Excellent service, lovely surroundings, comfortable, un-cramped. Fabulous menu! Loved everything! Butternut squash soup with a hint of coconut, delicious! A wonderful place for gluten-free diners.

I would try it again. But I had a stomach ache for 24+ hours. Don’t know what caused it other than the Brussel sprouts. Two of us got sick.
Next time guess I’ll be careful what I order idk 🙁

The food was delicious! Our server explained the concept of the restaurant and made suggestions based on his favorite items. The kale salad was very good and I would definitely return and order it again.

food ,service, and staff were amazing and very helpful to go out of there way to make our dinner wonderful, I think the portions of the food for the price was a bit on the smaller side. Don't mind paying for a meal but I shouldn't walk out still being hungry.

Great food. My best friend has Crohn's & enjoyed our meal with ease. She is always worried about what she can or can't eat but there were so many options for her. I don't have any issues & it's delicious for me too

Took to long to get drinks(including water) and our waiter was a little to quick to get us to order food(apps and entrees before we even had such drinks). But other than that I love their food and atmosphere.

Our family plus a couple of college kids came to celebrate the kick off of the new school year. They were running a special: bowls and bottles. Buy any two bowls and a bottle of wine for $40. The good was fantastic, the service was great, the company was wonderful. We had such a lovely evening!

We love True Food Kitchen . The healthy options, the caring staff.
The cauliflower appetizer was great. The turkey burger, even though had a great number of sauces, was bland. Maybe because we pulled off the top half of the bun. Please put the cheese and sauces on the burger.
The red fish was awesome.
We support you and want you to be successful so you will stay.

I’d recommend but with reservations. Service in the past was good. This time our server took our order and then was nowhere to be seen until time to bring the bill. Not appreciated since one of our party needed something during the meal. Also, I had the Ancient Grains Bowl. I’ve had this multiple times previously and it seemed to have shrunk alarmingly! Overall disappointing compared to prior visits.

The salad And flatbread were good. We had to go through two glasses of wine, which were both poured from the same bottle, before finding one that tasted unspoiled, and the wine selection was poor. In addition, this is an extremely loud restaurant. However, the bartenders were so kind and helpful and genuine, and we felt the service was quite good.

This place is too noisy for anyone with hearing aids—by a lot. The “background music” is dominating, which encourages shouting at companions, leading to over 80 decibels before the rush began. It was quite unpleasant. The menu is mostly small plates and snack food. There are some meals but the choices are limited. This restaurant seems to cater to the 20s demographic. Our server was excellent but I could not hear her over the din. My pizza (unusual for me for supper) was dry and lacked much taste. My wife enjoyed her curry dish, so I conclude I ordered poorly. We probably won’t be returning because this type of place is not what we really want for a Friday evening. It is probably a good choice for those whose tastes run to noisy restaurants filled with noisy people who are not looking for very well-prepared meals and who do not mind shouting across the table to be heard. Not a place for intimate conversation, to say the least.
