table after our meal.

The customer service was on point and the food delicious as usual.
