Good Vegetarian Options
At True Food, we have a simple philosophy: serve seasonal, honest food that tastes really good. We’re a group of health-minded people that care about what we put in our bodies, as well as the footprint we leave on the environment. The ingredients coming in the back door are clean, mostly organic (we follow the Dirty Dozen) and never fake or artificial. Whether you're into the latest superfood salad or just want a pizza and burger, you'll find it here. Want a blended juice or a martini? We've got both. The chefs make everything from scratch, which means you'll know what's in your food and where it came from. At the end of the day, it's all about great food and great service.

I really, really love the food at this restaurant. It is healthy and delicious. Our waiter was so good and I am sad I cannot recall his name as he has waited on us twice and I would like to acknowledge him.

Definitely a must stop for my coworker and me when we are traveling through Kansas City!

We have been to True Food twice. Our food was good both times. Both times our drinks took 20+ minutes, and we had two rounds. Something they definitely need to work on.

Healthy, creative food choices. We went early (5pm) and the noise level was fine. As the evening progressed the noise level increased as did the crowd, but we were still able to carry on a conversation. We all enjoyed the food, but as usual, some more than others. In general, we felt things were a little overpriced, but we did appreciate the fresh creative menu, and we will go back occasionally.

Great looking environment with friendly staff. Food a tad pricey and bland but to be fair this menu wasn't my norm. I recommend taking a good look at the menu before visiting.

Came for Happy Hour, so didn't order off the main menu. We did have the edamame guacamole, which was tasty. Our server was very accommodating and efficient. Seems they can adapt menu items to cater to dietary restrictions. It's not the coziest feeling place, but I would definitely go back and try things from the main menu.

Restaurant was not super busy, but we were sat right next to another table with people. The other table all they did was complain to each other about life. We could have been sat a table away to have a better experience.

A little noisy for a table of eight but the place is lively. Someone’s coffee was cold so they made a new batch ( no micro wave which is a good thing). The food is fresh and on a busy Saturday night we were served very quickly. Their hummus was homemade, edamame dumplings were surprisingly good. I felt their curry could have been spicier but I was glad for the change of pace with quinoa instead of rice. This is a great spot for vegetarian/non veg mixed parties.

The food was fresh and delicious! We were seated in the booth nearest to the kitchen, so we felt like we missed out on some of the ambience in the dining room (couldn’t hear music, just staff in the kitchen). We will definitely be back because the food and drinks were great!

My meal was served at a lukewarm temperature- including the salmon. The salmon was $9 to add, making my lunch Winter Immunity bowl $23. It lacked flavor. My friend ordered a wrap instead of a bun for her burger. It came with the bun & she waited 20 min for a new one. The staff was very friendly, but we felt the value lacked for the price point. My other experiences there have been good, but I’m unsure if the food quality is worth the price point and doubt I’ll return.

Our waiter was super mice and the venue is fresh and nicely appointed but the food is just average at best while being BERY expensive. Lunch (two salads and a cup of tea was $50 w/tip)

Our server did an awesome job. Very helpful. Husband had one of the restaurant week feature. Very good. I had a fish taco and a steak taco. Both tasty but favored the fish taco. I did think that $20 for two tacos was a bit expensive.

Hubby loved their vegan pizza and that they have some vegan menu options since he has a dairy allergy. Server was very sweet but a bit slow at times. Some menu items seem a bit over-priced. We were seated at a tiny table that was unstable and kept rocking around and it was near the door, so it was cold. That's certainly fine if it's busy and we're walk-ins, but it was a slow night and we had reservations, yet we got one of the worst tables in the restaurant. My hubby was really happy with having several selections that he could eat, so we'll likely be back and keep our fingers crossed that we get a better table next time.

Thank you so much for your review and feedback! I have located the table and had it removed. I also had a conversation with the Hosts about proper seating and being more aware, especially on the colder days. My name is Jenna and I am the General Manager here. Next time you are in, please ask for me so that I can send you out some great new items off of our Winter to menu to try. I think you might love the new Immunity bowl that is Vegan. Thank you again, and I hope to see you soon!
