My wife and I had dinner with another couple. We had a 7PM reservation on a Friday. The other couple was very late. Our server was fantastic, didn't rush us and never made us feel uncomfortable. Food was great as always. Thanks!

The server had far too many tables to provide even average service. 2 Pizzas were cold , inexcusable. The chair was awful. Small and uncomfortable. Hummus was great.

Our server was very pleasant, however I received the wrong portion of an appetizer and she had to bring out another one. My dinner was delicious, but 2 of my table mates ordered very specific changes with their meals. When their dinners arrived the kitchen did not honor their requests and the food had to go back. Overall a good experience and I would go back, but be careful about ordering any changes to the menu.

delicious food; I just wish the tables were not right next to each other. My husband and I were on a date but could hear every word the tables next to us were saying. It took away from the "getting out for the night together" feel.

I frequent true foods often. It is one of my favorite health conscious restaurants. I usually love the experience, but this last visit, service was really poor. The waitress did not check up on us that often and we actually sat through 90% of the meal without water. Out of desperation, we asked a bus boy bussing the table next to us for water and did not receive it until we finally flagged down the waitress towards the end of the meal for water. Hopefully this is just a fluke and the next experience will be better. The restaurant was also very loud, and we found ourselves needing to shout at each other to have a conversation. I usually find the ambiance to be “lively”, but that night was particularly loud. Food is great as always. Hoping the service is better next time.

Patrick Dryden took amazing care of us after having a less than pleasant experience prior. He more than redeemed our thoughts on True Foods and we will be back soon! Refreshing that a manager cares enough to reach out, apologize and make it right when they fail to impress.

True Food is not a place for the “average” diner. It is noisy, crowded, expensive, and the menu is limited. Probably a better fit for someone under 50.

True Food is the only place we can take our daughter, who has several severe food allergies, to eat where she can get an actual full meal and not just some small item. She can enjoy a meal that actually has all the fixings!! They are also so respectful to us and don’t make us feel bad about our situation.

-the music was too loud
-I'd compare the quality of food to Frozen entrees from Whole Foods. Even my side sweet potatoes were bland (absolutely no seasoning) and did not appear fresh. They seriously looked like they had been frozen and just thrown in the microwave.
-my breakfast sandwich was very dry and once again tasted and looked like something out of the Whole Food's freezer section.
-service was slow but my server was very professional

I am sorry to hear that the quality of food was subpar on this visit. Our food is much better quality than what you experienced. I can assure you that our fish and sweet potatoes are fresh and never frozen. I would love to hear more details about this visit so please feel free to contact me at the restaurant.
